An aura of change was amongst the chattering crowd
of students from Skothamor´s Senior Academy- a few smaller teens were wearing
four-sizes too-big blazers or jumpers, and ties that were hanging off their
necks, but all clothes were pristine and brand-new. They were
the new students from the outside world, who were feeling particularly small in
a big school of big people and big tests. One of the new students was Felix
Blanc- a slightly insecure smart-boy, though with the potential to be popular,
he lacked a lot of social skills and seemed to only have personality and looks
on his side. One boy caught his eye. He was older than himself, and tall,
with long-ish mousy hair that was swept over one eye. His face was narrow, but
as narrow as it needed to be, and he was slightly freckled over his nose. He
was probably about 20, so maybe this was his last year at the school. Clinging
to him was a girl, also a new student. Felix approached the two of them. They
seemed to ignore him, continuing to hug each other. "Uhm,
hello." Felix began awkwardly. The older boy let go of the smaller girl,
who looked like she was about 16.
"Hi! You´re new? I´m Bailey Blanc. Nice to meet you." Bailey offered
his hand clenched in a fist. Smiling, Felix fist-bumped it back. "Hey. My name´s Felix." he glanced nervously at the girl, who
was still clinging onto Bailey.
"Oh, don´t mind her. This is my little sister, Scarlett. We haven´t had
contact with each other for four years, so this is our first....first
time...." his face fell and hugged Scarlett more than before. He let go,
and smiled at her once more. "Well, I´d better be going. Our tutor here is
REALLY grumpy. See you around, Felix. Bye, Scarlett." He turned and left,
a cloud or male companions swarming around him. Only then did Felix finally see
the face of Scarlett.
Her caramel hair was swept back behind her shoulders in soft waves, and
her eyes were dark green and deep. She had dimples either side of her pale
lips. Her skin was clear and olive-coloured, and she made the dull uniform her
own, with dozens of assorted braided bracelets and bands, her grey jumper was
rolled up to her elbows and her tie has some stitches picked out of it so that
she had her own individual pattern. Scarlett stared back at Felix.
"Who are you?" she asked in a confident, perhaps boyish
"I´m Felix Monte."
She raised an eyebrow and smiled. "Felix? As in, Felix the cat?"
she laughed jokingly.
Felix blushed red. "Actually, it’s originally a human’s name! And
isn’t Scarlet a BOY’S name?"
Scarlett’s smile fell from her face. She folded her arms and furrowed her
eyebrows. "Yeah, but when it´s a double T then it´s a girl´s name. And
mine has two T´s. So THERE."
"Does it make any difference?"
"Shut up, blondie."
Great. Now we´re insulting each other´s hair colours, thought Felix.
This isn´t the best way to start off at Senior School.
