Her eyes showed complete disinterest as Sam blabbed on in front of her, going on and on. There was an obvious change in his tone and Frida quickly knew what he was going at but he didn't let that get to her. She didn't flinch or move and inch when he had leaned towards her nor did she look away. Well, she did for a moment, to peek at the markings that poked into her line of vision but looked back at him. There was no spark in her eyes or anything, she wasn't even sure if she was paying attention to exactly what he was saying.
"Are you done, now?" she squeaks, tilting her head to the left slightly and raising an eyebrow. The A-classman was quick to end the conversation and announce his leave, kicking back his chair before anyone could say anything. Frida only let out a small chuckle and smiled.
That smile quickly faded away as Alice began telling them off. A frown slowly formed on her lips as she listened, leaning back into her seat a bit. Alice was someone who was genuinely nice to her - a type of person that comes by very rarely for someone like her. Despite her tactless and snarky attitude, her new friend stuck by her. It wasn't out of fear either, so that kind of made her feel guilty that Alice was disappointed with her. At least that's what she assumed. Plus, what Alice was going on about was totally right. Ever since that talent show thing they had, it was pretty obvious that their little group or whatever it was had a lead on something about the school - which could easily get them all in trouble that they couldn't even imagine. Sticking together and putting their brains in gear would probably be the smartest option - although it would probably also get them killed. However, with how she saw it, only they seemed to have the ye to see something was up. Everyone else was oblivious, so even though them sticking together could possibly get them killed - it also seemed like their best chance of surviving. But of course, the petite female stayed quiet. It would so ruin her reputation if she retreated, relied on others or did something like follow orders. Hah.
Frida's smirk returned when Sam's comment chimed in, "Ms. Zeus-From-Hades? Hah. I like that." she barked, not letting what he called her become an insult, and sat up straight once more. Her cherry eyes glided through the numbers of the list of books, the last one obviously strange as pointed out by both Lex and Alice. She pursed her lips together for a moment, thinking. She racked her brains on it and began sputtering out her ideas, "Perhaps it's hidden somewhere in the history section? Like, I mean, a hidden section. Secret passage? I don't know. Something of that sort. Or maybe it's hidden in a book? Like, it's enclosed in a book? Or how about we just go there and look for it like who knows? Maybe it's a special book for just us to find. Destiny, if you'd like to call it like that."
Your writing is superb! I can basically visualize everything in my head as I read through each scene. I'm definitely hooked as well - I'm going to come by KHV more often now hueheuheu but yeah! I can not wait to see how the story progresses! This is so wonderful!
