I hear friends talking and laughing, bringing up tales and memories of their summer holidays. Both Gin and Taissa are loud talkers, they drown out the rest of the conversation. I turn to the girl sitting next to me. She has light, strawberry blonde hair, and blue eyes. She looks shy. This must be Garrett’s sister.
“Hi, i’m Precious!” I say enthusiastically. This could be a chance to make another friend!
“I’m Jean,” Jean says reluctantly. She doesn’t reach my eyes, but scratches a pattern into the wooden table.
“How was your Summer?” I ask politely.
“Good,” Jean replies. She looks away, and doesn’t carry on the conversation. I frown slightly, out of worry. Did I do something wrong? Jean doesn’t talk to me for the rest of homeroom.
Out of curiosity, I look for Jean’s aura, but all I see is a black fog surrounding her. From what I know, black is not good. What is going on with this girl?
“Right, class!” Mr. Egan calls out. “To the Geo room!”
