How It All Began
 Skye Taylor is every definition of perfect; perfect hair, perfect skin, perfect eyes, perfect everything, but an inperfect family.
  Skye sat on a hill in her back yard. She watched as the sun sets on the horizon; her light auburn hair flowing in the wind, her eyes glistening as the sun ever-so-carefully settled in a different time zone. But all she could hear was the sound of her parents arguing in the background. "Why do they fight all the time?" she thought as she layed head down on the grass. "Skye, get here and clean the house, you spoiled brat!" her father, Lee Hyoshi, demanded. She heaved a sigh while following her fathers command.
 That night, January 5th, 2010 was Skye's 12th birthday. All she got was a brocken key board, and her parents death.
 
 3 Years Later
Skye has switched schools for the fifth time since her parents death. Her father was a business man that has earned a lot of money, but when he died he gave all the money to Skye's aunt, Morgan Taylor, who's her mother's sister. Her father is full Korean, and her mother is American.
 She moved in with her aunt after the funeral. Ever since her aunt got the family fortune she gambled, there for they traveled a lot.
 After the accident in 2010 she hasn't talked much, and didn't have many friends. She would sing with an angelic voice that could melt anyone's heart. But it made her aunt upset to the extent of smacking her. Her aunt never liked music, and never will.
 Skye would never smile, she would always have a poker-face, but you could see the pain in her eyes. She lived a very painful life, but it always reminded her of a story her father would read to her every night when she was a child, The Life of a Flower. It told the story of a flower that held so much beauty, yet was stepped on, torn, ripped, and whithered away.
 
We're Friends?
"Ring, ring, ring!" Skye's alarm clock roared. "Hehe, first day of school, again!" she thought while getting out of bed. She lazily walked to her closet and pulled out her uniform; it was black, blue, and white. It had a black blazer with blue lining at the hem, white button up shirt, black skirt with a blue and white swirl design, white knee high socks, and black dress shoes. 
 She walked out the door of her bedroom. As she reached the kitchen there she saw a note that read,"Skye, I'm not going to be home for a few days, but when I come back this house better be clean! And I mean clean!" she set the note back down and headed out the door. Her home was within walking distance of the school, so she didn't need any public transportation. 
She got to the front gate of the academy she's attending. She walked inside of the school with no knowledge of where to go. "Hey, are you lost?" A boy who appears to be a student asked Skye. She hesitated a moment and then nodded. She is not comfortable with having conversations. "Follow me. You must be a new student if your lost that easily." He let out a low chuckle. They walked for about five minutes before stopping at the administraters office. "So, this is where you get your schedule. Well, I got to go before the warning bell rings." He says before taking off.
 Skye decided to go inside the office to get her schedule. "Oh, you must be the new student Skye."Someone exclaims behind her. It made Skye jump and fall to the ground. "Sorry I scared you; I came in late." The lady smiled sheepishly. Skye got off of the floor and dusted off the back of her skirt. She sat down as the lady gets her schedule. "Okay, so here's your schedule. I'll just have one of my best students give you a tour of the school." She smiled again. "Is she like a happy virus, or something?" Skye thought.
 Minutes later the same boy that lead her to the administrater's office came in. "So, we meet again?" He asked with a huge grin is plastered on his face. "Cole, I need you to give Skye a tour of the school." She insisted. "Okay, it will probably take at least two periods to show her, so tell our teachers we will be late." He instucted her. Amazingly she followed his command. "Wow, he must really be a good student if he has a teacher following his command." Skye thought while walking out of the office. "So, Skye is your name? That's a pretty and unique name."Cole said making you blush unknowingly. "Okay lets start with the classes you have and work our way up." He said giving her a warm smile, which made her heart flutter and speed up.
 "I have maths, science, social studies, band, and chior." Skye quietly said, but loud enough so Cole can hear. "Oh, so you do talk?" He asked with a wink at the end. She felt the feeling she had earlier. "What is this feeling?" She thought. "What is what?" Cole asked with confusion written all over his face. "Oh no, did I say that out loud?" She mentally asked herself. "Yes you did. Now what are you talking about?" Cole answered her self asked question. "Can't tell you aything I don't want to." Skye said stubbornly sticking out her tongue. "I'll make you somehow." He winked at her which made even more frustrated with her own feelings.
 After a while of walking she noticed that Cole was missing. What she didn't realize is that Cole was planning on scaring her. "Ah, oh well. He already showed me my classes." She started walking back to her classes. "Uh, she's not even worried about me." Cole thought while getting out of his hiding place. He actually felt hurt knowing she didn't worry. "Boo!" Skye screamed behind Cole. Cole screamed a little and jumped. "Hehe, I knew you were trying to scare me!" Skye said while crossing her arms. Cole just stood there dumbfounded. "But...You...Uh.."He tried to make an excuse, but couldn't because he knew he couldn't win. Skye was walking away until Cole grabbed her wrist and pulled her back. "Come on, lets be friends." Cole insisted with a soft smile. Skye hesitated a moment and then nodded. "This is my first friend since my parents died." Skye said quietly trying not to let him hear, but he did only he didn't say anything about it. "I don't know what you've been through but I will be the cell wall to your flower." Cole thought while ruffling her hair. "We're friends?" Skye said while smiling softly. "Yes we are."Cole answered returning her smile. 
 Coincidently enough they had all the same classes, so they walked back together. But Skye didn't know that Cole was the kingka of the school. What will happen next if they are spotted together?
