Wishing for 15
Introductions at High School
Description: Max is surprised at his new look and begins to freak out when he sees himself in the mirror following his wish to be taken 7 years by accident. His scream wakes up his sister. She wonders who screamed and found out that the scream was in the bathroom. Max hides in his bed under the covers. Emmy sees him go into his room and hide under the covers. However, when Emmy checks on him, she notices that the person she saw was bigger than Max's bed. She finds under the covers Max (who is now Clay from Mario Tennis: Power Tour). Emmy asks Max why he is in her house. He tells her that he is homeless. Emmy said that he would be adopted, but he is asked for his name. Max tried to say his name, but he magically said "Clay Acarius". So until he can find out why he traveled 7 years into the future, he needs to realize why this has happened to him now as "Clay Acarius". Later that morning, he is adopted into the family when his parents wake up from their slumber and Emmy introduces him to them. Clay (actually Max) is shown around the town and finds out that he would be going to the same school as Emmy, which would be Nexus Academy High School (it's a public school). Just as he walks out of the school from registration, he sees Travis, Randy, and Harold. Clay recognizes them as his bullies, but now, they bully kids who were in Max's Grade. Recognizing the kids, he tells the bullies to stop instead of what he wanted to do with the bullies since he is still concerned about what is going on. Emmy tells Clay that she stopped those bullies when they "bullied" her brother "Max". Clay remembers a time when he was bullied. However, he notices quickly that Emmy is shaking him. So he goes home and enjoys the rest of his summer, which include him actually meeting new friends, such as Miguel Santos, Dweezil, and Flit (explanations of some minor characters will be shown in every chapter until we show them all) at the mall, being introduced to Enrique, and looking around at all the changes in his town since he became 15 years old from his wish. When he goes to get some school supplies, he learns that his new friends like to hang out together. So Clay starts hanging out with them. On his first day of school at Nexus Academy, he learns that he would be taking classes with Emmy, Enrique, Alex, and Miguel for his majors and Flit, Skipper, and Dweezil for his minors. He takes the classes in this order: Homeroom, Algebra, Health, English, Lunch, Spanish, Gym, History, and finally Science before being dismissed to go home. He thinks that this year will be a great one, along with his friends, who he hangs out with much more. But he is still concerned about if this is real or not.
Let's explain about some other Major characters in this story (majority of story will be in the future with Max as Clay Acarius). And yes, most of the characters will be from the Mario Tennis Series. Anyway, let's begin.
Miguel Santos (from Maya and Miguel): Max's best friend as Clay Acarius. He hangs out with Clay and his other friends often, as well as being in his major subjects. They both like sports, despite Clay joins the Football Team and Miguel joins the Soccer Team for Nexus Academy at first, but then they both play Basketball and Baseball for the same school. Later on in the story, he and their friends notice Clay spending more time with his girlfriend: Ace. He sees him as his best friend still even then. He also finds out Clay's true identity with Emmy at the same time.
Alex (from Mario Tennis GBC, but resembles his look in Power Tour): One of Max's friends as Clay Acarius. He mainly attends Clay's major subjects and is smart, as well as athletic at the same time. He plays soccer, basketball, and baseball. He finds out Clay's identity near the end of the story.
Flit (from Mario Tennis: Power Tour): One of Max's friends as Clay Acarius. He mainly attends Clay's minor subjects. He is very powerful on the football team, and swift on the basketball and baseball teams. He finds out Clay's identity near the end of the story.
Skipper (from Mario Tennis: Power Tour): One of Max's friends as Clay Acarius. He mainly attends Clay's minor subjects. He is a strong defensive player on the football team, as well as powerful in batting in baseball and strong in wrestling. He finds out Clay's identity near the end of the story.
Dweezil (from Mario Tennis: Power Tour): One of Max's friends as Clay Acarius. He mainly attends Clay's minor subjects. On the football team, he defends powerfully and tackles whenever necessary in a game. He hits baseballs hard and throws them fast in baseball and powerful like Skipper in wresting. He finds out Clay's identity near the story.
That's all of the major characters I like to tell you guys about for now. We better get back to the story and find out what Max has become.
Max was shocked to see himself in the mirror since he was different than what he actually expected (he looks like Clay from Mario Tennis: Power Tour AKA what he looks like at the beginning of the storyline when he is in bed).
He is so freaked out that he screams.
Emmy is awakened by Max's scream.
She is now 15 years old.
"Who was that?", she thought after hearing the scream.
She walked into the hall to find out.
Max hears footsteps from the hallways.
