Hi Neighbor!

Katie's P. O. V.

I walk in my house after a long tired day at school. God these teachers are really incarnations of devil. Why do they give us so much homework? Why do they even exist?


"Mom----" I yell but then remembered. Ya right, my mum's not at home because she is busy at the hospital. I sigh as I drop my satchel near the staircase and jump on the couch. I sigh as I roll my eyes. I scratch my forehead as I grab the remote of the television and switch it on. Sliding my hand inside my jacket pocket and taking out my favorite snack- skittles and start munching them.

I yawn not even bothering to even look at the television. Well you would think it's unusual not watching the reruns of TVD7 but for me it's kind of normal. I mean, God, what's the point of showing Damon without Elena? Right? And I really hate this Sybil and Seline plot. It is so pointless. And kinda boring..

What matters is the promise my mother made me yesterday. Mother-daughter hanging out today after school. She promised me to take a break from her work today. And guess what? She didn't.

It's true then! What everyone says, promises are meant to be broken. Even though I'm not at all broken as it's everyday that my mum breaks her promises, but ya I'm a little sad.

I shrug my shoulders and to distract myself, I brought my phone to my face to check the messages and instagram feeds and ....facebook. What? Just because I am a nerd that doen't mean I won't have a social media account. Right?

I look through my messages.

Only one.

Yippee, I'm popular. Do note my sarcasm.

Hey, you free?.. - Babe Beth.

Ya, why?.. - Katie Holes.. (me).

I'm coming in few minutes.. - Babe Beth.

Ok.. - Katie Holes.

I yawn once again as I put my phone back in my pocket and get up. I stretch my body and walk to the stairs up to my room ... for a hot shower.

Wait a sec, was I even telling you about my life? Or was I just cribbing about how less my mother spends time with me? Ugh... I definitely know that I was talking about the latter.

s**t!! How could I ... I sigh as I walk to my closet.

Well I am Katienne Joanna Holes. You can call me Katie. I'm a nerd but not the ones we read or watch. That's because I don't wear glasses and I'm not at all interested in books, except novels. But I still get As in all my subjects and I'm good in volleyball. One thing similar between me and a full nerd, I'm not popular. I have is just one friend and that's Bethany Reynolds aka Beth... ya ya the one who is coming to the house. Bethany is all opposite of me. She is a blond beauty hidden behind a pair of ugly glasses. Her blue eyes are more beautiful than my dark brown eyes. Plus she is intelligent as compared to me.

Beth and my mom are the most important part of my life. And please don't ask about dad, because I don't know him. I haven't seen him or met him personally and I'm not dying to do the same. He was the person who left my mom alone when she got pregnant with me. Instead of taking care, he left just left. Like I like to say he was just a sperm donor. He was a loser and I hate him. That's the reason why I don't trust boys at all; what if you let a guy get close to you, let him know you inside and out ... and when you think he is the one, you believe he is the one ... he just leaves. hanging you in between and won't even care whether you are pregnant or not, whether you truly love him or not. He will just leave.

I strip from my clothes and step into the shower head and turn the faucet. I let the water touch my skin and I relax.

My grandmother, Nana, helped my mom during her difficult times. Nana even took care of me when mom would go for work, Nana became my second mother. Unfortunately, she died four years ago, when I entered my teenage years and when I got my first period. Yuck, why am I even discussing about my monthly cycle.

After finishing with a hot shower, I wrap my body with a towel and walk out of the bathroom. Wearing my undergarments I take my clothes out. A podka-dot crop top and shorts. Combing my frizzy hair into soft and shiny high ponytail and applying a bit of eyeliner and lip-gloss, I smile at my reflection.

Just then the bell rings. She is here. My bff. I smile at my reflection one last time and walk out of the room, descending the stairs.

"Hey babe." She says as I open the door and she looks gorgeous as ever. "Hi!!.." I say back and smile at her as we hug tightly and she enters the house. She sits on the couch in the living room as I sit beside her. "So? What are you doing?"

"Nothing." I answer. "Just watching the reruns, you kno----" I lie and she nods. She always believes all of it, all my lies I tell her when I don't want to tell her something. What can I say? I'm a potential liar. Just then she squeals bringing me back to the reality.

"Bethany?" I raise my eyebrows.

"There is a news. A big one." Beth says.

"What?" I ask.

"There is a rumor that someone popular is shifting!" Beth says and wink at me. "Who?" I ask raising my eyebrows. She wriggles her eyebrows suggestively and winks at me. Just then I groan. "Oh not that person."

"Yess... that person!"

"She hates me. She has already ruined my life----"

"Wait, what? A she?" Beth asks as we both look at each other confusingly.

"Wait whom are you talking about?" We ask together as we stare at each other.

"Megan." "Aaron." We answer together. Again. Ugh.

"What???" My eyes widen ... shock of the yea---- Just the bell interrupts our conversation. I get up rolling my eyes. "This is not over yet..." I whisper to her as I walk towards the door. I walk down the hallway and open the door only to stare at a guy, I guess of my age, look down at me and then he smirks. He is probably of 6'4 and I'm just 5'4... He is so better looking than me. His loose shirt shows his abs perfectly. Hot. His hair all ruffled on a side. Cute. His eyes, oh my my. His rosy pink lips look so inviting.

Wait a minute why am I thinking this!?. Just then his gray eyes met mine, he smirks.

"Babe if you want to sleep with me all you need to do is ask." He smirks as a smirk plays on his lips.

"Excuse me?" I ask raising my eyebrows.

"Excused baby." he says sarcastically and smirking. I roll my eyes and frown.

"Who the hell are you? And what the hell do yo----" I ask frowning at him. Before he could answer I hear my best friend squeals as she comes and stands beside me. "Beth?" I say as I raise my eyebrows at her. But, as usual she's busy checking him out while he's smirking at me, as if people staring at him is normal.

"Beth?" I ask again a louder this time and able to catch both their attentions. "Ya...."She says dreamily and looking at him. His smirk gets wider which is annoying me now.

"Do you know this obnoxious good-for-nothing guy?" I ask as both look at me as if I just do not belong to the Earth, as if I have come from Venus.

"Don't tell me... You don't know him? " Beth asks shockingly.

I face-palmed as I roll my eyes. I stare at her deadpanned. "Duh." Beth shrugs her shoulders knowing arguing with me is useless and pointless. She sighs. "He is - - - -"

"Hi, neighbor. I'm Aaron Lockwood.. " he interrupts my best friend as I look at him from her. His smirk widens. Beth smiles at him, looking dreamily at him as I stare at him in shock.

What The Hell!!!!!
