"Hey Randy, so .. yesterday I was in the city and .. " said Stephanie.
Suddenly Jessica interrupted her.
"Look who are coming our way."
Everbody turned their heads around. "Maureen, why are all of them watching us?" asked Lynsea.
She looked at Stephanie's group. They were still watching.
"I don't know. Keep on walking. Just ignore them." "They're looking pretty fine today," said Lou, laughing.
"Oh, shut up, Lou. They're looking like monsters as always." Stephanie gazed after them.
"Why can't you just be nice for one day?" Randy asked and walked away.
" ... Idiot." Stephanie rolled her eyes. Randy walked to his locker. Lynsea was standing there too, grabbing her books for the next hour.
"Hi beautiful," said Randy.
Lynsea turned around. She saw Randy looking at her, smiling.
"Wait, are you talking to me?" "Well, yeah. Ofcourse I'm talking to you." Randy smiled. "That dress looks good on you."
"Oh.. well, thank you, I guess." She blushed.
"Hehe, I've got some things to do. I'll see you next hour!" He waved and walked away.
Suddenly Maureen came running to Lynsea. "Red cheeks, starry eyed. What's going on?" Maureen gasped for breath.
"Randy said that I looked fine today." She blushed again.
"Oh wow, that's amazing! And he ain't lyin'! You're stunning as always. But, let's go to the classroom, we're getting late."
Maureen grabbed Lynsea's hand and dragged her to the classroom. The teacher was still away when the classroom was already filled, so the students could still talk. "O my god, Randy, what are you doing? Haven't you made your homework yet?" Lynsea made a nervous gesture.
"No, I hadn't much time. Yesterday I had soccer practice and .. well .."
"Here, take my homework. You can copy it. But be quick, Mrs. Davids could be in here any minute." Lynsea grabbed her notebook out of her bag and handed it over to Randy.
"Thanks, Lynsea. You're the best!" But while Randy was copying the homework, Mrs. Davids walked in.
"Good morning, class. Sorry I'm late. Stupid traffic jam." She looked into the classroom. "Alright, everyone's here .. except for Yin-Hao. Let's start the lessons." Mrs. Davids was just about to turn on her computer when she saw Randy copying his homework. "Randy.. how stupid do you think I am? I can see from a distance you're copying the homework." Mrs. Davids was furious. "And if I may ask, who's homework is it you're copying from?"
"It's from .. eh .. " Randy stammered. Lynsea sighed. "It's mine, Mrs. Davids." "Hahaha, I hope she gets detention." Stephanie laughed.
Maureen didn't say a word. "Stephanie, shut your mouth. And you two .. you two got yourself a detention. Is that clear?"
"Crystal clear," Randy whispered. After the lesson ended the bell rang. Everybody stood up and was ready to go the next lesson. "Hey, Lynsea. Wait for me!" Maureen ran after Lynsea. "Now that you have to go to detention we can't make it to the city."
"I know. I'm sorry." Lynsea stared at the lockers. "I'll make it up to you."
"Don't worry, you've got yourself a date with Randy!" Maureen laughed.
Lynsea smiled too and poked Maureen in the ribs. Time flew by and for the most students school was out.
"Are you really going to detention, Randy?" asked Stephanie.
"Yeah, it's my own fault. And besides, I can't leave Lynsea alone. She's in there because of me."
"Why do you even care when you can spend the whole midday with me." Stephanie grabbed his back and tried to hug him.
"Let me go, Steph. No means no. I've gotta go. I see you later, Lou." Randy pushed Stephanie away and walked to the detention room. "Good afternoon, class. You've got two hours to finish your homework. When you're ready, I'll check it and you can leave. Is that clear? Alright. Now, work." Mrs. Gilligan stood up and took place behind her desk. After two hours Randy and Lynsea were ready.
"Mrs. Gilligan, we've finished our homework. Can we go now?" asked Randy.
"Sure, let me check it and you two can go." She took the notebooks out of Randy's hands and checked it. "Seems fine. You two can go," she said and went back writing on her laptop. "It wasn't that bad, right?" asked Randy.
"No, it wasn't. Actually, it has an advantage. I don't have to make my homework for tomorrow now." She laughed.
