Mystery 4

February 23, 2010
We all shaked and shivered.
The girl next to me with red hair,
green eyes and little freckles all over her face, poppped her gum.
"Sure you are. Where's our teacher? I just saw him earlier."
Cecil White laughed.
It was a laugh that was dark and something you've never heard a dark chuckle in the darkness curling up your spine.
"He was fired right after lunch."
She smiled, flashing her perfectly white teeth.
The girl next to me popped her gum loudly. "Why was he fired?"
Her eyes sparkled.
"Thats a secret." She whispered lightly.
Her smile reached ear to ear again.
That smile was so creepy.

Ms. White held the clipboard with our names on it lightly.
Her nails were painted a dark red that was bright on her hands.
She kept that creepy smile on her face,
always reaching her eyes of blue and gold striking through them,
but then I don't think it was meant to.

She tapped each of our desks as she walked by,
attempting our names.
Usual substitute teachers got it least three names wrong in our class,
and always the same three people too,
but this woman...
she got every name.
More of a mystery as to how she tolerated
everyone's attitude towards her.
It was obvious that none of us wanted her there.
It came off in waves!
