One Of The Boys

All Mackenzie wanted was to be your average 17 year old girl, who lived with her parents, had a ton of friends and popularity and happy. What she got instead was her living with her father after the death of her mother and two best friends Sam and Jake. So her life seems to be okay at this point doesn't it? It's not, she is majorly in love with her best friend Sam, who sadly has a girlfriend and acts like he could care less about her. Turning her life upside down. In the end, will she win Sam's heart? Or will she just move on keeping all of her feelings bottled up inside?


1. The Summer Of Her Life

Hey Guys :) First of all, I just wanted to say thank you for reading my story and how much it means to me! Secondly, if you have any feedback please let me know and by the next chapter (hopefully) I will have an email set up where you guys can message me about the story or anything in general. Thank you, and enjoy!



Mackenzie's P.O.V


I woke up with the sun shining brightly into my room, and quickly sat up and shrieked very loudly. So loud my dad had to come running into my room with a frying pan in his hands, it had been clear he was in the kitchen doing the dishes.


"What's wrong!?" He asked, still panting from being out of breath.


I shook my head and then started to laugh. "Nothing dad! It's not like it's the first day of summer or anything" I said in a quite sarcastic tone and then continued to shriek, in that high pitched voice that could drive anyone crazy.


My dad rolled his eyes, and let a small smile creep onto his face as he left the room. Once he was gone, I grabbed a little black remote beside me and hit the power button turning on the radio. I made sure that the music was blasting. Starting up my daily morning routine; wake up, take a shower, brush teeth all while jamming out to the latest hits. After my shower, I picked out a pair of black shorts and paired it with a blue floral tank top. With my mother dying, I had sorta lost track of all of the latest fashion trends and often let my dad buy whatever he thought was 'cool'.


I was about to head downstairs for breakfast when I heard my phone beep. Meaning I had a new text. I rushed over to the phone, expecting a text from my crush/best friend Sam. My heart skipped a few beats when I read the message. 'Goodmorning! Happy first day of summer, I'll be over in a bit. Hope you're ready for my awesomeness, oh and I have something to tell you! I'm sure you'll freak out and be happy for me when I tell you!' My heart started to skip beats, I had the biggest crush on Sam, and maybe today would be the day that he would 'confess his love for me and we would fall in love'. Yes, I was a dreamer.


With a smile, I walked down the stairs to see my dad in the kitchen, like I had expected him making us a huge breakfast. "Went a little overboard I see?" I laughed and listened to him mocking me. I took a seat on the side of the table, while my dad still sat at the head of the able. Usually, the other head would be occupied by my mother, until a few months ago when she died of 'unknown reasons'. I say it was a heart attack or aneurism. I started to pick at my scrambled eggs as I remember the day as if it were, well yesterday.


"Mom!" I called out as I walked into the house. It was not normal for my mom to be out at this time, and if she had to leave the house. She would have left me a note or texted me. I called out for her again. "Mom!" My voice was slightly more worried. I slipped off my shoes and listened for any response and I could hear some sort of music coming from the upstairs. Just to make sure she was okay, I slowly made my way up to her room. I could hear the shower was running. So I walked into her room "Mom! I'm home okay!" I started to leave the room, knowing she would answer me since the music wasn't playing that loud. But she didn't, and I started to question if she was okay or not.


I walked up to the washroom door and knocked on it once "Mom?!" I slowly turned the knob and heard the shower running. But I saw no body, I walked over to the shower curtain and pulled it back. And there I found her, laying on the bathtub floor, eyes wide open. I quickly check for a pulse, as I yelled out her name over and over again. But there was nothing. I tried to give her CPR while I pulled out my phone from my pocket and dialed 911, but it was clearly too late...


The next few weeks were filled with sorrow and despair, I stayed home a lot. Not wanting to walk down the halls at my school just to hear. "I'm sorry Mackenzie, if there's anything I can do for you, let me know" That was the biggest lie I heard, if you weren't there for me before. Why would this suddenly change. I also remember having to talk to the police a lot, about if my father had ever wanted to kill my mother. To if I knew if she had any mysterious sicknesses that she had ever told my father about. Most of the times, I would zone out and not listen to them. "Mackenzie...? Mac? Hellooo?!"


That's when I came back to reality to see my father snapping his fingers and waving at me "Are you okay?" I shook my head and smiled "Yeah, i was just thinking about something" I started to eat once again and so did my father, for the rest of the meal. We ate in silence, like always...


The next post will most likely be from Sam's P.O.V. I hope you guys like it!
