in the U.S
The bus was about to take off, before I jumped infront of it, it screeched to halt, missing me by a couple feet.
I was still screaming, like nothing ever happened.
The bus driver got out, yelling at the top of his lungs.
"ARE YOU COMPLETELY INSANE !?" he said infuriated. "I COULD HAVE RUN YOU OVER!!"
"But, you didn't." I pointed out.
He turned beat red, that probably wasn't the smartest thing to say. In a way, he saved my life, by not turning me into a pancake.
Maybe, I just imagined it, but I thought I could see steam coming from his ears.
"WHAT WAS SO DANG IMPORTANT, THAT YOU HAD TO JUMP INFRONT OF A MOVING VEHICLE? He roared.
"I need to speak to my bestfriend, She's on your bus."
"YOU JUMPED IN FRONT OF A MOVING BUS, TO SEE A FRIEND!?"
"Not just any friend, my bestfriend." I Elucidated.
"I DON"T CARE IF IT WAS YOUR DEAD GRANDMA!!" he said, still enraged. "THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT, TO JUMP IN FRONT OF A BUS!"
I winced. "I'm sorry."
"YOUR SORRY?! THAT"S ALL YOU HAVE TO SAY? AFTER PUTTING YOU AND OTHER LIVES IN DANGER?!"
I bit my lip, then pushed past him, entering the bus.
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" he screamed.
I ignored him.
I wrinkled my nose. The bus was dusty, and smelled like stale chips.
I scanned the room, no sign of Lilith. Maybe she was in the very back?
I made my way down the aisle.
Still nothing. Lilith never skips school, I thought.
I decided to make my way out of the bus. Maybe she was already at school?
On my way out, someone put there foot out.
"Oof" I said, tripping over it.
"Oh crud! Are you ok?" a voice said helping me up.
It was a guy, wearing all black. He even had black hair.
"Ill Live" I said, dusting myself off.
The Boy cracked a smile. I've never seen him before.
"Do you attend HighGates Academy?" I asked.
He smiled, " I do."
"I've never seen you before," I said, in a curious voice.
"I'm New" He replied without hesitation.
"We Never get new students in the middle of the year." I stated.
When he heard this, He seemed to Tense up.
"Well, they Allowed me." He said, not quite meeting my eyes.
I shot him a skeptical look.
Then I shrugged, and dashed out the bus not looking back.
The Bus driver must have been on the phone, with my parents, because when I came out, he screamed at me to come back.
But I didn't. I still had to find lilith, and now i had to deal with some strange guy, who was obviously lying to me.
Something was defiantly going on, and I didnt like it.
