Chapter 2: SchoolMature

~TERRI'S POV~

It was break and I got my drum sticks out of my bag and started playing some sort of beat on the bench I was sitting on.

"Wow! Is that a new beat for your song?" Evie asked putting her book down.

"I don't know, probably." I shrugged,

"Can we hear a bit of it?" Rory asked, I smiled and cleared my throat.

"I'll Stop The Whole World

I'll Stop The Whole World From Turning Into A Monster

Eating Us Alive

Don't You Ever Wonder How We Survived?

Well, Now That You're Gone The World Is Ours

Oh Oh Oh Oh

Oh Oh Oh Oh...How was that?" I asked smirking

"Wow Terri, that was...incredible." Evie smiled,

"You think so?" I asked, Rory nodded.

"I know so." Rory said and kissed me.

"Ew, look, the freak is spreading her germs." I heard Lindsay say, I pulled away from Rory and looked at her,

"What's that supposed to mean?" I asked.

"Terri! She's not worth it!" Evie said.

"It means that half of us don't want you in this school because you’re a freak. Of. Nature." Lindsay spat, I balled my hand into a fist.

"Terri, let it go." Rory said worryingly, I wanted to punch Lindsay's lights out, then the bell rang for third period, I picked up my bag and walked with Evie and Rory to History

"Yeah that's it, run away!" I heard Lindsay say, I turned around and punched her in the face and walked away shaking my hand,

"You OK?" Evie asked.

"Yeah, that felt good." I smiled.

"I'LL GET YOU FOR THIS YOU BITCH!" Lindsay screamed, I pretended not to hear her.

"Ignore her baby." Rory said and kissed me.

I went through the day just ignoring Lindsay until music class, I had to sing a song I wrote and made music for, after Eve sang her song, I got up and plugged my ipod in.

“Hi, I’m Terri Collins-Sawyer and this is called Jump Off.” I smiled.

“Get that girl a lifetime away from me

She can't rock it to my world shaking her peachy B.U.T.

Give that girl a lesson in anarchy

We all know that too much work can lead to a trip to A&E

Tell that girl the best things in life ain't free

'Cause homework's a dirty word

The teachers are just plain B.A.D.

Get that girl some originality

Just look after number one

And don't care about no one but me

There inside your big brown eyes lie angels when they fall

But down the line you realise it hardly hurts at all

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Jump off

And give in to your own punk beat

If that's what you want

Jump off

Together we can jump off the beat

Yeah, yeah, yeah(x2)

Get that girl a lifetime away from me

She can't rock it to my world shaking her peachy B.U.T.

Give that girl a lesson in anarchy

She's either a gal like us or else she's a T.RA.M.P.

Tell me girl are you with us? Are you willing to swear?

You gotta dance with your sisters or get out of my hair

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Jump off

And give in to your own punk beat

If that's what you want

Jump off

Together we can jump off the beat

Yeah, yeah, yeah(x2)

We can take this city together

And doing it with our sisters is better

And we can make our own kind of voodoo

Or we can spend the night in like you do

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Jump off

And give in to your own punk beat

If that's what you want

Jump off

Together we can jump off the beat

Yeah, yeah, yeah(x2)” I sang, everyone in class except for Lindsay and her friends applauded.

“Ms Waters?” Lindsay asked.

“Yes Lindsay?” Ms Waters answered.

“Me and the girls feel a bit wary to Terri’s song as it sounded angry and targeted at us.” Lindsay said.

“Right...Terri you have a week to change the song or you will fail this class.” Ms Waters said.

“Right.” I said just as the bell went, Lindsay smirked at me and left, I picked up my ipod and bag and left the room.

“Terri!” Evie called out following.

“I’m OK!” I said tears rolling down my cheeks.

“Bullshit! Terri you worked hard on that song.” Rory said, I looked around and seen my Dad.

“Look, I’d love to debate about whether it was fair or not, but I gotta go.” I said.

"Want us to follow?" Rory asked, I shook my head.

"I wanna go home and sleep." I said.

"OK, see you tomorrow at the Mall." Evie said and hugged me, I hugged her back and I kissed Rory on the cheek and went to my dads car.

~AN HOUR LATER DAVIDS POV~

Terri had just gone up to bed and I sat down on the couch and Smelly jumped up next to me sensing I was sad,

"I'm OK boy," I said, I turned on the TV and the game was on, around half an hour later Bryan came through the door, he put some shopping bags on the table.

"Hey Babe." I said taking a sip of my beer.

"Hey, No people food for Smelly." he said, "Where's Terri?"

"Aw he loves it, she's in bed...had a rough day." I said stroking behind Smelly's ears.

"I need to tell you something." he said.

"Gotta wait til half time!" I told him, he glanced at the tv

"Is that when Madonna sings?" he asked, I laughed a little, "Anyway, I was shopping..."

"Mmm! Here we go! Five liner game! Money!" I said, but stopped incase I woke Terri up.

"OK, fine, fine, fine, fine! I'll hurry it up but I was trying to paint you a picture." Bryan said quickly.

"What? Yes." I said, Bryan then smiled and pulled out a small baby sized cardigan, "Bry we have to talk about your dieting." I said.

"Honey, when I saw that miniture person, who's skin was flawless by the way, I really got it, I want us to have baby clothes, and a baby to wear them." he smiled, I looked at him, put my beer down and turned the tv off.

"Sweetie, you know you can't return a baby to Barney's?" I told him.

"David..." he started walking over to the sofa and sitting down, "Look, you are the kindest man I've ever had the pleasure to love, you would be an amazing father, you would feed the child, bathe him, or care for him in the middle of the night, when he has Ruebella or anything else contagious." he said,

"How do you know what Ruebella is?" I asked,

"Lost On The Prairie." he said.

"Oh, what would you do?" I asked.

"Me? I'm the fun dad." he smiled,

"Oh..." I smiled and gave Bryan a high five with Smelly's paw.

"So, shall we tell Terri?" Bryan asked.

"Yeah, she needs a bit of good news after today." I said.

"Tell me what?" I heard Terri ask.

~TERRI'S POV~

I looked at Papa and Dad as they looked at me, I must have looked like a mess, I took my makeup off, my hair was everywhere and I was in my pjs, the long Pajama sleeves hid the scars on my wrists.

"Hey sweetie how was school?" Papa asked me.

"It was OK." I said. pulling out the mint choc chip ice cream from the freezer.

"Alright, anyway, we wanna ask you something." Dad said, Nanook came running down and I picked him up.

"Ooh your getting heavy! Yeah?" I asked, Papa had a playful smirk on his face.

"How would you like to be a big sister?" Papa asked,

"Another dog? We have four already!" I laughed, dad laughed also.

"No, to a baby brother or sister." Papa said, my smile faded a bit as I thought about it, sure Dad and Papa gave me a great upbringing but what if one day the kid walks in on me when I'm upset.

"Terri?" Dad asked, I shook my head slightly.

"Sorry Zoned out, yeah sure!" I said smiling, I was gonna be a big sister.

The End
