'I can't be crushing on this guy! I've only just met him ... yeah, he's funny, and sweet and attractive and is making my insides turn to mush and I feel really warm and fuzzy around him, but that doesn't mean I have a crush on him! ...

How I hated it.
I was standing alone, holding my tray of pasta and tomato sauce. I didn't know where I should sit...at my old school I would just sit anywhere that was vacant. Nobody noticed me...but here it was different. If I sat anywhere people would ask me questions and I would just sit there like an idiot, too shy to answer.
Being the new girl sucked badly. It sucked like...it just sucked ok?
Sighing, I looked around once more for a table. There had to be an empty one. But no. Nearly all of them were full.
I'll say it again.
Being the new girl sucked.
I just wouldn't fit in at any of these tables. They all seemed organised by clique. If my little sister, Daisy May was here she would say it was like High School Musical before Gabriella came...whatever that meant.
But she said it everytime everyone was sticking to their clique. So yeah...
I was about to give up and sit down at some table full of those girls who you could just tell they thought they were it when a rabbit came up to me, smiling sweetly.
I figured she was a few years younger then me, judging my her size.
'Hello, my names Cream. Me and my friends noticed that you kinda needed somewhere to sit...so...'
I faked a smile, though I could of died of embarrasment. They had sent her over because they felt sorry for me! I just knew it.
'So um...would you like to sit with us...um...' She broke off, looking at me expectantly.
Oh! she wants my name!
'Oh! My name's Amy - Amy Rose!'
Cream smiled again 'Amy...that's a pretty name!' Cream was wearing a yellow and white striped t-shirt with a white dungaree skirt with a yellow duck embroiderd on the pocket and yellow tights.
On her feet were a pair of yellow and white trainers and she had a yellow ribbon over one ear. It was a good look for her but seemed slightly childish. I would be very suprised it this girl was older then twelve.
I followed her to a table at the back of the cafeteria and instantly all my thoughts of clique coded tables dissapeard. There was a lavender coloured cat with a red jewel on her forehead and a pair of red glasses over her yellow eyes. She was wearing a pair of blue jeans and a light blue smock top with purple flowers printed all over it.
She was reading a book, but I couldn't see the title.
I hope it isn't Twilight.
No offence to any Twilight fans, but I don't really like Twilight...I never saw what was so great about it.
Beside her was a tall, curvy white bat. She was wearing a pink tank top, black denim jacket and black, skinny jeans. She had a lot of makeup on. Blush, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, lipstick you name it!
I wonder how long it takes to get all that off at night...
Next to her was an empty seat which I guessed was Cream's.
Next to the empty seat was a seedrian girl. She had green petals, big blue eyes and red flowers. She was wearing an olive green and blue sweater dress and black leggins, and a golden necklace with a red jewel hanging from it.
She was sketching something, eyes narrowed, biting her lip in concentration.
Next to her was a bright yellow two tailed fox, wearing a black and white t-shirt and worn denim jeans. There was also a small bee in a red t - shirt and green, army print,combats. There was a red echidna in a white t-shirt, grey jacket and jeans, next to a peachy orange coloured echidna in a green skirt, plain white t-shirt and knitted orange cardigan with big, clunky jewellry all over her, and an oranage racoon in a Man United football jersey, jeans and a red beanie hat with small badges pinned all over it.
The last four were all hedgehogs.
One was silver, in a grey hoodie (hood pulled down) and combats. He kept looking over at the cat...
He was so crushing on her.
Next too him was a blonde female hedgehog, who was the prettiest girl there...but she was pretty without being one of those girls who wear a ton of makeup and showy tops. She was wearing a long, short-sleeved white top, and white capris trousers. There was a long white beaded necklace around her neck and a blue hairband on her head. She had white fingerless gloves on too. Her body was slender, and she had good posture...she probably did ballet.
She was in deep conversation with an ebony and red, attractive hedgehog. He was wearing a black t - shirt and black leather jacket and black baggy trousers. A few chains hing around his waist, like a belt.
They were holding hands.
Next to them was a colbat blue hedgehog, wearing a dark blue t-shirt and denim jacket and jeans. I could feel my heart beating loudly when I saw him, and I could feel my cheeks burn.
Oh crap, I'm blushing! Why am I blushing around some random dude I don't even know?
Cream cleard her throat and they all noticed us. Cream beamed at them 'Ok guys! This is Amy Rose...you know...that girl you wanted me to bring over?'
They smiled at me. The cat closed over her book (it wasn't Twilight!), and the seedrian set down her pencil.
'Hello Amy'. she said, smiling 'I suppose we should introduce ourselves'. She stood up and walked over to me. ' My names Cosmo, Im fourteen'.
She pointed at the cat, 'Thats Blaze, she's fifteen, Thats Rouge, she's sixteen, thats Tails...for obvious reasons! Seriously those tails are weird...no offence Tails...' Tails chuckled 'Cosmo's just jealous because my tails are awsome'.
She folded her arms, and pulled a grumpy face 'I am not!'
Cosmo was trying to sound annoyed, but the gleam in her eyes gave her away. Tails smiled at her and she smiled back.
This went on for a while.
I felt slightly awkward around this big bunch of people, I wish Cosmo would just get on with the introductions.
Cosmo suddenly realised that I was still here, and turned back to me 'Tails is fourteen too, and a total genius!' That complement made him blush 'I'm not that smart Cosmo...' The green seedrian rolled her eyes.
'Tails is so modest...big change from when we were kids!'
She hopped by him, and stopped at the red echidna.
'Then this guy here, is Knuckles...he's sixteen and much nicer then he looks!'
Rouge snorted, as if this was the most ridiculous thing she had ever heard, but she was smiling.
'Then there's his sister Tikal she's thirteen...like Cream!' I was suprised Cream was that old...she seemed very young and immature. Cosmo pointed at the racoon 'Thats Marine!'
Marine's smile was almost as big as her face 'G'day Amy!'
Until now I had never heard an Austrailan accent. It sounds kinda funny ... but nice.
I nodded in reply, my terrible shyness coming on.
I hate being shy. It just makes life that much harder. I'm one of those people who is scared to ask people for help in the shops or someplace.
'She's fourteen, the bee's Charmy and he's thirteen, the silver hedgehog is...well...Silver, He's fifteen, the pretty blonde one is Maria and she is fifteen and dating...' she pointed at the black hedgehog 'Shadow! He's fifteen too! And it's very obvious they're in love, even though neither of them have said so yet. !'
Malia (or something like that...so many names to remember) went slightly pink, but Cosmo didn't notice (or pretended not to...) as she gestured to the colbat hedgehog.
Don't look! Don't look! I told myself, not wanting to risk my cheeks going red again. 'And that's Sonic! He's fifteen!'
She sat back down beside Tails. I risked looking up. My eyes met Sonic's...his cheeks went slightly pink and I could feel my cheeks heating up again.
This was going to be a long lunch break...
