Is this any good so far?
I took a deep breath before entering my first block, English. There was a month until school ended but I still needed to be here my past behind me…hopefully.”I can survive this. No problem, how hard can it be?” I asked myself. I opened the door stopping the teacher’s lecture.
“Who might you be?”His voice was gruff as he spoke.
“Starr Tyler sir.”I replied using my real name instead of the one I had originally planned on using.
“Yes, well, take a seat in the back next to Reese. I’m Mr. Rice.” I nodded and followed his instructions. Reese had black hair, and wicked grin, pale skin, blue eyes, snake bites, and muscles.
I silently set my binder in the desk and stared at it. I jumped slightly as a folded piece of paper landed in my range of vision. I unfolded it slowly not really wanting to see what it said. I elegant hand writing I read: What’s your name again?
Quickly I wrote: Starr Tyler I looked to my left where the note had come from after refolding it. Reese gave me a small smile and I gave the note back and waited for my reply.
Reese Holcomb where’d you move from?
Out of town…
Okay… What are you doing this afternoon?
Homework if I get any but other than that nothing, why?
“You wanna come to the skate park with me and some friends?
Sure… I never got a reply. I watched as Mr. Rice explained in depth the structure of a novel. Class passed easily and before I knew it the bell had rung. “So you wanna come?” A seductive voice asked. I looked up from gathering my papers and binder to see Reese leaning against my desk.
“I said I did didn’t I?” I moved a strand of black hair out of my face.
“Yeah but I wanted to be sure.” He gave a stupid grin. “What’s you next class?”
“Uh, gym.” I glanced at my schedule.
“Sweet so do I. Mid if I walk you there?”
“Give it up.”I started down the rows of desks to get to gym on time.
“What?” He followed me.
“I’m not into the whole mushy relationship thing and that’s exactly what you’re trying to do and we don’t even go out.”
“Wow never thought of it that way, but you’re wrong, we don’t go out but we may.”
I chuckled and stopped turning towards him. “Look, your hot I’ll admit that, but I’m new here and I feel like exploring for a little bit, cool?”
“Totally, so you think I’m hot?” I rolled my eyes and continued for gym with Reese by my side.
“Alright Miss Tyler, you can sit out for the day to observe how the daily exercises are completed but I expect you to join in tomorrow. Are we clear?” Coach Young asked.
“Yes sir.” I sat on the bleachers and drew absently on my note book glancing up periodically so see how things were done. The main things they did were basic and then they ran twenty laps around the gym. When the bell rand I left to wait outside the gym doors for Reese being the last class of the day.
“Waiting on me?”Reese asked coming to stand beside me dressed in red skinny jeans, a black t-shirt and converse.
“No, I’m waiting in front of the gym for my ride when I’m supposed to go to the skate park with you.” I said sarcastically.
“So who’s your ride?”We started walking in the direction of the parking lot.
“Most of the time it’s Mason. If you wanna give me a ride I can tell him to go home.”
“I’ll give you a ride.”
“Okay hold on, I need to call Mason.” I pulled out my Droid and dialed Mason’s number. “Hello? Mason, hey listen you don’t have to pick me up just unpack everything okay? Bye.” I looked at Reese and smiled. “Ready?”
“Totally.” He led me to a blue Nissan 370Z. Form the school to the skate park was about thirty minutes. When we pulled in we were instantly surrounded by people, mainly guys.
“Reese, dude, you made it!” A guy yelled running up to the car. He was taller than Reese but had the same eyes though his hair was blond. He was wearing black from his sock hat to the Etnies he wore on his feet. Even his spider bites were black rings.
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world Ryder.”
I got out of the car and just stood there feeling awkward and not really knowing what to do. Thankfully Ryder said something to end the awkwardness. “Who’s the hottie?” He asked Reese nodding towards me.
I walked around the car to stand beside Reese. “I’m Starr Tyler. I’m the one who bought that old mansion next to the cemetery.”
“Ryder Holcomb. I’m Reese’s older brother.” Ryder seemed to have a carefree attitude as he preformed tricks on his death print, birdhouse skateboard.
I watched as Reese, Ryder and some of their other friends I wasn’t introduced to try and top the others stunts. “Idiots aren’t they?” A black girl asked me coming to sit next to me where I was perched on top of one of the bowl pits. She was unlike any other black girl I’d seen. Her hair was short choppy and black streaked with different shades of blue, green, red, pink, and purple. Her eyes were a turquoise so she had to be wearing contacts but other than that she was just another skater. She spoke English correctly though and she was diffide
Personally, I don’t like it
I’m sorry. But it doesn’t really appeal to me. I think it’s kind of boring.
Keep writing though
Who could help me with this exercise of English grammar, please?
1) Make questions for the following answers using LIKE or AS.

Could anyone tell me what’s wrong?
I’ve been constantly tired for a long period of time, I haven’t had a good rest in forever and I get the recommended hours of sleep for a 16 year old. Now, I admit I don’t exercise…. And I’m at 124 lbs.
Also, I’m dehydrated most of the day, despite drinking fluids all the time (not soda or alcohol, mind you), I feel a pressure behind, above, and below my eyes (I do wear glasses, but my eyes have different visions). I wake up with horrid headaches all the time, too.
I’m not pregnant, by the way. ^^ I’ve been like this for over 9 months, I still menstruate, and I LOST weight, not gained since I last had sex…
Get a blood test. It could be diabetes…if you are getting up in the night for water, and with all your other symptoms its very likely. It’s not because of your weight either 124 lbs is not that much, it’s healthy and normal. But I definitely recommend a doctor visit.
