○•Chapter 1: Dream to Nightmare•○
The cool wind, shuffles the crispy, warm colored leaves. I watched it, as the leaves gently falls from the sky. "Why did you call me out here?" His eyes were unable to look into mine; he had a nervous smile across his face and his cheeks were a perfect shade of rosy pink. He's going to say it!"I love you Emily. Would you b-be my girlfriend?" He stuttered. I had a crush on him ever since I first met him; how can I not say yes!?
"Yes; a million times yes!" I wrapped him around my arms and he swings me around; making me feel dizzy.
"Emily?" he whispers into my ear.
"Yeah?" I couldn't help but smile; this is just too much for me! He takes a step forward and for a second, the whole world freezes before me. He just kissed me! Okay, total fan girl moment! As his warm and soft lips touch mine, its as if time stopped and we weren't able to stop. I hope this is not a dream; I really hope not. I don't want this to end. His tongue lingers in my mouth, making me swirl inside.
"Wake up, you sleepy head! You're going to be late." I heard someone say. What?? That voice sounds somewhat familiar. Where have I heard it before? Oh well, who cares! I'm having the time of my life right now and nobody is going to interfere!Nobody!
But thensomeone slaps me in the head. I immediately rubbed my head. No matter how much I wanted to continue kissing him, it just hurts too much. "Ow! What the heck?!" I screamed.
"What's wrong? Emily look out!" Abruptly, a huge wave of water washed me away from him and I screamed at the top of my lungs; screaming for help. All of a sudden, It was pitch dark. What? Was it all a dream?? My eyes popped open. I saw my brother by the side of my bed; holding out a bucket. He was wearing his grey abercrombie & fitch t-shirt; matched with a dark blue, cargo shorts. Well, I think. I wasn't really sure because my vision was quite blurry.
"What just happened??" I ask confusingly; I was still rubbing my head. Wait, why is he holding a bucket? Forget that, what's he even doing in my room?! That isverysuspicious. I straighten my back.Squish.Hm, is it just me or does my bed feel a little soggy? That's weird. I don't remember having a water bed.
"What do you mean, what happened? You were asleep dumbass." he rolled his eyes. I look around the room; seeing my whole bed wet. Oh my gosh, don't tell me he... So that's why he has a bucket! That punk!
"Haha, you just notice now?" He throws his head back; laughing like crazy. That bastard, he's going to get it.
"Cameron!" I stood up; a rage of steam heating inside me. He better run or else he's going to get it! I pushed my wet blanket to the side. Ugh, its not comfortable having your clothes and bed wet. Its such a yucky feeling.
"Oh, I am so scared! Haha!" He runs out of the door; still laughing. What's wrong with him?
"Shut up, Cameron!" I screamed and all I heard was laughter from the hallway. I rolled my eyes. "Never!" He shouted. I twitched my eye. I can't live with him anymore! He's always messing up my things and teasing me around. I'm not 6 anymore; he can't just boss me around.
"It's okay Emily. Don't get all crazy because of your immature brother." I told myself.
I stepped into my bathroom andtook a glance at my reflection in the mirror; my dark chocolate, brown hair was so frizzy and tangled. I know I'm not the prettiest girl in the world but right now I may just be theugliest.That is how unattractive I look right now. I brushed my hair; trying to get the tangles out of it. What time is it? I grabbed my phone from the side of my desk.8:10.No!! I only have like 10 minutes to get ready. I sigh. Better start washing my face or I'll be late.
"MOM! Hurry up!" I scold at her. I only have 3 minutes until the bell rings! It's my first day of high school and I'm going to miss it! Just imagine; walking into class with a thousand eyes watching you; that'll be a nightmare! Okay, maybe I over-exaggerated, but you get what I mean.
"Honey, don't rush me. Can't you see I'm driving?" She makes a turn and Cameron turns around; facing me. Great, what does he want?
"Yeah, so be quiet, Miss. Drama Queen." Cameron says, while sticking out his tongue. I rolled my eyes. He's such a jerk. I still haven't forgiven him for splashing water at me while I was asleep. My eyes glared at him.
"So, are you ready for your first day of freshmen year?" My mom asks me; as she grips on to the steering wheel. Man, I can't wait until I get my license. It'll be sweet to drive my mom's car; it was a silver BMW van.
