Lust between the roses
The New Girl
The Black limousine with tinted windows pulled to a stop outside the vast steps of St Edwards Preparatory school. Five buildings were dotted around but this car had stopped outside the largest. Infinite woodland and fields seem to surround the school, proberly over 20 acres. The buildings were tall and Victorian, with wrought iron gates. The walls were covered in ivy that shone and glittered in the sunlight and the gardens were trimmed to perfection. The driver pulled to a stop and quickly hopped out to open the door for his two passengers in the back.
He opened the door on the left first, the one furthest away from the building and out stepped a tall man with greying hair and twinkling mocha eyes. His tan seemed natural rather than fake, and he obviously took good care of himself, though a thin stubble grew on his cheeks. He smiled a thanks to his driver who was already making his way round to the other side. Opening the door he offered his hand to the passenger who took it gracefully pulling herself up.
The seventeen year old looked up at her new school. Her curly, dark, brown hair cascaded past her shoulders stopping just below them, and her eyes, the same mocha as the other passenger, seemed complex behind her long lashes. She let out a small and silent sight as she inspected every corner of the building as if trying to find some minute detail she could fault.
She looked down at the school uniform she had to wear. Tartan skirt that was dark blue, green and red. White blouse. Dark blue blazer. A tie was optional. As well as that she wore Grey knee socks and a grey sleeveless sweater. Her blouse has capped sleeved and she'd decided against the tie. Her black ballet pups had little bow on each and in her hair she wore a black bow to one side. Her coat was cream and long, past her skirt to about knee length.
"Gabriella." Called the man and she turned.
"Papi?" she question towards her father, Tomas Montez who smiled sweetly at her as he walked round the car.
He engulfed her in his arms and kissed the top her head "Be good…" he whispered in her ear
"I'll try Papi," she sighed before pulling slowly out of his grasp and turning towards the pile of suitcases the driver had just unloaded.
"Thank you Alfie," she smiled as her eyes flickered over the three suitcases of different sizes each with the same Louis Vuitton print. Alfie passed her the matching vanity case and she smiled courteously before reaching back into the car to find her purse.
"Now Carrie said she was going to ship the trunk over first thing so that should be with you as soon as," her father stated not noticing the face his daughter pulled at the mention of her stepmothers name.
"Ok Papi," she replied in a monotone before wrapping her arms around his neck and kissing his cheek.
"I'll miss you princess," he smiled just as the headmaster, Charles Rivers appeared at the large oak door and bounded down the steps towards them. Gabriella rolled her eyes at the tall man with his slicked back hair and his too shiny shoes. He obviously thought he was the big shot. Behind him appeared what seemed a younger version of the principal, but much more handsome, wearing the boys uniform, Blue blazer, grey trousers and a tartan tie. The boy also wore a purple Ralph Lauren sweater. He smirked at Gabriella who frowned before turning towards Mr Rivers.
"Ahhh you must be Tomas Montez, owner of the Chicago Bulls." Smooched Charles shaking Tomas's hand firmly "And this must be Gabriella." He raised his eyebrows turning to her before calling "BLAKE! Show Miss Montez to reception."
The boy slowly started to saunter down the steps towards her "Hey," he smirked again. Gabriella looked coldly at him before taking the largest suitcase by the handrail and rolling it towards the steps, Alfie close behind with the other two.
They made it into the large building and Blake pointed towards a large desk with a redhead sitting behind it. She seemed bored as she picked at the nail varnish on her fingernails, but looking up noticing Blake she smiled flirtatiously.
"Hey Blake!" she giggled as he walked over and leaned on her desk.
"Hey Samantha." He said watching Gabriella walk over
Gabriella cleared her throat "Hi I'm Gabriella and umm Mr Rivers told me to come her. I'm new."
Samantha yawned passing her some sheets of paper and a room key, "Map, activities list, schedule and key. Any questions ask student advisor Margo she's over there." She pointed in some vague direction before turning back to Blake "So Blake how've you been."
