"I hate you!" I screamed, to none other than Damon Blake, the guy I've hated since the fourth grade.copyright protection18PENANAUHv5ftvmI5

He scoffed "I wouldn't want it any other way."copyright protection18PENANABCDroXGm5e

I rolled my eyes and stormed away without another word. I had to get away from this jerk before I ripped off his head and fed it to a dog.copyright protection18PENANAHCMq9T3xMF

Okay so you're probably wondering why I've hated him since fourth grade.copyright protection18PENANADGm9MCDiZl

Well I'll tell you why.copyright protection18PENANAoAY12nYJJ3

One day in elementary school, after I kissed Dylan Russo on the cheek for giving me a flower, Damon came up to us and asked Dylan why he was hanging around such an ugly girl.copyright protection18PENANAYrGKRPDVmq

Being the immature fourth grader I was, I ended up stomping on his foot and stating that he was way more ugly then me.copyright protection18PENANAA06XaTANbz

From that point on we were sworn enemies and everyone knew it. We constantly picked on each other about anything from bad hair days to the colour of shirt we were wearing.copyright protection18PENANA9z97BcuzVe

Even the teachers knew not to put us in the same class because it would only result in us disrupting the class with our bickering.copyright protection18PENANADTFjDx8htv

It was only the first day of senior year and first class hadn't even started yet, but we'd already gotten into an argument.copyright protection18PENANAH4wO1HIBvU

I stuffed the books I didn't need in my locker and slammed the door shut just as the bell rung, signalling that I needed to head to class.copyright protection18PENANAaEukM5xhEs

I was in a pretty good mood since it was the first day of senior year and all, but after my argument with Damon I wasn't so happy anymore.copyright protection18PENANAwimcB0JKic

That's the effect he had on me - the littlest thing like one wrong glance from him, and I wanted to rip someone's head off, preferably his.copyright protection18PENANAg0hMPiuxUZ

Luckily my first class was photography, which would put me in a better mood since it was one of my favourite classes.copyright protection18PENANAr5EWqr1XJG

I wanted to do something in the artistic field after high school so I've taken every art course possible during the three years I'd been in school here, and found that photography was my favourite.copyright protection18PENANAqfYNrzNbk6

I walked into class and was greeted with a wave of hellos. I smiled politely back at everyone even though I didn't know who half of them were.copyright protection18PENANAnA6FnVXRtS

I was pretty popular (if I do say so myself), and always had been. But so was Damon.copyright protection18PENANARUYwRoYSmH

We were in the same social circle which naturally made us hate each other more since we were competing with each other for the bragging rights of being more popular.copyright protection18PENANAyNWxAo7ozr

The only difference between us was I was the nice girl who talked to everyone and was loved by everyone, while Damon was the mean man-whore jock who gave nerds swirlies and shot spitballs at teachers.copyright protection18PENANAuX2BCpwAhZ

Ever since middle school we had been tied for the most popular, but this year would be different. I would finally come out on top and beat him.copyright protection18PENANAs9UqGLPEEb

I probably sound like a cliché "queen bee" right now, but popularity has never really been important to me. I'm not an attention seeker, and I couldn't care less if everyone liked me or not. I just wanted to beat Damon at anything and everything.copyright protection18PENANAldZiKzGRYg

I happily walked into my second period class, environmental awareness, and sat down in the middle of the room.copyright protection18PENANABSbwjRh9wW

Why was I in such a good mood? I haven't had to deal with Damon since this morning. So far today is going well apart from the incident this morning before classes started.copyright protection18PENANAkS9kaTURLS

The room quickly filled up and everyone took a seat. By the time the bell rang the room was quite full, and there was only one seat left. I vaguely wondered if that seat was meant for someone or just an extra seat.copyright protection18PENANA74mlqrbb2B

My question was quickly answered when someone burst into class just as the teacher was about to begin roll call.copyright protection18PENANAdDtp9NhrWN

I didn't even look over to see who it was because I didn't care. I hate it when people are late to class, it just means they don't care about their education.copyright protection18PENANAnhFwBQqvIb

I heard a sharp intake of breath and then curses being mumbled quietly but furiously, before the late person finally said "What is she doing here?"copyright protection18PENANAoQgLbGcmSe

My head immediately snapped to the direction of the door where the ignorant person was still standing. I'd recognize that voice anywhere.copyright protection18PENANAX5Srv2eMtb

Damon Blake.copyright protection18PENANAARsgo46OzO

Next my head snapped to the teacher. "For once I agree with him. What are we doing in the same class?" copyright protection18PENANA0YFgJQXVdP

Before our teacher, Mr. Willis, could utter a single word, Damon opened up his big mouth again and interrupted.copyright protection18PENANAabU3Cq5Rcy

"Maybe you're in the wrong class Soph. I mean, you are a stupid blonde."copyright protection18PENANA2Nqu3Oz9C8

My blood boiled and instinctively my hands clenched into fists. But instead of arguing back like I usually would, I just turned to the teacher again.copyright protection18PENANAYC7ETRuQNI

