Gen 2 - Chapter 12: Why Me?

Authors note: This chapter will be told from Kayleigh's POV.

I could hear Mum calling up the stairs that it was time to get up and get ready for school, but I just couldn't bring myself to get out of bed. I really didn't want to go, I wasn't ill, but I knew it would mean seeing HER and have her say all those mean things to me. I really hated her, I have done nothing to her and yet she still picks on me ALL the time. I know I should tell Mum, but I don't want to give her more things to deal with, she has to work, look after the twins and clean the house, she really doesn't need my problems too.

I heard Mum call again and knew if I didn't get up that she would come up, so I climbed out of bed and got myself ready, I had a quick shower, brushed my teeth and done my hair. Uggghhhh why do I have to have ginger hair, I hate it!

Once I was ready I made my way downstairs for some cereal, I sat down and had just started eating when Mum came in from the kitchen. She asked if everything was OK at school, I mumbled "yeah, everything is fine Mum" before shoving another spoonful of cereal into my mouth in the hopes that she wouldn't ask me any more questions. She pulled out the chair next me and sat down, she said "If there is anything wrong honey you know you can always talk to me, you can tell me anything. I am always here if you need me." I just nodded and said OK.

I put my empty bowl in the dishwasher and just as I grabbed my school bag I heard the horn of the school bus. I shouted bye to Mum and ran out the door, once on the bus I spotted Kitty and sat next to her, we chatted all the way there. I always enjoyed this part, it was just me and Kitty, no-one to disturb us. As the bus pulled up outside school I looked around nervously for Catarina, I spotted her in the far corner of the playground laughing with Sophie, probably about me. I grabbed Kitty's hand and hurriedly made our way inside to our lockers. Once there I placed my bag inside and grabbed my books for Science and closed my locker.

We made our way to class and our seats, Mr Hadsworth was already at his desk. Me and Kitty were the first ones in, but everyone else soon followed, including Catarina and Sophie. They always sat on the table next to ours and laughed and snickered at me through the whole lesson. Mr Hadsworth never really noticed, if he did he never said anything. Today we were learning about the water cycle, Mr Hadsworth said that we had had 4Cm's of rain in the past month, boring!
After Science we had English with Mrs Tipp, I didn't mind English, Mrs Tipp was really nice and whenever she saw Catarina and Sophie laughing she would tell them to hush or they would be going to the principals office.

Lunch was OK, me and Kitty always sat outside at one of the picnic tables, unless it was raining. Everyday at lunch Catarina and Sophie would always come over to us and be mean to me, today was no different, Kitty always stuck up for me though, and shouted back at her. Today seemed different though I could see Kitty tensing up as Catarina got closer to us. I just knew something bad was going to happen.

Catarina stopped as she approached our table and spat " Eugh look at you today ginge, maybe we should cut all her hair off Sophie, see how she likes that." As she reached for her pocket I saw Kitty stand up and walk over to Catarina, she grabbed her hair and said "Why don't you try picking on someone else for a change, I'm not scared of you Catarina." That was when the fight started....

Both girls got a few punches in before Miss Tipp intervened and pulled them apart. She crossly said "What's going on here then? Why are you two fighting?" "She started it Miss, we were only walking past." Catarina snickered. "Both of you can go straight to the office, and expect your parents to be called too." Miss Tipp replied.

I waited until Catarina and Sophie had walked off before approaching Miss Tipp "Miss, it wasn't Kitty fault, Catarina has been picking on me, Kitty was just sticking up for me Miss." I pleaded. "Kayleigh why haven't you told anyone about this before?" She asked. "I don't know miss, I was kinda hoping she would just stop." With that I burst into tears.."I'm sorry Miss, I know I should have said something." "Oh Kayleigh...Come on lets go call your mum and get her to come and collect you." She replied and led me to the office, Mum was going to be so mad..... .

Stay tuned for chapter 13 :)

Great update! I am so glad she has Kitty there to protect her :-). I hope Catarina will learn not to mess with Kayleigh or she'll get her eye scratched out by our fierce Kitty!

Welcome To The Stone Family Blog.

I would like to introduce you to my founder, Jenna Stone and her husband Claude Stone.

Jenna's traits are:

Born Saleswoman



Family Orientated


Her favourite's include:




Jenna is an artistic person, and can always be found painting her worries away. She wants a big family, she say's a home filled with laughter is the place to be. When she isn't painting she can be found either out in the garden or at the library reading. Being Eco-friendly she likes to recycle, take quick showers and just generally take care of the planet. She still remembers the first day she met Claude like it was yesterday. He was walking past as she left the library, and her being the bookworm that she is had her head stuck in her favourite book and bumped into him. Claude caught her and as their eyes met they instantly felt the attraction towards one another, and from that day they never left each others side.

Claude's traits are:

Family Orientated





His favourites include:


Autumn Salad

Irish Green

Claude is very athletic, most days he can be found working out at the gym or with his family.He is also very charismatic and loves to make friends and meet new people. He is very career orientated and because he is a schmoozer he makes friends with colleagues very quickly. He is very family orientated and would love 4 or 5 children. He has always wanted a large family and never thought it would be possible until he met Jenna. He and Jenna were engaged within 6 months of meeting, they had a whirlwind romance and neither could imagine life without the other.

What will the future hold for the Stone's.
