AGE DOESN’T 🙅‍♀️ 🙅‍♂️

“So, should we make a toast?” Jason asked as he finished filling the cu-ps up with the not very tasty liquor in front of us.
“A toast to what?” I asked alre-ady about to drink mine.
“A toast to my birthday, what else?” he scoffed.
“Oh yeah right!” I said and raised my glas-s up to gently t©uçh his. “Happy birthday!” I said as our glas-s cli-cked together.
“Well thanks.!” he said as he took a sip out of his drink.
“So why don’t you want to come downstairs and join the p@rty?” Jason asked.
“I don’t know!” I shrugged.
“Or are you Ephebiphobic?” Jason sm-irked.
“As in fear of teenage–
“I know what it means!” I cut him off. “Obviously I’m the teacher here and I don’t think that’s a thing, how can anyone fear teenagers!”.
“Some people do, depends on the kind of trauma they faced when they were teens, or sometimes peer pressure” Jason explained and I shrugged.
He’s right.
“Yeah, so Jason, can I ask you a question?” I asked taking another sip from the alcoholic drink, Gosh it burns the che-st, but it’s also getting familiar in my mouth.
“Sure! What question!”
“Why did you pretend you didn’t know math at first and why do you even skip math clas-s in school?” I asked.
He laughed. “Okay, i had no idea you’d be asking that, but fine I’ll tell you!”
I nodded and he continued. “So there’s this guy David, we kind of grew up together, he’s at my p@rty though, so honestly I am very good at math, we both were, and we grew up murdering math in every clas-s.
And then when we got to grade ten, our parents made it a competition for us and i really hated that, cause every test we did, they wanted to know who did better, well it’s ha-rd to explain the whole thing. But I got sick of the whole thing and decided, maybe if I just dropped the whole math thing maybe my mom will forget about the so called competition with David and I. He never got tired of it, he wanted to beat me though at everything, but sadly he’s not as good looking as me.” Jason said and I gave him a weird look.
He laughed. “Well thankfully, our moms dropped the competition stuff and by then I was alre-ady way behind cause I skipped math clas-s every period and I was alre-ady used to it, but my mom still compares me to David, but I don’t care, David used to be my best friend and it is weird competing with your best friend, a strong hatred will start cracking the both of you up! Well we both moved on, he hangs out with his fellow geeks and I hang with my cool friends” he said and I rolled my eyes.
“Well your story doesn’t make any s-en-se. You guys should have talked things out as friends and talked to your moms” I tell him and he shrugged.
“Well we didn’t and we broke up and I am glad, I can’t possibly be hanging out with that geek!” Jason scoffed.
“You are so rude!” I shook my head at him.
“Thanks, I learned it all from you!” he smiled ma-king me sigh.
I stood up “Oh and about your little cake toast you made down there, She’s really moody, she cusses me all the time, she calls me a bu-tt head once, sl@pped the back of my head, are you crazy?? How can you make a toast and say all that about me, people will think I’m a bad teacher, which I’m not!” I expound.


“Well I didn’t leave out the p@rt that you’re h0t, well they wouldn’t see that now because of your 1980’s dress!” Jason said and I huffed.
“I didn’t beg you to call me h0t! And what I’m saying is you were supposed to say nice things about me!” I half yelled.
“I couldn’t find one!” he retorted.
I sat down back, with a sigh. “You’re way too cruel”
“I’m not!” he replied.
We both remained quiet and when I glanced at my cu-p, I g@sped, when the hell did I drink all my alcohol.
I poured some of the liquid into my cu-p again and Jason took the bottle from me.
“Okay teach, this isn’t like any other alcohol, more than one cu-p and you’re out!” He said.
“Well you don’t know but I can hold my alcohol pretty well!” I narrowed my eyes at him.
“Okay?” he laughed and dropped the bottle in front of me.
“And don’t worry, I’ll drink alone, I bet Your friends and your girlfriend are probably looking for you!” I said.
