As Rick stepped into the classroom, he let out a yawn.
“Oh, good morning, Rick!” Tammy waved.
“Hey.” Rick smiled as he waved.
Due to their meeting, Rick was a bit weary working with Tammy. However, she seemed more than capable and proved to love the kids and her job overall.
“The buses should be coming soon!” Rick nodded, sitting at his desk.
“Tammy,” Rick began.
Tammy looked up from her phone, cocking her head.
“Did you do something different with your hair?” Tammy blushed.
“Uh, no...” she laughed nervously.
“I just didn’t have time to straighten it this morning.” Rick nodded.
“It’s usually really wavy; I hate it.” She smiled, looking down.
“Why?” Rick questioned.
“Huh, why what?” Tammy asked as she looked up.
“Why do you hate your natural hair?”
“Where are you going?” Emersyn asked as Norio put his coat on.“Out.” He replied.Keren frowned.“Yeah, no shit, so where are you going?”Norio sighed.“To town, I need some peace.”Keren and Emersyn exchanged looks.“You know, since two brats ruined that for me.” He smirked.“Later.” He said, turning to the door.“Oi! don’t associate me with the word ‘brat,’ I’m only two years younger than you!” Keren cried.“Yeah! I’m five!”Keren quickly turned to Emersyn.“Sorry, kid, you still qualify for the brat discount.”Emersyn turned.“Eh!? Really!?” She cried.By the time the two turned back around, Norio was gone.“What a jerk!” Keren cried, puffing her cheeks.*As Norio began roaming through town, he n
Keren, who was busy brushing Emersyn’s hair, huffed in frustration.“Why is your hair so thick!?” She cried.Emersyn pouted.“Don’t be mean to me because Nori got mad at you for oversleeping!” She shouted.“Hah!? No! your hair is just tough, you brat!” Keren argued.Norio, busy cooking breakfast, let out a sigh.He thought about the girl from yesterday.Weird…However, before he could finish his thought, he smelled smoke.“Crap, the eggs!” He quickly took them off the stove.He slowly turned to the girls.“Do either of you like overcooked eggs...?”The girls glared at him in response.“Guess not...” He muttered.*“Oi, slow down!” Norio cried as Emersyn was tugging him along down the street.“I can see the circus; hurry up, Keren!” She hollered.<
Vera woke up from the sound of her alarm going off. “Showtime...” she smiled. “Vera,” a voice called out. “Get out here, breakfast.” Vera nodded. “Coming!” She called out in response. * As breakfast progressed, Vera looked at the clock. Any minute now... Marx, reading the newspaper, looked up. “I have to go...” He quickly got up, his stomach gurgling. “It’s a good thing we’re not performing today, huh?” One of the members chuckled. “Hey, Vera, where are you going...?” One member asked as Vera proceeded to get up. Vera shushed them and gave a wink. “To perform on my own!” She waved. Truth be told, I will never see most of you again; thanks for some fond memories... She smiled sadly as she ran. * “I hate you.” Keren glared at Norio. “Vera better be worth all of this hassle and embarrassment.” Norio smiled as he finish
“Bring your kid to work day...?” Rick looked up.“Mm!” Tammy nodded enthusiastically.“You should bring Maru!”Rick turned to her and sighed.“How many times do I have to say that Maru isn’t my-”Suddenly, there was a knock at the door.“Oh, you’re both still here...?” Ms. Hoffman asked, peeking her head in.“Y-yeah!” Rick exclaimed.Ms. Hoffman smiled.“Annette, tomorrow is bring your kid to work day, right?” Tammy questioned.Ms. Hoffman nodded. “Mm, it sure is.”She then turned to Rick.“Did I just hear you have a kid?”Rick quickly looked at Tammy, then back to Ms. Hoffman.“Y-Yea, her name is Maru!” He smiled, nodding.“I see, well, don’t be shy. I’d love to meet her.” She smiled.“Later.” She said, lea
“Hey,” Chris greeted as Rick walked in the door.“Yo, thanks a ton for babysitting.” Rick smiled.“Nah, no problem, dude, ‘sides, she fell asleep,” Chris said, pointing to the couch with Maru fast asleep on it.“By the way,” Chris began.“I wanted to tell you; I went digging through her files,” he then paused.“Her Birthday is in like, three days.”Rick quickly looked up.“Eh!?” He cried.Chris quickly raised a finger to silence him.“Yeah, according to her files, it’s on the seventeenth of October.”Rick looked around frantically.“I don’t have time, I mean, I don’t have time to put together a party an-”Chris shot him a look.“Yeah, and that’s where the four of us come in!” He smirked.“The huh...?” Rick asked, giving a confu
"Hey," Rick began as he walked over to the couch."What's up?" Chris asked."While I do appreciate the unnecessary amount of presents you got for Maru," he paused, then smirked."Oi, Oi, what are you smirking about?" Chris glared."You're a Richie rich, aren’t you?" He asked snidely.Chris blushed then quickly turned away."Nah, I just came into good money at the time, is all." He responded.Rick narrowed his eyes."Really, for when you failed at kidnapping Maru?" He taunted.Chris shot Rick a dirty look."What the hell are you trying to get at!?" He cried."Nothing," Rick paused."Abbey found something interesting about you, though."Chris turned his head."What?"Rick handed Chris his phone."Give us a tour?" He grinned."How did you find my house!?" Chris cried just as Abbey stepped into the apartment."Quit yelling, idiot." Abbey sighed."I w
Rick let out a sigh as he packed up his belongings. The school day had come to an end. * As he was walking down the hall, Ms. Hoffman tapped his shoulder from behind. Startled, he jumped. "Oh...sorry, I didn't mean to scare you." She looked at him, then quickly looked down. "N-Nah, it's fine! Is everything ok...?" He asked, chuckling nervously. Suddenly Ms. Hoffman began blushing. "M-Ms. Hoffman...?" Rick whispered, hesitantly touching her shoulder. "Are you okay...?" She looked up, blushing wildly. "Will you go on a date with me, Mr. Summers!?" She cried out. Rick nearly doubled over, quickly becoming a blushing mess too. "M-me!?" He cried. Ms. Hoffman nodded, averting her eyes. "I-I'd love to!" He stammered. Ms. Hoffman quickly looked up. "R-really?" She smiled, tearing up. She then leaned on Rick's chest. "I’ve always...wanted you." She whispered
As the cab arrived at the restaurant, Rick stepped out. He began fixing his tie, then smoothing his hair."Ok!" He beamed as he walked through the doors.He began looking around the restaurant, searching for Annette.Someone then tapped him on the shoulder. Startled, he quickly spun around.Rick was met with Annette, wearing a spaghetti strap green dress."A-Annette!" He yelped."Did I scare you again...?" She smiled softly, reaching for his hand.Rick held her hand and smiled."Shall we?" Rick asked.Annette giggled."Let's." She said.*"Chris?" A voice called out from behind the door.Chris opened the door, greeted by Tammy."Oh, Tammy!" Chris smiled."I came to see if you needed any help with watching Maru," She began as she looked over at the couch which Maru was fast asleep on.Tammy smiled softly at the sight of the sleeping girl."Actually," Chris began, loo
