2. Chapter 2

**BEEP BEEP**

    I jolted up in bed and looked around. Where the heck was I? I started to freak out, and then I slowly realized that I was in my new house. I pulled my blankets off and hit the snooze button on my alarm clock. I checked the time and saw that it was only 8 a.m. so I decided I had enough time to take a quick shower and get ready before I had to leave. I hoped into my shower and quickly washed my hair and body. I turned off the water and grabbed a fluffy towel to dry myself off with. I peered inside my closet looking for something to wear, I finally settled on a pair of skinny jeans and a t-shirt that read 'I'm smiling because I have no clue what's going on'. I blow dried my hair and left it natural, I slipped into a pair of black converse and made my way downstairs all before 8:45. 

    My mom was sitting in the kitchen eating a bowl of cereal. I smiled at her and made myself a bowl, I sat down on a stool at the counter and started to eat my cereal.

   "We have to leave for your school by 9, so hurry up." My mom said without much emotion in her voice. I have always preferred my father over my mother. She always seemed to be annoyed with me for some unknown reason. That is one of the reasons why I don't understand why she wanted me to live with her and not my dad. I mean if she didn't even like me, why would she want to spend the next few years in the same house with me, alone. 

   I nodded at her and went back to eating my cereal. Once I finished, I rinsed out my bowl and placed it in the sink. I walked back to my room and grabbed my purse, before leaving my room I applied some clear lip gloss, I wasn't one much for make-up.

  I slung my purse over my shoulder and bounded down the stairs. My mom was waiting for me at the front door, she held it open for me and we both went the car and got in.

     "Hello Lexi, I'm Principal Janey."  The principal said as she shook my hand. I smiled at her. "Here's your schedule, and I will have one of the student workers come show you around the school since all they other students got a tour last week." I nodded and took the piece of paper from her hand.

    My mom started talking with the principal so I sat down in a chair and waited for the student worker. After a few minutes I felt someone tap my shoulder, "Hi, I'm Alexandra." A girl in a purple shirt said to me. I smiled at her, she had thin brown hair and seemed kind of short, probably around five feet tall.

   "Hi, I'm Lexi." I said. She nodded, "Can I see your schedule?" She asked. I handed it over to her and she examined it quickly.

   "Okay, follow me." She said and started walking out of the office and down the hallway. I had to jog to catch up with her.

   "So you have Science with Ms. Jackson first hour. Her room is right over here." Alexandra said pointing to one of the classrooms. I looked at her with a puzzled expression.

   "I'm sorry but where are you from? You have a different accent."

    "Haha, yeah I'm from America. I moved here a few years ago."

    "Wow, I always thought American accents were more annoying. I thought Americans were really dumb." I blushed as I admitted that. It was probably insulting to her.

    "No, it's just some girls who act like that. I hate that they give that stereotype to all Americans. And I can tell that you aren't from here. You have an Irish accent."

    "Yeah, I just moved here yesterday from Wexford." I told her.

     "Aah, I never been there. I've been to Ireland though, I love it there. I love the way they talk, it's so different than what I'm used to."

     "Yeah." I said as an awkward silence fell over us.

     Alexandra clears her throat, "So um here is you second hour class, Math." She walks over to another brown door. "I'd watch out for the teacher, Mr. Kensl, he always picks on the students that don't have there hands raised. I have never seen him pick someone with their hand up." She said with a giggle. She seemed pretty girly. I mean she was wearing a purple ruffled shirt and a black skirt with flats. Not that being girly was a bad thing, but I just wasn't one of those girls. I wasn't a total girly girl. I mean I giggled a lot, but I was pretty independent and stubborn. Like my father.

     "I had a teacher like that back home, except if you didn't know that answer you would have to write down the reading twice. And normally it was two pages long so you hand would be killer." I said, laughing at the memory.

      Alexandra's greyish eyes gleamed, "That should be a crime!" She cried. I laughed along with her.

     "And my old Biology teacher would make you stand up in front of the whole class and read the chapter out loud. And if you pronounced a word wrong she would stop you, correct you, define the word, use it in several sentences, and then make you start form the beginning." I shook my head as I laughed harder.

      "Well I'm glad we don't have teacher like that here! I would be so embarrassed!"

      "Yeah, my face would turn bright red when she did that to me. I learned my lesson the first time, always listen and pay attention, in her class at least." Alexandra and I seemed to be getting on well. She reminded me of some of my old friends back home. As she showed me around more she started talking about the bands that she liked. We both freaked when we found out the other was a Directioner. We laughed and joked the whole time during the tour.

     I flopped down onto my soft bed, the school was so big I felt like I ran a marathon just taking the tour. Of course it was better because I was able to talk to Alexandra, we exchanged numbers and promised to call and text each other a lot before school started. It was only 2 in the afternoon but I really needed a nap. I went on Netflix and rented 'Lord of The Rings' I started watching it, but I didn't make it ten minutes into the movie because I was overcome with sleep.
