“Right this way, Katelyn.” Mr. Shaller then said gesturing to her with one of his fingers, and they both began to walk out of the cafeteria together, Katelyn a few feet in front of him. I had assumed that she was on her way to the principal’s office. But as she walked in front of Mr. Shaller on her way out of the cafeteria, she turned back looking over her shoulder at me with a giggle and gave me a small smile, and I couldn’t help myself but to laugh a little myself and smile right back at her.
After that, Erik, Donnie, Harlin, and the bitches pretty much kept to themselves until the period ended. I also had managed to lie low until the day was over, then I disappeared from the school’s grounds as soon as the last bell had rung.
On my walk back home joining me were two strays. They were both a little on the smaller side, one an olive-brown, the other a smoky grey. They kept pace with me as I walked, and I played with them by waving around a small tree branch that still had a few leaves attached to it.

My step daddy then knowing full well that I would dig-in-my-heals then tried to mollify me by saying, “Yeah, well... We’ll see what we can get for it on a trade-in after you get your license then, okay?” He then lit up a cigarette, grinning at me like a fool.

- Fuckin’, Bitch. Oh, no you just didn 't, I thought. “Is that right?” Tucker then said back to her, or maybe he was talking to me but I couldn 't tell at the moment. My mind was fully stuck on how I was going to pay Katelyn back for this one. You see, not only was I not the sort of girl who goes to dances. But, given the fact that Keri, Laurie, and Hallie would surely be at the dance along with their meatheads, and with Abellona out there somewhere plotting my demise, adding to that Tucker and Owens’s ability to find trouble....

In the end, though, seven kids die from the illness before it finally broke and went away just as fast as it came.” “That’s terrible, but how does that tie into my grandmother?” I asked. “Relax, I’m getting to that....
