TREADING WATER - Chapter Twelve
There are all kinds of addicts, I guess. We all have pain. And we all look for ways to make the pain go away.
- Sherman Alexie
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Danny and Tucker strolled through the deserted hallways of Neptune High, with exaggerated casualness to deter any thoughts that they might be sneaking around. Because they definitely weren't sneaking. It didn't matter that the majority of the student body was currently at the football field watching the Narwhals pound the Sea Lions, and they were walking farther and farther in the opposite direction. Their walk said it all: 'We're supposed to be here'.
…at least, according to Tucker it did.
"We're going to get caught," hissed Danny, hefting his duffel bag on his shoulder.
"The school's unlocked," said Tucker, for the fifth time. "Technically we're not breaking any rules."
"I wonder if Lancer would agree… Can you get detention for looking suspicious? And are you sure the pool's going to be empty?"
"Danny,

Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Danny stared hard at the glass, eyes tight. The water inside rippled, and stilled. Again it rippled, and again it stilled, like there was a T-Rex approaching Fentonworks. Then, it puckered at its center, and plucked, and-
"Danny, sweetie, are you okay?"
He jerked backward. "What? Huh?"
"You were staring into space," said his mother, and Danny realized everyone at the kitchen table was now looking at him. "Is there something bothering you?"
He shook his head, blinking hard. "No, nothing. I was, uh, thinking about a… math problem." Inside, he winced. That was definitely one of the lamest excuses he had ever come up with.
"Maybe one of us can help you with that?" suggested Mr. Masters, and Danny realized just how bad this excuse was, surrounded on all sides by genius scientists and one soon-to-be genius scientist.
"Thanks, but I forgot most of the numbers. I'm sure I can fig

TREADING WATER - Chapter Ten
It's jarring to go from one amazing experience to another that feels ordinary. I don't quite know how to explain it. You see the uniqueness of what you've been doing, and disassociating yourself from it and going back to the 'normal' life is tough.
- Nat Wolff
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Danny found Tucker the next morning pacing at the corner near his house. When he saw Danny, the technophile rushed over exclaiming, "Dude! You're alive!"
Danny inclined his head and spread his arms. "I'm alive."
"I mean, I thought you'd be fine," babbled Tucker, "but then I thought, 'That's the Ocean'. The Ocean."
"Uh, yeah…?"
"Like with a capital 'O', Ocean! There are sharks! Man-eating merpeople! The Kraken!"
Danny laughed. "The Kraken?"
"What? We have mermaids, why not the Kraken? Why not Cthulhu, while we're at it?"
Shaking his head, Danny clapped a hand down on his friend's shoulder and said, "I missed you, Tuck." It felt like months since they had seen each other, no

TREADING WATER - Chapter Nine
You do your own time in prison. You don't do anyone else's time for them.
- Neil Gaiman
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The dead fish floated sluggishly to the floor, where it bounced a little and settled.
Danny looked from it to the indifferent guard, who had already turned his back on the cell. Then he returned his eyes to the fish, wondering for what possible reason it had been tossed into the cell so unceremoniously. At first he thought it was a morbid warning from the Empress. Behave, spy, or this will be you.
However, it was at about the same time that Danny's stomach gurgled, reminding him he had not eaten since before leaving Tucker's house, at least a day earlier. Actually, his stomach had been what woke him up that morning. Assuming it was morning. It was hard to tell how much time had passed, in the unchanging darkness of the prison.
So he remembered Kaima's exclamation regarding the merfolk diet: Merfolk don't eat humans. We eat fish.
Fish.

TREADING WATER - Chapter Eight
You can't believe how bleeding scary the sea is! There's, like, whales and storms and shit! They don't bloody tell you that!
- Libba Bray
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"The Fenton Wetsuit," Jack Fenton proclaimed, fists on his hips and one foot propped upon an overturned bucket. Waves crashed behind him, spraying above the deck and glimmering in a brief rainbow. "The only wetsuit in the world that's actually a dry suit! And I'm not just saying that to cover up the fact that I didn't know the difference between the two when I named them," he added, winking.
"Jack, dear, who are you talking to?" said his wife, who was busy checking the data log for the first buoy on their route.
Jack's audience, the seagull sitting on the railing of the MAC, squawked and flew away. "I'm practicing, Mads!" he said, whirling around. "For the day everyone believes in merpeople, and we'll need to start selling our inventions. We're so close to catching one of those merfiends that I can almost taste i

TREADING WATER - Chapter Seven
There's nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.
― Dave Barry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Think fast!"
"If you throw your drink on me one more time, Tucker, I swear I will turn into a merman and eat you."
The tech-enthusiast laughed this off. "Nah, you'd suffocate before you got close. Besides, I've got these bad boys to help me run away," he said, raising his feet in the air and wiggling his toes.
"I just need my head to change, Tuck. I just need my head."
Tucker gulped, and his voice jumped an octave. "You don't want to eat me. I'm bad for your health, chock full of trans fat and bacon grease."
They were at Tucker's house that Friday evening. To Tucker's parents, their story was that Danny would be going home Sa

TREADING WATER - Chapter Six
What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.
– Werner Herzog
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Danny wondered how historical events got their names. Did the old geezers who wrote the textbooks figure it out, or was it the people back then? Like, did they go down to the pub a few days after something happened, and for the sake of being able to reference it, let some drunk dude coin a clever phrase to use?
Case in point: the War of Jenkins's Ear.
It was a good name, but imagine being that guy, Jenkins. You'd go down in history as the guy who lost an ear, complained about it, and started a nine-year war. Nothing else you did would even matter. You'd be 'that ear guy' forever.
Whose fault was that?
And why was Danny worrying about this during his history class, when he actually couldn't care less about the war in question?
He was thinking about his own destiny – the day when his secret disfigurement was blown. Once dis

