Author has written 3 stories for Twilight.
Hey, I'm Taylor Claypool and yes, that is actually my name, well part of it, I've left out a couple parts. I live about an hour away from Downtown Chicago, Illinois, in a suffocating town called Wheaton. I'm a eighth grader at a local middle school with a bunch of other kids starving for a life of their own. I live with my emotional mother Cindy, free-hearted sister Jenessa, and my complex, law-breaking (gasp!) brother, Erik. My father ( Who is the only person on either sides of my family's that I can actually relate to), Gary, lives with his ex-wife, Lisa (who speaks so fast I can hardly understand her), Lisa's billionare fiance (Drew, whom none of us really like because, to be frank, he's an uber ass.), and my flower child, half sister Michelle. Awkward living situation huh? Well, it's a long story, and I'm not in the mood to tell you about it.
I took my first breaths in Dupage Hospital on October 25, 1994--Which makes me fourteen years old. I have golden blonde/dish water brown hair, green eyes with a navy blue border, freckles speckled on my cheeks and nose, and okay teeth. I don't know what my favorite color is, but I'm fond of purple. I love rain and thunderstorms, and that's not because of the Twilight series (meaning no disrespect). I love photography, but I've never actually tried to capture an image myself. I love reading poems, and I do write those, but they're under my lockdown due to shame. Haha, maybe not shame, I'm just not too open to sharing my feelings.
I have a broken heart over a boy named Austin James Funderburk. Who's a freshman in a highschool a town away. We dated for almost a month, he broke up with me a day before our first month anniversary, and I've never cried so hard in my life (I've done a lot of crying too). He has long brown hair that goes a little under his chin and rests above his brown/gold specacled eyes that I love. He has a couple freckles on his face. He has big hands, that I when I would hold his hand I would actually be only holding two of his fingers, and we laughed everytime about it. He took me on walks during sunset and danced with me under streetlights. His kisses made me lips tingle, and his smile made my mind tweak. He brought me to hang out with his friends, and bragged about how pretty he thought I was. He played songs for me on his guitar, and showed me how he could play drums. He invited me to meet his parents. I was invited to his dad's birthday party. He took me to his school's homecoming game (which they lost) and the Homecoming Dance, but you already know this isn't any happy ending. I wore a silky purple dress that went just above my knees, with half my hair up, curled eye lashes, purple eye shadowThere was this girl, Safari (caucasion, a bit chubby, blonde straight hair, pretty blue eyes, clear skin, and a red dress) that suddenly was always with Austin. He danced with her, and well, he would only dance with both of us. I only got one dance alone with him, a slow dance. Are seeing it? I knew as our last dance came to end, that so were we. Our days we leaving us. I had met Safari the night before at the Homecoming game, and didn't like her from the start. At the end of the game, while we were walking to the car to leave, Austin told me that Safari had told him to break up with me to date her, and he had said no. That's when the ache in my chest started, and it hasn't gone since. Two days after the dance, on a Monday (we had no school), I looked on Austin's myspace and there was a poem on his profile that had an ending line I still know by heart: I love you Taylor-But love isn't enough. With a sudden courage, I called Austin and asked what was going on. For the first time, Austin's voice was quiet and hesitant. I think of him everyday. I can still remember how his skin felt on my fingertips.
Sunday, September 14, 2008-Monday, October 13, 2008 NeverTheSame.
Today is Saturday, April 4, 2009, and I've dated Jon Daniel Patton for a month tomorrow. 03/05/09-insertbreakuphere. He's everything Austin isn't. He has very light blonde hair, fair skin and blue eyes. He's shy, but once he starts talking, he's really funny. But, it's the not the same. And I'm sorry for that, but I'm not going to be Jon's Austin.
