Personality: )Tom is your stereotypical bad boy at school, always getting into trouble, always chasing the girls and seen as a failure. But he doesn't listen to what people think of him, he knows what he's good at and what he's not. People seem to think that because he fails in class he is stupid but he is actually quite intelligent, he just doesn't care about most of his classes and feels that most of them will not help them. He prefers just to have fun but in the wrong way, he enjoys being disruptive and annoying people, its a challenge to Tom. Despite his failures academically he is a keen sportsman and is one of the only subjects that he doesn't fail in. He is especially good at boxing and is up for any fight, this sport drives him on and he wants to become a professional boxer. John hangs around with the toughest in Ridgerock. He is extremely fond of flirting with girls and over the years has used his bad boy image to keep popular with the girls in Ridgerock. He is also a big football fan and is a mad Tottenham Hotspur fan.

History: (At least 5 sentences)Tom has always been in trouble ever since he was young, as a kid he would always get into fights even with the older kids. He always hated learning and this passed through to his teen years. This is mostly down to people saying he wouldn't achieve anything, especially his dad who always treated Tom like he was nothing. Tom once got into a fight outside school and man saw him beat an older boy to the ground, it turned out he owned his own boxing gym and convinced Tom to join, ever since then Tom has wanted to be a boxer, to prove everyone wrong. When he was 14 Toms mum died in a car crash when she was picking him up from the boxing gym and it was the biggest change to his life, especially after his dad started drinking heavily and blamed Tom for her dying. Since that even Tom vowed he would prove everyone wrong about himself.

So begins...

The burning sun shone through Tom's battered and worn curtains. Tom winced as he slowly opened his eyes and started to get ready, he looked down on his clock and sighed, it was 8:30, "probably gonna be late... well no point changing a habit of a lifetime" he said to himself. There wasn't any lessons today so it didn't matter much anyway but even if there was, Tom wouldn't care. He hated school, it meant nothing to him, even more now that he was being forced to go to the academy, "bunch of pompous stuck up asses" he thought. He hated everything to do with that place, the people, the building, everything. Eventually Tom left the apartment complex and started walking to the academy. When he turned up he looked to his watch he was just on time surprisingly by 5 minutes, he looked around the large building, he'd only been there a couple of times but that was at night when he went to make trouble so he didn't get a great look of the academy. Tom walked into the dining hall and picked up an apple and stood near the door. Tom looked around the room at all the people, it was a little crowded, all the academy kids were staying away from everyone from Ridgerock high. "This is going to drag, I just hope there are some cute girls around" he thought to himself. Tom leaned against a wall and waited for the so called academy headmaster to turn up and make some sort of lame speech.

Kurt Bowman

Could Kurt not help being irresistable? as he stared into the bathroom mirror to look at himself. "Sometimes, I quite fancy myself, you know", he mumbles to himself, outloud of course for emphasis, as well as reaching the ears of his roommate which just so happened to be his younger brother Jacob who was quite use to Kurt going on and on. Jacob merely laid himself upon the couch, spreading himself all over with Kurt off it, wearing nothing above his waistline except his necklace and chain which rested against his warm body, as he then said without thought since such days like this were just like deja vu, "Yes, course".

However, today was no ordinary day, and as such, Kurt was ensuring he looked his best after taking a shower and making sure he smells nice. Kurt took the way he looked quite seriously, wearing a peach t-shirt with blue denim jeans which were held up by brown belt and metal buckle to ensure that all below his waist was tightly secure. Keeping him warm and keeping him cool, was his black leather jacket, which had quite a few uses since it was perfect when the sun was out and protected him when it was raining, as well as being the perfect thing to give a sweet girl to warm her up, unless she didn't mind a bit of Kurt Bowman love, that is.

"Well, I'm ready", he said as he licked his lips and pouted them in the mirror as if trying to seduce himself, before ending with a wink as he walked back towards Jay, "You going to get ready?". Even for this special day, and even if there were no lessons which was simply terrific, they still had to look their best. Afterall, first impressions counted, and though those from Ridgerock High like himself, despised the Academy, there could be some sweet gals among them to charm up, unless they all wore grandma classes and looked like they were from the Edwardian times. To start, it was breakfast, then introductions, then break. That....was when it was all going to get interesting, as no doubt many people will be at a rush to go to the introductions thing.

