Chapter 2 - Just Getting Started
Chap. 2

Tara: Hey, guys. Good to see ya.
Erin: Hey, Tara.
Maria: Okay, okay. Just make sure you pick them up from soccer practice.
Tara: Ray?
Maria: No, Brad Pitt.
Tara: You want him to pick up your brothers?
Maria: Yeah. I’m glad they’re at another school. I would go berserk if they went here.
Tara: I can see that. (pats her on the shoulder)
Tuesday: Hey, you haven’t noticed something about her?
Tara: Who? (sees Tika) Tika?
Tuesday: Yeah, she’s so goth…
Tika: Goth?
Tuesday: Hey, I’m just say…wait a minute, how did you know I said that?
Tika: Poor eyesight. It clears up every once in a while.
Tuesday: Seems pretty fine to me.
Tika: Shut it.
Tuesday: (groans)…….
Erin: Aw, look. The start of a beautiful friendship.
Tika: Friendship, my foot!
Tuesday: More like my heel!
Tika: *starts to hiss*
Matthew: Calm down, Tika.
Tika: *mouth covered*……………………… (crosses arms)
Tara: Hey, guys.
Matthew: Yo.
Blaine: ‘Sup.
Maria: (to Matthew) You know, you look a lot cuter up close.
Matthew: Uh, yeah. YAAAAAH!!!!
(He looks at his hand. In the middle is a small but distinguished line of cuts. He glares at Tika.)
Tika: I couldn’t breathe! What else am I supposed to do?
Matthew: Don’t bite me! You know how s……tough your teeth are!
Tuesday: Is that even a word?
Matthew: Honest mistake. You know what I mean.
Blaine: Hate to interrupt, but dude, you need to bandage your hand and we haven’t been introduced.
Tara: Oh, yeah. Guys…
Maria: Maria.
Tuesday: Tuesday.
Erin: Erin.
Kira: Kira.
Sarah: Sarah.
Blaine: Blaine.
Tika: Tika.
Matthew (wrapping hand) Matthew.
(An eerie silence goes between them.)
Tika: Okay, back to the statement about me being goth. What the heck did you mean by that?
Maria: I never said you were.
Tika: I can repeat your exact words.
Tara: Guys, guys. Let’s make peace, not war.
(Tika crossed her arms. Maria simply shrugged it off.)
Maria: Sorry I offended you. It was a common mistake.
Tika: I can tell. You telling the truth?
Maria: Yeah. Wait, what did I say?
Tika: I was…oh, that was stupid over here.
Tuesday: Shut up!
Tika: Well, you did.
Tuesday: Well, you are.
Tika: You say one more thing about me…
Tara: Guys!
Tika: Fine. Fine. I’ll defeat him later.
Tuesday: Try me. Meh.
Tika: (completely on edge)………
(Blaine picks up Tika and transports her to class. Tara glares at Tuesday before walking off.)
Matthew: Ugh, this weighs a ton.
Blaine: Really?
Matthew: Dude, shut up before you blow it.
Blaine: I know. I know.
(The boys are helping the janitor in carrying weights to the gym. You understand why Matt made that remark.)
Matthew: Hey, let’s make a run for it.
Blaine: How is that?
Matthew: Simple. I’ll warn you.
(He gives the bags to Blaine and they sprint towards the gymnasium. On the way, Tuesday returning from a club meeting, spots them.)
Tuesday: What the?
(He follows their trail, catching a glimpse of the pair entering the gym. Once he opens the doors, he sees them carrying the bag as a team.)
Matthew: Oh, hey, Tues.
Tuesday: What? How? Huh? I thought…
Blaine: What?
Tuesday: Never mind.
(He stands there, puzzled as they leave the area.)
Blaine: That was close.
Matthew: (hands behind head) Yeah, I know.
(Tuesday, after watching them leave, picks up one of the bags. He notices a description that reads: Xenas Weights. Capacity: 50 lbs.)
Tuesday: [50 lbs.?!] Is he nuts? He…wait a minute…he carried them in one hand. All three of them…] (looks at door)

Tika: That’s why you don’t risk it!
Blaine: Hey, we got away with it. It doesn’t matter.
Tika: But you could’ve got caught! I don’t wanna imagine what that might have caused. W3 c0u1d l-l4v3 b33l\l 3xp3113d…
Matthew: Could you stop speaking l33t?
Tika: Why do think I said it like that?
Blake: Don't look at me. I'm still trying to understand the language.
Matthew: *sighs*
Tuesday: Like I was saying, I looked at the bag and (looks around) *whispering* It read 50 lbs.
Tara: (skeptical) 50 lbs?
Maria: And he supposedly carried it all in one hand?
Tuesday: Yeah, was totally strange.
Erin: But how do you know if it was 50?
Tuesday: The bags were new!
Maria: How do you know if they were new?
Tuesday: Forget it. It's obvious you don't believe me.
Kira: (reading manga) Probably do.
Tuesday: Shut it, Kira.
(She slaps Tuesday in the face.)
Kira: I'm not in a good mood today.
Tuesday: (holding face in pain)........
Tika: Hey, guys.
Tara: Oh, hey Tika. Didn't know you were in here.
Tika: Of course I am.
Tara: Uh, Tik?
Tika: Yeah?
Tara: If you hate Tuesday, why are you sitting here?
Tika: Oh my God! I didn't even know!
Sarah: And there's another thing. That's the only seat left.
Tika: Now you tell me. (slumps down)
Tuesday: (asleep) *snore*
Tika: Thank goodness he's asleep.
Tara: He is?
Tika: It's obvious. Look. (lifts up hood)
Tuesday: *wakes up* Hey, who...what?! You again?! What the heck is she doing in here?!
Tika: I have this class.
Tuesday: Well, then, just get your schedule changed or something. Sheesh.
Tika: I'm getting another class on the account of some weirdo.
Tuesday: Weirdo?! At least I don't have pink hair!
Tika: Then what do you call light blue?
Tuesday: Gr...
Tara: *giggle*
Tuesday: Hey, you're supposed to be on my side!
Dr. Webb: Class, class. Settle down. (pauses) Now, thanks to what happened yesterday, I think you are all ready for a pop quiz.
Class: *groans*
(The papers are passed out. About 10 minutes later...)
Girl: Ow! Who threw this paper ball at me?!
Tuesday: *sweatdrop*.......
Tika: [Heh, heh, heh] *smiles mischievously*
Tuesday: (glares at Tika) [Darn it. How did she know?]
(Tika's ears twitched.)
Tika: Tara, I think you have a follower.
Tara: Huh? Oh, hi Erin.
Erin: Darn. I got caught.
Tara: I'm very sure you don't want to experience what happened at the mall, do you?
Erin: Could you stop talking about that?!
Tika: ?
Tara: Don't worry about it.
Tika: Hmph.
Tara: Hey, how did you know Erin was coming?
Tika: Instinct. I've always heard things a little better than most. :)
Tara: Oh, okay.
(Tika watches them leave and sighs.)
Tika: What the...?
(She sees Tuesday sataring her in the face.)
Tuesday: Okay, how did you know?
Tika: Huh?
