*skip the weekend*
I woke up to the horrible sound of my alarm clock. It's Monday. Oh Monday, how I hate you.
I dragged myself down the stairs to the kitchen. "First day of school!" my dad said excitedly. All I could let out was a groan as I sat at the table.
My mom was making breakfast, which was rare. It was probably for the reason that it was my first day of school. "Eat up!" my mom said and placed the huge portion of food on the table.
"Mom, I can't eat all that." I laughed and stated to dig in. I was full half way through, so I pushed it aside and ran upstairs to get ready.
Immediately, I grabbed my vans. "You never disappoint me, vans." I smiled and kept looking. I decided to put on a black skater skirt and tucked in a white shirt. With that, I grabbed my backpack and ran out the door.
"Nervous?" my dad asked as we drove to school.
"You could never imagine."
"Ariana Bradley..oh, here we go!" one of the ladies at the front office said. She handed me my schedule and locker info. I said thank you and left to search for my locker. This school was huge, and I never thought I would find it.
Once I got all my books and binders in my locker, I decided to grab the stuff I needed for my first class. Kids usually looked at me, wondering who I was while I walked through the crowded hallway. That only made me more nervous.
When I entered the class, there was only one person and the teacher. The teacher greeted me and I was left to look where to sit. There's were endless seats, but it was my chance to make a friend.
I looked at the boy in the back of the room and started to walk his way.
"Is this seat taken?" I asked, pointing at the empty chair. He looked up quickly, surprised.
"Oh..n-no." he smiled. I sat down and put my books on the floor.
"So, what's your name?" I asked, looking at the blonde haired boy with the small fringe.
"I'm Luke. You must be new to have the mind to talk to me.." he said and looked down.
"I'm Ariana. Plus, I am new but that doesn't mean I have to judge people automatically." I smiled and he did back.
"Wow, I like your penguin folder. They're my favorite animal." he said and I was so happy to hear that.
"They're my second favorite!" I said happily.
"Why second?" we both laughed. We chatted for the longest time, talking about similarities, until some group of people walked in.
"Oh no.." Luke said and hid his head.
"What? Who are they?" I asked looking at them. They sorta looked like Luke, but different hair color and stuff like that.
"Luke, stop paying girls to talk to you!" one of them said. I was surprised, and angry.
"He's not. I'm his friend." I smiled and stood up.
"Who the hell would be friends with him?" he laughed and looked me straight in the eye.
"I'm Michael, and this is my friend Calum. Your 'friends' worst nightmare." He smirked. Calum seemed like he didn't want to be there, bullying Luke.
"Can you just leave Luke alone? I'll be here all day to defend him." I said and looked over at Luke, who was about to cry.
"Fine, I can't punch girls anyways. He'll just get it later." Michael said and pulled Calum with him out of the room.
"Thanks for that. Nobody's ever stood up for me." He said.
"You're welcome, I'm here to help you. I can't let my first friend here get bullied." I smiled and waited for class to start. We chatted until the bell rang and students took their seats.
*Skip to lunch*
I looked around after I got my food, searching for Luke. I saw him at a table, by himself. I walked over and sat across from him. "Hey." I said.
"Hey Ariana, didn't think you'd talk to me still." He said, playing with his food.
"Why wouldn't I?" I laughed and looked around the cafeteria. I saw Michael and Calum at a huge table filled with a bunch of people. Calum looked at me with puppy eyes, kinda like he was telling me to help him. I looked away quickly and started talked to Luke.
"So, what do you like to do out of school?" I asked.
"I like to sing. Thats mostly it." he said the first part sort of quietly.
"Sing? That's so cool! I like to go to the beach, luckily I live near one." I smiled and thought about California.
"I live by a beach!" he smiled.
"Really?" I said. I wanted to ask if he wanted to hang out, but we've only known each other for a day.
"Do you think..you maybe want to..go hang out at the beach after school?" he asked nervously.
"Of course!" I said and are the rest of my lunch.
The day went so slow after that, but I was excited to go to the beach with one of my new friends.
Today couldn't have gone any better.
