[*SHAELYNS POV!

I packed my things into my bag as the final bell went, which meant that school was now over. Quickly getting up from my seat, I made my way over to the door of the classroom and got out of their as fast as I could. People pushed and shoved past one another as they came out of their classes, piling into the halls making their way to their lockers, to their friends, or out of the school. I made no time to do any of that, except get out of their, because one, I had no friends their yet and two, hell I didn't even go and find where my locker was today and not the I even care to be honest. I was just glad that school was finally done for the day and glad to be making my way out of their . To be honest, today was actually not as bad as I thought it was going to be. People actually left me alone and at lunch, nobody took my money or threw their food at me for once. Nobody shoved me into any lockers, nobody beat on me, picked on me, called me names or anything of that sort. But what did bug me now was the fact that I had to go home. Hell I would have gone someplace else if I knew of any other place around here but I dont so for now, I will just have to deal with it.
I looked behind me as I walked and saw that Ryan kid with that other guy Brandon and a small group of people walking not to far behind me. Turning my focus back to walking, I realized that I was now not to far from home and as I got closer, I saw a familiar car parked outside my house with music blasting from the inside of it. I immediately dropped my bag and ran the extra few feet, excited, and jumped up on my older cousin Derek.
“Derek!” I squealed as we hugged
“hey their kiddo, I’ve missed you so much!!” he said as he hugged me and kissed the top of my head
“Ive missed you so much to! What are you doing all the way here in Vancouver?”
“I'm on a road trip across Canada and thought that since I was over here, I would stop in for a bit and say hi to my favorite cousins”
“did my mom know”
“nope, she was surprised to”
“Um Hey?” said an unfamiliar voice from behind me and I turned around to see that Brandon guy from my English class, standing their with my bag “You uh, dropped this” he said, handing my bag to me
“Thanks” I said politely and shyly while taking it from him
“No problem. See you around?”
“definitely” I said and he smiled as he walked back to his friends
“who was that?” asked a curious Derek, “your boyfriend?”
“Um hello? No. I don't even know him or anything about him other than he is in my English class”
“Uh-huh, sure, right” I just looked at him and shoved him playfully
“that hurt” he laughed while rubbing his side
“oh boo hoo. Serves you right”
“for what?”
“for... for you know...lets just go inside”
Derek turned his car off and followed me inside and to the kitchen where my mom was along with Joel.
Joel immediately ran up to Derek, who picked him up throwing him in the air and catching him and hugging him. Joel just laughed as Derek did it to him again. I walked out of the kitchen, smiling, and into the living room to watch some television. Grabbing the channel changer and sitting down on the couch, I turned the TV on and began flipping threw the channels until I found the one I was looking for. Much Music. Although they werent playing anything good at the moment, it was the only thing that was just barely interesting enough to watch. Sitting their by myself watching TV for what seemed like hours but was only forty five or so minutes, someone finally came in and sat down beside me on the couch. I looked up from the TV and saw that it was Derek with my little brother Teeghan. Teeg jumped off of Dereks lap and started playing with one of his toys on the floor. Derek just looked at me.
“so you really dont like it here, huh” he said and I looked down at my hand which were placed in my lap
“well at first I didn’t but now I’m kind of seeing it as not so bad, you know?”
“I know exactly what you mean”
“I like it here” Teeghan said as he stopped what he was doing for a brief moment and looked up at Derek and I from the floor. We both just smiled at him
“I know you do bud”
“your mom seems to think that you hate it here and that's why you have been ignoring her”
“No, I hate her and since when does she care? Her and I have never gotten along”
“well that is true but Shae, come on, everything will get better”
“yeah? When? I have been waiting like my whole life for things to get better but they haven't yet, so when?”
“I meant the move, Shae. I meant that things will get better here sooner or later. You may hate it here now but once you just give it some time, give yourself some time I mean, you wont hate it as much as you thought you would, or you wont hate it as much as you do right now. Just give everyting some time. Give it all a chance. I promise you” Derek said and he patted my back twice before he got up and left back into the kitchen, Teeghan following him, leaving me their by myself once again but speechless


I sat their on the couch for a little bit with the TV still on but not really paying any attention to it as I thought about what Derek just said to me. Maybe he is right. Maybe all I need to do is just give everything else some time for me to get used to. But none of this means that anything will change between my mom and I. But for now none of that really matters, to be honest, because all I wanted to do at the moment was now play my guitar.


