The school year finished, summer came and went, and now it was back to the old wake-up-at-7am-and-get-ready-for-school routine. Joe yawned and nearly fell face first into his cereal bowl. Anna bounded into the kitchen, took one look at Joe's milk covered face and burst out laughing.
"Shuddup." Joe mumbled grabbing a napkin. School had started nearly a week ago and he still wasn't used to waking up at 7:30 am.
When he looked up he was not really surprised to see a blue-eyed white cat sitting on the table. Joe smiled and gently rubbed the top of her head. She purred and moved so that he could caress her back.
"Hey Fina," Joe smiled. "Ready for school?"
Fina only responded with a purr. At first things seemed almost formal between them after they got back from Syrania. After all, she was more Fred's friend than his. But over the course of the summer Fina had been constantly over his house in her cat form. They didn't talk much, but they still enjoyed each others company.
Joe got up from the table and got his backpack together.
"So we going to school together?" Joe turned towards her, but like every morning she had disappeared.
After dropping Anna off at her school, Joe left for his. This year his first class was Mrs. Baxter's English class. As usual Sam was already there, probably long before anyone else.
"Ugh, do you sleep here?" Joe groaned as he sat next to him.
"Yeah," Sam said sarcastically. "Don't you see my bed in the corner?"
He turned to smile at Joe to show he was just kidding. Just then though something flew out of nowhere and hit Sam in the forehead.
"Oops," San-Li and Fina walked through the door. San-Li smirked and winked at Sam. "Sorry nerd."
Suddenly San-Li jumped and and gave a yelp. "What the heck!"
"Oops." Fred said coming up behind her. "Sorry evil ninja."
San-Li smirked at him and sat behind Sam without another word. Fina smiled briefly at Fred and then at Joe. Fred grinned in return and sat next to Joe. The last of the students filtered in and Joe couldn't help but hope he'd see... He shook his head. No. She if she hasn't come back back now, she wasn't going to come back.
"Okay class let's begin!" Mrs. Baxter rushed into the room and closed the door. "Now that we've gotten the preliminaries out of the way, let's get on to this quarter's topic. Greek Mythology!"
Only about half the class was paying attention. Fred looked like he was about to fall asleep again and Fina was doodling in her notebook. Sam looked like he was paying attention but San-Li just looked like she was staring off into space.
"Now, to make this more interesting I'm going to assign you a project."
There was a collective groan in the room until Mrs. Baxter held her hand up for quiet.
"Now, you'll each pick either a god, a goddess, or a hero to do research on. Find out their story, their origin, and anything else that you might find. I want a two page paper and some type of visual which you shall present to the class. Now, lets turn to chapter 3 where we see the beginning of Greek myth, the titans..."
"Ugh! I can't believe she's hitting us with a project on the first week of school!" Fred groaned.
They were all upstairs in Joe's room lounging around. They were supposed to be working on homework and stuff, but Sam and Fina were the only ones actually doing work.
"Its not that bad, Fred." Sam rolled his eyes and took out the assignment. "Just pick a hero or a god and do some research. Even you can do that."
Fred narrowed his eyes and pulled a rubber band out of his pocket. While Sam read the assignment out loud he stretched it between his fingers and let it fly.
" Find out their story, their origin, and –Ow!" Sam yelled as it hit him in the forehead. "What was that!"
"What was what?" Fred asked innocently, winking at San-Li who was trying hard not to laugh.
"That thing you just hit me with you moron!" Sam was getting angry fast. It was something about San-Li laughing at Fred's trick that bothered him the most.
Fina looked between Sam and Fred and tried to change the subject. "I think Jason would be a good match for you, Fred."
"Jason?" Fred turned to her. "Who's he?"
"Leader of the Argonauts, duh." San-Li rolled her eyes and sat up on Joe's bed. "He was also one of the greatest heroes in Greek Mythology."
"Really?" Fred asked and then took out a piece of paper and wrote it down. "Cool. We done yet?"
Joe saw that Sam was going to respond so he jumped in before anything could happen. "So Fina, which one are you going to do?"
"I don't know," Fina mused. "I was thinking maybe Artemis. She was the goddess and wilderness and animals, wasn't she?"
"Yeah," Sam adjusted his glasses like he always did when he was explaining something to someone. "She was also associated with the moon, childbirth, and plague. Some scholars also believe that the name and indeed the goddess herself was originally pre-Greek. And did you know-"
Another rubber band flew through the air and hit Sam in the head again.
"Ow!" Sam yelled at Fred. "Cut it out, you jerk!"
"Hey, it actually wasn't me!" Fred shrugged his shoulders, laughing. "Talk to her!"
San-Li smirked and winked at Sam. "Couldn't help myself. I always get bored when people go on and on..."
Sam glared at San-Li and looked for the rubber band. When he found it, he stretched it between his fingers and aimed straight at San-Li. As it shot through the air San-Li didn't bother to duck. She just smirked and shook her head at Sam as the rubber band sailed right over her head...and hit Joe's dresser.
"Oh, great." Joe mumbled as the green mist started to fill the room.
"B-B-but, I-" Sam managed to stammer before they warped who knows where. Again. And this time, it wasn't even Fred's fault.
