This is what I dream of 4th year being like...the characters are based on my friends happy.gif

Chapter 1:

He came closer. I closed my eyes. Our lips were almost touching. I felt his breath on mine, then...

BZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
The alarm went off...

I slowly opened my eyes and roughly switched off the alarm. I threw myself back in bed and tried to get the dream back...after 15 minutes i knew it was no use.

"Leanne, get up. You don't want to be late for your first day of fourth year!" my mum shouted from the livingroom. I heard the door close and pulled myself off my bed. Then I realised the summer was over. It had been a boring summer as everyone had been on holiday but now they were all back and I would see them at school. I quickly put on my school uniform, helped my sister (Jenny) get ready for school and rushed out the house. I dropped Jenny off at her school and almost ran down the road to the school.

I walked in the school gates and it looked like nothing had changed...though I knew everything had changed. I felt a weird sensation, which I usually get when someone is watching me, and turned around. Luke was walking up the path to the school. I could feel myself blushing and i couldn't help smiling. He walked casually up with wind-swept bown hair and brown/green eyes and gave me a smile that made my heart race...I smiled back.

"Leanne!" Charlotte ran up to me with a big grin that could only mean one thing...she had came back ready for more torture. All through third year Charlotte had teased me about Luke. I began to see that this year was no different...

"Hi Charlotte. How was your summer" She replied with a faint grunt.

RIIINNNNNNGGGGGGG!!!
The bell rang...

French...one of the most boring subjecs on earth. Honestly. Why do they make us do it...well they don't make us but it's either that, SVS (full of neds) and XL (which is also full of neds). I think I'll take french as no ned in their right mind would pick it...I walk in the door and find myself in a new seat...beside one of the girls I hate (Eleanor, yeah weird I know...kinda suits her). As usual I finish within half the period and sit and doodle over my french jotter. Not much really. Just a self-portrait.

RIINNNNNNGGGGGGG!!!
Next period...finally.

Geography...a good subject if you get the right teacher. This year we're getting a new teacher...don't like the sound of that. I walk in and guess what...I've moved seats again. Lucky for me I'm sat at the front beside the door and right in front of the door leading to the other class. Miss Jamieson (the higher, "more advanced" geography teacher) walked through the door and happens to leave it open. I look through the door and go bright red. Luke is sitting at the other side grinning at me. Miss Jamieson comes over to me, grinning madly.

"Leanne, you've been moved into my class...aren't you lucky. We believe that you would benifit getting moved into my class. Is that ok?"

"Yeah." I walk through to the other class and stand awkwardly. "Ummm...miss. Where will I sit?"

"Oh. You can sit next to Luke. I'm sure he won't mind," I went over to the seat next to Luke and sit down. He smiled at me and turns round to his friends (who happen to be right behind him) and they start to laugh. He turns round and passes me a note. His expression changes from an amused one to a worried one. I open the note and feel myself going bright red...

Let me know what you think of it happy.gif

Chapter 2 is finally here...tounge.gif. It's a teeny bit offensive to neds so soz about that. Couldn't think of what else to say XD

Chapter 1 review...

"Oh. You can sit next to Luke. I'm sure he won't mind," I went over to the seat next to Luke and sit down. He smiled at me and turns round to his friends (who happen to be right behind him) and they start to laugh. He turns round and passes me a note. His expression changes from an amused one to a worried one. I open the note and feel myself going bright red...

Chapter 2:

...I can't believe it. My jaw drops open slightly...Luke sees my expression and begins to laugh. It says:

Leanne
I've got something very important to ask you. I'll come and get you after you've had your lunch so I can ask you.
Luke x


"So is that okay? If it's not we can meet up another time...it's just that i'm being pressured into asking quite soon." I reply with a nod...too shocked to say a single word. And it's not even that long. 3 measley (soz but can't spell at a time like this) letters. Y-E-S...yes. See not that hard. Wtf's wrong with me...

RIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!!!
Break. Awww...end of an awesome period wink.gif

Charlotte comes over and whacks me on the arm...it's quite sore actually. I guess I don't mind as much as I'm still shocked after that turn of events. I mean sure. He could just be asking me something about homework or whatever but...he wants to ask me in private.

"What happened I saw you come in and sit next to Luke and I know he gave you a note. What did it say?" I regain my ability to speak but decide not to use it. Instead I tap my nose and head off...avoiding Charlotte the whole of break. She'll only just get my hopes higher and then torment me.

RIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!!!
S.E...god why do you hate me

S.E. Another boring subject...I mean what's the point of this. We could find out all we need to know from our parents. No-one listens to the teachers so why do they bother making 2 whole lessons a week just for us to sit and doodle, day-dream or whatever the pupils and the everyday ned's tiny little minds, which can only be used for insults and occasionally an answer, can cope with. We get to watch a video, whay...kidding on. How boring. It's just actors acting out an "everyday" life. What they don't realise is that no-one actually lives like that. I go with the majority and sit and day-dream. The teacher glances in my direction once or twice but apart from that she doesn't seem to notice me...

RIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!!!
Finally...oh no. ENGLISH!

English. Another way for god torment me. As if Charlotte wasn't bad enough I have to have english 4 times a week. At least it isn't as bad as last year. I had it 5 times a week then. Most of the period the teacher talks about how important it is that we start practicing and learning quotes. Then we get into the fun part. I mean...there's got to be at least one bit that's fun. For me it's personal study. We've all *coughs* nearly finished our personal study so it's ready to learn but the teacher gives us a little bit extra time in class to complete it. Tom (Luke's friend) starts off by asking me how my summer was, blah, blah, blah and then gets into the more embarrassing questions...though I should know by now that he never asks anything without there either being another meaning or an awkward question follows it.

RIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!!!
LUNCH!...Tom got me out of doing any work wink.gif

Charlotte ran up to me and started moaning. At this point I've "switched off" or whatever they call it and ignore her. Luke came over and winked at me and then I unfortunately hear Charlotte moaning at me. Oh well...lunch will hopefully make up for it.

As usual Charlotte and I fight about whos turn it is to decide where it is we go for lunch. I win and she picks Greggs. We get in the lines and I hear someone coming up behind me. I turn round and guess who comes up. Luke. I feel myself going red again. It's like when it's a cold day and the heat is on but the heater's at your feet. The heat slowly creeps up towards the top of your head. I hate that feeling.

We get our lunch and wait for Luke. He comes out with a bit grin and leads me to the car park...we won't be disturbed there. He looks around him with a worried look and finally decides it's safe enough to talk.

"This is kinda hard for me to say...but I've been told to ask you if..." Tom runs round the conrner and takes Luke aside. I hear him whispering about me (an odd curse I have...though some might seem it as a gift...that no matter how far the distance, as long as it's within seeing distance, I can hear what people say about me). I don't hear much but I hear enough...(I'll use "---" for the bits I can't hear).

"Well can you ask Leanne---no wait ask her this---" that's all I hear...unfortunately. I wonder what they're going to ask. I glance over at them for a second and see Luke heading back towards me. I can feel my face slipping into a worried expression even though i'm trying hard not to. He smiles and it brings the smile back to my face. I can't help it...

"Leanne. I'm sorry about that. I'll just go ahead and ask before there are anymore interruptions. Well..."

Aha...I'm evil tounge.gif. Another cliffhanger *laughs evilly*. And there's a twist in the next chapter...and another cliffhanger. I will truly be evil after the next chapter tounge.gif. I welcome suggestions as well as comments. Any ideas on what the twist should be? Let me know how it was as well... grin.gif

grin.gif Decided to do chapter 3 cause I was bored. sad.gif unfortunately it might not be as good cause the other version deleted itself. You'll finally find out what Luke asks Leanne in this chapter...

"Leanne. I'm sorry about that. I'll just go ahead and ask before there are anymore interruptions. Well..."


