Once I exited the train I looked up at the tall dark gates, they looked like the gates to a haunted mansion overrun with zombies, the way they creaked open by themselves sent shivers down my spine. But anyway, that's not the point. I just arrived at my new school.

It's well... not quite what I expected. I thought it would look like the stereotype school, I didn't expect this large creepy mansion that looked like it popped straight out of a horror movie.

Someone nudged me and whispered in my ear, "You aren't scared, are you?" the person taunted. I turned to my side and saw Kid grinning mockingly at me.

I huffed and said, "Of course not, the person who's scared is obviously you Eustass-ya." "Me? Scared?" He asked and then laughed loudly drawing the attention of a lot of other students,

"Like that'd ever-" he was cut off by his own girly scream as Luffy touched his shoulder and exclaimed 'Boo!'.

Kid turned a deep shade of red, "That was just a one time thing! I don't get scared by anything other than jump scares!" He declared crossing his arms and looking away still slightly red from embarrassment.

"Shishishi! Kiddo's a scaredy cat!" Luffy laughed. "No I'm not!" Kid protested glaring at Luffy which just made him laugh even more.

I sighed and shook my head, Just my luck to end up with two idiots following me around like I was there friend. It looked like I would have to get used to it as they were both stubborn.

At least there was Killer, and he seemed sane. Speaking of which where did Killer go? I raised an eyebrow and scanned the crowd of children but he was nowhere to be seen.

"Guys?" I questioned interrupting their argument, well Kid yelling at the laughing Luffy."What Tra-guy?" Luffy asked tilting his head. "For the last time it's Tra-fal-gar and where's Killer?"

Kid and Luffy looked around both seeming to just notice his disappearance at this moment. "Kil, Where are you?" Kid called. There was no reply.

Luffy shrugged, "He probably was hungry so he went to get some food."

Leave it up to Luffy to come up with an answer like that. "Luffy-ya, Unlike you most people don't have a bottomless pit for a stomach so I don't think Killer-ya went to get food."

Luffy looked at me like I was an idiot, "Why wouldn't he go to get food? Food is life." Luffy answered simply.

I sighed and gave up, even after just knowing Luffy for a small amount of time I knew it was pointless arguing with him.

"He probably just went to the bathroom..." Kid concluded but there was a look of worry still evident on his face. It was obvious he still was worried about his friend.

An adult was in front of the gates and he cleared his throat, most likely as a way to gain everyone's attention. He succeeded with this as everyone quieted down and all eyes were on him.

"Welcome back to a new year at New World Academy, and to those of you who have come here for the first time then welcome to the school." I assumed the guy was a teacher. He was tall, light-skinned, lean yet muscular with short dark hair, a beard, sideburns, and sunglasses. He wore a jumper and grey pants along with a brown belt.

I feel like I saw him somewhere before but I couldn't recall where. Meh, it doesn't matter, it's probably not important anyway.

"Follow me and I'll guide you to the school where you can get your schedule and the information of where you'll be staying." He retreated inside the gates and all the students gathered up their stuff and followed him. Luffy had already began skipping towards the school.

Kid was looking around, I think he was looking for Killer. I put a hand on his shoulder, "I'm sure Killer will catch up, Don't worry."

Kid nodded and took one glance around before he ran to catch up with the rest of the group. I swear I saw something move out of the corner of my eye, I furrowed my eyebrows and looked around to see if there was anything.

There was nothing. That's weird. It was probably my imagination. The group was already inside the school building and the last couple of kids were entering, I sprinted up the hill to the school to catch up.

The students were lining up at the secretary's desk, It was a long line and only one secretary. This was going to take awhile.

Wait... the rate that the secretary was handing out schedules and stuff was inhumane. She was good at her job for sure.

It actually only took about two minutes for me to be standing in front of her office. She had green hair flowing down her back and wore round glasses with a swirly design on them and a green tank top that said 'Happy'. I couldn't see anything other than that.

"Name?" she asked. "Trafalgar L-" Before I could answer she stuffed a schedule, a key and said "Boy's Dormitories, Room 17. You'll be sharing the room with two others."

I walked off and leaned on the wall scanning my schedule. I still couldn't shake off that feeling that I saw the first teacher that introduced the school... and I feel like I've seen that secretary too.

Eh, I probably saw two people who looked like them and that's why they seem familiar.

Someone leaned over my shoulder startling me, it was Luffy. He scanned over my schedule with observant eyes that didn't fit his personality. He seemed much more mature and smart in that moment.

"Yay!" He cheered, "We have some of the same classes!" Then again maybe not. I folded my schedule and put it into my pants pocket. Kid seemed to be looking around again.

Had Killer still not shown up? That's definitely strange, he didn't seem like one to run away from school. Well yeah sure he could've, but this is the only human live around for miles.

So unless you want to get lost, eaten, killed, starve or die of dehydration then the smartest option would be to take the train back to your home.


Hmm... So Killer disappeared? What do you guys think happened to him?!

Hope you enjoyed!
