"I'm Sam, I'm new here so you don't know me. I might not stay here too long." said the new boy.
Ana shuffled her feet and sighed, I should have gone up and talked to him, she thought, Then he's probably want to stay longer . . . maybe everyone else would be nice to him too.
However, the following conversation was anything but nice.
"You know you guys are late, right??" Peregrine bellowed at the new comers.
"You weren't exactly the first one here Peregrine," Toren puffed.
Well, I was the first student in here . . . Ana thought, deciding not to speak up.
"Yeah well, I wasn't a million years late unlike some people!" Peregrine shoot back at Toren.
Ana shifted uncomfortably in her seat, wishing her classmates weren't so aggressive.
"I do, thank you very much!" the new girl stated firmly.
Ana focused on the apparatus instructions, trying to block out the conversation. Her apparatus was almost complete.
"What do you think, Snoelle?" Ana whispered, showing her desk mate her almost-complete project.
