Being alone never seemed to faze me much; not until he barged into my life in a whirl wind of bright colors and pep. My mother, bless her, was never really home. She worked all sorts of crazy hours at the hospital and my father was really just a picture on our walls. Dont misunderstand me, he loves us and we him, but his job as a pilot kept him away from home most of my childhood. Hed come home for all of 7 hours and be off in a flurry of rushed goodbyes and I love yous. So obviously when my lonely seven year old self was ambushed in the community swimming pool, I found myself clinging to the small bit of normalcy he offered with his half of a soggy Twinkie. Of course Im talking about my best friend Rhyz. Rhyz was and probably will always be an eccentric bundle of eclectic fun. He has always known who he is and what he wanted in life, while I just ambled along. In my worst of times he has always been there with his silly smile cheering me up, and literally shoving me out of my comfortable bubble of normalcy, normalcy that he unknowingly gave me.

Id always been what most called a realistic dreamer, a walking contradiction. I could spend hours creating a perfect fantasy world and then minutes tearing apart all the inconsistencies. I was youre Atypical high school student. Id been trying to find myself and well my purpose in life. Currently, Id chosen tutoring in order to have a nice little activity other than track to add to my transcripts for college. But really, isnt that always the way these stories start? I had good grades, amazing friends and a loving family but sometimes I just wanted to escape. I couldnt help but feel that maybe I was missing out on something. Something great. Something magical. Something I often liked fantasizing about. But reality always found a way to settle in and ruin the magic my dreaming had weaved. Stupidly, I decided to tell Rhyz about this and my fears. And my dear sweet best friend, being the crazy that he was, always loved to shove me face first into what I deemed a scary situation. He has this annoying little motto about how to live life, something about enjoying all of lifes obstacles. Funny enough, I think the last shove is what probably got me in this mess to begin with.

CHAPTER ONE:
T HE AMBIGUOUS T ALE OF A PIZZA D ELIVERY G IRL

Staring at the once pristine sheet of paper, Holly groaned and placed yet another blinding red X. This was the third test that Regan had failed. Regan James was a smart girl, too smart to be failing English and Holly couldnt understand why she was. Holly your breaks over in 20 minutes and Regan is here. Rhyz said plopping down into the seat across from her affectively distracting her and motioning said girl over. Glancing up warily Holly shuffled papers around and grumbled incoherently at Regan who had just taken a seat next to Rhyz. Whats up pretty Lady? Regan purred smacking her hand on the table You ready to get your tutor on? Her response was another groan and a stack of papers shoved in her direction. These are you graded practice sheets and a new round of drills. Why dont you work on them while I go slave away and when its slow Ill take a look? Holly sighed dragging her tired body out of the chair turning towards Regan as she did And dont think I didnt notice you were late. Looking at Rhyz she pleaded to her eccentric best friend

Please dont distract her. When her only response was an eye roll from said best friend and a snicker from the blonde girl she scampered off into the back room. With another sigh, she trudged her way towards the time clock. Holly, your friends are scaring the customers again! she heard Giana yell from the register followed by an indignant Never from Regan and a chorus of laughter. It was moments like this that she wished she could just disappear. Quickly stamping her time sheet she rushed out of the backroom towards Giana, she brought her hands up to her face in exasperation Regan, get your ass down and finish your practice drills before Mr. Greco kicks us all out and Im out of a job! Oh lighten up pretty lady. Its not like they havent seen me actin crazy before Regan replied smacking her lips. Dropping her slim body back into the seat she was standing on seconds prior, Youre such a party pooper. With a groan, she reached for her graded sheets only to wince at all the red marks Jeesshh, I did that bad? After a few minutes of watching the red head who was effectively ignoring her and rushing through the pizza parlor she grabbed her arm as she passed Holly! she screeched What do I do? My dad is so gonna kill me! her eyes frantically moving from Holly to Rhyz.

Study harder? Rhyz responded with a shrug pushing a textbook towards the now glaring blonde. What? You act like studying is some sort of poison. The party will still be there when youre done he trailed off prompting Regan to release Holly.
