Chapter 1: At home
“Cammie wake up!” Carly whispered into my ear.
“I’m up.” I slid off my bed and onto the floor. The floor was chilly; I brushed my fingers against the smooth granite.
“Come on Cammie get up off the floor it’s the last day of school you don’t want to be late, do you?” She questioned.
“No.” I jumped up off the floor, and Carly walked out. By the way Carly is my 25 year old sister. She has been taking care of me since she turned 20 because mom and dad died in a car accident. When I was just 7 years old they died my sister was only 17 so she got a job and judge school at the same time. When our parents first died we lived at our god parent’s house.
 They paid for our expenses until our god mother died, and so our god father didn’t have enough money to support us both, so my sister bought a two bedroom apartment with the money she had saved up. Our god father still pays for some of our expenses though like some of our rent my sister’s collage and my bagged school lunches. Let’s see what to wear? I can choose the short sleeve magenta v-neck, or the green tang top hmm which one? I think my magenta oh and my light blue mini skirt perfect.
 
Chapter 2: Transporting
I stroked my blonde hair trying to smooth it out.
“Cammie, Jake, is looking at you. Hayley whispered. I turned my head slight to see Jake’s wonderful green eyes staring right at me as if I was this totally wonderful animal he had just seen for the first time and thought it was so cool. Jake is the pretty boy of this high school in 10th grade. Jake is cocky all the girls like him, but me.  The reason I don't like him is because we have been best friends as long as I can remember, and nothing more.
“Hey Cammie, do you want to walk home together?” Vince asked.
“Sure.” I whispered for no apparent reason.
“Hey Camilla you two are so cute together!” Angela squealed.
“Um thanks.” I answered.
“Bye.” Angela waved and walked off.
“Vince what was that about?” I inquired.
“I um sorta...”
“Hey you guys are dating right?” Jessica questioned.
“Dating that’s what this is about!” I scoffed. Oh my gosh how could he tell these people we were dating, no wait he wouldn’t just tell them he tell the whole school. How could he do this to me! I screamed in my head.
“Oh yeah were dating.” Vince lied. Jessica jumped with glee and skipped away in merriment. I’m so going to kill him for this.
“Vince how could you tell the whole school we were dating? Why would you do this to me you know that we are just friends, and besides dating you would be like dating my brother if I had one.” I fumed.
“I don’t know some girl just came up to me one day and was like you know you and that Camilla girl would be a cute couple together. So I thought it would be ok because you know I don’t really like you like that, and I thought it would make me more popular.” He explained.
“You could of at least told me you were planning to do this you know let me in on the secret. Uh I just can’t believe you!” I screamed.
“I’m sorry. Please forgive me.” He pleaded.
“Will see maybe I will and maybe I won’t.” I glared at him and walked away. I couldn’t believe what he told me to be true. I bet he isn’t even sorry. I bet he was just saying that so I would agree to his stupid little plan. I head raced through options. Forgive and go along with it, don’t forgive for maybe a week or two, not forgive him until he is 88 if he lives that long, pretend he doesn’t existed, or pretend that this never happen and act like everything is normal.
The street was irriguous the rain coming down in and slashing on my head.I will have to talk to him some time but not today. My thoughts were distracting me from the fact that I was still tired from going to bed at 2:00am this morning and waking up at 7:00am. I pressed the button to cross the street the little white man appeared and I started to cross.
“Cammie!” Vince shouted and ran toward me and grabbed my hand.
 Suddenly I heard a car accelerated and slide across the damp road almost hitting me. The van froze in its place I stared at it for a moment noticing starches on it and the red paint that was chipped off.
Suddenly the scene changed into a school the sign read Brook view high school. I stood frozen just starting at the sign my mouth hanging open. Vince’s hand was in mine his mouth handing open as well.
“Where are we I am dreaming?” He blurted out.
“No you’re not dreaming because I’m here with you and I see it too not just you. I don’t know how we got here maybe we both just hit our heads hard or something like that.” I guessed.