"If I'm seen, then I could be gone!", he thought.
"Maybe it was in the bathroom.", Emmy thought.
She opened the bathroom door and saw Max zoom right into his room.
"Who was that? And why did he got to Max's Room?", Emmy thought.
She walked into Max's room to find who that person was.
Max hid under his covers, despite his size since his feet were seen.
Emmy walked into the room and saw that the human was bigger than the bed.
"Who could that be?", she thought.
Emmy took the covers off the bed and was shocked to see a teenager who looks like he is about 15.
The teenager was actually Max himself!
"Who are you? And why are you here?", Emmy asked him.
Max began to wonder why his sister does not know his identity.
"Come on Max! Think about a good strategy to not reveal my identity! This might be a fake world I am in right now!", he thought.
After a few seconds, Max had an idea.
"I do not have a home. I need one now!", he said.
Emmy thought about what she should say.
Then she decided to tell him what she would do.
"My family will adopt you. But can you please tell me your name?", said Emmy.
"I'm…" said Max but suddenly, something happened when he was about to say his name to his sister.
"Clay Acarius.", he said, like it was magically changed.
"Huh?", he thought after he said that.
"I'll introduce you to the rest of the family when they wake up, Clay. Also, I'm Emmy.", said Emmy.
"Alright Emmy.", said Max.
Emmy went to her room to get dressed.
As Max got dressed, he thought about what he should do.
"As long as I am in this world or time, I must be known as "Clay Acarius".", he thought, now as Clay Acarius.
After he got dressed, Clay (formerly Max) went downstairs and waited for his parents to get up and serve him his breakfast.
But when he saw his television, it was now bigger than it was before (it's now a flat screen).
"WOAH! Things must have changed since I was gone.", Clay thought.
He looked around and saw that it was not the only thing that has changed.
The kitchen had a new oven and other new appliances.
The front door was changed to look much better.
The windows were noticeably in a new type wood and coat of paint.
"My parents must have changed this kitchen very much now.", Clay thought.
So he sat down and started to watch the new TV, where he discovered that many new channels have appeared.
Later That Morning
Clay's parents wake up and are met by Emmy in the hallway.
"Good morning Emmy. You seem very happy today. What could be so exciting?", her father asked.
"I want to introduce you to someone.", Emmy said.
"Someone? Did someone come into our house without permission?", her mother asked.
"Yes, but however, he does not have a home, but he seems to be as old as I am.", Emmy said.
"Bring us to him please.", said Emmy's father.
So the 3 of them went downstairs to see the homeless boy.
Clay noticed that his favorite cartoons were no longer on the air.
"I guess I have to get used to this from now on.", he said.
Footsteps came down the staircase.
"Clay, I'd like to introduce you my parents.", said Emmy.
"Alright then.", he said as he turned off the television.
Emmy's parents saw him as they came down.
"Is this the person?", her father asked.
"Yes. He's Clay Acarius, who claims to be homeless when I first saw him.", said Emmy.
"Well, nice to meet you Clay. We will take care of you very well as long as you are in this family.", said Clay's new father.
"Yeah. I will be your son now!", said Clay.
"Yes, but we need to find you a room.", said his new mother.
"Why not allow him to stay in Max's old room?", Emmy asked.
"That might be a good idea. But we will keep Max in our hearts.", said Emmy's father.
"Am I a new person?", Clay thought.
Suddenly, something popped into the head of Clay's father.
"I think we should adopt him!", he exclaimed.
"We should do that after breakfast.", said Clay's mother.
So the family got breakfast ready, except for Emmy, who got dressed, and Clay, who continued to watch TV.
After the family had breakfast and got dressed, they all went to the father's study to try and adopt Clay.
"We are going on this adoption site right now. I'll search you up, Clay.", said Clay's father.
"OK Dad.", said Clay.
He looked for Clay in the list of kid for adoption.
Surprisingly, "Clay Acarius" was on the list!
"Here we go! When I click your name Clay, we will have to fill out some forms to adopt you.", said Clay's father.
So he clicked on Clay's name and saw the forms.
He filled them out with all his personal information and clicked Enter, but not after telling the agency that founded the site that Clay was with them before adoption.
"There we go! Clay, you are now officially a member of our family now!", said Clay's father.
The entire family was happy.
"You know, maybe I should show you around town.", said Clay's mother.
"Yeah, since I'll have to get used to this new family I'm in to be cared for.", said Clay.
"Since you are with us, why not go to Nexus Academy High School this September for school?", his father asked.
