Academy of Change

Angelica has always been the top of the CSA-- an Academy where kids learn to fight crime. But when she is eleven, everything changes with the meeting of a strange and talented girl from Oklahoma who was allowed into the Academy without enrollment. What will this mean for Angelica's cushy spot as top dog?


10. Trouble?



I knew it was going to happen. I just knew it. I knew before the man stepped in, in fact, just as I heard the knock at the door. But I never expected that it would be during class. I honestly wasn't happy, I didn't even look at Amber on the way. She just walked as though there was nothing wrong. I tried to warn her.

Headmistress Johns does not seem happy. Currently, her lips are pursed and she is rapping her fingers on her desk, clearly in deep thought. I glance over at Amber, who is sitting next to me. She is just staring at her hands. Her face is unreadable, which is odd because I'm extremely good at reading expressions, emotions, and lips.

"Angelica, Amber, do you know why you are here?" Headmistress Johns asks.

"No, ma'am." Amber replys softly, still looking down.

"It's because she was breaking the rules!" I shout as I stand, pointing at Amber, "I shouldn't be here! I was trying to teach her! Why am I here?" I sit down immediately. Amber and Headmistress Johns look at me in different ways.

"Yes, you were breaking the rules, but that is not why I called you here." Headmistress Johns starts. Amber clenches her fists and starts to stand up.

"Broke the rules?" she shouts, "We broke the rules! What rules? The rules that we can't talk on the way to class? What kind of a rule is that!! If anything, that shouldn't be a rule!" As she was yelling, I glanced outside and--wait, wasn't it sunny earlier? The sky is dark, almost like it's about to rain. There's no rain the the forecast. How odd. Amber , who seemed to have notice as well, has stopped talking and sat abruptly. Headmistress didn't even seemed fazed, just thoughtful.

"Angelica, would you step out for a moment. I need to have a word with Miss Amber." I get up, salute, and walk out. I wonder what is going on in there. I sit down and glance out the window and the sky is clear again. This day is so strange.



Okay, so I admit, I was pretty upset, but I didn't know that it would trigger the power. I know Angelica saw it. My hands started shimmering, but it was a good cover to make me look nervous. Then Margla just had to send Angelica out. I admit, my outburst was uncalled for, but really?

"Amber. Is there anything else you want to say to me?" she asks calmly, folding ehr hands in her lap.

"I'm sorry for my outburst ma'am. But I am not sorry that I meant every word." I reply meeting her gaze.

She sighs softly and-- starts laughing? She is seriously laughing at me? She stands up and walks over to me. "Oh, Miss Amber. You are probably the only person to have ever said anything like that. You, my dear, have opened my eyes. I believe we need some changes." She says as she takes my hand and firmly shakes it. "But first, Angelica should come back in. I have other matters to speak to you about. Get her, please."

The Headmistress returns to her seat as I run to the door and open it. Angelica falls backward because she was leaning against it. I can't help myself, I laugh, she glares at me, I help her up and we go sit.


A mission! I'm doing very bad cartwheels outside the girls dorm as Angelica is sitting on the bench, still stunned from the news. Headmistress Johns is honestly giving us a mission- even though I have no training. Then again, it doesn't seem that big of a mission. All it requires us to do is retrieve some sort of capsule. At least, that's how Angelica eplained it after we left. I'm so excited! The mission will be next week, so we will have time to prepare, according to Headmistress Johns.

"Angelica! What do I need to expect on the mission?" I ask (well, yell), as I stop cartwheeling

"Expect the unexpected." Angelica replys with a roll of her eyes (and a hint of sarcasm). "I just can't believe she gave us a mission, when you have no experience. And no training at that." She crosses her arms to add effect.

"I know. But Headmistress Johns thinks we can do it, so it must mean something." I say, sitting down next to her. "Besides, you can just tell me what to do. You've had training. PLus, we have a week, so surely I can get some training in. Right?" I smile as she laughs.

"Amber, you are very strange, nope, scratch that, extremely strange. Perhaps that may come in handy. Come on. Let's go." She grabs my arm as she gets up and we head toward the mission room to get supplies.



I was hoping to upload three chapters at one time, but that won't happen. I'm still trying to decide how to write out the mission. I really need to try writing longer chapters.
