A/N: So guys this is a new story that I just started writing today! Please let me know what you guys think...
So here I stand in front of this big two story house with a red door. I'm all alone in this world now, well except for my older sister, Taylor. We have been orphans ever since our parents died in an automobile accident two years ago. Due to the fact we were only fifteen and thirteen at the time, we were placed in child services. Since then, we have lived in two foster homes, but were kicked out because of Taylor and her rebellious ways. So now we were sent to a new foster family, the Davis'. Mr. and Mrs. Davis have one daughter that is my age and they live in Tree Hill, South Carolina. Which explains why I'm standing outside their house with my duffle bag thrown over my shoulder, after all we had to get rid of most of our other stuff in the various moves.
I make my way up to the front door and knock. My hands are shaking like they always do when we go to a new home. After all, I have only met Mrs. Davis once and have never seen Mr. Davis or their daughter. A few minutes later a petite brunette girl opens the door and pulls me in for a hug. "Hey you must be Haley!" the girl said.
"Yeah, and I'm guessing you are Brooke, right?" I asked nervously. I wasn't use to complete strangers giving out hugs but this girl didn't seem so bad.
"That's me," she answered before yelling in the house, "Mom they're here!"
Mrs. Davis came to the door with a smile on her face. "Well hello again. Welcome to our home. Come in and Brooke will show you where you can put your things. Where is your sister?" she wondered looking behind Haley as she walked inside.
"Sorry she wanted to see the town. I told her to wait but as always she didn't listen to me," Haley apologized.
"No worries. She'll come when she's ready. Now go get settled because I imagine you had a long trip," Mrs. Davis said smiling as she shut the door.
Haley followed Brooke up the staircase to the second door on the right. Inside was a bedroom with two twin beds and a huge closet full of clothes. Haley looked around at all the stuff and realized this must be Brooke's room. "So you like?" Brooke asked.
"I've never seen a room this big before. Is this your room?" she wondered.
"It was but now it's our room. I hope you don't mind, but I asked my mom if we could share a room. If you would rather have a room by yourself though, we could move your stuff…" Brooke started.
"No it's just that at the other foster homes I was crammed in smaller rooms with four or five different kids. No one has ever been this nice to me before. Thanks for letting me stay with you," Haley said quietly.
Brooke smiled before giving her a hug. "I'm sorry if you've had it rough the past couple of years. If you ever need to talk or whatever, I'm always here. I know you just met me, but I'm really a good listener. Also, I know we are going to be the best of friends. I can't wait for you to meet my other friend too. You'll love her!" Brooke said excitedly.
Haley was blown away at this girl's generosity. She had never met anyone like her, but she couldn't help the smile that came across her face. "I never had many friends, but I believe you. I appreciate your kindness," she replied.
"Ok now that we've got all of that settled. Let's get all your stuff unpacked. Where are all suitcases?" Brooke said confused.
Haley had to laugh at that before saying, "This is it! I had to get rid of everything else."
"Well then I'm going to call P. Sawyer and we're taking you on a shopping trip. After all, we start school in a couple of days and you are going to be the hot new girl!" Brooke added with a grin before grabbing her phone and making the call.
