I had just sat down to start my day off. It had been an okay morning, but my parents were still arguing all the time and I was quickly finding out that it wasn't a good way to start out my day.
I needed to be refreshed at school, to put on the "perfect" mask and pretend my life was sunshine and rainbows.
After all, I had a reputation to uphold, didn't I? My name is Autumn, and I am one of the most popular girls in school.
I made it my biggest mission to keep everyone, and I mean everyone, at school uninformed of how bad it was getting at home. I didn't even tell my best friend in the whole world, Mya.
It was a rainy day, and I was soaking wet- but still looking good. Sometimes, I feel like my looks are the only way I'm even popular at all. I try not to focus on that though.
I've had several boyfriends so far in my high school experience, most were mistakes. There was always one boy who intrigued me, though.
His name was Ryan, and he was dark, mysterious, and always kept to himself. He never talked to anyone, but I wanted to have a conversation with him so badly, I just wished I knew how.
This was the first day coming back from summer break. I hadn't seen anyone all summer, other than Mya of course. Secretly, I wondered how Ryan was, and I wanted to talk to him more than ever.
Everyone was crowded in the hallways, hugging, and screaming with joy to see each other again. I was searching desperately for Ryan. And then, there he was.
I noticed right away how he got a new haircut, it looked so good. I got very excited, and subconsciously walked up to him.
