"So, we were thinking of making some revisionsto this years Halloween plans. This means that, Wolfman, you will have to switch with Hyde to make room for Undersea Gal an...blah blah blah blah blah blah.." The Mayor's voice trailed in Xenga's mind. The meeting was as boring as she expected. She was happy to be sitting next to a window, it gave her something better to look at than the back of the melting man's head. She didn't know why, but she couldn't stop thinking about the tree house. She could see a little of it from where she was sitting and- wait a minute. Something caught her eye. Was something..moving? Xenga could barely see it but she could make something out. It looked like..a cage or something. She would've tried to look harder but suddenly "small" witch was tapping on her shoulder. "Jack's about to announce you dear! Pay attention."
"a-announce me? No one ever said anythi-" Her voice was drowned out by a loud cheer as the Pumpkin King took center stage.. "As some of you may have noticed," He started off, "we have a new citizen in our quaint spooky town! Xenga?" She tried to duck her head, but she was spotted. "Ah, YES! There you are! Would you like to come up and say a few words?" Xenga tried to climb over the bench. "Uh..no that's ok..." She resisted, but soon she found herself up infront of every citizen. Well, almost everyone, but she didn't know that..yet.
"Go on Xenga." She stared blankly into all the different faces. "Uh...I'm Xenga... My parents used to live her but we moved and-" Jack interupted her. "Where did you live?"
"Uh..it's not important." Tall witch called out from the crowd. "Sure it is dear! Just tell us!" All the others started cheering for her to say it, with no end in site. Once again she found herself being forced to do something she didn't want to.
"FINE!" She yelled out in anger. The room went quiet. "YOU WANT TO KNOW WHERE I LIVED MY WHOLE LIFE? DO YOU?" Everyone looked at her in suprise. " I LIVED IN THE MORTAL WORLD OK?!!? AND INCASE ANY OF YOU WANT TO KNOW IT SUCKED ASS! YOU TRY BEING THE ONLY ONE OF YOUR KIND, SURRONDED BY PEOPLE WHO ONLY CARE ABOUT PEOPLE LIKE THEM!." She took a breath. "Oh yeah. Don't try to talk to me. I won't like you. I don't like anyone." With that she stormed out. No one said a word. It was so quiet that you could hear the happy crickets outside. Until, of course, jack broke the silence. "uhm... Meeting Dissmissed."
Xenga came home and slammed the door to her room, stomping straight to the bed. She pushed herself as far as she could into the matress. What she was feeling would make many others cry at that moment. But she didn't cry. Crying was for babies. She wasn't a baby anymore. She loosened up went she felt Zare lickking her cheek. She look up, and the little animal was looking at her in qeustion. "No Zare..it didn't go well."
Oh..she aint a very happy camper is she? Only two(mabye one) more chapters until LSB show up! Whoot!
