“Jack, pass me the popcorn please,”
I murmur quietly.

My left hand fumbles around on the couch beside me for the bowl, but my eyes are too lazy to leave the screen.

Besides, it’s a good film. Currently we’re watching ‘We Bought a Zoo’ because it’s a Saturday night, and I don’t
have a social life, so mom suggested we have a family game night in like the cliché happy family we are.

So far we’ve played Monopoly (I was the first person bankrupt, go figure) and a Wii game which Jack kept losing.

Needless to say, he went off in a tantrum and that was the end of our game night, so mom suggested a movie
instead.

“Jack. Pass it here, dude.” I huff and my eyes finally leave the TV for a second to see Jack glaring at me and clutching the popcorn bowl protectively, ignoring my
outstretched hand.

“Jack, why won’t you give it here?” I
frown. I try to reach for it, but he just dodges my hand.

Oh so that’s how he wants to play it then.


“Because you’re eating it all, I can’t catch up,”
He grumbles through a mouthful of popcorn. Mom shushes
us for interrupting the film with our voices, but to be honest, she’s texting Marie so she’s not exactly the ideal
viewer either.

I glare at him for a second, before I finally
lean forward to grab a handful.

I bring my hand back towards my mouth eagerly, but Jack bats it away so that
my popcorn flies all over the floor.

Mom gasps loudly, and I glance up with raised eyebrows. Wow, is a little bit

Loading...

of popcorn on the floor that big of a deal?


“Marie’s engaged Riley! She just texted me about it!”


Marie has a boyfriend?! Well, fiancé now. That’s funny, I don’t think Alec’s mentioned it before. “That’s great.” I
frown and reach for my phone, forgetting the popcorn scattered all over the floor and the film that only Jack is watching now.

I send a quick message to Alec.

Your mom has a fiancé?

He replies almost instantly.

Yeah, he’s a soldier. They just got engaged.
My eyebrows shoot up. Marie is dating a soldier?

“Did you know that Marie had a boyfriend?”
I ask mom, and
she nods quickly, her eyes not leaving the screen of her phone.

Okay, just me then. Why was I not keyed into
this? I didn’t realise she had a boyfriend.
Really? You’ve never mentioned him.
Alec’s message comes through a few seconds later.


Because he’s never around. She went to a big meet-up today, to see him for the first time in a month. He has to go back soon though.

His name is Matthew.

Riley: Go back where?


Alec:
Afghanistan. His parole ends a week before the date mom wants to have the wedding.

They’ve been together for years, but that’s why they wanted to leave the wedding until now.

So that he’s no longer on parole and he can support us better.

Wow, this is quite a lot to sink in. I wasn’t even aware Marie had a boyfriend, and soon enough Alec is going to have a step-dad? It’s amazing that Matthew’s in the army
though. He must be a nice guy, or Marie wouldn’t love him, I have faith in that.

That’s so nice 🙂 What’s he like? I reply to Alec.


Alec:
He’s great. I get on with him really well, and so does Millie. He’s good with kids, and mom’s infatuated with him. She deserves it though 🙂 x

Alec: I guess xx I grin at the two kisses that Alec sends, and a flurry of
butterflies ignite in my stomach. Two frigging x’s can make my day, how sad is that? I turn back to the family film with a small smile on my face, unable to restrain it
from breaking out on my lips. Now I’m not going to be able to watch the rest of this film without thinking of him.

Stupid Alec Ryder. He has to butt in his nose everywhere, doesn’t he?

Ugh.

“Junior assembly today, have you heard?”

Violet greets me at my locker just as I slam the door, surprising me a little.

Of course I’ve heard- practically
everyone is talking about it.

Apparently it has something to do with the end of our maths course, and the short
exam that we’ve had to take, but I don’t know what there is to talk about that.

I took the paper, did the coursework,
preferably I’d just like to forget all about it. But no, apparently that’s too much to ask for. “Yes, it does ring a
bell,”
I say, rolling my eyes at her enthusiasm.

Today she’s gone all out in the black clad outfit.

Biker boots, an AC/DC t-shirt and her hair newly dyed black with an electric blue stripe. “I like your look today,” I comment,
“Very rocky.”

“Thanks, but I have a bone to pick with you. Don’t try to sweet talk me, sugar puff.”
Her eyes narrow and she crosses her arms intimidatingly, “Okay so you did call
me about the details of Friday night, which is an achievement for you I must say. Sadly, you didn’t exactly go into depth, so I’m expecting every last juicy detail right
now. Are you cool with that? Good, I’m glad we got that clarified.”
She raises her eyebrows expectantly, looking me up and down to indicate for me to spill the gossip.


“What is there to know? We danced, we talked. It was nice.”

“Riley start talking or I swear I will torture you for information so bad that your teeth bleed.

Now I don’t want to do that, because I had a manicure yesterday, so do us both a favour and tell me everything.”
Her voice is
only ever so slightly teasing, the rest is all seriousness.

Frankly, I’m terrified, but she’d never do that to me.

She loves me too much.


“You’re such a drama queen,”
I roll my eyes, “Nothing happened.”

“And you, my dear, under-dramatize things so much!

Can’t you see that practically everyone you know is shipping Rilec? You need to feed the fandom or we will die!”
She puts a hand to her forehead dramatically, eyes wide with terror. “Feed me, Riley.” She says in a baby voice, “Feeeeeed mee”. I roll my eyes fondly at her.

The Rilec fandom? Well that obviously doesn’t exist because all of Alec’s fangirls hate my guts. Well it could exist
actually, but by the sounds of it there’s only two members: Violet and my mother.

That’s actually kind of sad. I might go and cry in a corner now.

“You’re particularly perky this morning,” I comment,
raising my eyebrows. I clutch my books to my chest and we begin our walk towards the hall for our big assembly.

Already junior students are filing in, herded by
teachers like a load of sheep.

This godforsaken affair lasts
for the entire first period, so although I’m kind of glad I’m missing physics, my butt is going to be aching at the end.

These assemblies are usually so boring that I think I’d prefer to take physics anyway, but none of us get a say in this.

Just as we round near the doors, Violet spots
Martin and he joins us, greeting Violet and offering me an awkward nod.

I think after those two lunchtimes, I terrify
him. Don’t blame him to be perfectly honest.
“I wonder what it’s going to be about,” Violet frowns as
we take our seats, “They don’t just hold a junior assembly for nothing. Heck, they want us to have an education right?”
