3. Back to School Night

Justin:

There was only one week of summer left; Chaz, Ryan and I had spent the entire summer messing around and getting into trouble. It was a lot of fun, and even though we wouldn't admit it to one another, we were excited to go back to school. Today, I was walking to Chaz's house. Outside I saw my neighbor walking her dog. I had won the unofficial bet between the three of us; I talked to her before Ryan or Chaz got the chance. Her name was Hope, and she was going to be a sophomore at the high school this year. We got to talking a lot over the summer, and I was really into her. She waved as I passed and I smiled. Summer had gone just how I wanted it to.

The week passed faster than I had anticipated, and tomorrow I would be at school. Right now, I was laying in bed thinking about it. I had tried to text Kaelee, but her flight must have been delayed. It was weird not talking to her, or seeing her at all over the summer. She was still my best friend; I was just starting to miss her. My phone finally buzzed late in the afternoon.

'Sorry, I was asleep. Flight landed late last night. I hate flying.' Kaelee had said.

'Are you excited for school?' I asked her. 

'I don't know yet. We will find out tomorrow.' She replied almost instantly. 

Kaelee:

Jet lag was the worst experience ever. I was so tired from the time change, it was ridiculous. I tried to get my sleep schedule in line for school as best I could, but our delay made it hard to do that. Now my alarm was screaming at me to get out of bed and get ready for school. I fumbled around before I found it and then all but crawled into the bathroom. I took a long hot shower to wake myself up and then finished getting dressed. I wore combat boots, skinny jeans and an over-sized t-shirt.

"Are you ready dear?" Mom called from downstairs. She offered to drive me to school every morning. I wasn't sure if she was still trying to keep me safe from what had happened, or if she was just trying to get closer to me. Regardless, I was glad not to ride the bus. 

'Good morning Kae,' My phone buzzed with this message from Justin. I sent back a smiley face.

'You too Jay,' I climbed into my mom's car and we were on our way to my new school.

We pulled into the parking lot and I found myself at a lost for words. The place was huge, it was a two story building, hundreds of cars were parked in the parking lot and students were flooding the front doors. My mom patted my leg and smiled at me encouragingly. 

"I am never going to find anyone I know." I said, I needed to find Justin at the least. We hadn't had time to compare schedules, so I had no clue what classes he had.

Inside, staff stood around guiding us to our desired destinations. I found my way into the freshman hallway, and to my own surprise I saw almost everyone from middle school in less than five minutes. There was still no Justin. To take my mind off him I pulled out my schedule and looked for my locker number. No one was around when I got to my locker, which was a relief, so I threw my book bag down and opened it. I was glad I opened it on the first time, unlike some of the people down the hall who were kicking their lockers in frustration. I had saved myself one embarrassing story. I threw some supplies in my locker and shut it softly. I pulled my book bag over my shoulder and began looking for my classroom. It was 401, history with Mr. Schramm. There was still no sign of Justin, which was upsetting. Rather than worry about it, I walked into my classroom and sat a few rows back to the right. This way I didn't seem like a nerd, or a complete jack ass. 

"Hi," a girl behind me said. I turned around and saw a brown eyed brown haired chubby girl smiling at me. I waved nervously.

"Hi," I responded quietly. I didn't really want to talk to anyone right now.

"I'm Anna," She continued to smile. I nodded politely, not really interested.

"What's your name?..." Anna asked hesitantly, catching my drift and ignoring it.

"Kaelee," I said slowly. People began to file into the classroom choosing seats at random. Friends group together in the back hoping not to be moved. 

"That's a pretty name, but I'll just call you Lee." She said simply. I turned around completely confused. Had I just made a friend, unwillingly? 

The teacher walked into the room at this time. He was short, but fit and though he didn't look old he was bald. He had a stone cold gaze, which made me feel uncomfortable. His tone of voice was completely monotone, and I knew that I was going to fall asleep everyday in here. After class, I packed my book bag and hurried out of the room hoping Anna wouldn't catch up with me.

"Lee, wait." She yelled. I sighed and turned around. I couldn't be mean to her.

