The Hidden Academy Another year was coming to a start here at Harrington, Hidden, Academy, and the students were starting to wake from their hibernation. As each student started to stir, they woke to their second day here seeing that the first was simulated by the eraser. MelikaMelika woke to the normal feeling of being less than whole. It was like a part of her life was missing. Looking around her small dorm, she sighed and pushed back the covers. Standing she looked out the window, it was a cloudy stormy day. Going to pick up her phone, she noticed it wasn’t charged. “Great.” She muttered under her breath. Placing it on the charger, and letting it connect, Melika looked at the device and concentrated. Within a few seconds, the phone became fully charged. Thankfully, Melika was able to do this trick frequently because of the fact no one shared rooms. Grabbing her shower supplies, she went to the bathroom down the hallway. The first floor, which was extended, was the boy’s dorms, and then the second and basement was the girls. Walking in, she noticed a pair of girls in the far off corner injecting themselves with something. Melika rolled her eyes. “Pathetic!” She called out. Jumping into the shower, she scrubbed herself clean. Grabbing her towel that hung outside of the shower itself, she wrapped it around her and went to the sink. She brushed her teeth, and then collected all of her things leaving for her room. Once inside her room, she closed the door behind her and locked the door. She went and changed into the outfit for today. A cute look for a damp fall day. She then continued her morning routine by doing her hair and make-up. When both were perfected, she packed her messenger bag and left her dorm. She popped in her head phones; however, one was blown out. Melika frowned, and then smiled. The best part about being a techno genesis was the fact she could fix, recreate, and do almost anything with technology. Acting like she was adjusting the earbud, she fixed the broken speaker and continued down the hallway, to the cafeteria. She didn’t want to miss breakfast, seeing that they only served high quality food. When Melika reached the cafeteria, she saw the group of cheerleaders at the center table. They waved at her, and she smiled at them. She then went to the left and got into the breakfast line. Jesse Jesse had woken up earlier then all of the other guys at the school. He wanted to get a morning run in for the cross country team, though he was the only one to go in early. He was running in the extended running trail at the school; however, no matter how far he ran against the wall there was never an exit. The wall lead to the watch tower, and then back to the school. Jesse didn’t understand why the academy was fenced in like this. The wall was nine feet tall for Christ sake, no one in their right minds needed that kind of security for a school. No one. Jesse ran back towards the school, seeing that the sun was on the horizon and was rising. Half way to the school, Jesse noticed some of the guards in white out there talking with each other. “Sometimes I feel sorry for the little freaks, and then I remember that they deserve to be erased.” One said. Jesse, by now, had hid himself safely behind a tree as they walked by towards the guard tower. Jesse’s curiosity started to eat at him, but he knew that it was a bad idea to follow them. He sighed and took off towards the dorms. Once inside his dorm, he walked to his closet grabbed his things and went to the showers. He clean himself up, brushed his teeth, returned to his room, and got dressed. Jesse hadn’t realized that no time had passed since he got in the shower. He fully had his time freezing ability, but he didn’t know it. He dried his hair, and grabbed his bag before running out the room to meet his sister for breakfast. When he had arrived in the cafeteria, he had immediately spotted his sister. It was like the twin effect, seeing that both of them knew the other’s location with ease. However, that only seemed to work when the two were near each other. Walking up to his sister, he smiled. “Thanks for saving me a spot.” He said. The line split in front of them, the hot breakfast with the cold breakfast. Mel liked hot, and Jesse liked cold. He waved as he split off to the cold line to get cereal.
