Darryl stood there, sad and ready to give up. He felt down and wanted to give up after hearing Joseph's story. He felt like not doing it, if Joseph can't hold the responsibility how can he? Luke notices Darryl's emotions through his hands forming a fist and his gritting teeth. He walks over and punches him right in the stomach. Everyone gasps and hurried to Darryl and Luke.


"really? I can't believe you'd give up that easy" Luke said as Darryl coughs


"what the hell, Luke?" Joseph asks for an explanation. He was not pleased with Luke's action. Luke didn't answer. He was waiting for Darryl's poor response.


"I'd rather give up than have my heart broken" Darryl said as he stood up. Irritated, Luke punches him again, this time at the face.


"so you'd rather give up on the mission you've placed on yourself than actually trying to suceed? Is that it? If so, then I have never met such a weak person like you" Luke insulted. Darryl wasn't clearly happy with this, and so he sucker punches Luke at the face. Darryl grabs hold of him and runs up to the door, opening it, leading them outside. Darryl throws him at the asphalt and Luke smirks. Joseph was about to help when he suddenly smiles as he sees a person that's better at stopping him.


"that all you got?" he asks in a cocky tone, as if he's experienced worse. Darryl hurried to him and jumped. Luke then had flashes of the incident and quickly dodged.


"Darryl stop!" Luke said, his voice suddenly changed. But Darryl wasn't going off half-assed, He charges forward for a punch which Luke dodges. 

"please, stop! I don't want another-" His words were cut short by Darryl's relentless punching. Luke continues to dodge, not wanting to hurt him anymore. He closes his eyes as he tries to block Darryl's punches by forming a cross with his arms.Suddenly, Darryl's punching stopped. Luke opens his eyes and saw Erick stopping Darryl.

"Mr. Fong, please, if you want to settle thing, settle it in words." he said as Darryl struggle to fight Erick's insane grip. Luke sighs as Erick stops the fight. Everyone else sighed too.

a little later, Luke and Darryl had bandages on their faces. Luke, again, had an ice bag on his face. Everyone was silent as Erick stands there, eyes closed and crossed arms. They were about to get scolded.


"I'm disappointed in you two!" he said and everyone screamed as they thought Erick was going to say something worse.

"we're sorry sir" Darryl said

"don't apologize, it was me who started it anyway" Luke said, glaring at Erick slightly. Erick glared back.


"Why did you do that?" Erick asks, expecting a good reason for such a harsh action.


"I did it because I hate seeing people give up." Luke said. "People who gives up too easily are weak and they can't achieve what their goals are" he continued as he glared at Darryl. Erick looks at Darryl. Darryl sighs, knowing why Erick looked at him.


"Joseph told me what Cassandra is like and I felt like I've got no way of winning her over. If he can't do it, how can I?" he said with a frown. 


"YOU JUST HAVE TO TRY IT!!" Luke said, irritated at Darryl. Joseph, Steve, Victor, and Jackson all went in and grabbed hold of Luke. They knew that it was going to take all of them to stop Luke since his rage cannot be stopped.


"While I don't agree with his methods, Luke is right. If you give up too easily then you'll never achieve or gain that which you want" Erick said. He puts his hand on Darryl's shoulder and smiles. "It doesn't hurt to try, you're a teenager! Love is normal for you and it's normal for teenagers to break up as well. You're still young, and you can do whatever you want! I've agreed to help you all out on your personal missions so that you'll be able to achieve your goals, and this is your mission, right?" he asks. Darryl hesitats to answer. "Well?"


"yes sir" Darryl answers


"Then don't give up! You've got all the boys and Audrey to help you out. I'm here as well" Erick said. Darryl smiles as his confidence boosts up again. He looks over to his classmates. The 10 boys smiled at him as they grouped up. Audrey gives a friendly wave and Darryl looks to Luke and he sighs.


"glad to see you're back!" he said, rolling his eyes.


"thanks guys!" Darryl said.


The next day was the day they put their plan into motion. They had a P.E. class as their last period and coincidentaly, or maybe not ;), badminton was their activity. Erick knew that Cassandra was looking for a worthy rival and he also knew that Darryl had been practicing with Steve so that he can learn. He did the best thing for Darryl and grouped them into boy and girls. The first match was Luke versus Audrey.


The boys were cheering for Luke to kick her ass while the girls are cheering for Audrey to kill him. They both turned around and gave thumbs up then turns to each other and glared. Erick gave a coin toss. Luke was heads while Audrey was tails. It was tails and Audrey was first to serve. 


"hope you're ready to lose!" Audrey said, giggling in the process.


