    CHAPTER ONE

    feeling like there's nothing to figure out
    count to ten
    take it in
    this is life before you know who you're gonna be
    at fifteen


    The air smells like pineapple. My mom chats with some uptight-looking
    women in hats and pearls, glancing every so often at my slumped body
    in the rocking chair. We moved to this quaint old town to get rid of
    the 'evils of the city' and I feel like Kevin Bacon in Footloose. A
    female version, of course.

    I catch a few snippets of conversation; 'Ally', 'dance', and 'school'.
    These words don't surprise me; it's my name, after all, and she's
    probably asking these strangers about the dance schools in the area. A
    part of me really wishes I had never quit dance, and it lightens up at
    the prospect of taking it again, as far behind as I may have gotten. At least dancing isn't banned in this little town.

    The taller one of the two ladies turns around and stares at me with a
    beady eye.
    "Oh Maureen, your daughter must get acquainted with my son, Columbus!
    He would be a very good influence on her."
    I smile politely, but inside, I'm screaming. We HAD to move to the
    strange little town where ladies gossip in pearls and name their kids
    things like Columbus. Seriously?

    I stare at my chewed nails and inhale the pineapple scent until these
    ladies bid their goodbyes and walk down the steps of our crumbling
    porch.

    "Well, they seem nice," my mother sighs.

    I humph and walk inside, slamming the screen door behind me.




    The analog clock reads 7:32. As I sit out on the rickety porch
    watching the sunset, I discover a small slip of paper tucked into a
    bush.

    Hello Ally, the note reads. Welcome to Veldale. You have potential.
    Come to the Lanstrom's barn tonight at 9. If you want to enjoy
    yourself here, you will come. Sincerely, the V.

    After reading the note a few times, I crumple it in my pale fist. The
    V? This sounded like some gang. But still, curiosity licks at my
    mind. Just go, it tells me, go and bail if things are bad.

    chapter two.

    and I don't want the world to see me
    cause I don't think that they'd understand
    when everything's made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am




    At 9:00, I slip through the creaking door and tiptoe down the porch.
    My mom is lying in bed with a headache, and I doubt she'll hear.

    I reach the barn in the Lanstrom's back yard in about five minutes.
    The Lanstroms are the most well-known family. Mayor Lanstrom lives
    there with his daughter, who's a year older than me, and his mother.

    My foot, outfitted in black Converse, steps on a twig. It makes a huge
    CRACK noise, and the barn door creaks open.

    "Ally Rochester?" a hushed voice asks.
    "Yes?" I answer cautiously.
    "What is your full name?" the voice inquires.
    "Alexandra Jane Rochester. Why?" I inquire.
    "Come in," the voice orders.

    Three people are in the barn, but the flickering lanterns only give
    their shadows.

    A figure steps forward into full light, showing his face. He's really
    cute, with blond hair and deep green eyes.

    "Hey Ally, I'm Cole," he offers his hand and smiles crookedly. I
    hesitantly shake it.

    "This is Kirsten and Kayla," he points to the other figures.

    "What's going on?" I ask.

    "As you can see, our little town is a bit boring," a tall girl with
    dirty blonde hair steps forward. "A bunch of us got tired with it and
    created a secret society called the V. We hold get-togethers here in
    my barn." I guess that she's Kayla Lanstrom.
    "What kind of get-togethers?" I ask.
    "Not crazy ones. There's no alcohol or anything. It's just us, having
    fun, doing things we wouldn't normally do in front of our uptight
    parents." The other girl, who's freckle-faced and cheerful, explains.
    "I'm Kirsten Leary," she smiles.
    "So how many of you are there?" I question.
    "Uh, about 10?" Kayla looks at Cole for approval, and he nods. "Not
    everyone comes all the time, though."
    "So basically, you want me to join you?" I ask my last question.
    "Yes." Kirsten grins and pushes back her long dark hair.
    I pause for a second and respond, "I'm in. I need some fun."
    Cole flashes that crooked smile and Kayla looks pleased. Kirsten hugs
    me.
    "Meet back here tomorrow night at 9. We'll introduce you to everyone
    else." Kayla prompts.
    "I'll be here," I answer.
    "Can you find your way back home?" Kirsten asks.
    "Uh..." I hesitate. "I think so."
    "I'll walk you." Cole volunteers.
    "Um, okay." It would be nice to have a guide. I don't want to get lost.
    I say goodbye to Kirsten and Kayla and set out with Cole.
    "Here, there's a shortcut through this field, we won't have to take
    the main road."
    It seems as if the moon has disappeared from the sky. "I can't see a
    thing!" I whisper.
    "Here, take my hand." Cole says.
    I reach out into the empty darkness and find his hand. It's warm and
    feels safe.
    "Thank you."
    We trek through the field for about two minutes, until Cole leads me
    to a path that leads directly to the side door of my house.
    "How do you know this path?" I ask. My eyes have adjusted to the dark
    and I can see his face.
    Cole looks a bit uncomfortable.
    "I used to know the people that lived here before. I would come over a
    lot."
    "Oh. Well thank you for leading me home."
    "No problem." He smiles crookedly again.
    "Good night!" I say.
    "Good night. Sleep well," he disappears into the night.

    AN: Cole is mine. Contenders need not apply.