"Well, from the looks of it, it doesn't seem like it's going to be THAT great of a day." I sighed again. The only happy moment I'm going to be having today, is the dream! Man, how I wish that kiss was real. Too bad I don't even remember what he looked like because he wascute! Well, dreams are just dreams; you can't expect too much from it. So of course he was cute; dreams are just made up of our own desires.
"I remember my first day of high school, it was awesome." He sticks his tongue at me again. There he goes again; bragging about his life. Aren't the moms usually the ones who do that? I held in my laughter. He was still looking at me; I think I can't hold it in much longer! I bit my lower lip and I was finally able to stop myself. Okay, I've got this all under control.
"Cameron, you just love making my life a living hell, don't you?" I glare at him and he scoffed. It's true!! He does!
"I'm a senior and you're freshmen. You should be showing me some respect here!" He smirked at me. My mouth was left hanging. He's taking the privilege of being a senior; again. I sighed. When will life get any easier for me? When?!
"Oh my god, get me out of here already!" I grabbed my backpack and lunch bag; any minute now I'm willing to jump off this van. I held the handle close to me;any minute now.
"Oh, look at that right on time." My mom smiles at me. Yes! I unbuckled my seatbelt and quickly pushed the door open. I leaped out of the car and breathed in the fresh air. I'm finally here!
"Emily. Your wish just came true. " She chuckles. I slammed the door behind me and threw my bag across my right shoulder.
"Mom, it wasn't really a wish." I rolled my eyes.
"Call it what you want." Cameron says, while walking his way through the doors. He's just going to go without me? I thought he was going to help me with my schedule...
"Hey! You ditcher! Come back here!" He sticks out his tongue and runs through the door; looking like an immature kid. I shake my head. What did I do to deserve a brother like him? Why couldn't I just have a older sister? At least she'll be more mature thenhim.
"Have a great day, honey." She gives me a kiss on the cheek and I nodded. She steps into her silver BMW, van and drives out of the road. I sigh. I can't wait to get my license and be able to drive her car one day. It even have cup holders! I shake my head. I shouldn't be standing here staring into space; I have to get to class!
I stare at the doors to my new school and read the words that hung in front of the school:Jefferson high school. It's finally time for what I've been waiting for:high school. It's supposed to be one of the most memorable times of my life; I wonder what kind of people I'll meet here. Tension was building up inside me. I can't do this; but I have to go in there. Do I want to end up being a hobo? I sighed and checked my watch:8:48; two more minutes until the bell rings. I guess this is it. I push the doors open.
It's not my first time at this school, so I wasn't that amazed. There were three vending machines lying by the wall and on my right there was the office. The library was right beside the attendence office; at first I was surprised that they even had an attendence office. In middle school, you just give the attendence to the office. I guess the office doesn't have enough people to check the attendences so they have a separate office for it. There was a banner hanging from the stairs saying: "Welcome Wildcats, to Jefferson High!" So we're the wildcats. I nodded my head and took a look at my schedule.
English Hrm: 258
Great! It's on the second floor. There was a big crowd of people surrounding the stairs. Oh no, I'm going to be late. How am I going to get through that? I took a deep breath and pushed my way through the crowd. People kept on pushing me back and yelling: "Hey!!" but I was able to get through the stairs in one piece. Thank goodness too; I thought I was going to die out there. If I have to do this every day, I think I'll die before I even hit 18!
Oh great! There goes the bell!! I'm going to be late!
I dashed through the hallways and found a door near the end. Maybe that's it. I open the door, hoping this is the right class. But then, I saw a guy sitting in a chair; strumming on his guitar. What? I never applied for guitar class? I cocked my head. Am I in the right room?
He had light brown hair; with slanted bangs. Wow, his hair looked surprisingly soft. What conditioner does he use? His eyes were also unique looking; I couldn't really tell what colour they were though.. He was wearing a dark brown, leather jacket and black jeans. His legs were crossed and he was sitting there; looking very relaxed.
"What the fuck. You're not Mr. Richard." His scoffed at me. Is he talking to me? Who'sMr. Richard?Of course he is! You're the only one in here!A voice in my head said.
"O-Oh I'm so sorry!" How can I not see this coming! I took a step back and checked the door number.258. Yeah, this is the right room, but why is there a guy strumming on his guitar in English class??
"Haha, it's alright. Are you looking for the English class?" he asks me. I looked at him and raised my eyebrow. It's almost as if he just read my mind.
"Yeah, how did you know?"
"Because I'm just that smart" he gave me a wide smile. Wow, cocky much?
"Seriously?" I raised my eyebrows at him.
