    Truthfully, Joshua shoulda known better than to intrude upon Sabrina’s and Rachel’s little pow-wow. He felt that they all seemed so comfortable amongst each other, that what was the big deal? Wrong! Judging by the disparaging look she gave to him and Britney, it was a big deal, to the platinum blonde anyway.

    But instead of protesting or reprimanding them, she turned and walked away from the trio. Within a few paces (or as long as it took her to come into contact with other students), she began her meet-and-greet session, shaking hands while also promoting Joshua for the social events coordinator position. A position he wasn’t so sure he wanted.

    His inner circle of male friends were still unaware of this, because if they knew, he’d for surely catch some grief from them. Scratch that. Amend it to lotsa grief. Led Zeppelin sang about Whole Lotta Love, while Joshua was left to croon about Whole Lotta Grief. Perhaps Rachel’s Angels hadn’t made their way to Calvin, Charles, and the rest just yet. He did, after all, walk to school with Britney and Calvin, and not a peep about it from the latter.

    Joshua smirked as Rachel explained Sabrina’s DQ and Grace’s words of encouragement to “prove yourself.” So that was the racket they’d heard upon entering the school. Sheesh, Sabrina musta been really pissed to sound off like that, he reflected. Maybe that’s why she seemed so put-out at his and Britney’s intrusion.

    Now that they were a threesome again, though the third wheel had been swapped for someone better looking (sorry, Calvin!), they followed Rachel’s lead and motion to join her. "One of you want to explain what I got so wrong last night?" she asked. Simultaneously, Joshua held his tongue while also snuffing out any chance of escaped laughter, for Britney’s expression was beyond an ordinary, ho-hum priceless.

    Following Britney’s declaration and question, Rachel finally got it. She apologized and explained the trying circumstances of that moment last night. As he waited for the right opening, it just presented itself right after Rachel was done speaking. “I dunno, Rache. I still thought it was classic how you took that one word and gave it an all-new meaning,” he stated. “Y’know, big-a-her and big-a-me.” He grinned at her, not even trying to compete with Britney’s toothy smile.

    Rachel chuckled. "It was pretty much the whole day, I mean, think about it. My freaking brain was on overload from about 930am when that e-mail came across, through last night's chili dinner which ended up being all about who Mom said I could marry. You have to admit that for me, the bright spot was that you and Brit tied. As long as it's one of you two, Mom will be satisfied."

    Rachel then grimaced as she thought of something. "Shit a brick!" Britney cocked her head to one side and let out an unmistakable sound that was a cross between a purr and a 'questioning' canine whine. Rachel gave her a strange look, but immediately shook it off and explained. "That means you two are automatically invited for Chanukah (Hanukkah)!" She looked at the two. "Might as well mark your social calendars now as busy for those eight days... You'll even be spending the nights." Good thing that wasn't until December, but by then... Josh might be the school's social coordinator. Good thing also about Michelle's promise of being his co-worker on that should either of them win.

    With Kelly broadcasting Josh's part in the fall of Calamity, as well as other aspects from paper to friendliness in general, it wouldn't be long until it got to the nerds... Then Sabrina told gamer (and fellow nerd) Mythrel, who played that name, but as an elf ranger on an online medieval game called Empires and Puzzles, what Josh was in the running for... It was going to be all over nerd nation... Including Michelle's promise... By the time lunch rolled around. Would Brit and Rachel even be welcome at the nerd table, which they went to at least once a week, but definitely on a Wednesday?

    Rachel made an excellent as well as an accurate point. Her entire day merging into evening had been a whirlwind, rollercoaster, and perfect storm all rolled into one. How she managed to survive it and come out smelling like roses was anyone’s guess. To Joshua, it spoke volumes of her character, not to be confused with her being a character. Although he did recall how down she appeared to be, prior to seeing the heart he had removed from his slice of cake. After that, sunshine had bullied its way through the dark clouds surrounding her.

    Both Britney and Joshua were somewhat surprised at Rachel’s exclamation. And then she mentioned Chanukah and social calendars and eight days and spending the nights and, wait, what?! He highly doubted he could spell the word, not to mention knowing what the holiday entailed. Clueless was a perfect one-word description for what he knew about it. Not wanting to be an absolute ignoramus about a holiday that was so near and dear to her, he remained silent. Google would become his tutor in all things Chanukah. And if more intel was required, he would then ask Rachel to fill in the blanks.

