This story is by maddie159 and I. Tell us what you think!
Part 1- The Surprise
“Anne, Anne.” My sister shook me. “Guess what?” She said, holding out a magazine.
“What? Is something wrong?” Anne replied, looking at her watch. It read 6am.
“Check this out: People magazine quotes, “Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp, and Keira Knightley have taken a break from acting to get a teaching degree at the University of New York. They completed their degrees and have now each gotten jobs at Los Angeles High teaching 9th grade!” Elizabeth stated, as her twin sister Anne shot up out of bed.
“Elizabeth, those are rumors.” Anne said, rather doubting what her sister had said.
“You never know!” Elizabeth said, so excited to start her first day as a high-schooler.
“Why would any actor, especially ones that make billions of dollars for each of their movies come to work at a high school with a teacher’s salary?” Anne said, and she couldn’t believe that her sister actually believed in this story.
“I don’t know, Anne.” Elizabeth said, sitting down on her bed. “This could be true.” She said.
“I rather doubt it. Go check our schedules.” Anne said, saying anything to get Elizabeth out of her room.
“Okay,” Elizabeth skipped off to get her block schedule.
When she returned, her sister had gotten up and was brushing her teeth.
“Anne Marie Parker: 1st period: Intermediate Writing, 2nd period: English II, 3rd period: World History and 4th period: Art I.” Elizabeth said.
“Does it have the teacher’s names?” Anne asked, curiously.
“No,” Elizabeth replied, kind of waiting for the excitement of finding out if this rumor were true. “The one time we actually care about our teachers, they don’t put it on the schedules.”
“Girls, it’s almost time to leave!” Their mom shouted up the stairs.
“Okay,” Elizabeth said.
“I suggest you get ready, Anne. We have a big day ahead of us, and we don’t want to be late.” Elizabeth said, coming out of Anne’s bathroom.
Elizabeth and Anne arrived at school a short while later, and Elizabeth hoped that these rumors were true. Anne was just ignoring her sister by now because there was no way that her teachers could be stars from Pirates of the Caribbean. It would have to have been one pretty big coincidence.
The first period bell rang, and Elizabeth dragged Anne to room 42.
“Elizabeth, your getting way over your head. There is no way.” Anne said, opening up the door.
“Look there’s a twenty dollar bill on the floor, Elizabeth.” Anne said, reaching down to get it.
“Anne—you are never going to believe this. Anne! Look!” Elizabeth barley got her words out, as she looked at her very familiar brown haired teacher.
“Wha--?” Anne stopped short, as she found her eyes starring at her new teacher.
“Good morning, girls,” said the familiar voice. “Oh, you found my twenty dollars. Thanks”
“Are you—“ Elizabeth said, not forgetting his familiar voice.
“Are you our—“Anne said, not believing her eyes.
“Teacher?” He finished their words for them.
“Here’s your monnnney...” Anne said, slurring her words handing her new teacher, Orlando Bloom his money.
“I know this is a shocker to you guys, but I am your writing teacher.” Orlando said.
The other girls had the same response when walking through the door, and were just as surprised. One girl almost even fainted.
“Girls, please stand in the middle of the room as we wait for the rest of the girls to come in.” Orlando said.
“You were so right, Elizabeth. I am so glad we got here first, he will be able to remember us more.” Anne said, sitting in the middle of the room.
The late bell rang and Orlando started talking again.
“As you may all know, I am your writing teacher, Mr. Bloom.” Orlando said.
No one was pay attention to what he had said, they were just looking at his face, heck they were looking at his whole body!
“Anne, this is my dream school. I already love it here,” Elizabeth said.
“I think that goes for everyone here, Elizabeth.” Anne said, not taking her eyes off him.
“Okay, now for your assigned seating.” Their teacher said, like he was amazed that all the girls were staring at him.
“Anne Parker?” Orlando said.
“Yes?” Anne said, slurring her words again.
“Right here, next to my desk.” He said.
Anne turned around at her twin sister, and everyone stared her right in her eyes. The one desk that faced him happened to be hers.
She just gave a devilish laugh to the group as she made her way to the front, proudly. Elizabeth had never seen so many people jealous of one lucky girl.
“It’s nice to have you in my class,” Orlando had said, when she had reached her seat.
“Thanks,” Anne smiled back at her sister.
The rest of the seats had been given out, except Elizabeth. She just stood in the middle, waiting to be called on.
“Elizabeth Parker?” He said.
“Yes?” She replied, not being able to wait any longer.
“Is Anne your twin sister?” He said.
“Yes, she is.” Elizabeth said.
“That’s great! I have twin girls in my class.” He said. “Please take the seat right behind your sister so we can get started with our class.” He said, putting down his roll book.
“Isn’t this amazing?” Anne said, while looking at her sister.
“What? That you’re blocking my view of him?” Elizabeth said.
“Oh! Come on, lighten up.” Anne said, turning around laughing.
“Sorry, I’m late,” A new girl walked in but stopped dead in her tracks when she saw her famous teacher.
“It’s alright, just take a seat in the back, Miss Thompson.” Orlando called from the front of the class.
“Sure thing,” Betsy said from the back, sitting down.
“I didn’t know the rumors were true,” Betsy Thompson whispered to a class mate sitting right in front of her.
“I didn’t either!” The girl replied. “This is awesome!” She screamed a bit too loudly.
“Excuse me, but I have a class to teach here.” He said, glaring into her eyes.
The class couldn’t tell if he was joking or not.
Orlando started to laugh so loud, and we were all confused.
“Guys, I was joking.” He said. “Lighten up. I’m not that mean.” He said, holding some papers.
The class had a relieved look on their faces, and one girl stated:
“Excuse me. I don’t think you’re mean at all” A girl by the name of Haley said.
Elizabeth and Anne could tell this class was going to have a lot of teacher’s pets, and they would be one of the first ones.
