I’m adding new detail and hope that you enjoy reading what I am adding. I hope to show Lucifer losing Marietta to Chad
Lucifer stood outside, waiting for the sound of Marietta’s feet pounding behind him. But they never came. It had been a week since she ate with him. After the first day Chad stole her away, she hadn’t returned to their bench.
He sat with Tool, and the girls in silence, picking at the pasta he had bought the day before at the store with Marietta on the way to work. She was going to be busy and wouldn’t have time to make him a lunch.
“Dude, is that from the gas station?” Tool stared at his untouched dish.
“Yeah, it is.” Lucifer tried hiding his disappointment, but the expression on his face was hard to remove.
“So not only has she stopped eating with us, but she doesn’t even care about how you eat anymore? Man, that’s rough.”
“You know Tool, I don’t really need a reminder okay?” Lucifer stood up and left, abandoning the tasteless meal behind.
None of the group tried stopping him. They had gotten used to his further distance from the group since Marietta started seeing Chad.
Lucifer headed to the library in hopes of , but unlikely to, finishing homework for the next day. The homework for the rest of his classes were finished the night before. He hated the homework, but it had proven to be a decent distraction.
Lucifer made his way to a table in the far corner, with a large window facing the back soccer field. He looked out a saw Marietta sitting with Chad a few of the other football guys. They appeared to be teasing her, because as Chad grabbed at her hand, she pulled her arms to her chest and backed away. But only for a moment. Just as she did, she appeared to trip over nothing, and fell on her butt.
Lucifer jumped up from his chair whacking his knee on the way up. The table made a loud thud as it braced against his knee. He realized there was nothing he could do. Getting to her would take at least five minutes to get to the nearest set of doors and by then he was sure that Chad would have played her rescuer by then.
Grimly Lucifer put his hand on the chair, holding it steady so that it did not move before he could securely sit down. He had already made a bit of a scene and wanted to avoid another. A few people were staring at him still as he readjusted his papers on the table.
Peering back over his shoulder he could see her, back on her feet laughing with Chad and the others. Her same smile still held strong on her face, like the one she had shown him the first day she stood in front of him with her hand extended to him with eagerness.
