The first day of school.

Fun is not the word that comes to mind.

Boarding school in Diverus is strict and hard. The subjects are not the same as school on Earth. Some subjects can get you killed, like flaming dodgeball. And the teachers, oh my goodness...they treat the students like kindergarteners! All in all, boarding school in Diverus is awful.

Avoid it.

I snatched my luggage out of the trunk of my Corolla and walked across the busy parking lot.

I was in my dorm and settled in in under an hour. A new record.

This was my second year at Dolor High School. My first wasn't that bad actually. I made three friends; Karou, Logan and Felix. And even some enemies; Laini and Gabe.


I turned around to see my best friend, Karou Walsh.

"Oh my goodness! I wasn't sure if you were coming this year! How's Felix and you? Did he ask you out yet?" I nudged her when I said Felix.

"Felix and I are good. How are you and Logan?" She asked.

"Umm well. He stayed with my family and I during the summer and we've become much closer."

She winked at me and just then the boys walked in.

"Hey guys. Up for some fuseball after Kar unpacks?" Felix asked.

Karou blushed when he said her name.

"Uh, yeah sure. You coming Kar?"

"Sure. Just let me finish and I'll be right there." She said.

"I'll stay here and help Kar. We'll me you two at the games room." Felix said referring to Logan and I.

"Umm okay. Bye Kar, bye Felix. See ya." Logan grabbed my hand and pulled me out the door. I smiled like an idiot until he was snapping his fingers in my face muttering "Anybody in there? Earth to Dove!" I shook out of my crazed daze and hugged him. I felt his arms wrap around my waist. It seemed like hours before we seperated. He faced me and kissed my hair.

"Look, Dove, I've been meaning to ask you something."

"Go on." I motioned.

"Well, we've been friends for some time now."

Again, I motioned.

"Would you like to try and beat me at 'extreme fuseball'?" He smirked.

My heart dropped then sped up again at the words 'extreme fuseball'.

"Hell yes! I'll kick your ass!"

"You remember the first time we played 'extreme fuseball' together?" He asked in that cheesy way when you tilt your head upright.

My mind flashed back to last year. Logan, Kar, Felix and I were playing 'extreme fuseball' when the fire alarm went off. Sprinklers came out of the ceiling tiles and soaked us.

Again I found Logan snapping his fingers in my face.

"Sorry, just uh, um flashback."

"It's fine. Now can we please play?"


10 Hours Later

I was back at my dorm room, listening to music, laying on my bunk.

"So, what happened after I left the dorm? Did you and Felix do anything?"

"We ended up going back to his room to play video games. He showed me how to play Attack of the Mamzi's. It was...interesting"

"Well, we should go to sleep. It's getting late and I saw our scheduales. We have again this year. 'Hello Dolor High! I predict alot of homework...and showers of spit in 's classroom!' "
