Run For Your Money

Genevieve Valentius Is like any normal teenager; high school drama, boys and searching for the love of her life. But she doesn't realize that she already found him, on the day that she was born. She meets Baldassare, who leads her out of her comfort zone, pushing her to her limits, showing her who she really is. But the question is, will she open herself up enough to realize what has been right in front of her since birth?


2. Better Late than Never

My alarm clock awakens me at 7 am from my coma-like sleep, telling me that it is now my first day as a senior in high school. I pull myself from my bed and grad my robe and go downstairs for breakfast.

"Good morning everyone!" I say when I reach the kitchen.

"Hello Genevieve. How did you sleep?" asks her mom.


"Morning Evie" two voices say at the same time.

"Morning Xavier. Morning Calix. How are you two?"

"Good. I am excited for sophomore year.." says Calix

"Where are Annette and Zeus?" I ask.

"Nettie is sick. She is still asleep and Ze-"

Something jumps up on me and almost knocks me over and I can only guess who it is.

"Gevie!!!" Zeus shouts.

I bring him around to my front. "Zeus!! What are you doing jumping up on me this early?"

"Saying good morning to you" says the little 5 year old.

"Gotcha. Well let’s get off of your favorite sibling and eat breakfast, ok?"

"Ok!!" and he jumps off.

"Umm I thought I was your favorite sibling!!" Xavier tells Zeus, pretending to be hurt. Zeus only laughs and shakes his head, showing that Xavier isn't.

"That's horrible that Annette can't start her first day in 5th grade healthy" Xavier responds.

"It is a shame that she won't be attending school today. Breakfast is ready guys." says our mother and we go sit down around our table. She brings over the plates which are all stacked with fresh blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs. She sits with us and we talk and eat until 7:30 comes around and we all go to get ready for school, except for Zeus who helps mom wash the dishes.

"Got dibs on the shower first!!!" I yell before I even get to the stairs and hear Calix groan. We have to share a bathroom.  I get up the stairs and head into the bathroom locking the door behind me. I turn on the shower and step into the warm spray. 20 minutes later I hear a pound on the door and someone yells 'come on. Your time is up!!' So I turn off the water and get out. Wrapping a towel around myself, I go to my room.

"THANK GOD!! Took you long enough!!" says Calix before stepping into the bathroom. The shower then turns on and I hear 'GENEVIEVE!!!’ I laugh at this. I used all the hot water.

I enter my room and go to my closet and pick out what I am going to wear for school. I decided on a simple sun dress with knee high, silver gladiator sandals. I brushed out my straight blonde hair and did a quick swipe of mascara. I finished off the look with a silver head band, hippie style. I grabbed my bag and headed out to the living room, where I waited for Calix, so I could drive him to school. Xavier had already left because he had an early class at the college. 

"Calix!! We are going to be late if you don't get down here!!" I yell.

"Calm your hormones Ev!! I'm coming right now!!" replies Calix, walking down the stairs.

"We can't be late for school. We live in Alabama. People here are punctual."

"Whatever. Can we stop and grab a coffee? I'll pay."

I groan and jump into my Jeep. "Sure. I guess."

"Yes! Thanks Evie! You are my favorite sister in the whole world!"

"Hell ya I am!!" We laugh and head off to the local cafe.

We order our drinks and Calix pays while I find a seat. But before i can manage to bet my butt in it, my phone vibrates and I see a text from my friend.


Hey where are you??

I look at the time and it tells me that if we don't leave now, we will be late for first period. I grab Calix by the arm and drag him to the car.

"Hey!! watch the goods!! I can't be all banged up for the first week of school!!" yells Calix.

"Why? it's not like you have a girlfriend. And besides, we are going to be late!!"

"Um I'm trying but she won't go out with me if I end up with road rash!!"

I stare at him in disbelief as I buckle my seat belt. "And who might this future girlfriend be?"

He blushes and says "Anya Yaroslav. She is this really pretty Russian girl in my English class last year." His eyes get glazed over and continues, "She has dark brown hair and these hazel eyes that... Ugh. Who am I kidding. I couldn't ever get a girl like her.

I know her brother, Viktor. We are best friends. "Calix, don't be so hard yourself. You could get any girl that you wanted, so why is the one you want so hard to get?"

"She is perfect. And I'm... me!!"

"Dude. Have you seen yourself?" I gesture towards him. We come up to a red light and I turn to look at him. Seriously though, Calix has got the goods. His Italian ancestry defiantly shows with his  tan skin and brown hair but the French blue eyes that run in the family are what makes him good looking. He is well built and, honestly, could get any one, guy or girl for that matter, that he wanted.

"Thanks Evie." He smiles and jumps out of the car as I pull into the school parking lot. When i get out of the car, I see Calix walking over to Anya and her group of friends. They walk off, leaving him Calix and her all alone. I see her smile and nod. He looks up and sees me watching and waves. I can't help but smile and wave back. He turns back to her and they continue talking.

I almost have a heart attack when I hear someone say "So. I see your brother is making a move on my sister."

"Hello to you Viktor. I've missed you" I say and turn to see my friend decked out in a Hawaiian shirt.  I laugh.

"Vhat? You've never seen a guy wear a Hawaiian shirt before?"

"Not on someone like you!!" Viktor looks like Tyler Hoechlin, from Teen Wolf, meaning he doesn't look good in Hawaiian shirts. Plus he's gay.

We laugh and I hook arms with him and we walk into school, ready to kill this first week at LAMP High School.