"Hehe, that's right." Lynsea and Randy walked together to the canteen. There they saw Maureen and Lou waiting for them.
"You didn't wait for us all the time, did you?" Lynsea asked with startled eyes.
"Actually, we did. But we didn't expect it would take so long." Maureen sighed. Lou agreed.
"I'm so sorry. Detention takes usually one hour, but I think today wasn't Mrs. Gilligan's best day. So we had to be there two hours," said Randy.
"Sounds like you've got experience with her." Lynsea laughed. "Actually, I have." Randy smiled. He turned around and looked at Lynsea's face. "Look, it's getting pretty late. I'm sorry I put you in this bad situation. Let me walk you home."
"Eh.." Lynsea looked at Maureen. She knew Maureen would wanted to come over at her house. But Maureen nodded with a big smile on her face. "Sure, why not." Lynsea smiled and left with Randy at her side. "Looks like the two of us are left over," said Lou.
"Oh no, don't even think about it!" Maureen shouted.
"Come on, let me walk you home too. It's dangerous outside, you know?" Lou smiled.
The two talked and eventually Lou walked Maureen home. "Can I ask you one thing?" asked Randy.
"What's up with you and Stephanie? You two seem to fight and fight everyday. I hear alot of bad stuff about you from her, but I don't believe her. What's your side of the story?"
Lynsea blinked her eyes rapidly. She sighed.
"We used to be best friends when we were little. But one day there was a new girl in the class, Maureen. Nobody wanted to be friends with her, but I liked her. I wanted her and Stephanie to be friends too, but Stephanie wouldn't let me. She decided to ignore me and told the whole class that my father commited suicide. That wasn't true, he died in a car crash. I was devastated." Her voice trembled.
Randy bit on his lip. "I'm sorry to hear that your father died. I have heard that rumour from her, yes. As I said, I didn't believe her. And .. she also told me you were a big freak with voodoo and that stuff."
Lynsea sighed again.
"Let's be honest, you think I'm a freak too, don't you?"
The two arrived talking at Lynsea's house. Randy grabbed Lynsea's arms and looked into her eyes.
"Lynsea, I think you're beautiful. You're a sweet girl that knows what she wants. There's no way I could think you were a freak. And that's why I wanted to ask you something."
"Go ahead." She stared straight past him.
"Lynsea, would you want to go on a date with me next week? I really think you're a nice girl and I want to know you better, if that's alright with you."
Lynsea looked up. She cracked a smile. She didn't had to think twice. "Yeah, that's alright with me." She looked at his face and found his eyes.
O my gosh, he really asked me out on a date. Wow.. "So it's settled. A date with you next weekend. You know, this is such a relief. I thought you would say no. But nothing ventured, nothing gained." With these words Randy hugged her. "Well, I've gotta go. I hope your mom isn't mad. I see you tomorrow."
As he walked away Lynsea gazed after him.
He .. is .. such a cutie! But .. my mom .. how will she react? With shaky legs of happiness she went into her house, to the livingroom.
"Mam, I'm home." She saw her mother lying on the couch.
Oh, I'm glad she's sleeping. Now I can take time to think how I should bring this to her.
But suddenly her mother stood up from the couch. "Where the hell have you been, Lynsea?! You could have been dead. I was so worried," shouted her mother.
"Mam, please. Let me explain this. Please, calm down."
"Well, you have to come with a really good excuse, young lady." "I had to go to detention with this guy I was talking about yesterday. So, after detention he walked me home. And he asked me to go out with him next weekend. And I really, really, really want to go. Pleeeeaaaaseee?" She begged her mother.
"What's his name?"
"You really like him, do you?"
Lynsea blushed. "I guess so."
"That's so sweet, sweety."
"Can I go, mam? Please?" "Let me think, honey," her mother said.
There aren't a lot of boys who want to date her. This one must be special. I'll take the risk.
"Alright, sweety. You can go. BUT, I want to meet him first." "Sure, mam. Everything you want. Thank you so much. Give me a hug!" Lynsea said relieved. Her mother hugged her daughter. But her mother wasn't relieved at all.
It's good she's happy for awhile, cause I've got alot of things to say to her, and she won't be happy with it. She won't be happy at all.
