17. Meeting New People

I was awoken by my alarm once again this morning. The week had passed by very slowly and boringly. Cassandra had come home on Tuesday and the triplets are supposed to come home next Wednesday. I took a quick shower and brushed my teeth. I found a cute dress in the back of my closet. and decided to wear it The top half was denim and the bottom half was a floral print. I paired it with a brown belt, blue sandals,  light pink stud earrings, and pink bow necklace ( I then pulled my hair back into a high ponytail and did my make up lightly. I put on some mascara, lip gloss and little bit of eyeliner. 

 I made myself a quick breakfast of frosted flakes and quickly ate it, careful not to choke. I grabbed y bag and headed to my car and drove to school. Violet had gotten her own car and picks up Ciara now because they live closer to each other. I arrived at school and parked in a spot, scanning the lot for any of my friends. 

I found Ciara and Violet by the entrance of the school, there seemed to be in the middle of heated argument, that i assume was about fashion. That's what all their arguments were about. 

"Hey guys" I said greeting them with a hug and replied with brief hugs an heys.

"You shouldn't wear the one shoulder dress to the Easter party. Firstly, it's dark blue which is not an Easter color. Secondly, it's too tight fitting. You should wear something a little bit more flowly." Violet said. She looked at me for a quick minute , scanning my outfit before facing Ciara again. "Like Lexi's dress." she added

Ciara looked at my dress before saying. "I guess you're right. It would fit the occasian more." she said.

"I'm always right" Violet gloated.

"Okay moving on," I said bringing their attention to me. "How was your week off guys?" I asked.

"Well mne's sucked. I just stayed home, caved up in my room." Ciara stated bluntly. 

"Well mine was awesome. Justin and I basically spent the whole week together. It was so fun." Violet gushed. Justin is Violet's boyfriend.

"Typical." I said not expecting anything less. "Speaking of Justin, where is he? You guys literally spend every second together." I asked.

"Well the baseball team had a transfer from another team come to our school. Justin volunteered to show him around." She stated. "I think his name is Aiden Winters or something like that."

"We can meet him at lunch but now we have to get to class." Ciara interrupted. 

We all agreed and went our separate ways. Well, Ciara came with me, we had first period physics together. The day dragged on very slowly. Basically the order was got to class, sit down, take out homework, take notes on the lesson/lecture, textbook work, pack up and leave. After what seemed like eternity lunch finally came around. Just as I was about dash out the classroom the teacher, Mr. Phillip called me.

"Alexis you seemed very distracted today is something wrong?" he asked. 

"I'm sorry sir. I'm just very excited to meet the new student." I replied half lying and half telling the truth. 

"Okay then, make sure you pay attention. You aren't doing too well in my class and you don't your grade to drop. Right?" he asked.

"Yes sir." I replied politely.

"Okay, go to lunch then." he said going back to the work on his desk. 

I quickly ran to the lunch room and scurried to our table. It consisted of jocks and cheerleaders. 

 Hailee Thomas is the head cheerleader. She is really nice unlike in the movies where the head cheerleader is the meanest person that ever walked the face of the Earth. Then there's Sky Keaton, he is the receiver on the football team and he is going out with Hailee. They were always together and are a really cute couple.

Then was Summer Rowan, who was co-captain of the  cheerleading squad. She was going out with Ryan Callan, captain of the boy's soccer team. There were more of a rocky couple but still cute.

Next there is Nikki Carter, captain of the swim team. Ciara is also on the swim team.

Then there was Justin Greyson and his little sister Emery. Justin was on the baseball team and Emery was on the girl's soccer team. Violet is also on the girl's soccer team.

There is also Brad, quarterback of the football team and Kaden Reed, linebacker of the football team.

Then there is me. I'm on the cheerleading squad.

Hailee, Nikki, Kaden Sky, Ryan and Justin were all seniors so they were graduating this year. Summer, Emery, Brad, Ciara, Violet and I were juniors, so we stil had another year left.

As I approached the table, I saw a new face. And it was a cute one might I add. I assumed it was the new kid so I went and introduced myself. 

"Hi, I'm Alexis Devney and you are?" I said, extending my hand out for thim to shake.

"Aiden Winters. Nice to meet you." he said shaking my hand. 

I greeted everybody else before sitting at the other end of the table with Ciara and Nikki by my sides. Violet was seated with Justin who was at the other end of the table with Aiden.

"Hey girls." I said taking a seat in between them. "Did you guys meet Aiden yet?" I asked. 

"Yeah. He's hot, so every girl has practically been following him around like lost puppies. It's sad really." Nikki said.

I turned to look at him and saw him looking at me. I quickly averted my gaze to somewhere else and blushed a little bit. 

"Hey what are blushing about?" Nikki asked poking my cheek.

"Nothing." I said a little took quickly. 