"The English class was supposed to be in this room, but Mr. Richard wanted to have the bigger classroom since his class was bigger. It was announced a while ago but I guess you were either not listening or late." He smirked at me.
"Ah, I see... Then where is the English class now??" I asked.
"358." he replied; still strumming on his guitar. I wanted to ask him if there was a guitar course but I really had to go.
"Thanks!" I ran out of the room.358.I just have to remember that once I get to the third floor....
"This day cannot get any worse." I said to my friend, Lily. I slammed my head against the wall. I can't help it; I just hate being in the center of attention.
"Chill, Emily. It's okay. You even got there before Mr. Lerance arrived. Nobody even cares." Lily has been my BFF ever since grade 1; I don't know what I'll do without her. We did everything together, and that means I do nothing without her. That's what true friendship means: staying loyal and trusting each other.
"But still! It was so embarrassing walking in class and having everybody's eyes on me." Just thinking about it makes me cringed. It was terrifying; it wouldn't be as bad if it was on a normal school day but it wasn't. That's what makes it worst!
"Hey guys! How's your first day going so far?" Alyssa says while she plops her hands onto our shoulder; she scares me. Where did she came from? She just pops out of nowhere; its just scary. I sigh. .
"Ugh, I don't even want to talk about it." I say, looking annoyed. Her face brightened. I guess she had a good time.
"Oh, I know what will brighten up your day." She said with a smile. My eyes widened. Somehow, I have a feeling it's not something good.
"What?" I said looking at her. I'm looking forward to this.
"There's going to be a party at Timmothy's house after school at 8. Want to come with?" she asks us. A party!? My eyes sparkled with excitement. I've never been to a high school party before! But then again, I just started high school; like literally a few hours ago.
"Oh my god! Yes! Who doesn't want to go?" I jumped with glee. Imagine how many people there will be. I can't believe I'm going to my first high school party! Just thinking about it makes me happy!
"Whoa, Emily calm down there. People are looking at you weirdly." I turned around; seeing everyone's eyes on me. Oh she's right, they are looking at me...I blushed.Déjà vu.
"Yeah I should." I turned back to face lily and Alyssa. I hope my face wasn't red; I hate that I blush way too easily. Embarrassing things always happens to me and I'm sure this won't be my last one for the day.
"Anyways, what should we wear to the party? There's going to be boys there and I need to dress to impress!" Alyssa says happily.Boys.Oh my god. There's going to be boys there! What am I going to do?? I can barely talk to boys! I definitely need to dress to impress! Even though I won't be talking to them, I still need to look nice in front of them.
"Want to come over to my house then? You know, to get ready." Lily
asked. I guess I should go, since I've no idea on what to
"Sure! It's been a while since I've been to your house." I smiled. Those were the good times; smiling and laughing while I stayed over at her house. It seriously was fun.
"Yeah, you always come over." She glares at me and I backed away from her. Wow, I can't go to my friend's house? She makes it sound like it's a crime.
"What? I can't spend some quality time with my friend?" I shot back. She glares at me and I glared back. Wow someone's being snappy today.
"Come on guys; stop." Alyssa pushes us apart. Our eyes still on each other, but my eyes were starting to get tired so I was the first one to drop it and she snickers. My poor eyes. I'm not going to ruin them like her.
"Now, we have a party to think about!" She reminds us. We both nodded our head. Even though she's the one who started it...
"Well it's time for class. Bye guys!" Alyssa skips her way to the stairs. We both waved goodbye. Wow someone seems really happy. Am I the only one who had a bad day today? I sigh. I guess I am...
"She seems really excited about the party." Lily says. I laughed. It's kind of funny though.
"Yeah, I know right." I shake my head.
"What do you have next?" Lily asks me. I don't remember. I'll just check my schedule.
"Wait." I pulled out my schedule from my pockets and unwrap it open. I scanned through it; looking for period 4. Oh there it is!
Period 4: Phys. Ed. Mrs. Sinclaire
"Uh, I have Gym next." I'm just going to ignore the fact that it says Phys. Ed. I've been calling it gym ever since I was 5 and I'm not stopping now.
"I do too!! Yay, we have gym together too!" She smiles happily.Not only do I have English with her, but I also have Gym. What more can I ask for?This year is definitely going to be one of my best! And yet, I was so worried that I wouldn't have any classes with her but I guess I was wrong. She holds out her arm.
"Come on, let's go and change." I linked through her arm and we skipped our way to the gym.
