Tessa said shutting the bedroom door on them. five minutes or so passed and the sound of Tessa rushing down the stairs was soon heard. Gabriella walked out the Livingroom. 'Its alright you have like half an hour to the bell.' Gabriella said. 'Right, Wheres edward.' Tessa replied. 'Here' A voice from the livingroom spoke. Tessa looked to see Edward sitting on the sofa. 'lets go then.' Tessa said without even looking at him. She walked out the house and edward followed. 'have you done something with your hair? it looks different.' Edward asked. 'Yeh, ive made my hair look amazing in the matter of five minutes. no all ive done is tried to brush it.' Tessa said. 'It looks nice.' Edward replied. 'Er.. Thanks.' Tessa said without looking at him. They got into school and into form class. Edward was handed his own timetable and Tessa tried to avoid him most of the morning. At break Tessa and Katie sat at a bench outside on the field. They were talking about The maths homework they had been given. Edward walked over and sat down next to katie. 'Hey.' Katie smiled. Edward smiled back but did not say anything. 'Whats up?' Tessa asked. 'Oh nothing. Someone asked me out and i dont know what to say.' Edward said then looked at Tessa. 'ooh Who?' Katie asked. 'Denise?' 'No, some girl called Tracy.' Edward answered. 'Tracy Campell? Omg you should really go out with her.' Katie said. 'Yeah, Shes really pretty and she plays guitar.' Tessa said. 'Okay, i will.' Edward smiled standing up. 'Thanks, bye.' 'Bye.' Tessa and Katie choroused and watched Edward walk into the building.
