A Sweet escape

It starts off as Josh and Emma just starting to talk to each other, flirting, and eventually going out. It took them long enough that Katie got a boyfriend. While on one of their dates Autumn calls Emma and tells her she has to get her butt home, like pronto. Autumn said she had bad news, and that she wasn't gonna say something like it on the phone. When Emma got to her house, Josh had given her a ride, and walked through the door she saw that everybody had either angered or sad faces. No, not sad, devastated. She asked what happened and that’s when she found out that Katie was found dead after Softball practice. Emma and the rest of her friends set out to find her killer. (The killer turns out to be Lizzy. The guy she cheated on Josh with chose Katie over her so she has a jealous self centered fit and kills Katie to get what she wants.)


2. Chapter 2



It’s the first day back to school. My life has been perfect until a few weeks ago.


July 16, 1998

My girlfriend Lizzy and I are walking to the store to pick up some junk food for the small party for tonight. That’s when I noticed that when I wasn’t looking Lizzy was flirting with other guys behind my back. At the party I couldn’t find Lizzy, so I go searching for her and I find her making out with some other guy that I don’t know in the bathroom.

“Hey Lizzy, what the heck?!?!?”, I say.

“Ahhh!! Josh, oh my gosh I am so sorry for you to find out this way. I’m sorry I just "don’t like you anymore.” Lizzy said

“That’s alright. I don’t care I was going to break up with you anyway. We’re just too different from each other. I hope that we’ll stay friends though.” I said

“Uh...yeah sure see ya.”


Since the break up, I felt better and relieved more than upset at Lizzy. I have to let it go and move on. My friends say they see a change in me and that I’m not myself anymore. When I walk into English, I notice Emma sitting in her spot just doodling. I sit right behind her. I notice she looks like her usual self today, wearing blue jeans with a neon zebra tank top that she looks great in. During class, I think about what would my life change into if I found the one girl that is my forever.

There’s a lot of stuff to Emma that some people don’t know, like how she bites her lip when she's nervous about something, or how she blushes when she's embarrassed. She looks beautiful but if you say that to her she just denies and says she's just plain. When the bell rings I just sit there and wait until everyone is out of the classroom until I go up and talk to her.

“Hey.” I said

“Are you talking to me?” She asks in her bell like voice.

I laugh “ Yeah I am. Is that a problem?”

“No I mean why are you talking to me? You always only talk to other people that hang with your girl. Why is today any different?” She asks

“Why can’t I talk to other people then the people Lizzy talks to and she's not my girl anymore.” I  say with a little anger in my voice.

“Oh, I’m sorry I didn’t know” She says in an apologizing tone.

“It's alright it just happened A couple weeks ago. How are you today?” I reply  

“Oh, I’m sorry to hear about that. My day is going okay so far, what about yours?” she asks.

“My day is just fine thanks. Don’t worry about it. So do you have a boyfriend or someone you're interested in?” I ask.

“Um, no I don’t have a boyfriend, but I do like someone but he doesn’t like be back I don’t think. Do you like anybody, or not because you just got out of a relationship?”

I feel relieved that she doesn't have a boyfriend, but jealous of the person who she likes, and I don’t know why I feel this way.

“Well who do you like? Why don’t you think he doesn’t like you back, did you ask him if he did or not? Yes, I do like someone right after I got out of a relationship but I don’t think she knows I exists. ” I say shepley.

“I can’t tell you who I like because I don’t know if I like him anymore because I liked him for 3 years and I’m tired for waiting for him to see if he likes me and asks me out. Why don’t you just go up to the girl you like and ask her out, to see if she likes you back?”

 I look at her and say, “You should wait a little longer to see if the guy you like comes out of his shell and asks you out don’t give up so quickly, you never know how long it takes for a guy to figure out his feelings for a girl. I can’t just go up to the girl I like and say Hey do you want to go out with me sometime? It’s not that easy you know,” I say and walk away.


It’s time for lunch now, I stand in line with my friends for my food. I hear them talking about Emma and how she looks today. I hear the guys mostly say that she looks hot. The girls just say she just wants attention and goes back to talking about the new clothing line coming out. I see Emma and I notice she's with some of her friends. When we get our lunch we go sit down at our normal table and start to eat our lunch.
