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.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Megan King: This book is absolutely amazing, it kept me on my toes through the entire book. I hope there is a second book. I would 10 out of 10 recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy, action or romance because it is full of all three 💕

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Deleted User: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.
