The More We Can Do

Lunch Day 3

Ashley: Don't listen to them Blossom. They are upset that money can't buy them happiness so they lash out on others to make them feel better about themselves.

Justin: Well said Ashley.

Blossom: Don't you think they are pretty?

Ashley: No, they are full-on Monet.

Blossom: What's a Monet?

Ashley: It's like a painting, see? From far away, it's OK, but up close, it's a big old mess. Let's ask a guy. Justin, what do you think of those snobby girls?

Justin: Hagsville. This girls are empty shells.

Ashley: See?

Blossom and Ashely then looked at Jack who was eating quietly.

Ashley: Jack......?

Jack: Hmmmmm? What?

Ashley: What do you think of those girls over there.

Ashely pointed at the girls at the snobby table where Lance was. Jack looked up and scanned the table for a bit with no emotion in his eyes and sucked his teeth a bit. Blossom , Ashley and Justin waited to see his response.

Ashley: Well?

Jack: All I see are some jocks in need of a beat down and some THOTs in need of repellent.

Ashely and Justin snickered at Jack's comment and Blossom was a bit confused.

Blossom: What do you mean by "Thought"?

Ashley: He means T-H-O-T, as in That Hoe Over There. Its a simple way for guys to address girls who have no self esteem and not respect for themselves......and some of them may have daddy issues.

Justin: You said it girlfriend, but you're not wrong.

Jack nodded at Blossom and went back to quietly eating.

Blossom: Wow I didn't know that.

Listening to the conversation between Ashley, Jack, Justin, and Blossom had Courtney, Sam, Rose, and Matt all laughing a bit at their definition of the snobby girls.

Courtney glanced at Rose and then said to the table in general. "Maybe, we should agree that if they mess with one of us, they mess with all of us. " She paused took a sip of her drink and then said. "If we have that we'll have something they don't. Loyalty to each other." She didn't, necessarily, mean beating up the rich kids but more in the sense of protecting each other if it was needed.

Then Jack spoke up after swallowing his food.

Jack: That sounds good and all but its pointless if we get kicked out in the process. Might want to stick to just self defense in public. As for revenge.....might want to get picky in the how and when part.

Ashley kissed Jack on the cheek.

Ashley: Jack you are such a bad boy.

Ashley looked at Courtney and smiled at her.

Ashley: Don't mind Jack. He is just being a Gloomy Gus after the yogurt incident this morning.

Justin: Its true. Underneath all his gloom and doom he is a rather cool guy.

Blossom giggled a bit as Jack sighed and continued eating. He didn't like being the center of attention and this was why he preferred to keep quiet.

Ashley: Don't worry, I am sure not all the rich kids at this school are snobs. I'm not. In fact I am surprised those jerks haven't tried to target me yet.

Blossom: But they did.

Ashley: They did?

Blossom: Yes it was when......

Jack: That was something else.

Ashley: He's right.

Blossom: Oh okay.

Sam spoke up and said. "There are plenty of nice rich people here. We have a few at this table."

Courtney nodded, she glanced to the rich kid's table and then turned back to the people she was sitting with. " I meant more of a united front than actually, doing anything to them. If they attack one of us; well we certainly defend that person but the more united we seem the less likely they'll be able to pick us off one at a time.
Whatever happens, though Melissa is off-limits. She is just in a ....well...I can't explain it but I'm pretty sure she'll end up with us and not them."

Sam turned to the table behind her that held Dawn, April, and Zander and said. "You're all part of this united front as well. right?"

Dawn looked to April and Zander who nodded their heads she then turned back around. "Absolutely."

The bell rang, and the mass exodus that can only occur at mealtimes at schools happened.

Melissa hadn't eaten much at lunch and Doug walked her to class kissed her and she took her seat. This was a cooking class and as luck would have it she had it with Dawn. And even more, as luck would have it she and Dawn had been partnered up. She told Dawn what the rich kids were planning, secretly, under her breath as they pretended to be going over a recipe.

Dawn texted Sam who then told Rose. And while it was a rare occurrence Rose's lips actually formed a grin as if she was devising a plan. Rose texted Kyle and the two, while they should have been paying attention in the class formed a plan, the rich kids weren't going to outdo them. They were just going to do things differently.
