((Desiree Beck Start))

Desiree hates her school. She hates this math class. She hates her classmates. She hates Mr. Terrance's incompetence.

But most of all she hates the gum under the table she accidently touched with her hand.

As she disgustedly rubbed her hand against her jeans, she reminded herself that soon she would leave this hellhole. Soon.

After she looked at her hand to see that it was dry she looked back to the front to listen to the boring voice of Terrance.

Probability calculations.

eZ as usual.

Thought it felt like she was the only one paying attention to it. Still looking forward Desiree slighty looked around to see what all these other fuckers were up to.

((Violet Quinn - Start))

Maths was still a difficult subject to Violet Quinn.

She wasn't going to lie to herself. She did always pay attention to the lessons she was taught but for some reason she found herself struggling to cope with it. She was good at her other classes so she would at least have a weakness. And it just turned out that that was Maths. It wasn't as if she hated it. She actually had a very neutral feeling towards Maths. No love/hate relationship.

She was started to lose a bit of focus on Mr. Terrance's words that were coming out of his mouth. She always found it easier to pay attention to Maths when her tutor was teaching her over the weekends. Not that she didn't want to get better at this, she really did. However, she preferred one-on-one sessions. They made her feel more at ease and relaxed.

Her eyes suddenly wandered onto her other classmates, wondering what was on their minds right now. Did they want to escape? Did they want to learn?

Who knows. Violet wasn't going to guess.

Someone in the classroom coincidentally looked at her.

Desiree looked at Violet looking at her looking at her looking at her looking at her.

It was awkward.

Desiree stopped looking at Violet. Broke the eye contact.

But then looked back at Violet to look if she still looked or if she looked away. Desiree didn't know much about Violet other than she was a goth. And goths are weird people in general.

Violet hadn't meant to look at Desiree. She honestly thought that she would be the only one to be glancing around the classroom. She didn't even know why she continued to stare at the girl who was staring back at her. It was a bit awkward for her. So she was glad when Desiree was the one to break eye contact with her first.

Violet looked back towards Mr. Terrance. Trying to concentrate on the lesson. But for some reason, she couldn't. Desiree was suddenly on her mind. She wondered if the other girl was looking at her again. It was an odd thought.

She did not look back at Desiree. She fiddled in her pen in her left hand. She was getting distracted. Even if she didn't want to be distracted by someone staring at her.

Desiree watched Violet writing down stuff for herself.

She continued looking at Violet. Then she decided to look back forward. Then she looked back at the girl again.

"Dr. Terrance, please contact the office... Dr. Terrance, please contact the office."

Oh, thank the Lord. An interruption. Connor wasn't going to be able to stay conscious much longer if he had to listen to the math teacher's droning buzz.

((Connor Lorenzen continued from Hell You Talmbout))

Mumbling instructions to keep working on a few pages out of the math textbook, Dr. Terrance quickly checked his phone, grumbled something to himself, and quickly excused himself from the room, leaving a classroom full of mostly relieved seniors behind him.

Rubbing his eyes at the interruption, Connor Lorenzen sighed with relief. Mathematics was actually a particularly strong subject for him, and so it was often within math class that he found himself zoning out, already well-versed in the material the teacher was covering. His tutors over the years had been so much more engaging, so much more dynamic, and Dr. Terrance by comparison... wasn't.

As the classroom naturally started to stir, left to their own devices, Connor glanced around the room. At least a few other students seemed to be coming to life, the math teacher's spell having been broken - at least temporarily. Stretching his arms and hearing a soft pop from some of his joints, he exhaled with relief. There wasn't really anyone of particular note sitting around him, but the last thing he felt like doing was burying his head in his phone until Dr. Terrance got back, so conversation seemed like the way to go.

There were a couple of girls who seemed like perfect victims sitting nearby him, so he leaned back in his chair and looked at the two of them. They seemed to be staring at one another, saying nothing.

Bizarre.

"You know, if y'all wanted to have a good ol' fashioned staring contest I'd be more than happy to serve as the judge."

He flashed a smile at the two girls. Always the smile, practiced but perfected. Kind but sly.

Ladies loved the smile.

"You know if you aren't careful Connor, Madison might think you're flirting with other girls and lose her shit. Nobody wants that."

((Lukas Nielson: Start))

A dry voice came from the boy behind Connor's seat, a bored look on his face as he surveyed the scene before him. Math was always a boring class for Lukas. Words held infinite possibilities and were open to many different interpretations. Numbers were inflexible and lifeless. There was only one answer most of the time and the formulaic steps he needed to take provided no stimulation for him. It didn't help that the teacher was the equivalent of white noise either.

He had hoped to spend some time working on his next epic in his journal when Dr Terrance left but instead was immediately compelled to butt in the conversation in front of him. Partly because he legitimately didn't want Madison to have one of her temper tantrums that she was oh so infamous for and could see the potential train crash coming from a mile away. He also just felt satisfaction in completely shutting down Connor, who seemed to be doing his best to throw his charm at anything that moved.

Maybe he was being a bit too harsh on him. While others in his social group treated him with general disdain and went out of his way to make his life miserable, Connor mostly just ignored him, which Lukas obviously preferred. That didn't mean he liked the guy, far from it. Mere association alone was enough for him to develop a healthy weariness for him as he certainly didn't do anything to make his life easier even though he was in a perfectly good position to do so. Plus, he dated Madison, and anyone who was able to date Madison set off warning bells in his mind.

He shot Connor a small smirk before turning his attention to Violet and the other girl. He gave a warmer smile to Violet, waving at her while lightly tapping on his journal.

