REAGAN: They’re here
They look calmer thanthey should, given the huge amount of trouble
they’re in. The fact that they’ve been ejected from that private school of
theirs—just two weeks after Grant was killed—should have knocked them
down a notch, but instead the opposite seems to be true.
They are as cocky as ever.
The loud pre-school madness falls to a hush as the boys make their way
down the hall. It’s just like something you would see in the movies.
There’s only one public high school in our small Louisiana town of
Belle Terre. It’s in the old Garden District and is named after William B.
Marshall, who had done something incredible for our town, though I’m not
really sure what it was. Marshall is very regal, with its façade of brick and
stone, surrounded by huge trees that have been here for ages. It’s really one
of the prettiest buildings in town.
But it’s still considered second-rate by those who attend St.
Or St. Bart’s, as it is more commonly known. St. Bart’s is very
exclusive. And very private. I always thought no matter how bad those kids
screwed up, they wouldn’t get in trouble, but apparently, they don’t take
kindly to students who are under suspicion for negligent homicide…even if
their families donate ridiculous piles of money to the school.
There was some question as to whether our school would take them
when they got the boot from St. Bart’s. There was an emergency parents’
meeting over the weekend led by a few vigilant moms who did not want
these boys in our school. But they are in our district, and until they are
actually convicted of a crime, they have a right to attend school.
So here they are.
This has been their school for only a matter of seconds, and yet they
already own it. The four of them walk shoulder to shoulder, most people
moving out of the way to let them pass, dressed in khakis and button-downs
like they’re still accountable to some dress code.
My fists ball at my sides as I try to control the rush of anger that flows
Reagan scoots down to my locker and watches them too, her chin
resting on my shoulder. “Which one do you think did it?” she asks.
I shrug. “Does it matter? It’s not like they’ll get in any trouble even if it
comes out.” The words leave a vile taste on my tongue and an even deeper
hole in my chest.
“Sure they will. They can’t get away with this,” she says. I’m glad she
can’t see me roll my eyes.
“Well, I’m sure we’ll get some good scoop when we get to work this
afternoon,” she adds.
“Yeah, if they got kicked out of St. Bart’s, then something must be
happening with their case. Isn’t the gym at St. Bart’s named after John
Michael’s grandparents?” I ask, nodding toward the boy on the far right side.
“Who knows? But today will be ex-ci-ting!” Reagan says exciting in a
high-pitched singsong voice. And then she leans back against me, hugging
