Sunny Flare lives a perfect life...so why is she struggling? Book Two of The Crystal Prep Chronicles: Before the Friendship Games

  • ...

The Day Drags On

Sunny trudged out of the classroom. I almost fell asleep in class! That's never happened before! She started pulling at her hair in frustration. I can't for the life of me remember the last time I've been this bored! She pulled at her eye sockets and growled.

"Bored?" said a voice behind her.

Sunny turned around to see Indigo Zap, thankfully not as close to her as Sugarcoat was.

"No, I'm trying to stretch my body because it's been my lifelong dream to break the world record for tallest human." Sunny said sarcastically, rolling her eyes at Indigo.

Indigo snickered. "I didn't think you had a sense of humor."

Sunny shrugged. "Whatever gets me through a day as slow and uneventful as this."

Indigo smiled. "I hear that. I almost want to tempt fate just so something interesting would happen."

"That's hardly ever a good idea." said Sunny.

"You'd rather be bored out of your skull than have anything interesting happen today?" asked Indigo.

"I'd rather be bored out of my skull than risk a chance of any sort of catastrophe." said Sunny.

"Hey, sometimes the reward makes the risk worth it." said Indigo.

"Sometimes." said Sunny.

"Look, it's not like I want the apocalypse." Indigo thought for a moment. "I just want something that's non-lethal and harmless but still exciting to happen."

"Such as?" asked Sunny.

Indigo shrugged. "I don't know! I'm so fucking bored I think my imagination put itself out of its misery!"

Sunny blinked.

"What?" said Indigo. "I can't think of anything creative right now, that's the best reason I can think of!"

Sunny rolled her eyes. Perhaps I am indeed surrounded by idiots. Perhaps.

"Oh, come on!" said Indigo. "Surely this boredom's been affecting your brain as well."

"Maybe just a little." admitted Sunny. "I feel like I might be on the verge of losing my mind!" And not just because of the boredom, either. she thought. "Got any ideas on how to kill this boredom of ours?"

Indigo grinned. "I do, but I think we'd get ten to twenty years if we followed through with it."

Sunny blinked again.

Indigo laughed. "I'm just kidding. I've got nothing right now."

Sunny groaned, frustrated. "Then why am I even talking to you?!"

"You've got nothing better to do." Indigo said, smiling.

The bell for the next period rang.

"I do now!" Sunny said in a singsong voice. "Ta-ta!"


Another class, another one hundred brain cells destroyed thanks to boredom. Sunny thought as she left her classroom.

"Incoming!" shouted a voice from behind her, approaching at a fairly rapid speed. Sunny yelped and jumped to the side as Indigo passed her by, rolling on the wheels hidden from within her sneakers.

At least she seems to be having fun. thought Sunny, feeling slightly jealous. Maybe I should try something like that. Her eyes widened and she shook her head. What am I thinking? That sort of behavior doesn't suit me. I mean, I know I'm bored, but still!

"She can be so annoying sometimes." Sugarcoat said, once again nearly a foot away from Sunny.

Sunny yelped again. "Don't you have any respect for personal space?!" she yelled. "How do you keep doing that anyway?"

Sugarcoat smiled. "It's easy to sneak up on people when they're lost in thought."

Sunny sighed. "Okay, you've got a point." she begrudgingly admitted. "Do you have any ideas on how to kill boredom?"

Sugarcoat opened her mouth.

"Besides masturbation?" Sunny said, unfortunately loud enough for any nearby people to hear. Several students stopped and gawked at her as she buried her head in her hands.

"You don't seem to be bored anymore." said Sugarcoat, smiling.

"Go to hell, Sugarcoat...go to hell." Sunny said, her face still buried in her hands.

"You're welcome!" said Sugarcoat as she walked away.

Great. Not only am I fully convinced that I'm surrounded by idiots, now I look and feel like an idiot as well! Sunny thought as she grumbled and muttered under her breath. Once she finished, she sighed and went to her next class.


Lunch time. Sunny thought as she left the classroom. What sort of lunacy are Sugarcoat and Indigo Zap going to force me through this time? Quickly snapping out of her thoughts, she scanned her surroundings. Perfect. Just perfect. she thought as she put the palm of her hand to her face and dragged it down her features. I'm surrounded by idiots, I look and feel like an idiot, and to top it all off, I'm getting paranoid! She grunted in frustration. I almost prefer boredom over this madness!

"Sunny Flare?" said a voice behind her.

Sunny yelped, then lost her temper. "Son of a bitch! Can't I go at least one fucking period without being startled?!" She panted, her body shaking from fury. Sunny turned around to see Dean Cadence, and she blanched. "Hi...Dean...Cadence." she said sheepishly.

"Are you okay, Sunny?" Cadence asked.

Sunny sighed deeply. "I've just been having a rough couple of passing periods, that's all." she said as she began to calm down. "First boredom, then stupidity, then boredom again, then stupidity again..." she felt her anger rise, but calmed it down with another sigh. "Sugarcoat and Indigo Zap were trying to cure me of my boredom, but at the same time doing so at my expense. Well, not every time I spoke to them." She pulled at her eye sockets. "I swear, this day has been ridiculously boring and it's been driving me mad!"

Cadence smiled. "I understand. Have you tried making friends?"

Sunny rolled her eyes. "Like I haven't heard that a million times already." she sighed.

"I know this isn't the ideal place for friendship, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't at least give it a chance." said Cadence.

Sunny sighed. "Yeah...I guess." Suddenly, she felt a huge pang. She cried out in pain.

Cadence ran over to Sunny. "Sunny! Are you okay?"

"I...I think so..." she said as she tried to catch her breath. Before she could say another word, a fresh wave of pain rippled through her body and she blacked out.
