I Was Wrong
c h a p t e r
As I wake up, I stretch out
my arms, yawn, rub my eyes, and smack my alarm clock
so it'll be quiet. I do my usual routine after I
get up out of my bed and walk to school. It is
kind of chilly, but my jacket keeps my a little warm.
I pass Sam's house and I heard yelling as
she opened the door to walk out of her large
"I don't care Mom! I can do whatever I want,
I'm 16!" Sam's screams over her shoulder
as she walks forward down her driveway. Her driveway
is pretty long, so they must be yelling pretty
loud if I could hear it.
"I'm your mother and I tell you what to
do!" She says slamming one of her two doors
in front of her house.
Sam sees me at the end of her driveway and
stops. She looks at me, breaths through her nose, and
walks quickly in front of me. Okay, ignore
me and all we've been through. I mean, Sam
and I have had fights, but we usually make up after
about 5 minutes.
I continue to walk until I reach the stairs in front
of the school. Ethan is waiting
on the fifth step.
"Hey," Ethan said getting up.
"Did you wait for me?" I ask. If he did
that would be so sweet. No one has ever done that for
me before, not even Sam.
"Who else?" He said. I gave him
a big smile and we walked into the school
together. I couldn't stop smiling. I'm
so glad Ethan and I are friends and I hate to say it,
but I'm starting to develop some feelings for
him. Does that mean I can't like Jason,
"Did you remember?"
"Remember what?" I asked putting my
backpack in my locker. I take out my Science folder
and binder and close my locker to face him.
"I'm coming over to help
with Science," My stomach started
to do cartwheels. I was so nervous, but I
can't wait. I'm so happy he is coming to my
"Of course I remembered," I lied and
he could tell.
"It's okay and anyway I don't need you
to go through any trouble just because
I'm coming over," Well, I cleaned the
house yesterday so too late. I laughed at myself
"What?" He said that so softly and
innocently, it was so adorable.
"I cleaned the house yesterday," I rolled
"Oh, well, don't go through any more
trouble. You don't need too," He was leaning
up against the locker that is next to mine.
"Do you have to go to your locker and get
everything you need?" I asked. I got so nervous
around him that I didn't know what else to
"Trying to get rid of me," He gives a half
of a smile and I shake my head representing that I
mean "no." "Well, okay, I'm
going," He said turing around.
"See you in Science," He waved. His was
facing away from me.
"Yep, see you in Science," I say and then
see Sam and Alyssa and some other girls walk up and
give me dirty looks.
