She would always do things so that her mother would praise her and ignore her brother. Her brother took this negatively and grew up bratty and annoying. Things stayed the same for a long time. She would always be praised and her brother would be punished until her brother caught on to Lacey's trick.

Her little brother was a copy cat. He would bring home straight A's like Lacey and do his chores on time like Lacey, and one time he even used the word 'please' at the dinner table. Her mother was giving him all sorts of unnecessary praise that was pulled away from Lacey. She condemned him for his smart thinking, but he was still a little brat when him and Lacey were alone. Now this is her third year in high school and she can't wait to get out.

Lacey


Lacey walked to her locker and grabbed her writing notebook. She then took out her phone and plugged in her headphones. She immediatly started blasting Fences by Paramore and made her way to the canteen. She was thinking about the next poem she should write as she sat st an empty table. She pulled out her phone so she could text Jacob, her best friend.

To: Jacob
From: Lacey
I'm at the canteen. Hurry up so I can eat your food. :)


She was always eating Jacob's food since she never bought the school's food. She changed songs to Cirles by Paramore and flipped open her notebook. She skipped past so of the poems and stories she has written so she was on an empty page. She crossed her skinny jean covered legs and began to write.

The title of this poem was called the dark and all the words after that were associated with it. She went back and starged editing sincecshe wrote everuthing in pen. As she was writing she heard laughtet over her music coming from the popular table. Something hystericsl must have happened, but she didn't care enough to find out.

Her and the populars weren't at the best of terms. Even if she was friends with sone of them she never associatex herself with them. She liked to be her own which is why she is sitting at tabke by herself waiting for her bestfriend.

Rosalynd Sorbie
Rosa shoved her notebook in her locker and made her way to the canteen. So far school hadn’t managed to put her in a shitty mood, which borderline impressive. Though this probably had to do with the fact she had ditched her two first classes; maths and english, choosing sleep over her two least favorite class. She had shown up just in time for PE, being well rested of course. Though when she decided to sleep in she hadn’t realized that everyone would be finding out their dorms today. Also that she’d miss hassling the new freshmen in morning. Back to the main point though, she wasn’t to worried about not knowing who she was rooming up with. She’d just ask around, someone would know.

Arriving in the canteen, Rosa got herself a chicken and lettuce roll before choosing where she’d sit. She nodded and gave a blunt hello to Darcy as she passed both her and Cara sitting together, moving to the outskirts of the Canteen. She didn’t care all that much for Cara, and well, she wasn’t all buddy, buddy with Darcy. She saw the populars, jocks and whatnot, sitting together, she could have easily joined them. She didn’t though, she was friends with a lot of them, but there was a reason she wasn’t a part of their clique. Besides the two people she knew the best in that clique were Mike and Dehlilah, but that seemed to be a having a couple moment. That and she wasn’t nearly self-conscious enough to worry about how people would look at her if she sat alone.

She ended up choosing a seat at an empty bench, where her back was facing the way and see could watch everything going on. Unwrapping her lunch, she ripped off a bit and popped it into her mouth. She watched everything going on in the canteen, waiting for something exciting to happen and hoping that lunch didn’t pass too quickly.


Jacob Preston
Jay was lounging on a couple of steps he had stumbled , quite a distance away from the canteen and the business that usually surrounded lunch. The sun that was shining down on him had made him lazy, he was pulled from his daydreams by his phone in his back pocket though. He briefly looked at the text he had received from Lacey, his best friend, before somehow managing to pull himself up off the steps. He didn’t bother replying though, he’d just go see her in person. Walking into the canteen, it didn’t take him long to find her, she was the one sitting at an empty table, writing in a notebook with earphones in.

Walking towards her though he passed Cara and Darcy. “Hey you two,” He said to them as a friendly greeting, before giving a friendly wink to Cara. He and her were fairly good friends, who hanged out from time to time. Not to mention she was gorgeous, hey, he was a guy, he couldn’t help but notice. Looking across the table he saw, a girl that he presumed was a freshman. Freshmen weren’t exceeding hard to pick out. As a general rule of thumb, they were people Jay had never seen before, which was obvious because he knew almost everybody. Not that he a busy body, or was friends with everybody, he was just a friendly and open guy. They also generally looked uncomfortable and out of place. This is normally where Jay would have made a friendly introduction but the girl was hunched over her game-boy. She also looked to be concentrating on what she was doing and he didn’t want to distract her. Giving Cara and Darcy one last smile he continued walking towards Lacey, he trusted the two girls to be friendly enough with the freshman.

As he approached Lacey’s table, Jay opened the packet of chips he was holding and put them down on the table in front of her. “Sorry, It’s not gourmet, it’s all a had and I can’t be stuffed getting up and getting anything else.” Jay said grinning at his best friend. He had seen her in the midst of writing a poem on her notepad, but he didn’t try to read it over her shoulder, if she wanted him to read it, she’d say so. “So, how’s school treating you so far?” He asked as he reached for one of those folded type chips from the packet he had laid on the table. “Snag a good roommate?”


