Well I guess I should introduce myself. Hi! My name is Kara and I'm a geek (I guess is the nicest way to put it) in High School. I'm in my third year of High School or also known as grade 11. I guess I should explain how I became a geek. Well in elementary school I was a social butterfly I guess you could say. I was friends with everyone and I just liked to talk. But as soon as I hit high school my two best friends from elementary school left me and went and made new friends. And for some reason I couldn't make any friends so I became a geek. I blended in with the walls and no one ever noticed me. I sat in the back corner of the cafeteria or I went in the library and sat at a table in the corner and just sat there alone reading. But enough about me lets get to the story!
"Good Morning. The weather today looks fairly nice-" I then quickly slapped the top of my alarm clock shutting up the weather man. Today was my first day of grade 11. I wasn't excited or upset like most people I just treated it as a normal day. Since I don't have any friends I really have nothing to do with my time besides reading.
I slowly got out of bed and walked into the bathroom. I looked in the mirror and saw that my light brown hair looked like a jungle on top of my head. I quickly stepped in the shower and let the warmth of the shower wake me up.
Once I finished in the shower I wrapped myself in a towel and used the other towel to dry of the mirror. I grabbed my brush and ran it through my hair and got out all the tangles. I quickly used the blow dryer on my hair and it started to form little ringlets at the bottom like my hair usually does. And since I don't use make up I walked out of the bathroom and walked to my room. I walked into my closet and found a pair of black skinny jeans, a gray shirt that says You Only Live Once in black writing and the O in Only was a heart with black studs, then I wore my black hoodie. I guess you could say my favourite colour was black.
Once I changed and my light brown ringlets were uncaught from my sweater I grabbed my nerd glasses and my backpack that was full of the stuff I needed for school and my books and I walked down my stairs and walked into the kitchen. Where my mom was sitting at the table we had and I quickly grabbed and apple and was about to walk out when my mom started talking.
"Have a nice day at school sweety." She said happily.
"Thanks mom I will." I said starting to walk away again but she started to talk again.
"Kara please try and make some friends this year." She said.
"Mom I've tried that for the last year. I'm telling you this year isn't going to be any different. I'll try if it makes you happy but no one wants to be my friend." I said.
"Well just try." She said reassuringly.
"Ok I will." I said walking to the door slipping on my black and gray Vans (I really need to find more colours then black and gray). I walked out the door and breathed in the fresh air. I walked down the street and since the school was only two blocks away from my house I didn't have a long walk. Usually on these walks I just thought about how different my life is now then when I was in elementary school. But not today I wasn't going to let that bother me any more. I had spent the last two years being upset about but not any more. So walking to school I was thinking of how excited I was to be taking Grade 12 math this year. I've just been finding math to easy so I decided to do Grade 12 instead and see how it goes.
Once I saw the school I saw all the groups. Though the only one that was really any interest to me was the schools bad boys that consist of Luke Hemmings, Ashton Irwin and my two ex best friends from elementary school Michael Clifford and Calum Hood. They changed so much since I was friends with them in elementary school. Now they had tattoo's everywhere and they stole from corner stores. I never really saw it coming but I guess I should have understood that even though we were friends in elementary school doesn't mean we'll stay friends in high school.
I walked past them at the front doors and like usual we ignored each other. As soon as I walked in I quickly went and found my locker. I walked down the halls till I saw my locker number. "1147." This was my locker since grade 9 and I've grown to like this locker. I put nine of my ten of my books in and then put the stuff I had for school that I knew I didn't need today in I put in. I then put my lock on and started to walk down the halls with my book across my chest with my arms holding it. I walked to the science room with my backpack still on when someone bumped into me. I fell to the ground and saw that Luke Hemmings had bumped into me. Great just great.
"Watch where you're going next time." I whispered so only I could hear what I said.
"What did you say?" He asked in a threatening like tone of voice.
"Nothing just forget I said anything." I said crouching down since my glasses fell off and everything goes fuzzy. I can see shapes but that's all I can see. I was crouching down on the ground feeling around for my glasses when I felt someone hand me my glasses. And since I couldn't see their face I had no idea who it was. I put my glasses on and came face to face with Luke. I almost got lost in his blue eyes but I remembered that a bad boy like him would never fall in love with a geek like me. So I quickly started to put my stuff back in my backpack and grabbed my book and stood up. I tried to walk away be he grabbed my arm.
"Hey are you ok?" He asked.
"And you care because?" I said turning around to face him.
"Well you fell down and hit the ground pretty hard and you seem really sad." He said.
"I'm fine." I said quickly.
"My names-" He started but I interrupted him.
"Luke I know everyone knows you and your friends names." I said. Luke was about to speak again but I heard someone call for him.
"Oh sorry I have to go. We should talk later." He said running down the hall.
