What is today? Thursday, no I don't like that day. I like Friday. I think I do. Wait… who am I? What am I? I am not a cat am I? No! She thinks. She gets up and looks around, she was sitting on an orange bench and it clearly had just rained because everything was wet. She was dry though. She frantically walks around observing the city around her. There were some pretty weird people walking around, because when they saw her they went the other direction or twitched. At least all the people over the age of thirty. She starts walking briskly, then running, then just sprinting, then finally as fast as she could was faster than most of the cars driving in the street, but could go in a straight line.
She then stopped at the big red sign that read "STOP". She held on to the sign, until she caught her breath. What is going on? I don't remember. What is that, is that the bench?
She saw the orange bench she woke up on. She sat down there again and looked across the street. HiSkool, that is not right. Across the street was a school, but looked run-down. She could see students walking out of it. What do I know? I know that this is a city, and that is a school, I don't know who I am… let me find a mirror, or glass. She turns around, they're apartments and windows. I now know that I have…white hair? And white skin? She feels her long white hair. The white hair went all the way down to her hips. It was actually a crisp shade of grey, with a little highlight of white. If my hair was normal than it would be platinum blonde hair with highlights of brown. I think. She stare at her skin it was pale. Apparently I don't get any sun. She looked down at herself and saw she was wearing a silk black dress with lace and a white ribbon around the waist with a big bow in the back. It was a little torn up and worn, but besides that it was beautiful. I am a girl. I need a name. My name… What is a name I like? I like May.
May then walked toward the school and saw that the students didn't seem to care like the middle-aged people on the street. In fact most of them stopped and stared at her then smiled. I guess I am pretty. I am getting sick of all the unknown statements I am thinking. I'll stop then. She walks around then after awhile two or three boys were following her. She turns around and they stop like a deer in headlights, frightened and unsure of what to do. May turns around like she saw nothing and knows nothing, because she doesn't. Then she walks right into a woman with standing under a large umbrella, dress completely in black, and grey hair tied up in a bun with a few strands hanging out.
"Oh, I am so very sorry." May said, those are the first words she ever spoke. And spoke them well, she gave a little curtsy, and placed her right hand over her heart. The woman, who looked older than thirty looked at May and didn't turn away. She bent down and stared at her, May withdrew from her stare.
"I am Miss Bitters, principal of this institution, who might you be young pest?" She said
"I am May." She said while standing straighter.
"I know you do not have a home, or family, let alone a school. And I also know that you will not have a desire for any pests that you may call friends. So let me point you in the direction of a proper school, of such a fine, perfect, beautiful lady such as yourself, May." She said that without missing one beat, or any expression. "Answer me, May"
"Yes, please show me the proper school."
"Come with me, now."
May followed the unattractive woman into the run-down school. It was called HiSkool. It should have a space in between there, and it should be High School. Everyone was still leaving but few stayed behind. Miss Bitters led her to a room that read "Detention" on the door. Four boys and one girl were in the room. All the guys' faces lit up when she walked in, like they were expecting her or something.
"Sit here, now" She said before she left "I have a meeting with the principal, I'll be back."
May sat there feeling awkward. And could see everyone (except the girl who was glued to her video game) was watching her. The chair she sat at was cold and the desk was marked with words like "I am in the Matrix" "Eat your own face" "Abnormal activity" ECT. Her finger outlined the markings delicately especially the "In science, we screw the world." Then a boy behind her got up and sat at the desk next to her.
He wore a black trench coat, a blue shirt with a face on it and had a really long scythe like black hair. He then said "Hey, I uh… well I use to sit there…and the "In science," line me, um… I etched that out." He stumbled on his words and seemed very shy, he also had glasses and a little bit of a big head, which was looking down.
"Cool that must've taken a long time. I am also a lover of science." I know that because the laws of motion and string theory thrill me and fascinating.
"Really? I know lots of people hate science."
"Why? Science is the very thing that this world is made up of. But then again the unknown isn't built on the foundation of science until it is discovered so that must be what they hate…" May knew she said too much. I shouldn't draw attention to myself! From this point on you shall remain silent and un-weird.
"I am a scientist of the unknown and supernatural, you know, but everything is pure scientific fact, even the mystery is made up of logic because-"
"No!" May stood up and stared straight at him "The unknown and the mystery is something we do not understand nor comprehend so you are just jumping to conclusions when you say "everything is pure scientific fact" because the reality of this world we have come to know may or may not be exactly what it seems. Think of this a color blind man walks into a red room, when he is asked what color the room is he says gray, but everyone else knows it is red, so his reality is gray, while others is red. Consider we are all color blind and we see the world as gray but it is not because it is, in fact, red. We would never know because that is not what we perceive. So how do you know that everything is "Factual" when you yourself have not seen everything? For example you have never seen me!" may sat back down with her arms crossed. Damn It! Not only did I cause attention but I revealed my theory of human false perception… Wait… I remember something! I remember the theory! Oh my god! I remember!
On the outside May was pissed on the inside she was beaming. She didn't even notice everyone else in that room. Then the boy got up stood in front of her with his face all red and held out his hand.
"Sorry, um…I'm Dib."
"I am May. Go away now."
Just as she said that she notice a green boy near the window looking at her, not in amazement or with suspicion like everyone else but was just looking at her. He had black hair that was slicked back and light purple eyes. His head was leaning on his hand on the desk he was sitting at and was looking at her out of the corner of his purple eyes.