[b]"I was thinking of going like this. Who doesn't like a shirtless guy..."
, but he was stopped by the 'professional', "You just put something on and get down there. I'm going, so I can get a good sense of the place. New territory and all", and not wishing to take his brother around with him, or it would just spoil his image. His mates would pick him up as usual, though Kurt was more interested in how today was going to go, and as for breakfast, he didn't really have breakfast, his breakfast was eating an apple on the way to school. As the saying goes, 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away' and the longer the doctor was out of the way, the more chances Kurt got to play.

As per usual, he set off to school. Only this time, it was in a different direction and from a different location in the accomodations that were provided for students from Ridgerock High, away from the main campus unlike those from the Academy. Nevertheless, it did not matter what school the girls came from as long as the girls were pretty, right? as he finally entered the breakfast hall where 'business was booming' as it were, with each side separated by the side of the hall people were taking up, as if an invisible barrier were between them. Whenever a pretty girl looked about, Kurt responded back in kind with a wink, even noticing some girls he recognised from Ridgerock High; Amanda Popp and Rebecca Wilson, and those he couldn't see like Bek Sullivan, a good friend of his. However, there was a time and a place and with it being packed, he stood along the edge, then recognising Tom Harley.

He then stood beside him, nudging him slightly with his arm as he leant against the wall. Ridgerock High had a mix of different people, but they all had something in common, and with this whole thing being different, and by the looks of it, they were all sticking together. "Hey. Tom. What you think of this place so far? Apparently, they have a room for everything...", he stated. Probably not a flirting room, or a love room which was a shame. Perfect way to get his hopes up, as he checked his watch. Five more minutes, and then it was time to go to that Assembly Hall the girls down the Hall were speaking about for the Introductions and the speeches. How exciting.....not, unless some cute girls were going to speak......

Erin woke up a little late. She wasn't really excited to start at this new school. As she was getting ready her phone went off. It was a text from her brother wishing her luck. She smiled wishing he was here with her to face her first day with the evil step siblings. She walked downstairs as her siblings were climbing into the limo for their ride to school. Her step dad asked if she wanted a ride. "No I think I will just walk." The school wasn't far and she didn't want to deal with the two of them. As she walked up to the school she was in amazement. The school was beautiful, much cleaner than their last school. She looked around and you could tell a distinct difference between the High kids and the Academy kids. She was trying to find someone she new when she spotted Bek standing over with Kurt and Tom. She ran over to them. "Hey guys. what's up?" She looked over and saw Elizabeth and Robert with their friends gawking at the High kids. She rolled her eyes and turned back to her friends.

Rebecca saw Kurt enter and waved slightly - he was from her old school.
Walking down the narrow corridor that connected the gym where they ate to the Hall was packed with bodies; High students were making-out and the people from the Academy were eyeing them with distaste.
Becca could tell this wasn't going to be a laid-back, calm school year.

She was so lost in her thoughts she accidentally bumps into a tall, quite good-looking guy from her old school as well.
Looking up at him beaming she says brightly, "Sorry, oh!" She recognises him "You're Tom right?"
Her bestfriend whom had moved schools before the change - Beth - had the biggest crush on him.

Smiling again she introduced herself "Hi! I'm Rebecca, or Becca or Bee or Bubbles." She says listing all of her old nicknames.
Then she bit her lip thinking "Oh yes, there's also Becky and Bec." She nods, giggling at her many names - she did have an awful lot for one person.

Tom started to recognize some people going around the hall like Amanda Popp and Rebecca Wilson. He hadn't spoke to them much but they weren't to bad when he had, well they were always going to be better than those academy students. Tom checked his watch "when is this damn thing going to start, faster I get out of here the better." he thought to himself. Tom felt a nudge to his left, it was Kurt. Tom liked Kurt, he was a decent guy, Tom had a lot of trouble with a lot of people but Kurt had always been cool with him. He was a bit of a pretty boy but Tom could handle that. "Hey. Tom. What you think of this place so far? Apparently, they have a room for everything..." Kurt said to Tom. "Hey Kurt, good to see you. I think its just like any other school, just with more cash. Its going to be the same as High for me, i'll probably get thrown out next week" Tom joked. "I take it your checking out the girls already?" he asked Kurt. It was a silly question for Tom to ask, Kurt was always thinking of girls.

