Rivals (Part 1)
tA/n: @cecenybabe sorry for the wait! Here’s part 1, I’ll end it at the second part.
“Y/N, L/N” “Here”, you said as you did not even bother to look up.Once again, you had stayed up way past getting a good night’s rest. “Mark Tuan”, the teacher called, followed by a “here”. You rolled your eyes even at the mention of his voice. Mark Tuan, the “bad boy” of the school, well, him and his little friends. You hated people who acted stuck up, snobby, and like they just ruled the world, not really caring about anyone. Unfortunately, almost every girl fell for it. Not you, no, you were too smart to be one of his victims. You avoided him almost every chance possible because ever since that day, he was a pest that did not want to go away.
About a month ago, you, once again, failed to get a decent amount of sleep. You bumped into Tuan as you spaced out and, of course, apologized because it was the right thing to do.”Sorry”, you said with a half-smile and was about to walk away till he grabbed your wrist,”have I seen you around here?”, he said. You removed your hand and shook your head,”I dont think so”, and left as soon as possible. You thought that was the end of it until your class’s assigned seats changed and you were lucky to be sat next to him.
“Oh, youre the clumsy girl”, he said as he sat down and pointed. What on earth did bumping into someone point to clumsiness?, it happened one time. “Yea I guess thats me”, you responded. He smirked and winked at you,”maybe we could have some fun sitting together.” Oh no, no, you knew were this was going and intended to put a stop to it. “No, we just sit next to each other, thats it”, you said to him and turned as the teacher started to talk. “youre gonna be a feisty one”, he whispered. You wanted to say something but afraid of the teacher calling you out so you ranted in your mind.
Feisty one? what do I look like? some tool for his amusement? maybe if you werent such a dick id actually give you the time of day.
Ever since then, it would not stop. You figured he would become bored after a couple weeks but he stayed pestering you for months. Although you didn’t want to admit, some small part of you enjoyed his presence, though that feeling was buried very deep. Another day was ahead and you walked through the halls as Mark spotted you. Groaning as you turned around, Mark walked up behind attmepting to place his hand on your shoulders. You were too used to it and deflected it with perfect timing. “Im not in the mood today Tuan”, you said. “Isnt that everday though? your attitude is too moody, your boyfriend wouldnt like this”, he responded. “well, sure am lucky I dont have one then”, you retorted.
“You know I could-”, “yea, never happening Tuan.”, you said, for about the 100th time. “God, youre such a, such a”,”Bitch?”, you completed his sentence, you knew he wanted to say it. “Well, yea, a hard one to crack”, he said as he scoffed. “Then just leave me alone, my world would be a much better place.”, you said. “I know I may be somewhat of a douche”, “somewhat?” you interrupted. “ugh, youre boring, goodbye”, he said as he walked off. You breathed a sigh of relief as you walked towards your friend. “Tuan troubles?”, he asked. You looked at your friend, Jackson, and nodded. He smiled and ruffled your hair,”he totally has a thing for you.” “Thanks captain obvious”, you said as you opened your locker.
“No Y/N, like a real thing”, Jackson said. You sighed,”Jackson, I know you see the best in everyone but Mark”,you said as you turned the hallway and pointed at him. His back was on the locker as one of his girls had their hands on his chest,”Mark, he can’t be helped.” “Yea Y/N, but hes doing that little kid thing where he likes the girl but everyone thinks he hates her but he looooves bothering her”, Jackson cooed. You rolled your eyes,”listen wang, lets say he did, I would never ever date the literal scum of the earth.” The bell rang before you two could continue your conversation and it was time to head to class. Luckily, you had gym, which equaled the equivalent to doing nothing. Sadly, however, it was Mark Tuan.
This time, in order to hide from the boy, you went inside the closet where they stored all the balls. There was a light and a place to hide from anyone who came, you were sure he could never find you.To your happiness, it worked for about thirty minutes until you heard the door open and a voice you recognized. “Man, Im so tired.” Mark Tuan. Shhh, you told yourself. He wouldnt know if you just kept your mouth shut. You heard him sit down and sigh,”aaaa, love coming here to relax, I wonder where Y/N is. she’s always hiding, im tired of looking ugh.” You smirked and spoke in your mind,oh wouldnt you like to know Tuan, wouldnt you like to know.
“Ugh, she’s so stupid, why would she do this? she’ll pay for this.” Pay for what? What did I do? “I cant take this anymore. she needs to take responsibility for this.”, Mark said as he was getting up to go look for you. ME? WHAT DID I DO? You wanted to say something back but you also did not want to give up where you were. Eventually, he left. As the class came to an end, you walked out, the words Mark said stirring through you heard. He could have meant generally, just you being a bitch to him but for good reason, he was a complete ass. Somehow, even with that reassurance, his words still moved your stomach.
You were taking your stuff out of your locker when a hand banged against it, making you jump and turn around, now staring into the eyes of Mark Tuan. For some reason, at this moment, you felt weak as he gazed at you. “Tuan”, you said. “Y/N”, he said as his eyes looked you up and down. Y/N, get a hold of yourself. You gulped and stood your ground. “Back Away Tuan,” you said as one hand pushed on his chest. “Where were you in gym?”, he asked as he crossed his arms. You scoffed,”like thats any of your business” “It is, come with me afterschool.” You blinked out of disbelief,”you cant just order me around like that, no thank you.” Mark started to laugh,”Oh, youre funny, I know you would never say yes, thats why I have this.”
Your eyes widened as his phone was dangling from his hands. You were about to open your mouth, Mark spoke,”Scream, it drops. Talk back to me, it drops.” You bit the inside of your cheek as your body started to build with rage. Mark smiled and took your silence as yes. “See you later babe”, he winked. As he walked off you shouted at him,”I hate you Tuan!” Mark turned around as he dangled your phone again,”What was that?” You clenched your teeth and walked off, stomping into you bumped into Jackson. Of course, you explained the situation and, of course, he got mad. You loved him for that but you wanted to handle this on your own. Once you got your phone back you were gonna go off.