"You like the Aiden don't you." Ciara said smirking.

"Cici, come on. I've barely known the guy for a minute." I said trying to fight the heat that was rushing to my cheeks.

"I'm going to get some lunch." I said getting up.

"I'll come with you." Ciara said smirking.

We walked up to the lunch line and I finally realized why Ciara was smirking but it was already too late.

"Hey Aiden." she said with a smile. "So how do you like your first day here?" 

"It's pretty good so far. I really like it here." he replied.

"Well, that's good to hear." she said. "Oh damn. I left my wallet at home. I'm just going to go to Violet and get some money from her." 

"You can borrow some of my money," I suggested desperate for her not to leave. 

"Nah, it's ok. Violet owes me money anyways." she said, then walked away leaving Aiden and I in an awkward atmosphere.

"So, where did you move from?" I asked. 

"I moved from Vienna. I think it's like an hour away from here." he replied. 

"Cool, I just moved a while ago. It was this summer." I said. 

"Seriously, where from?" he asked.

"Princeton, New Jersey. I think that's like four hours away."

"Oh, seriously. I my cousin lives there. Maybe she knows you, her name is Ashley."

"She has the same last name as you right?" I asked he nodded. "Hmm, Ashley Winters." I thought about it for a little while more. "Oh, Ashley. I remember her, she was on the dance team with me." I recalled.

"Seriously that's so cool." he said grinning. 

"Yeah  it is" I said smiling back. 

We moved further in the line and got our lunch. I was either a cheese burger or hamburger with fries. Along with a bunch of  different drinks. I got  cheeseburger with fries and some water. Aiden got a cheeseburger with fries and a bottle of Pepsi. Then we continued on to pay for our lunch.

"Let me pay for you." Aiden said.

"No, it's okay. It's your first day but maybe another time." I suggested.

"Fine." he said giving up quickly. "So what made you decide to move." he asked .

"Well my dad's job was transferring him, so I had come. At first I didn'twant to but now, I love it here. What about you, why did you move?" I asked.

"Well my parents got a divorce and I decided to come live here with my aunt. My parents were asking me to choose who I wanted to live with, so I chose neither." he said "But, it's fine. You don't have to feel sorry." he added as we walked to our table.

I added up sitting with him at the end of the table that was opposite my original seat. He ended having the same class as me so we walked together to Literature.

He sat next to me during class and I had to go over to his house after school to help him catch up. As the finally bell rang, I got my car and he got his motorcycle and we drove to my house. After changing into some ripped black skinny jeans, white crop top, black low top converse and a ying yang necklace ( I hopped onto his motorcycle and we drove about a block or two away before he announced that we had arrived. I spent a long time there because by when it was time to leave it was pitch black outside. We probably spent an hour doing what we supposed to do and the rest of the time we goofed around.

"Well I have to go now, it's getting late" I said.

"I'll walk you home." he said.

 "You don't have to." I argued.

"But I want to." he argued backed.

"Fine." I said sighing in defeat.

We walked in silence the whole way to my house. It was and awkward silence though, it was a comfortable one. When we got to the steps leading up to the front porch, I stopped and turned around.

"Thanks for walking with me. I seriously didn't want to walk home alone, do you see how dark it is?" I said.

He let out a small laugh, "Are you afraid of the dark?" he asked.

"No. I'm just afraid of the bad things that happened in the dark." I said looking around cautiously. 

"Okay then." he said letting out another small laugh.

"Stop it. It's not funny." I said smacking his arm lightly. He continued to laugh, so I turned around and walked up the steps. 

"Wait," he said going up the stairs after me. "I need to ask you something."

"Yes." I said turning around. "What is it?" I asked.

"Will, you go on a date with me tomorrow?" he asked nervously.

"Yes." I said smiling back. 

"Ok, I'll pick you up at four." he said, now smiling.

"Yea. Let me see your phone." I said holding out my hand. He took it out of his pocket and put the password in before handing it to me. I went his contacts and added my number. "Call me." I said before walking inside.I peeked out the window and saw him walking away.

I ran upstairs to my room and jumped on my bed. I let out a huge squeal and started doing my happy dance all over the room. All of a sudden my phone rang and I froze. I dug in my pockets and pulled out my phone, seeing it was an unknown number. This how the girls always get killed in the horror movies, I thought. I carefully the phone up to my ear and said "Hello."

"Hey it's me." Aiden said.

"When I said call me I didn't mean now." I said.

"I know. I just wanted to tell you that we're going to the movies and I wanted to know what movie you want to watch" he said.

"How about The Getaway ?" I suggested.

"Perfect." he said. "Well bye. See you tomorrow." 

"Yea, bye." I said before hanging up.

I added his number to my contacts. Then I squealed some more before texting Ciara and Violet.

I sat there patiently waiting for them to arrive, when my beeped alerting me that I had gotten a text.
