Pieces of the Puzzle

Grace lives in New York City, and is one of the popular girls, until she one day finds herself in love with an extremely unpopular boy named Luke. She tries to go to Luke, but will he accept her, and will the popular girls let her go?


1. The Cheerleaders and The Jocks

I looked at him from across the cafeteria and couldn't help but blush and look away as soon as he saw me. I couldn't even think of his name without feeling like I should go over and talk to him, but the popular girls, The Cheerleaders, as most called us, were not supposed to go over and talk to the "geeks" of the school. I sighed and turned back towards The Jocks and The Cheerleaders.

The Jocks and The Cheerleaders were very unimaginative names, but we had been given other names that I probably shouldn't say without having to wash my mouth out. I was part of The Cheerleaders, a group of five girls that definitely owned the school. If we dressed one way, people would come the next day wearing the same exact things. It was pathetic. The Jocks were the football players that we cheered for and there were five of them too, all four of my friends dating four of The Jocks. I wasn't one of those people though, who just dated around, that wasn't me. My sites were set on him, the one who shall not be named. The people sitting at my table Jessie, Emily, Hannah, Rachel, Sam, Noah, Mike, Matt, and Chris were all sitting with their boyfriends and girlfriends, holding hands. Jessie was dating Sam, Emily was dating Noah, Hannah was dating Mike, and Rachel was dating Chris. Poor Matt, he really liked me, but obviously, I'm not interested.

"Hello? Earth to Grace!" Jessie waved her hand in front of my face.

"What? Oh-..." I turned to look at them, all holding suspicious gazes at me.

"Well, we were just talking about going out to The Cheesecake Factory. All of us, you know, like a group date. Maybe you and Matt will get together finally." She elbowed me playfully and whispered the last sentence.

I smiled at her and said, "Sure, I'd like to come, but it's not a date for me." I said as I stood up to throw my garbage from lunch in the trash.

Jessie followed me and said, "This is just like a TV show!" I shook my head in confusion, "You know when you want two of the characters to get together, but they never do? That's exactly how I feel!"

"Well, I'm sorry to disappoint, but I don't like him that way." I said as we pushed through the crowd and sat back down.

Out of all the people in the group, there were best friends. Jessie and I were best friends, and have been since 2nd grade, and now it's 10th grade, so...8 years of being best friends.

"Ugh!" She sighed in frustration.

The last classes seemed to move by pretty quickly and before I knew it, I was at home with Jessie, trying to pick out an outfit. She seemed determined to me dating Matt one day. So not happening.

"This one is perfect!" she squealed with excitement. I couldn't help but smile at her.

The dress was pink, fitted around the top and fringed out at the skirt. This dress was for more formal occasions, like prom, but she seemed to think it was prom tonight.

"Sure," I said "It'll work."

"It'll work!" she tried to sound frustrated and it grew as she repeated herself.

I smiled again, she sure makes me smile a lot. I did my make-up, put on the dress, and did my hair, while Jessie did her's, and I have to say, we looked like we were going out for more than just dinner. She wanted me to look good on the first day I dated Matt. I mentally rolled my eyes. 

We took my new Audi A8 and rolled down the street, trying to smile, but feeling like throwing up.
