I woke up the next day and got ready for school.

"Bye sweetie, have a nice first day of school," my mom said as she dropped me off.

"Thanks mom," I said as I started to walk towards the entrance.

I went to the front office.

"Hi, can I help you?" asked the lady at the front desk.

"My name is Alina Hinchok, I'm a new student and I need my class schedule," I said.

"Oh sure, wait one second," said the office lady.

She went back somewhere and came back with a copy of it.

I took a look at it.

1. AP US History
2. French 1
3. Health
4. Lunch
5. English
6. Algebra 1
7. Chemistry

I headed over to my first class, I don't why I chose to take an AP class. It was going to be a lot of work, but I really enjoy history so maybe it won't be so bad.

I find an empty desk next to a girl with wavy brown hair.

"Hey, I don't think I've ever seen you around before, what's your name?" she asked.

"Oh, I'm Alina, my family just moved here," I said shyly.

"My name is Jane, it's nice to meet you," she said, "I heard this teacher is going to be tough so we should probably form a studying group or something."

"Oh sure," I said.

"Here let me give you my number and we can text each other if we have any questions," she said.

I handed her my phone and she added herself as a contact. I did the same in her phone.

"Alright class, let's begin. Welcome to your first day of sophomore or junior year. My name is Mrs. Kindley and I will be teaching you about our wonderful country's history this semester."

She gave us the whole spiel about the syllabus and then at the end of class, we watched morning announcements on the television.

"Tickets for homecoming will be on sale 2 weeks from now so don't forget to get your tickets!"

"Wow, homecoming seems early," I said.

"Yeah, our school usually does it very early in the year," she said, "since you're new and probably don't know many people yet, would you want to join my group of friends for homecoming? We plan on getting dinner and then just hanging out at the dance together!"

"Yeah I'd like that," I smiled. I was really happy I was able to make a friend so quickly on my first day!

The bell rang and as I was walking to class, I saw David.

He looked over at me and awkwardly waved at me. Ugh, he was so cute.

I took a seat in my next class which was French. Jane walked in and sat right next to me.

"We have another class together, awesome," I said.

"Yeah I'm really glad!" she said.

"Bonjour classe" said the French teacher. He introduced himself in English and then explained the syllabus.

After that, I had health. By the time I walked there, the class was pretty full of students so I sat next to a tall, tan guy with curly hair.

The teacher once again, gave his first day speech until it was time to go.

After that, I had lunch. Unfortunately, Jane and I didn't have the same lunch period so I ended up sitting alone.

Just then, a tall figure towered over me as I was eating my pizza.

I looked up and recognized him from my health class.

"Hey little lady, what are you doing all alone?" he asked as he sat down in the seat next to me.

"My family just moved here and I have only met a couple people so far," I explained to him.

"Hey well I'll join you, you seem lonely," he said.

"Sure," I smiled.

Him and I talked until lunch ended and I went on to my next class, which was English.

I sat by a blonde girl who I also befriended. Her name was Mary Kate.

After that, I had math and then at the end, chemistry.

By the time I got to my last class, I was exhausted. The teacher introduced himself and he had already made us a seating chart. I sat in the back corner of the class, in front of a blonde guy. Our desks were isolated from the rest of the class for some reason.

"I'm Ethan by the way," he said.

"Alina," I replied.

"You like memes?" he asked.

"Uh, I guess," I replied.

He handed me his phone with Snapchat opened up.

I typed in my username, assuming he was going to use it to send me memes.

He gave me a smirk and didn't talk to me for the rest of the class period.

After school, I waited around by the front of the school.

"Need à ride?" asked a familiar voice.

I looked up and it was David.

"Oh sure," I said.

He motioned for me to follow him and so I did.

He unlocked a red Chevy Cruz. I got into the front seat. The first thing I noticed when I got inside is that it smells like crème brûlée. Yum, his mom must bake a lot.

"So, how was your first day?" he asked.

"It was good, I made some friends already and I even got invited to a group for homecoming," I said.

"Oh cool, well I'd ask you to hang out after school but I need to go to work soon," he said.

"There's always next time," I replied.

He smiled.

We got home quickly since we didn't live too far from school.

"Hey, do you want me to drive you to school tomorrow morning?" he asked before I went inside.

"Yeah sure," I said.

"Great! I'll see you tomorrow then."

"See you!"