Tom saw some green hair trying to get through a crowd of people, it was that girl Bek. Tom couldn't believe that he didn't notice her in the crowd, she was so recognizable with that green hair. Some people called her weird, Tom didn't ever really know why, maybe its because shes a bit clingy with boyfriends but Tom had always thought she was ok. "Hey guys. Whats up?" she asked. "Hey Bek, nothing much just trying to get through this day. Tom looked over at the Academy students, one was looking over at him, Tom just stared back at him and the kid quickly looked away nervously. Tom just smiled to himself, "we're still the bosses" he said. It was widely known that the Ridgerock High students were the toughest out of the two schools and Academy kids didn't tend to give much trouble to the High students, it was mostly the other way round. Tom then felt someone barge into him, Tom looked down at a shorter girl he recognized her, it was Rebbeca her best friend, Beth, had a mad crush on Tom, but he was never interested in her. "Sorry, oh! You're Tom right?" she said with a bright smile. "Hi! I'm Rebecca, or Becca or Bee or Bubbles." she said. "I remember you Becca, hows Beth? I haven't seen her yet." he asked. Tom didn't know why he asked that, he didn't really care, he guessed he was just trying to be polite. Becca was a sweet girl, kind of annoying but she did always lighten up the room with her energy. Tom always thought she was cute but he couldn't ever see himself going out with her.

Rebecca started plaiting her hair, looking around the room - Her short attention span getting the best of her, even though Tom was talking to her.
Her head turns when she hears 'Beth' and looks at Tom "Oh, didn't you know? Her family moved her to that all girls school, uhm, Greenpark Girls?" She tells him, "Something about this school being too rough; I can't imagine why they think that though."
She giggles softly at her own joke and looks at Tom's reaction, she was never the best at doing so and has taken it upon herself to stare intently at others reactions - Honestly it can make her seem a little odd.

By now the room was full, many of the Academy kids she could hear were talking about how it was a 'sick joke' to put the High students in with them, she mused on whether is was why they were so rivalled- Because the High students though they were snobs.

She then turns her attention to the girl with bright green hair - Bek.
"Hey Bek," She says brightly, remembering they were in the same Chemistry class together.

Amanda Popp

Amanda finally got to the school and there was a lot of people here already. Some he knew others she didn't and tons she did not like. She ran her hands through her hair walked down the hall. She smiled at people when needed ad rolled her eyes at idiots that didn't. She was tired and just wanted to get this over with so she could hae her free time. Amanda was searching for some one to talk to because she was going to get bored, and when she gets bored she will go crazy. She spotted Right Hook Harley also know as Tom or Tommy to her. Her boreddom was going to be suppressed for now. She smiled at him and then strutted down the hall toward him.

Her and Tom had been friends for a long while. Always causing trouble and practicing football together. Almost inseperable, but she is still a girl and would like aome girl friends every once in a while. The clicking of her heels stopped when she got next to him. "Hey Tommy!" She said knowing the personal nickname she gave him always annoyed him.

Tom made his way to the hall where the introduction the school was going to be made, it was packed and there was only a couple of seats where the Academy students were sitting. Tom would rather get punched in the face than sit alongside them so he just sat on a table at the back waiting. Tom wasn't really paying attention to what was going around him, he was just wishing he could speed up time to get this day over and done with.

Then all of a sudden he heard "Hey Tommy!" Only one person called him that, despite it annoying him, Mandy. She was one of his closest friends, she would always hang around him when he was with his friends on the school field and when they would go out getting into trouble. Even though they came from very different backgrounds, where her family was rich and Tom had next to nothing, she never judged him. She would always come and watch everyone of his boxing matches that he fought in. "Hi Mandy, I thought I told you not to call me that" he joked, because he could never be mad at her even though the name did his head in.

