Chapter 5

"Breath!" I said first and watched patiently as she inhaled deeply. "Don't worry. I've been keeping this secret for 3 years. There's no way he'll be able to see through my disguise.

"Alright." Abby responded obviously reassured.

My driver dropped Abby off at her house. Like me she has two house that are connected to each other by the basement. When we got to my house I quickly texted Abby.


I went upstairs to change my clothes and all that stuff that people do to get ready to sleep. I'm not one of those people that sleep in whatever they're wearing and not even bothering to take their makeup off. I was about to sleep when I heard my doorbell ring. Who could be at my house this late at night?

I went to answer it and saw a guy standing. He seemed to look around my age. He had blonde hair with brown eyes which appeared dark cold. Regardless of his cold looking eyes, he looked kind of cute. When he saw me, his mouth opened and closed like a fish.

"Do you need anything?" I asked him trying tone sweet since I was very cranky at the moment.

"I'm so sorry! I must have the wrong house..." His voice fading at the end, but his eyes never leaving mine.

"Would you like me to see the address your heading too?" I offered.

"Yeah! Here." He said handing me a slip of paper. My eyes widened when I saw the address. That house was the house next to mine. It wasn't any house though. That was my other house. As in the house I use for my daily life at school. The house I use for my known nerdy self.

"It's right over there." I said pointing to my other house after I recovered from the shock. Then I added, "I don't think anybody's in there though."

"Oh okay." He said somewhat disappointedly.

"Do you want me to leave a message for you?" I asked.

"Sure." He said brightening up. "Can you tell the adults there that a guy named James want to talk with them sometime and also give them this letter?" He asked giving me an envelope.

"Okay." I agreed and eventually he left and I went up to sleep with all my thoughts.


"So he just left you with that envelope?" Abby asked me in disbelief after I told her everything that happened with that James guy yesterday.

"Yep. And-" I got cut off by a little girl.

"Can you sign this book for me? I'm a hug fan!" She said to both Abby and me. We both nodded and signed her book and she walked away with a huge smile.

"Anyway what were you saying?" Abby asked me.

"Okay. Well, this sounds very creepy, but I feel like I've known him." I said trying to organize all my thoughts.

"As if you've seen him before?" Abby asked with wide eyes.

"No, I don't think I've ever seen him before. I really do think I know him though. As if I'm connected to him." I said trying to make it sound reasonable. Abby just shook her head with a smile.

"Delusional..." She said quietly to herself. I laughed.

"Am not!"

"Are..." Abby started but her voice trailed away.

"Are you okay?" I asked worriedly.

"Look at that hottie." She said not taking her eyes off the person she was looking at. I turned around and follow my eyes to where she was staring. I saw a blonde boy standing there with brown eyes casually paying for his coffee and muffin. He seemed familiar. Then I gasped when I realized who that is.

"Abby! That's the boy I was talking about!" I whisper-yelled at her.

"Well, he sure is hot." She said smiling. I playfully scoffed and I watched as he exited the shop. He didn't see me did he? I wonder if he did? He didn't come up to me to ask me anything about last night though... Wait. Why do I care?

"Ariah! Abby said snapping me back to reality.

"Yeah?" I asked her.

"You were zoning out. Oh me!" She said jokingly at the end.

"Of course I could never zone out on you." I said playfully and stretching out the word never.

Later on in the day, Abby went back to her house and I went back to mine. I remembered to dye my hair back to blonde so I did that first. After all that, I started reading a book. I was reading 'Romeo and Juliet' when I remembered something. I didn't do the homework that Brit asked me to do. Well, more like demanded me to do. I quickly grabbed my wallet and phone off the counter and asked my dad to drive me to school. My parents and I don't talk a lot unless I'm in my model disguise. They don't completely ignore me or anything when I'm in my normal disguise, but they always preferred to have a famous and gorgeous daughter. When I got to school I walked to the back of school and tried to open the backdoor.


I know what you're thinking. Why would it be unlocked? It's the weekend so they would lock it just in case somebody tried to break in! Well, it's always worth a try so don't judge me. I'm still a teenager, so I have to do some pretty weird stuff while I'm young so I can tell my grandchildren. I'm getting side tracked. I took out a bobby pin in my hair and broke it in half. I took one half and slid into the keyhole. It took me only about 10 seconds until I got it to open. I've been practicing... you know... just in case.

I ran into the school and into my classroom and was relieved to see the pile Brit's books still on my desk. I walked over to the desk and grabbed the books. I started to walk out of the classroom, but stopped in my tracks when I saw a piece of paper on the teacher's desk. Forgive me for being the nosy person I am, but I just had to look at the paper. I set the books on the desk and held up the piece of paper. I scanned over the paper and noticed that it was about a new student transferring to our school. There was a picture of a boy to the side and he looked oddly familiar. I read his name and I swear that my heart skipped a beat. His name was... James Lim.
