Frightening Field Trip

I'd really been looking forward to our class trip. I know I'd gone there before, but I can't get enough of the Center City Science Museum. I could tell that the rest of the kids were ready, too. Everyone was full of energy when we walked into class. That's when I saw him. "Oh no," I groaned, "not Mr. Peggler."

"Phooey," Dale said. He curled his nose and sniffed like he'd smelled something bad.

You'd think a classy private school like Wolfson Academy could afford to hire good substitutes. And, to be honest, I guess I'd have to say that most of the time they did. But Mr. Peggler was terrible. He thought he was great with kids, but he had no idea what we really liked. This is going to ruin the trip, I thought. I'd been looking forward to going to the museum with Ms. Howell. She was such a great teacher.

"Listen up," Mr. Peggler said. "Your teacher is out today. But don't worry, we're still going on the class trip. Isn't that wonderful?" There was silence in the room. "Well," Mr. Peggler said, "I'm looking forward to it. So, let's go get on that bus and have a great time."

We got on the bus. I took a nap. Morning isn't my best part of the day. When we reached the museum, Mr. Peggler led us into the lobby.

"We always go to the Hall of Mammals," I told him. "That's our favorite place." I loved seeing the bunnies and the squirrels and the other small creatures.

"Well," he said, looking around at the signs on the wall, "it's no good to get into a rut. You need to experience new things. Otherwise you'll all become creatures of habit. Ah, this is perfect," he said, pointing to one of the signs. "There's a show about to start in the planetarium."

I shook my head. "I don't think that's such a good idea."

"It's a wonderful idea," he said.

Then I saw the name of the show and a chill ran across my scalp. "I really don't think it's a good idea at all."

"What's wrong, afraid of the dark?" Mr. Peggler asked.

"Hardly," I said.

Before I could argue any further, he was leading everyone into the planetarium. We took our seats. The room grew dark. Mr. Peggler was sitting right next to me. "See," he said as the stars appeared projected on the ceiling. "This is wonderful. You should just relax and enjoy the show."

"Welcome to the planetarium," the taped voice of the announcer said over the loudspeaker.

"I really think we should leave," I told Mr. Peggler. He shushed me. Okay, I thought. That's it. I'd tried. There was nothing more I could do except sit and listen to the announcer.

"Our show is called Phases of the Moon. If you look toward the eastern horizon, you'll see a spectacular full moon rising." It was a fake, of course. I wasn't really sure if it would work. But it certainly did the trick. By the time the whole moon was visible over the horizon, we'd all changed. I'd tried to tell Mr. Peggler it was a bad idea taking us to the planetarium. Maybe I should have told him our secret. But what use is a secret if it gets out? And even if I'd told him we were all werewolves, he'd never have believed me. But it's true. When the full moon rises, we turn into wolves. All of us. I don't mean those pretty wolves you see in nature shows on TV -- I mean snarling, raging, howling monsters.

The school should have known better than to hire him. I guess good substitutes are hard to find. Of course, by the time we get through with Mr. Peggler, he's going to be pretty hard to find, too.

Kawaii Chan p.o.v Kawaii Chan knocked on the door in the tune of an anime series theme song she watched. the door opened and standing infront of her was Zane, wearing a black sweater and some grey tack suit pants, on the other hand, kawaii Chan was wearing a long pink shirt that only just went past her waist and a pair of cute jeans that she bought yesterday. There had been a long silence " hi Zane kun!" Zane smiled and let her inside, she walked in, stumbling over the rug in her high heels, Zane ran over "you alright kawaii Chan?" Kawaii Chan nodded, and Zane helped her up, yet another long silence as they just looked at each other, holding hands, smiling, then garroth ruined it " isn't that adorable!" Garroth said " garroth! Keep it down, laurance doesn't know about this!" " But he's on a shopping trip, said he'd be out for 2 hours" kawaii Chan gestured for garroth to leave, and he begrudgingly did, walking off sighing Zane p.o.v Zane was glad garroth left, it was just kawaii Chan and him, alone. He turned on Netflix and put on an anime kawaii Chan loved, she flinched " owie! Something bit me!" Zane got off the couch and inspected the floor, alittle trail of ants were scurrying in a line " that's why it smelt like orange juice! Great!" Kawaii Chan frowned " it's okay Zane kun, kawaii Chan will get over it, it was only an ant" Zane sighed " yeh okay, you're right" kawaii Chan pecked him on the cheek and they smiled, then kawaii Chan tackling him onto the floor as she tickled him until he was laughing like a child " kawaii Chan! You know I'm ticklish! Stop!" Kawaii Chan smirked " if you want kawaii Chan to stop then why are you laughing?"  Zane p.o.v After she stopped tickling, they shared a long kiss, when laurance came through the door with party stuff and a few friends to help set up, there was laurance, of course, ugh, gene, Dante, aphmau and Aaron, all of them paused in confusion, except aphmau who tried rush everyone out, but gene didn't and walked straight in, while aphmau got the rest out she went in, trying to drag gene out, Zane had stopped the kiss a little while ago, blushing light pink as gene watched kawaii Chan intently, seeing what she would do, Zane stood up and hissed at gene " get out of my house!" Gene smirked walking toward kawaii Chan grabbed by her arm and pulling her to her feet "let go of kawaii Chan!" Kawaii Chan yelled, as gene smirked again and pulled her into a kiss, kawaii Chan wasn't actually trying to move at all, she just let gene kiss her, Zane clenched his fist and walked up to gene, removing kawaii Chan from him and punching him in the chin, he sighed " you always were weak! Tsk tsk Zane, tsk tsk" gene swung a punch at Zane's forehead and dodged a bit too slow, getting hit, aphmau rushed kawaii Chan outside and closed the door behind them both, while inside they continued to brawl, gene kicked Zane in the leg, making him fall, gene continued to beat him up, until garroth came in and shouted in a dark, scary tone " get off my baby brother or I'll rip you to shreds" gene stood up and laughed as Zane lay on the ground, crying in pain once again " what you gonna do bout it?" Garoth walked up to gene and kicked him in his hip, them smashed his fist into his head, gene scream and ran out the back door, while garroth helped Zane up The end ( sorry for weird ending, kawaii Chan and Zane ARE still dating tho ^____^)

Global warming will raise the ocean and bodies of waters. The cities will be flooded, and then frozen over. Someone goes outside, they freeze to death. The remaining survivors will die of starvation or freeze to death.

In my opinion, I see four most likely possibilities.  >>  Nuclear War/World Wars. >> The universe practically imploding and the sun burning us into oblivion or even another planet/meteorite slamming into us, destroying us entirely. >> Self-destructive tendencies of our own species, either accidentally or purposefully. >> Trump. Which could be the matchstick to the flame of at least two other things on this list.
