Chapter One: (Akira P.O.V)
 
(speaking in third person) She stepped out of the truck slowly, taking in her newsurroundings. The smell of freshly cut grass filled the air as she took in a deep breath. She looked around with desperation. He was nowhere to be seen. She was alone,standing there all alone, waiting 
 for someone who wasn’t there.
“Wake up you idiot! He’s not coming...as usual. Don’t be so depressed, you knew hewouldn’t show. Grow up girl! Smack some sense into that head of yours...AND STOP TALKING TO YOURSELF!”
 
My inner self yelled. I shook my head.
(Speaking in thoughtwith self...weird I know)
He’ll show...he’s just, taking his sweet time about it. That’s all.” 
I replied. I talk to myself, so
what...everyone has their own problems, I talk in thought with myself...I could name worse. It’s
not
like I’m high or something...
 Quick description of self;
I’m 16,
 
5’
2
”, long curly
red hair just passed my rib cage, pale blue
eyes, regular ear piercings, and I’m lean...curvy to be specific. Either way. I’m considered
cute
 by a lot of people, especially by my mother...it can get really annoying some times. Other
people can think whatever they want about me, I don’t really care what they think!
 Anyway...
I just moved to a small town located in the absolute middle of NOWHERE...I have no idea wherethe heck I am really, just some small town I never knew existed till now. I just took a three hourflight to a busy city, just to sit through a five hour drive to my present destination. Tons of funright?
After arriving in this small town I’ve been left waiting in
front of the
visitor’s
center outside of 
town waiting for my mom’s
boyfriend 
 
to come and pick me up. I have no idea who he is, I’venever met him, and by the looks of things...I may never meet him, not I mind. I’ve been sitting
here for 15 minutes now and
he’s still NOT HERE! I’m starting to think they forgot aboutme...wait...he finally decided to come get me, somehow I thought I’d be happier...oh well.
 
“Hey! You must be
Akira
...I’m Claude, your mother said you wouldn’t be here till a quarter to
one, sorr
y ‘bout that.” He said as he extended his hand to me. I put on a fake smile and tilted
my head to the side crossing my arms behind me. He smiled like he enjoyed my
little girl 
look.
“It’s
alright...at l
east your here now.” I laughed
. He sighed and we shook hands. He seemed likea nice guy...sort of.
“So what do you think of town so far?” He asked. I hate it when they try to start conversation.
 
“It’s quiet.” I said.
“It’s awesome! So empty and horribly silent! I love it Claude.”
My innerself teased. He looked at me for a moment.
 
“That’s it?”
 
“Well...yeah. There’s not much here, it’s...quiet, like there
s no one even living here. Not much
too really say about it.” Whatev
er it was I said, it seemed offended him for reason. I wonderwhy? I sat in the passenger
seat of his silver corvette, we didn’t talk after that
, it was silent butnot weird, and we
 just didn’t really have anything to talk about. It wasn’t long before he pulled
into the driveway of a small white house about a mile outside a very small town...WHY is
EVERYTHING so...isolated here? I just don’t understand.
 
“Welcome to your new home. Come on, your mother’s working so she won’t be here till diner,I’ll help you get situated.” Before I could stop him he wa
s pulling my bag out of the trunk andhauled it inside. It was bigger than it looked. My room was upstairs, the one only up therebesides storage. It was descent. I mean...it had everything I needed; a dresser, closet, desk,shelving, my books, school stuff, and a nice view of the forest through my window...good forsneaking out of too I imagine. Not that I would do that! Just saying, I have paranoia sometimes,
the idea that someone could sneak into my room that way...didn’t make me feel all that well.
Claude toured me around before setting out to making something to eat, by the looks of whathe was grabbing...some buttered turkey with peanut butter...guys eat the weirdest things!Ewwwee...I went to my room so I would
n’t
throw-up my last meal watching him scarf down peanutbuttered turkey...seriously how he can eat that!?
Never thought I’d be so happy to see mom when she brought in Chinese food take
-out. I loveegg noodles, my favorite, as my mother knew of course. We ate and I went to bed, feeling fatand happy, up to my room to catch some ZZzz before my first day at my new high school...what
fun that will be. I’m so excited I can’t wait for mom to dr
ag me out of bed in the morning
 
