Hello Lovelies! I'm Charlotte, I'm 17, and I live in Southern Maine. I'm a true city girl and I can't wait to go back to Boston! I've succesfully wrote one story, with a sequeal, and I'm currently working on another one. I'm a Junior in high school and I'm so excited for this year. Need advice, need to chat, let me know!

    Married in High School? - Chapter Twenty-Five
    "What the hell are you doing?!" I said, pushing him away. I quickly got out of the car, as Jesse protested. He tried to grab my arm but I snatched it back. I unlocked my car and slammed the door hard.
    "Wait!" He said, standing in front of my car. I rolled down my window, and gave him the dirtiest glare I could manage.
    "Get it through your head Jessse, I.am.not.interested. How dare you kiss me when I made it perfectly clear!"
    "I'm sorry! But you have to understand-"
    "I don't have to understand anything. Get out of the f/cking way." I yelled, shifting into drive.
    "Please!"
    "NO!" I yelled, and when he sighed and moved, I took out of the parking lot, screeching along the way. Maybe that wasn't needed, but I was so angry. I don't want Jesse. At all, in any way, shape or form. I love Collin, and that's that. I'm not going to flush 3 years of a relationship down the drain.
    I didn't know where to go, or what to do. I was confused and I didn't know who to talk to or what to say. After driving around for an hour, I thought it would be best to talk to Jesse. Storming off like that wasn't neccasary. I drove past his house, and his car wasn't there. I knew he was at the hospital, and it was only a short drive over.
    As luck would have it, I caught him in the parking lot. I was glad that I didn't have to walk through the hospital, it would have added emotions I didn't want to deal with. I pulled up next to him, and he looked surprised when I got out of the car. "We need to talk," I said, crossing my arms.
    "I didn't expect to hear from you for a while, much less see you." He said, running his hands through his hair. I could tell he was nervous.
    "You had no right to do that," I started, taking a deep breath, "but I was the immature one running away like that."
    "Okay," he said, waiting for me to go on.
    "I think the easiest way to go about this is lay everything out on the table. We won't be able to get over this until we do. Do you want to go grab coffee? This feels too confrentational."
    "Yeah," he said, nodding. "I'll meet you at Grounds."
    "Okay," I said, getting into my car. I had a double edged sword here, I wanted to collect my thoughts during the drive, but I was also telling the truth when I said it was too confrentational. But the drive wasn't quite long enough, because when we both pulled into a parking spot, I still didn't know what I was going to say.
    "So, where should we start?" Jesse asked.

    Married in High School? - Chapter Twenty-Four
    It was funny to tease Collin about Jesse asking me to the dance until it actually happened. The Wednesday after Thanksgiving Break, we had worked at the hospital and we were on our way back to the school where my car was. It was quiet, the music was playing softly in the background. Jesse cleared his throat and my thoughts were redirected on him.
    "So, are you going to the Winter Ball?" He clearly doesn't beat around the bush.
    "Uh, yeah, I'm probably going dress shopping with Lila on Friday."
    "Why so soon?"
    "Well the dance is a week from friday, and we need to coordinate colors with our dates, gets accesories, et cetera." He nodded his head, and I knew he was thinking. I stayed quiet, we were only a minute away from the school.
    The tension was looming over our heads as he parked next to my car. I knew what the next question would be, and I didn't want to answer it.
    "Who are you going to coordinate colors with?"
    "I'm going with Collin, Jesse. I'm going with Collin, because he's my boyfriend, and I love him." This was it, the grand speech I had been planning for weeks. I turned to look at him directly. "I'm glad that we were paired, because you've taught me not to judge people based on rumors, and I appreciate that. You're a really great guy, but I have a boyfriend, and I'm not interested....in changing that right now."
    He sighed and looked away. "I'm really sorry Jesse. I never meant to hurt you."
    "Ahh!" he yelled, slamming his hand down on the steering wheel.
    I jumped, a little afraid, "I think I should go-"
    "No," he said grabbing my arm. "I'm sorry, I'm just frusterated. How do you not see it? You spend more time with me than him, Olivia. What does that say?"
    "That you're my partner for a required project, and we've had to work on it. Since school comes first, Collin and I haven't seen each a lot lately."
    "That's bullshit. You haven't seen him because you feel something between us too. There's no way you haven't."
    "I haven't Jesse, because I have a boyfriend. I've only felt that we've been friends." Suddenly he leaned over, and was very very close to me.
    "Tell me you don't feel something right now," he whispered, staring into my eyes.
    I was frozen, I couldn't move. I gulped, "the only thing I feel is you in my personal space."
    "You're lying, I can tell. Because I know you better than you know yourself," He whispered, and then he closed that inch of space between us. It took my brain a few minutes to realize what had happened.
    Jesse had kissed me.