"Nexus Academy High School? What's that?", Clay asked.
"It's the school I'm going to this September. Since you are new to this family, why not register?", Emmy said.
"We could do that on your tour through this town.", said Clay's mother.
"OK then, since I am 15 years old and I have to do this to succeed.", said Clay.
"Your adoption info said that you will be in 9th Grade, not 10th Grade, like your sister Emmy. It also says that your old parents told you to live by yourself from now on. We will make sure we don't let you be like that again.", said his father.
"This new life could be interesting. But still, I better know what is going on right now.", Clay thought.
Clay, Emmy, and their mother went into her car to take a tour of the town.
"These are shops you can go to for your own reasons, but you can also hang around at this park over here.", Clay's mother said as they began to drive through town.
Clay noticed that his town has changed.
The park now looks like a whole new field for enjoyment.
Many stores he saw as a kid were closed.
He now has to get used to the new stores as a teenager.
He also saw a new pool, a new mall, and new restaurants.
"This town is all brand new and I should enjoy it extremely.", he thought.
"Back then, there were many great places here. Now all new ones have replaced them, so we need to get used to each change that happens to this town.", said Clay's mother.
"This means that as old stores we like close down, we must get used to new ones that open.", said Emmy.
"So when my favorite pizza place, for example, closes down, I will have to get used to a new one?", Clay asked.
"I'm afraid so.", said Clay's mother.
"Man, I guess everything changes as time continues. Maybe I should keep that even when I find out what is going on here actually.", Clay thought.
Emmy's cell phone began to ring.
She picked it up and said "Hello?".
It was her friend Enrique.
Enrique was still in town and still goes to the same school Emmy goes too, which meant that he would soon be a friend and classmate of Clay.
"Hey Emmy. I just wanted to know if when you will be at the mall.", he said.
"Hey Enrique. I'm just introducing a new member to our family to our town we live in. His name's Clay Acarius and he will be in our grade this September. He will also be going to our new school: Nexus Academy. What do you think?", said Emmy.
"I want to meet him!", said Enrique.
"We would, but we need to register him into the school first.", said Emmy.
"Oh, that's ok. But make sure I meet him before we go to 9th Grade.", said Enrique.
"Ok Enrique. Bye.", said Emmy.
"Bye Emmy.", said Enrique.
Town Mall Interior
"She needs to register someone known as Clay Acarius.", said Enrique to a group of boys at a table in the mall's food court.
"To our school?", Miguel Santos asked.
"Indeed.", said Enrique.
"A new friend!", Alex, Miguel, Flit, Skipper, and Dweezil exclaimed.
"Yes.", said Enrique.
The 5 of them were acting like they wanted to meet Clay.
Emmy hung up as Clay saw a sign that said "Nexus Academy High School".
"Here we are!", said Clay's mother.
Nexus Academy High School Exterior
When Clay's mother's car was parked in the school's parking lot, she, Emmy, and Clay got out and went inside to register Clay into the school.
As they walked in, Clay thought, "This school is big! Maybe you go to bigger schools when you advance through education. Are there more students here? Or is there not many students in this big place I will go to school?".
Clay walked into the school, thinking about how many students will go to school with him.
Inside Nexus Academy High School
Clay, Emmy, and their mother walked in and followed the arrows on signs, which led to the registration table, called "New Student Registration".
Along the way, they saw the school gym, pool, cafeteria, auditorium, and some classrooms for subjects such as Science and History.
"Does this register students that are not in the school district into the school district? I don't know. I guess I need to register to find out.", Clay thought.
"Hello. Is there a student you would like to register? Your child Emmy has already been registered.", said the person at the table.
"I wanted to register Clay, a new addition to our family.", said Clay's mother.
"Is he the boy with you?", the person at the table asked.
"Yes.", said Clay's mother.
So Clay filled out a form, with some parts filled out by his mother.
After it was filled, it was turned in to the person at the table, who would transfer the data to the student list.
Shortly after they gave the paper to the person at the table, Clay, Emmy, and their mother left.
Nexus Academy High School Exterior
As Clay walked out of the school, he thought, "Is there no recess when you get to high school? I guess when you get closer to graduation, you start to gain stuff, like lockers, and lose stuff, like recess, in school. I better remember that when I actually get to Middle School for real.".
"Clay, you really should get used to the new school you are at. You'll meet new friends and take classes like your sister.", said his mother.
"Yes, and also get to do stuff the older teenagers do these days.", said Emmy.
"I guess so.", said Clay.