Amanda Popp

Amanda sat in the seat next to him and rested her arms on the table top. “And I thought I told you that I don’t care.” She said with a smirk on her face. There were in the hall where the information and tour was. A few kids from the academy were here which would explain why Tom was sitting all the way in the back. She then rested her chin onto her palms and looked around bored. She would rather be at home sleeping or out partying. This was unnecessary and definitely stupid. “Is this mandatory?” She asked seriously thinking of ways to skip out. She woke up this morning expecting to be greeted by tons of kids from high, but instead she was greeted by stuck up academy children that glared at her. She couldn't wait to wreak havoc on those kids.

Marcus smiled as Rebecca got lost in her train of thought.
"Same old Becca." He thought.

"It's crazy." She said accidentally.
"Yeah I guess it is kind of crazy, it's like they want all of us to just fight or something."
He replied.

Marcus then saw another familiar face, his name was Tom. He was sitting at the back away from everyone.
Marcus smiled and just leaned back on the wall.
"You know that this introduction thing is not gonna end well right?" He asked Rebecca.

Tom just sat with Mandy and watched the large crowd in front of him. Then he saw Marcus, they hadn't really spoke much before but they knew about each other. They hadn't had any trouble with each other which was rare for Ridgerock High students. They both had heard about each others families and both had similar experiences with abusive parents so Tom had respect for Marcus and the feeling was mutual.

Tom then looked at Mandy again, she said "Is this introduction mandatory?" Tom then looked at Marcus again and remembered he was a smoker which gave him an idea. He then looked back at Mandy and she looked bored as hell and he wanted to stop that. He leaned over "It wont be mandatory in a minute, wait here." Tom went over to Marcus, "Hey Marcus can I borrow your lighter?" Marcus obliged and gave him the lighter. Tom then sneaked out of the hall and gave a mischievous smile to Mandy. Tom walked down a corridor and was looking around. Tom then went into a classroom and climbed on a table. His idea probably wasn't the greatest considering it was the first day, but it was a great idea at the same time and gave those academy kids something to think about, what was ahead for this school? The table he was stood on was under a fire detector. He pulled the lighter out and ignited it under the detector, all of a sudden the alarm went off and the sprinkler system activated causing water to fall to the ground in all the rooms, including the main hall. Tom quickly made his exit from the building and waited outside sitting on a fence, waiting for everyone to come out.

"Marcus can I borrow your lighter?"
Tom asked Marcus.
"Sure." Marcus handed it over thinking that Tom was going to have a smoke.
after he left, the sprinklers suddenly turned on and most of the academy students and even
some of the high students started screaming.

Marcus just started to laugh as he left and saw Tom outside with Amanda also laughing.
"That was great!" He said laughing and then he sighed; "I need a smoke."
He pulled one out not caring about any teachers, and grabbed a second lighter from his pocket
and lit his cigarette.

Rebecca nodded at Marcus - How could it go well? Two enemy schools were in the same room.
She then looked over to Tom and smiled, biting back a laugh as she looked around the corridor at him in the classroom.
Deciding it was best to get out before she got soaked, she walked out with Amanda.
Becca grinned at her and said, "Hey," then turned to Tom and let out a light laugh.
"Well at least the Academy know what they're in for." She winked and felt her damp hair.

She hadn't quite gotten out when the sprinkles went of and so she was pretty damp; she could only guess that the Academy students were soaked.
Looking at the guys smoking she frowns a little and turns her head - she hated it when people smoked but she masked her face so it wouldn't give away her discomfort.

Marcus looked at Rebecca and remembered she hated smoking.
He turned his head away and blew out the smoke.
"Sorry Becca." He said as he smiled.
He sat down on a bench that was behind him and leaned back.

Nathaniel groaned and ran out of the building as fast as he could. He looked up and saw High students, his eyes grew wide as he saw Becca. He knew he shouldn't have trust her or even talk to her, she was probably plotting a way for him to die or become extremely upset. He shook his head as he walked away, his shoes squelching as he did so. He huffed as he sat down and looked at his guitar, examining the damage that the water had caused. This was his favourite guitar, it was his first one he ever had. The only way to calm down was to play music and it had just been taken away from him. He ran his hand through his hair and gripped on it hard, He let his guitar fall to the ground, it was already ruined beyond repair it didn't feel as if it would survive so there was no point in taking care of it. He paced the ground for a while and then sat down with his face in his hands.

