New Dawn Ch 7Lina's ankle proved to be a burden during the long jump, and she ended up sitting out during the 400x100 meter relay. The track meet went until nearly sunset.
Lat that evening, they met at their favorite hangout, Twister's. Cindy and Lina ended up sitting atop her Geo's hood as they shared a bag of tacos while watching the sunset from a shady spot in the parking lot.
"Do you think you'll be okay with your ankle?" Cindy asked.
Lina finished her taco. "I think so. I'll head to the doctor's on Monday and get it X-rayed and everything. At least I can walk on it in the meantime."
Cindy tugged on her friend's lucky headband. "I guess it's power is limited."
"Nah, luck didn't have anything to do with my getting hurt. Luck allowed me to win. I was just careless." Lina tapped her bandage. "If anything, I was lucky I didn't fall and get all scraped up."
New Dawn Ch 6The rest of the evening passed fairly quiet, as did the following day of school. Cindy had been fortunate to avoid any transformations during the school day, but following swimming practice she had her first bout with a hair dryer.
Most of the girls had left, thankfully, and she was largely alone was just returning from washing off the rest of the chlorine from her skin and swimsuit when Molly Turino handed Cindy her hair dryer at the mirror.
"Here, Cindy, you can use mine," Molly, a redheaded freestyle swimmer, said as she handed over the plugged in dryer.
"Thanks Molls," Cindy replied without a second thought. Cindy proceeded to dry her hair, directing the hot air towards her head and shoulders. Not a minute later, her fingers seized up and slipped, dropping the still running hair dryer as her hands bulged and turned into tires. Cindy hadn't even felt her fingers tingling with cold chills before her change had begun.
"Shit!" Cindy ran into
New Dawn Ch 5By morning, the young girl was sleeping on the mattress upon the floor. There was no indication that anything had happened. By all rights, she slept better than she had in weeks.
That morning, she drove her Geo to school, picking up Lina along the way as normal. "How did it go last night?" Lina asked.
"Mom might've went a little ballistic, but I think Dad said he'd smooth it over. She usually comes around."
"That's good. Anything else?"
Cindy pulled over. "I was on the phone with a doctor from Sandia National Labs."
Cindy recounted her lengthy conversation with Dr. Archuleta the evening before. "She said she was leaving me a science project of sorts."
"Yeah one massive one, at that. Cindy, as weird as this all is, I told you yesterday that we'd make it work. And I meant it."
"I knew I could count on you." Cindy glanced over her should
New Dawn Ch 4"You might change this sentence here and be sure to check the tense when using the word 'spent' instead of 'spending.' Other than that, I'd say you're on your way," Cindy explained as John listened intently.
"You sound just like Mrs. Othmar, you know that?" John muttered.
Cindy shrugged, forcing a smile.
"My little friend is becoming a teacher more and more every day," Lina giggled, even though her eyes were constantly drifting towards Cindy's fingers.
Cindy's phone began to ring. She shrugged as she checked the number. "Hold on." Answering the phone, she shook her head. "Hi Mom. Yeah, I know I know we were going to do that, but I was supposed to meet with John for homework Mom Mom, please, he's right here in front of me I don't need a bed today, and even if we order okay okay okay, Mom I'm sorry I didn't tell you, even though Dad and I discussed it and it
New Dawn Ch 3Cindy spotted Lina leaning onto her Geo after finishing up with practice. "Maybe you'd have been here faster if you parked in a swimming pool?"
"Or on the track," Cindy replied as she unlocked the door. "What was your time on the 110 meter?"
"1:32! Faster than Jean Smalley!" Lina exclaimed.
"Great! You'll set a pace for the team that's sure to take the badge!" Cindy climbed into the car, finding the seat quite warm. "Yow!"
"Wow you sure found a spot in the sun today, didn't you?" Lina placed her windbreaker on the seat before climbing in and buckling up.
Cindy winced a little before starting the engine and cranking the air conditioner, which was blowing hot air. "Darn this thing takes too long to cool down." She closed the door and put the car into gear while buckling up and pulling out from the parking space.
"At least it works better when we're moving," Lina replied. "I'm taking m
