The Blooming Flower Club
Ch 9- Return To School
It was the next morning as Vicky got up and tapped her alarm clock, stretching as she left her bed. The young fox girl prepared to get ready for school, getting dressed as she left her room. Vicky walked to the kitchen where Todd was eating from a bowl of cereal as she walked to the counter, pouring herself a bowl before sitting at the table.
"And how's your morning?" Todd asked, placing his spoon in his mouth. Vicky nodded, still yawning as she began eating her cereal. Vicky said she slept well, asking how Todd was, who seemed to get over his cold.
"It would be nice to get back to school, thanks for bringing me my homework," Todd said sarcastically as Vicky joked about him falling behind in class, scooping another spoonful of colored cereal, taking a bite. The two finished their bowls, and placed them in the sink and they got their backpacks, leaving for school.
The two left their house and began walking along the sidewalk as Todd looked at his sister asking what her friend was like. Vicky told him about Daisy as they came to the bunny's house.
"Daisy is really nice, she's new in town so it's kind of hard for her, so be nice to her" Vicky stated as Todd smiled, saying he was always nice and looked forward to meeting her. Eventually, the door opened as the brown rabbit exited the door, waving to her mother wearing a pink dress.
"Have a fun day at school sweetheart" Rosa Fields called out as Daisy smiled, saying she would before closing the door, walking to the two foxes, hugging Vicky, looking at Todd, asking who the boy was as Vicky smiled.
"Daisy, this is my twin brother Todd, he's been out of school this week because of his cold, Todd, this is my friend Daisy Fields" Vicky introduced as he smiled, offering his hand to Daisy who shook it, introducing herself as they seemed to hit it off.
"Well Vicky speaks very highly of you, so I look forward to getting to know you," Todd said smiling at Daisy as the three of them walked down the sidewalk and headed to school. Upon reaching Holdingpaw Elementary, the three walked through the hallway as Daisy looked at Vicky.
"Wow, you two look exactly alike" Daisy commented as the two siblings looked at each other laughing at how true the statement was as Todd stood next to Vicky, saying it was like looking in a mirror as they approached class. Daisy pulled Vicky aside as Todd went in to sit at his desk.
"So, Does Todd know about... you know," Daisy said tapping the silver chain around her neck as Vicky looked around shaking her head, telling the bunny that he did not know about the club and informed Daisy not to tell him anything about the Blooming Flower. Daisy nodded as they entered the class, taking their seats, Vicky's between Daisy and Todd as their Teacher Mr. Henry was writing on the chalkboard turning around.
"Oh, Mr. Robinson, you have finally decided to join class, how was your week off," Mr. Henry said with a sarcastic tone. as the Fox boy opened his bag.
"I Had a cold, I already dropped my doctor's note at the office," Todd said, putting a stack of papers on his desk, bringing his teacher's attention to the pile of homework he still got. the old Panther walked around the class, collecting the sheets. He told the kids to review their notes before the math test as the kids did so.
"Mr. Henry, may we form study groups?" Travis the Tiger boy behind Todd asked as the kids got a glare from him, taking the answer as no, each kid pulling out their notes. The next 30 minutes were grueling as the kids were over their paper as Mary raised her hand, saying she finished and asked if she could be excused to the restroom.
Mr. Henry grumbled, telling her to be quick as the young ewe left the room. Vicky was finishing up her test, turning her sheet over as the kids did the same. After the test, Mr. Henry collected the papers dismissing the class.
The kids headed to Lunch, Vicky getting her food as Todd and Daisy went with her.
"Snacks are one me, one per person," Vicky said as The three of them got brownies on their tray as Todd smiled at Vicky, calling her the best little sister ever. Vicky smiled saying she was as they each got a slice of pizza, fries, and a carton of milk. The three made their way to the lunch table where Vicky and Daisy usually sat. Todd sat on the other end of his sister. Two boys from classes approached them, called out Todd, saying it was nice to see them.
"The first was the aforementioned Travis from class, the second a pig named Peter who were Todd's friends, asking if they could sit down as Todd looked at the girls, who nodded.
"Nice to meet you two," Daisy said, introducing herself as Travis smiled, introducing himself and Peter, setting their trays down. the five sat at the table as Peter looked at Todd.
"So Todd, are you coming with us to 'Jerry's Toys' after school, we're gonna buy some Heros and Villians booster packs, you want to join us," Travis asked as Todd Nodded. Daisy looked asking if she could go, she loved Heros and Villians.
"Sure the more the merrier" Peter said, biting into his pizza as the group began discussing their collections, Daisy mentioned she had a Silver Rare Red Rabbit Card as the boys looked impressed as Peter whistled. they looked over at Vicky asking if she collected cards.
"I'm Todd's sister, of course, he gives me some of his Duplicates," Vicky said, claiming it was no big deal as her Brother looked at her. telling the group not to let the tone fool them.
"When I gave her a Platinum Rare Volt Vixen for her birthday, she cried her eyes out in joy" Todd explained as the boys looked at him in shock that he just gave his sister Platinum Rare card. Todd explained that Volt Vixen was her favorite hero and he put it in a sheath as Peter looked at Vicky.
"I'll give you 700 Credits for your Volt Vixen card" Peter offered as Vicky spit out her milk, surprised by the offer of 700 Credits for her card looking At Todd, asking if it was really that valuable.
"I mean you got it in a pack of cards for 10 Credits, no way it's worth that much" Vicky said in disbelief as Travis looked at her.
"Yeah, Platinum cards go for around 500 Credits, you think that's Crazy, Some Diamond Rare cards go for a couple of hundred Credits" Peter replied as Vicky choked from that knowledge. They kept talking about cards as the beaver girl Claire walked up.
"Hey, Vicky, can I talk to you, Mary wants you on club duty tonight, do you mind?" Claire asked politely as the boys looked at her.
"We're in a gardening club, girl stuff" Daisy defended as the boys lost interest at the word gardening, continuing to talk about their cards.
"Claire, my brother has finally got over his cold, I was planning on spending the day with him, can you get someone else to do it," Vicky asked as Daisy said that she was free and did not mind filling in for her, Claire looked around, nodding her head, telling Daisy to met her at the usual place, she would fill her in after school, walking away.
Well, I think I might tag along with you boys, get some card packs after school, no that I know I'm sitting on Credits" Vicky said. The school day went as well as Daisy walked off, meeting with Claire, who told Vicky, she'll keep an eye on her.
The kids made their way to Jerry's toys, walking in to see a koala who welcomed them into his store, looking at the boys, asking if they wanted their usual, putting three booster packs on the counter. Todd asked for two extra packs, one for his sister and one for her friend. Jerry nodded, taking an extra 2 packs off the shelf.
"Five Booster Packs, that comes to 15 credits, total" Jerry said as the boys added up their coins. handing a sum to Jerry who handed them their pack. The four opened the packs, with the exception of Daisy's pack which they would give to her later.
These three are duplicates, how much could I get for these" Vicky asked as Todd looked at the cards. telling her that Jumping Jack was worth 2 credits each because he was a copper class card which was really common. Vicky looked at how confusing this was.
"Card Value goes from Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Steel, Iron and Copper at the bottom as Vicky held up her Jumping Jacks, offering them to anyone, but there were no takers.
