Author's Note: Hey y'all! So this is my first story on WattPad, and I would really appreciate constructive criticism and general feedback. I don't have this copyrighted, but I hope that you would treat if as if it were copyrighted and not claim it as your own work--not that you would do that anyway...right? Just as a little 'warning,' I'm not going to get into kinky details 99.9% of the time I write. I think fictional characters deserve just as much privacy as we do...don't you agree? :P haha, anyways... thanks for taking the time to read this story! :D ~ThoughtsAnonymous
P.S. That is Leila ------> Over there ------> On the side ------>
"I guess that's the curse of reality: there's no perfect formula like there is in movies. All there is is chaos, the unknown, and the possibly mythical existence of a thing called love."
Chapter One: The Gilded Life
Leila sighed as she stared out of the window at the gray skies outside, all the while listening to her class debate on whether or not one had to believe something to know it. The topic was intriguing, but once Leila had stated her opinion, she felt the reason to continue discussing was pointless. Unfortunately the classmates she had known since kindergarten felt otherwise, and so there was Leila, bored out of her mind and tired of hearing the same opinions repeated over and over again.
As she tuned out the droning conversation, she lazily observed the cars zipping by the school and thought of crazy, unimportant theories and ideas behind life. Before she became too engrossed however, the bell rang to signal the end of the day.
Thankful that the monotonous school day was finally over, Leila sprang out of her seat and practically sprinted to her locker to meet her boyfriend Zack. She weaved impatiently through the sea of sheeple as she tried to get to the west wing of the large public school as quickly as possible. Finally reaching her locker, she spun the combination in hastily and grabbed her notebook for FST. For the first time in a very long while, the only homework she had was graphing trigonometric functions, a rare occurence which left her some time to spend with her boyfriend over the weekend.
Just as Leila slung her messenger bag over her shoulder, two large, warm hands wrapped themselves around her waist. Smiling, she turned to see her tall, toned, and handsome boyfriend looking down at her with a mischievous smirk on his face.
"Hey there beautiful," Zack said, placing a quick kiss on Leila's lips. Leila smiled up at him and kissed him back, but in the back of her mind she cringed slightly at his compliment. Being a late bloomer had its setbacks, and self-confidence was one of them. Up until age fifteen, she had been the little human dumpling nerd child who was always dreaming about the handsome and popular boy in her biology class. However, the summer before tenth grade, Leila grew three inches and joined the equestrian team that was started at the barn not five miles from her suburban house in Rosetown Springs. Now she had perfect curves and the outer confidence of someone who owned a multi-billion dollar corporation.
"Hey there yourself," she said as she reached for one of the hands he had around her waist. They started walking down the hallway toward the buses, and Leila spoke up again: "So I was thinking- I have almost no homework tonight, and my parents are gone for the next two days..." At this point in the conversation, they were already outside of the huge school and Zack was giving Leila a knowingly suggestive look. "...do you maybe want to come with me and go to the bowling alley?"
Zack's jaw slackened in surprise and Leila secretly laughed inwardly. She was just teasing him, but after seeing his reaction she decided to draw out the suspense a little bit.
Zack shifted on his feet uncomfortably. "Are you joking? I thought we were going to have some...fun... this weekend." He drew her waist closer to his suggestively, and quirked his eyebrow seductively. His dark blue eyes stared into hers as her willed her to say that she was just teasing him. She pushed him away playfully and a devious gleam shone in her eyes.
"Bowling is fun, silly!" she said, all the while inwardly bubbling up with laughter at how evil she was being to the poor boy. Just as she said that, the first of buses in the massive line started their engines, and so she poked Zack in the side and winked. "Come on, let's catch our bus."