Chapter 3:

"The thing is...I've been told to ask you to go on a date with one of my friends. He doesn't really know you that well as you are really quiet but he was hoping that on this date he could find out more about you. So he was hoping that you would go on a date with him on Saturday to the cinema. I've been told not to say names incase you don't give him a chance but as it's just a date to get to know you I don't see the point in that...I'll still respect their wishes and not say though. So will you go to the cinema with him? You can bring along a friend if you like. I'm sure he won't mind..." Luke went quiet. I nod (again I can't seem to say those 3 measly letters) and he gives me a contageous smile. He brings out a folded note which gives the details of the date (this has obviously been planned for a long time). He walks me to the benches where Charlotte and his friends are waiting for us. I ask Charlotte if she wants to come too and Luke says it's fine., she can come (too little dialogue to write down. Would prefer to just get onto the date scene)...

The next 3 periods and Friday go by really quickly. I don't remember anything that happened. It must have been funny. I must have been like a zombie not doing any work, walking around in a trace and staring at blank walls. Not that hard to imagine really...I do that most of the time grin.gif. Anyway it's Friday night and I'm really tired. Going to bed now...

BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
Mmmm...can't be bothered getting up.

I open my eyes and this time I'm more gentil with the alarm. I get up, get my breakfast...the usual stuff and get ready for the cinema. Nothing too special. Just my jeans, a t-shirt and trainers. I grab my phone, some money and head out the door.

I arrive at the train station a little early and decide to look out for everyone else that is coming. I turn round at every car that drives up and every person I hear shouting. It's quite fun but it's also quite annoying the amount of times I turn around. Luke, Tom and Charlotte arrive together (5 minutes late) and by this time I had turned round so many times I had given up tounge.gif.

"Hi Leanne. Tom is going to sit beside you at the cinema and I'll sit beside Charlotte. Me and you can go in the middle. Is that okay?" I nod (for the third time I can't say the measly letters. How many times do I have to do that) and we get our tickets. The train ride is quite boring. I'm stuck beside Tom and he's asking me the awkward questions again. Just my luck I have to sit beside him at the cinema. I look over at Charlotte and Luke and Luke's got his arm around Charlotte. Then I realise what's happened. Tom was my date eep.gif! Charlotte looks over and mouths a "sorry". She must have known all along!

We get to the cinema and decide to watch a comedy. The only problem is that they had got tickets for the screening in an hour rather than the one that started in 5 minutes so I had to speak to Tom. Great...this isn't my day. Luckily it's Luke that asks the questions and he only asks a couple of awkward questions. Not bad. Basically he's asking me stuff so he can find out more about my personality and so Tom doesn't "stuff it up" by asking awkward questions non-stop. The hour goes by quite quickly (probably cause i was staring at Luke the whole time answering his questions...yeah I know. I'm on a date with Tom but what's the harm tounge.gif. After all I don't like him in that way).

We get popcorn, get into our seats and have a laugh before the film starts. Luke puts his arm around Charlotte again (I don't see her trying to get out of it or at least looking awkward) and Tom decides that because Luke is doing it he sould put his arm around me sad.gif. Great...and I can't move away cause 1. I can't go anywhere because I'm in the middle of Luke and Tom and 2. it would hurt his feelings. I look at Luke and he looks a bit pissed off..and he's looking at Tom and me. Almost as if he didn't want Tom to put his arm around me. Luke takes his arm from around Charlotte and Charlotte looks annoyed...

"What are you doing Tom? You know that..."

I'm evil again tounge.gif. Another cliffhanger. Just couldn't help it. I promise in the next chapter I won't put a cliffhanger wink.gif

Decided to do chapter 4. No-one's commenting but it's fun to write them happy.gif

Chapter 3 review:

We get popcorn, get into our seats and have a laugh before the film starts. Luke puts his arm around Charlotte again (I don't see her trying to get out of it or at least looking awkward) and Tom decides that because Luke is doing it he sould put his arm around me . Great...and I can't move away cause 1. I can't go anywhere because I'm in the middle of Luke and Tom and 2. it would hurt his feelings. I look at Luke and he looks a bit pissed off..and he's looking at Tom and me. Almost as if he didn't want Tom to put his arm around me. Luke takes his arm from around Charlotte and Charlotte looks annoyed...

