�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

Me: thanks

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?

Me: sure

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

Me: why?

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?

Me&Robbie: nooo

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

It read

�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

No doubt

_______________________________________

� Cat Valentine’s POV�

I’m happy

So happy

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

It’s funny

Me: hahahahaha

Everybody including the teacher turned to me

Me: what

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

Me: why?

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

Cat: okay

I watched as Jade moved closer to Beck and Beck began to move backwards

Oh no!

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

Jade: what!

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

Beck: thanks

I smiled.

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

�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!

Tori: what?

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?

Me: no

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

Me: dad?

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 �

Me: fine.

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

Me: daddy…

He still ignored me

I laughed and pushed him. He laughed too

Dad: go and shower. You’re so sweaty…

Me: ewww.

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

I gasped

So I’m going to kiss Tori?