Jay had gotten Mike, the soccer dude. Jay didn’t mind all that much about who he got roomed with though, he had the ability of getting along with just about anybody. Even though it seemed like he was that odd number student who got roomed with someone from another year level. Him and Mike hadn’t talked much lately but it wasn’t like he was pining for conversation with the boy. Besides, Mike was always much better conversation away from his jock friends anyway. He looked over at Lacey though thinking of the girls in her level that she might have gotten roomed with. Now Jay doesn’t claim to understand the ways of girls, in any way shape or form. He did figure though that he knew Lacey well enough to assume she wouldn’t have of been bothered that much by who she was roomed with.

Lacey


Lacey ripped out a page in her notebook angry that she had lost her inspiration. she threw and stared at the page thinking of something else to write. The song Emergency by Paramore played and she just started writing a fake letter to tell a story. She thought about how to start it and this is how far she got.

Dear you,

This isn't a proper greeting, but you never gave me the proper goodbye. since you failed now I have to start. I hate you. Is that too harsh? Let me try again. I strongly dislike you. I don't know why you just make me mad. Every time I see you I think of hurting you. I obviously haven't, but someone else has. You have no idea how-


She got that far and that's when the chips landed in front of her. She pulled out her headphones and was going to throw them back at whoever threw it, but it was Jacob so she smiled instead. "Thanks." She opened them and at a chip and turne off her music. She was eating them and Jay asked her who she was roomed with. "I don't know. I forgot to check the roster thing. But I don't care as long as i'm away from Demi."

She hated Demi. That was the only person in the school she actually hated. She couldn't get over how much Demi bothered her over the years and Lacey could have killed her, but alas Lacey had mercy on her. "Whose your roomie Jay?" She ate half the chips and then pushed them away from her. She wasn't one to eat often. She looked at Jay who looked pretty cute today, but he always looked liked that. she rested her head in her hands and waited for his response.

Jay laughed as Lacey admitted she hadn't checked who she was roomed with, trust her to forget something like that. She was honestly a complete scatter brain, but for some reason for her it just worked, it was kind of adorable. She also hadn’t cared all that much, proving that Jay did in fact know his best friend as much as he though he did.

"I got Mike," he replied slowly, he knew Mike wasn’t Lacey’s favorite person in the school but it didn’t really matter all that much. Jay didn’t really make a habit of hanging out in his room. Not only did he strongly prefer sunshine over being inside but he also played guitar a lot. He always felt bad for his roommates having to put up with his guitar thing, so he always found places inside school grounds to hangout instead.

Jay turned to see what was going on behind him, when he heard a commotion going on. He just ignored it though when he saw a food fight had erupted within the populars, it didn’t effect him in any way. Unless of course it spread to the whole canteen, he doubted it would though. He didn't doubt that some jocks were going to be in some serious trouble, he knew Dehlilah well enough to know she was not going to be happy, he almost pitied Mike.

Smiling lightly he turned back to Lacey, “Well I just hope you get a good roommate,” he said sincerely before his tone turned joking. “Cause, you know if get someone I don’t like, I will be forced not to come around and see you.” He laughed a little, it wasn’t even a good joke, she knew better than anyone, that he was able to get along with anybody. Last year he had gotten on better with Lacey’s roommate than she had.

He then grabbed a couple more chips from the packet before rolling up the opening of the packet, so the chips wouldn’t go stale. “I see you enjoyed my lunch,” he said to himself laughing quietly. Lacey always ate his food, he couldn’t remember when it started but it was what they did every lunch time, the day just wouldn’t have felt right if she didn’t take his food off him.

Lacey


Lacey rolled her eyes when Jay had mentioned his roomate was Mike. She didn't hate Mike it was just that she couldn't stand being around him. She tried to talk to to him in freshman year, but he rejected her in frot of her soccer buddies and she refused to talk to him now. "You can count on me never coming to your room." She smiled since she knew that was a lie. Jay liked to play his guitar in his room so of course she would be there.

Speak of the devil. Mike was over at the populars having a food ight and Dehlilah was a mess. Lacey gigled since it was funny, but looked back over to Jay since they weren't her priority at the moment Jay was. In her line of sight she could see Cara was looking at Jay and she could tell she ha a crush on him. Jay was really cute so who wouldn't. He ate another chip from the bag ad smiled.

Jay made a cheesy joke about how he wouldn't come to see her if her room mate was some one he didn't like. She laughed since that was a lie. Jay made more friends than Lacey has ever made in her life. She didn't care since she liked the silence sometimes. "I probably won't be in my dorm most of the time anyway. I'd rather be on the patio outside when it's dark." Se closed her notebook since ot was still open. She liked being outside in the dark since it helped her write.

