Different I knew that I was different when I saw him.
I never really went out with anyone, just a few girls but nothing serious. But when I saw him I thought the sun blinded me. He walked into the class like a god, blond hair and light skin, untouched my the California sun, deep blue eyes, like the ocean, a perfect smile with white teeth, and I saw a bit of muscle hidden under his shorts and shirt sleeves. I know that this guy was my perfect opposite with myself having black hair, pale skin, nice teeth, hazel eyes, and a skinny body. But still he was beautiful and I knew he would be trouble for me. His name was Jay Lars and he just moved from Idaho because his father got transferred here. I saw that a lot of people liked him because he was handsome and nice, a lot of girls approached him as well at lunch. I hung out with my friends a Gothic girl named Luna who was straight, Mary and Dex who was bi, Ben who was gay and myself. We were the weird group because even through we liked different sexes or the same sex we were still together. We always sat under a big tree outside. When it was really hot or warm out we would sit there or the roof top if it was taken by someone else. Not a lot of people approached us because we were different and all but we really didn't care. After lunch we all split ways and went to different classes. I found out that Jay was in almost all my classes and my teacher Mrs. McDee said, "Ethan, since Jay is new and you both seem to have most classes together, could you show him around?" I really didn't want to but if I didn't I know my mom would here of this because she's good friends of
sorry. but then again I could be wrong. After class we both walked to history together." "Oh well I live with my mom and dad. my dad died. him with a group of people wanting to know him and me by myself with a bunch of loners in a corner. because he doesn't know me at all yet. The inside smelled like chocolate and the seats were made of tan leather. so I said. "So you cook?" he asked "What kind?" "I can cook anything because I live with my mom. what events that we have." as I slide into the seat. The next day. yet that's it. . and I didn't want to wait around for the bus because it was so slow. when I was waiting at the bus stop because I didn't get my license yet. sure Mrs. It was Jay. or just sleep in." "Nah it's okay. "Um.the McDee family. read in the library or at home. where the gym and changing room is. "Okay. want a ride?" I really liked the car and riding with him would be awesome. . So we both said by and went home. The bell rang and we went our separate ways because it was the last class of the day. "Yes?" while waling to the front. it seemed like Jay was interested in me." We both reached class and sat in different seats. I live in this direction. cook. Thanks. While we were walking he asked." said Jay while giving me a curious look. a sleek black car pulled up in front of me. Tomorrow he'll forget about me because all the students will tell him about me and my weird group. it seemed like he was following me so I called out. I made pho and dumplings. McDee. "Hey Ethan. classes that he might have in the future. I walked home and found out that Jay walked home too. everything looked so
." I found out that we were neighbors too." "Oh god. After thinking about those things I quickly changed and got to work with dinner before my mom came home." "Wonderful! Then Jay!" Jay walked into class and heard Mrs. "So what do you do on your days off?" "Usually I hang out with my group. I thought today was a strange day. After eating I went to my room to study because I had a big test tomorrow. I told him the names of the places that we past. "Why are you following me?" "I'm not following you. I'm so sorry!" "I said it's fine." "Oh then we can walk together. . the bathrooms and the drinking fountains. etc." I answered. Where his locker is. what kind of sports they're. "This is Ethan and he'll show you around since you're both in the same classes." "Okay. McDee call and said.
"Yeah. I turned away quickly. sure. Jay and I were paired up. but first we stopped by the cafe to get breakfast and to out lockers. what more is that he wasn't buff or anything just lean with muscles. Then we headed to the gym lockers. some of them started talking to Jay about trying out for football. I didn't notice that Jay was watching me change cause I was too busy getting ready. Jay shifted gears and we were on our way to school. I watched as Jay stripped off his blue t-shirt. I ignored all of them and just stared at a wall. which were right next to each other. Anyway we finished changing and just waited around for the other guys to get done and head to the gym. It was hard for me cause I didn't have control of the ball at all on the other hand Jay had it easy. After gym we both went to different classes so we split ways. I introduced my friends to Jay and him to them." The rest of the day went by fast. etc. Jay parked in the student parking lot and I waited for him as he got his stuff out of his car.