“Akira! Akira...get your lazy butt out of bed!” Mom yelled as she yanked the covers off 
me...ohh its cold!
“Mom! Brrrrr....cold.” I mumbled as my teeth chattered. I rapped my arms around myself as,
with a grin, she tossed the blanket on me and walked out. I swear she gets some sort of sickpleasure out of that! So MEAN...sometimes. I got up and dressed myself in dark blue jeans, alight blue loose fitted blouse with lace and brushed my hair into a long ponytail. After gettingready for the day ahead I ran downstairs for breakfast. Claude was sitting at the table eatingtoast with jam on it, mom was driving away
to work. “Does she walk long hours of something?”
 
“Yea
h
...12 hour days, gone most of the time...I work night shift 4 days a week so I’ll be herewhen you get back.” He beamed, like it was s
ome sort of privilege. Whatever, I grabbed sometoast and buttered it before shoving it in my mouth. So good...my mom makes the best toastEVER, wish I could have said goodbye before she left for work. Oh well, no sense crying about it,mommy will come home eventually...I had more important issues to address, like my new...high
 
school. I finished my first year in my home town till mom ordered me away, now I have toadapt to an entirely new school for the next,
worst 
, two years of my life...uhhhh!
I can’t stress how horrible it is to step out of your mother’s boyfriend’s
car on your firstday of school. Every signal person there was staring at me like there was a huge arrow blinkingabove my head! I was happy when he drove away silently, not saying anything weird like mom
does...that’s one point for Claude!
The school was a red colour with medium sized white
windows and steel double doors, it was huge, and I couldn’t wait to tour it...mainly to find the
library. I really like books! As I dreamed of the pages I could shove my face into a blonde hairgirl stepped in front of me.
“Hi! You must be new here.” She said sarcastically. I thought that would be obvious toanyone that saw me arrive; I obviously never appeared here until today! Obviously...I’m new.
 
“Yeah...I’m
-
 
“I don’t care who you are...you just need to know who I am. I’m Catherina Colbry, headcheerleader of this dump. Now run along little girl, you have a good day now!” She laughed
with her three friends, her evil minions by the looks of it.
 Rude much!
” 
My
inner self yelled as she walked off. I walked on slowly to the principal’s office
to get my school schedule and my books. As I walked down the hall everyone walked by me likeI was invisible to the human eye...this kids are harsh! Maybe Catherina got to them...hummm?
“You must be Miss Drey. I’m Mrs. Andrews, your English teacher. I have your things herefor you.” Beamed a short red haired woman who looked like she was somewhere in her mid
twenties. She was wearing a black suit jacket and long black skirt. She looked very pretty.
“Yeah. I’m Akira Drey, nice to meet you Mrs. Andrews.” I replied, taking my schedule and booksfrom her. “My mom was suppose to have filled out my paperwork, did she?” I asked.
 
“No, actually, a Mr. Claude Darren filled it out yester
day morning before running off, said he
was late for something.” Her face was plank like a piece of white paper. That must have beenwhy he was late picking me up. Now it makes sense, he’s a really nice guy!“Good, is this everything then?”
 
“Yes. You such
 
be all set.” She said as she walked off. “I have some paperwork of my own to do.I’ll see you in class later on. Bye now.”
 
“Bye.” I uttered as she closed the door. I didn’t even have time to enter the room. I was still
standing in the hallway! Now people were looking at me...when I
don’t want them too.
I stoodout like a sore thumb; glossy red hair, simple (but cute) clothing, studded emerald earrings, andcarrying books up past my nose...I really stood out. Catherina walked up to me, eye to eye.
“Hey...looking good bookie! I’ll be sure to rely on you when I need my books packed...byenow!” She hummed, waving to me. Man she’s annoying! And those
minions
of hers.
