Chapter 2A Chapter by Cass
I waited for the bell to ring as I hung outside the classrooms.
A bunch of boys and girls came rushing over to where I was standing. I was a little scared and paranoid at first, but half the people around me were nice and chatty.
"Hi, I'm Selena. What's your name?" A tall girl with bright brown hair asked me.
"I'm Cherry. I'm new here." I replied.
"Cherry. Nice name. So...cute. And your hair, I just love!!" Selena smiled.
"Thanks." I said, twirling my finger around the tips.
A tall man came and stood over a stage near the classrooms. With all the chatter going around he couldn't get a word in edgeways. Or any ways, in fact.
"Good morning! Hello? I this thing on?" The man said, tapping on a microphone.
The kids laughed and watched as he turned the microphone on and off.
"Kids! OK, welcome to the new year. We have some new students around and I would like you all to make them feel welcome." He said. "I'm Mr Fergus, new students."
He jumped off the stage and everyone turned towards the classrooms. I was a little lost in what to do. Being new here was very difficult.
I leaned over to Selena, who was looking at me.
"What do I do?" I asked.
Selena laughed. "Show me your schedule." She commanded.
I pulled it out from the back of my backpack and handed it to Selena. I could hear her going 'Hmmmm,' and 'Uh-huh.' A few times.
"OK, follow me." She said.
I did exactly what she asked and we were pushing through the large crowd of kids and teachers. We stopped at a door and Selena waited there for...something, I'm not quite sure.
"We are in all the same classes together. Funny, huh?" Selena asked. "Right now we have to wait for the teacher, who has the keys."
"Oh," I replied.
I was a little bit more on track, but not completely. I stood with Selena for what seemed like forever, then out of the blue the teacher was unlocking the door. The rest of the class had joined Selena and I while I was waiting.
"Class, let's go inside!" Our teacher commanded.
Selena leaned in over me while we were walking inside. "This is Mr Date. Which is weird considering he has never had a date before."
I laughed and smiled. I bet Selena and I could be pretty good friends. "Is there any girl teachers here?" I asked.
"Yeah, heaps. We have one with Science, English and Maths." Selena replied.
Selena stood around the classroom, like the rest of the class. So I did the same. The class didn't move or talk or breath, I think.
"Class. Should we go over our seats?" Mr Date asked.
"Yes." The class chanted together.
"OK. Adam and Alice are in the middle row together. In fourth seats. Sophie and Jay, you are together up the front. First seats. Zack and Cherry? Your together, first row, last seats." Mr Date explained.
This went on for another few minutes. I was setting up my desk while Zack interrupted me.
"Hi, Zack." He greeted.
"I know. I heard. " I replied.
Selena was in the back row with a girl named Gemma. I was disappointed she wasn't anywhere near me.
"OK, roll call. Gemma. Rick. Zack. Sophie. Selena. Cherry. Jack. Alice. Adam..." Mr Date started.
Everyone was doing what everyone should do. Reply with a 'here.' I smiled. Mr Date was alright for a teacher. I saw a few pretty and handsome people in my class. Zack especially. He was gorgeous. I'm going to get to seat with him for the rest of the year! Woo-Hoo!!!
