A Zombie in Homeroom

I met my first real-life zombie.

Stacy introduced me to her old friend Aliya. Apparently, at the end of elementary school, Aliya's family moved to another state with little warning. To explain her sudden absence, one girl told everyone that Aliya had died in a car crash, a rumor that spread and was accepted as truth. No one would have ever been the wiser, except that a couple years later, Aliya's family moved back to town. Imagine everyone's surprise when Aliya, a known fatality to the school community, showed up for the first day of high school - back from the dead! Talk about a reputation.
