Chapter 2

"WHAT?!"

Steven shook his head slowly, after telling his girlfriend the bet that him and his friends had made.

"Steve, what the hell were you thinking?!"

"Baby... It wasn't generally my idea... I didn't actually plan this."

"Explain it to me, because I have no fucking idea what you're talking about."

"Okay..." He slowly took a deep breath. "Well, after pratice, Jake kept asking Justin about his and Shannon's sex life... We were just talking and talking..." He took another deep breath as he continued. "It was like that for awhile, until I opened my big fat mouth and said that, if it wasn't for you and Justin, Shannon wouldn't be popular... That's when Jake came up with this whole bet thing..."

Sylvia nodded her head slowly. "Okay... And Justin told you to pick the girl right?"

Steve nodded his head slowly.

"And who is this 'so called' dorky, ugly looking girl?"

Steven sighed deeply. "Jessica Briggs." He cringed as Sylvia yelled with disbelief.

"Out of all girls, you choose her... Why?"

"Well, I mean come on... She's number one in our class... That show's you that she's a complete nerd... And plus, she's butt ugly."

Sylvia shook her head. "She's not ugly Steve."

"How would you know?"

"Baby, just because I'm one of the most popular girls at this school, doesn't mean I don't notice anyone."

"Okay. I'm sorry." Steven smiled, as he wrapped his arms around her waist and slowly pulled her towards him. "C'mere." He said quietly, a smug smile on his face.

He slowly brought his lips to her neck, as he left tiny butterfly kisses over and over again.

"Mmm... Someone's getting horny." Sylvia said quietly, as she felt Steven's hand go under her shirt, as he gently caressed the soft skin on her back.

"So?" He mumbled softly against her neck. He slowly lifted his head, as his lustful eyes looked back into hers. "Why don't you stop me?" He said seductively, as he carefully unfastened her bra.

"Why should I? I feel just the same." She smiled seductively.

"Ow... I like that." He smiled once more, as he captured her lips with his in perfection. Their lips moved with such passion, with such love. They embraced eachother gently, as they slowly fell back onto her bed.

* Friday afternoon, lunch *

"Hey four eyes, how's it going?"

Jessica sighed angerly, as she walked past a group of guys, laughing thier heads off. She kept walking until, one of the guys stuck his foot out, knocking her to the ground. Her eyes watered with unwanting tears, as she slowly stood up and slowly began to pick up her things, as the guys continued laughing uncontrollably.

"Hey! Shut the hell up!"

Jessica cringed, as she heard a loud masculane voice echoed through her ears.

"Hey... We... We're sorry man. We were just trying to be funny."

"I don't find this at all funny!" He said angerly. "Get the hell out of here and don't let me catch you picking on her again!"

They nodded, as they quickly walked away.

"I'm sorry about that." He said sincerely. He bent down, as he helped her collect her belongings. "Here, let me help you."

"No... It's okay really." She stood up quickly, as her eyes came in contact with his.

"Hi... I'm Justin... Justin Timberlake, you must be Jessica Briggs right?"

"Yeah, hi." She said awkwardly. She wrapped her arms tightly around herself. The sense of his presense giving her a bad vibe.

"Cool... Well, hey listen. How 'bout I take you out to lunch?"

"No thanks." She said, as she quickly began to walk away.

"Please? It's the least I can do after what those guys did to you." His eyes pleaded, as he looked at her.

She stopped as she looked at him. "I suppose." She said quietly.

Justin smiled, as they began walking to the student parking lot.

--------------------------------------

"Hey hey, how's it going?" Steven said, as he planted a kiss on Sylvia's lips. He smiled, as he took a seat next to her, along with their 'popular' buds.

"Hey guys!" Shannon smiled, as she appoarched them.

"Hey Shan." They all said as one.

"Yo, did ya'll see who Justin left the school with?" Jake said suddenly.

"Na. Who?" Steven said, as he wrapped his arm around his girlfriend's waist.

"Jessica Briggs." This caused Shannon's head to turn around rapidly.

"Excuse me?" She said, as she gave her friends a disgusted look. "Can you tell me what the hell my man is doing with that nasty ass trappy bitch?!"

They looked at her dumbfolded for a second. That was until Sylvia spoke up. "Why do you always assume that every girl Justin speaks to is a trap or a bitch?" She asked angerly.

"Because they are! I'm the most popular girl at this school and every girl knows he's mine!"

"You seem to forget, that if it wasn't for me and Justin, you wouldn't be as popular as you are! Don't fuck with me Shannon, because if you do, I'll turn you back into the lonely loser you were the day you walked into this school!!"

Everyone stayed quiet as they witnessed the tension between the two girls. Sylvia was right. If it wasn't for her and Justin, Shannon wouldn't be who she is. She must of known Sylvia was right as well. She grabbed her duffel bag and headed towards the school.

Sylvia sat back down, as she brought her hand to her face. She was red and angry. Steven sighed softly, as he tried to calm her down.

"Well, after that what do you think is going to happen between Justin and Shannon?" Sabina asked.

"Well, if Sylvia knows Justin as well as I do, it won't be pretty."

"Hey, she doesn't know about the bet does she?" Jake remembered suddenly.

"No." Both Sabina and Steven said.

"He's gonna break up with her." Sylvia said quietly. She slowly looked up, as they all listened to her carefully. "It's been on his mind for months... After 3 years of being together. 3 years of being known as the most popular and happy couple at Orlando High. It's all gonna be over." <%=title%>
