60 days to find love

All my life I have lived in fear of my mother and the practically unbreakable curse. I must find true love and in 60 days or I would be punished to an eternity of pain and misery. How will I do this when I find the one? Who knows? But I do not plan on going down without a fight. A fight for my freedom, my life

10. Chapter 9

All night all I could think about were his words. Over and over again, they replayed in my mind, dragging me out of sleep and putting me in a state of grogginess. What did he mean? Mostly I was frustrated with myself for letting his words get to me. How would I be around him now? All I would be able to think about would be his words.

Finally coming to the decision that laying in bed wasn't going to get me to school, I reluctantly dragged myself from my warm cocoon and got to work getting ready.

After quickly showering with my favourite shampoo, lemon sherbet, I pulled on a Metallica t-shirt with some skinny, ripped jeans. My hair was getting slightly greasy so I put it up in a messy bun. Already a few tendrils had escaped. Having a half grown out fringe was annoying sometimes.

Looking at the time I would have to call Lucy to pick me up. The bus would have already left by now as the bus driver, being the jerk he is, always came and left early. Last question was breakfast. Uh. Toast would have to do. With marmalade. I have no idea why I ever buy it as I hate it with a passion. Maybe it was the fact that my father always used to eat it. Right no more sad thoughts.

After arriving at school, nearly being late due to Lucy's incredibly slow driving, I tried to avoid Ash at all costs. This was surprisingly hard as he seemed to be everywhere. Also due to the fact that I had a strange yearning feeling in me, urging me to be closer to him. This was like the growling all over again though I'm pretty sure that it was mutual as he always seemed to be within at least 10 metres.

Finally making it to lunch, I slipped into my seat beside Lucy. Out if the corner of my eye I could see Ash sitting with all the popular people like Dylan, Kyle and the fake barbies that flocked them. I couldn't honestly imagine having so much caked on makeup on my face. The thing is, I don't particularly mind the makeup it's just their blank personalities. They were all the same, bitchy and mean and if you weren't up to a certain standard, they would walk all over you like dirt.

Turning my attention back to Lucy, I realised she had asked me something and by the looks of it, she was talking about something important to her. "Uhh.....I think.....yes?" It came out as more of a question but it seemed to satisfy her. " I kind of might like him more than a friend. Also I asked him to sit with us but might be a bit late because of his detention." Lucy was content with rambling about whoever this person was.

I took my time to look at her features and wonder why we ever became friends. Her soft, shoulder length, blonde hair swayed slightly as she talked and her doe like blue eyes were widened with excitement. She was the opposite of me. I was awkward and average whereas she was sociable and beautiful.

A person sitting next to me interrupted my thoughts and I turned to the side to examine him. By my first judgement he had average chocolate brown hair, slightly spiked up and hazel eyes. But with a closer look you could see his smooth skin and defined cheekbones. Certainly not bad.

"Hello, my name is Josh. Nice to meet you. I've heard a lot about you."

And when he smiled cute little dimples appeared. Not as cute as Ash. Woah. No no. I have got to stop this comparing.

I blushed slightly and glared at Lucy. "Better be good things." I said laughing slightly.

"Only the best." He replied winking. Cheeky git. As I continued blushing I looked away and my eyes naturally fell on his table. Ash's. I was surprised to see his eyes already trained on our table and I followed his eyes to wear they were glaring at Josh.

Suddenly I had a perfect idea how to win over Ash and defeat the curse, which was generally the same thing. I smirked then.

Ash didn't stand a chance.
