Newcomers

I held Taylor back as a pregnant girl got off the bus. He had no sense, He usually just barrelled ahead without ever looking ahead of him. Of course, if there were ever any obstacles, he would wave his wand under his overcoat, and make the obstacle move.

There was no way I was going to let that  little brat move a pregnant girl. What if she gave birth in mid air! It was Taylor's fault that we missed the bus to magic school in the first place. Now we had to take the only bus that went  there. Who knew what kind of wackos, weirdos and lackers were likely to be on it!

"When we were finally boarded, we went down to the nearest empty aisle, aisle 5. I got in the seat on the right hand side of the aisle, and Keith got in the left hand side. There was no way I was going to sit with my creepy little brother!

Taylor was going into his second year at school, and I was going into the fifth. Keith was twelve, I was fifteen. I looked around me. There were several people and a couple aliens that possessed some form of magic. The rest were lackers...people who lacked any form of magic  whatsoever. I was a young witch, my brother a young wizard. We came from a long line of witches and wizards.

The fact that we were forced to go to school on a lacker bus was something truly annoying, and a little scary. I didn't know how to talk to a lacker, I never really met one before. Taylor scooted across the aisle to my seat.

"Go back there, Taylor. I don't want to sit with you."

"That's tough Jayden, I want to sit here. You can go over there if you want."

"What's so great about this seat?'

He leaned over and whispered.

"There's a drop dead gorgeous angel sitting right behind us."

I turned around, and the angel smiled and blushed. I turned back around again.

"I'm not moving.I won't let you annoy her."

"What makes you think I'll annoy her?"

"You were born annoying. You can't help it."

The End
