The bright morning sunlight attacked my eyes the moment I opened them. I groaned out loud, closing them again quickly.
Mornings… the absolute worst part of every day. Be it sunny or rainy, I still hate it because all the nice and exciting dreams my wild imagination feeds me every night start to slip away.
You know the feeling, when you think you had an awesome dream and when you try to remember, even the last memories of it slip away. I hate it. You hate it. Even my mom hates it.
I really want to remember how the guy I made out with in my dream looked like - or I probably made out with ’cause I’m not sure anymore, if it was that kind of dream. I always wished I had those dreams every time before going to sleep, but who knows what I saw tonight. I don’t.
I slapped a hand over my face and slowly opened my eyes again to get used to the brightness. Suddenly a light knock on my bedroom door caught my attention.
“Honey, you’re going to school today, right?” My mom asked with a worried voice.
My head flipped towards the clock on the wall and I was sitting in a flash, almost falling out of the bed in the process.
“Oh shit! Yes, I’m going!” The stupid phone didn’t wake me up again! I’m going to be late!
I stumbled on the blanket that I had so comfortably wrapped around my legs when sleeping and fell flat on my face.
“Scarlet, is everything ok?” I heard my mother ask form downstairs.
“I’m fine!” Rubbing my painfully stinging nose, I tried to get back on my feet. After angrily throwing the blanket on the bed, I grabbed the phone to see that I had forgotten to charge it.
Arghh! I’m so mad at myself. I am definitely going to miss the first lesson now and today we were supposed to take a small quiz.
Groaning in frustration, I grabbed the charger and attached it to my phone to revive it for school.
I guess a movie night in the middle of the school week is not as good of an idea, as I had thought it to be.
Feeling upset at my forgetfulness I ran to the bathroom, brushed my teeth, and tried to make my hair and face look a bit more presentable, as much as it was possible in a few minutes. After putting my pants on and pulling a shirt over my head I ran down the stairs and into the kitchen.
“Mom, can you drop me off to school? I’m already super late.” I asked while going through the fridge to quickly find something to eat. Taking out the leftover pizza from last night, I turned around waiting for the answer.
“I can take you halfway because I have an appointment in 15 minutes.” She said and took her bag and coat from beside the door.
“Okay.” Grabbing my things, I followed her to the car.
The black shiny car stood on the driveway and it looked like new. My mom liked everything to be tidy so her car was always clean and shiny, as was our home.
As we were driving I looked around our neighborhood and noticed that there weren’t many people around. Well it was almost summer break and most of the neighbors liked to start their vacation early. If only I could also skip the last week of school. Too bad the teachers loved to torture us with tests right before the break.
Summer was a perfect time to get down and dirty with some hot guy but... summer relationships had the smell of a one night thing so I wasn’t very eager to throw my arms around the first hot dude, when they showed interest in me. It had happened before but when I refused they just chose a new target. Sadly it was clear as day that my body was the only thing that caught their interest.
Even when I graved to finally have some action, I still thought that I deserved better than a one night stand with a stranger. I think all women do.
“Okay darling. You have to walk from here to school.” I was torn out of my thoughts and noticed we had already arrived.
“Thanks mom. See you at home.” I got out of the car and waved goodbye as I watched her drive away.
It was about ten-minutes-walk from here to school, and as I already had no hope of getting to the first lesson, I was going to take my sweet time.
As I was strolling down the street, I saw someone on the other side of the street also walking the same way. After a closer inspection, I found that it was a tall guy with messy chocolate brown hair.
Was he from my school? I had never seen him here before. Although I couldn’t really brag about my face memory, I was sure I would have remembered this one if I had seen him.
He was quite tall and his face looked like he had just gotten out of bed. I guess I wasn’t the only one who slept in today. His hands were in his jeans pockets and the look on his face said that he would have preferred to stay in his bed.
Even with that uncaring look he had, I had to admit that he was actually kind of my type. His body under those clothes seemed to have a bit of muscle on them, not too much but neither did he look untrained. Just enough to my liking.
My imagination started to act up slowly. I wondered how it would feel like to let my hands wonder on that body and feel the muscles underneath the clothes. Those nice looking lips leaving a hot trail of small kisses around my body, making shivers run down my spine. Mm... And maybe a bit further...
Suddenly he turned his head and locked his eyes with mine.
Oops. Caught me staring there. I felt a light blush creep up on my cheeks and I saw amusement flicker in his eyes. I turned to look straight ahead trying to keep my eyes on the road. I still felt his gaze on me and from the corner of my eye I saw him smirking slightly.
From what I had seen, I could tell that he had charisma and he was confident. His posture had been straight even in a state of boredom and that said a lot.
Gosh, why do I even notice little things like that, when it comes to men? I could use that skill to get along with other girls but no, I have to ogle men all the time. Unconsciously, I shook my head at myself.
He was still watching me but I was too shy to turn my head and stare back. Courage, why do you always leave me when I need you the most?
I saw the school coming into sight and I raised my pace a bit to free myself from his intense eyes. As I reached the school parking lot I heard the bell marking the end of the first lesson.
When I reached the main doors and was about to open them, a hand reached out from behind me, startling me.
I turned my head to see who it was and met the intense gray eyes of the handsome stranger I had tried to avoid.
“Aren’t you going in?” he asked with an enchanting deep voice. It took me a few seconds to understand that he was holding the door open for me to get in.
“Uh, yeah, thank you,” I mumbled awkwardly and slipped in quickly. I glanced back and saw him coming in after me. Just as I was about to turn right, where my locker was, I heard him ask, “Hey, could you tell me where the office is?”
My surprised green eyes met his curious gray ones. He really is new then?
“Sure, turn left and walk to the end of the hallway. It’s the last door on the left.” He was watching me curiously the whole time and although I wasn’t used to someone staring at me so intently, I found that I actually didn’t mind.
“Thanks, I hope to see you around.” His eyes lingered for a bit but then he turned around and walked along the corridor I had instructed him to take.
I watched his lean figure going farther away thoughtfully but after a moment also turned and continued walking towards my locker.
He is new here… what a weird time to transfer schools, I thought but then left the thought at the back of my mind. Well, it wasn’t really my business, was it?
