Jack's point of view
I stuffed a piece of pancake into my mouth as I crammed my Physics books into my beat up school bag. I was late and most likely going to miss the bus – damn it! If I get another detention Mum’s going to go nuts and confiscate my laptop and TV remote again. I could not miss the Super Bowl AGAIN because I was two minutes late through the school doors. I dragged my fingers through my hair – I straightened it last night, thank goodness otherwise I would definitely be wearing a hat to school today.
I walked out of my bedroom before dashing back inside, running to my bathroom and brushing my teeth as fast as I could yet making sure that they were as white as I could get them in the time I had. As I walked past my bed I picked up the book and jacket I had forgotten to lift before. This time before stepping through the doorway of my bedroom I checked that I had everything I needed. As I was passing through the kitchen on the way to the front door my mum stopped me.
“Forgetting something, are we?” she asked.
“I’m going to miss my bus; can’t I just remember when I get home?” I exclaimed. I tried to move around her but somehow she still managed to stop me.
“You’re going to be very hungry by then though,” my mum put her hand out and dropped five dollars into my palm, “Whatever you don’t spend in the cafeteria you can use in the shop, okay?”
“You know what? You’re the best mum in the entire world,” I said as I leaned down and gave her a kiss on the cheek.
“I know. You better move yourself though or you definitely will miss that bus of yours,” she said as I started to move towards the front door. As soon as I was through it I ran as fast as I could to the bus stop only to find the bus leaving me far behind. I growled and punched the lamp post that stood beside me.
“Hey, what did that lamp post ever do to you?” I heard a voice call out. Oh no, I bet it’s someone from our school come to laugh at me missing the bus. Why does it always have to happen to me?
“Nothing,” I said angrily as I turned around to see who had been speaking to me. I got a shock, not only did I know this person but I never expected someone like them to talk to some kid like me.
“Doesn’t look like nothing, did you miss your bus?” Alex Gaskarth said to me. One of the popular kids, talking to me? Had the world turned topsy turvy? Yeah, he was in a lot of my classes and he seemed really nice but I’ll bet he doesn’t even remember my face.
“Yeah, looks like I’m walking,” I say looking sadly at his car, he was sitting in the back and his mum was in the drivers seat.
“No, wait, let me give you a lift – you'd be really late otherwise, hop in,” he smiled. This couldn’t be real, was it? I looked over at his mum to see what she was getting from all of this but she just smiled and waved for me to get in the car.
“T-thanks, you’ve saved me a lot of exercise,” this got a chuckle from Alex’s mum and a smile from Alex himself.
Right, so, this is on my LiveJournal account as well but I was convinced by my dear friend to upload to here as well so here it is. I really hope whoever is reading this enjoys it because on my LJ account I've been getting good feedback so far :)
It will get better - promise :D but until then you're just going to have to put up with this
Leave a comment after you've read it - it's nice to know I'm not just randomly spilling words into that huge void we call the internet. Constructive criticism is welcomed and tell me if there are any typos - I HATE typos :p
