When we Love: Chapter Two

START AT THE BEGINNING

CHAPTER TWO

I sit in the great assembly hall, a sea of navy surrounding me, and I smile politely at the girl sitting next to me. She smiles back, but it seems obligatory. She looks down at me pretentiously, and I sink back into my chair, thinking how tough all of this is going to be.
Today is my first day at The Christian Academy, and it is daunting. My nerves are nibbling away at my insides and I can feel their little nudges and pinches in the pit of my stomach. I was, eventually, after a lot of interviews, red tape and paperwork, accepted on a full scholarship here after my dad decided to come to The Christian Academy and inquire about their scholarship program. Despite sounding conceited, I am academically gifted, so without studying hard I have the ability to do exceptionally well by only paying attention in class.

i really did like writting and i so want to read IN THE END!!! cas i would really love to read that VINCENT and CHRISSE have a happy ending.... Alaknanda k rated it at Goodreads


I found the voice compelling. It felt as though Chrissie was talking to me personally. The compelling voice was a double-edged sword for me, though.

I loved the whole thing. The characterization drew me right in. I feel like I know this girl and I am rooting for her... even though I know she is going to have some problems when she falls in love with the black boy.
This has been, by far, my favourite YOUNG ADULT excerpt I have read. I liked the characters, the setting and the pace of the book. It was interesting and it leaves me wanting more.

Should I be watching Anime?

I probably shouldn't.

However, I do enjoy the stories and often I bawl my eyeballs out like I did when I watched Orange.




What the story is about:

Naho Takamiya's first day of her sophomore year of high school is off to an uneasy start. After waking up late, she receives a strange letter addressed to her. However, the letter is from herself—10 years in the future! At first, Naho is skeptical of the note; yet, after witnessing several events described to take place, she realizes the letter really is from her 26-year-old self.



The note details that Naho's future life is filled with regrets, and she hopes that her younger self can correct the mistakes that were made in the past. The letter also warns her to keep a close eye on the new transfer student, Kakeru Naruse. Naho must be especially careful in making decisions involving him, as Kakeru is not around in the future. With the letter as her guide, Naho now has the power to protect Kakeru before she comes to regret it once more.

CHAPTER ONE

The first moment I saw her standing in front of the class waiting for Mr. Johnson, I did not pay any attention. Just another white girl I thought to myself, but as the minutes ticked by and I continued looking at her because she made the time pass, I suddenly realized I am uncontrollably interested in her.
The way she stared out of the window nervously, the way she seemed to be swinging from one leg to the other, her sun-kissed hair, neatly pin…
