Chapter 1: Getting Started

"Class, you need your permission slips for the museum trip by tomorrow! Or you won't be able to go, and you will need to write a 5 page paper on one of the chemistry founding fathers!" Ms. Lischak said as the bell rang.

"Are you going to the museum for the weekend?" Luck asks me.

"Yeah. Could you imagine having to write a 5 page essay? Plus, now I have an excuse to get away from my mom for the weekend. How about you?"

"Oh, yeah, I'm going. But, I need to find a roommate. I'm not sure if I really want to stay in the same room as Friedman."

"Well, I think Rove's going. You could room with him. Girardi made me promise to room with her, so she didn't get stuck with Glynis." I say.

"Yeah, I'll go ask Adam if he has a roommate yet. Biology closet at 3?" He asks.

"Of course." I say, and give him a wink before turning to go to lunch.


"Hey Adam!" I hear the Geek yell.

"Hey, Luke." Rove says.

"Hey, I was wondering if you had a roommate for the hotel yet?"

"Uhh, not yet."

"Well, do you want to room with me? Since you know, Joan and Grace are rooming together."

"Unchallenged, dude." Rove says, and walks off with Joan, leaving Luke and I alone.

"I...I gotta go... I'll see you at 3." I say, and head off towards math.


"Geek, you're late!" I say, teasing him.

"No, you just got here super early." He says back.

"Just shut up and kiss me." I say, and pull him by the shirt.
