�Beck Oliver’s POV�
I walked to my dance class. We’re having a special tutorial today.
I stopped in the hallway and adjusted my sneakers �. Then I walked into the dance class. Everyone stopped talking and turned to me. It felt really awkward
I cleared my throat and moved in. I leaned on the wall with my hands in my pocket. Everyone began to talk within themselves and I caught some girls stealing glances at me
The teacher walked in
Teacher: hello, are we all ready??
Students : yes ma’am….
They disassociated and some girls stood close to me.
Teacher: okay now everyone, take your places in three rows and four columns
I stood in the front row and the first column from the right
The girls began to fight for a particular space which was beside me.
Teacher: girls! Why are you fighting?
Girl1: they want to take my position
Girl2: no, I came here first
Girl1: that’s a lie
Girl3: Miss Leonel, this is my place. I stood beside you first, right Beck?
Me: what? I don’t know who stood here first.
Then the boys began to laugh. The girls turned to them
Boy1: I knew this was about Beck. You just want to stand beside him
Boy2: you just wanna flirt with him
They began to laugh again
Girl2: that’s not true. You all know that I like being in the front row
Girl1: I too wanted to stay in the front because of…..
Teacher: Britney (girl1) we all know that you hate standing in front. So why are you suddenly interested today
The girl didn’t answer
I guess she’s been busted
I chuckled when she didn’t reply
Me: well since you all want to stay in the front row, then have your way. The three of you should stay then one boy would join you. That’s four rows
Teacher: yes, that’s exactly how it should be.
The girls frowned
Teacher: but Beck, you’re still staying in the front. And girls don’t have any other ideas, I want him in the front because I need to check his steps out
The girls smiled sheepishly
The boys laughed and punched me playfully
The teacher took her pearpad and turned on the music. We took our places and she stood in front
Teacher: now watch my first five steps then copy
She performed them and we watched.
She turned to us and we danced the steps
She nodded and asked us to repeat it. We did and she showed us another one
We kept dancing and it was time to dance individually.
I noticed that most eyes were on me while we were dancing together. I guess they all wanted to see if I could dance
And it was time to solo dance.
The first girl danced first and we curved behind her and cheered while she danced �
The two girls before me danced and it was my turn
They all became quiet as I stepped up. I smirked
�time to show who the dance king is
I began to dance with easy steps at first then I imputed some acrobatics. I began to dance like a pro that I am. As if I was a black talented dancer. Everybody began to cheer loudly. Including the teacher.
I showed them the steps I got from renowned dancers and from a particular movie ‘Step Up’.
The music stopped and the whole students screamed
The boys took me up and threw me here and there.
We laughed and sat down
Teacher: who knew Beck is so perfect at dancing. That was so tantalizing Beck
I smiled and the third girl stepped up. She winked at me and started to dance. A guy squatted beside me and whispered
Guy: she’s trying to impress you
Me: by dancing?
Guy: yeah, she wants you to like her steps
Me: how do you know?
Guy: haha, this is Hollywood Arts bruh. The girls here are b****es
I laughed and he patted my shoulder and stood up
I stood up too and joined in the cheering up.
About half an hour later, class was already over.
I was already out of breath so I headed outside. I was really soaked up and I needed to wash up.
Someone called me and I looked back.
It was the girl that winked at me
Girl: hi Beck
Me : hey
Girl: you must be tired after that hectic dance practice
She handed me a bottle of soda
I smiled and opened the cover. I gulped down half the content because it was so refreshing
Before I lowered it from my mouth, it poured slightly down my lips and to my chin.
She quickly moved closer and used her thumb to slowly wipe it off then she stared into my eyes as if she was gonna kiss me
I quickly withdrew and covered the bottle
�that charm won’t work on me
Me : thanks dear.
Girl: we’re having dance practice tomorrow again, you’ll be there right?
Girl: I’ll see you tomorrow then. Bye
She waved at me and turned to go. I smiled and walked towards the boys locker room.
I dropped my bag and went to shower
My dance mates were the only one in the locker room. I quickly changed into my extra clothes then hung my bag and walked out
I walked to the lobby and opened my locker, I took my history text book and headed towards history class
I noticed the students waiting with their phones in their hands.
I knew it was victorious.
I stood still and watched them enter.
Tori looked towards my direction and our eyes met, we smiled and she looked away.
Jade as usual, wasn’t smiling
Cat, as usual was smiling.
I laughed as I headed to history class
Robbie : Cat is so beautiful
Me: oh hey Rob, what’s up
Robbie : I’m fine
Rex: I’m not
Rex: Robbie didn’t take his bath today
The people we were walking past heard and laughed
Robbie : why did you say that?
Rex: because you left me at home yesterday
Robbie : I went to work
Rex: what work? How can a puppet like you get employed. You’ll mess everything up
Robbie : shut up!
I laughed and arranged my hair with my left hand
Me: why didn’t you take your bath?
