2. Food & Backstories
Now, we enter the dining hall. There are plates and utensils empty, clean.There are 3 buffet styled bars. One for sides, desserts, and the main courses with condiments. Since the net events, everyone has been riled up talking about all the new transfers into Gatewell. I am the only one from March except 2 others: Rebekah Trinfley & Kane Night. I have known Rebekah since I was 3, but Kane on the other hand, he was a different story. He was the guy who was furious, always trying to answer and be smarter than others. `OOO! I KNOW! ME!' He used to yell. If someone beat him to it, he would get up and want to slam people onto the desks. Me on the other hand, I love science and health, I just wasn't smart enough. That is when I chose to transfer over to Gatewell. We sit down to eat dinner at the tables. We are called table by table to go to the food bars. As I wait, I see a glimpse of the main courses available. Many types of meats with labels above them. I then squint to read one of the labels. In bold, sloppy lettering, it says: PORKCHOPS HERB ROASTED What in the world is a porkchop? In my CQ, we barely eat meat. They say we should go on a more vegetable diet since it provides supplements we need. Everytime I ride a train to school, we cross a farm from the Harmonious City Quarter. The days that led up to me tranferring, I spent the days reading about every single CQ. "HEY! HAZEL! Your table is at the food bar." An unfamiliar voice tells me. I jolt to the bar slowly looking for food. I got a plate of chicken accompanied with fries and ketchup. In a different bowl, I carefully place an apple & some grapes. I put all of this on a tray and sit back down. They put the drinks in separate pitchers on each table. Each with the drink name on a chalkboard base. COCA-COLA I have never heard of Cola before. I look around to see if there is water, preferably mineral based water. No water here. I sit back down with a grumpy look on my face and pour in about an inch of this so called Cola.
