A/N: Thank you, Ramiro, for the awesome idea for this chapter. Here is your cookie.
Professor Calamitous walked on to the set as quietly as he could. Unfortunately, it wasn't quiet enough.
"Hey, Calamitous!" Sheen called.
Calamitous froze in fear.
"Calamitous! Come here."
Calamitous turned slowly and stiffly and faced Sheen. He was scared to find out what Sheen wanted. Last time it put him in the path of eighteen hungry lions. Calamitous shuddered at the memory.
"I need a favor. Will you feed my pet snake?"
"You… you have a snake?" Calamitous gulped.
"Yeah, it's the most poisonous kind there is… I made Meldar get him for me."
It was a known fact that Calamitous hated snakes. "Wha… what do you want me to feed it?"
"These," Sheen said handing Calamitous a box full of squirming mice. It was also a known fact that Calamitous hated mice.
Calamitous knew what would happen if he didn't do this. "Su… sure," he managed to spit out.
"Hey, Dad!" Beautiful Gorgeous called out. However, upon spotting Sheen, she turned and ran out of the studio.
"Wait, Beautiful!" Sheen cried chasing after her.
Calamitous silently wished his daughter luck and went to meet his doom.
That day, they began shooting a new episode.
"Ok class," Miss Fowl cried. "Today we will study photo-SYN-thesis!"
The whole class, with the exception of three students groaned.
"Can anyone explain photosynthesis?"
Three hands shot up.
"Photosynthesis is the process in green plants and certain other organisms by which carbohydrates are synthesized from carbon dioxide and water using light as an energy source. Most forms of photosynthesis release oxygen as a byproduct."
"Ve-ery good, Jimmy," Miss Fowl cawed. "Can anyone ELAB-orate?"
Again, three hands shot up.
"The process creates glucomorph which (A/N: according to my science teacher) is the building block of life. The organisms that create it are called producers and are at the bottom of the food chain. They are consumed by herbivores and omnivores, which are consumed by omnivores or carnivores. And most importantly, they use the sun, which is the most reliable source of energy on Earth."
"EEExcellent!" Miss Fowl screeched.
Cindy leaned over to Jimmy and said, "Looks like there's someone else here to give you a run for your money."
"Aw… that was just a lucky guess!" Jimmy replied.
"Yeah, real lucky considering all the big words he used," Libby added.
"Neutron, you're just mad because he out shined you," Cindy said as she glanced over at Ramiro.
"Hey, Jimmy. That kid sounded really smart," Sheen said.
"Yeah, he almost sounded as smart as you," Carl added.
"He sounded smarter than you!" Sheen corrected Carl.
Jimmy growled and the bell rang. The whole class, with the exception of Ramiro and Jimmy piled out. Jimmy glared at Ramiro as he came over.
"Hey, I'm kind of new here, and I was wondering if you wanted to hang out sometime."
"Uhh… maybe," Jimmy replied.
"Ok," Ramiro said sounding dejected.
"I was just heading over to the Candy Bar… you want to come?" Jimmy asked, hating to hurt people… unless they were villains… or Cindy.
"Yeah," Ramiro replied.
He followed Jimmy to the Candy Bar where he was immediately surrounded by their classmates.
"Wow, you sounded really smart," Sheen said.
"Yeah… much smarter than Neutron," Cindy added.
Ramiro noticed Jimmy standing outside of the group and pushed his way over to him. He and Jimmy ordered and sat down. Cindy, Libby, Nick, and Brittany sat down at their table, Cindy sitting right next to Ramiro. They were all really excited because they finally found someone that was smarter than Jimmy.
The group excitedly chattered as Jimmy stared down into his Purple Flurp. Ramiro made several attempts to include Jimmy in the conversation, but his attempts failed.
Afterward, Ramiro turned to Jimmy and said, "I'm really sorry about today… I didn't know… I really didn't."
"It's fine Jimmy said as he pushed past and walked home.
Sheen and Carl instantly surrounded him.
"Hey," Sheen said, "I'm having a birthday party tomorrow, and I was wondering if you wanted to come."
"But Sheen," Carl said. "It's not your birthday."
"Naw… I don't think I can make it," Ramiro said to hopefully prevent any further arguing. He walked away from the two boys and to his house.
"Hey!" Sheen cried, "If he doesn't come, then I don't get a present!"
"Um… sorry, sir," the newest director muttered.
He won't last through today Sheen thought and laughed inwardly.
Once again (authoress rolls eyes) , Sheen was right.
A/N: And now begins the search for a new director…
Whaddya think about Ramiro and Ramiro, whaddya think about your character?
I still could use some ideas… (hint hint).
Anyway, please review.
Pretty please with sugar on top and ice cream and cherries and a Sheen plushie and an Erik plushie and a Nadir plushie and…
