The next morning
I woke up and found that it was 8:00 and I was late to school. I got up and went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and fix my hair and makeup. When I looked in the mirror I saw that my makeup from yesterday was caked all over my face. I quickly washed my face and reapplied new makeup, then I curled the ends of my hair and threw on a plain white tshirt, a denim jacket and black skinny jeans with my white converse.
I already knew that I missed the bus, so I walked very quickly to school. As soon as I got there I went to my first class, English. As I walked in Mrs. Smith said, "You're late, Amanda." "I know, I know. I just woke up late and I missed the bus." As I said that I took my seat. For the next 45 minutes we wrote a paper on whether we believed in time travel or not. I pretty much just wrote about the movie "Back to the Future". As the bell rang at the end of class I grabbed my stuff and headed to my locker.
When I was done putting my stuff in my locker, I closed it and saw Luke standing there. I jumped back because I didn't even see him coming over here. "Did I scare you?" He smirked. I just stood there, not saying a word. "I was wondering if you would like to hang out after school today?" He asked. "Why would I want to go anywhere with you?" I replied, walking away.
As my last morning class ended, the bell rang signalling us to go to lunch. I grabbed my lunch and walked to a table to sit by Ashton. As we were eating, I told Ashton about what Luke told me after first period. "What is wrong with that guy? First he throws you on the ground and now he asks you to hang out with him?!" I could tell, Ashton was pissed off.
I got up and went to confront Luke. "What the hell is your problem?!" I yelled. "What are you talking about?" Luke questioned, already knowing what I was talking about. "I swear if you ever mess with Amanda again, you're dead!" With that being said, I walked away.
'Why was Ashton sticking up for me?' I thought to myself 'He has never been this protective over me before.' With those thoughts in my head, the bell rang, the start of my afternoon classes. The rest of the day was quiet, I didn't talk to anyone, and nobody talked to me.
*skip to the end of school*
The last class of the day finally ended and it was time to head home. I don't have a car and the bus only comes in the morning, so I have to walk. After a few minutes of walking, I heard someone coming behind me. I turned around and saw a boy with red hair. "Hey, you're Amanda, right?" He asked me. "Uhm, yeah. You are?" I have never seen this boy before so I didn't know what else to say. "Oh, right. Sorry, my name is Michael and I am one of Luke's friends, he talks about you all the time"
'Why does that prick even want anything to do with me?' I thought to myself. After a minute of thinking I finally replied, "Nice to meet you Michael, as you obviously already know, my name is Amanda."
