The Blooming Flower Club
Ch 13- New Kid in School
(If you don't know who Tinker Von Voltenhase is, I recommend reading my short 'Tinker Von Voltenhase' to understand who she is and how she ended up in this dimension)
The kids made their way to school as Tinker Asked Daisy why Vicky and Todd seemed a bit weird. Daisy rolled her eyes, at the mention of them being the weird ones, reminding her of how they met. Tinker just stayed quiet, noticing the two foxes holding hands as they approached the Elementary school.
"Okay Tinker it looks like we're in the same classes so just follow me and you'll be fine," Daisy said as Tinker huffed, saying that school was a waste of time for someone as intelligent as her, Tinker was able to accidentally create a portal to another reality and was being treated like a normal girl. heading into class with the other kids, sitting on the other side of Daisy. The kids get out their homework as Tinker just sat there,
The class seemed to go on like usual as Mr. Henry looked at his clipboard, before glancing over to Tinker who was just laying out her pencil case, he walked to her, telling everyone in the class that they had a new student joining them before looking at the tan rabbit.
"Why not introduce yourself and say anything you want to say, now's the chance" Mr. Henry explained as Tinker looked at the kids, all eyeing her as she stood up. introducing herself. She told the class her name was Tinker Von Voltenhase, and she was from 'far away' and just went there.
"And yes, the name is real, It's Northern European" Tinker explained, knowing her name seemed a bit weird as she went into her hobbies, saying she was interested in science and had nothing else to say as she sat back down as Mr, Henry looked at her.
"Well, it's nice to have you in class Miss Voltenhase, and now that introductions are out of the way, I don't want to hear a sound from you unless your hand is up, got it" Mr. Henry added writing on the chalkboard. The lesson was pretty boring and stuff Tinker already knew, she could probably sleep through class and still pass as they were given their assignments and began working on it.
Tinker did not even bother writing down notes on the elementary school material she already knew, instead of drawing the designs for an invention that popped into her head which she considered more important. Mr. Henry was too busy going over the lesson and not paying attention to the kids.
Afterward the kids headed to the art class. Tinker did the same things in class, introducing herself, than keeping to herself, she sat at her desk, working on her drawing as the art teacher Mr. Rossman walked over, looking over Tinker's shoulders to see the drawing of the strange device.
"What are you drawing Tinker, I like the futuristic aesthetic of your piece," Rossman said, believing the design to be a piece of artwork as Tinker turned to him, saying it was the design for a hoverboard as Rossman smiled, saying that the young bunny had a creative mind as Tinker dismissed the comment as Rossman just believing this something she was doodling as opposed to something she was in the process of building.
Eventually Mr. Rossman left to see what the other kids were working on. Tinker kept working on her hoverboard blueprints, considering the tech she often used did not exist here, it was like trying to build a computer of scrap. Eventually the bell rang as the kids left for lunch. the four kids walked together for lunch as Vicky smiled, looking at them.
"Brownies on me," Vicky said, jingling her bag of credits as Daisy smiled, saying she would pay this time as Tinker looked at one the coins which were unlike any currency she ever saw, asking what kind of currency this was as Daisy told her the coins were called Credits and where the form of currency as Tinker nodded.
"So you don't use dollars, right alternate dimension," Tinker told herself examining the coin as big as a silver dollar, handing it back to Daisy as the walked through the lunch line, getting their food as Daisy bought everyone in the group a brownie as they sat down at their usual table, sitting down as Tinker ran her plastic form thru the food as Vicky looked at her.
"Okay Tinker, what's up. You didn't know what a Credit was and you're examining your Macaroni like it's science?" Vicky asked, noticing that something was off with Tinker as Daisy defended, saying she was from eastern Europe to cover up Tinker's oddities as Todd looked at Tinker, asking why she was wearing gloves in late spring as Tinker set her fork down.
"Why is everyone so interested in me, I'm just a normal girl like the rest of you" Tinker deflected with a huff of her breath as she took a bite of her macaroni as a smile perked up on her face. impressed by the taste, it was different from the food of her dimension which was mostly flavored liquid and meals in pill format. Tinker took another bite enjoying the cheesy flavor, unlike anything she had ever tasted, shoveling the food into her mouth as the trio looked at her.
"Damn, she acts like she had not eaten in years" Todd replied as Tinker's tray was empty, looking at the brownie wrapped in plastic that Daisy gave her, taking a bite before spitting out the corner as she noticed the plastic, unwrapping it as she took another bite, scarfing the whole thing.
"This food is amazing," Tinker said, letting her childish sense slip through as she devoured the frosted brownie as Vicky looked at her, saying she could not be serious, this was school food and while yes the desserts here were good, the actual food not so much as Tinker looked at her.
"You mean it's getting better than this?" Tinker said, realizing she may have judged this dimension too soon, it clearly had positives in the form of frosted brownies as Vicky looked at her, eating her lunch as they heard a voice behind them.
"Hey Vicky, Daisy, who's your new friend?" a voice asked as they turned seeing Mary Ann looking at the tan rabbit who was licking the frosting off her gloved fingers as Vicky turned to the ewe, saying she was some foreign kid, staying with Daisy as Mary nodded looking at the brown rabbit, asking to speak with Daisy in private as she nodded, saying she would be right back. The two left and headed to the girl's bathroom as Tinker looked at them.
"Do people always go to the bathroom together in this dimen- country" Tinker defended, keeping as cover as a foreign kid as Todd shook his head, curious as to why Mary was talking to them. Todd was surprised, thinking they hated each other as Vicky shrugged saying they were working things out, the rumors circling around Vicky had died down so Mary did not have to act hostile to her anymore. The two girls stood in the bathroom Mary was talking to Daisy about the new girl in school.
"So, how does it feel, not being the new girl in school?" Mary asked as Daisy said it felt somewhat comforting, as they talked about the new girl who Daisy introduced as Tinker Von Voltenhase, a foreign kid from Eastern Europe as Mary nodded.
"So, she's new to our customs too, that's... interesting, do you think she has potential as a BFC girl?" Mary Ann asked as Daisy nodded, suspecting that's what the conversation was about. Daisy had not told Tinker anything about the club and did not want to force her into anything as Mary smiled.
"We would never force anyone into anything, but maybe offering her a place in the club might help her adjust, I mean look at you. when you came to town you were a shy and reserved farm girl, now look at you" Mary Ann said rubbing Daisy's elbows, complimenting how much she busted from her shells and seemed happier as Daisy looked at her.
"Should I talk to her about it?" Daisy asked as Mary smirked telling the rabbit that she was planning a slumber party on Friday, suggesting she bring along Tinker, that way if something goes down as she doesn't want to join they could chalk it up as a one-time slumber party gone too far. Daisy agreed that it was the best course of action.
Todd and Vicky were finishing their lunches as Tinker was hounding them, asking if she could have another brownie Todd looked at Tinker, asking if she had any money, she could just go through the line and buy another one as Tinker pulled a piece of green paper from her pocket, handing them to Vicky who looked at them.
"What kind of kooky currency is this, is this what they use in your country," Vicky asked looking at the green paper, handing it back. Tinker slammed her head on the table, the only money she had held no value.
"Great, my money is worthless here. I'm dirt poor" Tinker said as Vicky smiled, saying that made two of them as Daisy came back without Mary Ann, asking what she missed, sitting down at her spot.
"Tinker just found out her money is worthless here" Todd replied as Daisy looked at the green slips, rubbing her chin, finding that interesting. Vicky asked Daisy to tell her about the conversation she and Mary Ann had later as Daisy nodded.
