Principal Wilkins


Good. The seniors have finally, arrived on their first day. I pushed my glasses up to the beginning tip of my nose. I looked at my watch, 8:05. Everything was on schedule. Perfect. "Scott!" I yelled to my son, leaning against the fence.

"No need to yell...I'm right here." He replied, rolling his eyes.

"The Day Class students are arriving! You know how first days are a little hectic, remember to keep those Day Class girls in line! I'm sure they'll be rioting to see the Night Class students, they arrive right after Day students do."

"Dad- I know what to do."

"Just making sure." I answered, turning my gaze to Fullshire.

The academy was simply amazing. Unfortunately, is was my duty to keep every little thing in line at this school. Without the help of the Disciplinary Committee, I'd probably be killing myself at this instant. Over the summer, the halls had been cleaned, dorms were empty, and complaints vanished. It was simply paradise. Now I had to go back to Hell. Well, that's why I became principal, right? Scott pushed the black steel gate open with a click of the key. I stepped in front with Scott at my side, as the familiar faces of the Day Class students surrounded us. I had already spotted the trouble makers. "Welcome back to Fullshire Academy everyone!" I exclaimed. The response was a dull silence. One, because the girls just wanted to see the Night Class students, and two, some of them were afraid to respond because of well, my harsh tolerance. "I'm happy to see you again! As you know, it's your last year here. Our year will be filled with memories, or punishments. You decide. You probably still remember the rules, but it's time to go over them as always." I was answered with purposed sighs and foot tapping. "Our black uniforms must be worn when you attend the Day Classes. Curfew is 10:30 P.M. I will personally send a Disciplinary Commitee member to recieve you. If this happens, it's one week detention with me. Let's just say, you won't enjoy it. You will stay in the Daylight Dorm- only! If we have spies that sneak out past curfew to the Midnight Dorm, it's one week detention. When school is over at 3:30, you can either stay in the academy, in your dorm, or travel to our nearby small town, Gavinsville. Is that clear?

A boring, "Yes..." Was the answer. I stepped aside to let the students through. Some reluctant, some hyper to get in. Whispers rang through the crowd. And yes, it was mostly about the Night Class.

"Oh, I have been planning to talk to Hunter! He's so charming in his uniform."

"Hunter? I prefer Luciano. So dreamy..."

"Kanjie is the one for me!"


Pathetic. I nodded to Scott as he traveled toward the Midnight Dorm along with Genesis to prepare for the stampede of girls that would be arriving just to get one glimpse of the Night Class. Many boys tagged along also, to marvel at the girls who belonged to the Midnight Dorm. I looked at my watch again, 8:15. The Night Class students approched the gates. They appeared with the exact faces from last year. Alexandra, Kanjie, Ai, Luciano, and Hunter. "Welcome back everyone." I said, with an honest smile. "You know the rules, the Day Class is waiting for you."

The year had begun.

Alice Cartwright

Fullshire Academy. One of the highest ranked private schools in the nation. It was my brains that got me here, and thank God for whoever created scholarships because I'd still be stuck in a trailer cleaning up my father's beer bottles. Fun. I stepped out of my old, banged up van. Yes, of course it was one of the hottest cars I mean, who wouldn't want it? Right... I tugged on my black uniform and curled my blonde hair behind my ear. The gates were beginning to flood with students. I scooted up to the sidewalk as whispers ran through the crowd. I searched the students for Kanjie, I guess he was arriving next. I mean, he was part of the Night Class. Silence fell over the group as Principal Wilkins approached the gates. I pressed up against my toes to rise above the students in front of me. I could barley see anything, but I recognized Scott in his usual position who was leaning against the gate with a icy stare on his face. Are we prisoners or something?
Mr. Wilkins went over the rules, it happened every year because it was like he was dictator. I guess we actually were prisoners. My stomach grumbled. Had I really forgotten breakfast? I was thinking to hard again. Focus.

"Curfew is 10:30...Disciplinary Committe...Gavinsville..." Mr. Wilkins just kept going on, and on. I slightly yawned until I was hit in the back with a purse. The stampede! I completely forgot!

"Midnight Dorm!" A voice squeaked in the distance. "Shit..." The girls began to push and pull and fill into the gates, I was trampled on at my sides and my new uniform boots were stepped on many, many times. After I regained my composure, I took a deep breathe and walked through the gates of Fullshire Academy. The perfect private school. Rose bushes and newly planted trees lined the outer walls of the building. The two Dorms were seperated on each side. On the right, The Daylight Dorm. On the left, The Midnight Dorm where girls were screaming to watch the Night Class pass by. Why were we seperated? No one knew. I looked at the Disciplinary Committee pushing them back with all of their strength. Sometimes, I couldn't blame the Day Class girls. The Night Class students were truly beautiful. I couldn't help but stare at them entering through the gates. Alexandra with her long silver hair, Luciano and his charming looks, Hunter with a wide grin on his face, and Ai with her delicate body and soft look. Then there was Kanjie, pretty much my best friend. You could never tell what he was thinking... He always had a sullen look on his face. I guess that's why I could talk to him so easily, he was calm... and quiet. Criticism? Nope. Not a word out of his mouth. His long hair trailed behind his back as he blended in with the rest of The Night Class.

