Roses are Red, Violets are Blue: Chapter FourChapter 4
Julianne led me to my classroom and dropped me off at the door, then smiled at me.
"If you want, I can meet you outside here when this period finishes and I can show you around the building at break "
"Um sure, that'd be great thanks " I replied, giving her a smile back, and she hugged me then walked off to wherever she was going for her class. I huffed and glanced at the door to the room, then at my charm bracelet and held onto it tightly as I walked inside.
When I opened the door and stepped inside, I closed it gently behind me. Thankfully, the teacher hadn't gotten there yet, and because of that, everyone inside the classroom was still talking and payed no attention to me as I entered. Being the centre of attention was something I'd never been completely comfortable with, and that was something that being new at school made me worry about. But so far, it kind of looked like I would be able to just blend in and join the crowd without any hassle.

Stepping out of the car and tossing my bag over my shoulder, I looked back to see my dad smiling giving me a warm smile from the driver's side.
"And you're sure you've got everything you need? Pencils, pens, money?"
"Yes, Dad I'm sixteen, not six. I've been to school before." I laughed softly, and he rolled his eyes, still smiling. "Anyway I'm fine. I'll see you at three thirty. I love you." I said and quickly leaned back into the car to peck his cheek lightly, then shut the car door and watched him drive off.
Once the car had gone around the corner, I turned to look at my new school. A large browny-reddish building with other similar-looking buildings added onto it, probably from later renovations. There was a bike and car park on the left hand side of the buildings, and the rest of the front was covered in grass, with picnic benches and trees scattered amongst it all, with a path leading up some steps to the front entrance. The grass area was covered in people

"This is really delicious, Dad," I remarked, smiling as we all ate dinner at the table. There were still moving boxes with things inside up on the countertops, but he'd unpacked most of our kitchen to enable him to make dinner for us all. That was something I admired about Dad; he always wanted us to be healthy, so he'd make his own food rather than buy takeaways, in any circumstance. Most of the kids in my last school thought that was weird, too, but I think it's pretty cool. It was why I was so slim, I guess, since I'd been fed like that since I was really young and my dad even used to make baby food himself rather than buy it. Tonight he'd made casserole, which was one of both mine and Rayna's favourites. "I love it."
Dad laughed and shrugged slightly, popping a forkful of food into his mouth. "It's alright, I guess "
"Don't be so modest, David " I grinned as I noticed the smug smile he was so desperately trying to hide with the chewing of his food. "Serious

I sighed, unloading my bags out of the boot of the car as the moving van pulled up behind us. As the men inside the van got out and started to take out the furniture from the back, I wiped at my still slightly tearstained eyes and dropped them down onto the pavement a few moments later.
"I call first dibs on the bedrooms!" Rayna's voice yelled from somewhere behind me, and I felt my sister roughly push me to the side as she made her way quickly from the car to our new home, causing me to stumble slightly before falling down onto the pavement in front of me. It didn't hurt, thank God, but it gave me a little shock and left me slightly dazed and confused as I dusted off my jeans and stood up. As I did so, I looked down and my eyes lingered on the small silver charm bracelet around my right wrist. It belonged to Amber, originally. Her mom had given it to me a few days after Amber died, telling me that i
