My eyelids pulled themselves apart as my alarm began to blast around my room. A groan escapes my lips before I smash the top of if to shut it off.
The house seemed quiet, the only sound I could hear was the shower in my brother's room. Most people prefer quietness and in some cases I do but not in this one. It means we've been left again.
Turns our Mr and Mrs.Lawrence are unable to have kids. They adopted Brett six years before they adopted me. this has been my home for three years now, it's crazy how time flies.
I wince as I push myself out of bed, the bruise on my side was throbbing. How did I get this you might be wondering? Well I guess my brokenness caused me to fall for someone who would break me even further...
I kept my head down as I made my way out of the office of my new school. Being a freshman is hard enough without moving to a new school half way through the year.
Whispers shot through the halls like wild fire and I don't think there's one eye that wasn't looking at me right now. I'm not the sort of girl who likes to be 'invisible' I just don't like too much attention and this was crossing the line.
I picked up my walking pace, desperate to get to my locker so I could turn away from everyone. As I reached it I fiddled with the combination to open it, that was easy enough, however cramming my books in was a different story all together. After about five minutes of intense pressure I managed to fit them all in, I guess I missed a lot more school than I thought if I have this much work to catch up on.
The bell silenced the chatter that weaved throughout the halls however the stampede began just as it stopped ringing. I was instantly swiped up by the crowd. Panic flooded through me, I had no idea where I was going. I suddenly felt a hand grab my wrist and pull me from the middle of the mob.
"You looked a bit dazzled in there." a laugh escaped the brunettes mouth. "I'm Jess by the way, I was told to look out for the 'new blonde haired' girl and we don't get many new recruits here so it wasn't too hard to find you."
I smiled gratefully, "Thank you for pulling me out of there, I was so freaked out." My laugh followed hers, "it's nice to meet you Jess, I'm Kaitlyn."
"We better be heading to English, they know you're new and all but not all the teachers here are nice. Especially when it comes to being late for lesson." She linked my arm and began to lead the way.
Just as we were about to walk into English my attention turned to a tall male who sounded a wolf whistle. A blush crept onto my cheeks whereas Jess just rolled her eyes.
"That's Aaron Jacobs, he should be a sophomore by now but he hardly shows up to lessons and has crap grades therefore he's still stuck as a freshmen."
"He's kinda hot." I admitted sheepishly.
"Of course he is, he's Aaron Jacobs but don't get messed up with him, I've heard a lot of things and believe me they're not good." she gave me a stern look but I couldn't help but keep my eyes on him, he can't be that bad, can he?
Jess pulled me into English and saved me from the whole 'introduce yourself' cliché, sadly there was only a desk at the back left for me so I had to go and sit by myself.
That didn't last long. As soon as I sat down Aaron strolled into the class. Everyone looked shocked.
"Mr.Jscobs? Since when have you ever voluntarily attended one of my classes?" Mrs.Morgan asked.
"Since today." He replied bluntly.
"And why is that?"
"Something about English has just caught my eye." a smirk extended across his lips and his eyes met mine. Once again I blushed and looked away.
"Very well, take a seat." Her eyes rolled as he began to walk towards the seat next to me. I could feel my heart pounding, I could tell my cheeks were red.
My eyes burned into the desk as I heard the chair next to me scrape against the floor. I shivered slightly as he leaned closer to me, his breath tickling my neck as he opened his mouth to speak...
"Hey there sexy."
That was the start of the worst mistake I have ever made. Jess was right. She doesn't know that though. No one does. The hell he puts me through every day is my own personal one, there's no point dragging anyone else in to it. I would hate it of he had to hurt someone because of my big mouth. It's better that way.
Anyway he's right. I know he is. I'm not worth anything and I'm lucky that someone like him loves me. I should be grateful that he puts up with me.
I turn to look at the door as I hear a knock, "Come in."
"Hey sis" Brett's head pops around the door, "Mum and dad are gone again, probably for three weeks this time so try and spend the money wisely. I'm going to spend some time with Melissa but I'll keep checking in on you." The social worker said that and I haven't seen her since she left me here...
I force a smile "Okay then."
"Oh and I'm leaving in fifteen minutes so hurry your tiny ass us." He grins cheekily before leaving.
Fifteen minutes? I'm still in my Pj's... Ugh, screw my life.
