I can't believe summer is over so fast! I'm back home in my bedroom and I have school on Monday! I fucking hate that fact. I was packing a few months ago and I was damn excited to get out of here. I celebrated my sweet sixteen in Miami with my mom and her friends. Some college kids that I didn't know showed up just for the drinks.
I loved it 'cause I didn't know most of the people who were there. My friends kinda get on my nerves on my birthday and being away from them this year kind of relieved me. They could be so annoying. Most especially Amanda.
She's a beautiful liar. Almost everything she says is a lie. Every year at my birthday, she'd try to get all the attention. She's the kind of person who lied a lot that when she spoke the truth you'd not believe her. Her lies were hilarious and annoying. I don't hate her 'cause she's really nice. Lying is just a part of her and I'm already used to it.
"Ari," my mom stands at my doorstep. She's wearing a tight blue dress and her hair is tied up in a ponytail. She's just as gorgeous as ever.
"Hey mom," I smile at her.
"Are you done unpacking yet? Dinner's ready."
"I'm almost done. Is Cole home?"
"He's in his room."
Cole is my younger brother. He's a freshman this year and I'm really excited to show him around. He acts like the bad boy but he's my sweet brother.
When I'm done hanging my clothes in the closet, I walk out of my room and barge into Cole's. He's on the phone when I get there.
"I'll see you at school." He says before hanging up.
"What do you want?" He asks.
"I've missed you." I jump on him and he lifts me off the ground. He's younger than me but taller.
"I didn't. It was really good at Rita's without you."
He spent his summer at my aunt's beach house 'cause he didn't want to go to Miami with mom and I.
"Come on. You know you wanted me there. You just don't wanna admit it."
"I kinda wanted you there. That doesn't mean anything though."
"Are you excited for high school?"
"Nah. I don't really care. It's just highschool." He shrugs.
"You're right. It gets kinda shitty to be honest."
"I know," he laughs, "Sean told me all about it."
Of course Sean told him about high school before I did. They spent summer together and he was the first to get through high school. Sometimes I wished I were him. He's the older brother and he's a junior in college.
"Let's go eat dinner. Mom is probably waiting for us."
"No she's not," he chuckles.
He might be right. Mom doesn't wait for anyone to start eating. If we delay, she doesn't waste any time.
I spent almost the whole Sunday sleeping. I didn't pick up any of my friends' calls 'cause my phone was on silent. I wanted to get as much sleep as possible before going to school. Turns out that didn't help me one bit.
I woke up half an hour late today. I took a really quick shower and dressed up in shorts and a white crop top. I took some time to dry my hair and let it fall on my back. I didn't bother to apply any makeup. Cole was already done eating breakfast when I went downstairs.
Now I'm just eating an apple as I'm driving to school. Cole is on the passenger's seat texting.
I shouldn't have slept so much yesterday. It made me want more sleep this morning.
We get to school and the moment I park the car, Cole gets out as if knowing where to go. Maybe he does. Sean told him everything he needs to know so he wouldn't need my help. It's cool. I'll just go do my own shit since I don't have to show him around. I was kinda excited for his first day but he doesn't give a shit about it.
I open my empty locker and stuff my books inside. Kids are walking down the hallway. Most of them are talking and others are making out.
I wish someone could kiss me like that every morning.
"Aria!" Amanda exclaims. She's standing next to Tina.
Tina is a slim blonde girl with curves in all the right places. She's really funny and being around her never gets boring. She happens to have a bad temper. She hates losing an argument even when she knows she's wrong.
"Hey girls." I smile at them, "Tina, are you okay?"
"Yeah. I'm good," she says.
"Are you sure?" I asked and she nods in response.
"How was Miami?" Amanda asks.
"It was really good. I loved it there. I kinda didn't wanna come back."
"I can't believe we weren't there for your birthday." Amanda says.
"Don't worry about it. We can make up for it some time." I say.
"Hey Aria," Leon. It's him. I missed him so fucking much. I can't believe I went that long without seeing him in person.
His hair looks different and i like it. It's darker than before, cut short from the sides and a kind of spiky.
We texted in freshman year and I didn't know we went to the same school before we started talking. We barely noticed each other. I'm crushing hard on him and he doesn't even seem to notice. I thought he liked me too but I was wrong. I'm nothing more than a best friend to him.
Amanda and Tina don't know anything about this crush I have on him. I don't like telling people what I'm feeling towards any guy. It's like no one can keep a secret these days. I don't wanna end up walking down the hallway knowing that every asshole knows about my crush on Leon. Everyone thinks Leon and I are best friends and I'd like to keep it at that.
"Hey there," I smile at him.
"How've you been?" He asks.
"Not bad. How're you? I really missed you."
"I was kinda pissed."
"You weren't picking up any of my calls."
"You lying asshole! I picked up," I chuckle.
"Four times. You only picked picked up four times."
"Isn't that good enough?" I roll my eyes.
I couldn't pick up his calls 'cause I didn't know what to say and I was trying to avoid him so that I could maybe stop crushing on him. It didn't work. I'm currently picturing him pinning me against this locker and kissing me so hard that I can barely breathe.
"I like talking to you and when you ignore me, it doesn't feel good."
"Promise to pick up next time?"
"Come with me," he holds my hand and leads me to his locker. He opens it and gets out a beautifully wrapped box with a ribbon on it.
"This is your birthday present," he hands it to me and I stare at it with a small smile on my face, "open it."
I unwrap the gift and when I open the box, there's a beautiful necklace inside it.
"Aww, thanks Leo," I give him a hug.
He helps me wear it and his touch on my neck makes my knees weak as fuck. I wish his hands went lower.
