MYSTIC: chapter 1: new school, new life
"It´s okay," I told myself. "New school, new life, new town, new friends... And new problems." The leaves swirled all around me as I walked to school in the coldest autumn I had ever seen. The more I tried to re-assure myself , the more I doubted everything I had said. This was my third school this year. At least mum said this move was the last. She had looked me in the eye this morning, and told me that everyone would love me, just like when I was younger, before my dad left. I guessed she was right. Everywhere I go people fell head over heels for me, saying I´m gorgeous and trying to win me. I suppose I am quite pretty, with my naturally tanned skin and long black flowing hair.
They say I look more like someone from Hawaii than Transylvania , and they´re probably right. I always got teased about this too, and I kept being called a vampire, among other things.
"Hey, are you new here?" Called a voice from behind me. I spun round quickly, and came face to face with a boy. His strawberry blonde hair fell just above his left eye, so he had to keep flicking it away. I blushed scarlet.
"Um, yeah, I´m Danni," I said, avoiding all eye contact.
"We´ll I´m Ashton, but you can call me Ash, everyone does," he said with a laugh. "So,what tutor group are you in?" Ash asked
"Um, I think I´m in Z4."
"Wow, no way! I´m in Z4 too!"
"Really?! Well it will be nice to start the term knowing someone, for once..." I said.
"Okay class, today we have a new student. Danni, please come up to the front."
No one said a word, my chair creaked impossibly loud as I got up. At the front, I turned around to stare at the sea of faces. I caught Ash´s eye, and he smiled at me.
"So Danni, where are you from?" Asked my teacher, Ms. Lawton.
"I´m from Transylvania." I said. Immediately the guy next to Ash did a Dracula impression, and received a kick in the shins from Ash. So, it´s still the same as before, but now I have a friend.
At lunch, Ash invited me to sit with him and his freinds at lunch. From what I can gather Ash is pretty popular, as there is a whole crowd around him. I can see the boy from tutor who did his impression of Dracula, who I am told is called Kyle, and another boy from my geography class called Ryan. I can also see a tall blonde girl from my art class called Lucy, and there is also one other girl, not as tall with long hair, the same colour as Ash´s, so I´m guessing their related somehow. They are all gorgeous, and they are all staring at me as I follow Ash to the hill where they´re sitting.
