“So, are you skipping today Katie?” Courtney asked the petite brunette walking beside her through the main entrance of Westmore Lake High School.
“Hell yeah, I am,” Courtney replied, and adjusted the straps on her overbearing backpack. “Nothing is going to stop me from seeing Fifty Minutes to Venus today!”
“Oh my God, that Jared Feto is such a total hottie! I would have all his babies!” Courtney gushed.
“I’m bringing a few things along to try and get them to sign. After first period Mark is supposed to pick me up in the parking lot. I can’t friggin’ wait!”
Courtney lowered her eyes for a moment and then looked over at Katie warily. She knew her and Mark had been having some trouble lately.
“So, um…how are things with Mark, anyway?”
Katie sighed before replying, “I don’t know. He’s always pissed off about something. I’m just glad he agreed to pick me up from school today so I could sneak outta here. If my parents ever found out I was skipping school they would go crazy!”
Both girls rounded the corner and into a large classroom filled with students just as the late bell rang. Mrs. Grandela, the English teacher, watched them move to their seats before she rose to address the class.
