Labby - Female

I sat in my seat by my desk, drumming my fingers against the table.
"Um...hi! My name's Jessica! Nice to meet you!"
I looked up and smiled nervously at this new girl sitting in the usually empty space in the desk in front of me.
"Urm...hi Jessica, I'm Labby."
I could practically feel this girl looking me over. I was wearing my black skirt and white blouse, complete with my black school shoes. Nothing too smart, I'm not really a smart person, after all.
"Hey Labby! I'm new here, it's nice to meet new people!"
My eyes flickered nervously towards her before going back to my drawing.

Laius - Male

I yawned, rubbing my eyes. I had had a terrible sleep, as usual.
"Good morning Labby!"
Oh yeah, Jessica.
I could see Jessica's happy face morph into confusion as she looked at my clothes.
Today, I was wearing my black trousers, my white shirt and jacket.
"You're certainly dressing different today!"
Oh, you think(?)
Felix passed my table, grinning at me.
"Hey Laius, howzit going?"
I grinned tiredly back. "Not so good dude. Didn't sleep 'till four last night."
"That's rough, dude."
Felix walked away and I could see Jessica's face even more confused.
"Laius? I thought you said your name was Labby?"
I gave Jessica the best patient look I could muster.
"My name was Labby yesturday. Today, my name's Laius."
I almost laughed at her shocked face. Boy, this was going to be tough.

Lambi - Both

I sighed as I saw Jessica approach my desk. I knew what she was going to ask, and I was not in the mood.
"What's your name today then?" Jessica asked, looking at me like I was crazy. Before she, yet again, noticed the clothes change.
I was wearing my white blouse with my black trousers, and a short-sleeved black cardigan over the top. I may have looked a little old, but Felix approved when I showed him.
"Lambi. My name is Lambi, Jessica."
Jessica looked annoyed. "What's your real name though?"
"That IS my real name."
"Well, obviously, it's not."
"I'm gender fluid, Jessica. Lambi is my name today."
"Gender fluency doesn't exist. Don't you know that?"
I grinned sarcastically. "No, actually, I didn't. Thanks for telling me(!)"
Jessica gave me a frustrated sigh, like I was the one annoying her.
I knew I didn't like this girl.

Laiken - Neither

I just plain ignored Jessica today. At least...that was the plan.
Easier said than done.
Felix came and sat beside me.
"New girl giving you grief?"
I sighed and put my head on my arms.
Felix grinned sheepishly. "Yeah, me too. She said I was 'unnatural'."
I lifted my head. I was going to kill the bitch.

"Hey, Jessica!"
Jessica turned her head to me, and frowned. "Oh, it's you."
"Hell yeah, it's me! You've been insulting Felix, haven't you?"
Jessica chose to ignore me, and instead looked me over.
"Let me guess. You've 'changed gender' again. My mum says you're just confused. That it's not real. And I looked up your friend's mental disability, and I have to say, people agree with me."
I flinched at the words 'mental disability'. How..?
I scowled at her. "Nobody insults my friend and gets away with it, bitch."

Needless to say, I got suspended.
