Act One:

Weekday Mornings


She couldn't tell how it started. This whole 'thing,' as she called it. Is it really such a hard thing to admit? Just go. Say 'it' aloud. Heh. Heh. Riiight. Like that's ever going to happen. She just sits back and watches. Just for the hell of it. Just because she can. Just cause she just wants it to fall and crash all around them. But, at the same time, she doesn't want that to happen.

Her name was Alexis Hunter and this is her story.

She woke up from a dreamless night. Her eyes just staring at her barren white ceiling. She didn't even know that paint can even come in such a bright color. It made her shiver, just a bit. The cool, cold room... Her mother must have forgotten to put up the temperature again. Alex always did get cold easily. She sat up. Her eyes were drowsy filled with sand from his spell. Did their used to be a time when she was glad to wake up early?

Just then her best friend, one of them anyways, just burst through their window, landing perfectly in front of her. ( Of course she opened it first, or Alex's mother would curse her out again. ) "Moping around again, Alex?" She said looking directly at her, a few inches from her face.

She blushed. Of course, Remy was always an impulsive one. Never to thing about her actions until after she does it. Not that it bothered her. Not too much at least. "I'm not moping." She protested meekly. Alex was never good at lying, even for a genius.

The hyper teen, Remy as Alex called her, moved back with a shrug. "Right. Whatever. Come on, you're gonna be late for school again." She said heading over to her closet and tossing some clothes at Alex. "Hurry up and change."

Alex caught them awkwardly, before falling flat on her face. "Ow..."

"For goodness sakes, Alex!" Remy complained as she helped the poor girl up. "You're so clumsy!"

"Well, you didn't have to come barging in here in the first place!" Alex yelled back.

Remy only smiled and patted Alex on the back. "That's more like the Alex I know!"

She rolled her eyes, but she couldn't help smiling back. "Whatever. Now, get the heck out of here so I can change!"

Remy shrugged. "If you insist, but you'd better close the window and the curtain before you change. You don't know who might be staring out there." She said with a mischievous glint in her eyes.

"Remy!" Alex blushed furiously. "Jerk!" She said slamming the door on her.
