Keep reading. A twist in my story (Song by secondhand serenade)-Skylar
I enjoyed Quintessa's song, it was soft and beautiful. It was relaxing. Her electric violin looked amazing, and she played really well. As soon as music finished I met with Scarlett again. She was talking to me about her science teacher, and how he was a dick. I laughed through most of it. When she got aggressive, she was really aggressive.
"So are we going to go outside for lunch?" She asked, looking up at me.
"I'm off to the library, I've got to get a book out that I saw earlier. Then I'll come out." I replied, smiling at her.
"I'll come with you, it shouldn't take too long. I hardly go to the library anyway." She added. I chuckled, as we walked through the doors to the library. I saw Quintessa sitting further in with one of her friends. I'd seen him around before.
"Christofer, those books arrived!" Miss O Reilly walked over to me, passing me 3 books, two on demons and angels, and another on vampires. I smiled at her, grabbing the books and placing them into my bag.
"Are you going to keep them with library, or do I have to pay for them?" I asked, closing up my bag.
"I got them for you. It's fine love. Have fun." I nodded to her, and walked further into the library with Scarlett. As I looked for the vampire fiction I was reading this morning, Scarlett went off to find a book herself. She sat near Quintessa and the other boy. Then she started talking to him.
"Success!" I said a little bit too loud. I laughed to myself as I picked up the book from earlier, and signed it out for two weeks, and joined Scarlett. "This is Quintessa," I said, motioning to Quintessa. Scarlett nodded.
"Nice to meet you. And this is Vance," she replied to me, "he's in my science."
"With your dick of a teacher?" I teased. Vance and Scarlett started laughing.
I was in the library and me and Vance were laughing about some of the books . Christofer came up to me he introduced Scarlett. She had been one of the girls who always said something to me. I wonder why she was so nice to him. She was a cow and Vance always told m she would always use him in science just for the answers while she argued with the teacher. She acted nice but she wasn’t. I noticed Chrisofer pick up a vampire book. He had found out. He knew about me and he was researching me. Why would he do that?! It’s like seeing someone disabled and going to research them because you want to know all the little bits and dissect them in some way to find out the cause. I thought he was my friend but right now he seemed just like the thing he had brought with him and he had shown her were I have lunch. In year 7 she would terrorise me and so I started having lunch in the library. Now she knew were I hid. Christofer said a joke but I wasn’t paying attention. Everyone was laughing but me. I had lots to think about; I could never trust anyone again. No matter if he was smart to challenge me or not. He was friends with my natural enemy. She had acted like my friend and when I slept at hers for her so called sleepover she had cut off most of my hair. It had grown back in no time because I was a vampire but she still tried. I hated her with a deep passion. I picked up my books and walked away leaving everyone behind me. I walked like I was a zombie; stiff and not knowing. I went out the library down the stairs and into the girls bathroom.I locked myself in leaving everyone behind me.
I noticed that Quintessa wasn't really paying attention to anything, she seemed out of it and soon she was walking away, out of the library. Vance watched her as well, and gave a somewhat signal as if to go get her back. I nodded, and I turned to Scarlett, "did you notice anything wrong with her when you came over here? She seemed...pissed..." Scarlett shrugged.
"I'm not too good figuring out everyone else," She said. I nodded, and we both got up, to go get dinner. Scarlett left the book she had grabbed on the table. She clearly can't have been that interested in it.
We sat on the benches outside again, I was picking at my sandwich, whereas Scarlett was eating her crisps. I took a sip of my sprite. "How do you know Vance then? You know, apart from being in science." Scarlett laughed.
"I've known him awhile, he's not like...one of the people I talk to. He's like you, I guess. Emo-ish?" She laughed, I sighed.
"I'm so emo it's unbelievable," I said sarcastically, winking at her. "So you know Quintessa?" I asked.
"From awhile back, in Year 7; before you came to this school. We didn't really get on too well." I nodded. But earlier in the library, she had said 'nice to meet you' to her, when I introduced them. Was she lying? I shook it off. One more lesson, and then home I thought.
I spent rest of dinner in the toilet. No one could get me out because no one apart from Vance, Christofer and Scarlett knew I was upset. Everyone else just thought someone was using the toilet. My face my make-up had run down my face leaving black marks everywhere. I got up, wiped my face and re did my make-up. Just as I finished, the bell went. I made my way to my last lesson of the day. I had Art class, my favourite. I was okay at drawing but I loved it. I walked through the corridors with my head down and thinking. I didn’t notice when some lad stuck out his leg. I fell forward but I could push myself back up. I stood up gave him a evil stare and walked away into my art class leaving everyone to fuss about being late .I stood at the back and the teacher came in. She told me were to sit first of all. I pulled out my sketch book and pencil case. Art always calmed me down more than anything and I was glad I could just sit there and draw for another hour and not have to worry.
