The school bell rang at the end of the day, so Mark picked up his math book and headed out of class. He walked through the crowded halls to the English room where he always met his younger sister, Jessica. She was 16, beautiful, and in need of his protection; so he seldom let her out of his sight.
He made his way through the herd of noisy students. When he got to the English room, she wasn’t there. A familiar panic hit, and he knew what he had to do. He immediately pushed his way through the crowded hallway, ran out of the building, and started looking around the grounds.
A few people said good-bye to him as he passed, but he didn’t acknowledge them. He just continued on his quest, looking anxiously for her. He saw many students sitting around talking, unaware of the problem at hand. Many were getting in their cars to leave. A few were throwing a football on the grass.
Then he saw a group of students gawking at something and knew that’s what he was looking for. His heart rate jumped as he ran over and broke through the crowd to see that they were watching two students in the bushes in a passionate make-out session. He recognized the couple immediately. The boy was Kendall, the captain of the football team. The beautiful girl with the long brown curls and deep eyes was Jessica.
