“Don’t get me wrong, Kitty,” Nick said. “We loved your gifts too. The apartment has never looked better. You’ll be Jaan’s maid of honor at our wedding.”
Kitty smiled happily. “Have you guys been talking about marriage?”
“No,” Nick sat down at his desk. “But, we can’t rule out the possibility.”
“That would be awesome!” Madison clapped her hands together. “Nick and I could go to a female strip club to watch the women shake their little butts while you guys go to a male strip club and watch the men shake their little buns of steel.”
“Yeah!” Nick shouted while he high-fived Madison.
We laughed. But when the moment passed, I was left feeling excited. I had never thought about marriage before, but as Nick stated, ‘we can’t rule it out the possibility.’ My heart skipped at the thought of marrying Nick. Can you imagine that? Me? John Hawking? That sounded a billion times cooler than Ames. I loved the way John Hawking sounded. I recited “John Hawking” around my head for a few seconds. It made me extremely happy.
Suddenly, Mrs. Arzu walked into the room. “Good morning class! Welcome to another exciting school year!” Everyone cheered. She motioned for us to settle down. “Now, everyone,” she went on, “I’m so glad to see you all in my class. I look forward to discussing fine literature with each and every one of you.” The class cheered again. Mrs. Arzu was obviously popular and known for her spirit-rousing speeches. I knew that from several students who took her class the year before. “So,” she said, smiling, “Let’s put the past behind us and move on with our―”
A tiny knock on the classroom door got our attention. Mrs. Arzu went to the door and stepped out. She returned holding a note. As she read it, she addressed the entire class. “It seems that we’ve got a new student this year, transferring from Orange County, California.” Mrs. Arzu ushered someone into the room. “Emily Roberts, welcome to Elite High!”
I pulled in a breath. Emily was the same girl that I met at the movie rental store the previous Friday. She smiled and examined everyone in the room. Her eyes immediately rested on Nick. She waved at him and Nick smiled happily. He was actually beaming! Did they know each other from somewhere? It sure seemed that way.

“I’m getting married.”
Those were the first words out of my dad’s mouth as he parked our Escalade in front of Elite High.
I immediately turned to him. Now I knew why he’d had that apprehensive look on his face all week. Why he found it hard to look me in the eyes without seeming like he was about to cry. “What? I didn’t even know you were dating!”
He combed a shaky hand through his short brown hair. He looked so much like me, or I looked like him. He had always been so proud that I was his spitting image. “I know. I didn’t want to say anything until I knew it was serious.”
His honey brown eyes looked weary. I immediately searched them for the truth since they had never lied to me before. For a few seconds I found them hard to read, but when I did, they confirmed that he had found someone new. He was moving on and leaving my mother’s memory behind. Soon, there would be nothing left of her in our house and our hearts. A stranger sneaked in in the middle of the night and took her place without my consent. That usurper meant nothing good for us. “James—”
“Who is she?” I wanted to know the name of the woman I was going to loathe for the rest of my life. When he remained silent, I asked again. “Who is she?”
“Olivia Jones, my secretary.”
“How cliché.” I stormed out of the car and ran toward the main entrance of Elite High.
“James!” I heard Dad call.
I ignored him. All I wanted was to forget what he had just told me. I took a deep breath and looked around for my best friend, Madeline, but she was nowhere to be found. The hallway was bustling with students, heading to class or standing around in tiny cliques, gossiping about last year’s prom. My former tutor, John Ames, and his boyfriend, Nick Hawking, aka Nick Wild Hawk, had made that night unforgettable for everyone who had attended that night. And even those who hadn’t, for that matter.
