The Reason I Can Sleep at Night

18 year old Carter has been through a lot in the last month. When she finally is able to go back to school she goes through a lot of different things that she thought she would go through before, meets people she could only dream about.


4. Back To School


****************Carter’s P.O.V****************


As I enter my school I see some familiar faces but none that I know the owners of so I just tried to focus on the music I was listening to. As I walk past a group of people one of my favorite songs starts playing, What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction my favorite band.  I look at the group of people once more. There were about 5 or 6 people in the group but the most noticeable person was a guy with shorter black hair that was sticking up. He was wearing a plaid shirt and a black pair of jeans. He looked taller than me by about 8 or maybe 9 inches. Even from a ways away I could see his marvelous brown eyes. He took my breath away. I couldn’t quite say what but there was something about him that seemed familiar.


       I must have been staring right at him because he turned and looked right back at me with a huge smile on his face. I turned away quickly and tried to pretend that I was just staring off into space but as I turned down a hall to my locker I could still feel his eyes on me.


       I sat down on a bench only a little bit away from my locker and put my headphones back into my ears. As I looked at my iPhone the boy that I had saw was still on my mind. He looked so familiar but at the same time like I had never seen him before.  It confused me so very much but not in a bad way more like I just don’t know what to expect.


       As I sat there I thought that maybe I should text my best friend and tell her that I was at school today. I could imagine how excited she would be to find out that I was coming back to school. The conversation went like this.


 Me: Hey Jade.


Jade: Hey Carter. Long time no c.


Me: Well I am at school right now!


Jade: REALY?!?!


Me: yup so get your butt over here!


Jade: Where are you?!?!


Me: By my locker now hurry!!!!!!!!!!


Jade: KK


       Then about two minuets later while I was listening to music something jumped out in front of me. I almost stopped breathing until I looked at the girl that stood in front of me.


She was a shorter girl with short brown hair. Her hair wasn’t too short more of in the middle of long and short. She was wearing a blue top with a big flower on it along with a pair of white skinny jeans. Her big blue eyes were adorable on her beautiful face with a little noise along with the perfect smile to tie all the together.


I stood up and gave her a big hug. “It’s so great to see you. “School has been so horrible without you!” she squealed. “Ya well I can’t say that I have had fun either.” I tell her. “I’m soooo sorry about what happened to you.” She said.  “It’s not your fault Jade.” I tell her but her face tells me she doesn’t believe me. “You couldn’t have done anything to help me. You really couldn’t have.”  She still doesn’t look convinced but then yet another person comes up to us this time skipping the greeting and going strait for the hug. He picks me up off the ground and says, “I missed you Carter!” When he puts me down I see that it is none other than Jade’s boyfriend Ethan. He was also one of my good friends. He looked at me and said “Wow Carter you have lost some weight!” I look at my self now remembering that I been weeks without food for quite some time and I was still trying to gain it all back. He must have thought that I was anorexic or something. I looked at him and said, “You should have seen me two weeks ago.” I then placed my fake smile onto my face but he didn’t seem to notice. He smiled back and then before anything else could be said about my loss in weight the bell rung meaning that we had three minutes to get to our 1st hour classes.


As I entered my first hour class I sat down in my spot that I had remembered from before I had left. I put my headphones in and heard yet another One Direction song called Little Things. I then opened my notebook and started to draw. I didn’t really know what I was drawing so I just let my hand take control and quietly sang the words to the song. I looked down at the paper and started to see a face appear, a face that seemed familiar but I couldn’t place it. Then I felt someone brush up against me. I looked and saw the boy I had seen earlier that morning plop down a few seats away. He had the same perfect smile on his face. His lips moved but I couldn’t hear what he was saying so I pulled the headphones form my ears. “What did you say?” I ask him. “My name is Zayn and this is my first day here, could you show me around?” he said in the most beautiful British accent and I just look at him shocked. He looked right back at me waiting for my response. Then I realize how I knew him he is Zayn from One Direction. I tried to say something but I got lost in his eyes. After a few minutes of us just looking into each other’s eyes I finally found the words to respond to his question and say,

“That sounds good.” Wow I’m such a failure it’s not even funny.


       The teacher walked in and started talking about a wrighting project but I wasn’t really listening. All I was thinking about was Zayn, the boy that I still couldn’t get out of my head. His smile, his voice, his hair, and his big brown eyes, his eyes were so beautiful. I forced my self not to look over at him because I might not be able to take my eyes off of him.
