It's almost over, Caroline thought to herself during the slow, but steady, ride to Bailey High. Sleepily staring out the window, Caroline braced herself for another day of Senior year. After 13 consecutive years of public schooling, in her eyes, she was a survivor. Many of her friends came and left Bailey High: some moved away, some left for private school, and some dropped out, but she was a fighter. They were lightweights who just couldn't handle Bailey High. Her mother, behind the wheel, refused to enroll her into the artists' prep school she wanted to go to. She wasn't really any better, but it made her feel better to think so. Her mother thought it'd be foolish to transfer during senior year. She always had a just-get-it-over-with attitude about everything, but of course, she'd been asking since sophomore year.

A luxurious black sedan pulled up to the front of the school. Caroline Stather swiftly opened the car door. After she got out and closed the door, Caroline turned to the car as though she’d forgotten something. “Bye mom…” she said, but it was pointless. Her mother had already sped off. One of these days she’s going to get a ticket, she thought, if the cops weren't too busy pulling over Aisha. In the avenue to which her mother was exiting, a policeman was writing Aisha a ticket. It was too far away to hear, but Caroline could tell Aisha was trying to dispute the ticket. Covering her mouth with her hand, Caroline laughed.

Inside the school cafeteria, Akira waited for the bell to ring. Bailey High had a policy requiring students who arrived early to wait in the Cafeteria before school started. There students could pick up breakfast and chat with their fellow students. Commandeering the usual table, Akira set down her thick backpack and steaming coffee cup. She hoped the others would group up with her here before strangers found themselves at her table. She gently laid her head down on the table. Akira was overcoming a sickness that morning, but she didn't want to skip school. She took some medicine, and let it work its magic. However, she didn't notice, until it was too late, that she'd taken Nightquil instead of Dayquil. She was already feeling drowsy and desperate enough to chug that coffee if need be.

Within minutes, Caroline entered the cafeteria and sat across from the sleeping Akira at their table. Caroline tapped her shoulder until Akira woke up. "What?" Akira asked aggressively. "Sorry, did we have any homework for AP Gov'?" Caroline asked.

"Yeah, that packet she gave us on Friday, remember?" Akira managed. Of course, Caroline can hardly remember her lefts from her rights. In all honesty, she intended to do the assignment, but she procrastinated until she forgot all about it. A five page packet with short-answer, critical-thinking questions at the back should be easy for someone like Caroline Stather to finish before class started, so there was nothing to worry about, except history was her kryptonite. Her big brain couldn't just logic its way through like in math and reading; she had to actually study at least a little. "My goodness, you're right!" Caroline realized. She anxiously sifted through her backpack full of junk, eventually finding the packet buried in one of her binders.

"Want some coffee?" Akira offered. She had every intention of spreading her sickness. "No thanks," Caroline smoothly replied, "I like to wake up au naturel." She would have continued to say that caffeine stunts your growth, but it would be a weak argument considering: Akira was taller than her. Akira chuckled, "whatever." Now Caroline was hard at work trying to fight the clock. There was nothing more to say, so Akira laid her head down for another deep sleep.

Namwoo was busy scribbling down some equations and solutions she didn't understand off of a homework cheat site that Google happily provided her. She didn't have time to do homework because she was super busy with something super important. I should get a break from some homework for running an important blog, Twitter was on fire last night and if I missed it I would've been out of the loop for eon- Namwoo's thoughts were interrupted by a screech of tires and a head to the back of a seat. "Jesus Christ, mom!" Namwoo groaned while rubbing her head from the impact.

"Sorry, dear. There was cat! I couldn't just run over it!"

"You know what mom, it's fine. I'm like two blocks away from school. I can walk it from here, wouldn't want you to be late," Before her mother could protest, Namwoo had already slipped her textbook her calculus homework and binder insider her book bag, also giving her mother a quick kiss on the check, and stepped out of the car. Namwoo hated cars anyway, they were death traps! "Now time to check that anonymous blog that spills all the tea of our school," Namwoo took out her smartphone and went to the bookmarked page of the blog. "The psychology teacher had a miscarriage?!" Namwoo put a hand to her heart. "That poor thing."

The walk to school was made much shorter with gossip at the tip of Namwoo's fingertips. She entered the school grounds with the rest of students hurriedly getting to school;presumably to get their unfinished homework done, just like Namwoo. Namwoo entered the school building and made her way to the cafeteria to get some breakfast, even if the breakfast tasted like cardboard and dishwasher fluid. At least it was edible.

Lucas sighed and looked over at his twin brother who seemed to be a little too happy about this new school. Jasper always had a strange smile on his face every time they went to a new school and to a new town. It kind of made Lucas a bit agitated.

"Dude, why are you always so happy? It's quite sickening."