Lacey reached for another chipped and nodded when Jay mention how he enjoyed his lunch. "Yes I did. It was the best." She rested her head into her hands and finished chewing the chip in her hand. The populars were botherin er and she was getting sick of the other people in the canteen. "Hey Jay. Can we leave the canteen? I want to hear you play your guitar and I am getting sick of this place." She said playfully.

Jay laughed, there was no way Lacey would avoid coming to his room just because of Mike and they both knew it. She enjoyed listening to him play guitar way too much to cut out seeing him in his room all together. Besides, he assumed Mike wouldn’t even be around that much; he seemed the type to be always hanging out with his jock friends.

When she mentioned that she liked to hangout on the patio anyway, he smiled softly, he knew she preferred writing out in the dark. They had a boatload of good memories hanging outside in the dark together, sharing memories and whatnot. Something about the dark always made you feel like opening up.

The moment Lacey mentioned leaving though, it took less than a second for him to jump up from his seat. “I thought you’d never ask,” he replied grinning, indoors were never his thing and he found the canteen to be, stuffy. Grabbing his now almost empty packet of chips with one hand, he slung his other arm over Lacey’s shoulders already pulling her towards the exit. “Besides, you were the one who invited me to the canteen,” he said sarcastically rolling his eyes in good humor as they neared the exit.

The two of them reached the door to get out of the canteen at about the same time as Mike and Dehlilah. Jay gave a small sympathetic smile to Mike, knowing that he was going to have hell to pay. He didn’t say anything to either of them though as he knew Lacey wouldn’t want to stick around and talk to Mike. Instead, he used to arm he still had planted of her shoulders to lead her away from the two on them.

He continued leading her down a couple of corridors until they came across the stair he had been lounging on earlier. He smiled when he discovered the stairs were still bathed in the same sunlight as before. Finally releasing Lacey, he spread himself out across the stairs, stretching his legs. He then smiled up at Lacey and patted the spot next to him, motioning for her to join him. He found himself staring at her for longer than he should have though. He couldn't help admiring how gorgeous she looked in the sunlight.

Lacey


Lacey giggled when Jay jumped out of his seat to leave the canteen. "You seem way too excited to leave." She gathered her notebook and phone while Jay was guiding her out of the canteen with his arms draped over her shoulders. He joked about how he invited him there anyway. "I wouldn't have if you were on time." She giggled and walked out the doors. Mike and his girlfriend Lacey was out there as well.

Lacey thought he deserved whatever was coming to him. Messing with the queen bee like that, even Lacey knew better and she wasn't one to care much about the populars. She felt bad for Dehlilah thought since she was soaked an her shirt was see through. There was nothing she could do so she just continued the walk with Jay.

They got to a stairwell and Jay let go of her to sit down. He patted the seat next to him and she sat down. She streched put her legs and put them on Jay's legs and leaned back on the wall. She opened her notebook and looked at the fiction letter she started. She wanted to finish it, but she'd rather here Jay play. She close the notebook. "Where's your guitar? That guitar is usually with you more than I am and I am with you all the time." Which was true.

Cara Williams

Cara watched as Jacob and Lacey left the Canteen, and Jacob had his arm around Lacey. Her heart sank. She wished that was her. She sighed, biting her lip sadly. Cara ran her fingers through her hair, set her salad down on the table, then turned and headed off toward the bathroom. Once in the bathroom, Cara walked inside the stall and locked it behind her. She leaned against the stall door, shutting her eyes. She took a deep breath. She was roommates with Lacey, maybe she could to talk to her about Jacob later that night, and find out whether Lacey liked him. That sounded like a decent plan to her and she began to calm down.

Cara unlocked the stall door and went over to the sink. She looked at her face in the mirror, applied a coat of lip gloss, then exited the bathroom. She walked back over to the table Darcy was sitting at, and glanced again at the girl playing Gameboy, before sitting down.

Jay watched as Lacey got out her notebook that she was forever writing in, so he leaned back on the step behind and allowed his eyes to flutter closed. He had set himself up for a less talky and more peaceful remainder of lunch before she mentioned his guitar. He laughed lazily, she was right, he always had his guitar with him, it felt weird not having it with him.

“It’s a tragedy Lace, one of the strings broke and I didn’t have time to fix it up before school started. I was forced to leave it in my room.” He replied very melodramatically as he grinned, though keeping his eyes closed as he talked. “I think I’m having withdrawal symptoms,” he added on sarcastically but more quietly, trailing off at the end and allowing the peaceful silence to engulf him once again.

Jay loved hanging out with Lacey for this exact reason. He could get along with and chat with anybody, but with Lacey they didn’t have to be doing anything in particular. They didn’t even have to be talking and he still enjoyed himself. You can have fun and exciting moments with anyone, it’s the people that make the ordinary and borderline boring moments enjoyable that are worth keeping around. For him that person was Lacey and anyone would be hard pressed to beat her out of that position, not impossible though.

