Austin clutched the straps of his back pack, pulling it tighter against his back as he stared at the entrance to the academy. Red Ivy Academy. This would be the school he'd spend the remainder of his school-boy days in, far away from his friends. With a sigh and a deep breath, he made his way up the steps to the intimidating entrance. Sure, he had gotten into trouble back at his old school and been kicked out. He should be thankful for this opportunity to continue his education. Yet, he found the academy strangely intimidating. It wasn't just the fact that he was starting at a new school halfway through the first semester, the entire place sent chills up his spine. Another deep breath and he mustered up the courage to push the front door open and step inside. He did his best to ignore the stares of the students already milling about the hallway as he made his way to the office to get his class schedule and a map. Once that was complete, he set off in search of his locker. Five minutes later, he muttered an exclamation under his breath and crumpled up the map. He almost threw it up, but ended up stuffing it in his pocket instead. "Useless..." He'd just have to find it by himself. He was too stubborn and antisocial to ask for assistance. At least, thats what the shaggy-haired brunette told himself.