"What are you doing Tom? You know that..."


Chapter 4:

"I know what Luke? You're the one that arranged this date. If you didn't want it you shouldn't have arranged it. Now excuse me for trying to have a good time with my date." Tom trys to put his arm around me but I move away...towards Luke. Tom grabs my arm and the film starts. Charlotte stands up and tries to switch places with me...Tom doesn't let go of my arm and I have to twist to get out of his grasp. I get out of it and me and Charlotte switch places. I can feel a burn going around my arm where I had to twist to get out of Tom's grasp.

"What are you doing? You're suppost to be on a date with me!" I reply with a shrug and run to the toilets. I run to the mirror and look at the burn Tom gave me. It's bright red and you can see the finger marks Tom left sad.gif. Great! It can't get much worse than this! I touch it gingerly and cry out in pain. Guess it can get worse. I hear the door open and run into the nearest toilet i can find. I shut the toilet door just as the entrance door opens. I hear footsteps and someone knocking on every toilet door.

"Leanne. Tom says he's sorry. He didn't mean to hurt you. He was just..." I cut Charlotte off by running out of the toilets. I hide round the corner and hear Charlotte go back into the cinema. I can't help it but I begin to cry. It's not as if I can help it but it's just that Tom really hurt me sad.gif. After a couple of minutes I feel someone come and sit beside me. I didn't hear anyone come so I look up to see who it is. It's Luke.

"I'm sorry about this but...well I...I thought it was going to be different.I didn't realise that...well I'm really sorry that Tom hurt you and..." Luke trailed off. I could see he was feeling embarrassed for Tom acting this way I took pity on him and didn't ignore him.

"Listen it's not your fault that Tom hurt me," I try and cover up the mark Tom left but it's too late. Luke's seen it by now. His mouth slightly drops open and he startes to go red. I can feel him beginning to get awkward because he's gone all tense and is looking everywhere but me. Shame really. I hate to see him like this sad.gif.

"Why're you so embarrassed? It's me with the mark...and I don't mind too much. I'll get over the pain. Just stop getting embarrassed. It's not your fault!" He opens his mouth but nothing comes out so he just shrugs instead. It seems to have cheered him up though. He doesn't seem to feel as awkward as he did a moment ago.

"I think we should go back in Leanne. After all we've paid to see this film and we've missed almost half of it," we both get up at the same time and bump into each other. We're that close. I start to say sorry and the next thing I know we're kissing. I can taste the chocolate that Luke had earlier. Mmmm...tastes great. Luke puts his arms around and accidentally brushes agains't the mark Tom left. I cry out in pain again and Luke backs off looking really embarrassed. He's almost like a parrot as he can't stop saying sorry. I've never seen him like this before.

"Luke. It's ok. It was an accident. I know you didn't mean it. Mabey we should go in. Charlotte, who is your date remember, will probably be wondering what's taking you so long!" We both walk in and sit awkwardly in our seats. Tom and Charlotte can sense something's wrong. I don't think they want to ask because of what just happened. We watch the rest of the film and near the end Luke slips his hand into mine. I smile and he smiles back. The film ends, we get on the train and we all go our seperate ways...but one thing's for sure. I loved that date tounge.gif.

Woo...no cliffhanger. Been at summer school and it's amazing. It might take a while to get the next chapter up. Anyone any ideas on what i could do for the next chapter?

