Thank you to everyone who reviewed and enjoyed my story. Here's a little treat for ya before I leave on my trip. There isn't any R/R gushy moments in this chapter, but wait a little longer, won't ya? 'Till we meet again.
Ten years have passed and Tim and Raven were the best of friends, along with Victor and Garfield, since that fateful day they met. During that time span, they learned about one another's past(like how Raven's father left her and her mother when she was only a few weeks old), their quirks(like how Tim could never keep eye contact with a person, other than Raven, for fear of them sucking up his soul), and to never get on Raven's bad side, which Garfield had to learn the hard way.
Presently, it was the beginning of a new year at Jump City Catholic Highschool, and for the four teenagers, Victor Stone, Garfield Logan, Timothy Wayne, and Raven Roth, it was the start of Grade Ten.
"TIM!! Wake up already! Your breakfast is getting cold!" bellowed his father, Bruce Wayne, the Chief of the Jump City Police Station. Satisfied after hearing the sound of a long groan and scuttling feet, he went into the kitchen and got some cherry-filled donuts to fill up his stomach.
Sighing, Bruce put down his beautiful, uneaten doughnut and walked over to the front door, turned the doorknob, and opened it to reveal the visitor. "Raven! Did you have a good summer dear?" he asked while stepping aside to let the teen in.
Before she could even respond or set one foot into the household, Tim, dressed in the school uniform, which consisted of black dress pants and a white, button-up dress shirt with the JC(Jump City) logo, took hold of her arm, and dragged her out of the Wayne residence while saying, "Bye Dad! No time for breakfast, late for school!"
Shaking his head, Bruce muttered, "Kids these days. It's always rush-rush." And he went back into the kitchen to devour his cherry-filled meal.
"Tim! Slow down! School doesn't start for another 25 minutes." snapped Raven, retrieving her pale hand from his death grip. "Why did you want to go to school early, anyways?"
After walking in silence for a few seconds, he responded, "You know it's always crowded on the first day. Everyone's greeting one another, and they always block the front desk when we get our schedules."
"Is that all?" she asked, and he nodded. "Hmm, Vic ,Gar, and I thought you wanted to be the first guy this year to carry Kory Anders books..."
Stopping, Tim looked over to his friend in false shock, "Whhaaat? Why would you think that? I don't l-like her or anything. So what if she's extremely pretty, and smells like vanilla, and is really nice, and wonderful...."
Rolling her eyes, Raven grabbed her love struck friend and pulled him along through the doors of Jump City Catholic Highschool. Upon entering the large building full of hormones and cheap cologne, Raven was greeted by her friend's Victor and Garfield.
"Hey dark girl! We got your's and Tim's schedules," said the tall, muscular, dark-skinned teenager, Victor, as he passed them their schedules. Seeing Tim looking a bit odd, he asked, "What's wrong with him?"
Raven nodded her head towards the 'popular' side of the foyer. Victor and Garfield turned their heads to look in the direction that she was pointing, or in this case, nodding to, and when they saw the smiling redhead, they understood what was going on. Looking back at the now drooling Tim, they decided to put him out of his misery, or happiness, whatever. So they slapped him.
"Gaahhh! What the hell, man?" cried out Tim, who was now holding his already bruising cheek. "Why the face? Why not the shoulder or something?" He glared at his long-time friends.
"Uhh, we didn't really think about it..." said Garfield with a sheepish grin and a hand rubbing the back of his head.
Containing her laughter, Raven said, "No kidding." Looking down at her new schedule she saw that she had Math first period, Science second, Art third, then 'C' lunch, and she finishes off with English. 'This is going to be a fun semester' her thoughts dripped with sarcasm. Seeing that her friends were also looking at their schedules she asked if any of them had the same lunch as her. Thankfully they all did. After more discussion on their schedules, she found out that she had Art with Tim, English with Vic, and she had no classes with Garfield. 'There is be a God' she thought.
At the sound of the bell, they went their different ways, and promised one another to meet up during lunch time.
If you got confused with the lunch schedule then don't worry! I'm here to guide you through it. Alright, there are 3 lunches, 'A', 'B', and 'C' lunch. 'A' lunch starts before period three. 'B' lunch starts in the middle of period three, and it signifies the end of 'A' lunch. And 'C' lunch begins at the end of period three.
If you're still confused, then, I don't know what to do with you. I'm just copying the schedule from my own highschool.
Once again, constructive criticism is welcomed. And don't expect another quick update like this. G'day.
