Hey peoples this is my first solo fanfiction so i hope you like it!
"Leya hurry up and get ready or you'll be late for school!"
"Uhh…Dad…" I mumbled into my pillow, "5 more minutes…" I was peacefully asleep having a nice dream about…something. I don't really remember what it was about; all I know is that it involved a 10-foot nylon rope, a bucket of ice, and an elephant. I know weird right? Anyway I was about to continue that strange dream until I was rudely interrupted by the voice of my dad entering my room.
"Come on Leya, you need to get up." I heard him say.
"I don't wanna." I wined, burying my face deeper into my insanely soft pillow.
"Look, I know you don't like going to that school, but you have to." He says sitting on the edge of my bed, "In case you didn't know it's the law."
"Dad, you wanna to know why I don't want to go?" I asked, propping myself on my elbows facing him, "It's 'cuz I'm pretty much a social outcast, my best friend in the whole world is half way across Chicago and to top it off, one of Alexa's old lackeys goes there and she does nothing but torment me!" I yelled. A sad expression appears on his face and he sighs.
"I know you and Alexa had your…differences but you shouldn't let her or her 'lackeys' get the best of you. You need to be to bigger person and stay out of trouble. I'm tired of getting calls from the principle every time you get into a fight with Sierra." Dad says with a small smile. "Plus, I just found out a few minutes ago that there's a special surprise for you at school."
"Really? What is it?" I asked excitedly sitting up in my bed my defiant mood gone. He got up off my bed and made his way towards the door.
"Sorry chica. If you want to know I suggest you get your butt up and get ready." He said exiting the room and closing the door behind him. In three seconds flat I jumped out of bed and ran into my bathroom.
After a quick shower and grooming session, I ran out of my bathroom, but not before checking myself in the mirror. Clad in a white shirt with a dragon stencil design down the right side, a jean jacket over that, boot-cut jeans and white tennis shoes I looked myself over and decided I looked ok. I then ran down the stairs of my two-story house, through the living room to grab my bag, and into the kitchen all while tying my long brown hair into a neat ponytail.
"Ok Dad I'm ready now. What's the surprise?" I asked my dad who was enjoying a bagel.
"I'm not supposed to tell you." He simply states.
"Sorry but I promised I wouldn't." He replies, "Grab a bagel and let me take you to school. You've all ready miss the bus." I roll my eyes in annoyance but agree. I grab my bagel and he grabs his keys and we both head out to the car.
The drive to Kenwood Academy was uneventful but little did I know, the surprise I got in homeroom wouldn't be the last for a long while.
