Summary: Um I can't think of what to say, so for now, just read below or you can go to page 24 where there is a longer summary there.

Hey all,

This is my very first fan fic, so i hope it's okay. I've been reading everyone's awesome stories and I thought it might be fun to do one of my own. I've never showed anyone my writing before so i hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think! I'd greatly appreciate it!

The story centres around Matilda, Rocco, and another new student, and starts off a couple of weeks after Rocco arrives in the Bay. There's also a little side story about Jack that ties in there as well. The regular H&A characters also feature in some way or another.

I'll be back later to start the first chapter, but for now I'll leave you with some teasers...

Friends become enemies as the school turns against Rocco.

Johnny and his gang cause havoc in the Bay.

Matilda befriends a new student with a secret.

All will be revealed. But i better finish my assignments first!

Here's the first chapter. Hope you enjoy!


Matilda walked slowly along the beach. She loved it at this time of the morning. There were hardly any people around and the first light of the sun glistened over the calm sea. She sat down and rummaged through her school bag. She had been doing this since she came back from the retreat. Every morning before school she would get up early and walk along the beach. It was time that she used to clear her head. Get things into perspective. She pulled a journal out of her bag and started writing. She stopped writing for a moment and looked out to the sea. In front of her she saw a young girl walking along the beach. The girl looked up at Matilda and smiled. Matilda smiled back as the girl looked down at the sand and kept walking.

“You were up early this morning” Lucas said as he approached Matilda at her locker.

“Yeah I had some things to do before school.” She said quietly

Lucas nodded. “Cool. Hey did you hear about the new student that's starting. It’s all over the school. Apparently another kid like Rocco. Can you imagine that Maddie?

“Great. That’s all we need, another criminal in the school” Cassie interrupted. “They’ll have something in common at least,’ she laughed.

“They could be really nice” said Matilda. “They might want a fresh start too. You know try and change for the better.”

“People like that never change.” Cassie argued. “When they commit crimes and stuff it follows them around for the rest of their lives. Look at Rocco, he’s been here two weeks already and all he’s done is cause trouble.”

“That’s a little harsh Cassie,” said Lucas. “He’s my partner in biology and he is a really smart guy”

“You don’t know him for sure Luke” Cassie said glaring at him.

“That’s the problem with this town,” Matilda said angrily. Nobody gives anybody a chance. Rocco really wants to make a new start and we’re judging him because of his past. Maybe you should at least try to get to know him. I think he deserves a second chance.”

“You’re such a hypocrite Maddie” Cassie exclaimed. “Here you are being all defensive of a crim like Rocco, and yet you can’t even give me a second chance as your friend!”

Matilda sighed. “Rocco has never hurt someone that I care about Cassie. What you and Macca did to Ric…”

Cassie fronted right up to Maddie and stood over her. “You know what Maddie, enough! I love Macca. And I know that I hurt Ric, but… you know what get over it. If you’re going to be childish and play stupid little games then I don’t want to be your friend.”

Lucas pulled Cassie aside and stood between the two girls. “Let’s not fight okay” he said to both of them. “We all used to be really good friends. Let’s get back to that okay?”

“You’re right Lucas,” Matilda said nodding. “We USED to be good friends. And people don’t change.” The bell rang and she stormed off leaving Cassie and Lucas a little in shock at her outburst.

“Is she off her medication or something?” Cassie said sarcastically.

“That’s not funny Cassie.” Lucas snapped. “I tried to be on your side but maybe Maddie is right not to be friends with you.” Lucas walked off to class leaving Cassie standing there stunned. She could not believe they had both gone off at her like that.

As Cassie ran after Lucas, Rocco closed the door of his locker. He was glad that they hadn’t seen him standing there the whole time. He knew that they all talked about him behind his back, but he was grateful that Matilda Hunter had stuck up for him. “If there were more people like Matilda and Sally, he might be able to get the clean slate he wanted”, he thought to himself. He looked at his watch and realised he was running late for class. As he hurried through the hallway his mind was still on the conversation that he just heard. Suddenly, his phone beeped. He pulled it out of his pocket and hastily tried to read the message.

Before he could get into the inbox he suddenly crashed into someone. As they collided, Rocco dropped his phone and his books on the floor. “Woaaah. You alright?” asked Brad.

“I’m really sorry Mr Armstrong. I didn’t see you” he apologised.

“You’re running a bit late” said Brad brushing himself off.

“Sorry Sir,’ Rocco said gathering up his text books. “I lost track of the time.”

“It’s only five minutes so I’ll let you off this time. But don’t make a habit of it okay?” Brad warned. “Get to class mate”.

Rocco nodded and quickly ran off to his class.

Before he opened the door to Sally’s class, he pulled out his phone again. The message was from his brother.

“Hope you’re at school mate. You might need the alibi”

What has Johnny done to get Rocco in trouble?

And will Jack believe his story?

Great chapter. Im glad Brad is nice to Rocco in this fic unlike the show. Loving it. Cassie is so mean. Good on Mattie for sticking up for Rocco. Brad is Rocco's alibi, and hopefully Sally and the class will see him, but Rocco being late will get him into trouble. I hope Jack's nice to him :(

Cant wait for more :D

Please update soon :D
