Two weeks ago Karabela's parents had packed up all their belongings in their small town home of Narrowwood, VA to move out to a boarding school in the mountains of Maine just outside the small town of Riverton. Kare's mother and father had (respectively) acquired history and science teaching jobs at said boarding school. and even though Karabella has had ample time to get used to the creepy stone corridors of Evernight she hated the castle like building now more than ever. the school's regular students didn't even need to arrive for Kare to know she wouldn't fit in, she had known long before this day that she would just be different. it didn't help either that her parents would be her teachers. It was just before dawn and Kare was staring out the window of her empty room of her parents apartment, everything she would need was already moved into her dorm room that she would regrettably be sharing with a total stranger for the school year. The gargoyle perched on the window sill seemed to be mocking her. You wont do it, it said to her in her head, you don't have the guts. It was right. She didn't. she didn't have the guts to stay in a strange place with strangers that she was almost certain she wouldn't fit in with. So she made up her mind, grabbed up her satchel that she had packed the night before with one change of clothes and a Edgar Allen Poe poem entitled 'Nevermore' and left her parents apartment for what she hoped was the last time. as the left she could hear her mother snoring. By the time she made it down what seemed like 10 flights of stairs to the ground floor she already felt paranoid. what if someone was watching her from the shadows? It could very well be a possibility. Her anxiety made her pick up the pace and by the time she reached the massive solid oak double doors of the main entrance she was practically running. The doors were easier to open and quieter than she expected but she didn't dwell on it. Once she was out she headed straight for the woods looking to cover as much ground as possible before anyone realized she was gone.
