It has been a week since I began working on my grandpa's farm. I have gotten to know most of the people in the village and they are all really nice and helpful. I came from the city and I hated that place. I had no friends, a dead end job, and no money. I don't know if I could have kept going. After my grandfather died it made it even worse. I was depressed and if I didn't focus I would have lost my job. I got a letter in the mail saying how my grandpa wanted me to take over his farm. I thought about it, but not for that long. Why would I stay here? I decided the next day I would take over and become a farmer thinking it would be easy. But trust me, it is nothing close to easy. The farm was a mess and I had to try to clean it all up but it took me longer then I had expected. I finally caught on to this farming business and planted my first seeds which were turnips. I got a horse from Barley and named it Dakota, and I have my grandpa's dog's baby who I called Chance. Yup, things started running smoothly. One night after I was done all my work I looked down at my watch.
"5:30!" I said surprised "Time flew by today!" I said as chance barked back. I decided to take a break and go relax somewhere. I hadn't been at the beach once ever since I got here and the waves always made me feel better so I decided to go there. On my way I saw Popuri having diner with her family. I thought Popuri was very pretty just like Ann. I think I like them. I got to the beach and looked around. It was very peaceful and it made me feel good. I sat down in the sand and just stared out into the sea. I watched as the water would climb up to my feet and fall back down. I sat there for almost half and hour when I heard something behind me. I quickly looked around to see someone with their head buried in their arms. It was a girl and she must have been here for a while, I can't believe I didn't see her. I got up and walked over to her and sat back down.
"What's wrong?" I asked looking at her.
"Oh…Huh?" she looked up surprised and her eyes watering. She was beautiful, she had glimmering green eyes, shiny brown hair with blond streaks.
"Why are you crying?" I asked staring at her Stunning face.
"I'm not crying!" She answered quickly "I'm just….mad"
"Well why are you mad?" I asked curious still staring at her.
"Why would I tell you about my personal life, I don't even know you!" She said angrily "And stop looking at me!"
"sorry" I said quietly looking away from her "I want to learn more about the villagers"
"Well maybe you should learn more about the villagers like their names before you snoop into their personal lives" She said impatiently.
"Sorry" I said again quietly. This girl was very beautiful but she sure had an attitude.
"Can you just leave me alone please?" she said quietly putting her head back in her arms.
"Sorry" I said one last time as I stood up and walked away from the beach. I stopped as I was just about to leave and looked back at her. "My name is Jack by the way" I said just loud enough for her to hear me and I walked back to my farm.
I woke up the next morning at 6:00 and had breakfast. I walked outside and did all my daily chores and finished a bit early so I thought I would go relax.
"Maybe I shouldn't go to the beach if that girl is there…" I said petting chance. "Who cares its no ones beach I can go there if I want!" Chance barked in agreement and I walked to the beach. When I got there I looked around and was relieved she wasn't there, but deep down I felt kind of disappointed. I walked to the edge of the water and sat down. I thought about how beautiful that girl was yesterday. I couldn't believe someone like her lived in a place like this.
"Oh great, its you again" I heard an uninterested voice behind me say. I looked back to see that beautiful girl standing there with her arms cross. "Cant I come here without being annoyed by you"
"I'm just here to relax, sorry about anything I did wrong" I said unhappily
"Ya whatever..." she said ignorantly as she sat down far away from me. I sat there in silence for quite a while staring at the ocean. I just wished that girl would give me a chance. She was so pretty, it was like I missed seeing her face.
"This is boring I am out of here" She said sounding bored. I never turned around but I heard her footsteps in the sand. It then stopped "By the way Jack, my name is Karen" she said as I heard the footsteps continue on. I thought about what she said. I swear I heard a little joy in her voice. But however she meant it, it made me smile for the rest of the week.
