A/N: EliLover28 is back! I'm so sorry for the delay everyone! I have so much on my plate and I have a terrible case of writer's block but I knew I needed to upload a chapter soon. The chapter is a little rushed. I'm sorry everyone but don't forget I love you all and I'd love reviews from you all!


Chapter 2:

Clare's Point of View:

"And then, his smirk! Breathtaking! I loved it! That's not even the best part! I'm going to meet him somewhere later!" I told Alli.

"Someone seems excited today."

"I am! I really am! He's really nice!" Oh no. I'm starting to sound-

"You're in love!" Oh my goodness. She didn't say that! I, Clare Edwards, am not in love with a stranger!

"No! I told you I wouldn't fall in love at all! It's not worth it." I said as I looked down at my feet. I couldn't like Alex. I barely met this guy. I can't get feelings for him.

"Well Clare, you're going to see him today. Get to know him and maybe you'll like him." She has to stop with this! I will never like him!

"I can't. What if he has a girlfriend? I will be the one suffering. Like I said, not worth it." I must admit. I was a little disappointed as I said those last few sentences.

"Well you could find out after school, right?" She asked.

"Well I guess I could." I replied ending that conversation


Eli's Point of View:

"And I know everyone of you will be succesful! One way or another!"

"Great job Muffin! I wish I could go see you read your speech to the students but I don't want to take up your spotlight." Typical Imogen. Always thinking she'll take my fame.

"Don't worry about it. It's okay. Anyways I need to get the premier tickets for the students."

"Oh yes! You left them in my book!"

"Which one out of all of them?" Imogen giggled. Her giggle made me less nervous. Of course you'd think, why would a 21 year old, award winning actor be nervous? It's just not always easy reading a speech in front of an entire high school who expect you not to mess up.

"The one you picked up for me at the mall yesterday, remember?"

"Oh yes!" I quickly grabbed the envelope that held the tickets and gave Imogen a kiss. "Okay honey, I'm leaving now."

"Good luck! Tell me how it goes!"

"I will!" And with that I walked out the door and I drove to Degrassi.


Clare's Point of View:

Every start of a new school year, Principal Simpson decides to get have a special guest speaker attend our school so they can give us an inspiring speech. I was actually looking forward to it. A straight A student like me loves events like this. I guess you could say it was just another presentation with a boring speaker but it wasn't. This time, we had a famous guest star giving us the speech. This time, many people were looking forward to the presentation. 5 people from Degrassi will get their names drawn and the names drawn win prizes chosen by the guest. I was really excited because I entered my name in the contest. Maybe I won't win, maybe I will but it's worth the try.

I was about to head to the school's auditorium when I felt someone looking at me. The halls were extremely crowded but when I turned around, I saw them. Eyes. Not just any pair of eyes. Green eyes. Emerald green to be specific. They were beautiful. They were like nothing I've ever seen before. I couldn't see much of his face but I needed to keep looking for him. I knew I had to do it later and I knew I was.

As I walked into the auditorium I looked for the green eyes. No matter how hard I looked, I couldn't find them. As I searched for the stranger I felt someone grab my arm.

"Hey there Alice. The Mad Hatter's been looking for you." Jenna said referring to Alli.

"Where's Alli?" I asked.

"She's on the eighth row, second seat."

"Thanks. Are you going to sit with us?"

"No I have to talk to KC."

"Oh. Okay. Well I'll see you later then." I gave Jenna a quick hug and I went to sit with Alli.

When I found Alli, she had already saved me a seat. I took my seat next to her and the first thing she asked was...

"Have you talk to Alex yet?" Of course. To her it's all about guys.

"Not yet. Do you know who the special guest star is?"

"Nope but I know we're about to find out." And as usual, Alli was right. Just as she said that Principal Simpson walked up the stage.

"Good morning students of Degrassi. As you all know, today we have a special guest. Now this guest isn't just special but he's famous. He also attended Degrassi not too long ago. Many of you know him as award winning actor for his role as Mason in 'The Major Accident'." I couldn't believe it! He had to be lying. He had to! "Everyone quiet down please. I would like to welcome Eli Goldsworthy!" I could hear screaming fans all around the auditorium. As a huge fan of Eli, I joined in with the screaming.

"Good morning Degrassians! How are you all today?" The screaming continued. I had stopped screaming. I respected him and I couldn't wait to hear his speech. "Well as you all know I was once a student here at Degrassi and I am extremely proud to be a guest speaker here. I see you are all excited. I don't blame you. I'd be excited if I had a sexy guest speaker at my school." I loved him! He made everyone laugh. "I'm joking. Back to the topic. As you can see I am a famous actor. I travel the world, I make my own money, and I am very well know but I didn't just get here magically. It all took me a lot of work. I had to find auditions, I had to practice my acting skills, and not only that but I had learn my lines in one week. It seems easy but it's not. It all takes hard work. And do you know where it starts?" Silence. People were actually listening to him. "It all starts here. Right here at Degrassi. Many of you probably don't try as hard as you can in class. Many of you don't care but think about it. Take it from me. I make thousands of dollars month and I'm just an actor. Imagine what you can all be. Doctors, engineers, lawyers, so many things! If you try you can make it." A pause. "And I know everyone of you will be succesful! One way or another!" And then there was clapping.

