Moving Can Be A Good Thing

By Jupanuma


Chapter 1: First Day in a New Place

Will POV:

A moving truck pulls up to a small quiet neighborhood. Once the truck parks the door to the passenger side opens to revel a 5’8” blond boy. His smile is like the sun, while his sky blue eyes shine as he looks around. He gets out of the car and shuts the door, waiting till the door to his new house is unlocked, and he and his dad can start moving things inside.

“Will, can you open the truck so we can start bringing things in?” His father asks as he finally opens the door.

“Yeah!” Will quickly moves to the back and opens the large door. Inside is filled with boxes just waiting to be brought in. Will grabs the first box, and heads to the house. After a hundred trips or so, everything is inside now. Will can’t stop smiling. They finally got to move, and he is really excited to be here. He has never been to New York before, let alone to any big city. Will grow up in a small town on a farm.

Before Will could start unpacking, Apollo, Will’s father, came over and put a hand on his shoulder. “How about you take a break and look around town?” Will looked up at his father before nodding. Apollo smiled at him, pat his shoulder, before Will run out the door.

Once out of the house, Will decided that he will try to find the high school he was going to start attending. Google mapping it on his phone, he found that it was only a few minutes away, and started walking. The weather was a nice autumn afternoon. It felt nice on Will’s tan skin. He round the corner, and Olympus High was standing in front of him.

Olympus High had three big building, and an enormous field all wrapped around with a fancy metal fence. Will decided that he wanted a closer look, and because it was Saturday, no one would care if he snuck a peek. As he headed towards the field, he noticed that there was a little forest on the property. Shrugging, Will walked towards the forest. He expected to see different plants, maybe some wild animals, what he didn’t expect was a few kids lounging around by the forest. ‘Should I go up to them? Maybe it’s better if I turn around and leave them alone. I could see the rest of the school instead.’ Will though, but before he could make up his mind, one of the people were getting up and coming over to him.