. before Jay caught me staring. We finally went inside the gym and started stretching. "You wanna meet up together for lunch?" I thought about it for a minute then answered. and got changed. We all sat in silence eating and looking around us. Jay didn't seem to care but listened to them anyway. and got dressed. Jay and I met up by the big tree outside where I usually sit with my group. basketball. he had muscles in all the right places. then we went to work on volleyball. Then we walked together to Physical Education. We got to our gym lockers.advance. They were really surprised to see someone. etc. We then went to get lunch and sat underneath. "Where did you get this car?" "I've had it for a while since we moved here." he answered. It was sunny but cloudy. As we were going Jay asked. that was the center of attention to the whole school. would sit with them because they were all weird. soccer. On the way I asked. the clouds covered the sun like a blanket and it was really warm but the light wind breeze kept us cool. Ours were next to each other. baseball. I also told Jay about which sex they liked but it seemed like he took it well so I didn't say anything else.
Jay was still beside me and we walked the History together." Jay said while getting his notebook and pencil out. "That it? Cause they look pissed off." I said and dropped the topic and looked outside the window." Jay answered. The angry girls were watching me with utter disgust. "Sure. Even thorough History is a boring class why does she have to be so cheery? I thought. Telleworth went on and on about the American Revolution. she even showed us a video. "I rejected them all. I liked this spot it has a nice view of the growing trees and flowers and the sunlight was just right so it didn't blind me and when I looked outside I often find myself dreaming about something or in a daze. it's like I hear of see whatever is going on and memorize it so I have photographic memory of something of the sort. "What happened?" I said as I was watching at the disappointed and angry girls sat back into their seat. So we all sat in silence as Mrs. and some people were taking notes throughout the lecture because Mrs. trying to talk to him and offering a seat next to them and to ask him out since he was single. I heard a noise beside me and turned to see that Jay decided to sit next to me.A few girls and boys would occasionally come up to Jay. pushing and shoving one another. saying that he should sit with them or hang out with them after school or try to ask him out but he would turn them down saying he was already eating and didn't want to get up or that he was busy after school helping unpack his things from moving. When the lunch bell rang we threw away our trash and my friends disappeared into the crowd of people who were trying to get to class or catch their friend in the hallway to chat. I really didn't care about the quiz cause I already get good grades without trying. "They just wanna have a good time and I'm just busy. Telleworth usually has a pop quiz about her lectures the following week. in our group. Whatever. like they couldn't believe that Jay would sit next to a weirdo and loser like me. it's the only thing interesting about me. "Ok class today we're having a review on the American Revolution!" said the cheery History teacher Mrs. Telleworth.
. At the door a bunch of girls suddenly came up to Jay." I injected. I got through the crowd of pushing girls and went to the far right corner of the room and sat down.
what time do you wanna meet at?" I asked. "Anytime works for me. sure. ok then how about ice cream?" "Ha!" "What?!" "I didn't peg you for someone who eats ice cream as food. Monday." said Jay. I already know it and stuff. "Hey Ethan." Jay said. so what time should we meet?" Jay asked. "Yeah." "Shut up! I just love the stuff!" "Ok. what? You wanna start tutoring now?" I asked. "Wait. what kind?" "Um. . I stopped and looked at him in the eyes and said." "That doesn't give much to pick from ya know?" "Um . "Ok. . can you treat me to food then?" embarrassed." I said. Wednesday. anything is fine as long as it's good. "You. "So this tutor thing." he said as I was walking getting out of the car. what about you?" "I'm good with anytime too. . I ate breakfast and after I gathered my school supplies and went outside. I saw that Jay was already outside in his car waiting for me. I was going to tutor Jay!!! My mom woke me up the next morning and I told her that I was going to start tutoring my friend so I wouldn't be around to cook dinner when I get home sometimes. "I'll see you later then. . I told her that I was fine." I answered. "Great. "Um . so what do you say?" "Um. I looked shocked." Who knows. want me. I guess. She said it was fine and asked how I was doing these days cause she's been busy with work. cause well I'm trying out for football. . "Oh no! You don't have to pay me! I can do it for free and plus I'm your friend!" "Oh? well I can't just let my friend just tutor me for free now can I?" "Um . We packed up and started walking to Math. His car door was opened and he said.The bell rang and everyone packed up their things and headed to their last class of the day. "Yep. "Really? Then could you teach me. ok. "Yeah we can schedule a daily meeting at my house. you didn't take notes. and Friday. "Food?" Jay thought for a minute. baseball. so ice cream it is for tutoring. maybe we'll get together?
." So I did and then we went to school. . basketball. how much do you want me to pay you?" Jay asked. to tutor you?" "Yeah." Jay smiled. Maybe on the weekends if we have time." With that it was settled. well tutor me?" asked Jay. "Get in. and maybe soccer and I need good grades to be in it. .
