Etoile Series by Desiree Etoile
[ - ]
I walked out the front door of our one-story home, a black school bag slung over my shoulder. "Bye, Mom!" I yelled over my shoulder as I jogged down the front steps and to my car. My mom, dad, and I have lived here for six years. I pulled out my keys to the small, black Bug car sitting in the driveway and unlocked the doors, hopping in quickly. I put the keys into the ignition and pulled out of the driveway slowly, then started in the direction of Carmel Valley High. I am Desiree Etoile, and I live in the small coastal town of Carmel Valley, California. As I drive past other nice houses lined up along the pavement, I rolled down the window and let the soft, salty breeze blow through my long, wavy, golden hair that always shines in the sun. Unfortunately, there are few fully sunny days in Carmel. As my ocean-colored eyes swept across the other cars ahead of me, I thought about my schoolwork from the night before, which had taken me only a half hour to finish. This was not because I had had little homework to do, though. I was simply because I was a genius. I don't mean to sound arrogant or anything, but I just am. I have always been this way. I have always been smarter than the rest of my class and sometimes I really hate that part about me. I am glad that I do not show it off like some kids would likely do, or else I probably would have been bullied throughout school. I just lie low, and even though I get lonely sometimes without any true friends that I can open up with, but it is worth it. At least, that is what I tell myself.
I arrive at school, driving my little car into the student parking lot. I drive past a crowd surrounding something or someone in interest, but I ignore it. There always seems to be something ‘phenomenal' happening around here. I will probably have heard all about it by the end of lunch, anyway. I pull into an empty parking space near the back and turn off the ignition. I lean back and take in a deep, soothing breath of air before I pull by bag from the backseat and get out of my car. Glancing around, I think, I really hope this day goes better than normal.
