them scholarships not likely and the big game I’ll be watching on the sidelines like everyone else if only there was some way to change my daddy’s mind you know I’ve always been your biggest cheerleader and then I said well I guess if you spoke your mind then you’d be speechless and then I blocked her. slay. but I followed on my fake account and she was totally freaking out it was hilarious that’s no baby yeah totally oh my god so happy for you guys you guys are perfect for each other no big deal it’s just destiny I guess so Chris how’d you ask her Oh a gentleman never tells that’s why he’s perfect for me I have so many secrets how are you guys such goals can’t wait for the dance see ya in study block okay I don’t know if I can do this of course you can it’s easy it’s fake Christopher fake is a bad word we pretend whatever okay it’s not me after the dance it’s over don’t worry I already have the break-up planned and then Cassidy can have you all to herself she’s my study partner well technically I think you’d be a power couple more than a power couple what’s more than a power couple? a super couple like with capes yeah like like boyfriend man and bae girl she’s so make that into a comic okay can you work on our project first I need an A oh yeah absolutely okay Lily let’s start with first impressions so the beast was like selfish and horrible and he forced Beauty to live with him against her will hello heritage this is Nicki and Chris and these are your morning announcements the big night is almost here homecoming dance this Friday thank you to everyone for all of your votes I will serve you proudly as homecoming queen and I’m excited to announce that this year’s homecoming king is none other than the person standing right beside me your football quarterback Chris Armstrong Chris what do you have to say I’m honored he’s blushing it’s so cute no I’m not it’s okay it’s natural um catch your tickets at the office only ten dollars all proceeds go to buying Kaylie a new phone for real she has a six okay it’s embarrassing and don’t forget to support your Tigers this Saturday two for one game and dance tickets are available at the office for only $15 go Tigers rawr yeah but you don’t have to say get an L tattooed on your forehead some people don’t want to go to the dance doesn’t make them a loser it’s just mean it’s a joke Christopher yeah well it’s not funny that’s a matter of opinion okay I’m just trying to sell tickets to the dance I’m actually a really nice person oh really yes I am well that’s a matter of opinion I’m not mean he’s not mean he’s just misunderstood he forces her to live with him cuz he’s sad and lonely that’s no excuse though it’s it’s literally kidnapping no it’s not it cuz he gives her food and clothes and like a whole castle to roam around in but not her freedom reading these old versions is totally ruining the movies for me same why do we have to hold hands people are watching its just until we turn the corner okay smile why are you so concerned what people think what are you talking about I’m so not you’re Nikki this is what you’re all about exactly I am who I am and yes I care about public perception but that’s just me and it’s important to be yourself and some people don’t like who I am but that’s okay because I don’t care what people think see you should be a lawyer lawyer what are you doing Instagram I have my fans vote okay I think we’re in the clear you know you’re not bad at what being a boyfriend what makes you say that

