Thump Thump Thump.
The sound of my feet on a beautiful new mourning, with birds singing their cheery songs, the early morning sun blinding my eyes and the fresh smell of a new day coming who wouldn't be happy right?
I wasn't puffing at all. It was an easy jog compared to the one back home.
That's right, back in Australia. I moved here to San Fran, America, to go to the prestigious Bormount sports High School.
I got the acceptance letter a day after the "incident" and I immediately accepted, knowing that I had to get away from the mess that my life was.
So here I am, after just a month since I got the letter. Sunny San Francisco.
I was enjoying an early morning run and getting back into fitness before trials start for soccer. What's even more exciting is that I'll be trying out for the 17's boy's team! I'll be the first girl ever to be aloud.
It's one of the biggest steps the school has taken to becoming a less "sexist" school.
The trial is in 3 days, the girl's team is tomorrow, so I'm really excited!
After stopping for a moment I found that I was on a little lost, overgrown track. Being the inquisitive girl I am, I had to investigate. Going down the wet forest path, I heard water rushing down something.
Was there a waterfall near here?
Just when I had that thought, I came out onto a large meadow, and just as I had guessed there was a beautiful, immaculate fresh water waterfall flowing in the early spring sunshine.
It was beautiful! And it wouldn't be complete without a beautiful boy, slowing coming out of the water, whipping his hair back and forwards as it glistened in the sun. How cliche...
He was now coming out of the water and he's coming this way. Oh poopie!
If I can't see him, he can't see me! If I can't see him, he...
"hello"? His husky American voice brought me out of my internal ranting, but I still didn't acknowledge him. Through my fingers I could see him giving me a weird/hot look.
I also saw him reaching up to take my hands away from my face, but by the time I realised what was happening, it was too late, my face was already exposed to his tan, strong jawed goodness.
"Are you okay"? He asked me, his face almost a little scared because of my reaction to him.
"Yeah...Um... the sun was just too bright!" I practically screamed at him when I initially thought of an excuse. I realised that I was acting like I was nervous and I immediately put on my flat 'nobody can tell what I'm really feeling' face.
His only answer was "yeah it's pretty hot". And then he did something stupid! "Hi, I'm Tai Webb". He put on a sexy smirk that knew would be irristable... if I didn't hate boys.
I put on a fake girly voice "Hi, I'm Willow Pekoe". Apparently, he could tell that I was putting on a fake voice because he went from all smiles to all frowns.
And what an adorable one he had too.
Stop thinking about how cute he is Willow!
Whilst having another internal battle, I hadn't noticed that Tai had stepped closer to me.
But I soon did.
Up this close you could notice that he had a light dusting of freckles of his perfect nose. He had dirty blonde hair, in one of those short but not short hair cuts. His tan shows that he spends a lot of time outdoors, but not all his time. And his eyes, his best feature because they showed who he truly was, were blue, like a blue when a storm is crossing over the ocean.
