'The truth shall make you free, but first it shall make you angry.' - Anonymous

As the fourteen year old brunette slept, snuggled into her bed, a shadow creeped up to her. It smirked, pulling out a blow horn and placing it next to the sleeping girl's ear. It plugged one of it's ears with it's finger, licked it's lips, and shouted into the object; "TIA!! GET UP!!" Tia's brother, Mare, smirked, as the sleeping girl jumped out of bed, at least 3 feet high into the air, and screaming at the top of her lungs. As she landed back on her bed, Mare quickly ran for it, knowing if he stayed any longer, he would die.

"Mare! I'm going to kill you!" Tia screamed, running out of the room after her older brother. Mare laughed as he ran past their mother in the kitchen. He quickly dodged as Tia lunged at him, missing.

"Tia! Mare! What, on all that is magic and good, are you two doing?" their mother, Lucinda, demanded. But, both ignored their mother and keeped on running. Mare ran out of the kitchen and back up stairs, almost running into their father in the process.

"Mare! Stop running!" Koeh, their father, yelled at him. As he turned back around, coffee in his hand, heading towards the kitchen, he was almost got run over by Tia, but, luckily, she dodged and ran up stairs, after her brother.

"Great, fighting. What a wonderful way to start the morning in the mortal world," their father mumbled, as he walked into the kitchen.

As Tia was just about to tackle Mare, he quickly ran into his room, slamming the door, and locking it; he fell to the ground laughing. Tia growled.

"You can't stay in there forever! You have to go to school sometime!" Tia yelled, pounding on the door.

"Well, so do you! And, you might want to hurry up and get dressed, by the way!" Mare yelled from the other side of the door. Tia huffed and stomped back to her room, but, freaked when she saw what time it was. She quickly got ready, grabbed her backpack, and ran out of her bedroom.

As Tia ran into the kitchen, grabbing a piece of toast, then running for the front door, she was blocked by her mother.

"Remember, Tia. This isn't the magical realm, so that means, no using magic, no bringing Merlin to school for show and tell." Lucinda was about to continue, but noticed Tia had her broom in her hand. "And, no flying on your broom!" The broom bended down, sad.

"Aww. But, how am I going to get to school on time if I can't fly there?" Tia asked, letting her broom go, letting it fly back to it's place near the front door. Lucinda picked up some roller skates and a helmet and gave them to Tia.

"By skating there," her mother pressed. Tia sighed, quickly putting them on. She then got up and went out the door.

"Remember what I said, Tia!" her mother yelled, as she skated as fast as she could away from the house.

As Tia approached her new school, she stopped. She felt a chill go down her spine, and she quickly sniffed the air. Dragon, Tia thought, her eyes narrowing. She looked around her, but, when she sniffed the air again, she smelled it was behind her. But, as soon as she was about to turn around, she heard someone yelling.

"Out of the way!" Then, as she turned around, someone ran smack into her; her, and the person that ran into her, falling to the floor. As Tia lay there, with the person still on top of her, a couple of people stopped on their skate boards and walked over to them.

"Jakie! Look what you did! Didn' I tell you to watch where you were goin'?" yelled someone next to them. Tia opened her eyes to see an Asian kid on top of her, getting help up from an African American girl. He scratched the back of his head.

"Sorry," he admitted. Once he was up, he held out his hand to help Tia up. Tia glared at him, mad that he had ran into her. Then, she realized something. She sniffed the air again, and, then, she knew for sure. The boy in front of her was a dragon. A horrible, scary, dragon. Tia glared at him hard and smacked his hand away. She got up on her own, giving the kid one more glare, and then skating off.

"What was that about?" Trixie asked, a bit annoyed that she did that.

"Maybe it's my breath?" Jake breathed into his hand and smelled.

"Isn't it obvious?" Spud said, as if they asked the most stupidest question ever. "What?" Jake asked.

"She doesn't like you," Spud said, rolling his eyes, then started to play with his yo-yo.

Tia closed the door to her new locker. She was late, of course, to her first period, because she had to check into the front office and get her schedule. The hallway was completely empty now, besides her. With her free hand, she patted her head, making sure her ears weren't visible. Her long brown hair was in a loose pony tail, poofing her hair up a bit, making sure you couldn't see her long, pointy ears. She sighed and started walking to her first period class. Her schedule said her first period class was science, one of her favorite subjects. She hurried off to room 1-389.

