The Twists of Fate: Chapter One: Part 6
“Karen, are you alright?”
“Huh?” I looked up and realized that I had bumped into Pete, and he now had a firm grasp on my shoulders. My face turned red as I looked up at him. “What just happened?” I asked.
“You ran into me. You really should be more careful. What are you doing anyways?”
I was still lost in my thought and didn’t even hear a word that he said. “What?”
“I said, what are you doing?” He looked at me with concern in his eyes. “Are you sure you’re alright?”
“Yeah, I’m fine.” I said as I looked up again.
“Sure?” He asked again?
“Yeah, I was just going to the principle’s office.” I said as he finally let go of my shoulders.
“Why?” he asked, now even more confused.
“My incredibly insane teacher sent me there.” I said with a smile.
“Oh, hey, wait for me at lunch alright?” Pete asked as he started to head towards his class.
“Um, sure, I guess.” I said, caught a little off guard.
“Alright, I’ll see ya then!” he sad as he turned around and walked towards his class.
“Man, this has been a really weird morning.” I said as I opened the door to the principle’s office. I passed Drew, who was sitting in a chair, starring at the ceiling.
“Hey, Drew!” I said as I passed him. He waved his hand in reply, as I stepped into the room. “Hey Mrs. Billblock.” I said as I took a seat in the nice comfy chair that sat behind her desk. She was rearranging some books on the mantle; at least, that’s what it looked like she was doing.
“Back again, Miss Kaoru? It’s only been two days. What did you do this time?”
“Absolutely nothing.” I said as I leaned back in the chair and looked at her almost upside down.
“Well, I’m sure you did something to piss him off.”
“All I did was write a note to Sarah…”
“That’s nothing bad. What did you do before that?” I relayed the events of the morning, excluding my dream. “So, you met Pete, did you?”
“Yeah, he seems like a really nice person.” I said blushing slightly. She turned around violently, and slammed her hands on her desk. I almost fell over in the chair as she said, “You must stay away from him!” I righted myself and looked at her. Her eyes had gone beady and she looked incredibly serious.
“But…why?” I asked.
“Stay away from him!”
“But..I don’t..Mrs. B..”
“Oh, what was I just saying right now,” Mrs. B said as she seemed to smack back to attention, and went back to arranging her mantle. “You may go back to your class now, Karen.”
“But..” I said puzzled. “You just.”
“You are dismissed.”
“Yes, ma’am.” I said as I walked slowly back to the class. What had gotten into her? I knew her very well, she was practically a second mother to me. I’ve never seen her act like that before. It was almost as if she was afraid, but of what? I headed back into the class, quietly, and tried to avoid the gaze of the boy.
(Only one more part left!! Yay! We're almost done with Chapter One!!)
