Franks Family Farm, South Dakota

"But Mooommmmmm!" Danny complained loudly, and I really couldn't say that I blamed him. Mom would have had the same request for me last spring, except that I'd been very quickly rushed off to school to avoid death threats.

"It's ... humiliating!" he added in a solid whine that rated at least a 7.6 on the 'whine-o-meter'.

"Nothing I haven't done," I smirked to my brother. For all the times he'd been a total pain to me, it was payback time, and I was relishing this.

"Kayda!" Mom snapped, irate at the way I was teasing Danny. "Remember how you felt when you had to deal with this!"

I couldn't help but scowl. "I do remember, Mom," I retorted angrily. "And as I recall, Danny teased the shit out of me when it was my turn!"

"Language!" Mom snapped at me. "And just because your brother was a pain to you is no reason for you to tease him! He's your little brother! You're supposed to love and support him!"

"Yeah, that's a one-way street," I muttered to myself as I stalked from the room. "It's not fair!"

Imp 4:  A Teacher's Tail

Part 1

 

 

The Village, Monday morning, Sept 3rd, 2007

“But I don’t wanna go to school,” I whined.

Unfortunately, my alarm clock completely ignored me and continued to beep in the most annoying fashion ever. If my clock had been sitting next to my bed, I probably would have thrown it across the room. Of course, that was the reason I’d set it up on the other side of the room in the first place. I actually had to get up in order to turn the thing off.

I hated having to get up early like this, which was one of the reasons I’d been so happy doing freelance work in my previous career. Back then, I’d been so carefree and innocent. Stay out all night long, steal whatever I wanted, then sleep in late. I’d almost never had to deal with the masochistic annoyance that was an alarm clock. Unfortunately, that had changed.

After a minute, I pulled myself out of bed, turned off the alarm, and began my morning routine. I rushed through my shower as quickly as I could, then hurried to my kitchen for a pot of coffee. As a regenerator, caffeine didn’t really do much for me, but it still had a nice psychosomatic effect.

As I took my first long drink of dark caffeinated goodness, I tried to psyche myself up by exclaiming, “Up and at em, Atom Imp.” It helped, because I felt more awake already.

With a cup of coffee in hand, I put on some cartoons to watch while I got ready for school. I felt almost like I was a kid again, getting ready to go in and spend a boring day in class, but this time, I was the teacher. I still had a hard time believing that I was actually a teacher. Me…the fabulous Imp.

After Christmas, 2006
Meraker, Norway

"Einar! What's up?" Regine called from her front door as Einar rode past on his bike. "Why do you look like someone shot your pet dog?"

Einar slowed, turning his bicycle, then rode across the packed snow onto the cleanly-shoveled driveway of Regine's house. "Hi," he said unenthusiastically.

"What's going on? Come in and we can make hot cocoa and you can tell me about it."

Einar dismounted from his bike and leaned it against the porch, then followed Regine into her house. Unlike everyone else outside at the moment, he was wearing a light jacket instead of a heavy winter coat, and he still looked comfortable, while everyone else appeared quite cold.

"So, what's up?" Regine repeated as she put the kettle on to boil.

Einar slumped into a chair at the table. "I just met with Mom and Dad and Ms. Næss," he said morosely.

Den Sovende Kongen - The Sleeping King

 

Late August, 2006
Meraker, Norway

Like any normal teenager, Einar Arvid Ruud could stand to wait a bit longer for school to start. Summer in Meraker was wonderful, with the lakes, salmon fishing, hiking, and wilderness camping, and the thought of giving up that outdoor adventure for the boring classroom was almost intolerable. For a kid who loved the outdoors, it was heaven - unless the preference was for winter sports, but then again, Meraker was heaven for that, too. Einar's father worked at the Alpinsenter, a facility that was a summer resort and conference center, and in the winter, it was a haven for skiing, cross-country skiing, and ice-skating.

"I'll be back late," he called over his shoulder to his younger sisters, Sara and Thea, who were busy with some girls' game that interested Einar precisely not one little tiny bit.

"Dad said he wanted to talk to you at the center this afternoon," Sara, who at eleven years of age was two years younger than Einar, yelled after him, but she was a little late, and the sound of the door slamming was her only answer. She carefully scooted from behind the game board and raced to the door, flinging it open. "Einar!" she called after the boy who was already dashing away on his bicycle. "Dad wants to see you at the center!" She stomped her foot angrily. "Oooohhh! Dad's going to be furious!"

"He'll get grounded," Thea, the seven-year-old younger sister, said mockingly. "Come on, let's keep playing!"
