2. Chapter One~ School

I hopped off the public bus and made my way into school, the whole journey was spent listening to a little known band called '5 Seconds Of Summer'. They had recently done a cover of Teenage Dirtbag and I had fallen in love with it, it repeated again and again until I reached my first class.

I walked through the narrow doorway into my English class, no one bothered to look up apart from my friend Emily. She frantically waved at me, I let a small smile creep onto my face.

"Sup Bruh" Emily greeted me with her Australian accent, a smile spread ear to ear.

"Hey" I reply half-heartedly still shattered.

"Done your homework?" she inquired.

I pulled out a poem with notes scribbled around the outside of it, analysing every single word. I loved English and I was hopeing to achieve big.

The rest of the lesson went quickly, Emily and I discussed 5 Seconds Of Summer, she was obsessed with Ashton Irwin, the bands drummer. I was more of a Luke Hemmings girl to be honest, I loved everything about him...

After I had fantasised about Luke Hemmings it was lunch. Emily and I headed to the lunch hall where we selected our confectionary.

"£2.60" The cashier said sharply. I gave her the exact amount of change and left with Emily not far behind me.

The rest of the day flew by, mostly because I was daydreaming or talking the lessons away. As the final school bell rang I darted out of class. My bus was always early and it wouldn't wait for anyone.

I made it. Just.

~ 2 Hours Later ~

I enjoyed being home alone, which my mum didn't understand. She came home two hours after I got home, she always felt like she neglected me, but to be honest I enjoyed my own company. *DING*. The screen to my iPhone lit up...

From: Mum x

I'm going to be an hour late darling, I have a lot of paperwork to fill out. I've got some exciting news for you too. See you soon x

I dismissed the the text and carried on listening to my playlist and sketching a few portraits out.

~ Another 2 Hours Later... ~

"HELLO?" I heard my mum bellow from downstairs. I threw my sketch pad off my lap and onto my bed, I pulled the door open and galloped down the stairs to greet my mother.

I hugged her tightly. "How was work?"

"Fantastic!" she replied instantly, "I have some great news!"...
