"I hate you!" I screamed, to none other than Damon Blake, the guy I've hated since the fourth grade.copyright protection37PENANA5F72yG1iuN

He scoffed "I wouldn't want it any other way."copyright protection37PENANAol4YIN4dzO

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 protection37PENANA3LisIPCfYB

Okay so you're probably wondering why I've hated him since fourth grade.copyright protection37PENANA63ge6PV78q

Well I'll tell you why.copyright protection37PENANAUwLZvtMzHl

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 protection37PENANAoK7GcQvO5u

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 protection37PENANAqcyHrEwmME

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 protection37PENANAMGbyGG2tgJ

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 protection37PENANAPEuWkHMQwS

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 protection37PENANAlW4TDwyaTk

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 protection37PENANAPG10eIHhbY

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 protection37PENANA00DvWXcIOI

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 protection37PENANABaFG4jcCt5

Luckily my first class was photography, which would put me in a better mood since it was one of my favourite classes.copyright protection37PENANAXiLYj0G1hS

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 protection37PENANAZhSCNPAZyp

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 protection37PENANAI9znPDG2ga

I was pretty popular (if I do say so myself), and always had been. But so was Damon.copyright protection37PENANA7dsTcMTSNa

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 protection37PENANALNsDqft0f1

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 protection37PENANAqXbZl1D13T

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 protection37PENANAbb7E4jrXce

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 protection37PENANA7X2ABsP4s5

I happily walked into my second period class, environmental awareness, and sat down in the middle of the room.copyright protection37PENANAqByxgCRHA3

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 protection37PENANAWI1YiCq8HT

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 protection37PENANAdOMg6FDpb3

My question was quickly answered when someone burst into class just as the teacher was about to begin roll call.copyright protection37PENANANCFlaVY1Cy

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 protection37PENANA5yg7xzJXHr

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 protection37PENANAQUfCalhOLt

My head immediately snapped to the direction of the door where the ignorant person was still standing. I'd recognize that voice anywhere.copyright protection37PENANASy5xUfsSh5

Damon Blake.copyright protection37PENANAqmEHtbgd9Y

Next my head snapped to the teacher. "For once I agree with him. What are we doing in the same class?" copyright protection37PENANAFZTUC3gUS1

Before our teacher, Mr. Willis, could utter a single word, Damon opened up his big mouth again and interrupted.copyright protection37PENANAnLAsiuILmZ

"Maybe you're in the wrong class Soph. I mean, you are a stupid blonde."copyright protection37PENANARNmwuQIL4R

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 protection37PENANAJJRCDtGUnz

"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 protection37PENANAVLkwdD0Wom

Mr. Willis just smiled at us and told Damon to take a seat.copyright protection37PENANAWfajME9uqe

This teacher was surely crazy if he thought he could handle us for a year.copyright protection37PENANAl9YcMBGsv3

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 protection37PENANA1rOmX2ZYZn

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 protection37PENANAlVDveq9oUA

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 protection37PENANADfJBsvd8YJ

After class I was definitely going to have a little chat with him.copyright protection37PENANAc0a0m83m63

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 protection37PENANAKrYoWdO6BI

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 protection37PENANAGfXqQpW3yU

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 protection37PENANAMKUXLh5ODc

"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 protection37PENANARnDQLA3zHF

Damon's surprised expression quickly turned to one of annoyance but I didn't care. I just kept ranting.copyright protection37PENANAhoUfOLFKOd

"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 protection37PENANAFAXAyIRDxu

Damon just blinked at me, not saying a word. Then he shook his head and said "Huh?"copyright protection37PENANAQpSufD4jdM

My face went red as anger coursed through my veins.copyright protection37PENANAZvaUKZFpKu

"You weren't even listening!" I yelled.copyright protection37PENANACq5A0DiRhQ

This kid sure did have some nerve.copyright protection37PENANAm7feBvSGP5

"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 protection37PENANAsOADJlDpKo

And before I could saying anything he was half way down the hall.copyright protection37PENANATnOYXOBgFT

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 protection37PENANA620mgBR9iG

After I took a few deep breaths to calm down, I headed to the cafeteria.copyright protection37PENANAfLvQofb2EW

I immediately went to my table that consisted of cheerleaders, dancers and jocks.copyright protection37PENANAqxkewh38yI

