"Mom, what the heck is going on?" I question, annoyed. "Oh, I have exciting news!" she exclaims, clapping her hands. I look at her, waiting for an answer. "We're taking in a foreign exchange student!"

Chapter 1


I wake up feeling like crap. I let out an over-exaggerated yawn as I slowly walk to the shower. I take off my clothes on the way there, tripping as I try to yank my sweatpants off. I look at the person staring back at me in the mirror. I hate you, I think while I plaster on a fake smile.

After a couple minutes of mentally preparing myself for the day, I step into the shower. The steaming water hits my back and all the tension in my back slowly fades away. I stand there for a while letting the water calm me down, before I finally start to wash up.

Stepping out of the shower, I hear a loud crash from downstairs. I quickly wrap a towel around my waist and rush to see what the noise was. As I reach the bottom of the steps I see my mom bustling around the house. "Mom, what the heck is going on?" I question, annoyed. "Oh, I have exciting news!" she exclaims, clapping her hands. I look at her, waiting for an answer. "We're taking in a foreign exchange student!"

I stare at her with wide eyes. A foreign exchange student?! Why wouldn't she ask me first? "Mom, what are you talking about?" I question, with a glare. "Well, I've been looking into it for a while. Ever since your father left, I feel like the house has been empty." she says, looking at me sadly. My father left us when I was twelve and my mom seems to think that I need someone else to talk to about "guy stuff". So, her bright idea was to agree to take in a foreign exchange student from france. I don't understand her logic, all I know is I don't want a pesky little brother. "Please tell me he's not a little kid." I say, looking at my mom intently. She gives me a bright smile and says, "Nope! He's in your grade, and he's 17." Thank god. I'm really glad I don't have to babysit an annoying little french brat. "Well, when is he coming?", I ask my mom. "Oh, he'll be here in about 15 minutes!" she says, grinning.

Oh my god. Kill me now.

I sprint up the stair as fast as I can, and run into my room. I walk over to my closet and pull out some clothes, throwing them on my bed.

Today is gonna be a long day.

Hey! I know this is a really short chapter, but they will be longer as the story progresses.
