waaaaiiit guyss, authors note ;p Soo, schools been crazy lately, but i have three days of school off (teachers strike) and theeen after that its spring break (; So dont worry, i’ll be posting lots! I know, “youve been busy for like a month!” but i have a pretty crazy life, believe me. I kind of have writers block… but enjoy? sorry if its crappy. but thanks anyways for the followssss (: I really appreciate it.
I cautiously clicked the answer button .
“Uh, hello?” ..
“Hi! Its Austin. Still up for our date tonight?”
“Oh , hey ! Of course!” i answered.
“Great. Pick you up at six?”
“Perfect” i said, trying to make it obvious i was smiling.
“See you then” he said, hanging up.
I threw my phone lightly onto my bed and snatched my towel and hairbrush and headed off for the bathroom. I walked into the bathroom, the hot water hitting my body like soft raindrops, washing away all my worries. After twenty minutes that felt like two, i stepped out and wrapped my white towel around my petite frame before walking to my bedroom and softly closing the door behind me and locking it. I let go of my towel before it dropped onto my carpet and threw on my underwear. (LOL, awks) after what seemed like forever, i found a suitable outfit for tonight. http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=45000792 speaking about tonight, what time is it? wait, why am i asking you? i glanced at the clock that read “5:20” crap. After what felt like hours , i finally picked out an outfit. I hope its not too much… I shrugged and pulled out my giant make up case. Once my smokey eye was smokey enough, my lip gloss was perfectly glossy, and my blush was perfectly blushy, i took a step back in the mirror and nodded at myself in approval. My eyes darted towards the clock. 5:45 I still have fifteen minutes. I brushed three more times and chewed on four pieces of excel gum as i painted my nails. Finally they were finished drying. I practically skipped downstairs and plopped onto the couch.
“ooh, where are you off to?” my dad said jokingly.
“Well.. this boy i met asked me out on a date.. he was really nice.. soo i agreed. Thats okay right?”
“Of course it is sweetie. Just lemme see it first” he said .
I held out my right hand, flashing my purity ring at him.
“Thats my girl” he said before we both started laughing.
The doorbell rang and i practically shot out of my seat.
“DAD! Answer the door! Im gonna go run upstairs, so you can yell my name, and then i come walking down the stairs and BAM its all dramatic and cute like you know those cool movies where-“
“Just go hunnny” he interupted, shooing me off.
I dashed upstairs and then i heard my cue. I touched up my hair before i walked slowly down the staircase and saw Austin standing at the bottom of it wearing board shorts and a bright blue hollister t-shirt. YES . he wasnt all formal. Bieetchess, we be goin somewhere i vant toooo. I guess you could say im in a happy mood. When our eyes locked at the bottom, i realized they were blue mixed with a bit of grey. Blue eyes… logan… i smiled to myself at the thought of his name. no , what the hell ? Im on a date ..
“Nice outfit” he said, dumbfounded.
“Thanks” i mumbled. “Not to bad yourself” i said as i looked down at my newly painted toenails that were peeking out through my brown gladiator sandals.
“Okay lets go. See ya mr somers. Keep it chill bruh” he concluded, pretty much dragging me out of the house.
Rude . Like for real, who calls a girls parents “bro”? I mean he barely even pronounced it right . Ugh . He climbed into the drivers seat of his black Ferrari which roared to life when he put his key into ignition, before i was even in the damn thing. We zoomed pass cars with the radio playing softly. Before i knew it, we were parked infront of the beach. He climbed out, slamming the door behind him and opened the back door, pulling out something. I opened his car door and gently closed it shut as i saw him already walking towards the beach. The sun was barely up, but not quite sunset yet. I followed him , but as much as i tried to speed walk to him, he was way ahead.
“Hurry up, would you?” he asked.
I rolled my eyes and ran towards him, sand finding its way into my sandals and hiding between the crevices of my feet. He turned me around.
“Dont look until i tell you to” he said.
I nodded , even though he probably didnt even see it.
“Okay, turn around” .
