Average Boy
By Hossana Isaac O.
(Hossy High School Series)
Chapter 1
The French door to the lobby of Hollywood Arts High School opened and a tall dude with a bag hung over his shoulder and one hand held it
The other hand slipped into his pocket and he walked in
Immediately, heads turned into his direction
First it was just one person that sighted him, then she alerted her friends and it began to spread from one mouth to another
Soon, everyone was stealing glances at him
๐ŸšบOMG,is he a demigod?
๐Ÿšบhow can someone be so good looking?
๐Ÿšบhe looks like a movie star
๐Ÿšนif I was a girl, I’ll definitely go for him
๐Ÿšนthis dude is super handsome. I wouldn’t be surprised if Candy dumps me for him
๐Ÿšบhe’s definitely gonna be my next boyfriend
The boy whose name was Beck Oliver heard almost everything they said and he felt like their eyes were boring wholes into his body
He walked on not really knowing where he was going
Voice: Beck?
He turned and saw a black boy with natural dreadlocks that fitted him perfectly
Beck: Andre…
He hugged the black guy
Andre : man, it’s so good to see you again
Beck: I really missed you dude
Andre : I’m glad you’re here. How do you like our school?
Beck: I think I’m gonna love it here
A white boy named Robbie with curly black hair walked towards them
He was holding his talking, freaky puppet, Rex
Robbie : OMG, are you a human being?
He asked Beck
Beck : uhm, yes…. Why’d you ask?
Robbie : gosh, you’re so handsome
He moved and touched Beck’s long hair
Beck moved back immediately
Beck: I’m sorry mister, but I’m not a gay
The puppet laughed and Beck’s eyes widened
Rex: of course, who wouldn’t think you’re gay when you act like a girl. You even look like a girl
Beck: your puppet talks? How is that possible?
Andre: he was programmed to do so
Rex: you bag of shit.. Are you trying to say I’m a robot
Andre: I’ll kill you
He moved and took the puppet from Robbie then threw it away
Robbie : oh no! Rex
He ran and took him before coming back to them
A girl ran into the lobby
Girl: OMG guys, Victorious are coming
Everyone cleared out from the middle and stood beside the walls
Some took their phones, ready to take pictures
Shortly, three girls walked in
They began to cheer and take their pictures
The girl in front and the leader of the group was Tori Vega
Pretty, tall and smart
Sings like a nightingale and is filthy rich
She has a good character but doesn’t really care about other people
She doesn’t discriminate but doesn’t mingle
In fact, it could be that in a whole semester she speaks to not up to five other students
The girl behind her was Jade West
She’s the scariest and meanest girl in the whole of Hollywood Arts.
She’s tall and beautiful
Always on black makeup
Her hair is a combination of blue green and black highlights
Sometimes red
You would never see Jade wearing a colorful outfit
She’s always on black
Her favorite toy is a scissors
When she is bulling you, she uses her scissors to tear your clothing, bags shoes and even your hair
She hates butterflies and cute animals
Hates children and their laughter
But loves their cry
If Jade is having a bad day, just skip school and save yourself the havoc
But despite being a villain, she has one of the best singing voice in Hollywood Arts
The third member of Victorious is Cat Valentine
Her name is funny right?
Her actual name is Catherine Valentine but she just goes by the name Cat
She’s funny and stupid
Really beautiful but silly
Her hair is red and long
Her favorite color is pink and she loves cute animals
Never would you see Cat wearing a black shirt
It’s always pink, purple or red
She hardly even wears yellow
In fact, she’s the exact opposite of Jade
People keep wondering how they even get along
The only similarity is their voice
But Cat’s voice is somehow better than Jade’s
The Victorious walked through the lobby to their class without talking to anyone
Jade was just typing on her pearpad (a type of phone that looks like a pear ๐Ÿ)
Cat was holding a pink and white teddy bear and Tori was making a phone call
When they left, everyone got back to their businesses
Beck: whoa, who are they?
