Stupid house. I can’t believe we had to move here. It’s such a downgrade. My dad had to had to move jobs, so now were stuck moving into this stupid, old, falling-apart house. It’s hideous. After contemplating my life for another few minutes, I finally get out of the car. Grabbing my suitcases, I walk up the old stone path straight to the front door, looking up at the old windows as I do. I swear I could see someone standing there, but I’m probably just tired. I open the door and *creak* oh god. Even the doors are creaky. I walk straight to the steps,
I walk straight down the corridor to the bedroom farthest away from everyone else in my family. I put my suitcases on my bed and sit down, completely…show more content… Was that? Screaming? I turn around to ask Xander but he was gone. Weird.
-THREE DAYS LATER-
I walked out the door. On my way to my first day of school. I saw Xander standing by his front door.
“Hey Raven. Can I drop by after school?”
“Oh, but don’t you go to my school? I thought it was the only school around here.”

“Is that what people call it?”
“Yeah. Don’t worry about them though.” I saw Xander through my window as we walked up the steps. Did he look.. angry?
“Thanks for walking me home Mordecai”.
“It’s cool. See you tomorrow.”
I walk into my room but where did Xander go?
*BEEP BEEP BEEP*
I slam the off button on the alarm. Why was my alarm going off at 10 O’clock at night? I stretch and slowly open my eyes.
I jump and look at Xander.
“Oh, Hey. I haven’t seen you for ages. What’s u-
“Will you go to the beach with me?”
“Yes. Right now.”
“But it’s late and-“
