By the time the end of class approached, Jade and Skye had come to a conclusion: Mr. Dean was by far the most boring teacher that they had the misfortune of having. He had a plain face, with plain clothing along with a very monotone voice that made his student's eyelids feel heavier every time they heard it. Mr. Dean was also the only teacher that the two girl's had that assigned them homework on the first day. Needless to say, by end of class both girls were eager to leave.
"Thank goodness that's over," Jade mumbled as they were on their way to the dorm.
"I agree," Skye said. "Man was that guy boring! I swear I almost fell asleep like five times!"
"You and the rest of the class," Jade let out a hearty laugh.
Once they arrived at their dorm they set their things down and pulled out their phones. Both were so eager to call their parents and tell them how their first day at Sonser went.
Jade excitedly dialed the numbers of her mom's phone and waited for her to pick up.
"Hello?" the familiar voice of her mother said after a few beeps.
"Hey mom!" she said.
"Jade! How was your first day? I've missed you so much at home," her mother exclaimed.
"I've missed you too, Mom. It is amazing here! My first day was. . .interesting."
"What happened?" she asked.
"Well, first of all my teacher for Life Drawing never came, so me and the rest of my class ended up sitting outside her classroom door for the entire period. But then my next class went very well. I'm really excited about it! However the class I just came from was possibly to the most boring thing I've endured in my entire life."
"Dean, huh?" her mom asked with a laugh.
"Yes!" Jade exclaimed.
"How are your roommates?"
"They're really cool, I think you'd like them. There's Skye," she looked over at Skye, who was happily talking to her mom. "I think you'd like her. You'll never be bored around her, that's for sure! Then there's Iris. She really quiet, but very, very sweet."
"Well that's good sweetie. I'm glad everything's going well. It'll get better once you get the hang of things. I have to go now, someone's calling, but I'll talk to you later. I love you!" her mom said.
"I love you too, Mom," Jade said as she hung up the phone. She looked over at Skye, who had just ended her conversation with her mom. They were both beaming. Even though Jade's day hadn't exactly met her expectations, she was still ecstatic to be here.
Iris walked out into the living room trying to dry her damp hair with a towel. While she waited for Jade and Skye to return, she had decided to relax and take a bath. "How was class?" she asked them.
"Boring!" Skye exclaimed, "And we have homework!"
"How about you?" Jade asked Iris.
"Mrs. Carter never came, so I left. I wonder why she was out," she said.
Jade shrugged. "Maybe we'll find out tomorrow, but in the mean time, who wants to explore the campus?"
"Yes!" Skye said.
Iris nodded as well. "Just let me get the hair dryer. It won't take long, I promise." She quickly dried it and put in up in a small ponytail. "Ready," she said.
"Alright, let's go!" Jade exclaimed. "Where to first?" she asked the others.
"Hmm. . .what about the library?" Iris suggested.
"Okay!" Jade exclaimed.
They all headed over towards the library. It was relatively empty with the exception of a few people. Of those few people Jade spotted Sawyer writing in his notebook a few tables back.
Ugh, she thought, I thought I'd gotten away from him. He's still writing in that same notebook. You'd figure it'd be full already with all the time he spends writing in it.
She tried to go in the opposite direction of him, hoping he wouldn't notice.
"Who are you looking at Jade?" Skye asked playfully. Her eyes searched through the room until they finally landed on Sawyer. "Oh it's a boy! Is he the guy you were talking about earlier?"
Jade gave a displeased nod.
"What's his name?"
"Sawyer," she answered.
The corners of Skye's mouth curled forming a mischievous grin. "Jade and Sawyer kissin' in a tree k-i-s-s--"
"No Skye. Over my dead body," Jade muttered.
Iris looked over towards Sawyer. "He doesn't seem to be too bad."
"He doesn't seem bad, but it's nearly impossible to have a conversation with the guy," Jade said as she took a few books of their shelves and flipping through their pages. "And he's not like you Iris. He's not shy. He just flat out ignored me. I mean a person should at least have the common courtesy to respond to another person who is trying to make conversation with them. I mean goodness didn't his parent's teach him any manners?"
The librarian looked directly at Jade and gave a loud shush. "Sorry," Jade whispered.
"I think he's kinda cute. . ." Skye muttered with a grin. "And I think you think the same thing!"
Jade rolled her eyes and looked towards Sawyer. I mean sure, perhaps he's remotely attractive, but his personality ruins that completely.
Sawyer looked up from his notebook and saw Jade. He gave her a perplexed look.
"Crap," she muttered, shoving the books back onto the shelf. "Okay, I think it's time to go."
"But we just got here?" Skye said.
"We'll come later, I promise," she told her.
Skye nodded and followed Jade and Iris as she heard the loud sound of her stomach growling. The two others turned around and laughed. "You hungry Skye?" Iris asked.
Jade smiled. "Come on, let's go eat."
