Chapter One - Moving
To A New School
I woke up this morning and looked
at the clock, 7:00 AM. Perfect. I had to be at school by 8, but
I had some spare time to get ready for my first day so I was
I got up and brushed out my long
curly brown hair, it wasn't really brown, but when it
was in the sun it shimmerd a blondish gold colour.
Then i decided to wash my face
and apply a bit of makeup. I put on a little bit of black
eyeliner and blended it out so I didn't look too
'Rachel! Are you almost ready for
school?' My mother called to me from the kitchen.
I put down my things and peeked
out of the bedroom door, 'Yeah, I just 'gotta get dressed!' I
called back and smiled.
When I opened my closet, I
sighed. When we moved I lost alot of my clothes on the way over
to WA. I once lived in Sydney but moved because my parents
decided to split up.
I put on a pair of skinny jeans
that hugged my figure perfectly and put on a normal blue
t-shirt. I walked over to the mirror and stared at my
appearance, I wasn't pretty, but I wasn't ugly either. I
honestly didn't care about what I looked like, but today was my
first day and I know that kids these days judge you on first
I skipped down the hallway of our
house and grabbed some breakfast and made a sandwich for lunch
'Are you excited?' My mother
I looked down at my food and
shrugged, 'I guess,'
'Now, now, you'll make lots of
friends, try and fit in. If you are having a hard time just
stay low and stay out of trouble,' My mother replied while
studying my face.
I thought for a second.. Her
advice seemed legit, 'Okay,' I agreed.
Once I got to school, it was very
much like my old school... Loud and messy. Typical.
I was 16 and have been through
highschool before so I wasn't too scared.
When I entered the school I
looked around for some friendly faces, I saw none.
I saw the common nerds, jocks,
loners and sluts. It was so familar, I laughed silently to
I never really fitted in, I guess
I'd be a 'nerd' because I take my school work seriously and
only have a few friends, like two or three.
'Hi there!' I heard a girl say to
I looked up and saw a beautiful
girl stand before me, she hair curly red-ish hair and big green
'Hey,' I tried to smile. She
grabbed a peice of paper out of her pocket and handed it to
'You must be new here, right?'
She asked. I nodded.
'This is your time table, my name
is Lilly, feel free to ask me any questions. Consider me your
friend, I love to help people,' she smiled.
I suddenly looked up from my
paper and felt very happy, 'Thanks sooo much, I was really
nervous about meeting new people, but you seem pretty nice,' I
'No problems, you and me and in
most classes together, so let me show you around,' she said
again with her perfect little smile.
She continued the morning by
showing me where everything is, but then she introduced me to
'This is Nick, he's in some of
your classes aswel,' she said while pointing to Nick.
I studied his face.. Pure
perfection is the first word that came to my mind.
He had black hair that was almost
dead straight, it feel just over his eye brows and showed off
his perfect green eyes. Then he had a beautiful small nose that
was in the cutest shape ever. His lips were tiny but adorable
and he smiled brightly while looking at me.
'Hey, nice to meet you,' He said
to me. 'Hiya, I'm Rachel,' I smiled.
*RINNNG* The bell went.
'Well, I gotta go to class,
Rachel you better go with Nick, he's in your maths class,' she
said and then left.
'Okay, come with me, I'll look
after 'ya,' He joked. I giggled, 'Alrighty,' I agreed.
As the day went on, I swear I
could feel Nick staring at me, every time I'd look at him, he'd
always look away. It made me laugh a little bit.
Gosh, he was so cute.
When it was lunch I walked into
the lunch room and looked around, I had no idea where to
'Hey, new girl!' Some girly voice
called, I looked across to a very classy looking girl.
She had a mini skirt on an a
tight boob tube showing off her cleavage. I cringed at this
'Me?' I asked while staring at
'Yes you!' she said rudely, 'I
saw the way Nick and you were looking at eachother, and if you
touch him, 'gurl you better look out,' she said while giving me
a feirce look. I look at her stunned, what the fuck was her
problem? I asked myself.
'Alrighty then, love,' I said
sarcastically and walked off, she didn't bother me at all.
