Chapter 10

Shannon returned to school on Tuesday and everyone wanted to know from her what had happened. It was rare for so many people to want to speak with her. It was also fun for Shannon to hear all of the exaggerated stories spreading about her demise. Her teachers eyed her suspiciously in each class before they turned to the task at hand. Shannon suspected that they wanted to know what happened, but they didn't want to be rude and ask. She would have liked to tell them the truth but the student body seemed to be enjoying conjecture. Shannon didn't want her sudden popularity to end.

The substitute teacher, Mrs. Greene was teaching physical science after lunch. Shannon was looking forward to the class because they were doing an experiment on sound waves. The class would be using Slinkys to illustrate the experiment. For any other substitute teacher an exercise using Slinkys could have spelled trouble, but no one dared mess with Mrs. Greene. The class clowns, after a few run-ins with her, knew better.

When the students entered the science room that day there was an audible sigh by the majority of students when they saw who their sub was. Shannon felt a little twinge of happiness at the discomfort of her fellow classmates. She hated it when the students took advantage of substitutes, especially the nice ones.

The class went as expected with the students filling out their work sheets under the watchful gaze of Mrs. Greene. Shannon was relieved that she was able to finish the assignment in the time allotted for the class. She didn't want to take home a lot of homework today, not after spending the weekend in the hospital.
