Passing Detention Notes
Disclaimer: ART IS NOT MINE. NOT QUITE SURE WHERE IT’S FROM SO I’M SORRY IF I PISS SOMEONE OFF. JUST LEMME KNOW AND I’LL FIX IT BY ADDING YOUR CREDIT. SORRY BRUV.
Zack sat in a desk near the back of the class for detention. His desk usually faced the back wall, but Zack usually sat on the chair backwards and observed the class or randomly tapping along to whatever song he was listening to. He noticed that his friends generally actually got some work done during this time. He watched Kimberly pull out her Biology textbook while Billy pulled out some maps and colored pencils. Jason was furrowing his eyebrows at a math textbook, and Trini was reading a book that was assigned in English.
Zack sighed. He had gotten his work for class done already. His teammates found it surprising that he was still able to be a student at Angel Grove High since he was never in class. In all honesty, he got much of his work from his teachers through emails, so he was able to get some work done. After all, there wasn’t much to do up in the mines. He usually sat inside the abandoned train car and got some work done, just enough to make sure that he would be able to graduate. The school didn’t like it, but Zack thought that as long as he was still passing, it would be alright.
Now that he was back in school with his friends, he actually did quite well in classes. He still spent a lot of time in his hideout, so he got a lot of work done.
Zack was bored out of his mind. Detention wouldn’t be over for another 2 hours or so. He smiled and took out a piece of paper from his bag. The other rangers were still concentrating on their homework, but Zack was sure they would notice what was about to happen. Sure enough, when Zack tossed the folded up paper at Jason, he instinctively reached up and caught it between his fingers.
He looked back at Zack, confused. Zack just smirked and gestured at Jason to open it.
And so it began: The Epic Detention Note String.
Zack: Hey! I’m bored, so we’re gunna play a little game of catch with this slip of paper. Write down a note with your name and pass it on! If you miss a toss, miss a catch, or end up getting caught, you lose! Just keep passing till the paper runs out of space! Doodle if you want!
Jason: I’m busy, so don’t blame me if I miss.
Billy: Sounds fun! Totally gunna sabotage.
Kimberly: Drawing time! Sorry it took me forever.
Zack: HOW DID YOU DO THAT IN LIKE 3 MINUTES! TF!
Trini: My girlfriend’s better than all of you.
Billy: My turn!
Jason: LOL accurate. How are you people drawing these things so fast?!
Billy: I don’t know. How are we passing this paper around at superhuman speeds?
Kimberly: He has a point. (NICE BILLY)
Trini: … Kudos.
Zack: I’m not sure whether to be flattered or insulted.
Kimberly: *doodles Go Go with power rangers lightning in corner*
Trini: FUCK I DROPPED IT.
Jason: And the first person drops out!
Kimberly: She looks so angry LMAO
Zack: BILLY! WHY! I ALMOST DROPPED IT! WHAT DID YOU PUT ON IT?! ITS SO SLIPPERY! PAPER ISN’T SUPPOSED TO BE SLIPPERY!
Billy: LOL. Vaseline.
Jason: Woah. That was really slippery. The paper’s still in pretty good shape though….
Kimberly: LOL. THAT WAS THE WORST TOSS I’VE EVER SEEN. HE ALMOST FELL OUT OF HIS CHAIR! Mr. Bossman is out!
Zack: Agh, too bad. At least he isn’t smearing it anymore, being left handed and all.
Zack: BILLY! STOP! I FUCKING DROPPED IT! DAMN! Welp, Zack-Attack is out!
Kimberly: Did he seriously call himself “Zack-Attack”
Billy: … *doodles bees in the margin of the paper*
Kimberly: We should start a band! *Doodles power ranger lightning bolt with power ranger colors*
Kimberly: I WIN BITCHES! BILLY FAILS AT SUBTLETY! THE TEACHER TOTALLY LOOKED SHOCKED.
Jason: We just passing it around now?
Billy: DANG IT!
Trini: Told you she was better than you guys.
Zack: Yo! Go Hart!
Jason: Guys, team meeting tonight by the campfire. We are discussing this band thing…. I call lead guitarist!
Trini: No fair! We are totally hashing this out tonight.
Zack: Ok ok. I think the writing should stop. We’ll just pass it to everyone to keep everyone updated. If it gets back to me. I’ll put the paper away. We are doing this again!
Trini: I’ll win next time…
Zack smirked down at the page in front of him. His teammates wrote everywhere on the paper, marking where the next line was with arrows and dashed lines. The paper looked like a road map full of words and little drawings. His friends were all looking back and forth from each other, silently chuckling. Zack took out another sheet of paper and wrote all their names down in separate rows. He gave Kim a “point”. Oh, I am totally crushing them next time. He put away the paper they wrote on for safe-keeping. He wanted to remember these moments.
The detention bell rang, and all the students began gathering their things. The rangers burst out laughing and immediately gathered. Zack displayed the scoreboard he made and they all laughed and commented on different types of games they could play.
They exited the building, and Zack thought to himself as the sunlight beat down on them. He was glad he met them. They were good for him.