Jasper rolled his eyes as he shrugged his shoulders, "Why are you always so glum? Cheer up man," he stated just before the two of them stepped into the crowded cafeteria. Jasper immediately stepped over to one of the lines, ready to get some food into his stomach. He hadn't eaten anything since lunch yesterday and quite frankly, he was starving.

Lucas followed his brother over to the breakfast line and took a glance at the substances this school was calling food. "You're seriously going to eat this crap?"

Jasper sighed at his brother and shook his head at his sour attitude, "You should know by now, food is food to me. So yeah I'm going to eat this, what did you call it? Crap? You should really boost your vocabulary."

"Whatever, I'm gonna go sit down," he stated before walking away and sliding his hands into his jean pockets.

The twins may look exactly like but they are complete opposites and not just in the way they dressed. Lucas had that bad boy look to him, leather jackets, dark, dingy clothing, jeans with holes in the knees and Jasper on the other hand had more of the clean, sophisticated look. He always wore button up shirts with an unbuttoned vest over it and either a pair of slacks or nice jeans. Jasper also always had his shirt tucked in.

In the past they were always told that Jasper got all of the good genes. He was the smarter out of the two of them, had the better attitude, where as Lucas always seemed to struggle more than Jasper in school and always had a sour, sarcastic attitude.

Tristen stood outside the school smoking a cigarette trying to convince himself to go home, but his feet wouldn't move. So he just stood there smoking and looking at the school. Tristen hated school, he always felt do confined in them and for a gypsy that was never a good thing. He finally was able to move and took a step forward and then another and another until he was through the doors and walking down the hall to where his first class would be. As he walked Tristen noticed people looking at him oddly. Right I forgot how uncool people were in this town.. Tristen thought as he stuffed his hands in the pockets if his leather jacket.

Stella was sitting at a table eating her usual breakfast of a greed apple and a huge bottle of water. She was tapping her pointer finger to the tune of an Etta James song that was playing in her headphones.
She hummed a few bars then stopped abruptly and jumped a little as someone sat down at the table as well. Stella didn't recognize the boy and slowly took her headphones off and smiled at the boy. Just as she was about to ask if he was new another boy walked up next to him and sat down, Stella blinked, she knew they were twins but it just took a second to register in her mind.
"Am I seeing double or are you two related?" She asked with a small sarcastic smile.

{Luca Earo}

Luca smiled at people as he trotted up the steps into the big school. His long brown hair was back in a slightly messy braid and a feather stuck out of the end of it, this made him look like some sort of Native American Chief. Which he technical was, his family came from a long line of Sioux chiefs.
He pulled up his sleeves when he walked through the doors, it was always to hot for him inside.
Luca made his way to the doors of his Government classroom and stood against the wall a script in his hands. He flipped through the pages memorizing his lines and only half paying attention to the people passing him by.

The very moment Lucas sat down at the table he felt someone looking at him. He glanced up from the ground and noticed was a beautiful blonde. But of course, just before he was able to say anything to her, Jasper joined him at the table with that crap he called food.

"Am I seeing double or are you related?" the blonde spoke up with a sarcastic tone. Lucas smirked at her words as he shrugged his shoulders and responded, "You're probably seeing double," he started before leaning in close to her so she could hear his whisper, "Whatever you're on, could I get some?" he questioned with a slight chuckle before leaning back in his chair.

Jasper just sat there in silence. He was never that great at speaking to attractive girls, that was always one of Lucas's strong suits. Every time Jasper would say a single word to an attractive girl, he would always stutter or sound completely idiotic.

Aisha eventually made her way into the cafeteria. She hurriedly sat next to Caroline and whipped her phone out. "Caroline, look at this." Several screens appeared on her phone, each showing a different view of the Highshcool interior and exterior. "Isn't this cool?"

"You hacked into the school Cameras?!" Caroline exclaimed. "How?" Her curiosity would rather have her ask: 'can my phone do that too?' but she feared the unknown consequences for getting caught with something like this.

"Well it's kinda like a WiFi-connection. The administrators can use their phones to watch us with their phones whenever they want, but you gotta have a certain app. And the password. I got it from the librarian's phone when she wasn't looking," going on a tangent, "Look at this, I can see everyone in the cafeteria." She giggled, "they look like ants."

"I don't think this is safe, Aisha. What if somebody catches you?" Caroline asked.

Ignoring her, "Look at this, Caroline. It's Mr. Oswald and Mr. Payne. I wish I could have sound and so I could hear what they're talking about."

