Chapter 2: Getting Over Odd Day..
Sunday, last day before school. I groaned. School was something I was NOT looking forward too. As you may have guessed by now, I’m not the most popular in my my school. In fact erase that, I’m not popular at all!. I was and am still teased constantly at school. Mostly for the fact I have no parents. My mother and father died in a car accident when I was barley 11. I believe from a drunk, that’s probably why I get very tender when someone brings up liqour, or any thing of the said beverage. It makes me angry at the fact that people will drink drink and drink until they get so high it could fatefully harm other people. And then once they harm said people, said people’s families have to suffer the consequences. It’s frustrating!.
Ok, so I guess enough of my little ‘spill’ let’s get back to school. So, yes like I’ve said, I’m not popular, and I’m okay with that. It’s the non stop teasing that annoys me. I mean come ON we’re almost in our senior year and still my classmates haven’t grown up. That has to be the most maddening of all.
Oh well, I only have to put up with it for what 2 more years?. If I’ve dealt with it for over 5 years now a couple more won’t do any harm. Might drive me slightly insane but hey, it’s not like I’m not a little already.
I was snapped out of my thoughts by the phone ringing. ‘How long has it been ringing?’ I thought confused. Sitting up from the couch, where I was comfortably seated, I made my way towards the phone. Grabbing it off the hook I answered it. “Hello?” I asked cautiously, almost hesitant.
“Hey!” Came Sid’s bright voice. It wasn’t the annoying squeak you sometimes get. But an uplifting encouraging voice.
“Hey Sid, what’s up?” I asked curiously, plopping myself back on the couch in a UN-lady-like-fashion.
“Nothing much, just thought I’d check up on you.” Sid asked curious, if it hadn’t been for us being friends for over 10 years I would have missed the slight concern in her tone.
“I’m fine, why? Did you hear something?” I questioned now very intrigued and curious.
“Wellll,” She drew out. I could just tell her head was drifting away from the phone.
“Sid,” I prodded, you could faintly hear the warning in my voice though.
Well, there’s this rumor.” She hesitated. Slowly drawing out her question.
“Okay,” I hinted at her to continue.
“And it’s about you.” She slowly and torturously drew out.
“Well, I think that part was obvious,” A slight annoyance coated my voice.
“Okay, okay, so there’s this rumor, it’s about you. Of course you know that.” She sounded as if she was talking to herself more. “It started at school, of course, and it has to do with you, um.” She sounded really hesitant to tell me for the most part. But I had a strong feeling I already knew what she was getting at.
But that didn’t stop me from prodding further just to make sure.
“Me what?” This time you could tell I was annoyed and working my way to furious, but not at Sid, at the concept of how low people will and can go.
“You, well. Uh,” She was still very hesitant.
“Come on siddddd,” I whined coaxing her. “Just tell me, the faster the better.” I reassured.
“Well, okay. That you have a ‘somewhat’ older flame, and your pregnant with said older flame.” I could just feel my face go red with anger, and embarrassment. Along side Sid’s.
“WHAT. THE.-,” I couldn’t finish my yelling rant because soon after ‘The’ Sid cut me off.
“Amalia, amalia. Calm down,” She reassured.
“Calm. Down!?” I bit out through clenched teeth in a growing anger.
“Getting angry won’t help the situation, so just calm down. Remember breathe one breathe two, in out in out. Sid reminded. As bad as I hated to admit it, she was right. Getting angry won’t help. The schools rumors always got out of hand but this is insane!.
“Okay, I see your point.” I puffed out a breath slumping my shoulders. “But how do we get through to the ‘idiots’ that all that is a stupid freaking lie!” I could feel my blood start boiling again, and my voice raising, until I heard the comforting reminding words of my long time friend on the other end of the phone.
“Amalia,” She warned.
“Okay. So like I said, how are we going to do it?” I pouted. I could tell Sid, heard the pout in my voice because she started giggling a little.
“Don’t worry amalia! We’ll figure something out. I promise.” I could tell she was smiling on the other end, her words were enough to tell me she would think up something. She never let me down. At that thought I started smiling.
Bidding Sid, a goodbye and that I’ll talk to her tomorrow I got off the phone.
Sighing I wondered what would be in store for me soon.
I drug my almost lifeless body up the stairs. It was around 5-6 PM in the evening and my aunt took all four including my brother out. I told them I’d rather just stay home, they understood and said they’d be home in about 3-4 hours tops. That was about 2 something hours ago. So I figured I’d just head to bed now, I was already depressed enough after hearing the news. Besides they wouldn’t be home till around 7, it wouldn’t be odd to come home and find me asleep I guess. Since tomorrow’s Monday anyway. Oh who cares I’m going to bed. Plopping on my bed, I drifted into a slumberous sleep. The dream I had could be considered a nightmare though, seeing as it consisted of me going to school, big swollen belly and people laughing at me pointing at my stomach like hyenas. I can’t believe that the rumor was even realistic in my dream! Yep I’m going crazy, might as well admit it now, when I’m doing the cha cha in nothing but bra and underwear it’ll be too late.
Short, but with chapter 3 being up soon, should make up for it yes?.:) Chap 3 should be up in 2-3 days tops. Depends I guess.