Andre: Victorious. They’re like the head of the school. They stand up for the students right and help us get what we want. They’re so rich and their parents are famous. They’re talented singers and dancers. In fact, they’re the best
Robbie : but they hardly interact with us though. They’re so limited to themselves.
Andre : and for the record, stay away from Jade
Beck: why? Is she your girlfriend?
Andre, Robbie and Rex began to laugh and Beck became confused
Andre : she’s not my girlfriend. She’s the scariest girl in the whole school. She even beats teachers up. The meanest human I’ve ever met. Just stay away from her
Robbie : I have a crush on Cat. So stay away from her too
Rex began to laugh really hard that they all looked at him
Rex : a girl crushing on a girl? Hilarious
Robbie : just shut up. That’s it, I’m keeping you in the bag
He brought down his bag and opened it, he placed Rex in it and zipped it
Beck: this school is awkward
Andre: you can say that again
The bell rang signifying that classes should commence
Students began to leave the lobby
A girl with a red shirt and black pants moved over to Beck
Girl: hi hottie. I’m Mandy
She stretched forth her hand for a handshake
Beck: nice to meet you Mandy
Mandy: nice to meet you too. I see you’re new here
Beck: yes, and I have to get to class now. Bye
He began to move away
She walked after him
Mandy: wait…. You didn’t tell me your name?
Andre: he’s really busy. Bye
Beck and Andre entered the class and shut the door
Mandy felt embarrassed and some girls laughed at her misfortune
Beck sat down at the back seat with Andre and some girls kept stealing glances at him
Beck: this is so awkward
He whispered
Andre : it’s cause you’re handsome
๐ŸšบI think he’s rich just look at him
๐Ÿšบhis skin is so smooth and white.
๐ŸšบI wonder if he has a girlfriend
Beck smirked and looked at the girls
He flashed a smile and they almost fainted
The teacher entered and began to teach about how to memorize scripts
Beck Oliver is a Canadian boy of 18 years.
He lived in Canada all his life but relocated to USA about a year ago
You already know how good looking he is
Everybody thinks he’s rich but he isn’t
He’s just an AVERAGE BOY who lives with his mother
He’s father ran off when he was still a little boy
To survive, Beck does some minor jobs like being a waiter, janitor, gardener, or a driver
He met Andre in Canada when he was fifteen and since then, they’ve been friends
Beck is like the best dancer
That’s why he’s mother let him attend Hollywood Arts, a school for training young talented people who want to become actors or anything that has to do with entertainment
Jade: hey, this network sucks
Cat: is it delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹?
Jade: Cat, don’t get on my nerves
Cat: you know, one time my brother and his friends got on a police officer’s nerves
Jade: then what happened?
Cat: they’re still in jail
Jade: do you want to join them?
Cat: no way. Jail is awful
Jade: then don’t get on my nerves
Cat: sorry
She sat down and hugged her teddy
Tori: you just demoralized Cat
Jade : I don’t care
She stood up and took her black handbag and headed out
Cat pouted and looked down
Tori: don’t worry Cat, I’ll take you out for ice-cream ๐Ÿฆ
Cat: yay! Ice-cream!
She squealed and Tori covered her ears
School was already over, students headed out
Beck and Andre moved out too
Beck: Andre, I really need a job
Andre : can you work as a waiter?
Beck : of course I can
Andre: great, meet me by 5pm and we’ll go there
Beck: thanks dude, I owe you a bunch
Andre: anything for you
Beck: good bye. I’ll see you by 5
Andre: no probs dude, see ya
He left and Beck turned to go
He walked forward a little and bumped into Jade
Beck: oh Jade Jesus Christ!
Jade: excuse me, I’m not Jade Jesus Christ. I’m Jade West. Now get lost
Beck quickly moved out of the way
Jade moved forward but stopped and looked back
Jade: I see you didn’t come with your car today. Why don’t I drop you off?