When they got to the bottom of the stairs near the entrance to the school, Clay heard a familiar phrase.
He heard "Short-face".
"That phrase! I remember it! Travis, Randy, and Harold used it!", he thought.
Quickly, he looked around for them until he saw them.
Clay saw his bullies, now 7 years older, bullying 2 7th Graders.
"Those kids! They must by my friends!", he thought again.
"Short-faces! Short-faces! You're too short!", said Randy, Travis, and Harold.
"Those bullies were the reason why I'm Clay Acarius! I need to stop them! But just to be safe, I need to be calm and relaxed because I might reveal my identity!", Clay thought.
He walked up to them.
"You'll never be tall as us! You're too short and young!", said the bullies again.
Clay began to run towards them after hearing that.
The bullies and 7th Graders saw him.
"Who just do you think you are, punk?", Randy asked.
"Yeah, these kids are our targets!", said Travis.
"Now get lost before we destroy you!", said Harold.
Clay felt anger and shouted at them "STOP!".
The bullies ran away.
The 7th Graders walked up to Clay, who began to think he knows the 7th Graders.
"Thank you! We owe you one for protecting us.", said one of the 7th Graders.
"I hope they stop soon!", said the other 7th Graders.
"You're welcome.", said Clay.
The 7th Graders ran home, excited.
Clay thought carefully about the kids.
"Tech? Phoen? Why are they not as old as I am? Did the wish only affect me?", he thought.
Emmy saw the whole thing and ran up to Clay.
"You seem to be protective of those 7th Graders. Those bullies bullied my brother Max 7 years ago. Now, he's gone.", she said.
Horrified, Clay thought, "Gone? Am I gone as Max and here as Clay? I need to get to the bottom of this. For now though, I better get through this rest of summer and to high school.".
Suddenly, he remembered a time when he was bullied.
Clay (as Max) was eating his lunch with his friends Tech and Phoen when he saw Travis, Randy, and Harold.
Randy put his food, as well as Max's food into his underwear, threw him into the trashcan, and closed the lid.
Travis and Harold did the same to Tech and Phoen.
Lunch ladies helped the boys out of the trashcans, sent them to the nurse for a change of clothes, and they were each given a new lunch, which made them much happier, since they were sad when they were thrown into the trashcans.
Each of their parents came in and the lunch ladies told them what happened.
Max's mother told him that those bullies would stop one day.
Suddenly, Clay began to shake.
Emmy was shaking him since he daydreamed his flashback.
"Come on Clay! We have some friends I like to introduce to you!", she said.
"Coming!", said Clay.
"Just a few more days of summer left until I go to High School for real. I must find out what is going on during the school year. If those bullies threaten you, Tech or Phoen, I'll stop them and find out what is going on here!", he thought.
Clay ran to his mother's car.
"What happened?", she said.
"Those bullies again.", said Emmy.
"It's too late Emmy. As I said before, he's gone.", said her mother.
"Travis, Randy, and Harold, you three will be surprised when I stop you for good!", Clay thought as he got into the car.
His mother then took him and Emmy to the mall to meet with Enrique.
Town Mall Parking Lot
When they got to the mall, Enrique was in the parking lot, waiting for them.
He was 7 years older as well.
"Hey Enrique!", said Emmy as she got out of the car.
"Enrique! I wonder if he knows.", Clay thought as he got out of the car.
"OK you two, I'll be back in 1 Hour. Have fun!", said their mother, who then drove back to their house.
Enrique saw Clay.
"Who is that, Emmy? Is that Clay?", he asked.
"Yes, and I suppose you must be Enrique, right?", Clay asked.
"Indeed.", said Enrique.
"Hey guys! What are you standing around for? Get in here!", said Miguel, waving his arms from the entrance.
"Coming Miguel!", said Emmy.
"Who's Miguel?", Clay asked.
"One of your new friends! Come on!", said Enrique.
So the three of them ran to enter the mall.
"Miguel's here too! But why does he look like he would be in my grade and not with Tech and Phoen? I hope I find Alex, Flit, Skipper, and Dweezil soon!", Clay thought as he ran to the entrance.
Keep reading this story until the final chapter to see something interesting (it is spoilers, but just wanted to remind you).
Town Mall Interior
Clay, Emmy, and Enrique followed Miguel into the mall.
"Who's that Emmy? Is he Clay Acarius?", Miguel asked.
"Yes. He is.", said Emmy.
"Nice to meet you, Clay. I'm Miguel Santos, a friend of these 2.", said Miguel as he shook hands with Clay.
