Love Story

Chapter 1

Clash between two families

My name is Ella Smyth. I'm 16 years old, I have long brown hair and gray eyes, I have unidentical twin brother named James.

He has blond hair and gray eyes just like my father.

Today is our first day in Manhattan Private high. It's the best school in the whole state.

I was nervous because I didn't know what waited for me in this school. I tried to control myself by taking deep breaths but when I looked down at my hands they were shaking and sweating uncontrollably while my stomach felt like it was tied in a knot.

I tried to clean the sweat with my navy blue skirt that I had to use as a uniform along with a white bottom up shirt, long white socks, black shoes and a navy blue tie. My brother had everything the same except he was wearing pants.

With the corner of the eye I glanced at my brother to notice that he was smiling. Sometimes I wished I was more like him and my father. They were both out going, friendly, confident… while I was serious, shy, and antisocial.

"We're here" Edward, our personal driver said from the front.

My father had hired him because he didn't like us driving alone and also because he had the money since he's hotels were so famous.

"Thanks Ed" My brother said as he jumped out of the car and ran inside leaving me alone.

"Thank You Edward" I whispered and shyly made my way in.

After I looked for my homeroom and my locker and I went to find my childhood best friend Jake.

"Hey Ella! Over here" I saw him standing beside a locker that I guessed it was his.

"Hey Jake" I said with a smile.

"I'm so glad you're here" He said as he wrapped his arms around me and hugged me.

"Jake please let me go… you know I don't like being hugged" I said and he led me go.

"Right … I forgot" He grinded. "So did you find out which one is your first class?" He asked.

"Earth Science" I said as I glanced down the schedule in my hand.

"Damn… I have world history" He said.

"That mean we aren't together?" I asked.

"That about right" He said with a shrug. "But you'll do great on your own… you'll see" He said trying to cheer me up.

"Just promise me you won't leave me alone in homeroom or I shall die and then come back and hunt you until you die as well" I said with a glare.

"I promise" He said with a grin.

"Thanks!" I said returning a smile.

On the other side of the lockers I notice a guy with black hair and green eyes stared at me while we talked. By his eyes I could tell that he was a Lewis. A family's who my family hates.

"What's wrong" Jake asked.

"Nothing… I just didn't know there was Lewis in this school" I said as I tried to stop glaring at the guy.

"Please don't tell me you're still on that? Come on Ella, that's not even your fight. I bet that it was some old Smyth guy that hated a Lewis guy and decide to make up a story so that everyone in the family would hate them" Jake said with a shrug making me raise my eyebrow.

"Um… The Lewis are enemy's of our family because they are our competition" I said.

"Oh… anyway it still doesn't mean YOU have to hate them" He said.

"If I was even friends with one, it would be like betraying my family" I defended my idea.

"Sure, sure. I just wonder what if one of your family married one of them?" He asked with a smirk.

"That would never happen!" I bowed making him laugh.

"I'm just saying Ella, It might happen" He said.

"Whatever… I have to go to class. I'll see you at lunch" I said and walked away without giving the Lewis one last glare.

The Lewis that I had notice was a senior named Jack, who was known as a player. Every week he would pick up a girl and fool around until he had enough.

Since he had already been with everyone in the school, he decided to play with the new girl.

"Dude she just got to school. Can you give her a brake?" A blond male named Ben who was Jack's best friend as watched me walk away along with Jack who followed me with his eyes hungrily.

"I can't waist time. If I wait she would hear about my 'rep' and that would mean that it's going to be harder" Jack said as he looked back at his friend.

"You know… one of this days you'll really like someone and you're not going to have her" Ben said.

"Me? Fall for someone… good one Ben" Jack laughed and hit his friends back. He believed he was smart enough to keep his heart locked away and never get it hurt.

It was my first day and I already had drama after me. I didn't care for it.

Classes past by quickly, and before I knew it was lunch time.

Like promise Jake sat with me and introduced me to his friend Clare. Clare looked like the kind of friend I would have. She funny, outgoing and really nice.

She, along with Jake catch me up on the school and it's rules but I had stopped for a brake and go to the bathroom.

"I'll take you" Clare said and we both went to the bathroom.

When I was finished I was asked by Clare to wait for her in the door of the bathroom while she went to get a soda.

While I was waiting someone poked my shoulder. When I turned around I found myself right in front of Jack.

"Hello my name is Jack…"

"Lewis I know" I said.

"Oh so you know me?" He asked with a smirk making my blood bubble with fury. Lewis were known by their cocky smirk and it angered me that he was smirking at me.

"Yeah I know you and your kind" I said.

"Hey what's with the attitude baby" He said as he laid his hand on my shoulder. I quickly slapped his hand away.

"Get your hands off me" I yelled.

"What's wrong with you?" He asked.

"My name is Ella Smyth and I don't enjoy your company or your name" I said.

"Oh please don't tell me that your one of those Smyth's that hate my family because our hotels are in the same rate?" He asked as he laughed.

"Yes" I said.

"Well that is just stupid" He said

"Like I care what you think" I said. "Now walk away and leave me the fuck alone" I said.

"Fine" He said and walked away with a smirk in his face. I thought I wouldn't have to deal with him the rest of the year while he took everything as a challenge.

"Ella?" I heard Clear say from behind me.

"Oh hey… there you are" I said with smile.

"Were you talking to that guy?" She asked.

"No" I said.

"Oh ok" She said with a smile and we made our way back to the lunch room.

"What took you so long anyway?" I asked.

"Oh I just got… busy" She said with a blush. I notice it right away but I decide not to push her. I was still a little angry thanks to the jerk but I wanted to forget about him and keep on with the day.


After a long day at my new school I finally got home. "How was school?" I heard my mom ask as soon as I stepped inside.

"It was fine" I said and ran up to my room without another word. As soon as I got to my room I locked the door behind me and sigh.

I look around my room, flawless as always. I slowly made my way to my porch that my dad had order made for me when we first moved here where I always sat alone with my thoughts. It always made me feel better after I thought about my day.

Little did I know that someone was already waiting for me in my porch.

When I open the white doors of my porch I found Jack sitting in one of the ends smirking at me. "This is where you live? Nice" He said.

"What are you doing here?" I asked.

"I just thought I paid you a visit" he said.

"There is no need… Leave" I ordered him.

"No… I'm having fun" He said.

"What do you want from me?" I asked.

"You know what I want" He said as he lowered his eyes while his smirk spread.

"It's not going to happen… so you better give up" I said. He got off the edge and made his way to where I was.

"I don't think so… You see I always get what I want and I what I want is you" He whispered in my ear. A shill ran down my spine as his lips slowly made their way to mine. He softly brushed the tip of his lips trying to tease me, so I could kiss him.

"Get away from me" I yelled as I tried to push him away. A smirk appeared on his lips as he notice a blush on my cheeks.

"The trap is set… it won't be long until you're in my arm begging for more" he whispered but I was to in shock to hear him. With that said he jumped off the porch and left.

I let myself fall on the floor as I touched my lips softly with the tip of my fingers. There was something about him that made my body numb. When he brushed his lips with mine… it made me want more.
