“Remember to call us after your first day” mom spoke
“I won’t” I smiled
My alarm pounded through the air of my room and I bashed my hand on top of it. I reached over to my glasses, that was resting on my nightstand and lifted my head from my duvet. I pulled my glasses on and climbed out of bed. I walked over to my closet and pulled out a simple outfit that was a pair of jeans, a shirt that had paint stains which was part of the design, a pair of brown, knee high cosplay boots and my purple beanie. I walked into my bathroom and brushed my teeth before getting changed. I brushed my hair into a side plait and pulled my beanie on.
I grabbed my bag and walked into the small living space of what I can call home for the next few months while I’m away from my real home. I watered my plant and fed my fish, that I’ve brought to keep me company, and there was scratching at the door. I walked over and opened the door to have a stray puppy on my door.
“Hey little fella. What you doing here?” I spoke to him.
He limped over to me and I picked him up. His back leg was sore and I couldn’t leave him but I couldn’t miss my first day so I had to bring him in. I wrapped him up in my jacket and left my apartment with him. He started shaking from the lack of food and I had to go in a shop with him, which was a cafe.
“Hello love. How may I help you?” She spoke.
“Hi. I’m new so I don’t know whats on your menu.” I admitted.
“I recommend the glazed donuts.......” She trailed off as she saw my jacket move.
She peeked in to see my new puppy’s nose poke out. She didn’t demand me to get out but was considerate of putting a free bottle of water in the brown paper bag along with a couple of donuts and sausage rolls.
“That’s $2.50” She smiled.
I payed her and left with the things before bumping into a lad that was the same age as me.
“I’m so sorry” He spoke.
“Its fine” I smiled.
The puppy yelped and the lad looked at me before looking in my jacket. He gasped softly.
“What happened to him?” He asked.
“I found him on my doorstep” I spoke.
He looked at his watch and he left with saying another word. I walked to the college and I gave the puppy a sausage roll. He got it down him and my tutor saw me with him in my arms.
“Why is there an animal on campus?” He bellowed.
“Please sir. I couldn’t leave him at home today. He won’t be any trouble” I pleaded.
“Well. OK. Just for today and call in next time if you need to bring him in.” He spoke.
“Thank you sir” I smiled.
I walked to where I was suppose to be and I saw the lad that I bumped into.
I put my bag on the floor and made a makeshift bed for my puppy so I could check him over properly. I laided him down in it and used a lamp to get a better view of the area. The lad came over and I cleaned up my puppy’s leg.
“Why did you bring him here and not a vet?” He asked, kneeling next to me.
“I’m gonna get him into one after and he just turned up on my doorstep this morning.” I spoke.
My puppy yawned and he couldn’t drink properly. The lad went over to his work station and looked through his draws and pulled out a rubber pipe. He came back over and opened the water bottle and placed it in. My puppy got hydrated and I got onto working and doing some studying.
"I didn't catch your name earlier" The lad asked.
"Ella" I smiled.
"Nice to meet Ella. I'm Tadashi" He smiled back.
I don't know. Maybe college will be fun.
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. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...
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 . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...
maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...
nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....
Beau Bayot: I like the way the story is told and really engages the reader. In the daily life of a B17 Bomber Pilot that just happens to be a commander of an air-group, along with the hassles of keeping a bomber group running in peak performance during WW2. Banner should also consider himself lucky both at h...
Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...
maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...
Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...
Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!
