Chloe’s POV

Time flies by quickly. It’s like yesterday I’m the new kid on the block that’s got everybody curious, and now, I’m the girlfriend of the most popular guy at school. I never really cared about popularity, I just want to finish high school in peace and carry on with my life.

Our time as a high school student is nearly coming to an end, a few weeks from now we’ll be marching up the stage to receive our diplomas. I looked to the sleeping guy beside me and can’t help to think of what would happen to us after high school. Would we still be together? I know people who went to college together and grew apart then eventually broke up.

I know people say we’re too young to think of those kinds of things, I talked with my mum yesterday, I called her when I got home after my fight with Mason, Andy was busy and Ed was already sleeping, so I decided to confide in her; she advised me not to get too serious with Mason because high school relationships don’t really work out especially in college. College is different.

As I’ve said before, education is important in our family, so choosing a college that I’ll attend to is crucial. Whatever career I choose, I know that my family will be there to support me, as long as I’m happy with what I’m doing.

I’ve already sent out application forms to the schools that I want to attend to, I’m contemplating on whether to tell Mason my choices or not. I know he wants us to be together in college but I don’t want him to decide on what college he’s going to attend to just because I’m there.

We’ve talked about this before; we’ve talked about what our plans would be after high school and he said, he doesn’t care what school he’ll be going to as long as I’m there. It’s sweet and it scares me at the same time.

It makes me happy knowing that this relationship I’m into is not just some past time or just so I could have a boyfriend. It’s nice to know that he’s serious with our relationship and that he loves me truly. On the other hand, the reason why it scares me is because, let’s just say went to the same college together and our relationship didn’t work out, I don’t want to be the one to blame for why he didn’t chose the college he wants to attend. I don’t want him to have regrets.

I decided to go out of bed and have something to eat, it’s not that early in the morning anymore, it surprised me to see that nobody’s up yet, usually this time of the day, my family is already up. Huh, weird.

I went to the kitchen and found a note stuck on the fridge.

Chloe,

Dad and I went on a date, yes, even though we’re married we still go out on dates. Your brother went to a friend’s house. You and Mason have the house to yourselves the whole day. I hope you can work things out between the two of you.

Love,

Mum

I smiled when I read the note; only my mum would do this. I crumpled the note and opened the fridge in search for something to eat. I know we have some leftovers here from last night. I really need to learn how to cook so I won’t be a scavenger in our own house. Now that I think about it, why don’t I start now?

I stared at the foods in our fridge and decided on what I would experiment on and practice my cooking skills. This is the first time I’m going to cook so I need to start with a simple one.

Maybe I could fry; frying looks easy when I watch Mum do it.

I reached for some bacon and eggs.

Basic.

I plugged my iPod on a speaker and turned the volume up. As I start to prepare. I took out the utensils I’d use for frying. Like the oil and frying pan. The only thing I’m missing is the spatula.
