5. Hopeless Times.

I was wrong... What happened last night did happen... Colton was still standing at the front of the class with Mr. Dawn. Colton started looking through the class with his deep green eyes, and they suddenly stopped... On me. I looked away quickly and just looked out the window.
"Alright" said Mr. Dawn "you may take a seat anywhere you like"
Colton slowly walked to the back of the class room looking from side I side, then he walked back up to the empty chair behind me 'NO!' I yelled in my head, I could feel Colton burning a hole through the back of my head.

The first half of school passed very slowly, and I just found out I have two classes with Colton, English and Sience. I met up with Hayley at the caffiteria, I still haven't told her about last night yet.
"isn't Colton dreamy?" asked Hayley with her elbows on the table and her head in her hands as she stared at Colton from across the room. That's right I have lunch at the same time as him too.
"stop staring Hayley!" I said pushing one of her elbows of the table and her head fell and hit the table.
"CARTER!" she yelled rubbing her chin "that freakin hurt!"
Everyone heard her and now all eyes were on me, even Colton, who was surrounded by every girl in the school besides me and Hayley.
"Do you have to be so loud?" I asked laying my head on my arms on the table, so that I would no longer need to see people giving me weird looks but just the darkness my arms crated.
"Carter" said Hayley poking my arm "Carter look!"
I looked up at Hayley and she was practically drooling. I already knew what was going on, Colton was right behind me.
"Hey um... Your Hayley right?" asked the voice I had already heard last night, Hayley nodded her head like crazy "an your Carter?"
I looked behind me only to see him smiling at me while he held his tray of food. I nodded and went back to laying my head in my arms.
"your the waitress from Waffle House right?" Colton asked as he say in between me and Hayley, I nodded again "well it's nice to actually meet you personally... Well kinda"
I lifted my head to see a chuckling Colton and a Laughing Hayley 'maybe what happened with the man didn't happen' I said to myself "yeah" I said giving him a half smile. Maybe I really was dreaming.

We finished lunch an went our septet ways. I went to my next class and was happy the week of school was almost over. I walked into the class room an sat down, soon after more students swarmed into the room all talking about Colton. After that boring class was over I walked to my locker to grab my books and when I opened the door, knifes which fresh blood on them fell out and onto the clean floor. My hand flew to my mouth and It started to get hard to breath. I looked back to my open locker and there was a note saying:

"just because he was there last time doesn't mean he'll be there this time"

It was written in blood, this must have been from the "Man" but why? What does he want from me? Why am I being tortured like this? What do I do to deserve this?
"Carter" said a vice coming from behind me "what's that?"
I looked behind me and there stood Colton...
"nothing..." I said shoving the letter back in to the small space in my locker, then picking up the knife quickly and placing them carefully in my locker as well "what do you want?"
"nothing" he said walking over to a locker "this is my locker I was just walking over to it and saw you"
His lockers right next to mine... Great... That note in my locker proves that what happened last night was true... Why? I started walking to my last class remembering it was Science, a class with Colton, great just what I needed... Not. I walked through the door and sat at my table, when I looked up there were big letters on the board which said:

"Picking New Partners!"

'Great! With all my luck Colton will be my new partner' I said to myself. I laid my head on my left hand looking at then nothing but empty wall. Hayley walked in an sat next to me, then my teacher walked in an soon after Colton ran through the door and took a seat at the front of the class. The bell rang and my teacher took a book out of his desk drawer.
"alright everyone" he said in a clear strong voice "stand up and get in line"
He picked up a hat that had all our names beside Coltons in it, everyone stood up and get in line. Mr. Renton took a peice of paper out an I'm thinking wrote 'Colton Shay' on it. Me and Hayley were alway partners I don't know how I always got her but I did.
"alright here's what we're doin this year," he said as he took out some peice's of paper out of the hat "the boys won choose the girls will do no switching this times the girls will pare with a boy"
My mouth dropped 'that increases the chances of me getting Colton!' slowly all the girl chose names, I was the middle person to choose. It was finally my turn. I dug my hand into the paper filled hat and grabbed a peice of paper, I lifted it slowly. I unfolded one side, then I closed my eyes and unfolded it completely. I opened my eyes to see the name

'Hayley Lamaro'

I looks at the paper confused, my teacher saw my confusion and took my paper, read it and put if aside and gave me another paper. I unfolded it and it was the name I didn't want to see... Of course.

'Colton Shay'

'why me?' I asked myself. I walked to my table that was Hayley's and mine but soon it would be Mine and Colton's. Everyone got to sit with there old partners until Monday. So Hayley came and sat next to me. The class went by slow but I finally I to go home.

Hayley and I walked I the yellow bus and got on. The ride back home was fast, Hayley and I didn't talk so I plugged my ear phones in and listened to 'Everything About You' by One Direction. As soon as the bus came to a stop and my stop Hayley and i jumped off.
"well I'll see you Monday" I said to Hayley waving and I heade home. When I walked in the door to my house I noticed my did still wasn't home. I walked through the family room and up the stairs to my room. On my bed was a note saying:

"if your not ready by tomorrow you'll regret it. Say your good-byes and pack up!"

I had no idea what the note was talking about, I didn't know anyone that would write this note. My dad wouldn't make me leave do it couldnt be him. Right then I heard the door open and slam shut.
"hey Dad" I yelled through my door and down the stairs.
"hey honey" he called back "could you come down here?"
I walked down the hall and down the stairs
"what up?" I asked walking into the family room where he was sitting in the couch looking at something.
"well I got a note from a man at a school saying that your a Hayley were ment to be going there..." he stopped for a minute "there coming to pick you up tomorrow"
My mouth dropped "what if I dont want to go?" I said a little mad and annoyed "you won let them take me will you?"
He opened his mouth to speak but right then the doorbell rang. I got up and turned the nob on our door an opened the door. There stood a man who looked to be in his twenties, this was the "boy" that was on my desk from before only now that I actually see him he looked more like a Man the a boy.
"can I help you?" I asked with a confused look on my face.
"I'm the person escorting you to your new school" he said looking from me I my dad who was now at my side.
"you said you weren't coming till tomorrow" my dad said pushing me behind him.
"I'm just here to make sure she is ready" he sai as he took a step down our porch steps "so just remember Carter, be ready"
Those words again... 'Be Ready' tey stuck to me like glue. My he's was spinning an I could feel my knees weakening, I fell to the ground hittin my head hard on the floor and my eyes catching the last glimpses of my dad trying to keep me from falling... But failing. Everything went black and that's the last thing I remember.
