The school cafeteria is crowded as always during the lunch period. Groups of friends gather together at the same table. These groups usually consist of mostly the same gender yet varied species.
DJ is sitting with her group at a table. Starlight is in the group, sitting across the table from DJ. Another starfox girl, Kelly is sitting next to DJ. Across from her, next to Starlight, is a husky mixed dog girl named Rambite.
Unlike the other anthros, Rambite walks on all fours. Despite this, she can still use her front paws to accomplish tasks, though probably not as well as the other anthros who have thumbs. Her fur is mostly white and she has red hair. Her tail curls up almost the exact way that huskies do. Her pointed ears are flopped down similar to a lop bunny`s ears.
Even though Starlight and Kelly are both starfoxes, there are some differences between them. Kelly is taller and her ears are larger than Starlight`s, much larger. Starlight`s ears only have black tips but Kelly`s are completely black. Kelly`s muzzle also seems to be a bit shorter than Starlight`s muzzle.
Like usual during lunch time, DJ is just having a carton of milk. Kelly turns to DJ,"You really should eat more, you`re so skinny!"
"I just don`t feel that hungry."
Starlight finishes off her ham sandwich,"Boys don`t like rails for girlfriends."
DJ looks at Starlight offly,"Boys? Starlight, I have no interest to have a relationship."
"Sure, you say that now..."
Kelly leans her elbow on the table with her head in her hand,"Just like the rest of us, you`ll change your mind."
DJ sets her milk carton down,"Well, anyways-"
Starlight quickly interrupts DJ,"Did you see that new guy??"
Kelly looks at Starlight and sighs,"What new guy this time, Starlight?"
"He`s such darkly coloured! It`s horrible!"
DJ looks at Starlight,"You have a problem with his fur colour?"
"A guy like that is just so...so..."
Rambite rolls her eyes, finally joining the conversation,"So dark?"
"Yeah! Now! If you take Anime-"
Everyone at the table, except for Starlight, leap up to the feet and yell in unism,"Don`t start!"
Starlight looks innocently at everyone,"What? What`d I do?"
Kelly twists her ear to the side,"Don`t start your obsessive speech on him, we are sick of hearing it."
"But he`s so sexy!"
DJ turns away from Starlight,"Starlight, just drop it."
DJ shifts her eyes to the side. She puts her elbow on the table and rests her head in her hand. Surely there would be something more interesting to look at instead of watching Starlight chomp down on her food. It doesn`t take long before the new student, Landon, comes into DJ`s view. She lifts her head up as she takes notice of his presence. He seems to be scanning the cafeteria for a place to sit.
His presence doesn`t go unnoticed by Starlight either,"Speak of the devil..."
DJ waves to Landon,"Hey, Landon! You can sit with us!"
"DJ! Are you calling him over here?!"
DJ looks to Starlight,"Why not? How bad of a person can he be?"
Landon sits down next to Kelly and plops his messenger bag on the table in front of him. As he seats himself, Kelly begins to introduce everyone to Landon,"Hi, Landon. My name is Kelly. This is Rambite and that, over there, is Starlight."
Starlight protests the tone Kelly used when introducing her,"Hey!"
Landon gives a small, single wave to everyone. Kelly continues to eat her her sandwich,"I`m not sure where Cloud and Scorch are, they should`ve been here by now."
Rambite looks over to the lunch line,"That lunch line is trecherous. The both probably got unlucky with the traffic in it."
"Yeah, you`re probably right."
Since one of the trash cans in the cafeteria is right by their table, Rambite just tosses her trash from her seat right into the trashcan. She raises her front legs victoriously,"Whoo! Another ten points!"
Landon has brought his own lunch, favouring his own cooking over the food the school provides. He starts off eating the hamburger.
Wanting to make conversation and have Landon involved with the group, DJ leans over the table to look around Kelly and says to him,"You cook your own food?"
He has his mouth full of food so Landon just looks back to DJ and nods his head. Rambite speaks up,"Aw man, I wish I could cook."
DJ nods,"Me, too."
"Me, three!" says a firefox sitting down next to Rambite. He sets down a tray that has a pizza on it that the school has made. The grease is dripping off the pizza. A soda is set down next to the tray. The firefox himself has red fur which is the normal colour for this species of fox. Just like other firefoxes, this one is a fire elemental. He seems to enjoy the biker type clothing with his own twist added in. The jacket he wears has the sleeves rolled up to his elbows. A set of dark sunglasses is sitting on top of his head. His black hair is long and pulled back into the typical guy`s style of the ponytail.
He picks up the pizza with his fingerless gloved-hands and takes a large bite out of the pizza. He`s obviously hungry. As he chews on the greasy piece of pizza, he takes notice of Landon`s presence. He begins to speak with his mouth full,"Oh! Hey. I`m Scorch."
He offers out his hand for a handshake but now his hand has grease on it from the pizza. Landon can`t help but look at Scorch`s greasy hand while responding,"Landon."
There`s a short pause before Scorch realizes why Landon isn`t shaking hands with him,"Oh! Sorry about that."
Scorch retracts his hand and leans over behind Rambite and wipes his hand on Starlight. Starlight immediately jumps out of her seat with a scream,"EW!!"