TREADING WATER - Chapter Five
She had a strange feeling in the pit of her stomach, like when you're swimming and you want to put your feet down on something solid, but the water's deeper than you think and there's nothing there.
― Julia Gregson
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Danny tried to see how long he could stay in bed. If he didn't move, if he didn't open his eyes, technically he was still asleep.
This worked for a while. Then his leg itched, and he had to scratch it. Scratching his leg made him realize he'd slept the whole night on his stomach, and now his neck was sore. Turning his head caused sand to fall out of his hair, showering his pillow, so that when he put his head back down his face rubbed against grit.
"Darn it," he grumbled. "Okay. I'm up."
It was almost noon. Danny's bedroom was warm; sunlight streamed through the cracks in the blinds, illuminating the dust motes. Danny stretched, listening to all of his joints 'pop'. As he did this, he inventoried his bedroom – the Hubble Tele

TREADING WATER - Chapter Four
For in tremendous extremities human souls are like drowning men; well enough they know they are in peril; well enough they know the causes of that peril;-nevertheless, the sea is the sea, and these drowning men do drown.
― Herman Melville
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In retrospect, Danny couldn't say he was surprised when Kwan and Tyler grabbed him. He had been expecting some sort of retribution since the moment Mikey spilled the news on Tuesday. But – again in retrospect, because nothing says 'twenty-twenty vision' like hindsight – Danny realized that he had let his guard down. If he had stayed with Tucker, this probably wouldn't have happened.
Now, he was being carted off and away from the crowded public beach. To a place where there would be no witnesses. What there would be to witness – or not, as it were – was Danny's only question now.
He struggled. Of course he did. But how was one short, 100-pounds-when-wet, slightly battered loser

TREADING WATER - Chapter Three
Ocean, n. A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man — who has no gills.
― Ambrose Bierce
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If Danny had to sum up Tuesday, he would use the word "suck", as in "it did". He might have chosen a better word, but his vocabulary was not that large. If there was a word that captured the taste of sour milk as an emotion, he would have picked that one.
No one – among the ninth graders, the only ones who actually cared – knew how to behave toward Danny, nor did Danny know how to behave toward them. That much was clear as soon as he walked through the front doors of Neptune High that morning and most of the students stopped talking to openly stare at him.
His face was not helping matters any; it was practically a neon sign flashing "I was wailed on". Despite the efforts of the frozen peas, his eye had nearly swollen shut, and it was so blue it was almost black. His lip was still swollen and was marred by a cut t

TREADING WATER - Chapter Two
He was swimming in a sea of other people's expectations. Men had drowned in seas like that.
― Robert Jordan
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
High school clearly was not going to be a walk in the park, but all things considered, Danny's first day was going well.
They had had to sit through the obligatory welcome assembly, during which Jazz gave an 'inspiring' speech that none of the students listened to, followed by a speech by the vice principal and head English teacher, Mr. Lancer, about how their entire futures depended on these next four years. That had turned Danny's blood cold. So maybe Lancer was being over-dramatic, but his words rang true – if Danny did not get good grades here, he wouldn't get into any prestigious science or engineering programs in college and then would never get into NASA's space program.
It instilled a sense of urgency in Danny that he didn't know what to do with, and he sat through first period tapping his fingers against his thighs.

I teach English at a high school in Japan.  The best part of the job, by far, is my dear, precious students.  They're always amazingly cute, but occasionally they'll outdo themselves.     

We assigned a project to our Advanced Reading students to write a two-minute skit.  The only rules were that it needed to use some words they had learned from the textbook and it needed to have an important message for the audience.  

One pair decided to write a fictional account of my life.  The title:  "Why M--- Loves Curry".  
**letters removed from my name to preserve my mysterious allure** :socool: 

For your reading pleasure...

Why M--- Loves Curry


(N = Narrator     M= M--- (me)    S= student)

N:  M--- is very cute and compassionate English teacher.  She is tired and works hard every day, but she likes teaching English.  Suddenly, M--- has a misfortune.  She teaches English as usual.  Unfortunately, the monster appears at the Kita High School. 

M:  Oh!!!  Sounds bad!  Is everyone OK?

S:  Help me, M----!  I want to live!!

N:  The boy is taken away by monster.  M--- is crying all day long. 

M:  I am very very sad.  I don't want to eat... 

N:  M--- has a responsibility to help the boy.  

M:  I must kill the monster, and I must rescue the boy!

N:  M--- is worried about how to rescue the boy.  Finally, M--- decides. 

M:  First, I make a lot of curry.  Next, the monster is full.  At last I kill the monster!

N:  Curry is easy to cook and cheap.  She arrives at the place living the monster.  She gives the monster curry.  The curry made monster happy, so the monster returned the boy.  M--- ate the curry, too. 

M:  It is delicious!  I may be genius.  

N:  When M--- goes back to the city, she becomes a big star because she helped the boy by curry.  Many people give her curry.  The curry is very delicious, and she likes the curry.  M---'s curry impacted many people.  It was sold by many countries.  And she can earn so much money.  

(THE END)  


I'm not sure what message this story is intended to teach the audience.  But heck, they got one thing right - curry is delicious.  Soup Emote
