"Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadddddddd!!!!!!!", I screamed at the top of my lungs.

"What is it, Alexa?! Stop screaming like crazy, our neighbors will kill us", Dad hissed.

"We have a lady visitor here!" Dad quickly stood up on his feet and ran to the door. I feasted on my pancakes while Dad was talking to the lady. Pfft! Whatever, if she's my new stepmom, she'll be leaving us in less than a month, I thought.

A while later, Dad let the visitor inside and called me.

"Alexa, dear. Come here I have something to tell you"

"But Dad, I'm eating!"

"Alexa", Dad said sternly. Ugghhh...! I guess I'll just see you later, my dear pancakes.

I walked annoyingly to the living room, where Dad and his vistor was.

"Lisa, this is Alexa, my daughter. Alexa, this is Lisa your new mother", Dad introduced. Lisa smiled at me and reached out her hand toward me and smiled while I just stared at her in disbelief.

"I don't care", I uttered with boredom present in my voice. Hurt flashed her eyes as she took her hand back. Ha, serves you right!

Dad gave me a respect-her-or-you're-dead look and sighed before saying, "Hi, I'm Alexa and nice to meet you." Actually it wasn't nice, it was HORRIFYING!

"So she's here because we are moving to Edmond, Oklahoma", Dad announced. WHAAAAAAAAA?!

- S + CL -

"Miss Foster, please pay attention", my teacher told me, publicly. Wow, who knew life in Oklahoma would be TERRIBLE! Anyway, I have no problem with it.


Lunch. Woooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Hey, Alexa. Wanna have lunch together?", Grey asked. Oh, did I mention that I have a new friend? His name is Grey Mikaell Evans but he told me to just call him Grey. He has brown hair, which is arranged messily, and fair complexion. Ooh, not to mention a little taller than me.

"Sure G"

We stopped by the locker room and left our things then proceeded to the canteen.

- S + CL -

One subject that stands between me and home sweeet hoome - Mathematics. Good thing that I like Math a lot. I don't know, maybe because I'm good at it? Plus, Grey is my classmate. So, I therefore conclude that:

Grey + Math = Happy Me!

Haha, just the work of my silly mind. So, I am now going to our classroom and since its located at the third floor, I still have to climb the stairs. Urrggghhhh...!!

"A penny for your thoughts?", a voice beside me asked, which took me away from my reverie. I shook my head and looked at the person who said that.

"Hayden?! What the hell are you doing here?!", I yelled to the guy beside me.

Hayden Yamano is his name and he is one of the school hertthrobs and a certified playboy. Well, that's according to the students.

We, kind of, know each other because we've shared a couple of classes together but we've never really talked or anything.

"Is it now a crime to go to my next class? And besides I just caught you here, staring at nothing so I decided to talk to you", he explained.

"Oh, I'm sorry", I murmured.

"Nah. Its alright. I got your back, Alexa Rae", he assured which made me smile.

"Thanks, Hayden", I muttered.

"Sure. Anything for a friend", he said then walked away. I froze at the word. Friend. Should I trust Hayden? Or should I believe the gossips about him. I'll just... I won't trust him... for now...
