Chapter 1: ENEMIES

Katie rushed around her room trying to find something to wear. She had to be at school in thirty minutes and she still wasn't dressed. To her relief she found a pair of faded hip hugger jeans and a black tank top. She quickly changed into her fresh clean clothes and put on a pair of platform Sketchers. She looked at herself in the mirror and was pleased with her appearance.

She had long blonde hair with brown streaks. People said all of the time that she had the perfect weight and honestly she was quite content with her weight. She had blue-green eyes that she wasn't too fond of, but didn't dwell on it. She was happy with her height too, standing at 5'5". She didn't need to wear platform shoes considering she stood at an average height, but she just plain loved them. Some people might say that she is conceited, but she looks at it this was... most people complain about how they don't like their looks and wished they looked like someone else while she likes how she looks and feels lucky that she can say that about herself.

She quickly went into the bathroom and brushed her hair one more time. She then put on a little make-up consisting of a little foundation, eye shadow and lip-gloss. She believed that make-up was a necessity, just not to over do it. She looked at her appearance one more time before heading to school.

About ten minutes later she was at school and smiling at anyone who smiled at her. She was pretty popular and loved every minute of it. She was ina pretty good mood today so nothing seemed to be able to bring her down. That was until she saw Matt standing by his locker with his friend Damien just a few feet away from her. They have known each other for years and have hated eachother since the day they met. She thought he was pretty hot, but too bad his personality had to get in the way.

As she walked she studied him closely. He had short black hair, which he spiked and the most beautiful blue eyes she has ever seen. He stood at approximately 5'8" and a half. He has a small frame, but she could tell that he has a nice body. She noticed for the first time that he had full lucious lips, she had to admit that she found that attractive. She had always liked his smile, but had never paid attention to his lips until now. He had a nice smile when it was genuine, which it rarely is cause it's always so mocking. She's only seen him smile genuinely twice and both times weren't directed at her.

As she was walking by she saw him fold his arms across his chest and smirk. * Damn why does he have to be so sexy?* She thought.

"What are you staring at ice queen? See something you like?"

Now she remembers why she can't stand this asshole. Why did he have to be such a smartass all of the time?

"In your dreams." She shot back.

He smirked, "You actually think you're worthy of my dreams?"

Katie just glared at him as she continued walking to her locker. Why did he have to be so arrogant all of the time? He loved making rude remarks, he knew they got under her skin.

Once she reached her locker she opened it and roughly threw a few things inside. She was no longer in a good mood unfortunately and it was all because of him.

"Hey Katie." Crystal said as she approached her best friend.

"What." Katie yelled angrily.

"Whoa, what's wrong with you?" Crystal asked raising her hands in surrender.

"Sorry Chris, I didn't mean to blow up at you. Matt is being an ass so I got a little upset."

"When isn't he being an ass?"

"Good point." Katie said with a sigh.

"Why do you let him get to you? Everything that comes out of his mouth is bullshit anyway."

"I know, but I can't help it. He knows how to get under my skin and takes advantage of it."

"Well you need a break from him."

"That would be nice."

"Well Brian and I are going to my parents cabin for Spring Break, he's bringing his cousin who I haven't met yet so why don't you come along?"

"I don't know Chris." Katie said feeling hesitant.

"Come on please, it'll be fun."

Katie considered this for a moment and then smiled. "Alright sounds like a plan, when are we leaving?"

"Tomorrow morning."

"Okay I'll just stay at your house tonight so you don't have to pick me up."

"Great!" Crystal said happily.

They both went their separate ways from there. Katie went to her English class and found a seat before the bell rang. She sat there pretending to listen to the teacher when Matt walked through the door. The teacher gave him detention for being late and then told him to sit down. It was just her luck that the only open seat left was right next to her. He smirked and then sat down, slumped lazily in his chair. She groaned in frustration, what did God have against her?

She decided to ignore him and pay attention to the teacher for once. It was better than having to deal with him. The only problem with that was she couldn't concentrate, she could feel his eyes on her and it was annoying the hell out of her.

"What?" She asked low enough so the teacher wouldn't hear her, but loud enough so he could.

"I just find it funny."

"Find what funny?"

"How you'll pay attention to what the teacher is saying just so you don't have to deal with me."

Her mouth hung open in shock, how did he know her so well?

"Did it ever accure to you that I actually want to get a good grade?" She asked defensively.

"You HA!" He said laughing slightly.

"Why is that so hard to believe?"

"Cause I know that the one thing we have in common is that we don't give a shit about our grades."

Katie opened her mouth to object, but then realized that he had her so she did the only thing that came to her mind; she told him to shut up. After she said that she quickly turned her attention to her notebook, but she could tell that he had a smirk on his face. He knew he had won and she hated him for it. Why couldn't she win just once? Was that too much to ask for? She really hated him! For being such and arrogant asshole all the time and for being able to get under her skin so easily. She just couldn't wait for the day to end cause then tomorrow she'd be going to a cabin for Spring Break and that meant a break from Matt Harris.
