After my mom died, my lame excuse of a father bought a house near where I used to live and forced me to stay with him until i graduate high school.
It's not too bad though: He's always at work so I don't have to worry about seeing him. Plus he's filthy rich...Can't say I don't enjoy that.
Well, I should probably introduce myself. Hey, I'm Katerina Beeker and I'm basically a loner. This is the story of how I died.
Fantastic. Time to go to school already. I finished brushing my teeth, grabbed my book bag, and rushed out the door to meet Aaron -- who's been my best friend since we were five. He drives me to school everyday because I still haven't gotten my license.
I blushed as I heard his voice say my nickname. Me? Blush? It was a rare thing that could only be caused by him. Oh, did I forget to mention I've liked this kid for years? Who wouldn't fall for the classic bad-boy quarterback though? Only I knew he had a sweet side to him. Not even his girlfriend had a clue.
"Ya know Kat, she has a name," he coolly stated while rolling his eyes at me.
"That may be true but I prefer to call her a term that best describes what she is," I jokingly said and winked at him.
I couldn't stand that girl. As any other teenage girl with a crush on a taken guy would say: she's not right for him. But I really do mean it...She's as crazy as they come.
Aaron spoke again, interrupting my bitter thoughts. "Lana," he stressed the word in a way to mean that it was about time I got her name right, "is being dramatic as always."
"Surprise, surprise." I didn't give him a chance to answer by turning up "The Depths" by Of Mice & Men. We both loved metal and alternative music. It was the only thing that got me through the day.
"I've been put down for way too long, 'You'll never be good enough.' All they told me was, 'Just give up. You'll never be good enough', never good enough."
"Yoohoo Katerina...Stop daydreaming, we've arrived at the hellhole."
"Huh? Oh, sorry. Ew, I hate this place."
"Who doesn't? I'll see you in second hour, okay?"
"Alright bye Airhead!"
"Bye KittyKat," he said and smiled at me, then walked away to catch up with Leech and his other friends.