    Married in High School? - Chapter Twenty-Three
    "Mom, Dad, this is Olivia. Olivia, these are my parents, Margaret and Steve," he said, as I shook hand with his parents.
    "It's nice to meet you Mrs. and Mr. Harrison." I know what you're thinking, Collin and I have been together for two years, but we had only been seriously dating for the past year, so I had met his parents in passing, but not formally like this.
    "Oh call me Margaret dear," his mother said, smiling at me. She had dark hair, and kind eyes with the wrinkled edges. She seemed really nice.
    "And I'm Steve," his father said, shaking my hand as well. It had snow white hair, but a young face. He was taller than Collin, who must get his height from his mother's side.
    It was a normal dinner with normal food, chicken and broccoli and rice. I was grilled with the usual questions from the parents: "Do you like school? What do you want to do after you graduate? Do you have a job?" et cetera et cetera. The highlight of the evening was going out to icecream with Collin after that.
    "I'm sorry, but that cake tasted like cardboard," he laughed, referring to the cake his mother served as dessert.
    "I didn't want to be rude so I took some," I giggled. "Do you think they liked me?" I asked quietly, almost hesitant to ask. Collin took a turn, almost to the icecream place.
    "Of course they did babe," he pulled into the parking spot. "And even if they didn't, I love you, and that's all that matters." We smiled at each other, before I leaned in for a kiss. We got our usuals, moosetracks for me, coffee oreo for Collin. I tried to pay, but Collin insisted that he would. I appreciated that he wanted to be a gentleman and pay for everything, but I wish he would let me pay for the little things. That's why I usually got him a coffee when I was driving over to see him.
    Behind the building were some picnick benches and we sat down, facing each other. We talked about the weather, about school, about random things. The sun was just starting to set, and it was breathtakingly beautiful. "Have you heard the sailor's saying?" Collin asked me, and I shook my head. "Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning."
    "I guess it's full speed ahead captain," I smiled, and he laughed.
    "Full speed ahead first mate." We were quiet for a while, before Collin started to fill the silence again. "We should go see the sunrise sometime, on the beach. How awesome would that be?"
    "That's a great idea!" I said, and in my excitment I flung icecream at myself. "Oops," I giggled. "I'll be right back." I walked quickly around to the front side of the building to get some napkins, and I nearly ran into Jesse.
    "Hey princess, watch where you're going," he teased, laughing.
    "Sorry Jesse," I smiled, trying to make it a friendly smile instead of a flirty smile. I walked by him to grab the napkins and he turned towards me.
    "Hey I was thinking we could do something tomorrow, maybe catch a movie or grab something to eat," he suggested, trying to sound casual.
    "I'm actually working tomorrow at the daycare," I lied, trying to avoid his gaze. I didn't want to lead him on, and going on a date was definitely going in the wrong direction.
    "Oh cool, what about now? What are you doing?"
    "Eating icecream," I laughed awkwardly, and he shook his head.
    "I mean after this," he laughed.
    "I'm...I'm here with-"
    "Hey, did you get lost?" I heard Collin's voice behind me. I saw a brief flicker of hurt in Jesse's eyes before I turned to Collin.
    "Hey I ran into Jesse. We're paired for the marriage...thing." I finished lamely, because I knew they were sizing each other and not paying attention to me. I put my hand on Collin's arm to get his attention. "Collin, this is Jesse, Jesse this is Collin," I said introducing them.
    "Hey man," Collin said, holding out his hand. "Nice to meet you."
    "You too," Jesse said, and then cleared his throat. "I should probably get going, see you later." He turned and left quickly. I shook my head, not knowing what to do with either of them.