"See, this is exactly why we can't be in the same class. This pinhead doesn't know how to keep his big mouth shut."copyright protection18PENANAFYTA1v06nd

Mr. Willis just smiled at us and told Damon to take a seat.copyright protection18PENANAFp15U4Utew

This teacher was surely crazy if he thought he could handle us for a year.copyright protection18PENANACd9KR3BmTp

All throughout class Damon would make rude little comments when I would answer a question. Snide remarks like "nerd" and "know-it-all". The kind of insults that got under my skin, and Damon knew it.copyright protection18PENANA4ynX9otavQ

But being the mature one, I ignored it instead of arguing and disrupting the class. I knew that if someone ever disrupted a class that I was trying to learn in, I definitely wouldn't be happy.copyright protection18PENANAoagpgbtaEI

Too bad Damon didn't think that way. Instead he took it up a notch and started throwing paper airplanes at my head. How cliché.copyright protection18PENANAHhVR1MUD8N

After class I was definitely going to have a little chat with him.copyright protection18PENANA2dmpawOEGj

Once the bell rang I quickly made my way out of the room and leaned on the wall close to the door. That way when Damon came out I would be able to talk to him about what he did in class.copyright protection18PENANAv4uLuKWYVB

As I expected, Damon was the last one out, And as always, he had an expression that said he didn't have a care in the world.copyright protection18PENANAGCSCuUooxx

I caught his arm and spun him around so he was facing me. The look of surprise on his face was amusing but I pushed that aside because I was angry at him.copyright protection18PENANAczKyZV4OAL

"You might not care about your marks but I sure care about mine. I won't have you disrupting my learning just because you hate me!" I started off.copyright protection18PENANA85QCQknNii

Damon's surprised expression quickly turned to one of annoyance but I didn't care. I just kept ranting.copyright protection18PENANApZVhBpb0NJ

"I have no idea what was running through that teacher's head when he decided to put us in the same class. But we can't change it now so we better make the most of it. Let's just pretend like we don't even know each other in class. Okay?" I finished.copyright protection18PENANAxZiiyieD7O

Damon just blinked at me, not saying a word. Then he shook his head and said "Huh?"copyright protection18PENANAofTfSKzfyS

My face went red as anger coursed through my veins.copyright protection18PENANAyXRtfsSqtG

"You weren't even listening!" I yelled.copyright protection18PENANAa0GsjeLyST

This kid sure did have some nerve.copyright protection18PENANAng8hv015gA

"Do you really expect me to listen to you rant for ten minutes?" he asked. Then quickly added "Don't answer that. Anyway, you've just wasted like half my lunch so I'm just gonna go."copyright protection18PENANAYOyPiNibeL

And before I could saying anything he was half way down the hall.copyright protection18PENANARoMyR6MDEE

I've never hated a human as much as I hated him. How could someone be so self-centered, cocky, ignorant, stupid, and above all, annoying?copyright protection18PENANAw1VEjrFlxW

After I took a few deep breaths to calm down, I headed to the cafeteria.copyright protection18PENANAVvKtl3hDev

I immediately went to my table that consisted of cheerleaders, dancers and jocks.copyright protection18PENANAp6UcELiroX

No, I wasn't a cheerleader. I was actually the most athletically inclined person you'd ever meet. The only reason I was at this table was because everyone there liked me. Truthfully I didn't even know why I was popular.copyright protection18PENANA5UZ1zitfD1

Everyone welcomed me with warm hellos and then went back to eating.copyright protection18PENANAbzwW2RZkvd

I started chatting with a couple girls from the dance team when suddenly the whole table was looking at me.copyright protection18PENANAPVjJ7XvpoT

"What?" I asked, confused as to why I was suddenly the center of attention.copyright protection18PENANAnuOmwnF0Di

"Is it true that you and Damon are in the same Environmental Awareness class?" asked Kyle, captain of the basketball team.copyright protection18PENANA1ORxKUpJfV

I let out an annoyed huff before answering. "Unfortunately it's true, I'm stuck with the annoying jerk for a whole year! How am I ever going to survive?"copyright protection18PENANAX4QhOXfknD

Yeah, I could be really dramatic. Maybe I should join the drama club. copyright protection18PENANAeL827FqMF3

Nah, I'm too lazy.copyright protection18PENANA5HSXfCSEm7

"I don't know how you could possibly hate Damon. He's just so dreamy, definitely drool worthy. Don't his looks affect you at all?" asked Candy, the head cheerleader.copyright protection18PENANAAkcrB1oRlM

Pretty much only the head of the sports teams and their second in commands talked.copyright protection18PENANAuzxDCFj3sY

"Um ew, no. I'm immune to his 'good looks'." I said, air quoting 'good looks'.copyright protection18PENANA7yGZvVCnAY

"Maybe she's a lesbian" one of the dumb cheerleaders suggested to Candy.copyright protection18PENANAvajHBVI0M3

