I watched as Austen looked at me... What he looked at me? I ignored the stupid little crush I had on him and then he winked at another girl. Oh. So much for that. I sighed and walked across the cafeteria as someone whistled, I didn't even give them a backwards glance. Oh so the other guys can find me attractive but not him? Ugh! I tossed my apple in the trash no longer hungry. Maybe I could just get rid of that Lexi girl... Not that I would do that. I really am a nice person, I just don't show it.
I smile slightly puzzled by this remark.
"My name is Samantha. Does the chili not taste good?"
"Oh, no. It tastes fine, it's just not chili. Not really." I reply to Samantha.
"So where doyou come from?Why areyou here?Whatdid youdo?" I ask all in one breath. I am really curious about her, and sadly I have not developed my skill of observation enough to know all that about someone just at a glance.
I watch as Kit leaves, she really is pretty dam.n hot. Suddenly I become aware that someone is yelling at me, "Are you even listening to me, Austin?"
"W-what?" I say blinking and turning to the voice, "Oh, yeah! Of course I'm listening, Lexi!" I say smiling at her and slightly flinching, hoping she doesn't hit me again. "I love ya, babe!" I say leaning in to kiss her; a mistake. I flinch again as her hand colides with my jaw again before she pulls me into a kiss. I hear a hoot of laughter from the guys at the table and the sickly giggle of the girls. God, I hate this life! They are all so stupid. I pull back from Lexi and look again at the door, but Kit is long gone.
The questions all through me off.
"Um...well, I come from the other side of the Giant bedroom. I'm here because my mom sent me aand that's probably because I have a tendency to-"
I'm interupted by a woman on the PA system:
"Hello students. I trust you all enjoyed your meal. May I remind you all the tables are for eating NOT for pretending you're in a wilderness expedition."
"CRIKEY!" Exclaimed the strange kid who seems to think he's Austrailian.
The bell then rang for next period. I look down at my newly printed scheduel. "Civics" in room L101. I turn back to Piper.
"Hey do you know where room L101 is? I have civics next."
I enter my first class of the day, civics. Yay. Can't you see the excitement on me? It's practically glowing. I drop my stuff into one of the only desk without gum stuck in it or without a single mark. I kept all my desks spotless, and no one dared to mess up my desk. I thumped my fingers on the table, was Austen in this class? I hoped not, at the same time I really wished he was.
"Uh. Yeah." I say, processing all that Samantha had said, what had she been about to say that she had a tendency to do? I'll ask her later.
"Follow me." I added, getting up and chucking my empty chocolate milk and fruit containers in the trash, grabbing my book bag.
"L 101, are you really smart or somthing? Or wait, how old are you? The 100s floor is for big kids or smart people." I look over at Samantha with a new respect. I have only had classes in the 3 and 400 rooms.
"Um, I don't really know. I always had a hard time at my old school staying focussed...but I do read a lot." I add with a shy smile.
After going through many halls and stairwells, we had arrived at L101. I peaked in before enterring and realized I am slightly early. I see there's only one student sitting in the classroom right now. It's the same scary red haired girl from the cafeteria.
"Who's she?" I ask Piper quietly.
"Oh her," I say, biting me lip and lowering my voice even more, "That is Kit." I look around Samantha trying to catch the glance of the Queen of the School again. I try to smile at Kit but, I probably look really stop so I quickly look down at my sneakers.
"Well, I have to go. Have a good class." I say to Samantha, using my normal voice again as I run off to my next class.
I get up from my table, trying to worm my way out of Lexi's grasp.
"I have to go." I say, "I forgot my books and I have to go back to my locker and I don't want to be late ''cause I have 'too many detentions to allow for another mistake'." miniking the Principle's voice. I smile at Lexi and give her a kiss on the forehead. I actually have my books, right in my book bag, but the really problem is that I have to walk all the way to L101. It's too far away to leave just before the bell rings and I don't want to be late. I will never tell anyone of the guys that I have a single class in the 100 rooms, but hey, it's only Civics so it dosn't really matter.
I really wasn't paying attention to the girls at the door. I really didn't care, though I knew they were talking about me. "If you want to talk about me so bad you could always say it louder. I find out new things about myself through gossip everyday." I say not even looking up. It was fun just messing with people. They were always so... Jumpy. Meanwhile I really didn't care. All I cared about way imaging every horrid thing I would to to Lexi if I was really the person I acted like I was. But then again... She is really mean to him. Maybe I could.... No.
Judging by the tone of Piper's voice..it's possible Kit may not be too friendly.
But whatever, I'll do my best to be nice and make a good impression. Who knows, she could be a great person!
I plop my books two desks away from her. And smile at her.
"Hi." I say quietly as I unpack my things.
The bell rang. No, no, no! I thougt, sprinting into the room. I drop into a desk at the back. Well, at least I was sort of on time, I think as I carefully sculpt my face into a chill, relaxed, indifferent look. I lounge back in my chair, pretending I didn't just come running in like a mad man. But hey, if anyone asks, I can just say that they will kick me out of here if I'm late again and I can't dream of a place I would rather be than here. I snicker at my own untold sarcasim. I look around the room, sh.it, both Kit and the random new girl are in this class. This could get dangerous. Why do girls have to be so hot? I stare blankly at the teacher, ready for a class of boredom, Civics suck. Why can't they teach something good here? Like science? That would be interesting. Ah well, the life of a Latent.
