It all started when I was in High School in 12th Grade and I was at the top of my class I felt that there would be nothing I would need not even a boyfriend. As I was in my last year at school my friends approached me and asked who was going to be my date for prom I told them that,
“I’m going alone; I have no need for a date.” As I walked to my car my best friend Sally came up to me and asked if she could have a ride home and that she had something that she wanted to tell me, so I told her
“Ok I got to hear what’s so important that you have to tell me,” I said with curiosity in my eyes, all she could tell me was
“Get in and I’ll explain along the way.” As we drove along I asked
“So what is it, come on, this has to be good?” as I said with excitement in my voice, “Well Ashley, Peter asked me to be his girlfriend and to be his date at prom” As she said with tears of joy.
I was happy for her but at the same time I was sad. So I told her
“That’s great Sally.” Then she said
“Oh yea Ashley um well there’s no boys left to match with for the prom”, in that moment I felt light- headed as the car swerved Sally shouted
“ASHLEY!!!!” then I snapped out of it and started to drive normal. While I drove her home she told me all about what she’s going to wear and stuff. On my home from dropping her off I was thinking about a lot things like why didn’t she asked what was wrong so I threw it one side, in that moment something hit my roof, I let out a big gasp then out of nowhere a boy jumped on my car right at that moment I looked in to his strange but amusing brownish-red eyes it was an odd combination for an eye colour but they looked so beautiful like diamonds. I got out and asked him if he was ok he just got up like if nothing had happened, and said
“I’m fine, I’m sorry to scare you” oh the sound of his voice sounded so soothing. So I asked for his name and he looked away with sadness in his eyes then I asked “what’s wrong?” and he said
“Nothing” with a low tone then suddenly a loud weird howling noise started, I began to look all around thinking what in world is that but by the time looked round to him he was gone. As I got back into the car I couldn’t help but wonder where that guy had gone and if he was ok, I felt really bad for hitting him and not taking him to the hospital to get checked out.
As I arrived home, I pulled into the drive way and was walking to the house as I looked at the other house I realised that someone had bought it I was looking forward to having a new neighbour, when I got inside my mum called me
“Ashley come into the living room and meet our new neighbours sweetie,” of all the things that she had to call me she had to call me that.
“Good evening everyone” as I said while entering the room without even looking to see who was in the room, as I looked around at the people in front of me I recognise the boy from earlier, I was in a bit of a shock to see him there
“Honey this is the Copperfield family, this is their son Kent, and their daughter Mary, this is their dad Harry and mother Jackie” after telling me everyone, she then said with gladness
“This is my lovely daughter Ashley.” I was too shy to say anything really all I could say was,
“Hi it’s nice to meet you”. I was still in shock as I kept staring at him then I realized something changed on him, his eyes were green, I started to think back at the incident his eyes were brownish-red, I told myself silently,
“I swear they were brownish-red”.
“Well thank you, you have a very lovely house Miss. Jefferson” said Mrs. Copperfield. My mom was smiling, grinning ear to ear with all teeth showing as if she won the lottery it’s been a long time I saw her smiled like that but then I thought to myself oh boy this is not going to be good. I started to remember when we had neighbours it was a catastrophe. Then my mom said with a little giggle in her voice
“Now Ashley, dear, we’re having the Copperfield family for dinner.” I think to myself
“NOOOOOOOOOOOO!! But on the other hand maybe it’s not a bad idea; I can get some information from the mysterious Kent.” As I went into the kitchen to help with the final preparations I turned to my mum and asked her
