It was a windy rainy day on May 15, 2014. I was on my way to school. As I looked out my window I could see the lightening strike the ground, as the thunder roared like a tiger. I finally got to my school, I ran into the building so I wouldn’t get wet.
My school wasn't big at all. I went to Monahans High School. MHS was an okay school; I mean I wish it was just a little bigger. The hallways get clustered up, but that's mostly because people stop in the middle of the hall or people just walk to slow. My first period, was one of the first class rooms, so I didn’t have to walk far.
I got into my first period class, it was a science class. I walked to my desk which was the second to desk on the first column. I got to my desk and took off my MSH black sweater, and fixed my "geek “gray shirt. I sat down and tucked in my laces to my black and yellow DC shows. I waited for the bell to ring, so class to start. The bell finally rung and everyone went to their seat. I talked to my friend Reba, who sent in front of me while we waited for our teacher to come in to class. Finally my teacher came in and she started talking about DNA, I dosed off and started to dream.
"Hey, Daniela." Devan said. "Hi," I said back, we talked as we walked down this pink road. "Hey where are we going?" I finally said. "I’m not sure I thought you knew?" He replied. "No, vie never been her in my life. It looks pretty weird though. Pink road and all, “I said.”Yeah, it is weird. Hey, look ahead its getting really dark. I don't think we should go over there." Devan said as he stopped walking. “Don’t be a baby about it, I need to get home and it looks as if this is the only way." I said as I continued to walk. “Okay, I guess," he said as he followed behind.
It started to get windy and we saw thunder ahead, but we continued to walk. As we started walking we road began to get much narrow as we went down the street. Finally the road started to get wider, but it also the pinks started fading away to a gray color. We didn’t think much of it. Then all of a sudden we hear a loud notice. Lightening stuck the road before us and the road started to cave in. We tried to run in the other direction, "oh my god, we are doomed!" I said as we ran. "Don’t say that!" Devan said. The road caught up to me and I slipped but cough myself on the edge, “HELP ME!" I screamed. Devan grabbed my hand, but I couldn't hold on any longer.
I fell into the black bottom less pit, I screamed as I fell to my death. I finally woke up from my dream with a loud scream. The whole class looked at me as if I had just murdered a famous actor or something. "Are you okay Daniela?" my teacher asked. "Yeah, I’m fine; just saw a really big bug.” I said, she didn’t ask me anything else. I sat at my desk wondering why I had a dream so horrible. It was only a dream, it didn’t mean anything, and I told myself as I walked to my locker, but I knew that was a lie.
Finally school had ended and I walked back home. The day had brightened up a bit, it was no longer raining but there was a nice breeze and the clouds were still gray. As I walked I stopped at the park not too far from my house. I sat on a bench and looked up at the sky. I suddenly heard a noise behind me; I turned to look there was no one. I got the chills all over, I felt as if someone was watching me.
I got up from the bench and I started walking away, till I remembered I left my jacket on the bench; I turned around and got it. As soon as I turn back I see this guy. He was tall, thin, had black hair. He walked towards me, as I watched him come closer to me; I continued to check him out. His t-shirt was an old warn out band t-shirt, he had faded blue skinny jeans with black DC shoes. He finally reached me,
"Hey," he said as he smiled. I looked at him, he had blue gray eyes and freckles, " Um, Hi,' I said trying not to stare into his eyes.”I know you don’t know me, I just moved to town. I live in the house across from you. I saw you leave this morning. I'm not trying to be stalker if that's what you think. “He said as he smiled at me laughing a little.”Oh, no I didn’t think that," I said as I giggled a little. “I didn’t know I had new neighbors, I really don’t leave my house nor go outside. I’m Daniela by the way. “I said, “Nice to meet you Daniela, my name is Ryan.” He said with a small smile. "Are you walking home?” I asked him as I fixed my bag. "Yes I am, do you mind if I walk with you?" He asked. "Not at all had I told him, as I began to walk towards my house.
We talked to about ourselves as we walked, "well hmm I'm 18, I hate school," he said with a small laugh. "I like heavy metal and punk music, my favorite color is black. I like to skateboard. I'm an only child. I think that's about it, your turn."
I looked at him and smiled, “okay, lets see where do I star. Umm, I’m 15, born on 9-11. I know bad day, “I said before he could say anything. “I like to read, write, sing, text, eat, sleep, and I kind of like school. I’m a big book work; I have school smart, just not street smarts. I love penguins; favorite colors are black and blue. I also like heavy metal and punk music. I have a little brother and that’s about it” I said as we walked in to the school. “I repaid. By this time I had already reached my house.