The bell rings and we all head to our classes. My first class is biology.
I get in and sit at the back. Bryson sits next to me. He smirks at me and I smile.
Bryson is the hottest guy around here and every girl is ready to drop their panties for him except me and a few others that I haven't met yet.
We sat together in four classes last year. He's really funny and flirty. We kinda flirted when we first met but it got weird. I wanted to like him so bad 'cause he won't ever disappoint and friend zone me as much as Leo does. Bryson and I are just close friends. We hang out a lot and he's so obsessed with sex.
"Looks like we're together again." He winks.
Bryson has been playing with my hair for the past hour. It was okay at first but it's starting to
piss me off now.
"Can you stop!" I hiss and he smirks.
"I love your hair. It's really long and beautiful," some girls around us are staring and whispering.
I glare at them, "fucking mind your own business. Get a life bitches!" I hiss.
They look away from us and Mr. Anderson glances at us. He doesn't really care who pays attention.
Bryce starts laughing and I look at him in confusion. "Why are you laughing?"
"Those girls. You scared them off," he says, "that was hot," he tucks a strand of hair behind my ear and I give him a small smile.
"Let's take notes. Do something good on day one." I say.
"Nah. I'm kinda lazy. Wanna help me out?"
"I wish you could help me out," I scoff.
The stupid lesson goes on a little longer and by the time it's done, my hair is messy. Bryson didn't leave it for a single second.
"You really got hotter." Bryson says as well walk out of class together.
"I'm serious. Like real hot. So damn sexy and that ass is just_" I stop him mid sentence by laughing.
"Shut up." I walk away from him and head to my locker to get my books for the next class.
He has always been so obsessed with fucking girls and other stuff but he doesn't always compliment my ass. It feels kinda weird.
It's lunch time and I'm seated with Leon and Cole who are talking about stuff that I'm not even listening to. I'm on my phone texting Bryson. He so mad.
Bryson: she fucking teased me and walked away.
Me: You'll be fine.
Bryson: come satisfy me before I cry.
I laugh when I read that text and Cole gives me a weird look.
Me: I'm on my way. Where are you exactly?
Bryson: you'll find me outside ;)
I'm not seriously going outside for him to fuck me. I'm just going to make fun of his situation. It's really funny when he's sexually frustrated.
I walk out of the cafeteria and come across Tina who's talking to some girl. I wave at her and she gives me a small smile.
When I get outside, Bryson is making out with some girl. Why don't I know most of the girls he hooks up with?
"Hey, get off my man." I say as I stand next to Bryson. It's just a joke.
"Hey babe," he plays along.
"I didn't know you guys were together," she gasps.
"We're keeping things low key. You don't have to mention this to anyone." I smile at her and she walks away.
I turn to face Bryson who has a smile on his face, "so, I'm your man now?"
"No, silly! That was just a joke. I thought you said she left."
"That was another girl."
"Why do you have to fuck girls at school? Can't you wait to get home?"
"You can't force a dick to stay in place. There's a lot of hot girls 'round here and it's really hard to stay sane without fucking."
"You're an asshole."
"Your tits got bigger," he smirks.
He's so fucking horny. I'm kind of shocked he said that to me.
"What the fuck?!"
"I'm just telling you the truth. I like what I'm seeing."
"Let's get in. It's not cool to flirt with your sister."
"I'm not even flirting." He laughs, "if I started flirting, I'd be in your pants by now."
"I think you're right."
"Were you about to lead me to the janitor's closet to actually suck my dick?"
"No! I was gonna take you to eat lunch with me."
"When you say lunch, you mean your pu_"
"Shut up Bryson. Just shut up," I say before he can finish his sentence.
We go back to the cafeteria and he spends most of his time staring at girls' butts with his best friend Ethan. The number of girls they fucked is more than our ages combined together. Leo is so quiet. What's up with him?
"Leo, what's up? You're so quiet." I say.
"I'm thinking," he says.
"Words for a song."
He goes on talking but I don't pay attention to anything he's saying. I'm staring at his lips and wishing they connect with mine right now. He's so hot. I just wish he could stare at me so we could get lost in each other's eyes.
"Ari, why are you staring at my boy like he's some piece of meat," Bryson laughs.
Did he just notice? Oh God this is so embarrassing. What am I supposed to tell him?
"I'm leaving. Amanda just texted me." I get up and Bryson chuckles.
"Nice ass," he says.
School wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. I kinda had fun. I came back home about an hour ago. I'm just hanging with Cole and Amanda.
I think she's interested in my brother which is fucking weird if you ask me. I don't like the idea of my brother dating any of my friends. They're horny pigs who don't care about anyone's feelings. I can't blame them. That's just how they are.
"Does little Cole here have a girlfriend," Amanda says seductively as she runs a finger down my brother's chest.
"No. I don't have one. Do you wanna be?"
"No! You guys are not dating! Amanda, go home. I don't want you flirting with my brother."
"You're no fun Aria." She rolls her eyes, "I'll help you cook dinner. Let's go."
How did she know I was planning on cooking dinner. It kinda creeps me out when someone reads my mind. It makes me feel like they know my deepest secrets.
"What do you wanna cook?"
"I guess I'll just make some pasta."
Cole comes into the kitchen when we're cooking and hands me my phone.
"Why?" I ask.
"You got a text." He smirks.
What text is that? Is it Leon finally asking me out. I'd scream if it's him. I'm really tired of waiting for him to come by. I close my eyes and pray hard that he's asking me out.
I should have known better. It's Bryson and he knows the one thing I didn't want anyone to find out.
- You have a fucking crush on Leo!?
