First dia of School
The school sino rang signaling the beginning of the first period. Kids rushing past to get to class so as not to be tardy. Thru all this hustle no one noticed the wondering lost girl in the hallways. 14-year-old Rebecca was born in a very small town on the coast of Australia, before her folks started moving around everywhere.
It was a family of 4(herself, her mom, her dad, and her big brother Andy) that was always happy despite the constant job transfers of they’re dad. It was the typical happy family that you would imagine from those stories and fantasy’s, but as always nothing could ever stay that way. It was rare for a family to have that quality for even a small amount of time. But to have it for a full 9 years was record. So for that nine years Rebecca’s life was almost perfect, but after that nine ano mark things got hard for Rebecca and her family.
Before Rebecca reached the age of 9 and a half her parents where fighting and in separate beds, then separate rooms and finally separate houses. At the age of ten she couldn’t figure it out why her parents had dividido, dividir up but she never did bother asking. Thru the seguinte few years she and Andy had to depend on each other when things got really tough. It was really hard going back and forth between the houses, moms, dads, moms, dads, over and over again. Will this ever end she would think, can it get any worse? No she thought, it won’t and can’t get any worse that having your perfect family torn apart. But she was wrong. It could get worse and it did. Things fell apart even mais when her mom told her that she was moving to Alaska because she got a promotion on her job. Then if that wasn’t enough her mom casually added that her and dad where getting a diverse as well. What!? Shouted Rebecca at the topo, início of her lungs with eyes wide. This can’t be happening, it’s all a bad dream that I will wake up from and everything will be back to normal. But it wasn’t a dream, everything was real and falling apart. After the divorce she and her mom left for Alaska with only the niceties’. You can get new things there! Her mom has said with a smile while packing and off they went to Alaska. Her mom got custody of her but her dad got Andy which came as a shock to Rebecca. Don’t worry Beck, he had said while she watched him pack. , we going to have to cut off all communication or anything. I’ll come and visit you and mom and we can call and text and e-mail. Well they did do all that but it wasn’t as it used to be. No, not at all.
She had been in Alaska for four years now. Even though she still had to transfer schools often cause of her moms job. This was the segundo school this ano that she transferred to. Of course she was used to it por now, she was used to being the outcast, the loner/loser, and oh how she was used to it. As usual that morning she walked in that morning completely confused on where to go. No one even bothered to stop and ask if she needed help or if she was new there. But like I said she was used to it.
Excuse me, someone said behind her making her jump. , are you Rebecca? A…yeah. That’s me. She said trying to collect herself. Oh wow they weren’t kidding when they said you would look younger. Commented the girl almost mais to herself that to Rebecca. Well hi I am your início room teacher Miss Alice, welcome to Gotham acadamy. She said offering a hand to Rebecca. Taking the hand Rebecca studied the woman. She was younger than most teachers, pretty and looked kind. Um…..thanks. I am not quite sure what to do now……so……don’t suppose you would know where I need to go first? Said Rebecca with a bit of uncertainty in her voice. Sure, now let’s see if we can’t get you settled in a bit now. Said Miss Alice looking around. She started to walk tword a door that read Principal Mackey in bold black letters. Well, Rebecca thought to herself silently, this one is new. She began thinking of all the odd names that a bunch of her other school principals had. Walking in, a fairly large man stood welcoming them into the office. Good day, Alice. He said greeting the young teacher. Hello principal Mackey. The teacher said with a nod and a smile. Now……what do we have here? He said examining Rebecca closely. This is Rebecca, and she is a bit lost. Said Miss Alice to the principal. Ah, hello Rebecca. We weren’t sure if you would make it this morning since your mother called and said you where a bit sick. Are you still sick? He said looking down at here expectedly. No. she replied flatly. Ok good to know. He said, his smile returning. Well best head to your fist class. He said.
