Hey everyone reading this! So I not really sure about this story, I've got 26 pages of it already but I'm not sure whether to continue it or not and post it here. So I'm asking you guys to read it and just let me know whether you would be interested in reading it or not
I ran through the woods trying to lose whoever or whatever was chasing me, I was separated from my friends but I couldn't do anything other than run into the darkness ahead of me not knowing what would happen. One tree root made my life flash before my eyes and the dark shadow lunged at me.
"Allison, wake up you're going to be late!" I shot up in my bed breathing heavily. I had never been affected this much by a dream but I had this feeling that something terrible was going to happen. "Ally, did you not hear me? You're going to be late, come on you don't want to miss your last day of high school now do you?" My mother opened my curtains and let in a ray of sunshine which almost blinded me.
"Yeah okay I'm getting up." I slowly got up out of my bed covering my eyes from the bright light that my room was covered in. If it were any other day I would have tried to go back sleep but it was a special day, like my mother said it was the last day of high school. Unlike America we leave school at 16 and then start college in September.
As it was the last day before the summer holidays really started it was non-uniform day so instead of wearing the boring old grey skirt, white shirt, black blazer and red tie that we always had to wear, we got to go in our owns clothes. I wasn't one of them people who dressed up for non-uniform day I just went in what I would wear on any other day, my favourite pair of dark skinny jeans, my favourite red checked shirt which I wore open over a white or black tank top (that day I wore white) with my black converse. I had blond hair which I wore just past my shoulders. Makeup wise I did my green eyes outlined with eyeliner but not much, just added a little flick at the top like I always do and then just coloured in my waterline on my bottom eyelid and added mascara and a little lip gloss. But of course before I did any of that I had my breakfast and brushed my teeth. My mum actually had time to cook me breakfast before she dashed off to work that morning, it's not like she was a bad mum or anything but she was always working so I hardly got to see her, my mum had short black hair with brown eyes, she was a small person, me and my brother use to tease her about it all the time; my dad was way out of the picture since I was a baby and my brother who is 18 (my half-brother but his dad is out of the picture as well) spends most his time over at his mates houses and the time he is at home we just fight. My brother was really tall with a Mohawk which he was always dying bright colours, he had it red then.
"Bye mum!" I got a wave as a reply so I just headed out without saying anything else. Just as I was half way up the street my ring tone (which was Sum 41 Walking Disaster) rang, on the caller idea I saw that it was one of my best mates Morgan Bloom, I met her half way through year 7. She had long black hair and brown eyes and she was always smiling! "Yo hoe, what's up?"
"Where are you?" She screamed down the phone at me.
"Well good morning to you to. I just got out my house I woke up abit late." I shrugged my shoulders even though she couldn't see.
"Well hurry up because the leavers mass starts in like 15 minutes."
"Oh wow I sure don't want to miss that now do I" I said sarcastically.
"No you don't, it's also the awards assembly. JJ is getting one for that 4 course meal she did for her food GCSE and we all promised we wouldn't ditch assembly." JJ was my other best mate, she was from Kenya and had black hair with really dark brown eyes; she was genuinely a happy person and was hardly ever sad.
"Shit yeah. Okay I'll try and hurry but I'm going be late, remember I live 30 minutes away from school by car and I have no ride so I'm gonna be a little late, save me a seat though! Talk to later bye." I hung up the phone after she said bye and looked around. I was only by the shops around my area, not even into the next town; but then I saw Landon just coming out of his house with his dirt bike helmet. Landon was a friend of ours who we met up town messing around, we accidently hit him on the head with a bottle but he was cool about it, he just turned 18 so of course he can drive. At first my mum wasn't very happy with a 16 year old hanging out with an 18 year old but she realised that it's only two years difference and she hung around with 19 year olds when she was my age so she couldn't really say much. "Hey Landon!" I shouted waving over at him.
"Hey Ally, shouldn't you be in school already?" Landon treated me as a little kid because he knew it annoyed me.