Another common slut, I sighed.
'Rachel! over here!' I heard a
familar voice call, it was Lilly!
I walked over to her and Nick and
sat down, 'Hey,'
'What did Jessica say to you?'
Lilly asked while looking corncered.
'Nothing, who is she?' I lied
while picking up my sandwich and taking a bite.
'The school hoe,' she
I laughed at that comment and
looked up at Nick, he was staring at me.
'Yeah, she's totaly crazy,' Nick
added, 'She's my ex, god she gets jealours so damn easily, I
had to end it with that bitch,' He laughed.
I giggled at him and he smiled
back at me, 'Gosh you two get a room,' Lilly poked her tounge
out at us.
I looked away from him and
returned my attention back to my food, I wasn't that hungry
'I got to go, my friend needs me
for a second,' Lilly said while getting up, 'I'll see you after
school Rach?' She asked me.
I felt happy, I loved being
called Rach for some reason, 'Umm, sure. Add me on Facebook or
something,' I agreed.
When Lilly left, me and Nick sat
there together, chatting away. He was so easy to talk
'So where you scared about coming
to a new school?' He asked.
'Hmm.. No,' I replied while
shaking my head. 'Yeah right!' he laughed, 'Seriously were
I paused for a second, 'Alright,
yeah a little bit, I'm not usally super popular,' I confessed
while throwing my mess away in the bin.
'Did you have alot of boyfriends
at your old school?' He asked suddenly.
I looked up surprised, why would
'Umm..,' I stared down. I was a
virgin still and have only kissed one boy.
'Sorry, I'm just wondering,' he
'No, I don't usally slut around
with alot of guys,' I laughed.
He smiled, I think he enjoyed my
'That's good, maybe you and me
will get along then, I don't like sluts, and this school has
alot of them,' He replied and sighed while looking towards
I looked at her too, she was
sitting there with her arm around one of her friends while they
did a stupid looking pout, she held out her camera in front of
her and took a picture.
'Oh 'mah gosh, this one is going
on 'da Facebook!' She giggled and showed her friend.
'Yah, we look totaly hot,' her
*RINNNNNNNG* The bell
'I better get to class, see you
later,' I said while waving to Nick.
'Alright, I'll add you on
Facebook and we can chat?' He smiled,
I then realized he was actualy
asking a question, 'Umm, sure!!' I agreed.
The day dragged on, but the
teachers seemed to like me so I didn't complain.
The work was pretty easy which
put me in a good mood.
When I heard the finale bell go,
I packed up my stuff and got ready to walk home
I saw Lilly and waved goodbye to
her, she just smiled and yelled, 'See you later, Rach!'
A couple of weeks passed and I
continued to hang out with Nick and Lilly at school, I advoided
Jessica because I knew she was a freaking moron.
It was Sunday afternoon and I
decided to hang out with Lilly at a milk bar.
'Two chocolate sundays, please,'
Lilly said to our waitress.
The waitress nodded and walked
'So, how are you?' I asked,
trying to make small talk.
'Good, good..,' she said while
looking down towards the table. I knew she was hiding
'What?' I asked.
'I know something you don't
know!' She teased and laughed.
Me and her were pretty close,
these couple of weeks were super fun, me and Lilly were like
'What, what is it?' I asked. I
hated surprised and secrets. I guess I was kind of
'I think Nick likes you,' she
finally confessed. I felt my heart leap from my chest, I was so
'Really!?' I asked looking more
surprised then ever.
'Yep, he always asks about you,
gosh he's obsessed,' She said.
We contined our little lunch date
thing and I paid the waitress.
Lilly looked up to me, 'Thanks
for paying,' she said happily.
'No problem, text me later,' I
She drove off with her older
sister and I walked home. I couldn't wait until tomorrow, I
didn't know if I should confess my feelings to Nick.
I got to my room and kicked of my
shoes, as I waited for my computer to turn on I brushed my hair
again, it was a totaly mess.
When it finally loaded, I logged
onto Facebook I noticed something,
"Nick Mathews is now in a
relationship with Jessica Clark"
What the fuck? I thought he hated
