1. Countdown


Graduation is just one week away, if you could even call it that. It's the ceremony for completing middle school. Basically, congratulations you have four more years of school. Well, that's the way I see it. I am going to spend four more years with the same people who have teased me, for my height and my clothes, since primary school. The only person who had gotten me through it was Justin. He, Ryan, and Chaz, have always been here but Justin is my best friend. 

I thought about all of this as I lie in bed waiting for my alarm to go off. I always wake up before my alarm, thinking, and even though I know it is coming I cringe every time my alarm rings. Rolling over in my bed, I slam my hand on the alarm and slowly kick the covers off. It was always so cold in the morning. Looking in the mirror, I sighed and ran a brush through my hair. Eventually, I got dressed and left my room, dragging my feet. 

"Honestly Kaelee, couldn't you wear just one of the dresses I bought you?" My mom shrieked. I shook my head and sat down at the table. My mom had thought having a girl would mean a lot of shopping, pageants, and dance recitals; but instead she got me.  

"I like what I wear." I said simply. My jeans were never too tight, and you can never go wrong with a t-shirt or hoodie. "Besides, it is what I am most comfortable in."

"I would just like to see you wear one for me." My mother sighed putting a plate in front of me. She always made the best breakfast. 

"Maybe I will wear one for graduation." I suggested with my mouth full. My mother smiled and patted my back. 

It was silent in the kitchen as I finished my breakfast. The two of us didn't have very much in common, so we hardly talked. As I shoved the last bite in my mouth, I stood and dropped my dishes in the sink before running back upstairs. I popped my head into the study; my dad had already left for work, he was a busy man but he always made time to see me. 

Once I was ready, I ran out the door so I wouldn't miss the bus. The driver gave me a look as I hurried up the steps. The doors shut and she punched the gas; I almost fell flat on my face as the bus lurched forward. I tried my best to ignore the snickers coming from the people beside me; this was how it always was. I sat close to the front; mostly because I wasn't exactly allowed in the back. I dug through my book bag and pulled out my phone. There was one text.

'One more week!' It read, from Justin. I smiled and replied quickly.

'I know. But have I ever told you how much I hate buses?' After the text was sent, I looked around. Friends sat together gossiping about the past weekend, but every so often it seemed that they would glance over at me and whisper something to one another. When our eyes would meet they would turn away laughing loudly. I took a breath and turned away, the driver sped through the neighborhood and screeched to a stop as we neared the next pick up. I looked out the window, knowing what stop this was, and saw Justin grinning widely. It was really cheesy, making me want to laugh. He all but ran onto the bus knocking over the kids in front of him. He fell into the seat next to mine, and it seemed that all the whispering had stopped. I looked over his shoulder to see everyone glaring, I sighed.

"Hey Kae." Justin said cheerfully. He was extremely giddy. As the bus lurched forward again, our heads slammed into the back of the seat in front of us.

"H-hey," I greeted him. I heard movement from behind us and knew that Ryan and Chaz had come to join us, or rather Justin. The only time they were around me was when Justin was, but I didn't mind.

"Guess what?!" He said really excitedly, almost unable to contain himself. 

"What?" We all replied simultaneously. Ryan and Chaz were leaning over the back of our seat, listening intently.

"First, this really hot girl moved into the house next door, you know, the one with the pool." Chaz, Ryan and Justin all fist bumped and laughed. I just rolled my eyes laughing. 

"Did you talk to her?" I asked raising an eyebrow.

"No, I'm too chicken shit." He said laughing, "but I do have all summer to say hi."

"Not if I make a move first." Ryan said laughing, punching Justin playfully. 

"Well, I hate to break it to you guys, but I have already called dibs." Chaz said, leaning back. I threw my head back and laughed, boys were ridiculous.



The bus pulled into the parking lot and the driver opened the doors. We all flooded out and walked into the hell hole called Moholand Middle School. I looked over at Kaelee, she was no longer smiling like she had been on the bus. Her strawberry blonde hair fell in front of her face as she looked at the ground. I hated to see her so uncomfortable, it wasn't fair. I nudged her and smiled as we walked into the eighth grade hallway. Teachers stood outside their rooms watching us intently, and garbage cans were placed in the middle of the hallway to throw trash from our lockers into. I really hated this last week before school ended, we did absolutely nothing. It was pointless to even go, but my mom would never let me skip. Everyone was saying the same thing as we walked down the halls,

"I can't believe middle school is almost over,"

"We are going to be freshmen next year." or,

"I am so excited for summer."

As for myself, I was determined to make this the best summer yet. This week didn't really matter as long as summer went as planned. Then I would be moving on to bigger things.


Hello Lovelies, if there are any... This is our first chapter, co-written with my sister. We just wanted to make sure everyone understood the only character we can claim is Kaelee, and others not involving Justin. We tweaked their personalities to fit the plot of our story and we don't want anyone to change the way they think about Justin or his friends. Make sure to like/favorite and comment! It is really helpful. We need your love
