Aquamarien: A Mini Novella - Part 2

Part 1 ~ http://annas-legacy.blogspot.com/2012/03/aquamarine-mini-novella-part-1.html

I didn't even try to catch my books or pick them up after they fell. What was the use? Nobody noticed the big pile of books at my feet they were all staring at the 8x10 poster of me in nothing but a sports bra and panties.

Normally, this wouldn't have bothered me. I mean a sports bra and panties hide more than most bathing suits now-a-days. No, it was the caption that surrounded the picture that made me queasy: VOTE AQUAMARINE FOR HARVEST QUEEN, SHE'S GOT NOTHING TO HIDE.

"You know I'm running for Harvest Queen," sneered Chelsea. "How dare you run against me. Are you mental?"

I guess she had a little right to be upset. No one had signed up to run against her, so she was a shoe in. She probably already had business cards made. Now here it was a three days before the Harvest Dance and somehow my name is thrown into the ring.

I turned to face her. "So you're worried I'll beat you?"

Her nose scrunched. "As if."

I shrugged. "Then I don't see the problem."

"Why'd you drop your books then?" she asked.

"'Cause I told them to use the picture of me completely naked, but there I am wearing a sports bra and panties. Clearly, I need to fire someone."

Chelsea apparently did not appreciate my attempt at humor and stormed off. I waited till she was fully around the corner before picking up my books. I wouldn't put it past her to step on my hand or take a machete to my head. I was clearly defying my place in High School society and as Queen Bee, Chelsea would have to make sure I was punished. I imagined a bucket of pig's blood in my future.

Pushing the thought of pig's blood out of my mind I had a bigger problem to solve. Who had signed me up for Harvest Queen and how had they gotten that creepy locker room picture?

To Be Continued....