“Maybe but the van froze and then we ended up here. OK this might sound crazy, but I think that you transported us here. Now either I’m right or I have been reading too many comic books.” He said dryly.
“Ok let’s say you’re right but the only way we are going to find out is by asking the date and will take it from there ok?” I asked.
“Yes that sounds about right.” He agreed.
“OK then stay here it’s the least you can do for me.” I commanded. He shook his head ion agreement.
I began to walk thinking that I could find my way around. I stepped into a puddle and began to wall when a stiff hand grabbed me and pulled me up.
“Are you ok?” A boy about 5 inches taller than me stood before me his skin was snow white pale, his hair dark brown almost like black coal, and misty blue eyes.
“Umm I’m fine thanks for that. I’m Cammie, by the way.” I smiled.
“I’m Luke; you’re welcome so are new here?” He asked.
“Yeah I just moved here from New York.” I lied hoping he wouldn’t catch it.
“Welcome to California, so are you enrolling into Brook view?”He inquired.
“Yeah I’m enrolling tomorrow.” I responded.
“Oh cool I hope we have some classes together then what grade are you in?” He smiled
“10th grade.” At least that much was true which is about the only thing that is true.
“I’ll see you tomorrow Cammie.” He waved and began to walk away.
“Wait what’s the date today and where is the office?” I exclaimed.
“Jan 6, 2003 and the office through the front gates on your left you can’t miss it bye.” His head turn and he walked away. Oh great I just lied to Luke and looks like I’m goanna have to hack the government system and put myself in 10th grade at Brook View high school as a new kid who is a orphan.
I walked back over to Vince.
“Are you ok what did he say?” He questioned.
“Oh um well we are enrolling in this school and today’s date is January 6, 2003.” I calmly responded.
“We can’t enroll are you crazy we are from the future and we are in the past. Plus how would we change our ages?” He whispered.
“Well I was hoping you would hack the government system and put us in 10th grade at Brook view high school. Please.” I batted my eyes acting like this was a perfectly normal simple request any reasonable person would ask on a regular basis.
“Have you lost it I’m not going to hack the government system we have to get back to the present or the future or whatever we can’t stay here.” He whispered.
“Well as long as we’re here we might as well have some fun and what would be funer than hacking the government system. And if you don’t do it then I’ll do it myself and if I can control my power I wouldn’t send us home unless you try to help me.” I argued.
“Fine let’s go find the library I suppose.” He groaned.
“Umm sir where is the library?” I inquired.
“Go down Tenjd Rd and take a left on Disney Ln.”
“Thanks.” We ran down the road off to the library I pushed the door open. Ok this should work I hope. Vince turned on a computer and began to open up files. File one was labeled people in California and information about them and began clicking on the file. The first name I saw on the list was my name. Ok change age change schools and since I’m kinda an orphan that works.
Vince scrolled down looking for his file finally he found it and changed his age and schools. Vince lived with his aunt so he just labeled himself as an orphan like me.
 Vince saved the files and closed them back up and turned off the computer.
Chapter 3: Things that must not be spoken of
I walked outside into the cold and realized what we had just done. Oh my gosh what if the government finds out? What if they find out I’m from the past? What if Luke finds out? Time froze again this time the scene changed again and we were in the school office talking to the lady at the counter. With my backpack draped over one shoulder. Vince should next to me his backpack draped over his shoulder as well.
“My name is Cammie Harren I’m just transferred here from New York.” I explained.
“Ah yes here we are here is your schedule ask someone to help you around.” She suggested.
“I’ m Vince smith I also just transferred here from New York.” He lied. She handed Vince his schedule the same as she had handed me mine.
“Thanks bye.”I replied. I opened the door and saw Luke in the sunlight making him flawless his skin it’s normal pale white. Today he was wearing a shirt that said “Brook view high rules and your school drools.”
“Hi, Luke.” I sang.
“Um excuse us look I need to talk to Cammie alone for a second.” Vince said in a dry tone.
