1. Finding Carter
My life was good; I had parents who loved me and a brother (not much good I can say about him.) School wasn't always the best just like any school we had those "popular kids" or as i like to call the easy ones. Unless you were friends with them they wouldn't talk to you and you wouldn't talk to them, it was just easier that way. I got ready to go to school; it was Monday who really wants to go to school on Monday?
I straightened my hair the night before as usual; i never like my hair natural because it’s so frizzy that i end up looking like a lion. I finished getting ready then my mom drove me to school. When i got to school i painfully walked up all 4 flights of stairs to get to my locker, i get to my locker and put my lunch and gym clothes in and grab a piece of cinnamon gum, then i go to the third floor to meet up with my friends. I wouldn’t call my self popular but i had a good amount of friends, we met in the same spot every morning it was nice knowing that these girls would always be there for me. Like anyone i had my 4 closest friends Paige, Melanie, Carly and Lane. We did everything together; we were so close i thought we would be friends forever or at least till college. I had 2 periods then i had lunch i met Paige at her locker then she came with me to mine we have done this routine for the past 3 years of high school.
"P will you come with me to shoppers? I have to pick up a pre paid MasterCard my mom said i can’t use her credit card anymore."
"Sure but you have to come with me to Tim's"
"Great we can get my lunch then go"
It was about a 5 min walk to get to Shoppers i got what i needed then we went to times.
"Let me guess you are going to get an everything bagel with butter, a chocolate glazed doughnut and chocolate milk"
"Ha-ha A you know me so well"
We went back to school ate then suffered through the final 2 classes of the day, i did basically the same thing till Friday.
I got dressed and did the same routine till the end of school today i decided to go get a tea then off to Melanie’s house, Mel doesn't go to school with me but lives a good 20 min and i like walking so i got my tea then headed to Mel's house.
Hey loser when will you be home I’m on my way to your house right now?????????
Be there in 10 you have the house key right?
That’s how close Mel and I are I have a key to her house.
Ya i do i will see you soon.
I got to her house, got a drink then went to see her cat; he was really fat so i called him fatzo.
When she got home we headed to the park, we loved going on the swings and finding cute guys. I was determined to get a boyfriend I don’t know why I think I just liked the fact that someone would actually like me.
There weren’t a lot of cute guys there except for this one guy. Normally I’m really shy but I went to talk to him anyway I need to have courage and he’s cute enough that I will risk humility. My friend was close by if things took a turn for the worst we had a secret code planned just in case of extreme emergency.
“Hi” I said
He looked at me like I was crazy
Shit I thought to myself as I was about to give Mel the signal he replied
“Hey I’m Carter what’s your name”
“Arly, I noticed you practicing soccer by yourself and I was wondering if you wanted some company?”
“Sure, do you play?”
“Ya it’s the only sport I like”
We got really into playing that I forgot about Mel WHOOPS luckily she texted her boyfriend so I was safe. I beat him three times, he took my number then I was off back to tell Mel and Aidan everything.
