Nothing Can Compare

Chapter Three

"But then what do you do with those two letters?" Zacky asked me the next week in Math.

"Nothing yet, we're just simplifying," I said writing down the next problem.

"But yesterday we were solving."

"We were simplifying and there weren’t any letters so we were able to solve them, 2a=b is as simplified as you can get."

"Fine..." he said a little quieter and started the next problem. I knew he was still confused. I stole a glance at him, like I had been for the past couple of days. Sadly the bell rang a couple seconds later. Yes, sadly. Algebra 3-4 was the one class I wished would never end. My teacher was awesome, the class was easy and I got to sit next to and talk to Zachary Baker.

"Thanks for helping me Taryn," Zacky said and hurried out of the class ready for lunch. I shoved my book in my bag and slung it around my shoulder walking out of the class slowly, unable to get him out of my head.

I walked towards where Rachael, Rebecca, Michael and I had sat all of out lunch breaks, on the grass in the middle of the commons area. I walked up to Michael and figured Rachael and Rebecca were getting us food. I dropped my bag by his and sat down.

"What's up?" Michael asked after I sighed lightly.

I shook my head and Rachael and Rebecca came over to us with Pop Tarts.

"Pop Tarts?" I asked.

"It's better than Mr. Potato chips here," Rachael said and eyes Michael.

"What?" Michael asked and took a bite out of his, I saw they were strawberry. I unwrapped mine slowly and took a small bite off the corner.

"What's up with you?" Rachael and Rebecca both asked me.

"I'm fine," I answered and took another small bite.

"Who's the guy?" Rebecca asked and my full attention went to my friends.

"What?" I asked.

"Come on your thinking about some guy," Rebecca said.

Rachael gasped and said, "She is! Who is he?"

"He's no one."

"It is a guy!" they both screeched and Michael laughed at them.

"Who?" he asked.

"Oh God not you too," I said.

"Like, oh my God, just tell us Taryn!" he said in a fake girl voice and made us all laugh. But my attention was diverted to that guy from the first day of school walking up to us while shaping a bottle coke, right behind Rachael. I quickly stood and pulled her up with me, away from him. He was easily a foot or two taller than us. Michael and Rebecca quickly stood up as well upon noticing him.

"Oh come on," he said to me in fake disappointment and then laughed. "So who's this guy Taryn, It's really intrigued me."

"I-I..." I stammered unable to respond to him.

"I-I," He mocked me before scowling, "You freshmen fucking suck."

"Hey, leave them alone!" I heard Zacky yell and I turned to see him and his two other friends, who had girls, no twins, under their arms. Both his friends looked shocked, the girls didn't.

"C'mon Zacky! These little bitches and I are just havin' fun!"

"What did I just tell you? Leave them be Rev," Zacky scolded him and walked over
to us.

"What the fuck is your problem man?" Rev asked Zacky, sounding a little pissed.

"Taryn's not a fucking bitch, you are. Leave them alone now, or I'll make you."

"I think Zack has a soft spot for some freshmen! Come on Rev, leave Zacky with his freshmen," one of the guys Zacky was with laughed. Zacky flipped him off and Rev glared at me before joining Zacky's other friends.

"Sorry about him, if he bothers you again just tell me okay?" he said, turning to me.

"Oh it's fine..." I said timidly, trailing off. It was weird talking to him outside of class.

"... I guess I'll see you in math tomorrow?" he asked, scratching the back of his head.


"Okay. Later Taryn," he smiled and chased his friends. I couldn’t help but smile too.

"What the hell was that?" Rebecca asked me. I didn't hear her because I was too busy watching Zacky.

"Taryn!" her twin yelled at me. I looked over at Rachael. "You like him don’t you?" she said with an evil grin.

"No, you can't! He's such a pompous jerk!" Rebecca said hastily. I looked at her skeptically.

"He just got rid of that guy for us," I said and sat back down.

"That doesn't matter, he probably wants to get into your pants or something," Rachael said and sat down in front of me with her sister. Michael rolled his eyes and sat down next to me.

"Why would anyone want into my pants?" I asked her.

"I don’t know, he probably playing some sick joke on you. You can't like him."

"Whatever I've got to go to class," I said as the bell rang and I hurriedly got up and left them.

"But we have the same French class!" Rachael yelled after me and I ignored her. They didn't have any proof about what they said about Zacky.


Wow... very judgemental friends she has!!!