“Yeah that would be fine.” Luke smiled making the effort to look reassuring.
“So that’s the reason why you made me hack the system. Cammie I can tell you like him but I just don’t think he is right for you I mean look at him.” Vince voice hush.
“Oh you’re just jealous hey unless you have the same schedule as me which I doubt then you should go find your classes I’ll see you later bye.” I waved and smiled faintly. Vince looked down at his schedule for the first time. His face grimaced.  Yes he doesn’t have the same classes as me. Vince turned and began to walk the other way no doubt that he was apprehensive about me and Luke.
“Sorry about my friend Vince he can get really vexatious sometimes.” I complained.
“Oh it fine is that your schedule?” He asked and confiscated it from my hands.
“Hey that was so unfair give it back.” I stared to chase after him and I confiscated it back.
“No that was unfair the least you could have done was give me a head’s start.” He teased.
“Ha ya right and let you run away with my schedule and not bring it back.” I teased back.
“Can you read your classes off to me, or better yet just let me see it.” I handed him the paper. His eyes fixed on the school paper and he stared to read out loud. “1st period Kahnak math room 34, 2nd period drama Emerson room 2, 3rd you have all the same classes as me.” He concluded.
“Cool oh and by the way I love your shirt.” I admitted.
“While um we have to get to our first class follow me.” He grabbed my hand in his and we stared to walk. His hand was warm and soft out fingers were intertwined together.
“Hey what’s up Luke is that your new girlfriend.” A guy in a blue and green sweat shirt laughed.
“Sam she is just my friend and I’m taking her to her class that we have together if you must know now go bug someone else I’m not in the mood today.” He barked. “Sorry about that Sam is my friend he likes to joke a lot so be prepared for him to make a joke at any time.”
“Ok thanks.” I chirped.
“Ok this is it so how is your first day of school so far?” He inquired.
“Good.” I smiled up at him.
“So what are your parents like?” Hr responded
“They died when I was 7 I live with my sister.” I cried a little bit.
“Oh I’m sorry I didn’t know I…” He trailed off. And then hugged me.
“It’s fine.” I tried to hide my tears from him. Bringg. The school bell rang and we all walked inside the class room.
“Hello class we have a new student um let’s see aw yes Cammie Harren is it? Welcome to my class I hope you’ll like it here at Brook View high. Where did you say you came from?” She asked with interest.
“New York it’s a lot different there than it is here.” I lied.
“I bet it is.” She smirked. “Let’s get started.” She began and went off into a lecture and assigned homework it was the same in all my other classes. Finally the final bell rang and Luke grabbed my hand for the second time today I think he was starting to like me like I liked him.
“Heyy uggh wasn’t that class the most tedious class ever?” He asked enthusiastic to hear my answer which was the same as his.
“Yeah totally a snooze I think I really did fall asleep but she didn’t see me, hey can you give me the homework.” I nodded enthusiastically.
“Sure it’s page chapter 3 until chapter 23.” He sighed. “Do you want to go get a smoothie my treat for you being so tired it could be the flu it is flu season you know.” He guessed.
“Yea that would be great.” I smirked.
“Hey Luke so is that your new girlfriend of this year until you dump her and go after her best friend. If you are dating him word of advice he is nice but he will totally cheat on you with your best friend then dump her and find some new girl who has no idea what is going on i.e. you.” She pointed at me.
“Oh well were not dating but thanks for the advice.” I tried to sound cheery but I was too sad to ever sound melancholy. “Is that true?” I looked down trying to think of happy thoughts although I couldn’t think of any at the moment.
“No that’s Claire my old girlfriend she just hates me because I broke up with her last year because she was a snob. But we never had sex or anything we just kissed if you don’t believe me ask anyone.” He explained.
Chapter 4: Things to think about
“Luke I, have to go I just forgot I have to go some thing after school I’ll see ya tomorrow bye.” I waved and walked off in the other direction.
