Standing Up To Life Book 2 Ch 39 Pt 2

Chapter 39 Part 2

She led us to the cafeteria at that point still several minutes before everyone else was going to be released. As we stood in line all the people that Amy had listed off also showed up. When we all had our food she led us back to the conference room where we immediately began getting interrogated by them.

“Tiffany, what’s going on?” Lindsey asked me when Mrs. Henry had left.

“Someone put some graffiti on out lockers - and they’re overreacting…” I answered, know that was probably not true.

“I don’t know Tiff. I heard about what they put on your lockers - I’m kind of worried about you two,” Kyle said.

“It’s just graffiti Kyle,” Amy told him.

“But where does it stop? I can definitely see your parents getting upset. The stuff on the lockers was really bad,” he told her.

“So are you two going to be let back into class today?” Nikki asked.

“I don’t know…” I said.

“I guess our parents don’t want us to do anything until they’ve made it down here,” I told them.

“Tiffany, this isn’t the first note you’ve gotten this week…” Amy said.

“What other notes have you gotten?” David asked me.

I told them about everything that had started last Friday. “This is so stupid, what’s their problem? It’s not like you’re hurting anyone Tiff,” Kyle said to me.

Our friends helped us vent in that manner for about twenty minutes before Mrs. Henry came back in and sent them off to class.

“Okay girls, your parents should be here soon - as soon as they are we’ll talk about what we’re going to do about this. Hopefully we’ll be able to get you back into your classes by the end of the day.”

We both just sat there bored for the next ten minutes after that. To say that we were mad would have been an understatement. Several of our classes in the afternoon were supposed to have tests - and we were going to have to make those up in addition to all of our other makeup work for the week. I was just hoping that maybe we could finish the day without it turning into something worse than it already had.

“Tiffany, did you remember about today after school?” Amy asked.


“Mom’s taking us to the salon! You didn’t forget did you?”

“Actually… with everything else going on this week I’d completely forgotten about it.” I paused “Amy, is it ever going to stay normal for any length of time?” I asked.

“I don’t know Tiffany. I have a feeling if we can make it through this year things’ll get forgotten eventually. Maybe even enough that this stuff will stop happening.”

“Maybe I should have gone to a different school this year.”

“Absolutely not Tiffany. Look for every one of these jerks that are doing this stuff you have a friend who cares about you here. Just hang on there - we’ll get through this,” she told me.

“Amy, I don’t know what I’d do without you,” I told her.

“Be bored all the time of course!” she told me.

“So have you gotten anything out of your dad what all we’re doing in New York besides the film festival?” I asked her.

“No. He’s keeping everything a secret from me. I think they’ve told our parents…but everyone is trying to surprise us for some reason.”

“I guess it’s not a big deal - it should be fun either way. My parents and I have never been to New York.”

“Mine have - Dad actually went to school somewhere in the area for a few years. Mom also has some family out there that she used to visit when she was a kid. But I haven’t been there before either.”

“Cool,” I said. “I’m kind of hoping to see a couple of cool sights like the Statue of Liberty and Central Park.”

“Well the place where the festival is happening is actually in the city… so maybe we will get to do that. I’ve never been there before either. Personally I’d like to go see a show on Broadway… and maybe go to Fifth Avenue.”

“What’s on Fifth Avenue?”

“What do you mean ‘what’s on Fifth Avenue?’ You don’t know what Fifth Avenue is?”

I shook my head.
