What A Catch (Catching Up) Chapter: fourChapter four:"A month." I thought with a smile and an open heart. "It's been a month," Since Mikayla and I have been dating and a few weeks before school ends. I've never been in a real relationship before, or well a relationship at all. She was everything I remember and dreamed. Sometimes I can still look at her and see the young five year old in a little red plaid dress she used to wear almost everyday. I still got bullied but I didn't care because I had something worth living for now and not a reason to not smile. We would walk home everyday and go to one of out houses catching up on the twelve years we've been away. Her parents we're beyond happy to see me again and my mother smiles now and has stopped drinking so much since she has seen my heart so full of happiness."
And then my brother Joe jumped into the stream after the fog!" We couldn't stop laughing but when out laughter died down we heard snickering. I looked behind us. A few girls from school we
What A Catch (Catching Up) Chapter: threeChapter three:"Haha yeah you better run you transfreak!" Always running. I was in the bathroom (which was totally dangerous) but it was during class period so I didn't think anyone would be in there. I guess I was wrong. While in the middle of running away, I ran right into someone. It was Hannah Armstrong, some goth girl in my grade. She had curly purple hair with black streaks. I think she was one of the few people that didn't hate me. I apologized and turned the corner nearly running into someone else."Oh I'm sorry." The voice said. I slowed my breathing and locked down. I jumped back a little when I saw it was Mikayla, the new girl. "I didn't mean to startle you.""Oh no it's alright I just hope I didn't scare you.""Nah I'm alright. My name is Mikayla. Mikayla Sullivan."Beautiful"I'm Daria," I told her my female name. "Daria Tanager""That's funny I used to know a boy named Tanager. It's not really a common last name but it must be coincidental. Maybe he's family
What A Catch (Catching Up) Chapter: twoChapter two:I didn't tell mom what happened in school. No need to give her more grief. At dinner we were quite until she said, "Your father called today." She said with anger."Oh," I was beyond surprised "What did he want?" I asked frowning, I felt like I was drowning in guilt."He wanted to know how you we're doing
""Ha!" I snorted, "Why would he care?" I asked sarcastically."I told him to piss off and that we have enough problems. And then I hung up. I wasn't about to argue with him." I stared down at my Caesar salad and closed my eyes trying to force past memories to go back to the forbidden "Past Album" in my head.It was seventh grade
"I can't do I, I can't do it!" I screamed in my head. I started to tear up. I was so scared. When I got to my house I stood on the stoop for a few moments before entering the house that soon would not be a home. I heard my mother cooking dinner in the kitchen, my father in his study. I took a deep breath and approached my mot
What A Catch (Catching up) Chapter: oneChapter one: If life had entrance music it would play right now. I'm thinking "What a Catch, Donnie" by Fall Out Boy. Hmm what to complain about first? My lack of friends, my non-existent sex life, my over working mother
? Eh the list goes on. "I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match, what a catch, what a catch, whoa, whoa, whoa". I was drifting off into a comfortable sleep, which was quite dangerous. I don't know what I was thinking. I clearly wasn't when I stayed up late last night watching old Bella Lugosi movies. Damn that man is amazing. Smack. Something sticky hit the side of my face. I grabbed it quickly by the stick, 'twas an already licked lollipop that someone threw at me. The class started to erupt in laughter until Mrs. Heper's loud irritating voice sounded. Still slumped in my seat I took out my earphones and looked to the front of the room where she was introducing a new student."Isn't this exciting class? A new st
