1. Chapter one

~~ Prologue~

- Flashback-

 

Tears broke free and rolled down the little girl cheek as she sat on a bench outside the funeral home. She tightens her grip on the bouquet of flowers in her hand as she sobbed. As family and friends walk into the funeral home, They will stop and give the five-year-old girl a hug and promised her everything will be okay that her mother was in heaven watching over her. But they didn't know the only thing going through that five-year-old girl head was that she was completely alone now with no one to love her. As she sat on that bench sobbing quietly to herself. A little boy walks over to her and reaches out to wipe her tears away, she looked up, her green eyes widen as she stares at this boy who also looked like he was crying. He smiled at her and took one of her hand and place a necklace in her hand " Keep that for me until we meet again" he said to her with a smile. She blinks her eyes as she watch him let go of her hand and walk away until he stop and turn around " Don't be sad, your mommy and my mommy both want us to be happy" he said before turning and running down the path of the sidewalk to a group of people getting into a black car. She sat there confused until she finally looks down at the necklace in her hand, it was a locket and inside was a silver ring. She didn't know why the little boy gave it to her but she held on to that necklace until today and never took it off.

Beep Beep

I grab the nearest pillow and place it on my head to mute out the sound of my alarm as I try really hard to fall back asleep. After few minutes of hearing the annoying beep of my alarm, it finally shut off. Bright light pours into her room, As she opens her eyes and slowly gets out of bed. As she lazily walks toward her bathroom, she trips on her guitar case and land on her face with a thud. " Ow, are you serious " she quietly said to herself. She lifts herself off the floor and then walks into the bathroom. She looked in the mirror and looking at her was a girl with very curly waist-length light brown hair, green eyes, pale skin and slim figure. Her grandparents always said she looked so much like her mother but as she stares in the mirror she just couldn't see it. Her mother was a beautiful woman with Long curly auburn hair, Bright Grey eyes, Tan skin and petite figure, she had a smile that can brighten a room. Sometimes she feels the only thing she got from her mom was her musical talents. She looked away from the mirror and then started getting ready for school.

She enters the kitchen to see her grandparents going about their everyday life , They smiled at her as she walked in " how did you sleep sunshine " her grandfather said looking up from the newspaper he was reading " i slept okay" i said with a smile and sat down at the table as i made myself a plate " what was that sound we heard before " her grandmother said putting a lot of pancakes in front of her " I trip on my guitar case and grandma, I don't need this many pancakes" I said taking some out and putting it on a separate plate " You are so skinny so you need to eat up and didn't I tell you to clean your room" she said with scowl. I avert my gaze from her and then look at my watch and then got up " I gotta go, don't wanna be late "I said picking up my bag from the floor " you barely ate " her grandmother said as I gave her a smile and blow her kiss and walk out the kitchen. I hear my grandfather laughter as my grandmother complains about my eating habits as I was walking out the door. I walk over to my black jeep and got in and put the key into the ignition and put my car in drive. The car ride to school was a short 10 minutes drive and I park in the first parking space I could find. I got my stuff and got out the car only to be tackled in a hug by my best friend Crystal " it senior year baby" she screamed in my ear as squeeze me in her hands jumping up and down. Crystal is my only friend in Greenwood high and we have been friends since the beginning of our freshman year, looking at crystal, you will wonder why a girl like her isn't popular, she easily one of the beautiful girls in school and had her fair share of dates. She was an Indian girl with long light brown hair, petite figure and brown eyes. sometimes she reminds me of my mom, like my mom she was always so cheerful, never letting anything get to her, she never lets me see her down even when I know she going through something, she was just a genuinely nice person. Maybe I took advantage of that sometimes. " why ain't you excited c'mon you promised me, you will try to make the most of our senior year this year, you said no more being miss invisible girl" she said pouting at me " I am excited see plus it been two weeks since school started " I said giving her a big smile. " I know but it still hasn't sunk in that it senior year," she said before we both laughed and walked into the school. Crystal and I didn't have any classes together so we can only hang out during lunch. After we said our goodbyes, I speed walk to my locker and then quickly put everything I don't need in my locker and closed it. I turned around only to smack right into someone causing my books to fall, I saw a hand reach down and pick up my books and handed it to me. I look up to see Cedric Smith, He used to be the most popular guy in the school, captain of the soccer team and every girl "dream guy " .... as if more like a nightmare to me. I never really understood what girls saw in him, sure he is good looking but is it really worth it to fall for someone who won't even remember your name the next day you spend a night with him, someone who brags to his friends about all the girls he has slept with. it just pathetic and desperate how girls change their looks and sometimes who they are to impress him. I don't think a guy like that is worth any girl losing who they are as a person in the hope he will notice them. If a guy is really worth your time then he will accept your flaws or not but we gotta be realistic here, this is the real world and in this world, it hard to find guys like that but last year, Cedric lost his popularity, when he had a bipolar episode and did some things that made him the most embarrassed guy to be friends with in school but the thing is he didn't know about his mental illness until one of the students notice the symptoms from her experience with her best friend and made sure he got the help, he needed and to top it off, it was found out, Cedric came from an extremely poor family, pictures of the place he lived at was plastered all over the school. I felt sorry for him but he didn't lose everything, he was still the soccer team captain, the only sad thing he just isn't respected by his teammate anymore and the only reason he still on the team is that he the best player on the team so they need him. I never thought he will become just as much as an outcast as me then again maybe not, I don't even know him." can you stop staring at me" he said giving a nervous cough as he drops the books in my hands and walks away from me. I watch his retreated figure before snapping back to reality and then practically running to homeroom. The day went by pretty fast and I spend my lunch period in the music room since Crystal had to retake a test she missed, when I finally made it to my next class, I saw only a few students already in the class in their seats talking to each other. I was walking straight to my seat when I all of sudden found myself on the floor. I look behind me to see I trip over someone backpack. Just to make matters worse, students were already coming into the classroom since the lunch bell indicating lunch was over already rang, I could hear as students laugh at me and even hear some of them whisper comments. I got up on my knees and started picking up my books " I am so sorry " I hear a girl start to say but I tune her out just as I hear people say stuff like " what a klutz " " she is such a loser " " hey look, she is on her knees just like I like them" with more laughter . I finally got up and then walk straight to my seat without looking at anybody. I sat down and place my bag on the seat next to me and then grab my headphones and put it on. I look up to see the students who were blocking the door laughing have already started to walk to their seat while still whispering little comments to their friends. I took out my phone from my pocket and then unlock and went to my music to play the first song on my music list.

