Where it all
Do you ever sense you are being watched?
Well every day, every
hour and every minute someone is watching you. Someone has seen every
embarrassing thing you have ever done.How
creepy is that? Well in my life I have
found it to be true.
It all started when I was a little girl. I remember spinning around in circles and
watching my dress twirl around me. When I stopped and I felt weird, uneasy, and
I got cold chills.I was being watched
and I didn’t know by whom and I couldn’t see anyone. I just continue to spin in
circles. Eventually the sensation wore off and I forgot about it.
As I got older the feeling was more persistent.So I started to listen to it. I was standing
at my locker getting my things ready to go home. When I became aware someone
was spying one me. I glanced around
thinking it’s my boyfriend Damon. I don’t see him at first then he appears from
around the corner walking towards me. Just the sight of him makes me forget
about everything else. I mean who doesn’t love a tall dark and handsome man? Well, this girl does! My boyfriend Damon Marks
is just that. He has an extreme athletic frame with abs that seem as hard as
stone. He loves his every day jeans and T-shirt that show off his strong
comforting arms. His troublesome Blue eyes remind me every day of his devilish
We have only been
dating about a month and so far everything is going well. Only thing is he has
this annoying little jealous streak that really pisses me off sometimes. He
always thinks I am interested in other guys. He gets so uptight about other
guys mentioning anything about me. Even when his friend jarred asked him if I
had been working out?Which is just a
simple question, but he took it as he was interested in my body. Really? So now every time Jarred is around he gives
him the death stare to mark his territory. Boys can be so complicated. It’s not like I am
the home coming Queen or anything.I guess you could say that I am pretty.
I am about 5’7 and I
have long blonde wavy hair and light blue eyes. I have a curvy athletic frame
with a good tan. I am kind of a shy
girl. I like to hang out with my friends, read books and watch teen drama
shows. The thing I love most is shopping with my mom. Every girl’s got to love
As Damon and I are walking home I become aware that I am
being stocked.You know, that cold chill
that runs down your spine. Yep, that the feeling. I start looking around for someone
watching me. I don’t see anyone. There are people walking down the street on
the other side, however none of them are looking our way. What is wrong with
me? Maybe I am just crazy! I snuggle in closer to Damon as we walk home. If
there is a creep maybe he will get the point that I am taken.
Damon drops me off at my front door.I hear my dad yelling for me to hurry up,
because we have dinner plans. “Oh joy” dinner tonight probably another sea food
restaurant. I hate seafood.Damon pulls
me in for a goodbye hug while whispering in my ear I will call you later Babe.
The car ride over is torcher.
My parents are listening to oldies and singing. I think my ears are going to bleed
from the noise. I grab my Ipod and put on Nickleback as loud as I can to drown
out that terror.
We finally arrive at Bob’s Crabs another sea food restaurant.
As we walk in I am hit with the overwhelming smell of seafood. We are seated
right away at a wooden booth with really hard seats. There are a few cast nets
with sea creatures in them on the walls as well as fishing décor. Could it be
any more cliché? I search the menu for
anything not sea food related. All I can
find is some chicken strips and fries on the kids menu. Why couldn’t my parents
choose a steak restaurant instead of the same ole same seafood theme every
While waiting for our food to arrive my parents are talking
about something that happened today at work. Jake, my dad, is the head surgeon at Mercy
Hospital and my mom Melissa is a nurse in the ICU at the same hospital. I excuse myself to the bathroom. The bathroom is hideous.
There is toilet paper everywhere. “oh,” you don’t want to know the rest. I go straight to the first stall. Did u know
that it is usually the cleanest? Most people by pass the first stall. Yeah, they
did a study about it. So since I read that I always try the first stall first
and most of the time it is the cleanest. Let’s just say that this one wasn’t too awful.
As I am walking out I take a look in the
mirror and realize that I have part of my skirt tucked into my underwear and
tights. OMG!! That would have been so embarrassing. Thank God no one was in
here to see it. If I had walked out into the restaurant like that I might never
recover from the embarrassment. An unexpected disturbing feeling washes over me
I am immediately aware of the sensation of being observed, but I am in the girl’s
restroom. It is completely empty and there are no windows. There is no way
someone is watching me. This is so alarming! Am I going insane?
I shrug it off and walk back to the
table dinner has arrived. I notice that
my parents are suspiciously peering at me.
Mom asks, did something happen while
you were in the restroom? Arissa dear you’re a little flush. Are you feeling
well? Oh my God Arissa are you pregnant?
What? Mom! No way are you crazy?
I just had a little incident in the girl’s
room. It was kind of stupid.
Oh ok darling. I know you have that
new boyfriend. I think his name is Damon. I don’t know if you guys are doing anything,
but I would hope that you are using protection.
Wow! Really Mom?
I am not having SEX and I do not plan
on doing so until I am married. I have more respect for myself than that.
Well dear I hope that you do, but
sometimes you live in the moment and things can happen.
Well I can promise you if that happens
that I will use all necessary precautions. I don’t want any children before I
go off to college. I want to go to college and finish it. Then get married, buy
a house and start a family. I don’t want to end up pregnant and ruin all that I
have worked for.
Speaking of which, I talked to the
school counselor today. We think that I should apply to all the Ivy League
schools. Like Harvard, Duke, and Yale. She says, that with my grades I should
be able to get a scholarship. I am so excited. I know that they are far away
from home, but I really want the whole college experience.
So what do you think?
Arissa, dear I think that is great.
Your father and I both went to Yale. We think that would be great for you to
get the full college experience.
So you both are ok with me applying
to those schools?
Dad says “Yes, dear we are very
excited that you want to do that. “
Yay! I am so excited. I have to start
applying over the next few weeks. So will you help me over Christmas vacation?
Of course dear we will help you.
Once we got home I rushed upstairs to finish
up my homework. I really hate Geometry.
I just can’t seem to wrap my head around all the angles and formulas. I just
have to understand it enough that it doesn’t affect my GPA.
my phone ring. I almost forgot that Damon said that he was going to call me tonight.
Hey Babe, How was dinner?
It was good, I got to talk to my
parents about the colleges that I want to go to.
Oh really? Where are you planning to
I am going to apply to all the Ivy League
schools. My counselor said that I should be able to get in with a scholarship.
That’s great babe.
Thanks, so where do you plan on
Well my grades aren’t as good as
yours Arissa. I think I might even have trouble getting into a community
Really? Not even community college? I
can help you study if you need.
I think it’s a little late for that
babe. What’s done is done.
Ok, so how was your night?
I went down to the local pool hall
and played some pool with the guys.
That sounds like fun. I wish I would
have gone. Even, if I can’t play to save my life. I just like to hit the balls
Well if u figured out geometry then it
would help you be a better pool player.
Ha! You are so funny. I am trying,
but it is not easy for me. I swear my brain just doesn’t comprehend it.
Well it’s late and I need to get some
sleep. I have a test in History in first period.
Alright, Love. Sweet dreams.
As I lie there in bed thinking to
myself. His grades are so bad that he isn’t
going to college. Do I really want to date someone who doesn’t have a college
future? Is this really going to work between us? I am going away to college and he is not even
sure if he can get into community college. I really like him and he is so nice
to me, but do I have a future with him? I don’t know I guess all I can do is
just sleep on it.
