Becoming An Angel

By nikmariecav

Adventure / Romance

Prologue

Derek and Casey never got along. They fought about everything and anything. Their family was getting tired of all the fighting that was going on between them. George and Nora loved when they went off to school. But school was coming to a close. They only had a week left until the year was over. George and Nora had a plan for this summer. They decided they were going on a trip for two months. Nora was planning on telling the kids after school today. Derek and Casey just didn't fight at home, they also fought at school too. But the kids at school thought there was more than just hate there. Emily and Sam saw this more than anyone else did. When Derek and Casey weren't near each other, they would always talk about each other.

"Em, I can't believe that Derek did this!"

Casey looked at her locker that was covered in embarrassing photos. She couldn't believe how much effort that Derek put into this. She knew they didn't get along and Derek always found ways to make Casey make a fool out of herself. This was a step worse than she could imagine. This was taking pictures of her and letting everyone see some of her moments that no one should see at all.

"Casey, don't let this bother you!"

"Fine let's go we don't want to be late."

They started to walk towards English class. On the way Derek bumped into Casey. Casey wanted nothing to do with him. She hated to see how Derek always got to win. Nothing bad ever happened to him. He was always on the top and she always seemed to be the one of the bottom fighting to keep up with him. She was tired of keeping up with him, she was finally reaching her breaking point with him.

"Derek! Watch out!"

"You should be talking!"

"Why are you such an ass Derek!?"

"I don't know why Princess!"

"Don't call me princess!"

Sam and Emily slowly walked away to head to class they really didn't want to deal with this fight. They were getting tired with how much they would fight now. It had nothing to do with anything of great substance. It would always start the same way too. Derek would always start the fight, and Casey would find a way to end the fight with Derek getting into a lot of trouble. It was the same thing all the time, you could play it like clockwork.

"Casey, why do you complain so much?"

"Derek, I complain because I have a person like you in my life."

They slowly started to get closer to each other. There was a strong tension between the two of them. Casey hated knowing that Derek had the power to get under her skin. He was the only one that could do that. When they would fight it was almost like something else was hidden under the cause of all their fights. They liked to deny that it was anything besides the fact that the two of them were thrown together when they wanted nothing to do with each other.

"Casey, if you never knew me then you wouldn't be the way you are today."

"Ahhh but Derek you wouldn't be as sweet as you are today."

And with that Casey got away and walked down the hall and stopped outside her English room door. She looked back to see a puzzled Derek still standing in the hall. When they made eye contact Casey started to blush. She couldn't move her feet, Derek's eyes made her freeze. She wanted to just get into the classroom. It is always something new when it came to Derek. He didn't like her dating his friends and he always seemed to have something to say to who she was with and how she spent her time. How could she ever get away from him if he was always around her?

"Casey! Casey! CASEY!"

"Oh sorry Em. O was thinking."

Emily just gave her a questioning look and walked into the room with Casey behind her. All English class Casey just kept looking over at Derek. Every so often she would catch Derek looking at her. When class was over Casey got out of the class as fast as she could. She didn't think she could deal with Derek at the moment. She bumped into a few people as she was going through the halls. She knew where she needed to be and she knew how to get out of the halls without getting caught by Derek. She made it to her locker to put her books into it. She knew that he would be right behind her and she had to move quickly.

"Casey, slow down!"

Casey turned around to see Derek chasing after her. She was right he was right behind her the whole time. She only had a few seconds to put everything in her locker and make it into the cafeteria. Derek was almost to her when she shut her locker and took off. She didn't want to fight with Derek anymore today. She could only take so much in one day. She could hear Derek behind her the whole time.

"Casey, I need to talk to you!"

"Casey, Please!"

It was too late she was already in the lunch room, nowhere to be found. Derek couldn't see her at her normal table. He walked over to where Max was. Even after they broke up Casey and Max were able to stay friends. They didn't know why they were better as friends. Derek had his ideas that it was probably because Casey tried to change herself when she was with Max. She didn't really stay true to who she was. He couldn't believe how Casey took off as fast she did. Did he really make her that mad she couldn't stand to be in the same room.

"Hey Max, have you seen Casey? I have to tell her something."

"Sorry man, I tried to get her to sit down with me but she wouldn't. It was weird she always sat with me after the break up."

"If you see her, tell her to find me."

Derek needed to talk about what had been going on. He did feel bad that Casey got really embarrassed by the pictures but he thought it was the best. He didn't get why she was always so worked up about the pranks he did. Derek did everything he could to make sure Casey knew she could never get rid of him. He was going to be around for a long time. Derek lived to make a name for himself and since the McDonald family moved in it was a little harder for the name to come but he did try his hardest.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc .

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.
