Prologue: Thunder

"The day we met was like a hit-and-run
And I, still taste it on my tongue."

It's the first day of school, and I'm not too excited about it. You probably already know the story. Campbell Saunders is dead. I didn't cry when I found out. Hell, I was mad when I found out. I wasn't mad at Mr. Simpson or at Zig. I wasn't mad at myself. I was mad at Cam!

I did cry, the first week of summer. Cam and I planned to do a lot over the summer. We were supposed to watch movies together, eat dinner together, and just have fun, and be happy. We didn't do any of that, because he's dead.

"Maya, come on, it's time for you to get out of the car." I don't want to be here, but my dad told me I needed to go back to school. It's not like I missed school, I just didn't do much over the summer.

I sighed as I got out of the car. I bit my lower lip as I shut the door, holding my bag close, and slowly walked up the steps of Degrassi. Here we go.

I walked down the hall, and checked my phone to see a text from Tori. Tristan & I are in the caf. Come on. I turned down the hall, seeing the doors to the cafeteria. I walked in, seeing some people sitting around, and a few groups laughing and catching up. I sighed, finding Tori and Tristan.

Tori was still the same, but more fashionable. She had gotten a new wardrobe, which was very obvious. She had a coffee cup in her hand, and so did Tristan. "Good morning, Maya Matlin!" I took a breath, sitting down. "How are you doing?" Tori asked, a serious tone in her voice.

How did she think I was feeling? I feel like shit. I feel so bad because Cam is gone and I can't do anything about it. "I'm doing fine." I lied. Suddenly, I heard girls whispering, talking loudly, and shifting around. The three of us turned towards the entrance, and the doors opened. The Ice Hounds.

I held my breath for a moment, before sighing. Cam. My stomach felt sick a moment after they walked in, because I saw the guy in the front, presumably the Captain.
