My First Day
It was my first day of my sophomore year at Carol City Highschool and I wanted to get through those last two years without any problems. If someone decided they wanted to pick on the new girl, then there would have been a fight, but right then I wanted to keep a low profile.
And I wasn’t really succeeding. I was struggling with my lock which wanted to be crappy and not open for me. And I was making quite a scene trying to get it open. Some of the people that walked by me even gave me strange looks. But I FINALLY managed to get it open and get my books for class.
Then ANOTHER problem arose, the books were GIGANTIC. I could barely hold them all myself. I was walking down the hall to my class with the books blocking my line of sight,when I completely crashed in to someone an dropped all my books on the floor. “I’m so sorry.” I say to the boy I bumped into. He was at least six feet tall, he had sandy brown hair and light blue eyes, his face was was very muscular and he looked like he lifted 500 pounds a day. In other words, he was gorgeous, but not my type.
As I bent down to pick up my books, the gorgeous jock asked, “Would you like some help carrying those?”
“Yes I would, thank you.” I said in reply. What can I say, I may be feisty but I don’t refuse free help. As we walked to my class, which was English by the way, the jock asked,
“What’s your name?”
“Nice to meet you, my name’s Charles Barns.”
“Nice to meet you Charles.” I replied. When we got to my class Charles went and put my books down on my desk for me. I know what you all are thinking and NO I did NOT fall in love-at-first-sight with Charles. So what if I thought he was a little good looking, not like it’s a crime.
“You can call me if you need anything, I’ll see you at lunch?” He asked.
“Sure.” Wow, I thought, I just got asked to lunch by a gorgeous hunk and he carried my books for me. Interesting. Just then the five minute bell rang, which interrupted my thoughts. As more students came in the classroom, a blue eyed, platinum blonde, size zero girl who was wearing a red blouse, skinny jeans, and white heels sat next to me. Suddenly she turned to me,
“Hi. My name’s Lily, what’s yours?” She said with a chipper smile.
“Celia.” I said slightly overwhelmed. It’s not everyday that you see a girl who looks like Regina from mean girls who acts so happy.
“Is it your first day here, I’ve never seen you before?” Lily asked.
“Yeah, I don-”
“Great! I can tell you all about the school over lunch, what do you think?”
“Well I was going to meet someone at lunch, but you can come with me.” I suggested.
“Awesome!” She squealed. Just then the teacher came into the classroom. As soon as he started his introduction, I knew I was going to hate this class. Lily continued to talk to me during class, so it was a bit bearable. It turns out she actually knew Charles. Apparently they were childhood friends and always sat together at lunch. At least I had something to look forward to. I didn’t even notice when English ended. Me and Lily didn’t have the same classes together until lunch so I had to brave the day alone.
Lunch came by pretty quickly and I was able to spot Lily and Charles at the back table. Seems they weren’t alone though. When I sat down Lily wanted to introduce everyone to me, but it takes me a while to learn people’s names so I didn’t remember all of them. We started talking and I got along really well with a girl named Anna Kendrick. She had light brown hair and hazel eyes, she was also really tall for a girl. A little shorter than Charles. I found out she was in the graphic design club, a club I really wanted to join, and that we both liked to draw.
A little bit later into our lunch break a black haired olive eyed girl and two people behind her walked into the room. I didn’t notice but everyone else parted like the Red Sea to make room for her.
“You there!” She bellowed and I turned to see who she was talking to. “Yeah, you!” She said as she pointed at me. She then dropped her arm and started walking down the sea of parted students, straight to our table, straight towards me.
