Chapter 1: Visions
She was a young teenager with long, black hair that flowed to the middle of her back. Most people didn't know it, but Raven Baxter had a secret gift. She could catch glimpses of the future. These glimpses came randomly. Sometimes they were beneficial, but the majority of the 'visions', as they were called, only landed her into a sticky situation. But, with the help of her friends, Raven gets by.
Raven Baxter walked slowly and alone to her locker near the end of the hallway of Bayside High School. She dialed in the combination and retrieved her books for her upcoming classes: Calculus and English. As Raven closed her locker gently, she closed her eyes and took in a deep breath.
"They'll pass…" Raven whispered to herself.
"Hey, Rae!" Raven's best friend, Chelsea Daniels, said perkily out of nowhere.
Raven jumped back and her eyes snapped open, then let out a sigh of relief that it was only Chelsea.
"Gosh," Raven said, fixing her hair, "don't scare me like that, Chelsea."
Chelsea Daniels was about the same height as her friend, Raven. She had fair skin and wavy red hair. Chelsea was usually known for being air-headed and her slow reactions to things.
"What do you mean? I just said hi." Chelsea said with a giggle, "I mean, how can 'hi' be scary?"
Raven narrowed her eyes and shook her head, mouthing the word 'what?' "Not that, Chelsea," Raven said. "I mean suddenly appearing next to me without warning."
"Ah…" Chelsea replied. "So, are you excited for the Grad Nite trip to Disneyland?"
"I don't know, Chelsea," Raven answered, "I'm not so sure if I want to go anymore."
There was silence for a moment.
"I know you're still upset about Eddie moving to Washington, so am I," Chelsea said quietly. Eddie Thomas was another of Raven and Chelsea's friends. He had moved to Washington State earlier in the year, leaving Raven in a cloud of depression.
"I know, Chelsea," Raven replied, "but I don't think it would be right to go on a trip somewhere without him. Besides, it just wouldn't be the same without him."
"Well," Chelsea started, "alright then, but you'll be missing out on the major event of the senior year!"
"And so will Eddie…" Raven said under her breath.
Raven paused, turned her head, and gazed off into space. She was having a vision.
Raven and Chelsea stepped off the charter bus and looked around.
"Woo!" Chelsea shouted as she saw the sign for the resort.
Raven turned her head to the far right. "Eddie?" she whispered. "Eddie!"
Raven's vision ends.
"Actually, his school might go, too." Chelsea reassured her as she was in the middle of her vision, "Washington isn't that far away."
Raven thought for a second after she came out of her trance.
"My gosh," she said quietly, "You're right! I'm going."
"All right!" Chelsea said excitedly. "It's going to be so much fun!"
The bell then rang. Everyone scattered as they headed for class, and Raven and Chelsea shared a friendly hug.
"See you at lunch!" Chelsea called to Raven as they went separate ways.
And all Raven could think about for the rest of the day was Eddie.