I turned around and saw a beach towel only big enough to fit one person, and a picnik basket lying in the sand. He plopped himself down onto the seat, leaving a spot big enough for me to sit down and cross my legs together. He opened the picnic basket and the smell of a fast food restaurant hit my nose like an oncoming truck. What . The . Fuck . Cheap . Ass . He pulled out a brown paper back with a yellow M marked on the front. McDonalds. for real. He pulled out two big macs, and two regular sized french fries , what the hell are they called, cups? I dont know, but this mofo is pmo. He handed a french fry “cup” and the big mac.
“Eat up” he said.
“Erm , thanks.” i added.
“No sweat. For real. Like i had coupons.”
“Even better..” i replied, rolling my eyes.
After we finished, i wiped my fingers onto a napkin along with my mouth and took a sip out of his large coke. He was finished too, so he stuffed the garbage into the mcdonalds paper bag, collected the towel and just left the garbage sitting there.. no way was he gonna fucking litter that shit. Sorry, but i dont like people who litter . Biieetch . i picked up the paper bag and jogged to the garbage can , threw it in and raced to catch up with Austin. We small talked while he made me hold his stupid beach towel as we walked down the beach, the sun setting slowly . I sighed occasionally. Once he grabbed my hand, but i slipped mine out of his. It was really easy because his hands were still greasy from the mcdonalds… After 9789475938475 hours, the boy finally came to his senses and decided to get home. He didnt even walk me back, he pretty much told me to get out of his car, before saying a casual ‘bye’. I unlocked my door and slammed it shut behind me. My dad was probably sleep by now, so i walked back upstairs. The clock said it was 9:28. I changed into my navy blue sweats and an old tshirt and started my homework after i washed my make up off. By eleven fifteen, my homework was all completed and i slipped into my bed and fell off to sleep… i was dreaming.
I was four again.. and in the bedroom of my old house, hiding in the closet, peeking through the cracks. I saw his face… short black hair, dark brown eyes, light stuble, pretty tall, a tattoo of a snake coiling around his pinky finger.. this was him. The man who killed my mother… The closet door burst open and he looked me straight in the eye, smiling an crooked smile, revealing a golden kanine tooth. Just before he grabbed me, i awoke .
Heaps of sweat were puddled on my forehead and my breathing was extremely heavy. Why? why was i only dreaming about hiim now? and .. and why was my dream so vivid?
Heey, so yeah.. I hope you liked it. Again, so sorry for the delay on writing. No hard feelings? (; Austins a jerk, huh? yeah of course you agree . LOL . sorry i know im acting like a biietch but thats cause ive been fighting alot with my boyfriend.. and i just need to laugh, and be happy you know? Well yeah thats it for this chapter ;p i promise i’ll try my best to upload to more. -Sam
Chaz grabbed my wrist (which i must say startled me) and rushed down the hallway, somewhat angrily.
“Uhm, Chaz, where are we going?” i asked, cautiously.
“To the school office of course” he answered.
I could tell he calmed down because his voice was much softer, and we slowed down a bit. The halls werent as filled compared to a minute or two ago. He let go of my wrist which dropped onto my leg .He sighed.
“Faith I’m sorry about the guys. I just, i dont know why they would do that” he said apologetically while shaking his head.
“Dont worry about it.”
“Faith of course i’m going to worry about it. Youre my cousin!”
I laughed. “Nice to see you care Chaz”
We finally reached the office. He pushed open the door and there sat the school secretary. Im guessing she knew i was new cause when she looked up, she said ..
“New. Into Mr.Markel’s room”
Chaz leaded the way and pushed the door open for me.
“Youre not coming in?”
Chaz shook his head and gently pushed me in. The principal put down his pen and interlocked his fingers and inspected me.
“You must be Faith Sommers” he finally said. “Take a seat”
I sat down on one of the two red cushioned chairs.
“So, You came from Grand prarie texas, correct?”
“You know your manners. Good”
“My pare- my dad raised me well”
“Great. So, lets get started, shall we?”
He picked up a book of about 30 pages and handed it to me. It read “Mackenzie Heights rules and regulations”.
“Take care of that, will you? A student will be on his way to show you around the campus.”
“Yes sir, Thank you sir”
“Sir. I could get used to that” he said with a finishing chuckle.
I heard the door creak open and there he stood. I couldnt forget his ocean blue eyes.
