So here I am. My whole life buillding up to this moment, 14 years of education and examinations for this moment. The moment where you look around you’re own room and its never felt so empty... purely because of all my belonging are packed up into to cardboard boxes and may aswell have been shipped to Narnia. How rude, I forgot to tell you who I am. My names Rachel - thats right ‘el’ not ‘ael’ or ‘eal’. So much for parents choosing the easier way of spelling a name so they choose a name with three potential ways of spelling it. I appear to have gone of tangent. I’m 18 years old and about to in my fathers choice of words ‘better my life’ or ‘broaden my horizons’ but in actual fact Im just of to University and to spend another 3 or more years in education as if 14 wasnt enough. I have medium length dark brown hair, with Hazel eyes and i’m short. Unbearably short as in ‘5 ft and a fag paper’ short.
After taken one last look at my room or through those teenage years my ‘refuge’ and taking it all I carry the last of my stuff down to load into my fathers car. I dont see why everyone had showed up to see me off chances are I wont like it and be back home before the semester ended. After saying my farewells and getting Hugs from my few but closest friends one being Heidi although not knowing her as long as my other friends we had immediately clicked after discovering a love of the same band ‘One Direction’ she had her own packaged loaded into the same car. It could have been worse i could have been headign off to university on my own. But i’m I had Heidi with me and she never ceases to make find humour in the dark times. We were both entering this new chapter of our lives and although closing the book on the previous its reasuring to know i wasnt entering this chapter on my own. ‘So what song first aye wifey?’ I hear Heidi ask me after flashign her Ipod in my direction already set to the one direction playlist ‘surprise me Bubsy’ I reply with smile and listen to the song of her choice being ‘Forever Young’ the song they didnt have the chance to play live on the X-Factor. It didnt seem like a bad start in a car with one of my closest mates and fan-girling over how hot our boys sounded the whole journey.
Before I knew it the car ride came to stop and after looking around i realised that we had now ‘reached our destination’ as the sat nav had stated. This left Heidi and I gawking at our surroundings in sheer astonishment. ‘Oh wow’ Heidi piped up ‘yeah, Wow’ I replied and we both raced to the boot of our ride to grab our bags and luggage and all excited about getting settled in. ‘Now girls, I’ll go fetch your schedual and housing accomodation plans and we shall get you settled in’ my father said easing the sureal atmosphere clouding me and heid as we nooded to him. Before I knew it Heidi was already leant against they car looking (although maybe an understatment it was more like Examining) the mass of students and people passing by ‘wow hes hot’ looking at one guy and by the time i look up to see where shes looking she had her eye on another ‘Oh gosh!, no now he is Hoooott’ this made me laugh amongst myself ‘you alright there bunny?’ heidi then looks over at me a questioning look amongst her face ‘Bunny?’ ‘Yeah, Bunny as in Bunny boiler – i can guarantee the majority of these are taken or even more realsticly ‘Gay’ Heidi then trygin to hide her laughter with a fake Gasp ‘How could you!... its okay to look but not touch’ i shake my head at this and laugh it off to find my Dad coming back with papers. ‘Here we have your plans your in this apartment and here is your key and here is your scheduals’ he says handing over both our keys, map and scheduals. We then follow my dad who was carrygin the bulk of our belongings to our apartment. Heidi had ran past me up the steps wantign to be the first to use her key but some how she had stumbled on the last step and near enough face planted the door. After walking up to her and helping her up these guys had come out of the apartment next to ours three of them all seemingly to have pretty faces one had medium length blonde hair pulled back into a pony tail and he had the most perfect of faces with a slight stubble and he certainly looked like a student. The other two however had the whole layered fringe hair styles both brunette and seemingly identicle however i couldnt make out their faces as i had my eyes drawn to the blonde one a sight of Pure perfection. Heidi had perked up making her come back from the face plant ‘Sorry about that’ and nudging me in the side ‘were new here’ i then shake my head and feel my cheeks going red after realising i had been gawking. ‘yeah sorry about that’ I say modestly. One of the brunette boys come over to the fence seperating us ‘its okay’ he said smilign to be joined by the blonde haired guy ‘first years we take it us too’ I cant help but look up to smile his voice was merely amazing so subtle and smoothe ‘My names Alex’ he says reachign his hand over the fence ‘and these are both Jayden and Kyle’ both brunetes come over and wave. ‘I’m Rachel and this is Heidi’ I answer reaching back and shaking Alex’s hand and waving at the other two ‘It was nice too meet you’ says Alex ‘Looks like were neighbours’ at this point jonathon the taller of the two brunettes pipes up ‘sorry we really bust be going, we forgot to grab our scheduals’ and with this they walk of to the main building and the alex takes one look back. Heid then opens the door and we both get our belongings inside and my dad helps up un pack and sees us off giving us both a hug. ‘So..’ heidi says ‘I saw that earlier’ I then try fiddlign with anything ‘saw what?’ she the squeals at me ‘You know what Rachel, the whole thing with Alex.. you likee him!’ at this i drop what ever i had in my hand which luckily only happened to be a booklet for the university ‘I do nott, he was good looking though’ I reply sheepishly she scoffs at me ‘of course I mean this is just unacceptable i mean he could be taken or worse gay’ she answers at me mockingly and turns away to her room and begins to unload her clothes leaving me to get to whatever so i return to my room and do the same thinking. I mean i cant like Alex i’ve seen him once for 5 minutes and he has amazingly pretty face and soothingest of voices and the most amazing chocolatey brown eyes but this is ridiculous i think to myself. Maybe university might not be as bad I had originally thought.
