Arnold, his shoulder sore from Don’s attack, trudged back into classroom 2-08 for his last class of the day: Mr. Brandt’s special class.
“Welcome back, class,” said Mr. Brandt as the class seated themselves. The white-haired old man was standing behind his desk at the front of the classroom. On top of that desk laid a brown horse mask and a camera. “Now, class. One star for the first student who wears this horse mask and lets me take a picture of them.”
What the hell? The students looked at each other in surprise at this seemingly simple yet weird request. One student raised his hand to volunteer.
“Um, no, not you,” said Mr. Brandt. “I need a girl.”
After a few seconds, a girl volunteered. She put the horse mask on and Mr. Brand took a photo of her. “Thank you. You guys can use the rest of the class to do whatever you guys want.”
“Uh,” said Arnold. “Did that not seem really creepy?”
“Let’s not change subjects,” said Carl. “We’re talking about your cousin.”
“No seriously, what Mr. Brandt just did seemed really creepy.”
Carl leaned towards Arnold and whispered, “Well, you’re really creepy you fucking cousin-lover.”
Carl coughed, and leaned back into his seat. “So Arnold, you said you’re giving us a picture of your cousin. You have her on Facebook right?”
“Alright. Cough it up, man,” said Carl.
Arnold pulled out his phone and went to his cousin Stacy’s wall. He tapped on her profile picture, making it fill the entirety of the phone screen. It was one of those mirror selfies. In the picture, her entire tall slender, yet lean form could be seen. She had rich black hair that extended freely all the way to her waist. Like Arnold, she had one hair that was blonde colored. Carl took Arnold’s phone and placed it in the center of the table for their group to see.
“Whoa, she’s really cute,” said Steph. “Are you sure you’re related to her, Arnold?”
Haha, that fucking hurts you motherfucker.
“How old is she? She looks like she’s in college,” continued Steph.
“Er no, actually. She’s a freshman in high school, just like us,” said Arnold.
Steph’s eyes widened. “Seriously?”
“No wonder you like her,” said Carl. “She’s freaking hot.”
“Okay, that’s enough,” said Arnold, taking his phone and putting it back into his pocket. “Happy? Now stop bothering me about my cousin.”
“Alright, alright,” said Carl. “You’ve satisfied me, Arnold…For now, that is.”
