You sat in the lunchroom, opening up your lunchbox. It was the usual. Jelly sandwich, carrots, chips, and Powerade. School always went by slowly for you. Especially when you have to wake up to go to school.
Seven AM, wake up in the morning. Gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs. Gotta have- Good god, not that song again.
Anyway, you sat at your usual table.
You always were no matter what. No one cared to sit by you at all. Maybe because they don't want to be seen with the biggest outcast of the school. Yet, you've had people sit by you. Very nice people. But, there's another problem.
Taylor was pretty much on top of the school's popularity caste. Model figure, clothes more expensive then your wardrobe combined, overall the stereotypical prom-queen cheerleader captions.
Why her? Easy. The people who ever sit with you, she comes right over to. All of them are always new students at your highschool, so they want new friends. Well, she always comes and swoops them away from you. Totally changing them from extremely nice to extremely mean.
Thus, you have no friends at school. And you have no social life. And no one even wants to have anything to do with you. And
Well, you probably get the picture.
Anyway, you were eating your lunch while looking out the window. Its what you always did. You didn't care if it was cloudy or sunny, you just wanted to see the sky. Mainly, you weren't near any windows in class. That, or there were none in a class to begin with.
You sighed. If only someone would have the heart to be your friend instead of having Taylor take them away.
But to you, it seemed like a long lost hope. Who knows, you might even have to get a date on one of those 'find your true love' sites or die unmarried. Which would just suck.
As you were about to turn away, you saw from the corner of your eye, a streak. Like a brief flash of light shooting through the sky. Kind of like a shooting star
Only it's the middle of the day.
You shook it out o your head. Must of been your imagination or something. You then finished your lunch just in time for the bell to ring, signaling for you to depart to your last three classes. At least the day is almost over.
Throughout the halls, you were tripped by other people and feeling notes being stuck to your back.
It was a daily occurrence for you, truthfully. Well, at least you would be free from this, because it was finally the end of the day. All you had to do is walk through the park to your apartment.
You lived alone. Your brothers and sisters are all over the country and your parents have to be in a nursing home near your oldest brother. Where he was in a completely different state far away. Yeah, you were lonely. Really lonely.
You entered the park near the school once you threw all the notes on your back away. As you felt the fresh breeze of wind gently run through your (h/l), (h/c) hair, you noticed someone on a nearby hill under a tree. This person had a very peculiar skin color
Gray? Gray skin? You curiously went up to him carefully with quiet steps. When you now saw this person up close, you gasped a little.
He had horns.
Sure, they were short and nubby, but. He. Had. Horns. You carefully bent down and poked one of them to see if they were real, which resulted with a huge twitch from this guy.
They were real. And did that hurt him? You felt really bad for that, but you just had to make sure. You decided to shake this person
And see if he was okay. "Hey
Are you alright?" you asked. He responded with a quiet groan.
Thank god. He's alive. So, what the heck do you do with him? You can't just leave the poor guy in the park. Even if he wasn't human, it would be wrong to ditch him.
Finally, you flung one of his arms over your shoulder and steadied him up. Now you noticed a gray symbol on his shirt. Was that the horoscope for Cancer? Whatever, you have to get to your apartment and help him!
So, you carefully dragged him through the park and towards the apartment complexes across the street from it. You crossed the street then walked up the steps as carefully as you could to not hurt him.
At last, you had reached your apartment and dug out the key to it out of your pocket. With it inserted into the lock and a turn, you could feel a click. You opened the door with your free hand then shut the door with your foot. Now, you could finally lay him down. So, you carefully laid him down on top of your couch.
Who and what exactly is he? And where did he come from? Well, he's in your care now and you need to take care of him until he's alright. You gently pulled some covers over him and made sure he was warm. Even though he was on a couch for rest, you've fallen asleep plenty of times on that couch and slept as well as any person.
You then went into another room and quietly closed the door. You had to at least do your homework, right? You also can't wait until the person/alien wakes up. Maybe he could tell you what he is and why he's here! Who knows? Maybe you can help him find a way back to who knows where he came from.
Just have to wait and see.
