The Opisite Effect Ch.1-3

Okay. Sorry I’m a slow writer and new at this. It took me a while to write the 3rd chapter to get the right idea going and I’m reposting the whole story because its all scrambled up so here are the first 3. I hope to post more sometime in the very near future.

CH 1

It’s good to have friends that you will stick to no matter what group you go in. Like my friend Janet, we stick together like glue. We’re both geeks/nerds and proud of it. We don’t go to the same schools though… but for sophomore year and the rest of high school I’m going to move by her and stay at her school. She gets bullied at her school, and Janet is always crying to me about it. I hate it and the people that are teasing her are the popular girls and guys. The guys tease her more than the girls, and I really wanted to do something about it… I’m not stupid, but when it comes to helping my best friend I have to go far into the deep to get these idiot popular guys straightened out, I hope it just doesn’t flip back onto me like karma or something… And if you didn’t know already my names Jasper Cord.

“Jasper! Come on! We’re leaving.” Mom yelled,
I yelled back, “I’m coming! One sec!”
I put my IPod Touch and my phone in my backpack and zipped up the bag. I looked around my empty room real fast to make sure nothing was left. Then I saw my friendship bracelet Janet got me caught in between the window. I ran over and lifted up the window and took the bracelet. I put it on my wrist while letting go of the window. I sprinted down the stairs with my backpack and duffel bag in both hands to the van where my mom was waiting impatiently. I jumped in and through my stuff in the back seats and slammed the door shut.

It was a quiet ride to my new house. I just kept watching the trees fall behind us as we drove, with my reflection in the window. I had those big green eyes behind my huge round glasses, and brown curly hair that always frustrated me. I didn’t need glasses; I just use them to match my best friend. It was a 30 minute drive until we got to our new white house. The house is pretty huge but there’s only me and my mom that will reside in it. And my mom is usually never home so it’s mostly just me in it alone. The house was nice and it is only 2 blocks away from Janet’s so we can walk to school together.
Two days later
I put on my blue sweatshirt and looked in the mirror, oops forgot my glasses. I went in my freshly colored blue bedroom with some random black swirls and picked up my glasses and put them on. I was already 5 minutes late to meet Janet at the intersection of our blocks. I took my backpack and sprinted to the meeting place.
Once I got there I went behind her and said with breath, “Heyyy”
Janet said, “Hello, Ms. Slowpoke”
“Sorry I’m late, my hair wasn’t being nice today…”
She laughed and said, “It’s alright just come on, walk faster and listen. Look the popular kids are probably going to tease you too so just walk fast to your locker and don’t listen, you hear me?”
“Sure, but that’s just letting them get to you. You can’t just ignore them your whole high school life! We’re supposed to enjoy high school not be scared of it! What if we secretly get them back without them even noticing? They’re too stupid to notice it, right?” I stopped for a second and looked at Janet. She wasn’t mad at the idea she was actually considering it.
Janet sighed and said, “At least you don’t kill anyone or get anyone in trouble I’m in, so what’s your plan this time?”
“Ok so today I’ll just study them and learn their nature. Tomorrow I’ll go to school without glasses, I’ll put a little makeup on and straighten my hair. I mean, I was a nobody last year and today I’ll be invisible, I can do it.”
Janet looked at me as if I was crazy, then started nodding her head and said, “This could work. You are pretty when you put on make up without glasses. What is your full plan though?”
“I’m just going to go out with one of them and break they’re heart.”
“Dude, they do things with girls, bad things, like the S E X thing. You’re pretty small too. They can easily get a hold on you…”
“I just won’t go in a room alone with them or anything.”
Janet went quiet for a minute and then gasped, “What if… you dated all of them at the same time secretly and then they start fighting eachother over you?!”
I started laughing, "That would be perfect! "
“Just don’t get too into your character and leave me.”
“Don’t worry, Janet. I won’t, I promise.”