“Ahh, yes, Logan, this is Faith Sommers. Shes new here from Texas. You have a 4.0 grade average, yes? Missing two blocks will not be a problem, will it?”
“Not at all Sir.”
He said sir! We have something in common! ;D
“Thank you. Dismissed” he finished, handing us both pink hall passes.
I stood up and walked out of the school office with Logan at my side.
“Hi. My name’s Logan . Logan Lerman.”
“Nice to meet you Logan” i said with a smile. “My name’s Faith Sommers.”
“So, texas huh?” he said, walking back down the hall.
“Yeup” i said with a smile on my face.
Logan and I conversed long enough that I knew lots about him. Actually, i felt pretty close to him. Its nice making a friend on your first day of school, let alone the first two hours.
“The bells going to ring in a couple of minutes. Wanna get to the lunch room early?” he asked.
“Sure, why not” i said with a cute smile planted on my face.
He took my hand and we walked together to the lunchroom . My face turned warm and i knew i was blushing.
“Soo, whats for lunch?” i said.
“I actually dont know” he said laughing.
I laughed along with him. The bell buzzed and people from all around came to line up. Our hands disconnected and i wont lie, it made me a bit disappointed, but whatever. I picked up a tray and took an apple, a banana, a turkey sandwhich, and a bottle of water. Logan lead me to an empty table and we sat next to each other.
“Is that all youre going to eat?” he asked with a goofy yet cute smile on his face.
“Yeah. Im trying to stay healthy” i said, giggling lightly.
“Heyyy” someone called from afar. I saw Chaz in a clump with the rest of his friends.
“Great” i sighed.
“You dont like Chaz?” Logan questioned.
“Of course i like Chaz. I just dont like the group of baboons he calls ‘friends’”
“Huurrrtttt” Logan said witha pouty face.
“Oh, no of course not you! Im so sorry!” I gave him a side hug.
We laughed, not letting go of each other. I leaned on his chest, his warm breath hitting my face and his steady heartbeat filling my ears. I wanted to stay here forever. Wait - What am I doing? I just met this boy! I need to get a grip on myself. Chaz dumped his tray infront of us and huffed. He looked up and his frown was replaced with a smile.
“Woah woah woah! Keep the PDA to a minimum please!” he joked.
We pulled away and once again, i blushed.
“Chaaaz, it was just a friendly hug” Logan said.
“Riiggghhhttt. So anyways, Ms.Venice gave me a detention for passing a stupid note to Mel. It didnt even reach her..” he frowned.
Just my luck - The rest of the boys surrounded the table loudly talking to each other. I took a bite out of my sandwhich in delight.
“Wait” i said, swallowing it down. “Who’s gonna bring me home?”
“Can you wait until four? Im really sorry Faith.”
“Nah, its alright”
Chaz looked to his left and choked on his water. I raised an eyebrow and turned to look. There was a beautiful blonde girl with her fingers interwined with another boys fingers. This must be Mel. Poor chaz.
“Maybe theyre just friends?” i said, trying to help.
“Yeah, because THATS just friends” chaz said, disappointedly.
I looked over and saw them lip-locking. I looked back at Chaz’s expression. I could tell he really liked this girl.
“Dont worry about it bro” Logan added. “Its her loss”
“Youre right” Chaz decided.
After about Fifteen minutes Chaz, Logan and I finished up the last of our lunch and cleaned up. The boys didnt even noticed we were leaving, which i was glad of. We went out into the hall. A piece of paper slipped out from my handbook. I picked it up and read it. “Locker: 205 Combination:25 32 95 74”
“Oh , cool” I said.
“What is it?” Logan asked .
“My locker. Its 205.”
“Thats just a few lockers away from here” Chaz said.
“Dude, thats like, five lockers away from mine!” Logan said.
“Great!” i added
We walked until we reached my locker. There was already a lock on it. I put in my locker combination and it opened up. It was completely empty and it smelled like a library - dusty and dull. On the flip side of my locker door was a bulletin board. Yay (: I took my backpack off my back and put in my text books, pencil case and my binders into it. I slung my backpack into a hook. The bell buzzed. I looked over and Chaz was walking away without a goodbye. I guess he had something to do. Oh well. At least Logan was still here .
