Distant Signs



“Alright class settle down, I know it's the last day but everyone needs to calm down!" Mrs. Daniels was always so tense. She then gave up after seeing no one was listening and sat back down on her leather chair behind her desk.

 “Mrs. Daniels can we see our percentages for the end of the year yet?" Some brunette girl asked eagerly. Mrs. Daniels ignored her and continued to stare down at her palms examining each crevasse hoping it would look like she couldn't hear her. As for everyone else, they were almost about to explode. Everyone seemed just so happy. I looked at the black quartz rimmed clock, about 20 minutes left.  I pulled my black straight hair into a hairband to stall time. 

“Why are you sitting here all alone Raya? Come join us." I spun my head around to see my friend Alice standing there she had a fake smile on, like always.

“I was just finishing up some cue cards for the socials exam." Some lie that was.

“It’s the last day of school and you’re studying? Well do whatever you want, but Kyle wanted me to tell you he's having a year-end party at his place at 9:00 tonight. I'm going, I hope to see you there." She smiled then quickly turned and walked over to where Kyle was standing and a couple other people were. She flicked her long blonde hair over her shoulder then started to laugh hysterically about something Kyle said. Life seemed, almost good back then. Until everything changed.