After a while he made his way to his dorm, mainly because he felt as if he had cooled down but also because he was freezing in his soaked clothes and the wind whipped against him when he was outside. It seemed that the sprinklers went off inside the dorm rooms well because his bed was soaked, luckily he had left his unpacked bag in the bathroom where there were none. He sighed as he grabbed a dry towel from the rack inside the bathroom, probably the first dry thing he had touched. He shook his hair as droplets splashed out and removed his shirt. He put on clean, dry clothes and another scarf and then he washed his face with warm water. He sighed as he stepped out of the bathroom and looked at his flooded bedroom. He grabbed his blankets and and pillows and went down to the laundry room to wash. Suprisingly no one was there, actually now that he thought of it nobody was anywhere. He shrugged it off but was still suspicous as he shoved his blankets into the dryer. He tapped random stuff around the place and eventually got into a beat which made him smile.

He hummed as he waited and eventually heard the ding. He grabbed the lot and made his way up to his room again, barely seeing where he was going and he walked through the doorway not having enough hands to close the door. He made his bed and sat on top of it.
"Seems like I'm going to have to buy a new guitar." he frowned looking up at the roof of his room.

"It wont be mandatory in a minute, wait here." Tom said before he walked away to talk to Marcus. Marcus and her weren't the best of friends, but she talked to him here and there. Amanda saw Tom take his lighter and a smile came across her face. She already knew what he was planning to do. He disappeared from the hall and then the sprinklers came on. She dashed out of the hall with the click of her heels splashing the puddles on the floor. She got out and stood by Marcus, Tom, and Becca.

Amanda's hair was soaked and her clothes were drenched, but she was laughing her ass off. The academy kids looked stupid running out like chickens with there heads cut off. Marcus lit his lighter and she took a step away from him trying to suppress her laughter. She hated the smell of cigarettes. That is all her parents would do and she wanted to shove the cigarettes down there throats. She ran her fingers through her damp hair and frowned. Now I have to blow dry my hair and change my outfit.

"Thanks Tommy. But now my hair is wet." She looked down at her white shirt and thanked the heavens that she had a tank top underneath. She did not want to reveal her bra to everyone. "And I have to change my outfit." She said dramatically pointing out how her outfit was ruined. She was happy to get out.

This whole day would be a day to remember, that was for sure. It surely was the clash of the classes with the high and 'mighty' Academy students and then the loud and boisterous guys from Ridgerock High. Sure some of them had their problems, but they were all great and lively people who just wanted to have fun, and that was important. He knew that there was tension between the two schools and what each thought of each other, but now they had to deal with it. However, what the Academy students did have, was of course their riches, so if any of the pretty girls from Ridgerock High, which he could certainly vouch with as he practically knew all the pretty girls in Ridgerock High, then maybe they could worm their way into an Academic's heart. Then again, all of that depended on how everyone related to one another.

"Hey Kurt, good to see you. I think its just like any other school, just with more cash. Its going to be the same as High for me, i'll probably get thrown out next week", Tom responded as Kurt's smile widened as well as a chuckle that followed, escaping from his mouth. Just what he was thinking, as it wasn't only the rich kids that had cash, but also the school. Those from High would surely show them how to have fun. Out of those from High, he admired Tom, despite him being a bit of troublemaker. Actually that's an understatement, but he was a great guy to be around and loved to have fun. What was wrong with that? He himself wouldn't mind skipping lessons if he had someone to spend it with. He couldn't help but laugh at his enxt response, "I take it your checking out the girls already?". "You know me all too well", he answered in jest.

His entertainment however was cut short as he felt his hair being ruffled after the sound of a familiar voice, "Still a flirt at heart, aren't'cha Kurtie Boy?". "You wouldn't have me any other way, would ya", he responded with a cheeky smile and a cheeky wink, before another familiar face joined them. Erin! "Hey guys. what's up?", she asked, as Kurt smiled, waiting till Tom finished, before he answered, "I'm doing ok thanks Erin, still looking good, and I might say, you look stunning yourself", giving her a wink, before noticing Tom and Rebecca and Amanda move away from the dining hall leaving only him, Bek and Erin.

