Legend’s Second Chance

∆Chapter Seven∆

There had been a teacher waiting for the bus and she led us to our first class.

I sat down in the back of the classroom in a seat that was closest to the door. After everyone was seated, our teacher began to speak.

”Hello yall I will be teaching history to you little chums today. First of all, we will always do a roll call at the beginning of class, but today I want each of you to introduce yourself. Tell me your name, favorite hobby, and what you want to become when you grow up. We will start with you. ”

She pointed to a little girl in the front of the class who wore glasses, such a hideous contraption. The girl had brown hair, brown eyes, and she stuttered as she talked.

”H-hello yall, my name is Mia, my favorite h-hobby is reading, and my dream is to become a teacher. ”

As the girl stopped talking, a boy next to her shifted uncomfortably in his seat and started talking.

”Hey, my name is Matthew, I love fishing, and I want to become a pilot. ”

He had red hair, green eyes, and his face was covered in freckles. I wondered for a moment what a pilot did, maybe I would ask the boy later.

The next boy to talk was the miscreant who had shot a spitball at my face and he was sitting adjacent to Matthew.

”Wassup classmates, my name is Jackson, but my friends all call me Jack. My favorite hobby is basketball and I want to become an astronaut. ”

He smiled smugly and crossed his arms as the next kid started to talk.

”Hey yo, my name is Bill, my favorite hobby is basketball, and I also want to become an astronaut. ”

Bill was one of the kids who was sitting next to Jackson on the bus. One of his goons, as my father would say after watching his western movies.

”My name is William, I enjoy basketball, and I will be an electrician. ”

William did not seem as bad as Bill or Jackson, but it seemed he was still friends with them. He had blonde hair, blue eyes, and an average build.

”I am Gavin, I enjoy hunting, and I will be a Marine. ”

One of the things I really knew about in this life was the military because I was very interested in joining them, so when Gavin had said he was in the military, I was overjoyed. I would surely get to know him better in the future.

”My name is Sarah, I enjoy shooting the bow, and I want to become a dentist. ”

Sarah had blonde hair, blue eyes, and was tall.

”My name is Gloria, remember it, for I am glorious! My favorite hobby is swimming because it is simply the best exercise a person could possibly do. I want to get a scholarship at a school known for swimming and from there I want to go to the Olympics to beat Michael Phellps. He may have abnormally webbed feet, but I am Glorious! ”

The teacher coughed several times and clutched her throat to contain her laughter.

Gloria had red hair, brown eyes, and was skinny. I would have to talk to her later because I wanted to join the swim team. I had swam a little bit in my past life, but not as much as I would have liked to.

”Hello gentlemen and uh ladies. My name is Andrew, I love rock hounding, and I really want to become a geologist when I get older.

Andrew was someone who I certainly would not enjoy talking to. He seemed like an Athenian, all about philosophy and useless things like that. He had brown hair, green eyes, and a baby face. He was sitting next to me, so I scooted my chair closer to the door in disgust.

Everyone was staring at me. I nearly had a mental breakdown when I realized it was my turn. I was a fearless Spartan. I would never fear such spineless younglings and their weak teacher.

”My name is Leon, but my friends call me Leonidas because my physical training is just that hard. My favorite pastime is shooting and I occasionally go hunting. I will become a Navy Seal. ”

My teacher stared at me dead pan for a moment and then turned away and introduced herself.

”My name is Savannah, and I am your history teacher. All of you have given very interesting information, but most of all, I want to hear from Mr. Leonidas again. This is a history class you know, so I am a little curious what you know about Sparta and that particular time period. ”

”Sparta is the most glorious civilization, most militarily advanced, has the best warriors though their numbers may be a bit slim, and have their soldiers go through hell to make them strong. ”

”You are talking in the present tense, you know all spartans were killed in the battle of Thermopylae. According to Heroditus, the three hundred spartans killed about twenty thousand Persians before they were flanked and overrun by sheer numbers. Their Greek allies eventually fended off the Persians and that brought about the rise of Athens and all the surrounding Greek cities save for Sparta. After the three hundred spartans all died, their families commited suicide. ”

”Are you kidding me? Those foolish Athenian scholars profited by our glorious sacrifice. Well I suppose they made a statue of me? ”

”Ahem, yes but its lower body has crumbled. ”

”That is horrifying. Who would dare to make my statue crumble? ”

”Uhm time. ”

”How long has it been? ”

”Over two thousand years. ”

”H-how can that be! ”

Savannah had become annoyed because the student was clearly trying to be a clown.

”That is enough, stop acting like you are some spartan hero. You are a kid and the only spartans you will find are in Halo. ”

I had realized my mistake, but she had said there were more spartans so I had to ask about it.

”W-what is this halo? ”

”That is enough, ask your classmates later if you are so curious. ”

All the students thought I was joking, so they laughed at me. I didn blame them, but I would have to do extensive research about Halo.
