Beep! Beep! A hand reaches for the alarm and presses the sleep button. A girl comes out of the covers. The girl rubs her eyes and gets out of the bed. The girl goes to the dorr drowsily and opens it. The girls goes ot the bathroom.
15 minutes later.
Girl: “It is wird dress up in regular clothing.” A woman’s voice comes form downstairs. Woman: “Kotone, come downstairs!”
Kotone: “Okay!” Kotone goes downstairs. Kotone goes to the kitchen.
K: “Hello father.”
Kotone’s dad: “Hello 10th grader. How are you?”
K: “Good. Just nervous.”
Kotone’s dad: “I know you’re English is a bit rough but don’t worry, you will do fine, and you’ll be able to pick up English. Besides it’s only for 10 months tops.”
K: “Yes father.”
Kotone’s mom: “Now your lunch…”
K: “Already packed mother.” Kotone goes to the kitchen and grabs a bento box and puts in her backpack.
Kotone’s dad: “Now go, young warrior and bring honor to us all.” Kotone’s dad smiles. K: “Yes father.” Kotone bows and runs out the door. Kotone’s mom: “She’ll do fine.” Kotone runs out the door to find a group of kids at a stop sign.
K : “Um. This where bus is? A boy turns around.
Boy1: “Yeah, what’s it to you?”
K: “Uh, can you repeat that?”
Boy 1 (yelling): “What? DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH?!” Kotone looks taken aback and scared. Another boy turns around to face Boy 1.
Boy2 (yellin): “Hey what’s your problem?”
Boy 1: “You’re my problem now punk.” Boy 1 shoves Boy 2. Boy 2 shoves Boy 1. Boy 1 punches Boy 2 and Boy 2 punches Boy 1. A fight ensues. Kotone is scared. The bus starts to come around the corner.
Girl: “BUS!” The boys stop fighting, dust off themselves.
Boy 1 (acting as if nothing happened): “So what’s up?”
2 (in the same manner): “Nothing man” The bus arrives at the bus stop. Kotone stands at her place in awe as the kids talk while getting on the bus. The bus driver’s voice echoes out of the bus.
Bus driver: “Hey, are you coming on?” Kotone snaps out of her daze and runs inside the bus.
Inside the school.
Kotone looks at the paper. The list goes down in class order: English Honors, Algebra II Honors, Spanish I, World History Honors, Lunch, Art I, Chemistry Honors, Gym, Choir.
K: What are these classes? I know English, and History, but what’s “Chem-est-tree”? Lord help me.” Kotone unexpectedly bumps into someone. Kotone drops her books and papers. K: “Oh no.” A group of cheerleaders come to her.
Cheerleader1: “Oh look! A poor girl is in need of help.”
