Amelie Storksdottir's Head Goes Round - First Chemistry Class

(previous chapter)

Amelie Storkdottir was loving every second of her new life. She loved the school. She loved her roommates Tutsie Utero, Josie Pregs, and Rosie Green. They had so much in common they talked non-stop half-way through the night upon arrival. They shared their dreams, their fears. They became friends instantaneously.

But that was all just settling in. What was really important was the studies.

She looked around the classroom. Everyone was sitting at their desks, looking uncertain and slightly sheepish. Only Janus Twoface and Eric Fruitful talked at the back. Boys. Amelie rolled her eyes.

– Hmmm, there you are. The next generation of baby-carriers. – The teacher walked in and studied them through her huge bifocals. – My name is Mrs. Woohoolah Owlish. Silence please.

Amelie felt confused. Mrs. Owlish handed out chemistry kits containing tiny colourful jars with mysterious labels “hCG”, “estrogen”, and others. There were little bottles with some microorganisms swimming in circles. And a vial with minuscule… balls. “What on earth has this got to do with babies?” – Amelie thought, slowly swirling the swimming microorganisms.

The lesson began. There were tons of diagrams, charts, definitions. Amelie looked longingly at the colourful jars and the microscope. She felt bored.