"I guess we're stuck here until Dr Terrance gets back. Hopefully, he'll be out for the rest of class. I'm not sure how much of his droning I'd be able to take today. You guys aren't planning on doing the task he set us, right?"

Well obviously they wouldn't do the random pages he set them, but he wanted to facilitate at least some conversation that wasn't about awkward staring. His eyes instinctively fell towards Violet, her striking fashion and makeup Lukas found aesthetically pleasing. He raised his eyebrows slightly, trying to indicate her to pick up the conversation. He'd rather not be left hanging dry.

Violet stopped what she had been doing and all she could do was now stare at Connor. She knew him. He was an okay guy. But his girlfriend was another story. Violet always tried to avoid the other girl with good reason. Violet really didn't want to deal with that kind of drama. She wondered why Connor was with Madison. But she never asked. Maybe their relationship didn't make sense to her but maybe it did to them. Besides, she was an outsider and their relationship was none of her business.

"Uh..... Thanks, Connor?" She raised an eyebrow and give him a disapproving frown. "....I'm not very good at staring contests. So, I have to pass on that."

Then Lukas spoke up. Violet's eyes widened a little in surprise. Flirting? Connor? With her? She didn't know what to think about that. She wasn't even interested in boys. But she wasn't going to say anything to embarrass Connor. As long as the flirting from him was harmless, she had no problem with it.

Lukas was talking to her about the task. Oh, he wanted her to continue the conversation. Did he not know that she didn't like to talk a lot? She preferred to be more of a listener than a speaker. Still, she didn't want to come off as rude for saying nothing to him.

"No, not really."

Great. She was very good at this.

"I mean.... Who really likes a robot who drones on and on all day?" Violet felt herself cringing as soon as she said that, her face was getting red and she stared at the paper in front of her. She started to scrabble some doodles on it to distract herself and from embarrassment.

Desiree rolled her eyes at Connor's comment but then smiled friendly to him as a respond to his nice smug arrogant smile he showed. But in her head she kept rolling her eyes. Jerk.

That's who Connor was. Connor seemed like an alright guy, always charming. He was one of the better ones in maths as well and was able to talk better than her about math. But he's still a jerk. Makes eye-roll worthy lines. Dates Madison. Madison, known for dating jerks. That's who he was.

Suddenly another male voice intruded the conversation. Lukas, who was this weird kid infamous for his mother. She felt sorry for him, her parents were awful, but she simply couldn't imagine living the life of Lukas Nielson even a day. Well, a day in the shoes of Lukas Nielson would be interesting. It has to be, obviously, with being the son of a celeb. Let's say a year. Nah, that's too much. A month. A month is awful enough, she'd imagine. Desiree would not want to live the life of Lukas Nielson over 29 days!

She smiled at his verbal attack on Connor. She didn't comment on his comment about the task, however. Normally she would do the task, but since now she had the opportunity...or rather was forced to chat with her classmates, she couldn't say no and just do the task and ignore them. So she boredly simply shook her head in response to whether she would be up for doing a task Terrance himself didn't give a damn about.

Then Violet babbled something about robots and drones.

Desiree looked at Violet and smirked at her embarrassing comment in a friendly way without saying anything. Inwardly she rolled her eyes. Inwardly she was confused by Violet's nonsensical comparison. Inwardly she wanted Terrance to come back as soon as possible.

There were things one could always count on in life. Death was one, Taxes another. The next, Connor Lorenzen mused as he slightly raised an eyebrow, was Lukas Nielson sporting a holier-than-thou attitude. He wasn't a terrible guy, but Connor never really found much of an excuse to talk to him. The whole "dominatrix mother" thing gave him a reputation, but the only time Lukas' name ever passed through his mind was usually when Wyatt or someone was making him the butt of a joke he'd never hear about.

Dominatrix. Wyatt. Butt. There was a joke in there somewhere, but he was way better than that.

Turning away from the girls for a moment to face the handsome senior, Connor couldn't help but concede that he did have a point. Madison had gone off on him before for purported flirting with other girls, but he'd always seen it as southern charm. Of course, he didn't want to have to have that particular fight with her again. Dear Lord, no. He kept the smile on for Lukas, but it was more conspiratorial than charming.

"Aww, come on now Lukas. I'm just being friendly with y'all. A staring contest might be more interesting than Dr. Terrance today, anyhow."

A twinkle flashed in his eyes.

"Besides... if Madison were to think I was flirting with these fine ladies, y'all know who I'd tell her put me up to it."

Connor winked at Lukas and shot a finger-gun at him. It was a genial gesture, but as he did it and laughed, he shot Lukas a knowing glance. He wasn't stupid - he knew exactly what kind of a reputation his girlfriend carried around school, and it wasn't one of being sweet and quiet.

Though he'd seen that side of her.

Turning back to the girls as the one stumbled over a reply and said something about the banality of math class (and by extension, Dr. Terrance), Connor found himself nodding and agreeing with her. She was blushing, and he couldn't help but wonder if he'd missed something. The other girl had said nothing but smirk at the comment. Weird.

This was still better than listening to Terrance, though.

"Y'know, I half expect him to put himself to sleep sometimes. We'll just look up and he'll be leaning against the whiteboard." Connor glanced down at his textbook. "This is just busy-work anyhow. Y'all know he assigned the same thing last week, right? Or at least, the pages right before it."

Math being a particular strength of his, Connor had indeed done the assigned work the week prior, but had then worked ahead a little bit, hoping to buy himself a bit of extra time before the next week's football game. Besides, it never hurt to be prepared.
