Here's more of my book!
“So, Ruby, how was your new school?” Mom asked.
Ruby thought for a moment while chewing her corn. “Well,” she answered,”My new math teacher Mr. Silvershine’s personality does not shine at all. He is, like, the strictest teacher in all of the world. He gave me a hundred problems just to see how much I know. I hate him!”
Mom and Dad exchanged worried looks. “Anyway,” Dad said, “How was your first day, Athena?”
I looked down, then looked back up. “I made a new friend. Her name is Grace, and she’s really nice. She showed me around.” I didn’t want to tell them about Goldway Gang today. Didn’t want to get them too worried.
There were a few silent moments while everybody finished up. Then Dad broke the silence. “All right, girls. Time for bed.”
I beat Ruby to the shower and got undressed. For once she didn’t argue about not getting enough warm water. Maybe the new school thing was that bad. After I had finished, while I was combing my hair in my room, Ruby came and plopped down in a beanbag chair.
“What’s the secret?” she asked.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Oh, come on. I can tell that something’s bugging you,” she said
“Ok then, Miss Secret. But I know you. This problem will get too big, and since Mom and Dad won’t get it the teenage girl way, you’ll come to me.” Ruby said that last part rather proudly.
“I can figure it out myself,” I answered.
“Ahh, so there is a problem.” Ruby smiled and left.“Grrr,” I said after her.
This was more of Chapter 2. Hope you enjoyed it!
Nothing interesting here today.
