Oh but, I do. Ask George about the Comma class. *Smile*

We had everything for school. Ink, not for writing, but for dunking pig tails in. A nasty cheese that stunk up the room, my gift to everyone.

And then somehow things got out'ta control. George started packing live weapons. We felt compelled to gather our own. From bows and arrows, shotguns, to an armored tank. Or was it George after we became armed? Hmmmm, memory slips me.

Anyway, George is seasoned now. Gon'na have to wake up early to get one in on him.*Smile* Tossing jelly beans will probably garner him as a buddy. He's become sort of, well sweet on anyone with them.

by Katzendragonz (68)


Glad to have you here, Missy!

Things have been rather quiet this week. I didn't think I was that scary! Jelly beans may be thrown at . . . OOOPS! to George.

You want to throw something at Ms. Katz it had better be M&M's. Plain ones please! The prettier the colors the better!!!!!

Oh Excuse Me! Did I say that? Time to get uuhhhhh mmmmm ooooh! "serious". Everyone back to grammar now.

P.S. Imagine . . . NO stinky cheese in this classroom!!!

by ImagineTryingToLearnToBeSingle (67)

I see da cat's out'ta da bag now, Missy. Yep, the Comma class rocked, and George came out of shell, er, hole.

Honestly, I was on my way to the store to pick up a fresh piece of Limburger cheese, and a small pint of goats milk. The idea was to mix the two in a jar and bring my cow syringe.
After several days of fermenting I'd planned on spreading my nifty mix on some desk bottoms. The class would've been on a new planet once the fumes gathered.

But I see Ms. Katz killed that one.

Back to the drawing board.

by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)

Winnie's class always gets a little out of hand, Imagine. *Laugh* That sounds like a nasty combination, so I'm glad Ms, Katz squashed that one before you ended up clearing the classroom. I know you'll come up with something even better, but to be on the safe side, you'd better do it when she's not looking. *Wink*

by ImagineTryingToLearnToBeSingle (67)

Lot'ta years looking around the corner of my eye. *Bigsmile*

One of my buddies has a couple R/C planes. I'm already on a whole new track of thinking.*Bigsmile*

by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)

That sounds pretty exciting. Are you going to load them with rotten eggs and bomb the class with them? *Smirk* That would be really funny, but try not to hit me, will ya? *Laugh*

by Winnie Kay (218)

Cool! Ms. Katz says we can throw M&Ms around. I'll go see if I can find some.

[Winnie runs down the hall to her classroom and raids George's locker.]

I'm back. I found these under a block of Limburger cheese next to George's Home & Garden magazines. They're kind of smelly... but... here ya go.

by Ember (204)

I don't have the guts Missy? Really? Wow, I have to get out of my email faster some how... Dial up does not like 30 emails every morning. I'm trying to figure out how I suddenly became so popular. :)

Okay we were talking about guts. *Walks up to Ms Katz desk and places a large crystal bowl full of pastel color M&M's with no nuts. Then gives an evil grin to Missy as I pelt her with a handful of Jelly Beans, forgetting how bad my aim really is and end up hitting Imagine instead.*

Well, my aim stinks but at least I got one of ya.

by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)

Yuck! I don't think I'd want to eat any m&ms that were hidden under stinky cheese. I think I'd rather take my chances with the funny looking green ones. *Sick*

Please don't hurt me, George! I'm completely innocent. *Worry*

*Runs off to hide behind Winnie and her ruler*

by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)


How odd. It seems that Ms. Katz turned her back at such an opportune moment and took the m&ms with her. Me thinks this needs further investigation. *Takes out her trusty *Magnify* to search for clues.*

by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)

It seems he doesn't need much encouragement. I did try to be good, but sometimes it gets so hard. *Frown* I have been noticing some flowers missing and a dirt trail, but I just thought that was Becca setting one of us up to get the blame.

by Winnie Kay (218)

Good grief, I'm not sure it was a good idea to have Missy and Imagine in the same classroom.

[Winnie runs to Katz's office to dispel any plans for an outing...]

Today I'm having some real time with this lesson. I just might get it finished. Oh, I've got a headache. Time for a break.

Imagine steps outside. His buddy just arrived with the three planes. Imagine climbed into Pete's truck to get away from the school house.

Imagine offered a quick overview of his new plans to his friend, Pete. A tall, well framed ex-navy chopper pilot.

