Violet's POV:

I ran into class missing the bell by seconds. The teacher gave me a look but told me to take a seat. The students were laughing and calling me names. I looked around for a seat only seeing one left. It was toward the back of the class next to a pretty girl with multicolored hair.

I quickly got to my seat immediately pulling out my note book and began drawing trying to pull the attention away from me. About half way through the class I felt someone looking at me. I lifted my gaze from the detailed wolf I'd been drawing, to look around the class room.

My eyes finally rested on the multicolored haired girl sitting next to me. I gave her a small weary smile expecting to get glared at but was shocked when she gave me a wide grin. I looked away not believing another person was being nice to me. I was shaken out of my thoughts when a folded up piece of paper landed on my desk. I looked at it for a moment before unfolding it with shaking fingers. "Hi, I'm Star. What's your name?" Was written across the top in slightly messy handwriting.

I grabbed my pen in a happy daze and wrote "Violet" in my small neat handwriting and the passed it back to the multicolored hair girl who was waiting expectantly. She eagerly opened it and wrote something quickly passing it back.

I opened the note reading " That's a great name, matches you're eyes. P.S. Do you want to be friends? I wrote back hurrying as is the note would disappear and this would all be my over active imagination. Handing it back to her I saw her grin obviously please that I wanted to be friends. She shot me a warm smile and I retuned it with my own. Today finally felt like a good day.

As class ended Star walked out of class with me staying by my side lost in her own thoughts. She suddenly jumped up getting an unexpected sugar rush and said something so fast I couldn't understand.

She seemed to realize my trouble and said it again this time more slowly. "Do you want to sit with me and my friends at lunch? We all came here together so I know there pretty cool." "Sure" I answered excitedly not expecting the invite. "Great" she squealed with a content smile.

We walked to the lunch room chatting about whatever came to mind. I found out we actually had a lot in common. We liked most of the same things but where I was quiet and reserved she was loud and outgoing. When we reached the cafeteria conversations stopped and whispering started.

Some were shouting out names, while others were just pointing and laughing. I never usually came in here. I never had a lunch anyway and if fir some reason I ventured in here food and drinks were dumped and even thrown at me.

I turned to walk out not sure if I could hold the tears back but a hand shot out and grabbed my arm. I turned to see Star giving me an encouraging look. She grabbed my hand and started pulling me to a table off to the side. There were four people sitting at the table, two of which had ear to ear grins on there faces.

I was soon squished in the middle of a twin sandwich, Seth and Micah both giving me a bear hug. I wiggled around uncomfortably still not used to the physical contact. Star finally peeled the boys off me throwing an apologizing look my way. I shrugged it off and we all sat down.

"So you guys know each other" Star said in an obvious voice. We all chuckled before she continued, Well since you know the twins I'll introduced you to these two lovely people. "That is Raven Blackwood", she said pointing to a dark hair girl with bright jade eyes that were surrounded by dark makeup. Raven is what you would consider goth and had on an all black outfit.

She surprised me with a bright cheery smile. I gave her my own grin while star was introducing the boy who was sitting next to Raven. The boy had dark semi long hair with a red strip near the front and grey eyes with red flecks. Star introduced him as Phoenix Anderson. "I'm Violet" I spoke up while giving a polite smile. "Great to meet you" Phoenix said in a deep voice. I smiled to myself knowing I finally had friends.

After the introductions everyone started talking and the awkward atmosphere melted away leaving everyone in a happy buzz. We talked non stop about everything that came to mind and I found myself breaking out of my shell laughing with the rest of the group. As the bell rang I was sad to leave my new friends but that quickly reversed as I learned I had class with Phoenix.

We walked to our next lesson talking about what bands we liked. He sat next to me and we continued talking and passing notes throughout class.

It was now the end of the day and I can honestly say it was one of the best I've ever had. As I walked home I had a spring in my step knowing I had true friends who I would see tomorrow. Nothing could bring down my good mood I thought as I opened the front door, or... maybe it could I thought as I looked at the horrifying scene in front of me.
