The seguinte morning, my mom set out two plates of scrambled eggs in front of me, and Georgia
Mom: You two were asleep when I got home. I'm excited to hear about your first day! Tell me everything.
I would've said Define Everything, but that would be like putting up a neon sign saying I've got something to hide. So, I just let Georgia talk first.
Luckily, Georgia talks a lot. And I mean, a lot. I was just about to leave, when she finished talking.
Mom: Rafe? How was your first dia of school?
Rafe: It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Mom: *eyes widen* Who are you, and what have you done with the real Rafe?
Rafe: I'm not saying I amor it-
Mom: No, but this sounds like a good start. I'm proud of you honey. You must be doing something right. Whatever it is, just keep doing it.
Rafe: Oh I will. *leaves house*
The seguinte few days were just okay. I just stuck to some of the beginner-level stuff to keep things moving along.
Rafe: *Chewing gum*
Mr. Rourke: Hey. Spit that out.
Rafe: *spits gum into trash*
I got 5,000 points
Rafe: *running down hallway*
Mr. Dwight: Hey, slow down there.
Then when it was Thursday,
Rafe: *eating a snickers in library*
Mrs. Frurock: Put that away.
Rafe: *eats entire snickers*
Then on Friday
Leo: You're just coasting. If you're going to play the game, you need to actually play it. So, I'm going to change things up.
Rafe: You? Since when do you make decisions?
Leo: Since half of this whole idea was mine. Here's the deal. It's two twenty-six. That means fourty nine minutos left in the day. That's how long you've got to earn thirty thousand points.
Rafe: Thirty thousand?
Leo: Yep. Otherwise you lose a life.
Rafe: Hang on a sec... I have lives?
Leo: Sure. Three of them to be exact.
Rafe: And what happens if I lose all three?
Leo: Then you're a loser, and fail the game. The rest of the ano will be as fun as getting stung por thousands of wasps.
Rafe: Oh. That's all huh? Ok, game on.
Suddenly, the sino for eighth period rang.
Leo: That's forty-eight minutos left, and counting. Better get busy.