“Hi um do you know if Luke who dated Claire cheated in her with her bff and if he has ever had it or is that just a rumor?” I asked a girl who looks like she would know everything about this subject.
“It is just a rumor the only thing Luke has done was kissed Claire a couple of times or so but she got mad when he dumped her because she was a total snob.” She explained.
“Oh oh thanks I have to go find Luke bye wait what is your name?” I questioned
“I’m Rachel Lambert nice talking to you bye, and good luck.” She smiled and waved. I transported myself to where ever Luke was.
“Hey Luke.” I smiled casually.
“Hey I thought you had to do something did it end early or something like that.” He guessed.
“Yeah it did it was like suppose to be like two hours long but it was only like a hour or something like that so I’m like I left the guy I was with to come down here for a hour.” I columned.
“Oh wow umm there was something I wanted to ask you do you want to umm no look I like you and I know that is a really lame 7th grade way of putting it, but it is true.” He kisses me on the cheek. I just stood there blushing like an idiot. What was I going to say I like you too and through my arms around him and ride off on a white horse into the sunset only in movies although that does sound nice. I wouldn’t mind doing that some day. Perhaps today?
“Cammie so what do you have to say.” He looked at me.
“I like you too.” I said shyly.
“Umm I know its might be weird, but do you want to start dating?” He asked hoping I would say yes but would also be disappointed if I said no. I threw by arms around his neck and kissed him. My face was flushed by the time I let go which was about 5 minutes. I guess he really likes me a lot.
“So was that a yes or a no.”He joked.
“It was a yes.” I chirped.
“Good.” He kissed me back.
“Oh hi you two love birds.” Claire laughed. “Seriously you should really take what I said into consideration. I won’t be all over him like that he could have some disease in fact get away from him!” She ordered.
“Look Claire we are bf and gf now oh and what you said is sooooooooo not true you just lied to get payback on Luke, so go away and leave us alone bye.” I waved good bye to her.
“You’ll see he’ll do it to you just like he did it to me and don’t come crying to me when he does it cuz I don’t help anyone who is a female dog so get lost.” Claire did the loser sign and walked off furious. Cussing at us.
“Don’t mind her she is a female dog.” He laughed at Claire and began to kiss me again. Now I was sitting on his lap kissing him which felt so right cuz I really like him more than you would think.
“So tell me about yourself I mean if we want to be a couple we have to know stuff about each other right?” He asked in more if a pictorial question that I answered any ways.
“Totally ok so fav food, fav ice cream, fav movie, fav candy, oh and fav song ever!” I cheerily smiled.
“Ice cream is my fav food flavor umm chocolate chip cookie dough, and I love chocolate, and my fav song is by you by Peter Roberts.”
“Cool mine are strawberries, same as yours for ice cream, and same as you’re for candy, and my fav song is Love story by Taylor Swift.” I added.
“COOLLLL.” He laughed and so did I.
 
Chapter 5: He likes me epp!!
“Rachel he likes me Luke likes me.” I practically screamed in her ear, and hugged her.
“Cool so are you two love birds dating now?” She questioned.
“Yes!” I shouted in front of the WHOLE school.
“Dude calm down!” A guy yelled.
“Sorry.” I tried to sound sincere.
“Oh just ignore him he is such a Loser!” She did the loser sign at him.
“Rachel do you think he likes me as much as I like him or do you think he likes me more than I like him?” My voice soft.
“Did he kiss you first and did he say he likes you first?” She answered back softly.
“No actually he kissed me on the cheek and ya he did say he likes me first.” I told her.
“Doesn’t matter it is still a kiss. Cammie has a boyfriend. Cammie has a boyfriend.” She sang.
“Quiet he might he or worst the whole school!” I put my hand over her mouth and shhhh her.
“Ok I’ll be quiet for now.” She giggled.
“Stop that no one must know got it?”I whispered.
“Yeah I got it don’t worry.” She shot back.
“Ok just making sure. Umm I need to tell you something, but you can’t tell anyone and please don’t think I’m weird.” I declared.
