The Witches Past, Chapter 5

Eden Medlin and Breann Carlson

Chapter Five:

I decided to wander around aimlessly and hoping some poor souls would take pity on me, realizing that I failed to find the professor that had agreed to show me around. Then the bell rang and all heck broke loose. People scattering and so many people walking, I think I panicked since I couldn’t find the teacher who was supposed to show me around. Needless to say, I ended up a floor down from the cafeteria. I sighed and felt like giving up, but then a miracle happened. I was poked on the shoulder.

“Um, are you lost?” The person asks. I turn around and see a girl, she has brown hair and blue eyes. I nod my head in response and I show her my schedule.

“You have first period, Health. So you go up to the cafeteria and then go up the big stairs, they are called Senior Stairs, ask anyone, go up to them, and the first classroom to your right is the health room.” I nod, getting the gist of the directions, go up the stairs to the cafeteria and then go up the “Senior Stairs,” I can ask anyone about them.

“Thank you,” I say to the girl and she nods and enters a room with Dwarfish on the door.

I hurry up the stairs I went down and I made it to the cafeteria and I began the hunt for someone to ask for the “Senior Stairs.” I find someone who seems nice, they had dark hair, and they were a bit on the short side, but they looked nice. I went up to them.

“Um, do you know what the Senior Stairs are?” I ask the girl.

“Uh, yeah, those are it.” She points to the stairs with banners hanging from them, they seemed huge.

“Thank you,” I say as I head towards the stairs and up them. I go to the first classroom I see on the right and enter it.

“Is this the Health room?” I ask the teacher, and he nods.

“There aren’t assigned seats, you can sit anywhere.” I nod and settle to the back seat that is closest to the door. I get out a notebook and a pencil and I just doodle over the first page.

“Hello.” Says someone, I assume they aren’t talking to me so I continue doodling. “I’m talking to you, the girl who’s doodling.” I look up to see a girl with almost platinum blond hair, and blue eyes. She was wearing a grey jacket, with jeans and black ankle boots.

“Oh, sorry.”

“It’s fine, what’s your name?”

“Alexandra, you?”

“I’m Mia, what are you drawing?”

“I don’t really know,” I say as I look over the page, it was just a bunch of random drawings.

“So are you new here? I haven’t really seen you around.”

“Yea, I’m new, is it that obvious?”

“You went two floors down from where you were supposed to be, it’s painfully obvious.” She deadpans.

“Are you stalking me?”

“No, I had gone through those doors to get inside the school, because I was confused on what door to enter, and I saw you there.”

“Are you a freshman too?” I ask, tilting my head a little, to indicate curiosity.

“Yeah, but I am excited to be in high school, it makes me feel a bit grown up.” She says with pep.

The tardy bell rings, and then the announcements begin, we say the pledge and then class starts, but considering that it is the first day of school, they do well with trying to get back into the groove of things.
I look down at my schedule and I see I have Social Studies next. I tap Mia on the shoulder and she turns around.

“Do you know where Social Studies is?”
