haven't we been nice enough

haven't we been nice enough




"What was the fight about?" Simon bought Will a bottle of water. Finally, he escaped the Dean's office a little after the last bell rang.

Will looked so tired, big enough to be a football player, and yet he never went out for sports. He drank down the bottle of cold water.

"It was about you," Will said. "Who else would they be fighting over."

Simon couldn't help but smirk.

"Are you... serious?" Simon didn't want to believe him. Did Bree still like him? Maybe, Ivy did like him, after all. Simon couldn't help to be open to laughter. This kind of made his day. Although, he didn't like fighting of any kind. Especially girls fighting. And he didn't even see it. He shook his head.

"I'm sure..its..its just an excuse for something else." Simon quickly decided it was best not to worry about either one of those girls.

"Yeah, I'm sure it was over the fact..you're the only guy who's trying out for cheerleading." Will looked at him, blankly.

"Who told you that?" Simon shook with laughter. Now, Will was teasing him. "I'm trying out for a play."

"A play?" Will tilted his head, as if that was hard to imagine.

"You, should tryout." Suddenly, it was as if he was doing a shout out for the drama club.

Just then a girl with skinny legs and dark hair came over. She was carrying some of Simon's books. Simon looked over his shoulder then back at Will.

"Even, Valentina, is trying out." Naturally, Simon did the polite thing. He introduced Valentina to Will. Of course, Will was as stoic as he ever was.