Scorch turns back to his meal with a chuckle. Everyone else at the table begin to laugh. Starlight marches to Scorch and swats the back of his head,"Jerk!"
Starlight grabs a napkin from the table and begins to wipe herself where Scorch had wiped his hand on her. She mumbles to herself as she works on this and returns to her seat.
Once the laughter dies down, a sky blue coloured wolf sits down next to Landon. His tray of food is set on the table in front of him. His clothing seems to be a cross somewhere between goth and biker. He looks at Landon and says,"Who`s the new guy?"
Landon turns to the wolf and answers,"Landon."
As Cloud turns to his food to eat, Kelly looks at everyone,"What say we get together after school and hang out at the mall?"
Rambite looks at Kelly,"That sounds like fun."
Starlight smiles widely,"Ohhh that mall! I love to go shopping!"
Kelly looks at DJ,"And we can get the pizza that`s there for our sort of dinner."
DJ smiles,"Mmm, pizza...."
Scorch holds up his half-eaten pizza,"Pizza that isn`t half-grease, half everything else."
Landon picks up a napkin,"There is a trick for that."
Landon takes the pizza from Scorch and begin to pat down the top of the pizza with the napkin. The napkin picks up the grease off the pizza. Soon, the pizza is no longer dripping with the grease. Landon passes the pizza back to Scorch. Scorch is delighted,"Whoa, dude, nifty little trick. I`ll have to start doing that with my pizzas in the future."
Scorch continues eating pizza as Landon tosses the greasy napkin in the trash. Cloud folds his arms,"Huh, yeah, that is neat."
DJ looks at Landon,"Would you like to join us to the mall after school today, Landon?"
Landon nods his head,"Sure, why not?"
Rambite looks at Kelly,"Let`s not forget the others."
Landon looks at Rambite,"Others?"
Scorch is chewing on a piece of pizza,"Yeah, the other people to our group. A shame they had a different lunch period from us."
Starlight leans over the table,"So which shop do we hit first?"
DJ finishes off her milk and tosses the empty container into the trashcan,"Well, I want to go to the video game store. Maybe the book store, too."
Landon turns his head to look at DJ. Scorch raises his fist,"Yeah! Game store for me, too!"
Cloud finishes off his sandwhich,"Me, too. I`m going to the game store."
Starlight clasps her hands together,"We should go to their clothes shop. I saw this cute skirt there the other day and I just have to get it!"
DJ digs her hand into a pocket in her pants,"I`ll take care of the food bill there, guys."
Cloud looks at DJ,"Are you sure, DJ? I mean, there`s a lot of us. maybe I should pay for it?"
DJ pulls out what looks to be like a credit card,"It`s all right, Cloud, I got it."
"At least let me pay half."
"Cloud. It`s fine."
Kelly looks at the card in DJ`s hand,"That`s Anime`s, isn`t it?"
DJ nods,"Yep. He gave it to me to pay for anything I need. He won`t permit me to buy a highway with it, but something like food for us while we`re out, he won`t mind."
Starlight tilts her head to the side, looking at the card,"What is that, anyway? It`s not a credit card, is it?"
DJ puts the card back in her pocket,"It`s not a credit card. The company Anime works for gives him these cards. They`re kind of like gift cards. That`s how they pay him. They add money to the cards` accounts and the cards pay for whatever. Accepted everywhere."
"Wow, I want one of those."
Rambite clears her throat,"So where should we meet this time?"
Kelly has a quick answer for her,"Why not the big tree in front of the school?"
Starlight clasps her hands together,"Big tree it is!"
Scorch speaks up,"Gym`s my last class so uh, you might have to wait a bit for me."
Kelly waves her hand at Scorch,"Don`t worry, we won`t take off without you."
Starlight looks at DJ,"So, DJ, are you ready for the math test next class?"
DJ`s look changes to a dreaded one,"Oh no! I`ve completely forgot about it!"
The bell rings. Lunch period is over and it is time for the students to move on to their next class. Everyone gathers up their trash and toss it in the trashcans. With the trash taken care of, everyone gathers up their bags. Starlight puts on her backpack,"Well, I guess there isn`t much time left for you to prepare for it now."
DJ sighs as she puts on her messenger bag,"No, I guess not."
Though most of the group are off to different directions separately, DJ and Starlight do have their math class together so they walk down the halls together. The math department is upstairs so the two girls find a flight of stairs and ascend them.
DJ and Starlight usually sit side by side in the math class so this is how they will sit again today. Not very long after they sit does the bell ring. Once the bell rings, the teacher immediately takes over the class and hands out the test papers.
Dread falls over DJ again. She had hoped that she could squeeze in a little time to prepare for the test before the bell but time is not on her side for this class. She takes a deep breath and begins the test. She will just have to do the best she can and hope she will get at least a passing grade.
She takes a quick look at Starlight. Starlight has a smile on her face. Of course, math is Starlight`s best class. She will have no trouble with this test, she never has in the past. DJ hangs her head for a moment and makes a wish about being as good in math as Starlight. Then DJ lifts her head back up and continues with the test.
