"His Oscar speech he was planning if he won for the Hurt Locker? He named three people to thank for influencing his acting career; me, God, and you. He realized that his heart had only belonged to one person his entire life, and that he wasn't sure if she knew it, but that it didn't matter. Just that he had met her. That was you Skylar."

Okay. So, i had a fun idea for a new Renner fanfic. I think it's potentially a good idea, but go ahead and tell me what you think. If i don't get a lot of response, then you'll only have this prologue i've written. This is JUST the prologue, and if continued, the chapters will jump forward a little to create a time gap.
I DON'T OWN SKULL CANDY, OR JEREMY RENNER OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT'S SEEN IN THIS PROLOGUE. I ONLY SARAH AND SKYLAR.
Enjoy the prologue!
"Sarah?! Where did you set my headphones?"
"I don't know?! Check the magazine basket!"
"Why the hell would they be in there?!" I physically face palmed my forehead whilst walking to the clutter of magazines. I rummaged for a few seconds until I stumbled on my yellow Skull Candy headphones. They were then stuffed into my black suitcase, and the suitcase was zipped closed. My eyes scanned the surrounding area to make sure no item was forgotten.
"You know Skylar? I think that you're just a little OCD. You've been checking and re-checking that bag for the last 2 hours,"
I turned to see my grinning roommate, Sarah. I immediately was sad, and scared about the decision I had made just a few months earlier to leave my job, and move back to my home state; California.
I sent a warm smile to Sarah, and embraced her for what would probably be the last time. "I'm really gonna miss you. I spent the past six years living with you, so now you're practically my sister. But make sure to come visit me in California. I don't think I'll be able to last long without some real friends," I pulled away and wiped a stray tear from my cheek. Sarah just smiled back at me and held onto my wrists securely.
"You will be fine. You're too gorgeous and friendly to not be accepted. Besides, you were born in Modesto, so you should be able to just hop right back on that California ship," she winked at me and I chuckled a little.
"Yeah, but I moved when I was ten. I hardly remember anything,"
"Well, either way, California is waaaay more fun than North Dakota. Why did we decide to go to school here again?" she giggled, releasing my hands and I laughed in sync with her.
"Because we live in the most boring state, and decided to keep the rest of our lives that way," we both laughed even harder and I glanced one more time into Sarah's dark brown eyes. "God Sarah. What am I gonna do?"
She shrugged. "I don't know. You're social life will now be hella boring," she smiled and handed me my purse. "You sure you don't want me to drop you off at the airport?"
"Nah. It would just make this goodbye harder,"
Sarah sadly nodded and pulled me in for a quick hug and whispered, "Now. You only wasted six years of your life to become a physical trainer. Go to California and become the best out there. Make North Dakota proud. Oh, and tell all the sexy celebrities I say hi,"
I grinned, and smacked the back of her head playfully. "I told you. He probably wouldn't remember me. That was thirteen years ago, and now he's a big high and mighty action star,"
"Yea? Well, he only babysat you for those thirteen years, so I'm pretty sure he'd remember that chunk of his life. I'm not saying you guys are gonna get married and have a happily ever after, but if you happen to see him, make sure he remembers you,"
I nodded and slid the handle from the suitcase, and stuffed my pillow on top. "Alright then Sarah. I love you, and come move to California with me once your acting kicks off," I winked and she laughed.
"Okay. Well, call me when you land! I don't want another Red Eye incident happening!"
I chuckled as I shut the door to our—her apartment. Making my way down to the cab that had scheduled to pick me up. I threw my stuff in the trunk and asked the driver to take me to Minot International Airport. As he began driving, my mind was wandering to what I would do once I reached California. First things first: I'd buy a car. All my money I had saved from my job as a High School girl's volleyball coach, the money from selling my lease and my car, and every little penny made from everything else in between. I had enough for a month's worth of living, a car, and gas, but after I got the car, I had to get a job. I had applied at many high schools and middle schools in the Modesto area, and was hoping someone would remember who I was, and give me a job. No such luck. I sighed as I watched the snow drip down the window and said my last goodbyes to North Dakota. No more cold, no more snow and no more travelling 40 minutes just to get a decent movie. My life was going to drastically change, and I was nervous. I had no parents to support me in my move, no boyfriend to come with me, and one of my few friends was now back at the apartment watching re-runs of Saturday Night Live. I tried to change my state of mind to optimism. Sarah was right. I'd lived in California before and had done just fine. I can do this. I'm sure there are people in Modesto who still remember me as a little girl, and remember my parents, so I shouldn't be completely alone. But they might not recognize me... i did dye my hair to a soft brown... i had practically bleach bond hair as a child, but my eyes were the same blue/brown mix that i had been complimented on my whole life. No one would remember me. I've grown up and filled out. Only 5'3", but good C cupped breasts and a fairly decent backside. The people of Modesto certainly wouldn't see the little 10 year old who moved away that long ago. I had to make it a mission to find someone who remembered me. I shut my eyes as I tried to remember any of their names, any of their faces. But my mind kept going back to one name. My babysitter's. My childhood crush. Jeremy Renner.
Thanks for reading! Review please! No Jeremy in this prologue, but if you like enough, he'll sure to be in upcoming chapters(;