Within in the empty halls of Bailey High, Allan Payne, the Dean of Academics, and Principle John Oswald were conversing about something extremely confidential just in front of the door of Mrs. Dunn's government class. "There's not need to rush this, John. We're not certain yet if it's her or not," Mr. Payne told him, "but if it's not her then an innocent girl could be-"

"Think of it this way," Mr. Oswald interrupted, "If the posts stop we know who it is. If they don't then we'll know with absolute certainty that it is the other suspect, and we still win. The Voice hasn't left us with any other options. Besides, do we really need another Asian kid who's not even good at ma-"

"John," Mr. Payne stopped him. He noticed standing behind Oswald was Lucas Earo. Oswald turned around and looked Lucas in the eye with his best death stare, without saying a word, he turned back to Mr. Payne and said, "My mistake, take care of this for me." Mr. Payne was flustered, but he composed himself enough to say, "Earo, you're supposed to be in the cafeteria right now, school hasn't started yet."

Smiling Stella held out her hand to shake the boys, "I'm Stella." She said as she leaned over the table slightly and took turns shaking the brothers hands. "Is it your first day here?" She asked pausing her music so he wouldn't lose her spot. She took a sip of water and watched the brothers. She could tell right away which one of them was the shy one. She smiled sweetly at him trying to make him a little less nervous.

Luca looked up a moment after his name was called then looked at his watch, "No chess club meeting today?" He asked a little confused, then he remembered the club never had meetings on the first Monday of the month. "Oh, I seem to have gotten my days mixed up. Sorry." Luca quickly apologized then picked up his book bag and made his way to the cafeteria. He sighed when he took a seat at the end of a table away from it's other occupants. He just wanted to learn his lines in peace before this afternoon.

Lucas glanced down at Stella's hand as she introduced herself. He placed his hand in her's and figured he'd do the same. A name for a name, that's how he was brought up. "I'm Lucas," he stated before releasing her hand and sliding his hands back into his pockets.

Jasper slowly placed his hand into her's and introduced himself as well, "J-Jasper," he answered with a nervous stutter. Not only was Stella a new person, but she was gorgeous, causing him to be more nervous around her than ever. Sometimes he wished he could be a bit more like his brother, that he would be able to have the confidence to speak to new people, speak to women. But of course, Jasper was too shy for his own good.

"Our first day," Lucas finally stated after a couple silent moments between the three of them passed. He was hoping that Jasper would break out of his shell just enough to answer her question. But apparently it didn't work that way.

Namwoo was enjoying the cardboard and typing away at her phone to update her blog, and then next thing she knows she's being dragged away by two school authorities for whatever they decided to take her for. Namwoo started to panic. She hadn't remember doing anything out of line as of late. Namwoo doesn't remember being out of line at all line in this whole entire school year before this. She doesn't think she really caused any trouble ever in fact. But her she was, in the principal's office with some girl. Namwoo thinks her name is Ikea or something. They have journalism together but that never really interacted at all so Namwoo doesn't know why she, out of all the people that could've been in here, was in here confronting the heads of the school.

"I didn't do it." Was the first thing that came out of her mouth, it was the truth after all. Namwoo doesn't know about Ikea, but she knows that she, herself, hasn't done anything; Namwoo is far too lazy to be bothersome anyway. Whatever it is, I definitely did not do it, so the obviously must be a mistake of some sort. My mother raised me correctly!" Namwoo thought she saw Ikea give her the side eye but she quickly brushed it off in favor of paying attention to the situation at hand and how she could get out of it safely.

Payne took the two students down to Mrs. Anderson's office. Mrs. Anderson was a sparkling woman whose joyous attitude radiated throughout the entire room. "Please, take a seat," she insisted. "Don't look at me like that. You're not in trouble, I promise." There were two of the comfortable chairs in front of her desk just begging for someone to sit in them. Akira threw her bag aside and assumed her seat. "Sorry if they rushed you here, I've been kind of procrastinating this. I noticed you two didn't sign up for the upcoming college trip."

"Yeah, the one to Europe," Akira added. "I didn't forget, the prices were just ridiculous." Akira's family wasn't financially challenged, but $1,499 to tour a college she wasn't even remotely interested in seemed unreasonable. Bailey high was unique in this aspect, that is, opportunities like this were few and far in between at other public high schools: to see a foreign college in person would definitely make studying abroad less intimidating.

"Well that's what I wanted to talk to you about. There are some new financial aid services..."

Meanwhile, Mr. Payne and Mrs. Sullivan were casually conversing at the door. It may have sounded like the harmless, playful chat between students. Most students loathed Payne, largely because he strictly upholds the rules. They don't realize the pressure on him to do his job, and that outside of work he's actually a great person. "No way," Lauren joked. "I would have thought he was just being friendly. But Jasmine? I would never have put those two together."

"Yeah, I mean, he really hasn't been very quiet about it. Logan brags about it all the time at the lounge," Allan added.

"Are you serious? And his wife doesn't know? Doesn't she work here too?" she asked.

"Well technically she works at the college, she just teaches some dual credit classes here..." Allan explained.
