Angela discovers a whole new circle of friends within the alternative music scene but she finds herself having to grow up fast to deal with trials and tragedies that fate brings her.
Simon sat back down in the chair and gave me back my mp3. I dropped my head, too shy to look at him. I quickly put my mp3 player back in my bag but Simon grabbed my wrist. Surprised I turned to face him, he swept my long mousey brown hair off my face and studied me intently for a moment. He had the palest blue eyes I had ever seen and I couldn't take my eyes off him. I could feel my heart beating hard in my chest as I held his stare then he kissed me! He kissed me on the lips right there in the corridor outside the headmaster's door! He kissed me! My face must have been a picture because when he let me go he laughed at me. I was in shock, I'd never had a boyfriend before never mind have someone just snog me out of the blue like that. Simon stood up and turned his back on me as if to walk away but then he stopped. He turned back to face me and with a serious expression on his face he quietly said, "I think I love you. Come on let's go!"
Before I knew what was happening Simon had grabbed my hand and we were running down the corridor. We burst through the double doors, he dragged me down the stairs and we didn't stop running until we were outside the school gates. We crouched down with our backs to the wall breathing so hard we could barely speak. I'd never felt such a rush of adrenaline, it was exhilarating beyond belief. I knew this was a bad idea, what was I thinking? I was supposed to be seeing the headmaster not playing truant with a 6th form boy that I had only just met, but I had to admit it was the most exciting thing that had ever happened to me in my entire life.
