Typical teenager Joanna Gore Alex is less than thrilled to be the new girl in a new school. During her first day, she quickly learns teachers obviously favor the popular students and her classmates have no interest in being nice. Just when Joanna believes the day couldn't get any worse, she has a slightly embarrassing and awkward altercation with one of the hottest guys at school. But as the school days pass by, Joanna forms friendships with some unexpected classmates and discovers exactly how strong she can be against the school's mean girl. When Joanna is drawn to one of her brother's new friends, Frank, she feels like she's known him forever. Even his full name - Francis James - sounds familiar to her for some reason. Joanna quickly learns life isn't all about handing assignments in on time (although it is important), she discovers the meaning of friendship, family, heartache, and most of all, love.View More
Announcement!!I've received several comments about what transpired in Chapter 2 (Ignoring Hoes)Some are saying I took it too far, others are saying that's unrealistic, while few others said I should delete and rewrite it as it seems harsh.What I have to say is, I'm not deleting or removing that part, becauseFirstly: It's my story.Secondly: I've edited in, and that's as far as I can go with it.Lastly and importantly: It is the only original part of my book. Meaning, it happened to me back in my high school days, sadly, I couldn't stand up for myself, which is why I wrote that and made Joanna speak up and put the teacher in her place.Shit happens in this life, most things you find unbelievable are taking place in areas you don't know about.I'm sorry if it seems disrespectful to anyone, but it's staying that way.If you a
Joanna's POV"Come over here you two." I smiled and motioned over the two most protective friends I had and still have. They didn't blink or waste a second after I spoke because in a flash I was in the middle of an emotional hug as Harmony kept whispering sweet things in my ear while Tenda sobbed on my shoulder."I love you both so much." I sighed and gave them each a kiss on their foreheads as my heart squeezed in affection.They pulled away a little over a minute later and Tenda wiped away her tears before she tried to give me a stern look as she spoke."Never do that again young lady, or I swear I would journey to the beyond and drag you back here to spank your ass, got that? She glared with fresh tears breaking through once more, to which I nodded and pulled her for a hug of mine."Pave way for the future sister in-law." Fahvour grinned as she walked over to us to
Joanna's POVThey both whipped around, till their eyes landed on me."Where have you been young lady," Mom scolded with a glare I didn't take to heart, due to the happiness I saw dancing in her eyes."A hug would suffice." I chuckled, seeing as I had already expected that reaction from her."GOD I've missed you," She croaked, and immediately pulled me in for a hug."Its okay mum." I laughed into her neck when I felt her squeeze me tight."Hey Dad," I called in a wide smile at him over mom's shoulder, to which he responded with that same look Francis had on his face when my eyes landed on him <disbelief>."It's okay Dad, am real," I voiced out, and I guessed that was all the reassurance he needed because the next thing I knew, I was being hugged by the two most important people in my life."My beautiful da
Frank's POVIf I didn't catch sight of her beautiful brown eyes as she blinked, I would have dismissed it, but instead, my heart froze, my breath hitched, I was afraid to move, breathe even,because of the fear that I could wake up and realize it was all a dream or my imagination.It seemed she guessed my turmoil, hence her eyes flew open once more, and this time it stayed that way. I saw her lower them from where they were focused, on the ceiling and then slowly, they found its way to my face."Oh my GOD, oh GOD." I sighed in gratitude and relief as my body relaxed when the realization of her being awake hit me."Oh my GOD, Oh GOD, you are awake,Ana you are awake. Oh GOD I've missed you," I spoke, in a bid to confirm I was in no way dreaming and buried my face into her shoulder as I hugged her, after her eyes remained on me, those beautiful eyes I missed
Frank's POVI nodded in response to the doctor's question as my brain shifted back to space mode while I watched him do his normal routine check up."Any news? I asked curiously, my voice emotionless."She's fine." He smiled, "The shock has passed, so she's all good. It's left to her to wake up on her own whenever her brain decides to""How about her memory? Elvis questioned, to which the doctor sighed."I can't say, its a 50/50 issue. Medically there's nothing wrong with her brain but there's a possibility that the brain kind of shut down as a result of too much information and flashbacks," He blurted."But on the bright side, it might just be a way for the brain to absorb the much information it received, resulting in the temporary shut down. So there's a possibility of her still retaining her memory. Like I said it's a 50/50 issue, it'
Frank's POVI regained consciousness a little over an hour later according to the nurses and was told I had a panic attack.When I asked about Joanna, it was relayed to me that she was admitted in the same hospital but in a different room.I immediately traced my steps to the location after I was told the room number and went straight in search of her, despite the protests of the nurses and other patients in the same ward with me, to have some rest.Now there I was sitting beside her bed as she lay still, the steady rise and fall of her chest plus the lack of wires connected to her, the only assurance she was asleep and not in a coma.I had been sat in that same position for hours. I refused to speak to anyone no matter how hard they tried, the nurses, the doctor,her parents,Elvis, even her friends, I spoke to no one.They tried to find out what happe
Joanna's POV. The first day I met him when he came home with Elvis from school.How he fought a boy in my class for calling me a stammerer when Elvis wasn't in there.How he accepted my friends and joined us in our every activities. Even when it was against his class he would be on our side, which would make Elvis happy and angry sometimes.I also recalled he would smile when he saw me and his eyes shine a bright colour. As little as we were then, he always made me feel special.He would always gang up with me during hide and seek games plus other activities against the others and that day wasn't an exception.From what my little brain could take note of, it was a good day, we all ca
Joanna's POV"You good Ana? He asked as he glanced briefly at me when he noticed my silence."Yeah," I replied with a shrug. "I'm just lost in thought""Okay then, get your head out of those silly thoughts, let's eat." He smiled.This shocked me as I looked around and realized we were already at the hotel. "Wow! That was fast!" I exclaimed"What are you waiting for, come on." He grinned, to which I shook my head and giggled when he held my hand after I had stepped out of the car."Why are you gigling? He questioned. "What's funny"I scoffed in response, in which he rolled his eyes and left me to go place our order while I looked for a good spot for us to sit as we entered the restaurant area of the hotel.I spotted one, and walked over. I got comfortable in my seat beside the window that overlooked the fun part
Joanna's POV"Umm, hmm." I cleared my throat not able to co-ordinate words to say."Umm, why are you putting on a suit in this blazing sun? I questioned, finally able to say something tangible.He didn't reply, rather he stood there grinning from ear to ear."What are you doing? I asked, my voice a bit louder and clearer this time."We my lady are going out on a date," He voiced out, and let himself in."Date? Why? I questioned a bit flustered as I tried to hide my blush."Follow me if you want to find out." He smirked, his words having an underlying meaning that I couldn't comprehend."Alright," I blurted out hesistantly. "Can you wait a bit while I put on something reasonable to wear?"You look fine to me." He winked, and I felt the invisible butterflies in my stomach begin their gymnastics.
