Why I am Locked Up in a Looney Bin
Chapter 1: Tell Me I'm Dreaming, Please?
Howdy! The author of Alana rides again! My name is sokkalover (of course that's not my real name; my name is Kelsey) and I am here to shed a little light on why Avatar is in the TV and not your classroom. This humor thing is new for me, so cut me a little slack, and I'll do my best! Don't forget, REVIEW!
Disclaimer- I don't own Avatar, but if I did, I would be, like, the happiest person in the universe!
It started out as another utterly boring and useless day at the torture chamber, a.k.a. school. We were having an Algebra test, and I was not completely concentrating. I was thinking of the world's greatest TV show, and how it would be so awesome if the characters were actually real. Poor me.
"Ten minutes left!" my math teacher, Mr. Rockne said his voice cutting into my completely math-related thoughts.
Crap, I thought, and began to hastily scribble down answers. I actually might have been able to finish the test and get a decent grade if there hadn't been a teeny little distraction.
"Avatar!" someone yelled, and the next second the window shattered and I was sprayed with glass. I stuck a sliced finger in my mouth and surveyed the scene playing out before me. A bald kid with an arrow on his head landed on the ground in front of my desk and swung a staff he was carrying at someone that was crawling through the window. A gust of wind shot out of it and knocked the person off his feet. That particular person had the boot-oogliest scar you had ever seen.
Several of the people in my class had collapsed, and terrified looking classmates were trying to revive them. Other people were pressed up against the back wall, their eyes as big as dinner plates. My avatar-loving friend Colleen and I, however, were sitting cool and collected at our desks, looking politely interested at what was going on. Not. We were hopping up and down, hugging each other and yelling incoherently.
Next thing my eyebrows were, for all I knew, burned off, and Colleen coughed out a puff of smoke like they do in the cartoons.
"Would you two just SHUT UP?" Zuko roared, for it was indeed Zuko. "I'm trying to catch the Avatar here!"
"Hey! Watch the attitude, buster!" I said, and I stood up on my toes and glared up at him, 'cuz I'm kinda short.
Zuko's face twisted into confusion. "How do you know my name?"
I was thinking about what to do next when the guy of my dreams (lol) climbed through the broken window.
"Aang, are you ok?" Sokka asked, taking in the classroom and my classmates.
"Lovely," Aang snorted, and whacked Zuko over the head with his staff.
"Zuko!" Colleen squealed, and she rushed forward.
I had to stuff my fist in my mouth to keep from yelling for joy and hugging Sokka. He turned and looked at me.
"What in the world are you doing?"
I blushed a deep crimson. "Uh, I uh, cut my hand on the glass," I stuttered, pulling my hand away from my big, fat yap. Should I tell him my name? Oh, shoot, if I say I'm sokkalover, he will think I'm weird for all eternity. "Hi, I'm Kelsey."
"I'm Sokka, that's Aang, and the dude with the scar is-"
"Zuko, I know. And I know you're Sokka, and that's the Avatar and that Zuko is trying to catch him and that you have a sister named Katara who's a waterbender." I said this all very fast, and I had the faintest impression that I was freaking Sokka out.
"You're freaking me out," he said, staring at me like I had grown another head. "How do you know all this?"
"Helloooo, it's called cable," I said, shaking my head and grinning. "Ok, I know this is a dream, but I don't want to wake up anytime soon."
"Pardon me," Mr. Rockne broke in. "But we are having a math test and you are being very disruptive. I am going to have to take away honor points. What is your name again?" He began to fill out a little pink slip.
"Uh, my name is Sokka. Kelsey, what are honor points?" Poor Sokka. He looked incredibly confused, probably about the same as I looked. This was too real to be a dream. Great. Now I'm going crazy!
"It's our disciplinary system. If you do something wrong, you get honor points taken away. If you don't lose any, you get an Honor Card, and you can use it to get out of class early or have pizza for lunch."
"What's pizza?" Aang asked, walking over. "And where did Katara get off to?"
"She said that she was getting Appa out of the tree, and you'll have to ask Kelsey what pizza is because I have absolutely no idea," Sokka said, jerking his thumb out the shattered window.
I turned around and turned very pale, because the window was taken up by a gigantic furry face. "Aang, you have to get Appa out of here! My classmates are going into conniption fits!" Several more people had passed out on the desks, and all the conscious people were inching towards the door. Some had climbed into cabinets and were now sitting there, shivering.
One of the bolder boys was still sitting in his desk, which happened to be the closest to the door. "What the hell is that thing?" he shouted.
"Hey! No cursing in school!" Mr. Rockne said from under his desk. "Three honor points!" But I seriously doubted that anyone cared about honor points anymore. They were more concerned about getting out of math class with their lives.
"Oh my gawd!" a bratty girl named Sidney yelled. "We're all going to, like, die!"
Something rolled across the floor and hit my foot. It was a peach with a bite out of it. "Hey Sidney, catch!" I called, and she caught the peach and stared at it.
A bundle of ears and fur shot through the window and launched itself on Sidney. "EEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKK!" she screamed, and pulled at the thing that was smothering her. Momo landed on the floor looking extremely disgruntled and grabbed his peach, which Sidney had dropped.
"Chirr, graah, chirr, hissss!" Momo said. (Translation: 3#! $ &$!)
Katara climbed through the window and stared at everyone. "Where are we?" she asked.
"The United States of America," I said importantly, putting my right hand over my heart.
Everyone jumped when the bell rang, and everyone except for me and Colleen tore out of the room.
Zuko began to stir, and Colleen jumped up and ran over to me. "What are we going to do with them?" she whispered in my ear.
"Help them find their way back to Avatar land, and until then, we have to lay low. Today's the first day of Spring Break, so school won't be a problem. I guess they'll have to stay at our places…"
"Ooh, can Zuko stay at my house?" Colleen squealed, clasping her hands together.
"Only as long as you're good," I hissed.
"I'm always good!"
"Sokka, Aang, Katara, follow me. Momo, stay with Appa, ok? Don't move!" I said, picking up my books and walking towards the door. "Colleen, put some cardboard over the hole in the window and get Zuko out of here."
At my locker, I got my books, and pulled out the stuff I had brought to school that day.
"Aang, this is a baseball cap. Get used to wearing them. Katara, I want the hair down, stat. Sokka, you too. If anyone recognizes you, we are in deep doo-doo," I said, tossing the hat to Aang and glaring significantly at Sokka and Katara. "You might want to borrow a sweatshirt too, Aang."
"What does this symbol mean?" Aang asked, taking the cap and looking at it.
"That is the Boston Red Sox insignia. They are the best baseball team ever!" I answered offhandedly. I picked up a sweatshirt. "Here, pull this over your head like a shirt. It can go over what you are already wearing."
"You are so weird," Sokka said.
"On my planet, this is considered normal behavior. Now take your ponytail out!"
Katara was unbraiding her hair. "Why do we have to do this? I don't even know your name!"
"I am Kelsey, queen of the universe and beyond. If you don't take my orders without question, I will have you beheaded!"
"Seriously?" Aang said, clutching his throat and going very pale.
"No. I am just a normal teenager and I have no power whatsoever. Although if you don't get yourselves looking like, um, not yourselves, you will be swarmed with fangirls. Aang, you already know that's not a good thing. Now let's go!"
"Where are we going?" Katara asked, tossing her loose hair over her shoulder.
"To my house, duh!"
