Round 6 - Spring 2037 - LBPS
Kip was trying to get the kids in the junior class prepared for uni, much to their dismay. Ricky Cormier has caught spring fever and isn't really thinking about college entrance exams......he's thinking about summer vacation!
Kayla is having trouble concentrating on her class. Her personal life is pretty chaotic these days and she really has no idea what to do about it. Jean Mahesh just wants a little feed back on the plate she's trying to mold. Ms. Knowles needs to get her head out of the clouds!
Kip is trying to listen to Ginger's concerns about her work, but his thoughts keep coming back to Caleb. When did his little boy grow up? He had actually gotten excited about the new baby he and Kimber were going to have. It was going to be weird not having Caleb around to watch the games with him.
But he was finally able to concentrate on what Ginger was saying. She was really excited about going to Brown Tech to study cosmetology. He could also sense that she was a bit sad that she wouldn't be joining the rest of her classmates at LBU. He felt sorry for the girl. It must have been tough living in a home full of adopted kids......
Meadow came into the art room and laid into Raphael. Apparently they had gone out the past weekend and Raphael refused to come over the next day and walk her dog.
"There are rules you need to follow if you want to hang out with me," Meadow said.
"Who do you think I am? Cormier?" Raphael said laughing.
"Ricky is twice the guy you are apparently!"
"Please! Being your lap dog doesn't make him better than me. It makes him stupider," Raphael said walking off.
At first Caleb thought Jean was pretty cool for a 9th grader. Now she was just annoying. He figured she had a crush on him, but Caleb was just not interested in her. He wasn't interested in any of the girls at LBPS. He figured he just had more mature tastes and couldn't wait to see all the girls at LBU!
Ginger was tried of seeing Ricky get used by Meadow.
"Look, I know you have a crush on her. We all know. But she doesn't like you, Ricky. She just uses you to do stuff for her. You can do better than Meadow Thayer!"
"What do you know? You like Caleb but you're too chicken to tell him about it. So who are you to give me advice?" Ricky asked.
"I don't like Caleb! Well, not like that anyway. We're just friends!"
"That's exactly what I mean. Denial. When you've straighten your own mess out, then maybe I'll listen to you," Ricky said walking off.
Ginger ran after him and caught him in a head lock and gave him a noogie.
"Don't forget who you're talking to, Cormier! I was simply trying to help. And I better never hear you mention what we just talked about to you know who. You got me?"
"Yea, yea I got you! Now let me go!" Ricky yelled.
Ginger released him and walked away. She didn't need anyone telling Caleb that she liked him. She knew he didn't feel the same way and she didn't want it to ruin their friendship.........
It seemed that Ricky did listen to what Ginger had said.......
"No Meadow. I'm tired of coming over to walk your dog or do your homework or help with your chores. You seem to like Raphael so why don't you get him to do it?" he asked.
"Ricky! You know it's not like that! There's no one I like more than you!"
"Save it, Meadow. I'm done," Ricky said walking off.
Meadow knew that Ginger had something to do with Ricky's newfound confidence. That was okay because Meadow knew that Ginger wouldn't be joining them at LBU. She would get her lap dog back.........Ricky couldn't resist her for long! Caleb was extremely proud of his friend. He was wondering when he was going to open his eyes!
Kayla skipped lunch and decided to paint in the art room. Adam Broaden had been calling and stopping by with his friend Casey for quite a while. She hadn't told Kenny because she knew he would freak. She had told Adam that it was over between them, but he didn't seem to hear her. Why would she risk losing everything she had with Kenny to be with someone who dumped her for no reason? It was a question she asked herself daily because her heart had never entirely let go.......and she had no idea what she was going to do about it.......
* I think Meadow, Ricky, and Caleb are going to be tons of fun to play at uni. Ricky had a lot of disagreements with Meadow this time which is unusual for him. Maybe he's finally growing a set where she's concerned lol
* I've been alluding to this triangle between Kayla, Adam, and Kenny for a few posts now. It will all be explained in her household update.
* Kip kept thinking about Caleb the whole time. I think he's going to miss him once he goes off to school. On the other hand, he'll be so busy with the new baby he might not even notice :).
*Caleb isn't interested in any of the girls at the high school. Maybe he'll find someone at uni......