"Thanks for finally joining us, Austin" the stern looking teacher says as he writes the date on the blackboard.
"Students as you may or may not know we have a new student here. Samantha. Samantha, why don't you stand up and tell us about yourself."
Oh gosh. I hate attention like that. I stand up by my desk and turn around to face everyone.
The teacher gives me a look that says that's not enough information for me to sit down again.
"Hello, Samantha. Why don't you tell us where you are from?"
"Oh um..I'm from a small cottage on the other side of the Giant room...Just past the bed."
"Oh how lovely Samantha. What do you like to do in your spare time?"
I hesitate in answering this one. I almost chuckle look down to the ground and very quietly answer.
"Sneak out to see stars..." I say with a smile.
The teacher's face turns from curious to unimpressed.
"That'll be all Samantha."
I take my seat again as he begins the class.
The class was a drag. I hated every second of it. On the plus side Austen was in this class, on the down side Austen was in this class. I smiled at my own thoughts then looked over catching myself starring at him. I couldn't have been more thrilled when the next bell would finally ring. I have the next class as a study block so gladly I won't have to do anything. Heck I don't even bother to go to that class half the time, the teacher always counts me as being there. Life of a Queen. I say to myself jokingly. Though its kind of lonely being alone. "Nice to meet you, newbie. I'm Kit." I say quietly to the new girl, maybe it wouldn't hurt to be nice to her. I thought about saying something to Austen but didn't. If he wanted to talk to me he would.
I raise my eyebrows as this Samantha say she likes sneaking out to look at stars. Thats gusty, heck whats even more gusty is admitting it to a teacher at Parva. Well, rebel or not, she's hot. I look out the small window, wishing it opened up to a view of the Giant's room, but no windows here ever do. As I turn back to the board, my eyes fall on Kit. I feel redness creeping into my cheeks and quickly look away. Carefully I adjust how I am sitting so that I face the door instead of Kit or Samantha. Also, I look extreamly relaxed and like I'm not paying any attention to the teacher.
((Oops. Sorry I guess my responce was a bit delayed... sorry. ))
The bell rings. Thank god! Manners and Behavior or whatever I just sat through was pretty stupid. I wonder if I should go try and find Samantha, and decide I might as well. My next class is also goning to be boring, all the classes here are! I walk down the hall, thoughts of another investigation to do after classes end. Should I continue with the food search? Or do I really not want to know the answers to those question? Suddenly, I run straight into someone and fall over backwards, hitting the ground hard, my bag splits and everything spills all over the floor. Without looking up to see who I hit, I hurry to try and push everything into the ripped bag before people, specifically teachers, notice the magnifying glass I have in there along with a few other things I use when investigating things.
I really hate this class. Do you know what's wore than watching the guy you like drool over another girl? Nothing. That's what. Nothing. He was even blushing after being caught looking at her! Why couldn't he look at me? I had a momentary pout then convinced myself I don't care. That I'm all a lie anyway. But it was short lived. I do care. I care a lot. Oh look, now he is facing away from her. Cute. Ha!
Well that class could not have gone worse. I just hope my future classes aren't like that. I see Piper in the halls and as I am about to say "Hi" she falls on the floor and the contents of her backpack sprawl everywhere.
I rush in to help her put everything back into her bag. I feel like detective equipment is not something that is very permitted to have within the halls of Parva Boarding School.
((I fixed it and reposted. Lol))
Thank you bell! Escape! I grab my bag and rush out of the room and nearly run head long into the last person I want to see when I have two separate girls on my mind, my girlfriend...
"Uh. Hey Lexi." I say, trying to smile at her.
"Oh, does bigshot have a class in the 100 rooms? I didn't know!" She says looking at me with a venomous look, "Since when are you smart enough to be down here?" She scoffs. I look down, scuffing my feet awkwardly, feeling my face turn bright red.
"Thanks!" I murmur to Samantha, still trying to shove everything into the bag, who ever I ran into, is long gone. I look up the hall and realize that it was probably the popular girl Lexi. I shudder at the thought of her and notice she is yelling at someone. I look back at Samantha and decide we should get out of there quick.
"Come on." I say walking the other direction down the hall, "where is your next class?"
"Algebra. What a perfect way to end the day isn't it?" I say jokingly.
"Samantha? Samantha!" An old woman calls out after me down the hallways. I think she was the secretary.
"Hi that's me." I respond.
"Ah Samantha," she hands me an envelope. "This is your boarding information, sorry it was late to get to you. In there is your room key, a list of rules and the name of your roommate. She doesn't know yet that you'll be sharing a room with her but I'm on my way to let her know soon."
"Oh." I say. "Well thank you, I mean..that would be extremely awkward if I did walk in unannounced wouldn't it?" I joke.
"Hm. Yes it would." The secretary said with a stern face. "Anyways I'll go find her now. Carry on."
She scurries away and I turn to Piper
"I've learned two things about teachers here today. One: they don't really like stars. Two: they don't really like jokes." I say with a laugh.
