The door bell rings "I got it"; I screamed from my bedroom trying to rush and put on my new outfit that I got from Hollister, a white shredded tight leg jeans and a pink bishop sleeve jacket that shows off my belly ring, and some Alex print wedge with the chain around the ankle. I admired myself in the mirror my long black hair, light skin tone, almond shape eyes, full lips. Full breast and hips compliment my thick curves. That’s what I liked about myself I was slim but not to skinny and thick but not fat. I grab my satchel hand bag off my bed, closed my room door and stormed down stairs. "CRAP!" I yelled when I hit my toe on the coat rack. "Peace out girl", I said to my stepmom Lauren who was sitting in the kitchen drinking a cup of coffee.
"Finally!" Aerie said when she saw me open the door "What was you doing up in there making the damn clothes?"
"Girl please, you know you have to dress to impress for senior year, ok......ay."
"Whatever Autumn, you better let's go before we miss the bus and we be late on the first day of school." As I walk slowly behind her putting on my accessories, I looked her over. This year we promised we were going to “act” like normal teenager and not all stuck up like we did from the 5 grade, she told me she wanted to start catching the bus like the “normals”. I was up to try anything.
"Girl I guess you think you look cute with those black jeggings on."
"He-he", she gave me a fake laugh while pointing at her smile "You got joke huh?"
"You know I'm just playing........Oh shoots, were you been this summer and can't take a joke no more."
We had walked passed two corners to get to the bus stop; we stood and waited for the bus for two minutes. Whiles we was waiting sneaky Neekie approached us, Neekie is them kind of girls that take your boyfriend and act like it's not a problem at all.
"What y’all sayin?" she asked in this ghetto accent
"Nothing at all" I answered her question
"So where you been this summer? Because I been to your house couple times and a woman say you aint home" she asked. I hate lying, but she know me and her don't talk at all, so why she was at my house again?
"I-I-I-I-I probably was out of town" I said coming up with an excuse
"Aw okay, well let me go ova here so I could talk to that boy, bye" she waved (see what I told you?)
"Which boy is she going to talk to, I hope it's not" Aerie said then stopped
"It is" I replied, Neekie walked over there to talk to Aerie's boyfriend. (See what I told you?) Aerie was mad and the bus was arriving anyway, so she is going to get on his case right now. I got on the bus and followed Aerie to the back where her boyfriend was sitting and in front of Aerie was Neekie, she headed straight for the seat next to Aerie's boyfriend, when Aerie bumped her and made her fall right into the seat at the back.
“Oops! Sorry did I do that?” she asked sarcastically and sat down next to her boyfriend Cal and I sat across from her in the seat with this dude name BJ. On the ride to school all I could hear was Aerie grilling Cal about Neekie and all the other girls that throw their selves at him. That's why I don't have a boyfriend because of stuff like that. When we arrive to school and got off the bus I saw all kinds of new cute boys, then I saw Tammy and Shareese the finishing touch on the cake of pure beauty and chic.
"Oh no" Reesie said to Tammy "She just didn't roll up in this school with that outfit on"
"Oh yes she did girl", Tammy replied "Where does she think she going? To the club?"
"Stop the hating and start celebrating," I exclaimed "Did yall see all these new fine boys in this school this year?"
"Yeah girl and Reesie already hooked up with one of them" Tammy said
"What you expected me to do, if this boy talking to me and his Mohawk so attractive?" she asked.
"His Mohawk?" we all said while looking at her crazy
As soon as I was about to say something the bell rings and everyone went into the building. They post homeroom numbers on the wall to direct us on where to go and what number were our lockers. My homeroom teacher was Mr. Joe Henson and I had the locker next to the main entrance upstairs window. I went to my class and sat in one of the tables in the back. As I text Aerie a shadow came over me, when I look up there was a goddess standing before me, (5ft 11), shoulder length braids, caramel skin, brown eyes and wait for it wait for it (he smiles) yes no grills so that probably means he’s not one of those gangsta types.