That whole day no one said anything to me. I found out the popular guys and I’m going in tomorrow with nothing stopping me. I just have to get into my mom’s makeup. I found it under the bed, I just took out eyeliner, some shadow and lip gloss. That will have to do for now. I went over to my bed put the makeup under my pillow and fell asleep.
I woke up feeling pretty mischievous. Revenge is something common these days, I guess. I went to the mirror and slowly put on the makeup. It wasn’t that hard to apply, especially since I have a steady hand because I was in honors art at my old school.
I must say I looked good. I’m the average height for my age at 5’2 but I weigh 115 pounds. I ran downstairs and ate breakfast real fast and checked the mirror one last time. I wanted to put on my glasses for Janet, but I had to do my operation carefully and just right.
At school, I walked to my locker looking down at my feet. I’m not one to have much confidence no matter if I’m acting or not. I ran into a really bold person and stepped back a little bit. I looked up and saw Drake Canberra or victim number one. He was thin, tall and muscular ,all popular guys were, with his brown short hair and brown eyes that were slowly melting into me. I blushed and said, “Excuse me.”
Out of my peripheral vision I saw him follow me. I got to my locker and turned the dial 3 times to my locker combination. His locker was surprisingly right next to mine. I found that out yesterday. Drake opened his locker slowly. He looked at me and our eyes locked. I have him lured into my trap, or at least I hope I do.
Drake said with a smile, “So you’re the new girl here? Or am I just delusional?”
I put on a flirtatious laugh and said, “Both.” I slammed my locker and walked away to my next class, and of course he was still playing my game. Drake followed me, and walked right in front of me and stopped. He leaned on the wall with his hands in his pockets. This is the cool look for him, I guess.
Drake took out a piece of paper and a pen, wrote something down and gave me the paper. He started walking backward and said with a smile, “Call me.”
FV(Full View)
It was lunch time and all the popular guys sat at the table and started talking. James was sitting quietly looking at Jasper and then away. He was sad because Jasper dumped him the day before. James had bright blue eyes and dark skin that popped out his eyes.
Drake said to him, “What’s wrong , man, you look like you got dumped?”
James sighed and said, “I did by Jasper Cord…”
Jered said, “You were dating her? She doesn’t seem your type… I thought you liked the hot ones, not the cute types.”
Drake, Dan, and Gabriel gave him a weird look while James said, " I wanted to try someone new… We were dating secretly, because she didn’t want anyone to know for some weird reason…"
Drake said with obvious anger, “I’ve been dating Jasper secretly for a whole month… How long have you been?”
James composure went from sad to confused to angry in all one minute and said, “I’ve dated her for a month too… She’s been cheating on us?”
Gabriel finally spoke up, “Same here, but for 3 weeks.”
Dan was pissed off and said, “She asked me out yesterday and I said yes! What a-”
Drake said as calmly as possible, “Calm down. Look at who she’s sitting with… When all of you have been dating her did she ever say to start being nice to that loser Janet?” Everyone nodded, " I think she dated us all for some reason. Just act like nothing happened and find what’s up with her somehow, but don’t do anything yet…Revenge will come to her if we play our cards right, Got me?"
Everyone that went out with Jasper so far nodded and said together, “Yea.”

CH 3

JV(Jasper’s View)
I kept looking over at the jocks, and looking back at my friends. The guys were looking at me and then talking. Then looking again and kept talking. All of the guys I was dating kept looking back. It was a cycle that didn’t stop until lunch was over…

“Jasper! Helloooooo? You there?”

Janet was trying to get my attention while I was trapped in my thoughts. I finally looked up and said, “Yea?”

“Dude, you haven’t even touched your food… Eat something!”

“Oh… sorry. It’s just… The guys keep looking at me weirdly and smiling. I mean they usually smile at me, but not this way.”

I started considering that they found out about my plans, but then I reconsidered and decided that they were too stupid to figure out. I must admit that I don’t give people that much credit on what they know.
I looked at Janet, and she was looking at me with those huge blue eyes behind her glasses. She said, “Hey, want to hang out tonight? We have to talk in private about this stuff…” While she was saying that her eyes were following someone behind me. I slowly followed her back and saw Drake walking to my direction. I thought he was looking somewhere else, but he was looking right at me.

Drake stopped and kneeled by my chair, smirked at me and said, “Hey, Baby. So tonight I was going to have some friends over and have a movie night… I wanted to know if you’d like to join us?”