Pete parked the truck along the edge of an open field.

"The Flying Fortress will do everything you need, Imagine." His thick mustache was unable to conceal a grimy grin.

"Help me pull the tarp off the rack, Imagine."

Imagine could hardly control his excitement when three planes appeared parked wing to wing across his flatbed, cradled by a network of aluminum bars.

Soon the B-17 was filled with fuel, and in the air. Pete with the controller in hand.

Imagine could identify some new gadgets Pete installed on the hand held device.

Amazing how it's wings reach farther than my height, and it's up there appearing so natural.

"Imagine" Pete said with a bit of laughter growing in his throat. "I rigged the bombay doors for something big. I had no idea you'd be putting eggs in there." His throat burst with rolling laughter while his words broke intermittently. "You'll be able to fit a dozen eggs in her belly."

Pete tapped his finger on a red toggle switch.

"When you release the boiled and rotted eggs." Pete's voice rattled with growing excitement. "Flip the red toggle." His bold dark eyes glistened against the sunlight. "This will ignite the fuses on the firecrackers. I increased their length to accommodate their time just before impact."

Imagine's vision of egg bombs falling from the plane brought a tickled sensation to his ribs.

"Now, Imagine" Pete continued "In order to get your roman candles to hit their targets just dip the nose, and press this button I rigged to fire them off."

Imagine observed as the bomber tipped its nose downward as Pete controlled its descent. Imagine, imagined rockets firing from the plane. The four engine ship kept the tracking true.

"Pete, I think Missy will be highly impressed."

Soon Imagine crept back into class, and began working on his lesson.


by Winnie Kay (218)



Oh boy... I'm going back to my comma classroom...

Good luck, Katz!!! See ya later...

Thanks, Imagine. You're proving to be a pretty good asset too. Not to worry, I've got your back. Nobody's going to mess with us, if they try, they'll have to catch me first.

I've got the outing figured out. We don't need to wait on Ms. Katz for that. We'll just pull the emergency fire alarm and watch them scatter. With the whole school running around, that gives us more targets. The eggs are all taken care of. I have a dozen left from easter, so they're sure to make some lovely confetti when they explode, and I sat a dozen raw ones in the sun this morning. If we can't use all of them, the academy chef agreed to take them off our hands so he could make some egg salad the next day. Be sure to bring your own lunch that day.

You keep working with that plane every chance you get since we'll only get one shot at this, and I'd hate to think that even one egg or roman candle was wasted.



by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)



*Laugh*

Ask Pete if he can make some bird camouflage for it so no one will suspect what's happening. Since Winnie's spilled the beans to Ms. Katz, she my get a little suspicious if she sees a plane.

Absolutely, packing my lunch.

I'll need you to be pretty close to me. I don't want anyone seeing the remote control in my hands. It'll take a few seconds to get the plane in the air, and in position.
I want it to come over the school. Noone would hear it's engines and props until it's too late.
You cover me from the front as I straighten the flight path for the bomb run. Then I'll make a quick dive, and fire the roman candles.

Out'ta be a hoot.


I'm not worried about the plane. The tree line to the south is just close enough to maintain radio contact. I'll come in early the day we do this, and park it, facing the back of the school.

I just need to practice blind takeoffs, and time the climb needed to get above the schools roof.

Well, you might have a point. Yeah, Pete has a few camouflage nets. I can get one and stretch one over a tripod, across the plane. This will break up the planes configuration. I'm sure someone would see it just sitting along the edge of the woods.

It will be able to begin its takeoff from beneath the cover.

Good thinking, Missy.

Imagine.

Missy, I've got another neat idea. After we make our mess with the bomber, why don't we see if Pete can rig that P-51 fighter. I'd like to get George in the air.

That of course depends how we fair after this fiasco.

Let's rock this school house.

Of course I'm going to stand close to you. Do I look crazy enough to take my chances of getting hit by milling around the dropzone?

You should have plenty of cover. I'll be carrying a big bag full of the necessary supplies. I can't wait to see their egg splattered faces.

Oh you brought a goody bag. I can hardly wait to see what you've brought.

Oh boy, my mind is going into overdrive. When I was a kid, living on the farm my friends, and I would pull a variety of pranks on neighbors across the road.
One was filling a paper bag with human feces, lighting it, and knock on the door just before we bolted out of sight.
Yep, the door would open. Usually there was a man answering to discover a fire at his feet. Oh it was hilarious to see. They'd stomp it out, and have one god awful mess on their feet or shoes.

