This is a fan fiction that I always tell my friends at sleep-overs. They tell me it's scary, but I don't think so. Oh, well anyway, the first 2 chapters aren't of any importance, but they're just something my tiny mind thought of.

Disclaimer: sure, I own it. Oh, and look, a pig flew by, and it's raining chocolate! Yum...

Boring, boring, boring. Mr. Simmons' class was more bored than they ever had been before. Even Mr. Simmons himself was bored! He was talking about something, but no one in the room could really hear him. Suddenly, he remembered something. "Class!! Big news!" he shouted, making everyone come out of their trances. "Each one of the classes is taking a trip! Not a field trip, but an actual TRIP! Everyone gets to bring their own stuff! Oh, and it's tomorrow."

The whole class dropped their jaws in unison. "What?! Why didn't you tell us yesterday, or the day before?!" Helga yelled, standing up. "We could have already have been packed by NOW!!"

Mr. Simmons twiddled his thumbs. "Yes, I understand that I should have, but yesterday I didn't remember. I just remembered now." he stood up, and grabbed two hats out of his desk. "Ok, now, there are 4 groups. The 1s, the 2s, the 3s, and the 4s. 1s and 2s are boys, and 3s and 4s are girls. Get it?"

"Got it!" the whole class answered in unison.

"Good. Now, the pink hat is the girls' hat and the blue is the boys'. Come up and pick numbers." Mr. Simmons sat back down, and watched as boys and girls came up, grabbed a piece of paper out of the correct hat and went back to their seat. Then, he noticed Helga grab two. "Um, Helga?"

She turned back around. "What?"

"You can only take one." he stated, making the sigh language of one.

Helga sighed, and leaned against the desk. "Yes, but that's just for me. I'm not going to be the only Pataki going on this little outing. My cousin, Krystle, was going to come and visit this weekend, and that's the reason why I was so mad when you told that to us just today. Now, if you'd excuse me, I have to go sit down." Helga turned back towards her seat, and stormed towards it.

When she got back, she turned to Phoebe. "So, what number did you get? I got 4s, and so did Krystle."

Phoebe looked down at her card, then back up at Helga. "It's the frustrating 3s. Helga, we have to be apart!" Phoebe had a sad expression on her face.

Helga sighed, and snapped her fingers. "Bummer. I hope miss perfect isn't in my group." she peaked out of the corner of eye to see Phoebe frowning at her. "Uh, sorry Pheebs, but the thought of her makes me want to break something. Whereas if she was with your group, she wouldn't wake up with a broken neck." Phoebe sighed, turned her head to the blackboard, and nodded her head.

"Yes, you're right Helga." she sighed, and began to study.

Meanwhile, Arnold and Gerald were discussing what group they were in. "I'm in the 2s, how about you Gerald?" asked Arnold, looking at his card.

Gerald looked down at his, then back up at Arnold with a smile on his face. "2s also. Man! We actually both picked 2s, what are the chances of that?"

Arnold raised one of his eyebrows. "Uh, Gerald? I'm sure there is a good chance of us picking the same one."

"Whatever man." Gerald looked back at Mr. Simmons, but didn't listen to him because he was thinking about the trip.

Helga and Phoebe stood in the airport, waiting for Krystle. Helga was getting tired of just standing there, so she decided to go into the gift shop. "You coming Pheebs?" she called over her shoulder to her best friend.

"Coming!" Phoebe called, and ran after her. Soon they arrived at the gift shop, and began to look around. "Look at this Helga! It's a board game for when you're on the road! And look! There's some playing cards!" Phoebe went looking around the games section.

Helga wasn't listening to Phoebe; she was looking in the lockets (a/n: some gift shops have lockets! I know that for a fact!). "Wow. A silver one with a gold outline. I wonder how much it costs." she looked around on it for a price, and found that it was about $5.00. She reached into her pocket, and pulled out her money. ", crimany! Only four dollars and 50 cents!"

She felt a tap on her shoulder, and turned around expecting to see Phoebe standing there, but instead a girl that was the same height as herself with long, long blonde hair up in two high pigtails, a white long sleeved shirt with a coral pink sleeveless shirt with hood and white stripes going down both sides over it, pants that were the same color as the sleeveless top with white stripes going down the sides also, a unibrow, white sneakers, and she looked almost exactly like Helga except with longer hair, and a different outfit. "Uh... I was going to offer you some money, but... uh. Well, you must be Helga. Hi." 'this girl must be Krystle,' Helga thought, staring at the girl in front of her.

"Yeah. You must be Krystle." Helga stated, raising half of her unibrow. Krystle smiled, and nodded her head. "By the way, my school is taking a trip, so we aren't going to be staying at my house."

Krystle's smile turned into a scowl, and she placed her hands on her hips. "And WHERE are we going?"

Helga sighed, and shrugged. "I have NO idea. My fruit cake of a teacher didn't tell us. Doi! He just told us about the trip today, and the trip is tomorrow!"

"Your teacher is obviously not like my teacher." Krystle said, rolling her eyes. She sighed, then smiled. "Oh well. Two trips, for the price of one! It couldn't be more perfect!" Krystle exclaimed. Helga already knew how her cousin was going to be with her class: Arnold's new crush. Yep.

"Oh please." Helga mumbled, slapping a hand over her eyes. Krystle stared at her with half of her eyebrow raised. Helga parted her fingers, and looked at Krystle.

"What? 'Oh please' what?" Krystle asked, placing her hands on her hips. 'This cousin of mine sure is weird so far.' Krystle thought, almost laughing, but instead smirking.

"Nothing. Come on, lets get back to the house so I can get packing!" Helga grabbed Krystle's hand, and ran out of the gift shop. Suddenly, she remembered something, and skidded to a stop, making Krystle run into her; which wasn't so good. They fell, Helga underneath of Krystle. Helga growled, and pushed Krystle off of her. "I forgot something. I'll be right back." she got up, and walked back into the gift shop. She looked around, and spotted Phoebe. She ran over to her, and tapped her on the shoulder. "Hey Pheebs, we're leaving."

Phoebe looked up, obviously shocked. "Helga! You frightened me!" she gasped. Then what Helga had said finally registered. "Oh! We're leaving! Can I buy these first, Helga?" she asked, holding up a deck of playing cards, and a board game.

"Yeah, sure, but don't take too long." Helga said, walking back out to Krystle.

Just before Helga had completely get out of ear shot, Phoebe declared, "Hurrying!"
