Chapter Two
Fern woke up to see her alarm clock flashing. Fern groaned and slid it towards her to examine the electronic. The battery fell from the bottom and the clock went dead. Fern sighed and tried to turn on her bedside lamp, but the power was gone. She stumbled out of bed and downstairs. Her mother was at the kitchen table surrounded by candles and paperwork, paperwork that she quickly tried to pile into containers again, blowing out candles to dim the lighting.

The Art of Love

Summary: Rattles has a huge crush on Sue Ellen. They have an art class together that lets him see her every day. But when some horseplay causes him to ruin her painting, he has to find a way to make it up to her. Can Rattles fix the damage? Can they ever be together?

Sue Ellen had her tongue stuck out slightly with concentration. The entire canvas depended on her making careful brush strokes, which meant ignoring the loud class around her. She was in an art class at Elwood City High, and judging by the daily noise and confusion, most of the kids thought the high school was a zoo instead. Sue Ellen did her best to ignore them, but today, the piece had to be perfect to complete her artistic vision.

Suddenly the canvas leaped off the easel and onto the floor, causing her to paint across the entire painting as it nearly fell into her lap. Sue Ellen cried out in horror as the boy responsible appeared in her field of vision.

Through the Glass

Summary: Muffy wins a contest to be on her favorite celebrity’s talk show. She thinks this is a great honor, but she’ll soon discover her opportunity comes with several life lessons as well.

Can also be found here.

Muffy nearly pranced around Lakewood Elementary’s cafeteria as she showed off her winning hat design. She had won a design contest just the evening before, and the entire school now knew exactly who she was and what she’d done. She was only in fourth grade, yet her popularity rivaled every fifth grader in the school, and Muffy didn’t mind one bit. She was thrilled to be so amazing at such a young age, and winning this contest was just one more thing to make her better than everyone else.
