Jazzy's Choose Your Own Adventure Chapter 3

When Things Got Weird - Part 3

“Ew!” I shrieked. Mr Quarterbrain looked up.

“Well then, pick it up!” He sneered.

I stared at him. Why in the world would I want to pick up a maggot-infested old sandwich? I bent down to reach for it and...

“Mr Quarterbrain, you’re needed in the office,” A very familiar voice called. Anastasia! She winked at me.

“Great.” Mr Quarterbrain stomped off.

“Phew, looked like you needed help.” Anastasia laughed. For a moment no-one spoke. “Sorry about this morning.” She confessed. “It’s just that I’ve never seen anyone covered head-to-toe with green goop.”

“That’s all right,” I accepted. We hugged, and I sighed, happy to have a friend again. I wondered what would happen next.

Sitting in maths class, I tried to avoid the stares directed at me.

“14”

“28”

“42”

“56”

“70”

“83 – I mean, 84”

“98”

“112”

The mundane drone of voices faded. I thought back to this morning and how ordinary things had seemed. Now I was totally embarrassed and wished I had never got out of bed this morning.

“154”

“166,” I mumbled as I stood up and down like a jack-in-a-box.

“It’s 168! Haven’t you been paying attention, Miss McKenzie?” Mr Quarterbrain thundered.

I stood up to start again: “14.”

Everyone else repeated their number. I was bored. I walked over to my bag to sneak in a snack, turned around and freaked out when I looked across the classroom...