"Nice to meet you Miguel.", said Clay.
"We better go see the others. They're waiting at the food court.", said Miguel.
So the 4 of them went to the food court.
"Maybe this is what Miguel will look like when we are actually 15 years old. Still, the question about Tech and Phoen remains.", Clay thought.
As he walked, Clay also saw stores, new and old, in the mall.
Some stores were also in grand opening sales and store closing sales.
"So, the stores are closing here too.", said Clay.
"Indeed. I'm still concerned about if these stores are starting to open and close a lot now these days.", said Miguel.
At the food court, Dweezil was drinking a soda from McDonalds (one of the food court stores).
"Man, if only McDonalds had more sodas here, then I would approve it more.", he said.
"Yeah.", said Flit.
"You know, I bet their ultimate rival, Burger King, may be having more progress in profits out there than McDonalds here.", said Skipper, pointing to the Burger King outside the ball, across the street.
"Maybe, but I can't decide which is better. That BK or this McDonalds. I just really like them both.", said Dweezil.
"I wonder why Wendy's is out of this competition.", said Alex.
"Maybe Ronald and the BK are bitter rivals. So bitter that Wendy is not able to stop their dispute of food.", said Dweezil.
As the 4 of them laughed, Alex saw Miguel with Emmy, Enrique, and Clay.
"It looks like Miguel's here with Emmy and Enrique.", he said.
"Is that new kid Clay Acarius? I think he is since I've never seen that kid before and Enrique told us Emmy would come with him.", said Dweezil.
"Sorry for the delay, but we needed to register Clay.", said Emmy.
"Hi, I'm Clay Acarius.", said Clay.
"I'm Dweezil.", said Dweezil as he shook Clay's hand.
"I'm Flit.", said Flit as he shook Clay's hand.
"I'm Skipper.", said Skipper as he shook Clay's hand.
"And I'm Alex.", said Alex as he shook Clay's hand.
"Nice to meet you guys.", said Clay.
"It sure is.", said Alex.
"For your information, these boys will be in our grade and will go to our school.", said Emmy.
"Yep. We're going to Nexus Academy!", said Skipper as he showed his muscles from his arms.
"Whoa! He's strong.", said Clay.
"So am I!", Dweezil exclaimed as he showed his muscles.
"As you might have guessed, they're strong and athletic like us.", said Alex.
"Some do not have big muscles as them, but are powerful.", said Flit.
"I can't believe it! Dweezil, Flit, Skipper, and Alex are in the same grade as Miguel and I! Tech and Phoen are still in 7th Grade, the grade I would be in right now if I would have not made this wish. But still, something is going on here! And I'll find it out with the help of my friends! Well, the friends in my grade though. But still, I'll do it!", Clay thought.
Suddenly, Flit realized something.
"Skipper! We did not get our lunch yet!", he said.
"OMG! You're right! But where should we eat?", Skipper said.
"McDonalds!", said Dweezil.
"Oh yeah, right!", said Skipper and Flit, who rushed to McDonalds.
"As you have seen Clay, I'm considered the leader of these guys.", said Dweezil.
"He likes to have fun as well as lead us to success.", said Miguel.
"I'm just amazed by all this. Can't wait for summer to end and go to Nexus with you guys!", Clay exclaimed.
"Looks like he's hyped up for school already!", said Alex.
The 6 of them laughed. (Flit and Skipper did not hear that, since they were at McDonalds getting their lunch)
"I guess I'll have fun in my adventure through this new life as well.", Clay thought.
Clay's House, First Day of School
Days pass until the morning of Clay's first day of school comes.
His alarm rings again at 5:00.
As he got up, Clay said, "Here we go! First day of High School, here I come! I'm ready to have fun this year!".
He got out of bed fast, as well as get dressed, brush his teeth, and head downstairs to the kitchen for breakfast.
Clay sat down at the table, and waited for his breakfast.
"Morning Clay.", said his family.
Clay had his breakfast and then rushed to the bus stop for his first day of High School.
When he got to the bus stop, he found Enrique.
"Hey Enrique.", he said.
"Hey Clay.", said Enrique.
As Emmy came to them, their bus arrived.
"Here we go. First day of High School!", Clay thought as he got onto the bus.
The bus took them through town and to Nexus Academy.
Nexus Academy Exterior
When their bus arrived at the school, Emmy, Enrique, and Clay got off their bus and met with their friends at the entrance doors.
"So, here we are at High School at last. Better get ready Clay, because as the year progresses, it will get tough, but I know we can get through this, right?", said Miguel.
