12. Chapter Twelve

     Sara sighed once Honey was out of sight.  "She's finally gone... Is it bad to say that I might hate her?"

     Max patted her on the shoulder.  "It's okay," my roommate tried to console her.  "We both pity you.  At times like this, you can come to our room.  Right, Sophie?"

    I tried to offer her a smile; I still felt a bit awkward around everyone in school.  It's that feeling that you get when you don't belong.  It would probably be smarter of me to try and make friends the best that I could.  "Of course."

 

     Inglewood Academy was huge. It was hidden in the middle of a wood and I doubt there was any chance I could have directed a taxi driver there because there was barely any path from the main road and to the car park. None of the students had vehicles. I supposed when they went away they simply hired a bus or with the amount of teachers, and the amount of students that actually handed in their notes for a day trip to the city, they could all squeeze in.

     I walked around in the back garden, gazing up at the giant school building with wide and stunned eyes. It was made of red bricks and looked quite old because green vine plants slithering up the sides of the wall, threatening the ancient structure to move anywhere.

     For every level in the building, windows were dug into the brick wall and students leant against them, some even setting eyes on me. I blushed and hurried away.

     Inside was more modern. I was in the recreational building and approaching the library by climbing the marble staircase up to the giant room. Students walked in groups of about three to five in and out, borrowing and returning but no one ever noticed me. I sat with my favourite book and just bent my head so I wasn't seen or recognised my anyone. I want to be the new kid, I just wanted to be the same girl on the same level back where I was with Drake and Todd. My heart leapt at the thought of them.

     I was aware when a tall figure sat down into the seat in front of me, setting up the table with text books and a laptop so perfectly I thought it might have been for a movie. I was daring enough to shoot invisible, curious eyes up at the person and regretted it immediately. It was him. Markis Darwin was sitting in front of me and burning his eyes into mine.

     "You're Sophie, right? The new girl?" His voice was just as luxurious as his looks. His scent was also overwhelming, making me want to take in bigger breaths to inhale every little spot of his soap or aftershave that I could before I got up and left to be alone again.

     I tore my eyes from him and slid the novel into my bag, fidgeting too much because I didn't know how to react to a guy like him, talking to a girl like me. The library was peacefully quiet, except for the occasional page turn. I loved the smell of books - stories urging for someone to read them. and let their magic do its job.

     "Yes. That's me ... the new girl."

     His messy blonde hair fell in front of his face as a look of surprise entered it. "Well, it's true. You are the new girl and you will be for quite a while."

     "Excuse me?"

     "I'm just saying that everyone hates you 'cause they didn't want another student to take the attention of the teachers away from themselves."

     I gathered my equipment quickly and felt my whole face and neck turn red. "And you?"

     He shrugged. I stood, disgusted with him. His piercing green eyes followed me, shooting daggers everywhere I went, and I scowled, glowering. "If you think because you're popular and all the girls want to be your sex friend, that you can bully me, you thought wrong. I have a boyfriend and have a great slap coming your way if you say another, daring word."

     He only laughed, then smirked, turned away and mumbled, "Whatever."

     I ran out of the room, my eyes too dry to shed tears and back to my dorm where I saw the strangest, most unbelievable thing in my whole life. I saw magic.
