Chapter One : Life Purpose.
[Hang on in there , I'm sure everyone will love you like they do here. Already missing you Cassie !] I sighed and closed the text message , I received earlier. Ok , I hope this day doesn't totally suck.
New Salem wasn't really a big town , but their school was enormous and hautaine. Like boarding school in the UK. The only thing that was missing , was preppy uniforms. I grabbed my info , I got in the mail a couple of days earlier. Locker 523 , yeah where is 523. I had no idea I was talking out loud , until a male voice answered
'It's in corridor B , at the end.'
I turned around and saw a very muscled boy standing behind me.
' Thanks , I'm cassie.'
He seemed a little bit cold and distant and said in a cold tone which I was expecting by looking at him.
' I'm nick.' and walked away.
Well isn't he a friendly type. I took his advice and found my locker. These hallways were so long and yet very crowded. How many people are going to this school , anyways. It's like there is no school in an 20 km radius except this one.
I managed to get through the first 4 periods without any bad encounters , but had this strange feeling everyone was avoiding me and deliberately staring at me. I'm sure I was imagining things , there were hundreds of people going to this school. Why should I be so special? I am not . Get over yourself Cassie!
Ha! Lunchtime , I was so starving. On my way out , I accidentally bumped into a girl.
' Oh god , I'm so so sorry!'
' It's nothing , Hi I'm Sally' The girl was kind of small and skinny , had nice facial features.
She seemed also really genuine and nice and open. The opposite of Nick , who seemed so cold and closed.
'I'm Cassie , I'm new here.'
' Yeah I figured , I'm the Class president , so I know these things. Would you like to have lunch with me and my boyfriend Jeffrey , I will tell you everything you need to know about everyone. I'm sorry if everyone seems so distant , but we don't do well with strangers.'
So that explained the behavior of Nick and every one else for that matter.
'Oh I haven't noticed yet' I lied. 'But I would love to have lunch with you guys.'
On the way to their usual table , she explained all I needed to know about which courses are really fun and which are extremely boring , and which teachers are your regular pain in the ass. I was really relieved to have someone like Sally on my first day of school. I didn't feel like an outcast , at all.
When I got down on my seat , I noticed a separate room , with a dozen of kids. It was totally from glass , so everyone could see what they were doing , but it kind of reminded me of a VIP room.
'Who are they and why are they sitting in a separate room?' I asked.
'Well finaly , you asked something about them.'
' Them? , What are they , like royals of the school or something?'
'Yeah something like that.'
'You guys don't really like them , do you?'
I knew it from the moment I asked about the room. Her mood had changed instantly. All of a sudden , happy sally changed in Mr Grumpy Pants.
' We'll no , not ready. As you can tell obviously. It's like they are this very elite club , nobody can enter, only if you live in their street. They don't care about the rest , don't care about the rules. Basicly , they can get away with anything. There are 11 of them , and hundreds of us. But they make us feel like we are the outsiders of the school and not them.'
Wow , she must really hate them , they seem like douchebags.
'Well I don't care for them , I think you two are very nice and I don't need to be in their elite club. And by the way , where is this Royal street ? So that I can avoid their poisonous street' I joked.
Jeffrey and Sally laughed with the lack of humour , I possessed.
' Uhm , Crowhaven Road' I nearly choked when she mentioned the street , Crowhaven road was my street. Fucking Hell. Would she see me differently when she knew my house was there too.
' So where do you live by the way?' she asked.
' Uhm , just on the mainland , nothing special' Ah shit , I lied. Well soon she would know the truth , but not today. I really need her as a friend and her very quiet boyfriend as a friend. After the first signal , I hurried to Math.
Can't be late , can't be late , can't be late . I thought to myself as I ran into the class. Shit I was too late.
' So miss?'
' Blake , Cassie Blake'.
' Well miss Blake , already too late for your first class , don't make a habit out of it please! Sit down.' I felt the blood rush to my face as I walked to the back of the class. I took an empty seat and began to scribble on my notes. When the door opened again , I saw another one who was a little tardy.
'Good afternoon , Mr Conant. Take your seat. Thanks'
OMG why was this teacher so polite , he came 5 minutes later in after I got yelled at. Soon it hit me , this was one of the eleven. One of the elite club , one who didn't care for the rules.
'So people , welcome to a new year of fabulous math. I will announce your homework partners for the rest of the year. You do not change your partner , you will work together. Capiche!'
Oh no , homework partners, well it couldn't be all bad. I was good at math , so this class would be a piece of cake for me.
' Blake with Conant' I heard the teacher say. Conant , wasn't he the boy who came in later? Yeah that was he. I dared to look at my left side where he was seated and nodded shyly. He could be a douchebag , one hell of a handsome douchebag. When he smiled back at me , I swear , I could have fainted in math class.
' Ok people , switch places and get to know your Mathpartner.' Before I could get up , I noticed the boy walking towards my bench.
'Hi , I'm adam , you must be new here.'
' Hi , I'm cassie'. And then the weirdest thing happened. When he touched my hand , I saw this silver cord. It intertwined both our hands . As fast as the cord came , the cord disappeared. But I felt changed , like I found my purpose or something.
So this is the first chapter. This seems a bit the same , but it's only the First chapter. I assure you ,the story will be different , I have a lot of ideas. Review please