"Yeah, and also be prepared for those exams, sports, and other tests!", said Dweezil.
"I guess. But I'll be here to take care of them this year with you guys!", said Clay.
"YEAH!", said Flit and Skipper simultaneously.
"I guess we are ready.", said Alex.
Clay looked at his schedule he received in the summer a few days before the first day of school.
"It says here I have to go to room 134 for homeroom. I better use the enclosed map of the school.", he said.
Room 134 was in B Pod, a 9th Grade Pod.
"We know where to go today!", said Miguel.
The doors to the school opened, and the students enter the school.
"I hope I can get through this year and find out what is going on right now!", Clay thought as he went into the school.
Nexus Academy Interior
Clay entered the school, recognizing the interior from his registration day and used the map he has to navigate himself to his homeroom in room 134.
He saw students there and more coming into his classroom as he walked in.
"Wow, this is just like the first day of school, only the school is much bigger now.", he thought.
The teacher then began to give out slips of paper with 3 different numbers on them, as well as a certain #.
"These #'s are the 3 lock numbers and your locker #. Remember them since your stuff will go inside your locker for the entire day you are here at school.", she said.
Clay looked at his slip.
It said Locker #2456 and his combination is 45, 23, and 12.
"Remember students, right, left, right. That's how you unlock your locks. You will also get a gym lock, but you will find that out in your gym class. Now put your stuff in your lockers for the first time this year.", said the homeroom teacher.
So the students went to their lockers and practiced their combinations.
"School must be harder here at High School. You need a lot of books for this thing.", Clay thought as he looked at his locker.
When he was about to try his lock combination, he saw a student unlock his locker in an interesting method.
Clay turned his lock clockwise 3 times, stopped at 45, spun the lock counter-clockwise, stopped at 23 after passing the 45 again, and turning clockwise back to 12, which unlocked his locker.
There, he put his backpack on the rack in there and closed his locker.
"I wonder how Emmy, Enrique, Alex, Dweezil, Flit, Skipper, and Miguel are doing with their locks.", he said as he looked at Alex opening his lock nearby.
Alex was opening his lock for his locker, which was assigned by his homeroom teacher in room 136.
Meanwhile, Emmy and Flit were opening their lockers assigned by their homeroom teacher in room 132.
Dweezil, Skipper, and Miguel were assigned lockers from the teacher in room 133.
As Clay got his books and went back into homeroom, he saw his schedule that his homeroom would be his English class.
Alex's homeroom would be his History classroom.
"I guess we could have similar classes.", he said.
He entered his homeroom and waited for the bell for 1st Period.
The bell rang, and Clay headed for Algebra in room 131.
He met Alex, Miguel, Emmy, and Enrique there.
"Hey Max! I saw your schedule, and I noticed that we 5 are in the same major classes.", said Emmy.
"That's interesting.", said Clay.
The 5 entered the classroom, and were given instructions about the procedures of the class.
After a class filled with introductions, the bell rang, and they were dismissed.
"So Alex's homeroom is my History Room, Miguel's homeroom is my Science Room, my homeroom is my English Room, and my Spanish Room is in another Pod of the school, as well as Health.", said Clay as he looked at his schedule.
The schedule had the classes in this order: Homeroom, Algebra, Health OR Home Ec. OR Art, English, Lunch, Spanish, Gym OR Computer App OR Woodshop, History, and finally Science before dismissal.
Clay walked to his Health quad, where he met with Flit, Skipper, and Dweezil.
"Hey Clay!", they said.
"Hey guys!", said Clay.
They looked at their schedules and noticed that for minor classes, they would be together.
Interested, they walked into their classroom for Health.
The day continued through English, Lunch, and Spanish, which Clay would know some words from his past experience of education.
When he got to gym, he got a lock, which was #345.
His locker was #432 in the locker room.
And his combination was 13, 29, and 48.
Clay put his lock, as well as his clothes for gym in his gym locker.
His History class's first day discussed 3 things about themselves.
Clay said 3 things about his life, which were he knows some Spanish, which will help him in that subject, likes to play sports, which makes him athletic, and that he recently moved to this town by adoption.
In Science, Clay was surprised that it was more of a lab than a classroom.
During class, he learned expectations, like some of the other classes, and when the final bell rang, he was dismissed.
Nexus Academy Exterior
"My first day was awesome! But now I have to do this again and again until this year ends. This will be something I will do if this is for my new life.", Clay thought.
Clay got onto his bus to go home, thinking still about what is going on.
