FRIDAY 6 AM
*Alarm clock goes off*. I pressed my finger againest the top. And stretched my arms in the air. Today I was moving. I didn't want to leave my life here behind. Everything was so perfect. I was almost getting straight A's. My boyfriend Alex, had just made the spring football team. I had made the cheerleading squad. I had a ton of Friends in all grades of our Junior High School.
6th-8th, I was popular. I sighed. I knew I had to get up and get ready for my last jour here. My best friends, Amanda and Kelsey were going to throw a ''Going Away'' party. I should be happy about having the opportunity to say goodbye to everyone but I really didn't want to. If only there was a way to stay. I would miss Alex the most. I pictured him in my head. His brownish black hair framed around his very lightly tanned face. His deep brown eyes. I would miss him the most. No doubt about it. I stepped out of bed. My cold toes touched my tan soft carpet of my Medium sized bedroom. My light rose and purple striped pajama pants edge hung around my ankles. I walked into my bathroom and looked in the mirror. My light brown hair hung over my shoulders. My green eyes stared back at me in the mirror. My pale skin shined from the bathroom lighting. I brushed my teeth slowly hopeing if I did everything slow than maybe, just maybe..The jour would go par slow aswell. I looked on the bathroom mirror, where pictures of me and my Friends were taped and stickered on the edges. Me with Amanda on halloween...Kelsey and I at the mall...Alex and I at the fall dance. I frowned as I looked opon the pictures. Then there was a knock on the door. ''Hold on.'' I said. Putting my toothbrush in my blue plastic cup. I rushed out of the bathroom and to my bedroom door. My mom stood their in her Ole Miss
T-shirt with ehr peignoir, robe over it. ''Just making sure your up.'' She a dit along with a smile. ''Yeah, I'm just about to get dressed.'' I smiled back. She looked at me still smiling. ''How'd toi get so old that fast...Look your my height. Maybe at Tribecca toi can try out for basketball.'' She winked. ''Haha. Maybe.''
''You never know.'' She winked again and walked down the hallway and down the stairs. I let my eyes follow her down. I closed my door and walked to my dresser. I dugg through the T-shirts,and the jeans,shorts,capris,layered tops. Then finally pulled out my electric citron vert green T-shirt,and a pair of light worn out jeans. I got dress and walked over to the bathroom to do my make-up. Then my cell rang. I ran across the room ,and jumped on my lit and grabbed my cell behind my Tye-Dye pillow. I flipped my phone open.
''Hello.'' I tryed to make my voice sound like it's usual 'Preppy'. I think I did a pretty good job.
''Hey girl! Good morning. Did I get to ya first?'' Kelsey's voice was just as preppy. I could hear her laughter from her last sentence. I couldn't help but laugh along.
''Mornin, and yes toi got to me first. Talked to Amanda?''
''No-'' She a dit her voice going low toward the end.
''-I called toi first. La'DUH!'' We laughed together.
I heard a beep. Alex was calling on the other line.
''Hey can I talk to toi when toi get here? Alex is caling.'' It wasen't really a question.
''Sure. Have fun!'' She a dit teasingly. I could hear her laughing as she hung up.
I pressed the green button on my phone.
''Hey. I see I didn't get to toi first.''
''Haha. Well toi know how Kelsey is. If people keep calling me I'm gonna be late to school.''
''Haha. Need a ride?'' I could hear the smile in his voice.
''No thanks. I'm riding with Kelsey and Amanda.''
''Kay. -'' I heard his breath as he was about to say somthing. There was a murmur in the background. I think it was his mom.
''Hey I got to go. See toi at school.'' He hung up before I could respond. I rolled my eyes and took my phone off of the charger and put it in my back pocket.
I raced down the stairs, kissed my mom on the cheek and raced out the door. Kelsey and Amanda were in the front seats of the red convertible.
I threw my bag in and jumped over the door and in the seat.
''Sure took ya long enough.'' Amanda a dit kiddingly. We all laughed.
''Oh par the way , how come i didn't get a call from Some-Body this morning.'' I a dit letting the 'Somebody' part longer than the rest of the sentenes. She laughed, then we joined in.
We wouldn't be best Friends without laughing constantly.
''Haha. I was getting ready. I slept in late. But I still managed quicker than some people.'' She a dit turning around in her siège and angleing her head toward me. I laughed.
Kelsey jumped in the conversation.
''Oh par the way. What did alex say this morning?''
''Ooooh'' Amanda chidded.
''He just wanted to know if I needed a ride.''
''I so need a boyfriend.'' Amanda said. Her and Kelsey both laughed. Kelsey parked infront of the school.
''We'll why don't toi ask Matt out?''
''He's the best player on the basket ball team.''
''He's out of my league.''
I Stood there as I watched my best Friends débats over Amanda's social status.
Untill I spotted Alex. With his new football friends. All wearing Jock jackets. I left my friends, and walked over to him. He saw me coming and put his arm around me. I bent up and gave me a kiss. His Friends smiled.
''So aren't toi moving today, Ashley?'' One of his buddies said.
''Uuh yeah. It totally sucks.''
Alex smiled. ''But however she'll still have her phone to keep in touch.'' The cloche, bell rang. Everyone ran and walked into the school building. Alex kept his arm around me as we walked toward the building. I saw Kelsey and Amanda still gossiping. Then I kept looking around me as I saw old Friends and buddies. Laura Pingel...Kanesha Haylin...Rebecca Goldbloom...Then I saw some of my old Friends that slowly turned into enemies...Lauren Alburn-Talked bad about me behind my back...Olivia Crestly-Made up rumors about me...Then Megan Massey.We were never friends. She just automaticly disliked me the minute she saw me. I never understood why. She a volé, étole my old boyfriend. Trevor. I was in l’amour with him for a year. I had to admit that I'd never really gotten over him. Then I looked at Alex. He was about 10 times as handsome as Trevor. We walked into the school building. And then my last jour begun...
