Hi! I am Scarlett Hancock. I live in Miami, Florida with my Mom. You may be thinking, Scarlett? Where is your father? That's the thing... He died a year ago in a car accident. Don't worry though, I'm over it... At least I think. I am an only child. I have dark brown hair that goes down to my waist. I have light blue eyes, some people say they were the color of the sky. Now though, they are dull. I am 5'6 and a half. My best friend is Courtney. She is my go to gal if I need a shoulder to cry on. Or just need a laugh! She has blonde wavy hair and bright green eyes. I have known her since 7th grade. Oh yah! I'm 16 years old.
I have this MAJOR crush on this band. 5 Seconds Of Summer. Have you heard of them? Well my favorite in the band is Ashton... Something about his kind smile and those eyes just get me. Don't even ask me about his laugh. Well enough with the boring things... Lets get on with the story!
(this was before the reading so you could get to know Scarlett!)
I furiously slammed my hand on top of the alarm clock. I looked up from my oh so comfy bed.
Oh god.... It's Monday. Does anyone have something I can kill myself with? No? Ok bye. I sluggishly got out of my bed automatically regretting it. When did it get so cold?! I tiptoed to the shower making sure I didn't wake my mom up. I then turned it on waiting for the water to turn warm. Then I pulled out my iPhone logging into twitter.
@5SOS: Can't wait to finally get to Florida! Miami here we come!
I quickly responded:
@errmhemmings: @5SOS You should go to the beach! Maybe one of you would finally get a tan!
(not to be offensive, in a funny way) :)
I then shut my phone off knowing they wouldn't answer. When the water finally got warm I stepped in and started to wash up. Wait... Did they just say MIAMI? OMG! They are in the same city as me! I can't breathe!!
I wish I could get tickets... But I just can't afford it right now... (Boo): )
I washed some shampoo and conditioner out of my hair and wrapped a towel around me. I combed through my hair blow drying it till it was dry and looked semi good. Hmm what to wear. I looked in my closet and decided on a simple outfit. Denim black shorts with a tank top that had the 5SOS logo on it. Derping since 2011 :). Then I chose some black vans and I put my hair up in a loose bun. I don't really care what I look like in school. I shoved my phone in my pocket and now I'm ready for school!
I walked downstairs and looked on the clock on the stove.
I still have 40 minutes till school starts... All of a sudden my phone started buzzing in my back pocket. I took it out thinking it was my best friend Courtney spamming me with texts. I looked on the screen and it had all these twitter notifications. Deh frick? I quickly logged onto twitter and found out what all the commotion was.
@5SOS: @errmhemmings Well excuse me but every time I try to drag one of these boys out into they sun they start freaking out and acting as if they're dying. ~Ash:)
@5SOS is now following you.
WHA WHAT WAIT WHAT. I CAN'T COMPREHEND WHAT IS GOING ON. Then I died. Stories over guys sorry. No not really though. I quickly got on IMessege and texted Courtney. Even though she was probably asleep.
Me: COURTNEY WAKE YOUR ARSE UP!
Me: COURTNEY I WILL TELL EVERYONE YOUR SECRET OBSESSION WITH HARRY STYLES!!
Me: I give up there is no point. Bye
Courtsneeze: What do you want Scarlett? I still have 2 more minutes of sleep...
Me: CHECK MY TWITTER!!
-5 Minutes Later-
Courtsneeze: OMG SCARLETT!! AHHH THEY NOTICED YOU!! OMG YOU HAVE TO DM THEM FOR ME PLEASE!!
Me: Fine... Get ready for school!!
Courtsneeze: ok but I have some exciting news at school! Ahh I can't believe it!! OMG!!
I spent the next 20 minutes eating all the marshmallows out of my Lucky Charms. Such a beautiful cereal. Finally I jumped in my car to get to school. I still can't believe it....
I skipped to my locker getting weird looks from people as I passed them. I don't care though, no one could ruin how I feel. I got my things for home room and started walking to Courtney's locker. I was soon engulfed in a huge hug. I looked at the person giving me the hug and smiled.
"I still can't believe they noticed you!" Said Courtney as she let me go and started to mess with her locker combination.
"I know right! I am still unstable!" I squealed as Courtney finally got her locker open. "So would you do me the honer and tell me what the big news is?" I asked her with big puppy eyes.
She reached in her bag and pulled out two things I never thought I would see in my life.
FIVE SECONDS OF SUMMER!
I would have fainted, right there. But then it would of been humiliating... So I just kept it inside.
"You... Did... Not..." I chocked out not being able to talk. I looked up to find her grinning ear to ear. She nodded and that's when I lost it. I took one of the tickets and started jumping up and down... In the middle of a busy hallway.
"When is it?? Where is it?? What am I going to wear?" All these questions came pouring out of my mouth like a waterfall.
"It's tonight at 8!! In Miami of course and we need to go shopping after school!!" She squealed then hugged me for the second time today.
Me and Courtney, with our heads up high, and our smiles the brightest they have ever been, walked to home room. Or skipped and ran over a few people. But we didn't care. Nothing could ruin the moment.
