The Blame Game – Chapter 3

Avery sighed. It wasnโ€™t the first time Angelina placed the blame on someone for something like this. When she was in the 9th grade, she wasn’t prepared at all for her History final, as she had spent more time playing video games and hanging out with her friends than she did studying. So, the day of the big exam, she decided to cheat off of one of her classmate’s papers. Mr. Lamboni, the History teacher at the time, thought he had seen Angelina cheating during the exam and asked her to stay after class.

When she was asked if she had been cheating, she told Mr. Lamboni that it wasn’t her he had seen. She claimed that the one responsible was Olivia, one of her other friends. They had been wearing matching outfits that day, so he was totally fooled. Olivia ended up having detention for the next two days, and she also had to retake her History final. Meanwhile, Angelina ended up with a decent score, and didn’t have to suffer any consequences for her wrongdoing.

Last year, she decided to take a day off from school. Only it wasn’t a federal holiday, teacher-conference day, or medical appointment day. However, luckily, she had to help her Uncle Rob that day, so after she left for his house, she helped him out till around noon and then took the rest of the day off. The next day at school, when Principal Miller asked her where she had been the previous day and questioned if she had skipped school, she showed him a note that her parents had written for her, and that was enough to ease the man’s suspicions. Of course, she had cut off the part where it said she only had to miss school so that she could help him “only for a few hours”, but she didn’t really care. She had avoided getting in trouble, and that was good enough for her.

Avery was brought back to reality as soon as they reached the principal’s office. She and Principal Miller stepped inside. Avery took a seat as Principal Miller shut the door behind them and began to take a seat at his own chair. Avery sighed again. โ€œOne of these days that girl is going to get herself in some serious trouble,โ€ she mumbled to herself as she was about to spend the next two hours in detention.
