For my book, now it's moving on to Chapter 3!
Chapter 3: Pranks
“Athena! Athena! Wake up! You’re going to be late for school!”
“What time izzit?” I complained.
Mom came in. “You have to get up, Athena. Breakfast is ready.”
I dragged myself out of bed and got dressed. It’s already been almost three weeks of going to my new school, and still I wasn’t used to the new schedule. I went downstairs. Ruby was already there, texting and eating at the same time. I quickly inhaled scrambled eggs and a piece of buttered toast. While eating, Dad came in with the mail. “Bills, advertisements, and a coupon,” he muttered to himself as he examined each envelope. “Better hurry up, girls. The bus will be here any minute.”
I finished, brushed my teeth, and threw everything in my backpack. Just as I slung it over my shoulder, the bus pulled up outside the window. I raced outside and climbed on. Grace saw me and smiled, patting the seat next to her. I sat down and took out my phone to check my email. One of the messages were from Lily Springwater. Lily had emailed me! Before I could read it, Grace said, “I love your shoes, Athena. Where did you get them?”
I stuck out a foot and replied, “Fillyflower’s Magic Shoes. These were on sale. Seven dollars only.”
I tucked my phone back in my backpack and chatted with Grace the rest of the time on the bus. Walking down the hall at school, I accidentally bumped into someone.
“Oops, sorry I-.” Then I realized who I bumped into. Calia.
She sneered and said, “Better watch where you’re going, newbie.” She gave me a dirty look and strode away.
“Ignore her,” Grace advised.
“Thanks,” I said gratefully.We stopped by our lockers and got our books. The bell rang and we rushed to science class.
Hope you enjoyed this part! Thanks to all of you for your positive feedback!
