A scream, followed by roaring laughter draws their attention back to the school and the students meandering toward it. A tall girl with red streaks in her long brown hair is still laughing, head thrown back, as a shorter girl with hair so dark it’s nearly black, glares back at her. The laughing girl ignores the glare directed at her and loops their arms together. Noticing Belle’s gaze, the tall girl winks at her before walking off toward the school.
“Crazy bunch, teenagers are,” Moe mutters.
In which Belle is the new student, Regina and Emma are bickering idiots, and Ruby smiles at Belle just a tad too much for it to be simply friendly.
