I walked into the school that I would be attending for the next two years of my life. I was already dreading it and I hadn't even gotten my schedule yet.
Making my way to the main office, I waited for the lady behind the counter to notice me. She seemed to be too busy talking on the phone with who I'm sure wasn't a parent. She had blonde, practically white hair that was tied up in a tight pony tail on the top of her head. Her fingers were adorned with long pink claws that were longer than my life span.
She glanced over at me as if I were the cause of all of her problems before rolling her eyes and telling the person on the other end of the line that she had to go.
"What do you need?" She said rudely, scrutinizing me with her icy blue eyes.
"I n-need my schedule. And locker number, I'm new." I said timidly, cursing myself for stuttering. I suddenly felt very small beneath her gaze. She sighed and rolled her eyes again.
"Um Jayden. Jayden Roberts." She started tapping away at her computer and printing out a sheet of paper with my information on it. I was surprised that she could type so fast with those weapons she called nails.
She practically threw the paper in my face before picking up her phone, probably calling that person back.
"Thank you." I sighed. Just kill them with kindness, Jay.
Checking over my schedule, I thanked every god in the sky that my locker was near most of my classes. I went straight to my locker and dumped all of the stuff I knew I wouldn't use since my first period was English three, an easy A. I made sure I had some paper on me and that was all I needed.
I took a deep breath to calm my nerves before walking into my first period. All conversation stopped when I walked in. The teacher looked at me and was probably waiting for me to say something instead of just standing there with my mouth gaping like a fish. My ears drooped at all the attention I was receiving and I shifted my gaze down to the floor.
"Ah, you must be the new student. Jayden, right?" The older teacher asked, her eyes kind.
I nodded, not trusting my voice at the moment.
"Well, I'm Mrs. Limberg. Come on over here and I'll get you a workbook." She said with a kind smile. I nodded and followed her to her desk. I recognized the book they were using and was pleased to know that I had already done most of it at my old school so this should be a piece of cake.
She seated me in the very back of the classroom where I was surrounded by guys that all looked like they wanted nothing to do with me. I guess that wasn't such a bad thing since I wasn't here to make friends. I only needed one and he was currently god knows where.
The seats were set up in rows so I was sitting behind a pretty big guy that made it impossible to see around him. It was good that I had done most of the lessons in the workbook already or I would be screwed.
I figured since I couldn't see past this giant and I was ahead of the class, I would just go to sleep. It was too early to learn anyway.
I used my ears to pull up my hood before laying down on the desk for a little nap.
The bell finally rang signalling that first period was over. It nearly gave me a heart attack since I was sleeping. I prayed no one saw me jump out of my skin.
I stretched, feeling my body unloosen itself as I sat in an upright position.
As I was grabbing my belongings, which wasn't much more than my bag and a pencil, the door flung open to reveal my childhood friend, Sage. Sage and I had known each other since we were in elementary school and we have been inseparable ever since.
He looked around the classroom worriedly before spotting me near my seat.
"Hey Jayden! How has your day been so far? I have't seen you in forever." He whined as he gave me a bear hug. I giggled and hugged him back while patting his cat ears.
"It's only first period Sage! And I just saw you yesterday." I joked as I poked his sides to get him off of me.
"But it feels like so much longer! I'm always missing my wittle bunny." He said in a baby voice before swallowing me in another hug.
I noticed that some of the kids I was sitting next to were watching us as Sage smothered me. One of the boys who sat a couple seats ahead of me, was looking at me. We made eye contact and a sudden jolt of electricity tingled down my spine.
I was entranced by his bright green eyes. So entranced that I didn't notice that the warning bell rang. Breaking eye contact with him, I left with Sage to economics.
I wasn't really looking forward to this class. I had a feeling it was going to be very boring and pointless like the rest of my schedule. The only good thing about it was that Sage was with me so I at least had someone to talk to. He ushered me to the seat next to his.
I didn't fail to notice that the boy with a staring problem was in this class along with two of the friends he was with earlier.
At least I had something nice to look at.