    It mighta taken awhile to sink in, but it eventually did. While scanning the hallway, Joshua noticed Sabrina conversing with Mythrel. That was it. End of story. Game over, man. So much for that position of social events coordinator remaining hush-hush. No one was gonna prevent that freight train from plowing ahead now.

    As the day progressed, classes seemed to meld from one to the other. Although still somewhat tired from Chili Night At The Landers, Joshua always perked up whenever it was time for lunch. Not only did it grant him an opportunity to feed his pie hole, but it also served as a time to play catch-up with his friends and fellow nerds. Unsurprisingly, the buzz was all about his candidacy for the social events coordinator position. He never heard the end of the constant ribbing, though when all was said and done, everyone wished him luck while promising to vote for him.

    Seeing Rachel and Britney enter the cafeteria, he waited until they were close enough to establish eye contact. Once achieved, Joshua motioned for the pair to join him at the nerd table. He had saved seats for them, one on either side of where he was. Upon approach to the table, which wasn’t filled to capacity but almost, everyone seated stood as one. As the girls claimed their seats, the standing geekdom sat, again in perfect unison. Although no one at the moment claimed responsibility for the obvious choreography, it was a safe bet to assume that Joshua was behind it.

    Lunch was going to be different for one of the girls, as Rachel had an empty tray save for two halfpints of milk.

    Britney had come over with two orders of the cheeseburger lunch complete with large crinkle cut fries. "Don't think your gift this morning is going unrewarded." She commented, turning over a plate to Josh. "Now granted it's nowhere as delish as that mesquite sammy this morning..." She put over the extra plate of toppings after stealing an onion slice, "But I love... In order... Taco Tuesday, Spaghetti (which is the Tuesdays tacos aren't served), Cheeseburgers and Seaworthy Fridays. Heard this week it's Cod filet sandwiches." She pointed to the serving of food she placed on his tray, "I'll never leave a buddy hangin'." She offered a fist to bump, and pretty much everyone knew what that meant. Fist explosion upon bump, with sound effects and wiggling fingers.

    Mythrel looked at Rachel. "Aren't you hungry?"

    Rachel nodded, "I was supposed to eat my words yesterday... So Josh..." She smiled and waved to her empty tray (as she pulled the milk off) like some game show model presenting some prize or other.

    All eyes turned to Josh for explanation and/or reaction.

    Now that everyone was seated again, friendly banter and light bragging filtered throughout the table. Pwning noobs in multiplayer gaming sessions always resulted in laughter. Joshua believed it was always favorable to participate in multiplayer with people you knew, rather than strangers met online. That always reduced chances of teammates rage quitting, not to mention strategies were always agreed upon because he and his friends as teammates actually spoke to one another.

    Surprise, surprise, as he clearly was when Britney handed him a plate with a cheeseburger and crinkle cut fries, in addition to a plate with toppings for the burger. The spiral ham and cheddar cheese sandwich his Mom had made for him could wait. After thanking her for the surprise lunch, Joshua made a mental note for that cod filet sandwich she mentioned for Fridays. He never could keep the scheduled menu straight, thinking his Mom made him much better lunches than the school ever could.

    Britney’s offered fist was emphatically returned, and she even embellished the bump with an explosion. The sound effects and wiggling fingers were definite bonuses. No surprise there. All who saw the exchange laughed along with the pair.

    "Aren't you hungry?" Mythrel asked Rachel. Following a nod, she sorta explained why her tray was devoid of food, save the couple of milk containers. Only when she said his name and gracefully motioned toward her tray did Joshua understand what was going on. That’s right, he thought, the special cookie his Mom had made for him to present to her. Eating her words, in a manner of speaking.

    Prior to handing it over, however, he inquired while rummaging in his backpack, “If you’re still hungry after the cookie, Rache, you can have my ham and cheese sandwich. My Mom made it, so you know it’s gonna be good.” Prize finally located, he removed the lid from the Tupperware (absolutely nothing was gonna crush it or break it apart) and placed the container on her tray. Those farthest away actually left their seats and stood behind the pair, thus gaining a clear view of what the fuss was all about. Her lonesome milks made perfect sense now.