"as if I'll- woah!" Luke said as he quickly stroked. Audrey quickly returned and Luke wasn't fast enough to attempt a return. Audrey won a point. The game had Audrey favored and she won the game, happily jumping and smiling as Luke had the face of defeat all over his body.


"that's embarassing!" Victor said, covering his mouth.


"YOU DON"T SAY!" Vincent said, angryily.


"Next!" Erick yelled and Victor walked over to the court. Her opponent was a blue haired girl, taller than him. She had green eyes which is the only thing that's saying she's not Victor's sister. She also has a determined face which flinched Victor a little. Erick tossed the coin again and Victor was first to serve.


"get ready Freya, cuz I'm about to kick your-" Victor said, but as the match went on, Freya won.


"that's embarassing!" Vincent said, returning the insult to Victor


"SHUT UP!!" Victor said pouting and crossing his arms.

"Next!" Erick yelled and Joseph stepped in. He was about to face Emerald. "Can the boys keep up?" Erick asks and Joseph smirks. The match went to Joseph's favor as he won. All the boys cheered for Joseph while the girls comforted with Emerald, saying that it was ok.

The next matches went as follows:

Ben vs Katejina= Ben

Chris vs Christina= Christina

Jackson vs Diana= Diana

Steve vs Isabella= Steve 

Richard vs Lydia= Richard

Keith vs Catherine= Draw


Finally, the final match. Cassandra stepped in and Darryl hesitates and was sweating but Luke, Joseph, and Audrey pushed him forward. Due to Darryl's hesitation, Cassandra thought that he was going to be easy. She looked bored and Darryl panicked. She was going to take him on easy and he doesn't want that. He gulps and wipes the sweat off his forehead and stood straight.


"Cassandra!" he called, getting Cassandra's attention. "I want you to fight me at your fullest! I want to beat you!" he continued. Cassandra's eyes switched from normal, to that of a target. Darryl flinched as he saw this. Erick flips the coin. Darryl was heads and Cassandra was tails.The coin drops and Darryl was the one who's going to serve.


"Start!" Erick shouts


Cassandra was shocked at how fast the shuttle was. She quickly stroke but Darryl quickly returned. Getting her footing, Cassandra was much better when she returned the shuttle. They kept on for about two minutes but Darryl knew he can't keep up. He was only pushing himself. As he returned, Cassandra quickly stroked and she soon got a point. Erick whistles as Cassandra got a point. Darryl was shocked, he was getting tired but Cassandra looked like she was only warming up. Erick then whistles for the match to continue


Darryl serves again and this time it was easier for Cassandra as she returns and Darryl was too tired to return. The match ended in Cassandra's favor. Darryl was was about to fall if Luke had not been there to help him stay standing. 


"easy, easy, you're pretty exhausted. Audrey, get this guy some water!" he shouts as he places his arm over his shoulders. Darryl looks at him and for the first time, he saw Luke smile. It was weird, one moment he was beating him and then he was smiling. Darryl fell asleep as the exhuastion took the best of him.






"oh shit he's about to wake up!"


A little later and Darryl woke up. It was about 4:00 when he woke up none of the boys seemed to be present. He can hear Audrey's voice as she runs to them which gave him some relief as he sat up. He shakes himself up as he tries to remember why he's on the ground. Audrey approaches him with a bottle of water and a sigh, probably relieved that he's awake.


"what happened again?" he asks as he wipes his eyes


"you lost against Cassandra" Audrey answers, sadly. Darryl had not seen this face before, Audrey always had a smile on her face.


"why are you sad?" he asks as Audrey gave him the bottle of water she was holding. 


"well, we lost! Our plan didn't work and I'm sure you've lost 15% percent of winning her over" she said and Darryl panicked silently. His hairs were raising up, frightened by what Audrey said. 


"oh, well! Better luck next time I guess!" she said, bringing up that smile Darryl was used to. Audrey helps Darryl up, pulling him up. 


"where are the others?" he asks, looking around and sees that none of the boys are actually present. It was weird, the boys are gone and Audrey is the only one present in the entire court. 


"they've already went home! Luke's waiting for you at the convenience store though" Audrey said. Darryl sighs and walks away, Audrey following him.


As they exit the gate, Darryl stopped at the sight of Cassandra and Emerald standing outside the gate. They were talking and Cassandra made eye contact with him. She ignores him and continued to talk. Audrey walked past by him, nudging his body as her's passed. The two looked impatient as Audrey walks to them, they said a few things before walking away. Audrey winks before leaving. Darryl took his time before touching his body. He found a note colored pink. He walks as he reads it. It read:


"Hi Darryl. I had a great match today and it was all thanks to you. I'll admit, I was exhausted as well after that andI've only felt that when I fight at tournaments. Thanks for playing with me and I hope that I get to fight you again.

