2. Chapter 2
It took me an hour and many songs to walk to the school that was only fifteen minuets away from my house. I kept on turning back and walking half way home, and then turning back to school again. They do say two steps froward one step back but I think I took the saying a little too literally. But I did it. Even if it took me a whole hour I actually got to school.

I pushed my dull blonde hair behind my ears, trying to look normal. He approached and took a seat next to me. "Hey Catrina, long time no see, how are you?"
