It was Wednesday morning as I rolled out of bed on time today. I got dressed into ripped jeans and a Nirvana tank top, then I put a flannel over it. I put my hair up into a ponytail. Finally I out on white boots. I went out into the kitchen and my parents were sitting at the table.

"Morning." my mum said.

"Morning." I said, as I went into the fridge and grabbed out a the orange juice. I poured myself a glass.

"Dad can you drive me to school today I think Tate is driving with Madison today?" I said.

"Yeah sure but we should go now before you're late again." he said.

"Okay. Bye mum." I said kissing her on the top of the head and following my dad to the car. I got into the passenger seat.

"Glasses." he said. I rolled my eyes and pulled them out of my bag and put them on my face.

"Why was I born with such crappy eyes?" I said.

"I don't know ask your mom." he said. I giggled. Finally we pulled up to the school.

"Bye dad." I said, getting out of the car. He waved by to me as I walked up to the front door. I got to my locker and Tate and Madison were standing at my and Tate's locker. Of course they were making out. I walked over.

"Hey Tate can you stick your tongue down your girlfriends throat somewhere else?" I said unlocking my lock.

"You're so lucky so lucky there's witnesses around." Tate said. I just giggled at him.

"Hi Charlotte." Madison said

"Hey." I said. I continued to get my books out as Tate and Madison stood there as well.

"Tate I'm going now." I said

"I'm coming." he said and kissed Madison one more time and then he started walking with me.

"You know I never understood why you never liked her." Tate said.

"For starters she put glue in my hair in year seven. Then told the entire school that I was dating you in year eight. But no she's a really nice girl." I said sarcastically.

"One day you'll come to like her." he said resting he elbow on my shoulder. We got to class and sat down next to each other. It felt like this class would never end and I would never just be able to go to lunch. A couple more minutes.


It was finally lunch time after a long day of classes. I wasn't entirely hungry so I just decided to secretly eat Tate's food. I sat down with Tate and then of course Madison came over. I just sat there and ate some of Tate's fries.

"Oh my god Tate this Friday you should come over to my place for dinner." Madison suggested.

"Actually I have to help Charlie with something." Tate said. Every since we were kids Tate never called me Charlotte only Charlie. He just looked at me with his lying face on.

"Oh yeah I totally forgot." I said

"Oh darn well maybe another time." she kissed him on the cheek and walked back to her table.

"What was that about?" I asked him.

"I just did not want to spend my Friday night listening to her talk about how she wants to get her hair cut." he said. I couldn't help but laugh at him. When it came to girls Tate was completely clueless. I guess you could say he's just like his dad. Well at least that's what my dad said.


Tate drove me home and when I got inside my dad and mum were sitting at the kitchen table.
