My Ranking Points
Hey-o! 😀 I have a chapter for you turkeys.
And a question- Should I keep this chapter length or should I make it longer?
Chapter 9: The Girl In Green -Matteo’s POV
I throw my rose off into the crowd, hoping it will reach the girl in green. I don’t care for throwing roses, but we have to. The girl looks pretty-ish (and not too stuck up), I guess, so I threw my rose to her.
I hope she doesn’t think we’re now dating, or something. That would be… Disgusting. I don’t know what I’m doing here. I don’t belong. I’m just a street kid with a ****** of ‘Good’ luck.
I’m doing this for Henry, I remind myself. I’m doing this for my best friend.
I walk to a seat, next to a bored looking dude. He has brushings of dirt, which is promising. After all, what kind of prince lets himself get *****? Even on Welcoming day?
“I’m Matt.” I introduce myself, and feel a big grin rise to my face even though I don’t feel like smiling.
He nods. “Jacob Beanstalk.” He extends his hand. I laugh, amused, and take it.
Onstage, a dog with two heads introduces itself, and then starts talking, droning on endlessly. I yawn, trying not to fall asleep.
The words slide and blend into one loud hum… I cannot help but yawn… Zzz…
“Psst! Dude, wake up!” I open my eyes to see Jacob, a look of annoyance and amusement on his face. I yawn.
“So, what’d I miss?” I ask, still yawning.
“Is that the dog?” I question, stretching.
“That’s one of the heads, yes.”
“I hate dogs.” I grumble.
Jacob starts laughing. “According to my dad, who went to Good, Pollux often appears on other animal bodies because Castor wins the fight on wearing the dog body. So you’re in luck, he’ll probably teach classes as a flamingo.” I snort, and then start laughing. It is funny, I guess.
I look around, the students are getting up and heading back to their schools. I walk up to the School For Good. Ironically, it appears that Jacob and I are in the same dorm room.
MATTEO FOX & JACOB BEANSTALK, reads the plaque outside the door.
Since we have the rest of the day off, I’m gonna meet my fellow Evers.
Maybe starting with the girl I threw my rose to.
Great job! It’s a good length, but if you want to make it longer that would be fine too.
