The Garden

Extracts from this document...


The Garden I remember my first day of finishing school clearly. Nightingale finishing school for Girls was buzzing with pupils, ready for the new school year ahead of them, and telling tales of their . I felt out of place. It might have been that I had the wrong hairstyle, or that my shoes were not the right style, maybe it was the fact that I had nobody to talk to, maybe it was all of these. I know now that it was something much stranger than that, a power that repelled certain people away from me - it was like trying to attract wrong ends of magnets together. I saw a group of girls and decided they must have been the "popular" clique. There was a buzzing air around them, as well as a larger crowd. They were all stunning; with not a hair out of place. They looked over to me as I stood alone. The look was icy, and I presumed this was just because I was the "new girl", an outcast.

We did so more and more, and over the days, weeks and months, the garden appeared to bloom - just like our friendship. The garden's wildlife became more and more stunning.
