Author's Note: Hello! This is a new story that I've come up with, it's kind of weird but I couldn't put it out of my head so here it is lol. In this story, Melissa is Mary Magdalene's mother, just so you know. I hope you enjoy, if not, sorry!

Note: Before you read this, I just want to say that I am in NO way, trying to rewrite the bible. This is purely FICTOIN. I know that this is not what happened in the Bible, and I would never try to rewrite God's word. His word is so holy and so pure, I have no reason to rewrite it, and no desire to.

High School Sweet Hearts

High School: Chapter 1

Mary took a look at herself in the small mirror. She sighed, not knowing what to do with her hair on the first day of school. She didn't want to look like she was trying to hard. Saying a small prayer to the Lord, she ran a finger through her long, curly, light brown hair. She put on a brown dress which covered her entire body, and then brushed her teeth. Seeing that she had extra time, she began reading her Torah when her she was interrupted by her mother's voice.

"Mary! Time for breakfast." She shouted in a bit of a cheerful tone.

"Coming mother!" She called, closing her book and heading downstairs. She gave her mother and father a kiss on the cheek and they smiled.

"Off to work already?" Mary asked, turning her attention to her father who was already grabbing his bags. He nodded, "Yes, I got a new job as a carpenter, it's not the best but it pays enough money to get us through this year. Goodbye you guys." And with that he was out the door.

"So are you ready for your first day of high-school Mary?" Her mother asked in a light tone.

Mary turned her attention back to her mother, "Oh yes, I'm just really hoping that I'll get into that Tankah class by the next semester."

Her mother laughed and gave her a kiss on the cheek, "That's a good girl."

After breakfast Mary waved goodbye to her mother, and made her way out the house. She met up with her best friend Joseph. They had been friends since they were 4 years old, but lately she had been feeling something more for him, though she would never admit it out loud. They walked together and talked about their summer, their favorite Bible verses, and just anything in general.

Before they knew it, they were already at school. Elizabeth ran over to her and pulled her into a tight hug, practically crushing the brown haired girl.

"Elizabeth, I can't breathe!" Mary laughed and Elizabeth let her go, "Oh, I'm sorry. I've just missed you so much this summer! How has everything been?"

"It's been really good actually!" Mary answered. Elizabeth was not only her best friend, but also her cousin. She was older than her by two years so as of now she was a senior. However, Mary was so advanced in her classes that she had plenty of classes with Elizabeth, which she was grateful for because she loved her cousin.

"Hey, I'm going to go meet up with a few of my friends Mary. I'll see you around?" He smiled, and Mary nodded, "Y-yeah of course. Bye!"

"So, how is everything with you and Joseph?" Elizabeth teased, a smirk on her face.

"We're just friends Elizabeth." Mary rolled her eyes.

"Well it's clear you two like each other." Elizabeth pushed, "Why don't you just go over there, flip your hair and say, hey you, I like you." She chuckled, flipping her jet black, straight hair in the process.

Mary rolled her eyes but laughed, "Oh gosh. Have you been watching those teen movies again Elizabeth?"

Elizabeth laughed and playfully shoved her cousin, "Hey! Those movies are really good."

Before they could say anymore they saw Melissa Magdalene talking to the most popular guy in the school, Zechariah. Zechariah was very popular because he was involved in sports and he helped out in the community. He was also a senior, and he wanted to make the most of his senior year. Mary could see that Elizabeth was getting upset with the two of them talking. It wasn't a secret that Elizabeth liked Zechariah, or maybe even loved him. It seemed as if he liked her too but she was unsure.

Melissa noticed Elizabeth was upset, and she couldn't hide the smirk on her face. Melissa had strong disliking for Elizabeth since seventh grade because she was always the girl who got all the friends, and who seemed to get all the attention. Melissa was only a year younger than Elizabeth, so she was a junior at school. She always felt insecure around her, but once she started to braid her hair and put on some makeup, she noticed how much more attention she received...of course it was always from the sinful guys at the school.

She strutted her way over to Elizabeth and Mary, playing with her long, light brown hair. Her eyeliner and foundation was done perfectly, and although they had a dress code at the school, Melissa's outfit was certainly not ankle length, but knee length!

"Well look at who we have here, the two saints of Temple High." Melissa smirked, "How are you Elizabeth? Seems like Zechariah hasn't taken a notice to you yet has he? But you are the most popular girl in school right? So you should be able to win him over. Unless of course someone else gets to him."

"Oh please Melissa why don't you just back off and go ruin someone else's day? Elizabeth spat and Mary looked at the two girls with concerned eyes. This feud between them had been going on for two long.

"Look, I just came to give you a fair warning. Zechariah's not interested in you, alright? So just back up. I guess you don't get everything you want." Melissa snickered, and Elizabeth fell silent.

She then looked to Mary, "And what about you little miss innocent? Why don't you scram already? This is no child's conversation."

"Well it's certainly not a mature one. I'm not one to pass judgement, I'll let the Lord handle that. But I mean, aren't you a junior? I just thought you'd be a little more mature." Mary stated, forcing Melissa to fall silent this time, "Come on Elizabeth, let's go."

They walked passed the pretty girl who didn't even know what to say. She had never been silenced this way.

"Don't let her get to you Elizabeth." Mary said, trying to comfort her friend.

"What if they really do end up going out?" Elizabeth asked with a worried tone. She truly loved Zechariah, she felt it in her heart, and to hear that he could be with another girl, especially a girl like Melissa, it hurt.

"I doubt that would ever happen. Come on, this is your last year here. It's time to live it up. Everything will be fine." Mary said in a comforting tone as they made their way to their first period class.
