Writing Exercise - Jancy Goes to School -
Today, Jancy Levy was going to have to lift even heavier burdens than her name ever should have suggested in the first place. She rubbed her burning pale face and threw down the cold towel before she slipped over to rattling window in her nightgown. Knowing that the water for bathing was by now lukewarm, she released the restraints on the window and let the flash of storming rain wet her strawberry blonde hair. She rubbed her eyes and with all the power held in her back she closed the windows once she was fully watered. Her blue eyes searched around the room searching for her sleeping friend. All she saw was a note attached to her school uniform. She walked over to the note which wrote: "Went to school already, don't worry, I will tell the teacher you have a fever today. You should rest like normal people. -Arabella" Jancy grabbed her uniform and began to blister around like the storm outside. "I can't believe you Arabella. I didn't ask you to excuse me from school." As she slipped on her badly worn black shoes down the stone staircase she slammed the door and she began to stammer down the stairs. Jancy always felt better when she was running, all the energy and heat would escape from her body and she felt the stress just hover a little higher away from her head. This was not the conditions of her most comforting run. Most of her runs were in a controlled environment when the sun was, for once, high over the sky of Castle Avalonia.She was lucky enough to get into this apprenticeship school. While the work for training up on manner schools were tedious and worthless in all standards, what was nice was the students at graduation had enough right to advertise their skills. Unfortunately, she could feel her skills go out the window with every passing late bell chime. She covered her ears as she heard the evil bell ring once again as she rushed. She pushed the little door tightly open with her back and stuck her hands into the storm once again, but this time there was no thrill to sliding uniform first into the castle doors. She rubbed off as much mud as she could staring down at her bag, it had leaked open to reveal her absorbent sponge papers that were once her textbooks. She closed her bag quickly hoping to avoid that as the bell continued to ring for the third time. She had only five more rings left and she still had so far to run to. She took off her shoes and socks, hoping to decrease the weight of her body as she rushed through like the leaf in the storm outside the doors. She began to count through the bells to see if she would make it to school before the teachers would lock the door. She couldn't have it happen again, not another day of servant work. She was trying to move up in the world and make her Auntie proud. She saw the class door as she turned the stone corner, with the last gust of energy she had left she slammed the door open.
