Paradise Bay Elementary
But, that was all for the new crop of teachers...
Naomi exhaled a breath & mumbled something under her breath as she moved her finger to the spot they were reading. "The magic...ian... pulled a rabbit from his black hat..."
"Very good, Naomi! Keep going..."
"Oh God! Oh God! What do I do?" Willow worried. It was her first day teaching kindergarten and the boys were fighting.
"Stop it! Chandler Hart & Stephen Potter! Stop it this instant!" she demanded weakly.
Finally, after a few minutes they came to a halt as she nervously paced close-by, attempting to reach out & stop them from fighting.
After a few minutes, she let them both go play.
But, not too much longer...
"But, he started it! He made fun of Sheldon!"
Stephan just looked down & mumbled no.
Sighing, she gave him a bug hug. "Well, if you ever need to talk, I'm right here."
Glancing at her watch, she announced to the class, "Alright boys & girls, recess!"
"Aunt Willow, how was school today?" her nephew, Caden asked.
Pasting on a smile, she said lightly, "Oh, it was wonderful. And how was your day Caden?"
Then they would want to talk.
And he didn't know why he was so mad and sad all the time. He just was....
(It probably has something to do with the fact that his ancestors try to scare him to death each night multiple times. But, you know, other than that minor inconvenience...)
Helen tapped her finger to her lips. "He has been tired recently. Maybe we should try to make sure the older kids don't keep him up so late. Reinforce an early bedtime?" Turning to Angela, she smiled wryly. "Whatever the cause, believe that we'll address it at home."
Angela nodded. "Very good. Please keep us updated."
Arthur & Helen stood to collect their son.
