Student Life, Fact or Fiction –Adams Speaks
-By: Francine Louise Randall
I put down my copy of Adams Speaks, the school newspaper, and looked up to see Abby weaving her way through the cafeteria.
“Frankie, you are not going to believe this.” Abby dropped her books on the table. “They’re suspending Jake for a week. I just saw him leaving the principal’s office. Frankie, he didn’t do it, I know it.”
Ignoring her frantic state, which is also her constant state when it comes to Jake Wagner, the guy of her dreams who is, “the most magnificent specimen God created”. (Her words not mine.) Abby has been secretly crushing on Jake for going on three years, ever since she saw him in Freshman Algebra the first day of high school.
“What didn’t he supposedly do now?” I asked forcing myself to not roll my eyes.
Abby sighed, “I know what you’re thinking and you’re wrong. This time I’m sure he didn’t do it.”
“So fine, tell me, what didn’t he do this time?”
“Graffiti. They said he spray painted a bunch of stuff at that construction site across from the strip mall. Mostly it was on the trailer and equipment.”
I’m not sure who the ‘they’ were she was referring to, but it didn't matter.
“Why do they think he did it?” except for the usual reasons, you know, that he looks and acts like a delinquent.