I was writing in my songbook while listening to bullets by Data romance when someone came in front of me and took out my earphones from my ear. I snap my head up to see my teacher Mr miller in front of me "Maria please tell me what group are you in for the project " he said looking at me " what project..." I said knowing full well why I didn't know about it. " you see everyone knows about the project we just talk about five minutes ago" he said raising his voice as he talked causing the rest of the students to laugh ." Now am not going to repeat myself at your expense so you can ask your group member what the project about, This is a warning next time detention for two weeks " he said while walking away from me and back to the front of the class. I raise my hand and he raises his eyebrow at me " who is my group member " I said hoping it not with someone I can't work with and I have a lot of people who hate my guts in this class. " Cedric Smith, " he said reading from off a paper. I signed in irritation of the fact that I had to work with Cedric, the guy barely comes to class . I look around the class and lock eyes with Cedric who look at me with an emotionless expression. I roll my eyes and look away praying the bell will ring.

My last class of the day was uneventful and once the final bell rang, I was all packed up to leave, Today have been a pretty irritating day that I just couldn't stand to be in this building anymore. I put the last of the books I didn't need in my locker and then close it only to see Cedric standing there looking at me. " we have to work on the project, we only have a week to work on it " he said looking at me with his intense piercing blue eyes. " right, do you want to work at my place or yours" I said picking up my bag from off the floor " your place is fine " he said quickly and then started walking to the exit . When we got outside, I look around to only see my black jeep parked in the student parking lot. I walk toward my car and turn to Cedric who was standing next to the passenger side " Did you park somewhere else or something " I said opening the back seat and placing my backpack on the chair ." No, I ride the bus to school and home " he said putting his hands in his pants pocket " oh okay get in " I said walking around to the driver seat.

Cedric Pov

The drive to Maria place was the longest and quietest 10 minutes of my life and I wanted so badly to say something but I couldn't think of anything to say to her. Without me noticing Maria parked the car in front of a Yellow two-story house with many flowers decorating the front porch, I got out the car and follow Maria up the stairs. I look around my surrounding as Maria open the door. we were in a nice neighborhood, the type of neighborhood where parents will love to raise their kids, it was a very quiet area. you could tell nothing happen here. I hear someone clear their throat and snap out of my thoughts to realize I was standing outside at the door staring in space while Maria stare at me with a confuse expression. I walk into the house and look around to see pictures of art decorating most of the walls. As I walk further into the house, I found myself into the living room with an average amount of pictures of Maria and two people I guess is her grandparents on the walls and on the fireplace but there was also few pictures of Maria as a little girl with a woman who looks like an older version of Maria . " we can work in the kitchen but for now you can wait here while I go change " Maria said already near the stairs. I nodded and continue to look at the rest of the living room. there was very few furniture, basically only one coach and coffee table in front of it and a flat screen tv on the wall. The one thing in the room that caught my eyes the most was a grand piano in the far side of the room. I walk over to it and touch the keys before removing my hand, it must be nice to live in a place like this, it not huge like the house my old friends had but it was definitely bigger than mine. I looked up to see Maria looking at me " Do you play? " she said tilting her head to the side, she was wearing some black leggings and an oversize sweater and her long curly brown hair was let down from the bun it was in all day . " a little, I took lessons as a kid but was never really good " I said looking down . For some reason, he felt nervous around her like he had to watch his actions or words around her. I have never had that feeling before and I don't like it. The Cedric Smith I know won't act the way he was acting right now. plus the only reason I beg Mr. Miller to make me Maria partner was because of she the only one in class who doesn't seem to think he was such a psycho at least she didn't act like I was, I have always been fascinated by her. Since the beginning of high school, she  have kept to herself and never talked to anyone but her friend crystal. I can't help it, she intrigued me.