“What classes do you have?” I asked him.
“Uhhm. Art, Chemistry and English”
I looked down at my paper and a smile grew on my face.
“Great. all the same classes as me” (:
We walked down to art class, which was located in the east side of the building.
The bell rang as English finished and Logan and I packed our stuff and walked swiftly out the class door. Today was fun. In Art class, we were to paint something that reminded us of our parter. I painted an ocean. Logan painted an hourglass. And no, it wasnt time related at all. I smacked him in the arm for that. Chemistry was a blast. Literally. Kevin Jones’ experiment blew up in front of him. English, well english was alright. We were to write an essay, but me and Logan just wrote notes to each other on our lined paper. I smiled at the though of iit . We stuffed our things into our bags and walked out the doors.
“Hey, so I dont like the idea of you being alone until four soo, I wouldnt mind staying with you” he said, his hand rubbing his neck.
” Really/? Thanks!” I said, smiling and getting onto my tippy toes to pull him into a hug.
We both laughed and pulled away. We walked around the school for a bit. We talked more about ourselves, but then i stumbled upon an impossible question.
“Why dont you ever talk about your mom?” he asked
I stopped dead in my tracks.
“Oh, sorry, you dont have to tell me if you dont want to” he said, apologetically.
I thought about it for a few seconds.
“No, I think you should know. ” I cleared my throat and continued “Well, I was four and my parents and I were at home. I was in my room playing with my barbies when i heard a loud thud and screams. I heard things falling and my dad yelling words I couldnt understand. I heard a few unfamiliar low voices. Then i heard a loud bang. Footsteps charged upstairs. I panicked and ran into my closet.” my voice cracking and my eyes welling in tears. “I .. Someone came into my room . I watched through the crack as they knocked all my stuff to the floor and kicked my pink wall so hard they created a hole with their black combat boots. Yells were still heard from downstairs - two male voices. One my dad’s and one unknown. I .. I was -“
I was interrupted by a hug.
“Im sorry. I shouldnt have asked” he whispered into my ear, sending chills down my spine.
Tears leaked from my eyes and onto his chest. He smells so good it made me melt. We hugged for about three minutes until i took a deep breath and pulled away. I pulled out my iPhone 4S . it was 3:50. I wiped away my tears and said ..
“Ten more minutes until detention is done. Wanna head back now ?” i asked .
He lead the way back. I pulled out my phone and started playng Temple Run. After about two minutes , I bumped into what seemed like a wall. I looked up startled, and saw a boy - one of Chaz’s friends.
“Oh, Im so sorry!” He said, holding onto me so I didnt fall back. Logan turned around and watched us curiously.
“Dont worry about it” i said, about to leave.
“Wait! How about I make up for it by taking you out tonight?” he said with a flirtatious smile on his face. I didnt know him… but.. i guess i could give him a chance…
“Great! Whats your number?”
I pulled out a pen and scribbled it down on his arm.
“I guess ill see you later then?”
“You sure will” i said with a smile on my face. I walked over two Logan. He had his arms crossed.
“Hey, who is that guy?” i asked , cluelessly (if thats a word)
“Austin StClair. Captain of the football team and number one jerk”
“Really? he seemed pretty nice to me” i said, walking towards Chaz.
“Ha. alrighty there.”
I was about to reply but Chaz came marching up .
“About time you guys” he said.
“Im sorry. Have a good time tonight. I gotta get going. See ya” Logan said, walking away.
“What was that all about?”
When we reached home i thanked Chaz. My dad finished unpacking everything and my new house was complete. My phone rang. “unknown” .
thats it for now (x sorry if you expected something better ;p Special thanks to Mitchi ! (: -Sam
Hi . My names Faith Sommers and im seventeen years old. I know youre probably like “OMG! YOURE RELATED TO CHAZ SOMMERS!? NO WAYYY!” buuuut, its not exactly how youd picture it. I am- well, was born and raised in Grand Prarie, Texas. I’ve never exactly met Chaz before. You see, Chaz lives in New York, which is exactly where im headed now. My dad decided he could find a better paying job as a business man there. He also thinks its a good oportunity to catch up with my uncle, whose son happens to be Chaz. My opinion, you ask ? Bullcrap. I didnt have family back in Texas, but i did have to leave behind my best friend. Gail.