“Ummm… I don’t know. Someone already asked me to hang tonight… Sooo-”

Drake put his finger over my lips and cut me off saying, “Shhhhhh… Don’t worry. I bet your,” He looked at Janet, “friend can wait until tomorrow.”

I stopped breathing for a moment, lost in his tone of voice, loosing myself to Drake and his amazing melting eyes.

Drake kept staring at me waiting for a response. I realized this and looked at horrified Janet and then to him again. I fixed my composure and said, “Oh, yeah, sure, it sounds great. Uhh. Text me the time.”

I knew I sounded like an complete and mindless idiot. Drake smiled at me, and walked out of the cafeteria with his “pack” following.

Later on after school I was hanging out with Janet getting ready for my movie night with Drake and his friends. Janet was watching me apply more eyeliner and eye shadow in the bathroom and said,

“Drake had you like a puppy today. He was talking to you like one, and you were lost. I thought you were playing a game on him! Not him onto you!”

“Dude, okay… He got me for one second… but he never talked to me like that before, and well I guess I just fell for it, I guess…” My voice went slower and lighter by the end of the sentence. Janet was giving me the “are you serious look” while saying,
“BUT were you listening to his voice, he was manipulating you. He was speaking to you like a baby!” I moaned a little bit, and walked to my room and plopped down on my bed.
It was true, Drake spoke to me in a different way today. He took control of me. Tonight I can’t let him cast his spell and take all my hard work.

I took a deep breath and said, “Don’t worry those jerks are all going down. I promise I won’t get caught up into this huge web again.” That’s when we shook on it. Buzzzzzzzz. Buzzzzz. It’s my phone ringing. I went over and grabbed it, finding it was Drake’s message. My heart started pounding faster in my chest. I didn’t want to break my promise to Janet, but it wasn’t working out to well. I read the message out loud:
“Uhh, it’s Drake… He says ‘I’m coming now.’ Why doesn’t he ever ask me questions anymore?”
I can’t drive yet, but it would be nice if he asked anything. He just started after lunch was over. It’s like he’s trying to tell me what to do or something along those lines…

We talked a little bit and then the doorbell rang. I got up, picked up my bag, hesitated at my bedroom door and said, “Lock up the house when you leave, bye.”

Janet waved back as I went down the stairs. I slipped on my flats and opened the door, Finding Drake with his hands in his pockets, once again leaning on the side of the door looking into my eyes. My thoughts were clouded in dreams for a second until he stood up straight, took my hand, and closed the door for me. He was mostly pulling me to his car, until the realization kicked in that I should follow. I walked up to his car with him pulling the door open for me. I got in as he shut it gently. Drake walked around and got in. He looked at me and gave me a weird smile that comforted me.
It was odd and strange. Before I had everything under control, but now I’m melting under his reigns.
The drive to his house was very quiet. He didn’t talk like usual, he just drove and looked at me time to time and did his weird smirk.

After a while of awkward silence we got to his place. Drake parked the car in his driveway. I began opening my door to get out and he reached over and shut it. I looked at him and was so confused. Why would he close it when he was getting out anyway?
Drake got out of his side of the car and went to my door and opened it. I still didn’t get why he closed my door. I’m responsible enough to open it myself. Drake gave me a warm smile with his melting eyes and took my hand. I just stopped questioning him, he seemed different and I liked him that way. I wanted him to stay that way. I was mostly the “I’m not having a boyfriend until college type”, but I think that had changed.

We walked up to his door and he opened it slowly. Drake led me in as I followed in a complete daze. My mind was clouded until the worst things happened in 5 seconds that ruined all of my plans.
Drake closed the door as my jaw dropped. James, Dan, and Gabriel were all there in the living room sitting on the couches. Drake then spun me around to face him and kissed me. It was mind blowing. I instantly didn’t care for the 3 seconds that my whole plan was ruined. I didn’t care that I fell in love with the biggest jerk in the school. I just didn’t care anymore about anything. I just wanted to keep in this state of love.

Drake slowly pulled away as I opened my eyes. He had the most wicked smile on his face. It looked as if he had plans of his own that were moving well, while mine were failing. I went to a smile to a frown to nothing but a stare to the floor. I was going to cry, but I had to keep my face straight. I loved Drake and I broke my promise to Janet. Everything was going wrong.

