****Originally The secrets within but changed title, also I own all rights to my story :)****
Look at the world, yeah go on and look at it. Now tell me, What do you see? Home? Life? Secrets? Death? Anything? Well most people always see it differently. But they never see what’s right in front of them.
When you look at the world you always see the small things. You never see the big obvious things that lurk in the shadows of every dark corner .
Well some of us see it, others… don’t. You’d be surprised by ever secret, every hidden thing yet to be discovered… or never will.And I know we shouldn’t be telling you, but you ought to know.
So look at the world, that’s right look at it. Because it’s going to change forever…
Sometimes I wonder what would happen if our paths didn’t cross but others times I don’t.
We all were oblivious of each other, we all had different ‘cliques’ and we didn’t know of each others existence… all until one day.
I remember it all clearly, like when you look at a picture and remember exactly what happened.
“Your late Jacqueline” Ms. Peen says glaring at me, all though that’s way better than her disgusting mole.
“I had something to take care of” I tell her thinking of that delicious breakfast.
“Well you see in my class you have to come on time” she said coldly smiling unpleasantly.
“Well to bad for you then”
“Actually it’s to bad for you”
“You see were doing a class project and everyone got to choose their group… except you”
“ If you were early you would have got to choose who you wanted to work with but…”
“This is so unfair!”
“Now now Jacqueline” Ms. Peen warned “wouldn’t want to get into more trouble”
I opened my mouth then closed it, silently fuming. Ms. Peen grinned (first time to I bet) and looking rather happy pointed to an empty desk surrounded by two gals and a guy.
With agonized force I made my way toward the desk, trying to ignore my friends tortured glances they gave me as I made it to the desk.
I sat down and they all fell silent looking at each other. After a few awkward minutes the boy turned to me.
“Well hello” he said “what brings you to this side of town”
“Shut up milk chocolate”
I blinked, “Milk chocolate?”
“Oh, I call him that because that’s how his skin looks”
“And I love milk chocolate… a lot. That’s his nickname mine’s Wilderness and she’s Cleopatra”
“I can’t be Cleopatra because she’s Egyptian and I’m-” the girl beside me gestured to her light blonde hair and warm brown eyes “-not”
“Well your beautiful like her”
The girl rolled her eyes but grinned “ I’m Blake and this is Kaitlyn -”
"Yeah his full name's Jordan Blu Jay"
"Don't praise him he thinks it sounds cool"
"It does though" Kyle says
"It sounds like a hair product"
"Well he does have great hair"Blake said ruffling it up.
I don’t know how it happened but soon I’m smiling, but I dropped it quickly. I don’t want to do this project with them I want to do it with my friends!
Blake laughed "guys come on let's get back to work"
"Were actually doing it” I said incredulously “Yes that’s what you do in a class, work”
I had to hold in a groan. That’s what smart people are for!
“What are we supposed to be doing” "Making a horror story"
"I think it should be in the 1920’s and it’s a girl who drowns in a lake while getting eaten by alligators"
“Lovely” I muttered
As Wilderness continued I tap my foot on the ground and look at the clock. Only a few minutes or more, but I can handle that. I lay my hand on my cheek and listen waiting any second for the bell to ring.
Which might be awhile.
We got detention, yeah detention. Funny huh? It was because of a food fight. And since our cafeteria is outside the school we damaged school property. Meh!
Anyways it was an accident, honestly I didn't mean to hit her with my pasta. I was just frustrated. Blake kept rambling on and on about a book that was interesting. It's from the library (ugh and eww) and she wanted to buy it (ya know to keep)but the stuck up librarians didn't let her.
So now I'm beating up my supposed-chicken-that- the-cafeteria-ladies-made-but-it's-probably-a- poisonous-thing-to-murder-us-innocent-kids with my fork.
Then out of frustration I took a handful of pasta and threw it. Now I didn't mean for it to hit Babby (he he Babby,like babble which she does a lot which won her the name of Queen B).
And then (and now old classical music starts playing da-da-da-da-da)Babby takes her pie and throws it at me.
But! I duck and it hits Blake (da-da-da-da). Who throws it and Babby dodges it and it hits someone else. Who throws it and hits someone else. Who does the same thin and it's continued and continued(etc.)
And in the end me, Blake, Jordan, Jackie, Mikey, Irene, Larry, Gale, Lara, Serenity, and Basil all got detention. Of course Babby was the 'innocent' victim (ha!) and the rest of us get punished.
Staying after school! For a whole hour!
So here we were all scowling, covered in food, messing up the beautiful chairs.
"A whole hour"
"You started it"
"Yeah right"Serenity scoffed "I didn't even do anything"
"Sucks for you"
Blake got up "let's start cleaning the mess"
Response:All of us groaning.
Well I won't bore you with that, so let's cut to the chase.
We were all sitting in the desks talking when it started to rain...hard.
"Great, just great"Jordan moaned
"We can't walk through that"
"No we can't, I think were gonna be spending the night"
"The night!"Wilderness yelped
"Unless we get the principal"Blake suggested"Maybe he can help us"
"How"I asked "it's not he'd drive us"
"And anyway there's much too much"Wilderness muttered
"I meant like call our parents to get us or the school buses"
"Ha! How about we call our parents tell them were staying overnight and tomorrow just walk home"
"We'll get in trouble"Basil said
"If were staying overnight we'll still have to find the principal to tell him"
"I'll go"Jordan said getting up
After a few minutes later Jordan comes back empty handed.
"I couldn't find him"
"I didn't check everywhere, but I checked loads of places"
"Okay let's not panic" I said "there's eleven of us we'll split in groups of two, but one person searches alone"
"I will"Basil said
"Okay let's split up"
So I ended up with Wilderness, she's not bad she's real funny. She even got me laughing hard.
We were in the hallways now checking the classrooms.
But we still haven't found him.
"I dropped my glasses"
"I'll help you"
"No you keep on looking I'll be fine"
Wilderness nodded or...no it was nod, and went out the class to the other on the other side.
It felt like hours that I searched the floor but it was probably minutes when I finally found my glasses. Gosh! I'm not supposed to act like a blonde! I'm a brunette!
As i put my glasses on, the thunder outside was incredibly loud. And followed by it was an earsplitting scream.
Quick as a flash I followed the noise to see Wilderness lying on the ground.
"Are you okay"I said as I rushed to her. I picked her up and felt her head for bumps.
She said something inaudible.
She repeated more clearly and loudly "behind you"
I turned around to face...What was that THING!
As we both screamed another loud thunder came. Echoing throughout the whole school and drowning both of our screams.
