Everyone else seemed to be playing around the park, most people were at the basketball courts playing with other students and children on teams. Some others were playing on the playground, mostly the younger children that Alyssa had observed before heading further into the park towards the small forest that resided next to it. She made her way through the forest on a small path that led through it, a few people walked ahead of her and some had strayed from the path to sit under some of the trees. She walked by herself, with her eyes lowered down towards the ground some. Though, occasionally she would look at groups of people sitting together and talking as she walked past them.
She carried a small-medium sized satchel across her chest, it carried some of her school things. Some books, notebooks and a drawing pad. Her arm rested on her bag as she walked. As she walked further she seemed to be alone for the most part and looking around briefly she headed into the trees. She walked through them until she could only see trees on either side of her, where ever she looked. However, looking further ahead she spotted what seemed to be a small pond. She decided to walk a bit further, she hadn't known there was a pond here. She wondered if anyone else knew about it.
As she walked through the trees some more she came to what she had seen. It had indeed been a pond, however not the most beautiful but with a bit of nourishment it could flourish. Walking to the edge of the water she looked down in the water, seeing her reflection for a moment but as she looked past it through the somewhat murky water she saw a small fish. She smiled, at least some life seemed to try and flourish here. She found a perfect spot to sit beneath a tree and stare out at the pond. Setting her bag down, she leaned against the tree. Her red eyes staring off into the horizon. Wrapping her arms around her legs, she rested her head on her knees.
She found herself alone. She tended to isolate herself, partly because since she had come here she wasn't the best at making friends. Too afraid to approach them probably. So she would spend afternoons like this by herself, staring off into some horizon or alone in her small apartment. Her mind wandering. Like, a shadow was cast upon her and she couldn't see the light. Couldn't make friends because she was in the darkness. However, would someone unveil the light? Show her true hearts potential? Only time could tell.
