"Been in Fells Hollow my whole life, yeah. And wow, that's a huge change. Were you familiar with the town before you moved here, or was it a huge jump in the dark?"

Permalink

"Huge jump in the dark, yeah. Moved in with my aunt."

Permalink

"Have you seen much of the town? There's some interesting historical things, if you're into that. The town is pretty old, lots of history. Plus we have the lake, we go down about once a month and hang out there," she pauses and hmms, "some good hiking trails too. Oh! And theres this cool spooky abandoned house that's a popular spot for parties."

Permalink

"Of course it is. I actually like historical things."

Permalink

"I'm glad! Sometimes I help out with the cleaning for some of the town museums, so I know my way around, if you want a guide. Though I might bring along my youngest sister, if you're okay with that. She's four and needs a lot of minding. She's really well behaved though, if a little precocious."

Permalink

"Do you have any siblings?"

Permalink

"My brother is living with our aunt as well."

Permalink

"Younger or older? I have an older brother and three younger siblings," she  jokingly pulls a face, "and Callie, of course."

Permalink

"Older, got a job as a Park Ranger."

Permalink

"No way! My older brother Alistair works as a Ranger too! Maybe they know each other?"

Permalink

"Heh, possibly? His name is Orpheus, but he goes by his middle name, Aaron."

Permalink

"That's a cool name. My full name is Cassiopeia. For obvious reasons I go by Cass or Cassie. Callie is Callisto. Our mom was having a moment," she laughs.

Permalink

"My mom's name is Mary Jane. You can guess why she was teased. She wanted to give us unique names and my dad had stop her from naming her Antonious or something."

Permalink

She smiles. "My mom is Elena. Her other kids have pretty normal names. There's Lainey, who she named after herself, Blake and then Quinn. Maybe she got it out of her system with Cal and I."

Permalink

"They're nice names and at least you can shorten it to fairly normal versions. What Orpheus gonna do? Ask to be called Orphie?"

Permalink

Cass laughs. "You have a point. I forfeit in the competition of silly names and cede the victory to Aaron. He will be receiving the prize in the mail."

Permalink

"I'm sure he will be honored."

Permalink

"I'm glad, it's a very shiny prize."

She walks into a classroom. "And here's our next class, English with Miss Myers."

She waves at a girl with curly hair sitting at the back, "That's my friend Juliet. Do you wanna sit with us? Best seats are far from the front, Myers is a spitter." She shudders.

Permalink

Juliet nods to him in acknowledgment and shifts down further in her seat, getting comfy.

Permalink

She leans over closer to his seat and whispers, "Myers gives out detentions at the drop of a hat, so unless you want some quality time with her, best keep to yourself during class. But I was wondering, did you want to hang out with me and my friends at lunch? I totally get it if you prefer not to, first day can be super overwhelming."

Permalink

Cass smiles in response and sits back down properly in her seat as class begins.

English happens. It's very english-y.

Permalink

How English? Very english-y.
