A/N: Well, here is the second chapter! I've been really busy with cheer and homework so I couldn't get it out much faster! Sorry!

p.s. This Katie character is actually me. Same height, play the clarinet, in cheerleading, and my best friend is Bre...well, she spells it a different way, just like I spell my name a different way...anyway, on with the story!

Disclaimer: I own NOTHING. Except for Katie, Bre, and Ashlyn. and the plot :)



Band sucked. But, hey? What's new. You can only play the clarinet for so long before it gets so boring you want to chop your hands off. Yeah. I've considered it.

Sitting in band class though, your mind tends to wander. Mine went straight to Collin. Yeah, he's never been a playboy or anything but still. Why would he be interested in me? Ugh. Maybe it's a bet. I don't even know much about him; just the basics.

He used to play football. He likes asking people their favorite color. He is popular. He sits next to me in science. He's about as tall as a freaking bus. He's got gorgeous muscles. He has an amazing smile…okay. I've officially lost it.

Maybe its just a one time deal. Yep. That's it. He'll go back to his usual quiet self in science and I'll be fine. If you consider being ignored fine.

Oh. Crap. I just remembered. Oh no!

Collin. Is. In. My. Next. Class.

Great. Just wonder-freaking-tastic.

There is only one thing I can do. Ask for Bre's advice.

"Bre, Bre, Bre!" I yelled. Everyone in the band hall was looking at me like I've lost my marbles.

"What, what, what!" She yelled back as usual. I tend to say her name three times when I'm in need of boy advice. And she answers triple too.

When I got close to her I whispered my problem.

"Bre. Collin is talking to me. Whaddami gonna do?!" I yell/whispered. She just laughed.

"What the duck Bre! You're not supposed to laugh at my misery!" I yelled sorrowfully. Great. I'm glad my pain amuses her.

"Katie. You do realize that all he did was talk to you right. It's not like he's stalking you or taking pictures of you in your room." She rolled her eyes. Me and Bre have been besties since forever. And I can honestly say, she speaks her mind. And dresses it too. Today, she's wearing a purple shirt that says "I eat awesome…Don't worry, you're safe." Complete with a lime green dinosaur. She is also wearing purple converse and a black skirt with a bow on the top. (Picture on my profile)

I on the other hand, am a little more sensible with my clothing choices. I'm wearing blue sneakers with rhinestones on them, blue jean capris, and a blue shirt with the superman logo on it. I go for casual as you can see.

"Well…that's true, but STILL! I sorta kinda like him….maybe." I added at the end after seeing the look she gave me.

"Katie! This is great!" She yelled. Completely forgetting that we were trying to keep quiet. Trying being the key word apparently.

"Shhh! It's not great! I don't know what to do!" I whined. I'm just so confused!

"Okay, just go in there and knock his socks off!" She then proceeded to push me into algebra.

"Umph!" What, did she push me into a wall or something?!

"Oh! Are you okay Katie?" Of course. Trying impress you, only to be shoved into you. How could I be any better?

"Yeah, I'm fine." I looked up to see his worry ridden gorgeous face. I could've stayed there all day. Only then did I realize I probably just made a bigger fool of myself by actually running into him, then staying in his embrace. Great. Just kill me now.

"Okay." He smiled.

mmm…great smile…

"Thank you! But your smile is better." He grinned even bigger. CHIZ! Did I say that out loud? Okay. I'm officially the lamest person ever. His face would probably crack in half if his smile got any bigger.

"Uh…no it's not." Then I ran to my seat. Can you say "awkward turtles!"?

About half way through the class….things were getting weird. He hasn't taken his eyes off of me the whole time. Like, not even once. It would be creepy if it wasn't so flattering. Every time I glanced in his direction though, he would smile like the sun finally came out after thousands of years. Like I said, creepy, but nice in its own awkward and weird way.

Maybe he does like me though. Ah well, who knows.


Algebra was amazing. Of course, anything involving Katie is amazing. Like the way she bites her lip when she's concentrating, or cocks her head to one side when she's confused. I'm keeping track of every little thing about her so I know for future reference. She couldn't be more perfect.

When algebra let out, I took my chance.

"Hey Katie, are you doing anything Friday?" Please say yes, please say yes, please say…

"Collin, I barely know you, don't you think we should be friends before we date or anything?" I felt my heart rip apart…then heal because she basically said she wants to be friends! FRIENDS! With ME! If I could river dance, I would so do it right now.

"Yeah, you're totally right! So….how about you sit with me at lunch and we can…get to know each other more?" Please say yes, please say yes, please say YES!

"Yeah, sounds great." She smiled and walked off to P.E. (Yeah, I memorized her schedule, thank you amazing computer hacking skills!)

I sadly, had art. Without my precious Katie. Sigh.


Well, it could have gone worse. At least I didn't faint or anything…now that…would have been bad. Not just bad, bad, but end of the freaking world bad. So I'm fairly glad that didn't happen.

"So. Katie." I hear a nasally and very fake voice from behind me. I spoke too soon, my fabulous day is just about to take a nasty turn. Yes. Very nasty.

"I saw you like, talking to Collin. I hope you like, know you don't have a chance, because everyone knows he's, like, mine." Ashlyn said. I think I need a translator. Did you understand that? Me. Neither.

"I like, don't know what you're like, talking about because I like, just started talking to him." I am SO good with impersonations. This is why no one gets on my bad side. I may not cuss you out, but I can put a serious hit on your self esteem. Just watch, she's probably going to have a terrible comeback. And joy, a crowd is forming.

"YOU KNOW HE IS MINE! LIKE, STAY AWAY FROM COLLIN!" She screamed. Oww, I'm in serious need of a hearing aid thank you.

"Besides feeling my I.Q. drop about 15 points with your stupidity, I actually understand where you're coming from. Wait, nope not really. You know why? Because he has more taste than to go out with someone that applies make up with a shovel. But, then again, that's probably the only way you feel comfortable to go out in public. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have more important things to do than sit here and loose brain cells just from hearing you talking. Goodbye." I stated in a very calm manner. I know that must have made me seem like an itchbay, but she's been acting like that since kindergarten. So its technically not my fault. She started it! The sad thing is…she didn't even understand what I said. Tsk, Tsk.

I wasn't watching where I was going and I ran into yet another wall!

"Oh, sorry." Said a deep voice. Ew.

"Wh-what are y-you doing here?" I stuttered out.

OOHHH, semi-cliffy! Well, kinda.

REVIEW! Tell me what you want to see, and if you like what you saw!

also, what is your favorite Katie saying so far? Bre?
