I woke up that morning to the sun shining into my room. I got ready for school quickly and only had to say good morning to my mom before I headed out the door. She got home really late last night so I didn’t have to tell her about my first day and I didn’t feel like talking about it to her this morning. I headed off to school with the windows down and my music blaring. Since I left so early there was no one there yet. I got out of my car and headed to a bench in the sun. I pulled out the latest book I was reading, The Fellowship of the Ring for the 10th time, and tried to read.

After about 5 minutes I realized that I couldn’t concentrate on the book at all. So I put the book away and pulled out my ipod. I started thinking about Christopher and whether he would be at school today. If my crazy idea was right then he won’t be here because of the sun. He should be here though because I know that vampires can’t exist and I’m just too obsessed with Twilight for my own good. Every time I tried to just concentrate on the music I caught myself wondering about Christopher. What music does he listen to? Does he play any sports? Does he go to church? What’s his family like? I stopped myself after this last thought; I’m becoming obsessed with this guy I know nothing about! Right then I heard the bell ring and noticed that no one was outside.

“Crap! I’m late to class on my 2nd day of school. That’ll look good,” I muttered to myself, frustrated, as I hurried to my first period. All during that day I tried not to think about Christopher, which was impossible. Since no one besides Christopher has talked to me, I ate lunch alone again. This time I ate outside and listened to my ipod, trying not to cry. But when Relient K’s song “When I Go Down” came on I couldn’t help but let some tears escape. That song gets to me every time I listen to it.

After 5th period I walked quickly to choir. I almost stopped dead in my tracks when I saw that Christopher wasn’t there. Maybe he is just running late. I headed to where I thought my seat was.

“Christine, could you come here please? I would like to talk to you,” Mr. Johnson’s voice interrupted my thoughts and made me jump. I turned around and walked slowly over to his desk trying to calm myself. “I never got a chance to talk to you after you fainted yesterday. Are you ok?”

“Oh yeah, I’m fine.”

“Are you sure? Because fainting isn’t something that happens when someone is fine.”

Can’t he just let it go? It was a simple fainting spell. “I just had a very long day and I’m going through a lot right now. It was just overwhelming,” I really don’t want to talk about it with a teacher I don’t even know.

“All right, you can go to your seat now.”

“Thank you,” I then turned around and hurried to my seat. Choir went by in a blur; the music was so easy that I had it down halfway through class. I guess it helps that I went through it twice yesterday afternoon. When the bell rang I hurried to my car and headed home. When I got home I found a note on the table, it was from my mom. It said:

Christine,

There was something I had to take care of back in Seattle. I’m sorry. I’ll be back tomorrow evening. There is money on the table for pizza or whatever you want for dinner.

Love Mom

“Wow! She didn’t even bother to call me and tell me during lunch. All she did was leave a stupid note. Well I’m not going to stay here in an empty house,” I muttered as I grabbed the money and headed out the door. I’ll just go to Port Angeles and do some shopping or something.

So I headed off to Port Angeles blasting U2. By the time I got there clouds had covered the sky again and it looked like it was going to rain. I parked by a bookstore and looked over to the passenger’s seat. Then I remembered that I didn’t bring a sweatshirt with me because I actually thought that the sun would stay all day.

“Great! Just when I thought this day couldn’t get any worse.” I got out of the car and started to walk around, just to clear my head. I started to cross the street and then saw blinding lights coming straight towards me. Oh crap I’m going to die! That was the last thing I remember before I went flying onto the ground.
