Falling

Jess is just starting her second semester of being a Junior in high school. To start the semester off, she volunteers to show the new kid around the school. Mainly because she gets to skip gym class, but also because she is intrigued by the idea of meeting someone new. Over the first month of school, Jess becomes really close friend with the new student, but who wouldn't become best friends with Louis Tomlinson. He's funny, entertaining, and not to mention cute, but Jess would never admit to thinking that. Louis is always there for Jess, especially when she gets heart shattering news that changes everything.

2. One.

The sound of my alarm woke me from my peaceful sleep, testing my nerves as it teases me for having to be up this early. I haven't had to use it in weeks, being that I have been on Winter Break and have been able to sleep all morning, sometimes even into the afternoon. It was surely mocking me.

As most Winter breaks go, I hardly ever left the house, or my room for that matter. I gained at least four pounds in purely cookies, another two in ham. It was nothing special. Just like every other year. And, of course, school is back with a rather loud bang. I woke up feeling disoriented and groggy, a combination that can only mean one thing: It's time to go back to school.

I have been dreading the fateful day that marks my final semester as a Junior in high school all break. It means going back to the building everyday, seeing the same faces in that halls, and sitting in the same seat, staring at the same boring spot on the wall, until May. I know everything about everyone in my grade, which comes with going to a small school in a small town. It's not hard to get caught in everyone's drama, which is why I tend to stick to my group of friends and pretend like none of the other students are there. Which has caused me to only have five friends, Abigail, Bentley, Garret, Hannah, and Jenna.

And that's why I volunteered to show a new student around the school. The principal of my high school, Mr. Zibel, told me something about how a familiar face can help a new student feel more comfortable, so they are going to be in all of my classes so they can have a 'quick and easy adjustment'. I'm basically this kids chaperone, but I can't complain that much, I get to miss all of my morning classes, including gym, to give the new student a tour.

Even though the town I live in is smaller than a grain of sand, we have a very big high school. It's one of the top school in the state: the teachers know exactly what their doing and becoming honor students is engraved in our brains since kindergarten. For the past ten years, more than half of the graduating classes have graduated with high honors and have gone on to some of the top colleges in the nation. And let's not forget that our football team has been number one in their district for the past five years, if you care about that kind of thing. If you have the right attitude, you can learn a lot at my high school.

When I arrived at school, I met my friends at our usual table in the cafeteria. As I said before, my group of friends consists of Abigail, Bentley, Garret, Hannah, and Jenna. We have all been friends since elementary school and they are practically family to me now. Bentley and Abigail are a couple, as are Garret and Hannah, which leaves Jenna, who's parents won't let her have a boyfriend until she's eighteen, and me, who hasn't found anyone good enough to stay with for more than two dates. It can get quite awkward a lot of the time, since the two couples always get preoccupied in each other and forget that Jenna and I are even with them. But, that has caused Jenna and I to become closer than the rest, so it all worked out in the end.

“How was your break?” Jenna asked all of us.

“Mine was so boring. Garret was away the whole time, so we didn't get to talk much,” Hannah complained, wrapping her arms around her boyfriend's waist.

Garret kissed the top of her head, saying, “Sorry babe. I had to visit family, you knew that,” He looked up at all of us, “My break consisted of hockey and video games. You?” He nodded towards Bentley.

“Eh. It could've been better,” He responded, not looking away from Abigail, who was whispering something in his ear.

“Same.” I added. “Mine was uneventful, like always. I stayed in my room the whole time. Jenna?”

“My parents finally got me a car,” She smiled.

“What kind of car is it?” Garret asked her.

“I don't know, I don't speak car. All I know is that it's blue.”

“I want a car,” Abigail said, scrunching up her nose.

“What kind of car do you want? I can help you look for one,” Garret offered.

“Why are you so obsessed with cars?” Hannah asked.

I tuned them out, looking at the clock on the wall. 7:57 am. I had to meet Mr. Zibel in his office in three minutes.

“I'm gonna head off now, guys,” I told them, picking up my bag.

“Where are you going?” Jenna asked.

“She has to show that new kid around the school,” Bentley said. “Text me if their a freak.”

I rolled my eyes, “Sure thing, Bentley. See you guys at lunch.”

As I made my way into the main office, I greeted Mr. Zibel's secretary, Mrs. Offerman, who informed me that Mr. Zibel would be out in a minute to take me back to his office. I thanked her and took a seat in one of the chairs against the wall to wait for Mr. Zibel.

“Hello, Jess, good to see you,” Mr. Zibel greeted me as he approached the chair I was seated in. “How was your break?”

I stood up to shake his hand, telling him, “It was pretty good. I slept the whole time. How was yours?”

“It was great, thank you for asking. My family and I went to Mexico for two weeks, it was spectacular.”

“Sounds like it,” I smiled politely.

“Well, if you'll follow me back to my office, I'll introduce you to our new student,” Mr. Zibel said, clapping his hands together. He does that a lot. When we reached his office, he stepped inside first and took a seat behind his desk, leaving me to stand at the door. “Jess, this is our new student, Louis.”

“Hi, I'm Louis,” he smiled, holding his hand out for me.

“I'm Jess,” I smiled back, shaking his hand. “I'm the girl your stuck with for the rest of the year.”

“Why don't you two sit down. I just need to go over a couple more things for Louis, then you can start your tour.”

“Sounds good to me,” Louis said, smiling at me again. I smiled back, my stomach flipping.

While Mr. Zibel talked to Louis about school policies and had him sign the 'commitment to graduate' contact that everyone had to sign as freshmen, I took out my phone and texted Jenna.

To Jenna: 9-1-1 the new kid is HOT. AND BRITISH!