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 protection37PENANA1FL111DSbW

Everyone welcomed me with warm hellos and then went back to eating.copyright protection37PENANAzqH5g5kr8Y

I started chatting with a couple girls from the dance team when suddenly the whole table was looking at me.copyright protection37PENANAoywIN20Qaz

"What?" I asked, confused as to why I was suddenly the center of attention.copyright protection37PENANAzcekefmR7x

"Is it true that you and Damon are in the same Environmental Awareness class?" asked Kyle, captain of the basketball team.copyright protection37PENANANHXvMeB6GJ

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 protection37PENANA54hCN5ENVP

Yeah, I could be really dramatic. Maybe I should join the drama club. copyright protection37PENANAmu2AOgPa7X

Nah, I'm too lazy.copyright protection37PENANAIVEFqrT1yz

"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 protection37PENANALEE2gr8Vf3

Pretty much only the head of the sports teams and their second in commands talked.copyright protection37PENANALByNcm32xb

"Um ew, no. I'm immune to his 'good looks'." I said, air quoting 'good looks'.copyright protection37PENANA0g6FVx6PzE

"Maybe she's a lesbian" one of the dumb cheerleaders suggested to Candy.copyright protection37PENANApli4ozvwuL

I rolled my eyes. "Not that there's anything wrong with being a lesbian, but I'm completely straight." I told the group.copyright protection37PENANAzfn72zu5C2

Some of the guys let out relieved sighs.copyright protection37PENANAgCinheVo3v

I rolled my eyes again. They just wanted to get into my pants. Stupid hormonal jerks.copyright protection37PENANA3tQmxeV3Kp

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 protection37PENANAOkFbsHLWNn

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 protection37PENANAZ40hsivoGz

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 protection37PENANAUJ3K5BZ1EK

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 protection37PENANAqt46EwOqtB

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 protection37PENANAOsGOK96gxN

I came face to face, or should I say face to chest, with Damon.copyright protection37PENANAQrwTcCucD9

"What do you want?" I snapped irritably, ripping my arm out if his grasp and rubbing where he had previously holding me.copyright protection37PENANAW4C1ahyYH1

"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 protection37PENANAAwugkfqrvX

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 protection37PENANAelpLeCnJO1

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 protection37PENANASL5vNgNlfv

How cliché can one person get?copyright protection37PENANAnP1S6l7wMC

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 protection37PENANAu1XUMcwaWl

I sprinted the rest of the way and burst into the classroom when I arrived.copyright protection37PENANAbP7hkUx8fM

Everyone, including the teacher, stopped what they were doing and looked at me like I just murdered two people.copyright protection37PENANADDCEvI0CfN

"Miss Mackenzie, you're late." Mrs. McGirr stated.copyright protection37PENANAfKOdEApbKl

What? Really?! I didn't notice. copyright protection37PENANAxWaEdvyLDO

When I didn't say anything she tried again "Why are you late?"copyright protection37PENANAxhsaVXSVA8

"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 protection37PENANAIPSx2x8sIS

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 protection37PENANAOgPZU2utN8

"Thank you Mrs. McGirr." I said as I walked to the middle of the room to sit in my usual spot.copyright protection37PENANAhlpKvlHogi

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 protection37PENANAwZ8pxbWFDF

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 protection37PENANAxrVnqPpVjc

When I got close to my house I saw an all too familiar car blocking my driveway.copyright protection37PENANA4Bytl3O2r5

You've got to be kidding me!copyright protection37PENANAlX5tnCEjhh

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 protection37PENANAZPJUcaKC63

I rung the doorbell and when no one answered I got impatient and started pounding on the door.copyright protection37PENANAPaEnDZqs2S

Eventually it opened, revealing a smirking Damon.copyright protection37PENANAynQERdhvxy

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 protection37PENANANwoxrBHbeN

"Sophia? What a surprise." Damon said, feigning innocence.copyright protection37PENANAf3XUqBUR4X

"Get your cheap car out of my driveway now!" I demanded.copyright protection37PENANAJDlAhcNyHk

Damon laughed but did as I said, never taking that stupid smirk off his face.copyright protection37PENANA7vRw2i8Kum

Without another word I stomped back to my car and pulled into my driveway.copyright protection37PENANAxJpvEQ7yIc

Could this day get any worse?copyright protection37PENANAvsPQ263PFK
