The school was huge, she couldn’t believe how huge. Only eighteen years old and she had been transferred to such an impressive place because she showed promise. Delia just stared at the giant structure that stood on the other side of a beautifully placid lake. She took a deep breath and took to the trail that snaked its way around the lake. She was to go straight to the headmaster and show him her transfer papers so he could sign them. She hummed as she walked, a smile pulling at her lips. She was in such high spirits that she almost didn’t notice the man standing on the bank of the lake as she rounded its east side. She came to a stop, studying him. He just stood there, his eyes staring out across the lake, the small breeze tugging at his hair. His hands were in his pants pockets, his posture relaxed. There was something odd about him, something she couldn’t quite place, but she could feel there was a darkness about him. She blinked and shook her head, then continued on, pretending like she didn’t notice him.
