A/N: The first 20 chapters will be sort of an intro. Just wait, the plot will kick in after a while. And they're short chapters so that's good.

I'm Kira Elaine and I am sitting in my cell with my cell mates. I am writing this for a reason that I am unsure of. Perhaps it's that when I die I want a part of myself to live on. Although I doubt anyone other than myself -and maybe Nicole- will ever read this, I cannot help but write it.

I have been in this place, the School, ever since I was 5 years old, and have been here for 7 years. As have my cell mates/ best friends. We used to be from another planet called Orpholio. Then these "astronomers", if you will, came and raided our country. It was a small planet. It had a population of only about 200,000. Our country had a population of about 2,000. Most people in our country had escaped to our underground passage ways, but 20 of us, all children, were too late and were captured to be tested on. They sent us to the School, a sort of science lab. Unfortunately we will probably live here for the rest of our lives.