"Time to go!", he announced, "Now which of you ladies wish to accompany me to the hall", giving just a second, before he put himself between the two of them by the waist, "Both of you, of course", before walking onwards. He hadn't done any flirting with any new girls, but being around other girls would at least spark some jealously. Sure Bek annoyed him from time to time, like when she ruffled his hair, but they were good mates, and he couldn't put his arm around Erin and leave his best mate out. What sort of a friend would he be then? as he casually entered and noticed that nothing had started yet, until in the corner of his eye, he caught Tom and a lighter in his hand with others from his old school following, which meant only one thing. "and tttttturning around", spinning his heel and then walked after them as the sprinkler system turned on, while Kurt charged down the corridors to the exit to make sure the girls didn't get wet....too much.

"You gals alright?", he asked when he got out into the sun. Kurt loved the sun, as accompanied with his blonde hair and bright face, he shone, making him even more dazzling, and very soon, other girls would come out and hopefully his looks would blind them and be drawn to him as if he was a magnet. Nothing was wrong with being a magnet was there. Course not. "Well.....enjoying the first day so far?", as he debated whether to go back inside to get even more wet since holding the girls had prevented his shirt getting wet, and he always looked best when he was wet since his clothes stuck to him. Then again, he was wearing his leather jacket and it was pretty watertight. Oh well....

Marcus was with Tom and Amanda, sitting down and watching all the academic students walk out.
"Are those umbrellas?" Marcus questioned out loud.
"They really came prepared, I didn't even know you were going to turn the sprinklers on." He said to Tom quietly.
Marcus put out his cigarette, he was still in his holiday mood as he forgot that some of the students from high
hated it when he smoked.

"Well since introductions are over... I'm gonna go get some breakfast I missed out on." Marcus stood up and walked towards the cafeteria and waved goodbye to Amanda and Tom, one hand in his pocket, and the other waving. On his way he passed Rebecca, she seemed upset. "Is everything okay, Becca?" He asked as he slowly walked passed her and stopped.

Mel could remember and cast her mind back to when they were informed that in their next year, they'd be joined by students from Ridgerock High and that Ridgerock Academy would be no longer and instead become Ridgerock School of Secondary Education. The name sounded so boring. Afterall, one only has to reference an Academy in their credentials to make them look good, but now it seemed that things had been degraded. Mel was a proud young woman who would stand up to her beliefs, to stand up to what she believed was right, and as such, she would not stand and allow these yobbo's to mess things up. Afterall, the Academy had high standards, and whether those from High believed it or not, education was important, and in the end, it was those who succeeded in education who got the higher jobs, like the Doctors who would patch them up when they get beaten up, or the lawyer who would help prevent them going behind bars. Quite ironic, wasn't it.

However, despite their ignorance, it seemed they had no choice but to put up with them, and remaining on two separate sides was not going to help one bit. As much as she would prefer to keep things separate, it would just mess things up and cause more agro like the whole event that had just taken place to avoid the introductions meeting that was planned, which was obviously now cancelled as a result. Nevertheless, Mel kept in her mind what troublesome people were like from her early days before attending Academy and as such, she ensured she was prepared for it. The most likely antic, was the fire alarm which meant the sprinkler system was activated, which meant that she'd need to be prepared for it, which she was.

Those in the Academy were there for a reason, and there was also the mighty Girl power which could not be questioned and should not be questioned. Why was it that many flocked to them. However, not all could fit under the umbrella's, but from such an endeavour, the others would come to realise that things were starting and that they too had to be prepared. Those from High had started it, clearly not wishing to make amends, so it was either fight back or make a difference, and wiping the smug off their face to show they didn't affect all the Academy students, would be a start. Not that it was an effective means, but it did keep her and her friends try, as well as Andrew who had come and stood under the umbrella with her. Thanks love", he said with a wink which made Mel smile.

"Don't worry, Mel, I got a new one today", Mel heard Janie say as she turned to her and saw her pop her own umbrella out. It was like having a younger mini-me, as she reminded her alot of herself, or at least her younger self due to their similarities. It always made her smile and made her feel all warm and excited inside since Janie was such a bubble of energy that rubbed off on her, as their group then casually walked out of the college and into the grounds. Looking up, she noticed some of the High students near the bench and by the looks of them, they were quite chilled and unaffected by the whole thing, so they must approve of the whole affair, though Mel wasn't one to point the finger unless she had the facts.

