Hi, again! Hope you enjoyed the weekend! I kind of went with a different point of view for this week, so I hope enjoy reading/ writing this week’s scene.
My entry: Nathan sat on a large boulder at the edge of the woods as his senor high school biology class wandered into the forest, identifying the shrubs and trees. He smirked enjoying the time off. He would ace the exam anyway, he always did.
He caught sight of Ben as he carried a pile of books on poisonous plants, spiders, insects, and snakes. On top, tucked under his chin, were a survival guide and a snake bit kit. Nerd alert, Nathan smile and placed his foot in front of Ben. Ben’s books and papers went flying from his hands as he collapsed into the leaf littered ground. Nathan laughed at the scene.
“Have a nice trip, Benny?” Nathan stood up, stepping onto Ben’s back and forcing his face into the dirt.
“Oh,” a stern voice growled, “would you leave him alone!”
Nathan looked at the willowy figure standing before him. Amber, his adversary, glared with her arms crossed.
Nathan stepped forward, “Why don’t you make me?”
“‘Why don’t you make me?’ Is that really the best you can do?” Amber snorted, shaking her head. “You know, Nathan, there are days were you are just the biggest idiot in the school.”
Nathan snapped. He grabbed her by the shoulders and forced her back into the trunk of a tree. Amber’s heart raced and her breathing became rapid. Nathan stared into her calm, cool eyes. He had struck others for less, but as he looked into her eyes he couldn’t bring himself to hurt her. Not Amber. He hated her, but she was also his one weakness. Somewhere, down in his heart, he loved her.
