My Ranking Points
Okay, here’s chapter 1 of my story (I posted my bio like a day ago)
Chapter 1: A New Beginning
Athena found herself staring at the principal for the tenth time this year. She hadn’t meant to be rude; it just slipped out. While plotting against Giselle for bullying Quinn, Mrs. Tryniski had caught her not paying attention in math class. To be fair, she had already learned that stuff from reading books, but unfortunately, her teacher couldn’t care less. She had been asked what they were learning about and couldn’t remember. Naturally, Mrs. Tryniski got mad at her, but Athena was fed up. She replied with, “Well, maybe if you taught us something useful or new I would pay attention!” Of course, she was sent to the office after that incident. After a lecture from the principal plus a note to show her parents, she was finally dismissed at the end of the day. As Athena briskly walked home, hiding her face behind her jacket collar, Quinn, the very same friend she was trying to protect, caught up to her. “So…” he started. “What do you think the School for Evil will be like? Send me a letter when you’re there!” Athena glared at him, mildly confused. Quinn continued, unaware of her discomfort. As always, he was full of energy. “You do know you’re going to Evil? Everyone thinks you would do well there!” Athena had not known this, and ran the rest of the way home. After receiving a lecture from her parents and sitting through dinner while her brother flicked peas at her, Athena finally flopped on her bed. Why couldn’t she have a real friend? Sure, she had plenty of people she was friendly with, but every time she tried to do something nice or start a conversation about emotions, it had backfired. She ignored most of her emotions and bottled them up, but some days she just wished she could talk to someone. The School for Evil wouldn’t be an improvement from her life, considering everyone there pretty much just wanted to kill nice people. Athena turned on her side miserably and fell asleep without taking off her boots or coat. Later she awoke to a scratching sound. She tensed and got ready to punch some moronic prankster. Suddenly, a bird she recognized as a stymph flew through her window and picked her up! Athena didn’t even have time to scream. As she flew over the Endless Woods, the tips of her boots skimming the treetops, Athena sighed out loud. Why wasn’t she a little bit nicer? Maybe she would still be at home if it wasn’t for her mean streak. The Schools for Good and Evil loomed over her. Athena squeezed her eyes shut, expecting to drop into Evil’s moat. She felt the stymph drop her…but she didn’t drop into the moat. Athena opened her eyes and saw the Good castle gleaming majestically. Athena looked around and found herself in a grassy field full of flowers. She couldn’t help but allow herself a little smile that gradually got bigger, knowing that someone in the world recognized that she wasn’t evil after all.
**This is my first time role-playing, I hope you enjoyed! If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them! :)**
PS: Sorry this is short, I just needed an introduction to my character.