“But hey I’ll make you a deal,” Jay spoke up after a few minutes, knowing she had wanted to hear him play. “You finish up whatever you’re writing in that notebook now and I promise to fix up my guitar after school and then I’ll play something for you.” He continued, his eyes remaining closed, after a few moments though he nudged her gently and spoke again, adding to what he had just said. “Something new. Do we have a deal?”

He didn't have anything new, she had heard everything he had multiple times before, but she didn't know that. For all she knew he could have heaps of new stuff that he had been working on over summer. Of course if she took the deal she'd find out later but that was later, Jay could deal with stuff that's later, later. Besides she could never stay angry at him.

Lacey listened to him explain the tragedy of his guitar and how he was going through withdrawal. "Poor baby. You need to get her fixed." Lacey often called his guitar a girl because she believed that the guitar she could be a girl. Lacey pulled her legs off of Jay and leaned on him instead. She opened her notebook and read over the letter she wrote in the cafeteria. It wasn't done yet. She closed it again.

Jay proposed a deal. The deal was that Lacey finish whatever she was writing and he would fix his guitar and come to play her a new song. She pretended to think about the deal as of it were a hard decision. He nudged her and she agreed. "Deal." She was going to finish it even if they never made a deal.

Lacey pulled out her pencil, lofted her knees and placed the notebook in front of her.
...you have no idea- That's where se stopped when Jay entered the canteen. She thought for a moment and smiled because she had the idea.

...You have no idea how hard it is to right to you. First of all there is no way you can respond so it is a waste of my time. And second of all the mailman doesn't deliever letters to a tombstone. I will have to take it to you and read it. So again I repeat my earlier statement. I hate you. I hate you because I loved you and I thought you loved me. I hate you because saved me and it ended your life. You weren't suppose to die my death. I hate you because you will stop saying 'I love you' to me. I hate myself for losing my one true love. So now, here I am wanting to die along with you. But I couldn't bring myself to do it when you first died, but now things have changed. By the time I finish the letter she be covered in my blood. I hate you, but only because I love you. In order to be runited with you my life has to come to a complete end.

From your Enemy,
Your true love


Lacey read it from beginning to end and closed the notebook. "I'm done, but you can't see it until the guitar is fixed." She smiled and put the notebook away.

~ Darcy Smith ~
14:00 - Canteen


Darcy's heart froze for a second as Dehlilah turned her head and raised her eyebrows accusingly at her. She looked down immediately, feeling her cheeks burn red. She knows. She knows that I like Mike.

"-rooming with Lacey and...some girl I've never heard of before. She must be a freshman. Her name's Ashley." Darcy looked up as Cara answered her question. Lacey was nice, and a freshman would be easy enough to ignore. Darcy would trade room mates any day. She noticed her gaze turn to the girl playing on her gameboy, before adding in, "What about you, who are you rooming with?"

"Err, Dehlilah.. Dehlilah Dane." Darcy bit her lip as she said this, looking down at her purple converse. She kicked her legs back and forth awkwardly. She wasn't looking forward to sharing a room with a girl who seemed to hate her.

When she looked up again, Cara was talking to the girl with the gameboy, blushing about something. Darcy focused her attention, trying to hear what she was blushing about. "...Just a friend of mine." Damn, she must have missed the start of the conversation.

The bell rang, signalling that everyone was to go get their books for their next class. Darcy stood up, brushing up her ripped jeans and purple lace top, before grabbing her bag and getting ready to leave.


The bell has rang, meaning finish up your conversation in your next post or so, and then go get your books for the next class, depending what grade you are in. Junior and Senior lockers are downstairs, Freshman and Sophomore are upstairs.

Jay looked over at Lacey acting pained, “you drive a hard bargain,” he said finally, hoping she’d reconsider. The bell rang out, signaling that it was time for them to put their conversation on hold. Sighing he stood up slowly and stretched out his arms, he had almost fallen asleep for a moment there when she was writing in her notebook. ”Fine, then I’ll fix my guitar, then you’ll let me read what you wrote. Yeah?” Jay asked as he leaned down, extending out his arm to help Lacey up.

“What have you got next then?” He asked as they made their way towards their way indoors and towards their lockers, they both had lockers downstairs this year. It definitely sucked that he was in the year above Lacey though, it meant that they didn’t have classes together. Of course that and the fact he would have graduated this time next year. They didn’t really talk about that though, it was like the elephant in the room, they saved that topic for the dark nights.

It almost felt cold inside now though after spending most of lunchtime in the sun, he was definitely not feeling like returning to classes. Thankfully though he had PE next so hopefully, he could make it through the afternoon, at least he had already tackled his least favorite subject; geography, earlier in the day. It wasn’t that he hated the teacher or anything, he just didn’t get geography and refused to even try to understand it, it was more a stubborn thing. He hated geography at one point in time and so now he refuses to give it a second chance. Like those annoying people who claim to hate food they have never in fact tried.

