Now you know, about my secret, my life and where I live, we can get this story started with ease. School starts much later than most, so everyone can enjoy their summer, in which we have a longer one too. School started September 15th, every year, and ends May 10th. Everything really started at November 23rd, when a new student arrived, and nothing was known about him, but his name! The office doesn’t really know either, and it is really weird that he could even get in without that information.
He seemed to also be the smartest out of everyone in the class, and to me that means competition. And he’s not in just one class, but four, in history, math, gym, and homeroom. As the best student in each of them, you should know that no one has beaten me, or got even close in nine years, but this kid is close, and way too close to start relaxing back in work again. In gym, I’m the best, because of my shape-shifting, I’m not only faster, but much stronger in every part of my body. With this new student, I’m having a hard time keeping the top, than before. I may be smart, tough and competitive, but I don’t like being beaten, at all!
Like everyone else, all I know is that this mysterious boy who mainly wears black and leather coat is purposely trying to keep who he is a secret. His name is Damon Sanchez and he lives in the old boarding house at the edge of town. He is also in the same grade as me! It is one of the oldest buildings, besides the Old Courthouse. It is run by an elderly widow named Mrs. MacDoodle, who seems to know everything about the people in the town, but she doesn’t gossip.
I know I shouldn’t judge, but I like him and I don’t. I also have a weird feeling, like when your hair stands on end, or feel a shiver go down your spine. It is kind of like that, but not as bad. And he is big competition to me, and like me, he could easily become popular, but isn’t. And I thought I was the only wacko that wouldn’t want to be popular. I like him, like every girl in the school that sets eyes on him, they think he is handsome, mysterious, and cute. But unlike everyone else, I don’t have that I love him thing, and I defiantly wouldn’t want anything to do with him. You might think that is if very funny, but it isn’t. More of insane if you ask me!
Every girl in the school is trying to make a good impression without showing it, but even their dumb boyfriends can take that hint. Most of the girls make fools of themselves trying, so that part is amusing to see. But most boys in the school, either ignore, or are not at all nice to Damon, because of that fact. Only a couple of boys are willing to be nice, or become friends with him. My friends and I of course don’t try to flatter boys much. Sophia has a football player boyfriend, one of them that is being nice to Damon. (Oh, the only kind of sports that we have that competes outside of school is football, and cheerleading other than that everyone does gym.)
Boys are just someone that you’ll need to entertain, and something that will drag you doesn’t to where ever you go. I would hate to have that, and of course this person has to be understanding, whether or not he will know my secret.
Enough with the boys, now! School has been as school always was, boring, and tiresome, and an easy test in every class tomorrow, but why should I study if it is plain easy for me. I’m going to Molly’s house to sleep over, and Sophia is coming also. We are going to have a long talk, which is for sure. I’m going to take them for a walk in the forest, and I’m not going to do anything bad to my two and only best friends. I’m just going to show them who I really am, but first they must promise not tell or note what I can do to anyone. I know they don’t break promise, but if they do tell anyone, I just deny everything, and no one is ever going to believe that story. Of Three girls go out in the forest to play and then one of them shape-shifts into things, and then they run and tell. That is just like a made of story, or an old myth!
But right now I got to concentrate on the note taking we have to with this video in language arts. My one and only class where I don’t have him in the same class! Oh, I don’t want to do this, not only is the movie awful, but who really cares about how their faith and the chances they take to be together, and love each other. It may be romantic, but who cares, and why do we need to know this love story in the first place. I must get a good grade though so this is for that! I may love school sometime, but why do we have to learn such nonsense as this. Great, Molly is in this class too, but then she could help me out. One thing for sure is that I’m so glad this is the last class of the day, I can’t wait for all of this boring, nonsense to end. I may be smart, but I can’t stand some things, I better keep on taking notes, of the teacher might get suspicious.
Great there is the bell, I’m out of here! Oh no, here comes the popular group, I just can’t stand them. They’re always pushing people around, and thinking their better, than the rest. Yah, let’s see who gets a good job and goes to college. The bright fresh air and colors of the earth! Have I mentioned that I love being out side, there is nothing to hold you back! The colors, the breeze, and the way that it makes you forget how much you hate that Sanchez boy for giving you competition to be on the top. Why can’t I get that stupid kid, out of my big head?
Molly and Sophia are in the forest with me, and it seems colder than it usually is. Oh, well! Here is the spot where they’re going to hear the shock of their life, and where my dread of telling them is going to reality. I hope this goes fast, and smoothly! Why am I worrying so much, these are my best and only friends?! Here it goes, wish me luck!
Making them promise not to tell what they are going to witness, took a while, because they were a bit confused. And when they did, I showed them what I really was, I didn’t hear the fear, or hatefulness, or anything that I had been expecting. Just a little gasp and then understanding on how I kept it a secret so long. They even believe that there is something strange with that Damon kid. And now knowing that the super natural is really true, and is real, they are willing to believe anything. It feels so nice to get something that big off your shoulders, especially since I’ve been carting that load for a long time. They also agree that I shouldn’t tell my parents, because they are going to freak, and Mathew will eventually tell everyone with that big fat mouth of his. Even if no one believes him, he will keep insisting and will tell me to prove it. And he will drive me crazy about it. It feels so good to tell someone about that!
