I could feel the cool summer breeze blow thru my
hair as I sat in my swing and watched the sun go down. When I
smelled the air I felt stress free. Like there are no problems in
the world I have to worry about. But that one moment was ruined
when I heard my mother say
"Selena come inside before you get a
Why does my mother have to ruin everything!
"Ugh! Why can't I have the life I always
The life I always wanted? That life would be that
my parents were still together and not divorced and still
fighting about whatever the hell they can fight about, I was
still in the popular group with all my friends I miss very much,
I wasn't emo, and everyone would shut up about me and Owen
getting together! I mean come on! Yes he is one of the cutest
boys in our class and yes, we do "click" but I and he could never
I got up from my peaceful state and walked back
inside to my mother on the phone fighting with my father….again.
I walked over to the table where my 5 year old sister, Faith, was
sitting playing with her food.
"Hey kiddo, what's up??"
"Nothing, just wanting mommy and daddy to
"I do too Fay, I do too."
Faith got up and hugged me. I felt sorry for her. In the outside
she acted strong, but in the inside…I knew she felt like shit.
She has been thru so much in her 5 years of life. And none of it
"Come on Fay, Lets go to bed."
I took my sisters hand and walked up to the room that we shared.
It was so plain. White walls, tan floor, two beds, and a
bathroom. How plain could it get?
When I finally got Faith to sleep and I was laying in bed my
phone went off warning me I got a txt message. I looked over to
see who it was from and to my surprise it was Owen. Why would
Owen be txting me?
'Hey Owen, Whatz up?'
'nothing really, just really bored'
'have you talked to Miley any??'
Miley? Why would he ask me about Miley? The ex
girlfriend he hates the most and my…well..I wouldn't say friend,
but almost friend.
'yeah, I talked to her yesterday. Why? Thinking about getting
back together with her??'
'Hell no! She's a stupid blonde like all your friends'
'haha! Yeah, but I'm the dumbest.'
'I could disagree with that.'
Wow, he disagrees that I'm the dumbest out of all of my friends
and me. That's a new one.
I didn't know what to say so I just shut my phone and rolled over
on my side. Wow, he actually thinks I'm smart. Well, kind of
smart anyway. I wonder if….
My phone started going off again. I looked over to see Owen txt
'Do you know what the best song in the world is??'
He's txting me wondering if I know what the best song in the
world is? Something is up with this boy.
'no..is something up?? Cuz you're acting all nice to me.'
'No, nothing is wrong…I gotta go. Time to go to bed. '
There's something up with him. And I'm going to find out.
