It was my first day for 5th grade. Yep, 5th. I was getting older by the day. The only thing I hated about oving up to 5th grade is that everyone knows me. Due to my dad, they think I'm completely retarded. They always say it's the terror or the offspring of Satan's son or something completely stupid, making me feel like I'm nothing.
"Jr. ready?" Mom called to me. Dad, or I call him Bart most of the time, was waiting with her. He's always glued to her side, unlike Grandma and Grandpa.
"Yeah, I'm coming. Sophie! Come on, we gotta go." I called to my sister. She was as smart as my aunt Lisa. She was a gifted child in a good way, mostly in smarts. She trusted me more than anyone yet I don't hang out with her. I love her but she is just annoying at times.
Sophie came down about a minute after I was waiting in the hall with mom and dad.
"Okay, I'll be back." Mom kissed Dad and we were headed out the door. "Jr, since you're bigger, you can ride in the front." She smiled at me as I jumped with joy.
"Really?? YAY!" I jumped face first into the car.
"What?? That's not fair mom!! I'm old enough to sit up there!" Sophie grunted. She crossed her arms.
Mom recited as she started the car, "Hun, You're only in third grade. In two years, you'll be able to ride in the front." She buckled up and started to drive to the school.
Sophie was still being a grumpy troll but relaxed herself as we got out of the car.
"Have a great day guys. Jr, no trouble this year! I don't want any more phone calls like last year. Ugh." She drove off and Sophie and I just stood there.
The first person I noticed was Sapphire, Auntie Jess' daughter. She was one of my great friends but I couldn't help but notice that she has a crush on me. I don't know why.
I walk over to them and look back, seeing Sophie talking to her couple of friends. "Hey Sapphire!" I greeted.
"Jr! I missed you!" She smiled brightly and she gave me a hug.
"I just saw you yesterday." I wheezed. I looked up and saw another girl whom I'd never seen before. She was pretty. I couldn't help but daze at her.
Sapphire let go and placed me back in my position. I stared at the girl again. She had bangs kind of like my mom's. She had a little bow on the left side. "Hello."
"Hi." She made a faint smile.
"My name's Bart Jr. What's yours?"
"Lilly. Wait, Bart Jr? Weren't you the one who spread the chocolate pudding from the cafeteria on the teacher's chair and making look like she crapped herself?" She raised an eyebrow.
"Yeah. That was great." I laughed to myself. I could tell this girl wasn't that into me in friendwise. She seems nice but what do I know.
