TITLE: Ride 'Em Gang
GENRE: YA Contemporary Fiction
Gregg flipped the visor down on his helmet and pulled the motorcycle up on the back wheel. He popped the clutch and hit full throttle down the hallway of his high school. Flying past the lockers at high speed, he waved his fellow students out of the way. That really wasn’t a problem. Seriously. Who expected a moto-cross before first period class, in the foyer? Right?
But what wasn’t expected was the back door lookout guy not to have the back door open as planned. It only took a few seconds to reach the other end of the hall and there was no way Gregg was crashing through that the steel door. With no other choice he swerved left through the cafeteria. The last few breakfast goers tossed their trays into the air as he jumped the first table in his way. A freshman girl tripped nearly falling into his path. Quick thinking saved the girl from a broke leg.
A teacher Gregg didn’t recognize jumped from faculty table shouting obscenities. Well, that’s what Gregg imagined he was yelling. How hilarious! He threw his head back and shouted to the teacher, “Ride ‘em!”
The doors to the shop room just happened to be open and Gregg took it as a sign he could get away scott-free. What he didn’t know was Principle Hatcher was addressing the staff in a late meeting. None to soon the back doors opened and Gregg shot the guy a thumbs-up.
