3. Starting intermediate

Once me and mum had settled down from my dad’s sudden death, she signed me up for intermediate. I had a few weeks before school started so me and mum decided to go out and get my stationary. The list had at least 30 different things on it and they all had little boxes in front to tick. We stepped in the door to the shop and saw all the other students and their parents, both of their parents mum and dad. We walked over to the book stand.

The books had a brown covering on the front and a brownie grey paper inside. I looked around to see if there was anyone that looked like they would be in my year, then I spotted him his brown glistening hair, his bright green eyes that the sun reflected off. I couldn’t stop staring, until he looked over at me I turned around and bumped into mum she looked down at me and noticed I was looking at the man of my dreams at least that’s what I thought at the time. She told me to come over to the counter. The tall angry looking man, known as Mr. Hogie added up the cost. Mum past over the money and grabbed one brown paper bag, I grabbed one and started to stumble my way out of the squishy shop. We just lived a few blocks away so we walked and talked.

We got to the end of our drive way and walked up the same moss covered garden tiles to the rickety old deck. I put my bag on the dining room table and started to unpack everything. What was that boy’s name, he is so cute……….. Mum walked into the room and dropped her bag onto the table

"Rose I noticed you looking over at that boy earlier today" she paused "just don’t get your hopes up for a boy you’ve only seen, ok I don’t want you to get hurt"

Mum always gave good advice but this sounded like mum has been in a similar situation before but I didn’t want to ask. I slowly made my way down to my room and opened my door to hear the same screeching noise. I went and sat at my desk. I pulled out a piece of art paper. Me and dad always use to draw and paint together. I pulled open one of the draws and grabbed out an art pencil then I started to draw I didn’t know what I was going to draw at first but then it turn into a face with short silky hair. I decided to colour it so I pulled out a box of crayons and coloured the glistening light green eyes and the flowy brown hair and the rosy red cheeks. I stood up and held the picture up suddenly I felt a rush of butterflies and I knew I liked this boy.
