I saw the movie for a second time this weekend and thought of this idea after words plus when I heard this song, I thought of Spider Man. This song in the new version by Ella Mae Bowen. I hope you guys like it!
Chapter 1: Just Like Our Last
I stared into his big green eyes through the glass door before turning the gold knob and opening the door and stepping outside, closing the door behind me. I looked down at my feet, not daring to look into his eyes.
"When were you going to tell me?" he asked as I kept staring that the ground. "Damn it, Anne," he grabbed my shoulders and shook me a bit, making me look at his face. "When were you going to tell me you were moving to New York?"
I glared at him as I shoved him off. "Last I checked," I said as I took a step back, walking into my front door. "I didn't give a damn about your opinion! As I recall, the last time we saw each other, I screamed at you that I never wanted to see you again"
"You can't be like that-" he said as he took a step towards me and tried to touch me.
"Don't, Noah," I said as I nudged him away. "I don't want to hear it" I turned around and touched the door knob.
"Anne," I was about to turn the handle. "I still have hope for us"
It was silent. If I really wanted to, I could turn around, run into Noah's arms, kiss him until my lips couldn't take it anymore, and stay in his embrace forever but that would be very stupid of me. I always said to myself that I would never let a man walk over me. I would never let him take my heart away from me and shatter it into a million pieces. I promised my daddy since I was 8 that I would never do that…and I would keep that promise.
I turned my head, only benign able to see Noah out of my corner of my eye. "I did too" I said.
Noah grabbed my shoulders and turned me around to look at him. "Then stay," he said. "Please" His hands where cover covering my cheeks.
I grabbed both of them and set them down. "I can't, Noah," I said, tears now filling up my eyes. "You broke my heart when you cheated on me with her"
"I won't do it again," he said. "I'll change. She's out of my life now. I promise, I won't hurt you ever again"
I shook my head. "I don't believe you"
Noah's eyes stared watering. "I promise, babe. I won't do it again. I'm sorry"
I let go of his hands. "Noah…Roseboro is small town...too small for me. I think New York maybe better for me"
"But-" Before he could finish what he was staying, I turned around and quickly open the door and walked inside, closing the blinds on the door and sank to the ground, crying into my knees, soaking my jeans.
"Annabelle, wake up," I familiar voice said to me and I felt my body being shaken. "Annabelle, we're here," I opened my eyes slowly and immediately saw an apartment building across from me. I lifted my head off the cold window and turned to see Ashley smiling at me as she leaned in through the open door on the other side of me. "You got to get up and bring you stuff upstairs" she backed away and walked up to the moving truck behind the car.
I stretched my arms and legs as I slowly got out of the car and limped over to the moving truck and immediately went to the back to put my stuff away to our new apartment upstairs. After we put our stuff in the apartment and had everything organized, Ashley prepared dinner and my father, her and I sat down and ate.
"You're gonna love it here, Annabelle," Ashley said, trying to get me excited. "The shopping, the rich history and you're new school. I actually graduated from Midtown Science with flying colours!" she said in a cheerful tone.
I stopped picking at my salmon and gave her a fake smile. "That's great, Ash" I said before my 'smile' disappeared and looked back into my dinner.
"Annabelle" my father said sternly. I looked up at him as he gave me a glare.
"Sorry" I said to him. I then turned to Ashley and 'smiled'.
Ashley smiled back. "Tomorrow, we'll go to Midtown and get you're papers and after that, I'll take you shopping so we can get you some new clothes for school"
"Sound like fun, Ashley"
"Annabelle please! Call me mom" I stared at her and didn't say anything as I took a bite out of my salmon.
After supper, I played on my guitar for a bit and then went on Facebook to respond to at least 100 messages from my friends asking about New York. After that, I drifted off to sleep.
"Annabelle" I groaned as I heard her come into my room. "Time to get up! We gotta go to your school today. I'll meet you downstairs by the car" she said as I opened my eyes and saw her back walking out the door.
I immediately changed and went downstairs to see Ashley leaning against the car. She lifted up her sunglasses and looked at my outfit from my shorts all the way to my floral tank and my jean jacket.
