Today is the day. My first day on my new school.
I don't think I've ever been so nervous.
I get out my bed and take a long shower.
When I'm finished, I walk to my walk-in closet and put on some music. I just can't live without music, it's my new drugs.
I try to find the perfect outfit for my first day of school.
I don't know what to wear so I decide to wear my high-waisted jeans, some vans and a RollingStones shirt.
After that, I blowdry my long hair and curl it a little, but not too much. It has to look natural. Gosh, why did I let my hair grow that long, it takes hours to make it look nice.
I put on a little foundation and consealer to hide the bags under my eyes and the pimples ofcourse.
I curl my lashes and make them black with my mascara.
When I look in the mirror, I'm surprised.
I actually look good today. Never in a million years I thought I would say that.
I smile at myself and walk downstairs to make myself breakfast.
As I walk into my new school, I see the tall guy I met in the park yesterday.
What was his name again? Right, Luke.
He looks really cute today in his skinny jeans and his plain white shirt. And ofcourse his Vans.
It's like he knows I'm staring at him because suddenly he turns around.
''Hey new girl, are you ready for your first day?'' He says with a smile that shows his dimples.
''Hi Luke! Yeah I guess.. I'm kinda nervous though..''
I can feel my face turning red again.
''You will be allright, don't worry!''
The bell rings and I panicked. Where am I going?
I swear Luke can read my mind because he grabs my arm and says; ''You're in the same class as me so would you like to walk with me to it?''
''Are you asking me out on a date, Luke?'' I joke.
He laughs and I can feel the butterflies in my stomach. Am I falling in love?
We walk towards the classroom and when I come in, all heads turn to me.
I don't know what to do so I just smile and follow Luke.
''Guys, this is Sophie. She's the new girl so be nice to her,'' Luke says. He is the sweetest.
The class starts and everything goes well.
Sometimes I see people whispering and looking at me but I just ignore it. I guess that's what happens when you're the new girl.
When the class ends, Luke comes to me and tells me he'll bring me to my next class.
Is he always this sweet or only to me?
What am I thinking, why would he just be nice to me.
I'm not special or beautiful or something, I'm just a normal and awkward girl.
Lunch is now and I try to find a place where I can just sit and be alone. I want to sit with Luke but I don't think he would like that, would he?
I walk outside and sit on the grass, next to a tree.
The weather is beautiful and I can hear the birds singing. It makes me happy. While watching everyone running to eachother and hugging, I see Luke. I can see him looking at me and he smiles. I smile back. His smile makes my heart melt.
Suddenly, a girl jumps on his back and he turns around. They hug and then she kisses him. Wait, what? He has a girlfriend? Well ofcourse he has dummy, he is the most perfect guy ever. How can he not have a girlfriend?
I look down and eat my food as fast as I can.
I walk to my next class and try not to think about what just happened.
The rest of the day isn't really special and I'm glad when my last class is over. I walk to the bus but instead of going home, I decide to do some shopping to make myself feel good.
As I walk in and out the stores, I see a musicstore.
I want to take a look inside so that's exactly what I'm going to do. When I walk inside, I don't know where to look. Instruments are everywhere, from piano's to bassguitars. I grab one of the guitars and play a bit of my own songs.
''Nice song, I don't think I've ever heard that before,'' a male voice says. I look up and see a guy smiling at me. His skin is tinted and his hair is dark. His beautiful dark eyes are twinkling and his smile is bright.
''Thanks, I'm Sophie,'' I introduce myself.
''Hi Sophie, my name is Calum. Did you write that song yourself? Because it's really good!''
I can't help but blush.
''Nice to meet you Calum, yes it's my own song. I'm not that good, really,'' I say.
He chuckles and takes a seat next to me.
''I think you are good! You know, I have a band and we write our own stuff also. You should come see us one day.'' He has his own band? That is so sexy.
''I would love to! Here, I'll give you my number so you can call me when you and your band have a show.'' I write down my number and he takes it.
Wow, I can't believe I just did that. I guess I'm not as shy and awkward as I thought I was.
''Thank you Sophie, I promise I'll give you a call. Nice shirt by the way,'' he says pointing at my RollingStones shirt. He's into the same bands as me!
''Thanks! I've got to go now. It was really nice to meet you Calum. I look forward to your show!''
We say goodbye and he gives me a hug.
Did I really just hug a guy? Not just a guy, a really cute one. Hmmm I think I might get used to that.
I take the bus home and unlock my door once I get there. I walk straight to my kitchen and make myself some food. This first day of school turned out great. Well, except the Luke part ofcourse but hey, I found myself a new friend. That's something.
