The silence and darkness are almost oppressive. You can feel them close in on you. Deepen, until you can't see or hear--
Oh god you almost had a heart attack. That'd be the bell, telling you you have five minutes to get your ass to homeroom.
As the bell rings, you hear Mattie swear from behind the shelf and run around the corner. She looks to be wearing ear buds, which she takes off when she sees you. She has brownish-blonde hair, and she's a little heavy, but not fat by any stretch of the imagination. She's wearing all black, like she usually does.
"Oh! Hey Dora, didn't see you." She says with a smile.