“Sweetie, we’re here” my dad said, taking his key out of ignition.
I opened my hazel brown eyes and put my iPod onto pause as i observed my surroundings. It looked like a peaceful little neighborhood.
“Is that our house?” I said, looking at a two story yellow house with a fair-sized porch while trying to unbuckle my seat belt.
“Thats it” he said, pulling a box out og the backseat labeled “TOM no.1” in thick black letters.
I pulled out my earbuds and stuffed them into the pocket of my purple hoodie along with my iPod. Tomorrow’s my first day at my new High School, Mackenzie Heights. I brushed aside my long dyed-red hair as I picked up my first box
I yawned as my alarm clock roared. I flung my arm at it, hitting the snooze button. I sat up in bed and looked around . My newly set up room looked pretty good. My dad and I managed to finish our own rooms PLUS the kitchen. The Living room’s still empty, as are the bathrooms ;p We’d get to them later today. I trudged over to my walk-in closet and began looking through my clothes for an outfit. After five long minutes, i picked out http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=42960607 . I whipped out my toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, hairbrush and towel and walked to the bathroom. After about ten minutes, I walked down the stairs and saw my dad reading the paper at the breakfast table with an empty plate infront of him. Infront of the seat across from him sat a plate displaying one sunny-side up eggs, two strips of bacon, a hashbrown and a glass of orange juice. I smiled and sat down where the dish was located.
“Thanks dad” i said with a smile on my face.
“No problem sweetie. Now you better hurry up, Chaz’ll be here in about five minutes.” he said, not taking his eyes off of the uncoloured newspaper.
“What?” i questioned him.
“well surely you didnt expect me to drive you to school hun. I have to finish unpacking everything, and most importantly go out looking for a job”
“oh . right” i replied with my voice trailing off.
As i chugged down the last of my orange juice the doorbell rang . I stood up and jogged to the door. I opened it and there stood an average height boy with shaggy blonde hair wearing light blue board shorts and a white hollister shirt. Im assuming this was my cousin - Chaz. He leaned against the porch, not taking a single glance at me.
“Alright, Im Chaz, you must be Faith. I’m taking you to school so lets g- woah” he said, possibly revolted.
Im assuming it because of my hair…
“Your hair is an amazing shade of red” he finished .
I smiled politely, trying to hide the fact that i was surprised.
“Soo, lets go !” he said, leading me to his car.
Mustang. Not bad, cousin. Not bad at all. He opened the passenger door for me.
“Why thank you” i said , stepping in.
He got into the front seat and put his key into ignition causing the engine to roar. We exchanged facts about ourselves before we reached Mackenzie Heights. Students were in clumps, talking and laughing. As Chaz pulled into a parking spot, i saw about two dozen heads turn towards us from different directions. Chaz must’ve been popular. My stomach twisted into a knot and my heart raced. Chaz got out of his car. I saw a particular group of people looking as if expecting him to walk towards them, but instead he turned and opened the car door for me. He offered a hand, which politely took. He lightly pulled me and up and i swung my backpack over my shoulders.
“See that group of boys? Thats where I belong. I know you’ll make fiends real quick” he promised. “Oh but dont think I’m leaving you alone. You can hang with us until you’re comfortable on your own? okay?” he added.
“Okay” i confirmed.
We finally reached the group of people. All were some-what buff, like Chaz, and they all had the same taste of fashion.
“Heey, Chaz!” one boy hollared. “Whose this young lady?” he said, leaning back and eyeing me up and down.
One whistled, another cooed “daayumm”, and the rest checked me out or bit down on their bottom lips. Pigs. I dont know how Chaz was friends with these - things. But there was one boy with deep ocean blue eyes, short black hair and a perfect face structure that looked down at his sneakers, as if ashamed to be associated with this group of people.
Chaz stepped infront of me, protectively. “Guys, lay off. Shes my cousin and shes new in town.”
Before one boy could reply, the school bell buzzed and students rushed inside from all different directions.
Thats the end of this chapter (: I hope you liked it ! If not, well, im sorry and im glad you took the time to stop by and read it. -Sam
