Here I am, at my boyfriend’s house crying into him.

Before I go on, I should probably tell you a little bit about myself. Hi my name is Crystal McCloud. I have blonde hair, blue eyes and I’m a cheerleader. I have two brothers, one older named Craig and one younger named Adam. You look at me and think wow she has the perfect life but in reality my life is far from perfect...

Ugh stupid alarm clock. I guess it’s time to get ready for school. School starts at 8:30am and it’s now 6:30am.I have 2 hours to get ready and get to school. I get up and start the shower, while waiting for it to warm up I grab my uniform and lay it out on my bed. The shower is nice and it makes me forget all about the fight with my mom last night. All too soon it is time to get out and get ready for school. I step out of the shower and wrap myself in a towel and wrap my hair in another one. I dry off and put on my uniform then plug in my straightner. While I wait for that to heat up I do my make-up only a little eye shadow and blush. I am not one of those stuck up princesses that use a lot of make-up. There we go, I’m ready for school. I hop in my cherry red convertible and am on my way to school.

I pull up and immediately spot my best friends and my amazing boyfriend Shawn. Were the “it” couple. I am the head cheerleader and he is the quarterback of the high school Varsity football team. I like to think we are the perfect couple and actually we are. He is always there for me when I need him but there is one thing he does not know about my life and that is that my mom beats me. He knows everything else except that. My parents are divorced and my dad doesn’t talk to me. They both think I’m a worthless child and I don’t deserve the life I have so they beat me. The voice of my amazing boyfriend broke me out of my thoughts.

“Hey baby you ok?” Shawn said coming over and kissing me. “Oh yeah I’m fine just thinking” I said. “Come on we better get to class before Mrs.Belloni gives us detention” he said. “Yeah let’s go” I said taking his hand.

We had almost every class together except when I had calculus he had gym. We walked into English hand in hand only getting a small glare from Mrs.Belloni when we walked in at the bell. English dragged on and so did chemistry. Lunch is my favourite time of the day. It is the one time of the day when there is no stress and I can just relax and have fun with my friends. We spent lunch talking about the party Jared is throwing tonight.

“Yeah man it’s gonna be so sick” Jared said. “Are we going to the party tonight babe?” Shawn asked me “I can’t. You know I’m not allowed out” I answered. “I wish you could just for one night” he said back. “So do I” I said back.

Lunch ended and we all parted ways except for Jared and I. We had calculus together. I said goodbye to Shawn and the rest of my friends and went to Calculus with Jared. We were doing the same thing we did yesterday so I finished my work in no time. I just sat at my desk starring out the window and just doodled on my page. Class dragged on and on, after a while I thought the bell was never gonna ring. After what felt like forever the bell finally rang and outside the door waiting for me was my wonderful boyfriend.

“How was class?” Shawn asked. “Boring, how was gym?” I asked back “Good, we played dodge ball and I pegged some guy in the nose.” He answered. “That must have hurt” I said. “Yeah it probably did” He laughed.

We walked hand in hand to class laughing at nothing and deciding we were going to go see a movie tomorrow. I am glad it is Friday. That means we have the weekend off. Class dragged on till finally the day of classes were over but I could not go home just yet. I still had cheerleading practice. We worked and worked to get ready for the competition. It was a good practice. We have pretty much all the cheers down perfectly. I headed home but I guess my mom forgot I had cheer leading practice tonight because my brothers were gone and she was at the door waiting and livid.

“Where the heck have you been? You were supposed to be home two hours ago.” She screamed “Mom I told you I had cheerle—“she cut me off. “I don’t want to hear your lame excuses” she screamed. *Slap* That’s when I started to cry. “I hate you. You are the worst mother in the world” I screamed. “Get out of my house. Get your things and get out” Mom Said. “Gladly, as long as I am away from you I will be fine” I screamed back. I ran up to my room packed what I would need and called Shawn. “Shawn” I sniffled “Baby what’s wrong? Why are you crying? Are you ok? Where are you?” He asked panicking. “I’m at home. Can you come get me? My mom kicked me out after she hit me” I said. “I’m on my way baby wait outside.” He said “Okay I love you” I told him “I love you too baby. I’ll be there in 5 minutes max” he told me “Okay bye” I said “Bye” he said then hung up

As I was walking out the door “it” stopped me.

“You are not welcome here anymore. You will not be able to come see your brothers or get anything you leave behind” she told me. “Oh well I don’t want to come back to this place. I’ll see my brothers at school. Goodbye you horrible witch” I said as I walked out and slammed the door. There was my knight in shining armour waiting for me. The ride back to his house was quiet. The minute we got there I was in his arms in tears. Now you’re all caught up. That is my life. How horrible isn’t it.
