You Look Pretty Low



Four of the five suspension days had passed for Peyton and I, today being Friday and the last one. We hadn’t done much really, just a lot of sleeping and eating. And a lot of smoking for me and drinking for Peyton.


It’s what we’re good at.

And, of course, the boys had been visiting every day after school. We just let Alex and Peyton disappear for an hour or two to let off sexual steam before we watched movies and junk. Zack had been overly…friendly to me recently though. Like randomly running his fingers down my arm or playing with my hair. Really…affectionate.I’m pretty sure I didn’t like it.

Now it was about 4pm, meaning the boys would be round any minute. I’d just got out the shower and was walking round our room in just a small towel when the front door rang.

“I’ll get it,” Peyton chuckled

I just smiled as she legged it down the stairs, crouching down to my underwear drawer as I heard her open the front door. Hmm…boy shorts or thong? Oh the decisions. But my thoughts were interrupted by a couple of familiar quiet knocks. I smirked and stood up, ruffling my wet hair.

“Come in, Zack!” I called

Slowly the door opened, and Zack walked in shyly.

“I-I’ll come back in a minute,” Zack stuttered, diverting his eyes

“It’s not like you haven’t seen me naked before,” I shrugged

Zack just froze as I dropped my towel to the floor, making me laugh and walk towards him.

“T-Trin, I c-came to talk to you,” Zack protested

He shut the door anyway. Liar.

“Talk later, ride now,” I purred

Zack just bit his bottom lip and pulled his t-shirt over his head.

[One hour later]

I collapsed next to Zack, both of us breathing heavily and drenched in sweat. That was the best I’ve had in a long long time. I grinned, reaching over to my bedside table for a cigarette, and lit up, taking a long drag before exhaling slowly.

“You don’t know what you do to me,” Zack said softly, tracing patterns on my bare stomach with his fingertips

“I think I’ve got a good idea,” I chuckled, rolling on my side to face him, not bothering to cover up my nakedness

“Trin…can I talk to you now?” Zack asked nervously

He was being serious before? My bad.

“Nothing’s stopping you,” I shrugged, waving my hand around

“C-Can we get dressed first?” Zack mumbled, looking into my bright blue eyes

I sighed but stood up. I quickly pulled on some random underwear and grabbed a simple white strap dress from my wardrobe, pulling that on too. While Zack zipped up his jeans, I finished my cigarette and put it out in my ashtray. I grabbed a piece of gum as Zack sat down next to me, popping it in my mouth. Essential for a smoker.

“Trin, I want to ask you something that I’ve been mulling over for a while,” Zack said softly

“Okay…” I prompted, drawing out the vowels

“Will you be my girlfriend?” Zack blurted

I stared at him in shock, my gum falling out my mouth as my jaw dropped.

“Excuse me?” I choked

“I really like you, Trin. You’ve got to like me at least a little bit if you continually fuckk me!” Zack explained hopefully

“I’m sorry, Zack. I don’t do relationships,” I replied, shaking my head

I stood up from my bed and walked over to the window. Zack followed me after a few seconds.

“So that’s it? You just expect us to stay fuckk buddies?...or whatever it is we are?” Zack asked angrily

“We are nothing. We occasionally fuckk when I seduce you…that’s it. I don’t see what you’re reading into!” I retorted

“And there I was thinking you weren’t a heartless bitch. I thought you were different, Trinity Hayes, but you’re just like everyone else. Fuckking scared of commitment,” Zack spat

I spun on my heels and punched him square in the jaw. As hard as I could. So hard that he fell backwards, whacked his head on my bedframe and dropped to the floor unconscious.


“Asshole,” I muttered, running a hand through my messy hair

Reluctantly I pulled a pillow from my bed. After checking Zack for head wounds – there was no blood – I tucked the pillow under his head and straightened his body so he was lying on the floor between the two beds. Then I reached under Peyton’s bed for a bottle and walked over to my windowseat.

“Fuckk him,” I mumbled



“Do you reckon he’s asked her yet?” Jack asked excitedly

Me, Alex, Jack, Rian and Kara were all sitting in Rian’s bedroom.

“I don’t know…let’s check,” I grinned

I leapt to my feet and ran out the room, and into Rian’s parents’ room. I heard the others run behind me, but we all stopped when we saw through the window that Trinity was sitting on her windowseat, drinking.

