1A Chapter by ♥ Courtney ♥
My alarm clock screamed at six AM. I lethargically rolled over and sent my hand searching for the snooze button. After a bit of self-convincing, I willed myself out of bed and walked to my bathroom to shower. I let the water run over my fingers, letting the cold from it numb them. When it finally got hot I jumped in and showered quickly as I could at six o clock in the morning. When I got out I dressed in faded jeans and a green top that said, "How’s It Going To End?" I grabbed my bag and walked down stairs to the kitchen. My mom had left for work, she is a real estate agent and she is constantly on the go. Sometimes I joke to myself that she’ll be the first woman to have a cell phone permanently fused to her ear. My dad was hurrying around the house with his briefcase trying to walk and tie his tie. He was probably late again for work, because he was always “late late late!”. I sat at the table and poured myself some cereal. I heard the toaster pop and I got up and took out the toast and spread some butter on them, and then I cut them in half and put them into a baggy. As my dad was rushing to the door I handed him his breakfast on the go.
"Thank you Lexie" he smiled and kissed my cheek
"Love you dad" I said as he left
"Love you too kiddo " he shouted over his shoulder
I walked back inside and ate my breakfast alone as usual. I didn’t mind though, because I enjoyed the peace and quiet. I finished my breakfast and rinsed my bowl. I grabbed my bag and left for school. Ashley, my best friend, pulled up to my driveway and we were off to school. Ashley was the greatest. Unlike me she is tall and has brown hair that is back length and she has a perfect volleyball body. She is also very verbose. I don’t see my self as shy, I just pick and choose what I want to say very carefully. I have my friends and I’m content with that. "Hey girlie" Ashley said
"What’s up?" I asked
"Ugh another day of teachers trying to fail us" she said smiling
"Trying to fail you Ash, you being the operative word" I teased
"Sorry I forgot that you were the teachers pet" she laughed
"Yeah right. I just turn my work in on time and choose not to spend the whole class flirting with the guys around me" I looked at her
"Shut up I can’t help it if I get sat by really cute guys" we laughed hysterically. She parked the car and we walked in.
"I’ll see you in 3rd period" she shouted
"k" I didn’t look up from my lock on my locker.
I pulled the lock free with force, put my backpack inside and pulled out my world history book. The bell rang and I walked to first period. I sat down in a desk toward the middle of the room. I noticed that the desk that was usually empty behind me was now filled with a really cute guy. The class began and I tried to pay attention to the teacher but I couldn’t keep my mind off the guy behind me. What was wrong with me? I’d never let a guy effect me like this before. I started blushing. I heard the new guy laugh behind me. I quickly went over if I had just said anything aloud that he could have heard but I hadn’t . I couldn’t help but wonder what he was laughing about. The bell rang and I scooped up my things and tried to leave quickly. I rushed out the door glad to be free of that class. I laughed at myself at the way I had acted. I turned to see Jennifer, the schools "popular" girl, talking and flirting with the new guy. She was practically drooling over him. He talked and laughed with her but his eyes drifted to mine. He smiled and I quickly looked away. I opened my locker to put a barrier between his eyes and me. I grabbed my biology book and walked to class. He had obviously gone to class because he wasn’t with Jennifer anymore. I convinced myself that it must have been someone behind me he was smiling at. When I got to bio the seat next to me that had been vacated since last week because Adam Walker had moved to Canada was now filled with a guy with long black hair. I walked over, pleased that I was no longer alone at my table.
"Hi I’m Kyle" he introduced himself
"Lexie" I said smiling.
I watched the teacher start to explain anatomy and stifled a yawn as his lecture droned on and on.
