A few days past and then it was time for Kara's first day at Rosewood High School, and it was obvious she was nervous.

"Don't worry, okay? If I accept you everyone will accept you" Alison told her, over the breakfast table.

"Oh, I get it, so you're like the Queen Bee of the school?" Kara questioned.

"More like Queen Bitch" Jason stated, walking over to them.

"What the hell's your problem, Jason?" Alison asked.

"You. Stop stealing things from my room Alison, I mean it" Jason warned her.

"Or what?" Alison smirked.

"Or I'll-" He was cut off by Kara.

"Or nothing. Alison, what did you take?" Kara inquired.

"Just one of his Japanese porn magazines" Alison replied.

"...Okay, why?" Kara asked.

"Because it was something to do" Alison told her.

"Well here's something else that you can do...give it back" Kara exclaimed.

"Oh, C'mon Kara" Alison pouted.

"Ali, seriously this isn't worth it. Just give it back" Kara explained.

"Ugh, fine" Alison grumbled, walking up the stairs to her room.

"...I have never heard someone speak to Ali like that" Jason exclaimed.

"Well maybe it's about time someone did, and by the way, you shouldn't call your sister a bitch" She told him.

"And why's that?" He asked.

"Because one day you might need to be in her good books" Kara advised him, standing up.

"I'm heading over to Spencer's house, I'll see you there" She called up the stairs.

"Okay, I'll be there in a minute" Alison replied.


"C'mon, let's sit here" Alison said, sitting by a table, while the rest of her friends followed.

"So how come you're in our classes today? Aren't you too young?" Spencer questioned.

"I may have lied about my age a tiny bit. I've got some friends who are good at hacking computers and changing records" Kara explained.

"I advised her it would probably be better to have classes with us to make sure everyone knows who her friends are" Alison told them.

"Jesus Ali, you make us sound like the Mafia" Kara laughed.

"Hey Alison, who's your friend?" A voice boomed from behind them.

"Noel, this is Kara" Alison introduced them.

"Hey" Noel smirked at Kara, checking her out.

"My face is up here Noel" Kara said, when she noticed him looking at her cleavage.

"Feisty, I like this one" He smirked, walking away.

"Ugh, what a creeper" Kara stated.

"He may be a creeper, but he's hot, right Aria?" Alison added.

"Oh, do you have a crush Aria?" Kara teased.

"Maybe a little..." Aria blushed.

"Oh please, you've been obsessed with him for ages now" Alison exclaimed.

"Well he'd be stupid not to notice you Aria" Kara told her.

"Thanks" Aria smiled shyly.

"So what do you guys have first period?" Kara asked.

"We all have geography" Spencer told her.

"Ugh, I don't have the same lesson as you guys, I've got biology instead" Kara sighed.

"I'm going to go and check out my locker, I'll see you guys at break" Kara told them.


She soon found her and started to place her books inside of it. As she closed the locker door, she spotted a girl next to her looking at a necklace.

"Cute necklace" Kara told her.

"Oh...um, thanks" The girl said shyly.

"Who got it for you?" Kara asked.

"It was a birthday present from my mom" The girl replied.

"It's really pretty, why don't you wear it?" Kara questioned.

"This is probably going to sound really stupid...but I guess I feel like it's too pretty for me" The girl admitted.

"What? You're pretty" Kara told her.

"No, I'm not" The girl insisted.

Kara stepped towards the girl and carefully took her ponytails and hair grips out, letting her hair fall to her shoulders.

"There, all you need is a good curling or straitening iron and you're good to go" Kara smiled.

"Just because my hair looks better won't mean the rest of me will" The girl told her.

"Alright, how about you ditch the glasses and get contact lenses...and maybe a slight change of clothes" Kara explained.

"You really think I'd look pretty if I did that?" The girl asked.

"You are pretty, you just can't see it" Kara said, as she took the necklace out of the girl's hands and put it around her neck.

"There, better already. So what's your name?" Kara smiled.

"Mona. What's yours?" The girl replied.

"Kara, I just moved here from England" She told her.

"Oh...you're one of Alison's friends" Mona realised.

"Yeah...I'm guessing you guys don't get on too well" Kara suggested.

"She doesn't like me" Mona stated.