    So I know everyone has noticed my lack of posting chapter for Married In Highschool?
    and I have recently been inspired to write an original story based on a local college student's death. Here's the teaser:
    I looked down at the boy who's neck was twisted to the side. I leaned to down to check his pulse which was faint. No one else had heard him fall, no one seemed to be in the building. I was losing precious time, and I had to decide quickly. Bring him to the hospital, or bring him to the people who could fix him in mere seconds with their blood?
    For anyone who doesn't know I live in Southern Maine, and a boy named Troy died last week after a tragic fall down the stair well. He died from severe head trauma among other complications. It has really hit all of the communities hard and my heart goes out to his friends and family.
    So should I continue with Married in Highschool? or should I start this new story?

    I understand if your comfortable with being gay, all the power to you for having the strength to not let society judge you, but I find it uncomfortable and inappropriate when you purposely dress to look different. For example it was our homecoming day so everyone dressed in our school colors, and there is this one sophomore who is openly gay, but he came to school today in fishnets and short shorts. Like, really? It doesn't bother me that you're gay, but it bothers me when you dress like a girl.

    I had lost all hope in the love that I was too stupid to see
    Until we ran into each other at the store, and you started talking to me.
    I didn't show it, but it made me so happy

    Married in High School? - Chapter Twenty
    After a short visit with Ian, Jesse wanted to leave. I could see he was fidgeting, and honestly I was grateful. I felt like I was suffocating, the atmosphere was so heavy. He was quiet walking back to the car, and I let him have his space, because I didn't know what to say either.
    Finally, he broke the silence, "I'm sorry if I made you uncomfortable," he said quietly as he drove. "I just needed to tell someone...let someone know that the rumors aren't true, I'm a different man." He sighed, running his hands through his hair. I never saw him so vulnerable, I didn't know what to do.
    "I'm glad you shared it with me Jesse," I said, finding my voice. "It was important for you to let it out."
    "Do you, uh...want to come back to my house?" He said quickly, "my mum knew we would be working together today, and she invited you over for dinner." He paused for a moment, not even giving me time to think. "You know what? Don't worry about it, it's not a big-"
    "Are you going to let me reply or are you going to keep babbling?" I said, interrupting him.
    "The floor's yours princess," he laughed, staying quiet.
    "I have to check with my parents to make sure my mom didn't plan some random event tonight, but I would love to have dinner with your family," I smiled at him, and I saw him breathe a sigh of relief.
    "Great, we're having italian, is that okay?"
    "Italian food is my favorite!" I laughed, "that is definitely okay with me."
    "Awesome, let me call my mom and let her know," he said, and I was left alone with my thoughts again. I wasn't falling for Jesse, was I? Seeing this soft and vulnerable side of him had definitely changed something between us, but I wasn't sure if it had changed our relationship.
    Lovelies, I am SO sorry that I haven't uploaded at all since last weekend. Let me explain my schedule to you: I get up at 5:30, get ready for school, I have school from 7:30-2:15. I get on the bus (ugh) and get home at 3:15. I have to leave at 3:30 for work, I work from 4- to close, so I get out of work around 9:30, putting me home at 10. And then I wash rinse and repeat. It's horrible. My schedule will change next week however, and I'm hoping that by early October I have a daily routine. But for now, how is the story again? I'm so exhausted that this chapter is pretty short and yucky, but I wanted to but something out there.

