His name was Oliver Sykes he was one year older than me and had the prettiest girl in the school as his girlfriend. She was Sj Whitely. “Chelsea stop it you know he wouldn’t look twice at us.” My best friend Annie said while running her fingers through her long brown hair. I almost felt like crying when I thought up a song for out band to perform tonight at the Saturday coffee shop.

(At Saturday’s)

We set up our instruments and started to play just as Oliver and Sj walked in.

“Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
