“Cody; sit up straight and listen for goodness sake!” The teacher yelled at the young boy who was slumping in his sit; his head tilting down and then jerking back up as he fought the urge to go to sleep.
The boy was short and wiry and looked to be about 8 or 9 with striking red hair and matching fiery red eyes and was wearing a red jumpsuit of some kind.
“But Mr Kalister this is so boring….” The boy known as Cody whined in reply as the entire class giggled in amusement.
“I don’t care Cody; if it wasn’t for your-“ But before Mr Kalister could finish whatever he was going to say the bell rung and the entire class, including Cody, was out the door in 3 seconds flat.
Mr Kalister sighed and walked out the door; he would deal with Cody after the break.
Cody munched on his sandwich on the swing sets; which were empty except for him.
It was his favourite; Ham, turkey, lettuce and mayo.
He stopped chewing when he heard the swing next to him move; and turned around in confusion to see a girl sitting there.
Cody swallowed and put his sandwich into his lunchbox before turning back to face the girl.
He noticed the locks of her caramel brown hair that went down to her shoulders which complimented her chocolate brown eyes and the black dress she was wearing.
“Ummm…Do I know you?” Cody asked, cocking his head to the side in confusion as this girl looked to be his age but he had never seen her before.
“No I just transferred here and I thought you looked lonely right here by yourself; my name is Jessica Gatemaster.” The girl replied with a smile; a smile that shined like a thousand suns.
Cody smiled in return; offering his hand for a hand shake.
“My name is Cody Von’Bloodenstein; nice to meet you Jessica.” He replied shaking her hand.
“Hey looked; Snake boy here has a girlfriend.” A voice called out as Cody turned around to see a boy behind him.
This boy was bigger than Cody and looked to be older as well. He was rather….portly with big beefy arms and a crew cut styled haircut with blue eyes and he was wearing some sort of black tunic with a grey undergarment underneath.
“Want do you want Jet?” Cody asked nervously; his eyes pointing downwards.
“Simple; I am here for your daily beating.” Jet replied; cracking his knuckles as Cody took a step back, ready to run away.
“Leave him alone!” Jessica called out; stepping between the two boys.
“Get out of my way new girl; this doesn’t concern you.” Jet remarks; shoving her out of his way roughly as Cody feels something snap inside of his mind.
“I got this…” A voice in his mind told him; as Jet pulled his fist back.
Just before Jet’s fist could even get close to Cody’s face; Cody’s hand suddenly snapped upwards and grabbed it.
Jet struggled in the grip of iron produced by Cody; staring into his suddenly slitted eyes.
“Let go of me you stupid Snake!” Jet called out in fear; a teacher finally noticing the commotion.
Jet whimpered in pain as the grip tightened; and his wrist was slowly being twisted round.
“Hey Cody stop it!” Mr Kalister called out; as Cody ignored him and continued on.
“Stop Cody! Enough!” Jessica called out; as Cody’s eyes returned to normal.
Jet ran away as soon as Cody let go; Mr Kalister chasing after him, after all he could deal with Cody and the new girl afterwards.
Besides from what Mr Kalister had heard Jet had been bullying Cody for a while now and just wanted Cody to be with a friend for once; so he decided after the break he would bust him.
But just for now he would let Cody sit there and talk; after all Cody was a Junjuriki…
