Alistair loosened his tie a little bit, tugging on it slightly with one hand as his other one spun a pen around and around with absent-minded skill. The teacher gave him a little annoyed look, which he ignored. Another day, another boring eight hours of his life wasted at this god-forsaken school. He'd rather be downtown somewhere, maybe at the park feeding the ducks, maybe at the arcade breaking his last highscore on Space Invaders, or simply at home, on the internet. A new student was coming in today. Well, supposedly, since they were running rather late. He rolled his almost ice-blue eyes as the teacher called their names in attendance, blowing a little of his slightly spiky, black hair out of his face. "Hey." Alistair turned his head to the right a little, "Hm?" "They said the new kid's a girl." Carter whispered, grinning a little, his own dark caramel eyes shining a little excitedly. Of course, the red-head of the class Carter would be the eager one, Alistair thought. "And?" "Well, she could be really cute!" he said, in a louder whispers. "CARTER BENTON!" the teacher scolded, making the class laugh and Carter blush a little at being caught. To Alistair's left, his other friend Nairne who had blonde hair and green eyes huffedin amusement, smirking at Carter. "Idiot." Just as the class was settling down, the door came sliding open with a loud THWAP!
