The Beginning

"Sweetie, this is your first day at your new school, at least try to act like you want to be here. I know that it's hard for you since your mother passed, but I really think you'll like it here." My dad is really getting on my last nerves. I mean I'm glad that he's trying to cheer me up, but he's sending me to a school for gifted children. He says that my mom had special powers and went to this school to learn about herself. I said that I would give the school a chance, but if I didn't like it after the first week that he had to pick me up.

"Dad, I'll try to give it a chance. For you and mom. I'll see you in a year, if I actually like this school, okay?" He looked at me in his most loving way and nodded. I didn't want to cry before I even entered the school, so I opened up the car door and ran to my dad's side and waited for him to come out. As he got out of the car I gave him the biggest hug and kissed him on the cheek. "Laura, you're wasting time by standing around here. Please go in there and make some friends, I don't need you here to help me out. Just go and have fun." I looked at him for a second later and hugged him one last time before I had to leave him. He gave me an understanding smile and got back into his mustang. He would only drive his black mustang because that's the only car my mom would drive. As he was leaving, I walked towards the school entrance when someone bumped into me.

"Hey, watch where you're walking weirdo!" I looked to where the voice came from and was not very surprised at what I saw. The person that spoke was a girl about my age that was wearing a black shirt, leather pants, black converse, and a bracelet with spikes. "What the heck is wrong with you? I was nowhere near you and yet you bump into me! Has this been a bad day for you?" I asked. Instead of replying, she rolled her eyes and walked into the school. I walked in right behind her and went straight to the main office. As I entered, a woman at the front pointed to a door behind her. I guess that means I go through the door. Great. Just then the girl I ran into earlier came out of the door, and stopped when she saw me. "Cupcake, what are you doing here? I mean you shouldn't be anywhere near this stupid office." I looked at her for a moment, but pushed past her and entered the room. When I closed the door I was staring at a very serious woman that was at her desk.

"Ah, you must be Laura Hollis, I'm the Dean of Silas. That young lady you saw exit was Carmilla Kanstein, your roommate." I stood frozen for a second, but regained my posture and said, "Wait. You mean to tell me that she is my roommate? How is that possible? Can I at least have someone else? I mean she's a raging bad person!" The dean laughed and shook her head. Unbelievable. I have to be in the same room as that psycho path. Ugh. Well, the way that this is going, my dad will be picking me up really soon.

"Laura, all your stuff that was in your room at home has been placed neatly in your dorm room. Your room number is 307. Now leave me in peace." I glared at her before I left and slammed the door behind me. To my surprise the girl named Carmilla was sitting in a chair waiting for me. I soon got over it and glared at her. All she did was get up and smirk at me. This girl is getting on my nerves. As if she could read my mind, she arched her eyebrow and headed out of the office. Great. The one person that knew where my dorm was located has left. Fantastic.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written.
