07/10/2013 Bali Rai

I thought for a moment. He was smelly, weird, and grimy; and carried a fake knife – not exactly BF material. But there was something about him too, something that intrigued me. I felt like Bella in Twilight, just not as crap or annoying. Besides, Markus wasn’t dead.

I guess it’s the look in his eyes, those dreamy eyes or maybe the way he struts around, like a celebrity. Actually come to think of it, it’s probably his attitude. He’s a bad boy, everyone wants one of them, and the boys want to be like him. Even Perrie fancies him and she’s always one to fit in with the wave of girls and talk about geeky boys and stuff …

I’m unsure whether to approach him or not, he’s so mysterious and hard to read. Does he even like me??? That’s really concerning. You know what, flip that, I’m just going to ask him out, I don’t care if I get stick or not… I really like Markus.

My stomach churned as I approached him, his blond hair waving in the late, summers breeze. Suddenly my nerves kicked in. There was a part of me that wanted to turn back to my group of smart and nerdy gang, whereas the other side of my heart urged me to his lunch table. Next to me were my charming, witty, best mate Kristy and her utterly gorgeous boyfriend Kevin. Kristy and Kevin were a match made in heaven, their personality’s fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, despite Kristy’s unusually (slightly freaky) obsession with pies.

I strolled nervously towards him, trembling in my ever so geeky school shoes. My father bought them for me: I didn’t like them but for his sake I wore them. There I stood, at his table full of popular, cute boys, all on the school’s football team. Their hair flowed through the warm winds and all of them were absolutely amazing. But there sat Markus. He wore his snazzy shirt and his swanky, blue jeans. ”Oi! Ginger!” Shouted one of the cute boys, though I ignored him. Terrified I was that Markus would notice me…

“Yo mark! My mate Ellysia has somethin’ to tell ya’!” Yelled Kevin annoyingly.

“What do you want beautiful?…” He joked; my cheeks turned redder than my hair. His stunning blue eyes glimmered in the light and stared at me. Just me and him. In our own magical world! Suprisingly he read my mind and understood my feelings. He went from being spoilt and hateful to a lovesick puppy. My lovesick puppy…

Suddenly, all his superiority had gone; He smiled at me, tilting his head a little to the side, but still staring straight at me. He hesitated for a second, almost like he was shy! Of me! “Did you want something babe?” Markus asked. He just called me babe?! Okay Ellysia focus, this is your chance: “Um yeah it’s just… I mean you don’t have to… but I just wondered…” I stuttered, my head was too full of his piercing blue eyes to concentrate on what I was trying to say. Kristy elbowed me prompting me to go on, the other boys had started to laugh at me, even Kevin, everyone was laughing, everyone accept Markus. He was still smiling, waiting for me to carry on. “I wondered if you wanted to…” I stopped again, what was I doing? He opened his mouth, this was it, he would start laughing to… “Go out?” My heart skipped. what?! Had the Markus Collins, the hottest boy in school, just asked me out? His smile broadened at my obvious shock. “Me. You. Friday. Cinema. Yeah?” I finally found my voice as I realised what was happening. “Yeah. Sounds great.” The confidence in my voice surprised me, I even managed a flirty smile. I could still hear all his ‘mates’ sniggering and whispering as I walked away, but for the first time, I didn’t care.

I didn’t like her, I don’t even know why I said yes. She was annoying. She reminded me of my little sister more than ever. But I know if I broke her heart her brother would break my face; of course I would never tell anyone that. I hated my new school; I hated the people in it even more. But after burning down my last school, I promised my dad I would try not to embarrass him. He was drunk when I told him of course, just like every other day.


When I was younger my mum would give him a sleeping pill to calm him down. She doesn’t live with us anymore. She walked out, along with my younger sister. I miss her of course; maybe that’s why I said yes to Ellysia she reminded me of her. I dread going home to that dilapidated shack which I have to call my home. But I don’t know how I’m gonna pay for the cinema tickets, I hope she brings her own money.


 I hate the name Markus, I prefer Matt. It suited me, after all people have been walking over me my whole life. For instance Dad, always putting me down. If Mum was here this would never happen. None of this would have happened. I wouldn’t be going to this stupid school; I wouldn’t be going out with a stupid, annoying girl.


What would Dad say if I told him?  He would laugh… and then open another beer.

So I carried on trying to be brave when I saw a note that read, "Leave here and never return or you will be in danger." I said, "There is no such thing as ghosts." Then I saw a skeletons crowding around me. I tried to escape, but I couldn't. So I had to use a little karate. With my karate moves, I escaped and the skeletons and ghosts never haunted me again.
