2. Chapter one-Jaiyana

I groaned as my alarm started beeping telling me it was time to get up. I hit the off button and let my arm slide off and hang on the side of the bed. I groaned again and kicked my thin blanket off the bed. I rolled over on my back and stared blankly at the ceiling. After a few minutes I finally got out of my semi-comfortable bed, well, more like mattress. The wood floors felt like ice under my feet as I walked over to my dresser. I took out an outfit and walked towards the door. I slowly turned the loose door knob and opened it. I silently crept down the hallway and opened the bathroom door. I closed the door behind me and locked it then I flipped on the dim light. I threw my outfit on the counter and walked over and turned the shower knob.

After my shower I got changed in the jeans and white t shirt. I took a towel and dried my blonde hair as best as I could before brushing it out. I brushed until it was tangle free and almost flat from the water. I looked at myself in the mirror. I concentrated and stripes appeared on my skin. My eyes fell over the lines as they cris-crossed up my arms and legs and came up to my cheeks. I smiled with satisfaction. I concentrated again and the stripes faded. I took my pajamas unlocked the door and walked out. Out of the corner of my eye I saw someone leaning against the wall.

"It's about time!" He complained

I whipped around and glared at him. I had never seen him at the orphanage before. He was tall, slender, and had longish dark brown hair. He wore an old fashioned Beatles shirt and sweat pants. I could see amusement in his eyes.

'Must be a new kid' I thought

I just glared and turned back around before walking back to my room. I grabbed my gray sweater off my dresser and put it on. I turned off the light and walked out my door. I dug through my sweater pocket and pulled out a tiny key. I shut the door and locked it. I walked through the hallway, down the long staircase and began braiding my hair sloppily.

As I walked outside, a cold wind blew against me. I wrapped my arms around me and kept walking. I looked up at the clear blue sky. I closed my eyes and pictured the moon shining bright in a star covered sky. The full moon was coming up soon

"I have to be ready" I muttered to myself
