Chapter 1

Katy’s POV

My alarm just went off and I am exhausted, I was up all last night thinking about what to do for my 17th Birthday when I fell asleep. Wait it’s my birthday..........

″ yayyyyyyyy″ I accidentally shouted.

″ what’s wrong Katy″ my parents shouted as they ran into my room.

″ ohhh nothing I just realized it was my birthday, yay I’m 17.″ I scream whispered because it was like 6:30 in the morning.

″ oh okay, any way HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY, I can’t believe that my baby is 17.″ My mum literally shouted.

Ugh I really hate when she calls me her baby because I am obviously not a baby so why does she call me one.

″ ugh mom how many times do i have to tell you I’m not a baby anymore I’m 17 now.″

″ well it doesn’t matter what you think, you’ll always be my baby.″ My mum said

″ okay, well Katy why don’t you get ready for school and me and your mum will go and make you your favorite breakfast okay″ my dad kindly said.

″ Thanks mom and dad see you i a minute.″ I said in a sweet voice.

So once my parents left I went into my walk in closet and and spent about 5 minutes just looking for my outfit. I finally decided on my purple crop top with my name written on it and my skinny jeans with my a pair of my converses. Then went over to my make up desk and and put on minimal make up because I’m not really a fan of make up and think that I am naturally beautiful and don’t need that much make up.

So after that I made my way down the stairs into the kitchen were I saw my mum and dad putting my pancakes on to the plate with my bacon and sausages. I thanked them for it and started to eat it. It was delicious, but then I looked at the time and realized that it was 7:50 and that I had 10 minutes to get to school. So I thanked my parents for this morning and made my way into the garage where my white farari was, I got it for my 16th birthday at my sweet sixteen.

I got to school with 3 minutes to spare. When i got out my car I saw my best friend Ashley on her phone, probably on Instagram. I walked up next to her and waited for her to realize. Once she did she screamed

″ OH MY GOSH Katy you scared. Anyways HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE how does it feel to be 17.″ She practically screamed.

″ It feels amazing and what makes it better is that its Friday so that means that is a half day yay.″ I said a bit too excitedly. ″oh yeah my parents are having this big get together at 2 and I thought you could come home with me and we could get ready together. Sound cool.″

″ awesome I’ll see you at free period and we can leave right after that, see ya babe″ Ashley said.

″ alright see ya.″ I said.

FREE PERIOD

so as I was standing in the hall waiting for Ashley I see James approaching me and I just huff in annoyance because just like all the other boys in our year he has a crush on me but James was different he has asked me out but 18 times and this would probably be the 19th time.

″ Hey babe″ he says in the most cheesy voice that I can’t stand.

″ first of all my name is not babe my name is Katy and second of all what are you doing here.″ I say annoyed

″ well ‘KATY’ I’m here because I go to school here.″ He says now laughing.

″ haha very funny now really though why are you talking to me.″ I say seriously.

″ well one of my sources told me it was your birthday so happy birthday babe. ″ he says with a big grin on his face.

″ well thanks, you can leave now I’m waiting for my friend and I would like to be alone until she gets here.″

″ hold on I don’t think so, why would a pretty girl like you want to be all alone, so I think I’ll just stay here with you until that friend of yours shows up.″ He then says in a really annoying voice.

Just as I was about to answer I got a text from Ashley to meet her in the car park because she had gym so it made sense for her to meet me out there instead of the hall.

″Well as much as I want to stay I have to be going″ I say starting to walk away when James runs up to me.

″Where you going i thought you were waiting for a friend.″

″Well my friend texted me to meet her in the parking lot so if you don’t mind I have to be going, or I’ll be late.″

″ okay well see ya on Monday babe.″ He says with a grin as I walk away in disgust.

So I made my way upstairs and saw Ashley standing by my car.

″ hey gurrllll you ready to get your party on″ she shouts

″ yeah now lets get to my house.″ I say as we hop into the car.

So once we got home and said our hellos to my parents we rushed upstairs to get ready since we only had an hour and half. First we had showers then hit the walk in wardrobe looking for something to where. First we got a long flowing purple dress for ashley to where. Then started to look for something for me to where when i saw a bag in the back of the wardrobe. So I picked it up and opened it, it was a short, tight red dress with matching red heels. So I decided to put it on and I looked absolutely gorgeous.



So then me moved on to hair and makeup. My hair was curled into tight ringlets and my make up wasn’t really anything big just my usual. I had 30 minutes till people would start arriving and it was just me and ashley in the house because my parents went on a quick errand probably to the shops I’m not to sure. But then the door bell rang snapping me out of my thoughts.

I went to call Ashley but realized she was in the bathroom, so I had to go and get the door. I hoped of my bean bag and went to go see who was at the door. I shouted who is it but there was no reply so I just opened the door.......

″Dan″ I say in shock.
