Today there was a fire alarm at my school. It became apparent there wasn’t a fire at all, because everyone was let back inside fairly soon. However, I thought I would take this opportunity to share a small story.
I was in Geometry class, just minding my own business and not feeling confident about the upcoming quiz when there was a loud blaring noise. Everyone in the class looked at the flashing alarm and slowly stood up, unsure of what was happening. Like always, our teacher was confident in the moment and ushered us all out the side door.
I was worried about the potential of fire as my class started to exit and whirled around, grabbing my book on a sudden impulse. As I hurried to join the rest of my class I noticed that my friend Cheshire had also grabbed her book (and her water bottle) and was cradling them near her.
We exchanged a knowing look. We knew we had our priorities straight…. am I right? XD
Anyway, that’s it! Thanks for reading!
Oh, and we still did have that quiz……
P.S. The book that I was reading was the second book of the Fablehaven series. I will do a full series review once I have completed all the books.