"I think I might change after school, anyone up for a beach day?", Janie suggested. Mel smiled, "That would be awesome!" seeing as it would bring a nice end to the day before returning to their rooms and getting their beauty sleep. Certainly something to look forward too while they dealt with their first day back at school, which once was very exciting, but now, well, it was hard to come up with a word to describe it as it was nice being back and being reunited with Janie and being with Andrew again, but then there was the negatives also, so overall a fairly balanced day she supposed.

It was then that Janie was motioning people to come with her, as Cassie and Brianna got the message so they could spend some time to dry themselves down, leaving Mel alone with Andrew. "Well, looks like it is just the two of us...", she commented, before leaning back gently on Andrew as she then said softly and all innocently, seeing as there was no need to act like a pillar of strength and could now rest in his arms, "...The girls have left me, and there's no introductions. Now what to do...". Initially the schedule of the day was for there to be introductions before everyone having a break and then having tours, before having lunch and then sports afterwards. Well, the school now had to put the heating on and dry up, and as for the tour, she already knew the place and every nook and cranny.

The day would now go alot smoother. Sure the silly antic had wet everybody and put a dampener on today, but one thing was for sure, it certainly woke people up to the truth and also made people dashingly handsome as she looked at Andrew and then stroked his chest gently with her free hand, seeing as the water had wet his shirt and making it stick to his skin but as a result, it made him even more hot and more alluring and with it just being them now and the day being messed up, she could surely stick to him also. It seems, thinking about it, that she should thank the guys who did it and hopefully close the gap between them. "Take me somewhere Romeo", she said softly as she looked to him and looked into his beautiful eyes, ignoring everyone else. She'd speak to them later, pondering on what their reaction would be for having an Academy student causing disruptions. Haha.

"Awh, damn, now I have to change. Stupid academy....Ey, I'm going to head back to my room and change, I should be back for breakfast", Bek announced in response once they were out. Her reaction to his hand being round her was priceless, just like his reaction to her ruffling his hair. Sure they had their disagreements and continued to annoy each other, but in the end they stuck together through thick and thin and helped one another. It was ironic that she blamed the academy for getting wet when it was Tom and his lighter. Afterall, wasn't it a coincidence that Tom is seen by his eyes with a lighter, then a few minutes later the bell and sprinkler system activates in response. All in all, least they didn't have to endure the whole lecture thing and now having everyone outside to be prey to his eyes. "See ya Bekkie", he said in response before she left, leaving just him and Erin.

Looking around, he noticed a group of Academy girls that came out with umbrellas which was quite a funny sight, though it wasn't the umbrellas that made him smile but the pretty girls. However, the fact that they were equipped with such and stuck to their own, as well as having guys with them that he did not recognise, shown they felt they were better with their own. One cute face did stick out, who had a guy with bushy eyebrows. What on earth did she see in him? Perhaps he could do something about that, as he raised his eyebrows and bit his lip with a smile on his lips. Not saying that he had a chance, but he could sure give it a shot.

Right now, he'd stick with his own and after having all that water thrown on them, it was time to make sure their own were fine. Glancing over, he saw Amanda and Tom side by side, before hearing Erin beside him, "So do you think you are going to like it here?", she asked, as she saw her squint. Most likely his fault since he couldn't stand still. "Sorry", he apologised as he done his best to put himself infront of her and the sun. If he failed, he could always turn her away from it, before addressing her question, "Oh I surely think so, the company's good for one", as he winked at her, "and besides, if we don't like it, we make it so we do", just like that stunt Tom played earlier.

Seeing how wet she was, despite him trying to rush them out to avoid getting wet, he immediately took off his leather jacket and wrapped it round her, before turning her around so her face was completely away from the sun. "That's better. Put that on and you'll feel a lot better. Hate for you to catch a cold", he said with a smile, since it would surely warm her up after all that cold water fell on her, especially with his body heat. Infact, with the heat he felt outside, it was a good job he did take it off or he'd only sweat. "So how do you feel about this place, and any idea what you want to do now?", he asked, offering her his arm to hold onto, seeing as being round a pretty girl empowered him and Erin sure was pretty. Sure the Academy girls had something, but the girls from High were indeed special.
