2. New Beginnings

My alarm clock woke me up at 7am. I got up and brushed my teeth. I hated morning breath. Ew. After that I washed my face. I never understood the face wash commercials; no one looks like that when washing their face. Then I went downstairs and saw my mom, she was cooking pancakes, my favorite.

“Good morning darling!” My mother said excited.

“Morning mom.” I said as I kissed her cheek.

“I made your favorite for your first day.” She said as she smiled at me.

“Thanks mom.” I said smiling.

She handed me my tea and plate of pancakes. Yum, she even let me put ice cream on my pancakes. My mom usually never let me do that. It must have been guilt for dragging me to this small town. After I finished my breakfast, I went upstairs and got ready. I put on Bke studded plaid shirt with a nice indigo coated skinny  jean. I finished the look off with Frye Erin riding shoes and an Emilio Pucci wool-blend textured-pattern scarf wrapped around my neck. I quickly straightened my hair and applied 2 coats of mascara. Then I grabbed my Cleobella Tuko Pamoja messenger bag and headed downstairs. My mom was waiting by the door for me.   “Ready darling?” She asked.

“As ready as I’ll ever be!” I said smiling. I didn’t want to go to school but for my mom I would pull off a fake smile.When my mom pulled into the school parking lot she handed me my lunch in a brown bag and gave me 2 pounds for a drink. When I got out of the car my mouth dropped. The school wasn’t small as I had thought  and it was beautiful. There was an old historic  stone and then  huge magnificent statues everywhere. It was like I was in a movie. Even the name sounded fancy, James Edwards Royal Academy! The first thing I did was go to the office and get my schedule. First period. Science. Fuck. What a horrible way to start off my day. Science was okay, but I liked to start of my day with gym or music, they were more fun and woke me up properly. I heard the bell ring and rushed off to class. The school I heard the bell ring and rushed off to class. The school may have been beautiful, but it was confusing. There were so many hallways! I ended up being late to class. As I walked in the class room the teacher and everyone gave me funny looks. It’s like they could smell fresh meat. I guess when you grow up in a small town, everybody knows everybody. I stood in the doorway waiting for the teacher to say something but he never did. Then all of a sudden a boy walked into the class and stood next to me. He looked familiar. 
“Sorry I'm late Mr.Roger.” he said as he took off his backpack.

“Late again Harold. Sit.” He sat down.

“You as well Ms.Nelson.” he said staring at me.

“Oh yeah tots.” I said as I sat down at the very back next to what I assumed to be Harold. The class bursted out laughing. I heard a blonde girl whisper. 
“She’s so American, she just said tots!”

I felt like an idiot. Ugh. I looked to my left at Harold. Then back to the front.

“Alright everyone, you all know me from last year, unless you are Ms.Nelson. My name is Mr.Rogers and I am your science teacher. I’m one of those teachers who likes to get straight to work, so everyone pair up! Choose wisely because this is who you will be paired with for the rest of the year. I’ll give you all a minute” Mr.Rogers said as he sat down in his desk.   Shit. I didn't know anyone. Then I felt someone tap my shoulder.

“Harry.” The kid sitting next to me said as he extended his hand.

“ Brie.” I replied shaking his hand.

“I think we would be good science partners. Especially since we’re neighbours now.” He said smirking.


SHIT! That’s where I knew him. He was the boy I saw yesterday. I made such an ass out of myself yesterday and today. I was a walking mess. I didn’t argue with being Harry’s partner because no one else asked.  

“Now that were science partners, I think it’s only fair for us to exchange numbers.” He said as he winked at me. Ugh.


I was so not into the popular guy, and by the looks of it, that’s what Harry was. I totally regretted choosing him for my partner. I don’t need an egotistical snob being my partner and making me do all the work.

“I would rather not.” I said as I smiled back at him.

He looked confused. He had probably never been rejected before. I was so not going to get along with him. He would probably spend  all our class time flirting with other girls who were hotter than me and just doing nothing. This was not the way I wanted to start my day.

Notes: So how do you think it went. Was it good or bad? Oh and don't worry I take criticism very well so just throw at me( It helps with my writing skill if you tell me there is something that is not quite right).

P.s: On the bottom is Brie's first day outfit.
