Chapter 1: Witch
Ugh. I thought waking up to that false sweet as maple syrup tone.
"What?" I grumbled through my pillow.
"Time to get up its picture day and guess what?" cooed my sister Lindsey. Lindsey was a nice and shapely size 2 'model' With perfect elbow length platinum blond waves, lush rosy full pink lips and clear perfect skin not a blemish in sight 'miss popular pretty perfect' the three p's... and sadly everything I wanted to be, well except for her attitude I absolutely can't stand that!
"WHAT?" I said louder getting annoyed this early in the morning.
"I just decided to get you up because I told mom I'd help you primp yourself to look your best!"
"GREAT!" I said in my infamous sarcastic voice.
"OOPS I forgot to tell you it's 7:30 and I have to go and eat breakfast sorry I can't help you this morning."
"Okay then, thanks for letting me know." I said unsure of why she would get me up saying she was going to help me then doesn't.
"You're welcome ANYTIME!" she replied with a mischievous glint in her eyes.
That's when I realized it's! 7:30! Oh SHOOT! IT'S FREAKING7:30! I have ten minutes till the bus comes and its PICTURE DAY! This is what I meant by FALSE! Well I still have ten minutes in counting so I did what I normally do... Get up, take a shower, brush my teeth and hair, put on makeup although I hate it so just mascara with some soft lips chap stick, then since it picture day I have a "special" outfit picked out for school. I'm wearing an electric blue flower headband which is the only thing new because I don't wear flowers or anything in my hair for that matter. Then I have my uniform, a white long sleeve button up shirt with the cuffs rolled up past my elbows and untucked from my black short pleated skirt with blue thigh high socks and my electric blue and black high top sneakers and of course my grey vest with the school colors on it. Can you guess what they are? Blue and black!
Thank God I'm ready because right as I'm closing the door the bus pulled up.
So of course I get my seat to myself because only kids without cars go to a private school on the bus; by the way did I tell you it's a school for monsters? Yeah if you go to my school you have to be at least one of these monsters like vampyres, shifters, fairies, demons/angels, werewolves, people like me witches, etc. I'm listening to my iPod and counting the same stops we go through every year, so when I looked up to see how close we are to school and realized we had a new stop. I look out the window to see who it is and it can't be but unfortunately it is... Tristan, Annoying Freaking Jerk Face with dreamy chocolate brown eyes, soft, shaggy hair to match, and that golden glow to his skin that makes him look like a god...NO NO NO I HATE HIM! Why am I thinking like this? It's probably Monday getting to me and that he actually is a pretty boy it's just his personality that makes him ugly. 'I wonder why he is riding the bus?' I thought to myself, I mean he does have wings. My train of thought is soon cut short by the screeching stop of the bus. I got off as fast as I could and ran over to my friends!
"When in the Sam Heck did Tristan Cross ride the freaking bus?" I said trying not to yell.
"What?" They all said in unison.
"WHEN HAS TRISTAN FREAKING CROSS EVER RIDDEN THE BUS?"
"Hey, hey, hey calm down just because you like him doesn't mean you have to tell the whole school..." My best friend Rosa joked.
"Ha ha ha very funny Rosa." I said, my voice dripping with sarcasm.
Rosa, she's my "twin"; well not really, but we're so alike people wonder if we are actually twins. She has a short pixie cut it's so black it has a red tint if that makes sense, she also is built like an athlete (she is crazy because she thinks she is fat when she has some nice curves boys would love to get close to if you know what I mean) another thing which I don't think is fair is that she is naturally tan, her eyes are such a breath taking dark chocolate that when you take one look in them and you fall in love instantly, or so it seems. It's so funny because she doesn't see herself as beautiful and her class is vampyre, she is the only one in the school and I'm sure all the boys think she is sexy.
On the other hand I have long straight black hair but instead of red it has a blue tint a lot of people ask if it's fake, but it's not, I'm sure I have the weirdest hips in the world, I'm told it's called a pear shape, but I'm not convinced. I'm also around 2 or 3 inches taller than her and I'm really pale with just big, chocolate, almond shaped eyes and she says I'm the one who is pretty. Other than that we're one and the same.
"It's my specialty!" she said to my sarcastic comment.
Then Tori, like me her class is witch, and is a "fun-sized" (she HATES to be called short) skinny girl with golden curly long (as in to her butt long) blonde hair came over and asked who was with Tristan.
"Oh you mean Demon? Well Tristan and he are cousins and they don't talk much but when they do you better listen because it's usually important and like I said they almost never talk, well except with each other, oh and they're class is demon obviously." I said.
