.:. Summer's P.O.V .:.
I sat in my bedroom with my legs crossed on my bed trying to study for my final exams. Ronnie was sitting on the floor with her back to the bed while Olivia was sitting on the couch. Each one of us was holding her book.
"This is impossible" I stated slamming the book shut as Olivia sighed.
"Agreed" said Ronnie slamming her book shut too.
"Well duh, you guys skipped a whole month of school" said Olivia as Ronnie stood up and put the book on my desk than leaned by my window.
"Jealous much?" Ronnie asked as Olivia rolled her eyes.
"Girls?" asked mum outside the bedroom door as Ronnie walked to the door and opened it. Mum was standing there holding a tray with orange juice glasses on it and a plate of salty crackers "I thought you guys could need a study snack".
"Thanks mum" I said as she put the tray on a coffee table.
"So how's the studying working out for you girls?" asked mum as I shrugged.
"They skipped a lot of school so it won't be easy" said Olivia as mum nodded.
"Summer, can I have a word with you?" asked mum. I nodded and walked with her outside the room and shut the door.
"What's wrong?" I asked as she shook her head.
"Nothing's wrong" said mum smiling "I just want to let you know how proud I am that you're back on your feet again and as for the exams…I'm asking you to just pass this year, I don't want super grades, I just want you to pass ok?".
"Thanks mum" I said as she smiled.
"Now go back to your friends and don't waste time" said mum "The clock is ticking".
"I know" I said nodding before she walked downstairs and I walked back inside to find Olivia and Ronnie standing freakishly close to the door.
"You guys were spying?" I said more of statement than a question.
"Like it was actually worth spying on?" said Ronnie sarcastically before throwing herself on my bed "Like mum hasn't gave me enough of these".
.:. Raymond's P.O.V .:.
I sat on the kitchen table across Jessica while we were studying our SAT's or at least trying to, Jessica was constantly glancing at me every 3 seconds it was…horrifying.
I looked up at her and she was looking at me again but quickly looked down once I saw her.
"Ok" I sighed slamming the book shut as Jessica look at me surprised "If you want me to throw my complete future away so we can gaze at each others eyes than just tell me cause I can't study like this anyway".
"Fine Raymond, I like looking at you, sue me" said Jessica sounding upset while slamming her book shut and standing up.
"I didn't mean that" I laughed as she rolled her eyes "just sit down".
She sighed and sat back down. For a second there was silence but of course Jessica can't let us live in peace.
"You know, I'm 8 month pregnant" said Jessica as I chuckled cause she keeps using that card "And you said you loved me, maybe you didn't mean it but I believed it and I meant it which makes me better than you".
"Yeah than you lied to me and said I got you pregnant just so you won't be living on the streets and even thought you totally stabbed me in the back I still made you live with me" I said sarcastically "You're defiantly a better person Jessica".
She seemed speechless so I looked back down at my book and ignored her.
"I'm sorry" she said breaking the silence as I looked up at her and she looked really upset…not the usual fake upset but really upset "You're right, I shouldn't have done that but…I had no other choice".
"Yeah, right" I said sarcastically rolling my eyes as I looked back at the book.
"I'm serious" said Jessica as I kept looking at the book "If I told you the truth you'd kick me out".
"Jessica, look around you" I snapped looking up at her "Are you on the streets? No, you told me the truth and you're still living with me, do you wanna know why?".
"Why?" she said looking scared.
"Because you got a grip and faced me" I said "You could've kept lying about this and I wouldn't have found out but you didn't, you chose to face me and I respect that more than you think".
"Thank you" said Jessica in shock.
"You're welcome, now leave me finish my studying" I said as she nodded and looked back at her book as I shook my head in disbelief and looked back at my book too.
.:. Ronnie's P.O.V .:.
"Nervous?" Olivia asked me as we stood in the hallway with Summer before the exams. Summer was standing there quietly looking frozen.
"No, so much crap happened this year so if I get into summer school, I won't be surprised" I said shrugging as I looked at Summer "Are you ok, Summer? You look… nervous".
"I'm not nervous" sighed Summer snapping out of her gaze "Where's Raymond?".
I rolled my eyes, she was about to enter the exams and all she could think about was Raymond?
"He's with Jessica studying" said Olivia "I saw them in his car".
"Oh" said Summer surprised "Well that's good…he's studying…. With Jessica".
I noticed that her breathing became really heavy and I looked at her concerned.
"Summer, are you ok?" I asked as Summer looked at me and nodded.
"Yeah, I'm fine" said Summer smiling "I have to be fine cause this is our final exams, I can't screw up".
The exams door opened and people started walking in.
.:. Summer's P.O.V .:.
I sat on my exam seat frozen in my place while staring at the blank paper. All the questions seemed so easy yet…..They weren't. I don't know how much time passed while I sat there and it terrified me that most of the people were almost done and I haven't even started.
It seemed like I was stuck in a time hole, time was passing around me but I was still frozen at the same place.
Ronnie was sitting in the front and so was Olivia while I sat in the last seat. I tried to answer but I couldn't even hold my pencil, I just sat there doing completely nothing.
"Half the time has past" said the teacher "If you wish to leave than go ahead but remember to double check your answers".
I felt like I'm walking on air as I picked up my test and walked to the teacher's desk as the whole class looked at me impressed.
"Finished?" asked the teacher surprised as I nodded and put the test on her desk than ran out of class. I kept running until I got into janitors closet and hid there. I sat in the closet's corner hugging my knees to my chest and praying this would be over.
.:. Raymond's P.O.V .:.
"How did you do?" asked a very excited Jessica as she ran out of the exam hall.
"I kicked SAT's ass" I said as she jumped and hugged me one of those long awkward hug that I just wanted to end.
"We both did so well on our exams" she squeaked as I pushed her gently away from me and she looked offended "What? I can't hug you?".
"Of course you can" I said shrugging as she shook her head in disbelief.
"Raymond, I'm trying to fix things with you" said Jessica as I sighed "I don't want you to feel awkward with me or feel uncomfortable hugging me".
"Of course I don't" I said "I-"
But I was surprised when I couldn't speak cause she smashed her lips into mine. I didn't really know what to do but surprisingly I was kissing back. I snapped out of it and grabbed her shoulders pushing her away.
"What the hell are you doing?" I yelled as she looked at me blankly.
"I don't want you to be grossed out by kissing me Raymond" said Jessica as I looked at her in disbelief.
"But I am" I yelled "I want you out of the house from tomorrow".
"Don't be so sure about that" said Jessica as I raised an eyebrow at her "One word from me and Summer will hate you forever".
"Are you blackmailing me?" I said in disbelief as she shrugged.
"I guess I am" said Jessica "I guess this is the kind of relationship we have right now".
I looked at her in disbelief as she walked away.
