“First lesson ever at the Academy and I’m late. That’s great. Just so gosh darn great” Natalia mumbled to herself as she half ran half walked down one of the corridors trying to find the room she was supposed to be in half an hour ago. She hated new campus’s she never knew if she was going in the right direction. She did a quick turn to her right and jumped up the steps two at a time. She then took a quick left and saw the door she was looking for. Her nerves started to get the best of her. It took everything she had not to urn on her heel and head for the hills. She took in a deep breath and decided to knock first then enter. She did. As she opened the door, all 30 faces turned and looked at her. She felt herself go bright red.

“Ah, Miss Kane, glad you could make it” The teacher sat on the edge of her desk said. She too, like everybody else in this place was breathtakingly beautiful. However, she didn’t wear any flattering blood red dress like Melinda. The teacher wore simple black trousers and a blouse. Her dark red hair swung behind her back in curls.

“I was with-“ The teacher put her hand up to signal for her to stop talking.
“Derren.” She smiled at Natalia warmly. “My name is Fia by the way.” Natalia was holding her breathe and tensed up, knowing all 30 pairs of eyes where on her. She could even hear some whispering people whispering things like “That’s her...” and “She doesn’t look how I’d expect” Natalia suddenly felt self-conscious especially when she heard some of the guys whispering things like “She’s hot” The teacher carried on talking.
“Take a seat next to...“ The teacher and Natalia saw Aria waving her hand in the air, trying to stay in her seat. “Aria”

Natalia gave a tiny sigh of relief at the sight of someone familiar. She nodded in response to the teachers command and walked carefully through the seats thinking this would be a bad time to trip. She got to her seat where a smiling Aria was sat. Natalia was just about to sit down when Aria told her to stop.

“Why?” Natalia whispered genuinely confused why she couldn’t sit down. As if to answer her mental question her chair was thrown backwards into the wall behind her and Aria’s desk.

“That’s why” Aria said glaring at a couple of guys who were snickering and looking at Natalia. “Telekinesis can be a bitch”

“Yeah so can immature boys” Natalia suddenly felt something surge from inside her as she stared at the guy’s faces whose suddenly went blank. She thought it was anger but apparently not which is what she found out when she looked at Aria.

“Your eyes!” Aria said mystified. Suddenly everybody in the class where looking at Natalia’s eyes.

“What’s wrong with my eyes?”  Natalia lifted her hand as if to touch her eyes.

“They iz like fire man!” A guy wearing baggy close and a low black hat who was sat behind the snickering group of guys said. Natalia would have told him to learn better English if she wasn’t so caught up in what her eyes looked like.

“Maybe you should calm down a little?” Aria said as she pulled Natalia’s chair back to where it should be.

“Yeah man, you iz like, all freaky innit man?” The guy spoke again.

“Just shut up will you Jayz” Aria said and to Natalia’s surprise he did.

“Natalia just take a breath and calm down. The fire will die down when you’re calm.” Fia said in a calm voice. She then turned to the immature group of boys “And four people have just broken the 3rd rule of the Academy” She gave the guys a fierce glare “Apologise to Natalia. All four of you. Right now”

Jayz chirped up “Yeah, apologise to her man? She ain’t done wrong. She just got here innit? Harsh man.” He shook his head “Harsh.”

Natalia felt uncomfortable in her chair. One of the guys gave her the most fierce look she had ever received. She knew that look. He hated her with a passion. The girls at her old school had the exact same look. She tried to remember his face so she could avoid him the best she could. He had a thick blob of darker than bleach blonde hair. Natalia observed that he must be proud of is hair because to her it looked like he styled it. His hair was pulled forward like that famous guy had. What was his name? Justin Bieber? She didn’t really take much notice of the music industry anymore so she wasn’t sure if it was correct. Either way, the guy who hated her had a name. JB. That is what she was going to call him.

She snapped back to listen to the guys apology and smile after. All except for JB who still glared at her.

“I will not tolerate impoliteness in my classroom. If you are not going to apologise then get out.” Fia said with her hands on her slender hips. JB just stood up, scraping his chair along the floor. With his dark jeans tucked into his pumps, he walked out the door without a second glance at Natalia. She sighed in relief.

Fia started talking again. “I apologise on behalf of Nicholas.” She said facing Natalia. Natalia did her famous nod as a reply. Fia smiled then rubbed her hands together “Right, shall we get back to learning more History?”
