I wasn't late, although a strange feeling in the pit of my stomach told me Xander was. I smiled to myself before pulling out my paintbrush set. Today was the day to paint. I walked over the window and opened the shade. The sun coming up over the mountains was beautiful, and I intended to recreate it to last forever. Or at least for a few more hours.
My paintbrush began to do gently strokes and the instructions on how to create a masterpiece instinctively filled my mind. This was part of my own little world. I stopped for a moment to open the window itself and then turn on my favorite song. Xander had written it for my 14th birthday. I'll treasure it forever.
Before I knew it, class was over. But the painting was finished. It looked exactly like the beauty I had seen. I grabbed my stuff and went to math. Inwardly, I groaned.
