            “There he is!” I told myself. I rushed over to my locker and hurriedly opened it. I examined myself in the mini mirror I had taped to the back of the locker. “Stupid science.” I muttered. I had goggle marks all over my face, it made me look stupid. I pulled my bangs down to try and cover it, but it didn’t work. Resigned to the fact that the marks were there to stay, I did my best to make my purple hair look unforgettable. (It wasn’t hard). I did a little touch up of the makeup on my tiny nose and made sure my brown eyes were rimmed in eyeliner.copyright protection18PENANAOODOun9eLS

            I closed my locker and turned and saw him. Zack, the reason for my vanity. For a while now I had been trying to get him to notice me. But he just never looked my way. Literally not once! Not even the time I fell down that flight of stairs. (Although I was thankfully he wasn't looking then). Out of desperation I dyed my hair purple, and found that I actually liked the color on me. Yet he didn’t even look twice or once for that matter.copyright protection18PENANA5uMpr4VRAM

            He’s coming! I squealed to myself. I did a hair flip and walked in front of him. Nothing! Disgusted I returned to my locker, blowing hair out of my face.copyright protection18PENANACWsLkz0fpf

            “Maybe I’ll dye my hair orange and blue?” I said to myself. "Yeah, a nice neon orange." I muttered. "So bright it will hurt his eyes to look at it. Then he’d have to notice.”copyright protection18PENANAAe3e2xCcMn

            “I like it the way it is.”copyright protection18PENANA4SSRhjVdbw

            I slammed my locker and saw a boy standing there. He was tall with skinny arms and legs and ruffled blonde hair. “Who are you?” I demanded.copyright protection18PENANAZOtszN1z3r

            “Herman.” He said. “Who are you?”copyright protection18PENANAODFSSIquUc

            “I’m Kara.” I said. I took a closer look and saw Herman’s big grey eyes staring back at me. “Can I help you?”copyright protection18PENANASZ4KRm4Mzf

            “Yeah, I got a friend that wants to talk to you.” Herman said. “She’s just outside, come on.” I allowed Herman to take me out into the school parking lot. I followed Herman as he weaved in and out of the parked cars that filled the parking lot. He ferried me all the way across the parking lot and stop besides a beat up old Chevy pickup. Inside the cab was a woman, at least I think she was a woman.copyright protection18PENANAjz3N1CB3cE

            The lady was a shadow, literally. Her skin was pitch black, the kind of darkness you get in a subterranean cave. The only thing about her that wasn’t a shadow was her eyes and hair. Both glowed white faintly. At first I thought it was some sort of body suit, but then I realized it was her actual skin.copyright protection18PENANAu0i9TaSjFM

            “What…?” was all I managed to say.copyright protection18PENANAwyMBjDXnpx

            “Kara, meet Nyx.” Herman said.copyright protection18PENANACJ6Gx8i8bv

            “You have a pretty name.” Nyx the shadow lady said. Her voice was soft and slow, like a tree swaying in the wind.copyright protection18PENANANFv5PogIIW

            “Thank you.” I muttered. “I like your…skin tone.”copyright protection18PENANAueugPNTNbj

            “Thank you.” Nyx said bowing her head. “It’s what makes me unique.”copyright protection18PENANAkN3ruAzNJL

            “It sure does.” I said. And you glowing eyeballs. Those are definitely one of a kind.copyright protection18PENANAiwrNBhcSZV

            “Herman, I need you to go find the other.” Nyx ordered. “I need to speak with Kara.”copyright protection18PENANAOtajKZ7ENi

            “Yeah sure thing.” Herman said happily. “Don’t miss me too much.” He said winking at me.copyright protection18PENANAY862zAC9nl

            I gazed after him. “Who is he?” I asked.copyright protection18PENANAVFSmtuDGmC

            “Herman? Why he’s just like you.” Nyx said. “But let’s not talk about him. How would you like to do a job?”copyright protection18PENANABb6MvRMCwz

            “For you?” I asked.copyright protection18PENANAVuH1whB9rZ

            “No, more like… for the world.” Nyx smiled, even her teeth were black.copyright protection18PENANAvmFnI8RmPe

            “For the world?” I asked confused. “What do you mean?”copyright protection18PENANAZrp6dVXZxu

            “Are you committed?” Nyx asked me.copyright protection18PENANAztZguwy6FZ

            “Hey, I got the other one.” Herman said returning. I turned and saw he was with Zack. My heart died. I quickly gazed at Nyx’s side mirror, my reflection was the same as five minutes ago.copyright protection18PENANA6blLz4UqqJ

            “I heard you have a job for me?” Zack said when he reached the Chevy. He raised his eyebrows at Nyx’s skin, but didn’t question it. My eyes locked on his defined jaw and chiseled arms then they moved up to his face and meet his deep blue eyes and his neat black hair, and I melted.copyright protection18PENANAEpa4wo0uny

            “I have a job for all three of you.” Nyx replied. “If you wish to have it.”copyright protection18PENANAYW1XdwtLC9

            “I already committed.” Herman told us. “Trust me it’ll be worth it.” he said his eyes gleaming.copyright protection18PENANAKJl6uUaokA

            “Alright, I’m in.” Zack said nodding at Herman.copyright protection18PENANA7Z0i4xG414

            If Zack was doing it, then I definitely was. “Me too!” I shouted.copyright protection18PENANACZ0EXeaqZN

            Zack looked at me. “Hey, I’ve seen you before.” He said.copyright protection18PENANAAKwVQ1P0pa

            My insides were preforming gymnastics. “Yeah, I go to school here, like you.”copyright protection18PENANABx9CPe9wja

            “Kara, right?” He asked. Fireworks! Zack knows me, he said my name! “I like the purple.” he said pointing at my hair.copyright protection18PENANAAW9AA6PKxO

            “Thanks.” Best day ever!copyright protection18PENANAy8z53p6Tpv

            “Get in the truck.” Nyx ordered. “You are going to be gods.”copyright protection18PENANA313dDTrMpL

            “Sweet.” Zack exclaimed climbing in. “Gods of what?”copyright protection18PENANAWZH6Ahdp2L

            “Sweet.” I mimicked not really comprehending. I followed Zack into the car and tried to keep my breath from leaving me.copyright protection18PENANAeATNGXcMQC

            “So where are you taking us now?” Herman asked.copyright protection18PENANAiTEl6hey3E

            “To meet the others.” Nyx replied.copyright protection18PENANAj0D06eikEl

            “On Olympus?” Herman asked again.copyright protection18PENANA5SWZGCWToM

            “No.” Nyx responded. “I can’t take you there…yet.”22Please respect copyright.PENANAUFvyGCMYXq