Lacey


Lacey laughed at how dramatic he was being about the be he made with her. The bell rang out and he sighed. She allowed him to help her up and she held her notebook close to her chest. "Yay. I look foreward to your guitar. But can I listen to it in your dorm. I want to avoid my room mates for now." She smiled and walked with Jay towards the lockers.

He asked her what class she had next and she thought for a moment. "Buisness? I think. All I know is it isn't english and I am going to be bored." She hated every class pretty much except for english. If Jay shared some maybe she wouldn't have been so bored. But of course he was a year older and had no time together in class. "Skipping souds pretty good about now." She laughed. She would never skip in a million years.

They reached her locker first and she opened it revealing how neat and orgamized it was. It was filled with pictures of her, paramore and some of her bestfriend, Jay. She played the notebook in her loker and grabbed her textbooks for her next class. She shut her locker.

"Sure whatever you want," Jay replied easily to her request about listening to him play in his dorm, though that wasn't to say he wasn't surprised. He didn't claim to know how the girl world worked though so he just shrugged it off with a lazy smile. When she mentioned skipping Jay laughed lazily knowing she would never even seriously consider skipping school. He had skipped a few times here and there, no more than the regular highschooler, Lacey never came with him though. He had to find other friends for that.

"Well, I guess I'll see you after school sometime," he said as they arrived at Lacey's locker. He walked backwards away from her, giving her a small wave, when he turned around to continue walking to his locker though, he ran straight into someone. "Shit sorry," he said automatically, not even looking at who who he had run into, still processing the fact he had pretty much bowled into someone. Once he got his bearing straight he realized the person he had run into was Cara and a warm friendly smile spread across his face. It was always good to see her, even in a situation like this.

"Care, I totally didn't see you there, my bad," he said, with a lazy grin while he scratched the back of his neck. He felt terrible about running into such a caring sweet person, though he hoped she'd see the funny side in it. He hadn't witnessed it firsthand but he heard she could have a bit of a temper. "You are okay though yeah?" He asked sincerely after a few beats. He wouldn't have described her as fragile, especially since Lacey had, had a fit last time he called a girl fragile, but she wan't exactly tall or solid. Don't get him wrong though, in any case other than this, that a was a positive thing.

Looking down at her books he noticed she was on her way to business, he had to hold back an involuntary grimace. If geography was his least favorite subject, business was his second least favorite. "On your way to business I see..." Jay said nodding towards her books, his tone doing nothing to hide his distaste for business, in fact it probably aided in making his dislike more obvious.

Lacey smiled when he said that she could listen to his guitar in his dorm. She wasn't ready to see her room mates just yet. She pulled out her phone and headphones so she could listen to music. She turned and waved goodbye to Jay as he left. She placed her earbuds in her ear and blasted Ignorance by Paramore.

She started down the hall to her business class even thought she hated that class with a passion. She hated math way more though. She looked around for Tyler, but she didn't see him. She would catch up with him in class unless he skipped. She walked into the classroom and took a seat in the back corner.

Her and tyler weren't best friends like her and Jay, but he was cool to talk to when he let his guard down. He was always being mysterious and it was interesting. She didn't ever see him hang out with much people, but she never asked him about it. She would talk to him when she could.

She realized who she had the share the class with and she grew tense. Demi had her class. She wasn't here yet, but she was tensed up anyway. She went back to focusing on her music so she didn't loose her mind.

Demi quickly glared at Mike's back as soon as the boy left with her best friend, she groaned in frustration. If only she could open her best friend's eyes and show her how incompetent her current squeeze is. Besides, who wants to date a guy like Mike? Not her. Definitely not her. If he wasn't as good looking he definitely wouldn't be hanging around the in crowd and often times she suspects that he just dates Dee just so he could be on top of the chain.

She rolled her eyes and went straight to her locker, her presence was enough to cause paranoia on other students. All of them moved sideways, as if she was Moses parting the Red Sea, while she made her way to her locker. She pulled out a few books and shut her locker closed and strutted towards Business Class. The very first for her since she missed the first few classes.

Demi was about to walk inside the classroom just in time as the bell rang, signalling the rush of students to head straight for their assigned classes, when she saw Darcy by the hallway. She rolled her eyes at the girl and intently bumped her shoulder into the girl's as Darcy's books dropped on the floor as she feigned an apologetic look and mockingly whispered under the noise of the hallway, "Ooppss... Sorry" She gave Darcy a pout and continued walking towards her classroom not looking back nor helping the poor girl with her things.

As she entered, Demi quickly roamed her gaze to find a good seat for the semester and since she was doing exceptional in all her classes, she decided to take a seat at the back, where she knew more people who can keep her occupied and refrain from getting into the boredom zone. A few wanna be's smiled at her, squeaking small hellos and a little wave as Demi went pass through them. While a few boys winked at her, all of them getting the same cold glare from her. Soon she was able to find a suitable seat just in the smack of the middle aisle and as she took her seat, her gaze went straight to her right where Lacey Holden was sitting.

