Lucy's pov

Hi my name is Lucy Miller. I'm 16 years old and I'm an only child. My brother died when he was only 3 years old. I went to Fredlim high. I live with my mom and dad in Michigan . I moved here when I was 6 years old because my parents got job promotions. I never liked it here there was always so much snow and it was freezing.


6:15 am

"Lucy wake up" my mom called out to me.

I looked at my alarm and I wondered why it hadn't gone off. I quickly gathered my clothes and went straight to the shower. I was still half asleep so I went in the shower while the water was still freezing cold. " Ahhh, today is not going to be a good day." I yelled. "Honey is everything alright" my mom asked from behind the door. " yea mom it's just that water is freezing cold." I replied. " alright well you only have 25 more minutes!" She said after leaving. I sighed and finished taking my shower. I got out and changed into my outfit which was just an over large sweater and some leggings with my black combat boots. I finished dressing and curling my hair. I went downstairs to grab an apple. After that I was on my way out. I walked for 5 minutes and I finally got to school. I saw my best friend Brandy. I walked over to her and she was just texting away to her boyfriend Josh. I decided to surprise her and she screamed in my ear. "Ow was that really necessary?" "Um yea you scared me!" " oh so who are you texting?" I asked even though I already knew the answer. "Oh Josh he said that he was going to go to the doctors but he would be here later!" She said. "Oh alright then let's get going or we're going to be late to class." "Right let's go." I went to my locker to get my books. When I turned around my crush Jake Trempton was starring at me. I automatically blushed. It seemed he was coming my way but he walked straight passed me to the prep Cassandra. Ugh. Nobody ever seems to notice me unless they want me to do their homework or something. They always said stuff to me about how I was the freak of the school and how no one liked me. So I decided to stop trying so hard like I had to. Even the losers and nerds hated me. Luckily I had Brandy. She was popular but she still hanged out with me. She is my next door neighbour, and we have known each other since we were babies so she kind of said that she wouldn't ever leave me.
