Ethan and I had to speak; I caught up with him before chemistry he was talking to Will and my brother. The two quickly walked off seeing me storming towards them. Ethan looked scared. Like a cornered deer.

"Hey, babe" I said in a sickly sweet voice, "we need to talk."

He avoided my gaze, "About?"

Seeing an arguement brewing my brother and Will quickly excused themselves. Matt reminding me that we had dinner with Dad tonight. As soon as they left however i turned on my boyfriend. "What happened Saturday night" I stated my eyes narrowed to slits.

"What happened Saturday night?" he asked dumbly.

"What happened Saturday night?" I repeated unbelieving. "Ethan, why don't you want to kiss me? Does this have to do with Jessica?"

He met my gaze before his eyes swiftly turned cold, "everything is about Jessica with you Rox"

"W-what?" I scoffed.

"You haven't lain off her ever since she came back." He scowled "Why can't you accept she's changed?"

"Changed?" I looked at him incredulously, "T-that" I couldn't even think of a word to describe Jessica "will never change"

"Maybe you're the one who'll never change" he said coolly checking his watch, "I have to go I'm late for chemistry." And with that he began to walk away from me.

I stared at his back in shock, "Ethan, I'm not done talking to you."

"I'm done talking with you" he shouted over his shoulder.

"What's wrong with you?" I asked myself softly sliding to the floor "your nothing like the guy I fell in love with." I buried my head within the folds of my arms.

It was a few weeks after that before Ethan and I even exchange glances. It was Thursday; we had yet to see each other all day which was weird because we had three classes together before lunch. He had been avoiding sitting next to me the past three weeks and I was a little pissed. As I walked into the cafeteria I realized he had reverted to sitting with the stupid athletes and cheerleaders. Jessica touched his arm and they laughed. Eternity came and pulled me to our table before I could make a scene.

"Roxie-" She started.

"What kind of message is he trying to give me by doing this?" I asked pissed. Eternity bit her bottom lip nervously. "What do you know? I demanded.

"I-I might have overheard Ethan asking Jessica to study with him tonight"

I stared at her numbly before asking "Are you kidding me?"

"Roxie, maybe they're just going to study-" Eternity started but I knew even she didn't believe that.

"You know what" I smirked glancing over by Kama Qi table "Let's spice things up"

Suddenly the Kama Qi table erupted in chaos as Cali smashed a slice of pie in Bliss' face. Nicholai bit back a snicker as the whole table burst out laughing. Bliss slowly removed the pie from her face, and shot venomous daggers at the small girl.

She then picked up some mashed potatoes, and threw them at Cali who dodged and hit Jessica on the table behind them. Cackling madly Cali threw some back at Bliss, who dodged, so it hit Kyle on the table behind them. Kyle rose with the speed of light and threw some at Matt, making him spill all of his juice on Ethan. Ethan shot deadly glares at the blonde and threw a piece of bread at Will, who responded immediately.

The food fight was on and none of the teachers stopped it, Mr. Campbell got hit by some pizza, and joined the fight throwing his chili on the Math teacher, Mrs. Gordon. And the staff area exploded in spaghetti and other foods.

The Zeta Alumni table was somehow untouched until some sushi hit Aaron in the forehead. He slowly rose looking dangerous.

"I bet that was one of his relatives" I whispered to Eternity who laughed.

I took up a dish of apple sauce and threw it at Jessica, who screamed and responded by throwing cold slaw at Eternity. That pissed me off and I tackled her to the ground squashing a piece of stale bread I found on the ground into her face.

This probably started an all out war as cheerleaders ran to defend Jessica. A bunch of well, regular girls ran foreword to help me. And in the middle of the girl on girl chaos Jessica and I rolled in food trying to kill the other.

"What the hell are you kids doing?" Dean Kennedy screamed.

Silence flooded the cafeteria; a pair of strong arms hauled me off Jessica. I tried looking at the person who turned out to be Callum. I couldn't focus on that because the Dean was still screaming at us.

"-I EXPECTED BETTER FROM YOU COLLEGE STUDENTS" She screamed angrily. "WHO STARTED THIS?" Her eyes scanned the crowd till they landed on the blonde girl I knew as Cali. "Mrs. Montello, this has your name all over it" She seethed.

Really I wondered if that anything to with the fact Cali was the only clean female in the room. Rolling my eyes I watch as Cali was carted off. Not before Dean Kennedy told us to go our respect gym, shower, and go to the assembly hall. EVERYONE. Middle School, High School and College.

After the Dean left we looked at each other sheepishly before returning to respective cliques. I started to laugh at the fan girls, who were drooling over a shirtless Ethan. I had 'accidentally' hit him with some water, so he had to take off his shirt in addition to being wet. He was giving me dirty glares, and I stuck my tongue out at him. I walked over to pick out some salad from Callum's hair, just to annoy Ethan.

"Why do you have this untamable mane in the first place?" I asked after a while.

Callum turned and looked at me. "Why not? Don't you like it?"

I snickered. "I actually do. It suits you." He smiled in satisfaction.

"It's been three weeks since I last saw you, do you know that?" Callum asked, and I stopped.

"You are counting?" I asked, and he shrugged.

"I count down to good things."

I rolled my eyes. "That's technically flirting, you know."

"Uh-uh" Callum said seriously.

"It's the truth." I smiled a little as I let my hands run through his untameable hair. When I realized what I was doing, I quickly stopped.

Callum noticed that and smirked. "You liked doing that, didn't you?" He asked, and I blushed.

"No." My tone must have given me away, and he turned to look at me.

"Hang out with me Tonight. Just as friends what ever. Please?"



So this is short, and I'll explain why I want to get your response? Are you going to hang out with Callum tonight? Please Comment! Please Vote! Please Like :)