"Oh ya know good…same as always!" he winked before turning to Gabriella "Come on Gabsy let me show you your dorm."
"My names Gabriella." She replied hotly "Don't call me Gabsy!" she let go of her suitcase and turned to hug Alfie "Bye Alf I'll miss you." She smiled as he nodded before turning round to walk off.
"Want some help with all your bags?" Blake asked raising one eyebrow.
"Yes if you don't mind." Sighed Gabriella conveying no emotion in her voice waiting for Blake to lead the way.
"Ok so as you can see there are eight buildings. Four are dorms. Girls ages 11-15, Boys aged 11-15, Girls ages 16-18 and Boys aged 16-18." He sighed in a very bored voice. "In each dorm there is a houseparents flat, a kitchen, a dining room, common rooms for each of the years, a general room, a duty office, an exercise room and a library. In the younger dorms the rooms are for groups of 10. In the older year's groups of six or seven." He paused for a couple of seconds as if trying to remember what he had to say next.
"The building we've just been in hold the offices and is where the principal and the deputy live. The building next to it is where the classrooms are and the building next to that is the P.E department. The last building, which is the biggest, is where the common room and other member of staff live." He sighed again as they reached the dorm for girl's aged 16-18.
Gabriella looked up at this new building, which was about the same size as the one they'd just been in. engraved above the door were the words "Rose house". She tested the word in her head a couple of times before wondering what the other houses were called.
"Where's your dorm?" Blake asked, and Gabriella noticed the bored tone was gone from his voice.
"Its ummm…" she looked at her schedule "Number 12."
"Oh that's the best one." He shrugged "All my friends are in that one and it's the biggest.
"Oh your friends?" she asked beginning to walk towards the front door.
"Well my friends which are girls…" he shrugged following her "You'll meet them soon enough.
"Ok." She smiled pushing the door. "Where is everybody?" she said furrowing her brow.
"Introductory speech made by the deputy head. Its mandatory on the first day back but then you get the rest of the day off to chill or whatever."
"Oh ok." Her eyes widened as she stepped inside. The place was huge yet so homely and cluttered. Definitely a girls house.
The pair began to climb the stairs up towards the top floor which she was told was her room. The finally reached the top and Gabriella slipped out her key card putting it through the scanner so the light flashed green.
The room was long, with a slanting attic rood. It had wooden floorboards but an assortment or rugs covered well over half of it. The walls had been painted white for neutrality, but over each of the seven beds hung different posters obviously showing how different each of these girls were. There were three queen size beds on each side and one at the far corner next to a balcony. Gabriella noticed that this one was empty so trundled over with her suitcases resting them against it.
"Thanks." She smiled at Blake waiting for him to leave.
Blake smirked at her, "Aren't you going to tell me about yourself?"
Gabriella scoffed "And why would I do that. Do you mind leaving?" she asked trying not to be rude.
"Do you mind telling me about yourself?" his eyes glinted.
"Yes! Please leave…" she begged.
"Ok heres a deal you tell me about yourself and I'll lave!"
"Fine." She sighed flopping back on her bed to stare at the ceiling. Five minutes later she sat up.
"My names Gabriella May Montez and I'm seventeen. I only turned seventeen two weeks ago so I'm proberly one of the youngest seniors. My fathers Tomas Montez owner of the Chicago bulls. He just got married to Carrie Shaw the journalist." Gabriella spat out Carries name in disgust.
"It's my first time at boarding school and I'm unsure yet weather or not I'm actually going to like it. I have a boyfriend called Michael back home in Chicago. I dance, that's my passion and I want to become a dance or a doctor. Also I horse-ride and sometimes swim. Now get out!"
"Okay your majesty..." he smiled closing the door. He thought about everything she just said as he left the Girls dorm. "Gabriella Montez!" he spoke allowed "I think you and I are going to have quit a relationship." He smirked cockily before rushing off towards the boys dorm.
Well what do you think? Please Review :D