I think this can work here.

Imagine.

by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)



Yeah. That Winnie thinks she so smart, but we'll show her. How quickly she forgets that we could end up back in her class at any term. *Smirk*

We're pretty awesome anyway. I don't know how we'll outdo the egg bombing thought. That's a pretty good one.

I'll tell you one thing that's in the bag, our lunch. I don't think we want to try to eat in the same room as all of those stinky people.

What!? No cow tipping!? *Shock* I'm not so sure about the steaming poo. That may be a little too much stinkiness. *Sick*


"Shhh, George, you're making too much noise."

[Winnie and George are hiding in the closet of the Grammar Garden Class and intercepting communications between the co-conspirators.]

"This intel will be vital to preventing disaster at the Academy, George, not to mention a possible raise in my lousy teaching salary once I bring their dastardly plan to Ms. Katz's attention."

[Winnie whispers in George's furry ear as he munches on red jelly beans.]

"For heaven's sake, you insufferable rodent, can't you control your addiction for one minute!"







"Did you hear that, George!! They're planning a personal attack on you, the Comma Sense Class Monitor!! Hmm... they're smarter than I thought. If they use jelly beans as ammunition, you will be rendered completely useless as you succumb to the distraction of your drug of choice being dropped from the plane. We have to plan a counter attack, George. Let's get out of this closet while they're not looking. Beside, I can't stand to be this close to you. Ugh, you smell like a gopher."

[Winnie eases open the closet door just as Missy and Imagine turn their backs to gaze out the window at the tree line hiding the bomber plane. Then she hears them mention her name!!]

Oh no... they're talking about taking my comma class again, George. I don't think I could take that. I'd probably go completely mad, I tell you! We've got to do something...



by ImagineTryingToLearnToBeSingle (67)



Naw, his plane won't be armed. I have something special in mind for our furry little friend. He used to be real quiet and timid. Since the Comma class I attended he's become pretty outspoken, and very brave.

I figure a wild flight will really tame him down a bit. I haven't quite figured out how to coax him into the plane yet. But once he's up there, I'm sure he'll have a whole new experience on life. *Smile*

Aww, Winnie's pretty cool. She's laid back, not really up with the moment yet. She can crack the whip in class pretty good, but I think we have a pretty good idea how to work around her.

What's helping us right now is George isn't watching every move we make since he's with Winnie. But if he should begin making school house appearances we'll need to stock up on jelly beans. He can't turn them down now.

I'm already pegged to return to her class, and she'll have one up on me. Knowing enough about me to realize nothing can be taken for granted. *Bigsmile*

I'm not so worried about eating in the same room as everyone else. What worries me is how that egg concoction will churn in everyone's insides. That will be awful to endure not long after lunch is over.
Everyone will be ripping loose on those wooden desk seats, which of course will reverberate like crazy. And the rotted sulfur odor that will accommodate these explosions.

I really don't know if I'll be able to contain myself from laughing to death.

Oh man, I'm laughing now. The students, the teachers and the rest of the staff just having an all day rip roaring party.

Don't lite a match in school.

Okay, Missy. I've had enough training with the bomber.

You up for getting this going tomorrow?

Ensure your buddy has lunch ready for the entire school.

We'll do the bomber run around two o-clock the next day. This way lunch will have plenty of time to work it's way through everyone, and we'll get some laughs out of it.

I suspect school might be cut early due everyone turning into unlit torches.

The next day you can pull the alarm. Just make sure you stand in front of me near the bushes at the front of the school. Everyone will be fully confused from the alarm. Trying to get organized, and most likely still frazzled from the previous day.

This will be an awesome two days.


by Missy~Feeling baked potatoish (149)



We can leave a trail of jelly beans from the door to the plane and pour out a bag in the floorboard. Then when he climbs in to enjoy his snack, we'll sneak over and close the top, and off he'll go.

Do you hear something? Is that a crunching sound coming from the coat closet?

