Chapter 9: Ah!!!!!!!
(by Meg, added on 19 March 2012 06:20 AM)

That was what had to have happened, because the next thing I knew I was back in the classroom, sitting in my old plastic chair, clutching at the desk in front of me. I could barely wrap my head around this! Couldn't even think straight it was so disorienting. But Dumass was speaking.

"There's been a lot of foreshadowing and plot development, which will ultimately lead to the death." she said.

I was like: awww crap! Waita ruin my whatev--and that's when I realized that I didn't know who was going to die, but it was going to be someone--or everyone--on the speedboat. But there was nothing I could do. I figured it was something to do with the high surf and the relatively lightweight and small craft we were embarking on. It had been built for speed over stability. I knew we all would just have to try and ride out whatever was coming, and hope we stayed afloat. What else could we do? It was going to happen! It didn't matter if we turned the boat around at once, or if we just kept going full steam ahead, or even if all of us just jumped ship. It was going to happen! And soon.

There was a little panic butterfly in my head. I had to warn them! I had to try and save someone. They had no idea what was coming. Well, neither did I, but I knew that whatever it was would be bad enough to be fatal. To take a life. I had to try and save whoever I could. And maybe I could do it too; if there was time. Time! I needed to be there. _Now! Oh please, I thought desperately at Ms. Dumass, please don't go off on a rant or lecture or analysis now! Don't hand out a worksheet, don't explain anything just turn the movie back on I need to say something I need to warn them please!

Suddenly--abruptly--Ms. Dumass complied. Turned the movie back on. And I was aboard again. Finally!
