Chapter 3

(Greer's point of view)

"So you were eavesdropping on him in the store?! Do you have a death wish?" Alexis said, then sucked in a breath at the words she said; death, I'm not scared of the word death, it just a word I'm going to have to get used to so, since you know I'm dying.

"Alexis, don't be scared to say the word death around me, it okay" I said after a few minutes, my phone dings signaling I got a message "okay yeah sorry" Alexis said in a hurry. I open the message, it was from a unknown number.

Uknown number:

Hey Greer, be ready by 12 tomorrow, we got our first task tomorrow. Don't be late.

I read the message and reply saying ok and that I won't be late. I smiled at that I won't be late and changed it contact name to 'william'

"Greer? GREER!?" I snapped out of my zone and replied "yes? Sorry I was texting William back" I said, smiling. "Wait your talking to him?!" Emily said squealing, I giggle "yeah he texted me and told me that we have our first task on the bucket list tomorrow at 12" I said "okay we're coming over to help you get ready" Sam said "hey it's not a dat-" I was saying but got interrupted by Sam "we'll see you tomorrow bye!" Sam said and the line ended, I look at my phone with a confused look.

Well okay then. Dropping my phone on my desk, I get my notebook out of my backpack and grab a pencil, then sit on the couch by my window. I reread through my list again and smile, there was another knock on my door "come in" I said and stepped in the room was my father "how are you kiddo?" My dad asked "I'm fine" I said putting my notebook on my desk.

He nodded, but then he was quiet, "what's up dad?" I asked confused on his facial expression, it was a look of not approval. "I have to go on a business trip for a few weeks, I really don't want to b-" my dad was saying but I stopped him in his tracks. "Dad it's okay go" I said smiling "are you sure?" He asked, no I'm not sure. "Yes I'm sure, have fun" I said "okay uh well your mom will be here and you can call me whenever you want, I got to go now to catch my flight" my dad said "I know dad, have a safe trip" I said.

He gave me a kiss on the forehead, saying goodbye and that he loved me, then he left. Once my door was closed, I sigh falling back on my bed, closing my eyes I think about what happened and what was about to happen.

Then I fell asleep.


*****


My alarm clock blared in my ears, screaming at me to wake up, groaning I roll over and slam my hand around trying to find the clock, eventually my hand finds it and the alarm clock shuts up. Huffing i open my eyes after a few minutes and stretch, sitting up I spot three bottles and a water bottle on my desk, with a note of course.

Lazily getting out of bed I walk to my desk and read the note.

Good morning sweetheart, make sure you take your medication once you wake up, just got it this morning, stay home today, don't know how the medication will effect you, love you.

~mom

Groaning I look at the pills, god pretzels they were huge, sighing I take out one of each, taking them with some water and coughing once they went down my throat.

"Thanks mom" I mumble to myself.

Looking at the clock I notice it's nine o'clock, I got some time to kill since I apparently won't be going to school today due to my god awful meds.

Grabbing my laptop I watch vampire diaries, i love vampire diaries, especially Damon Salvator. I so fangirl over that. I watch the show for a few hours, once it hits 10am, the doorbell rings, I knew who it was, it was Alexis, Emily and Sam of course. Pausing the episode I run down stairs and open the door.

"Hey girl let's get you ready!" Sam yelled happily, I shake my head at her overly excited self. Letting them in I shut the door behind them and we all head up to my room, "how are you?" Emily and Alexis asked me at the same time, it funny their like twins but their not even twins.

"I've been fine" I said

"That's good to hear" Alexis said

"So girl let's get started!!" Sam yelled out, I flinch once again at her loudness, one thing you need to know is that Sam gets really really loud when she is excited about something.

"Fine" I said, my phone dings and I see it's from William.

William:

What's your address?

I type in my address sending it to him and putting my phone down on my dresser "ready?" Sam said, I noticed Emily and Alexis were lounging around on my bed.

"As I'll ever be" I said

Sam nodded "I love your conference girlie" she said before putting on a song over my speaker, it was god is a woman by Ariana Grande.

(You, you love it how I move you

You love it how I touch you

My one, when all is said and done

You'll believe God is a woman

And I, I feel it after midnight

A feelin' that you can't fight

My one, it lingers when we're done

You'll believe God is a woman)

Sam starts to dance to the song, I sing along and dance with her, as she danced and picked my clothes at the same time.


(I don't wanna waste no time, yeah

You ain't got a one-track mind, yeah

Have it any way you like, yeah

And I can tell that you know I know how I want it

Ain't nobody else can relate

Boy, I like that you ain't afraid

Baby, lay me down and let's pray

I'm tellin' you the way I like it, how I want it

And I can be all the things you told me not to be

(Yeah)

When you try to come for me, I keep on flourishing

(Yeah)

And he see the universe when I'm the company

It's all in me

You, you love it how I move you

You love it how I touch you

My one, when all is said and

You'll believe God is a woman

And I, I feel it after midnight

A feelin' that you can't fight

My one, it lingers when we're done

You'll believe God is a woman

I'll tell you all the things you should know

So, baby, take my hand, save your soul

We can make it last, take it slow, hmm

And I can tell that you know I know how I want it, yeah

But you're different from the rest

And boy, if you confess, you might get blessed

See if you deserve what comes next

I'm tellin' you the way I like it, how I want it

And I can be all the things you told me not to be

(Yeah)

When you try to come for me, I keep on flourishing

(Yeah)

And he see the universe when I'm the company

It's all in me

You, you love it how I move you

You love it how I touch you

My one, when all is said and done

You'll believe God is a woman

And I, I feel it after midnight

A feelin' that you can't fight

My one, it lingers when we're done

You'll believe God is a woman, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah

(God is a woman, yeah)

My one

(One)

When all is said and done

You'll believe God is a woman

You'll believe God

(God is a woman)

Oh, yeah

(God is a woman, yeah)

(One)

It lingers when we're done

You'll believe God is a woman)

I sing the rest of the song while finishing my shower, quickly washing my hair and body, then jumping out of the shower and drying off, I leave the bathroom and Sam had a look on her face, one that you should be scared of.

"Let's get started Greer" sam said.

"Oh jeez" I say under my breath.
