Sarah's POV

We pulled I got the school and parked just as the bell rang inside the school. The whole ride to school I felt Riker's gaze on me, I would just turn away and pretend I didn't notice. I didn't mind it much though, most of the time I hate people staring at me.

Riker led me to our first class which is music, we entered a big room with a grand piano, a bunch of chairs and loads of instruments on the walls. Riker stood up front and I took a seat in the middle of the chairs, everyone settled in and Riker stepped forwards.

"Hello! I'm Riker and I have volunteered to teach you music. We will begin by seeing which area you are strongest at so I can teach to your strengths." He said with a huge smile.

"So first is a sort of demo, you can either dance or sing. Nothing long just a verse or two. Or a couple of steps." He explained, demonstrating a few moves. The girls in the class screamed as I plugged my ears.

Riker looked at me with a smirk. "Okay, how about....you. You go first," he said pointing to me. I blushed at my feet as I got up to stand beside Riker. "Whenever you're ready." He said as he backed away to give me space.

I took a breath and started singing really quietly. "Wherever we goo, yeah. It's crazy stupid love." I sang, the class laughed at me. "Could you speak up a little when you're singing please?" Riker asked, knowing I was shy he was trying to encourage me.

"I never cared bout my stupid hair for you came into my life babe. I would've never seen that my eyes were green for I laid them right on you babe." I sang as the class laughed harder, a tear slid down my cheek as they did. "Aw...she's crying." A girl from the back row said, with a fake pouty tone. I ran out of the class and down to the end of the hallway.

I sat up against some lockers as I pulled my knees to my chest. I cried softly into my knees as I heard footsteps came towards me. Which was surprising since it was the middle of class. "Sarah are you okay?" Riker said as he sat beside me. "Y-yeah, I'm okay." I lied, as I sniffled.

"You were great, you know that?" He said softly to me. "No I wasn't." I sniffled as I looked up at him, Riker looked at me sadly. "You really were, just a tiny bit quiet." He said making his voice all funny when he said tiny. I giggled and Riker smiled as if achieving his goal. "Do you wanna go back to class or just spend the rest of it out here?" He asked me, I thought about that for a second before standing up.

"Great, let's go!" He said, hooking my arm in his and skipping off with me as I giggle behind him. We came into the class to the girls laughing loudly in the back as the guys tried to beat each other at arm wrestling. "Class!" Riker shouted with a clap, everyone scattered and rushed to their seats, I gave Riker a surprised look as he shrugged. I took my seat once again and sat quietly as everyone else did their performances.

After class Riker walked me to English where he was volunteering as a teachers aid.

"Finally released from prison!" Ross shouted as we walked to the car, I rolled my eyes. "Hey don't roll your eyes at me!" Ross pouted. "Oh I'm sorry Ross." I said in a fake pouty voice, everyone laughed as we pulled out of the parking lot. Riker turned into Sonic and we ordered some food for us and some to bring back for Ellington, Rydel, Stormie and Mark. And let me tell you, that was A LOT of food.

After we got back to their house I decided to head home to clean up a bit before my mom got home from work. "Okay, well if your ever bored then just pop over!" Riker said as I started to leave. "I just might." I said as I started off towards my house.

Heading into my house I started to clean up, tossing my bag of food onto the counter I began with the dishes. As I finished up by cleaning the hallway my mother burst in through the door lip locked with some dude in a suit. Disgusted I ran up into my room as I tried to escape the horrible sounds they were making. Backing into a wall I found a door.

"Weird..." I mumbled to myself as I opened it. A set of stairs rose up and I started up them. A shred of light peeked out into the darkness as I reached the top of the stairs. I walked over and looked into the light, it shown outside and it was a cloth that was con sealing the light. I ripped the cloth down and was blinded from the sudden light.

I looked around the room and saw that it was a music studio! A recording booth sat in the corner, a sound board next to it. It was a perfect studio! It had a couch and everything, a little window seat sat beneath the window.

I went over and flicked on the lights, I hit record and went into the booth to test it. "Ooh, oh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh oooh. I want you bad." I sang before hitting a button and stopping the recording, I checked the recording and it sounded awesome! I spent the rest of the day in the studio as I blocked out my mother and.... Whoever the man was. My phone buzzed and I checked it.

Rikersblue - Hey, wanna come swim?

Sarah - Sure be over in a few.

I totally had forgotten I had given Riker my number. Oh well, I hopped off my chair and went back into my room, shutting the door behind me. I rummaged through my drawers and found a black bikini with little gold details on it, I also threw on a white over dress and grabbed my towel.

Plugging my ears I ran past my moms room and dodged the scattered clothes everywhere. Ew. Just ew. I ran out the door and walked to Riker's. I knocked on the door and waited. Ross came to the door with nothing on but his board shorts. I blushed and looked at my feet. "Oh hey Sarah! Come in, everyone's in the back. We have some other people over as well." Ross said as he ushered me in leading me to the backyard.

I almost fell into the pool at what I saw, I think I'd rather sit in my room and listen to my mom than see that again. I ran into the house, out the front door, back into my house and didn't stop until I was in my studio and bawling my eyes out. I had seen Riker by the pool, kissing a girl.