She gently shook her head, she doesn't get why these girls continued to exist in her classes. She then returned her attention to her things and arranged them like the OC that she is. When she wondered where could her best friend be? She should have arrived earlier than I did, Demi thought silently to herself. She quickly pulled her cellphone from her satchel and sent Dehlilah a message:

Dee! Where are thou? This class is being filled by losers! I need you! xo Demi

Rosalynd Sorbie
Rosa gave up on the canteen in less than two minutes; it was crowded, noisy and full of pretentious dick heads who seriously needed get over themselves. So she was hanging out with the burnouts behind one of the older buildings, cigarette hanging out of her mouth when the bell rang. Sighing she dropped her cigarette on to the ground, extinguishing it with her heel before looking up and the rest of the group. Of course none of them even looked like they were going to start moving to class anytime soon.

"Leaving so soon Rosa?" One of them called out like the bell hadn't just gone, Rosa just smiled though, they were called the burnouts for a reason. "Yeah, I wanna start the year on a good note," replied before turning her back on them and heading towards where he locker was located. Just before she was out of earshot she heard on of the juniors yell out about her missing the first two class. She turned around, jokingly giving him the finger before continuing in the direction of her locker.

She grabbed her generic notebook that she used for every class before heading to Business. She never took anything more than a notebook to her classes, which usually landed her in trouble, but she couldn't be stuffed. Plus, she usually always lost her books anyway, not like how she lost her homework, like actually lost. Arriving at class she saw about half the class had already taken their seats but she paid them no mind, heading straight to the back of the classroom. Hopefully up the back she would be able to avoid questions and getting in trouble for sleeping and not paying attention.

As she approached the back she couldn't help noticing Demi looking at Lacey like you would a fly in your drink, before fixing up her stuff like an OCD freak. Not that Rosa felt bad for Lacey, if she couldn't stand up for herself Rosa wasn't going to be jumping up and down to do it for her. The way Demie walked around like she was untouchable and the big bad wolf just seriously pissed Rosa off. She wouldn't go as far as to say she hated Demi though because that would be sad, Demi wasn't even worth her time. Though of course if she was there Rosa wasn't just going to throw away the opportunity. "Time of the month much Demi," Rosa said sarcastically, fake smiling at the girl before sitting herself down in the seat directly in front of Demi, propping her feet up on the desk.

"Time of the month much Demi," A familiar voice disturbed Demi's thoughts as Rosa took the seat in front of her. She quickly wrinkled her nose and took her VS Bombshell perfume from her bag and started spraying in the air as if she was using Lysol.

"Augghhh! Now I know where that smell came from," She placed the cap back on her perfume bottle and tried to act like she was hyperventilating from a sickening smell. "Do you ever take showers- Rosalynd?" A group of cheerleaders (Dehlilah's drones) laughed at her remark but she quickly turned her head at them and gave them a glare. She then sighed and returned her gaze back at the front of the classroom, just in time to see s. Toban, their Business teacher, arriving with a thick stack of handouts and her purse. "Go on Rosa, turn around and face the teacher and pay very good attention. That way you'd stop flunking the classes that really mattered," She gave Rosa an equally fake smile as her face slowly turned blank.

"Ms. Collins, is there a problem?" Mrs. Toban asked, as Demi realized that her best friend is still no where to be found. Where the heck are you Dee?

So to buy her best friend the time to sneak in the classroom without being handed a tardy slip, Demi decided to keep their teacher occupied, "Oh nothing Ms. T, just trying to know my classmates for this semester." She gave the woman her best smile and continued, "So how was your summer Ms. T? I do have a little something for you by the way." She then pulled out a small white box wrapped with a golden ribbon, she stood up and walked towards the teacher and handed Ms. Toban the small box. "Daddy and Mom, wanted me to give you this. They said it was a small gift for being the best Business teacher here at FMH."

Dee, you better get your ass in here. Demi silently thought as she kept her best smile intact. The lady opened the box to find a gorgeous mineral bracelet, her eyes were the sign that she did like the "little" present. "It's supposed to relieve you of stress. Go on try it," Demi continued to be chummy with the professor, making little glances at the door for her best frien.

Lacey


Lacey was sitting in the corner and the devil herself came in and took a seat. She would have said some rude comment as usual, but Rosalynd beat her too it. She snickered because all of Rosalynd's comments were hilarious. Demi seemed a little out of it because Dehlilah wasn't here which was fine with her. She took out her headphones and slipped her phone into her pocket. She opened her writer's notebook and she opened the business textbook. She was of course going to write in this class because she writes in just about every class.

