DISCLAIMER: OWNING NOTHING

CHAPTER ONE: MIRACLE WORKER

The bell rang. Everybody filed out of there classrooms and headed towards the doors leading to the freedoms of mid winter recess. Among all these people was Sadie Hawthorne. But unlike her fellow students, Sadie was not at all excited about the long break. For her, a week and a half with no school, meant a week and a half with no Ben Harrison. It also meant that the annual winter wonderland festival was about to rear its ugly head. Its times like these when she wished her parents never made he take up piano lessons.

Searching the crowd with wondering eyes, Sadie found who she was looking for.

" Margret! Rain! " Sadie called out. Her friends saw her, and stopped to allow her to catch up.

" Hey Sade " Margret said.

" NO SCHOOL!!!! " Rain yelled with excitement. Margret and Sadie laughed at Rain's classic enthusiasm. A voice called back to Rain from the passing crowd.

" WOO HOO!!!!! YEAH!!!! " The voice said. They all started laughing.

" At least somone appreciates my enthusiasm. " Rain joked.

" Hey! We appreciate it! If it wasn't for you, who would cheer us up all the time? " Margret said.

" Ha! Your right! Without me you guys would have no fun... " Rain said, more to himself then to his friends. Margret rolled her eyes at Sadie.

" So hows Ben? " Margret nudged Sadie.

" I dont know, I haven't talked to him. " Sadie said, remembering that she was most likley not going to see him untill they got back from break. Unless he called her. She was praying he would.

" Speak of the devil! " Margret said in a somewhat hushed voice.

" What? " Sadie asked, not understanding what she meant. Suddenly she felt somone beind her. She turned around. " Hey Ben! " Sadie smiled when she realized it was him.

" Hey Red, whats going on? " Ben smiled down at Sadie. Her whole body started to get excited at the sound of his voice, and the twinkle in his eyes made her knees weak.

" Nothing much. " Sadie smiled, not fully able to do anything else.

" Happy about the vacation? " He asked.

" Yeah! " She lied.

" Cool. " He smiled. There was a pause. " So, theres this new food place at the mall, you guys whant to go? " His glance moved from Margret to Rain, then finally rested on Sadie.

" Yeah I heard about that place! " Rain said.

" Me too!!! " Margret added. " Its supposed to be the best place in town! " She looked over at Sadie. " Lets go Sadie! "

" Um... " Sadie was heasatant, knowing she had promiced she would practice for her piano recital, which was days away. " I cant tonight. " She sighed. Why had she promiced her mother tonight? Ben suddenly looked upset.

" Why not? " He asked. Sadie couldn't believe she was actually turning him down.

" I've got to-- " She stopped, remembering she's never told Ben or her friends about her piano playing expertice, fearing they would make her play for them.

" You've got to... " Rain asked, waiting for Sadie to finish her sentence.

" Nothing. I just can't go. " She said.

" Just tell us Sadie! " Margret said.

" No, I can't. " Sadie said.

" Why not?? " Rain asked. " Don't you trust us?? " Sadie could sence her friends starting to get upset with her.

" Of course I trust you guys! " Sadie said. " I just can't tell you... at least not yet anyway. " Ben must have saw how upset she was.

" Its okay Red. If you can't tell us right now, we'll just have to respect your privacy. Right guys?? " He looked over at Margret and Rain.

" Yeah, we're sorry Sadie. " Margret said. " You dont have to tell us. "

" At least not right now anyway. " Rain joked.

" Okay, thanks guys. I'm just... not ready to tell you right now. " Sadie said, thankful her friends wheren't mad at her. Ben Harrison was a miracle worker.

" No problem Sade. " Rain slapped Sadie on the back.

" Tomorrow can we go?? " She asked.

" Yeah, tomorrow. " Ben smiled. " Well, I have to go... " He started backing up, but his eyes were yet to leave Sadie's. " Can I call you Red? You know, to make plans? " He smiled.

" You better! " Sadie said playfully. Apparently there was something to look forward to during break...