"You're wearing that" she asked shock.
I looked down at my outfit and shrugged shoulders. "What's wrong with it?" I asked as I crossed my arms over my chest and glared at her.
"Nothing sweetheart but this isn't Roseboro anymore. It's New York. You might not freeze now in the middle of September but you will when it hits October. Anyway, are you ready?" she smiled as she walked around the car and got into the driver's seat.
I rolled my eyes and flopped myself into the passenger's seat.
"Seat belt," she said. I looked at her and 'smiled' as I strapped myself in. I stared out the window the whole time, not wanting to even talk to Ashley. "Ariel e-mailed" Ashley said.
"She did?" I asked as I kept staring out the window.
"Yeah, she says she loves it there and she can't wait to go on break and come here so she can see the new place. How great is that?" Ashley said in a cheerful mood.
Ariel is my older sister. She's only two years older than me and has started her first year at the University of North Carolina so she was lucky enough to stay in North Carolina and not taken against her will to New York. It seems now days that the only family I really had was Ariel. Don't get me wrong, I love my dad but Ashley's another exception. She tries to blind me with that 'motherly love' but I honestly can't stand it. I sometime think it's all just for show but Ariel and my father don't believe me.
"Here it is," Ashley said as she pulled up into the high school parking lot. "Midtown science" Ashley turned off the car and stepped out of the car.
I let out a groan as I did the same. Ashley started walking towards the school as I followed after her. Midtown Science High was huge. I think it was bigger then Roseboro.
As I stared at the school in awe, Ashley tugged onto my jacket. "Come on, Anna," she said. "Let's go to the office"
We started walking up to the front door and walked right through into the crowd of student. It's funny. It was like the moment Ashley and I stepped through those blue doors, they all stopped and stared. It was like I was in the movie where I'm the bandit of the town and their the innocent people watching me in fear…but in reality there was the sound of phones going off and whispers from every direction.
"Let's go, Anna" Ashley said as she started tugging my arm. I started following Ashley to the office.
Ashley walked down the hallway like she didn't fear anything, or anyone, out there. As for me, I was shaking inside.
Everyone's eyes were on me. I felt like I just walked into the plains of Africa. The guys were like hyenas, checking me out to see if I was 'tasty' and would be easy to 'scavenge' off of. The girls, however, were like lionesses. Protective of the 'pride' and afraid that I was going to steal it from them. Then there were the others in the side lines just waiting for the show to go on and waiting for the buzzer to go off to tell them to get the hell out of here.
I stared sheepishly at the ground as I couldn't wait to get to the office.
There was only one person that really caught my attention though. It was this guy. Quite tall with messy brown hair and light brown eyes with a camera around his neck and holding a skateboard over his shoulder. He didn't look like the type of guy that you'd think would stand out in a crowd but for some reason, to me he was. We made eye contact for a second before I quickly looked back a head of me and followed Ashley inside.
After we got everything sorted out with the principal, we got a tour of the school and gave me all the latest hint and tips for getting around the school. After he was done showing us around, Ashley took me out for coffee and then we went shopping for some new clothes on which she insisted I get.
After shopping, I just couldn't wait to get home. I immediately went upstairs and straight to my room where I locked the door behind me and set down my backs and ran to my computer to check my e-mail. All I got were 10 lousy e-mails from Noah.
Babe, I'm sorry about everything. Please come home
Babe, Please call me. We should talk about this.
I then shut down the computer and let out a groan. "Please just leave me alone" I said to myself.
I guess now is the time where I start off at the beginning and tell you imaginary people about my life. My name is Annabelle Jamison. I'm a 17 year old guitar playing singer who just broke up from her cheating boyfriend and moved to New York City from Roseboro, North Carolina. I live with my step-mom, Ashley, and my Dad, Steven and have one older sister, Ariel, going to the University of North Carolina. This is my life, be ready for one hell of a ride.
So...How was it? Did you guys like it? Should I continue? Review and let me know if I should or not!