"Look! There they are!"

"Even more beautiful than last year..."

"He's so looking at me! Isn't he looking at me?"

"Yeah right, ho dosen't have the sense to look at you."

"Hey!"


The whispers of the crowd surrounding the Midnight Dorm sprung into a chant of love. My thoughts were interrupted when the sound of the bell rang. "Late on the first day? Great." I hurried to my homeroom, with Mrs. Revez.

I leaned against the fence and tapped by fingertips against the iron gates.

"Scott!" My father yelled, pulling me out from my thoughts.

"No need to yell... I'm right here." I rolled my eyes.

"The Day Class students are arriving! You know how first days are a little hectic, remember to keep those Day Class girls in line! I'm sure they'll be rioting to see the Night Class students, they arrive right after Day students do."

"Dad- I know what to do." Sometimes, I don't think he trusted me. I had practically grown up in this school, but I still couldn't get through his thick skull. I rolled my eyes and took my foot off the fence, watching the Day Class students approach. "Here we go..." I grabbed the silver key out from my pocket, and placed it into the keyhole. "The first entry of Fullshire." I turned the key slightly as the steel doors burst open. I put they key back into my pocket and turned to see my father handing out the same rules every year. The familiar faces of the academy yawned and sighed. They were as bored as I was. I looked at my watch. "Where is Genesis?" I slightly shrugged and crossed my arms. The excited faces that couldnt wait to walk through the doors were overwhelming, what was so great about the Night Class? I had to admit, everyone including myself had fallen for their beauty or charm. But what did it matter? We could never see them, and they were not in our reach at any given moment. Maybe it's the fact that no one knows why we have two seperate classes. The fact that it's a secret because the Night Class is full of vampires. I stepped to the side as the stampede of girls flooded through. "Time to get to work." I murmured, taking a step towards the gate.

"Not yet Scott." My father said, grabbing my shoulder. "Aren't you forgetting the Night Class?" I turned my gaze towards the Night Class that began to approach. The faces of Kanjie, Ai, Alexandra, Luciano, and Hunter appeared.

"Welcome back, you all know the rules..." My father and I said. I smiled slightly as Ai gave a smile back. I followed behind the Night Class, heading towards the Midnight Dorm to push the crazy fans back.

"I have to say, I did miss this place over the summer. I bet the girls missed us even more!" I exclaimed to the group, laughing a bit. I popped a couple of tablets in my mouth stepped up to the sidewalk. The Day Class had already dispersed, and most were heading towards the Midnight Dorm. Well of course, to admire me, oh- and of course the rest of the group. "Just like we remember it right?" I elbowed Luciano and met Scott's eyes. "Committee crap..." I'd always despised Scott. He was so serious, and behind that fake smile I knew he despised us too.

"Welcome back, you know the rules." Principal Wilkins said. I smiled back to Principal Wikins and shot Scott a look as Ai smiled at him. "I don't trust him Ai..." I whispered in her ear quietly. I pushed forward into the familiar gates of Fullshire along with the Night Class. The rose's sweet scent filled my nose and the girl's cheers filled my ears. "Well, isn't that lovely?" I said to Alexandra, smiling. The group was practically family now. I had the lightning of the group, Alexandra, the quiet one, Kanjie, the serious one, Luciano, and the clown, me. Who would want a better family? We approached the entrance of our dorm. Scott and Genesis had pushed the girls to the side and made a pathway for us. Most of the Night Class was silent, but I took advantage. "Hi girls! How was your summer? Did you miss me?" I blew the crowd a couple of kisses and winked at a few.

"Hunter! I love you!"

"I missed you Hunter!"

"Our summer was great! But we're more concerned about yours!"

It was paradise, until the thought of blood creeps in.

Alexandra sent a small smile in Hunter's direction, her golden eyes occuupied as she stepped forward and entered the humans' line of sight. Though she showed no interest in them, no emotion crossed her features at all as she began to walk.

The lovely young pureblood scanned the crowd of, mostly, giggling girls who were practically falling over themselves. There were, however, the odd few males who called out for the female members of the Night Class. But they were far and few between, especially with the amount of awestruck girls who stared at students such as Hunter with adoration.. Tending to reserve envious glances toward students such as Alexandra.