"Thank you Mr. Goldsworthy. I am proud of what you have accomplished."

"Thank you Mr. Simpson. Now I think it's time for the drawing. Don't you agree?" Eli asked with a smirk on his face.

"I do!" And with that, the office secretery brought out a glass ball filled with papers. Once it was in front of Eli he put his hand in the glass and started twirling around the papers.

"If I call your name I'd like for you to come and stand on the stage." Once he said that he grabbed the first paper and read the name out loud.

"Bianca DeSousa" Eli grabbed another paper.

"Mo Mashkour" Three more to go.

"KC Gurthie" Come one! Say Clare Edwards!

" And Tori Santamaria." Oh no. Once Tori was on the stage, Eli shook all of their hands. I lost all hope. I wouldn't get to meet Eli Goldsworthy in person. "You four have just won two premier tickets to my upcoming movie 'Fifteen Minutes Till Dawn'. You will be one of the first to see it but I still have one more name to call. This next person not only gets two premier tickets but they will also get to spend an afternoon with me." One more name. I had lost all hope. I just wanted to leave already but I was curious who would win an afternoon with Eli. "This will be the last name I call." He reached down and grabbed a paper. Once he read that name, I was speechless.


Eli's Point of View:

As I walk the halls of my old high school I remember all the good times and the bad times here. My first day at Degrassi, my teachers, my friends, senior ditch day. Too many memories.

"Ahh, Mr. Goldsworthy. Nice to see you. Are you ready for the big speech?"

"I sure am Principal Simpson. So tell me, how's Degrassi without me?"

"It's... less work for me." We both chuclked at his remark. "I'm actually glad you're here. I think the students here really need..." I didn't pay attention to the rest of what he said because someone caught my eyes. What was she doing here? Was she a student here? Then she turned around. Wow. Her eyes are a beautiful shade of blue. I knew I needed to talk to her. Just as I was about to walk up to her, Principal Simpson caught my attention.

"Eli?"

"Yeah?"

"We need you backstage."

"Oh yeah. I'm on my way." I walked to auditorium making sure that no one would see me but she was on my mind the entire time. I need to find her.

I waited a few minutes backstage for Principal Simpson to give his introduction. I took a peek at the audience and I saw her. I think she was looking for someone.

"Okay, Mr. Goldsworthy. We're about to start."

"Ms. Dawes! Long time no see! How are you doing?"

"I'm great! I actually miss my sucessful student. How about you?"

"I'm doing great! I am a guest speaker at my old high school."

"I'm so proud of you Eli!" Then I heard Principal Simpson say,

"I would like to welcome Eli Goldsworthy!"

"Good luck Eli."

"Thanks Ms. Dawes." I gave her a quick hug and I walked out to the stage.

"Good morning Degrassians! How are you all today?" Everyone was cheering and yelling. This made me smile. I love my fans. "Well as you all know I was once a student here at Degrassi and I am extremely proud to be a guest speaker here. I see you are all excited. I don't blame you. I'd be excited if I had a sexy guest speaker at my school. I'm joking. Back to the topic. As you can see I am a famous actor. I travel the world, I make my own money, and I am very well know but I didn't just get here magically. It all took me a lot of work. I had to find auditions, I had to practice my acting skills, and not only that but I had learn my lines in one week. It seems easy but it's not. It all takes hard work.

Imagine what you can all be. Doctors, engineers, lawyers, so many things! If you try you can make it." Silence. Another pause. This time, longer. "And I know everyone of you will be succesful! One way or another!" Everyone started clapping.

"Thank you Mr. Goldsworthy. I am proud of what you have accomplished."

"Thank you Mr. Simpson. Now I think it's time for the drawing. Don't you agree?"

"I do!" With that, I saw a lady from the office bring in a glass ball filled with papers.

"If I call your name I'd like for you to come and stand on the stage." I grabbed a paper and I read out loud,

"Bianca DeSousa". One down four to go.

"Mo Mashkour" Three more.

"KC Gurthie" Two.

" And Tori Santamaria!" Once Tori was on stage I shook all four students' hands and continued.

"You four have just won two premier tickets to my upcoming movie 'Fifteen Minutes Till Dawn'. You will be one of the first to see it but I still have one more name to call. This next person not only gets two premier tickets but they will get to spend an afternoon with me." I reached down and I grabbed one more paper. I read out loud the name and I saw her.

"Clare Edwards!"