“Yes I have friends! But I’m sorry did you just say girlfriend!”
I nodded. “Yeah why? Am I wrong, the girl with black thick hair, uh… Krystal yep that’s her name isn’t she your girlfriend?”
Jason laughed. “Eww and no.”
“Why the Eww, she’s pretty and a simple no! would have been just fine.” I explained and raised the glas-s to myl-ips for another sip.
“Okay so, Krystal is like… I don’t know how to put this, but it’s like d@t!ngyour own baby sister.” Jason expressed.
I sighed “You’re too cruel!”
“I’m not,” He laughed. “I know she has a crush on me right now, but I think she’s going to keep crushing till we’re done with high school cause I don’t think I’ll ever reciprocate the feeling!” Jason stated.
I g@sped. “Excuse me are you even human?”
“I am, and I’m just saying the truth!” Jason laughed.
“So you mean there’s not even a chance for me!” Jason and I heard a familiar voice behind us and we both turned to the door to see Krystal standing there looking heart broken. Not really, I think heart shattered.
“Krystal? When did you get here?” Jason looked so surprised.
“So you know I have a crush on you and yet you still… I… i
Krystal was speechless and her voice shook, so instead she just bit herl-ips and walked out of the room closing the door behind her angrily.
“I think she’s about to cry, go after her!” I tell Jason.
“Why would I? I’m glad she heard it, at least she’ll know we’re not bound to be together in that aspect” Jason snickered.
“You are like the most cruelest human being on earth, I can’t believe you Jason!” I yelled.
“No! I’m serious I can’t f0rç£ myself to like someone I don’t like! I don’t fall for girls that easily, that just who I am! The only woman I love right now is my mom and I don’t think that’s going to change for now!” Jason stated and I sighed.
Well he’s got a point, you can’t f0rç£ yourself to like who you don’t like.
“Anyways I’ll be leaving soon!” I said checking my phone, to know what time it is.
“Looks like you’re not p@rty popper” Jason shrugged.
“I’m not, and the only reason I’m sitting, drinking and talking here with you is because it’s your birthday, I’m just giving you a moment to spend time with your teacher!” I said.
“And I’m just here with you because you know like no one here and you’re bored.” Jason said chvgging down his drink.
I rolled my eyes and chvgged down my drink too.
I stood up from the chair I was sitting feeling a little lightheaded. I controlled my balance and carried my purse.
“So you’re leaving!” Jason stood up too.
“Yeah, I nee-d to get home early” I smiled.
“Okay, so, where’s my birthday pres£nt?” Jason asked.
I looked at him. “I have to get you a birthday pres£nt?”
He scoffed. “And you call yourself a teacher, so you haven’t been taught about birthday p@rties, you don’t come empty handed.”
“Control your goddamned mouth Jason and yes, I c@m£ empty handed, and now I’m leaving,” I rolled my eyes and walked to the door.
“Wow, and here you are calling me cruel!” Jason said as he trailed behind me.
We made it out of the room and while coming down the stairs, I lost balance and tumbled down the stairs, like Jill, but thankfully Jason caught my hand.
“A little thank you would do!” he said as I continued to walk down the stairs.
I turned to him. “You could have just let me fall!”
I was going to say thank you and then he yelled that.
“Should I push you, that would make everything easy!” Jason snickered behind me as we made it throu-gh the last flight of stairs.
“Too late!” I said.
Jason esc-rted me out the door and immediately the evening Breeze entered my pores ma-king me have this kind of urge to just puke. I think it’s the work of the drink.
“Okay, good night!” Jason said as I made it away from his door.
“See you tomorrow” I replied. “And make sure you apologize to Krystal, you really broke her heart!” I yelled.
Why am I telling?
“And you get me my birthday pres£nt! Then I’ll apologize to her.” Jason replied.
