It's not every day someone dies in Mr. Sample's sixth period physics class. We were in lab and The Samp was going on about something, but I wasn't listening. I was updating my Facebook page to say I'm now completely and definitely single. We're not supposed to use our cell phones during class or even in the hall, but this was an emergency. Thankfully I did, and just in time. Now Kent Adams will always be remembered as the guy who broke up with me on the day I died.
Perfect, it's what he deserves. He dumped me at lunch. I was devastated during fourth period, angry in fifth, and over him by sixth. I'm a quick griever. I told him I wasn't ready. I'm barely sixteen and we'd only been dating for three measly little weeks. I guess when it didn't happen at prom, he figured he'd move on. That's fine. Bye-bye.
We were doing electrical current experiments — two bulbs in a series circuit, two bulbs in a parallel circuit, and something else. I wasn't really paying attention, which is my fault, but I was going to catch up after I checked my inbox.
Freddie, my lab partner, wasn't paying attention either. She was conducting an experiment of her own and surreptitiously sipping from the diet cherry cola sitting in her giant purse. She fancies herself a bit of a mad scientist, but she's much more of an Igor if you ask me. That's a joke. I love Freddie.
