It was the first day of school Aurora's junior year and her parents were extatic that she managed to get a scholarship to Eden Hall. Looking around though as she listened to the dean's speech she felt sure that this school was going to be a nightmare.
"Does he have to do this every year?" Asked a guy sitting in front of her.
"I know we've been here two years already, you'd think we'd be able to miss out on this snooze fest." The one next to him commented. Aurora read the backs of their jackets. "Conway" and "Germaine" after what seemed like hours there were finally dismissed and she couldn't have been anymore ready to go but it seemed she was going to have to wait a while longer while a group of jocks congregated in front of her.
"Hey Russ, how was your summer?" Aurora heard one ask.
"It was fine, you know typical L.A. summer." Someone else replied. After several minutes she squeezed her way in between all of them.
"Excuse me." She kept saying over and over and then she tripped on someone's foot crashing into him. His hands wrapped around her arms steadying her. Aurora looked into his deep brown eyes and all of her vocabulary was ripped from her mouth, all she could do was stare at him.
"Easy there, don't want to get hurt on the first day." He told her.
"Uh, yeah thanks." She replied nervously.
