Being DifferentIt's funny how you can wake up one day and everything's changed. In this case the change wasn't for the best, but for the worst, my death.
It's a month before my 14th birthday. i woke up late for school this morning, again. I hate being late but lately I've been having a hard time sleeping because my mind keeps wondering. I walk in class and everyone just stares at me like i'm an alien, which doesn't help me cause i get self conscious. Luckily my teacher doesn't really fuss about being late.
I hate school, I've always hated school. It's a place where kids come to just be judged and tormented. This is the 8th school I've been to and i''m only 13. I don't have a lot of friends, i'm kind of alone most the time. Harry's my best friend, my only friend, who's a person but he's a boy so he spends most of the time with other guys being idiots and with his stupid girlfriend. She hates me, just like everybody else in this place. I don't mind, i'm going to a better school anyway so everything should be fine.
At home things are better, i live with my aunt, I've never known my dad nor my mum. They got lost a long time ago, i don't even remember what they look like. My aunt's alright, she shouts at me a lot but that's because she says i'm like a zombie. It's true in a way but i'm usually so active and happy. This year things have just been changing.
"Amy! Amy! you're not listening again" she shouts at me again, however, i really wasn't listening that time.
"Did you feed SkyWalker?" She asks
Oh no! I had forgotten all about Sky oh no he's gonna be so mad at me. I run downstairs with a crate full of small fish. Sky's my pet, that's the only thing that's different about me, i have a pet eagle. He's fun to have around and I've had him for a long time, he's my other friend. I've trained him and he understands me.
My aunt says that i found Sky when he was just an egg and one days when i fly, he'll fly along side me. I don't understand what she means by that but maybe i will one day. My aunt also wanted me to start studying Eagles but i don't want to be any more weird than i already am.
