I had to do something, the laughter was still echoing in my head. I didn't blame Gloria, it's hard to take control of your instincts. It was hard for everyone, but they just judged her.
We went to lunch, all of us were quiet, no one touched the weird food. I had to do something. Right then and there. I got up, everyone's eyes in the lunch room were on me, they never look away anyway. I got up onto the table and now everyone was facing me. Deep breath.
"Don't laugh at Gloria for what she did! All of you know how hard it is to hold back on something so strong, something that's apart of you. She was courious, wouldn't you be? I was, and now I know, but you don't need to laugh at her because of what she is. It could have happened to you," I geastured around the room. Gloria's eyes were fixed on me, wide eyed and open mouthed. I jumped down off of the table, gracefully, and walked to the doors. I could still feel their eyes on me. I had caused a scene, a big one at that, I would be the weird one once again.
I walked to science class, I just wanted the day to be over. I still walked with my head held high. Gloria ran up to me, stopping me in my tracks.
"Thank you soooooooo much," she said.
"It's not a problem, everyones thinks I'm a freak anyway."
"Well I don't think your a freak, your the best friend I've ever had!"
I laughed, "Well let's just get this day over with."
Science passed slowly, me and Gloria sat next to each other. We were both on the edge on our seats waiting to get to our next class. Our next class was Battle of the Arts, we both didn't know what it meant, but we were courious.
BING! We both stood up and raced out the door. Once we had our things we walked down the hallway to the girls locker rooms. All we knew was that it had something to do with athletics. After we got dressed, and were in the gym, we were told to pick partners. Me and Gloria were together, but Coach Keller came up to us.
"I'm sorry Miss Grey, but youcan't have a partner," he said.
I glared at him and put my hands on my hips, "Why not?"
"Now now Miss Grey, you don't want to hurt the other students."
"How could I hurt them?" I was getting angry now, it was a strange feeling. It was rippiling through me like a tide, my skin was getting hot.
"Miss Grey, calm down." I didn't like to be told to calm down, not even at the slightest, and then I herd a chink as I felt my bones reasimble. It didn't feel good. Then out of no where my hands formed into paws, as weird as it seems, and they grew hair, too! Coach Keller was backing away.
"I told you. I told you you were a half-blood," Gloria gloated.
