"Look at that new boy! Why is he so pale and short?" I could already hear the taunts in my head as the chauffeur drove me to my new school. As we came around the bend, I caught a glimpse of it. The Rund Tableau Academy struck a foreboding pose, cold and dark. Tall silver spires jutted into the air above the two towers, one for boys, and one for girls. The gate was twisted steel and two gargoyles sat on top of it.
The car pulled into it as the gates creaked open ominously. My new home. Just great. The car driver glared at me through his mirrored glasses. I know, you're wondering how I could tell since they were mirrored glasses. But I could just, you know, tell.
"Get out," The driver said. I gulped and climbed out of the back seat of the limo, snatching my bags and slamming the door just before the man sped off, tires screeching. I stared up at the tall castle, being stupidly cliqued.
As I walked towards the tall doors, they swung open. A short man with a jovial face nodded to me as I walked in and took my bags. "Common rooms to the left, up the stairs, and two rights. Don't worry about anything, Arthur. If you do need something, we'll take care of it," he said. "I'm Boris, don't be afraid to ask for me!" he said as I walked past.
It wasn't hard to find the Common Room, but when I got there, it was hard to make myself enter. Finally, I just pushed the door open and stepped in. Three boys were gathered around a TV laughing at something were other. Just as I entered, they all glanced up
"Nervous much?" the one on the left said. He was tall and had light brown hair and stubble on his cheeks. Stubble, already! I barely had a few hairs!
"What's so frightening about a door, huh?" The one on the right asked. He was also tall with reddish wavy hair. He was almost as pale as I was.
"Or were you more scared of us? Of what we'd say about you, albino?" That was the one in the middle. He was shorter than the other two with a red face and blonde hair.
I stuttered, not knowing how to reply to that. Neither did I know how they knew that I was standing outside the door. Then, seeing the TV, I realized that they must have been watching the security cams. Wow, that was embarrassing to have had them watching me.
"What are your names? I'm Arthur," I said, trying to be friendly.
"Eddy," said the one who was already hairy.
"I'm Wayne," said the red-haired boy.
"Percy, but its none of your business what my name is, stalker," said the other. I turned away from them; I clearly wasn't going to win that battle. Kai and Jay were sitting in the corner with a boy I knew as Garrett. He came over sometimes when I lived with Hector.
"Hey Kai, Jay. And how are you Garrett?" I asked. Suddenly, Wayne was at my throat.
"How do you know my brother, fag?"
"H-he used to come over when I lived with Jay and Kai," I stuttered out. Percy burst into wheezing laughter.
"Ohmigod. That is just to funny. You used to live with those wannabes? No wonder you're….you!"
I turned and left the room. School was going to be hell.