PS If Audrey lied to you about anything, I'm very sorry :( she can be a liar too.


Darryl smiles and blushes a little bit. He opens up the door to the convenience store and he immediately hears clapping. It was Luke and Joseph. They were waiting for him to congratulate him. Darryl smiles and ran up to them. He notices that Luke was still smiling. 


"why are you guys still here?" he asks


"congrats man!" Luke said as he places his hand over his shouler.


"first phase, complete!" Joseph joked, they shared a small laugh. 


"Congrats on increasing your chances, Darryl" a familiar voice said. Darryl turns and sees Erick, standing at the door.


"thanks, sir!" he said and Erick closes his eyes and nodded, signifying that he's glad to help.


"Now, let's go! I'll treat you three for doing a good job!" Erick said. The three looked at each other and nodded. They walked outside the store and Erick treated them at a restaurant. After that, they went home. Darryl wore a smile as well as Luke. He didn't need to question because he knew why he was smiling. Luke was proud of Darryl, he got closer to his mission.

Yaay more xD I loved when Luke punched Darrly, it was surprising yet funny. I guess they have a little conflict going on there haha
Their fight was great, well explained. Little fights like these always make things better, honestly. Every great story has to have its conflicts.
Great chapter, I'm starting to like Luka and Darrly even more :)
I'm looking forward to more and more of Audrey who is still my fave xD

Stop starting sentences with lowercase letters.I also don't like how some of the sentences are structured/ and some word choice but that's just my silly personal opinion. You also seem to be trying to force too much character development in. You draw out some of the sentences by adding so much detail and explaining why some things happen. I understand it as I tend to do it also but I try to go back and rework them to make them more natural because no one goes into that much detail when they talk. The part I highlighted as an example of that and maybe some proofreading too. I do like the characters you do that well and the story is rather interesting i'll give you that.

Hey! Thanks for the advice again, I'll rework that later.

Sun, November 12th, 2017 3:19pm


I forgot to mention this but there is a reason as to why there are lowercase sentences. I wanted to make the teacher stand out a little from the rest, so that's why his sentences starts with uppercase while the students and everybody else, are lowercase.

This was a very fun chapter, I really liked it. My favorite is still Luke. I like how he is pushing him to not give up, he might be doing it in a violent way but that's just the way he is.

The matches were great and I loved the little taunts people were giving eachother when they lost. It made me laugh. So he didn't really have to beat her, just had to give her a real challenge. She liked how tough of an opponent he was. Can't wait to see what happens next.

I'm glad you liked it and I'm glad you like Luke. Yeah, he doesn't want to see anyone give up so he encourages them to not to even if he had to take "extreme measurements' haha.

I'm glad you liked the matches, I really didn't want to make it long since it strays from the plot of this chapter but I'm still glad you enjoyed it. Yeah, their plan was to beat her but he didn't since Darryl was nervous haha.

Erick's teaching method begins to be more and more interesting. In real life, I don't know how accepted it would be. I don't think teachers should try to affect the students' love life. Or kill other students. But that is just my boring perspective :-)

And I cannot blame Darryll for backing/giving up. Relationships are serious and red flags are important. Ok, now I'm just boring

Fri, December 29th, 2017 5:24pm


Yeah his methods won't work in real life. And yeah, you're right, normal teachers shouldn't meddle in these kinds of things but Erick is not normal and he's definitely more than a teacher lol. And that's fine if you're boring, heck I'm boring in real life

Yeah, can't blame the guy if he gives up but thankfully he soon found confidence and was able to grab Cassandra's attention

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT! DARYL KILL HIM! BLOOD IS AMAZING! (omg there's a fight between two guys right behind me rn)

Oh nevermind the fight ended. Cri.

Okay so according to Audrey person thing she was being a muffinsack to Joseph but now she claims that Audrey lied? IM CONFUZZELED >~<

Their plan is to have Daryl beat Cassandra in badminton? He could have just gotten her flowers or offered sex?

Well that ended well... maybe... okay well i'm still wondering who lied about it? Audrey or Cassandra?

Imma read moreeeeeee

Fri, February 2nd, 2018 3:48pm


What the hell?! Lol

Well, of course it had to end, because Erick.

Uh no, that lying thing was because Audrey lied that everyone went home.

They might be too young for that shit and it's because Darryl's a shy fuck

Fri, February 2nd, 2018 4:24pm


Whoooo, they managed to get a little interest from Cassandra. I'd say it's going in the right direction. Wonder what their next objective will be, and I wonder how this will end for these two. Looks good right now, anyway :) another great chapter :D
