Elena Gray is a student at Harper Academy, school for the (Rich) young. Even though her family doesn't have enough money to send her, Elena's grades are so perfect that she is given a full scholarship. There, she makes fast friends in the school's art club, and choir. But when she bumps into school celebrity Cameron Blake, she runs for the hills. Unfortunately for Elena, Cam falls hard for her. Cameron doesn't normally have to work for girls, but Elena comes with many challenges for the popular boy. Elena doesn't understand how Cam could possibly like her, so can he make her stay long enough to see it?


6. Weekend of New

~Elena's P.O.V~

What the heck is wrong with me?

Not only had I given Cam my phone number, but I had agreed to go to some party with him.

It's like I don't even know myself when I'm talking to him. I don't know what happened.

"Hey, so about that party tomorrow..."

"It's going to be awesome! I'm really excited that you agreed to come." Cam said.

Crap. There's no way I can say no to that.

"It'll be really awesome," I finally said, mentally kicking myself.

"Goodnight Elena," Cam said.

He can be really sweet, for a guy with his kind of reputation. He acts so differently than I would have expected.

That's probably the reason I felt so weird about him. I just didn't know how he was going to act: Whether he would act like I always thought he would, or keep pretending to be a sweet guy.

"Earth to Elena," Matt said.

I jolted, and looked at him apologetically. "Sorry, I was thinking."

"It's cool," he said, grinning.

Jenna smirked at me from where she was leaning against her car. Jason was standing on my left, and Ben was across from me.

"Jay. You're coming to the game this Sunday right?" Ben asked.

"What game?" I asked him, before Jason could answer.

"We're on the Varsity soccer team. We have a really important game on Sunday." Jason said.

"They're supposed to win it and keep going in the tournament to try for the trophy," said Matt.

Jenna looked excited now. "Elena and I can come to it to support you guys! And we could talk to your teammates some..." She winked at me.

Matt considered this. "You could come and sit with me behind the player's bench."

"That would be so awesome," I finally said, and smiled at Jenna.

Ben looked thoughtful. "That would be pretty cool. We'd have our own cheerleaders right behind us."

Jenna punched him.


"You deserved it," I laughed. "I'm not a cheerleader."

"So you won't cheer for us?" Jason said, with puppy dog eyes.

Matt grinned, and picked up on the joke. "Yeah... That's a bummer. I really wanted someone to cheer."

"We will cheer, you idiots. We're just not wearing those slutty cheer uniforms."

"Bummer," Ben said, earning himself another punch from Jenna.

"That settles it," Matt said, clapping his hands once.

"Alright then," I said, "we'll be there. Jenna can just pick me up in time for the game."

"Cool." They all agreed.

"So, guys," I started. "Have you heard of that party this Saturday?"

"The one at Danny's?" Jason said, jaw dropping. "How do you, a newbie, already know about that?"

"I just know. Anyone interested in going?" I asked.

"There's no way you're actually serious," said Matt.

"Yeah, since when have we ever wanted to go to those?" Ben said, grimacing.

"Well, it turns out I'm already going. It would really be so much better if you guys came too."

"I can go," Jenna said.

"Alright." I turned to Matt and raised my eyebrows.

"If you're going, I will too. You're going to need someone to protect you from those idiots."

"I'll go too. Who knows how stupid they could be." Jason added.

"I can't. I really wish I could, but Rachel asked me to help her take care of her neighbors beasts," Ben said.

"Beasts?" I asked curiously.

"They have these giant dogs that are bigger than me," said Jenna. "They're kind of scary if you're all alone. Although, all they do is lick you to death."

"So, it's just me, Matt and Jason?" I asked, to be sure.

"Yup. I'll pick you guys up okay?" Matt said, putting his arm around my shoulders.

I hugged him. "Sounds great. See you guys later."

They all waved, and said goodbye. I followed Jenna to her car, and got into the passenger seat.

"Don't let Jason hog you the whole time. Matt will want to hang out some too," she said immediately.

"I won't."

"So, spill." She urged. "How do you know about the party? Was it Cam?"

I paused, and then nodded slightly.

She squealed so loudly that it startled me. "That's great! Now you guys can hang out a little!"

"Why would I want to do that?"

"Because you're insanely pretty... and that guy obviously likes you. Give him a chance, will you? For me?"

"He doesn't like me, and I was going to say hi to him, and then hang out with Matt and Jason," I said, rolling my eyes.

"Elena..." she trailed off. "Just give him a chance, Okay?"

I nodded. "Fine."

"You might want to check out ping pong upstairs. It's really cool."

"How do you know that?" I asked, grinning.

She smirked. "I was invited a couple of times. I hung out with some idiot jocks who introduced me to some of Ben's friends. We played for a while, and then Ben came in and it was really fun. That's how I met Ben."

"Whoa. That's so cool," I said, impressed.

"What, that I can get into a party?" She teased.

"Yes," I said with a straight face.

"Ouch," Jenna said, breaking into laughter. I couldn't hold it anymore, so I started laughing too, until both of us couldn't breathe.

"Alright, we're almost at your house."

"Thanks so much for driving me," I said, picking up my bag and cell.

"No new texts,"  the screen said. Bummer.

Jenna pulled partly into the driveway, and I hopped out of the car.

"See you Sunday!" Jenna said.

"See you. Thanks for letting me hang with you guys," I replied.

"Girl, you're stuck with us now. You have to hang with us. Good thing it's fun though."

I laughed, and waved as she pulled out of the driveway, and drove away.

I turned the doorknob, and walked into the house.

"Was it fun?" My little brother Simon asked.

"Totally," I replied, scooping him up. He squealed and yelled for me to let him down, but he hugged around my neck.

"You made friends really fast," he said longingly. "Can I meet them soon?"

"Of course. A few of them will be coming tomorrow. You can say hi then, okay?"

"Hey girl. How was your tour?" My dad said, as I walked in.

"Pretty awesome."

"She made some really good friends!" Simon chirped.

I nodded, and fixed myself and Simon a plate of food.

"I'm glad it went well," my mom said, passing me the cups for our drinks.

"Me too," I breathed, half to myself. "It's a good school so far."

Awesome, even.
