Selena let out a loud groan, rubbing her temples.
“What’s the matter with you?” Asked Derek.
“I have this school project I have to do with Brandon, but my head is killing me right now…” She took her glasses off momentarily.
“Then don’t do it?” Said Derek with a shrug.
“I have to do it. It’s a school project, remember?” Selena repeated.
“What I meant was don’t worry about it now. Just do it later.”
“How would that help?” She asked.
“Selena, Selena, Selena.” Derek echoed. “It’s called procrastination. Don’t do it until you feel like it!”
Selena gave him a weird look. “That doesn’t sound very productive.”
“That’s the point.” Derek said. “Just listen to me. Have I ever done you wrong?”
“Do you want me to sugar coat the answer?” She asked. “But I guess I’ll try it. I’ll do more harm than good feeling this way anyway.
Two Weeks Later…
Selena and Brandon carted their parts of a project together. Brandon said, “Okay, I think I’ve made mine right. What about yours?”
Selena half chuckled and rubbed her arm. “Well actually…”
Confused, Brandon removed the cover of Selena’s project to reveal it was nothing more than scattered parts and unused tools.
“What the heck do you call this?!” He exclaimed in horror, knowing well they were gonna fail.
“I call it ‘I’m never listening to my brother’s advice again.'”
