11. Taken? And Dinner

I stare at my screen in shock. How could he ask her out? I could feel tears well up in my eyes, "I'm gonna do my homework now." I say to Kayla. I head to my room and close the door. I stare at my wall in a daze, it's her first day here, how could her ask her out?! I pull out all my homework and try to distract myself. But I can't, I can't stop thinking about it. I throw my head down on my desk and close my eyes. Great, my life is already messed up, now I can't even like a guy that is single. I realize I hadn't responded to Ember so I grab my phone and text her,

Thts great! Wht did u say?

She replied almost immediately,

I told him tht I would think about it, I mean I just moved here so...

Yeah, I understand that.

So he was still single, but he likes Ember. I feel a little bit better, but not much. I make myself sit down and do my homework. I really needed to get my grades up, which means doing homework.

********************************************************************************

"Dinner's ready!" My mom yells. I jump up from my homework and run to the kitchen. I see Kayla and Liliana already sitting at the table. I sit down next to Liliana and place my napkin on my lap. My mom made chicken and rice, Liliana's favorite. We all start eating and talk about our day. Kayla talks about her job and the annoying people she meets there. My mom works from home, she creates websites for companies. 

"So what did you do today?" Kayla asks me.

"Um, in Drama I sang."

"That's nice. What song?"

"Home."

"Cool." We talk and laugh the rest of the meal, after we are all done I go back to m room and turn on my music. I sing along to Katy Perry's The One That Got Away,

 

"Summer after high school when we first met We make-out in your Mustang to Radiohead And on my 18th Birthday We got matching tattoos Used to steal your parents' liquor And climb to the roof Talk about our future Like we had a clue Never planned that one day I'd be losing you In another life I would be your girl We keep all our promises Be us against the world In another life I would make you stay So I don't have to say You were the one that got away The one that got away I was June and you were my Johnny Cash Never one without the other We made a pact Sometimes when I miss you I put those records on  Someone said you had your tattoo removed Saw you downtown singing the Blues It's time to face the music I'm no longer your muse But in another life I would be your girl We keep all our promises Be us against the world In another life I would make you stay So I don't have to say You were the one that got away The one that got away The one The one that got away All this money can't buy me a time machine  Can't replace you with a million rings  I shoulda told you what you meant to me  Cause now I pay the price In another life I would be your girl We keep all our promises Be us against the world In another life I would make you stay So I don't have to say You were the one that got away The one that got away The one In another life I would make you stay So I don't have to say You were the one that got away The one that got away"   I smile to myself, I hit every note. I throw all my homework aside and go on my computer and stare at pictures of the place I wish I could be, London. I have always dreamed of living there. I love the culture and the accents. It really inspires me. I pull out my song book and start writing down lyrics as the flow into my head, I hum a little to try to get a beat going through me, I tap my foot on the side of my bed and belt out the song I just wrote. It really expresses what I'm feeling right now.     **A/N** I know I haven't updated in for ever!! Sorry, and I know it's short, will try to write more later!!
