Hi there, my name is Amaryllis, or better known as Rilla to those who know me really well, and I’m sure that I’ll be Rilla to you by the end of my story as you will know me just as much as I know myself. I’m a 17 year old teenager, mousey brown hair and green eye’s, I’m 5 foot 4 inches and an only child. I live in a modest 4 bedroom 2 story house with my mum, my dad passes away when I was three years old so I have no recollection of him whatsoever but I hear that he was a great man. It wasn’t until recently that there was a guy in my life.
I’m in love with a vampire!!! He wasn’t always a vampire. He use to be just another boy at school that I never thought twice about. To be honest I never even knew who he was. But he always knew me. It wasn’t until ‘the change’ that I or anybody else for that matter started to notice him.
“Hey Amaryllis”, said my best friend knowing that I hate being called by my full name. “Have you seen the new boy yet?”
“Ummm... no Jesse I can’t say I have, mind you I got here an hour ago to finish my creative writing story for first period, so he probably wasn’t here yet.... I can’t believe there is a new boy here!”
“Yeah there is defiantly a new guy, I saw him out front just now, and I have to tell you he is smokin’ hot,” smirked Jesse. “Come on lets go introduce ourselves to him.”
“You go ahead, I really need to go to the bathroom before class.”
“AMARYLLIS, don’t you lie to me! Stop being shy and come and meet him with me. I know you don’t like meeting new people but trust me on this, you’ll love him!”
By the time Jesse had finished her sentence I was already running down the corridor of Bazelton high. (Yes someone named a small average high school Bazelton, who in their right mind would call a school that! Mind you if you mentioned that to the principle he’d give you a two hour lecture about the school’s founder and how important it is for us to thank him for the school we have now, trust me you don’t want to know how I found out).
As I ran I called out over my shoulder “Jesse, I’m so sorry, I just can’t face up to my fear.”
“You owe me Rilla!”
“I’ll buy you lunch!” With that I had reached the girls bathroom and dashed in side, I’ll hide out here until it’s time for first period. Or so I thought.
“Oh my god! Screeched the first girl, have you seen that hottie of a guy out the front, I hear he’s the new kid, mind you he is so good looking he could almost be a teacher!”
“Ahhh... I know isn’t he just the best looking guy ever!”
“I wanna marry him!” stated the third voice.
“Like you’d have a chance Brittany.”
“I would have more of a chance than you Amanda!”
I came into the bathroom to get away from the talk of the ‘new guy’ but yet here I am again stuck listening to the banter of how hot he is. From the popular girls too. I wish they would just go away so I could mope in piece. Don’t ask me why but being introduced to new people had me 10 times more nervous than the average person. Meeting someone new terrifies me and if he is hot that would make it even worse.
When I met Jesse back in freshman year I made the biggest fool of myself and all she did was come up to me and introduce herself, I ended up spitting my drink everywhere like she had scared me, which in a way I guess she had. I ran off to the bathrooms like I have now and am hiding out! Mind you back then she came and found me and told me it’s ok and helped me clean myself up and has been by my side since, well except for when there is a hot guy around. I’m now in my senior year and I’m still running away from the thought of meeting new people! Jesse has lots of friends as well as me but still considers me her best friend. I’m not so sure anymore as she has been hanging out with other people more than me now, I think that my fear is finally driving us apart, these days I spend most of my time either in the bathrooms or the library, most of the time it’s the later.