Beck: no don’t worry I’m okay. I’ll just…
Jade: when I talk about something, you don’t object. Now follow me to my car and avoid my wrath
Beck shuddered and simply followed her
Besides, it would save him money and he could use it for something else
But he’s kinda scared of this Jade
Who wouldn’t be?

#Chapter 2
Jade turned on her music and Beck frowned upon hearing the type of music she was playing
It was a funeral song
He wanted to ask why she was playing it but he shove it off
Jade: so Beck, how long have you been handsome?
He looked at her abruptly
Beck: you know my name already?
Jade: is that the answer to my question?
She was just looking straight into the road as if her eyes were glued to it and her face was expressionless
Beck: sorry
He mumbled and brought out a gum from his bag to chew
He unwrapped it and was about taking it to his mouth when Jade took it and placed it in her own mouth
Beck stood gawking at her with his hand hanging to his mouth
Jade: I’m not a clown at the circus ๐ŸŽช so don’t stare at me that way
He immediately looked forward
She changed the music to a soundtrack of evil laughter
Beck became uncomfortable
But she was enjoying the laughter
He began to wish he stayed away from her like Andre warned
Beck: I’m stopping here, thank you
He pointed to an arcade station but she didn’t even look
She kept chewing the gum and driving
Beck: you just passed where I’m to stop
She still didn’t answer
He sighed in frustration and sat back
Beck: I’m doomed
She gave an evil smirk
Jade: you’re not doomed. I’m not taking you to a crocodile pond to swim like I did to Tedy
Beck: whaaat? You took someone to a crocodile pond and made him swim?
She didn’t answer anymore
He began to breathe faster
To him, Jade was hell
Tori slammed her car door and made towards the building
She was operating her phone as she moved in
She opened the door and walked inside
She wanted to climb the stairs when she heard her name
She groaned as she turned because she knew who it was
Tori: Trina, I’m just coming back from school please
Trina: excuse me… I don’t care. Just give me what I want
She sighed
Tori: okay, what do you want this time?
Trina: your credit card
Tori: whaaat! No way
Trina: really? Wow, okay. I’m leaving and I’ll be back when dad is back from Chicago
Tori: fine, bye. I don’t need you anyway. My friends will be here when I need them
Trina: bye then
She walked past Tori and raced up the stairs to her room
Tori crossed her arms
Tori: I don’t need her anyway
She went up the stairs to her room
Trina Vega is Tori Vega’s elder sister with two years
She is tall and beautiful
But a little plump up than Tori
She’s an attention seeker and loves handsome guys
But she’s quite unfortunate compared to Tori
She never gets the attention she desires and hardly get asked out
She’s one of those girls that never gets a boyfriend
She’s a graduate of Hollywood Arts High School but everyone knows she doesn’t fit to be a student in the school
She has zero talent
She’s an awful singer and dancer
She’s one of the worst actors ever.
So people kept wondering how she got accepted into the school
In HAHS, before a student is been accepted he or she must be auditioned
The day Trina was to be auditioned, only one teacher was available for it.
And that’s Mr Sichowitz
He is very jovial but somehow silly minded
He is brilliant when it comes to his field but numb in others
He is so much in love with coconut milk that he could trade a human for one coconut fruit
What he does is to poke a hole through it and insert a straw and drink the milk
So this particular day, he found out that his cousin sent him a special type of coconut for up to three weeks.
He misplaced it but found it that day
Instead of disposing it, he took it to the audition and began to drink it
Fortunately for Trina, it was her turn to audition
Mr Sichowitz began to hallucinate because the coconut milk was intoxicating him
Everything Trina did was total nonsense but he saw her doing different things and her voice sounded angelic to him
He ended up giving her a Yes
Only few people knows the story of how Trina could enter Hollywood Arts
Sometimes Trina feels intimidated by the way her sister does everything perfectly so she always finds a way to pin her down
This particular day, their dad travelled to Chicago for a movie contract.
