Pencil & Paper

Celine Taylor is a girl; popular, good looks, clever, daring, thoughtful and kind. There's only one problem - she's forced not to be interested in love. Blake Dowson is a guy who's creative, funny, caring and understandable, loves writing, cats, and most of all, Celine. Even when they start becoming more than friends, Celine still doesn't know how to tell Blake that she is forbidden to be with him. When he gives up his opportunity to go to a university and goes where Celine is, does she change her mind? Is it really worth the sacrifice?


1. Chapter 1: Don't judge me





*Blake's P.O.V*

Honestly, I don't even know where to start. The things that made me happy, sad, lonely, excited, or forgiven seemed like it never existed. Everything in my mind was directed to a figure that walked in through the classroom door. Everyone stopped talking and faced towards this girl. She walked elegantly and easily, and she smiled and laughed to break the silence. Long brown hair trailed below her shoulders, and warm emerald eyes scanned the area. I held my breath as it flew towards me, but she didn't seem to notice me. I looked down, hurt.

There was one thing about this girl. A thing no other girl in the school had. Her face had no sign of make up but she was still beautiful. I had not seen any girl in the school without make up, and that made this girl special. I dropped my eyes down to my pad. I had just written down all my thoughts onto the sheet of white. Shoot. I silently ripped it out and put it in the rubbish so no one else could see, but it was too late.


I looked up and I blushed as Mrs Dove frowned at me with her glasses about to fall off her face, like always. I turned away, ready to be embarrassed in front of the whole class, but when I turned back she was already standing in front of the class. She beckoned to the girl to come forward.

"Class, this is Celine. Celine, I want you to introduce yourself to everyone. After that, you may choose a seat."

I smiled. There was a spare seat beside me. I then sat back in my seat, waiting for her voice to fill the room.

"Hi everyone. My name's Celine. I like animals and I'm vegetarian. Don't judge me for who I am because I'm me and no one can change that. I like shopping and cartoons and reading magazines. You can call me 'C', everyone calls me that. I hope you have a really good day. Thank you."


*Celine's P.O.V*

I was really proud of my speech. I was staying up all last night working on it and it was worth it. Heaps of people pointed to empty seats for me to sit on. I stood there smiling, looking around. In the end I couldn't decide so I just sat next to a blonde girl.

"Hey, my name is Emily," she said. I just smiled. 

The day went past, and in every lesson I learnt more and more. This is much better than homeschooling, I thought. I had got to know a bunch of people at lunch, and they were all really friendly. The only thing that bothered me was that they all had boyfriends, and I don't really care about love, or boys. I felt left out at that point. But then I remembered my speech; don't judge me for who I am, I'm me and no one can change it. I hope they all listened to that part.

In maths I saw this brown-haired boy looking at me. Awkward as hell. He looked away when he noticed me stare back, and so I carried on with my algebra. I imagined him with me walking along the beach, or staring at the sunset. I let go of that thought. My mum was the one who took me away from love, my mum said I don't need it until I'm an adult. When universities and things clash, everything just gets torn apart, she said not long ago. It is only one more year until we start choosing our universities, and I'm excited. The only reason my mum was scared to put me in a school was because of boys. It took a huge amount of arguing to convince her that I won't be with them. And it's going to stay that way.
