"This town is boring as hell. I need to get my angst somewhere."

"Ah, my parents divorced when I was little and recently my brother and I started getting touch with my father side of the family."

Permalink

"But that's so mundane! Where's all the murder and betrayal?"

Permalink

"You could read a suitably appealing novel or something?"

Permalink

"Nah. I'd rather manufacture my own entertainment. You mentioned a brother. Is he starting today too?"

Permalink

"Ah, no, already graduated high school."

"That's too bad, we need more fresh blood." She pauses in front of a classroom. "This should be you, but you have a few minutes. Questions?"

Permalink

"Directions to my class after this one in case something comes up?"

Permalink

"Something won't come up."

Permalink

"Okay, good. See you later then."

Permalink

She waves, spins on her heel and strides away down the hall.

Permalink

The bell rings, homeroom happens and its all very mundane.

And then it's time for his next class.

.....there is no Callie to be found. 

Permalink

Of course. He asks someone nearby where his next class is.

Permalink

One student shrugs and then another just plain ignores him. Charming. 

And then what looks to be Callie comes rushing down the hallway towards him. She spots him and with clear relief, stops before him. 

"Sorry I'm late! Mr Brenner is the worst at letting us out at the bell, always drones on and on." She catches her breath.

"Thomas, right?"

Permalink

"Yes... aaand are you Callie's sister or did you change clothes?"

Permalink

She smiles, "Yup, I'm Cass! Though do be warned that Cal has been known to switch clothes during the day to confuse people. She's that type of person. " She rolls her eyes. 

"She totally bailed on you, I heard her talking about it during homeroom. I'm going to fill in so you aren't completely turned around today. I hope you don't mind."

Permalink

"Oh, I appreciate that. I only really going to need help the once."

Permalink

"It's no problem. I would have volunteered for it I had known that you were starting today anyway. I hope having Cal as your First Contact wasn't too unpleasant. She's pretty much the worst."

Permalink

"Huh, I suppose she could've been better, but she wasn't that much of a deviation from your typical high schooler that didn't want to be there."

Permalink

"...yeah. You really don't want to know the things she was saying about you in homeroom. Which is probably around half the school right now. I'm really sorry"

Permalink

"Charming. Does she at least has a reputation?"

Permalink

"Oh yeah, totally. Most of the upperclassmen know she's full of it. Not so much the younger students though."

Permalink

"Heh, I suppose I can work with that."

Permalink

She sneaks a peak at his schedule and then starts walking down the hallway, "So where are you from?"

Permalink

"California. San Francisco. Are you native?"