"Yeah but I woke up late. Shouldn't you be in college?"
"We broke up yesterday; I am now a free man! No more education for me." I laughed at the ridiculous look on his face, he had this huge goofy grin and his chocolate brown eyes were wide with excitement. He had brown hair which he wore spiked; to be honest I didn't know why he bothered spending time spiking his hair up when it would get flattened again.
"You're not going university?"
"Nope, I'm gonna take over my dad's bike shop. I've already got a job there and the pay is decent so I don't see the point." He climbed onto his bike and put the keys into the ignition ready to start.
"Got it all sorted out then. So you are going work now then?"
"Nope, just going to go for a run. Mum was going mental at dad again." Landon's mum and dad were always fighting; his mum would always say that his dad loved his work more than he loved her.
"Oh. Can I ask for a huge favour?" I put my hands behind my back and used my awesome puppy dog eyes.
"Let me guess, you want a ride to school?" He laughed.
"Please." I dragged the word on and smiled sweetly.
"Sure, I don't see why not. Here." He handed me his black helmet and gestured for me to get on the back.
"Yay thanks. Hey shouldn't you be wearing a helmet as well, it's dangerous." I said climbing onto the back of his red dirt bike.
"I've only got that one and you're just a kid so you should wear it." He laughed and I smacked him on the arm.
"I am not a kid!" I put the helmet on while he was still laughing. "Oh just shut up and drive!" I held on to the back when I heard the roar of the engine starting. I loved the feeling of being on the back of a bike, I just felt so free. We got there in 20 minutes so I was only 5 minutes late for the assembly, Landon dropped me of at the front of the school; it looked like I was the only person late that day. "Thanks Landon I owe you one!" I took the helmet of and handed it to him.
"Any time, and don't worry I won't forget about you owing me." He winked and laughed.
"Of course. Thanks again bye!" He shouted bye as I ran down the path to the school and in the front doors. I signed in at the front desk getting a dirty look from the bitchy receptionist. She told me to go straight to the mass so I walked up the stairs that lead to the hall.
I opened the door and everyone turned to look at me, I looked around to see an empty seat by Morgan, next to her was JJ then Crystal, Tara, Amanda, Laura, Alex and then Ella. I went to the empty seat next to Morgan and Smiled at them all. The mass was pretty boring, the head teacher, Mrs Brook, said to us all how we were on our way on our journey through life or something like that. I blanked through most of it but clapped and cheered. After the mass we were allowed to do what we wanted as lessons were cancelled because it was our last day of high school. We went to some benches on the grass at the back of the school.
"So Ally, how did you get here so quick and why have you got helmet hair?" Amanda asked me, Amanda was one of them friends which sometimes were really nice and you got along really well with her but then you could just fall out over some stupid thing and end up hating each other for a while. She had long blonde hair and blue eyes.
"I have helmet hair! Oh god" I took my phone out of my jean pocket and used it as a mirror to sort my hair out. All my friends just laughed at me.
"Ally, you didn't answer my question."
"Oh yeah I got a ride of Landon." I shrugged my shoulders.
"Did you now." Morgan said in a voice which sounded like she was trying to imply something.
"Yeah I did. He was just helping out a friend." I started twirling my hair around my finger.
"Oh my god look! She's twirling her hair!" Tara shouted. Her and Morgan looked at each other and then had huge smiles on their faces.
"Oh Landon I love you so much! Thank you for giving me a ride on the back of your bike it was so nice of you!" Morgan put on a high voice and giggled.
"No problem Ally ya know I would do anything for you." Tara changed her voice so it was very low and tried not to laugh.
"Cut it out you guys I only like him as a friend! I said smacking them both on the arm. Yeah but you think he's fit." Morgan wiggled her eyebrows.
"So what? It doesn't mean I like him!" I laughed.
"Yeah well we all know you do." JJ spoke up sticking her tongue out.
