I can't believe that it's first day of school in Florida. I've been
here for the last 2 weeks settling in and have managed to make a
few friends, with the girl next door Sophie. This is the time to
dress to impress, I mean if you are starting a new school, you
kinda want to, but you have to check out the cliches, the
competition and of course the boys! I am really excited but I am so
nervous, I mean I'm the London girl going to school in America, big
change! I take one last look at myself in the mirror, it's hot
today so I've chosen some deniem short, shorts and a white lacey
top which sit nicely on my hips, then my wedges. I pick up my bag
filled with books, my make up bag, girly supplies and a change of
clothes ready to go meet Sophie outside. 'Hey Soph,' I say giving
her a hug. 'Hi Brooke, you ready for school?' Soph asks as we start
walking. 'Honest? No, I'm nervous like hell!' I say laughing.
'Don't worry, I'm sure all the boys will love your accent!' Soph
teases as we cross the road to meet up with the rest of the gang.
There's Lexi who's the gossipy one, Madison the bubbly one and
Michela the popular one. 'Hey Brooke,' they all say when they see
me, I smile and they all hug me. 'Let's go guys, I want to check
out the new hot guys in school,' Soph whines we all laugh and walk
to school faster. We get to "high school" or as I call it secondary
school and it is massive. Back home in Chelsea our school seems
tiny compared to here. Soph and I make our way to the reception
area to pick up my schedule for class, and somehow Sophie managed
to get me to have the same classes as her. We make our way to
homeroom and I take a seat beside Sophie at the paired desks. So
far everything is great people are talking to me, telling me my
accents cute, I'm loving Florida. 'Anyway you see that guy who just
walked in, in the white shirt, yeah that's Nick Santiago, stay away
from him, girls watch him from a distance,' Sophie says looking at
him. Ok this guy was hot! He's obviously Hispanic with his surname
being Santiago, Spanish guys are hot! Anyway he's really tan, has
this amazing brown eyes with hints of green, the perfect jawline
and his lips, oh I could so kiss those lips.... What am I thinking
I don't even know they guy and he looks like a total bad boy, every
girl wants a bit of bad boy. Then the homeroom teacher Ms Russon
comes in to register us and then lets us make our way to class.
'Let's go, I'll show you your locker and then we'll go to history,'
Soph says as we walk down the corridor. We stop at my locker and
you never guess who's is next to mine, Nicks. He looks down at me
then looks away at Sophie, 'Hey Soph,' Nick says closing his
locker. 'Hi Nick, this is Brooke, you know the girl from England I
was telling you about,' Soph says looking at him with a smile.
'Hi,' I say as he looks at me, he turns away to face Sophie.
'Anyway, I'm still coming over later right?' Nick asks leaning
closer towards Soph. 'Yeah, you still picking me and Brooke up?'
Soph asks placing a hand on his chest. 'Gladly,' He says looking at
me before walking away out of school. I look at Sophie and raise an
eyebrow, 'What happened to watch him from a distance?' I ask as we
link arms and make our way to History. 'I've known Nick since I was
12, yeah I still think he's hot,' Sophie says giggling. So far I'm
liking school, but I think that at the moment from the way Nick's
been acting towards me, he seems like a bit of a jerk.
