            “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 protection5PENANABASAPpz4WV

            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 protection5PENANAbHQm928RSd

            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 protection5PENANAWKUYiTemgg

            “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 protection5PENANAcRQ4rGt1Lq

            “I like it the way it is.”copyright protection5PENANAXX8OjiQs9I

            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 protection5PENANAG5sA4Kui7K

            “Herman.” He said. “Who are you?”copyright protection5PENANAzjCqo36S5S

            “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 protection5PENANAi3PrR8JHBT

            “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 protection5PENANAphYSS2DmlK

            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 protection5PENANA7U3JksNrkT

            “What…?” was all I managed to say.copyright protection5PENANAjCW93NhNuT

            “Kara, meet Nyx.” Herman said.copyright protection5PENANAGUaFN3Hqq3

            “You have a pretty name.” Nyx the shadow lady said. Her voice was soft and slow, like a tree swaying in the wind.copyright protection5PENANAaxYehjG4K0

            “Thank you.” I muttered. “I like your…skin tone.”copyright protection5PENANAX4DTdHHvvc

            “Thank you.” Nyx said bowing her head. “It’s what makes me unique.”copyright protection5PENANAob7zRUDzk3

            “It sure does.” I said. And you glowing eyeballs. Those are definitely one of a kind.copyright protection5PENANACvBBKSUqXF

            “Herman, I need you to go find the other.” Nyx ordered. “I need to speak with Kara.”copyright protection5PENANArUJ5OXNwsi

            “Yeah sure thing.” Herman said happily. “Don’t miss me too much.” He said winking at me.copyright protection5PENANAIRuPqlJ3U4

            I gazed after him. “Who is he?” I asked.copyright protection5PENANA7xzI8kB3Ky

            “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 protection5PENANAIctriip5OR

            “For you?” I asked.copyright protection5PENANAowISl9e5d9

            “No, more like… for the world.” Nyx smiled, even her teeth were black.copyright protection5PENANA9kHJ2Q3ETO

            “For the world?” I asked confused. “What do you mean?”copyright protection5PENANAcB1F3jXspL

            “Are you committed?” Nyx asked me.copyright protection5PENANAkNi3GEcUJp

            “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 protection5PENANA4TKLDNBHru

            “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 protection5PENANAvD6xjaRhDg

            “I have a job for all three of you.” Nyx replied. “If you wish to have it.”copyright protection5PENANA3X4l1KZeFJ

            “I already committed.” Herman told us. “Trust me it’ll be worth it.” he said his eyes gleaming.copyright protection5PENANAEJCovgb6XC

            “Alright, I’m in.” Zack said nodding at Herman.copyright protection5PENANABtgI0zSSRw

            If Zack was doing it, then I definitely was. “Me too!” I shouted.copyright protection5PENANA9UudgvYgJE

            Zack looked at me. “Hey, I’ve seen you before.” He said.copyright protection5PENANAZnoCMTSYZQ

            My insides were preforming gymnastics. “Yeah, I go to school here, like you.”copyright protection5PENANABBjRjkrcci

            “Kara, right?” He asked. Fireworks! Zack knows me, he said my name! “I like the purple.” he said pointing at my hair.copyright protection5PENANAIldcztIyJr

            “Thanks.” Best day ever!copyright protection5PENANAcJPAlCueAu

            “Get in the truck.” Nyx ordered. “You are going to be gods.”copyright protection5PENANA4b5n3pIuBU

            “Sweet.” Zack exclaimed climbing in. “Gods of what?”copyright protection5PENANANkg1xPufne

            “Sweet.” I mimicked not really comprehending. I followed Zack into the car and tried to keep my breath from leaving me.copyright protection5PENANAHAYxbk9FyK

            “So where are you taking us now?” Herman asked.copyright protection5PENANA9DVf1YEJtf

            “To meet the others.” Nyx replied.copyright protection5PENANADhATi7JNm7

            “On Olympus?” Herman asked again.copyright protection5PENANA23H0ASkKyT

            “No.” Nyx responded. “I can’t take you there…yet.”9Please respect copyright.PENANARVarOsyyfV
