Chapter 1

Slowly opening the door to my house, I tried not to make any sound. It was 11:30 and I'm pretty sure everyone was asleep...

"Ava...?" I heard my dad say slightly louder than normal. Okay, I was wrong about that. My dad was still awake.

"Coming..." I quickly threw my shoes on the floor, and went upstairs to my dad's office.

"Yes dad?" I walked in slowly and sat down opposite him.

"I talked to Mr Brooks today..." he paused.

"And...?" I quietly said.

"And he invited you to their house party on Friday..." he looked up from his file and smiled at me. Today was Tuesday.

"Really? For the twins' birthday?" I asked.

"Yeah, they are having a house party. They have invited everyone."

"Oh cool! I was..."

"Go to bed early tonight sweetie, okay?" He said cutting me off. I nodded and kissed his cheek.

"Goodnight." I walked back to my room to see my brothers in my room... On my laptop?... Giggling? Right, I'm not really that good at guessing who's asleep and who's not.

"Umm... What do you think you're doing?" I ran over to see that they've hacked into my Facebook account.

"You like Skip?!" they both yelled at the same time.

"No! Seriously guys, GET OUT!" I yelled, but then covering my mouth. Realising that my mum and younger sister were asleep. Grabbing hold of their shirts and forcing them out of my room even though they are: taller, older and much stronger than me.

"Ave likes Skip! Ave likes Skip!" They yelled, running up and down the stairs.

"No I don't! What were you doing on my messages?!" I whisper-yelled, running after them.

"Because you love Skip!" They laughed and ran away. Ugh, they were acting like children.

"Shut up! Everyone's asleep!" I whispered loudly at them. 'Everyone' meaning 2 of our family members.

I decided to call Daniel.

*Ring ring*...*Ring ring*...

"Hello?"

"Skip! You alright? How's work?" I accidentally said louder than I should have.

"Well, I had dinner with everyone at work. You should meet this girl, Harley. She's really cool. We can chill at my place?" he asked.

"Sure... When?" I'm very organised, and I do need to know specific times and everything...

"Tomorrow? My shift ends at 5... So just come to mine at 6?" I looked at my diary... 'free' was written in tomorrow's slot.

"Sounds great. I'll walk down at 5 to 6" It takes less than 5 minutes to walk to Skip's house. In the other direction, it only takes 2 or 3 minutes to walk to the Brooks house. And James lives 10 minutes away from me...

"Yeah, I'll get the rest of the group to come too..."

"Cool, can't wait! Anyways, I'm getting kinda tired now, I'll see you tomorrow. Good luck in work!" I climbed into bed, pulling my covers up to my chest.

"Haha, thanks. See you tomorrow, goodnight weirdo." I giggle whenever he calls me that.

"Goodnight loser." We laughed in sync before hanging up. I gently closed my eyes and drifted off to sleep...

*Next morning...*
