Chapter Two!

"Please tell me that your not keeping this ravishing young woman away from us Enrique, how selfish!" I jumped at the guys voice, it sounded very loud and a lisp added? I wasn't sure. Was it there on purpose, or real? I stayed silent waiting for something bad to happen because with my luck I assumed it would. I looked around though to see the good looking guy from the table with the three girls (who were still looking at us). Enrique laughed; very cute, and said back the good looking guy. "Thank Jonathan, stand in the way of my light why don't you" I think he was teasing the good looking guy- Jonathan. Enrique gestured to me and added.

"This is Erika; moved from France!" I liked the sudden enthusiasm in his voice. I felt something move inside my stomach like a shift or something; not my period a feeling like happy or excited. Also I liked it when he said my name, he sort of drawled it out in his Mexican accent but in a sexy way. Jonathan stood towering slightly over me; Enrique was tall but like so my head came to his shoulder but Jonathan was long and stretched out! He put his hand on my shoulder whilst I fought the urge to shake it off; I'm not so good at physical contact.

"Come! Your with us now Miss Erika I see Enrique has been made your acquaintance but meet Rue, Anya, Caden" All their names were really unique I felt a little left out I did like the name 'Anya', but I loved Enrique name the most though, it was different but in a good way. He made me feel like Paris in the Summer when the whole world was smiling. Oh my Lord. I did not just say that did I? Mama was probably worrying about me, and yet here I was making friends with the English.

She would be so proud of me settling in so well. She didn't give me that diet coke!? I wish I had that diet coke right now; I was so thirsty. Making friends was thirsty work. I looked at the three girls as I sat on top of the table with Enrique pressed quiet close to me as he was near the edge of the desk; I liked him being this close I could feel his body heat through our thin shirts. Anya was pretty, dainty and had bright red hair; mine was like orangey blonde but her's was flaming red! She was wearing one colour also: Red.

She looked like a bold girl, but someone who I'd get along good with. Caden- sat next to her- was wearing mostly yellow with the exception of a green watch and her eyes were a green colour. I liked her eyes. Rue, on the other hand, was scowling at me. She was wearing brown expensive looking clothes and had greasy looking dark brown hair and watery yellowish eyes. I did not like her eyes at all. She kept looking at Enrique then back to me really quickly, I hated her instantly. Jonathan was BLUE! Everything seemed to be denim or the colour of blue; light blue, dark blue, purplish blue and so on.

I think I already mentioned what Enrique was wearing? I couldn't stop looking at him. I found myself blushing again so I cast my eyes down to my Chuck Taylors again. Anya was talking to Rue for a moment then she turned and gave me a big beaming smile. "Say something in French!" She demanded. I stared at her light a rabbit caught in a pair of headlights. Why was she being so rude, was she always like this. Oh Sugar on a cracker! Did they hate me? Why? Had I done something wrong, I should apologise, no but I haven't done anything wrong so why should I say sorry when it wasn't me? "Like what?" I mumbled.

Hey, it's all I got. Caden was looking at me with a friendly encouraging smile, along with Jonathan. But I caught a quick glimpse of Anya and Rue exchanging smirks with each other. Could my day get any worse. I should run out of the room. "Erm...like....English sucks, I love Enrique because he is so amazing and the best person in the world!" Enrique interjected quickly. I think he knew that I was nervous. I was secretly pleased that Enrique had interrupted her because I wanted to run out of the room really badly, just to escape.

I shrugged at them. Mama had taught me to never let others know that your scared because that's how they seek out your weakness and use them against you. Mama is very wise and so I put on a fake brave face and began speaking what Enrique had requested in my best French accent. "Okay. Anglais suce, j'adore Enrique parce qu'il est tellement incroyable et la meilleure personne dans le monde" My laungage was fluent and I loved the French accents I had on my words. It made me feel slightly normal again.

I wanted to make friends so badly, why was it such hard work? I frowned and bit my lip once more out of habit. Enrique brought his hand up to my mouth and put a finger on my lip. I was paralysed, my body felt cold and hot at the same time which was really weird but good. It felt really good. REALLY GOOD. "Don't" He smiled. I took my teeth away from the edge of my lip and tried to stop the smile that dominated my face. Caden pulled the slip of paper out of my hand that held my timetable for the weeks to come, she stared at them and her face broke into a grin.

I liked Caden. She seems like a nice person to be around. "You're in like all my lessons, which is good because we're going to get along just fine. Actually, Enrique is in most of your lessons except Music and Geography but the rooms are close enough to wait outside until we're done" She exchanged an excited smile with Enrique and Jonathan who smiled back in the same way. Rue was scowling at the table and Anya was texting on her phone furiously.

"Speaking of which; Jon I'll see you at lunch, you too An and Rue. Come on Erika let's go to History you coming En?"

"Sure let's go!"

History was really good, I loved my teacher, he was teaching us about WW1 which was my fav topic. It was also sad, especially when I got to the bit about the battle of the Somme. I got to side between Caden and Enrique. Next lesson was English and I wasn't sat next to Enrique or Caden but a nice girl called Lucy. We had an interesting conversation. "Hi" I greeted her pleasantly sitting next to her after my teacher had made a big fuss about me being new. She was probs on her period or something. This is why I liked male teachers better because once a month they don't have a scream-fest at their class.

"Hey there new girl" She had greeted kindly me back. She pulled out the chair for me to it down. She had a nice sort of voice, it was soothing like a doctors voice when their talking to a patient. Kind of like my old doctor who was really nice and he was a family doctor. "I'm Erika, Erika Milestone, from France" I explained to her in case she hadn't heard the English teacher scream at me because I was new in the class. Jesus what did she expect when she got the e-mail a student playing some sort of practical joke on her?

"Sweet! I'm just called Lucy but nice to meet you. I can't believe are in with Enrique and Caden. Have you met Jonathan and the others?!" She sounded really surprised. I frowned at her wondering what on earth she was on about? Although it was completely stupid; I at first thought she knew I liked Enrique and was going to tell everyone in the class with her soothing voice. My heart beat sped up immediately. "What?" I couldn't think of what else to say. Plus I didn't understand her and so hopefully she would explain what the hell she was on about.

"Well, Enrique is really hot and he's nice! Caden and Jonathan are really nice, but it stops there. Anya's always on her phone so she's doesn't care what happens; Rue is a bitch. Stay away from her if you can. She likes the pants of Enrique but, like, who wouldn't? Anyway because Jonathan and Caden flirt constantly she knows that Caden doesn't like him and Anya stays on her phone with whoever she's texting so she obviously doesn't like him. To her your a threat"

"Erm thanks, I guess, for the advice. Do you think he likes me? Enrique I mean" I asked her suddenly very nervous.

"Hells to the yeah, don't look now but he's staring at you at this moment. Look, you seem nice, I want to be your friend okay? Caden seems to like you, friend wise ya'know, so it's all good. Get friendly with Enrique and Caden and you'll be okay" She told me. I nodded at her. I let all she'd said soak in a little. Rue thought of me as a threat because Enrique was acting like a soppy loved up teenager? Still, at least Lucy wanted to be friends with me, and Caden and Enrique. Three friends. Not bad for a mornings work. Nice work Erika. I thought to myself. Nice work.
