The First Day of School
The New Boy's P.O.V.
As I entered the bus for my new school my eyes landed on a familiar figure staring at me with the same shocked expression. The girl from yesterday, who hit me with a stone.
Great. Just great.
She had long black hair which she neatly braided into a French braid, her brown eyes seem to hold so much of beauty. She had perfectly tanned skin and sharp facial features. She was a beauty.
Let's clear up the misunderstandings. I thought to myself.
I walked up to her and plopped down next to her.
"Hey!" I greeted.
"Um.... Hey!" She said. Her voice full of nervousness. I guess it's because of yesterday's incident.
"Stone girl? " I could see her flush at the name.
"Sorry" she said quietly. "I had to do it. It was a dare. Hope it didn't hurt much." And with that she turned towards the window, staring outside.
Both of us said nothing until the bus stopped in the campus premises.
As I was about to say something, she abruptly stood up and excused herself.
"Hey! Wait!" I called after her. She glanced over her shoulder "Yes?"
"I need your help." I said getting out of the bus behind her. "Mine? What? Why?" A confusef look on her face.
"Yeah.... You can see I'm new... So... I don't really know where to head to. Can you show me around." I asked nervousness etchwd in my voice. Why the heck am I nervous?
"Sorry.... But it's time for assembly right now and I need to report backstage." I denied them and there. God! That's embarrassing.
"Okay then..... Can you just escort me to the assembly hall."
"Yeah... Sure."She answered after thinking for a minute.
The assembly hall wasn't really special but spacious. There was an elevated stage area and on both sides of it students were gathered. Some seated some standing and chatting and some making arrangements.
"Which class? " The girl asked as she searched for someone or something in the hall.
"Um.... 11th standard."
"Okay. So you should sit in that row she pointed to one of the rows in between. So she was searching for a place for me.
"Thankyou" I said she she escorted me to my seat.
"I think I'll get going now. " She said in a hurry and looking as if she saw someone.
"See ya!" I said which she answered with just a hmm.
"Shruti... " She called out.
A girl sitting two sets ahead of me turned around with an annoyed expression.
"Why are you sitting here? " She questioned with a warning tone. Looked like they don't get along together.
The girl walked away to the other one who was wearing quit thick glasses and smacked her head. "Get up." she said with a stern voice.
"What?"She groaned. "I'm not coming"
"Yes. You are."
"No. I'm not. "
Then the Stone girl whispered something to the other one and she agreed to go god knows where.
As they were passing by, I got hold of her hand. She turned back quite shocked. Releasing her wrist, I asked "What's your name?"
A smirked forming on her face. "You'll know it yourself.... " And then she went away.
As they went I could hear the girl with glasses shooting number of questions her way. Who was he? Why does he look familiar? And even more but they were out of my hearing range.
As I sat there repeating her words in my head, I could think just one thing.
