um hanging for my life, since I just jumped onto a MOVING TRAIN!
“jeesh, hurry up! You need to carry my shit.”
“coming.” I replied. I pulled myself forward to a safer part of the train and followed after my sister dragging her ridiculously heavy carry on bag behind me.
“Kaitlyn, I found us a compartment and… Who’s that” the girls pretty face shriveled up in disgust when she saw me.
“Oh don’t mind her Tay, she’s just our stupid sis- Uhh… I- I mean shes just our personal maid. If you need anything, just ask her.” Kalinda said staring at me with a look that said ‘you dare correct me.
I didn’t bother to protest or anything I wasn’t going to jeopardies my chances at Hogwarts, besides I had already come to terms that I was just an embarrassment to our family.
“Well, she looks positively feral! Does she even know what conditioner is?” Tay sneered. The three girls laughed and disappeared into the compartment shutting the door after them, leaving me all alone in the corridor.
Having nothing else to do or nowhere else to go, I decided to just sit down outside the door. On my way down I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the window. That Tay girl was right, I did look horrible. My hair was like straw and sat in a knotted birds nest at the nape of my neck, my skin was so dry it was almost flaky and I had dirt smeared on my face and arms even though I had made sure to wash before I came.
Sitting there all alone I couldn’t help but wish that just once I could be the princess, just once I could be the beautiful one. It was bollocks. I forced myself to stop thinking nonsense that I knew would never come true.
“Ithinkweshouldbrakeup…” I said the words very fast, crunching my face, waiting to the onslaught. This is the worst part of the relationships, but afterwards I always feel so relieved so I don’t mind doing it.
“Wh… WHAT!?” ah there it is… “YOUR BRAKING UP WITH ME?” she looked like she was hyperventilating “BUT WHY?”
“I’m just not feeling it anymore…” I replied, my hand flying to ruffle my hair.
The girl in front of me was now crying full on, black lines running down her face. If you ask me, I think its ridiculous, girls are so clingy honestly I had only been going out with Lorryn for a month, and now she was babbling like a new born goblin after seeing its face in a mirror.
One thing was for sure,
I had never been in love,
I never wanted to be in love
I was never going to be in love
And that’s how I wanted it.
“I HATE YOU, JAMES POTTER!” Lorryn screamed following with a bitch slap that im sure left a big red hand mark on my face. “IM GOING TO TELL EVERY ONE ABOUT YOU STUPID, BANG LIST!” she turned and started running out the door
Shit that could ruin me, why did I make that stupid list anyways
I ran after her, only to give up just before the end of the carriage door. Ah who cares if they see it, most people know about it anyways and the only people who would be offended are the slags.
I turned around heading to my compartment only to see a… rock? Haystack? It was big black and bumpy. I didn’t notice it while I was coming down…
Knelling down to get a closer look at it, and started poking the yellow part that must have been the hay part of it.
“wha-…?” it spoke.
“AHHAH!!” I fell over backwards. The rock/haystack wasnt a rock/haystack at all, but actually a girl, with her head between her knees.
“Ah, Sorry. I, um didn’t realize you were…” well this is Awkward, what do I say ‘sorry I didn’t realize you were human?’ somehow I didn’t think that would go down to well…
She hadn’t said anything. I looked to see her shocked face, her mouth slack, her eyes… her blue eyes. Her big, deep, ocean blue eyes. Eyes that I could stare into for hours… no, Years!
I was overwhelmed by the feeling a pair of eyes could make me feel. It was like nothing I had ever experienced in my entire life. And than I realized… in a matter of seconds I had done something that I had promised myself I would never do as long as I lived.