“Ok promise I won’t tell a soul.” She agreed.
Chapter 6: Confessions
“Ok give me your hand and tell me somewhere you want to go right now.” I instructed.
“Paris, France an ice cream shop.” She told me. The scene froze and turned into an ice cream shop that read Paris ice cream on the sign and some French word that means ice cream. She opened her eyes and saw the sign omfg we are in Paris.
“Bonjour.” Rachel said something in French and got a strawberry ice cream and a chocolate chip one for me.
“Thanks.” I looked down.
“This is so cool! Why would I be freaked out about this it rocks?” She yelled.
“Ok time to go.” I grabbed her hand and transported us back to California.
“I want to tell someone wait have you told Luke yet I’m the first person you told?” She interrogated.
“No I haven’t told Luke, yes you are the first person I’ve told, and no you cannot tell anyone because sciencetists might want to see why I’m like this and put me on display or something or who knows what else.” I whispered in her ear. “Truth is I’m from the future and I hacked into some government files to get myself in this school.” Finally it felt good to tell someone the truth for once.
“You are from there no way.” She laughed.
“Yes way.” I short her -a you -are dead -look if you say future.
“How did you get here anyways?” She looked puzzled.
“A van was about to hit me and Vince my friend I got scared and froze time and somehow transported myself back here.
“Ohh so are you gonna go back?” She asked.
“No I can’t Luke is here and I can’t take him with me because I might mess up the time stream or something like that I can only transported places in the time I’m in expect when I got here that was when I got scared.” I explained.
“So what happens with other emotions do you go in the future or something like that? She interrogated.
“I don’t know, but I’m not going to find out so don’t even ask it cuz the answer is no and will always be no got it?” She shook her head and kept quiet.
“Hi ladies, so what are you two talking about?” Luke cut in.
“Oh ya know shopping, our weeks, and stuff like that.” Rachel lied.
“Gross!” Luke wrinkled his nose like he smelled something bad.
“Well you shouldn’t interrupt our conversations.” I told him.
“Sorry can I brow Cam for a sec?” He looked at Rachel.
“Yeah go a -head she is all yours. Bye lovebirds.” She sang as she skipped away. Luke grabbed my hand our fingers intertwined like normal. By now I had gotten use to it.
“Hey sexy how are you?” He smiled a perfect smile flashing his magnificent white teeth.
“Good and you?” I kissed him tugging my arms around his neck and intertwining my fingers in his messy bed head hair.
“Wonderful hey do you use vanilla shampoo and conditioner?” He inquired.
“Yeah I do.” I smiled.
“I missed you it’s been a long time since we saw each other you know what today is?” He questioned.
“Valentine’s Day and my birthday, but I didn’t tell you it so I don’t expect to get anything, don’t worry it’s all good.” I told him.
“Well I got you some candy for Valentine’s Day anyways so do you want this to be your Valentine’s day present, or your birthday present how about this can be both so I don’t have to buy you a present next year.” He joked.
“Ha ha nice one.” I kissed him again this time trying to find the present he had somewhere.
“Oh I also got you this .” He pulled a purple charoite necklace from his pocket shaped in a heart and put it around my neck.
“Aw you didn’t have to get me this.” I kissed him on the cheek this time.
“Oh here are the chocolates.” He handed me a box filled with chocolates from See’s candy.
 
 
Chapter 7: Vince
 
Vince shoved open the door to the shop his eyes were fixed on me his hand in a fist.
“Cammie I need to talk to you now.” He commanded.
“Ok I’ll be right back Luke.” I got off his lap and walked over to Vince.
“Hey what’s up?” I asked making the words more serious than they sound.
“We have to leave here we have been here for a while and I bet we already damaged the time stream. Besides if Luke finds out we are dead and if we just leave we can just forget about this whole mess like it never happen.” He informed me in a hush tone.
“You want me to leave and act like none of this ever happen. Like Luke never existed in the first place and like it was a just a dream!” I whispered angrily.
