"Damn!" I said as i got out of bed and took a look at myself in the mirror. "It's 9am and im still in my PJ's. How awesome!" I told myself, in a sarcastic tone.
I rushed to the bathroom and took a quick shower. I wanted to stand under the warm water for a little longer but i knew i would be late if i did so. I changed into a plain red t-shirt and black jeans. Perfect. Taking a quick look at the watch I realized that i still had 15 more minutes. I straightened me brown, light hair, which people thought was 'pretty'. I always thought the opposite. My hair has always been a trouble for me. But, since my mom loved my hair so much, I had no option but to deal with it.
Now that i was done with my hair, i grabbed my cell phone and texted my dad.
When are we leavin,daddy?
Yeah, it's quite weird, texting your dad who is in the room just next to your's, but thats just how i am.
In 5 minutes, honey. You ready for THE BIG DAY? :)
Big day. I sighed as i read the last 3 words. The 'Big Day' kinda scared me. It was my first day of high school. From what i had seen in movies, high school was all about bullies, mean people and sluts. If you were one of them, high school would be easy for you otherwise, Hasta Lavista (goodbye) to haapy life. Unfortunately, I was none of them. The worst i could do was kill an ant. I could never be meanto any one except spencer, my elder brother. HE was the most annoying person i've ever known. He has the ability to annoy anyone to death without any efforts.
Taking a last look at myself, I grabbed my cell phone and ran down stairs for breakfast. After staing at the dinig table for 5 seconds, I decided that i wasn't hungry. So i skipped breakfast even thoug h i knew that mom would be quite pissed. She never lets me go anyhwere in the morning without having breakfast.
I saw dad rushing down stairs and out the door. I glanced at my watch and realized that it was 9:35 am. We were supposed to leave at 9:30 am. Since it was my first day, the principal had allowed me to take the first two periods free adn take a look around. I was sure that i would miss the first period. There was no way I was goin to miss the second one as well.
I grabbed my bag and darted out of the door. I got in the car and realized that Spencer was already in there. UGH. I had seen his face right in the morning. M y day was goin to be a bad one.
"Look! The sleeping beauty is finally up! YAYIE!" Spencer said, in a sarcastic tone.
"Spencer, today is my first day of high school as a freshmen and i dont want you to ruin it" I replied as i stared out of the window.
The weather was perfect. Summer was finally leaving as it gave an invitation to autumn. The light wind was blowing, making the poppies in our garden dance. The day didn't seem so good, but i had a feeling that high school won't be that bad after all.
"Sweety, are you listening?" Dad's words snapped me out of my thoughts.
"Uh, sorry, I ....... I got a littledistracted."
"its ok. I was just saying that I dont want you taking your grades lightly. You are in high school now and it's high time you start taking studies more seriously."
"Sure dad." This was like the millionth time i was hearing something ike that. My dad was what you call a perfectionist. For him the only 'good grades' are straight A's. Pleasing him is not an easy thing but i never displeased him.
Exactly 12 minutes later I was standing in front of my high school. It didnt look as bad as I thought it would . As I walked towards the entrance i felt a wave of optimism pass through me. I entered the main building. The reception was at my right. I started walking towards the reception and accidentally bumped into something.
"Oh, I'm so-" I was cut off
"Can't you see where you are going? You, Lil missy, need a lesson. Well, I dont remember seeing you around here before. Are you a new student?" The girl i bumped into, seemed like a bully but i didn't want to make assumptions already.
"Uh, ya. I'm a freshman. I just joined."
:Expected. Since you are new around here, et me tell you my rules."
My rules. Yea that was enough to confirm that she was a bully. The optimism that had fiulled me a few seconds ago, was now gone.
It's going to be 4 long years i thought to myself
