Take me as I am

Love isn't what it seems. We never choose who we fall for. We just fall for the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time. Love isn't just a bed of roses. It isn't kisses, hugs and flowers. It's fights, flaws, differences but above all... It's compromise and patience. I had to learn that the hard way.

Chapter one

It's annoying when you have that friend who's always late for everything (except parties).Khloe told me she'd meet me by 7 and it's already 7:34.I'm about to get into the hall when I hear my name,I turn around to see her running towards me with a big smile across her face.She gives me a really tight hug,I can't even breathe properly.
"ouch" I say and hold my arms together
"Don't you miss me?" She asks
"I did but I'm upset" I say and frown at her
"I'm just a few minutes late" she says
"A few minutes?you're fucking dumb" I say to her and hit her shoulders
We get into the hall and sit together
"How was your summer?" She asks me
"The usual" I say
"You didn't do anything?" She asks
"Nope" I say
"You never change" she says and rolls her eyes
"How was Kenya?" I ask her
"Kenya is so beautiful. The wildlife, food,culture,people,everything was so lit"she says
" Thank God this time you're not talking of a new boyfriend "I say and laugh at her
" not funny but you're kinda right.No new guy,but the guys there are so cute"she says and gives a dreamy face
"You're insane" I say and roll my eyes
"How's that dude you told me 'bout?the one from Facebook"she says
" James?he's cool.We texted this morning, he's also going to school this morning "I say
" Cool,so you two dating already?"she asks me
"Not yet" I answered her
The principal comes in and says his usual shit of how to behave ,new exchange students and stuffs

We're picking our sitting arrangements by ourselves.we have to do it real fast because if the teacher comes in and sees us disorganized, she'll decide to arrange us according to her taste and that isn't nice.Khloe is seated behind me because she enjoys whispering to me and kicking my chair.Cole is beside me mainly because when we sat according to our register numbers last session,he was beside me and I was the only one willing to help him out in tests.Jaylen sits on Cole's desk
"Let's switch seats" Jaylen says
"Why?" Cole asks him
"Just tired of sitting behind and hey bruh,I heard your birthday party is in two weeks.I'll come perform a song there,no payments" he says
Cole hesitates for a few moments before speaking,"you're not gonna go back on your word,are you?"
"I wouldn't lie to you nigga" Jaylen says to him
I scoff,Cole is a white boy and we all know the 'n' word is for black kids.
"Okay" Cole says and picks up his bag and goes to sit behind
Jaylen sits and sighs
"Sup" he says to me
"Cool,you?" I ask
"Cool too" he says and we both keep shut.
I'm on the grass on the football field while I have my lunch in peace.Khloe is with a few of her other friends .Jaylen shows up and sits beside me with his lunch.
"Uhhhh...what you doin' here?" I ask him
"I came to eat" he says
"This isn't the cafeteria" I tell him
"I know,you're also eating here" he say
I don't say a word to him again, I eat my lunch and he does same.
I want to leave but if I do,it'll seem rude, so I just sit there.There is an awkward silence and for the first time,I decide to be social
"Happy belated birthday, I know it's a week late but yeah,I didn't know" I say to him
"Thanks" he say
"I had no idea it was your birthday.I Logged in Facebook and I saw some of your fans posting on your page.It's weird that I don't even know your birthday and we've been in the same class for 3 years" I say
"I don't even know yours,so I'd say we're equal" he says
"Yeah,I'm going to class" I say and get up
He gets up to and we begin to walk back to class.
I keep myself from rolling my eyes and being rude because damn!!!he's arrogant as hell

Further Recommendations

Rosanne Moroneso: I really like this story and hope it continues. A fed grammatical errors but easily overlooked as I enjoyed reading it.

Raphaella: Au début j'étais un peu sceptique, mais au final je me suis rapidement laissé emporter par l'histoire. Le style d'écriture est plutôt pas mal, on arrive facilement à se projeter dans les lieux de la trame. Les personnages sont bien travaillés, on s'attache facilement à eux. Bref j'ai passé un bon...

FiU: Zum Dahinschmelzen. Tolle Geschichte. Hoffe auf Band 2 über die besten Freunde.Bitte mehr Zeit für die Rechtschreibung aufwenden.

Tammy: It a good book needs a little editing on some of the pages but other than that it is a good book I am planning on sharing it with all my friends who will like it

nizaly: Muy bonita historia y divertida.gracias

Nisha: So good! Love Seth and Sadie. Goodness, she put up with a lot before him! Great read

Mariam Abdullah: Good and an interesting book

2jlynn: Love this series! The action, suspense, the chemistry of those in the MC makes this series flow. Am eager to read the next book, but know the sooner I complete a book the sooner the series ends. Not thrilled with this ending, but have no doubt this series will be read a couple times!

More Recommendations

Annie Kay: The dirt bag behavior with Marcus and erica was annoying and this story was amazing. The relationship development wasn't over time but more over rushed at the end and erica should have lost her relationship with Marcus when he started to be kind to his wife. It was a good story.

2jlynn: How can people do such horrible things... especially to the innocent? My heart hurts thinking of what is reality for some individuals. My life may not be "storybook", but comparatively speaking, there is nothing to complain about.

Deloris McCoy: I’m so enjoying this book. I love the serious side of the characters along with the sorrows, like being in an average everyday life. Also showing the funny side of them. Makes for a good read and not boring.

Deloris McCoy: I like these type of stories. This is a good one. I will be reading the rest of them. Keep writing.

Chaira Leusden: Loved all the books so much. And I just want to keep reading more. Too bad it has to end somewhere
