I saw his eyes, he saw mine yet I was so embarrassed. Anyway, we received our test results.
Teacher: good job Sheila!
Well I guess it's good enough
Teacher: "Eric top of the class!"
What! Wait! What! How did he
Teacher: "Eric you've really been on top form, I am very happy with your performance recently
Especially considering your mechanics skills!"
A fucking 95 what the fuck. I can't. It's not a competition but he managed to surpass me in the space of a few weeks. How hard did he study, how much work did he go through
Eric: "thank you miss but Sheila helped me out a lot, she deserves extra credit"
No miss he did basically everything by himself, I was just making sure he got the content"
Classmate: "awww get a room you two"
e, however, do not enjoy getting laughed at
Teacher: "well whatever you two do, keep doing it"
Eric was also highest in-shop work, so good that he was actually being offered a scholarship, all he needed was a good physics score basically a B
I was now being teased as Eric's side chick at school
Rumours that the bad boy had forced me to help him and that he had a biker girlfriend had flown through the school that even I knew about it.
I was about to end high school and soon I'd be done, I'd leave home and never return
I mean I could have left long back but I was planning on taking my university tuition money and using it as funding for wherever I move to.
On the final day of school and I leave my physics submission.
Eric walks in with what I assume is a working combustion engine, I wanna walk out but he has to demonstrate it working, I watch alongside my physics professor as he adds the necessary fuel.
Eric repeatedly pulls a cord but the engine only vibrates
Eric: "I don't understand it was working this morning"
Teacher: "Eric if it doesn't work I can only award you a C"
Eric pulls the cord for several minutes, visibly sweating, I can see his biceps stretch in his shirt, he had worn a long sleeve formal shirt with a tie but well it was covered in sweat by now.
I was silently watching Eric, he seemed really frustrated.
He had seemingly done it, saved himself, I mean he had a working Combustion engine, I mean my working weight scale had nothing on this, it works and he gets an instant A*
But if it doesn't work then the prof can only award so much, I had thought about doing something like this for my project but I neither have the equipment.
Time, not strength to put everything together
Looking at it I thought about why the thing would suddenly stop working, I mean fuel being combusted to create energy used to pump turbines inside cylinders
Sheila: "Eric did any of the parts you got have some rust"
Eric: "well new parts cost a lot of money so"
Sheila: "Do you have any oil"
Eric: "yeah in my car, but I don't think it will"
Sheila: "quickly go get it"
So Alex probably used low-grade fuel, that combined with old parts would not be enough to force a stall.
He moved it from his home to the blistering cold outside then the science lab is a very cool 17 degrees. In any case, it needs lubrication, nd ask him to try again
He pulls and the engine has a loud roar, it's an old muscle car engine,
Sheila: "It works"
Eric: "yeah it does"
Sheila: "well Good job"
Teacher: "well Mr Daley, it seems you've done well, this achievement deserves an A but since you had help you get a B"
Eric: "that's good enough for me Sir"
Teacher "well done"
Sheila: "okay I'll see you around Eric"
Eric: "wait you helped me out again, can I at least take you home, it's so cold outside"
Sheila; "no !"
I make my way out, I'm not gonna allow what I know will happen to happen, I can't be in love, I need to leave soon.
As I begin my walk, the freeze is real, it's close to December and the snow is already falling, very few places had heating or electronic heating,
even though I had a large house I myself was also lacking some form of heating. Eric pulls up next to me in Chevrolet, it's not his car, it's his moms, and she lets him use it
Eric: "Sheila come on, get in"
e gets out of the car and walks towards me
Sheila: "getaway, from me! No, stay back"
In my head "please please come closer, please just come to me"
Eric holds me and picks me up
Sheila: "what are you doing?"
I'm thrown into the car and he closes the door
He gets in and starts driving
Eric: "I have no idea why you won't let anyone help you"
Sheila: "because I don't need your help"
Eric: "yes you do, everyone needs help"
Sheila: "yeah I'm well within my rights to refuse your assistance, stop the car and let me go"
Eric: "When we get to your house"
Sheila: "no let me get out"
I reach forward and try to pull him away from the steering wheel
Eric: "Sheila stop, what's gotten into you?"
Sheila: "let me go, let me go, let me go or I'll scream"
Eric: "no you won't"
I take a deep breath and make the loudest shriek I possibly can, Eric stop the car reaches back and covers my mouth
Eric: "listen to me, and you listen good, I'm not letting you walk in the snow,
you get me so you can either sit quietly or I can tie you up gag you and make sure you don't wake up when you get there"
I am quiet, just really frightening when Eric gets like this
Eric: "so are you gonna behave or not"
Eric slowly lets go of my mouth and turns to start driving. I sit up and just sit there, I am still really afraid of Eric, but I'm hoping he won't lose it like last time.
I guess the near-death experience is what makes me feel so connected to this guy. Maybe that's why, or the many hours we spent doing schoolwork together, I'm just unable to understand.
Eric: "you know I get why you wanna leave"
Sheila: "how did you know?"
Eric: "because I'd do the same too, disappear, a town which will always see me as a psycho"
Sheila: "you don't know anything about me"
Eric: "that maybe be so, but I do know what it's liked to be judged, and forgotten, to have people turn on you, without remorse, you're not the only one suffering"
I didn't think about that
We after a 25 min drive get home, the road takes just as long as a walk because there are shortcuts on foot
Eric: "sorry I had to force you to get a ride, just wanted to be useful for once"
Sheila: "yeah whatever"
As I walk into my house I know he probably won't leave until I enter
Like the gentlemen he is
Sheila: "Ummm Eric"
I don't even turn around to speak to him
Sheila: "do you like me"
Eric: "well I don't hate you, and I hate everyone"
Sheila: "could you come inside and you know Ummm we could maybe watch a movie or hangout"
Eric: "sure I guess I can stay"
He locks his car and walks in
Sheila: "make yourself comfortable"
Mom: "Well Girls that's how I met your dad"
Bridgette: "wait what, what did you do with him"
Mandy: "yeah Mrs Daley what happened"
Mom: "I'll tell you later, for now, you girls need to go eat"
Mandy: "I bet I know what happened"
She walks closer to her
Mandy: "you sat on his lap like this"
She placed her large ass on moms lap
Bridgette: "yeah and then Daddy put his hands-on mommy's big boobs"
Imagine how petite she was with her large breasts as a teen
Mom: "well these actually kept growing after high school, they were no bigger than Mandy when we started dating and they got even bigger when I had you, Bridgette".....
An awkward silence fills the room........,...
Mom: "woo that's enough for one day, your father is probably waiting for me downstairs, and I need to"
She quickly lifts Mandy off and runs out
Mandy: "ha ha ha"
Bridgette: "the look on her face though! Embarrassed with the conversation"
