((Noah Whitley continued from Subscribe Goddammit))

Free period was a godsend. Something that Noah had thanked God over and over for. For Noah, who spent most of his school days alternating between "forced enthusiasm" and "comatose," an hour to do something other than sitting quietly and making sure his eyes didn't look too glassy was needed. Most days, Noah took to a quiet corner of the library to watch a video on his phone or to work on some comedy. Sure, he'd study if he had a test coming up or get a jump start on homework if he had something else to do after school, but today wasn't one of those days.

Noah had just finished making a quick bathroom break and was now walking through the East Wing to get back to his quiet space in the library. He was trying to think of some jokes for his next web show, all centered on making fun of celebrities that week. Award season was in full swing, and he needed to get a Golden Globes themed episode up soon.

As he walked down the hall, tossing jokes about Boyhood and American Sniper in his mind, he noticed someone putting flyers up. The guy was a tall junior, not too bad looking, and Noah was curious what he could be putting up. Noah walked up and read one of the flyers on the wall.

"Bake sale...field trip...uhuh," he muttered to himself.

Noah turned to the guy and pointed at the flyer with his thumb

"Ah, I see the school is falling back on making sacrifices at the alter of Betty Crocker to go anywhere," he said. "Then again, I guess people are more likely to fund excursions if they get something immediate and consumable out of it."

Noah flashed a cheeky grin to the guy. He really hoped that would amuse the guy.

Noah was about to respond to Joshua's greeting when he heard the loud cry of some girl. Noah turned and saw Abby Floyd rushing towards Joshua. Noah had to crack a smile at how she called out to him. He half expected her to jump and kick Joshua in the face from the way she was running towards them. Fortunately for Joshua (but unfortunately for Noah's imagination), she didn't do that, and started chatting with Joshua about the bake sale.

"Nah, don't worry about it," Noah told Abby when she apologized for interrupting.

Joshua asked Noah if Pina would make an appearance at the bake sale. Noah had to laugh at that. For one, the idea of showing up in drag at a school function was quite absurd, and possibly something that could get him suspended.

"No, Pina won't show up," Noah explained. "Sadly, she's not allowed within fifty feet of school grounds. Court order and all that. Plus, she'd be likely to stuff her purse with as many brownies as she can, so you might be at a loss for profits if she showed up."

"But do you need anything in particular?" he asked. "I don't mind bringing something."

((Skipping to get this thread back on track))

Abby shouted that they needed pies. Noah raised an eyebrow. She sounded really excited about the prospect of the bake sale, to the point that Noah couldn't help crack a smile over how she was bobbing a bit.

"Pies sounds great," Noah said, letting out a small chuckle.

Noah thought for a moment. He didn't know how to make a pie. He could buy a frozen Sara Lee pie and bake it in the oven, but a homemade one was beyond his idea. He wasn't even sure if his Grandma had a recipe for pie. Now he was wishing he had spent more time in the kitchen instead of locked up in his room.

"Well, anything else you can think of. Y'know, for people who's only experience in baking is with their friend Mary Jane?"

"Yeah, that makes sense. The last thing we want for people at this school is for them to feel calm and stress-free. That's not what school is for."

Noah smirked and brushed some hair back. Josh and Abby seemed pretty cool, although Noah wasn't sure if Josh actually got the joke. That was something natural when it came to comedy, something Noah had issues with. Still, it wasn't that big a deal right now. What mattered now was figuring out what to bring for the bake sale.

Heh, I was just making a joke about it, but now I'm kind of invested in this. Eh, why the hell not?

"Brownies aren't that complex, are they?" he asked Abby. "It's one of those 'mix everything then put in the oven' dishes?"

"Yes, and I'm sure it's a wonderful recipe," Noah said. "Probably better than anything I could make."

Noah looked at his watch. Free period was winding down, and while chatting about bake sales was fun, he still needed to get some things done.

"Welp, I'll keep this in mind and see about bringing something along if I have the time. Peace out."

Noah flashed a peace sign as he walked backwards before turning around and heading down the hall. He chuckled to himself. He didn't think he could feel so cheery about pastries, but it was nice.

"Now, if I could only get this bit down."

Noah began to toss jokes around in his head as he walked down the hall, his pace speedy and slightly bouncy.
