"Lena! Wake up if you want to get to school on time!" my mom yelled.
"I'm Up!" i yelled back. Upset that i had to wake up from a weird but interesting dream.
"I got up from my bed, I was so tired that i almost fell of my platform. It was dark in my room because my curtains were closed. I went to my window and pull them open. The sun shone directly in my face making me put my hands up to block my face. My eyes flew open as i noticed that i was wearing only my bra and boxer shorts. I ran out of vew of the window. I peeked back and sighed in relief when i realized Logans blinds were closed.
I got into the shower and washed my hair. My mom and Bryce had already left and i had to figure out how to find the bus stp myself. I took out the uniforn hanging in my closet. I put on the red ruffled skirt , dark blue sweater vest, prep school dark blue blazer, knee high red socks and my combat boots. Maybe they wont call me out on my shoes. I pulled my hair into a ponytail and left my room.
I went downstairs had a bagel wth cream cheese. I grabbed my messenger bag, camera , binder, notebook and left the house. My mom told me the bus stop was a 10 minute walk down the street. I walked until i seen a school bus. I got on and found an empty seat in the back. The students were staring at me as i sat down.
When we arrived at the school i walked through the entrance. The school was huge, there were students i uniforms everywhere. I nervously walked up to a teacher and asked them where the main office was.
"Down the hall and to the right" the teacher directed me. I walked ino the main office and approached the secretary.
"Hello" i said, "My name is Lena Masons and today is my first day" . She gave me a serious glare and starting typing something on the computer. She printed something out and signed it.
"This is your class schedule" she handed it to me "Your first period class is English Honors, which is also your homeroom classroom and you have third period lunch". she pressed the intercom.
"Juliana Sanders please come to the main office" she said. She looked at me and said "Wait a minute". I listened and took a seat.
Five minutes later a girl with long red curly hair came into he office. She had a cheery smile on her face, and greeted the secretary with a wave.
"Hello Mrs. Jenkins" said the girl.
"Hello Juliana" said the secretary.
"This is Lena Masons she new to Miami Prep" explained Mrs. Jenkins. Juliana looked me up and down giving a judgemental nod of approval.
"Hi" she said, giving me a gentle hug.
"She has the same schedule as you so i thought you could show her around school" Mrs. Jenkins.
"Okay" juliana said cheerfully.
We walked out the office and down the hall. As we walked juliana was greeted by almost everyone in the hallway.
"So" she said as we walked, " where did you move from?"
"New York" i replied.
"How exciting" she exclaimed.
We went into a classroom and juliana introduced me to some of her friends.
"Everyone this is Lena, Lena this is everyone" she said. I waved a hello and took a seat in the back of the classroom.
I heard some whispering and automatically thought people were talking about me. I took out my sketch pad and started drawing. The bell to start first period rang and the teacher took attendance.
"Looks like ha ve a new student today class" said the teacher Mr. Byron.
Juliana stood up.
"Her name is Lena and she moved down here from New York" she said.
I could have introduced myself i thought. Everyone looked at me and i waved. I hate being the new girl.
Class started and while i was taking notes i heard someone come into the classroom.
"Glad you decided to join us today Mr. Materson" said Mr. Bryon sarcastically. "Take a seat" he demanded.
I looked up and to my surprise it was Logan. He gave me a big flashy smile and i looked away shyly. It was bad enough i dreamt about him last night and now hes in my class.
He headed towards the empty seat next to me.
"Hey" he said sitting down.
"Hey" i said back.
I went back to taking notes and i could feel him looking at me for a while longer before directing his attention towards the teacher. During a pop quiz , that i obviously didnt have to take, i looked at logan and he looked so cute focusing on the quiz. He must have sensed me looking at him because he looked up. When i turned quickly i heard him laugh.
The bell ending the period rang and i got up to ask juliana where to go. Logan stopped me.
"Are you going to be this shy forever? he asked. I was confused.
" What do you mean?" i asked.
"I know you saw me changing last night" he looked away shyly when he said it. I felt my cheeks burn up as i blushed.
"Dont worry though" he said , " We are even".
"Huh?" i said curiously. He looked at me , smiled, and walked away.
I thought about it for a second and realized that he must have seen me this morning when i opened my curtain. Juliana came over to me.
"How do you know Logan Materson?" she asked accusingly.
"He lives next door to me" i replied.
"Oh, Okay then" she said , then cheerfully led me out of the classroom.
Throughout the school day i would continue to see Logan. I saw him third period, at lunch, and in gym class. I learned that he was captain of the football team. He looked extremly handsome in his school uniform.
When school was over i was at my locker when Logan came over to me.
"Hey, how are you getting home?" he asked.
"The bus" i said with a 'no big deal' attitude.
"C'mon, ill give you a ride" he said. I hesitated. I can see that he was very popular in school and a lot of girls drooled over him. I didnt want anyone to get the wrong idea seeing us together. Plus last night i violated him with my eyes, and he caught me.
"Um," i said.
He grabbed my hand. "C'mon" he said chuckling. Girls gave me dirty looks as he held my hand walking out the school.
" Can you let go of my hand?" i asked
"Oh, yeah. Sorry". He let go of my hand. We walked over to a BMW sports car. He opened the door for me and i got in. He started the car and we drove off. He looked at me and shook his head.
"What?" i asked.
"Why are you so shy today?" he asked, "Is it because i caught you checking me out?" he laughed.
"I wasnt checking you out" i said offensively. It was a lie but i didnt want to give him he satisfaction.
"Whatever, i saw you this morning and im not being akward" he said. He has a point but it didnt help that he keeps pointing it out.
' Okay" i said, " the akwardness ends now" i said. He smiled and pumped his fist in victory. I smiled in response.
We pulled up into his driveway and i got out the car.
" So i was thinking," he said, " Dont you think it would be easier if we drove to school together in the mornings?" he finished "It just seems like a waste of time for you to take the bus when i live next door". He had a point.
" Okay," i said and smiled. "Heres my number", i took out a piece of paper and wrote my number on it. I had just got a new phone with a florida area code. I didnt even have calebs number anymore.
"Ill call you later tomorrow morning then" he said.
"Alright" i replied.
"Remember to close you curtains tonight, i heard theres some girl who likes peeping into windows" i said and laughed.
" See , that wasnt so akward" he said and went into his house.
I said hey to to my mom and helped bryce with his homework.
I finished my homework and ate dinner. I put on my pajama shorts and a loose tee and sat on my bed.
I heard my phone ring and answered it.
"Hello?" i answered.
"Hey its Logan" he said.
"Oh hey whats up?" i asked.
" nothing i just saw that your light was still on and i wanted to wish you goodnight" he said softly.
"Oh, Ok . Goodnight Logan" i said
"Goodnight Lena" he said.
We hung up the phone and i walked over to my window and looked across at logans room just as his light turned off.
I got into my bed and drifting off to sleep thinking about todays events. I always went to bed thinking of Caleb, but tonight i couldnt stop thinking about Logan.