She barely paid them any attention as she finally turned to Hunter, her response quiet on her own lips to the point any human would need to be right beside her to hear. " Screaming and girls, especially when only having been awake for such a short time, is anything but lovely." The vampire turned her head to look at the rest of the Night Class, her long silvery hair whipping through the air to settle over her small shoulders.

She regrettaking the chance to pop some of her own blood tablets into her mouth as the smell of the humans, their thick red blood pulsing through their veins, caused her to lower her head to hide her eyes. The thirst had returned and she hated how suddenly it had come about. A flare of pain in the back of her throat made Alexandra grasp a portion of her skirt tightly in her left hand. How bothersome.

"Thanks for arriving, Genesis. Why don't we get to work?" I shifted over to the other side of the girls and began to make a walkway for the Night Class. "Girls, we don't have make this hard..." I mumbled.

"Scott why are you such a killjoy?"

"Yeah! You're so serious!" The girls exclaimed. My response was silence and pushing the girls back even further. I looked over to see Genesis, struggling I was.

"There they are!"

"Kanjie, I missed you!"

"Hunter, how was your summer?!"

"Hey Alexandra... looking good."

"Luciano, smile for us!"

"Ai! You look stunning!"


Pathetic. I turned my head slightly to watch the Night students pass. Hunter gave me a stern look. I think we've always despised each other, opposite personalities I guess. The girl's screams rang through my ears as the doors finally closed. "Get to your classes girls. You're already late." I said as the girls dispersed. I turned towards Genesis. "They're worse than last year! I guess it's just their last chance to see them." Genesis was like me- I think. She was hard to read in many ways. We had been partnered for a while, I had always admired her actually. Her willingness to the committee was outstanding. "Nice to see you again." I said shoving my hands in my pockets. "We'll have a year ahead of us..." I turned around and began to walk towards Mrs. Revez's class.

I took a step into the Midnight Dorm. "Home, sweet home!" I exclaimed, jumping onto our red velvet sofa. White tile lined the floor with beautiful black designs. A marble, spiral staircase stood to my left with a grand fireplace in the corner. Many of the others dispersed to visit outside, or unpack their things. I decided to take advantage of rest, before returning to our Night Classes. I closed my eyes gently, for I knew I couldn't sleep. But it was still peaceful.

An hour had passed, when the door creaked open. "Who dares awake me from rest!" I yelled, rubbing my eyes. I small gasp came out of the air towards the doorway. I peaked upward, spotting a girl. Her features were light, and her skin was pale. Her wide yellow eyes were sunken in, but large. Medium reddish hair blew back from her eyes, as I knew she had recently become a vampire. How I knew? I had her features when I was a child. "Well welcome to Fullshire!" Silence, was the response. "I'm a vampire too, it's alright to speak." I said, my smile fading.

"Ok." She answered, closing the door. I felt sorry for her, she was shaking.

"Let me show you around the dorm, then the academy. Ok?" Hopefully she replied with full answer this time.

Vera Scott


Hunter exclaimed, "Who dares wake me from my rest!" I froze. Great I began to shake. I was shy, and a bit scared. I hadn't encountered other vampires before. "It's ok to speak..." He spoke softly. "I'm a vampire too."

"Ok." I replied quietly." He had blonde, tossled hair along with blue eyes and pale skin. I stood there in the doorway, clasping my hands together. I read his mind, it was one of the powers I had gained from that awful night.

"Who is she?... Maybe a new student." He thought.

"I am a new student," I replied. "Vera Scott- you must be Hunter." I took a small bow as his eyes widened. "I would love for you to show me around... If you could?" I looked to the side, twisting my red hair.

Hunter Jerard (OOC Note- I PM'd Vera, making sure I know what she says.)

I stood up from the couch. We had an hour left before our Night Classes. Vera was obviously a mind reader. I took a step forward to her. I could sense some deviousness in her with the smirk she was giving. "Why don't we start with the academy?" I said, trying not to be intimidated. "Shall we? I said, propping my arm in an escort position.

"We shall." She replied, linking her arm. We walked out of the dorm, taking exact steps. "I don't mean to intimidate you." Vera said, calmly. "Sometimes I come on different than who I really am..." I nodded.

"I do that too." We got past the Midnight Dorm gates, and walked casually out. "This is lunch, some of the Day Class students eat outside." We recieved many looks, and many whispers.

"Is that, his girlfriend?"

"It can't be! I've never seen her before."

"Don't tell me Hunter- is taken!"


I rolled my eyes and spoke to Vera, "Pathetic isn't it?"

"Yes. Very pathetic. I can see what's going on inside their minds, it isn't pretty Hunter." Vera answered.

