I stared at myself in the mirror, taking in every aspect of my body. I noticed how my long brown hair was slightly curled at the ends, and my boring brown eyes had faint specks of gold and green. Then I noticed the fat. Most people say that I'm skinny, but I disagreed. I'd tried exercising and dieting but nothing worked for me. I just stayed the same.
I had always been average. Brown hair. Brown eyes. Average sized. Nothing special! The only thing going for me was my grades... I got all A's.
"Adalia get down here right now or you're going to be late for your first day of school!"
"Ugh calm down mom I'm coming."
I lived with my mom dad brother and sister. My sister was in fifth grade and my brother was a senior. I was a junior. Well actually I was going to be a junior in about an hour.. Today was the first day of junior year.
I was actually really excited. I couldn't wait for another year of being single, as always.
I had a hard break up a couple years back, so after all of that I decided that I wouldn't fall in love until I was out of high school.
I quickly grabbed a sharpie and drew a red heart in my wrist, then I crossed it out with a black x. This was my best friend Ashley and my symbol. We refused to fall in love. This was just a way of making it more fun for us.
I threw on a skirt, tights, and a blouse. I was known for wearing skirts to school. They're way more comfortable then skinny jeans that are designed so that you can't move your legs. Then I tried to figure out what to do with my mess of hair. I decided to just leave it down.
I ran down the stairs, grabbing my bag as I went. I threw on my shoes and ran out the door to where my mom was waiting in the car. I hopped in the car and shut the door.
"You take so long...."
"Shut up Katie." My sister was in the backseat waiting for me when I got in the car. I put in my headphones and started zoning out. I couldn't wait to get to school!
My mom pulled into the school parking lot and I hopped out.
"Adalia!!!!! Over here!!!! Look!!" I looked over and saw my best friend Ashley waving at me. She was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt and had her long brown hair in a low ponytail.
Next to her was my other best friend Alannah. She was wearing yoga pants and a really cute top with flowers and a hint of glitter. I was so happy to see them. I ran up to them.
"OMG I feel like I haven't seen you guys in forever," I said while hugging them.
"IKR it's been like a total of three days!" Alannah replied with a grin. We always hung out over the summer as a group.
Suddenly Ashley started flipping out.
"THERE ARE NEW KIDS AND THEY HAVE ACCENTS AND THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!"
"Uh Ashley? We sworn off dating, remember?" My friend could be very stupid at times, but it was funny.
She looked at me and said,
"Ya about that... I kinda may sort of love the new kids...."
Of course she did. Ashley was a sucker for guys with accents. Suddenly Alannah started whacking my arm...
"Both of you shut up!!! They're coming!!!!!"
Five boys walked past us. They were kind of handsome I guess. Ugh, why did they have to be handsome. That was going to make it so hard for me to not fall in love. This was going to be a long year....