*While Imagine is talking about Winnie, Missy puts a finger to her lips and points at the closet door. She waves for him to continue talking about Winnie and George as she approaches it. After hearing a mysterious crunching sound coming from that direction, she'd had the feeling it was George munching on jelly beans and taking notes. When she jerked the door open, her jaw drops as she realizes that she's just caught Winnie and George in full PI gear with a glass to their ears.*

Look what I found, Imagine. What do you think we should do with these two little spies? *Smirk*

Not so fast there, Ms. Winnie Kay. Now that you know the plans, I'm afraid you'll have to be silenced before you have a chance to squeal on us. *Smirk*

*Missy grabs a rope that just happens to be hanging on a hook on the wall and proceeds to tie up George and stuffs an old rag in his mouth.*

If you want to see George again, you'd better keep mum about our plans. Don't worry, if all goes according to our plans for tomorrow, George will be returned to you after his flying lesson. Wahahahahahaha!

by ImagineTryingToLearnToBeSingle (67)



I was thinking of straps to hold George in place, and a canopy. The straps would protect him from any accident, and the canopy will allow him to have a great view.

I think the jelly bean trail would be fantastic. I doubt he's seen a plane before, not up close anyway. Getting him inside would be no problem. He'd follow us there willingly so long we have jelly beans.

I don't want to terrify him by suddenly appearing, and locking him inside for the ride of his life.

Oh but he'll get a ride. But at least he won't feel threatened by us. I hope. I just want to humble him a bit. I like George, he's cantankerous. But he needs to be tamed a bit now.

That crunching sound? I must be a bit deaf, or you've got excellent hearing. Let's see if we can find a mole.

"Winnie, I'm shocked."

I never suspected you'd be such a sort.

Imagine is hurt. He was won over by Winnie's innocent appeal.

George on the other hand, was a different sensation. Imagine wasn't surprised.

Imagine reaches in and yanks the notepad from George, and begins glancing over it.

Weeds. Dandelions. grass. Red jelly beans. Green jelly beans. Pink jelly beans. Black jelly beans. Yellow jelly beans.

Eggs, farting, airplane in the sky, another airplane, jelly beans.

The gopher's eyes were bugeyed, like he'd seen his last jelly bean.

"Winnie, what are you two doing in this closet?"

Imagine glances at Winnie's glass and notices it's cracked. He take it in his hand and places it against the door.

"Missy, say something." While Imagine's ear presses against the glass.

Imagine hears garbled noise through the glass, although his other ear picked her up fine.

"What do we do now?" Missy's voice barked.

"Nothing. She wasn't able to hear anything through this cracked glass.

Imagine hands Missy the notebook George was taking notes on.

His thoughts are pretty narrow, Missy. He can pick up a few words, but can't grasp meaning. If you look at the beginning his thoughts were consumed with searching for food and jelly beans.
Once he heard us talking, he heard bits and pieces while his focus was halfway to his stomach.
Winnie has nothing, and George is half attentive. Right now his only concern is another jelly bean. Look at him, his eyes tell you his world is crumbling.

We can let them go."

"Before you speak, Missy." Imagine presses his finger against his lips. "Ignorance is bliss, and this one is our blessing."

Imagine.

Whoa...Wait a minute...Who said anything about calling me Frank? *Laugh*

You're very welcome, Imagine. I'm a pretty good listener, and I try to help when I can. It's always good to have someone there when you feel like your world is crumbling at your feet.

I don't blame you for having questions about what you're hearing, and wondering if she's telling you the truth or if someone else is. After 15 years, I'm sure you know her moods, expressions, and reactions, so that my be your key to figuring out the truth. Some people like to cause trouble just for the sake of doing it, so it's good that you're taking that into consideration.

If you're both willing to try to work it out, you may want to suggest a marriage counselor, or if you're of a very religious nature, your pastor or whatever may be able to help you both get through this and past all that's happened. I'm glad you're both still able to talk and try to be understanding about what let up to it. I do hope that you can work it out and continue to be as happy as you once were.

I'm sure there may be some things that she might try to keep from you, and although you feel you need to know everything right now, just remember that she does love you still and, she may feel that what you know is hurting you bad enough, so she wants to try to spare you any more pain than you're already going through right now. Try to be patient, and when you're both in a place where it's easier to deal with, you can revisit the conversation if you feel it's really that important that you know. Just remember that you'll never be able to forget it, and it may cause more problems than it's worth. It may be better to let sleeping dogs lie. I think you both have enough on your plates.


As long as you're able to still find some joy through all the pain, I believe you'll be okay. You sound like you have a lot of strength, so I know you'll be all right. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right?