She as she was thinking about something to write a new guy walked in and the teacher introduced him as Destery, which was a very unique name. She nodded in approval since she wasn't a people person that actually meant something. Demi of course made her move on the guy and she laughed a bit. Rosalynd told her to steer clear of her which reminded Lacey, why she talked to Rosalynd. She looked over at the Destery. "Since we are introducing ourselves to people, I'm Lacey. Welcome to this uh- who am I kidding, how did you end up in this hell hole?" She smiled at her comment.

Even though she made some friends here she didn't actually like the school. She'd rather go to a regular school and be able to see her parents everyday. And besides there isn't an escape when you are in this place. That reminds me, I need to go and find out who my roomies are. She was at least happy that she almost had her best friend to herself, but he was a friendly person and likes to talk to people. Speaking of best friends.

To: Jay
From: Lacey
I hate Business and Demi is here and I feel like I am going to die. Save me from boredom.

Cara laughed as he was sarcastic about how much he played guitar. She'd heard that he was always playing guitar, and whenever she saw him he usually had his guitar. "Yeah my favorite band plays a lot of acoustic," she explained to him. "Oh my God seriously? You would teach me? I would love that!" Jacob said that he had made her late and apologized. Cara hadn't even realized that the bell had rung. "Oh shoot," she said, but with a laugh. She smiled and waved as he walked off. "See you later!" She said with a smile. She made a right and headed to the Business classroom.

She slipped inside. "Sorry I'm late," she muttered to the teacher, then picked the only available seat in the classroom. She laid her books down on the desk. Her phone buzzed and she pulled it out of her pocket. It was a text from Jay. Involuntarily, a smile spread across her face. She glanced up at the teacher and then, with her phone hidden under the desk, typed up a reply.

To: Jay
From: Cara
Hey! Totally serious. I've always wanted to learn! :)

She stuffed the phone back in her pocket and looked up at her classmates. Demi, Darcy, Lacey, and some kid she had never seen before. Who was he? New student maybe?

Jacob Preston
It took less than a second for Jay's phone to buzz, notifying him that he had received a message. He frowned slightly though, even if Cara was one of those girls who was always on her phone, there was no way she could have responded that fast. His frown turned into a smile though when he discovered that the text was from Lacey. Even though they weren’t in any of the same classes they still kept in touch and expressed their hatred of their classes and teachers through texts.

To: Lacey
From: Jay
Chin up, could be worse. I’ve got PE with the terminator. Dodgeball. Yay.


Jay after sending off a text to Lacey smiled a little and almost felt a little better about how he was going to be spending his whole next class. The terminator was their name for Coach Sanders and if you knew her you would know it was quite an accurate nickname. Before he could slide his phone back into his pocket though it buzzed again, this time it was from Cara; replying to his earlier message. Smiling at her apparent enthusiasm, he texted her back, of course making sure to look up occasionally to make sure he wasn’t gaining any unwanted attention from the Terminator.

To: Cara
From: Jay
That’s awesome. Now there’s no way I can’t teach you. How’s business treating you.


After replying to her text Jay began moving to the edge of the gym hoping to go by unnoticed until he saw one of the ladies from the office walking towards him. He could never remember her name, all he knew was that she didn’t teach classes and this wasn’t the first time she had come to fetch him from class at this time of year. It was just one of the negatives of being known as the guy who got along with just about anybody.

”Jacob, I’m excusing you from class, I need you for something. Come with me.” She said, all business like usual. Jay just smiled pleasantly and shook his head lightly as he followed her out of the gym, he didn’t care all that much for staying for the rest of PE anyway. They both came arrived at the main school offices where he saw a girl with wavy brown waiting for them. “Jacob, you know the deal, this is Skyanna, Skyanna this is Jacob, he’ll show you around and help you get settled.” She said, introducing the two of them, still in her usual, clipped, businesslike style. Once she had walked off Jay smiled at Skyanna, “Jay, resident friendly guy on campus, if you've got any questions direct them my way. I promise not to laugh unless they are really stupid,” he said jokingly before moving towards the door, motioning for her to follow him.

~ Darcy Smith ~
14:10 - Business Classroom


The teacher started saying something, and Darcy glanced up to hear the end of her sentence. "-is Destery," Ms. Toban finished, gesturing toards the boy who had just entered the classroom. His brunette hair hung in curls around his deep blue eyes. Darcy's eyes widened slightly, before blushing and quickly looking down at her arm, where she was doodling.

The boy with a weird name - what was it, Dexter? Something like that - sat down next to Demi, and Darcy almost felt a pang of sympathy towards him.
"Hi, I'm Demi Collins. Since you are new, I wouldn't mind showing you around," Demi said to the weird named yet extremely attractive boy. Seemed like Demi agreed with Darcy.

"Just a tip to the new guy from a girl that's been here far too long, I'd avoid her, she's completely nuts," Rosa butted in. Darcy tried to stop herself from bursting into laughter, but just managed to make some sort of whispery noise. She felt her eyes unwillingly tear up, and quickly wiped them away.

