Welcome to 9 Serene Dr. Weaverville, North Carolina, this is where Addison Blake lives. Addison is a relatively small girl, with beautiful blonde hair and pink tips, with the most beautiful ocean blue eyes. She is 16 years old and a sophomore at Paradise High School, where she is on the honor roll and a valedictorian. Her best friend is Abigail Lane. Now Abigail or Abby for short, is just a little taller than Addison, she has long brown hair and green eyes, she is also 16 and a sophomore. Addison and Abby have been friends since first grade, they were neighbors, then at the end of first grade Abby moved, they thought they would never see each other again but little did they know that she moved right down the street to a better but cheaper house, they have been friends since. They go to school with Addison’s boyfriend, Gabe Evans, Gabe who is only a few months older than Abby and Addison, is 17. Gabe and Addison have been together for three years, and Addison has never been happier.


On Monday morning Addison is waiting for Gabe to come to pick her up for school, seeing that he is the only one who can drive he takes Addison and Abby to school and home every day. As he pulls up she gets in the car and goes to kiss him on the cheek but he pulls away from her before she can. ‘Oh-kay that was weird I wonder what is wrong I’ll have to ask him later, but not now because we are already at Abby’s house’ Addison thought. 

“Hey Gabe, Hey Addi” Abby said, she calls her Addi because it makes their names similar.

“Hey, Abby,” they both said at the same time.

The ride to school was very awkward. When they got there Abby went off on her own which meant Addi can talk to Gabe.

“Hey Gabe, can i ask you a question?” she said

“Yes of course.” He answered 

“Why did you avoid my kiss this morning?” she asked.

“Oh yeah that” he stopped “ Look Addi we need to talk, this is not easy to say but here we go” she looked at him confused “I want to break up be-” He was interrupted “WHAT?” She yelled, “Why? What did I do?”

“Nothing it’s just that i found someone else and i don't feel anything for you anymore I’m sorry Addi” He explained

“ NO, you don't get to call me that, how long?”

“How long what?”

“How long have you been feeling this way?”

“About a month or so. Look I’m so sorry Ad- Addison”

“A MONTH YOU'VE BEEN IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE ELSE FOR A MONTH!!!!!!!!” she yelled, everyone near her turned around to see what was going on. Gabe grabs her shoulders to calm her down.

“NO, NO DON'T TOUCH ME……... GET OFF OF ME YOU CREEP!!!!!” Then she smacked him in the face as hard as she could. Then ran off crying, everyone looked at Gabe like he was a creep. She kept running until she found a bathroom. A few minutes later Abby comes in.

“Addi, sweetie are you in here?” she asked. Addi came out of the stall still crying.

“Oh my gosh, what happened?” Abby asked

“Gabe broke up with me and said he was in love with another girl for a month or so.” 

“EXCUSE ME?” she yelled.

“Calm down okay, i-I’ll get over it he is just a guy,” she said in between tears.then she looked down. “Besides we all knew it wouldn't last forever,” she said and looked up to see that Abby was gone. She quickly ran out of the bathroom just in time to see Abby just walking up to Gabe. ‘Oh no this is gonna be bad’ she thought.

“JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?” Abby yelled at him.

“Oh shoot,” he said

“How could you do such a thing?” Abby asked a little calmer after seeing Addison.

“Look I explained everything to Addison. I just don't love her anymore. I love someone else. So please leave me alone.” Gabe said.

“Yeah by the way who is it?” Addison asked out of nowhere.

“Oh uhh well you see….” he paused and looked at Abby “I’m in love with Abby,” he said.

Addison looked at Abby then Gabe. 

“Have you too been-”

“No-no-no. I would never Addi i am never with him alone.”

“Don't worry Addison, we never happened. Just that when she hung out with us she just seemed so perfect.”

Abby walks up to him.

“You are a freaking idiot thinking i would go out after breaking up with my best friend.” then she slapped him in the face (the same spot that Addison hit) then she grabbed her wrist and walked away “come on Addi we are going home,” she said

As Abby and Addison walked out of the school to go home. They were just getting off school property Addison ripped her wrist away from Abby.

“ Abby, what is going on here?” Addison asked.

“Addi what do you mean?” Abby asked.

“I mean that he would’ve told you if he was crushing on you because that is the way he is. As in he can’t keep a secret. So did you know that he liked you?”Addison explained.

