My heart beat is racing when I turn around to see the person who pulled me into the classroom is Chase he is giving me a glare. I am shaking with fear and the adrenaline pumping through my veins. He asks me with anger in his voice “Did you go last night?” I open my mouth but nothing comes out. Kirsten opens the door to see Chase giving me a glare and the fear in my eyes. She grabs my arm and pulls me out of the room and we sprint down the hall. As we are walking she say’s “what was that about?” I look at the ground and say “I got another note”. Her eyes widen and she says “What happened? What did it say?” I tell her what happened. She say’s “Well what are you gonna do?”
I say “I don’t know anything about who or what this thing is? I think it’s chase but now I don’t know.”
I am sitting at my desk when I glance at the clock It’s only fifteen minutes into the hour I have to spend sitting here bored. Then Mr.D says with smirk on his face “pop quiz!” The two words I never like to hear. Everyone in the room sighs. It’s a good thing before this all happened I read ahead a bit. I get through the test in 20 minutes I hand Mr.D the two papers , He says I can leave the classroom. I am confused on why he is letting me leave but I don’t question him.
15 minutes later
I am sitting in the hallway doodling in my notebook. I take a deep breath then I feel as if none of this has happened I close my eyes and think of when I didn’t have to deal with any of this. I open my eyes and Chase is standing in front of me looking down at me. I have nobody to pull me away or any escape route I can think of at this moment. I stand up put my bag over my shoulder. He is taller than me so I have to look up at him. I have nothing to say to him. I remain standing there speechless. I look at the ground then I bolt for the girls bathroom that is just across the hall. He says as sweet as I think he possibly could, “Wait please? I just want to make sure your safe”. I stop and turn and look him dead in the eyes I walk up to him and say “why would you want to make sure i’m safe” with an attitude bubbling up inside me. “Because I just do! Now please don’t run! before I will have to chain you to the wall just to get you to talk to me”. I stand there my face blank and pale white I scoff and walk into the girls bathroom I lock the door then go into a stall and put my head between my knees I am starting to feel sick. Why does this have to happen to me? I mean I have never dealt with anything like this before. I have lived a pretty normal life except for the fact that my moms job makes us move a lot but she promised that we would stay here at least until I graduate highschool. I was so happy to move here I mean I thought I would make tons of friends and maybe have a boyfriend in the picture and live a normal life here, but I guess not. The ringing of the bell startles me. It’s been an half and hour already, I feel like time is speeding up throughout the day.
I sit at my now usual table with Kirsten blabbing on about some gossip she heard today. I feel as if someone is watching me, I look around the cafeteria no sign of chase and nobody is staring at me that I can see at the moment. I tell Kirsten “I have a bad feeling”
She says “It’s probably the cafeteria food” I smile Kirsten always seems to be able to put a smile on my face. We leave the cafeteria, and Kirsten says “well I have a class in 5 minutes so I better go”. I say “Ok wanna come over after school?” She says “sure”
It’s raining and because of what happened last night I had to ride my bike to school. Ugh just great! Then a man in black SUV pulls up and says “need a lift?” I obviously say “no thanks “. And he says “alright” and drives away. I unchain my bike I start my way home. When I notice a motorcycle pulls up next to me.I can’t see his face because
he has a helmet. There is a stop light just ahead, It turns from yellow to red with what seems like snap of my fingers, I pull into the turning lane so I can get away from the guy on the motorcycle. I wait until the light goes green and I turn down the road then I hear behind me a SCREECH and then a loud bang, I turn to see the motorcycle on its side with some pieces scattered accross the pavement, And the motorcyclist lying on his back and his helmet cracked. I think he is knocked unconcious. I also see a truck with a small dent in the front bumper, As I throw my bike onto the sidewalk I run towards the biker on the ground and lift off his helmet, it’s chase!. I lean my ear down to his mouth I listen to hear if he is breathing, The sound of his breathing is relieving to me. I see his eyes open
I ask him “Do you know what your name is?” He says “ I fell off my bike I didn’t drive into a cement wall” I say in my concerned voice “ This isn’t time for sarcasm your hurt”
He sits up “ I’m fine” and tries to stands up but he grabs his arms and groans in pain and falls back onto the ground . I reach into my pocket and pull my phone out to call 911. They arrive and put chase in the ambulance, I hop on my bike and go straight to the hospital to see if he is ok. I walk up to the curtain that the nurse says Chase’s bed is behind. I open the curtain to find chase lying there with a sling on his arm and an ice pack on his head and his eyes closed. I say “How are you feeling?” he chuckles “Like a million bucks” I ask “What did the doc say?”. “I have a concussion and I broke my wrist it looks like I won’t be riding my bike for a while” You can tell he isn’t very happy about that. I feel bad for him even though at times he can be semi-terrifying, I say “ My car gets out of the shop in the evening want me to give you rides to school until you and your bike are all fixed up. “Are you sure it seemed like I kinda scared you”. Well the whole chain me to the wall thing might have freaked me out a bit but I can deal, I have to go home my parents are gonna freak if i’m home late”. “Wait, if you want we can exchange numbers and I will call you tonight and give you my address” I give him my number and leave on my way home I start regretting giving him my number but I’ll live. Then I remember oh my gosh KIRSTEN! I totally forgot that she was coming over cause I was worried about chase, Oh my god Kirsten probably totally hates me I stop on the sidewalk. Then I look at my phone one message and from Kirsten : I can’t come over have a ton of homework to do sorry: I slide my phone into my pocket get on my bike. So I think to myself I am picking up chase tomorrow that is gonna be an awkward car ride.
15 minutes after I get home
I am riding my bike to the car rental place because my car isn’t finished. After I sign the papers I go into the parking lot and I see there is only one car and left for me rent. It is the coolest car I have ever seen! It is a up and down top cherry red car
As I drive to my house in my rental car cause mine isn’t ready yet the shop is missing a piece for it. I think of the events that happened today. I turn up the radio as my favorite song comes on. My favorite part is the chorus.
Dance your heart away
like you ain’t got another day
You can live your life free
it can just be you and me
Makes me feel confident which most girls my age can’t succeed to feel. I love this feeling it’s a mixture of confidence and fun makes me feel like I can breath. Without a care in the world, A hand of stress and all the things girls like me loathe can’t reach up and pull us down. I pull into my driveway, I walk into my room and text Kirsten and ask her if she wants to Video chat she says yes. I am telling Kirsten about my day and RING RING RING I pick up my cell phone and answer it, The person on the other side of the phone is chase. He gives me his address I tell him “Alrighty well I guess I will see ya tomorrow” He says ever so sweetly “Thank you”. “For what?” I ask “You know stopping by the hospital to see if I was ok” I can tell he is being sincere which doesn’t come around to often. “Welcome gotta go see ya tomorrow” I say as quickly as possible and hang up. I am laying in bed but I can’t sleep I wonder as to what tomorrow will bring.
