True Colours

Silver Birch High School is the perfect place to start over. To forget. All she needed was a good first impression and her best friend Kayla Brent at her side.

At least that's what Laryssa Forest thought when she first entered the gorgeous, stone academy. But will a group of five guys, some unkind words and accidentally falling in love change all of her perfectly laid plans? And more importently, will the scars of the past she's been trying so hard to seal be reopened? See what happens when Laryssa is forced to reveal her True Colours.


This is my first (of hopefully many) fan fiction. I would appreciate any feedback as long as it's stated kindly....after all, nobobys perfect! I'm so excited and hope you'll read, like, comment and maybe even favourite "True Colours". Enjoy! :)x

2. New Beginnings

Laryssa's P.O.V.

I woke with start and sat upright, eyes wide. My breath came out in short, fast gasps and my forehead and back were soaked with sweat. Why was this always happening to me? For goodness sakes, it was five in the morning! I crawled out of bed and clambered into the bathroom. Might as well use the extra time to do something productive. After having a much needed shower, I pulled out my straightener and began to slowly straighten the mess of corkscrew curls I called my hair. My thoughts drifted back to the nightmare but I instantly snapped back to reality. Today was the day I was going to start at Silver Birch High School. The day I was going to start over, to forget. I smiled to myself at the thought. I wasn't going to let something as stupid as the past ruin my day.

After I was satisfied with my hair I decided to put on some light makeup. I normally didn't put on anything besides lip gloss, it just wasn't my thing. I mean why bother piling on the makeup if your face looked fine on it's own? But today was different. I hastily applied a clear coat of mascara, some eye shadow and a swipe of mascara. Satisfied with my appearance, I smiled at my reflection. Everything was going to be absolutely fine.

My happy thoughts were interrupted by my cell phone ringing. Ed Sheeran's beautiful voice filled the room as I scampered around, frantically searching. "Uh, think Laryssa think!" I muttered, frustrated, to myself. Many misplaced objects later, I found my phone. The screen read: MISSED CALL from KAYLATHESEXYBEAST;). A small giggle escaped my lips at the funny name. I had sure as the sun not written that! Smirking, I decided to listen to the voice mail: "Hey girl hey!" Kayla's loud, energetic voice erupted through the speakers, making me wince. "Sooooo I'm like five minutes from your house...you better be ready when I get there or I swear to god you're walking! Loooooove youuuuuuu!"

The first thing I did was look at the clock. 8:26am. Great, I was going to be late for my first day of school. So much for a good first impression. As I gathered up my binders and notebooks I shot a sad glance at my trashed room. Whatever...it's not like anyone besides my mum and Kayla will be coming over.

I strode confidently outside and and sat on the wooden swing on my front porch. I loved to sit there while I was a kid, playing imagination games while my parents laughed loudly from the house, making fun of strange clients or talking about the latest New Scientist magazine. I abruptly stopped remembering. There was no way I could go back there...where the good memories were faded by the bad. Not today. When I looked up from my feet I noticed Kayla in her silver MG, staring at me. She was wearing a stylish, white t-shirt with a floral design and clean, dark skinny jeans. A slight smile was settled over her lips as she called to me sarcastically "We can sit here all day if you'd like!" I got to my feet and walked to her slowly.  All of my many misfortunes raced through my mind, causing me to stop in my tracks. But this time Kayla's reassuring smile made me move, forced my body forward and towards the car. This was the only way for me to move on and get better. I wasn't backing down now.