well you don’t walk too fast your hands aren’t sweaty and you don’t smell bad if anyone asks after we’re done I’ll give you a good reference Thanks so I guess I’ll see you tomorrow yeah what are you like expecting me to kiss you or something no okay well you’re just standing there I have no desire to kiss you nor do i kissing you that is I’d kiss myself but you know obviously bye bye why are you walking like that like what like ah with your your butt this is how I walk okay fine. she was taking my quotes and posting them as if they were hers yeah but they weren’t really yours they were Beyonce lyrics why would you get mad at her for that I didn’t get mad at her I just blocked her yeah but then you had all your friends block her too I don’t control what my friends do okay maybe a little. I think over here we should focus on beauty’s dream. dream? it’s actually not in the movie it’s in the fairytale beauty has a dream and it is she sees a prince and he’s like don’t believe everything you see trust your heart why oh because truthfully the beast is I’m not as many as you think I never said that you were mean I just said sometimes the things you do aren’t thoughtful I’m very thoughtful one time I gave a girl shoutout just because I liked her artwork really yeah what was the artwork it was fan art of me what you got like 200 followers wow how generous of you okay you know what do you want a truth bomb I never was this way until I met you what are you talking about it was after we went out in the eighth grade that I started to be like this okay first of all whatever second of all thank you for finally admitting your faults that is not what I said it’s okay everyone has them there’s no shame I have nothing to be ashamed of alright well that’s all obviously just because I don’t like mango they’re happy mangoes yeah mangoes they’re weird I don’t know how to eat them they have this weird skin and the pit in the inside I don’t understand that’s not a fault like a fault is like an unattractive feature in a person’s character what are you like a walking dictionary I thought you were a jock you think I’m a jock yeah aren’t you maybe to the people who don’t know me yesterday I asked my fans what do you guys think about me and guess what they all said yeah yeah you’re amazing and hot what you think I’m hot know what I’m saying okay you can say it there’s no shame whatever your Instagram feed doesn’t define you those 70,000 people have never even met you some have all right how about this instead of you admitting your faults you do the Instagram hashtag admit your faults challenge okay first of all I’m offended that you think I’d fall for that and second of all I’m totally making that a thing wait you’re gonna give me credit for that. And the prince tells beauty come find me so when you flip it over you see the goodness is already there you just have to find it exactly we should do a dance section it’s only in the movie its not even in the fairytale I can’t dance neither can I so look we need a first dance okay everyone’s gonna be watching we have to have something okay yeah but uh this is seriously when when you accuse me of being a jock it’s true okay I can’t dance do you have plays in football yeah same thing so my mom comes running my room she pulls out this fork and she’s

like Nikki you didn’t finish washing the dishes and then she takes the fork and she shoves it into the electrical outlet and she’s totally being electrocuted right she’s like shaking and there’s this crazy buzzing sound and then I wake up and the buzzing sound’s actually the sound of my alarm going off so like your alarm was part of your dream yeah that’s like the freakiest dream I’ve ever heard I know right what do you think it means probably that I’m mad at my mom too much what do you dream about I dream about the stars the stars yeah well like when I was younger I used to like to lay outside and watch them at night I’ve never really knew it said but it’s hey what why are you still holding my hand sorry hey so after we do this dance then what I don’t know everyone probably cheers for us or something are we supposed to kiss um we could why I don’t know it’s just we’ve never kissed before you know we might look like idiots thought you didn’t care what people think I don’t it’s just you know might be smart to do like a practice one or something okay here I don’t know you suggested it yeah whatever so what what kind of kiss we do just a pack right we don’t want to go overboard no the whole school will be there teachers my dad keep it PG definitely so we finished the dance everyone cheers I look at you you look at me I’ll step closer and lean in this is just pretend I’ll go left you go right how was that good was that long enough maybe a bit longer that’s you yeah sorry oh it’s it’s Cassidy mmm what did she want I missed study block today sorry I sounded like such a jealous girlfriend oh it’s it’s okay it’s just pretend

but it was as the beast that he learned to be kind and that’s one of the things that we can learn from this story is people can change and love conquers hate very nice alright talk back anyone yep isn’t the Beast unforgivable like how are we supposed to sympathize with him I get that he’s a prince but so what he keeps Beauty captive against her will the whole time that’s a good point you know a lot of fairy tales have a moral perspective that doesn’t stand up in today’s world what do you girls have to say about that but he sets her free like like when her dad needs her like he’s not even sure she’ll come back and he’s even willing to die of a broken heart for her freedom which he almost does so yeah good answer and don’t forget homecoming dance is tonight tickets still available at the office what are you waiting for dust off those dancing shoes it’s gonna be amazing audiovisual club meet in mr. Anderson’s room at 3:00 for setup senior boys football practice at lunch today the art room will be open to any Tiger fans wanting to make banners for tomorrow’s game Chris yeah I want to stop pretending me too you don’t have to come with me to the dance tonight I’m sorry I shouldn’t have made you do this Nikki will you be my date to the dance yes I will hey what if we didn’t go Nikki are you serious you’re the homecoming queen I’ve got a better idea

are you sure it’s probably just a satellite no Mars is supposed to be super close to Earth today I know a little bit about planets which is closer Mars or Venus Mars Venus can only be seen right before sunset and right after sunrise did you know that Mars and Venus had a love affair really how’d you know that I read it you read? yeah I thought you were a jock I thought you were mean so how long do you want to stay out here for long enough or maybe longer