Tori has a particular type of phobia when she’s alone
It was there since their childhood
She hates being left alone especially at night
Back then, she used to say that monsters always attacked her when she was alone
It started after she watched a horror movie alone
Ever since then, Tori hates being left alone at night
Trina knows well about this so she uses it against her whenever their dad travels
Even though they had house workers, she still had that fear.
She opened the door to her room and closed then sighed softly
Tori: I don’t need her. I can call Jade. Wait no, Jade is scary. I will call Cat.
She hung her bag and removed her shoes then fell on the bed
She called Cat
๐Ÿ“ฒhey Cat, where are you?
๐Ÿ“ฒNona and I are making homemade ice-cream. Then we’re going to see a dog. Wanna join us?
๐Ÿ“ฒwhy are you going to see a dog with your grandma? Do you want to buy it?
๐Ÿ“ฒno, it belongs to my neighbor and he had an accident. We’re paying a visit to the dog to keep it company for the night
๐Ÿ“ฒokay, my regards to the dog
๐Ÿ“ฒyay ! Tori sends her regards to the dog
Tori squeezed her face and took the phone away from her ear because Cat was screaming the words out
She hung up and sighed again
It was obvious that Cat would not be chanced to come over
She decided to call Jade
๐Ÿ“ฒhi Jade
๐Ÿ“ฒwhy are you calling me while I’m slaughtering a chicken’s neck and watching it as it struggles to live?
๐Ÿ“ฒoh my gosh Jade, why will you do that?
๐Ÿ“ฒcause I’m bored
๐Ÿ“ฒwhy don’t you come for a sleepover tonight
๐Ÿ“ฒI wanna watch my horror CD’s today. Should I bring them?
๐Ÿ“ฒwhat no! Just… Just forget it
She hung up and threw her phone away then she groaned frustratingly
She stood up and walked to Trina’s room with her credit card ๐Ÿ’ณ
Tori: you can have it but please don’t spend too much
Trina: now that’s my little sister. Don’t worry, I will take it easy on your money as long as you follow me to the mall and help me carry all my stuff
Tori: can’t you just tag a Maid along?
Trina: no I can’t. So go and shower and meet me downstairs
Tori reluctantly went to her room and showered
She afterwards followed her sister to the mall where her life was even frustrated more by Trina
Beck breathed in relief when he entered into their living room
Jade dropped him off and he was glad he even made it to the end
He closed the door and looked around then shouted
Beck: mom, I’m home
He moved forward and dropped his bag on the only couch in the room then proceeded to the fridge for a cold drink
His mom Mrs Oliver walked out of her room to him
Mrs Oliver : how was your first day of school my little rascal?
She ruffled his hair and he laughed and held her hand
Beck: mom, I’m no longer little and I’m no longer a rascal
She laughed
Mrs Oliver : you are and will forever be my one and only little one
He chuckled and she went to the kitchen to dish out some food for him
He got a text from Andre
๐Ÿ’ฌdon’t forget to meet me by five at the restaurant we talked about
He texted back
๐Ÿ’ฌsee you there
He looked up and his mother dropped the food for him
He settled down and began to eat
Mrs Oliver : Beck, I got a job today
Beck: really? Where?
Mrs Oliver : a museum as a tourist guide
Beck: awesome. What’s the pay?
Mrs Oliver : $2,000
Beck: it’s good
He wiped his mouth with a napkin and stood up
His mom carried the plates
Beck: Andre says he has a job for me so I’m going to meet him by five pm
Mrs Oliver : wow, my regards to him please
He nodded and went to his room to shower
Andre and Beck walked out of the restaurant talking
They walked down the road a little and stopped to take a taxi ๐Ÿš•
Beck was accepted as a waiter and he was to resume the following day, after school till 9pm
Andre: one of the movie producers wants to buy my songs for his soundtrack
Beck: are you willing to sell them?
