The next morning I woke up early, made breakfast, took a shower, and got ready for school.
The minute I walked down stairs with my book bag in my hand, Shane was waiting for me by the door. "Hurry up! I don't want to be late for school." Shane said. "Wait, 'I', you mean you're coming with me to school?" I asked sounding confused. "Yes," He responded "I called the school last night and told them that I would be attending school with you. Me and you have all the same classes as well." "Why?" I asked. "Well I j-just," He took a pause and finaly said, "I just need to get out of the house for awhile." He said as he looked away. "Oh. I guess that's cool." I said climbing down the rest of the steps. "I wonder if it has anything to do with yesturday?" I thought.
I said goodbye to Hayden and walked out the door with Shane.
"Shane, can I ask you something?" I asked. "Sure! You can ask me anything."He replied. "Well, I've always wondered this, but," I took a pause, "How did you and Hayden die?" He looked at me surprised, sighed and said, "Well you know that small lake behind the house?" "Yes." I answered. "Well one day while Hayden and I were swimming in the lake, Hayden swam too far out. He saw a fish and it scared him and he started to panic, he swallowed water and paniced even more. So he started to drown. I tried to go save him but I ended up drowning too. My parents found our bodies floating in the water later that day." He ended it with a sigh. "I'm so sorry!" I said as tears formed in my eyes, "It must have been terrible to go through all of that. I'm sorry I asked." My eyes swealed with tears and soon falling down my face. "Hey! Hey! Hey! Theres no need to cry about it. It's fine. It happened so long ago. It wasnt your fault." He said comfertingly, hugging me tight. He pulled back a little bit and pulled my chin upward. "Theres no need to cry." He said wipping the tears off my face with his jacket. "You're too pretty to cry." He said as he smiled, and in that moment I realized how much I was attracted to this ghost boy with dark brown hair and his soft blue eyes. "Come on. Lets go. We don't want to be late to school." He said letting go of me and walking forward. I just stood there still trying to comprehened what just happened in my head. He stopped walking turned his head and said, "Well are you coming or what?" as he held his hand out waiting for me to grasp it in return. I walked forward and grabbed his hand. We then walked to school together hand in hand.
As soon as we walked into first period together, we were still holding hands, everone turned their heads toward us. "Ah! You must be Shane! Well it's nice to have you! You may take the seat behind Holly." Mr.Seibold anounced. Shane nodded and followed me to my seat and sat behind mine.
Hannah looked at me like I was crazy and tried to mouth words to me. I looked at her confused, not knowing what she was trying to tell me. She sighed, got out a sheet of paper, wrote something down, folded it a couple of times, and handed it to me. I opened the note and read, "Who the heck is that?! And why were you holding hands with him?!" I got out my pincle and wrote, "His name is Shane and he's a friend of mine. I don't know why I was holding hands with him." I folded the paper back and handed it back. She wrote in it, folded it and gave it back to me. I opened it up and read it once more, "Well you sure are lucky to get him! He's hot! ;)" I just giggled and shook my head.
"Okay class you get your five minutes of talking!" Mr.Seiblod anounced. I felt my chair getting pulled backwards and saw that Shane was pulling it back. He wrapped his hands around my waist and laied his head on my sholder. All the girls turned around and glared at me jealously, It was kind of scary. Shane laughs at the girls facial expresions and says, "We should make them really jealous." Shane giggled. "How?" I asked. "Like this!" Shane said as he kissed my cheek. I could feel my cheeks get bright red. I looked at Hannah for help, but she just laughed at the girls facial expretions as well.
I can honestly say I was scared.
Second period came around and everyone had to change out. The girls wore blue shorts and white shirts. The shorts I think were a little too short for me, I mean they were shorter than all of the other girls, and the school ran out of the normal white t-shirts so I had to wear a white v-neck shirt, wich I was comforitable with. Once I came out of the girls locker room I could feel Jake's and his friends stairing at me. I got scared and stood there nervously waiting for Hannah to come out, when I felt someone wrap their arms around my waist and lay their head on my shoulder. I turned my head and it was Shane, giving Jake and his friends an angry glare. "What are you doing?" I asked. "N-Nothing." He said as he giggled.
We played soccor for the rest of P.E. and changed out of our gym clothes.
The rest of the day was similar to first period, girls getting jealous, Shane making them get jealous, and Shane and I holding hand, well until 5th period came along. Shane and I walked into 5th period holding hands, and Mr.Miller said, "I guess we found a couple of love birds!" I quickly snached my hand away, embarased, while Jake stared in envy. Shane laughed, because he seen how mad Jake was. Jake seemed to like to stare at me and Shane thourghout 5th period.