Shutting off the television, I ran upstairs to my room and grabbed my acoustic guitar from underneath my bed. Carefully placing it on top of my bed, I unzipped the case and gently pulled my guitar out of it. Zipping the case back up and leaving it their on top of my bed, I grabbed my guitar and went back downstairs and outside onto the front porch. I was immediately followed out by my sister Mandy and the both of us sat down on the front steps


“what song?” she asked me as I though of what song to play

“How about ‘Wake Up’”

“alright” mandy said as she stood up. Most likely to dance.


And I was right. As soon as I started to play the song, Mandy started dancing and singing along with me


Wake Up


Is this the ride alright I’ll ride
Well grab my coat ‘cause I’m getting colder
I need a part in your play let’s play
I’ll write my lines good as I get older
Bright thoughts leave me
Bright thoughts leave my mind
Wake up one day
Now I think it’s time to sleep
Wake up someday
Now I think I better sleep
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh oh oh oh

I wanna run but this heart won’t start
I skipped a beat if it got the rhythm
I got these thoughts but these thoughts don’t stop
You wanna fight but I’d rather give in
Bright thoughts leave me
Bright thoughts leave my mind


Wake up one day
Now I think it’s time to sleep
Wake up someday
Now I think I better sleep
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh oh oh oh
I hear a voice before I slept
It sounded real as it passed your lips
I wanna see what you see so I close my eyes

I hear a voice before I slept
It sounded real as it passed your lips
I wanna see what you see so I close my eyes
Wake up one day
Now I think it’s time to sleep
Wake up someday
Now I think I better sleep
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh eh, oh oh oh oh


Mandy and I both laughed as I finished the song and put my guitar down. I have not had that much fun in a few weeks and It felt kind of good to laugh again.

Mom, from inside, yelled for Mandy and so Mandy ran up the stairs, still laughing, and into the house to where ever it was that mom was. Smiling to myself, I picked up my guitar and just strummed a few random chords before playing another song.


Your Call


Waiting for your call, I'm sick, call I'm angry
Call I'm desperate for your voice
Listening to the song we used to sing
In the car, do you remember
Butterfly, Early Summer
It's playing on repeat, Just like when we would meet
Like when we would meet
Cause I was born to tell you I love you
And I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight
Stripped and polished, I am new, I am fresh
I am feeling so ambitious, you and me, flesh to flesh
Cause every breath that you will take
When you are sitting next to me
Will bring life into my deepest hopes, What's your fantasy?
Whats your...
Cause I was born to tell you I love you
And I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight
And I'm tired of being all alone, and this solitary moment makes me want to come back home
[X4]
I know everything you wanted isn't anything you have
Cause I was born to tell you I love you
And I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight
Cause I was born to tell you I love you
And I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight
I know everything you wanted isn't anything you have


I finished playing the song and just kind of stared up at the dimly lit sky for a moment before putting my guitar down again and just sitting their now looking down. I looked up again as I heard someone clap and come closer over to me.


“That was amazing” said the guy

“oh, uh, you heard that?”

“yeah. I think it was amazing”

“thanks” I blushed

“I'm Ryan” he said as he stuck out his hand for me to shake it

“Shae” I said shyly as I shook his hand

“we have English together and we sit beside each other”

“I think we also got science together to”

“Mr. James block five?”

“Yep”

“sweet. Well I better get going. Just came out for a walk and I heard you playing and singing. Im honest when I say that you are good”

“Thanks” I blushed again

“no problem. Well I better get going”

“yeah same here. I have to go in and eat or else my mom will literally come out here and drag me in by my ear” I said and he just gave me this ‘seriously?’ look “Yeah, she does that. Well I better go” I said as I stood up, grabbing my guitar

“alright, it was nice meeting you”

“nice meeting you to”

“see you tomorrow at school?”

“definately” I said politely and we both went our ways.


‘Well that was...Unexpected’ I thought to myself as I put my guitar away back in my room and went back downstairs to the kitchen to see what was for dinner. Derek and mom were in the kitchen making it and said that dinner would not be ready for another fifteen or so minutes and so I just went back up to my room and did some reading. I liked to read and write when their was nothing else to do. It, well, gave me something to do to kill the time.


xoxo
