Ch. 4 Foundations

The next day at school everything is normal. Lucas ignores me as if I don't exist and misery is my only company. The kiss honestly freaked me out more than anything, althoughmy old feelings came back knocking. Whenhis lips met mine the world stopped. Everything became silent, but as soon as he pulled awayreality camecrashing backdown.This was probably one ofhis games, and I definitely did not want to be the one being played.Our project that is due next week, I will be doing. I am not going to ask him to come by my house again, nevertheless talk to him. It's not hard thing to do, I genuinely like that class and Lucas as Iremember is always being distracted. We always partnered up for projects and instead of actually doing them he would talk endlessly about a movie he'd seen the day before.

One thing has been different tough, that boy--which I recently discovered is named Noah--kept staring at me during French which made me really uncomfortable. He sits in the row in front of me but in the opposite side. Iwould always catch him looking back at me, with a stare that would be used to analyze things. Maybe he was trying to figure out why I was such a freak.

Everyday at lunch I do the same thing, which is read. I sit in different places but Ialways read.When I read, I zone out everything in my life and focus on the book. The book is what I am living at that moment, Isee the things that are written, and in that time when Iread nothing in my real life exists. It's my escape, during the school day of course, Ihave other escapes at home. And well, I hate being interrupted. Right now I'm with Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, Mr. Darcy is asking for her hand in marriage and that's where I want to stay.

"Hey" someonein front of metells me. Iroll my eyes and drag my head up.

"Yes?" I say irritated, and I realize it's that kid. Noah. He is currently sitting in the bench in my table.

"Did I disturb you in some way?" He asks with a stupid smirk.

"Well I wasn't doing anything important" I say dryly and place my book down. Whatever he wantshe better make it fast.

"I can help but notice you're always alone" He says and eyes me curiously.

"Really" I say and look around. "never noticed"

"Why do you hate me?" he asks quickly and patiently awaits my answer.

"I don't hate you" I tell him sighing. "It's just that-"

"You hate anyone that talks to you"

"No. It's not that."

"Do you mind if I hand out with you."

"What" I say flabbergasted.

"I want to be your friend" He says slowly. He ruffles hisbrown shaggy hair thathangs low almost covering the emerald in his eyes.

"Why? I'm not a charity case"

"I know." he says raising his voice. "The people over there" he says and turns to face them for a second "just talk about how I should join a sports team here, or how there's a party this weekend, everything is so hollow. Ilike to talk about that stuff but not every second to my free time. I want something else."

"And you think i can give you that something else?"

"Yes" It was weird being asked to be friends, usually people became friends naturally, but it seemed this guy was eager to do something different.

"I don't know" As an act of nervousness I begin to twirl my hair in my fingers. "I don't do friends"

"Why? Bad friend experience?" he asks me while he looks to what my fingers are doing.

"I guess you can call it that" I say unsurely. I am not going to start and tell him my life story, so I don't expand further. He seems to understand because all he does is nod and does not persist on the subject.

"So, friends?" I nod to his statement and he extends his hand for me to shake. "Hello friend, I'm Noah Carson"

"I'm Jessica Graff" I tell him and shake his hand. His hands are soft and warm making me feel at ease touching him. He smiles and his smile seemed to be contagious because since a long time I smile too.

I can only wonder if this truly is a start to a great friendship, and not to a devastating tragedy. Because I already have one of those.

*Hello! I know it's been long since I updated this story but I finally did hope you guys like:] though I must admit this is a filler, I'm trying to get things started with Noah. Next chapter will be ten times more intersting and lively. Promise:D Thanks for reading!*

*Dreamy sigh* I love the name Noah! So hot! And he seems really nice and relaxed. I love his blunt attitude too, I can see him being the guy who can help her deal with her mucked up depressed life, being like 'Are you depressed? Are you sure? Reall sure' you know? Lol. I love how easy he was asking her to be friends-don't you DARE say it was a dare, I will not forgive you!!!
Lucas-oh you complicated fool, he's confusing it for me! I don't think he's good for her though, I don't know, but I do still like him, I want Noah to be flirty too, though, I dont like dull sweet guys, they bore me! That sounds awful, doesn't it?! I'm sorry!
Anyway, this was a really good chapter, I cannot wait to see what you do next, and post again soon! Like really soon! :D

:] haha I like that name too! Oh and you are so right about Noah that's how he'll be acting...haha... But trust me he'll definetley not be dull. He's going to be something good:D a dare? Hmmm can't say anything. Lucas is complicated no doubt about it. His mind is all over the place. You'll see if he's good or bad for her...:P... That doesn't sound so awful...;]... I think I'm like that too! LOL I have something cooked up for the next chapter. As soon as I type it I'll post it. Hopefully last today, because right now it's one thirty! And I'm still not asleep. Thanks for reading!

:] I'm glad you are smiley about it! LOL thanks for reading!

Tue, December 29th, 2009 11:22am


omg! first let me say that Noah is one of my favorite it just seems so sexy(or maybe its just me)lol

ok and I totally get what she means about blocking out the world when she reads cuz that's exzactly how i feel.most of my friends ask me how da hell I could read with all the noise around me, and until then i thought it was natural. But apperantly not everybody could do

also i just bought the book PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and you just ruined a very important part in the story lol

but no worries I knew Darcy would end up marrying Elizabeth anyway...(its that whole opposites attract thing)=D

anyway ur a great writer and I wanna no more about NOAH so i'm off to the next chapter!

Fri, January 1st, 2010 11:50pm


:] yeah it does! I agree Noah sounds very very sexy;] yeah when I read that's what happens to me. It's like the world just disapears and it's just you and the book. LOL well you're not alone, it natural to me! My sister tells me the same thing, how can you read so much, why do you read, etc. Pride and prejudiice is an ah-mazing novel! And so is the 2005 film!! LOL sorry! Haha maybe I should have thought about not writing so much about it! Thank you! Noah will appear in the future! Thanks for reading:]]]

Fri, January 1st, 2010 3:57pm


ok now i think that shes goin 2 end up likeing him 2 or him likeing her ethier way

Tue, October 26th, 2010 8:50pm


it can happen, there is definitely chemistry in that science lab:D ahh, i'm so lame:P Thanks for reading:]]]]

Tue, October 26th, 2010 4:44pm


This may sound weird, but i don't think she should trust Noah completely yet... and as for Lucas, i think he deserves to be dumped on the side of the road...o__O

Sun, January 15th, 2012 2:07pm


He is a bit weird. I wanted to do more with his character and maybe in the future on my own time I will, but I just wanted to complete it so things didn't turn out how I wanted them to. lol He should! He deserved that! XD Thanks for reading:)
