One year ago
My alarm clock blared Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream' as I opened my eyes. I looked to notice that it was the usual time for me to shower and get ready for the last day of school before the Christmas break.
Every year for Christmas my family and the Hemmings family always go up to the cabin to celebrate Christmas together.
I got out of bed, leaving the warmness and comfort, as I made my way down the hall and into the bathroom. I grabbed a clean towel as I started the shower up not caring if it's too hot or too cold. I jumped in doing my basic duties as I quickly wrapped a towel around my body.
I ran into my older sister Selena as she was looking down at her phone as her head shot up and glared at me.
"Watch where you're going Hazel" she snapped as I rolled my eyes walking away and back to my bedroom.
I found my attire for the day as I slid on my undergarments as i shimmied into the black skinny jeans which contained a hole on both knees. I grabbed my black tee shirt as I found my dark blue flannel tying it around my waist.
I went over to my dresser applying the cover up as I blow dried my hair brushing it out as I placed a beanie on top of my head.
Grabbing my phone I make my way downstairs to see my dad just leaving for work as he shook his head taking the beanie off.
"No toques in the house! That's why you have acne Hazel Grace" he said as I grabbed it back placing it on top of my head.
"But that's what makeup is for" I smirked at my dad as he smiled slightly.
"No makeup until you're thirty" he said before closing the door as I made my way into the kitchen to see my mum packing up for work.
"Hazel Grace your father said no hats in the house" my mum said as I shook my head.
"He's not here mum it's fine" I said going into the fridge to grab the chocolate milk. I made my way to the counter as my mum kissed our foreheads leaving me and my devil sister alone.
"Why are you so stubborn Hazel?" Selena said as she pushed her chair in. She fixed her tight black mini skirt and adjusted her crop top as I scowled at her clothes.
"I don't know Selena. Why are you such a slut?" I asked smirking as I crossed my arms over my chest. She narrowed her eyes at me as she walked over to me as I noticed her knee high boots.
"What did you say?" She asked raising a brow.
"Do you want me to spell it out?" I asked rolling my eyes grabbing an apple as I turned towards her.
"I'm only a slut because you're a fat pig." She smirked as I narrowed my eyes smiling.
"You don't have to tell me something I already know" I said as her smirk faltered into a frown.
"Hazel." She sighed rubbing her hands over her face as I shook my head.
"Whatever" I said pushing passed her as she grabbed onto my wrist.
"Hazel! You aren't fat! I was joking" she exclaimed as I saw her sad look.
"You don't have to lie to me" I snapped as I pulled my wrist out making my way upstairs to grab my coat.
I grabbed my phone off the charger as I but on my black combat boots making my way downstairs. Selena waiting for me as I hopped into her car.
She was silent, meaning she was thinking.
"Hazel" she started as I looked over to her. "You think you're fat?" She asked as I rolled my eyes looking out the window. "Hazel Grace answer me" she said as we stopped at a stop sign
"Yes" I answered simply as I couldn't look at her.
"You aren't fat" she said as I shook my head.
"Just drop me off" I said not looking at her as she nodded sighing.
When we parked I quickly got out before she could even talk to me. Taking a deep breath I entered the school as I made it to my locker. Spying my best mate I smile as I open it.
"Hazel!" He exclaims as he wraps his arms around my body as I laugh.
"Lucas!" I exclaim. As he puts me down looking all serious.
"That's not my name." He said as I rolled my eyes as he broke out into a huge grin while putting an arm around my shoulder.
I looked and saw one of my classmates standing by my desk as he looked up. I met his eyes as he smiled at me.
"Remington" Luke started as I rolled my eyes. They never liked each other.
"Lucifer" he rolled his eyes at Luke's behaviour as I put my books down.
"Hey Remington" I smiled. He smiled at me as my heart fluttered.
"Hi Hazel" he smiled as I noticed his white teeth as I saw the tattoo on his arm as he rocked back and forth on his feet. "Did you need anything?" I asked holding a laugh as he nodded after five minutes of silence.
"Are you able to hang out? Like today after school?" He asked. "Only if you want to" he added quickly as I giggled.
"Sure" I smiled as he nodded smiling waving goodbye as he walked back to his desk.
"I don't have a good feeling about this Hazel" luke whispered as he looked at Remington who was laughing with Bennett.
"I'm just hanging out with the guy" I said rolling my eyes as I sat down in my seat playing with my pen.
"But what if he pressures you?" Luke asked looking at me wide eyed as I knew he was serious.
"Luke, nothing will happen trust me" I said putting my hand on his as he nodded looking at his english papers. He began to fill in the answers as I did too.
The bell rung signalling it was time for our next class, math. I was was about to pick up my books when someone else did
"Dude" I said as I looked up at the figure. Remington smiling at me as I smiled back blushing.
"Did you want to finish your sentence?" He asked chuckling as I rolled my eyes smiling. "I thought I should help you carry your books to math" he said shyly as I smiled at how cute he was.
"Thanks" I said as we began to walk. It was quiet and awkward. I mean we've never talked before and why all of a sudden he decided to ask to hang? I've known, or seen, Remington around here and there since third grade when I moved to Sydney from Melbourne from Scotland. My family loves to travel and yeah.
"So I can pick you up outside after we get out if that's alright with you." He said as I nodded. We departed ways as I sat in my seat next to Luke as he looked at me.
"I still have a bad feeling about Remington" he mumbled as I looked at him and shrugged.
"Does it matter?" I asked as he looked at me. And shook his head. I smiled to myself knowing that luke can't baby me forever and I'm my own person. I can hang with who I want.
And no one can stop me.
I FEEL BAD CAUSE I HAVENT UPDATED IN FOREVER