Drake said something, but I was so trapped in my thoughts that all I heard was a mumble. I finally gripped what he was saying, “Jasper…. Hello?? Would you like a drink… Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, or Milk… Dr. Pepper, right?” I just shook my head while lightly putting my fingers to my lips that Drake just kissed. I looked at the other guys as Drake left to get my drink. They all were staring at me with weird smirks and a mischievous twinkle in all of their eyes.

James had a movie in his hands and waved it and said, “We’re watching Scream, sound good?” I just nodded my head a little as I walked to the empty couch I’d be sitting at with Drake. Everything was blown. I was so frustrated that I was sad. I just sank down into the couch while James set up the movie and Drake fix me a drink. Drake came in with two drinks. One in a glass and another that wasn’t. He sat on the couch and looked at me with a concerned look being cautious about giving me my drink. Drake said, “Are you okay?” I tried speaking but nothing came out but air. I just took the drink he offered and mumbled, “Fine… Fine…”

I stared glumly at the floor losing all hope while drinking my Dr. Pepper. I drank in the silence as Drake watched me. My thoughts were running so fast to think of an excuse but I never found the right one. Then I saw my drink getting pulled away from me, finding it was empty anyway. Drake said, “Do you want a refill?” I nodded my head once again because it was the only thing I could do at the time. I just couldn’t say anything or I would just start breaking down crying. I would just have to stay silent.

Something started vibrating on my thigh. I looked down tom find my bag on my lap with a slight glow of my phone. I went in my bag and checked who it was from. It was Janet’s text just asking how it was going. I just looked up finding everyone looking at James finally getting the Movie onto the movie main menu. I started texting that Drake kissed me and sent it real fast as Drake came in with a glass giving it to me. I sipped it and placed it lightly on the stand on the left of me.

Drake sat down on the couch once again. He looked at me longingly and sat Indian style on his couch side. Drake patted his thigh saying he wanted me to sit on his lap. I considered it as I looked fearfully at James, Dan, and Gabriel as they watched with weird, almost satisfied smiles.

Drake finally told me the truth, “Don’t worry… We know you’re dating all of us…” He paused and added, “We’re okay with it, there are just some strings attached. Please?” After he said that our eyes were locked. I was so shocked at what he said the next things were instincts that I would never even do before that day, but I did. So I crawled over one foot as he stretched out his legs letting me onto his lap.
My heart was pounding like crazy and it wouldn’t slow down. James started the movie as I silently cried in Drakes lap. Drake pulled me up a little into a weird cradle that I actually liked. It calmed me down until all was heard was a little sniffle. Drake was caressing me gently on my arms, hair, or face. I wouldn’t ever let anyone do that to me ever in my life but I felt defeated. I felt done…
I just wanted to show Drake my true colors. Unfortunately, If I showed him those then he’d vomit hatred on me.
I thought about what he said… Strings attached? I was a bit frightened but I it was probably just a you have to date all of us alone (shiver) once a week type of thing. Or maybe it might be something worse like if you break up with one of us then you break up with all. I couldn’t really think of any other types of strings that could be connected with something like this…

I was fully calmed down half way through the movie. I stopped thinking about my possible strings attached fate and just watched the movie. I hardly remember the Scream movie but the first time I watched it I jumped a thousand times. This time around I hoped I wouldn’t.
I felt Drakes hand lightly caressing my arm that tickled a little but I kind of liked it. I was into the movie and I knew a good get you out of your socks part was coming… I just didn’t know what was going to happen to me during it.
I watched it and the dude with the mask came out of nowhere and I didn’t jump physically but my insides did. It all happened so fast. I realized at that time I really had to use the bathroom because of all the Dr. Pepper I drank(which was the worst decision of my life). I thought some pee escaped, but more came then I thought. I jumped up shocked that I was so stupid. I felt a warm liquid go down my legs making a wet spot on my shorts and hitting the ground. It was the most piercing noise I’d ever heard in my life, hitting the mahogany floor board so slowly it felt like years of life passes by.
