Story Title: Shark Bait
Clearly Mr. Andrews wouldn't be teaching third period today.
I casually let my hand drift down into the open zipper of my knapsack. He probably wasn't coming this way, but you really didn't want to take that kind of chance.
A terrible thump jerked me painfully back to the classroom. Tom Gladwell had just put his books down next to me.
"Woah. Kinda jumpy today, huh?"
I gave him my most winning smile, and tried to look back at the window. "Hmm? Yeah, sure."
Tom wasn't deterred. "So, want to go out after school for a milkshake? I've got a truck."
I missed these words. Mr. Andrews was nowhere in sight. Then there was a powerful blast of some kind, like a gun. The class hushed, looking back and forth to one another. Then the intercom came on.
"Will Amy Reinstone and Tom Lasseter please report to the principels office at once"
Tom knocked on my shoulder, "Hey, Amy come on, let´s see what kind of trouble we can get into" He smiled at me and I felt so afraid. I slowly stood up and started walking towards the door, Tom had already left the classroom and I could hear him whistle some silly and annoying tune out in the hall.
As I passed Jills desk I stopped and darted back to get my purse with me. I would not leave this behind me now that I may need it more than ever.
