The School Tour
They entered a round big hall with aquariums everywhere. There was a fountain in the center and the roof was decorated with different types of lights. It looked just like the entrance of a castle. The rays of sun entering the hall made it look dazzling.
There were two huge doors in the hall. One on the left side and the other on the right. Luna took all the new girls to the door on the right side of the hall. It was a transparent glass door that slid open for the girls and all of them entered a beautiful corridor. There were glass walls on each side of the corridor through which the fine Badminton Court could be seen on one side and the parking lot on the other. "It opened for us automatically right now but it's password protected in the night. You'll get to know the pass by your class prefects." She absent mindedly told.
They kept walking until they reached another hall. There were again two doors on each side of the hall and like before, they entered a door, but this time it was a crystalline door.
This corridor was wider than the last one. There were dormitory doors on each side of the corridor. Luna showed all the girls their dorms and then went her own way.
Elle entered her dorm with Natalie. There were ten beds in the dorm. Eight were already taken, while two were left free. “Hey, it’s the new girls!” Someone announced and there was cheering in the dorm.
A smile occurred on Elle’s face.
“Who wants to choose their bed first?” one of the girls asked.
“I would like to choose my bed first. I always like to be first in everything” Natalie said arrogantly. No one seemed to mind except Mia who rolled her eyes.
Natalie chose the corner bed which was right next to Sophia’s. Sophia was a chubby girl with bobbed hair. She was innocent and cute. Elle liked her.
Elle got the bed next to Clara’s. A short talkative girl who was currently roaming around in the dorm, probably cracking jokes. Almost all the girls in the dorm were unpacking their trunks including Elle and Natalie.
After unpacking their trunks, everyone introduced themselves. Lydia, Hannah, Everly, Bella, Amy, Sophia, Clara, Mia, and Natalie.
“I am Elena but you can call me Elle.” Elle too introduced herself.
“Welcome to South Hills, both of you!” all the girls said.
“Would you like a school tour, Elle?” Amy asked with her happy face.
“Oh, I would love to”, Elle was happy.
“What about you, Natalie? Would you like to come with us?”, asked Amy.
“No, why would I wanna have a tour of this poor place”, Natalie replied with a disgusted face. “My old school was far better than this one.”
“And there comes a typical daddy’s girl!” Amy whispered to Elle.
“Then why did you come here? Did someone throw you out or were you way too beastly for them too?” Mia replied with a smirk.
Elle and Amy were just about to head out when a voice came from the door. “Hey, Mia!” Everyone turned around. A girl was standing at the door smiling at Mia.
“Oh My Goodness, Olive!” Mia exclaimed, running towards her with open arms.
“Who is that?” Elle whispered to Amy in curiosity as everyone greeted Olive like an old friend.
“She’s Mia’s best friend. Always hanging around Mia. They have been best friends for 4 years.” Amy told. “Well, that explains why Mia looks so happy.” Elle thought. Olive had blue eyes with her straight, long, black hair hanging on her back.
“Is it allowed to let our hair loose?” Elle asked Amy.
“Nah. It’s strictly forbidden. But there are no rules for the first day so you can do almost anything you want.” replied Amy.
“Well, to be honest, she’s quite a fashionista or at least tries to be” Amy whispered to Elle to which Elle giggled.
There was a hall when they got out of the dorm’s corridor. It was a beautiful hall with a round table in the center with a flower pot on it.
“So, we have four halls in this school with all of them having a balcony, and believe me when I say it, each one is prettier than the last one with a more beautiful view.” praised Amy.
“Any questions about this hall?” she asked.
“Yeah. So many” answered Elle.
“Ok. Then go on” said Amy, smiling. They were standing on the balcony.
“First of all, does this hall have a name?”
“Oh, yeah. It’s called the Dorm Hall.”
“Because this is the hallway to all the Dorms in South Hills. See, the door on the right opens to the dorm corridor of grades 1 to 5 and the door on the left opens to the dorm corridor of grades 6 to 10 which is called the secondary dorm corridor.”
“Ok, this is cool. So are we allowed in the secondary dorm corridor?”, asked Elle.
“Oh, no, girl. Don’t even think about it or the matron will kill you.” chuckled Amy.
“Ok. Noted”, replied Elle, grinning.
“This is a beautiful school!” said Elle when they reached the main Hall.
“No doubt at all”, Amy said as they stood in the center of the hall.
“Okay, so... This is the Entrance Hall. As you know, the door to the right is for the Dorm Hall while the left one opens to the Learning Hall.”
“And where does that door open?” Elle asked, pointing to another door on the front left.
“So, change of plans.” Amy suddenly said, “We are not going to the learning hall as you’re going to see it tomorrow. We are now heading to...” Amy didn’t say any more until she swung open the door. “The Activities Hall”, She screamed excitedly.
Elle just smiled;
“Yeah, yeah, I know. You’re probably thinking that It doesn’t seem that special.” she made a sarcastic face, “But wait till you see it from the inside.” Amy transformed her face from a sarcastic one to a happy one again which made Elle laugh.
There were so many rooms in this Hall. Amy showed all the rooms to Elle. Which included the games room, the indoor and outdoor pool, common rooms, dining halls, and so on.
“Come on, girls. It’s almost time for dinner.” A teacher called from the Cafeteria.”
“We’ll be there in a minute, Ma’am,” Amy answered and kept showing Elle the hall until they were hungry enough to not be able to walk properly. So they got out of the Activities Hall after about 10 minutes and went to the dining hall
Almost everyone was there when Elle and Amy got there. “What’s for dinner tonight?” someone asked
“Mexican rice, Corn and Bell Peppers, and Beef and Salmon” Lydia read out the menu in a music tune.
Elle smiled looking at her. Looking at all of them. She was glad that she came here.
“Sounds delicious”, Clara giggled.
