open. It was very sunny, I doubted that the vampyres would want to be seen byanyone, so I walked to the bathroom that was in the guest room and started tobrush my hair. It was a mess. As I stared at my reflection, I frowned. How was Igoing to fit in? Everyone around here had short hair and had attitude problems.And they were also all pretty. I had long black hair, it went down to about as faras the middle of my back. I was also tan looking, so that part wouldn’t be aproblem. My eyes were a black color, I hoped that no-one would notice that.“Hurry up, Rachel!” Cathy called from downstairs. I could hear the door slammingshut, and I guessed that it was Angeline. So I hurried and threw on a randomoutfit. It was a plain red shirt, and plain jeans. I didn’t stop to look at myselfas I left. When I got downstairs, my Aunt gave me a set of keys.“Here, you can borrow my car.” She insisted. “You know where the school is right?”“Of course.” I said as I was walking out the door.“Good luck, Hun, I’m sure that you will be fine.”“Sure, sure.” I muttered, too low for her to hear. When I walked into the garage,I didn’t know which car I was using, there were so many. So I clicked the “Unlock”button on the set of keys, and found the car that I was using. It was the redConvertible.When I arrived at the school parking lot, there weren’t many spaces left. So I hadto park in the back. I knew that I wasn’t late because there were still teenagerssitting in their cars and talking to people. School this year was going to beruff. Especially without my pack. I just hoped that I wouldn’t kill anyone.I got out of the car, and started heading towards the building that had MainOffice on it. I got a few glances as I was walking. But I was especially beingglared at by a group of teenagers leaning against the side of the school. Theylooked curious. But of course, everyone would be curious because the hadn’t seenme before. So I hadn’t looked much into it. But I couldn’t help but to stare backat the group. They kept staring as well. Then the bell rang instantly. I jumped atthe sudden sound. The group looked at me once more, and then walked away to class.But one of them stayed back and continued to look at me. He had short black hair,and very dark brown eyes that looked black. He wore a simple long, black shirt,with black shorts, and boots. Then he smiled at me, and walked off.What was all of that about?When I arrived at the main office, everyone there glared at me. Was theresomething on my face? I continued walking until I got to the secretary desk.“Hello.” The secretary behind the counter said. Then when she turned to me, shestarted stuttering. “C-can I help you?”“Hi, um, I’m new here, and I needed a class schedule. I think that my Aunt calledyesterday…” I said. She then typed something on her computer.“Ah, yes.” She said. “You are Rachel McCoy, right?”“Yes.”Then she nodded and handed me a piece of paper.“Here’s your schedule.” She said. Then she handed me another piece of paper. “Andhere is a map of the school. There are four floors, and two other buildings.”I nodded.“You will have extra time to get to your class since it is your first week. Goodluck.” She said, duly. I nodded and took off for my first class. I had Chemistrywith Mr. Collins. Ugh.As soon as I walked in the door, everyone stared at me. They were all sitting in abunch, and talking, so I knew that class hadn’t started yet. I walked to theteachers desk.“You must be Rachel McCoy.” The teacher said.I nodded once, “Yes, sir.” I said.Then he smiled. “Well welcome to Chemistry class! I hope that you enjoy your staywith us.” He said. Then he pointed out where I was supposed to sit. I was supposedto sit at Angeline’s table! She glared at me, disgusted, as I went to sit by her.“Great.” I heard her murmur under her breath that only I could have heard. Thatmade me mad, but I tried to control it.
