It's been one and a half week since I was paired up with Ray. Our project isn't going too well and mind you I'm doing all that I can do, it's Raymond who hasn't completed his part yet.

Well, yeah unfortunately I'm still helping him with his physics assignments. I don't know whether he understands what I teach him. He never asks me anything related to the topics which we've covered. Never. All he does is stares at me. All the time. But whatever, why am I even concerned about him?

I just want to get rid of him. Yeah, that's what I want!

Well it's our holiday today though it's Thursday but we have an inter school competition in our school so no school today! My plans for today are simple

1. I am just going grab some food.

2. Stuff it into my mouth.

3. Read Novels.

Yeah novels, I am in love with almost every second character of the novel.

It was only ten in the morning and I was ready to set my plan into action when my phone buzzed.

1 message from Raymond

* Tap to read*

Morning Princess. I was wondering if you'd like to grab a coffee with me? At Rico's?

P.S - Don't freak out. This is not a date. It's regarding our project.

Does he even care about the project?

But it's better if we finish the project as soon as possible. We don't have a lot of time left anyway.

Yeah. Cool.

~ Sophie

Great. So I'll see you there in 20.

~ Raymond

I reached there early. While waiting for Raymond I saw a girl nearly our age having a perfect body with these amazing looks and innocent face.

I was just wondering what she was saying to the girl who stood next to her. It seems like she was scolding her. They were having a n argument, sort of.

"You look beautiful" My thoughts were snapped by a deep husky voice. I tilted my head upwards and realize it to be none other than the expected guy Mr. Popular.

"Hey! Thanks" I replied. I could feel my cheeks heated.

Stop blushing Soaf, he doesn't need an ego booster right now.

"So what should I get you?" Ray asked. A small smile plastered on his lips.

I think he saw me blushing. Geez that was embarrassing.

"Cold coffee with some added sugar" I said while pretending to read the menu card.

"I'll be right back." He replied and headed towards the counter.

While I was waiting for him to get our orders, the two girls who were still arguing caught my attention.

"Here you go." said Raymond, placing my coffee in f

ront of me.

"Thanks" I gave a small nod. Suddenly the coffee seemed more interesting than anything else in the Diner.

We sat there in an awkward silence. Our gaze met once or twice and we just passed a smile to each other and then looked away. Again.

Okay now this is not what you expect from Mr. Popular of the school. I knew that he could anytime start throwing those typical pick up lines.

But that's exactly what didn't happen.

"Princess I need your help with the project. I've not even started my part and there are hardly days left for the submission. Please help me out." He sighed.

I shook my head in disappointment. I raised my eyes to meet his. He was pleading me through his eyes, as if I'm the one going to save his life.

And for one second I felt confident. I felt like I could be someone's life saver.

Maybe. Just maybe I could change him. I could change the Bad Boy.

"Umm O-okay." I replied. My lips pursed in a straight line.

"What you're not angry at me?" He said in amazement.

"Naah."? I replied.

"Phew" He sighed and a smile made its way to his face, as he wiped off the imaginary sweat on his forehead.

"Why did you-" I was about to ask something when a sudden noise went across the hall. The same girl I was looking at earlier was now scolding the girl standing next to her.

Everyone in the Diner could simply hear her.

"You bitch, stay away from him. He's mine you dumbass. He is cheating on you. Have you ever thought why would a popular guy like Caleb will fall for a nerd like you? Just look at you, buried in books, thick glasses, do you have any idea how hideous you look?"

Apparently everyone in the Diner was shocked. Not because of the fight but because the girl who said those words looked innocent. Her face was Angelic. Anyone could fall in love with her at the first glance. Her features were soft and beautiful. She looked simple yet beautiful.

Then there was this other girl, with thick glasses, chestnut hair, a little fat. Her books were still lying on the table and her fingers were tightly gripping them. Her breathing was heavy and tears brimmed in her eyes. She could explode any minute into tears.

I could feel how humiliated she felt. I felt that too.

Everyone in the Diner was staring at her. Some of the guys were laughing too.

I turned to look at Raymond.

"This is bullshit." He said

"Tell me about it" I deadpanned.
