The Higgs - Ch. 6

title_page6.jpg



Higgs_219.jpg

Following in the footsteps of her big brothers, Haddie joined the A+ club!


Higgs_220.jpg

Proudly, she marched her report card straight to her dad. Who, like usual, was busy doing research.


Higgs_221.jpg

Secretly seeing each other, hanging out after work was the easiest way Atlas and Justin could spend time together without being obvious.

Atlas: Hey, did I tell you I got another promotion?

Justin: Oh, f**k you, ha ha!

Atlas: What can I say, if you've got it, you've got it!


Higgs_222.jpg

The boys went inside and watched Fetch. Justin couldn't keep his mind on the movie though.

Justin (to himself): I was a child actor, I should be getting promoted if anyone.


Higgs_223.jpg

Needing to take his mind off things, Justin decided to monkey around online.

Justin: Let's see if Seamus is on. I'm totally gonna mess with him if he is.


Higgs_224.jpg

Justin: 25/F/blonde/36dd/your place

Atlas: *yawn*


Higgs_225.jpg

Atlas: Oh, come on, leave my brother alone. Oh god, he's really falling for it.


Higgs_226.jpg

As amusing as it was, it was getting pretty late, so Atlas took the cue to exit.

Atlas: I should probably jet, I didn't exactly tell my parents I was going to stay out all night.


Higgs_227.jpg

But, Justin thought otherwise, and pushed him onto the sofa on his way out.

Justin: Wait, not so fast! Aren't you going to kiss me goodbye?


Higgs_228.jpg

All that pent up tension from work, led to... this.


Higgs_229.jpg

Justin: I think I'm going to fold the bed out, it'll be more comfortable.


Higgs_230.jpg

Atlas had an idea where this was leading, and things were moving a little too fast for his liking.


Higgs_231.jpg

Once the gloves started coming off though, he knew. Tactfully, he excused himself and left.


Higgs_232.jpg

Hoping to slip in unnoticed, his plan was foiled by running into Seamus on the stairwell. Not a word was spoken, but the eyes and body language said it all.

Seamus (thinking): He's just now coming home?

Atlas (thinking): I'm so busted! *gulp*


Higgs_233.jpg

Their mom was having a kaniption fit, so thankfully, Seamus didn't rat him out.

Alice: I'm worried, Atlas hasn't come home from work yet. Don't you think he's been spending an awful lot of time with Rob & Cyndie's son? They're probably not up to any good.

Hadron: Wha... huh?



Higgs_234.jpg

Hadron: Wait, what exactly are you implying here? He's a teenager, give 'em an inch and they take a mile. I'm not saying that it's right for him to stay out all hours of the night, just, no need to jump to any conclusions.

Alice: So, that's it, do nothing?

Hadron: Just relax, and get some sleep! *chuckles*



Higgs_235.jpg

It was "Casual Friday" at their school, the one day they didn't have to bother with those cumbersome uniforms. But, the latest chatter wasn't about Casual Friday, it was the announcement of the Spring Prom.

Justin: I think I'd rather go see 'Romeo & Juliet'.


Higgs_236.jpg

Everyone was ogling each other in hopes of finding dates.

Katrina: Hmm, they're going to be in the same boat as me. I wonder if I should just ask one of them?


Higgs_237.jpg

Justing: So, do you wanna go to prom?

Atlas: Are you kidding? We'll get our asses kicked!


Higgs_238.jpg

Back to reality, as the students scramble back to class.

Ginger: Are we still on for practice later? By the way, did you hear, prom's coming up. *giggles*


Higgs_239.jpg

Ms. McGaw was thier Science teacher. She didn't take any guff from the students.


Higgs_240.jpg

Ms. McGaw: As I call your name, read me your score.

Atlas: I didn't do my homework.

Ms. McGaw: What was that, Mr. Higgs?

Classmates: Oooh, he's gonna get it!


Higgs_241.jpg

Atlas: I said, I didn't DO my homework!

Ms. McGaw: Congratulations, you just won yourself a trip to detention after school.


Higgs_242.jpg

Ms. McGaw: While I write up Mr. Higgs' detention in the office, I would like the class to turn to page 309 and read chapter 22. And, that includes you too, Miss Newson.

Katrina: I think she's easing up in her age.