“Shit, that’s my Absinthe she’s necking,” I groaned

“The bottle you bought yesterday?” Alex frowned

“I put it straight under my bed,” I nodded

“But that bottle’s nearly empty!” Kara gasped

“Then she’ll be as pissed as a fart. I’d better go see what happened,” I sighed

“We’ll go too…for back-up if nothing else,” Jack said with a weak smile

The five of us left the bedroom, Alex slipping his hand into mine as we walked down the stairs.

“You’re really protective of your sister, aren’t you?” he smiled

God Ilove adore that smile.

“She’s the only family I have. We rely on each other and only each other because for all our lives we’ve been let down by everybody else. She may be nine months older than me, but she’s still vulnerable,” I said softly

We paused our conversation as Rian opened the front door, waiting for the other three to walk out before starting again.

“Trin? Vulnerable?” Alex asked, confused

“Mmhmm. I know my sister. She thinks hiding her emotions behind a concrete wall will stop her getting hurt, but she’s actually just as emotional as me. Hell, our temper’s are just as short if nothing else,” I mused

I squeezed Alex’s hand before letting go and walking to the Bensons’ front door. As soon as I opened it, we raced up the stairs to my bedroom. I opened the door of the room slowly, instantly hit by a wave of cigarette smoke and alcohol.

“Jesus fuckking Christ,” I coughed

We walked in, Alex shutting the door behind us.

“Trin? Trin, where’s Zack?” Jack asked

She mumbled something, taking another swig of her poison.

“I didn’t catch that hun,” Jack sighed

Trinity opened the window, so Jack and I quickly walked to her side. She rolled her eyes and finished the bottle off.

“I’mnotgoingtofuckkingjump,” she slurred

She dropped the empty bottle out the window. Ah. Fair enough.

“Where’s Zack?” Rian asked, stepping closer

“WhywouldIknow?” Trinity mumbled, tucking her knees up to her chin

Then Kara shrieked, pointing between our beds.

“Zack’s on the fuckking floor!” Rian squeaked

Me, Jack, Alex, Rian and Kara rushed to Zack’s side, relieved when Alex found a pulse. Jack and I walked back over to Trinity, concerned.

“T-bag, why is Zack out cold on the floor?” Jack frowned

“Idon’tknowJDog,” Trinity replied, looking confused

“Think Trin…what happened?” I urged

I held my sister’s hand as she frowned in deep concentration. Then she giggled.

“Ipunchedhim!” she grinned, giggling some more

Jack just groaned.

“Can you three get him to the kitchen? Use cold water or something to wake him up. There’s the mother of all first aid kits in the cupboard next to the fridge, and an icepack in the freezer, top drawer,” I sighed

Kara, Alex and Rian nodded before lifting Zack out the room. Jack and I crouched down next to the drunken Trinity, who was now humming loudly.

“Sis, why did you punch him?” I asked gently

“Heaskedmeto...tobehisgirlfriend!” Trinity slurred, clearly struggling to speak now

Jack chuckled, so I glared at him.

He stopped.

“That’s not a good reason to knock him out,” I frowned

Trinity slammed the window shut and swung her legs round so her body faced us, her feet missing Jack’s head by mere centimetres.

“Idon’twantafuckkingboyfriend! I’mquitehappyhowIam!” Trinity protested

And with that, she stood up. Took one step. Passed out.

Jack caught her before she hit the floor, making me let out a breath of relief.

What a fuckking drama.

Jack stood her up as well as he could as he stood up, helping me to stand up too.

“Well, I wasn’t expecting this,” Jack snorted

“I should’ve know she’d reacted like this because of this. She only drinks herself into a stupor alone when she’s upset. I just wonder what Zack said to make her punch him so hard. There’s a slight mark on the bedframe…he must’ve hit his head…but still, she must’ve hit him damn hard,” I frowned

“I guess we’ll find out when they wake up,” Jack mused

“Mm, true. Help me get her into bed, yeaah?” I chuckled

Jack smiled and picked my sister up. I walked over to her bed and pulled her crumpled duvet back, grimacing at the sex smell, but covered her body as Jack laid her down.

“Come on, let’s help the others,” Jack smiled

I just nodded and followed him to the door. Before I walked out, I turned my head to look at my sister’s unconscious body.

“Why, Trin? Why couldn’t you have taken a chance for once?” I whispered

Jack tapped my shoulder, so I shut the door and followed him down the stairs. This weekend would be interesting.

Oh Trinity....
Zack finally grew a pair....and ended up unconscious! Poor Zack!
Is this the end of them?

On a slightly more random note, I'm eating chocolate doughnuts right now! I'm not a big fan...Jam (Jelly if you're american) is more my thing. What's your favourite flavour doughnut?
Comments would be great =]

Peace and goldfish