“Stupid!” I yelled before walking out of the compound. Hating the cold wind that surrounded my b©dy
I walked back into the living room after seeing Elsa off and closed the door behind me. The heavy music hitting over corners of the room.
My two friends suddenly walked up to me, they both dragged me to my room and when we got there, they shut the door and we could all hear the heavy music pla-ying from downstairs.
My friends looked mad and I wondered what was wrong. They told me to sit on my be-d, and I did and they both stood in front of me like some damn persecutors.
“What did you do to Krystal?” Simon asked?
I sighed. “I did nothing wrong!”
“Okay how is nothing wrong this, she was seriously in tears, and when we asked asked her what was wrong she just said Jason and left the p@rty, so how come your name is mentioned when you did nothing wrong!” Donald narrated.
“Oh right, see guys, she heard my conversation with my teach, about how I’m never going to reciprocate the feelings she has for me and well that broke her down, if she hadn’t eavesdrop then she wouldn’t have been heart broken about it.” I expound.
Both of my friends bec@m£ quiet as they both shared a look.
“What?” I asked them.
“Did you apologize to Krystal!” Simon asked.
“She ran out of the room before I could say sorry!” I replied.
“And what were you doing in here with your so-called h0t teacher?”
I rolled my eyes “We were having a conversation!”
“Just a conversation?” Simon narrowed his eyes at him.
I pushed him angrily. “What the hell are you thinking!”
“What the hell do you think he’s thinking?” Donald chimed in.
“You clearly left everyone down there and c@m£ in here, so you could have some alone and quality time with your teacher, I wished I never told you she was slee-ping In here!” Simon yelled.
“Okay well, fv¢k you! Because you told me and whatever quality time you are talking about, it’s not what you think!” I huffed.
“Are you sure?” Simon breathed out.
“Don’t question me about stupid things dude, just because Krystal mentioned me because of her tears doesn’t mean you should go overboard with your questions.” I stated.
Donald sighed. “Okay we are sorry, about that, but we were thinking that you may… We’re not saying you are though, we’re saying you May or May not have a crush on your teacher!”.
I turned to him immediately. “Are you dumb?” I glared at him.
I stood up angrily. “Okay, having a crush on my teacher, that is like fv¢ked up, are you guys crazy, seriously you both should know me better than that, and I thought you were both my friends. Or should I say friends my as-s”
I walked pas-sed them and made it out of the door.
~. Elsa. ~
I snuggled un-der my blanket, and packed my hair up in a bun, it’s been a day and I can’t tell how much alcohol I took but I’ve been puking since I got back from Jason’s house. Well thankfully alcohol doesn’t make me loose it unless I take more than I can carry, but I could control the little I took. And well thankfully everything has been flu-shed out, thanks to my pukes.
I la-id un-der my blanket, and before I knew it I was fast asleep.
I stared at my window and the beaming sun, I was awake but I was feeling too lazy and sick to stand up. Well my head was strong and alre-ady up but my b©dy was adamant.
I stayed on my be-d for almost thirty minutes, before finally pushing the heaviness aside and got down from my be-d. I felt heavy and I felt like puking too, a strong stupid head ache started to pound my head and I almost lost it.
I shouldn’t have drank last night, I’m pretty good with holding down my liquor but I’m not actually good the next day. This has happened two times for me and I know my b©dy more than anyone.
I made white porridge soup for breakfast and it really helped with the way I was feeling, I was watching a movie when i fell asleep.
I woke up by 2pm which gave me a lot of time to get re-ady to work. My headache was gone, I felt like myself again and I couldn’t be more glad.
Dressed for work I ate jam and bre-ad to help with the hunger I was feeling, and diluted the food with orange jui-ce from the freezer.
I adjusted the shorts around my w@!st and hung my bag around my shoulder, locked the door and made my way to work.
The sun was burning h0t, but I loved it! Because when I stepped un-der it, my b©dy felt more alive again.
Thankfully there was no traffic today, so the bus drove smoothly and I got to the hvggins residence in no time.
