As I sat on the tall oak tree, I gazed out towards the rising sun. If I was right, it was about 7:30-8:00am, so everyone would be down to have breakfast. I stood up on the strong branch and jumped off, landing lightly on the ground, then took off again in the direction of the school. I landed and walked in to the canteen, straight into absolute chaos. Everyone was shouting to each other, some people were having a food fight, others, of course, were just studying or eating normally. I sighed. Great, I was in a school of lunatics, even worse than last year.
I got my breakfast and sat down on an abandoned table, kicking some litter on the way over. As I ate my food, I sensed te presence of two people behind me. I rolled my eyes and turned around. "What." I said. I expected to see a bunch of idiots there, laughing, but instead I saw two indentical people. Twins. They both had ginger hair, and amber eyes. They leaned in at the same time - kind of freaky!
"You're Leilah Angell Black. Our roommate." They said at the same time.
"Roommate? You've got to be kidding me. Twins as my roommate? That's the final straw." I said, exasparated. I got up and storned out of the canteen. I could hear the twins behind me,
"Well that wasn't a --" One of them started,
"very nice greeting." The other finished. I scowled and stormed to my doom, and burst in to see mess. Mess everywhere.
"Aarrgghh!" I shouted as I slammed the door shut. I was flaring up again - I knew that - but seriously? Twins as roommates. They already annoyed me and I didn't even know their names. I looked up and stared around the room - they'd obviously had a pillow fight the night before; there were feathers everywhere. And there was a load of empty tins and cups everywhere. So, a midnight feast and a pillow fight, eh? Well, they'd soon learn my way of living.
Smirking to myself, I walked out of my dorm and flew down the stairs. The first class bell rang and, as I was flying past the canteen, I saw two people sleeping, there heads rolled on top of each other. I smiled and, for the first time since coming here, I felt, almost... happy.
