You and I

It all starts when tragic hits Whitney, a high school student, and changes her life forever. She thought nothing could go right until a new neighbor moves in across the hall...


1. Chapter 1

Whitney's POV

I didn't know what to do as the tears rolled down my cheeks. The pain in my chest feels like it's going to burst any second. How did this day turn out like this?

*24 hours earlier*

"Mom come on we have to go!" I yelled at my mom. We are always late for everything and I refuse to be late for this. I was invited to THE party of the year. You know what I'm talking about. The party that only the popular people get invited to. Me and my friend, Jasmine, are the most popular girls in school so obviously we were invited.

"I know hunny! I'm coming!" Yells my mom.

I spent the whole day picking out my outfit and decided that I would wear a pair of white high wasted shorts and a pink crop top. I paired this with black high top converse. My brunette hair was curled in perfect ringlets flowing down to the bottom of my back. My makeup was smokey eyes and pink lip gloss.

My mom started the car and we were off. Your probably wondering why my mom is driving me. So last week I got a C on my math test so she took away my car. My parents are awesome, but super strict when it comes to grades. They want me to go to Yale. I love Yale but Stanford has always fascinated me. My parents just don't know that.

We pulled into the drive way of the huge mansion. I like in Beverly Hills so everyone lives in mansions.

"Bye mom! Don't forget I'm spending the night at Jasmines house," I told my mom. Jasmine is my best friend. We are like twins when it comes to looks. We are both brunette and both having fit bodies. We are kind of health freaks. We both have very similar smiles and our styles mirror each other! You can see why we are friends.

"Oh yeah I almost forgot. Just make sure you don't forget about having tea tomorrow with your grandma! Don't be late!" My mother said.

"I won't mom. Love you"

"Love you too honey!"

I entered the party and instantly looked for Jasmine. I saw her at the beer pong table looking adorable in black high waisted shorts and a light blue long sleeved crop top. She wore white high top converse. I'm for sure going to have to borrow that outfit.

She saw me and waved me over. As I walked over someone grabbed my arm. I turned around and saw my brother, Sean. He's 19, a year older then I am, but wouldn't miss a high school party.

"Hey Sean! How did I know you were going to be here?"

"Because your my sister," he said as he smiled. Sean was very attractive when it came to looks. He was total opposite of me. He got my dads light brown hair and green eyes. I got my moms brunette hair and poop brown eyes. Lucky me huh?

"Right. How did you get here?"

"Mark drove me. I won't be able to drive by the end of the night," he said.

My brother was a bit of a drinker but never got behind the wheel of a car. He always made sure someone was there to drive him home.

"Well I will see you around then! Be careful!"

I walked towards Jasmine as my brother went the other direction.

"Hey Whitney. Want to be my partner for a round?" Jasmine asked me.

"You know I can't turn down beer pong!" I replied.

We played around two rounds before I needed something more fruity to drink. I went in the house and grabbed a strawberry margarita. They are my favorite of course! I chugged it down like I haven't had a drink all night. I was very resistant to alcohol as I drank it so much so I still felt completely sober. Or so I thought.

*The next day*

"Whitney! Whitney! Wake up!" Yelled jasmine.

"Jasmine? What happened?" I asked.

"You got drunk Whitney and you have tea with your grandma. She's her to pick you up!" She yelled.

"What!! Oh my gosh I haven't gotten ready or anything!" I yelled.

"I know! That's why you have to get up now!" She yelled back.

I grabbed my bag and ran to the bathroom. My head pounded with each step, but that doesn't matter right now. I needed to put it aside and get ready. I showered in two seconds an put on a yellow summer dress with nude flats. I quickly blow dried my hair and put on my cream colored tea hat. I applied minimal amount of makeup for a natural look and ran down stairs.

When I got down stairs my grandma was sitting on the couch.

"Hey grandma, sorry I'm-" I looked at my grandma and saw her eyes puffy and red.

"Grandma. What's wrong?" I asked.

"Sweetly, it's-it's your parents," She said.

My heart skipped a beat as I was instantly taken over with fear as to what she was talking about.

"They got in a car accident. I came to take you to the hospital. I don't know anything yet," she said as she cried.

I couldn't even speak. I just grabbed my stuff and ran out the door to the car. My grandma followed slowly behind and started the car. What happened to my parents? Why doesn't my grandma know anything?
