The next morning I woke up and jumped out of bed ready to start the day. I walked to my closet and pulled out an All Time Low shirt then I went to my dresser and pulled out some black skinny jeans and my undergarments. I then walked into my hallway and into the bathroom. I turned on my shower and quickly got in to wash myself.
Once I was done with my shower, dried off, brushed my teeth, put on my deodorant, and dressed, I began to blow dry my light brown hair. After I finished doing that, I grabbed my iphone and set it on my dock putting it on shuffle. The first song that came on was Alone Together by Fall Out Boy. I started to softly sing along while I finished straightening my hair and putting on my makeup that included: mascara, cover up, and chapstick.
After I finished that, I walked to my kitchen and grabbed a granola bar while walking out the door to head to school. I'm currently seventeen and in my senior year of high school. I'm so excited to almost be done with it I hate school and most of the people there.
My friend Grace was just pulling up into my driveway when I walked out. Grace is my best friend. She has been since we were three, our parents are also really close so that's how we met. Grace is short, like me, with straight blonde hair that goes down to her mid back, and really pretty blue eyes.
After she pulled up, I jumped in her car and we headed off to school.
"How do you think you're going to do on your test today?" Grace asked me while keeping her eyes on the road in front of her while she was driving.
"I think I'll do pretty well, I mean we did study for like three hours last night." I replied and we both laughed at how long we actually studied for. Usually we don't study, we get everything in class, but this time things just weren't clicking so we had to go over it a few more times.
"Yeah we'll be fine" Grace said still smiling.
We sat in silence for a little bit which I was glad for, because I could eat my granola bar, but I had to ask a question I've been thinking about since last night. I wanted to know more about the guys I saw last night, I know I saw them fighting, but I've never seen the gang members from the Jet Black Hearts before and I wanted to know a little more about them.
"Hey Grace?" I asked my best friend.
"Do you know anything about the Jet Black Hearts gang that you haven't already told me?"
I already knew that they had many members, their colors were black and red, they were known for murders, drug deals, and most of the members slept around quite a bit too. But that's all I knew about them. Well that and I should supposedly stay away from them. I mean I guess I should if they're going around murdering people, but I can't help but think that maybe they're not that bad. Maybe they're killing the bad guys. I'm not saying that they should go around killing everyone, no one deserves to die, but maybe they're defending themselves or other people.
"Um... well I know their leader's name and his main members of the group but that's about it. To be honest, I don't want to know much about them they're dangerous. Why are you asking?"By this time, we had pulled up to school and we were parked in the parking lot.
"You do? Can you tell me? I'm just curious. And you know what I think Grace, stop saying they're such bad people when you don't even know them." Grace just rolled her eyes at me and then replied to me.
"Sophie, I'll tell you but I'm serious stay away from them. They kill people and I really don't want to lose my best friend."
"Grace it's fine. It's not like I know any of them."
"Okay, I don't know many of the members in the gang but I know the leader's name is Michael, I heard that he's the worst. Whatever you do, never go near him-"
"Grace I know. You've told me that like a thousand times" I interrupted my friend.
"Okay, some of the other members names are Luke, Calum, and Ashton. They're best friends and are almost always around each other."
"Oh. Cool." I told her deciding not to tell her about what I saw last night, knowing that she'll freak. We got out of the car and were heading into the school when I swear I saw the same guy from last night. The one I made eye contact with. He was with three other guys and they were talking to some guys from my school.
I couldn't concentrate at all today. Not even for my test. I kept thinking about if I really did see those gang members again today or if I just imagined it.