As she opened the door to the classroom, every head turned to stare at her; she stared back.

"Hello, welcome to science class. You must be the new student, Tia Zinnia?" the teacher asked. Tia nodded. The teacher, Mr. Mills, which it said on the board, looked around the room for a place for Tia to sit. Tia looked around the room too, looking at all the unfamiliar faces. But, then she saw something familiar, something she didn't want to see. It's the dragon, Tia thought, staring at him.

"Jake, do you have a partner?" Mr. Mills asked.

"Yeah, but she's out today," Jake explained, hoping not to get stuck with the new kid.

"Okay, Tia, your partner will be with Mr. Long here," Mr. Mills smiled.

"What?! But-"

"Come now, I'm sure Mr. Long doesn't bit." Tia slumped, walking slowly over to her seat. She placed her books on the counter and sat down on the stool.

"Okay, class. Today we will be working with chemicals. Everyone put on your safety glass and gloves." As the teacher continued to talk, Tia tried to get as far away from her partner as possible. She keeped giving him glances, keeping an eye on him. When Jake realized Tia was glaring at him, he gave her a weird look.

"What's your problem, yo?" He whispered.

"You, dragon boy," Tia whispered back, still glaring at him. Jake's mouth stood open for a second, shocked at what she said.

"What did you just say?!" Tia was about to answer, but then she realized that everyone was putting on their gloves and safety goggles. Jake and Tia did the same.

"Okay, next..." Again, as Tia was listening to Mr. Mills instructions, Jake spoke.

"Look, I don't know what you meant by 'dragon boy', maybe you should go to the nurse," Jake commented. Tia glared at him, not responding for a few seconds, thinking of what to say to what he said. Finally, she replied.

"You look, dragon boy, I know you're a dragon. Don't even try to hide it," Tia whispered.

"But, how-"

"Mr. Long, Ms. Zinnia. Would you both stop the talking and do your assignment," Mr. Mills said, standing in front of their table.

"Yes, sir," Jake and Tia said. Tia and Jake worked quickly and silently, preparing for their chemical assignment. Jake and Tia would give each other a glare every few seconds; Jake now considering her an enemy. Soon, everyone was pouring different chemicals into a large test tube.

"Which chemicals do we mix?" Jake asked, holding a tube of blue, bubbling liquid.

"How am I suppose to know? You keeped on talking and distracting me while I was trying to listen." Jake glared at her, Tia glared back. Finally, Jake just dumped the blue liquid into the clear liquid. Suddenly, a sizzling sound came from the test tube. Both Tia and Jake got closer to see what was happening and quickly regretted it as it exploded in their face.

The whole class turned to see what the noise was about, then, after seeing Tia and Jake covered in blue goo, started laughing.

"Mr. Long! Ms. Zinnia! Hallway! Now!" Mr. Mills yelled, pointing to the door, then putting his hands on his hips. "I will talk to you both in a minute." Both Jake and Tia slimmed their way to the door, opened it, and went into the hallway.

"This is all your fault, dragon boy! If you hadn't poured that stuff in, we wouldn't be covered in this blue slim!" Tia hissed, trying to dust some of it off; but failing.

"This is your fault, too, yo! We're partners, which means we work together!" Jake spat back, annoyed that she was pinning the blame on him and him only. Tia just huffed and leaned on the wall, still trying to get the slim off. She was not in the mood to be yelled at by a dragon, especially one who wears too much hair gel.

They stood there for a few minutes, silent; both pissed at the other.

"Okay, maybe I shouldn't have poured that in the clear stuff, I'm sorry," Jake admitted, frowning. Tia cocked an eye brow. She didn't expect him to say he was sorry, though, she hoped that he didn't expect her to say she was sorry back, because she wasn't.

"Yeah. That's what I thought," Tia mumbled, then thinking that wasn't such a nice thing to say.

"Excuse me? I admitted I was wrong, now you admit you were wrong," Jake demanded. Tia crossed her hands.

