Authors note: Okay everyone, I am revamping this story. I will try and have more up this week. I just sort of wrote myself into a whole, but I'm working to dig myself out. The plot line is basically the same; I just change a few things around. Please see my chapter 11 authors' note because I could use some help with a few things. I hope that it's better than before!

Chapter 1

Mia's POV

Friday, October 17,the Limo to school

I can't believe it! After all more than a year Michael is coming home! I can't believe it. We've talked and E-mailed after everything that happened before. And He totally believes me that it was an accident and, we're sort of still together. We both agree that we need to talk about stuff more, and that we both need to be more open. We're going to talk after he comes home, and "take things slow," as he put it in his last e-mail.

He's supposed to come home tomorrow afternoon. I'm a little nervous about Michael coming home. I don't know what to say or what to do or anything. Tina thinks that it will all fall in place when we see each other and that everything will be okay, like what happened to the heroin in her latest Romance book. I hope she's right.

Tina and I are spending the night at Lilly's to help with the welcoming home party. It took a while but Lilly forgave me for the whole J.P. thing. I think. But we're still friends and everything. I think she talked to Michael or something. I don't know I'm just happy I have my best friend back.

Everything seems to be going so great; everything, except for my friendship with J.P. Every time I mention Michael or something about when he's coming home he gets kind of weird and changes the subject. It's been getting worse since I told him Michael was coming home. I don't know maybe he thinks we won't be friends anymore when Michael comes home. But that's ridiculous; he'll still be my friend even if Michael is my boyfriend.

I've talked to Tina about it and she thinks I should confront him about it, but I don't know. I'm going to see if he wants to come to Michael's welcome home party tomorrow. I try talking to Lilly about J.P. but she gets all mad and stuff. She doesn't like him much anymore. She just tolerates him at lunch and when we all do stuff together.

But I'm going to talk to him at school. I can't wait to see Michael! Just one more day!

School girl's bathroom lunch period

Ok. Lunch was really odd. Everyone was there like usual. We all sat down at the table, and started talking about different stuff when Boris asked when Michael was coming home tomorrow. Lilly told him that the party would be at four in the afternoon since his plane didn't get in until around noon. That way there would be plenty of time for him to get through security and all that.

So we all got talking about the party plans and how excited we all were to see Michael. J.P. was acting really weird. When I mentioned that I couldn't wait to see Michal he got all tense. And when we were talking about the party plans he stopped talking and was just sort of sulking. I thought maybe he thought he wasn't invited because of the whole lily thing, but I had already asked her if it would be ok and she said yes. So I turned to him and asked him if he was planning to come to the party, because I would think it would be really fun if he came.

"Yeah right," he said and then he actually snorted! "Why would I want to go to Michael's stupid coming home party?" Then he stood up and stormed out of the cafeteria. He didn't even eat any of his chili. So I'm going to talk to him and try to figure out what's the matter.
