Both girls didn't speak at first. Darcy concentrated on her art work as much as possible; trying her hardest to ignore the glances that the mysterious new girl was giving her.
"That's cool." The girl says after a while. She was looking down at Darcy's work. Darcy stitched a small smile on her face. "Thanks."
"I'm Kodie." She smiles.
"Darcy Stylinson." Darcy returns the favour of exchanging names and gets back to her painting.
"Stylinson? Hm. Recognise that name, I do." Kodie frowns.
"I've been in a few newspapers and stuff, nothing huge." Darcy shrugs, not taking her eyes of her paper.
"I'll look it up when I get home, find out a bit more on Miss. Darcy Stylinson."
Darcy wrinkled her nose. She didn't like the sound of that. This girl was strange. Her jet black hair was highlighted blue and green at the ends and it looked like a five-year-old had gone to crazy town with a black felt-tip on her eyes. She didn't look like someone Darcy wanted to mix with.
The dismissal bell finally went and Darcy couldn't pack up quick enough. She dumped her art folder into the art cupboard and sprinted out if the room, eager to tell Lux and Tyler about Kodie.
As expected, Tyler and Lux were sat opposite each other in their form room. Darcy smiled as she sat down next to Tyler, giving him a kiss on the cheek. He instantly held her hand under the table.
"I'm so pissed!" Lux exclaims, slamming her fist onto the table. "Mrs. Cent gave me a frigging detention just for putting paper into the bin! It's ridiculous!"
Darcy giggled, "Surely you didn't just put it in the bin."
"I may have thrown it from a distance...and it may have hit her in the head but that's not the point!" The three of them erupted in laughter before their form tutor hushed the class.
"We don't have anything important to do today so please get on with some revision" just then, a girl came strutting confidently into the room. Her long, black hair flowing behind her. Darcy's stomach churned.
"Ah, you must be Kodie!" The teacher smiled. "Sit wherever you want sweetheart, we're just getting on with revision."
Darcy kept her head down, trying to keep herself hidden next to Tyler. Lux frowned, "Sup with you?"
Before Darcy could reply, she heard a sinister voice say, "I'll sit over there...next to Darcy Stylinson."
Darcy risked a look towards Kodie, who was striding towards her with a huge grin on her face, her eyes narrowed. Darcy just knew this girl wasn't as friendly as she acted.
