The cafeteria is quiet, but the minds of my classmates are not. Who are these people?
There's the redhead a few tables up and on the other side. Gets in trouble for talking about twice a day. She seems creative, always has her bag decorated, always coloring, always listening to music. Personally, I don't think she's really a student. I think she's an author, researching an expose on the high school crises in America. And when she writes that book, we'll all be famous... ish.
Down the table from me, there's a tall boy with blondish hair. He always has this secretive smirk on his face, like he knows something about me and finds it funny. I don't think he's a student, either. I think he's a local drug lord, recruiting people to do his work here on campus. I hope he's in the redhead's book, because then he'll go to jail and get what he deserves for selling meth and other illegal addictive substances to high school kids. Hah.
At the front of the room, there's a VERY quiet brunette. She's small, and really only speaks to one other person here- the small fuzzy violinist from India. I'm not sure, but I've got a pretty good feeling that they're spies. Not from India, though. Or Russia or China or anywhere on this earth. I believe that they're visitors from a different galaxy. Obviously a superior form of intelligence, they've been sent here to gather information about our species because their world has been destroyed and the survivors need a place to take refuge.
I have other suspicions, of course. Another redhead, two tables up from me, seems to have a secret or two. She acts like she feels awkward all the time. You know who else seemed to feel that way? Superman. So that settles it- she's a superhero. My guess is the Flaming Girl. That would explain the red hair. Also why she always thinks it's hot in here.
One of my personal favorites is the shaggy- haired punk who always has his headphones on. Pretending to be asleep or listening to music all the time is a clever disguise, but I'm not fooled. I know he's a movie maker. He's working on a new film and he's a method actor. By spending his days in a high school, he places himself in the mindset of a student, thus preparing to take on the lead role.
Then there's the blond. Very athletic, very smart, very funny. I think she works for the U.S. government, to be perfectly honest. Intelligence, I'm sure, and working on a very important but tedious project. Luckily, she's been placed on assignment with a hot partner. He's at the other campus, but they spend time together off the job. Personally, I think they'll get together. There's obvious chemistry there.
You know what my favorite part of study hall is? They all think I'm a student. Not a single one of them knows that I work for the CIA. The agency sent me here to pose as a student. They need new agents. You know why I know so much about my classmates? Because I HAVE TO.
And you thought study hall was boring.
