The Prose Universe Part 2
Mr. Syne is no ordinary math teacher. At least, not at this school. Mr. Syne is one of those teachers that all the girls in the school find attractive. So instead of learning algebra a lot of the girls blackout and daydream about being Mrs. Syne. Apparently, Mr. Syne is their ideal husband. He’s cute, intelligent, kind, creative, and when he talks the sound of his voice makes women just want to drop their panties. However, Mr. Syne has got nothing on Ms. Vyxyn, the school’s drama teacher. I have her class after Mr. Syne. Ms. Vyxyn is considered the hottest teacher at the school. Every class she has fills the auditorium with no seats left over. With most of them being guys. Why? Because just about every boy in the school has a crush on her. Hell, even some of the adults have a crush on her. Her sweet, soothing country style voice is probably the reason a lot of boys around the school walk around with a textbook in front of their genitals in order to hide their boners. Since I’m gay, I’m one of the few boys in the school who don’t have a crush on Ms. Vyxyn.
Earlier, I told you that even some of the adults had a crush on Ms. Vyxyn. Well, no one has a bigger crush on Ms.Vyxyn than Harry Situation, the owner of the biggest newspaper in the country. He’s rich, young, single, successful and also one of the toughest movie critics in the country. He destroyed one guy’s career by writing one word in the review. The poor guy hasn’t been able to make a come back since. Damn!
A few years ago Harry came to the school to watch his niece in a school play. Ms. Vyxyn, of course, oversaw the overall production of the play and so at the end of the play she made a big thank you speech. Harry saw Ms. Vyxyn and has been chasing after her ever since. No one knows if Ms.Vyxyn likes Harry Situation, but the school happily takes the money he donates to the school’s drama program. Many think he is stuck in the friend zone, but sometimes she kisses him. This leads some to think they have an on and off relationship or at the very least are friends with benefits. Basically, no one is really certain of the nature of their relationship. From time to time, he will drop by unannounced to visit Ms.Vyxyn. Today was one of those days, so we were let out of drama class ten minutes early.
After Ms.Vyxyn’s class is lunch and I was starving. On my way to the cafeteria, I noticed that AlSalehi is heading to the auditorium. AlSalehi is a biochemist. He teaches A.P science classes for the scientifically gifted. He has a crush on Ms. Vyxyn too. He hates seeing Harry around Ms.Vyxyn. I hope Harry’s gone before AlSalehi gets there or a fight might break out. That’s not my problem, I say to myself as I enter the cafeteria.
503 Years Earlier (3 years before the Twain Revolutionary War Ends)
The sky is dark. The cold heavy wind blows through the forest. For most people work begins at dawn, but I’m not most people. So work begins at the dead of night. Few people know my name. I’m the Director of Twain Intelligence. I help the Revolution by providing important information. My code name is Sandflea68. Right now, I’m riding my horse as fast as I can to meet General Paul D. Chambers. I must make him aware that General Jumotki, a general of Emperor Jim Lamb’s forces, is planning a surprise attack. General Chambers is one of the best generals the revolution has on our side. If General Jumotki kills General Chambers, then any hope of defeating Emperor Lamb will be lost. I can’t fail. I only hope that I reach him in time. Mnezz and Mtrubenfire are not far behind me. These girls are some of the best spies we got. Once we get there, they will get Andy Betz, one of the faces of the revolution, to safety. “Stop now or die”, said a deep voice coming from behind me. I turn my head to see who the voice belonged to. He was on his own horse. He and some of his men were chasing us. “Oh no, it’s Fauxhero!”, said Mnezz. Fauxhero was a well-known spy of Emperor Lamb. “He must be here to stop us”, said Mtrubenfire. “Girls, go ahead I’m gonna take care of Fauxhero and his men. General Chambers must be warned in time.”, I said. I stop my horse and watched as their bodies quickly become smaller in the distance. I prepare for battle and ready my sword and shield.
