The corridors were empty as I passed them, class had already started and Annabel kindly decided to ditch me as soon as we arrived.
I walked down the deserted halls of my new school. Luckily there was a tour day before you started the actual classes.
My guide, some old bat named Mrs Wemolohtrab went ON AND ON about the history of this school and how lucky they are to have me- you know, because my dad funds a large part of the school they think he'll increase the cash if they kiss my ass (heh that rhymed...cash and ass? okay maybe not).
Unlike my old school, the students at Thames wore puke inducing uniforms which consisted of a black and red plaid skirt with the same coloured tie and a black blazer that had the schools coat of arms sewn on. What is this? A prison camp?
"Und here is your room," Wenolohtrab informed me in her thick accent. Lost in thought I didn't realise that we had already arrived at my dorm.
I stared at the large whitewashed room. It consisted of four beds and a side table next to each of them, a large en suite was connected to the room and on top of one bed lay a ton of suitcases which I instantly recognised as mine.
"Thanks," I replied curtly, closing the door before she starts on the history of god knows what.
I walked over to my luggage and decided to spend the rest o my time organising my stuff.
About half an hour later I had finished sorting out all my clothes into my cupboard sized locker and was sitting on my bed playing angry birds when I heard the door click open. I looked up to see three girls chatting and giggling about something- of course they stopped as soon as their eyes landed on me.
"Who are you?" the fiery redhead asked eyeing me up and down.
"Lucy don't be do rude!" hissed the brunette next to her, then her gaze fell on all the suitcases on my bed.
"Don't mind Lucy- she's just crazy, hey I'm Lola," said a small black haired girl.
"Hi I'm Daniella, your new roommate...I think," I forced a smile. God my roommates are such dorks.
"Awesome! I'll call you Ella," Lucy decided.
"No you won't," I snapped without thinking... "I mean I would prefer it if you called me Dani," I said more politely this time.
Lucy shrugged, "Whatever floats your boat,"
"Hello, I'm Allison," introduced the brunette, she seemed really old fashioned with her big backpack and square rimmed glasses.
I smiled back, "Hiya," I said just for formalities sake, after all I at least needed some allies in this hell hole.
"So are you guys going to the cafeteria now?" I asked.
"Nope, scholarship students have extra credit- we have our lunch an hour late," said Lola.
"Except Wednesdays," Allison added.
"Oh," Was my brilliant response.
"Don't worry, the cafeteria's just down the hall and to the right," Allison said after she saw my confused face.
The three girls took their books and went out of the room for their nerd class.
I walked in to the dining hall.
The uniform Wemolohtrab gave me belonged in the 18th century so I had made a few adjustments to it.
Now that I compared my attire to other peoples, it didn't seem so bad. Although my skirt was above my knees and I was wearing black heels instead of school shoes- I have to say, I looked good. ;)
As I stood in line for my food I caught Annabel glaring at me from the corner of my eye.
What was her problem anyway? I thought as I took in all the dishes on display.
If there was one thing that could make me happy right now- it was food. My love for food was the only thing that hadn't changed after the... accident. As far as I'm concerned, food is joy.
I settled on a very delicious looking hamburger with a side of salad and juice. The food in my old school sucked big time so I was glad that Thames had at least some good points about it.
After paying for my food I walked towards an empty table near the back of the hall. I tried to lay low but even I wasn't stupid enough to not notice all the eyes that were in me.
I sat down looking away from everyone else and was just about to take a bite of my hamburger when I felt a tap on my shoulder.
I turned to face the presence behind me and narrowed my eyes,
"Yes?" I asked to the blond boy in front of me.
"Hi, I'm Zach. I was uh wondering if you'd wanna come and sit with us," he blushed pointing to the table in the middle of the room.
