The girl on the bus looked at me and smiled. Hmm...Good choice.
"Hi, I'm Kristy." I said, a little to perky.
"I'm Selena. You're new here right?"
"Yeah, how did you know?"
"I live near you, my mum was going to bring around some pie as a welcome gift, but we kind of...muckd it up."
"Oh it doesn't matter I guess, the thought that counts, right?"
I didn't know what to say to that. So I just relaxed a little and hopefully she would start up the next subject. The bus was going so slow, it's like we have a whole lot of people that live here and they don't come over to the person next to them to get on the bus with them, they wait until it's directly in front of their house. This place really needs to get a bus stop.
"Hey, um...Where is the closet bus stop?" I asked.
"Oh it's a fair while a way. Further than the school. For the people that don't live as close as we do." Selena explained.
"I know why you asked though. The bus is so annoying and the people on this street don't go just next door to get on the bus, it's ricdiculous."
"You know what?! Let's not be them people. You can meet me at my house and we will hope on the bus together!"
"Ha, sounds fun! What time?"
"Uh...what's the time right now?"
"My bus comes around 8:35."
"Ok then. Deal. I'll meet you at your house every morning to go to school."
The rest of the bus ride was pretty quick. Not many other stops then we were at the school. I hadn't seen the school at all, and it's pretty big and it gave me some butterflies.
"Do you want me to show you around?" Selena asked.
"Yes please. I need to go to the office. Where's that?" I asked.
"Come with me."
I followed her to the other side of the school. I walked into the office and Selena sat in the waiting area.
The office is small, and in the center of the room there was a desk, a chair and someone on the chair. I looked at him. He wasn't as old as you would think he would be. This schools principal looks around 27-35.
"Hello, you must be Kristy Vice. I'm Mr Ray, your schools principal. We welcome all the new students very kindly. We will give you the best and make your years as a teen very comftable. Here is your class schedule and locker information. Would you like us to send someone to show you around?" Mr Ray asked.
"No thank you. I have a friend that is doing that. Thanks for all this."
"Well that's all. You're ready to start your year here!"
I stood up to leave.
"We don't have too many rules here, just to let you know. But the ones we do have you MUST follow." Mr Ray explained.
"Yes Mr Ray, of course."
I nodded and walked out of the room. Selena was still in the waiting area. Then it occured to me that she might have heard everything that happened in there.
"Thanks." Selena suddenly said.
"You called me a friend."
"You are! You were so nice to me."
"There is still loads of that to come. We still have to finish that tour though."
"Ok, let's go!" I smiled.