“That’s cool, well, it was nice meeting you," Ryan said. "It was nice meeting you to,” I said with a light smile. "Hey, if it’s not too soon, can I have your number?" He asked trying not to blush. "Sure," I said as I took out my phone and gave it him, so he cans text himself. "Thanks," He said with a smile on his face as he handed me my phone back. I smiled and waved bye to him as I turned around went into my gate.
I walked in to my house and threw my bag into my room as I headed for the kitchen. As I looked in the fridge, nothing caught my eye as always. I headed back to my room and laid on my bed. By this time Ryan had already texted me.
Me: Hey sweet thang
Ryan Sweet thang
Me: It’s something I call everyone
Ryan: Oh, anyways what are you doing?
Me: Nothing just here in bed texting you.
Ryan that sounds cool
Me: yeah, I guess you can say that. So, what made you talk to me at the park?
Ryan: Oh, nothing really, I had seen you this morning and I thought you were pretty. So, when I noticed you walking me though I’d take my chance.
Me: Oh, awe (:
Ryan: ha, yeah
Me: What grade you in?
Ryan: I’m a senior, you
Me: Oh that’s cool; I’m a little fishy cx
Ryan: Awe, you're all small XD
Me: Shh XD
Ryan: So do you walk home after school every day?
Me: Yes x.x
Ryan: Cool, you mind if I walk with you?
Me: not at all :)
Ryan: yay ha-ha XD
As the day went on Ryan and me texted all that day. The next day came and Ryan met me in front of the school. I showed him where his classes were. We ended up having three classes together, (art health, and p.e.).
When it came to lunch, Ryan and I walked over to sonic. Since we went to a small school, we had off-campuses lunch, that and art was the only fun thing about school, if you ask me. We got our food and head to the park. We had an hour lunch, so we sat there and talked. As soon as we finished eating we had 10 minutes to walk back to school
As we walked back to school, we started talking, “so where are you from?” I asked him as we walked. "I’m from El Paso, have you always lived here in Monahans.” He asked, No, I’m from Del Rio. I moved here in August." I replied "That nice, I don’t like it here so far. I’m not used to it being so small.” He said sounding like he was irritated by the fact that Monahans was so tiny. "Me either, where I’m from it not big like El Paso, but is sure is bigger than here." I said.” Why did you move here?" He asked me. "My dad got work here and my mom was tired of us not being a 'family' so we came here sadly." I replied. “You don’t like it here?" He asked. “I do it's just you get tired of it. I don’t really ever do any but stay at home that gets so tiring, I wish there was more to do here in this Oh, we that’s true. I'm going to miss my star bucks,” he said with a laugh as we walked to our art class.
He took the seat next to the left of me, as I introduced him to my friends who sat on the other side. As we worked on our boot project we talked and laughed. Art went by pretty fast, u gated that I. art was one of my favorite class.
We put up our stuff and walked to the front of the class to the door. W e did thus every day, the last five minutes of class we put up our stuff and wait by the door for the bell to ring. If you ask me I think those are the longest five minutes of my life.
After waiting for what seemed a century the bell finally rung and we left for our 7th period class. Ryan and u walked to our class, they were right next to each other. I kind of thought it was funny that most of our classed were close by. My next class was English; I sat with my friend Taylor.
“So, who’s that new kid you’ve been hanging out with all day?” she said with a wink and a giggle. “He’s my neighbor, “I said laughing. “Well, he’s cute. He’s so into you!” She said with excitement.” I looked at her as id she was talking in another language. ." I don’t think so, but you can think what you can," I said smiling. “But there is one weird thing about him." I said as I got my notebook out of my bag. “What is it?" Taylor asked. “Well that way I met him. I was at the park and I hadn’t even seen him then all of the sudden he had appeared out of nowhere. He said he had seen me that morning and had seen me walking home. Well, to me that’s a but stalker, at least I think. ‘I said with a little laugh. Taylor looked at me and laughed, Okay, yeah a little bit of a stalker, but hey at least he’s cute and not all old.” I looked at her and laughed.
The bell rung and our teacher started giving some speech about Romeo and Juliet. As usual I didn’t pay attention. I took out my notebook and began to draw. I started to draw a dream catcher; I drew a heart with butterfly’s wings on it. As I colored in the background different colors I heard a big bang. I looked up and I saw this big creature.
It had to be over 8 feet tall; I looked up and screamed as I got up, it jumped right in front of me, all I could see was his big long fangs and brown matted hair. He roared so big that it blew me away and I hit a wall. I tried to get up, but I was too weak. I fell back on the floor, he came towards me and I blacked out.
