New Year Surprise Chapter 1

It was the start of yet another year at Roscoe High, and is was the first time that it had really hit that Radio Free Roscoe would not be there to help them through the year. It is also the first time that Robbie, Ray, and Lily would see each other as a group again. Ray was already talking to Lily when Robbie had arrived.

"Hey guys!" he said walking up to the two of them.

"Hey!" said Lily giving him a hug. "How was your summer with Kim?"

"Great!" he said. "What about you guys?"

"It was pretty plain." said Ray. They both looked at him. "I'm kidding, it was fun."

"The mall tour was so great." said Lily. "I heard you came to one, but didn't get to come to see me."

"Yeah, I had to go anyway, my parents were in a big rush." said Robbie. "It's lucky that I came at all."

"Well, it is a new year, and that means that we are Juniors, and get to pick on the lower classman this year." said Ray.

"Come on, Ray." said Lily." You didn't like it when you were picked on."

"No, but now it is my turn." he said.

"Lets just get to class before the bell rings." said Lily. "We don't want to be late on the first day."

They had their first class together, novels, so they decided to walk to class together so they could sit next to each other. They sat in the middle of the classroom while they waited for their teacher to arrive. As the bell rang Mr. Waller walked into the room. The class became silent as he walked up to the teachers desk.

"It seems our new Novels teacher has called in sick so it looks like your stuck with me." he said. The class gave a groan of annoyance, but was quickly quited when he looked at them. "You all should know that I don't enjoy substituting these classes any more than you like having me, but when our teachers call in sick at the last minute there is no other choice so you are just going to have to deal with it. Everyone take the books on the shelves and begin reading the first three chapters, and no complaints."

The students slowly got out of their desks to get the books. It seemed that this year was not going to be that much different than the previous.