Robbie : because I took a shower instead
Rex: that’s a lie
Robbie : Rex, you’re getting on my nerves
Rex: you mean I’ve not even gotten in your nerves since? Should I tell everyone that you have a crush on Cat?
Rex: I wont tell anyone because of Beck. He’s so handsome
I smiled and entered into the classroom.
�Tori Vega’s POV�
I shoved my front hair behind my ear and straightened my blue dress �. Cat and Jade were both sitting beside me. We were waiting for the history teacher.
He always comes to class late
I looked back and saw Beck sitting down. I gasped and quickly looked away
Jade looked back and saw him
Jade: Mr handsome is here
Cat: oh my gosh he’s so sweet
I didn’t talk, I didn’t even act as if I cared
The teacher entered and began to teach about ancient history of the Egyptian people and they mode of entertainment
For the first time in my own history, I’m not concentrated in class.
Even when Trina frustrates my life before I come to school, I still get focused when receiving lessons but now I’m not even hearing the teacher’s words now
I just hope he doesn’t ask me any question
I looked back and saw Beck’s face again.
He didn’t still see me
I looked at the teacher and forced myself to concentrate
�Beck Oliver’s POV�
I bent down to take my bag �that fell down. My eyes sighted three girls in front
Wow, I didn’t know they were here
I smiled and faced the teacher.
I looked at Tori, though I couldn’t see her face
Robbie passed a note to me
�do you have a crush on Tori? You’ve been staring at her
I chuckled and folded the note without replying him. I looked at Tori again and smiled then faced the teacher
I like her
� Cat Valentine’s POV�
My Nona has promised to buy me a huge unicorn because I’m going to help her babysit today
And I can’t wait to start my singing rehearsals today too
And I love this history class
Everybody including the teacher turned to me
Tori: why did you laugh?
Me: cause what the teacher said was funny
Teacher: I didn’t say anything funny
Jade : he only said we can jot down whatever he’s saying
Me: oh, I thought he said we can do whatever he’s saying. By being Egyptians
The class laughed, except Jade
Teacher: Cat Valentine to the back seat � and Beck Oliver to the front
Me: yay! I get relocated
I stood up and ran to the back, Beck stood up and I sat down. He winked and went to the front
I looked beside me and saw a boy with curly hair and glasses.
Oh he’s the puppet boy
Me: hi I’m Cat what’s your name?
He turned and looked at me in surprise
Boy: are you talking to me?
Puppet: Cat run for your life. Robbie is disaster
I screamed and began to hit the puppet with my school bag until it fell to the ground
Robbie : oh no! Rex are you okay?
He took it from the floor
Rex: she hit me with her bag!
Robbie : I know
Me: aaaaah.. It talks
Robbie : of course it does. It’s a talking puppet
Rex: I’m a he not it
Robbie : sorry, he’s a talking puppet
Teacher: it seems class today is already disorganized. We call it a day
He took his books and left.
Robbie too angrily left the class with his talking puppet
The students began to leave
Beck also made to leave but Jade stopped him and walked towards him
Tori’s face changed and I walked towards her and whispered
Me: Jade wants to ask Beck out
Tori : I know but I have to stop it
Tori : because he won’t be able to say no. He’ll be dead meat if he says no
Me: and what if he says yes
Tori : she’ll kill him when she finds out he’s not rich…… Oops…
She covered her mouth and I gasped
Me: he’s not rich. But why does he look like he’s rich?
She shrugged and looked at the both of them who were at the other side of the class
Me: I better tell Jade
�Tori Vega’s POV�
Me: no no no no
I pulled her back.
Me: if anyone should tell Jade, it’s me
I watched as Jade moved closer to Beck and Beck began to move backwards
She’s going to kiss him. That’s what she always does. If she asks you out, she’ll kiss you right then.
I rushed towards them and stood between them
Me : hey! Jade I have something to tell you
Jade : Tori, out!
Me: come on Jade, you need to know this
She rolled her eyes angrily
I sighed and looked at Beck. As if he knew what I was going to say. His eyes were pleading to hide it
I looked at Jade
Me: Beck….. Is not rich
Her eyes dropped
Me: he’s just an average boy with good looks. And you never date poor guys right?
I turned to Beck
Me: I’m sorry for saying you’re poor but that’s the most suitable word now. Forgive me
I turned to Jade again
Me: do you know he’s actually a waiter? The restaurant we went to yesterday, he works there. I saw him in uniform behind the counter
She frowned deeply and glared at Beck who began to move backwards
Jade: Beck! I’m going to rip your soul out
She stormed towards him and pushed me away
He wanted to run but she caught him and pinned him to the wall
Cat screamed and took her phone. Probably calling the ambulance. Beck will surely sleep on a hospital bed tonight
Jade held his throat with one hand and the other was pinning him down
He closed his eyes
I heard Jade chuckling. He opened his eyes slowly
Jade : you look cute when you’re scared.
