Why him07 Jul, 2017 03:47 AM
I couldnt make out why he had to be so...troublesome. He always has to have is way. He always has to have any girl he wants. He had the most amazing, not-a-care-in-the-world life. Why did he have to step into mine?
Ethan Parker: The most stubborn guy on the planet. Star football player and total jackass. Every girl is head over heels for him. I just dont really understand why. He has terrible grades, hes slept with half the school, and he doesnt care about anyone but himself. The only thing he really has going for him is his hair, his body, his smile...i just mean he doesnt have a lot of good qualities. But hey, at least hes going to college.
Mondays were my tutoring days. I usually come for about a couple hours so it will look good on my college application. I was just finishing up and of course Ethan Parker had to walk through those doors. He had this irritable look on his face that he didnt want to be here. He had a black backpack slung over his shoulder and he was handing the teacher a blank piece of paper, or so I thought it was blank. The teacher called me over and introduced me to Ethan. "Ms.Vow, this is going to be another one of your students."
Are u SERIOUS!!?? Okay, Keep your cool Blake. Everything is okay. "How about you tell him everything he needs to know." Ms. Rider points us to my table, smiling as if everything is ok. I walk to the back and he follows. "I am available Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. I dont do excuses so if you dont come I dont reschedule. I dont provide materials so bring your own. When we work, you will not slack off, be distracted in any way, or waste my time. You dont come late Or we dont have a session. You dont leave early or you dont get full hours. And last, I do not care about your personal life, about your friends, and about your sport. I take my job very seriously and no one whos been with me has failed. When I need to talk to you, I dont care where you are i will talk. Or that little paper you got there doesnt get signed. And Im guessing you need it in order to play this season. So, are my instructions clear?" He nods his head and smiles."Great 7:30, Monday morning."
Ethan was pretty persistent in the sessions. He never missed one, never was late, and always tried his hardest. We mostly did calculus, but drifted towards AP biology too. "You dont really talk." Ethan said. "What do you mean?" I replied. "You never talk about yourself. I dont really know you." "listen Ethan you are only doing this tutoring for a couple weeks after that we go back to the normal people we are. I go back to tutoring other kids and you go back to being a star football player who hangs out with the most popular kids and who sleeps around and dates every girl he can get. I dont plan on becoming close with you thats why I do not want to get to know you and I dont want you to get to know me. I Know Who You Are, the guy who gets everything he wants but, you dont understand that some people have to work for what they want. I need this so, stop chit-chatting and just let me work with you." He pauses and looks at me, annoyed by what I just said.
"Youre wrong you dont know me you dont know the things that I have to earn. Like my scholarship for football I have to earn that. I dont sleep around and I know thats what you believe because thats what you hear. The BS rumors that go around the school. But you dont know the truth you dont know what my side of the story is. Which is I dont sleep around I earn what I get and I care about other people other than myself. So dont come around talking about that you know me when you dont. "I looked at him. he was right I had no reason to judge him. I dont know what he has to learn and I didnt know his story or his life. I had no right to say what I did. "Violet... my middle name is violet, if you wanted to know something about me." He smiled.
"James, if you were wondering." I couldnt help but smile at him. What is happening?