"What?" I asked, choosing to walk and talk. I had five minutes to find my next class and I didn't want to get lost. 

"What lunch do you have?" She asked in a cheery voice. 

"A..." I said slowly. Her face lit up even more.

"Me too, I will see you then." She spun around and headed in the other direction. I shook my head, she was going to bother me until I accepted her. 

"Hey Kae!" I heard a familiar voice call. From the other end of the hall I saw Justin waving. Chaz was next to him talking fast. I pushed my way through to reach him.

"Finally, I was looking for you before school started."

"Oh..." He said scratching his head. "I was in the sophomore hall."

"What why?" I asked. Chaz laughed and elbowed Justin. He began to blush and I was growing confused.

"My neighbor, you know.." He started.

"The hot one," Chaz finished.

"Yeah, her name is Hope. She is a sophomore this year; you should meet her, she's nice." Justin said smiling again.

"And hot," Chaz said flatly. I rolled my eyes and looked back to Justin.

"Do you like her?" I said waggling my eyebrows playfully. 

"Uh," Justin's blush deepened. "sorta," I laughed and Chaz pushed him again.

"Well what is your schedule like?" I asked moving on. We swapped schedules and I was disappointed to find that we didn't even have lunch together. I frowned at him and he shrugged,

"We can still text." He said laughing. I looked at the clock hanging on the wall and felt worried again.

"I don't want to be late." I said to them. I made my way around the corner and looked for my next class. This was going to be a long day. 

 

Justin:

The first week of school went by extremely fast. I hung out with Ryan, Chaz, and Kaelee after school everyday and we talked about what had happened. During the announcements a student informed us when back to school night was, and what activities there would be. 

"I dare you to enter the talent show." Ryan said after school. I laughed him off but then Chaz joined in.

"If you do it I will give you ten bucks." He said loudly. "Swear to it."

"I don't even know what I would do." I objected.

"We will take care of that. We get to choose what you do, as part of the rules." Ryan said crossing his arms triumphantly.

"I didn't say I would do it." I replied 

"Not for thirty bucks?" Chaz asked. "I'd pitch in ten, Ryan would and so would Kaelee."

"Yeah, and I will even video tape it so we can watch it over and over again." Kaelee said laughing. It didn't help that she went along with this. I was not going to make a fool out of myself in front of the entire school, not with Hope watching.

"I will do it." I smiled shaking Ryan's hand. "But if you try to make me look like a fool I will kill you."

"We are just going to make you sing and play guitar." Chaz said.

"You sing in the shower don't you?" Kaelee couldn't contain herself, she was on my living room floor clutching her stomach in laughter. I couldn't help but notice that even with the over-sized shirts she wore, her womanly figure was visible. Her face didn't seem childish anymore... Kaelee looked more sophisticated and it made me feel odd. Her hair was spread on the floor fanning out looking almost like rays of sunlight glowing reddish gold. I looked away and turned my attention to Chaz and Ryan who were looking at me expectantly.

"Tell me the song and I will start practicing now." I said confidently. Music was a secret passion of mine, they just lost thirty dollars. 

______________

Friday rolled around sooner than I had expected. I was a bundle of nerves all day. On Wednesday I entered the show and was accepted. They had chosen a song that I knew well so I was going to do fine, but I had never performed in front of anyone before. Kaelee kept teasing me all week, but today she said I would do wonderfully, which made me feel better. My biggest fear was that Hope would think I was geeky. Classes seemed to drag on, I just wanted it to be six pm. so that I could get this done and over with. 

When the last bell rang I jumped out of my seat and ran to the bus. At home and fiddled with my guitar and practiced the song a couple more times before deciding to put it away until performance time. When my mom got home it was five,I was dressed and ready to leave. We ate a quick dinner and then she drove me back to the school. Performers got in for free, but students had to pay two dollars for a ticket and adults five dollars. I was backstage now with everyone else and my nerves were jumbled and I could hardly think. I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket. I had two messages.

'Can't wait to see you perform.' Hope had said. 

'Good luck, you'll do great Jay.' Kaelee had said with a smiley face. I smiled feeling a little better and waited for my cue.
