Welcome to my story!

Please, please, PLEASE review, and please be nice :)

It really means alot.

Now I know not much happens in this chapter, but... the next chapter is better! I swear!

Rated T for safety, and yes, I'm aware Jade isn't as usually this mean, and Cat isn't nearly as funny as normal, and Tori is kinda impatient... but...

Okay, I'll shut up.

I hadn't intended for things to go like this.

I hadn't planned to come here.

Things just fell into place.

How did I get here?

Where is "here"?

Well, read on.

But keep in mind..

Just when things fell into place, things started falling apart.

Tori's POV

I wiped the back of my hand against my forehead, trying to remove the sweat from my face.

So. Hot.

Climbing the stairs, I almost smiled when the rush of air conditioning hit me.

Just because we have cars doesn't mean we all want to drive. Andre was driving home today, and he was bringing Robbie with him, but the rest of us were riding the bus. It actually wasn't all that bad.

I stood inside the bus, waiting for the cluster of younger students blocking my path to move.

I tapped my foot impatiently. Finally, I said "Excuse me!" and pushed past them.

That was when I heard Cat call my name.

"Tori!" She called. "Tori!"

I walked over and sat down in front of her. Before I even had a chance to get comfortable, she started rambling on.

"You will NEVER believe who asked me out today!"

"Who?" I asked, mentally patting myself on the back for not taking my anger with the heat outon Cat.

"C'mon, guess!"

I sighed, "Hmm.." I paused, trying my best to play along.

You see, I wasn't normally like this. Normally I didn't just tolerate Cat, I LIKED listening to her. (Even if she was kinda...wacky.) But today.. The heat, the fact that Jade still lived on our planet... It was all too much.

I said the first name that came to mind.

"Jared?" I guessed.

"OhMyGosh!" she squealed. "You are PSYCHIC!"

I smiled, and turned my head. Sitting in the seat across from mine was Beck. He rolled his eyes and smiled, as Cat rambled on, oblivious to the fact that I wasn't paying attention to her.

I opened my mouth to say something -anything- to him, but stopped.

"Hey Beckett," she said, trying her best to be seductive.

Must. Refrain. From. Rolling. Eyes.

"Hey Jadelyn." he greeted warmly.

"DON'T use my full name!" she snapped.

"Sorry, Jade."

He moved his bag onto the floor, and she dropped into his seat. He wrapped his arm around her shoulders, and she smiled at me. She raised an eyebrow, and it took everything in me not to yell at him for going out with such a monster.

Not that I cared, or anything. The doors on the bus clicked shut, and we lurched forward. Jade shrugged Beck's arm off of her, and turned to Cat.

"So Cat.." she said, in a voice coated in artificial sugar sweetness.

"Jared asked me out!" she squealed.

"Awesome," replied Jade. "He's really cute. His eyes, and his hair.." she smiled her evil smile, and I didn't bother trying to hide my scowl. Not only was her boyfriend right there, but I knew what she was thinking. She's gonna dump Beck again, play around a bit with Jared, push him away, and pull Beck back into her spiderweb of doom. She's done it three times in the past two months alone. She turned her head and noticed my scowl.

"What?" she snapped.

"You know what!" I said, as I glared at her.

Normally I would cower away, not because I was afraid of HER.. I was just afraid of her comebacks.

But not today.

"Now do I?"

Of course you do, you heartless slut.


She opened her mouth to shoot some nasty comeback, but I stopped her.

"And I'm not playing this game today."

That shut her up. And Cat too.

Beck spoke up before anything else could be said.

"Thank God it's the weekend!" he said.

We all nodded our heads in agreement.

"Anybody have plans?"

We all shook our heads.

"Good." he said. "Then let's all hang out."

"With her?" Jade said, pointing at me and spitting the words as if the very thought had a bad taste to it.

I rolled my eyes and ignored her.

"If she wants to come, she can." Said Beck. "It's not up to you."

Then, I had a brilliant idea. Without thinking it over before I spoke, I said, "Let's go to the old mental asylum!"

Everyone was silent. In fact, they were silent for such a long time, I began to think it was a really stupid idea.

Then Beck spoke.

"I'm in."

Cat was next.

"I've never been there, but me too."

I stared at Jade, who shrugged.

"Well?" I asked.

"Of course I'm coming! You think I would leave my boyfriend alone with you? Please!"

I rolled my eyes.

"Yes, Jadelyn. I am a mindless whore and I am going to throw myself at your boyfriend until he eventually gives in. And then I will have his babies."

She chewed her lip furiously as Beck laughed hysterically behind her. Cat and I laughed too.

"Wait..." Cat said.

"Tori, pregnancy is nothing to joke about. If your going to have Beck's babies, I think maybe.."

I opened my mouth to tell her I was just kidding, but Jade beat me to it.

"Vega will NOT be having my Beck's babies!" she hissed.

"Oh. Okay... Yet." Cat smiled at Jade, and then proceeded to text Jared non-stop for the next fifteen minutes.

The bus stopped, the doors swung open, and Jade stood up.

"Beck, you will come get me at five." she ordered.

"Actually, I'll be coming." Cat said.

"Fine!" Jade said. Then she stormed off of the bus, leaving us to plan for that night.

PLEASE REVIEW! What do you think? I already have the second chapter written, so... yeah.

Review and the rainbow bunnies will give you a cookie!

(I'm sane. I swear.)
