Chapter 1

"Honey, wake up. It's your first day of high school!", Scarlett Adria Jackson's mom said in an irritating sing-song voice.

"Do I have to go to school? I do get good grades, sometimes. And I sometimes help around the house". Her mom rolled her eyes.

"You aren't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer", she said as politely as she could.

"What exactly are you implying, says the person who asked me what the internet was", Scarlett replied snidely.

Clearly she doesn't listen to my legendary stories about the family, Ms. Jackson muttered angrily.

The family had a rough history with the good and evil forces. Scarlett will, soon. But she's not ready yet, she reminded herself. When the time is right. Malum Hampa was the name of the school that Scarlett and her mom had found. Scarlett thought that the school had an ominous feeling about it. Scarlett's mother, Ms. Jackson had thought so too but did not want to admit it to her. She just wanted to get her child in school. That day didn't start off so well.
