BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! My alarm woke me up on a day like any other, except that it wasn’t. It was a new day, a new year at a new school. Today was my first day of highschool. I moved just a few days ago into a new town. It was a small little friendly town where everyone knew everyone, except me and my family. We just moved here so it makes sense.
Yesterday we finally finished unpacking into this beautiful two story house. It’s white with a black trim around it. The living room is huge and the kitchen is beautiful. I have the only bedroom upstairs because my sister thought it would be cool to sleep in the basement and the master bedroom is on the first floor. I got up and out of bed to get ready for school. I was really excited because this was the first school that I’ve ever been to where I don’t have to wear uniform. That was about the only thing that I was excited about.
I put on a light blue shirt that had the word “INTROVERT!” and some gray knee length shorts. I put on one of my many black shoes, grabbed my bag and went down to the kitchen for breakfast.
“Good morning dad.” I said as I walked down the stairs.
“Good morning sunshine. Ready for your first day of highschool?” my dad asked.
“No, I’m terrified. Can I just stay home for today and not go to school?” I replied.
“No, you can’t. The only thing that you’ll accomplish is being known as the girl that missed the first day of school.” My older step-sister Regan said before my dad could respond.
“I wasn’t asking you Regan, I was asking dad.” Ever since my mom, who was a demon, passed away and her horns grew in Regan acts like she’s in charge. My horns are growing in slower than hers and she keeps bragging about them. I hate it when she brags, and I’m not the kind of person that hates things. When my mom married my dad she became apart of the family I was only years old and I knew that I wasn’t going to like her. She always took my toys from me, took my phone and dropped it in the toilet, and she threw away my drawings. I always dig through the trash looking for them, I always got in trouble for what she did because “she knew better than to do that”.
“Sorry Rea, but your sister is right. We were talking before you interrupted.” Dad said agreeing with me
“Step-sister.” I said reminding dad that me and “Rea” are not related at all.
“Oh my gosh! Just face the fact that we’re family! What’s done is done! Kamie made the decision to marry my dad and you have to deal with it!” Regan yelled at me. Tears began to form in my eyes and my sister knew that she crossed the line.
“I’m going to school!” I yelled as I began to run out of the house towards my new school.
“Charlotte wait!” My dad called out for me as I slammed the door.
