    mmm, sure smells like a sequel.

    Okay so Chet final used an arrow to end Nick's life and can now claim his prize, Melody, only she's lost. That's j8ust normal for Melody as she always does on an expedition for precious stones.

    No. Then don't keep us in suspense too long, Jestor.

    Nick is going to inherit the baron's title?

    Or maybe Morengay died?

    asd21593: This AAR or the first line?

    Enewald: In order to fully appreciate this AAR, I recommend you read The Beautiful Girl and the History Class linked in my signature if you haven't already.

    Chief Ragusa: Now -that- would be interesting. I'm not sure when I'll get the next post up... still tinkering with a few things, but it should hopefully be sometime late this week or early next week. I've a presentation to prepare for Tuesday, plus 44 Composition I papers to read, comment on and grade by Friday.

    Cecasander: I say nothing. You'll just have to wait and see...

    YES!

    Finally, a sequel to my long-abandoned parody "The Dumb-As-Rocks Girl and the Ahistorical Class!"

    I sure hope it's not Pantsless Dude who died!



    What?


    This is the sequel to "The Beautiful Girl and The History Class?"


    Huh.


    Never heard of it.

    Actinguy: It is a shame you had to end that AAR. I quite enjoyed it.

    GhostWriter: Politeness and speculation will get you nowhere in this wAARld.

    Hajji Giray I: Poor parrot.

    J. Passepartout: You'll find out by this weekend. Or possibly sooner. Depends.

    Fiftypence: Thank you.

    Note to all: I promise, promise, promise to have an update written by Sunday night. Grading papers has taken me much longer than expected, especially when I had a presentation due this Tuesday that was 30% of my grade in a course.

    "What? Who's dead?"

    "Bobby Schwarzwald. Caveman. He killed himself. Shot himself in the chest."

    I scream, scream with the pain, the shock that shoots through me. No! No, this can't be real! Not Bobby!

    "Becky, calm down! It'll be okay, just calm down."

    But I can't. Not right away. It takes me a few minutes of shaking and sobbing and I'm still dizzy with disbelief as I cling to his voice over the phone.

    "Why? Did he... leave a note or anything?"

    "I don't know. All I know is what happened. Look, do you have anyone nearby you can talk to?"

    "No. I... It's a long story. Can... Can you come?"

    He hesitates, a pause that slashes across my heart, ripping open the old wounds, but I'm in too much shock to notice it outside of the stinging.

    "We'll be there on the next flight."

    "No! Please, don't bring her! I can't face her right now! Not after..."

    He sighs and I squeeze my eyes, trying to hold back the snuffles of another set of tears.

    "Look, here's what I'll do. We're both coming, but I'll arrange it so that you don't see her until the funeral. I'm sorry, but that's all I can do."

    "Thank you, Nick", I hiccup.

    "I'll call you when our plane lands."

    I drop the phone after we hang up, run to the bathroom and vomit in the toilet just before passing out on the cold, white floor.

    What an opener
    So Caveman was really the hopeless kind of romantic, not strong enough to stand the things he experienced.

    As Cesander, I assumed it was Morengay, but I know why never to trust the first impression when reading through Jestors works

    If it was a suicide, I'm not all that suprised at the identity.

    I just caught up with this one which is an achievement I just didn't manage in "The Beautiful Girl and The History Class".
    But I'm sure this one is going to be brilliant at least

    What!@? (@ sign not meant but if fits somehow)

    Caveman...dead? NOOOOOO! Caveman was the man. He is the guy most like me. Not the Romantic thing but the whole lonely philosophical way of life.

    And shooting yourself through the chest? I am doubting that this was suicide. Or did Caveman want the pain?

    And Becky and Nick still have a "thing"

    sbr: Thanks! Your unbridled glee pleases me.

    Black Guardian: I figured it might shock a few people.

    asd21593: One of the shocked, I presume?

    J. Passepartout: What makes you say "If"?

    Treppe: Wow, thanks. But a sequel is generally not as good as the original, just so you know... though I will try! I do strongly encourage you, if you can, to finish BG&HC as I think you'll get more out of LG&HB if you do so.

    billy bob: Good questions to ask. And what leads you to believe that Nick and Becky still have a "thing"?