    Married in High School? - Chapter Nineteen
    "Where are we going now?" I asked, after stopping by a few more rooms.
    "We have one more stop," he said, pressing the button for the elevator.
    "We're going to a different floor?" I asked, confused.
    "That's typically what elevators are used for," he teased me, laughing when I gave him a look. He pressed another button, and the doors closed, then the elevator lurched to life. I jumped, grabbing Jesse's hand.
    "Um, sorry," I said, awkwardly, pulling my hand away quickly.
    "It's fine," he mumbled back, and the rest of the thirty seconds on the elevator felt like forever. When the doors finally opened, we bumped into each other trying to get out. "You can go first-"
    "Now you can go-"
    "Okay," we both said, then hit each other again. Our laughter broke the awkward tension, and holding his hand out to gesture me out first, I walked into the hall with Jesse trailing behind. "Where do we go?" I whispered, stopping so he could pass me and lead me to the right door. He waved to the nurse at the desk who nodded at us, before returning to her work. Down another dark hallway, and Jesse stopped at a door almost at the very end. He took a deep breath before opening the door, and walking in first, letting me trail behind. I gave him space, as I saw he needed it. He walked over to the bed in the corner of the room, which was surronded by machines. Then he walked over to the window and threw the curtains open, letting a little light shine through.
    I walked over to stand beside the bed, looking at the person laying there. He was hooked up to wires and moniters and tubes running out of everywhere. His face was sunken in, but his facial features were handsome. "Olivia, this is my brother Ian. He overdosed last year, and has been on life support every since." Jesse said quietly. I was shocked, looking from Jesse to the figure-Ian- in the bed. They had the same dark hair, and I kind of recognized him from the photos I saw in Jesse's home.
    "This is why people think I'm a drug dealer. Ian was known for getting the biggest and baddest drugs, and selling them for the most money. He swore he would never do them, but he started hanging out with the people he delt to, and he got into the hard stuff. I found him in the bathroom one morning, spazzing out on the floor. If I had waited any longer, he would have been gone...." he trailed off, looking away. "He's gone anyway, but my mom won't let him go."
    I couldn't believe what Jesse had told me, I couldn't believe I had been so ignorant, so stereotypical, so naive. I felt ashamed for following the crowd, assuming rumors that weren't true. But most of all I was sorry that Jesse had to endure that all because of his older brother, and that nothing could change that.
    Woah! Who didn't see that one coming???

    Married in High School? - Chapter Eighteen
    "First stop is Abigail's room. She's a sweetheart, I'll go in, and then I'll introduce you, so hold on a sec," he said, walking inside the door, and closing it behind him. I looked around the deserted hallway, the nurse's desk on this floor was down the hall. My breath started to quicken and I felt butterflies in my chest. I felt my pockets for my phone, to distract myself, but I kicked myself when I remembered I had left it in the car. What was taking Jesse so long? I should have told him I wasn't going in, this wasn't my thing. Now I'm left here having a panic attack over a empty hallway.
    I leaned against the wall, trying to let my mind wander. But of course what came up was what if there were ghosts in this hallway that I couldn't see. I suddenly felt colder, and I hugged my cardigan closer to my body. Wait...isn't that a sign of a ghost? The tempature suddenly dropping?! Ohmygod, I'm going to get possessed and become all psycho and then I'm going to have to get an exorcism and...
    "Hey, you can...are you okay?" Jesse asked, poking his head through the crack in the door.
    "Yeah, just a little cold." I said, trying to act normal.
    "Well you're standing under an aircondition vent," he said, and I looked up, and he was right. So I wasn't being possessed.
    I laughed, trying to play it off cool," Oh right, that would be why I'm cold," he must think I'm a basket case, whatever I don't care. I followed Jesse in, to see an elderly woman sitting in a chair by the window. "Hi Abigail," I said, sitting down across from her. "I'm Olivia," I held out my hand as a peace offering of sorts.
    She took my hand and patted it gently. "Olivia, that's a nice name. How are you dear?"
    "I'm good, how are you?" I said, wondering why she was still holding my hand.
    "Oh I'm fine, just fine." She said closing her eyes, my hand wrapped tightly in hers. I looked at Jesse, wondering what was going on. He was removing dead flowers from vase and putting new ones in. "I can tell you don't like it here, lots of nervous energy." She said suddenly, "And you've had a lot of pent up emotions lately. You need to let those out." Her face wrinkled in deep thought before she smiled and opened her eyes. "You're on the right track Olivia, keep faith in yourself." She finally let go of my hand and sat back.
    "Um...thank you?" I stammered, not knowing how to reply.
    "Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you, Abigail is a psychic. She reads your energy. Ready to go?" Jesse said, walking over to the window where we sat.
    "So soon?" She said, disappointment on her face. "I really like the company." The old woman looked at Jesse sadly.
    "Sorry Abby, we have to go now, but we will be back on Saturday for a longer visit," she smiled at that, and thanking her for her impromptu reading, we left.
    That was an interesting chapter! Feedback? Sorry about the delay, my mum shut the wifi off until I finished my summer reading -.- I have to work tomorrow during the day, but another chapter tomorrow night?