“Look Cammie we have already spent too much time here and Luke isn’t right for you wouldn’t it be better if you oh I don’t know find some boy to like that is form our time.” He suggested.
“Oh like who?” My voice harsher than before.
“Me Cammie I love you.” He smiled.
“Vince your just my friend and I love Luke I have to go.” I turned shocked. I never expected Vince to like me like that. How long has he felt this way? Why didn’t he tell me sooner?
“Hey Cam you ok?” Luke asked with concern.
“Yea I’m fine don’t worry about me we should go.” I lied.
“Yea come on.” He took my hand and we left the shop.
“Hey Luke I’m gonna find Rachel I’ll see you at school ok bye.” I waved feeling horrible. My stomach was in knots. I transported myself to Rachel.
“Hey Rach I need to talk to you Vince just told me he loves me and I don’t feel that way towards him. You should have seen his face I feel horrible.” I confessed.
“Well at least you were honest with him.” She smiled sounding optimistic.
“Rach I think I might have broken his heart and I don’t want this to ruin our friendship.” I looked down my stomach feeling even worst now. “I was supposed to send us home way before this.”
“Don’t worry he’ll forgive you in time.” She hugged me.
“I guess but what if he doesn’t what if this does destroy our friendship. Hey can you do me a favor?” I began to smile.
“Um yea I guess depends what it is.” She told me.
“Ok you like Vince right?” I questioned.
“Well ya but like a friend actually if you come to think of it he is cute.” She confessed.
“Ok well that’s perfect cuz if you like him and he likes you he will totally forget about me. And you two will be like perfect together.” I nodded my head sounding enthusiastic.
“Ok but how do you know he will get over you that quickly?” She answered.
“Oh don’t worry he will all I have to do is put some makeup on you and your be perfect.” I smiled.
“As fun as that sounds I rather not I hate putting make-up on it’s nothing personal but I just do.” She pouted.
“Ok then you are going to have to flirt ok.” I beamed.
“Ok.” She nodded her head.
“I have to go ok I’ll see you Rach and remember you have to be flirtatious.” I transported myself back to Luke. Since I had gotten this transporting thing under control mostly transporting me places just became a habit.
 
 
 
Chapter 8: It was all just a lie.
“Hi Luke.” I grabbed his hand.
“Hi hey since we have been taking for a while I thought that you should meet my parents.” We began to walk.
“OK.” I transported us to his parent’s house without thinking
“Cammie I can’t walk that quick how did we get here so fast?”
“I um I.” I froze. Oh my gosh why did I do that. Great now the greatest relationship I ever had not to mention the only relationship I have ever had.
“Cammie how did we get here so fast?” He repeated.
“I transported us here I’m sorry I was going to tell you but I was afraid that this would happen and you would break up with me.” I cried.
“So it was all just a lie?” He answered. I looked down I couldn’t bear to see his eyes look at me ashamed.
“Yes I’m really from the time 2009 and I transported Vince and me here when a car was about to kill us. Then I came here and met you and I didn’t want to leave so I decided to act like I was from this time. I know you’re mad but you can’t tell anyone please. If you do then who knows what will happen.” I explained.
“It’s ok Cam it doesn’t matter.” He admitted.
“It doesn’t but I…” I stopped talking and let him explain.
“It ok I belong to a time travel association so I can go to the present with you.” He lifted my chin up.
“You can oh my gosh we have to find Rach and Vince right away.” I grabbed his hand and transported us to Rachel and Vince.
“Rach its ok he knows and we can all go back.” I smiled over excited.
“Cool.”
“Ok give me your hands.” Rachel grabbed my hand and Vince grabbed hers. I vision the sidewalk I was going to cross before the red van almost hit me. The scene changed and we all stood on that exact side walk. I hugged Rachel, Luke, and Vince.
“Oh my gosh this is so cool.” Luke and Rachel said in unison. I smiled happy to be back where I belonged.
The end
