5. Chapter 4: Who is she?

Micah's POV:

Today was a new day, a day to start fresh and forget about the past. These words have been going through my head all morning, but I could not yet get myself to believe them. Here I was acting like nothing was wrong driving to school like my whole pack, my family wasn't murdered.

I shook my head getting rid of the morbid thoughts. "Get yourself together Micah" my inner voice screamed,It was right. I composed my thoughts and immersed myself into conversation with my brother. I looked into the mirror making sure the other three cars were still following. When I saw they were I sped up going through the gates of my new school.

Seth and I got out of the car just as a small girl limped into the building. I normally wouldn't have given it a second thought, but something about it unnerved every fiber in my being. I felt extremely protective of the small girl. I couldn't help but wonder who she was.

My brother shook me out of my thoughts by shoving me toward the door. I gave a forced smile and started walking followed by our other friends. We walked into the school immediately going into the office to get our schedules. We were disappointed to find out only me and my brother had the same morning classes,but on the bright side we have some afternoon classes together and we're all together for lunch.

We parted ways, Seth and I going to homeroom. We ran into a small plump lady who I soon found out was Mrs. Adams, our homeroom teacher. "Hello" she said in s cheery voice "you must be the new students, what are your names? "I'm Micah" I answered confidently, "and I'm Seth" my twin said reaching out a hand for her to shake.

"My, polite ones aren't you, well come on I'm sure they're waiting for me to get back." We followed her into the classroom that was full of chattering teens. She went to stand at the front on the class clearing her throat loudly to get their attention. While she was trying to get the class to stop talking I scanned the room my eyes immediately finding the black hood of the small girl that I had saw earlier.

My brother nudged me giving me a questioning look. I ignored him and look back to the girl. From what I could see she had silver hair and very pale skin, I saw some bruises on her nose and some on the part of her cheek that was peaking out from behind the hood. I was immediately filled with rage at the thought of anyone hurting the petite girl. My fists were clenched in anger and my heart was beating fast.

My brother picking up on my rage followed my gaze. He stilled and stopped breathing for a moment. I saw his eyes scan her him getting angry as well. We both looked away as we saw her lift her head not wanting to look like creepers.

As the teacher was introducing us I felt the girls eyes on us. I finally looked up catching her gaze. I was slightly shocked to see wide purple eyes staring back at me. She looked down pulling her hood farther down and shifting in her seat. I caught a whiff of an unusual scent and lifted my nose in the air and I saw my brother do the same out of the corner of my eye.

The teacher told us to sit by a Mrs. Silvermoon, which was an uncomfortably familiar name, I don't know where I heard it though. I was shocked to see the girl whose name I now know to be Violet raise her hand shyly.

I walked to the seat right next to her and sat down facing her, my brother took the seat in front of the small girl his eyes never leaving her. I was amused that she refused to look up even when she knows we've been staring for awhile. She finally looked up her startling eyes locking on to Seth's and then mine.

Seth introduced himself and she shook his hand answering in a small voice that sounded like bells. She told us her name was Violet. "Thats a beautiful name" I complimented. She gave me a small thank you bit looked down as someone shouted "why are you guys talking to that loser?" I got very angry and I could tell my twin did to. My hands clamped onto the side of the table until my knuckles turned white.

"Because she's our friend and if we find any of you giving her trouble you'll have us to deal with" I answered. I could tell she was shocked at the protectiveness we were showing but I for one couldn't help it. I could tell she has gone through a shit load of struggles during her life and needed to be shown love. I felt I've known her all my life and that she is family.

Whoever or whatever this girl is I know she is going to change our lives and make our hearts whole again.