    As promised, on a dark-chocolate cookie, the phrase Predator Isn’t A Hero was spelled out in white frosting. Also included was a rendition of the Xeno hunter’s shoulder cannon. A blue M & M represented the weapon’s laser sighting. At least he hoped it did. But then, if you were familiar with the Yautja, you could tell what it was.

    “There you go, Rache. All yours. Bon appétit.” he said with a grin. Though by no means could his grin ever wish to compete with Britney’s. Damn her and her toothy smile, Joshua thought, very nearly laughing. Expressions varied all around the nerd table, but make no mistake, everyone was also smiling as they watched with a keen interest Rachel’s next move.

    Without a doubt, the cookie looked delicious.

    Other castes also left their seats to gather around and look at the cookie. A verbal fight broke out between a nerd and jock, which was nothing new... Except this time, it seemed to be the number of pieces any particular alien got blown into. The jock said two million, while the nerd (who had to be a math nerd) gave a more precise number, that to the casual listener, sounded pulled out of thin air. Mythrel turned a little green. "Ew. Take that discussion elsewhere guys... Some of us are trying to eat."

    A basketball girl thought she was giving incentive offered Rachel a kiss if she could eat the whole thing in ten minutes.

    Britney jumped up and got in her face, making animated movements first toward herself then poking the girl basketball player in the chest, saying ala Quick Draw McGraw. "Ah'll do the kissin' 'round here... An' doan chu fergit IT!"

    Some poor nerd lost his milk out his nose as Mythrel spewed Mountain Dew out of her mouth. Even the jock and nerd arguing cracked up. Britney once again had everyone in stitches.

    Rachel choked on her first bite, trying to keep FROM laughing as hard as the others. She'd miss the kiss deadline though. By five minutes. Still, fifteen wasn't bad, considering the cookie's size. She shook off the sandwich and quoted a classic advertisement for Alka-Seltzer. "I can't believe I ate the whole thing."

    It was somewhat surprising to Joshua when students from other tables gathered around for a glimpse of the cookie. What was more astonishing was the fact that a few of those students were jocks. A male student-athlete got into an argument with a nerd about an alien’s blown apart bits. Bad idea, as one should never challenge a nerd where numbers were concerned. Almost as bad an idea as tugging on Superman’s cape, spitting into the wind, and pulling the mask off the ol’ Lone Ranger combined.

    Any potential conflict was quickly mitigated after Britney’s perfect impression of Quick Draw McGraw toward a female hoops player. Everyone who’d heard her statement were cackling with glee. An unlucky few had their chosen beverage escape through their noses. Thankfully, Joshua wasn’t one of them, though he very nearly gagged on a pair of crinkle-cut fries. If she wasn’t careful, she’d soon be known as the Class Clown, assuming she wasn’t already. Britney was definitely looked upon as such, amongst the nerds anyway. She seemed to have an innate gift for entertaining those around her.

    Rachel passed on his ham and cheese sandwich, choosing to concentrate on the cookie instead. Not to be embarrassed in front of all who had gathered, she showed the cookie who was boss by downing the entire thing in about 15 minutes. Those milks came in handy for washing it all down.

    A cheer erupted as the last piece of Predator Isn’t A Hero disappeared from sight. "I can't believe I ate the whole thing," she deadpanned to the enjoyment of those within earshot. Losing himself in the joyous moment, Joshua put an arm around Rachel and gave her a congratulatory squeeze for a job well-done. Anna would be most pleased to hear that there were no leftovers.

    Britney seemed to lead the huzzahs, hurrays, and every other form of cheer. There was little doubt that choosing to be a cheerleader for the lycanthrophy sufferer was a good move. Several students from every caste had their phones out, though no one knew at the time one was streaming it live on MeTube (YouTube), and another on LifeBook (Facebook). Both going viral in a matter of moments after they started. Chirper (Twitter) was going absolutely nuts and although there were a few rude comments, for the most part, everyone seemed to cheer the high school senior who had to eat her words. One Predator fan going so far as to say that everyone who thought like this high school senior had would do as she when she was proven wrong... Science Fiction fans would find more peace among those who liked Predator and those who didn't.

