I was optimistic as I walked in through the classroom doors. Perhaps this would be the term when everything changed, and I didn't feel like an outcast anymore. Perhaps this time people would actually want to talk to me.

The little voice in my head was saying you think that every Monday

That was true, but hey, a little optimism couldn't hurt.

It took me a while to notice the new girls, because they were surrounded by practically the whole class, but once I did, I couldn't take my eyes off them. Apparently, no one else could either.

The first one to attract my attention was tall, taller even than me, and quite definitely the most beautiful person I had ever seen. She had a perfect figure, and long golden blonde hair that waved down her back like something from a L'Oreal ad. In fact, all of her looked like something out of Vogue. There went my self-esteem.

The other girl was a complete opposite. She was tiny, nearly as small as Jessica, who had some kind of bone disease. Her hair was jet black and spiky, although I couldn't detect any gel. On first glance, she looked nothing like the other girl, but there were similarities. They were both pale, not just white; there skin practically glowed. They had the same colour eyes as well; golden brown. It was unusual colouring. And of course, they were both incredibly beautiful.

Fantastic.
