Chp1- Amanda Bane
Everything seemed so peaceful, it seemed that whenever Katrina’s around everything will be fine but then came the news. It was a fine Sunday when Mom’s approval letter came, it means Mom’s promotion letter has been accepted, to promote her company, to get a higher rate of work,to take more time taken in work than taking care of her daughter, most importantly, it means I have no more time for friends. That night I hesitated if it was right to call Katrina, it was hard telling her, Katrina really liked hanging out with me,and of course i liked it too. However, Katrina called me first. “Hey, Kat.” I said softly, “Wuzzup, Amanda?” Her joyful voice came over the phone. “I have something to tell you, Kat.” I can already imagine Katrina sobbing in a distance. “Wait up, you know that my dad’s going to work in your mom’s company right?” Katrina said as her voice leaped from her usual tone to a high pitch. “WHAT?” I yelled as I try wake myself from this dream but nope, this isn’t a dream. I wouldn’t be actually surprised if Katrina’s dad or my mom made such a decision, Katrina’s dad is a total genius, so is my mom, my mom is the one who made the company ‘Magik’, not the super hero. She believe that she could bring new technology that appears like magic which brings us a better life comparing to the 21st century. For a normal human being, that is impossible, not even close to our faintest imaginations, but my mom’s brain is like made mechanical engines, she is like a computer, smart, humorous and intelligent. My dad’s a billionaire, he is the famous Mr. Bane, both of my parents never get the time to take care of me and died when I was two, so I was raised by my nanny, Granny Jo Jo. Well, back to the main point, Katrina and I can now meet even more than usual ! I am just so thrilled!
Then Katrina and I talked a lot about tomorrow, it was opening day of the Silver Leaf High School. My school is filled with bullies and geeks and geniuses all in one, it’s basically ‘High school without the musical.’ “Hey Manda, look’n good!” said a deeper grown voice. The voice came from James, my older brother, his shaggy brown hair brushed down his cheeky red face. “Hi, James.” I said as i hugged my long never seen brother. James is older than me by one years, he loves the hunger games, he just went to England for studying English Literature. Just like me, James and I want to be authors when I grow up. I greeted James as I joined Katrina to our classroom, Katrina blushed as she greeted James. I gave an wicked smirk at James and walked away to the cafeteria. “HEY AMANDA!” A shout ran across the hall, Chann Clearwater came along, Chann and Katrina are my best friends, they supported me in everything since we were in Kindergarten, Chann has a younger sister- Sarah Clearwater, she’s as old as me and she’s a brilliant swimmer. Even though, I never saw Sarah, she has always been an idol of Katrina and me.
As I walked in the Cafeteria, Katrina and I were still chatting about Sarah, suddenly I stopped cold, there a saw him , Jack Starling, the insufferable know-it-all, the boy who always raised his hand faster than me, and everybody thinks that HE’S THE WALKING ENCYCLOPEDIA! That’s just unacceptable, Jack Starling is nothing but a lazy, rude, boastful know-it-all! Katrina catches my eye and pulled my eye away from him, ” Hey Manda, we’re gonna get your revenge later, focus on the time!” she said and pulled me up to the stairs that reached to our classroom.
Later on Katrina and I were talking about how awesome would it be if our school was Hogwarts, you know, moving stairs, apparate through classrooms so we don’t have to walk endlessly. “Hey, what are you going to do in lunch?” Katrina tapped my shoulders after the History class. “Revise, revise and revise and-” “Do you have something other than that to do?” “Yeah, Revise!” I replied idly.
Later on, I soon found my self in the cafeteria with a huge stack of books. “Hey there, Nerd. Need help?” Jack Starling sneered, as he walked up, the cafeteria was crowded with geniuses, geeks, and day dreamers from every class. “Amanda!” Katrina shouted nearby, I found my chance to ignore my conversation with Jack Starling, I didn’t mean to ignore him or cautiously avoid him, he is just so annoying!
Hey gotta go now, Best wishes,