Yes, yes, you can let us both go, Mr. Imagine. We didn't see anything. We didn't hear anything. That note book you confiscated from George is just... just ideas for a new short story he is working on.

[George nods. His cries are muffled by the gag in his mouth.]

Imagine hears Winnie's plea. Her words plow through his heart. He turns toward George when Winnie shoved the gag in his mouth.

Despite his crying inner core urging him to listen, he turns to Missy.

"What do you think, Missy." Imagine sensed something odd with Winnie's plea, and gagging her little gopher.

Imagine.

*Missy glances at Winnie and notices the 'shut your furry little mouth look' that flashes in her eyes before she shoots an innocent grin toward Missy and Imagine. Missy raises an eyebrow in question at Imagine, wondering if he noticed it too.*

I don't think we should trust her, Imagine. Those last words are too much like our plans to be just a story idea, and the handwriting is neater than the first list. Is that a smudge of ink on Winnie's finger? We'd better keep a hold on George until it's over. I'm sure he'll not mind being tied up if we give him lots of jelly beans to eat while he waits. After the look Winnie gave him a moment ago, I'm more than a little afraid to send him back to Comma Sense with her right now. Who knows what she'll do to punish him for trying to tell us the truth.

"I agree, Missy" Imagine felt his suspicion of Winnie's comments confirmed.

Imagine whispers to Missy's ear "Winnie doesn't know anything of importance, but by keeping George she won't be able to learn anything from him.

Imagine turns to face Winnie.

"You can go Winnie. But we're going to hold onto George for a while." Her eyes grew wide. "Winnie, don't tell anyone we're holding George, and nothing will happen."

Winnie hesitantly lifts herself, and swaggered momentarily. She soon found her footing and left the room.

Keeping her promise, Missy pulled a handful of jelly beans from her pocket.

Imagine pulled the gag free.

George greedily lipped several jelly beans from Missy's hand as she held it to him while he munched on a mouthful.

Imagine.

Upon Winnie leaving, and George munches greedily from Missy's hand Imagine eyes a loose paper on the closet floor.

He discovers Winnie did indeed have knowledge of his and Missy's plan. Her hand written notes clearly identified him and Missy as conspirators to cause sabotage at the school

Imagine felt sick to his stomach.

He handed the paper to Missy while he eyed her with disbelief.

Missy takes the piece of paper from Imagine and rips it into confetti before shoving it into her pocket.

"Well, Imagine, all we can hope is that Winnie cares enough about George that she'll not try to call our bluff. I'd hate to be forced to do harm to the little guy."

I think she realizes I'm capable of some interesting things. I'd hate to mess the little guy up, but our hand is forced. I wished now that I had taken a harder stance with her.

Imagine glances over at the bowl of Limburger cheese and goats milk mix. "I may just smear some under his nose if she forces me to."

Oh, no, Imagine! *Shock* We can't do that to poor George. He can't be held responsible for what Winnie does. He was just an innocent pawn in her scheme. We'll just take your concoction out and let it brew in the sun until we can be sure she'll behave. I have a feeling we've not heard the last from her, and the gooey mess might be better suited for her desk drawer. *Smirk*

In the meantime, I think we need to find a safe place where she can't get ahold of him.

Imagine's soul burned. He'd realized he had been mocked. His heart filled with rage. Giving Missy a cold eye he departed with his goo in hand.

Imagine sliped outside. Studying the parking lot he located Winnie's 2012 Ford Taurus. She parked it near the corner of the building, no windows were located to view her vehicle.

He quickly slipped beneath the front of her car. Opened the jar.

Oh god this stuff will kill a maggot

Imagine retrieved a spoon from his hip pocket. Scooping the wrenching mess from the jar he begins dabbing it onto various parts of her car's underneath. Joints where grease lays. Steering gear box. He painted the oil pan and belly of the transmission as both would become hot as the engine powered the car down the road.

He then began smearing it on the exhaust manifold where he had access, and then he spied a small hole where the starter would engage the flywheel when the ignition turned on. Imagine pushed spoonfulls of the putrid mix into the hole.

Although the outside temperature was getting very warm, it wouldn't be hot enough underneath the vehicle to cook it. Winnie must drive for a bit and the physical evidence can burn away. But the damage would be done. There'd be no way to prove this was his concoction which created this disaster. The car would be ruined. No one would buy it. This stuff will last for months.

