Who: Rosie & OPEN
What: Late to class
Where: HS Hallway
It was lovely that spring and summer were finally here. But with spring, comes rain and with rain, comes wet hallways. So when you're rushing to class and you're already late because your alarm clock never went off at the time it was supposed to, you're bound to have a slippery surprise. Usually Roz didn't care if she was on time to class or ten minutes late but that was until she had been told that if she was late one more time to class, she'd have a weeks worth the detentions.
Naturally, she made every possible effort to get to class on time but that was to no avail. She had already played hookie, claiming she was 'sick' the other day. But her parents were already at work and her brother had left for school as well, so no one would be able to call in to the high school for her and get her out of school one more day. Rather than facing her fate in detention though, Rosie made an effort to get to class as soon as possible to possibly get in the good graces of her first teacher of the day.
'Only ten minutes late. Not bad,' she thought to herself as she raced down through the entrance of the school and down to her locker. Rose didn't even bother to stop at her locker, rather she ran straight to class, her wet shoes squeaking all the way down the hall. That is, until the sound of Roz slipping and sliding echoed down the hall, accompanied by her crashing to the floor in a tangled mess. Her books splayed across the floor and everything about her was disheveled, not to mention her pants were now wet from the rain.
Roz wanted to be frustrated about what happened but she couldn't help laugh at the irony and how funny it probably looked as she slid down the hallway like it was a giant Slip'N'Slide minus the soap. Rosie sat there for a moment just laughing at herself before she reached over and started to pick up the books that had spilled out of her book bag.