"Well who cares what she thinks, the only important opinion is your own one" Kara advised.

"Thanks" Mona smiled.

"It was nice meeting you" Kara said, as the bell rang and she walked to her next lesson.


It had come to the last lesson of the day and Kara was exhausted. She instantly cheered up when she saw Emily standing outside of her classroom.

"Hey, do you have this lesson now?" Kara asked.

"Yeah, do you?" Emily questioned.

"Yep, I'm so happy I've finally got one of you guys in my class" Kara exclaimed.

"So how's our school been so far?" Emily inquired.

"Alright, I mean it's not easy going anywhere when you're the new girl though" Kara replied, as the teacher opened the door, ushering them in.

"You must be our new student" The women stated.

"Yep, that's me" Kara smiled awkwardly.

"Well you can go sit over by the back" The teacher told her, then started the lesson.

"Hey, I'm Kara" She said, sitting down and holding her hand out.

"Um..." They boy mumbled, giving Emily a strange look.

"Okay, I'm sensing some weird vibes here. Do you and Emily not like each other or something?" She asked.

"We're just very different people" He replied.

"Ah, you mean you're not in the popular group" Kara realised.

"Yep, not like you" He told her.

"Me? I've been here for one day, I'm certainly not in the popular group. I'm like bottom of the pile" Kara explained.

"Not when you're hanging around with Alison Dilaurentis" He explained.

"So it's you and Alison who don't like each other" Kara stated.

"That's an understatement" He admitted.

"Well Ali can be a bitch sometimes...okay a lot of the time, but she is my friend. However, that doesn't mean I can't be friends with people who she doesn't like" Kara told him.

"It kind of does" He retorted.

"Okay, let's start again. You have no idea who I am, and I have no idea who you are. So, I'm Kara, what's your name?" She smiled.

"Lucas" He replied.

"Nice to meet you Lucas" Kara said, shaking his hand.

"Here is your project for the next few weeks, I expect you to work on it with your lab partners" Their teacher announced at the end of the lesson, handing out some sheets of paper.

"So, me and you are lab partners then?" Kara winked.

"Don't worry, I'll do the work, I'll just tell you what to say when we have to present it" Lucas told her.

"What? No way, I want to help" She retorted.

"You know we'd have to work on this out of class" Lucas added.

"I know that's why it's called homework" She said sarcastically.

"Hey Kara, you ready to go? Ali said she'd wait at the hall entrance for us" Emily said, walking up to them.

"Sure. How about I meet you at your house tomorrow, would 5 be alright with you?" Kara inquired.

"...I guess" Lucas said, shocked.

"Alright, I'll see you then" Kara smiled, as she and Emily left the classroom.

"You know our teacher would let you swap lab partners seeing as your new" Emily told her.

"Well I don't want to" Kara retorted.

"You're actually going to work with him?" Emily exclaimed.

"Why wouldn't I? Because Alison wouldn't approve?" Kara said, unimpressed.

"Well...yeah I guess so" Emily admitted, as they walked up to where Alison was waiting for them.

"Hey Alison, you know Lucas?" Kara inquired.

"You mean Hermie?" Alison asked.

"...Yes. Emily was worried that you wouldn't like me having him as my lab partner" Kara told her.

"You've got Hermie as your lab partner? Poor you" Alison laughed.

"Do you even know him?" Kara questioned.

"I know him enough to know he's a creep" Alison exclaimed.

"Okay, let's get something sorted out right here right now, Ali. You're my friend okay? But doesn't mean you get to choose who I'm friends with, I do" Kara explained.

"...I...I..." Alison stuttered, surprised because nobody had ever talked to her like that before.

"Look, I do love you Ali, but you can't control my life. And you shouldn't be trying to control your other friends lives too" Kara exclaimed.

"I'm only trying to look out for you. Do you really want to hang around with someone like him?" Alison asked.

"I don't yet. But I might do, and I hope you'll be able to except that" Kara told her.

"...Okay" Alison sighed.

"Really?" Kara questioned.

"Yeah, but don't tell me I didn't warn you when you start falling lower on the social ladder" Alison retorted.

"I won't. Friends?" Kara asked.

"Always" Alison said, pulling Kara into a quick hug.
