Chapter Twenty

"Pyro Tendencies, Petitions, and Pyro Partners"


Flamez26: Megan!

MKart10: Yes, Lacey?

Flamez26: I need to burn something.

MKart10: Why the sudden need for pyro tendencies?

Flamez26: I got another gift from Aunt Frieda this weekend.

MKart10: And it needs to be burned because…

Flamez26: It's hideous and a threat to my reputation.

MKart10: What reputation?

Flamez26: My reputation as a bad ass.

MKart10: Haha.

Flamez26: Hey! This is very embarrassing.

MKart10: Would this gift from your Auntie happen to be green, knitted, and have little bells?

Flamez26: How do you know?

MKart10::grin::

Flamez26: Traitor!

MKart10::chuckle::

Flamez26: I demand you say how you know.

MKart10: Remember when I came into your room last night?

Flamez26: Yes.

MKart10: And when I came in you hurried to stuff something under your bed?

Flamez26: Um…I suppose.

MKart10: You weren't quick enough.

Flamez26: What do you mean I wasn't quick enough?

MKart10: Exactly what I said.

Flamez26: Megan!

MKart10: Oh, look at the time.

Flamez26: Megan Wittmeyer!

MKart10: Breakfast has begun.

Flamez26: Don't you dare.

MKart10: I must leave, darling.

Flamez26: I know where you sleep.

MKart10: Ta ta.

Flamez26: Nooooooooooooooo!

MKart10 has signed off.

Zack,

Good morning my video game loving boyfriend. Are you in charge of creating the petition?

Love,

Tanna

P.S. Have you seen my black nail polish?


To: Megan Wittmeyer

Uh oh. Should I have bought that Kevlar full-body suit I saw on Ebay last night?

Love you more.

I think a full body Kevlar body suit would be handy at all times…considering who we're friends with. Did you happen to see any Mario Kart t-shirts on Ebay?

Love you more…I'll prove it!

Why do you want to burn it? I don't know where they are. They're probably somewhere private…::wink wink::

I don't want to burn it…I HAVE GOT to burn it. It's hideous. Now, will you burn it with me? It can be a bonding experience. And I have no doubt that they are somewhere private…hehe. Oh wait…there they are.

-Lacey


To: Megan Wittmeyer

From: Ian Worski

No, I didn't see any Mario Kart t-shirts.

No, I love you more (I'll prove I love you more…meet me in the abandoned classroom on the third floor after dinner…).

That might be a possibility…but there's always the risk of getting caught…and setting off the smoke detectors.

Tanna,

No, sorry, I haven't seen it. Where did you see it last? And when have Lacey and Connor NOT acted weird together? Personally, I'd be more weirded out if they actually acted normal.

Introduction to Chemistry

Chemical Solutions

-Solution – a homogeneous mixture (and homogeneous means…)

-Solute – minor components of a solution

-Solvent – major component of a solution

What does homogeneous mean? – Lacey

I dunno. – Megan

It means all alike. – Connor

That was random. – Megan

How'd you know that? – Lacey

::shrugs:: Just random knowledge. – Connor

You're weird. – Megan

I know. – Connor

That's why I like him. – Lacey

Cause I'm weird? – Connor

Yep! You're your own person. – Lacey

Hey, aren't we supposed to get our tests back today? – Megan

I don't wanna get mine back. – Connor

I'll take yours then. – Lacey

And do what with it? – Connor

Eat it. – Lacey

Ew. – Megan

Oh come on, Megan. – Lacey

Ew. – Megan

Are you telling me that you've never eaten paper before? – Lacey

I used to eat napkins when I was little. – Connor

::stares at Connor:: That explains a lot. – Megan

I used to eat dirt. – Lacey

No you didn't. – Connor

That's gross. – Megan

My mom has pictures of me when I was three with a mouth full of dirt. – Lacey

Really? – Connor

Yep. – Lacey

Awesome! – Connor

OH OH OH! – Megan

What? – Lacey

Did Mr. Jefferson just say we get to do labs in this unit? – Megan

No way! – Connor

Oh, this'll be so cool! – Lacey

::claps hands excitedly:: I like playing with chemicals. – Connor

And as I've said before…that explains a lot. – Megan

4:09 pm – Connor keeps watch just incase Mr. Smith decides to walk by.

4:11 pm – The door is opened and Lacey and Connor enter.

(Did you bring a flashlight? – Connor)

(No, didn't you? – Lacey)

(No. – Connor)

4:12 pm – Lacey smacks Connor in the arm.

(Gently of course. – Lacey)

4:13 pm – Connor has the audacity to look shocked and stunned.

4:14 pm – Lacey crosses her arms and stares at Connor with one eyebrow raised.

(Fine, fine, I'll be right back. – Connor)

4:15 pm – Connor dashes off.

4:20 pm – Connor returns with a flashlight.

4:21 pm – Lacey and Connor enter the locker room.

4:25 pm – Lacey and Connor enter the pool room.

(What in the name of everything ugly is that? – Connor)

(This::holds up fugly item:: - Lacey)

(Yes. – Connor)

(It's what I need to burn. – Lacey)

(Now I see why. – Connor)

4:28 pm – Lacey places a pair of dark green, knitted booties on the concrete ground. Tiny bells sewn to the toes jingle as they hit the ground.

(What's that smell? – Connor)

(It's the booties. – Lacey)

(The booties? – Connor)

(My aunt burns incense constantly at her house. Anything I get from her reeks of hippies. – Lacey)

4:30 pm – Lacey strikes a match and she grins manically.

(Do it! – Connor)

4:30 pm – Dropping the match, Lacey and Connor watch as the booties catch fire.

4:31 pm – The flames dance and crackle.

(Isn't it beautiful? – Lacey)

(What? – Connor)

(The flames. They're so pretty. – Lacey)

(::laughs and shakes his head:: - Connor)

4:38 pm – The flames begin to die down.

4:40 pm – The fire goes out.

(Oh poo. It's done. – Lacey)

(Strangely, that was kind of fun. – Connor)

(::grins:: See, burning things is fun. – Lacey)

4:43 pm – Lacey and Connor retreat.

Top Secret Diary of Lacey Rodriguez

7:15 pm

The hideous booties are officially gone! And I think I just found a pyro-partner. ::big, manical grin:: We got our Chemistry tests back. I got a C…ok a C-, but a 70 is still a C…no matter how close to a D it is. This next unit on chemical solutions looks interesting. Haha. Imagine, me saying something in school is going to be interesting. But really…we're going to get to do experiments and labs. How can that NOT be interesting. Maybe we'll get to use a Bunsen burner!

P.S. I wonder where Megan is. I saw her and Ian slink off a little while ago.

To Do List for 2/5/07

-Celebrate destruction of Aunt Frieda's gift

-Find Connor and play Mario Kart with him

-No, beat Connor at Mario Kart


Author's Note – Yes, I know, I know. I didn't update last week. Actually, I didn't update any of my novels last week. I took a short vacation from writing to clear the center of my brain devoted to writing. So, now the cobwebs are cleared and everything is fresh and clean. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this chapter and as always I enjoyed writing…I outright laughed out loud several times while writing this. So, now that I've updated and you've read it…now review it. Oh…don't know what to review about? Need a review topic? No worries, here's one:

Did you see the movie, 300, yet? If so, what did you think? I saw it, and honestly, it was the best action/gore movie I've ever seen. It had a plot so well thought out, and characters so strong that it made me jealous.
