The indie band that was performing was not as bad as I thought... Their song had a nice jazzy swing to it, which I really liked. But their lyrics were kinda trash...
Their lead singer, Kelsey? I think, had the most beautiful sapphire eyes, and the raven black hair I've ever seen in my life. Strange mix, but he was still gorgeous. Blue eyes and jet black hair... Sigh... He sang with so much passion, making the lyrics sound nice, and it made my heart thump loudly. I could never attract a guy like him. I wasn't handsome, or even close to it.
I had dark, messy charcoal black hair, which covered some of my eyebrows, dark brown eyes, and a basic generic face, except the fact that I was Korean...
But all the guys I had an interest in were way outta my league.
Kelsey continued to sing his heart out as I admired him from afar. I was standing in the back of the cafe, sipping on my dark roast coffee just watching them perform.
"You are the only one for me" He sang, "I'll be waiting for you because I know he's not the one for you..."
Hot damn his voice was enchanting.
When their last song, Midnight Babe, ended, I decided to go home and ready for the third day of school.
The reason why I was alone at the cafe was that I never hung out with people because I didn't have any friends; I preferred to be alone. I walked home with my earbuds in, trying to muffle all the noise going on around me of people chatting, and cars driving by. I finally reached the bus stop. Taking public transit was a nightmare. I hated it. There are too many people near you, talking to you... Ugh.
I soon arrived home, and I flung my ivory-coloured hoodie off, which landed on the red, velvet, sofa. I quickly ran up the stairs and reached my bedroom. I checked the time on my phone. 7:54 am. I needed to be at school by 8:30 am, so I had time.
I got dressed into an oversized army-green sweater, black ripped jeans, and my newly bought checkered Vans. I ruffled my air and spritzed some light cologne on myself.
Going into the washroom, I grabbed my toothbrush and started to brush my teeth. I stared at myself in the mirror, feeling self-conscious.
"I feel so ugly..." I said as I ran my hand through my hair. I spit out the leftover toothpaste in my mouth and rinsed my mouth.
I grabbed my bag and headed down the stairs.
"Mooom!" I called for her.
There was no response. She probably wasn't home again. Business trip maybe...
My mom was definitely a very busy woman, always on her feet doing something. She was always going on business trips that took days to even months for her to come back. I rarely see her anymore.
Thinking about it made me upset.
I just decided to take the bus to school, just in case I was going to be late. Public transit in Toronto was the worst thing ever. Everyone coughed everywhere, sneezed everywhere and just contaminated the claustrophobic space since it was the awkward month of September. Only a psycho would take the TTC (Public transit).
I trudged my way over to the bus stop, where the bus was standing. Obviously ready to take off. I sped up, waving my hands so the bus driver can see. He definitely saw me, glared at me, then took off.
Oh, the Thursday gods have brought me shitty luck... That's great!
It was 8:23 and I was going to be late if I waited for the next bus, which would come in 10 minutes, but walking would take 20, so I just decided to walk.
Since I arrived late, all the attention was on me. Great... The third day of school is starting off so well... Inside, I was screaming because of all the attention. I didn't like it at all. I could feel their eyes digging into my body.
I slowly handed my late slip to the teacher, Ms. Coyne, and quickly escaped the attention by running over to my desk.
"Loner boy's here!" I heard someone shouting, as the owner of the voice howled with laughter.
Great. Attention's on me again.
I buried my face into my desk and tried to ignore everything around me.
Class ended quickly, which was great because any class with Ms. Coyne is a trainwreck. She doesn't know how to handle the class, let alone do anything.
I checked my schedule and it said that I had French next period, but I accidentally left my french supplies in my locker because I was in a rush in the morning. I walked over to where my locker was. It was pinkish-red in colour. I put in my combination, and the lock clicked open. Opening my locker, I grabbed my French textbooks, books, and binders out of it and stuffed it in my bag lazily.
Once I was done, I slammed my locker shut, quickly turned around because I was aware that I would be late for class.
Turning around quickly was a big mistake.
I bumped into an insanely gorgeous guy. He had dirty blond hair and honey coloured eyes. His jaw was sharper than a knife and his body was like an angel's. I'm pretty sure his name was Jonah Levitan, the school's Golden Boy, lacrosse team captain, football team captain, soccer team captain, basically all the sports team's captain. He was also the one with the highest grades in the class- no, school, and was the boyfriend of the cheer captain, Oliva Hemsworth. Both blond, rich, and powerful; they have the school on their knees
"Oh! I'm sooo sorry! I should have watched where I was going!" Jonah panicked.
"N-no i-its my fault!" I stuttered.
"Ah! I should be more careful next time!!!" He took a good look at me. "Wait! Arent you in my French class?"
Oh yeah, he was. I never really paid attention to anyone in my classes.
I just nodded my head.
"Do you want to maybe... walk with me?" He asked, scratching the back of his head.
I shook my head slowly.
"Oh, bummer..." He sounded disappointed, but his attitude quickly changed, "Well, I'll see you in class maybe?" He beamed.
I shrugged and had a lop-sided smile on my face. He smiled back then quickly left afterwards, probably knowing that was going to be late.
As I was walking to class, I saw a group of people circling around what looked like a fight. Everyone was recording or taking pictures, putting the fight on their Insta story, or sending streaks. I didn't want to get any closer just in case someone comes up to me, to talk to me.
"HEY, GUYS THERE'S A FIGHT GOING ON!" Someone yelled, waving some people over. "I THINK ITS HUNTER AGAIN!"
