"Remind me why we are doing this again," Eddy grumbled as he walked home from school with Ed and Double D.
"Because we need to study for our big history test tomorrow," answered Double D. "I thought there would be the least amount of distractions at my house."
"Why do I need to study when I can just copy from you?" Eddy joked.
Double D took a deep breath and raised a finger, about ready to scold Eddy, but then Ed stuck his head in between them. "You don't need to copy from Double D," he interrupted. "History is easy. You see the kings let the peasants surf on their fields and the nights were slivery…"
"Not quite, Ed," corrected Double D. "The peasants worked as serfs in the fields and the knights practiced chivalry. I think you are starting to get it, but we have a long way to go. Hence the study session."
"This stuff is bunk. It happened a million years ago. Why should I care?" Eddy said disgustedly as he stuffed his hands in his pockets. They arrived at Double D's front door.
"Could you at least pretend that you care?" asked Double D exasperatedly. He unlocked his door and they went in. Eddy just grinned smugly.
When they got into Double D's room, he pulled his textbook out of his backpack. "Let's go over the kings of England," he announced. "There was Alfred the Great, and Edward the Elder, and…"
"Ooh, was there Double D the Smart and Eddy the Short?" Ed chimed in.
Eddy cast him a dirty look. "What was that supposed to mean?"
"Not quite Ed…" Double D started. "Hey Eddy where is your text book?"
"I dunno," Eddy said as he threw his hands in the air. "I probably left it on the school bus."
"This is going to be a long night," Double D said to himself as he rubbed his temples.
"I need to rest my eyes a bit," Eddy said as he hopped into Double D's bed. "Wake me up when you get to the part where that dude pulls a sword out of a stone."
"Oh, you are not even putting an ounce of effort into this," Double D scolded. "We have a lot of ground to cover and you are just going to take a nap."
"Yeah, exactly," Eddy said as he closed his eyes.
"Eddy, get up we have work to do." Eddy heard Double D's voice trail off but he chose to ignore him.
