My Ranking Points
I lay in the soft cloud that was my bed.
The School for Good seemed so big! I couldn’t wait to get started with everything!
But for now I must sleep…
*I stand backed up against a wall and for some reason, my side is sticky with crimson.
his violet eyes gleam in the darkness, “n-no… please…”
he raises his knife to my heart…
A cruel voice breaks through, “you’re a fool.”*
I wake up, screaming, my roomie Hollie bolts up and gives me a look, “Jenni…”
“sorry, Hollie, I had a nightmare.”
Her face softens slightly, “that’s ok,” she says empathetically.
I brush a strand of mocha colored hair off my forehead and fell back to sleep.
I open my eyes to brilliant gold sun.
I groggily remember my uniform and pull it on, it is a pink dress that goes just below my knees, my arms are encased in velvety Juliet sleeves and white lace lines the collar and the rim of the dress, egg-yolk yellow hearts decorate the collar as well.
I look in the mirror, I’m nothing special, my hair is a mocha color and freckles line my cheeks like constellations on skin, my eyes are a plain gray.
Hollie looks so exotic and beautiful compared to me, her hair is a shining ebony and her skin is bronzy and beautiful, her eyes are the color of aquamarines,
She comes up behind me as I finish fastening my dress, today her eyeshadow is pale pink and her lips are delicious crimson.
As though she can read my thoughts she suggests she could put some makeup on me. She makes me look better.
She curls my lashes with mascara and then puts pearly lipstick on my lips with ease, she applies silver shadow with a careful hand and lightly brightens my cheeks with pale orange blush.
When I walk in the hall, the boys notice me more. I scowl at this though, all they see is a beautiful girl, not caring about her feelings or dreams, only engrossed in her beauty.
I turned into the Blue Forest and felt my heart stop.
THE COFFIN CHALLENGE!
Every girl at this school (but me) had their eyes riveted on a boy! But not me! no, no, NOOOOO
Yuba bantered on and on about love and finger glows, all the girls were itching to climb into their coffins while I was wishing for a rainstorm or a swarm of gnats to prevent this.
But I finally noticed that that wouldn’t happen. Yuba barked at me to get into my coffin so I slid in, groaning,
I would get the loveliest princess in the world.
Being Aurora’s son, it would be no trouble, those gorgeous girls would come flocking to me like chickens following there leader.
My mother often said I was acting stuck-up, but I just wanted a glorious ending.
A magical pull tethered me toward the 2 coffin and I began to go closer…
Aurora’s son was coming toward my coffin!
All I could do was writhe, I was enclosed in class.
The frosted blue top lifted up and before I could gag, Zayn (I think that was his name?) had clutched my hand delicately and was leaning in… (we’d all been transformed into sirens)
My finger began to glow pea-green and he recoiled, I shouted “LISCES JEBOREDEA QUIZENE!”
A stun spell flew from my glowing finger and he blacked out.
In all the confusion, I’d slipped into the unoccupied 13th coffin, I sighed in relief.
Then the tops opened and Yuba announced that since the mysterious 2nd princess was missing, we wouldn’t continue.
As I did homework on my bed, Hollie devoured a book on beauty tips,
“It was you, wasn’t it?”
I looked up, “uh… n-no.”
She peered more closely at me, “think of it, Jenni, your the only girl in this entire school who would run from love…”
Despite Zayn being clueless and bone-headed, he was handsome, his hair was so thick and beautiful… shining strawberry blonde in the su-
I blanched, SINCE WHEN DID I THINK ABOUT BOYS?
Hollie kept speaking, “Jenni, he wouldn’t of gone to a girl who didn’t want love on purpose, It was the magical pull.”
My mouth had become bone dry and I couldn’t speak.
I turned quietly back to my notes on centaurs.
*”A FOOL! YOU’RE A FOOL!” She’s screaming it, I’m shaking…*
I woke up with a jolt, my mouth so dry and I felt the sheen of sweat that covered my forehead.
I tried to go to sleep. But my dreams were drowned with images of him.
