4. The New Boy
"Class, today we have a new student." Mrs. Melii said in her accent. There was a shuffle of noise trying to guess whether it's a girl or boy. "His name's Cethin K'auha. Cethin please come in." Mrs. Melii said. A boy with pale skin walked in. He had dark hair that covers most of his eyes. Something about him seem familiar but I can't think of it. "Cethin you can sit next to Luci in the back. Luci's the girl next to the window in the last row." Mrs. Melii said to Cethin. He walked quietly to the seat next to me. When he walk past my seat, he dropped something and pick it up. The teacher didn't notice. When he stood up, he whispered, "D'Angelo," in my ear before sitting next to me. "Wha-" I started to said before Mrs. Melii interrupted me. "Do you have something to share with the class, Luci?"
"No, Mrs. Melii. Nothing at all." I replied turning back to my work.
"I don't think so. Now class, take out your textbook to page 54......."
The new boy in our class seems to follow me everywhere. In every class, he seems to always sit next to me. Anyway, school had ended and I was at my locker. I open it and put in the textbook that I don't need. "Hey." someone beside me said. I turn around to see the new boy.
"Oh. Hey." I replied back still putting my text book away and filing my locker. He look around at the crowded hallway that's being clear every minute. He was still there after I finish organizing my locker. "May I help you?" I asked.
"Huh. Oh um.... can I talk to you?" he asked nervously.
"Sure. What is it?" I asked.
"Never mind," he said walking away. I shrugged and filed out the school.
