Candice's POV

Sam and I arrived at the beach.

"Let's go and get a spot!" Sam said,flipping her hair,I nodded. We walked,looking for a spot that had the right amount of shade. Then I saw the perfect spot.

"Sam! Over here!" I said to her,pointing to the spot,lightly pulling on her shirt. Sam nodded as she followed me. We laid our beach towels out,I had a yellow one with pink flowers,Sam's was pink with lime green stripes. I stood on my towel,slipping my shoes off,I slipped on my shirt,along with my shorts. I put my hair up in a ponytail,pulling the hair tie tight. I looked over at Sam,she wore a white two piece with pink, green, and yellow polka dots. My swim suit was a plain black two piece. Sam and I ran towards the ocean,once we got there we splashed around. Soon,we went back to our spot,I got my phone out of my bag,I put my headphones on. Basket case by Green Day played.

'Do you have the time,

To listen to me whine,

About nothing and everything all at once.

I am on of those, melodramatic fools,

Neurotic to the bone No doubt about it...'

I felt a finger poking me,I slid my headphones down to my neck,I looked at Sam.

"Yeah?" I said. Sam smiled,she put on her shirt and her shorts.

"We should go...and eat?" Sam said,I nodded,pulling my shirt on my semi dry body,I slipped on my shorts and shoes and we packed our stuff.


Sam and I paid for pizza and went to our table,I grabbed a slice. I watched Sam eat her's.Her cheese moved around in her mouth like with goo. I looked down at my pizza and took a bite.

"Cheesy..." I said,my mouth full. Sam laughed at me,she nodded.


We arrived home,we both got out the car. Sam stepped onto the porch,her hand on the doorknob.

"Candice?" I heard her say behind me. I turned around,I waved my hand at her.

"I'll be in in just a minute" Sam gave me a thumbs up,she opened the door,closing it behind her. I walked onto the porch,sitting on a chair. I looked at the other houses around me.

"Hey,are you new?" I heard. My head snapped up,I looked across the street. A boy with messy black hair and green eyes,was standing in front of his house. I stood up,I walked down the three steps,so I could hear him clearer.

"Yeah..." I said with a nod. He gave me a cute smile,I smiled back.

"My name is Matthew..." He said. I smiled again nodding.

"I'm Candice..." I said.

"So...where'd you come from?" Matthew asked me.

(A/N I feel like no one writes about a girl from Alabama...)

"Alabama..." I said,putting my hands behind my back. Matthew smiled,I couldn't help but to smile back.

"Hey you go to Lincoln High?" Matthew asked me. Well,that is the school that mom told me that Sam and I were going to...

"Yeah..." I said. Matthew turned his head towards his house,a woman has called his name.

"Well,see you Monday...Candice" Matthew said, he turned around and ran inside his house,he closed his door,it made a loud BAM noise. I smiled to myself,going into my house.

'I love this place' I thought to myself smiling,closing the door behind me.


I was lying in my bed,staring at the ceiling,thinking about how good friends Matthew and I can become. I stood up,deciding to get in the shower. I ran to one of my boxes,grabbing pink,silky pajama pants,and it's matching tank top, I grabbed underwear and a towel. I stepped into the bathroom,it was surprisingly warm in there. I turned on the shower,I felt the water,it was a little hotter than warm. I took off my clothes and stepped in. I let the hot water hit my body as I covered myself in soap. I washed my hair and turned off the water,the hot water steamed up the room. Dried off with my towel.after that I pit on my under wear. I slipped on my shirt,and put on my pajama pants. I stood in front of the mirror,I couldn't see myself clearly. I wiped the mirror,it revealed my face. I sighed at the sight of my face,I put my hair in a messy bun and brushed my teeth. I turned off the light and left the bathroom. I looked beside me,Sam's bedroom door. I lightly knocked on it,Sam opened her door a little.

"Come in..." Sam said.I opened her door a little more and I closed it.

"Hey... Ready for school tomorrow??" I asked. I have to admit,I was a little excited. Sam laughed at my enthusiasm.

"Not really...but at the same time I am...know what I mean?"

'No' "Yeah! I totally get it!" I told her,giving a small smile. Sam also smiled,she sat on her bed and picked up a book. That was my time to leave.

"Okay good night..." I said. Sam turned a page,looked up,smiled and kept reading.
