One foot, two foot… ugh why am I here! Eden was in her own little dream world as she wondered along a deserted corridor. She managed to pull her eyes up from the tiled floor, and apparently hypnotic feet, to look into the busy classrooms as she passed them by. She was apparently looking for a room in particular, or so she would say should she pass anyone and be asked what she was doing. She was clearly lost, but that’s easy considering she wasn’t actually paying any attention to the room numbers… or what building she was in.

Eden had just left an introduction meeting with some person, one of the members of staff. Her mother insisted on accompanying her and as usual made it all about herself. Eden was still adjusting to her mother’s “look at me” attitude. A failed beauty queen, she seemed to think life was a stage and everyone she met a judge. Eden didn’t have the heart to hate her, at least she’d always been honest about not wanting her, but she just didn’t understand how such a woman could share the same blood. From her deep magenta hair and spray tan to her long acrylic nails and matching stilettos, Eden only saw a similarity in their plush lips and blue eyes. She was pretty grateful to have inherited both features and luckily not anything else.

Where the fuck are you going Eden? She found herself wondering what exactly her plan was going to be. She couldn’t just walk the halls all day. She felt almost a little creepy just lurking around, not really being part of it. She decided just to find some bathrooms so she could fix her hair and makeup, then I’ll be ready for the world of ‘Ashwick Academy’. She stopped and pulled out a folded up piece of paper and opened it so she could see the map. She made a note to herself to memorize this while she was in the bathrooms. There was no way she was going to be that kid that walks around with a map an inch from her face… no way

LIKE A FIRECRACKER

WHOA I NEVER MEANT TO BRAG, BUT I GOT HIM WHERE I WANT HIM NOW. WHOA IT WAS NEVER MY INTENTION TO BRAG. TO STEAL IT ALL AWAY FROM YOU NOW!

Everest was a free spirit in a sense. She usually roamed the corridors and arts department like a nosy insect, looking for some kind of excitement to brush past her. Right now she was meeting all the new students in the school and introducing them to her life; the stage. It was one thing that she could morph and change to her own self and work with to make something beautiful. Eva had never been able to explain the pure bliss she got from performing, but whenever she did, it was like something came to life inside of her, and her timid behaviour just flew out the window and left behind a beautiful, confident butterfly in its place.

Once she had explained the plays, dramatics and teachings of Ashwick, Everest dismissed the kids and went on to her actual second class of the day, feeling like she was going to end up having a good day, considering that she had missed her first period of maths for the day. Everest wandered around the school quite aimlessly, taking her time to get to class because Modern History really wasn't her best subject. She didn't know why she would need all that knowledge anyway if her life plan worked out for her. She would be on the stage at Broadway; with her mom. It was her biggest wish, one that the naive girl prayed for every night of her dull life.

In the midst of her thoughts and worrying ideas, Eva noticed a lost person in the corridors looking a little frustrated with themselves. Everest had at first cursed every living person when she arrived here in Freshman year because the establishment was so big and confusing, but had also found the map more confusing than helping as well. Eva decided that she ought to help the poor girl out, and walked past her, falling into step with the older girl. "You seem a little lost." She smiled thinly, trying to keep from embarrassing the girl. "I'm Everest, you need any help?" Everest bit her lip, hoping that this new girl wasn't some foreign girl that couldn't speak english.

”Huh?” Eden couldn’t stop herself from blurting out. She looked up, a little startled to see a young girl walking next to her. She was quite pretty… but clearly a little younger then herself. Eden was unsettled by how confident the girl, this Everest, was. ”Yeah, I’m trying to find a bathroom…” Eden muttered half-heartedly, her Australian accent luckily softened. Last thing she wanted was people getting all worked up about her accent and asking her about how Steve Irwin’s death affected her. I didn’t know him personally, I wasn’t a fan, but I learnt the important lesson; don’t play with sting rays. She had the speech down pat by now. Plus it was like a life time ago, but people for some reason still bring it up…

She quickly caught herself, she was zoning out again. She wasn’t ready for this. She always thought the therapy was a bit of over kill, but now she realized she there was a point to it. She counted out her breaths one, in and out, two in… as she tried to remember what she was told. ”I’m Eden” she said, a little breathy as she was still concentrating on her in and out, ”do you know where the nearest bathrooms are? This place is beyond me…” She worked a slightly forced smile onto her lips. Maybe this school will be different. Maybe adding some boys to the mix will make her less bored with people. She needed to engage people, especially when the people are coming to her… at least she wasn’t the one going breaking the ice.

She realized the map was still out in her hands and carefully folded it and stuffed it into the pocket of her light wash denim shorts. As she looked up some of her over styled blonde hair fell into her face. She swept it up and began tying it up into a high pony with one of the hair ties she kept on her wrist. Ugh, what the hell Eden… just go with it!

Everest almost beamed when she heard the accent of the girl. Australian? Oh gosh. it took everything in her power not to pounce on the girl at that very moment in happiness. Everest had spent four years in Australia with her mom for filming purposes and absolutely thrived there. She'd picked up a little accent, but she had also picked up French and British ones as well, so her voice was a mix of all three, plus her American heritage, which she hated. She couldn't help but smile though when she asked where the nearest bathroom was, and kept walking down the hall.

"You were getting pretty close, y'know." She gestured to the little toilet figure to the left of them as they kept walking. "The place kinda sucks with the whole sense of direction and stuff. I still can't get around sometimes. it's horrid." She chuckled before deciding to bring up the accent thing, because she knew most students from other countries would be more shocked and in disbelief if she ignored it completely."Aussie accent, yeah?" She smiled encouragingly. "I lived there for four years when i was in.. primary school." she noted how she remembered their schooling system over there so well. "I was there from Kindy to year three." Everest explained, then motioning for the bath room. "You needa touch up your makeup or is nature just calling?" She laughed then, leaning up against the wall.

Eden looked over to where the girl pointed. Safety is only a few steps away… wait, maybe it’s a trap. She now realized this wasn’t going to plan at all, she might have to make girls bathroom chit chat. What would she talk about? Lip gloss brands? This one is really glossy, but the stick factor is too extreme, do you know of one with high gloss and no stick? Oh, I have this one as well, this one is for dates, it tastes like bubble gum and magic. She just didn’t have it in her. She looked at the girl again. Maybe not, she doesn’t look that superficial, maybe I’m safe.

As she pushed the bathroom door open and held it for the other girl if she wanted to join her. ”oh, just a touch up. My mother seems to think I need to take a more fresh faced approach, she’s banned me from makeup. It makes no sense, she’s like the least natural person I know.” As she moved towards the mirror she took in the facilities. It was nice, or a school bathroom. At least the mirror is clean. She stood before the mirror and just stared at her face. Where to start.

At this point she registered the girl had commented on her accent. ”Oh yeah, ha, busted. I’m trying to keep it on the down low. I’m hoping to climb the social ladder based on perkiness, not my accent.” she smiled a little as she pulled out her foundation to touch up the light dusting she had applied at home. ”So, you lived there huh. Where about did you live? It’s a bit different to here huh.” She smiled slightly as she brushed on her blush, then pouted slightly as she focused on her eyeliner before taking out her nerves on her upper lash line.
