Chapter 1

[Skylar]

“Sky”

“Sky!” I tug my ear buds when I heard someone is calling me. Yup, this is me Skylar Thomson a typical high school student with a huge obsession toward bands and one thing that I always go with is my ear bud and my Ipod.

“Sky wait up!” I turn to face the familiar voice calling me. Hayley. Hayley Greene is my best friend since seventh grade and she knows everything about my current obsession. Fortunately, we share the same interest which is the best thing in the world. She was my only partner in fangirl-ing and we both will freak out suddenly in the middle of our conversation talking about our silly fantasy but guess what? When it comes to fangirl the world is ours and we don’t give a shit. The hormones in a fangirl are way too much to handle sometimes.

“Did you know that TSE is going to do a show this 20th school annual celebration! Oh My God! This is going to be the greatest school annual of the year ever!” she freaks out, I am freaking out even more. TSE is going to do a show? Holy shit, okay let me introduce you a little detail.

The Shadow Empire or TSE is our school band which mostly involved in rock genre and was formed last year by one of the heartthrob sophomore Kyle Hogan but he’s a senior now.

They became famous by uploading their covers on Youtube and me as a creepy stalker never missed watching their videos 24/7 well, that’s when I first saw them. They started over a year and start making shows in an event invitation or jamming along the street for fun.

“So are you going?” I ask.

“Duh, of course. Who would miss seeing them perform,” she scoffed and I chuckle a bit.

“People would die to see their performance. I’m so proud to be in the same school with them and can you imagine if one day they got famous.”

“And we’re gonna like ’OMG HE’S MY EX SCHOOL MATE!’” she added. We both laugh like crazy and people were giving us a weird stare.

“Well, I’d be going now. I’ll see you tonight babe.”

“Alright,” I said and giving her a small wave.

I can’t believe Christmas break is in a week and we’re nearly in the end of 2014 and I am going to be a sophomore next year. I get into my car and drive home, today was a long and tiring day but I am so overly excited for tonight.

When I got home I receive a note saying my parents won’t be home till midnight what a freaking great I’m alone again.

I went straight to my room and set up my phone on my bed to get into the shower I have three hours left to get ready.

****

As I stepped out of the bathroom I heard my phone beeps. At first, I thought it was Hayley she might be here anytime soon to get ready.

Unknown number: Hi

Me: Hi?

Unknown number: I like you a lot

Me: Isn’t that too straight forward?

Unknown number: shit, sorry

Unknown number: Let’s rewind

Unknown number: I think you’re beautiful

Me: thanks? Do you know me?

Unknown number: yeah Sky Thomson right?

Me: yeah who are you?

Unknown number: someone who you barely notice

Unknown number: and I used to be your secret admirer

Me: wut?

Me: How do you get my number?

Unknown number: not important ;)

Me: What do you want?

Unknown number: just talking to you

Me: why don’t just straight up to meet me instead of using text message?

Unknown number: Because I know you will be avoiding me after that

Me: you haven’t tried

Unknown number: I don’t need to try

Me: If you don’t meet me how can I know that you’re not a 70 years old creeper, or you could be a serial killer, a rapist or other person with some criminal case.

Unknown number: trust me I’m not because I went to the same school with you.

Me: same grade?

Unknown number: I’m a senior

I don’t even know any seniors in my school except for Kyle Hogan and his band member. This must be a stupid prank.

Me: If this is some stupid prank I S2G it isn’t funny, and you and your friends can fuck off.

Unknown number: I promise it’s not a prank.

Well, that was weird and he was texting me and didn’t tell me his or her name. Who would it be?

My phone beeps once again. I was about to pissed off if it’s that unknown texter again but I was relief it’s Hayley.

Hayley: Hey open up the gate and help me with my stuff

I smile while reading those text and went downstairs to get Hayley.

“Do you own any other phone number?” I asked her while doing my makeup and she was curling her hair with a curler.

“No, why?” of course she’s not. Why would she do that?

“Nothing just there’s some stupid prank-ass joker texted me.”

“It would probably be a wrong number,” she said

“I guess,” I didn’t want to mention about the entire conversation because it was stupid and probably just some stupid prank.

****

“Dammit, my body is so allergic to this dress,” I whine while scratching my stomach. This tight blue dress really annoys me.

“All dress makes your body allergic,” she was right I hate wearing dresses and I never volunteer myself wearing those shit without complaining.

“This shit isn’t my cup of whiskey,” I said while tugging my dress down and Hayley just shook her head.

“Loosen up old lady. Just try your best to be with it in just for a few hours. Besides, you need to look fabulous in front of your main crush,” Hayley insisted.

We entered the school hall where the annual celebration is held, we were greeted by a full-blast music and a sea of people is already flooded the hall.

“Ayoo, my bitch and my lady,” Dan suddenly puts his arms around Hayley’s and my shoulder.

“Hey babe,” Hayley greeted Dan’s presence and giving him a peck on the cheeks.

What the hell? I look at them in confused and feeling disgusted arise inside me. Am I missing something?

“Are you guys?” I don’t even know how to form a sentence. I want to say dating but it sounds weird in my tongue.

“Yeah, yeah we’re currently dating,” Dan admits and I saw Hayley tried to avoid my gaze.

Oh, my Lord.

Here’s a few details Daniel Miller and I were best friends since first grade and before I met Hayley. The three of us become close to one another in seventh grade.

Well, I admit that I feel left out with their secrecy relationship, come on what best friends are for?

“So, you guys are officially a thing now?” I ask flatly.

“It just a few days ago,” Hayley suddenly spoke.

“So what’s with the secrecy things? I thought we’re friends and Dan you didn’t even tell me about it!”

“Well I just don’t want you to feel like being the third wheel when hanging out with us that’s all,” Dan insisted.

“Are you being serious? So, you guys wanted to keep it away from me forever?”

“No, it’s not like that. Alright to tell you the truth we felt awkward to tell you about it,” I burst into laughter out of a sudden when Hayley said that.

“You guys are ridic and I felt so awkward right now. I think I’ll just go get some drinks you guys can have fun,”

“No, wait. Are you mad at us?” Hayley stops me from walking away.

“Well, a bit but it doesn’t matter you guys love each other and I will always ship you guys together. Yay, go team Danley,” I cheered sarcastically. Okay, that was weird.

“Sarcastic as always,” I heard Dan mumble from behind.

“Oh, shut up Danny boy, ” I scoffed and walk to the buffet table to get something to drink.
