Frowns All Around (2)
[Last time on Pudgyville...]
"Another boring day but then, there?s nothing exciting about it ever. Oh look, it?s a photo of my former pupil Ms. Sheila. She always had the nerve to sleep during my lectures. Now that I hear she?s been made a teacher, I do hope she?s not promoting any silliness. It?s time for me to tackle the illusion of the smile once and for all," declared Derek before heading out. [In Pudgyville...]
"Good morning, students. Isn?t it wonderful to be back in school? Now we?ll start today?s class with a new segment for English and that?s not like how we?re speaking but we?re going to study things like plays but of course, only those where fat is involved," announced Ms. Sheila.
"Ms. Sheila, don?t tell me you?ve continued to spread the illusion of happiness," began Derek.
"I won?t stand by and watch you corrupt my class. We?re settling now!" declared Ms. Sheila.
"Corrupt? No, I?m informing them of the info you?ve been lying about," protested Derek.
"I am not a liar, Derek. You?ve been literally blinded by your eyesight and lack of better judgment," stated Ms. Sheila.
"Nonsense. I?ve heard you talking endlessly to your class day in and day out. You don?t know what the truth is," continued Derek.
"I know very well what the truth is. I think you?re scared to admit that your teaching is flawed," remarked Ms. Sheila.
"Stay out of this. You don?t have control anymore. As of right now, you?re demoted to student," declared Derek.
"Eduardo will hear about this," announced Ms. Sheila before heading out.
"Now then, as I?ve stated before, I?m here to show you what you?ve been missing all this time. You?re not in a pleasant world, that?s what you were told to believe. This world has been miserable since the beginning of time. The only reason why you were told it?s a nice place was because they didn?t think you could handle the truth. I?m going to show you a video of what it?s really like in your world," continued Derek before getting a TV and putting in the video.
"I don?t like this," thought Truffle.
"Me either, Truffle," whispered Mocha.
"See? You?re all hesitant to believe it because you?ve been lied to all this time. Now watch the video and be informed about how the world is," replied Derek before the students watch. [30 minutes later...]
"I don?t know what to believe anymore," said Bob.
"Believe that what you just saw is how the world is. Happiness is just an illusion. Everyone is miserable and will be miserable the rest of their lives," stated Derek. *Eduardo walks into the room*
"What do you think you?re doing?" asked Eduardo.
"Educating these students, something your former teacher never could," explained Derek.
"I think not. You don?t have the authority to demote Ms. Sheila. I?m mayor Eduardo and I call the shots here," protested Eduardo.
"Then you can join the others and see how faulty your world is," suggested Eduardo.
"I will not tolerate your behavior. Leave this town at once or I?ll call the authorities!" ordered Eduardo.
"Just how does your "authorities" stop a former military pony?" asked Derek.
"Military pony?" questioned the others.
"That?s right. My age is a clear indication of this. You guys did have a war here but you never actually won it. We just wanted to make you think you did so this could be planned out," nodded Derek.
"Impossible, we won that war fair and square. You will not brainwash this school on my watch!" shouted Eduardo before unplugging the TV.
"You?re just as delusional as the others. You believe the same lies they were taught," reiterated Derek.
"That does it, you?re going to be arrested here and now," declared Eduardo before walking out of the room.
"He says I don?t have the authority? Well he doesn?t realize that as a former military pony, I have the authority over him!" thought Derek.
