So I probably should be working on my other two stories right now, but when this popped into my head, I just couldn't help it. Had to get it down on paper before the idea disappeared.
Sorry that this is a short first chapter, but i liked where it ended. Makes things really easy for the next chapter.
Thanks for reading and an extra special thank you to anyone who reviews.
Fall For Me
Another Valentine's Day spent alone.
Just Freaking great! This is starting to become a bad habit….
Sitting on the roof by myself I replayed my third consecutive "Single's Awareness day" in a row in my head.
Today was a Friday which made it an even more "magical" day for all of the couples. Walking through the hallways had been painful, seeing all of my friends and their significant others arm in arm.
It's not like there was anything wrong with me, it's just that none of my relationships lasted much longer than a couple of weeks. The last one had lasted a record 5 days.
My friends tell me that I have a knack for picking losers. I was starting to think they were right.
This grouped with my horrible tendency to fall in love easily often ended badly…
What I needed was someone who actually loved me and wasn't really some jerk.
Though I'm not too sure that there are many of those people left in the world…
Maybe if someone fell in love with me first then I could be the one in control the relationship. At least, it seemed like all of my other relationships had been completely out of my control. Every time I'd been too head-over-heels in love to try to gain control of where things were headed.
I leaned back and look up at the stars. How many couples were looking up at the very same sky, enjoying their night together?
I sighed and closed my eyes, a frown plastered on my face.
"Stupid Love…" I muttered to myself. I stayed silent for a few minutes trying to clear my mind.
I was startled though, when some idiot a few houses down declared his love for his girlfriend at the top of his lungs. My eyes shot open and I almost slipped off the roof.
"Moron…" I searched the sky above and around me, till my eyes locked onto something racing across the sky.
A shooting star? You're supposed to wish on those, right?
I'd done more childish things then wish on a star, so why not go for it?
"I wish someone would fall for me and love me forever." I whispered, thinking that if I said it too loudly somebody might hear me. Telling someone your wish was totally a deal breaker. I think…
I watched the star fade from the sky, feeling calmer and more at peace than I had minutes before. I felt completely at ease.
I carefully made my way back to my window, slipping back into my room. Pulling the window shut before making my way to my bed. The moment my head hit the pillow, I fell asleep.

I'd spent the rest of my weekend doing basically nothing. Normally this probably would have pissed me off because I liked having somewhere to be or people to hang out with, but this weekend I felt too relaxed to do more then lay around the house.
Of course all weekends must come to an end, no matter how wonderful they are.
"Emma, are you up yet? Hurry or you'll be late for school!" My mom called from the kitchen. I lifted my head from the pillow to look at my clock.
I launched myself off of my bed and towards my closet. After throwing some clothes on I raced down the stairs, almost slipping and cracking my head open. That would have been a great way to start the week.
My mom had made some toast and I hastily grabbed it before heading for my car. My mom shook her hair in disapproval as I passed her and I shrugged in response.
On the way to school I had just enough time at stoplights to get a brush through my hair and apply a small amount of makeup.
I parked in the same general area that I always do. I tossed my backpack over my shoulder and sprinted towards my locker.
Judging by the amount of teens still in the hallways, it looked like I wasn't going to be late to my first period class.
That is, until I collided with some poor girl turning a corner.
We both fell to the ground, with me somehow being unfortunate enough to be at the bottom of a now tangled pile of limbs. I'd hit my head on the way down and I immediately reached for it, groaning in pain.
"Damn… that hurt" I grumbled. I looked down at the girl who was currently splayed out on top of my body. She had a pained frown on her face and her eyes were closed as she winced.
"I'm really sorry about that, are you okay?" I asked while trying to get up, but finding it difficult when the weight on top of me wasn't doing the same.
"It's… okay. I'm alright." She answered softly, finally opening her eyes. Her eyes locked onto mine and she suddenly froze. I could tell that she had stopped breathing as well and that kind of freaked me out. She didn't move and all I could do was squirm underneath her bright green eyes.
"Umm… anyway, I need to get to my locker so…" I choked out, hoping that she would get the message and get off.
No response. Her eyes were a bit out of focus and I was really starting to get freaked out. I cleared my throat, trying to get her attention. Thankfully this time she heard me.
"Oh! S-Sorry!" She immediately started to get off, a blush covering her lightly covering her cheeks.
"No problem" I said while pushing myself off of the ground. She stood there silently while I brushed off my clothes and picked up my backpack.
"The bell is about to ring, gotta get to class. Sorry again for running into you!" I started rushing down the hallway again, not really giving her any warning and yelling the last part over my shoulder. I hate to be a jerk, but I really didn't need another tardy for first period.
As I headed for the last door to the left in the hallway, I could still feel her eyes on me. Weird.
I'd have to apologize for running off like that if we ever crossed paths again. Now that I thought about it, I'd basically committed a hit and run.
What a wonderful way to start the week.
