A shiver ran up my spine, freezing my body stiff. Pain filled screams echoed to every corner of my room. Barricading of every wall until I am filled with torment.
I can't dare to imagine what is making that noise. It can't be real Jen get a grip, its just your imagination. But with every raggid breath and and every earsplitting cry. It seems more real. Yet another night were the monster from below envelopes the darkness.

The soft sun leeks throug my slightly open window. The cool breeze dances wth the dust. The sound of my alarm drifts to my ear, making me lust for sleep.
I sigh and drag my legs out of bed. I pad softly through to the bathroom. I have a quick cold shower and shove on my regular top and jeans. I scrape back my blond hair and sigh. My eyes are surrounded by dark circles making them look hollow and lifeless.
"Jen!" Screams mum "Max is here!"
Honestly that boy! Always wanting to be early, they never learn.
I jog down the stairs and quickly kiss my mum goodbye.
"Remember to do something that will make you..."
"Smile! Yes mum bye."
I turn and make an exasperated look at Max who is already half way down the garden path already.
"Slow down will you" I say as I struggle with the bag on my back.
He turns and smirks at me, not dropping pace.
"Excersise never killed nobody!"
His head bobbing to some R and B rap as he speedwalks down the road. Just another ordinary day. Great.

Max's concerned hazel eyed gaze flicked over my face. Max was cute but not my thing, we have been friends for ever so it's just not right. The drone of Mrs Slaven's voice drifted through the classroom. Absaloutaly no one listening to her talk on nureons. I tell Max everything. Well almost. I havn't told hime about the dreams. He would probably think i was crazy! I should tell someone, but i just can't bring myself to do it.
The bell shocks all the half asleep students to life as they race out the room. Max stands up steadily, his muscles flexing. Yeah he definitely is cute.
"Jen, hey are you okay?" He asked. "You look like you've died and then only come half alive again!" His smile not quite reaching his eyes.
"Yeah im fine. Look at you all caring" I teased.
He blushed such a sweet colour of pink, mumbled goodbye and stalked down the corridoor. Oh Max don't you go liking someone like me it will only bring you down.
