5. A Stolen Fresh Start

I sat on my bed listening to my family sleeping. They sounded at peace and I wished that I could feel the same way. Whenever I closed my eyes I seen the girl I brutally murdered. I woke up crying the first time I seen her, soon after I became emotionless and numb. As if I was in a zombie like state, which would be more true now than ever.

When I looked over at the clock on my bed stand it read six. I decided to get up and curl my hair, trying to look more beautiful than the broken girl who I am. Trying to cover up my murder, trying to make it seem as if I was beautiful outside as I was inside. But that is impossible.

Trying to distract myself I noticed that my hair smelled like vanilla, since it was the scent of the shampoo I used last night at Mathias's house. He said that all the girls in his ghoul pack agreed they liked that scent, but personally I enjoyed coconut. I have coconut bathroom supplies, lotion, and perfume. You could call me almost obsessed with the scent but I just enjoyed it.

Sighing I continued to work on my appearance by doing my hair, putting on good make up, and wearing light coloured jeans with a white long sleeve that hung to my body in just the right way. To add a small touch I put on a red scarf and done a double take at myself in the mirror. My appearance was stunning, everyone told me I was extremely beautiful and before I became moody and... Nonhuman I have been asked to dates a handful of time. Every time I said no though, I was never the one who was looking for love.

Before I aspired to be the smarted student and to achieve scholarships so I could go to a great university and make something of myself. After the incident I didn't think that could be possible, that I should have given up. But Mathias told me last night that I should carry on as if nothing happened, to continue to do whatever I use to do. So I planned on it.

Maybe if I studied hard enough and consumed myself in school work and hopefully a job, the guilt that I will forever hold will be tamed a little bit. Quickly I grabbed my book bag and phone, then headed downstairs to the kitchen where I could smell food being cooked and people chattering. When I entered the room Ami stared at me in surprise and my mom stopped cooking. "You're actually going to school? And where's that eye patch of your?" Mom asked.

"Yes. And I don't think I need it anymore. My eye is... Better." I said. Mathias told me last night that since I ate I shouldn't have my eye turning on its own. I trusted him and so far he was true.

"That's great honey. I'm so happy you decided to carry on with a normal life." She said. I forced a smile and looked at the time.

"You know. I think I'm going to walk to school. I haven't gotten exercise in forever." I said and started to head out. Mom muttered under her breath and I put on black high heels and headed out the door. It was pretty warm out despite being winter, and I suppose it's because I wasn't human anymore. Mathias said that my temperature would be different since I fully allowed my body to transition- into a half ghoul- and adapt to the changes.

My senses were heightened and I was more aware of everything. Smiling the weather and everything else this morning started off with was amazing. Besides the murder I caused, it seemed ok. I turned on music and pressed 'Antidote'. An amazing song that I was slowly becoming obsessed with.

When I got to school people just started coming in but I surely made heads turn. It was like they haven't seen me at all, which someone might not have since I was gone for a long time. I breathed in cool air and let it relax me. "You can do this Alice. You have a fresh new start at life. Even if it was stolen. You better make the best of this." I muttered under my breath and headed inside of the school.
