Today was the big field trip to the volcano. Ms.Beng and Mr.Charles were the teachers leading it and crazy Elda Underhill smelling of cheep cigars and musk driving the school bus (I’m surprised we didn’t go over a cliff in that junker much less get any where). The drive was boring and slightly nauseating, good thing I brought plenty of Tums to sell. As usual Mal was kissing up to Ms. Beng for her oh so precious gold stars and Kelvin was kissing up to Mr. Charles by playing along with his guitar to Mr. Charles lame ass singing, the whole way there. A few of my fellow Inmates and I tired to pass our time with a game of go fish. Lolly was with the bimbo committee being their annoying selves and Dustin mooning over Lolly as usual. (I should get friends with better taste). When will he realize his dad has a better chance of sobering up than him getting to date Lolly?
I also tried passing the time looking around at people though this weird Monocle type thing I found the other night. I tried it earlier on Tiewaz and Hootch. Tiewaz had a small blue glow about him, Hootch did not. When I looked at Mr. Delano He had a big Blue glow while Ms. Beng had an even bigger glow. I guess it shows Magical aura or something like that. But something felt like it was trying to drain my soul while I was looking between teachers, so I had to stop for a while. I can’t see out of the eye I used the monocle on for half an hour afterwords. Kinda weird.
Sara, one of Mal’s friends gave me some eye drops to see if it would help (it didn’t)But Mal was a dork and called her a nerd. Embarrassed her pretty bad, that was before he went to kiss up to Beng. Stupid guy, all mouth and no smarts for a self proclaimed genius.
Any ways so we finally get to the volcano and darn it there is no way to ditch the class. The tree line is away from the volcano. Stupid wide open spaces. Beng is going on an on about something. All I heard was bla bla bla. Kinda sounded like a teacher from a charlie brown cartoon (she always sounds like that). The volcano still stunk of sulfur and kept the area pretty warm for This time of the year. I must have nodded off, cuz next thing I know Beng is announcing 15 min break, Kelvin is glaring daggers at Mal,and Mal looks confused about why he’s getting the death glare. I wasn’t in the mood to deal with them or any one else. So I decide to go check out the crater. I must have been feeling over heated or something I tripped and feel on this rock that look like it use to be an obsidian lock. Then that Idiot Kelvin not watching where he was going tripped over me and opened a door in the ground. At first There was nothing but darkness then smoke started pouring out of the hole. Kelvin got a face full of smoke. Every one took off running for the bus and we drove home. I looked back at the smoke with the monocle and the smoke was the blue aura thing. So that looks like it was pure magic. It started heading towards town.
The trip back seemed to be shorter, but that could because Elda was driving faster or because Charles was too warn out to sing. As we drove into town Ami screamed and fainted, so instead of dropping us off at school we ended up being dropped off at the Saint Basil’s Hospital. Most had their parents pick them up. I was more in the mood to walk. My mood had not picked up after stopping for ice cream at the dinner. So While meandering around town throwing random rocks at windows and street lights I saw that Flint Cinema is getting ready to open back up. I got caught by the Sheriff for being out past curfew. He had Mom pick me up at the station. He says he thinks I’m a good kid, and thought I was doing better. Since he’s not had to call Mom for a few months now. He even tried to hook me up with his sophomore son … Cliff? Clint? I can’t remember his name. Thinks he could help keep me on the straight and narrow or something. It was a relief to get home to the only people who think I’ll be more than just some trailer trash bimbo who’ll have an abusive husband, with nothing to live for except the fear of dying.
I’ll show every one. Show them all that I Roxanne Roads Will be more and do more than any one ever will.
Today really SUCKED!
