Hey guys! So, I know that this is just another random little story coming your way… but last night I was just bored and came up with the idea – so here it is! The things that run through my head at 11:42 at night amaze me :P So R&R please…. Oh, and just so you know, this is 3 years before the summary actually comes into effect :) Just so you know.

Okay, enough of me wasting your time – enjoy!

September 8th, 2007.

Katrina's P.O.V:

Everything was perfect – absolutely perfect. Sophomore year baby! I had a new look, and this year was going to be amazing..! First day back at school, and nothing could be better than that amazing warm September weather just beating down on my newly tanned skin. I spent all of August in Hawaii, visiting my dad (he's a scientist there). Anyways, I went down there every summer, but this time was different. Instead of doing what I did before, as in playing in the pool, or going to play putt-putt with my dad, or going out into the ocean, I didn't. I tanned – relaxation right before school started. I shopped, I went to see movies, and most importantly? I worked on my body. Yup, that's right. Me, Katrina Malone, actually doing something productive? Surprising, right? Well, hey, I promised myself that I would slim up for this year– and look what I did. I went from a solid 132 lbs, to a fun, playful 'hey look at me' 104.

But, unfortunately, I was back here, in Minnesota, but then again, it wasn't all bad. No one had seen me since I got back from Hawaii, and I was loving the fact. My short, dark brown hair was gone – to HELLO blonde bombshell. Yes, with layers, and bangs and everything. So, now not only was I 28 pounds lighter, I was also 10 shades lighter (as in my hair.) Oh, and that doesn't even BEGIN to say about all the shopping I did while I was in Hawaii. Which is surprising, considering the fact that I really used to hate shopping, but actually – I kinda like it now.

So, goodbye to all my old, worn-out clothes, and hello new wardrobe.

Skinny jeans? Tons.

Skirts? A couple.

Shorts? Definitely.

Tank tops? About a million.

Ah, the famous tee shirts? Check.

Shoes? More than I can count.

Oh, and just for the record – when I was looking at myself in the mirror this morning, I don't even think that I looked like myself… PERFECT!

Destroyed skinny jeans with a form fitting purple tank top with white stars on it, and some gladiator sandals? You got my first day outfit, oh, with my hair straight, of course.

Im glad that school started today, considering that it didn't stay warm around here for long.

But after all, some things just worked out better than others.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Sitting on the bus with my iPod in was a breeze, but actually having to walk in through the sophomore entrance? Nightmare.

I swear it was like no one recognized me, and I could feel almost all eyes on me as I tried to keep my eyes on the floor and just find my locker.

Out of nowhere I felt something collide with my ass – a hand.

"Hey babe, you new here?"

Really? Did someone just slap my ass then call me 'babe'?

I looked to my right and sighed.

OBVIOUSLY, of all people, it would.

James Diamond. One of our top 4 hockey head's here, and a sophomore (like me!)

Thing is, we've been best friends since 4th grade.

I rolled my eyes "Yes Mr. Hockey head, I have no idea where im supposed to go, can you help me?" I asked, giving him puppy dog eyes and using a flirty tone.

"Well, why don't I just hel- did you just call me Mr. Hockey head?" he said, walking over to me, and then stopping. "The only person that calls me that… HOLY SHIT KAT!" He yelled, his eyes widening as he hugged me tightly.

"James!" I said laughing. "Can't breathe!"

"Sorry" he muttered, putting me down. "What in the hell happened to you? You don't look like… Kat! You look hot!"

I smiled. "Why thank you James. Hawaii can have that effect on some people, you know."

"Shit!" he mumbled again, smacking his forehead. "Hawaii, I forgot! How was it?" He asked, grabbing my schedule as we started walking towards where my locker was.

"AMAZING!" I squealed. "It was so great. I tanned, I shopped, I played volleyball with really, really cute Hawaiian guys, I surfed-"

He stopped walking. "Who are you and what have you done with my best friend?"

I smiled and laughed. "Im just a new person now."

He shook his head. "No, see the Kat that I know, HATES shopping, hates tanning, has no coordination to surf, and despises volleyball with a passion." He said, smirking down at me.

"Oh, shut up James." I said, smacking his chest and laughing. "Jeeze James!" I said, shocked. His abs were like, hard as a freaking rock!