Higgs_243.jpg

Ahh, the lunch bell, and not a moment too soon! Seamus hurried ahead so he could shoot a few hoops.


Higgs_244.jpg

An admirer popped in to watch, and congratulated him on his slam dunk.


Higgs_245.jpg

Ginger tried to work up the nerve to ask Justin to prom, while Gavin devised a plan to help his sister out.


Higgs_246.jpg

Seamus quickly gulped down some mac & cheese before the bell.

Seamus: Have you asked anyone to prom yet?

Katrina: No, and if you're asking me, you can kiss my ass!

Seamus: Huh? I was just making conversation, that's all.


Higgs_247.jpg

Love struck, Seamus looked out the window for the mystery girl in the gym.

Seamus: I didn't even get her name. Geez, why did I have to get all bashful like that? I really hate myself sometimes.


Higgs_248.jpg

This is their block class, it consists of math, language arts, and history.

Atlas: Seamus held me up, I hope I'm not late.


Higgs_249.jpg

Justin: Can I copy your paper? I left my math book at home.

Atlas: I was going to ask you the same thing.


Higgs_250.jpg

Atlas: Well, looks like you'll be joining me in detention.


Higgs_251.jpg

Lance saw Seamus with the mystery girl in the gym at lunch, and decided to give him a hard time about it.

Lance: I saw you with Kathy today. Are you bonin' her, or what?

Ginger: *snorts*

Seamus: Who? WHAT?!

Seamus (to himsef): So, her name's Kathy...


Higgs_252.jpg

Afterschool, Atlas pulled Justin aside in the gym.

Atlas: Come here, we have a few minutes.

Justin: I think I hear someone, ha ha.


Higgs_253.jpg

Boy, it's a good thing Lance had his nose burried in the rule book!


Higgs_254.jpg

Gavin playing with his balls before practice.


Higgs_255.jpg

This has to be the most unlikely choice of candidates for the boys & girls basketball teams. Poor turnout this year?


Higgs_256.jpg

Coach Okuma: You're late! Come with me, we're going to the library.


Higgs_257.jpg

There they played an intense game of Oregon Trail. It wasn't exactly homework, but it was educational, so it passed.


Higgs_258.jpg

Justin: Let's talk about prom. I say we get fake dates.


Higgs_259.jpg

Atlas: Or, we could just say we're not going, and go stag at the last minute. Justin liked this idea!


Higgs_260.jpg

Ginger threw her arm out, cutting practice short for the day. Lance was a gentleman, and accompanied her to the office.

Lance: I warned you. It's the way you throw, you torque your arm all out of wack. Keep it up, and you'll probably need surgery somewhere down the road.


Higgs_261.jpg

The boys flocked to Candice like flies.
Pierce: I was wondering, if you would like to, maybe, go to prom with me? No pressure or anything.

Candice: That's very sweet of you, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to decline.


Higgs_262.jpg

Candice: Justin, I've been looking all over for you! I wanted to ask you something.

Justin: Hold the phone! This doesn't happen to be about prom, does it?


Higgs_263.jpg

Candice: Oh, come on. Won't you go with me, please?

Justin: Sorry, it's nothing personal, just not my thing.


Higgs_264.jpg

He didn't get two feet away when he was approached again.

Gavin: My sister is kind of shy, but she really wants to ask you to the prom.

Justin: Ew, no... I don't do school dances!


Higgs_265.jpg

Seamus helped out in the cafeteria after school for credits as part of his senior marketing class.


Higgs_266.jpg

As he was cleaning up, he saw her looking at the flyers, it was Kathy Miller.

Kathy: Oh, hello, long time no see. You're here awfully late.

Seamus: I work here. Want a grand tour of the place?


Higgs_267.jpg

Kathy adored his dorkiness.

Seamus: This... this is where the magic happens.


Higgs_268.jpg

Seamus: Actually, I was wondering if you had a date for the prom?

But, the magic fizzled away when Heath Butler butted in.

Heath: Back off, you douche, she's mine!


Higgs_269.jpg

Seamus: Oh, I didn't know you had a boyfriend.

Kathy: Don't worry about him. He's my ex-boyfriend, he thinks he owns me.


Higgs_270.jpg

With that, he kissed her hand gently.

Seamus: So, I guess it's a date then?

Kathy: I would be delighted.
