Here's the sixth chapter in my series about Nancy Drew: Warnings at Waverly Academy. Kind of a boring chapter here, but I guess it's important to set up the storyline about Rachel Hubbard. Even if Nancy probably won't meet her until Chapter 20.
Nancy took a deep breath. She had just finished talking with her new roommate, Corine Meyers, the Queen of Awkward.
I should get things in order here, before I explore the campus, Nancy thought. Waverly Academy for Girls was a pretty big school, but she knew that she would have to spend most of her time here in the valedictorian dorm. After all, this was where all the attacks had taken place.
Nancy turned around. Her side of the room was rather empty. The only thing here that really belonged to Nancy was the bag on the desk.
Nancy reached into the bag and pulled out a framed photograph of her two best friends, Bess Marvin and George Fayne, from their trip on Dread Isle. The only other things in Nancy's bag were a hairbrush and a change of clothes.
I really should have packed more things, Nancy thought as she put the photo down on the desk, next to the...was that a note? Nancy picked it up.
Welcome to Waverly!
Since you just transferred here and don't really have any papers due or exams to study for (unlike the rest of us!), I could really use your help on this project I'm working on. Please come see me as soon as you can; my room's at the other end of the hall.
Thank you so much!
"Someone named Rachel wants me to come to her room," Nancy said.
"Rachel Hubbard," Corine said. "She's in the room at the end of the hall."
"Okay," Nancy said to herself. It would probably be a good idea to make friends with Rachel by helping her with her project. As long as Rachel didn't have any chores for Nancy to do, everything would be fine. Nancy really hated doing other people's chores for them.
