(OOC is here.)
It was a lazy May afternoon. Warm sunlight streaked in from the large windows on the side of the classroom, casting shadows of bored students on the ground and partially on the opposite wall. Time seemed to be flowing sluggishly, making the class feel like an eternity, but at long last the clock above the door in the back of the room struck 1:20, and an electronic bell sounded throughout Scarlet Cliffs High School, marking the end of seventh period and the beginning of eighth, the last period of the day.
It was Friday, and Luke Fierro was looking forward to the weekend. Of course, this week had felt particularly long and he was really craving a break. Moreover, for the first time since the beginning of school, he would have no homework this weekend. Truthfully, he did have a few math or World History worksheets to do, but he had made sure to get those done during his other classes. He had no real plans for this weekend, but he had every intention of enjoying it since weekends like this were rather rare for him.
Luke stood up from his desk, shouldering his backpack after dropping his Spanish textbook inside. His next class was Biology, a class that was reasonably challenging for him. They had recently started a new unit on plants, and Luke had heard from his friends that they’d be going outside to find different kinds of leaves. Sheesh, Luke could remember doing that in elementary school. Although, he supposed that going outside was better than listening to a mind-numbing lecture inside.
His biology classroom was right next door to his Spanish room, so Luke didn’t need to walk much. He didn’t even see any of his friends for the fifteen seconds that he was in the hallway. He honestly hated the bio room was so close to his Spanish room, because he always arrived early with nothing to do for a good two minutes before people actually start showing up. Under other circumstances, he would wander out of the room and find someone to talk to, but Mr. Olsen, the teacher, stood outside the class and would yell at if you walked by him or tried to leave his class before the period started.
Luke walked into the usual empty lab, heading to his seat toward the back of the room, dropping his backpack on the floor with a thud, figuring he wouldn’t need to take his stuff out if they were going outside. He plopped down into his chair with a slightly frustrated sigh and rested his chin on his fist, waiting for more people to come in.
