Before... Part 1

  "Fight! Fight! Fight!"
  It was all I heard as I fought with Belle. I was punching her, she was punching me. At one point, I think I broke a nail and got a purple eye.
  You know what? Let me start from the beginning.
  It all started that morning. I was in driver's Ed and the most talented driving instructor at our school was giving me the test. He sipped on his coffee cup and I put my hands on the wheel.
  "Now, I will drink me coffee while you drive. If I spill, you fail. If you drive smoothly, you pass," the teacher said. I nodded confidently and began driving.
  Now, that wasn't very interesting, so I'm just gonna fast forward a bit. Let's see... Ah, yes! I passed and got out the car. There, I was met with Belle. She had her arms crossed and a scowl. Others were usually intimitated by her, but not me. We had been friends once, before... everything. I knew her and I knew she wasn't about to beat me up right now.
  "You cut the line," Belle told me.
  "What line?" I asked.
  "I was supposed to take the test before you," Belle answered.
  "Well, I'm sorry for being here on time," I said with my sweetest sarcastic voice possible.
  Belle groaned and opened the door to the driver's seat to take her test. I shrugged and took off the candy wrapper from my lollipop. My phone buzzed and I checked it. It was a notification about my favorite spy show. The next episode contained stolen data. Nice!