"Ya sure lets talk later." I mumbled to myself. I then saw what time it was and started to run down the hall. I was going to be late for science and I've never been late for any of my classes. I ran until I saw the door that said "124 Science" I quickly walked in and saw everyone was there already. And as soon as I walked in the bell rang and Mr. Downy looked at me. But technically I wasn't late.
"Kara you're I see you're still trying not to break your never being late streak. You close today but you got lucky now please take your seat." He said. Then only seat left was at the back and next to Ashton. Why do I keep running into them today. Once I took my seat Mr. Downy continued talking. "As I was saying the people you are sitting next to are your lad partners for this semester." He said. I immediately sighed. The only thing worse then running into one of these guys in the hall is being their partner in something because they never do any of the work. Though Ashton must love that I'm his partner because he knows I'm one of the smartest kids in school.
Once class ended I walked back to my locker and opened it and saw my schedule taped to my locker door and I saw that my next class was Grade 12 math. I immediately forgot about Ashton being my partner for science and became happy. I was so excited. I was just about to grab my Math book that I grabbed in the morning at the office when my locker door slammed shut. I looked up and saw Luke. I guess he really wanted to finish this conversation I don't know why though.
"So since you already know who I am it's only fair you tell me who you are." He said.
"I would love to but I'm not like the other girls who swoon over you because you're a bad boy and your hot. So if you wouldn't mind I have classes unlike you who skip." I said in a mocking voice opening my locker and grabbing my math textbook and locking it and pushing past him. Once again he grabbed my arm.
"Wait you think I'm hot?" He said raising an eyebrow at me.
"No I don't but like I said I have classes so if you wouldn't mind." I said shaking my arm from his grip and walking down the hall to my class. The great thing about taking Grade 12 math is it's right down the hall from my locker.
I walked into class and like usual I was the first one there. So I took a seat in the back. Even though I'm a geek I really don't like sitting in the front. Once I took my seat I grabbed my book and started to read. Once everyone had come in and the bell rang I put my book away and waited for class to start.
"Hello class I'm Mrs. Smiths. I will be your math teacher this year." Once she introduced herself we started with math right away. I was so excited.
Once math class had finished I had lunch. So I walked into the cafeteria and ordered my usual: salad, some sort of fruit and a bottle of water. I paid the lady at the end of the line and I was also one of the first people in line so I took my usual lunch table spot which was the lunch table all the way at the back in the corner. People sometimes sit here but they sit at the front of the table but I sit the back so I'm always by myself.
I was sitting eating my salad and reading my book when someone came and sat down beside me. And usually people do but usually they do to prank me but this time I looked out the corner of my eye and everyone was looking at me and the person sitting beside me. I looked up from my book and saw Luke. Why wont this guy leave me alone.
"What are you doing here?" I whispered to him.
"I came here to find out who you are." He whispered back.
"Why do you even care?" I whispered again.
"Because you seem like a nice person and I've never really noticed you." He whispered back again.
"Luke I was your partner in science in grade 9 and I sat beside you in math class in grade 10." I said.
"You did?" He asked. I saw I had finished my salad so I grabbed my apple and my bottle of water and put my book in my backpack.
"Just follow me." I whispered. Getting up from my spot I swung my backpack over my shoulder and grabbed my lunch tray and putting my salad container in the recycling and my lunch tray on top. I looked over and everyone was still staring at us. Luke was following behind me and once we left the cafeteria everyone went back to what they were doing.
I started walking and I was trying to think of where to go and then I remembered the library. So I walked into the library and Luke looked confused.
"Where are we?" He said loudly. Then everyone in the library looked over at us.
"Shhh. Sorry he doesn't know the rules of the library." I whispered to everyone. "Luke we have to be quiet we're in the library people are trying to read." I said walking to my little reading corner in the library. "Again why do you want to know who I am?" I whispered once we entered my corner. Well technically it was everyone's but I was the only one who knew about it and I liked it like that. It had all my favourite books in here and it had a couch to read on so it was pretty cozy.
"Because I've heard Michael and Calum talk about this girl they were friends with in elementary school. And they told me that she had long light brown hair with ringlets and she wore nerd glasses and she always had a book with her and you seem to fit the description perfectly." He said.
"Well good job I'm that friend of Michael and Calum from elementary school. Is that all because I have to go to gym." I said sadly. I really hate gym.
"No I still don't know your name." He said.
"Well if you must know my name is Kara. Are we done here?" I asked.
"No I still have a lot of questions to ask you about what Michael and Calum were like in elementary school and about you and how you turned into this geek." He said.
"Well if you want to talk about it. Meet me outside the front of the school behind the tree. And then we can talk at the coffee shop I work at." I said and he nodded. And then we left the library.
