Chapter 1

  Sometimes I walk a little faster
In the school hallway
Just to get next to you
Some days I spend a little extra
Time in the morning
Just to impress you

[PRE 1]
Guess you don't notice
Guess you don't need this
Sad you're not seein' what you're missin'
On the outside shyin' away
On the inside dyin' to say

[CHORUS 1]
I'm unusual
Not so typical
Way too smart to be waiting around
Tai chi practicing
Snowboard champion
I could fix the flat on your car
I might even be a rock star

[VERSE 2]
Sometimes I wish when the phone rings
That it would be you
Saying let's hang out
Then you confess
That there's something special between us
Why don't we find out

[PRE 2]
you don't even know me
Guess you don't need me
Why you're not seein' what you're missin'
On the outside shyin' away
On the inside dyin' to say

[CHORUS]
I'm unusual
Not so typical
Way too smart to be waiting around
Tai chi practicing
Snowboard champion
I could fix the flat on your car
I might even be a...

[BRIDGE]
...rock star
If you only knew the real me
I might even be a rock star
I'm telling you that we are meant to be
Now wouldn't it be nice if you could see
That I really am a rock star

[CHORUS]
I'm unusual
Not so typical
Way too smart to be waiting around
Tai chi practicing
Snowboard champion
I could fix the flat on your car
Rocking it where ever we are
Yeah Yeah Yeah
I really am a rock star!
(Yeah I really am a rock star)

I am a rock star
Whoa whoa whoa

"thank you so much! Good night everybody!"

"hurry ali come on!" hanna shouted.

i ran backstage and groaned, looking out at the paparazzi.

"god i hate paps." i said and put on my glasses.

"let's just get it over with al." hanna said and put her arm through mine and my body guards led us out.

emily pov

"we are here just outside the arena where the beautiful and talented Alison DiLaurentis has performed another concert and oh! here she is now!" the news broadcaster ran to alison and her best friend hanna.

barf.

"alison! alison! why are you taking a break from touring?!" 

"alison is it true that you are going back to school?"

"what are you gonna do at home alison?!"

she smiled, "i'm just gonna head back to school. i'm just trying to keep it real." she said and blew a kiss at some reporters.

she got into her stupid limo with her stupid friend and her parents.

"how does Ali D plan to 'keep it real'? we will get the inside scoop. here on access hollywoo-"

"bite me." i hissed as i changed the channel.

"nobody's perfe-"

i changed it before the song could even finish.

"alison dilaurentis donated $50,000 to a child battling breast ca-"

"she is really climbing the totem pole. and for such a talented young woman. beautiful. alison is ju-"

"DOES ANY CHANNEL NOT HAVE THAT GIRL ON IT?!" i shouted as i stood up.

"jesus em relax. why do you hate her so much? alison's amazing." aria said.

"she's a fake! she is just in it for the fame. bullshit she donated. and she's coming back to school now? can god hate me any more?!"

spencer laughed, "wow em. i almost forgot about your 10 year long hatred for alison dilaurentis."

"ever since i was 7. 10 years ago i have hated her. ever since she first moved to rosewood in the 1st grade." i spit and rolled my eyes.

"she was always so nice."

"and full of herself." i said and looked through my books.

"well whatever. but alison dilaurentis is going to be at our school! i'm so excited! i can't wait to get an autograph!" aria squealed and jumped up and down.

i groaned, "fangirls..."

i grabbed my books.

"i am going to my room. you can either crash here or go fan girl at home. not in my house. especially not over alison dilaurentis." i said, shuddering at that name.

i marched upstairs and closed my bedroom door, the click of it closing audible.

i plopped myself on my bed and put my headphones in for my homework like always.

i hit shuffle on my iheartradio and of course "Sometimes I walk a little faster, In the school hallway, Just to get next to you-"

"UGH." i changed it until i heard a good song.

i sighed and did my calculus work.

AP calculus.

senior year, all AP classes.

so stoked.

and varsity swim and basketball.

i finished my homework in a matter of 15 minutes and smiled, turning on my usual binging on friends.

netflix style.

"Ahhh. see? unagi." ross said and i laughed.

my phone buzzed and i looked at it.

get your alison dilaurentis tickets now!

last show on her rule the world tour in rosewood amphitheater, this friday!

i deleted the forward from everyone and put my phone down.

alison pov

"welcome home alison." mom and dad said as we walked inside.

"ah home. the way i love it." i said, taking in that perfect aroma.

"come on! let's go see our rooms!" hanna cheered.

when hanna was 13 her parents passed so since then she has become my sister.

my parents adopted her and she is my best friend as well.

we ran upstairs and i gasped when i saw our old rooms.

i put my head on han's shoulder.

"aw. they're the same." i said in awe and smiled lovingly.

"god i missed home." hanna said as we jumped on the bed.

i skimmed my fingers over my paris comforter and sat on my bed.

"i can't believe you're leaving." hanna said sadly.

"not alone. i'm not leaving my best friend and sister behind! you're one of us now hanna. and i love you too much to let you leave." i said and grabbed her hands.

"i love you too sis." 

i smiled and hugged her.

i smiled adoringly at this memorable home.

"yeah...me too." i said and nodded.

"so are you excited for school?" hanna asked me.

i shrugged, "yeah. i guess."

yes. of course i am.

i can't wait to try to live the normal life i want.
