“Hey Jade, since I am new to everything I should know outside the school booklet?” Katra asks as she sits down on the other chair.
“There are plenty of things you should know. I will tell you a few and let you experience the others.” Jade begins as Katra looks a bit annoyed.
“To start off there is the student social societies. There are three of them freaks, angels, and the suck ups. I do not care much about those who think they are perfect little angels or those teacher pets. So yea I am a freak and love it.” Jade explains to Katra, who says “cheers” to being a freak.
“Now there is a few awesome personnel; they let us stay out longer from curfew and help those not sucking up and being perfect. I will tell you a few I know and trust me when I say this be good to them.” Jade tells Katra, who smiles.
“The last thing I will tell you is stick with me and my friends. We all look out for each other and others who need it. There is so much more about this academy that we are still trying to figure out.” Jade finally tells Katra.
“Thanks, and when will I get to meet these said friends you have?” Katra asks Jade, who gives a mischievous smile.
“In due time fresh blood. So what is your schedule for classes?” This time Jade asks something of Katra.
“First class is mathematics two, second class gymnastics three, lunch; then my last two classes are artistic cooking,” Katra tells Jade, who was looking at her surprised.
“You’re a first year, and you are in those classes… how!?” Jade asks feeling dumbfounded.
“Well, well I am. I am kind of brain smart but trust me I can be dumb as a rock.” Katra tells Jade, who is pinching her temple.
Jade then got up quickly, forgetting why she was coming back to her dorm. She rushes to the counter and swipes a card from her wallet then sighs happily. She looks over at Katra and motions her to come over.
“Slice your school id card, and see how many credits you have?” Jade tells Katra, who nods and smiles know school credits are used as money and the only two ways to get credits is doing well in classes and jobs you can accept from the school.
“Looks like I start with seven hundred and fifty. Is that good?” Katra asks and Jade nods.
“Yea, looks like you did well with the surveys. I only started with two hundred and fifty, keep track on how much you got. Also, make sure to do jobs ever once in a while. Do not do what I did and run out, it sucks.” Jade tells Katra, who makes her way to the front door.
“Want to come along? I am going to get dinner.” Jade asks as Katra nods following Jade.
“Do me a favor, though, do not look like a lost puppy following me everywhere ok.” Jade finally tells Katra, who hesitates before nodding.
Both girls left the dorms to another building. Inside felt like a mall as they enter to a food court, Katra looked around seeing all sorts of restaurants and cultural foods from all around. Looking at the three floors worth of food.
“You look rather amazed, well this is where we part.” Jade began as Katra was snapped out of amazement.
“Can’t we eat together?” Katra asks Jade, who sighs.
“Sorry I have a prior engagement with some friends, and if I brought you over with warning is well… annoying to some of us.” Jade tells Katra, who nods understanding.
Katra split up with Jade to look for something she wants to eat. She looked around till she found a sushi court. She simply loves sushi and got some spending seventy-five of her credits. She found a place to eat away from some people. As she ate, she felt lonely until…
“HI!” A metalized girl said hugging Katra.
“What reason does this human eat alone?” The girl spoke as Katra got a good look at this strange girl.
The girl looks metallic as well human. She had short orange hair pointing out as some robot limbs coming out in front of the ears. Her red eyes show the expression of happiness. She wore the same style of the school uniform as a second year.
“Hi, well I am new and do not know anyone,” Katra told the robot, girl.
“Oh, I am F-Alty nice to meet you..” F-alty eyes glow scanning Katra. “Katra.”
“Okay, so are you an actual student or a project of some sort?” Katra asks F-alty, who smiles.
“Believe it or not I am an actual student, my creature made a mistake and made me too human. So in doing so the school decided to try letting me be a student then to deactivate me.” F-alty tells Katra, who was not sure if that was wise a wise choice of the school.
“They also programmed me to make sure everyone follows the rules if you don’t I can use force,” F-alty tells Katra, who now completely understands why the academy did this.
“So how human did your creature make you?” Katra was curious.
“No, just no Katra. I know everything about you even you being a lesbian.” F-alty tells Katra, who freaks lowering her head, shutting her eyes, and covering her ears.
“No, no that is not true. Sorry, you must have an error I am not a lesbian.” Katra says in a low voice.
“Adding to the data base you’re a closet lesbian,” F-alty says making Katra shrink in her seat.
F-alty could see Katra panicking about this and sighs. “I just double checked my system Sorry I got confused with you and another Katra.”
Katra opens one of her eyes then regains her composure. She then looks around seeing no one was staring at her. Sighs of relief and smiles at F-alty “thank you.”
“You should not be ashamed of it you know. It makes you different and unique, and in my program that’s cool. As for your question, human enough where I do need to sleep to restore my energy. So I do not eat, poop, or have a proper baby, maker.” F-alty tells Katra with a smile.
Katra listens to F-alty as she finishes her sushi. She looks at F-alty thinking for a moment till she takes out her cell and says “Let’s be friends and exchange numbers.”
F-alty blinks took back by this. She has interacted with many humans once in a while making friends after a couple a minute. She would have asked them to be friends with her but right now after seven minutes and fifty-seven seconds someone asks her to be friends.
“YES! I mean yes I would like to be your friend Katra.” F-alty tells Katra was scaring her a bit yelling her first yes.
“No one ever asks to be my friend or in this short amount of time,” F-alty tells Katra as they exchange numbers.
“To tell you the truth, it is hard for me to approach others. If someone approaches me being nice, kind, or have one of my qualities I will make friends with them.” Katra admits to F-alty, who adds that info to her database.
“I actually plan to grocery shop for myself and my dorm mate. Is there a grocery shop in this building, and do you wish to accompany me?” Katra asks her new friend.
“I have something to do, and just go north of the food plaza. You can find different shops like clothes or supplies, one will be a grocery shop.” F-alty tells Katra, who smiles and shakes hands with each other.
Katra did as she did and went grocery shopping, she came out with a shopping cart full. She did not want to take the cart back to the dorm and began to curse herself. She had bags up and down her arms, two soda packs one under each armpit, and holding two bags with her mouth. She carried all of it to her dorm room like that till she got to the door.
Hoping Jade was back Katra knocks by kicking at the door. After a minute Katra thought Jade was not in till the door opened. Jade was face to face with Katra and the groceries. Jade laughs and quickly takes a picture of Katra with all of the groceries annoying Katra. Jade decided after a moment to help since Katra did shop for both of them.
“Was it necessary to take my picture of me like that? Wait, don’t answer I already know the answer. I would have done the same.” Katra says to Jade as they put the groceries away.
“You know me too well, by the way, thanks for grocery shopping. You got a lot how much did you spend?” Jade asks as Katra answers two hundred and thirty-four credits.
“Wow, you did not need to spend that much,” Jade says feeling she might have to make up for some of it.
“Don’t worry about it, trust me. Hey, we have to eat, this way we do not have to spend too much at the food plaza.” Katra tells Jade, who did not think about it that way.
“Well, the day is almost over, I am going to take a shower then go to bed,” Katra tells Jade, who nods and tells Katra “night.”
