School boys (with Daniel and Cody)
love at first bite. (GET IT CUZ HE IS A BAKER HAHAHAHAHAAH)
Daniel scribbled his notes in class. “Nothing’s right.” He whispered to himself, he took a long pause of thinking. “My life’s a wreck…” Daniel looked down to his scribbled drawings and notes and sighed deeply, only to be interrupted by the screaming of the English teacher. “Daniel!! If you don’t stop drawing I will have to take that notebook off of you! Am I understood?” She yelled in front of the whole class. “But miss I have a note for my-“ “For the last time Daniel your problems at home don’t need to affect your school work and your problems don’t need to make you draw!” She grabbed the notebook and put it on her desk. “I know it may be hard but- CODY!! FOR GOD’S SAKE STOP THROWING JELLY BEANS AT MY STUDENTS OR I WILL HAVE YOU OUT!!” Miss looked around for some reason but noticed Daniel in front of her and had an idea.
“In fact Cody, you need to calm down, and Daniel since you need to focus on your work which Cody will help you with: I will move you two. Cody! Swap with Jessica!”
Cody, a long blonde-haired, buff and perfect cool kid, sat down next to the scruffy black-haired loser who grabbed a pencil and started working. They both disliked this. Daniel ignored the what-he-calls “popular boy” next to him. “So you understand it?” Cody asked, not a care in the world. “Yes.” “Then why didn’t you do it before?” “I don’t know Cody, why were you throwing sweets at people?!” “Banter.” “Banter my ass!-“ “No thanks.” “You are just being a hypocri- … Eww.” Cody laughed really weirdly.
“Jeez, calm down.” Cody calmed down and threw some more sweets. “Ou ant oun? (you want one?)” Cody asked Daniel with a mouth full of sweets. “No, I don’t want to risk the trouble.” “Trouble? I’m handing you sweets in class are you crazy?!” Daniel was tired and didn’t need… This. “Look I just want to get on with my work.”
“OKAY CLASS! Look at the board. Now judging by this diagram, what do you think Angelina is feeling for Darren in paragraph two? Urrrrmmm Daniel!”
‘Oh for f**ks sake.’ He thought.
“Well it seems like she cares about him a lot to trust him with her jewellery box, though it could be a meta-“ “okay Daniel that’s enough, now Cody-“ Cody was laughing at the pure rejection of poor Daniel, he was laughing so hard but sucked it up to not get in trouble. “- what are your thoughts?” Cody didn’t know, he didn’t read it. “Yeah well… she BARE trusts him with all da gold and pearls n stuff yeah.”
“…… Good job!” “WHAT?!” Daniel yelled, he didn’t mean to, it just slipped out and Cody burst out laughing. “DANIEL OUTSIDE!” “I DON’T EVEN DESERVE IT!!” “YOU WANT ME TO CALL THE ALERT?” Daniel sighed and threw his book across the classroom then walked out slamming the door so hard that it created several bleeding ears and echoes. Cody was laughing too. To be honest he doesn’t even know why he is laughing so hard. Maybe this kid he had never met before has an effect on him? Who knows, he don’t.

It had been a few weeks now since they had been sitting together, for some reason the teachers think they are either best friends or better next to each other which ends up not working. They always fight about their own opinions or about something stupid and/or laugh and talk. It had been quite some time and they had gotten to know each other.
Daniel found out that Cody loves sports and loves music and he is rich, but he is a classic popular: judgemental, wants to start drama and follows the crowd.
Cody found out that Daniel likes to draw, his family own a bakery and for some reason he doesn’t want friends. But Cody feels like he can change that. It would make him feel good to give another person happiness (or so he thought).
Cody saw Daniel in the canteen line, they were next to each other and were there for a while because the line was so long. “Hay buddy.” Cody joked. “We are not friends.” Daniel said bluntly. “Whoa, that hurts.” “Yeah well good.” Daniel seemed upset, he was just having a bad day and Cody was the last thing he needed right now. “C’mon you need to have friends mate, it’s just sad if you don’t.” “Yeah well maybe I am sad, maybe I’m depressed, MAYBE I DON’T WANT FRIENDS BECAUSE I WILL JUST HURT THEM IF I DO!!!” Daniel yelled. Everyone in the canteen line was looking at him, like he was on his period or something, or like he was crazy, or getting attention.
“Jeez calm down.” “See exactly!” “Wh-what?!” “Your kind are judgemental pricks that I don’t want to talk to! Because whenever I do! I feel like S**T!! You make everyone scared and feel horrible you know that?! You question every. SINGLE. LITTLE. THING that some people do like it is a crime! Look just don’t f**king talk to me. I don’t care if everyone in the school hates me for yelling at you, and if you or you get your friends to beat me up for simply telling you why I don’t want to talk to you then FINE. Because I am only here for a few more years before you leave my life forever…”
Daniel crossed his arms and looked away, plugging in his music and waiting for the line. Cody was shocked, it was a mix between anger, sadness, shock and guilt. “You call me rude, Christ!” Cody crossed his arms with these emotions and waited for the line too.