"Since we are introducing ourselves to people, I'm Lacey. Welcome to this uh- who am I kidding, how did you end up in this hell hole?" Lacey added. Darcy smiled at her, blushing lightly.

"And I'm Darcy. It seems like you've managed to get a class with the most insane people in the school," Darcy added in, joking. "And there's Dehlilah, too. She's not here right now, though." My roommate," she thought grimly to herself. She shot a glance over to Demi as she said this. "Apart from me, obviously. I'm not insane - well, not completely anyway." She grinned at the weird named boy.

Destrey Knight


Destery realized after he'd taken his seat that he wouldn't be completely ignored or lonely his first day. He found himself surrounded by girls, not that he was complaining, they were all pretty attractive.

"Hi, I'm Demi Collins. Since you are new, I wouldn't mind showing you around," the girl next to him said. She seemed confident, and somewhat friendly. HE couldn't tell whether she was actually kind or if she had other motives.

"Just a tip to the new guy from a girl that's been here far too long, I'd avoid her, she's completely nuts," the one in front of her turned around and said. He was amused by this, and this girl also seemed pretty outgoing.. Or bold that is. He raised an eyebrow at her comment, it was kind of funny but he couldn't honestly know if she was serious or not. He'd only caught a glimpse of her dark blue eyes before she turned around again.

He smirked, answering Demi. "I think I'll figure it out. Thanks though." he continued to look at her, "And I'm Destery.." he knew his name was odd from the looks given to him, "My parents were pretty weird." he said jokingly.

"Since we are introducing ourselves to people, I'm Lacey. Welcome to this uh- who am I kidding, how did you end up in this hell hole?" Another girl said. Her brown hair fell just around her shoulders, and she seemed nice enough as well. He smiled at that, even laughed a bit.

"Haha, well anywhere is more exciting than where I was." he replied to her. He almost didn't notice the girl who spoke up next, but when he did he couldn't help but stare.

Her hair was red, but a paler almost rose red, and it fell neatly just past her shoulder. "And I'm Darcy. It seems like you've managed to get a class with the most insane people in the school, and there's Dehlilah, too. She's not here right now, though."

He nodded, "At least they're not introverts.. I think it would've been a bit awkward." he said. They all seemed friendly, but he didn't know what to think of any of them yet really.

Lacey


Lacey smiled at Destery. She wasn't used to being so nice to people, but now was a good time to try it out. "So, after all the classes are over you should hang out with me and my best friend. It will be fun." She was referring to Jay. Just as she said that her phone buzzed and she took it out. It was Jay responding to her earlier message.

To: Jay
From: Lacey
I will try. But I did meet a new guy. And the terminator isn't that bad, he always let's me skip out so I can write. But it could just be me. :P


She sent the message and slid her phone back into her pocket. She turned towards the front and started reading her textbook. She read about two paragraphs and she got bored and closed it. She pulled out her creativity notebook which was decorated just to her liking. She opened the book and started scribbling words. Until she came up with this.


Reality
Suffering through smiles
Laughing through pain
Crying through happiness
Smiling through sorrow
Fake people
Fake Lives


She was in love with it and decided to write another.

Love
blinding lights
broken hearts
painful tears
happy laughter
strong kisses
lovely hearts


She wasn't paying attention to anything the teacher was saying because she was having too much fun writing the poems in the book.

"I wouldn't get your hopes up, I'm pretty tough to beat in that category," Jay said grinning while continuing leading Skyanna through the corridors. "Lucky you, that's the locker next to mine, little known fact, last year that locker was owned by Dylan Rowland, the most popular guy on campus. He held all the best parties." Jay said with a half smile as they arrived at her locker, and he rapped on it gently, indicating that it was her's. "This one's your's."

"Why don't you put your stuff in there, get yourself settled and then I give you a tour of this place," Jay suggested before pulling out his phone. He had felt it buzz twice on the way to the locker area but he hadn't wanted to appear rude so he had ignored them. Scrolling through his inbox he saw the two messages were from Cara and Lacey, though he had expected as much. After briefly skimming over the messages he replied to them both.

To: Lacey
From: Jay
Definitely just you ;) Don't worry too much about me though, I got to cut PE cause I'm showing around a new girl.


To: Cara
From: Jay
Well, I hope you keep your enthusiasm up. If you're saying ugh, sounds like it's just like business, and yes it is always a good napping class. Aha small world, I'm showing a new girl around right now actually.


After he had texted the two girls back he looked back up at Skyanna, "So who's your roomie?" He asked casually leaning against the locker next to hers. He hoped she didn't get a one of the many girl at this school who had large personalities. Skyanna didn't look like someone who deal well with people like that and they could be pretty hard to get along with. He was always willing to give her a few tips about getting along with her roommate if he had any though.