I rolled my eyes. "Not that there's anything wrong with being a lesbian, but I'm completely straight." I told the group.copyright protection18PENANANhDlVg0ejt

Some of the guys let out relieved sighs.copyright protection18PENANAdq1TpwO1Uo

I rolled my eyes again. They just wanted to get into my pants. Stupid hormonal jerks.copyright protection18PENANA0pzj7afPa1

Suddenly there was a roar of laughter from the table beside us that just so happened to be Damon's table. It consisted of the school whores and whatever jocks were stupid enough to hang around him.copyright protection18PENANATYixjdNkr6

I was pleasantly surprised to see that my table had more people at it than Damon's. I was definitely going to have the title of "more popular than Damon" this year.copyright protection18PENANANFwOyWlnXf

Damon looked over at my table and winced slightly, but I still caught it. When he looked at me I shot a smug smirk his way before turning my attention back to my friends.copyright protection18PENANALXFkhMvwCG

He knew just as well as I did that he was going to lose the popularity contest this year. The thought of him finally not getting what he wanted was more than pleasing.copyright protection18PENANAywEQ3X4Qhw

Suddenly the bell rung and everyone got up to go to their next class. I was about to walk out of the cafeteria when someone grabbed my arm and roughly spun me around.copyright protection18PENANAX5btTKqe7n

I came face to face, or should I say face to chest, with Damon.copyright protection18PENANAuTlaeDXJaz

"What do you want?" I snapped irritably, ripping my arm out if his grasp and rubbing where he had previously holding me.copyright protection18PENANApI64z92D0j

"Just because you have a few more people at your table, doesn't mean you're gonna win this year." he stated confidentially, although I saw the doubt in his eyes. He wasn't so sure that what he said was the truth.copyright protection18PENANAaXolri5Rxd

I laughed before replying "A few? There were at least six more people at my table. It seems as though you've lost some recruits since last year."copyright protection18PENANAf26Bcke93o

He grumbled something under his breath before pushing past me and walking out the door, but before he was out of hearing distance, I heard him say "This isn't over."copyright protection18PENANAJt7PxGZAkZ

How cliché can one person get?copyright protection18PENANATuXiQoBWg8

I rolled my eyes and walked out the door. I wasn't even half way to my class when the bell rung. Crap, I'm late!copyright protection18PENANA9waf7nAlxE

I sprinted the rest of the way and burst into the classroom when I arrived.copyright protection18PENANAKg7R5Fy5fS

Everyone, including the teacher, stopped what they were doing and looked at me like I just murdered two people.copyright protection18PENANA49n1sdq49H

"Miss Mackenzie, you're late." Mrs. McGirr stated.copyright protection18PENANAcidnykL8Fi

What? Really?! I didn't notice. copyright protection18PENANANqyVhEBQJQ

When I didn't say anything she tried again "Why are you late?"copyright protection18PENANAIO05Ptjgxs

"Because a pinhead named Damon Blake wouldn't let me go to class, instead he was snapping at me because he's jealous." I explained, shrugging innocently and giving her my best puppy dog eyes.copyright protection18PENANAXKLa8jvTsb

Mrs. McGirr rolled her eyes but I could see that I was in the clear. "You're excused this time, but don't let it happen again."copyright protection18PENANAbfBKaSpMJ9

"Thank you Mrs. McGirr." I said as I walked to the middle of the room to sit in my usual spot.copyright protection18PENANACrXDxN7Q3E

Classes again went by in a flash and soon it was the end of the day. I made a quick stop at my locker to drop off my books before exiting the school.copyright protection18PENANAi1p3bxnHrQ

I hopped into my little punch buggy, which I named Victoria, after someone very special to me, and drove home listening to one of my favourite singers, Troye Sivan.copyright protection18PENANASD5tngmN25

When I got close to my house I saw an all too familiar car blocking my driveway.copyright protection18PENANAWFxTj4GqVK

You've got to be kidding me!copyright protection18PENANA5eLvhX3FEu

I got out of my car after parking it on the side of the street in front of my house, and stomped over to the next door neighbours house.copyright protection18PENANAvw8B0wSmjV

I rung the doorbell and when no one answered I got impatient and started pounding on the door.copyright protection18PENANAsfAZ9U3QlY

Eventually it opened, revealing a smirking Damon.copyright protection18PENANAAqdlWvjZaX

Yup, the jerk lived right beside me. And to make matters worse, his bedroom window was no more than five feet away from mine.copyright protection18PENANAuGuChu8aRr

"Sophia? What a surprise." Damon said, feigning innocence.copyright protection18PENANA5jHGiRAmHV

"Get your cheap car out of my driveway now!" I demanded.copyright protection18PENANAlhmyDi3Xie

Damon laughed but did as I said, never taking that stupid smirk off his face.copyright protection18PENANAVMUpocUwmM

Without another word I stomped back to my car and pulled into my driveway.copyright protection18PENANAYr6G7pxIMf

Could this day get any worse?copyright protection18PENANAE7x1GakK8C
