Chapter I: Smile
Bah first day at new school and that too in the final year of middle school. Ridiculous. Why did I have to get transferred?? Why did my dad have to get a new job?? Stupid, complicated adults. Well first days can get long, weird and yes, painful as well, so I kept my fingers crossed as much as I could and let all the good times I had a while back fade. I knew I had to start over and no, I didn’t want to. But I had to do it for my parents.
But yeah the new school sure seemed all nice and cozy, a gihugic arch, black gates, a couple neat hedges and clusters of buildings painted brown and white( yep whoever painted this place surely must have been colorblind). Well I did manage to find my class without getting lost or kidnapped and took a deep breath and walked in.
As per protocol every one stared at me as if I just walked right out some random manhole biting at a doughnut. Well I was just glad nobody mocked or started taking notes and stuff as if I were some alien, which was protocol as well. I picked a nice, clean desk at the very back and sat down. Just then a guy from the other end shouted, "Welcome aboard, Barbie!!" and he and his bunch of goons started laughing. True I do like their songs but I've never been a Barbie fan( Mayb I am, but that really isn’t the point here), so I guessed my pink glasses had triggered his epilepsy or something.( yep I have pink glasses, so whut??) they walked up to me and started laser-eyeing me. They guy who made the very funny comment a while ago was giving me the 'I'mGrandSmackDaddyaroundhere' look when I asked him, “What’s itching your wrinkled nose??I wear whatever I want, so you can go jump in a well for all I care". Then came a bunch of oohs and ahhs and clearly the guy seemed ticked. Sure he was a tad bit bigger than me and bulkier, but I could still take him, I was deciding between a standard foot to groin and a sweep when this gihugic friend on his popped out of thin nowhere and made my decision for me. So I backed off and before anything much happened the teach came in and I was left happily ever after at least for the first lesson.
Well I hardly ever paid any attention at all to the rest of the class during the day, I just kept as composed as I could be. But I hadn’t made even one friend which was highly unlike me, because back in my previous school, I knew all the kids in the entire grade. The lessons seemed to pass by very quickly (like a couple million centuries or so) and finally came lunch.
Well I was just happily making my way to the cafe,when I bumped into a girl carrying a pile of books and causing her to drop all of them. I was considering walking right past but I found myself piling the books up neatly and handing them to her. I couldn’t really see her face because it was covered by her hair, well I was done with the books so I mouthed a sorry and was just about to disappear, when she pulled her hair back and revealed her face. God, I was stunned, I could have sworn I saw some sort of aura around her, she was glowing. I soon got lost in her face, when I realized I had been staring, so I face palmed and apologized. She smiled meekly, blushed and walked away. But me, I stayed. All of a sudden I had things more important than world domination and lunch to think about, so I remained staring at the wall. And no I have never been into girls, I had much better things to do, but now, I felt strangely attracted to this girl. I tried to clear my head and prepared to walk off back to class when she entered my mind again, so I spent the rest of recess day dreaming.
Well I came to class late thanks to all my day dreaming and my entire class stared at me as usual so I tried not to look around too much and sat down. Well it was math and yah I can do math, 1+1=2 right? easy peasy. I did try to pay attention (yes to the teacher and not the girl) but unfortunately she seemed to drag me away every time I tried. Well I just sat smiling into space dreaming, when some random guy thought I was smiling at him and looked at me shyly. Another facepalm," Ah hell", completely embarrassed, I looked in the other direction when I saw the same girl from lunch sitting to my left. She gave me that same smile that seemed to slow the world around me and I was hopelessly lost again. Just then the teach shouted, " I can sure arrange a table and a candle light dinner for you two!" she giggled and I at the peak of embarrassment went back to staring at my text with my mind so full of her.
Well after class I summoned my guts and went up to her and said Hi. She returned it politely and continued packing her bag. I said, " Umm my name's Kaz, whuts yours??"
" Kaz..I've never heard that name anywhere before. Well I'm Tahlia, nice to meet you."
" Umm yep I know I hav a very weird name and it sure fits me, me being very weird and girly. Nice to meet you too, Tahlia."
" Oh no Kaz, I kind of like your name, it’s different. And no you’re not weird...” She smiled leaving me starstruck yet again." well would you like to walk home together?? We live in the same block you know...”
"Thank you" I felt my cheeks turn warm, but I can’t really blush because I have a deeply colored tan, thank god."We live on the same block?? Looks like I sure know my neighborhood very well, fail."
She laughed, her hair streaming across her face again as we walked out the gihugic main door.