She released him and arranged her top
Jade : I wont hurt you because I cherish your face. I don’t want injuries on it. But my policy still stands.
I sighed and held my chest. Cat was smiling
Jade : and if any girl tries to frustrate your life just call me, I’ll frustrate her soul and body
Beck cracked and I chuckled
She smirked and left the class
Beck : I’m alive
Me: hahahaha, yeah
Cat: yay! You’re alive
I moved to him and took his wristband from the floor. I gave it to him
Finally, Jade’s not gonna kill him
⭐Beck Oliver’s POV⭐
The last few minutes were the scariest of my life. Jade terrifies me so much
But I’m glad she knows who I am now. And she’s not going to force me to date her. And she was even going to kiss me before Tori intervened
Me: thanks Tori, I owe you one
Cat: can I use the restroom?
We looked at her
Tori: uhh, sure
Cat: Kay Kay
She left and I chuckled
Tori and I began to walk towards the door.
We were walking really close to each other and we weren’t talking
Me: uhm, we’ll see on Monday then.
Tori : maybe
I turned to her. There was a stain on her cheek. As if it was a marker or pen stain
Me: there’s something on your cheek.. I’ll get it
I used my thumb and wiped it up
Our faces were really close
For a second there I thought of kissing her
The urge came so strong and I found myself leaning down to her lips
Then we heard a bang from the front. We looked and it was a lady
Tori : Trina?
Tori walked to her and she folded her arms.
Tori: Trina why are you here?
Trina : excuse me Tori, this is my former school and I have the right to come her without questioning from my little sister
Tori : I know but… Just forget it.
She turned to me
Tori : Beck let’s….
The lady gasped loudly with her eyes widened
Trina: oh my gosh! �
She hurried towards me and stood right in front of me
Trina : oh my gosh!
I puzzled up my face. Tori’s was also confused
Trina : gosh, you’re so handsome. Are you a demigod???
She touched my face with her two hands. Each of the hands had two rings
I shifted back
Tori: Trina, behave yourself?
She turned to Tori
Trina : shut up and get out!
Trina : you heard me right. Get out
Tori: no I won’t
Trina : oh, she has guts now. Wow
Me: this is awkward
Trina : I’m sorry dear. Tori is trying to disrespect me.
Tori : no I’m not
She glared at Tori
Me: are you two sisters?
Tori : yes
I looked at the both of them. They had the same hair and looked alike a little
Me: I’ll excuse you both
Trina : no… Let’s just leave together
Me: excuse me, I have one more class to attend. Bye Tori. Bye Trina
I left the class and heaved a sigh
Me: I don’t like this Trina.
I met Andre in the hallway
Andre: here you are
Me : hey bro. Haven’t seen you today
Andre: yeah, I’ve been in the music class since. I was mixing some beats and all that for the upcoming play. That’s next week Friday
Me: oh, Cat told me about it
Andre: have you gotten a part in it?
Andre: you should meet Sichowitz. My favorite teacher
Me: you mean the baldheaded, crazy man
Andre: yeah that’s him
Me: okay, I will
Andre: I’m actually going to his class now. That’s acting class
Me: that’s where I’m also headed
Andre: then let’s head on together
I laughed and we walked together into his class
�Tori Vega’s POV�
I angrily walked into the house.
Trina really pissed me off.
I walked into the living room and saw my dad drinking
He looked up and saw me
Dad: Tori, my baby
He stood up and I ran and hugged him
Me: welcome back dad
Dad: thanks, how have you been?
I frowned and he frowned too
Dad: Trina right?
I didn’t reply
Dad: don’t worry, I’m here now okay. So how’s school?
I sat down and gulped down his glass of wine �
Dad: I hope it’s not too hectic for you?
Me: not really. I’m just glad you’re back home. So did you bring it?
He ignored me and poured himself another glass
He still ignored me
I laughed and pushed him. He laughed too
Dad: go and shower. You’re so sweaty…
I pushed him again and ran up to my room
I opened my door and saw a box on my bed. I quickly took it and it was the huge pearpad I asked for
It’s called a maxi pearpad.
I screamed and began to jump on my bed happily
Dad bought it for me.
I’m so happy
Me: I love you dad
⭐Beck Oliver’s POV⭐
I drove the car to school and parked in the parking lot.
I already resumed my duties as a driver and I dropped my boss at his beach house before coming here
I’ll pick him up by 2pm later.
I stepped out of the car�and beeped it.
Two girls were also stepping out of their car
They wowed at me and I winked at them before entering the school � building
I went straight to the theatre and the students were already gathered
Victorious was also present. Tori was really looking happy
I went through the script. I was giving the part of the male lead role. The teacher said it was because I was really handsome
It was then I figured out that Tori was the female lead role.
I went through the script and saw that there was a kissing scene at the end
So I’m going to kiss Tori?
To be continued
