It was time for Shara to get ready for school.

She didn’t know why she continued attending Harrison Creek High School, especially when it was revealed that there were several students that were secretly running the school. How and why no one informed the principal of that never ceased to astound her.

She was going to be doing the revealing, mind you.

Shara got dressed and went to the kitchen to make herself some lunch. She could care less about the “school’s” policy on homemade lunches. Her parents weren’t about to pay for school lunches, not when she could always bring her own lunch from home.

With lunch made and sitting by her bag, Shara sat down to breakfast, being aware that even though the school served breakfast, she wasn’t about to eat anything that was prepared by the cafeteria workers. Most of the food, according to the students, wasn’t even fit for human consumption at all.

After breakfast, Shara grabbed her things and headed to the park to wait for the school bus. Several kids had been there during the time that she had her breakfast and made her lunch. Those poor kids had to follow the “school’s” rules or else they would risk getting in serious trouble.

But not Shara, who was known as a risk taker. She would not follow the rules of a few misguided “students” whose one desire is to take over the school and not allow the principal to do his job. She knew better than that.
