"Do I look weird?" I asked Tanya feeling everybody's staring in my direction. My hair had changed, but makeup wasn't allowed in our school, well not that the girls cared. The uniform did look better, in the morning that I put it on. I didn't think I would attract too much attention or if people noticed me enough to care, but apparently, since my incident in the pool, I did gather some popularity. To Aubrey's misfortune.

He was quietly sitting in his usual spot, listening to Miles brag about something stupid I bet. Just a quick second was enough to notice the surprised in his honey eyes. I turned quickly and walk to my seat pretending like he wasn't there.

"Hey, what happened to you?" Angel asked evidently surprised to see me.

"Nothing, what happened to you?" I returned the question, ignoring Cameron's eyes on me.

Yael greeted me and got off my seat motion me to take it. I smiled at him and nodded. I liked Yael, he would never make stupid comments or make the atmosphere uncomfortable for anyone. It felt nice when...