"Well I love to put on a show." I murmered, pulling Vera in closer. "Do you like to?" I kissed her on the cheek gently. She pushed back, stepping on my new shoes. She took my wrist and twisted it. "Ouch!"

"I don't like putting on a show, and neither should you." Vera calmly said. "Thank you." She turned and walked back to the Midnight Dorm, flicking her hair back into my eyes. I bit my lip and turned my glance to the many girls staring. There was no excuse for that. Well, I really didn't like putting on a show for everyone. I just had to hold my reputation.

"Girls these days!" I exclaimed to everyone staring. "Maybe most of you, are kinder?" I said, giving a flirty grin. Everthing turned back to normal as I recieved shy smiles and whispers of love. I walked around the many eaters. The smell of blood was overwhelming. Especially in one area. I took a deep breathe in and spilled some tablets into my mouth. The smell leaned towards someone in the distance, eating. I walked toward the person, getting a closer glimpse. She sat there, eating. The most beautiful human I had ever seen. I studied her features. She had long, black silky hair with light brown, wonderful eyes. Her lips a soft pink, and her skin gave off a soft glow. Someone I would easily penetrate with my fangs. She was trylu amazing. Along with her blood. I walked towards her and bent over, watching her eyes widen. I bowed polietly and sat next to her, recieving a wonderful smell. "What's you name miss? I couldn't help but notice your features..."

Kazu blushed slightly as she noticed the night student bow to her. She never had one actually walk up to her. She quickly tried to tear her eyes from his beauty and for a second, it didn't work but then she finally got her will back and looked back down at her sandwich.
"My name is Kazumi Sasaki.... You can call me Kazu... And you are?" She asked as she saw many girls were giving her envious glares. Even the girls who previously stood in her way. What was wrong with them? Did they ever heard of karma before? And so what if she didn't know his name. It wasn't like she stalked him like most of the other girls.

"My name is Kazumi Sasaki.... You can call me Kazu... And you are?" I found myself getting lost in her eyes. I was suprised, because that never really happened before. They were a vibrant light brown, with a tint of yellow. It reminded me of home, the place where I wasn't. I looked up at her replying softly,

"My name is Hunter. Hunter Jerard." I couldn't keep my eyes off of her, though many eyes were on me. She had beautiful, and long silky black hair with cut off bangs. Her skin was a light, soft color. "It's nice to meet you- Kazu." I smiled. "I couldn't help the fact that you were here alone. And why is that?" I felt like I could actually talk without being arrogant for once. What a strange feeling.

"Because it can sometimes be annoying when the only thing out of some of the girls here is about the night class.... No offense... It's just I'd rather a more... interesting conversation with some variation instead of what guy is everyone's favorite and how sweet they are. Now if you'll excuse me" Kazu said as she quickly finished off her sandwich.
"I should get going before your crazy fans rip me apart. I gotta study anyway. See you Hunter." She said as she quickly got all her stuff and walked to her next class. Even if he was nice, it would be a tiny bit too much trouble to talk to him.... Maybe she was a bit rude back there, but she'd rather get a good seat in choir. It was, after all, her favorite class. Also, it was the only class that she actually felt close to her dad.
She sat down in the class and once everyone was in, the teacher greeted them and gave them their quarter music. After getting to know everyone's names, the class was dismissed. After that, she quickly walked to English. Again, she sat in the front due to the rowdy students. She listened intently as the class went on and when the bell rang, she started heading to her dorm right away. She still needed to unpack and study more.

I watched her leave. It seems she didn't take much intrest in me, as I did her. "Because it can sometimes be annoying when the only thing out of some of the girls here is about the night class.... No offense... It's just I'd rather a more... interesting conversation with some variation instead of what guy is everyone's favorite and how sweet they are. Now if you'll excuse me" "I should get going before your crazy fans rip me apart. I gotta study anyway. See you Hunter." I felt a pain jab inside of me. How could I already be so attached? Might as well not see her agin, her blood would just be closer to my fangs. I looked around, being sucked back into reality. I walked fowards, hands jabbed into my pockets heading towards the Night Class. I was already late.

Kazu quickly walked into her room. She looked around and saw two girls there who looked liked exact opposites. One that looked like doom and gloom and one that looked all peppy.
"Hello. I'm Kazumi Sasaki but please just call me Kazu. I'm your new room mate." She said, hoping her room mates weren't the rowdy type. She always hated it when she was stuck with them.... Or one of those vicious girls who stalked the night class. As she thought of the night class, Hunter's face popped back in her head. Now, this was odd for her. This never seemed to happen with anyone else.
'Hmm, seems I might turn into a creepy stalker girl.' She joked with herself which was also extreamly unusual. She quickly forgot the thought because she knew introductions were in order and it's be rather rude to not pay attention to everyone's name.