"Yeah no matter how much you say you don't we will always say you do." Alex added on. Alex was one of the quiet ones of the group, she was from the Philippines and had black hair and brown eyes and she wore glasses. Next to her was Ella who was just nodding her head, Ella was Chinese and she had black hair as well and brown eyes.
"Aww my mother loves Landon." Laura laughed. Laura was my pretend daughter; she had died blond hair, which use to be brown and blue eyes. Crystal was laughing silently next to Laura, She was from Zimbabwe and had short black hair and brown eyes.
"Okay I do not 'love' Landon so can we all change the subject now." I said laughing.
"Okay, Okay. Hey we've got camping tomorrow, Matt is bringing all the booze." My friends and I had organised a camping trip after school had finished, to start of the summer with. It was me, Morgan, JJ, Laura, Jamie (Laura's boyfriend) Matt (Morgan's boyfriend) , Crystal, Landon and two of his mates Eric and Jacob.
"Yeah ok, Jamie is actually bringing something as well." Laura spoke quietly.
"Well what's he bringing?" I asked curiously.
"Well..." Laura started but then got interrupted when Megan came running up to us saying that all year 11's had to go to the hall. We made our way over and to everyone's dismay we all had to go to our normal Friday lessons because of some inspection. So me and Amanda headed to our period 2 lesson which was math, it wasn't too bad considering the teacher couldn't control the class so we did no work and we had a sub teacher that day anyway so we just talked.
"Wow, I can't believe this is our last day of high school." Amanda said in a sad voice.
"I can't believe it's our last day of high school and we are in a lesson." I moaned.
"At least we don't have to do any work."
"I suppose so." I placed my head in my hands.
"So hey you better be careful when you go camping." I looked up at Amanda and gave her a confused look.
"Well I don't know just you seen the horror movies aint you. Bunch of kids goes camping at the beginning of summer and BAM they get attack by some weird creature or a psychopath who wants cut them all into little pieces." She banged the table on the word bam causing the teacher to tell us off. After he looked away again I started talking.
"That's in the movies though isn't it, it's not like it's going happen in real life." I laughed. Just then the bell rang signalling its break.
"Well just be careful you never know who's about in woods." I nodded my head walking over to the others and smiling.
"Hey guys, how was class?"
"Boring, I can't believe we have to stay in class all day it's so boring!" JJ whined. Just then we heard a bike engine on the path on the opposite side of the fence, Morgan went to look through the bars and then a huge grin appeared on her face.
"Ooh Ally, Landon is here."
"What? Are you serious?" I said jumping up and going to the fence but then I realised that I sounded eager to the others, "So what if he is." I went and sat back down on bench next to JJ.
"Ha sure yeah k." Morgan laughed at me. Landon pulled up by the fence and turned his engine off and pulled off his helmet.
"Morning ladies." Landon smiled at all of us and then he noticed Amanda's boyfriend, Mark (He's ginger and tall) and two of his friends who I don't know the names of. "Guys." He nodded at them and they returned it.
"So Landon what are you doing here?" Laura asked joining Morgan at the fence.
"Just thought I would stop by seeing as I have nothing else to do."
"Oh fair does." Laura laughed and so did Morgan.
"So Ally were you late or what?" Landon looked over to where I was sitting.
"Huh, oh yeah I was late." I said shrugging my shoulders.
"Ok, hey do you need a ride home as well?"
"No I'm fine thanks" I said with no emotion in my voice and not looking at him at all, "See you guys at dinner I'm going hand my locker key in."
"But we've still got the rest of the day to go where are you going put all of your stuff?" Amanda asked me confused.
"I'll chuck it." I said and started walking away, I heard Morgan shout me as I walked but I pretended not to hear her. To be honest I don't know why I was acting the way I was, I know my friends were just having a laugh with teasing me about him but it bothered me because, maybe I did like Landon a little bit but I didn't know it then; I was in denial.