Mrs hvggins hvgged me happily and well I didn’t question that cause she’s always jittery and so nice.
I asked about Jason and she told me he has been in his room all day and he didn’t go to school. I didn’t ask why I just went to his room straight away.
I knocked softly on his door and I heard his low “come in”. I opened the door and walked in.
Jason was on his be-d with his phone and he just glanced at him and then turned back to his phone without saying a word, I walked over to his study desk and placed my bag on it.
“So I heard you didn’t go to school today?” I asked bringing out my textbooks.
“Yeah I drank too much last night, and I just wasn’t myself when I woke up this morning!” Jason replied.
“Oh okay I un-derstand, it was your birthday and it will be totally lame if you didn’t get wasted last time.” I nodded.
“So are you re-ady for today’s lesson?” I sighed sitting down and tapping the chair close to the one I was sitting, that was meant for Jason.
He sat up. “Honestly, I’m not!”
“Well sorry, but I can’t just go back home, and I’m very hungry right now, so if you make me talk less that would be better!” I tell him.
I am seriously hungry right now, and this is normal, cause I drank a lot so that’s how it always is with my b©dy.
“Well you can go downstairs and make something for yourself in the kitchen, you can’t teach on an empty stomach!” Jason stated.
“Well thanks, but that will be inconvenient!” I said.
“Inconvenient to who?” Jason rolled his eyes.
“I c@m£ here to teach, not cook and eat!” I said.
He scoffed. “Okay fine, but I’ll be right back!”
Jason dashed out of the room before I could ask him where he was heading to.
I sighed and turned to the books on the desk, I checked the book contents for our next t©pic and as I fli-pped the pages finding the page for our new t©pic, the door opened and Jason walked in, well I didn’t actually see him walking in but I knew he was the one.
He placed a can of coke in front of me and a pizza box beside the coke.
“Since cooking is inconvenient for you, you can have these fast food instead, and I ordered this pizza three hours ago but couldn’t even dig in, and it might be a little cold, but I know you won’t mind that since you’re way hungry!” Jason said and opened the pizza box, revea-ling the round pepperoni shaped pizza, still intact and unt©uçhed.
Wow. Jason can be this nice?
“Wow!” I breathed out.
I looked up at him. “Thank you Jason!” I smiled. “I didn’t know you could be so nice like this”.
“I’m always nice!” he shrugged.
“Yeah not really, now sit!” I ordered and he sat down.
“Thanks for this anyways” I said moving the box of pizza away from the textbooks”.
“Yeah, it’s nothing, though you’re not really a nice teacher but that’s the least I could do!” Jason said and I sighed, there he goes again!
“You don’t know, but I’m the most nicest person you would ever know” I tell him.
“Don’t lie to me, I alre-ady know the truth!” he laughed.
“Let’s just focus on today’s t©pic okay!” I said not wanting to argue with him.
We started on our new t©pic and after showing him some examples, I gave him some questions to work on, while I leaned back on the chair and enjoyed my pizza.
“Looks like you’re enjoying your meal!” Jason turned to look at me.
“Yeah, like this is so good! I mean the flavours are just so perfect, and I’m also tasting a little bit of cheese in this too!” I nodded as I gulped down the can of coke.
Jason glanced at the pizza box and then turned to me. “Looks like you’re really hungry, it’s remaining just two slice of pizza left, it haven’t been a minute and yet and you’re alre-ady done with four pizzas” Jason chuckled.
“I don’t get why this is funny, and yeah I’m way hungry, I didn’t have time to prepare something for myself before coming here, and this is actually one of my side effect for drinking! It leaves a hole in my stomach!” I explained and Jason laughed.
“Just focus on your equation!” I tell him.
He turned back to his book while I continued my meal.
I pushed the last slice of pizza with the little amount of coke ma-king a slurping noise which actually annoyed Jason cause I saw the way he glared at me.
“Focus on your book!” I wi-den my eyes at him and he shook his head negatively.
