Another Jagger skipping school

The unbuttoned front of your white uniform and the disobedient length of your dark hair told me that school rules or walls couldn’t hold you back. Your army of three friends had worship in their eyes – the kind that said they would follow you to worse than a morning’s worth of trouble. You had a nameless triumph in your eyes and a revolution brewing in the thrust of your hip. And, as your mouth twitched with a smirk of certainty, I heard the morning air rage with a call to break free.
