This story is based on something that really happened to me. In this story Jeanette is asked to tutor one of the football players. He asks you out on a date, but Simon doesn't like it. He too shy to tell Jeanette how he really feels. They get into an argument, but Simon finds out the jock is only going out with Jeanette to humiliate her. Can he save her in time and confess his true feelings.
Chapter One: Is She Really Going Out With Him?
“Hey, wait!” Jeanette Miller shouted, while running for the bus. But it was too late. The bus had already left, so she just started walking. The sidewalk was wet because of the rain the night before. She didn’t get half a block when a truck came by and splashed her from head to toe. She screamed out in frustration, feeling as if this was going to be a rotten day. She finally made it to school, although she was ten minutes late. She walked into homeroom feeling pretty embarrassed.
“You’re late,” Miss Crawley said. “School starts promptly at 8am.”
“Sorry,” she said and took her regular seat next to her two sisters.
She noticed two of the cheerleaders laughing and snickering, but was sure they were laughing at her. They abruptly stopped when Brittany turned and gave them a dirty look.
Soon the bell rang and everyone got up. “Jeanette, what happened to you?” Brittany asked as they were walking to their first class.
“I realized I forgot my science book and went back for it, but by the time I got back the bus had pulled away. I tried to catch it, but it was too late.
“I know that,” Brittany said. “I meant your clothes.”
“Oh, I got splashed by the truck,” she said with a groan as they walked down the hall together.
“Don’t worry,” Eleanor said. “You don’t look that bad.”
“It doesn’t make any less humiliating.”
Jeanette went off to her first class. Science, her favorite subject. It was one of the few classes she didn’t have with her sisters, but Simon, her best friend for the last eight years was in the class with her.
“Hi, Simon,” she said. “What happened?”
“Oh, nothing,” Jeanette said, not really wanting to tell him. “I just forgot my science book, and by the time I got back to the bus stop, it was pulling away. Then I get splashed by a truck.”
“So sorry,” Simon said. “I hate it when that happens.”
If there was anyone in the world that would understand her it was Simon. They were both branded as nerds years ago, but it never seemed to bother Jeanette. That was until they all entered high school.
Soon their teacher entered the room and the class settled down.
