“Okay, sweetie, give mommy a kiss.”
“Mom,” I blushed. “You’re embarrassing me.”
“Aww,” mom pouted. “Come on. I won’t be seeing you for another year.”
“Alright, alright.” I sighed. I kissed mom on the cheek and smiled. “Bye mom.”
“North Side High,” mom sighed. “I can’t believe you got into one of the best school in town. How’d you do that?”
“Never mind.” Mom smiled. “I’m so happy that my daughter is entering! Not to mention it’s a boarding school, too!”
“Yeah…” I laughed nervously. “Well, I think it’s time for you to go.”
“Nonsense!” Mom said to me. “I want to meet the person who will be taking care of my daughter.”
“You know, your roommate.”
“Oh.” I sighed. “Mom, I’ll be fine, alright?”
Mom looked at me before her face softened and smiled. “Alright.” She sighs. “Bye, dear.”
I watched as mom hailed a taxi and drive away.
I quickly looked around to find the nearest bathroom.
I dragged two of my suitcases, one of which has my girl’s necessaties in it and the other, a guy’s.
When I found a bathroom, I was in a delimma for a while.
Do I go into the guy’s bathroom or the girl’s?
Ah, screw it.
I walked right into the guy’s bathroom and quickly locked the stall.
I stared into the mirror.
My long, light brown waves I replaced with a short wig that matches my hair, in case some strands of my real hair falls out. The red, sparkling dress I wore I stripped it off and wore a chest binder.
I’ve managed to buy the boys’ uniform online. I’m impressed that mom didn’t even check them when I bought them.
I took all my make up off, and wondered if it’s really worth it.
Of course it is, Jaryn.
I’ll leave my light brown eyes as it is.
I coughed a little and tried the ‘guy voice’ that I’ve been working on for weeks.
“Hey, I’m Kerith Hart.”
“Hi, I’m Kerith.”
Oh, god, no.
“What’s up? I’m Kerith.”
“Yeah? Well, hurry up, Kerith. I gotta take a shit!” Someone shouted from outside.
I stuffed my dress into my luggage and unlocked the door.
I walked out and gave the guy who’s glaring at me an apologetic smile.
He slammed the door behind, but I shrugged it off.
I looked at the boys and the girls walking into the school.
This is it. I sighed. My life starts here.
