Matt and Hayley: Love at First Sight?

This is the first book in a planned series about two 12 year olds who meet for the first time. Simple tale but with a twist... Is Hayley all that she seems?


4. Musical Melody

My fingers fumbled on my guitar straps. You wouldn't know it but I was gobsmackingly nervous! Gears in my brain whirred. What should I sing?I thought I should do a rather well-known song, but my own version. I start slow and gradually build up to a higher speed.

I glanced at Matt and his mates. I had no idea what their names were, except for Stus of course. I kept one eye on them. Matt was watchinging me. I looked back at my guitar shyly, checking it was tuned. I strummed a note quietly. Pitch perfect. ysteriously, chatter from the corner near me died away. Curious, I had a quick glance. Matt and his friends were watching me intently. I looked at Miss and nodded.

She turned to the class and yelled, "Quieten down a bit! You're too noisy! Carry on!" She gestured to me to begin.

I took a deep breath and began to play.

Yeah, I know it's hard to remember, The people we used to be... It's even harder to picture, That you're not here next to me. You say it's too late to make it, But is it too late to try? And in our time that you wasted All of our bridges burned down I've wasted my nights, You turned out the lights Now I'm paralyzed, Still stuck in that time, When we called it love, But even the sun sets in paradise I'm at a payphone trying to call home All of my change I spent on you Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong Where are the plans we made for two? If "Happy Ever After" did exist, I would still be holding you like this All those fairy tales are full of it. One more stupid love song, I'll be sick

Yeah, Yeah, Now baby don't hang up, So I can tell you what you need to know, Baby I'm begging you just please don't go, So I can tell you what you need to know

I took a really deep breath to get ready for the really long rap.

Man, stupid it I'll be out spending all this money While you're sitting round wondering Why it wasn't you who came up from nothing, Made it from the bottom Now when you see me I'm stunning, And all of my cars start with a push of a button Telling me the chances I blew up Or whatever you call it, Switch the number to my phone So you never could call it, Don't need my name on my shirt, You can tell it I'm ballin. Swish, what a shame could have got picked Had a really good game but you missed your last shot So you talk about who you see at the top Or what you could have saw but sad to say it's over for. Phantom pulled up valet open doors Wiz like go away, got what you was looking for Now it's me who they want, so you can go and take That little piece of shit with you. I'm at a payphone trying to call home All of my change I spent on you Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong Where are the plans we made for two? If "Happy Ever After" did exist, I would still be holding you like this All those fairy tales are full of it. One more stupid love song, I'll be sick Now I'm at a payphone...

Everyone clapped. I curtsied graciously. Miss turned to me.

"Would you like to show me, rather us, the flute?"

I nodded, opening the second case.I trembled with euphoria and charisma and adrenilin. I put together my flute and played a quick scale to warm up my flute. It was so quick some people started to clap thinking that was what I was going to play.

I stifled a laugh, and raised the flute to my lips.

I breathed down the flute, pushing my fingers down  on the buttons. It was a famous tune, that I played a lot to my other friends, who I hunt and travel with often an-oops. I wasn't supposed to tell you about that. Anyway, it's called, 'In The Hall of The Mountain King'. Everyone was smiling and clappping along. They all recognised it, as it's famous for being the Alton Towers theme song.

Once I'd finished, everyone clapped again. i grinned, pleased. I'd never ever played it that well before. Miss Inzy applauded me, before turning to the class, "Right. On with your work."

I looked at Matt whilst I packed up. He flashed me a wide grin.God, he is hot. His hair is sooo simple. But, most of all, I love his eyes. So sparkly and pretty! Back to the present, I returned the grin. Miss Inzy noticed this and smiled, "You can join them, then." I glanced at her, bewildered, but happy. "You seem to be friends. Plus, they need a lot of help. Join the next lesson though, there's no time today."

"Okay. And thank you, Miss"


Off went the bell. Miss dismissed us, and I rushed outside collecting my thoughts. I decided Matt was seriously hot. Waiting, though, I was nervous. I wanted to make sure my form liked me, not impressed and astounded by me. Accepted me for who I am. The door burst open and my form hurried out noisily. Most smiled widely at me, and some even congratulated me on being so talented! Matt and his 'gang' came last. My heart skipped a beat. He looked at me kindly.

"Come on! I'll show you our hang-out spot!"

We walked out the block doors and into the fresh air. Stus produced a football from his bag and yelled, "Football!"

He charged onto the playground, the boys following him, also yelling loudly. Matt stayed by my side.

"The boys like you, you know. That's a good sign!"

I smiled, shocked, but I dumped my bag with the others', and smiled mischievously.

"Let's play some football then!"

Matt laughed and threw his bag next to mine.

"I've been meaning to ask, tonight our form's going ice skating and i wanted to know if you were coming. It's at 7, at Sk8 Place." He smiled shyly.

"Sure I love ice skating! I'll be there!" Suddenly, a thunder cloud clapped above us, and a flash of lightning appeared far away.

I stomped my foot angrily, my eyebrows furrowed in annoyance.

"Great!What have i done now?!" I stared at the sky hopelessly.
