    Acacia was going to the lake to read quietly. She was going to read in the library, but decided to enjoy the sun while she could. She had been having a calm day. That is, until some students she didn't completely recognize came over. They were being loud, and annoying. They hadn't seemed to notice her yet, and she liked it that way. She didn't like people who acted like that, especially in public.
    She was about to walk back towards the castle, when they seemed to finally notice her. "Hey, it's the freak." One said. She glared. Oh great, one of those people. "What was she again? Part Goblin?" Another asked. They laughed. "No you idiot, she's too tall. She's half-vampire." A third said. Acacia hated to be talked about like this, it made her sick to see people be so rude.
    Then they had started whispering and she grew worried. What could they be up to? She hoped that they were too distracted to notice her as she tried to walk past them. "Hey, we didn't say it was time to leave." The second one said. She huffed. 'I must have some rotten luck.' She thought. She stepped back from them. "Leave me alone." She said, about to try to go around them again.
    She seemed to amuse them, because they laughed again. What could possibly have gotten them to act like this? Had she done something that she wasn't aware of? Did they just hate vampires or half-breeds? These were the kind of people she feared.
    She barely took a step when one of them took out their wand and pointed it in front of her feet, using the incendio charm. She gasped and backed up quickly. "What is wrong with you?!" She exclaimed. The most sickest of parts was that they were still laughing. They seemed to find this hilarious. She would turn around and run, but that was the forest, it was dangerous and she would get in trouble. But she had glanced that way and they definitely noticed. She could tell because of the look in their eyes and the glances they gave each other, like they were reading each other's minds and had silently agreed on something. The look in their eyes made her back up a bit farther.
    "That's right, leave, go back to where you belong." One teased. She stayed put, until the same person as before cast the charm again at her feet. She shrieked and backed up quickly. "Yeah, go back to your freak of a parent, you freak!" Another yelled, seeming to get excited. They were all seeming to feel the same, and she despised them for it. It went one like that until she was backed almost into the forest, patches of fire on the ground. They had grown louder with the insults and laughter, and she was now completely terrified. They were crazy, completely crazy.