Well I'm doing chapter 5. I'm kinda going off school right now so I can concentrate on the relationships part of Leanne's life in this chapter...whether it's friends or crushes tounge.gif enjoy. Oh yeah...and some of the new characters might only be teenagers in my story. Gerard and Frank are in MCR and are obv not teenagers in real life tounge.gif

Chapter 4 review:

"Luke. It's ok. It was an accident. I know you didn't mean it. Mabey we should go in. Charlotte, who is your date remember, will probably be wondering what's taking you so long!" We both walk in and sit awkwardly in our seats. Tom and Charlotte can sense something's wrong. I don't think they want to ask because of what just happened. We watch the rest of the film and near the end Luke slips his hand into mine. I smile and he smiles back. The film ends, we get on the train and we all go our seperate ways...but one thing's for sure. I loved that date.

Chapter 5:

Luke comes closer. We're almost touching. Then we kiss. We hear a screech and look up. A vulture comes and grabs Luke by the shoulders. It carries Luke off to it's nest. This has turned from the best dream to my nightmare! Then I see a face on the vulture. I remember that face! I was at summer school with the guy that face belonged to but why you he haunt me in my dreams? Why is he carrying off Luke? So many unanswered questions.I run to the vulture/friend's nest and the cliff seems to grow taller with every step I take. The flor opens up and I can't carry on. The vulture/friend and Luke fly off into the distance...

BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!

I turn off the alarm and glide out of bed (no more rough mornings for me wink.gif). The first month of school went by really quickly. Me and Luke have been busy so we haven't had time to spend with each other but now we've got a break and it's time for our date grin.gif. We're going into town to a new restaraunt. It sounds really good. I find my best jeans and grab a t-shirt (he hates it when girls try too hard to look good on dates). I brush my hair and I am ready to go out the door when I remember my dream. I'm not going to let that happen. I double-check that I look okay and take a notebook to write down my dream...for future reference. Just incase I need it or something. After all I'm going to be early so I may as well take something to do. I casually glide down the street and wait at the train station. I begin to write down the details of the dream (the clothes I was wearing, what happened...stuff like that) when Luke walks through the door. We get our tickets, get on the train and head to the restaraunt.

We walk in the door and are meeted with breath-taking aromas. Chicken curry, chilli, you name it we were met with it. I had a good feeling about this place.

"Hello. I'm sorry we do not have any tables on their own but we do have a family table. You could squeeze in there until we get you another table. Please follow me," the waitress lead us to a family-sized table. Seated at the other end of the table were two couples obviously on their first date. About our age as well. The girl closest to us had long, dark blonde hair and blue eyes that were staring deeply into her dates hazel eyes. His hair was shoulder-length dark brown. The other girl had long borwn hair and blue eyes that were also staring deeply into her date's eyes. He had short black hair. The girls look away from their dates as we approach the table. We order and realise they are still look at us. The girl closest to us opens her mouth as if she's about to speak but her friends interrups her.

"Hi. I'm Alyssa and this is Paige. My bf is Gerard and Paige's is Frank. What's your names?" That started a long discussion and we found out that we all had lots in common with each other. My notebook falls out of my pocket and Alyssa picks it up. She hands it back to me and even though she doesn't ask I ca see it in her eyes. I quickly stuff it in my pocket. Luke gives me a questionable look but decides not to ask.

We finish our meal, say bye to Alyssa, Gerard, Frank and Paige, get their phone numbers and head back to the train station. Luke puts his arm around me and we go into the train station.

"LEANNE!!! Wait up!" I turn around and find myself coming face-to-face with the "vulture" of my dreams. Steven. We got really close after summer school. Not seen him for ages! He smiles and I feel myself blushing. WTF! I shouldn't be blushing. I've got a boyfriends...but I can't help it. He's got a really cute smile. Omg...sad.gif. Luke see's I'm feeling a bit awkward and puts his arm around me for comfort. Steven's smiles slowly fades from his face and he starts getting embarrassed. He starts muttering and gives me his phone number. Then he runs off to the toilets. Luke looks sorry for him and runs in after him. After 5 minutes they both come out looking happy. Luke's so amazing. we get on the train and head back home. Another perfect date...apart from Steven...

Finished chapter 5 wink.gif. Let me know what you think of it as usual. Though I doubt anyone will comment. Oh well...got a great plot line. I'll welcome any ideas though grin.gif
