    “What nail polish should I use?” 17 year old Camille Belcourt asked her best friend Magnus Bane. “Magnus, did you hear me?” She waved a carrot stick in front of his face. “Hellooo??” “Um, use the dark grey with the purple sparkles over it. Who's that kid over there? Is he new?" “Please don’t tell me you have a new crush.” She put her head in her hand, which was actually very hard considering she was painting her nails. “Which one?” She followed his gaze. “The one with the black hair.” “Uh oh, no, Magnus don’t even think about it. That’s Alec Lightwood. He’s one of the most popular kids in our school, right after his adopted brother Jace Herondale. He’s straight.” Camille warned him. “No he’s not. Look at how he stares at Jace. Now compare that to how I’m staring at him.” Camille looked back and forth between them. “Ok, maybe he’s not straight but he has a crush on Jace.” “Jace’s dating Clary.” He reminded her. “Isn’t there a football game this Friday?” He asked. “Yeah, everybody is going to the carnival afterwards.” “I bet you that I will be dating him by Friday.” “Bet.” “Bet.” The bell rang, ending lunch. When Magnus got to French Ms. Bellefleur, came up to him with a clipboard. “Magnus, I’ve partnered everybody up for a project. Your partner is,” She consulted the clipboard, “Alec Lightwood, he has the information sheet.” “Alec is in this class?” He asked. “Yeah, he’s been in this class for the whole year.” She responded, and then walked away to another student.

Ok I just needed to find the perfect shoes to go with my dress... I went to my room and looked under my bed for my plain black flats. Since I was going to a party, I was trying to avoid my feet hurting from heels. "Got it!" I yelled from my room and walked to the living room where Regina was now standing.…

    I reach my hand out, groaning into my pillow as I press the snooze on my alarm clock for what must be the hundredth time this morning. “Honey, you need to walk up or you may be late now do we?” She says in this cheery voice that always makes me happier. “Okay mom. I’m getting up.” I say, and finally roll out of bed. While getting ready, I can’t but feel a little excited to see my best friend, Krystal, for no reason. Krystal should have been named Sunny because She was always cheerful and…

I was really devastated that all my friends were going and I had missed it by only a couple points. All I could think about was what could have I done differently, what could I do to better my runs. The rest of the summer I kept practicing and going to some other rodeos until school started. That winter I practiced a lot, I worked hard at goat tying, barrel racing, and break- away roping. When the…
