I leave the cafeteria with a bounce in my step. Crafting class: the class I've been anticipating. The reason I came here.
I am greeted by Luna as I enter. "Welcome to crafting class! The teacher will be here soon. You're paired up with Selenia Mustardlook. Have a seat by her!" she gestures to a girl with long red hair sitting at a desk.
What is it with this school and pairing people up?? Whatever happened to independence?
I sit down silently, avoiding eye contact with my partner. "Oh, um, hi,"she says nervously, "You're sitting with me?"
"So it seems," I mutter, ". . . against my will."
I see her avert her eyes and gaze awkwardly at her books in my peripheral vision. I start pulling out my supplies. It shouldn't be too bad. . . just as long as she doesn't mess with my stuff.