    Married in High School? - Chapter Seventeen
    "You work in a hospital? You've got to be kidding me," I said in disbelief. "This is a joke right? I could understand you working in like, an automobile shop or something, but this? You're like the janitor or something right?"
    "No, I'm not the janitor," he said angrily, opening his car door and getting out. "Are you coming or not?" he said from the front of the car. I slowly got out, leaving my purse and my phone behind. "You can speak you know," he said, laughing softly, as we walked to the big house-like building.
    "I'm stunned," I laughed. "I didn't think you were the type to visit sick people."
    "Again, people stereotype, and they are usually far from the truth. I want to be a doctor...I think. I haven't really decided yet but I want to go into the medical field."
    "That's...amazing." I said, not knowing what else to say. Hospitals always made me uncomfortable, and I wasn't too keen about walking into one of the largest hospitals in the area. When I was little, my grandma was in the hospital and one time we went to visit, I got lost, and I ended up in a hallway with all these really sick patients. It scared me so bad that I just sat in the corner and cried until a nurse found me.
    "Hi Jesse," the woman at the front desk said, smiling. "You have quite a few patients today," she handed him a folder. "And who is this?" she said, looking at me.
    "Pam, this is Olivia, she will be working with me for the next few weeks," he said, looking through the papers the nurse, Pam, had given him.
    "I just need you to fill out a few things for me hun," she said, handing me a clipboard with a pen and papers. I started to fill them out, and heard Jesse telling Pam about how we went to school together.
    "Oh how nice! Do you want to be a doctor as well?"
    "Oh no," I said, shaking my head, and she laughed.
    "You don't like blood?" She guessed, and I nodded. Smiling, she said, "well you won't be dealing with any bloody patients today, have fun." She pressed a button and a door behind her opened, and I followed Jesse through.
    Sorry guys, I thought I was going to post last night but I forgot I had a party! I'll post again tonight/tomorrow, I'm doing school shopping! Sorry the chapters are kinda short, I have to split them up or else they will be too long and witty won't post them.

    I got into Jesse's car, with a little prodding from him. Sitting down with a huff, I took my phone out of my bag, and texted Collin, letting him know we wouldn't be meeting for lunch.
    "Can you do anything without letting him know?" Jesse said bitterly.
    "For your information, I had a lunch date with him. I had to let him know that I wasn't blowing him off." I shot back.
    "Sorry I ruined your lunch time plans with lover boy," he muttered.
    "What did you just say?"
    "I bet you heard me."
    "Where the hell are we going? Some warehouse to deal drugs?"
    "Oh, how original." he snorted, laughing at me. "You don't think I've heard that one before? People come up to me all the time asking what the rate of weed is these days. The cops make monthly visits to me to 'check up' on things. Just because Ian was like that doesn't mean I am," he shook his head before continuing. "I'm not a drug dealer, I don't even do drugs. I don't drink, I don't smoke, and this may surprise you, but I get good grades. And this is where I work." He signaled to the right and we pulled into a...

    Can I not make any decisions by myself?
    Decide how my life goes?
    If I want a tattoo,
    or my nose pierced,
    or to move to a European country,
    that's what I've decided to do
    I will always be your little girl,
    but it's my life,
    and this is what I'm going to do
