School Life pt. 3December Sixteenth
Gaven was taken aback as Makena walked in with Sam. Normally, he waited for her at the vending machines, and then the two would go off to the library, holding hands. Today, they walked in together. They were both smiling, but Gaven saw a resolved protectiveness deep in Sam's eyes. Something had changed in their relationship over the weekend. Gaven worried what it was.
Makena walked by him then and gave him a wave and a half smile. Something was wrong. Makena's smile normally was beautiful and bright. Today it seemed forced. They continued to the library without a word.
That was when he noticed how many people were whispering and staring. It urked him. This proved that most high school students were ignorant, immature, and stupid.
When it was time for him to go to class, he walked past the library and looked in. Makena was seated at one of the wooden tables, Sam beside her. From what he could tell, the conversation they were having was spoken in hushed tones, b
Spanish Silent Night and Jingle Bells(Jingle Bells)
Música de amor.
Dulces horas, gratas horas
Juventud en flor.
No ceces, oh cascabel,
Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor.
Entre sus astros que esparcen su luz
Bella anunciando al niñito Jesús.
Brilla la estrella de paz,
Brilla la estrella de paz.
Noche de paz, Noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor.
Sólo velan en la oscuridad
Los pastores que en el campo están
Y la estrella de Belén,
Y la estrella de Belén.
A Turn-AroundI stare at the page,
A lump in my throat.
What? Why? What'd I do?
I'm stuck back in this cage.
I tried to read what you wrote.
I guess our ending was due.
I tried not to hate you,
Tried not to cry,
Tried to carry on like nothing was wrong.
I watched as you did too.
I watched as the days went by.
I walked around, hiding from Our Song.
Then a boy came.
He smiled brightly.
And offered his hand.
He seems so tame,
Though he held me tightly.
And everything was grand.
School Life pt. 2December Thirteenth
All the people who watched the news saw the announcement. A woman with a fake smile and too much money not to have botox informed everyone for the fifth time. ". . . The bodies of Joshua and Julia Lincoln were found at three-fifteen today. Massacred in their home, the foster parents of two will be sadly missed. Makena and Daniel Silver will be moved to another foster home's care until further notice. . ."
I sat on a couch in the familar cold room, once again watching the announcement on the television hanging in the corner across from me. The couch was across from a large mahogany desk, old and warn with use. You could say how hair-brained Mrs. Sarah was if you wanted, but she'd been sitting in that desk since before I was born. Daniel sat to the left of me, staring down at the grey-linoleum floor in silence. Everything was silent, except for the slow ticking of the clock, which reminded us of how late Mrs. Sarah was. I watched as Daniel clenched and unclenched h
School Life -Edited-September Twenty-Fourth
Makena took a deep breath as she stepped through the double doors. The chaotic noise of two hundred high school students greeted her. She kept her head down until she got inside the office, her long dirty-blonde hair hiding her face. The cement walls somehow blocked most of the noise. That was a smart trick.
"Name," the receptionist asked. she had short pale-blond hair and eyes like emerald daggers. She sat in the middle of two other women about her age. One had short chocolate brown hair cut in a bob, and the other had grey hair, very short. Was it a rule that all personel had to have short hair?
"Makena Lynn Silver."
"And you're the new student?"
It was sophomore year and Makena had just moved into town. It was a generally small area, where everybody knew everyone. If you went left from the high school, you'd drive through the country. If you went right, you'd be taken to Gray, where all the fast food places, a shopping mall, and banks were locat
