Taken .:Chapter 3:.
We pulled up to an old two-story house; the white paint was chipping off, two windows showing in the front, a wooden door, and a small awning. Around it were two big oak trees on either side of the house, a small garden, grass, and a curving stone walkway. There was a long driveway leading down to a small garage. As soon as the car was stopped, I quickly hopped out of my mother's grey Toyota Camry, and rushed up the walkway to the door. "knock-knock-knockknock-knock-ding-dong!" The last note of the bell rang out, and then the sound of locks turning was heard. Brenan stood in the doorway, "Sammy!" He squealed wrapping me in a tight hug. "Bren Bren!" I said in the same tone as him, returning the hug. My mother's heals clicked annoyingly against the walkway, sounding her approach. "Hi I'm Samantha's mom. Is your father home?" Her fake smile, an enthusiasm, made my stomach curl up. "Yeah, let me go get him. You can come in if you like. Oh and Sammy?" He asked, looking me. "Yes Bren?" I res

Driving to the park, Josh was really quiet. He didn't say much after we pulled out of the driveway, and he didn't look at me most of the time. All he would do is glance over every now and then, but mostly keep his eyes on the road, and small talk. He never really started a deep or on going conversation, which started to worry me. He loves to talk, but right now he's acting really strange. What going on with him?
"So what's wrong?" I finally say, while looking over at him after staring out the passenger window," You're being awfully quiet..."
"Hmm? Oh, umm you know, just lost in thought I guess." He said, looking over at me and smiling," Just thinking about someone." He winked.
"Oh? And who might that someone be?" I asked, very curious now.
"Oh he already knows. I'm sitting next to him right now." He said, giggling and turned his head back to face the road, but still glancing over at me. Josh had the most adorable laugh ever, and it was so cute it made me laugh as well.
We laughed all t

What if I did choose Josh? What would happen then. I mean Josh is really nice, and he has a great personality. He's caring and not self centered, and he's caring to everyone he meets. But I don't think that I can just drop everything and go with Josh. I like Josh...maybe even love him....No what am I saying? I can't love my best friend, not like this....
But I can try.
"Alex are you okay?" Josh said, placing one of his hands on mine. Leaning in closer to me, he raised his other hand and brushed the hair out of my eyes. I smiled slightly, and when I did Josh's eyes sparkled. His green eyes entranced me, and I couldn't look away, but I didn't want to. He had his grasp on me, and I wasn't about to let it go. Easing in closer and closer, Josh's face was only a couple of inches away from mine. Moving even closer, his lips touched my ear, and when he spoke warm air filled it.
"You know.....theirs something I've always wanted to try." He whispered in my ear.
"Oh? And what would that be?" I ch

I awoke to the sound of knocking on the door. I don't know which door it was, but it sounded far away. the hammering of bone and skin against the wooden door started to quicken. I rolled over onto my stomach, grabbed the nearest pillow and embedded my face into it. Make it stop, just make the noise stop.
"Alright, alright I'm coming!" Someone yelled. The voice sounded like Josh's, but something muffled it which made it sound a little deeper.
The door forcefully opened, and muffled voices started to mumble. Ugh, I might as well wake up. Sitting up and fully opening my eyes, I look around the room. I was in Josh's room and in his bed. What happened last night? I thought I went home after me and Josh...kissed. But I guess not, I must have fallen asleep in here last night. I looked over at the space next to me on the bed and saw that the covers were all crumpled up and thrown out of the way. Was Josh also sleeping in this bed? And now that I recall, I did wake up in the middle o

Running down the hallway, I race down to the gym. I've always been late to my classes, but never to P.E. I've always liked P.E. and I never knew why. Maybe it was because I love to run and exercise, or maybe just because of the hard work and effort I put into that class it just helps me not think of my problems. I don't know, but I really didn't want to be late to this class.
I ran quickly through the halls, weaving my way through the groups of people and the teachers. They didn't even care to stop me? Wow, some teachers. I finally got to the boys locker room, and ran through the door. Everyone was still getting dressed, and a lot of guys were still undressing. Thank god I made it. I went to my locker, and opened it up. A freshly folded shirt and shorts layed in the locker. Who did this? Then I saw a note laying on top of the shirt:
'Alex, I know that you're going through a hard time and all. But please don't do something as bad as suicide. I know I'm jumping to conclusions, but I just
