1. Chapter 1

BEEP! BEEP! I hit the alarm with a groan. Its time to wake up, but my body is still asleep. I kick off the covers and slowly get up. I look out the window and see the sun reaching over the mountains beyond the town. I turn and head to the shower wishing that sleep would shed my skin and anticipating the warmth of the water.

I close the door, turn on the water, undress, and step in. The water is warm but it doesn't feel right on my skin. I look at my arm and see the sign. It has been there as long as I remember. It is a circle with many small symbols inside I feel like it has a meaning but I don't know. At school  I just pass it off as a tattoo but I still get odd questions about it. I finish washing up and turn off the knob.

I look in the mirror and see my reflection with big blue eyes staring back, a person I have never fully understood. I brush out my hair. The blond strands reach past the small of my back. I put in a side braid in, that hangs over my shoulder. I walk to my room and rummage through my closet its messy but it seems it is always like that. I put on a blue shirt and, a short purple skirt. I walk to the kitchen where I meet my  family's smiles and hugs.

"Happy birthday, sweet heart", my mom shouts as she runs over and kisses me on the cheek.

                                                                                                                                   

“Gross,” I whine. "We made you a special breakfast considering you turn 15 in about 25 minutes".

" Thanks Mom,” I say sitting down. She places the plate on the table. It holds four large pancakes doused in syrup with a single candle on top. I blow it out and dig in. I check the clock, 6:46, seven minutes till the bus comes and five minutes until I'm 15.

"Bye Mom," I yell walking out of the door.  I walk around the block to the bus stop, it takes four minutes. No one is there yet. About a minute later my neighbor, Joe, arrives. He looks at me like I'm different . I turn away so he stops staring. after a minute or two he looks away, but I still feel funny, like there's something wrong with me.
