3. Chapter Three-Meetings
>>>>> five days later <<<<<
Since my meeting with the boy I haven't taken a left but I have however gone right. I found a beautiful park with a little river. A short walk down the bank is a willow tree with long comforting branches. I've been there a few times to sit and read, text and once even paint. I feel as if I'm in my own little world. There's something different though, I can't get that boy out of my head. His helping hands and his cute smile. I shake my head and shoving a book into my bag once again walk towards the park. When I arrive there's ducks in the river quacking about something but they've done this many times before. I'm ducking under the branches before I realise there's someone crouched near the edge of the river. Someone with blonde hair and long thin fingers, he turns as he hears my entrance and steps back in surprise. I feel my cheeks heat a little and curse my easily activated blush nerves. I mumble "sorry" before quickly ducking out and walking away. I'm only a few steps away when his sweet voice calls out "wait" I turn to look and he simply says "I'm leaving anyway" before smiling and walking away. Blushing once again I duck under the wisps of leaves and lean against the trunk. My mind is whirring uncontrollably. I don't understand but I do know that I like this boy.

Riiiiiing, riiiiiing my new alarm clock screeches at me. Today's the day. The first day of school. I slip into the bathroom and turn on the water. Quickly showering I step out and dry my hair. Walking back into my room I push my hair off my face and into a half up half down do and plait a few strands. Smiling I apply simple makeup and reach for my new uniform. Black tapered trousers, a white shirt, blue and yellow tie and black blazer. Slipping on my shoes I grab my black and red backpack and check I have everything. Crunching my last mouthful of lucky charms I kiss Dad before leaving the house. I know exactly where I need to go for the bus, I've checked a map and even taken a stroll down to the bus stop to be sure. Taking a left I feel my phone vibrate in my pocket. Spencer: good luck Liv, Becky: Chin up chickie, Luci: Kick some ass, Jack: don't worry, you'll be fine. Have fun! Giggling I realise it's about 2am back home and they have another day before school starts up again. Smiling I quickly text them back and then I'm standing there. On the bus stop. I sit on the bench and glance at the people huddled together at the other end. 4 boys, they look about 14. 2 girls gossiping, I would say they're 15. Then I see him. The boy, standing in the corner with another boy. This ones shorter, with brown hair and a cheeky smile. I shove my phone back into my pocket and stare at the houses across the road. After about 10 minutes the bus turns up and I greatfully take a seat.
