I was there. It was a giant castle, bigger then the house I'd lived in for the past few months.Berry was bigger then anything I'd ever seen. As my bus came to astop, I jumped off it. No going back now, I thought as the bus drove away. I gulped, looking at my surroundings. The school was constucted of old grey bricks.Icould see through some of the windows to posh interior, the others were blockedby fancy red curtains. The schools surrounding land included a mix of cobbles and beautiful flowers. There were direct paths to the door, which was a dark shade of brown wood. A water fountain, that wasn't currently running, was situated in the middle of the grounds.I could see lots more buildings then the main one Iwas looking at, all on a giant field of grass. I later discovered that the mainwas the dorms and the others were the classroom.I looked at my watch. Ten minutes until I was supposed to be a.I started a steady walking pace, dragging my suitcases behind me, my short black hair clouding myface. I followed a path though the middle, and it wasn't long until I reached the large wooden door. I contemplated knocking, but just then it started to risefrom the bottom, forcing me to hurry backwards.The opening was magnificant. I watched in awe as it slowly rose to the top, my jaw dropping. When it had fully opened I could see the people behind who had beenpulling it up with ropes. The room they stood in was just...wooden. There was no other way to decribe it. All I could see was a door. No furniture.Just wood.Apart from the rope pullers, there was one person in the room.A woman. She had faded blond hair that was tucked behind her ears. Her face wasbrown and crinkled.. But she was wearing clothes like she was around 30. Her blouse was white, with back buttons. She was wearing a soot coloured pencil skirt,and her black shoes were heeled."You must be Aaliyah." She said in a strong French accent."Err...Yeah."I replied nervously. She signaled for me to come towards her. I walked over, filled up with curiousity. She had a weird air of royalness around her. When I reached her she said"I am Miss Loralee , your new headmistress. Follow me."She led me through the door into the castle like interior; there were paintingsand everything. Flowers were neatly placed on small, white, square tables. Sparking chanderliers hung down from the walls, which were painted white, and the floor was a light brownish colour, kind of pretty.We went up two flights of stairs and stopped before a door."It's quite late, you must be tired." She opened the door to about 10 sleeping girls, and gestured to a bed at the back.I tiptoed slowly over as she closed thedoor and when I got on the bed I fell asleep straight away..I had the dream of darkness again that night. I never dreamt anything other thenit. This time, it was like I was the darkness. I was the pit, and I was pullingeveryone around me in. I was destroying the world..I opened my eyes groggily to see a crowd of girls surrounding me."Who are you?"
 
"Aaliyah...," I groaned, still half asleep."Cool," one said. I sat up, looking at them."I'm Stevie," a girl said, holding out her hand for me to shake,"and these are Chloe, Maegan, Esther, Jessica and Scarlett!"Um, hi," I said. Stevie had dyed red hair with streakes of black in it and her clothing style was punk. I instantly liked her."Want me to show you around?"she asked. I nodded and she linked arms with me like we'd always been friends as we walked out the room.We strolled through a lot of places but I was too shy to ask exactly where we were.Stevie smiled at me and I politely smiled back. At this point we went through anormal looking door that led us to the most beautiful garden ever. Neatly cut trees surrounded the edges, while circles of different types of flowers occupied the middle. It was obvious they didn't keep birds there, though every one of themI saw looked permenantly stuck to the amazing picture."Wow..." was all I could say."I know, its beautiful, isn't it?" She smiled her smile again.I remembered thatthere was supposed to be some shops somewhere ."Where are all the shops?""Oh, there in the nearest town, it's a really long walk.I can take you if you want, maybe this afternoon?"Stevie looked at her watch."C'mon," she said,"it's nearly breakfast."As we walked back along the beautiful hall I thought of something."Do boys and girls have breakfast together?""Yep." Was all she said."What are they like?" Stevie grinned."Most are just boring but some are..."At this she looked up and sighed.I had myanswer."And now you get to see them!" She pushed open the door. Children of 12 to 19 sat eating and chatting at the same time. People were everywhere. People. Lots ofthem. I'd never seen as many. Even on my ride there it was late and hadn't beenas busy. It was overcrowded. Plus they were facing me.I realised why as Stevie blushed."My entrance wasn't that dramatic, was it?" She whispered to me. I laughed. Stevie looked at me betrayed, and then started laughing to. By then everyone had gone back to when they were doing. We walked to a table at the left of the room. The people I'd met this morning were already there."We thought you'd dissapeared!" Chloe said.I smiled."What have you been doing?" asked Scarlett.
 
"Not much really. Just the garden. We're going into town this afternoon though.""It's great there."Esther said to me, but she didn't sound like it was. She waslooking at me in a weird way,as if she didn't like me."Um, yeah, I'm excited." We sat down and I looked around the table. Jessica andMaegan were sitting chatting to the corner(it was a square table), and with their blue eyes and brown hair they were obviously twins. They'd even made an effortto dress the same.Chloe and Scarlett were sitting together,Chloe with Blonde hair and Scarlett with Ginger-both with brown eyes-, but Esther was still lookingat me. Stevie was her best friend then. But Stevie didn't notice. Her green eyeswere focused on me."So, where are you from Aaliyah?" Stevie asked."Cambridge." I replied."What school did you used to go to?""Didn't go to one.""What?! You must've done!" Chloe looked confused."Why?" Scarlett really wanted to know.Should I tell them? Or make up some storyabout posh home schooling. In the heat of it all I decided on the latter."I was home schooled." I mumbled."Probably has no education at all..." Esther said under her breath. I heared. But I didn't show it because I didn't want to get into fights on the first day. Look on the bright side, I thought. At least they didn't know.Guilt ran right through my body. I couldn't help feeling that I shouldn't of lied. No one seemed tohave noticed Esther's little comment either.I heared the door open and looked around. And saw something more beautiful thenthe garden. It was a boy of around fifteen. His messy black hair was mid lenth,shining in the light of an open window. Hed ignored school rules; his top was untucked, and the first few buttons undone. His trousers were tightly fitted, butcame out at the ends. The trainers he wore were converse, and he wore them better then anyone I'd ever seen. His skin was brownish and he looked slightly Chinese. He wore earings, and had a bone necklace on. But the most exciting thing about him was his eyes. They were the lightest shade of blue I'd ever seen, and theyshone in the same sunlight that basked his hair.By the time I'd achnolaged this I was practically dribbling.' Most are just boring but some are...'I remembered Stevie's words. This was one of them."Who's that?" I asked her, my eyes still on him."'That' is the only dateless hottie at this school, although you can probably tell he's been asked more then once. He always turns people down.""Name please?""Mason Ryder.He's stunning, right?""Uh huh.""Anyway," she said "I think it's time we actually get our breakfast."
