I am walking into school, when I pass this boy in a purple hoodie that I have never seen before.
"I wonder who that is ?" Lingers in my mind until a familiar voice makes me lose my flaky train of thought.
"Yo Kip! What's up?" The voice.
"You seem tired. Were you up all night talking to someone?" Danny asks.
"Maybe a boy? Perhaps? She continues while poking me with her elbow.
"No.. I have just been really restless at night for some unknown reason..." I reply.
"What's new with you?" I say sensing that Danny wants to change the subject.
"Nothing at the moment BUT did you hear about the Halloween party tomorrow night?"
"I guess.. Who is hosting it this year?"
"Just some seniors but by now everyone knows about--"
I see a flash of purple before Danny turns around. I notice it was the boy I saw when I got to school.
"Excuse me. Can one of you point me in the direction of the principal's office?" He asks, staring at us with his bright brown eyes.
"Surre. She will do you one better, she will escort you you there." Danny says pointing to me.
It takes me a few minutes to realize what she had just said. When I realized it I was shocked awake.
At this point it was too late to refuse because Danny was halfway towards our homeroom leaving me alone with the new kid.
"Okay, the principal's office is just down this hallway."
"Just lead the way." He replies.
After some stiff minutes pass by I blurt out "Do you smell something?"
"It must be my new shampoo, its a little on the strong side." He replies.
"Way to go make the mood more awkward."
"Can I ask you something since we are alone --?"
"Its Kip." I reply.
"Where are my manners, my name is Ren."
"Anyway how much do you believe in the supernatural?" He asks stopping right near the principal's office door.
The shadows make his eyes turn dark brown.
"The only supernatural things I believe in are witches/wizards or whatever use call them these days." I reply trying to laugh it off.
"Okay..." He answers indifferently.
"What did he expect me to say?"
"Thank you for escorting me here, see you later." He says as he closes the door.
"Most awkward first impression ever."
The day continues it finally turns to lunch time.
Danny continues talking about the Halloween party.
"Now half of the school is going to this party." Danny says.
"I just guessing but you sound like you want to go." I reply.
"Heck yeah! I want to go! Can we brainstorm costume ideas at your house after school?"
"Yeah can't see why not." I reply.
"Alright see you after school."
At my house up in my room, we spent twenty minutes talking about our costumes.
"Should we go as a pair?" Danny asks.
"Just friends in different costumes." I reply.
"Do you want store bought or do we want to make half make half bought?"
"Its tomorrow so I guessing store bought." I reply.
"What are you thinking of--" Danny's starts to say as her phone rings.
She pulls out her phone "I have to take this." she says walking away.
She comes back after a few minutes saying "I need to go home."
"Okay, see ya." I say opening the door.
"See you tomorrow." She replies.
"I guess it was her father being his over protective self." I thought as I closed the door behind Danny.
