I woke up to the sun shining in my face through the blinds. I rolled over on to my back and laid looking up at the ceiling.
"well today is the first day at this new school"
I told myself. I heard footsteps coming toward my door but didn't make a move.
"Jess, hun it's time to get up. Your gonna be late for you first day."
I heard my mom tell from the other side of the door.
I yelled back as I heard her turn to walk away. I finally got up went and took a shower washed my face my hair brushed my teeth, then put on my bra and panties them walked to my closet ad looked through for what I was going to wear today. I finally picked out what I decided to wear got dressed fixed my hair then looked at myself in the full length mirror hanging on the wall. After grabbing my stuff I headed downstairs to the kitchen.
I said kissing her cheek and sitting on the stool at the island.
"good morning baby. You look really cute today."
"thank you. I love the clothes you bought me."
"well this is a new state, city, and school, and you needed a new look to go with a new start far away from the old life."
She said as she handed me a plate of bacon eggs pancakes and hash browns. She then handed me a glass of orange juice. I ate all my food and drank my juice before heading out the door.
"ok well I'm leaving."
"oh, baby wait."
She called out to just as I was opening the door.
I asked as I turned around to look at her.
"here is some money for you to get something for dinner. I haw to work late tonight."
I said as I took the money and put it into my purse. I then kissed her cheek then walked out got into my car and left. A few minutes later I was pulling up to the school. I put the car in park grabbed my stuff got out and walked in. I saw a lot of kids in the hallway just staring at me. I tried not to pay any attention to it. So I kept walking looking for the front office until someone stopped me in my tracks.
"what up shorty? You lookin mighty fine."
I turned around to see a tall milk chocolate skinned boy behind me.
"you must be new here."
"and how do you know that?"
"well one with how fine you are I would have seen you around here before. And two you walking with your head down not sure of where you are going."
I just looked at him cause he was right. I had no idea where I was going. I was looking for the office but with how big this school I didn't think I would ever find it.
"well my name is Jamal."
He said as he stuck his hand out for me to shake it.
"I'm Jessie. But you can call me Jess." I said as I shook his hand
"well if you follow me I'll show you to the office."
I followed behind him to the office. This boy was so fine. I think I'm gonna like this school. There is no better way I could have asked to start my new life at a new school.
