Thank God! The bell had finally wrung, and Delilah was free. She gave her self a mental pat on the back for surviving the first day at a new school. Truthfully, it hadn't been as bad as she thought. Her teacher seemed okay, and she managed to stay up to speed with the rest of the class. Then again, they hadn't started doing any real work yet. Delilah honestly hoped that she would be able to keep up once the real lessons started/
On the other hand, things could have definitely been better. Delilah was in a class with kids that seemed to be a few years younger than her. She presumed that this was because of her dyslexia. She appreciated them putting her in a class where she could keep up, but in a way it was kind of embarrassing. The other kids probably thought she was dumb, or something.
She hadn't managed to make any new friends, either. She had shared some mild conversation with other students. They all seemed pleasant enough, but she wasn't interested in making friends with anyone. Hopefully it wouldn't be too difficult to make friends on this small island. A wave of nostalgia passed over her as she thought of her old friends. She missed them, a lot, but there wasn't much she could do about it. They were far away, and she wouldn't be going back any time soon. Delilah decided she would just have to suck it up, and make new friends here.
Delilah waited until most of the other students had shuffled out of the classroom, before following them out into the hallway. She made her way to her locker, and fiddled with the lock. With a click, it came open. Delilah hurriedly packed her bag, and made her way towards the exit of the school. She wanted to get home, and go for a nice, long jog with Sampson.
However, she was stopped on her way out when she heard a loud cry of pain. She turned around to see a girl her age. This girl was probably in the other class. Delilah recalled passing her in the hallway once or twice. The girl seemed to have dropped a book on her foot. Delilah quickly made her way over to the girl. She picked up a discarded book, and knelt down beside her. "Are you okay?"
