Grace is going on school camp! She can hardly wait! Until she finds out who she is sharing a tent with...

-Graces POV-


I sat up in bed on the morning of camp, knowing that this will be my last sleep in a proper warm bed. I am dreading tonight, when I will have to get into my pyjamas with a boy watching.

I sighed and dragged myself out of bed. I got dressed, brushed my hair and went downstairs for breakfast.

"Morning Mum!!" I said, a little too loudly. I was trying to act like I was really excited for camp so that mum wouldn't think she had spent her money on nothing. 

"Morning honey" she said smiling and handing me a bowl of cereal "You seem very keen on going to camp!" " Oh I am really excited!" I replied, but when she turned away I rolled my eyes.

Just then dad came downstairs in his work uniform, kissed mum, hugged me and said "Have fun at camp, darling!" "I will!" I replied, lying to him just like I had lied to mum.


Later in the morning I lugged a heavy suitcase, a mattress and a sleeping bag down the road, along with my normal school bag slung over my shoulders. The bus came around the corner and stopped. I heaved all my things onto the bus and into a luggage rack above me. I sat down on the seat and sighed. Someone sat down beside me, but I didn't care who it was until they offered me a lollie. Matthew. I sighed again but accepted the lollie.


-Matthews POV-


She didn't notice me until I offered her a lollie. But at least she knows I'm there. We sat in silence for a while until a movie started playing . Someone handed around popcorn and grace and I shared a bowl.

Halfway through the movie she fell asleep on my shoulder. I smiled at her and put my my arm around her. This was definitely a start.
