Heart Break
Chapter One
The early sun rose, waking me up from my deep slumber. I stirred, unaware of the time. Sitting up, I rubbed my eyes and looked at the clock. Then I jumped up, suddenly fully awake. It was 8:30! I had to be at school by 7:00! I got ready, skipping breakfast. Then I threw on some shoes and ran to school.
I arrived at 9:00, but the doors were already locked. I had to buzz in.
~”Hello?”~ A voice buzzed in.
“Hi, it’s Ashley Holmer, 6th grade, Mrs. Lillian’s class, sorry I am tardy.”
~”Alright Miss Holmer, don’t let it happen again! Come in.”~
There was a buzzing sound, and the doors to Penny Lane Middle School opened. I sighed, and ran to my class.
I got to my class, which is on the 3rd floor. Mrs. Lillian sighed when I knocked on the locked classroom door and called someone to open it while she wrote on the board. The board said:
Ashley Holmer: Tardy III
Oh no! I had my third tardy in a week! I sat down, sheepishly. Mason tapped me.
“It’s fine. I had 8 last year. You get detention once you hit 5. From there it adds on every mark. You’re fine now.” I smiled.
“Mason! Really! Another tally for talking, Miss Elizabeth!” Mrs. Lillian spoke firmly, then wrote:
Mason Elizabeth Rodgers: Talking: 22
Mason thought nothing of what her teacher had written on the board. She thought it was all baloney.
Class dragged on, homeroom, to Science, to Spanish, to Math. When math ends, the best part of class starts: RECESS! We all shoot out the doors and onto the field! Morgan and I shoot straight towards the benches, the only place that’s completely deserted and has warmth on a cold winter day like today.
“Ashley,” Mason said, looking nervously into my eyes, “I have to tell you something.”
“What is it?” I encouraged her excitedly, nodding.
“I...I have…. I have a new boyfriend!” Mason said. I got up and screeched with joy! I did seven cartwheels, and spinned for almost 2 minutes! Then, I staggered back, “Who...who is it, M-M-M-Mas-s-on-n?” I asked, disoriented and dizzy.
“It’s, it’s Turner!” She said happily. I wasn’t dizzy anymore. I stood up, furious, “WHAT?!?!”