An hora later, Rebecca was in her assento in class. Everyone was so set on what they needed to do that Rebecca felt out of place. Her mind drifted a bit to her house where her book laid open and ready to be continued with full attention that she usually gave to it. Brinnnnnnnnnnnngggggggg!!!! Rang the bell. Oh no! she thought. I didn’t take notes. The moment the thought hit her head someone handed her a note book. She looked up startled a bit to see a young boy. He was about her age, shorter than most at the school but still taller than her, and with this very dark colored hair.” During class you looked distracted.” He said smiling. Figured you’d need these. A…thanks. Was all she could think of to say? I’m Dick. What about you? He asked looking at her knowingly. What? Oh, Rebecca. I’m a transfer. She said smiling nervously. Yeah kind of figured. The sass kicked in about then. Yeah and what’s that supposed to mean? She said putting her hands on her hips and glaring at him. Nothing, it…you……you looked new that’s all. He said putting up his hands defensibly. Sorry, habit to snap at people. She said taking her hands off her hips retreated. It’s okay. Enjoy the notes. He said turning to leave. And the first kid that talks to me I scare off. How normal! She said to herself. You didn’t scare him. Someone seguinte to her said. Rebecca looked in the direction of the voice to see a girl with red hair standing about a half a foot away. Hi I’m Barbra. She said smiling. Hi. Said Rebecca smiling back. You didn’t scare him either, not a whole lot scares dick. Eccept very large snakes. She said laghing. Ok….. Said Rebecca smiling oddly. Well I’d better get to my seguinte class. She said smiling. Ok see you around. Said Barbra as she left. Wow two people talked to me in the same day. That’s odd. Ooh well might as well not get used to it. seguinte class was math. She looked around to see that many of the kids had looks of fright on their faces as the math teacher got ready for the coming math test. Only a few kids didn’t look fright stricken, a small group por a escrivaninha, mesa hanging out and talking. The kid who lent Rebecca his notes was with them. When he looked over and spotted her he waved her over. Shyly she quietly approached them. Hey, it was Rebecca right? He said once she came over. Yeah, that'd be me. She said nodding. Well Rebecca, this is Jan Amy Elton and jack. He said introducing each of the kids around him. Hi. Rebecca said shyly. This is ceia weird she kept thinking. So you gota a assento yet? Asked dick. No fraid not. Said Rebecca getting mais and mais weirded out por the second. “Fraid” said the girl named Jan. what adorable language. Right there Rebecca had to take every ounce of self control not to narrow her eyes, ice her to the floor, and diss the girl to her face. Even though she was concealing the defense, dick still was able to detect that that didn’t settle very well with her. Come on Jan. don’t be a jerk. Some people like that type of talking. Just like Elton does when he puts his camisa on backwards and inside out. Said dick keeping a straight face but knowing that that would get a comment. Rebecca felt the offence decrease as she began to crack up. Dude! Said Elton looking at dick with an annoyed look. Well anyhow I got an extra assento here. Said dick pointing to the escrivaninha, mesa seguinte to him. Rebecca began to think fast. Oh man! She thought. Sitting seguinte to him accepting notes from him, having invites from him. The first thing she thought was to decline. But something told her to take it. So she did. Yeah thanks a lot she said setting her books down at the desk. As she sat down her note book fell out of her backpack opening as it did. Wow! Said dick as he saw the detail of her notes and the flashes of numbers before she snatched it up again. That was some amazing notes. He said. He had mais to say but the emrassment showed inn her eyes. Oh crud she thought! I can’t have it flying around that I am a major math geek. I’d rather transfer again! Before she could say anything, she saw dick, Jan, Elton, and jack all whispering. Alright class! Said the teacher clapping his hands. We are going to begin our math test. Please keep your eyes on your own work and no speaking to anybody beside you. The teacher began walking around the room. He paused at the front of two giggly girls desks. And there will be NO PASSING NOTES aloud. Is that clear?! Yes sir they managed thru the giggles. He began walking again calling out the remainder of the rules and instructions. He stopped at Rebecca’s desk. And I hope you do well. Not many survive a math test on their first day. He said looking a little frightening. She just nodded. She the felt a hand on her shoulder, it was Amy behind her giving her a smile and an encouraging nod. After the test was passed out than a tense silence came over the room as they all struggled with theyre answers. But Rebecca raced thru the test, she ended up having to reread it over and over again until the others where done. She let her gaze wonder freely settling on dick, silently doing his work. She found herself looking for awhile till he suddenly looked up, right at her. Her head shot down and almost gave her whiplash and a head ach from almost hitting her head on her desk. When they all were finished Rebecca let out a long sigh and slunk down in her chair, avoiding the looks from dick like the plague. The teacher stopped at every mesa, tabela checking each test while a worried student sat beneth him shaking in fear. The teacher was astonished when he looked at Rebecca’s test.3 segundos of astonishment then 2 for dignity regainment. Well miss Rebecca it appears that you where able to survive this round. Well done, he said turning his back to her. When the school dia ended Rebecca tried to get out of the place as fast as she could. But on her was out she acedently froze the ground beneth her causeing her to fall into someone’s arms. The catcher helped her to her feet while she tried to collect herself only to have herself go into shock when she saw it was dick that had caught her. Oh crud! She thought, where did he come from? Um sorry she said blushing. No problem. She then bent down and tried to collect herself and her books lying at his feet. Oh cruuuuuuuuuuud! She thought again as she saw ice climb up his shoose. She avoided looking up as she put her hands on his shoes to melt it. Mabey he wont notice she thought. But once she got all her books she could tell he noticed as he smiled oddly at her. She then nodded cowardly and ran hightailing it to her house. Little did she realize that the ice whent further that his shoes. All dick could think was cold and did she do that? She said bye to his friends and got into the limo to go back to the mansion. Wow, does the league know about her. He thought to himself smiling almost.
