Chapter 1 : These people whom I would have prefered to never see coming into my life.
Does this stupid thing work? Oh I see the red light. Okay, it works, so... Hi everyone, I'm Nora Sorow. Well, I have to introduce myself... Hum.. I got black long hair and light blue eyes. I'm 5 feet, rather small, no? I look like a child sometimes. I wear especially punk lolita cloths, fashion come from Japan, but I like also Gothic lolita and Lolita Black and White. Because I'm small and wearing strange cloths, we can think that I'm bullied at school, but not at all in fact! I got a kind of superpower, I'm invisible. Well, not really. It's just that people don't see me, don't care about me. It is perfect! I can do, wear and say what I want, nobody cares ! Eileen, a really good friend, says that I am lucky. I should say "was" in fact. Yes, because one day this superpower disappeared, then my life began to become hell.
I'm in an International School, called H.I. Academy, don't ask me why, I don't have any idea. So, there are students from everywhere. I will tell you here when I understood in which difficulties I got in and what were the consequences.
PART ONE : These people whom I would have prefered to never see coming into my life.
I felt that something was not going right in this morning of October. I could not say what, but I felt it. Eileen joined me on the way to go to the Academy. She was wearing a floral dress, her curled red-hair was like a waterfall on her shoulders. I remember I was wearing a black printed pants and a black cat ear hoodie with tartan.
“Hey Nora, why aren’t you wearing you new skirt?” She asked me.
“Which skirt? Oh, I forget it this morning.”
“Really ? Are you ok? I think you odd this morning.”
“ I don't know. I have the bad impression I lost something, but I don't know what.”
“ Mmh strange.”
I nodded. Really, I didn't know. When we
arrived, I felt eyes staring at me. Just an impression ? Maybe, because when I
looked to this crowd of faces I saw any eyes on me. Suddenly, I realised that I had to get something in my locker.
“ I-I forget something in my locker.” I said to her.
“ Right, I go to the fountain and I'll meet you.”
As I was thinking how strange was this feeling, I opened my locker. Suddenly, a voice came disturbing my thoughts.
“ Hello my kitty”
I looked up, and I understood that something was really going wrong. In front of me was Seth. Okay, to replace, I will explain you who is Seth.
Seth, I forget his family name sorry, is the most popular boy of all the Academy for two reasons. One : he is handsome, really handsome. He is tanned, has yellow, yes yellow, eyes and he has a god body. Two : he is an excellent sportsman, but not only for football or bascket. No ! He is excellent in fight sport and, I have to say, seeing his sweaty bare-chested is a pleasure for all who loves handsome men. However, Seth is sufficient, egocentric and childish. He is handsome and he knows it. I'm sure that his ultimate goal is to go out with all the girls of the Academy and to “pick their flower” with at least half of them. That's why I like watching but, that's all. Anyway.
“Hum … hello ?” I said hesitating.
“Are you new here my kitty ?”
Seriously ? I'm in that f**** school since three years, and WILL YOU STOP CALLING ME “MY KITTY” ?! … Hum sorry I lost my temper. But understand, it was too weird. Well, obviously, I didn't say that, not at all.
Yes, just a little “no” with a little voice.
“ Mhh I never notice before, strange no ? Especially with you pretty face.”
Okay, he may be handsome, but that doesn't forgive everything.
“ Y-yes. W-What do you want ?” I finally asked, with all my courage.
He looked at me with eyes examiners. Thanks to god, the bell rang at this moment. I sneaked and fled far away from him and met Eileen a little further. She took my arm and we went away.
“Why Seth was talking to you ? I thought he didn't even know your existence .”
“I don’t have a single idea. It was so .. weird !”
“I agree. It’s maybe that ?”
“That what ?”
“ The thing you lost, you superpower .”
“Ohhh .. no …” I said in a sigh.
And she was right. I understood at this moment that my invisibility was gone. Too bad for me. However, it was not finish ! No … too easy otherwise. Just - what ? - two minutes after my first meeting with Seth, I met Beth, popular, rich and superficial girl.
“ Hey you !” She said as she caught my shoulder violently. “Who are you ?”
Was she kidding me ? I was in her class since 2 years.
“ Anyway, Seth is mine right ? And even if he’s flirting with other girls, he always comes back to me.”
Ok. You’re just his booty call.
“Hum.. N-no worry.” I answered in a whisper.
And I fled another time with a stunned Eileen. As I tried to understand why all this people were, suddenly, seing me, I bumped into someone.
“ I’m sorry.” I said.
“No, it’s me.”
What ?! Did I hear well ? Did that blond boy have just to apologize? Wait, it wasn’t just a blond boy, he was Gabriel, president of pupils council and called by a huge part of fan girls “The Angel”.
“Are you ok ?” He asked me with a gentle voice.
I could not tell a single word. Fortunately, Eileen took my hand, said something, and we disappeared in a cloud of smoke. She let me in front of my classroom, wishing me good chance for the following class. I was really hoping that I could have a break. But guess what, I didn’t. Just after sitting down at my usual place, alone at the third row window side. Suddenly, the teacher arrive, with Mikail ? Okay… Well, Mikail [ include here unpronounceable Nordic name ] is a tall boy with very light hair, cold eyes, cold behavior. Well, just a cold boy, popular in spite of him.
“Mikail, go sit down next to Nora
Sorow, just here.” Said the teacher while he went to his desk.
Wooow, even this old man remembered my name today ? Mikail came next to me, he stared at me and said.
“The window side.”
Understand : move little girl, I want to be next to the window. I just nodded, as usual I know, I moved. I didn’t know why, but this year was going to be very very very long.
