Re: 35 Tickets
Aaron stared out the window. Class was boring without Mira there. Dakota was in the back, bothering the girls, Rosalie was doing her make up as usual, and Maylena stayed home with Mira. He rolled a pencil across the desk thinking. Mira was always a bit strange around him, but she was just acting plain weird now. She almost seemed like she was mad at him.
"She's so confusing." He thought and fliped the pencil over. "Women."
"You seem distant today." Rosalie said sitting on the desk next to him.
He just shrugged and flipped the pencil over again. "Thinking."
Rosalie rolled her eyes. "Obviously. Does it have something to do with Mira?"
He looked up at her. "Ho-"
"I just had the feeling. She's been acting a bit weird lately." Rosalie sighed. "I'm a bit worried."
"I noticed it too." Aaron said. "It just seems like she's upset about something."
"I heard her talking to Eric on the phone a couple days ago so I really am worried. It may be guy problems." Rosalie said.
"If it was guy problems wouldn't she go to you or Maylena?" Aaron asked.
"That's what's worrying me. She won't talk about it to any of us." Rosalie said holding her hands up in a questioning manner. "She's been talking to Eric more and more. She was at the mall with him yesterday."
Aaron's eye twitched. "What the hell would she be doing with Eric?"
"I don't know. A couple people are spreading rumors that they're dating, but Mira denies it." Rosalie looked the other way thinking. "It almost seems like she's doing two things."
"And they are?"
"Trying to make a certain guy jealous, or trying to forget about that guy." Rosalie said.
Aaron bit the inside of his lip. Eric? What the hell was she thinking? He rolled his eyes in frustration. Eric was probably just trying to piss him off, but then again, why would she be going along with him?
"Maybe you should try talking to her tonight. She may tell you what's wrong." Rosalie sighed.
"I'll call her after school." Aaron said. "After I ask Eric a few things."
"What do you mean she just suddenly started talking to you?" Aaron asked. He and Eric were standing outside the school doors. A few people were watching, hoping for a fight.
"Just what I mean. She called me about a week ago and was being all sweet and nice to me." Eric said. "I'm just as lost and confused as you are."
Aaron sighed in irritation. "Is there anything else off about her?"
"Not that I can tell." He said looking at him strangely. "Do you have any idea why she's doing this?"
"If I knew I wouldn't have asked you." Aaron said coldly. It was killing him just to stand there and talk to him. "I'll say this right now. You do anything to hurt her, I'll kill you."
He truned and walked away with a huff. Reaching into his pocket he pulled his phone out and went through his contacts, looking for Mira's number. He pushed a button and held the phone to his ear.
"Mira, what were you doing at the mall with Eric?" Aaron asked.
"Nothing. I figured since you were busy with Megan and no on else wanted to come, I'd go with him." I said almost to sweetly.
Truth was, I was trying to get my mind off of him. If he wanted Megan so badly he could have her, I'll stay out of the way, gladly.
"Why, does it bother you?" I asked.
"A bit." He said and I rolled my eyes.
"Why would it?" I asked a bit nastily. "Why should you care? You're attention is on Megan most of the time, I'm surprised you noticed."
He was silent for a moment and then he laughed a bit. "Jealous?"
"Of course not." I said almost too defensivly.
"Whatever you say." He said. "But seriously. Why are you talking to Eric?"
"Because I can?" I said. "I've got to go. My mom wants me." I siad and hung the phone up. Me? Jealous? Of course I was. I wasn't going to admit that to him though.
Darling, you'd make a lovely corpse.
