Yeah nine of us, I was in the middle
It was pretty- hectic at times but in a classroom I bet you’d be okay
Thanks, you’re sweet. I will have to give teaching some thought.
So have you been here your whole life?
Get overwhelmed easily do you?
Im sure you could manage a kid, they’re not that hard. I was in a house full of em
Not overwhelmed easily, just carried away easily.
A house full of kids?
You don’t worry about trouble, darling little Wendy, let me handle that bit
Child development, wanna teach or something?
Not really… at least I don’t think so. I am pretty sure I couldn’t control a classroom full of kids at a time, in fact I’m not sure I could control even one kid.
Fairly interesting, I meet just about everyone in town. Mostly running errands and the like, odd jobs here and there. Makes for some overtime though, that’s when the trouble starts
What’s your favorite course so far, Wendy was it?
Trouble, what trouble?
Other than the trouble part it sounds interesting. I would love to have a job where I do something different each day.
I haven’t started school yet so I’m not sure, but looking at my books and stuff my English class looks interesting and so does my child development class.
Like I said, I’ve been meeting a lot of students and no I won’t be attending university. It’s not my cup of tea so to speak, besides, I work odd jobs for Oogie and that usually takes up a lot of my time. He just hasn’t had anything for me lately
So what’s your major going to be? Do you know yet or just trying a bit of everything?
Yep, a bit of everything
Seriously though I don’t have any idea what I want to do. What kind of work do you do, is it interesting?
Well hello there Wendy, I’m Shock
Pleasure’s yours I promise you. Are you a student too? I’ve been meeting a lot of students
How did you know? I’m starting at the college here when the semester starts, are you going to be going to school too?
My future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades.
"What’s a girl to do?"
You… get to know someone new.
I’ll help you, hey, I’m Wendy.
Art shrugged a bit, sitting down at the piano when she’d gotten up. He ran a couple fingers over the keys, playing a more upbeat melody than what she was playing. Hers was beautiful and slow, his was upbeat and exciting. He didn’t play it for long though, realizing that she’d already wandered away. “So uh.. How long have you lived here? Has it been long? I don’t think I’ve ever seen you around or anything…and if I have, sorry I don’t remember. My brains not the best out there or anything.” He laughed, a bit embarrassed and scratched the back of his head. By this point, Art didn’t really know what to say and Wendy seemed distracted so he was probably just going to leave soon unless she didn’t want him to.
She was intrigued when Art played the piano, did he play everything? His song was fun, and she was impressed with his skill. She nodded and laughed a little, “Don’t worry, you aren’t going crazy, I am new. I don’t know very many people.”
An idea popped into her head and she skipped over, back to the piano and sat down on the bench next to her new friend. Placing her fingers on her keys she began playing one part of the popular, somewhat silly, duet, chopsticks. Hoping that he was familiar with it and he would just jump in, she turned to him, “so are you new?”
