Dear Luke,

Our game got cancelled today due to rain. It really sucked because it dried up really quickly and I was looking forward to kicking some Lakefish ass today. I was also looking forward to seeing Jax. Instead, I had to endure a five hour torture session of tennis practice with my Dad and my brother. I hope it rains tomorrow so that we don’t have to swim in PE. I absolutely abhor swimming--but you already know that.

Your friend,

Dear Luke,

We beat Lakefish 10-8 yesterday. It felt really good to beat the “insurmountable” team. CIF’s start on Tuesday.

My brother has a tournament in Palm Springs in a few weeks. I am really considering going--if only for the chance to see Jax. However, I really don’t want to spend anymore time with my dad and brother than I have to. In addition, I told them I didn’t like Jax anymore so that they would stop talking about him every five seconds.

We had a guest speaker in PE today. She came to talk about relationships. Honestly? Who wants to learn about that stuff in their freshman PE class?

My dream is to one day become a world famous author. Everyone says it is stupid--that I should use my athletic ability or focus on school instead. They say by the time I grow up ther won’t even be print books anymore. I say so what? Where do you think they are going to go? Online of course. And who is going to get them there? Writers. Journalists. AUTHORS. That is who. This is my dream Luke, and I want to achieve it; live it--online or off. But, my parents, they really don’t support that dream.

See these days, my Dad is always angry about something- there is just no pleasing him.

My brother is his annoying, mean and irritating self. I mean it is like he intentionally tries to provoke me. He steals my stuff day in and day out. Just the other day, he took my lip balm and claimed it was his and that his girlfriend bought it for him. Bold face lie. Then he says that we are being mean to him and says and I quote exactly “Everybody hates me,” in this really whiny baby tone. Then he storms upstairs to his room. I don’t know what to do with them. But then, maybe that isn’t my problem to solve.

I think I’ll go to Palm Springs….wait. I can check and see if Jax is in the tournament! I’ll check.

I’m going to have to wake up early tomorrow for Extra Credit in Journalism. I have to be there by seven.

Your friend,

Dear Luke,

I created a Facebook a few weeks ago under the fake name Belle Ristona. She has successfully “made friends” with Jax, but he thinks that she is some type of scam. So I gave him a run down of his life. Not my best move. Jax labeled her a stalker cause she knows so much about him and the blocked her. So much for that plan. I will have to come up with a new plan and fast. I have been crushing on him since I was none, and Jax-he just seems so oblivious to the fact.

Your friend,
