Love At First Sight

Rachel was a normal 16 year old girl, her life was perfect. She had everything she could have possibly asked for; a boyfriend, a best friend, and and awesome dad. Then everything changed with the blink of an eye when an incident that happened 2 years ago come back to haunt her.


1. Last Day In America

Rachel's P.O.V

   I woke up the sound of birds chirping, sun shining through my window and my dad singing in the shower. It was a beautiful day outside, yet I dreaded getting up. I knew this would be my last day living in America. My dad saw it as a chance to start over. Ever since the incident 2 years ago I've been scared out of my wits to go anywhere. I felt tears form in my eyes as memories flashes in my head of that night. "Stop thinknig about it Rachel" I told myself.

   As I got out of the shower I could smell bacon and biscuits cooking below me. My mouth watered as I got dressed and ran down stairs to satisfy my roaring stomach. I nearly fell attempting to run across the tile in my kitchen to reach the bacon. I grabbed a hand full of bacon and two biscuits while pouring myself a big glass of milk. "Can't forget the A1 sauce" my dad said as he poured some onto my plate.

"I can't believe I forgot" I shouted in shock. "No biscuit should be eaten without A1 sauce." I said chuckling a little to myself.

"I don't see how you eat that, It looks disgusting!" Dad said while pretending to gag. I just laughed and gave him a look. Once i was done devouring my food I brushed my teeth and was out the door. Since my house was only a few blocks from school me and, my best friend, Hannah walked to school. I waited about 5 minutes outside her house until she finally came outside. She looked at me and her eyes widened in shock.

"Do i look that bad? Should I go back and change?" I said in disappointment. I had on a light pink, knee legnth, dress that had a bow in the back. I topped it all off with black flats that had a cute, light pink flower on top. Before i could turn around to go change she grabbed my arm turning me around.

 "No! You look great! I just expected to see you with sweatpants on." She laughed. I was that girl who wore sweatpants and a hoodie every day to school. I didn't care what i looked like, as long i was comfortable and presentable. We walked the rest of the way chatting about boys and enjoying our girl time.

 We arrived at school and as soon as I walked in the doors I could feel eyes burning holes in the back of my head. Everyone was staring at me. I could feel my cheeks get red as my heart raced inside my chest. I looked at Hannah, whispering "Why is everyone staring? Did dad draw a mustache on me again?"

"Haha, no he didnt. I will never foget that day though! It was too funny!" she said laughing hysterically. Tears ran down hear skin from laughing so hard. I decided to join in on the laughter so i wouldnt feel as embarrassed. When we finished laughing i asked

"Then why is everyone staring at me?"

"Like I said before, you look great today. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so" she said while pointing to a guy who had just winked at me. I smiled at the ground so no one could see me blush. We walked to 1st period in silence. I didn't mind though, it gave me time to think. A million questions ran through my head; will I make new friend in Ireland? What will it be like? Will everyone hate me? And worst of all, would anyone remind me of him? I came back reality when I felt a tear run down my check and realized what I was thinking about. I quickly blinked back the tears before anyone could see me crying.

As the day ended Hannah and I walked back to our neighborhood when I turned to her and said "I'm really going to miss you." Tears forming in my eyes.

"I'm really going to miss you too. But lets live for now, while your still here." she said with a smile. She was always so positive. I loved that about her.

"Do you want to stay with me since its my last day here?" I asked as we reached her house.

"You bet-cha! Come in and I'll back a bag!" she sang as she ran into her with me following right behind her.

"Crap i forgot I have to pack my stuff. I can call you when I'm done so you won't be bored out of your mind." I warned her. She just smile and said

"We're both packing up your stuff." She packed her bag and we raced to my house. When we arrived my dad was still at work, like always. So I fixed us up a quick snack before we sat down to watch the Ellen Show. That was Hannah's favorite show, I thought it was okay. Wasn't near as good as Dr. Phil in my opinion. But since she's the guest I let her watch what she wanted to. The episode slowly came to a close around 5 and we both shot up and went up stairs to pack my things.

"This is going to take for ever" I complained. I got out 5 big suitcases, one for shoes, one for breakable things, another for keepsake, and 2 of them were for my clothes. "Hannah will you go down satirs and get me a trach bag, please?" She nodded and went down stairs. I was sorting through my shoes putting them neatly into the box, when i realize Hannah had been gone for awhile. I walked down stairs to see her and my dad talking on the coutch. I just laughed and grabbed the trach bag from her.

"Rach, you dads here" she yelled as I stood infront of her.

"Thank you captain obvious" I laughed. "Well im going back upstairs to pack my stuff, you can stay here if you want Hannah."

"Nah, I'll go help. The more the marrier." As I walked back up the stairs I heard my dad say

"Rach, our flight is at 12 so your going to have to get up early." I groaned and walked upstairs.

"Hannah, our flight leaves at 12 tomorrow so I'll have to get up around 10. You can come with me to the airport if you like."

"I'd love to go to the airport! I'll text my mom what time we're leaving and she can take us all down there." It was mostly silent while we were packing my things together. We were so tired when we were finished we went straight to bed without eating dinner.

My eyes widened when I saw him. I was shaking in fear, my heart felt as if it would explode. I didn't know what to do, so i made a run for it. I yelled at the top of my lungs but i wasnt making any sound. I looked around me, I was in a dark alley way. I could hear sirens all around me. "Hide Rachel" I thought to myself. As i searched for a hiding spot i heard his voice say "Rachel. There you are darling" he said with an evil grin. HIs voice sent chills down my spine. He kept getting closer, I didn't know what to do. I wake up screaming at the top of my lungs. Hannah's hand on my back. "Him" was the only thing I could say as I cought my breath.
