"BEEP!!!BEEP!!!BEEP!!!"......rings the alarm clock as if a million speakers are echoing its sound.
"Ugh,this fucking alarm it's only 630am....Geez 5 more minutes"; I murmur to myself half asleep as I click the snooze button and proceed to keep sleeping.
"BEEP!!...BEEP"...sounds the alarm again making the sound echo in my head as I drowsily wake up seeking the gratification of 5 more minutes from the snooze button and coming to a surprise .
"What the F*@k....How can it be 715am already"I jump out of bed like a maniac knowing I'll hear shit from mom for being late on the first day back to school of my senior year.
As I rush half naked in my room seeking clothes; that I failed to prepare the night before like a good girl...but let's be real, was I ever going to even bother doing it?...I answer my self laughing "Hell nah".I find a pair of jeans and one of my favorite shirts representing my school's rugby team....THE HONEY-BADGERS . What better animal to represent my team than that....because we all know honey badgers are fearless and don't give a F#$k.I laugh at my own thoughts like an idiot.No need to fix my hair and it's at this moment I thank God for curly hair.
Suddenly I hear the voice of my mother..."TANE!!!!...I HOPE FOR YOUR SAKE YOU LEFT 10 MINUTES AGO".
I think to myself...shit who was the idiot who created the snooze button because as much as I would like to hate them I can't because I can't live without it.I try to think of an excuse...but I am blank.I face the truth..."NO MOM!!!....I overslept",I say knowing very well she's gonna be pissed.
"REALLY!!!!"....I hear back from her as I am heading down the stairs rushing to leave.
"OMG!!!look at the time....that's it! you need to have better responsibilities, you are 17 already and I can't be babying you anymore"...she says in a disappointing matter.
"Bye mom,I know it... won't happen again I swear...I love you", I rush out avoiding the lecture that was to come if I had stayed behind listening to her.
I hop on my motorcycle, the love of my life a Ducati Scrambler red with nice black accents.Mom and Dad gave it to me last year after taking my Rugby team to victory.I must say there is something about riding a motorcycle that simply melts the world away...it is at that moment that is just you and your machine and there are no cares left in this world for you to worry about.As I rush through the streets of Maui,I enjoy the scenery...the sun...the ocean...the birds...and that winds that rushes with speed making me feel as if I am flying.
"Damn Dude"...says Kai.
Kai has been my best friend since I can remember,he is my ride or die friend.He is shorter than me but also has curly hair and brown eyes like me.We both really have that Pacific Islander look.A lot of people actually think we are related so he practically is my brother from another mother.
"I know I know...I over slept dude" I say in an annoyed voiced.
"Tell me about it man...we missed breakfast" he says rolling his eyes.
One thing about Kai he has been blessed with the metabolism of a champ because he can eat anything he wants and not gain a single pound while I just breath and boom there goes 10 pounds added to my body.
"Dude it'll be alright..besides I gotta follow the plan coach gave me for the incoming rugby season"...I say trying to have him forget about food for a minute.
"Where is Q?"I ask Kai.
Q is actually our third musketeer.She actually moved to the island 3 years ago from North Carolina and we met while in lunch.She is about my height a couple inches lower, has an amazing well kept afro and amazing brown skin and is gullible as hell.Yet,we love her and me and Kai have appointed her as our sister.
"I don't know...she texted me that she was going to be here soon"...says Kai looking around trying to find her.
"YOU GUYS!!!!"....says Q running towards us.
"Q!!!!!"me and Kai say simultaneously.
"OMG...you guys is our senior year"says Q as she hugs me and Kai at the same time.Those hugs that feel more suffocating than an actual hug.
"We missed you!" me and Kai say struggling from the bear hug we are receiving
"Me too..California wasn't as fun without you guys"...she says,finally releasing us.
"RIIIINNNNNNNGGGGGGGG!!!!!!RRRRINNNNNNGGGGGG!!!"...sounds the school bell letting everyone know is time to go to class.
"UGH!!! I can't believe we have math as our first class"..I say knowing it'll be hell since I hate math with a passion.
"Tell me about it...but at least we are together" says Kai trying to make me feel better.
As we walk into room 215 we notice the unfortunate luck of having Ms.Z as our math teacher.May I say Ms.Z has been rumored to make every student's life a living hell and she actually looks like one.May I say she is a nightmare in the form of a person, she is short with thick glasses, has a mole on her nose that if you look to close at it I swear it moves.She has a scratchy voice and a laugh like a witch.We refer to her as the wicked witch of the west.
"Fuck,bro not Ms.Z" I tell Q and Kai as I enter the class in annoyance.
"You have a problem Ms.Kalani",says Ms.Z in a sarcastic tone
"No Ms.Z",I say trying to fake the fact she heard me and avoiding staring at her mole.
Kai,Q and I take the last seats of the class like we have always done.That way we avoid any participation in class and at the same time socialize.As we take our seats I see her.
"Shit...this girl is with us",I say
"Who Tahiti?",asks Q
"Yes,dude I can't stand that girl",I say as I cross my arms
"Bro,how can you hate her if you don't even know her",says Kai in a laughing manner.
"I just do bro,havent you ever looked at someone and for a strange reason you just don't like them?..".I mean look at her she seems soooo goody two shoes and better than everyone", I tell him trying to make my point which is starting to seem it only makes sense to me.Tahiti is actually a tall,caramel color skin, fit body, black long hair, hazel eyes girl.Her parents are both doctors and are well known in the community.She is one of the top students in the school and although pretty which can't be denied she is all about her grades and maintaining her grades and family's good name.
"Tane that is crazy, she... is actually a sweet heart man, I had her for one of my classes last year",says Q with a perplexing face as if to trying to understand my bizarre thought of not liking that girl.
"I guess",I say trying to avoid prolonging the matter.
"Ms.Kalani..anything you would like to share from that amazing conversation you are having",ask Ms.Z with a demanding voice.
"No,not really",I say trying to avoid her.
"Well in that case, you can come closer to me",she says with a grin.
"WHAT THE HELL?!! WHY?"...I say in anger.
"Tone it down,I doubt your coach would like to know his star player is starting with the wrong foot in my class..now would he?",she says again as if receiving satisfaction from blackmailing me.
"No he wouldn't..Where do you want me to sit?",I say defeated and annoyed.
"Oh next to Tahiti",she says unknowingly of my dislike for the girl
I look at Kai and Q making a face as if saying "Just my luck"
"Great,what a fucking great way to start my senior year".I think to myself as I walk towards a seat I would trade my soul to not sit in.
