The clock ticked loudly as it sat unmoving on the wall. I watched in horror as the hands seem to tick slower and slower. I couldn't take the presser anymore; I needed to keep myself occupied so I wouldn't notice how slow the time was passing. Turning around to face the boy sitting behind me, I began to start a conversation about what he was planning on doing over the summer.
My name is Esmeralda Momoka the second, but everyone calls me Esme. I'm sixteen, in the 11th grade and currently dyeing from over dosage of school. Trust me, its possible. But that's not my issue right now. The real issue is that it's the last day of school and I have yet to hear from the total drama island people. I sent in my audition tape 2 weeks ago, and I still haven't gotten a reply.
The bell rang suddenly dismissing us from 3rd period. I picked up my books and said bye to Chad, (the boy sitting behind me) and strolled out the door. I rushed down to my locker where my best friend Christiana stood leaning against the wall, sporting her 'I hate you' look. "Dreary as always I see," I snickered fondling the lock next to her.
"Yeah yeah, so you hear from those people yet?" she asked while giving some lower class-men a dirty look, sending them rushing down the hall in fear.
"Stop scaring people, and no." I sighed. "And the show starts in a few days"
"Ahh well, don't get to upset, I heard Chris McClain was the host anyway. He's a douche."
"True, but he's hot." I snickered, Christiana laughed in agreement. "Yeah, that is true haha"
We continued to laugh as we walked down the hallway, but Jason, the ex-boyfriend-psycho-vampire-bad-boy-wannabe pushed me harshly into the lockers. "Hey! Watch it!" I yelled pushing the boy back.
"See I told you the girl was still into me, look at her, she's practically throwing herself on Me." the psycho boasted to his surrounding friends, who snickered. "Shut up Jason, don't you have little boys to rape?" I hissed grabbing Chrissie's arm and pulling her down the hall. the thing about Jason is you don't wanna mess with him. Point. Blank. hes done time. HARD time. i don't mean juvie, i mean actual jail. he allegedly murdered a girl but ther wasnt enough evidence to support that he did anything so they let him go (with a parol) but i know he did, i saw him do it.
"What a jerk." Chrissie muttered.
"He's more than a jerk." I wined, chris didnt know about him.
"How was your last day?" my mom asked as I walked threw the back door. "Like you care," I muttered she never cared what me or my sibblings did. not after dad left her, shes only asking cuz chrissies here and she likes to seem like a good mom. but chris has been here long enough to see threw her tricks.
"Oh, nothing, it was fine." I slumped into the kitchen stool chair, "Hi Mrs. Momoka." Chrissie commented. My mom just waved and walked out of the kitchen. Chrissie shrugged the greeting off and sat down next to me; she was used to the wonderful greetings. I sighed heavily, leaning back in my chair a bit. "Sissy?" a voice said threw the front room door. "Yo." It was Elizabeth my 13 year old sister, she's a little punk. shes been to the principals office more than i have. and thats saying something.
"Hey Liz" Chrissie greeted as she stood up and walked towards the fridge where she proceeded to fish for edible food.
"There's a letter for you, Es. Yeah hey chrissie." Liz threw me a letter and gave a meaningfull greating to chris, I caught it and my heart stopped instantly. For the first words I saw were 'Muskoka Ontario'. I stood up on the table and screamed. "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
"ESMERELDA!" I heard my mom call. Not wanting to get into trouble if she walked down stars, I jumped off the table and called "yo" up to her. There was a pause, "shut up," was all she said. Chrissie laughed and so did Liz. "Yes mama." I cried sitting back in my chair. I was so existed. "What did you get?" Chris asked pulling her Emily the strange jacket off and throwing it into the laundry room.
"I don't know but I think it's from the total drama island people!!!" I squealed sitting back into my chair, "what makes you think you got in anyway?" jeremiah, my older brother, asked walking into the kitchen.
"my video, its genious. they cant possibely say no."
"Ready to check the next audition tape?" the gorgeous show host asked the producers. "Yeah sure, plug it in." the producer said with a wave of his hand. Chris plugged in the tape and pressed play. the tape played.
Both Chris and the producer sat in astonishment. "So.... what was her name again?" Chris asked. "Umm… Esmeralda momoka." The producer said flipping threw his notes. "Yeah no question, she's in."
"Well with a tape like that I should hope so."
"…damn that was crazy."
"I can't believe you're leaving Me." my mom cried as she hugged me goodbye. "Yeah, ill be back at the end of the summer mom," I told her rolling my eyes behind her back as we hugged. I couldn't believe it; I was getting on a boat to go to a place where ill be away from my family for 18 WEEKS!!! It's a miracle.
Its not that I don't love my family, I do, a lot. But I can't stand there constant moaning and bitching. The stress they bring on me and what they expect, it's just too much and I need a brake. Especially since my accident a few months ago; my wrist still burns from time to time.
I was waving my family goodbye as the boat was pulling away from the dock.
I was saying goodbye to my friends, family, and my old life.
