Dreams Can Come True

Laura has always had a dream of becoming a writer, so when a top publisher decides to publish one of her stories she is over the moon. But is everything as glamorous as it seems.


6. Attention Writers

The rest of the day could not have went by slower. In all of my classes I was the center of attention, even the teachers had heard about it. At lunch David rushed up to me and said we should eat outside. We went to the corner of the school grounds and sat at the bench. I immediately started crying and David embraced me in a hug. We sat there for most of lunch and then when there was only five minutes until the next period David turned to face me and said, "Do you want me to take you home?"
"No I'm fine," I replied.
"Are you still wanting me to come and read your story after school?"
"Yeah, we better not walk in together. I'll see you later."

When I walked in to the cafeteria, everyone was staring at me.
"And here she comes. Does David really want to come to your house or is it you who is desperate to do something?" said Rachel.
I really don't know what her problem was. One minute we are best friends, the next minute she is humiliating me infront of the school.

When I finally got home, I walked straight up to my room and sat at my desk. I opened another notebook at the next blank page and began to write, 'entry for ATTENTION WRITERS competition.' Just as I was about to start the story the doorbell rang. I had completely forgotten about David coming over. I opened the door to find David standing there pale and shivering. I shoved him in and asked him what was wrong.
"I'm just not feeling well."
"Oh ok. You should have just called and said you weren't feeling well."
"Yeah I could have but we really need to talk."
"Oh," That was not what I was expecting but I knew that it would come up sooner of later. I braced myself for the worst.
"Look, Laura I really like you," Inside I was smiling so hard but I couldn't bring myself to smile infront of him after all that happened."But I think if we got together Rachel would be even worse."
"I know and I really like you as well." I could see the thought in his eyes and I was wondering what he was thinking about. He leaned in and we began kissing. It was even better than the first time. Just then Stacie mad her friends came in.
"Oh. So it is true."
We pulled apart quickly. Why do we always get interrupted?
"I didn't think you had it in you Laura."
"Can you maybe leave us in peace and o up to your room we were kind of in the middle of something," I said to her, well it was more like shouting but who cares.
"Oh we know!" She turned and started laughing with her friends then they finally left the room. At last. We were alone again.