"Why should I? It was all your fault in the first place!"

"No, it wasn't!"

"Yes, it was! You even admitted it was!"

"I only did that so you would admit you were at fault, too!"

"Well, I wasn't, dragon boy!"

"Will you stop calling me that!"

"No!" By this time, both were yelling.

"Yes! Because, I'm not a dragon! You just need therapy!" Tia glared at him. She quickly grabbed his jacket, jerking him forward, making sure him and her were face to face.

"I'm not crazy! You're just stupid, not knowing when to admit that your a dragon, after you know perfectly well that I know!" Tia yelled. Tia let Jake go when the classroom door opened and Mr. Mills came out.

"What's with all the yelling from out here?!" Mr. Mills shouted. "We could hear both of you from inside the classroom!" Jake's eyes stood wide open.

"H-How much did you hear?" Jake asked, afraid that everyone heard about him being a dragon.

"We couldn't understand a single word you two were screaming! But, both of you are getting a month of detention!" Mr. Mills glared at them both, before letting them back into the class, then giving both of them slips for detention.

"Aww man."

--

"Urg! I can't believe I got one month of detention! It wasn't even my fault!" Jake complained to his two best friends, Trixie and Spud. Trixie shook her head.

"Well, you did cover the girl in blue slim, Jakie," Trixie commented.

"And, how does she know you're a dragon?" Spud asked, not totally paying attention.

"I'm not sure, but, I have to keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn't tell anyone."

"Who's she going to tell, Jakie? She's a new kid! Plus, who would believe that?"

"You don't think she could be one of the Hunts Clan, do you?" Spud asked. Jake and Trixie looked at each other, confused how smart Spud was right then.

"I don't know. Maybe. Just help me keep an eye on her for awhile, okay?" Jake pleaded.

Tia skated up to her house, taking her skates off at the stairs. She picked her roller blades up and walked through the front door. She was late coming home, because of getting detention today. As she placed her skates near the front door, she was welcomed back with a noogie from her brother. She quickly pushed him off and glared at him.

"Why're you home so late? Detention on the first day, I see," Mare smirked.

"That's none of your business!" Tia said, stomping up the stairs, up to her room. Once she was in her bedroom, she swung her backpack around and dropped it on the bed.

"I can't believe I have homework on my first day of school..." Tia mumbled to her self. She heard a knock one her door.

"Come in!" Tia yelled, sitting on her bed. Her father opened the door, giving Tia a smile.

"Hey dad!" Tia smiled back, happy it wasn't her mom or Mare.

"The school called. You got detention on the first day of school, in the mortal realm?" Her father asked, looking tired.

"Yeah...But I can explain! You see there was this dragon-"

"Dragon?"

"Yeah, this dragon at school and-"

"Tia, what have me and your mother told you about dragons? They are good people. They won't hurt you. They are the magical worlds protectors." Her father and mother have tried to tell her this so many times.

"Yeah, right," Tia murmured.

"Excuse me?"

"Nothing!" Koeh cocked an eye brow, before smiling at his oldest daughter.

"Are you still having those dreams? Ever since you lost your powers-"

"Dad, I didn't lose my powers! I still have the powers I did back then. It's just...I can't learn any new spells...But, I'm just a late bloomer!...That's what mom keeps telling me, anyway..." Tia said, looking down, sad. Her father picked her head up.

"I'm sure your mother is correct." He smiled before leaving.

Tia sighed, looking at her backpack. I hate homework, Tia thought. Just then, she heard another knock at her door.

"Come in?" Lue, her younger sister, stuck her head into the room.

"Tia? Mom said you had the pixie dust in your closet? She needs it for a potion," Lue said, smiling. Tia pointed to the closet. Lue ran over to it, leaving the door open. Then, their cat, Merlin, walked in on all fours. As Lue looked through the closet looking for the pixie dust, Merlin jumped on to Tia's bed; Tia scratching him on the head, then on the chin. He purred. Lue turned around to see what the noise was from, then saw that it was just the cat.

"Don't forget, Tia. Mom said that training it tomorrow, right after school," Lue said, finally finding the pixie dust. Tia knew she would have to get out of detention some how.

"Yeah, I know."
