6. School

A week later, we still hadn't found mam's ring, but more important than that, I still hadn't found Crystal and I was really scared. Mam and Dad noticed my weird behaviour and sat me down to talk about it. I told them that I was just bored and lonely because I hadn't made any friends yet on account of the remote location of our new home. Dad said that that would all change soon as I was to start school in just under a week. I feigned excitement but really I was dreading it. Although I was bored out of my skull at home, I would still choose that over going to a private school with snooty children and even an ugly, yet compulsory, uniform.

 

Next Monday, I was eating breakfast in an attempt to look remotely like I wanted to go to school. I faked a smile every time I caught my Mam or Dad's eye. After I finished my 'healthy' breakfast of Coco Pops, sausages and rashers, I went up to my room to be awaited by the eye-sore that was my new uniform. I was tempted to rip it up right that minute but decided not to because I would get in serious trouble with Mam and Dad. The uniform consisted of a grey shirt, a maroon blazer, grey trousers or a skirt for the girls - I hated skirts, they always went haywire and showed my knickers whenever I galloped in them - black shoes and even a maroon beret for the girls! Oh how I longed to be a boy.

 

I went to school on the bus, an agonisingly loud 20 minute journey. I breathed a sigh of relief when I stepped off the nauseating, stuffy bus. I couldn't believe that I would have to go to school like that every day for the whole year.

 

As I walked in through the double doors at the front of the school, I realised how different it was in contrast to my old school. First of all, the sheer size of the joint, the uniform and lastly, the well-behaved students. It seemed that, as soon as they entered school property, they became robots. Impeccably-behaved, perfectly-dressed robots.
