The Beginning

It's my first day at the academy since my parents left me. They thought I was a freak since I developed the ability to see and hear a conversation if I touched an object. I could morph into any type of bird and always had a pair of wings on my back and I had the power of Lumen. And apparently Lumen includes having lights beam from my hands like flashlights and the inability to take a nice hot shower. The shower never seemed to get hot enough any more since I was resistant to fire.


So, it is my first day and I was the new girl. The academy isn't for normal people like some stranger walking down the street in New York. It is for people like me who develop unnatural abilities, like Lumen. As I climb out of the taxi, I get my first good look at my future home. My eyes travel higher and higher trying to find the top of the building. When they reach the top I realize that it's not a building, but a castle that resembles the tallest church from my home town. I focus my eyes forward and walk towards the entrance where an escort patiently waits for me. She has a high blonde ponytail and has too much makeup on. She wears a work out suit as if she was about to go for a jog.

"Hello Miss Blackwood, how are you?"

The escort asks. I cringe at the sound of my last name and respond.

"I'm fine thank you. You can call me Alexis"

"Well Alexis, if you'll follow me I will walk you through your new home."

I reluctantly follow her through the insane amount of twisting hallways that consist of many gloomy classrooms. It is difficult to see the details of the walls and ground since the halls are lit dimly by torches. The gray tinted windows prevent sunlight from beaming into the rooms. When the tour ends, she asks,

"So, Alexis, do you think you can manage on your own?"

Happy to get her away and be finished with this tour, I nod my head.

"Great! Then I can show you to where you will be staying now."

'Fabulous,'

I sigh.

'Another two hour tour.'

The cold wind sweeps by as she opens the wooden door outside. Despite the fresh green grass out in front of the building, the courtyard is made up of thin dirt and hard stone paths. Matching stone walls surround the area. My escort adds cheerfully;

"Most students prefer to stay in their dormitories,"

'No wonder nobody hangs out here, it's plain out depressing.'

I trudge through the wind, my gray jacket wrapping around me.

"Ah! My headband!"

I hear her squeal as she runs to chase after it. I roll my eyes and walk inside the tall building in front of me. The entrance is tall like it would lead into a dungeon.

"Sorry bout that!"

My escort giggles from behind me. I almost jump, I thought she would still be chasing that headband around.

"Follow me to your room, please. You'll get to meet your new roommate! She's queen of the house!"

She giggles all the way upstairs.

'Even better,'

I follow her up the stairs.

'A room with a prep.'

My escort unlocks the door and screams. I peer inside the door and my eyes grow wide. Their is the queen of the house, blood from the squirrel she had been eating drips all over her lap and covers her mouth. Her fangs glisten as she licks the blood off of them. She turns and hisses at the escort.

"I told you not to bother me during feeding time, or you'll be my next snack!"

She snaps and glares at my escort. The prep runs away from the door, screaming.

'At least she's finally gone'

I think as I walk inside. A mischievous smile spreads across the queen's face as she wipes her mouth.

"What was that all about? Why are you smiling?"

She laughs a little and says;

"It's fun to scare those preppy girls."

I smile along with her.

'I think I'm going to like this girl.'

I think as I set my bag next to my bed. She stands up and holds out a blood coved hand,

"I'm Skye, queen of the house."

"Uh… nice to meet you,"

I take one of her finger tips a shake it. Then a boy's head pops through a small trap door that I did not see before. I jump back in shock.

"Who are you?!"

He has short, preppy brown hair with a faded blonde streak on his side swept bangs. His blue green eyes shine as he looks me up and down.

"I'm Nick… are you the new girl?"

Skye flips her wavy blonde hair and sighs.

"No RBH, she's the Queen of England."

"RBH…?" I ask.

"It's the nickname that I call him. It stands for Rich Boy Haircut. Isn't that right Nicky-Poo~?"

Skye smirks. Nick blushes as red as a tomato and steps through the doorway.

'Nicky-Poo…?'

I shake my head.

"Anyway, I'm Alexis. But call me Lexi,"

"Alright, I will."

Another boy says as he steps through the trap door. This one has short, dark brown hair with a bowl-like haircut. He has even darker brown eyes.

"Hey Zach."

Skye says as she tries to clean some of the blood off of herself.

'Well she's not teasing him… strange.'

"Anyone else going to pop out of that door?"

"Nope, just us." Nick answers.

"Meet you guys later."

Zach says as he and Nick walk through our door.

Skye opens up the window door to the balcony.

"Aren't we going to go eat?"

I watch as the boy's figures disappear down the hallway. I follow Skye through the balcony door.

"Yeah, I'm just waiting for the signal."

She looks down to the ground as she spreads her bat wings.

"Oh right, do you want me to carry you?"

She turns back. I smiled a little.

"No, I'm fine."

I say as I let my hawk wings show. She smiles.

"Nice wings!" And looks back down,

"Oh, there they are. Lets fly,"

She climbs up on the railing of the balcony. I look down to see two small figures riding a brown and white horse.

'Must be Nick and Zach.'

I look up to see Skye already beating her wings and soaring above them. I jump off the edge and catch up with her.

"Boys versus girls!"

She shouts through the wind to the ground.

"Loser has to buy!"

And starts flapping faster. I laugh, happy to be in the air again, and push harder to pick up my speed. It is my first day at this school, and if I can help it, I'm not going to be paying for my food.