Andre: I don’t have a choice. Besides, they’re not the only songs I’ve got
Beck: I see you still have that awesome voice and song writing talent
He punched Andre’s shoulder and he laughed and ruffled Beck’s hair
Beck: hey, quit touching my hair
Andre: hahaha, I love your hair. It’s so neat and tidy
Beck: and you’re making it the direct opposite of what you just said
They laughed
A lady parked her car a few metres away from them and got out
They watched her as she tried to call someone to no avail
She looked sad and entered the car again
She began to start the car but it wouldn’t budge
Andre: I think she’s having a problem with her car
Beck: I’ll go and check it out
He moved to the car
Beck: hi, I see you’re having a problem with your car
She looked up at his face then smiled brightly
Lady: I… Yes, I’m having problems with my car. I’ve been trying to call the mechanic but his number is going straight to voicemail
Beck smiled and pushed a strand of hair back from his face
Beck: may I help?
Lady: sure
She shifted and he entered the car and tried to start it
He got out and smiled at the lady who he saw was admiring him
She smiled shyly
Beck: I’ll just check the engine
She nodded and he opened the bonnet of the car and checked
The radiator lacked water ๐Ÿ’ง so he gently asked her to buy maybe a bottle of water for him
He closed the bonnet and rested on the car like it was his own
The car was red and was quite flashy
Just then, Jade drove past him and actually saw him
Jade: he’s as rich as he looks
She wanted to turn and talk to him but she didn’t
The lady came back with the water and he poured it in
He started the car and the lady was glad
Lady: thank you so much
Beck: you’re welcome Miss
Lady: Nora, that’s my name
Beck: you have a beautiful name. I’m Beck
Nora: nice to meet you Beck
They both smiled at each other
Nora : we should meet some other time. Maybe, grab a drink together
Beck: that would be nice
She took her handbag and brought out her card then stretched it to him
Nora: here is my card. You should call me
Beck: okay, I will. Thanks
Nora: good night Beck
She pecked his cheek
Beck: good night
He hugged her and she entered her car and drove off
Andre: whoaaah, someone’s got a date
Beck got startled
Beck: hey! How did you get here?
Andre laughed
Beck: and she’s not my date
Andre: yes she is. You guys go along well and you fit each other. Besides I saw her pecking you
Beck: nah… She smiles too much. I don’t like it
Andre: you’re so impossible
Beck: hey, did I tell you about my encounter with Jade?
Andre’s eyes widened
Andre: you met that witch. I thought I warned you
Beck: let me tell you everything about how I nearly died in her car……..
They walked home talking about Jade and how scary she is
Beck was going to go straight to the restaurant immediately school was over
He checked his watch and It was just two hours to go
He wanted to walk to class but saw Victorious approaching
He cleared out of the way and he watched them coming
He smiled when he saw Tori
He loved the way she was walking and the serious face she was wearing
Her hair was long and curly and it flew around as she was walking
He leaned on the wall as they passed by
He smiled and turned to see a pretty girl standing beside him
Girl: hi Beck
He sighed
This was like the sixth girl approaching him since today
Beck: hi
Girl: you look so tired. A handsome rich guy like you shouldn’t be too tired. It’s not good for you
She touched his cheek
Beck: uhh, it’s OK. I’m not that tired
Girl: why don’t we hang out after school today?
Beck: no I’ll be…
The girl’s expression changed
Girl: you know what. Never mind. Bye
She quickly hurried away as if she had seen a ghost
Beck turned and screamed when he saw Jade standing right behind him with her hands folded
Jade: hi
He didn’t answer
He moved back so he could create a space between them
Jade: are those girls giving you a hard time?
He swallowed a lump
She smirked and turned around then shouted
Jade: hey everyone listen! Especially the girls! Stay away from Beck! Do not bother him with your problems. Don’t fall in love with him either because of his looks or his money. Do I make myself clear?
Everyone was terrified
The girls began to move away
Beck smirked happily
Jade just helped him
Jade: that’s better
She turned to face Beck again
Beck: thanks Jade
She smiled without showing her teeth
Jade : you’re welcome
Beck was surprised
So Jade even smiles?