I breathed out a sigh of relief so full, thanks to Jason! I didn’t know he could be so sweet. Or maybe he’s just being nice because his birthday was yesterday? Or maybe I’m just thinking gibberish, every one has their good and bad sides.
“And done!” Jason said dropping his pen and moving his book in front of me.
“Good, now help me throw these out!” I grinned and handed him the empty pizza box and empty can.
“You’re welcome!” he rolled his eyes sarcastically as he took it from my hand.
“Good thing you know I’m thankful,” I smiled and tapped his arm twice.
Jason walked out to dispose what he was carrying, while I Turned to his book to check his work.
I sighed when I saw that Jason failed the whole question I gave him to solve and sat patiently, waiting for him to come Back.
But then my phone starts to ring and it was Neil.
“Hello!” I said as politely as I could.
“Elsa, hi, good afternoon!” I could feel his smile from the phone.
“HI, good afternoon to you too!” I smiled.
“So I guess you’re at work now right?”
“Yeah!” I replied.
“Okay, so I was wondering, if you’d let me drive you home today, I’ll be leaving work early and I just don’t want to go home yet, so I decided why not come pick you up and drive you home!” Neil said
I beamed. “Wow, Neil, thanks, that is so generous of you!”
“plea-se don’t say no!” he said throu-gh the other line and I could feel myl-ips stretch.
“Of course, and why would I say no. The almighty Neil wants to drive me home, who am I to say no!” I tea-sed ma-king him laugh.
“Okay then I’ll be there by seven thirty!” he said.
“Perfect, my work ends by seven twenty!” I tell him.
“Okay then, have a great day Elsa!” he said.
“You too!” I replied and that was the end of the call.
“Neil? Was that your graduating b©yfri£nd?” I heard Jason’s voice behind me and he immediately sat down beside me, well on his studying chair.
“It’s none of your business and what the hell is this?” I pushed his book in front of him so he could see what he solved.
“It’s the equation you gave me.” he replied.
“which you got wrong, all of them!” I half yelled. “I thought I was good at explaining things!”
He scoffed “You’re not, I asked who Neil is and you ignored that so how are you good with explaining things?”
I sighed. “Jason, can you be serious, for two minutes, if you can be serious for two second I’ll give you a dollar.!” I promised.
“No I don’t want money and a dollar is too small, what am I like five?” he shook his head.
I breathed a heavy sigh and placed my hand on his firm shoulder.
“You are eighteen Jason! So why don’t you try and act like one!”.
He chucked. “Okay according to birthday philosophies I’m not actually eighteen until a week after my birthday”
“Okay just be serious for two minutes Jason, two goddamned minutes!” I pleaded.
“Okay if I can be serious for two minutes, instead of giving me just a dollar, why don’t you tell me your real age!” he sm-irked
“And what do you want with my age?” I crossed my arms over my che-st.
“To know if you’re really sixteen, or below!” Jason stated.
I shook my head Negatively. “Okay fine, two minutes and I’ll tell you what you want!”
Jason nodded and bec@m£ quiet, he politely asked me what went wrong with his solving and I showed him how he got the whole answers wrong. He solved the problems again and got them all correct.
“Two minutes is gone, or should I say five minutes and the reason I failed these questions the first time was because you wouldn’t drink the can coke silently, you were slurping it and it was really disturbing my s-en-sitive ears!” Jason narrated and I rolled my eyes at him.
“Don’t make up excuses!”
“I’m not and also two minutes is gone and now how old a–
“I’m twenty one, happy?” I rolled my eyes… Again
Jason’s going to make my eyeba-lls fall out one day.
“What?” he laughed. “You can’t be twenty one!”
“What the hell do you mean?” I gave him a stern look.
“You’re too young, too little to be twenty one!” he chuckled.
“Excuse me?” I scoffed angrily, “was that an insult or a compliment?”.
“None!” he said immediately.
