When Ena arrived at the school campus, several eyes fixed on her, staring her down. It was different this time - their gaze smoldered into her and she burned up, hot blood rushing into her cheeks. Biting down hard on her lower lip, she let her hair fall on either side of her face as she crossed the campus in quick strides.
Once she was in the school building, she hurried to her classroom, shunning the several whispers and shouts people intended towards her. She was the first student inside, and she sat down on her seat, setting her bag down on the desktop as she folded her arms in front of her and let her head fall against them, closing her eyes.
Ena was scared. Something just didn't feel right. And her judgement was always precise. Her life was screwed up, everything was wrong but this time she could sense it...
When her parents had died, she'd been too young and caught up in her own tidalwave of emotions to realize what was going on. Life was but a blur in her eyes; a fire, a new home, the grandmother she never knew making an entrance. It had changed everything, and she had been too alarmed with the hectic movements to feel scared.
But Ena could feel something stirring inside of her - like the plates of the Earth moving to cause shuddering earthquakes to break out. It was already a part of her, growing to life. And she had not the faintest idea what it was.
