novem-sixFinally out the door and into the cold air the group moved to the first room. Buses arrived in the bay between the field and the school. Students rushed through the gates and bombarded the cafeteria. The noise level rose from nothing to 10 in little less then fourteen seconds. Johnny and Eric showed them all the major buildings around the school: library, tech office, etc. and helped them map out where their classrooms were.
December settled into his new seat in Ms. Lock's Sophomore English. The desk was a two person table. Next to him sat some guy in a Letterman football jacket named Jake. The teacher gave him his school issued laptop and gave him another paper explaining the procedures for it.
"The six digit number, memorize it. It's your password for everything. Lunch and snack bar access require this number. It's also your login number for this computer. Don't give it to anyone because there are kids who will screw you over just because they can. If you have any questions ask
novem- fiveThe black Nisan drove into the drop off bay of the high school. The buildings were tall and loomed over them in classic ways, distressing them only more.
"Have a good day!" Carol cooed through the lowered window.
Jan and December looked at the lot of the school. Some parking spaces were marked with red painted squares stating which senior possessed that space with a ridiculous nickname. All the buildings were built in cold stone colored bricks with a red line of colored bricks bordering the roofs.
"We have to go to the office to make sure everything's in order. Likely hood is mom didn't do all the paper work."
Jan started towards a small, square building labeled in tall silver letter's 'ADMINISTRATION'. On either side of it were high-bared silver gates attached to much larger walls. The only colorful thing in sight was the wall of an enormous auditorium. It was a vibrant new vermillion compared to the rest of the school. December sighed and followed his sister.
The inside of the admini
novem- fourAfter the house was done and presentable, eighty percent of the boxes were unpacked, the electricity was running, and they'd begun to settle in Monday rolled around. Jan met December down at the table who was already dressed. His mother placed two egg sandwiches in front of him with the cheese oozing out. On the seat in front of the picture window were two Jansport backpacks.
"Eat quickly then brush your teeth. I want to leave here before seven forty!"
"School won't start until eight forty mom " Jan stood up still chewing and tossed her paper plate into the garbage.
"Well I need to get to this interview. It's not often that the chief of medicine calls you personally for an interview. I want to make sure everything is perfect. How do I look?"
"You're wearing two different shoes mom " Jan directed to her feet.
"Damn it!" Carol ran towards the stairs, heals clicking furiously.
December was onto his second sandwich. Jan went into the bathroom to brush her teeth.
"How to prepare f
novem- chapter threeSaturday came as a blessed sunny day. Jan and December helped in moving every bit of furniture into the down stairs rooms and began setting up their new home. The formal dining room became a dining room and the spare room down stairs became a study- for Carol's make shift art studio and office. They bought shower curtains and bathroom sets for the three bathrooms in the house. Boxes were emptied and soon the front room was established as the main living area.
Big comfy chairs and the nicer coffee table were set up facing the fireplace. The candles were replaced on it and the walls were painted a new deep green to contrast with the furniture.
"Mom, where do you want this one?" December held up a fresco to the wall.
"Um do you think it should go there or on the right or in the center? No save the center, left or right?"
"Right so it gets illuminated by the windows up there and the chandelier."
"Good boy, nail it high."
"Mom and her paintings " December thought.
"Mom, I'm takin
novem- chapter two"Thank you for being good today," Carol set down a box of Chinese food down for Jan to take.
"Thanks," December echoed grabbing a bag of Carl's Jr. off the counter.
"While you're up can you turn on the lights?" Jan asked her brother.
It had grown rather dim in the house since the clouds had blocked over the sun. He turned to flip a light switch nothing. Trying again he earned the same reaction. December flipped the switch a few more times.
"That's strange I called the electric company today, they said everything would be fine."
"Guess not " Jan slurped her noodles with a pair of chopsticks.
"Guess you'll just have to get the candles, Jan," her mother scowled opening a subway sandwich.
Sighing Jan got up to take three candles off the coffee table in the front room.
"Storm must've put out the power," December said stoically.
Jan returned and set the decorative candles on the table in front of them. December leaned over and pulled a blue lighter from his pocket.
novem- chapter one"I'm home!" came a voice from down the stairs with a jingling of the doorknob, "How far have you guys gotten on unpacking?"
"What's for dinner?" a young voice returned.
"Didn't answer my question!"
"Ouch, damn it!"
"Jan! Language missy!"
"Well he left a box right in front of my door and I stubbed my toe!"
"Whatever, you're just clumsy!" a voice retorted.
"C'mon, don't be like that guys! This is a chance to start all over! Would it kill you two to be siblings instead of rivals? If you guys can at least cooperate until dinner " a ring of the door bell interrupted the mother, "Then I'll order you guys whatever you want to eat. Hello?" she smiled answering the door with a soft sigh.
Standing outside was a man approximately in his late thirties with two teenage boys, "Excuse me but I wanted to introduce myself. I'm your neighbor from across the street, Richard Berlin. These are my sons Eric and Johnny."
"Nice to meet you, I'm Carol Peachly," they shook hands.
The two boys behind nodded
Novem Intro- part duoShe sat at the monitor doing her games as she always had done. Her eyes were skirting over the glowing screen with numbers locating themselves in small boxes at the touch of a finger. Next to her sat the collection she knew as friends as well as comrades. They sat there hardly moving and quietly whispering. Little else was known about this group other than that they were different, very different. No one really knew quite why precisely. Glancing slightly off the monitor of the white laptop she snuck a peek at the rest of the students in the library. A teacher was leading around a curious mother- a visitor tag dangled off the hem of her blouse. She seemed to be interested in how the school was managed.
"Well not everything is done on laptops. They are simply given to the students to aid them in their work. However, much of work is turned in through our internet sites."
"I see what exactly is on the laptops?"
"I can show you on this monitor right here."

Picture of a horror film monster faded on a vintage t-shirt
Hem of a dark tank peaking out from below
Hair hanging over shoulders in crooked curls, deep brown in color
Uneven earrings glimmering in the light
An oddity of bracelets fully concealing one wrist
Jeans too long slide over the floor accentuating black flip-flops
Eyes clear and crystal blue
Skin pale in the hidden morning sun
She lived alone in her own mind. Past experiences made her unsure of whom she would be able to trust. Even her friends could not be trusted. However, to escape from the pangs of ridicule this average yet un-average girl stuck together with them.
Light tank top sprinkled in fake jewels
Blonde hair recently cut just above the shoulders framed the face
Tan jeans over top black skating sneakers
Fingernails in an array of color and length
Also trapped inside her head she believed her ideas to be perfect. No one would ever say
