Chapter 1 welcome to Gangnam High

(Areum's POV)

I lace up my doc martens and get ready for the first day of school. It's been a year since my parents died and I've finished moving all belongings in my grandparents house. My grandparents live in Gangnam, it's a pretty rich area it's not what I'm used to back home.

"Areum ! Breakfast is ready " my grandma yells. I hed down stairs and look in the mirror. This is by far the shortest skirt I've ever worn in my life , I hate skirts but in Gangnam High it's compulsory to wear them. My grey skirt , white shirt and dark blue blazer make me look like the perfect highschool student , I grab my backpack and go straight to the kitchen where I'm met with my grandparents.

"Oh Areum you look so beautiful ,just like your mother " grandpa says.
"Thanks pop's" I smile
" Are you nervous honey ?" Grandma asks. " Just a little, but I'll be fine"
" I made your favorite , pancakes !"
" You didn't have to ma"
" Oh but I did , today is a special day ! Now eat up or you'll be late for the bus" I finish my pancakes and walk to the bus stop , most of the kids in Gangnam High take their private limo's to school but not me , it's okay actually I don't mind it gives me more time to myself . I hop on the bus and pop my earphones in my ears and look at the scenery while driving to school .

After going through reception and getting all my class schedules I hed to my locker only to be met by a tall girl with pink high heels and a matching pink gucci handbag standing beside it." Hi I'm Jisoo!" She says "You must be the new girl , Areum am I right ?"
"Yea, hi " I say lowly not wanting to draw attention to the people walking by. " Well I'm here to show you around , but right now I'm quite busy why don't you hang out with me in lunch ?" At least I won't be a total loner today.
" Thanks I'll do that"
" I've gotta go see you soon Areum !"
As Jisoo leaves I turn around bumping into a tall very ,very good looking man. My books fall on the floor and he helps me pick them up very cliche I know . " I'm so sorry " I say
"It's okay it happens, hey I've never seen you around, are you a new here?"
"Yea I'm Areum , nice to meet you" I put my hand out and he pulls me into a hug . " Hahahah sorry for that but I'm more of a hug then handshake kind of guy " he smiles " But I'm Jung Hoseok , you can call me Hobi tho , maybe I can show you around some time ?"
" I'd like that very much actually" I say shyly . I mean who is gonna say no to this hot man right here ?!?!?! As I'm about speak someone beats me to it
" Hobi ! Bro, Do-ah has been looking all over for you " he says completely ignoring my existence.
" Well I don't care Taehyung , look Areum we'll talk later I have to go " he says before walking away , clearly this "Do-ah" put him in a bad mood I wonder why. When I look again I'm standing alone in the halls, looks like I've got to find Mr.Kim's class by myself then.

" Late on your first day Ms.Park?"
"Sorry sir I was lost it won't happen again."
"It better not , take a seat next to Jennie in the corner over there "
Even the teachers in this school are handsome how am I going to survive?
Me and Jennie became friends quite quickly , she's not scared to speak her mind and she's actually best friends with Jisoo so we decided to go to lunch together.

" I see you've met Jennie " Jisoo speaks
"Yea she's pretty great actually "
"Of course I am " Jennie says
We all laugh till I see a group of gorgeous girls sitting next to Hobi.
"Who are they ?" I ask pointing in the direction where they are sitting, Jisoo quickly takes my hand "Don't point like that , they might see" she says.
" And to answer your question , that girl in the Saint Laurent heels is Kim Hana, her dad owns the school and she is the school's princess."
" She's a little whore if you ask me " Jennie adds " she is dating Jungkook the one sitting next to her , he is the school's jock he is amazing in every sport there is , but books not so much , they are the school's power couple " Jisoo says . " I heard he was on steroids " Jennie is quick to say .
" That's not true !" Jisoo defends
" Anyways , the guy with the blonde hair , he is Jimin , the school's playboy and he is the best dancer there is , he has won so many awards for his dancing , Jimin and Taehyung are best friends , Taehyung the one with the grey hair , yea his a little trouble maker, he plays pranks on the girls all the time , he is also Kim Hana's step brother "
" They so fuck everyday " Jennie blurts out
" I thought Kim Hana is dating Jungkook?" I ask
" Yea and she fucks Taehyung when they get home , I heard she was forced to date jungkook anyway since her dad gambles their money away"
" Jennie stop spreading rumors we don't know the truth !"
" Whatever " Jennie rolls her eyes
" Back to what I was saying , Kim Hana has 2 best friends Do-ah and Ju-kung , Do-ah is dating Hobi and Ju-kung is dating Rosé yes they are lesbian if you're gonna ask , Rosé is Gangnam's cheerleading captain."
" Their whole friendship is fucking sus" Jennie says
" Why do you say that Jen?" I ask
" Well for starters like I said Hana and Taehyung are way too close and the way Jimin looks at Hobi is weird like he's hungry or something , Jungkook looks mad all the time and Do-ah and Hobi's realtionship is on and off so much like they should just break up and never get back together." I look up only to see Hana smiling too sweetly at me , then she stands up and makes her towards me with her 2 best friends.
" Hi I'm Hana , you must be new here I've never seen you around " she says
The more I look at her the prettier she gets , her long black hair flowing off her shoulder's, her bangs brushed perfectly over her eyebrows , her black winged eyeliner and glossy pink lips make her like a legit princess.
"Yes I am , I'm Areum nice to meet you."
Her friend Do-ah was only wearing Chanel and Ju-kung giving us the stink eye.
" I'm quite busy today , but how about you spend lunch with us tomorrow ?" Hana asked me , before I could answer Jisoo beat me to it.
" We'd love to!"
" Okay then see you girls tomorrow " she winks and walks off with her friends , her hips swaying side to side.
" What the hell Jisoo , I never agreed to eating with that bitch !" Jennie says
" Come on it will be fun , please guys I've always dreamed of this " Jisoo pleads with us . " Sounds like a nightmare to me Ji" Jennie says
" Come on Jen just one lunch please !"
" Fine , just once " Jennie finally agrees. " Why do you hate her so much Jen?" I ask
" That's a story for another day "

(Hana's Pov)

" Why did you ask them to have lunch with us Hana ?" Ju-kung asks
" Well I saw her flirting with Hobi, you wouldn't want some bitch stealing your man now would you Do-ah?"
"Oh you're evil Hana" Do-ah laughs .
" Something tells me we're about to have alot of fun with the new girl "