    Only those livestreaminging would see how popular Rachel was for eating her words, (more than a million) and there weren't many filming; the others including Josh, Rachel, Brit, Mythrel and others would have to wait until after school.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    As seventh bell drew to a close; just fifteen minutes left, Jinni gave the afternoon announcements. An oddity, as it usually fell on the Principal. "We hope you have all decided on which deserving candidate for social events coordinator you will vote for tomorrow, as during the first ten minutes you will be expected to check your ballot and turn it in. Those running are once again reminded they cannot vote for themselves. The candidates are Michelle Columbo, Joshua Kirkpatrick and Britney Waters. Good luck to all three and may the best candidate win. Other announcements:" Rachel decided to tune out about the other reminders. Senior Day, Alumni Week, an upcoming fieldtrip for Freshmen, Football and cheer practice the next day for Friday Night, and other school news. Including the reason she was doing the announcements. She lost the bet with the Principal on if Rachel was going to finish the cookie. She then apologized to her!

    Rachel couldn't wait for announcements to be over so Phys Ed class could be dismissed for showers. She couldn't remember if she had told Josh and Brit to meet her in the gym after school or not... She hoped so as she headed to the locker room. She'd know when she got back up as the bell ending the day would ring in five minutes.

    Was all the hoo-hah that surrounded Rachel because of who she was, meaning the captain of the cheer team? Or was it on account of everyone who’d gathered nearby was just bored outta their gourd? Or was it something else, something he might be missing? Clearly, her promise of eating her words via cookie had circulated within the school. Not counting her friends, there was more than a few phones recording the (historic?) event. Joshua gave her major props for holding up her end of the bargain, even more so that she did it in the public eye. Not that he had any doubt that she’d ever renege on the deal.

    Now that the social event of cookie consumption was a fading memory, it was nearing the end of school. The P.A. system chimed, alerting everyone that the afternoon announcements were forthcoming. The names of the trio of candidates for the social events coordinator were mentioned, while also urging everyone to cast their ballot. Eh? That sounded like Jinni. What was she doing reading the announcements? More often than not, the Principal completed that task. Wonder if she got some kinda promotion or something, he thought.

    He nearly laughed out loud at Jinni’s reminder that the candidates couldn’t vote for themselves. Yeah, right, Joshua thought. He wouldn’t vote for himself even if it was allowed. Besides, his precious vote was earmarked for Britney, especially since if either he or Michelle won, they’d agreed on becoming co-coordinators.

    And then Joshua did laugh out loud after Jinni explained why she unusually inherited announcement duties. Sheesh, did she really think Rachel wouldn’t or couldn’t finish the cookie? Whether she was prescient or not, Rachel had nailed it, as he recalled how she bypassed lunch and even declined his ham and cheese sandwich. A full or semi-full stomach would not assist her in polishing off the Predator cookie. He was just glad he’d gotten a picture of it prior to its disappearance.

    Now that school was officially over for the day, Joshua met Britney on their way to the gym. Rachel didn’t divulge why they were to meet her, only requesting that they be there.

    "Betcha it has something to do with tomorrow." Britney said as she and Josh headed towards the gymnasium. "Pretty warm today. Not unseasonably... As that would've been 80s and humid, but still..." She half covered a yawn. "Rain's coming tonight. Hope it's over by the time we head to school." Brit seemed uncharacteristically bored.

    Coach White saw Josh and came up to him as Britney made her way to the bleachers. "I'll need your help with the mats in the morning. We can't leave them down as I'd like, because they're waxing the floor overnight. Preparing early for volleyball and basketball, but... Whatcha gonna do, eh? Also, if you can before you head home? Drop this off at the Principal's. No later than tomorrow morning, though." He handed Josh a note with the names cut following the last few days. It was also a request to make it an all female squad. Armand had been absent again, the other boy quit, but Chaz name would be the sore thumb with disciplinary action requested in red in the coach's handwriting. At the bottom of the paper in blue, was Once again requesting for a certified assistant coach. Although I have enjoyed students' assisting with small matters... It shouldn't fall on them. Thank you

    Rachel came out into the gym and saw her two friends. "Was hoping Jinni, Mythrel and Calvin would join us, since we're all nearby."

    Jinni had to put the paper to bed (print it), Mythrel misheard and was outside by the geraniums. Calvin? Well, Mythrel hadn't seen him yet.