Imagine re-entered the school with an empty jar in hand, tossing it into a trash can ready for the dumpster. He wasted little time looking like the model student, and hauled the waste can through the back door leading to the dumpster. Soon enough, he was back in school with Missy giving him a nervous eye.

Imagine.

Oh dear . . . Kidnapping no less! As the administrator I gotta quit reading this. I simply cannot condone such behavior from our staff and students.

On the other hand, perhaps it's time to start a fund for a giant delivery of air freshener and a therapist to help wean George from his jelly bean addiction.

But you never heard that from me. . . (Ms. Katz puts on her blinders and stuffs cotton in her ears while giggling over her students' harrowing exploits.)

Later! *Cat2*

Imagine walked through the halls with Missy who still hadn't questioned him of how he dealt with his anger.

Imagine's eyes captured Ms. Katz in her office. She had donned a pink eye blinder, and had cotton stuffed into her ears.

"Did you see that?" Imagine chucked.

Imagine sat in class studying diligently through adjectives and adverbs.


He glanced upwards to see Ms. Katz preparing to mark some new material on the chalkboard with her pink blinder pulled up over her brow.

He gave little thought of Winnie as the clock was nearing three o-clock. The day was near its end. Soon enough she'd be driving down the road while his concoction would cook away beneath her car, steadily stirring the brew as its aroma thickened throughout her vehicle.

He quickly closed his books as the bell rang.

Winnie struggles to concentrate in her Comma Sense class today. She is worried about George who is being held ransom for her silence of Imagine and Missy's plans to sabotage the Academy. Suddenly, Missy knocks on the door.

"I need to borrow your car to go get some lunch. Mine is low on gas," she says with a smirk, knowing Winnie cannot refuse her request.

Winnie reluctantly gives Missy her car keys. She knows if she refuses to give up her beloved car, poor ole George would be in grave danger.

"Do I have a choice?" Winnie asks.

"No," laughs Missy.

"When will you and that despicable Imagine complete your dastardly plans so I can have George back? Is he okay? Does he have plenty of jelly beans? Have you hurt him?"

Winnie's questions go unanswered as Missy prances down the hall toward the parking lot.

Imagine sat at his desk, briefly gazing through the window.

He eyes Winnie's car backing out, and pull forward as it pulled away.

"Oh man, revenge is best served hot. And once that engine gets hot, dinner's served." Imagine coldly whispers to himself.

Mother nature called and Imagine was compelled to use the facilities.

Leaving the room, he passed Winnies class and there she sat. Appearing filled with concern.

What in God's name is she still doing here?

Imagine's heart raced. His body chilled along his spine. He dared not ask her anything. Who is driving her car?

Imagine.

After driving away in Winnie's car to get a supply of jelly beans for George, she began to smell a rank odor seeping into the car. She tried rolling down the windows in order to clear the disgusting smell, but it only continued to get worse.

Her eyes burned and watered as her stomach churned from the fumes as she pulled into the store's parking lot. She searched frantically for the door handle to keep from puking in Winnie's car. Before she could pull the handle, she spewed all over the interior, adding another smelly odor to the car.

She managed to pull herself out and release the remainder of her undigested lunch in the parking lot. Once outside the car, the smell began to subside enough that she was able to think about what must have happened. She got down on her knees to check under the car for signs of Imagine's gooey mess. Green and brown smears covered the heated parts of the engine, and it left no doubt that this had been the reason he'd left with the jar and returned with it empty.

She smacked her forehead for not realizing what he'd done, and being so stupid as to borrow Winnie's car.

She entered the store and headed to the bathroom to splash some cool water on her face and pull herself together before she headed to the candy aisle. As she moved past the various types of sweets, she tried to figure out a way to get Winnie's car back to the Academy without having to drive it herself.

After paying for the case of jelly beans, she pulled out her cell phone and called Imagine and a tow truck.

Imagine's cell phone vibrated in his pocket. He pulled it free and discovered Missy was calling him. A knot was forming in his gut.

"Yes" Keeping his voice down with hopes of not disturbing the classroom. "What's up?"

"You smeared the rancid contents of that jar underneath Winnie's car" Her voice paused momentarily "didn't you."

Imagine's head filled with disgusted concern. "Yes I did. Let me have one guess. You're the one who drove off with Winnie's car."

