Arthur didn’t even have a chance to say goodbye to Eva before she seemed to rush to class with Alyssa. It only caused the warmth that was already draining from him to drift away more. She didn’t even put in the effort to say ‘see you later’. Was he taking it to personal? Or perhaps being to serious? It was in his nature, and he couldn’t help it. Didn’t help that he also tended to lean more on the pessimistic side of things. He felt his phone vibrate and saw the message from Eva, his heart failing him even more. Was she going to break the news to him? That she appreciated his help, and all, but she was ready to be on her own again. Perhaps she would tell Arthur that she’d rather be miserable in her home with her mother than at Arthur’s house. Now that thought knocked Arthur into a depressed mood all the way into lunch. Even his favorite class, Guitar Lessons, didn’t seem to cheer him up at all. Where his fingers would usually take control and present a new acoustic version of some punk or metal song, his fingers simply ran across the strings, plucking pitifully. ”I’m a fool.” He mumbled under his breath. No one could fall in love with a monster like him.
On the other side of the spectrum, Terrance and Jacob both seemed to walk a bit better. Terrance had gotten a message from Helene. And although it sounded so vague, he was already jumping to conclusions. Since Terrance and Helene tended to text about one thing… that one thing came to his mind. A romp session on campus? During the day?? Man, Helene really knew what buttons to push on Terrance to set the gears in his mind in motion. Having sex in such a risky place, at suck a risky time, God! It really turned Terrance on. But he was met with the tiny dilemma of where to meet up. There were so many places, but what place would be the safest and most secluded? Initially Terrance thought of the band room, but he wouldn’t be surprised if some of the band nerds went there during lunch to practice. The library tended to be abandoned during lunch as well, but Terrance wanted to avoid that weird Isabelle girl. She treated the library like her own person shrine… or sanctuary really. Anyone who so much as coughed out of place in there, disturbing the peace of the air, had to deal with that crazy chick’s wrath. He thought of the gymnasium, but no doubt the basketball team may be practicing. That was when the lightbulb went on. The football field and bleachers were off limits during school hours. As they were considered to be “off campus”. No teachers, no students, no administration. Perfect. Meet me under the football bleachers, far side of the field. And for the rest of the day until lunch, Terrance walked with a skip to his step.
Jacob on the other hand, seemed significantly better having turned over his ruby gem back to its rightful owner. It weighed too heavily on his heart and in his pocket to keep it on him. By returning it to Alyssa, at least he was fooling himself long enough that she could changer her feelings. That she could come back to him eventually. Though in the deep recesses of Jacob’s mind he knew that wasn’t likely, this was the kind of hope Jacob needed to help him push to lunch time.
The day lulled on and the lunch bell rang, releasing everyone into the courtyard. The four Swedes met up in their usual spots, and Terrance had to do his best to repress his excitement. ”Shoot I forgot my lunch in my locker! I’ll be back.” Before getting any responses, Terrance snuck off in the direction of his locker, just to make a big loop around campus, and hiding out in the bleachers. He had to activate his inner spy instincts to sneak between pillars and hallways, making sure that no administrators or teachers noticed him sneaking off. It was exhilarating to Terrance. His heart was doing backflips at the prospect of hooking up with Helene, out in the open, on school property. Banging on school campus was an achievement he could brag about to other guys. Much like how one could brag about joining the mile-high club on an airline flight. But more than any of that, he was excited to encapsulate Helene in his arms again. To kiss that one spot that always seemed to make her squirm. She was really perfect for him. Terrance felt his heart racing and he had to slap himself, taking deep breaths. ”Nothing more than a fling, nothing more than a fling.” Terrance recited out loud to himself. Perhaps if he kept telling himself that, it would suddenly become fact.
Arthur couldn’t lift his head from the ground by the fountain. He was preparing himself for the worse when Eva arrived. The ground just seemed more fascinating than the impending doom he felt. Much like how the guns on the wall of his armory were more interesting than the lectures his father gave. Speaking of lectures, he could already hear the tiny voice of Terrance in the back of his head. I told you not to get attached! Now you are hurting, and it is your own damn fault! Arthur sighed, kicking the dirt at his feet. Alexander sat beside him, keeping a hawk eye out for any possible Gigi spottings. While Jacob was gleefully consuming his lunch. ”That is the first time you’re eating something since Saturday! I’m glad you are able to start stomaching food again.” Alexander kindly patted Jacob’s shoulder.
Isabelle’s minion, on one hand, had pounced on her own prey. When the bell rang, she quickly closed in on Eva. “Eva! You have to help me! You’re the only one who understands the contemporary involvement of classical music in new age literature. You have to help me with this report.” And before the girl could let Eva protest, she grabbed her wrist and pulled her away. “I know you should be practicing with Matthew right now. But I NEED you!” In the library, Isabelle sat on one of the nearby tables, holding up a book to her face, and tucking her pitch black hair behind her ear. There was a click of a door opening, and the two girls entered her domain. A malicious grin grew on Isabelle’s face, hearing them make their way to another table. The other girl was whispering, as if to imitate following library rules. “Wait here, I gotta find a few books.” And so the little minion did her duty, and scurried away, leaving Eva at a table, and Isabelle with her prey. ”I didn’t know the class slut would be gracing me with her presence today.” Isabelle snapped the book shut in front of her nose, placing it down on the table beside her.
Swiveling around on the table, legs crossed, Isabelle looked at Eva with sharp eyes, much like a snake. Isabelle radiated her own kind of beauty. One that was dark, ominous, and mysterious, almost similar wavelengths to that of Arthur. Isabelle stood up, and walked towards Eva, taking Eva’s chin in her hand. Isabelle’s dark, evil eyes reflected back against Eva’s bright, innocent eyes. ”Oh… I shouldn’t be so mean to you, Eva. Besides you are only a bystander in all of this.” Isabelle’s eyes seemed to soften, before letting go of her grip on Eva. ”It isn’t fair, such a beautiful face being pulled into something outside her control. If Arthur hasn’t told you about me then… Well, I’m so sorry.” She curled her black hair between her fingers, flashing a woeful look towards Eva.
”I’m afraid Arthur is just using you to get back at me. See, I’m Arthur’s girlfriend. Have been for almost 2 years now. But you know how private Arthur is about every aspect of his life. And I’m not really one for the attention either. He doesn’t want to flaunt around having a girlfriend. Not that I didn’t mind. Sure, in public we couldn’t show anything. But once doors closed.” Isabelle’s body seemed to quiver for a second, and she just purred under her breath, imagining Arthur’s arms wrapped around her own body.
”But to the chase, we got in a fight over the summer… and now it seems that he is using you as a little flashy trophy to try and get back at me. Tsk. Tsk. But I know Arthur better than anyone else.” Isabelle sighed, walking over towards a bookshelf, running her black painted fingernails some of the spines of the books. ”Him using you is so wrong… and I took it as my moral obligation to let you know- he is just using you, Eva. He’s told me he loves me, you know? Has he ever said that to you?” Isabelle’s malicious eyes glinted towards Eva, crossing her arms in front of her chest.
”I know you may not believe me. But think about it. Did you honestly think Arthur even remotely liked you? That he wasn’t using you for some purpose of his own. Who do you think is truly a better match for him? Someone just as mysterious? Just as quiet? Just as physically passionate as myself? Or some little girl, who tropes around with her skirt too high, ready to be taken advantage of by the closest guy. Think about it.” Isabelle threw her hair back over her shoulder, her sharp eyes watching Eva closely, to see her reactions to Isabelle’s spun web. Truly a trap of words for any innocent, unknowing insect.