"You like?" He asked cockily as he leaned against the locker next to mine as I entered in my combination.

"Never said that." I replied sarcastically, rolling my eyes. "You just beefed up a lot over the summer." I said with a small laugh.

"Yeah, I guess I did." He said, smiling.

I put my bag into my locker and grabbed my English book and notebook from the top of my locker before going to close it.

Before my locker was completely shut, a tall, green eyed blond, and a shorter, dark haired pale guy walked over to us.

"James!" The blond said, excitedly.

"Hey Kendall." James replied, smiling. "So what, no hi from you Logan?"

"Huh, what?" the dark haired one asked, looking for something… or someone. "Oh, yeah, hey!" He said, looking back at James.

"So, whats up?" Kendall asked James.

James, as always, smiled cockily as he draped his arm around my shoulders and basically forced me to turn around. "Nothing much."

I blushed slightly and looked down.

"New girl, nice." Kendall said, laughing.

James started laughing. "Nope."

I looked up at James, and then back at Kendall.

Kendall looked me over for a minute, before his eyes widened. "K-KAT?" he asked, stunned.

I bit my bottom lip and blushed again. "Hi?"

"There's no freakin way!" He said, laughing.

I nodded slowly. "Hawaii has that effect on some people."

"You look good." He said, smiling slightly.

"Thanks." I said, returning the smile.

"JAMES!" Someone screamed from down the hallway, followed by James getting pushed off of me and onto the floor, Carlos Garcia tackling him.

"CARLOS! OFF." James said, laughing.

Carlos jumped off of him and helped him up. Turning around he saw Kendall "KENDORK!" he said, going to tackle Kendall.

"Don't! Even think about it Carlos." Kendall said laughing.

Carlos sighed and let his arms fall to his sides before turning to me. "Hey Kat," he said sighing and turning away, then stopping and turning back around slowly. "KAT?"

I smiled. "That's the same reaction I've gotten from you 3." I said, looking at them all. Then laughing I said, "hey Carlos."

He grinned and looked like he was about to tackle me when he stopped. "You'll get pissed if I tackle you, wont you?"

I smiled. "Yeah, but you can still hug me." I said, opening my arms for a hug.

Carlos, (still grinning) wrapped his arms around me and actually lifted me off the ground.

I laughed as he put me down.

"What happened to you?"

"Hawaii." I said, smiling.

"Ah, I see." He said. "Lemme see your schedule." He held out his hand and I looked at James.

"Oh, right." James said, handing Carlos my schedule.

Carlos smiled. "Okay, so let's see… we have 2nd period, 4th period, 5th period and 8th period together." He said, handing me my schedule back. "And 5th period is lunch!" He said, almost too excited.

James was still leaned against the lockers on my right, and Kendall was leaning against the lockers on my left, while Carlos was standing in front of me. "Really?" James asked, smiling.

Carlos nodded. "Why?"

"I have 4th, 5th, 7th and 9th period with her."

"WHOO! LUNCH BUDDIES!" Carlos yelled as he and James high-fived.

I laughed at them and their stupidity and looked over at Kendall. "So what about you?" I asked, handing him my schedule.

He looked it over and smiled. "Kinda looks like your gonna be seeing a lot of me." He said, handing it back.

"Why..?" I asked.

"Well, we have 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and 9th period together?"

"Are you kidding me?" I asked, shocked.

He shook his head. "Is that a bad thing?"

I laughed. "No, I probably should get to know my best friends' best friend." I said, playfully shoving his shoulder.

He laughed and looked down as the warning bell rang. He looked up at me and smiled as I turned to James and Carlos, hugged them both, and walked to English with Kendall.

I dunno, he was really, really cute… but he was my best friends… best friend. I looked up at him, he was only a few inches taller than me, and he was a hockey player – correction, the number 1 hockey player in our school.

Looks like time will tell, that's all.

So, I can honestly say that I spent around 2 hours working on this whole shebang. xD

I came up with the summary first, and then had to think of how to word the story.

I know that the summary doesn't match the story – YET.

This is in the past, and I promise that it'll get more into… well, what the summary says.

I'll make a chapter for every year leading up to 2010 (starting from 2008 as my next chapter) So don't worry, I'll try and update soon :D

Review please