"Oh I've got to start paying attention to these things." She said sheepishly. "I just love their wings though! They're black, but they look like they have every color you could imagine in them! How is that possible?"
"I don't know Tori..." I replied not very into the conversation, but more interested in why Tristan was riding the bus instead of just flying to school...
"Oh I just heard the bell ring we should get to class." Rosa said.
When I turned to tell her thanks I saw her staring at Demon and when she looked away he was staring at her too, so of course I planned to interrogate her at lunch.
Well first period went by fast since all we did was listen to Professor Wild (his class is werewolf) lecture us in his class that teaches us how to interact with other types of monsters and today out of all things were werewolves what a coincidence... Next period was accelerated magic for Tori and me; with Professor Falun (her class is witch). Then elemental uses and properties; you know water, fire, earth, air, and spirit; with Professor Drake; and finally it was lunch time!
I was walking with Tori when I accidently ran into something or rather someone. I was just about to apologize when I realized it was… Tristan.
"Well I'm waiting." He said expectantly.
"For what, puberty to hit?" I retorted not exactly sure of what he was waiting for.
"No for you to admit you like me." He said with a smirk. God that smirk would be the death of me! How can someone be so attractive on the outside yet have such an unappealing personality?
"Well guess what? I'm waiting for you to wipe that smirk off your face! Now this may be hoping for too much but I'm also waiting for you to realize not everyone on this planet is a fan of yours!"
Then I left him standing there before he even had a chance to reply and when I got to the cafeteria Tori finally spoke up and practically yelled,
"That was AMAZING! No one has EVER left Tristan speechless before!" Leave it to Tori to exaggerate everything,
That's when the whole cafeteria decided I was the most interesting thing on the menu in other words they stared daggers into my back wondering what could have happened so they could feed it to the latest gossip until I sat down next to Rosa and she gave them all the 'I'll kill you all if you don't back off' glare then they went back to their usual chatter.
"Okay spill!" she said way too enthusiastically.
"No YOU spill I saw you and Demon steeling glances with each other tell me what that's about!"
"Crap!" she frantically looked around and whispered to me, "Okay okay I'll admit it I have a huge crush on Demon." In a lusty voice she said, "He's gotten a lot cuter and has that emo vampyre flare to him you know I just love! Okay so now I've told you my story, so don't be shy with yours."
"Fine," I said through clenched teeth "I was walking with Tori to the café when I bumped into him," I said him with as much hate as I could manage towards Cross (to tell you the truth there wasn't much) he's just too likeable; stupid cute! Ugh! Why the hell am I thinking like this? "Then he told me… I'm waiting…" I said in my generic boy voice. "And I asked him for what? Then he said for me to admit I liked HIM! Now that really pissed me off so I told him what I was waiting for…"
By this time Rosa was at the edge of her seat gripping it so hard I thought she was going to break it!
"WELL WHAT DID YOU SAY?"
I was just about to laugh when I decided to say; "You'll just have to listen to the rumors for that one."
"You're officially a suckish twin, I'll bite you if you don't tell me!" she whined sticking her tongue out at me like a five year old.
I chuckled at the sight I knew she'd never bite me. "It's my specialty!" I said mimicking her voice from this morning.
I was tired from all the crap I've dealt with today so I decided to cast my little fever spell I learned in fifth grade from the book "Spells to Get You Out of Anything!" (I know it's forbidden to use at school, but I don't give a crap) chapter one School/Boring Events.
I was still reminiscing when I got to the clinic. Crap! I didn't do it in the hall and now the nurse is going to know I'm not actually sick especially since she is an elf they know everything okay not everything, but one thing is for sure they are definitely not stupid! When I stepped inside I kept thinking just let me go home just let me go home repeatedly in my head and when she started to stare at me with a blank expression I almost panicked! When I realized she was just standing there like a zombie. Then she said, "You can go home," In a melancholy voice I let my breath out that I hadn't realized I was even holding and said thanks and started on my way home.
Walking is a good time to think and listen to music (as I've learned from Rosa and her obsessive walking) so I plugged in my headphones and listened to a few songs when it hit me! The nurse didn't take my temperature or anything she just let me walk out of the school! At that very moment my back started to ache, but I was too absorbed in thought to feel anything, but numbness. My mind was racing with,
I've never heard of a witch with the power to control the human mind especially elves minds I mean plants yeah animals sure, but people that's insane! Maybe the nurse is an animal disguised as an elf yeah that sounds right! NO NO NO that's wrong I'm just some type of freak accident waiting to happen!
And with that thought I was at home and collapsed on my bed for some much deserved rest.
