‘Please?’ Allison begs. ‘Just let me cheat off you once.’
‘Allison,’ Lydia sighs. The disappointed and disapproving look she throws her girlfriend is almost enough to make Allison back down. Almost.
‘Let me sweeten the deal for you.’ Allison smirks. ‘If you let me cheat off you on the test, we can stop studying, and we can go make out until you have to go home.’
Lydia turns to face her. ‘Sweetie, you need to do well on this test, and you need to know this stuff, because it’s going to come up on future tests. I’m not going to let you cheat off me, not just because you won’t learn anything, but because you’ll be disappointed in yourself.’
Allison slumps in her chair. ‘It’s just really hard. I don’t get any of this crap.’ She gestures at the Economics text books on her desk. They’ve been at it all afternoon and evening, and she feels like her head is about to explode.
‘You’re doing better than you think,’ Lydia says, grabbing Allison’s hand and squeezing. ‘How about this: I’m going to quiz you. Ten questions. If you get eight of them right, we’ll call it a night, go make out, and continue tomorrow.’
‘I have to get eight of them right?’ Allison asks indignantly. There’s no way she can get that many right.
‘That’s the percentage you need to bring your grade up to passing.’
‘Fine.’ Allison chews on her lip for a second, grins and says, ‘What if I get that grade on the actual test?’
One corner of Lydia’s mouth ticks up and she raises an eyebrow. ‘You’ll just have to wait and see. But trust me, it’s worth all this.’
Still holding Lydia’s hand, Allison squares her shoulders and gets ready for Lydia’s impromptu quiz. She’s going to get that reward.
