September 1st, 2029

First day of school today… Not sure what it will be like, but being away from mum and dad will be good for them. No more stress of a freak as a son. Anyway, I’m sure I’ll fade to the background easy enough.

Great, I’m sharing a room with a hip-hop basketball fan. He’s nice enough, but I’d wish he would leave me alone. I’m no jock… I’m not even a nerd. I’m nobody, and that’s fine by me…
Mr. Aaron Anderson himself gave four others and me a tour around his academy. He even showed us a hidden tunnel because according to him we’re special… He seemed to know of my abilities, or whatever, and the others were freaks too… A girl who changes into a car and stuff like that. I don’t even know how my power works. Maybe I’ve got the power of deep freeze myself in my sleep, would be just my luck…
Anyway, Mr. Anderson’s son can run super-fast. Why is my power not cool like his? At least I’m not called Junior, should count my blessings…

Oh god, Oh god, Oh god… I’m finished. It took one day to blow everything. Aaron Jr. broke his arm after we went out for a drink. I knew I should’ve stayed home, but noooo… peer pressure won, again… I’m such a dimwit. I had a bit of fun though… Drinking beer and stuff. But when we came back, the door was locked and Aaron tried to climb to his second story window. Gravity’s a female dog, I guess. He did’t scream though. I would’ve cried like a baby, so it’s good I did not break anything. Crying like a baby is not good for the image and such… But I went to the secret ‘hero-tunnel’ that Mr. Anderson had shown us and it will be sooner or later when they know I’ve been there in the middle of the night. I’m so f**ked… I knew being away from my parents would not last long…
T., my room-mate and some other guys wanted to know how I got back in. T. was with us the night before… I made up a lie about some tunnels of the old school, but changed that story after realising they wanted to see them. I told them I found another door that was open. Not as cool as underground tunnels, but I’m not trying to be cool… They seem to get it, they left me alone afterwards. Maybe that’s better. I’m not gonna be around long…

New freaks entered the school today, two rich kids, son and daughter of some half famous singer.
We met them officially when Mr Marquez called us to the training room to show what we got. I really did not want to. Some German kid and a Korean girl entered the hidden gym as well. Great. This place is crawling with supers. Just my luck.

Bot-girl shoved me when Marquez called a volunteer. It’s happening again, allready…

Got some studying done though, in the woods…

September 3rd, 2029

I entered some clubs to get my grades up. Everyone is excited but i’m not very much so. It’s not like i’ll even be able to bond with my fellow loosers. At least they won’t pick on me, I hope.

There was an illusionary fire in the school. I did some research and the place might be haunted… Not my problem, I guess, but I wonder whose ghost dwells these halls.

September 4th, 2029

d**n. My quiet place got invaded by the rich new girl. She minds her own business, however, so that’s ok, I guess. Couldn’t hardly tell her this was my space, could I. I lack the backbone for that.

September 5th, 2029

I officially aced my first prexam, and entered a few clubs. Hurray for me. I also had to hear T bragging to his mates about sex that never happened…