Cody was at his table with his friends. He just sat there thinking, thinking and thinking. Looking at the friends around him. ‘Am I really that bad?’ HE thought to himself. ‘But the stuff I do is normal isn’t it? The way I act is the same as any other teenager, I’m not THAT bad…
He remembered almost all the insults he had done and anything he had said to Daniel. …
-Cody looked at what Daniel was drawing, a handsome guy holding hands with another. “You’re gay?” Cody asked. “I… Don’t know. I don’t think I am…” Cody looked away, disgusted. “Get away from me queer boy.” Daniel hid his cheek (face) with his fist resting on his mouth. “Thanks.” Daniel said with a shaky voice.
-Cody was flicking small rubber bands around the class. “Do you guys have to do that?” Daniel asked. “Just because you are dull with no fun anywhere in your body, doesn’t mean we cannot have fun!”
-Cody and his friends were throwing rubbers across the room and one of them hid Daniel in the eye, Daniel rubbed his eye violently and with shaky hands, covered it. “WHAT THE F**K?!” “Christ gay boy don’t be so f**kin’ weak! (Looks to friends and points at Daniel) this loser. Haha!”
-“Your art is bare weird.”
-“Why do you not want friends, that’s weird, you’re a freak!”
-“So all you do is sit at home and bake?? What kind of man does that! Your so weird!!”

Cody looked at the ground, wanting to cry. ‘Why did nobody warn me?! I really am a bad person! I don’t deserve any of this. … Maybe I can redeem myself?’ Cody thought. After he ate his lunch he went to the library and picked out a few books and texted his mum. “How to be a good person, yes!” he started to read the book.
“Mum. Am I a bad person? Xx”
“Don’t be so stupid of course you’re not. Who made you think that? I will tell the school and have them removed! Xx”
“Nobody, I just got reminded that I might be a bad person. Xx”
“Talk to me properly when we get home xx”

Cody had a chat with his mum about it and his mother suggested apologising to Daniel, and talking to him about it which he was scared of doing. If his friends find him being all sappy, then they will judge him, which he had a big fear of. He hated the fact that people might judge him for nothing without having an explanation, or hating him. ‘Guess I’m a big hypocrite huh?’ he thought.
HE would talk to him in person but he thought he would text him first.
“Hay it’s Cody, I know you hate me but please I just want to explain something. I didn’t realise how mean I had been to you, I didn’t know I was a bad person and it terrifies me that something I did upsets you enough to not even want to see me! I really didn’t realise that I (and my friends) are so judgemental and mean without reason. I can only hope for your apology and maybe we can talk again??”
“I never expected you to say that. You of all people keep on surprising me. : ) But yeah sure as long as you know your mistakes.”
“Believe me it is eating me alive on what I said to you, and other people…”
“I didn’t know you were so sappy. XD”
“Oh shut up you.”
“Hold on how did you get my number?!?!??!”
“I am secretly part of government trying to apologise for our decisions XD Jokes.”
“Gtg chores and stuff.”
“But I swear to f**king god if this is a prank!!”
“Nah those days are over.”
“Okay but… It would be boring in class without you being a total goon.”
“Don’t call me G”
“Don’t call me goon :3”
“See you tomorrow!”
“We are cool aren’t we?”
“Yeah but I don’t really wanna hang out with anyone… Soz.”
“Okay, but WE WILL BE FRIENDS!!”
