Rose woke up early the next day, and got dressed so she could be ready to practice for her part as Juliet. She remembered that it was her, Sela, and
one of the guys that threw their arms up for it, and due to the magic of dice, Rose won. While she got dressed though, Rose wondered about that
mysterious club that Seth went to last night, and how she should talk to him about.
"Let's go Rose!" Sela's irritated morning voice yelled from down the stairs. Rose screamed to herself and went down the stairs, full of intent to
ask Seth about the club the second she saw him, that way he couldn't distract her with some random thing.
"Good morning Rose." Seth said from behind Sela, holding Rose's kitten in his arms.
"Are you just in love with my kitten?" Rose said, but before he could answer, she started the interrogation, "So, uh, where were you last night?"
"House." He said, walking out of the house, Rose's kitten perched on his shoulder.
"He's lying, I saw him somewhere else yesterday." Rose whispered to Sela as they walked to the school. The two girls talked a little, while Seth
led the way, occassionally making cat sounds with the kitten that he was giving a ride to. They finally made it to the school, where Nathan walked
over to them.
"Hey Nate." Seth said, and the two of them started talking about some game that Henry had at his house for them to play. It turned out that apart
from Ms.Gates, they were the last ones to get there. Everyone quickly got their costumes on, and while everyone was remembering their roles, Daniel
and Seth were having some private conversation to themselves.
Ms.Gates walked into the theater after half an hour, and gaves Seth a quick pat on the back to say good morning. Everyone was surprised by how fast
Seth jumped away from Ms.Gates arm though, before it even got close to him. Seth easily moved a couple of yards, before turning around and seeing
Ms.Gates looking at him.
"Sorry about that. Please don't touch me again. Ever." Seth said, before taking a deep breathe. Rose looked over to see Sela standing there, her
analysing face on. Rose made a mental note to take to Sela about her psychoanalytic "notes" afterwards. Everyone got in position for the play, with
each person having a main part in the play and alternating to another part when needed. It was going good until the scene that Rose had to change from
a girl to a guy, which resulted in a person wearing guy's pants, a sword, a womans flowery corset, and a blonde wig.
"Oh Gog! Let me fix this!" Rose said to her laughing club.
"Hmm, man form waist down, woman from waist up, every bi guy's best dream!" Henry said laughing.
"What, you're telling us you want a guy to-" Nate begun, but was stopped by Ms.Gates
"Enough of that please!" She said blushing. Everyone moved on and went back to acting, and everyone had done amazingly and thye were sure that next
Thursday everyone would love to see them.
"You guys were amazing." Seth said. "I'm starting to like Drama Club, no matter how cliche Romeo and Juliet is."
"Be nice, You're just jealous that you didn't get to be the one to kiss a romeo." Henry said
"That was you that rose your hand!?" Rose said, her head almost popping off from spinning to look at the guy blushing slightly.
"Eh, I figured it would be funny. But now I look at all the crap Juliet's charecter has to do, I say no."
"a few kisses, a couple of hugs, and being blessed by a priest, oh yes so terrible." Daniel said.
"To me it is, I'm not going to be married off to some guy."
"Good, I wouldn't want you anyways." Henry replied.
Everyone made it back to their houses, and Rose talking to Sela on computer.
What do you think about Seth Dr.Selphil?
Are you always going to call me that when I psychoanalyse a person?
*sigh* Fine. He's hiding something about himself obviously. I'd bet he was abused by people when he was younger, and as such, gets uncomfortable
around others. Also how he acts whenever we're around him means he has esteem problems. The gambling is probably a way to cope with his problems.
Wow, you found that out just by him jumping :?
No, I've been analysing him all week, he's definetly the arrogant asshole I thought he was.
Then what is he?
A TEENAGER :O :O :O
well, thanks, see ya my

It was a few days later for Rose until the big day of the play. She was dressed up, making sure to have her stuff organized together so they didn't
repeat the crossdressing knight episode.
Everything had gone great, and it was the last scene, the big scene for Rose as this meant she would be able to kiss Henry. It was truly romantic, and
she planned after the play to ask him to be her boyfriend. Her life seemed perfect, until the cruel irony of narcolepsy kicked in.
"Rose, you awake?" Ms.Gates asked as Rose woke up. She saw everyone standing over her, and then sherealised that she fell asleep.
"What happened with the play?"
"We had to find someone to play your role for the last scene, I'm sorry Rose." Ms.Gates explained, and Rose understood. She couldn't control her
narcolepsy, but it still sucked when it would cause crap in her life.
"Who took my place?"
"The guy over here, wishing someone would kill him already." Rose paled as she heard Seth's voice. She imagined the scene with Seth bending over,
kissing her Henry on his lips. At least she got satisfaction afterwards where he stabbed himself in the chest with a dagger.
"Oh come on! I'm not that bad a kisser!" Henry yelled.
"First person I ever kiss, and it has to be a mutant tall arian with his pants half on."
"Whatever Short." Seth fidgetted at that nickname, but left it there, as he walked over to the others.
"You guys all did a good job, come on let's have a group hug." Ms.Gates said, pulling everyone in. Unlike before, Seth let himself be pulled in, he
still looked uncomforatble, but at least he was trying to get used to being touched. The moment went well, until Daniel jumped away in shock.
"Who just touched my butt!?" Daniel asked.
"Sorry!" everyone screamed, all laughing at the blushing teen.