"Oh sure it was me, Imagine" Her voice choked from sputum "I vomited in her car and all over the parking lot at this grocery story."

Imagine tried to reason why Missy would take Winnie's car. But he realized she had no idea what he'd done.

"Are you able to get the car back here?"

"Are you insane" Her voice burst with emotional flare "I can't get near that thing, and now I've got vomit all over her seats, steering wheel, dash, console and the floorboard. You have to get it towed back there" Her words broke as she obviously was still dealing with the effects of his concoction.

Imagine knew he couldn't call AAA or any other towing service. His presence would be required. He had one option and this would cost him plenty.

"I'll have help to you soon, Missy. I want you to put the keys in the ignition and leave them there, I have a plan to keep us out of hot water. I'll call you as soon as everything's arranged. Imagine hung up and began formulating a plan.

Imagine speed dialed his buddy, Pete.

"What's up, Imagine?" Pete sounded busy as his voice sputtered lightly.

"I've got a situation, and I need you, and Tim to help me out. I'm owing you big on this one, Pete."

Imagine explained the vehicle situation to Pete, and how it would appear at this time.

"I need that car back to the school, Pete" Imagine heard Pete begin to rant but Imagine cut him off " look here buddy. We've been through a few things together. We've had some great laughs, and some bad moments. Trust me, we'll laugh like hell when this is over."

"What's the plan, Imagine" while Pete's voice definitely sounded regretful.

"You and Tim hook up, and you're going to meet a pretty brunette standing near the ice box at the grocery store. Take Tim's Corsica, I doubt anyone would place it with it being such a common design."

"I need you, Pete to drive the car Missy points out to you back to school for us" Once again Imagine had to cut Pete off "Listen buddy, this'll be worth it. I'm going to pay you five hundred dollars tomorrow if you can do this" Pete was all quiet.

"Pete, you still have those sixteen inch mudders in your garage, right?"

"Yep."

"Good, switch out the tires on the car and run it through the swamp once or twice. Really have some fun with it. Then just park it somewhere nearby."

"Then have Missy call the police for a stolen car once Tim takes you and Missy back to the grocery store. They don't have external cameras so there's no placing you guys together in this. You and Tim stand by with Missy while she calls the police for a stolen car. You two will be with her for moral support."

"Once the cops finish with the paper work bring Missy back to school and it's all on Winnie from that point on. They'll find the car trashed with swamp water, mud and what'ever else you can get stuck to the car. Oh buy the way, try to break a piece of the extension to give good reason for it being parked out there. If you have to, leave it where it breaks down and walk away, buddy."

"Alright Imagine, but this won't be five hundred dollars. You give me three payments of five hundred, and the deal is done. It's bad enough I'm gon'na have to put a mask on to even attempt to enter that car. I'm too familiar with that garbage you concocted. Then I'll have to sit amid Missy's vomit while I'm bouncing all around in the swamp beating the crap out of that car."

"Well, if you're going to wear a mask, make sure you bring with you some spray to keep it fresh."

"Yeah, I've already thought of that. You're gon'na have one hot teacher on your hands when this is all over, you know."

"Yeah, and we haven't even flown the bomber yet."

"Oh god, Imagine. I'd give anything to see that teacher's face when the cops inform her where her car would be, and she finally sees it."

"Yep, that would be priceless. Okay, Pete. I'm getting ready to call Missy back and let her know you're coming."

"Will do, buddy. Fifteen hundred dollars is what this will cost you, Imagine."

"It's all good, Pete. You and Tim get going."

Imagine disconnected from Pete, and Called Missy informing her of the plan.

Imagine decided to take a break from class, and check on George who he left in the closet tied up.

Imagine opened the door with a couple jelly beans in hand.

George was gone.

Only thing on the floor was chewed rope, and sprinkles of jelly beans.

Imagine knew exactly where to find George. He bolted to Winnie's classroom.

There was George. Sitting on Winnie's desk. M-60 machine gun in both hands and his eyes pierced Imagine like death on a rolling pin.

Winnie glared at Imagine with equal intent.

But he beat her to her words.

"Winnie, this ain't over he whispered to her ear. You'd better think long and hard before you even think of going to Ms. Katz. Anything can still happen, and a lot more on that too."

Imagine turned away leaving Winnie, and George with this thought..

Imagine.
