10:10:25 AM (GMT)
My alarm woke me up at 7. I slammed my hand on the sleep button a tossed over.
"Chika, get up, or you'll miss the school bus."
"5 dollars says you can get dressed and out of here in 10 minutes."
"You're on!" I rushed out of bed, openign my wardrobe put on my purple t-shirt and
black shorts, slipped on my heeled sandles, combed my hair, tossed my pink hat on and
grabbed a cereal bar. Mum handed me $10.
"What's this for?"
"5, for winnign the bet, and 5 for your lunch, i gave mum the $5 to look after,
grabbed my blue honey, sidebag and fixed it on and ran out the door. A new day was
before me and so was Monique and Willow.
"We'll go together, all 3 of us." Willow piped up.Tugging me along we sat on the bus,
Monique sat with Willow behind me. Next stop a really cute boy came and sat down next
"hi, i'm Seth."
"Chiro, China, Chi-Chi." I stutterd.
"Chika!" Monique slapped me round the head.
"Oh yeah, yeah Chika."
"Hi Chika." Seth placed his hand-bag on the floor, smiled at me and talked to the boy
sat across us.
"Girls and Boys!" The teacher, Miss Hamly, shouted. Everyone turned and stared. "This
is Chika Green, she just moved her from Florida, please make her feel welcome.
Everyone in the class had wings. "Chika." I turned to face her. "Welcome to Cloud
High." I smiled. "Sit next to, um, Rose." Pointing to the girl in sunglasses.
I gave a faint smile to her and sat down.
"I'm Rose, don't call me Rosie, Rose." She tossed her dark brown hair behind her and
turned to the boy next to her.
"Chika." I mumbled and she ignored me.
I had a feeling this wasn't going to be a bad day....
