Characters: Riley/Maya, Smackle/Farkle, Zay, Lucas
This I wrote with the amazingly talented, awesome, @rilayaloving to celebrate her 100th follower. SPOILER NO ONE DIES.
Riley and Maya walked through the halls of Abigail Adams High school, hands intertwined and book bags on their backs. They are headed to Mr. Matthews class. As soon as they are there, they let go as they sit down. They reach for each other’s hands immediately afterwards, missing the contact, needing something to hold on to.
“Hello friends.” Smackle says with a large smile and a nod. “How was this weekend for you?”
“Great, me and Maya went to the park and rode a tandem bike!” Riley said with a huge grin and nudged Maya’s hand back to get her attention.
“Oh yeah, it was great,” She said smiling softly, “We got ice cream in the middle of it.”
“Mhmm, and Maya bought us pizza.” Riley said looking like she was shaking with happiness.
“Well sounds like you two had quite an enjoyable few days.” Farkle says, “Smackle and I also had a nice weekend. Didn’t we dear?”
“Oh yes indeed. We had a nice jog as we noticed we were not following healthy guidelines. After we went to Farkle’s and went to the planetarium.” Smackle says as she essentially makes heart eyes at Farkle.
“Awe.” Riley squeals.
“Okay class, today we are talking about American History, obviously, but specifically Alexander Hamilton. Can anyone tell me who he is?” Cory asks the class. “Farkle.”
“Alexander Hamilton was a Founding Father of the United States, chief staff aide to General George Washington, AKA the Secretary of treasury.” Farkle says nodding to Smackle.
“He was shot and killed in a duel with Aaron Burr.” Smackle added.
Maya sat up in her seat, reached into her book bag and pulled out a notebook. To most it would look like she would actually take notes, in reality she was working on a song idea she has had for a while.
“Very good you two, most people know of Hamilton, but not nearly as many know of the scandal that surrounds his love life.” Cory says going to the board and writing ‘Love?’
“Sir, I thought he was married to Elizabeth Hamilton.” Smackle says her eyebrows knitted together.
“He was, however, during his time in aide-de-camps to Washington during the Revolution he had written many letters to John Laurens, who some historians believe had a relationship with each other.” Cory explains pulling out a stack of papers, handing them to the people in the front rows.
A couple of hands go up, including Lucas, Zay, Maya, and Riley. Cory is smiling now as if he knows something they don’t. He points to Maya.
“Do you mean like a couple? Like Dating?” She asks in confusion.