“Addi, I-i, okay yes I knew but i told him that i don't have the same feelings for him so he should drop it. He said he would drop it, so i didn't see a need to tell you.” Abby explained

“ So you lied to me?”

“What no never.”

“Yeah well, you did because you said that you are never alone with him, but you had to have been alone with him for him to tell you. Right?” Addison asked.

“Well Ummm-” Abby was trying to say.

“ What I thought so how am i supposed to believe that you didn't do anything,” Addison said

“But we-”

“I don't want to hear it. I'm going back to class and as of right now I don't want to talk to you anymore.” Addison said.

“Addi please wait and listen to me,” Abby said.

“First of all my name is Addison to you. Second of all, go on a date with Gabe for all I care. And third of all, there is no need to explain to me i am done with both of you.”Addison said.

Addison then walks back in for the rest of the school day. After school, she called her mom to pick her up from school but her mom didn’t answer, so she just walked home. It wasn't that far but she hasn't walked to school since freshman year. When she got home, she saw her mom across the street at a house for sale.

“Mom, I called you, why didn't you pick up? And what are you doing here? No one even lives here.” Addison said.

“Oh sorry hun my phone is in the house. And someone bought the house, I was talking to them. They have a son your age, maybe you can help him find some friends. I think even Gabe will like him.” she said.

“Uhm, actually Gabe broke up with me today” she explained

“Oh, I’m so sorry honey. Do you need anything?” her mom asked

“No mom, I'm fine,” she said

Then out of nowhere a tall boy walks out. He has black hair and gray eyes. He is very handsome. Addison couldn't help but stare, her heart began to flutter. He walks up to her with a smile.

“Hi, I'm James Evans, my mom told me to come out and introduce myself. May I ask your name?” he said.

“ Of- c-course, I'm Addison Blake, what grade are you in?” Addison asked

“Oh I’m a sophomore, what about you?” he asked back

“Oh, i am also a sophomore. Maybe i can show you around” she said

“I would like that very much. Actually, I was going to go get coffee, could you maybe show where I can go?”

“Yeah sure, when?”

“I was just about to leave if you don't mind”

“ yeah sure, I’ll see you later mom”

As they walked into town to find the coffee shop, on their way Addison decided to point things out. When they finally arrived at the coffee shop they ordered and sat down at a table.

“So are you gonna tell me about yourself, James?” Addison asked.

“Well what do you want to know?” he said with a smirk 

“You know the normal stuff, what are you into, hmm are you single, what is your favorite subject in school?” Addison asked fast hoping he didn't understand the second question.

“Okay, i will answer in order, 1. Reading and just hanging with my friends

2. Yes and 3. Math. How about you, same questions?” he said smiling

“Oh umm i love to draw and yes and art of course,” she answered

“Oh so you are single?” he said

“As of today, yes I am. My boyfriend just broke up with me today,” she said

“And why would someone be so stupid to leave you?”

“Well, you see he told me he has been in love with someone else for a month now and it turned out that it was my best friend.”

“Wow what a jerk, who would ever want to leave someone like you?”

“I don't know. May I ask why you are single?”

“It's funny where i come from. I'm considered ugly soo, yeah I’ve been single for a while now.”

“Do you like to draw?”

“Oh yes i love to draw i believe i am pretty good at it”

“Oh, you do? Do I ever get to see one mabey?” 

“Oh uhh... I'm not that good no one has ever seen my drawings, not even my mom or my ex-best friend”

“What about your ex?”

“Oh him yeah he has seen one but only because he came up behind me and saw it. I yelled at him afterward though.”

“Oh ok.”

“So what do you like to read?”

“Oh, i just like to read fantasy and romance…” James said shyly

“You like romance omg that kills me,” she said laughing

Addison and James continued to talk for another hour until Addison's mom called for her to come home. When they finally arrived home they decided to exchange each other's phone numbers.

“So.. Ummm do you maybe wanna walk to school tomorrow?” James asked.

“No -”

“Oh ok I'm sorry for asking”

“Hehe i meant i can drive us pick you up at 7:30”

“Deal. can't wait”

As Addison walked into her house her mom popped out of nowhere.

“So how was the coffee?” She asked

“It was fun thanks for asking.” As she was about to continue she was interrupted by her phone. At first, it was Gabe and then Abby. She went to delete them but then James messaged her. She blushed and ran upstairs.
