Back to Canada

Anna had always been that nerdy girl from Canada. The girl with the glasses, the boring clothes and the perfect grades. Everyone remebered her as that girl. But when she returns to her old school, nobody realises it's her. Is it her new start, or is it just the same life over again? And what happends when Justin Bieber, who was the worst of all in the past, invites her to his party? What happends if she goes? ...

50. ~ Baggage ~

Anna's P.O.V.

Every day is the same. And they're all bad. That's honestly all I've learned for the past eight months. What more is there to say? ...

School was all I had to focus on, and I'm not talking about grades.

The necklace suddenly felt heavy around my neck. It was the one Chris gave me, in what felt like ages ago. Wearing it did'nt feel right anymore. It was like I had a rock around my neck. Like it was heavy baggage, that I suddenly did'nt need anymore.

Wearing it in school did'nt feel right either. I of course pretended, that it was'nt anything. I was busy ... Busy smilling ...

I finally got out of the shower and got a towel around my body. I stared into the mirror. I hated what I saw. But I needed to boost my confidence, so I moved one of the locks behind my ear, made a fake smile and said: "What's there not to love?"

I dried my hair and brushed it. Maybe I should try something new with it ...

*Knock* *Knock*

"Anna you've been in there for ages. Could you finish up soon?"

"Sure. I'll be out in ten minutes, Mom" I answered.

"You know, we have'nt been doing anything together for a while now ..."

I love my mom and all, but this was'nt exactly things we should talk about, while I was in the bathroom.

"Mom this is not the best time ... How about we talk when I'm out, okay?"

I heard her answer 'Okay', before she left. I admit, I have'nt been home a lot lately ...

When I got down, my mother was enjoying her favorite show: 'How I met your mother'. I sat down and watched with her. I used to watch it with her, before we moved here. I used to want a guy like Ted Mosby. A guy that belives, that there's a special someone just for you. Now ... I honestly don't know what I want.

The commercials interrupted the show as always, and my mom then looked at me.

"Anna, lately you've been ... Different ..." She began. "You're not home as often as usual, I heard you got back with Christopher ... What's going on? ..."

I sighed. I could'nt tell her. Or I could, but I did'nt.

"Nothing's going on, Mom. Honestly I just enjoy getting back here. Sure, it was scary at first but besides that, nothing bad has happened"

Lies, lies and more lies.

She nodded. "Okay ..."

I gave her a small smile. "How about we have a mom and daugther trip tomorrow? I was thinking about getting a haircut anyway, so you could come along?" I smiled.

"All right then ..." She flashed a weak smile.

You have to try new things out right? ...
