The Twists of Fate: Chapter One: Part Five
(well, here we are, part five, and in case you're wondering, it's 4:53am, and i have to be at work in 7 mins. I hate this shift.)
I showed Pete around the school. Most of the rooms looked the same, all had worn out chalkboards, so white with dust you could barely read what was being written on them half the time. The chairs all looked the same, like they where about to fall apart, as if a colony of termites had had a free lunch but then decided to quit before the meal was done. There was nothing special about our school, even if it was the only one in the city. We finally made our way back around, and ended up at the office.
“You’ll need to check in here,” I said as I stopped outside the door and looked up to him.
“Thanks for your help,” he said as he handed me back the books he had been carrying the entire time. “Will I see you later?”
“I’m sure we’ll have a class or two together.” I said with a smile. “Bye!” I said as I took off down the hallway, ran to my locker, hurriedly threw the books in, and ran to my class. The bell rang right as I entered the door.
“Well, decided to come to school today Miss Kaoru?” the teacher asked as I stood in the doorway, the bell just finishing its toll as I shut the door behind me.
“I was showing someone around sir,” I said quietly as I looked up at him.
“Save your charity work for later. Take your seat.” He said with a growl.
“Yes sir,” I said even more quietly as I headed for my seat. I looked around at my classmates, each saying “Hi!” to me as I walked by and took my seat at the back of the class next to Sarah.
“Gez, what’s his problem?” I asked as I flew my book bag on the ground next to my chair.
“I don’t know,” she said as I leaned over and whispered something to her that made her laugh out loud.
“Ladies! If you do not wish to join Mr. Pickledesky in the principle’s office, I suggest you SHUT UP, and PAY ATTENTION!”
“Sorry, sir.” We said quietly in unison as we looked at each other after he had turned back around and smiled. I got out a piece of paper and wrote, “Did he really send Drew to the office already?” and handed it sneakily to Sarah.
“Yep. He was standing up next to the window, and the “teach” sent him to the office. I guess he thought he was suicidal or something.” Was the reply. “He’s the one who’s suicidal!”
“The “teach” is crazy.” I wrote back to her as I pretended I was paying attention. I took another look around our classroom and noticed someone sitting in the corner, sort of all by himself. He was writing something and his brown hair was covering his eyes. “Who’s that?” I asked Sarah outloud.
“Humm…I’m not quite sure. He must be new too. I’ve never seen him before.”
“Ladies! I’ve had enough! Miss Kaoru, to the principle’s office! Now!” he said as he threw down the chalk he held in his hand.
“Yes, sir,” I said as I left my seat and headed toward the door. I looked to the guy and saw he was following me with his gaze, his dark green eyes following my movements. I got a real look at his face, and saw it was the guy who ran into me this morning. I turned around fast and walked out of the door as my heart began to beat fast. I stepped out of the doorway, closed the door, and fell against the wall. Why is my heart beating so fast? I said to myself as I took a deep breath to calm down. I headed for the office; my feet knew where to go, so I wasn’t really watching where I was going, or even paying attention. I just couldn’t get his face out of my head.
