((Jeremiah Larkin, Start))

Swimming always seemed very weird to Jerry. Why'd they need it? None of them was in danger of drowning. They were in Arizona, there was no beach around here. Jeremiah once was in California when he was young for a vacation. There, he swam with his parents on the beach. It was fun. But now he was here, in a boring pool in Arizona, filled with a chlorine smell. That killed the ozone layer, didn't it? No wonder why in Australia there were so many beaches instead of pools.

That, and it was an island. That's why. Did some Californian students have PE class on the beach? Gee, that'd be swell.

Oh, yeah, the Coach also gave some instructions or so. He could ask somebody else, what they are supposed to do, he guessed. Or Jeremiah would just do what the others would do. Or just concentrate on what he said. Not listening to Parkinson would be a bad idea. Swimming probably was very important for Parkinson.

Jeremiah imagined Parkinson swimming like in that Omaha Beach scene from Private Ryan. Okay, this was silly. Maybe swimming wasn't important for Parkinson either. He was doing his job.

Inwardly smirking, he waited, till he could be dipped into the water.

He looked around, as a reaction to a sound, to see that somebody's, Junko's, water bottle had been kicked.

Apparently Ty kicked Junko's bottle. What a jerk.

Well, except he wasn't; he was a cool wrestler. But kicking other people's bottles is still a bit jerky.

Nadia talked to her about it, but he couldn't understand what was being said. She did yoga, didn't she? Junko then also waved to him, and his reaction was to wave back with a smile. Junko and the others went into the water, so he guessed he'd do that as well.

Luckily, Coach Parkinson was here. If he wasn't, Junko would almost definitely throw everybody into the pool, including him. But that wouldn't be bad. Going slowly into the water was torture. So he dropped straight into it. Quick and painless.

Being in the water was awesome, floating around without standing on his feet. His feet were a bit fucked up due to dancing. And then Jeremiah began to warm up with lap swimming.

When swimming, Jeremiah suddenly felt a slap. Or a punch. He did not know what the word for it was.

He did not know how to react either, breathing probably was the best reaction. But he couldn't breathe underwater, so after he got some water into his mouth, he spit it out and tried to get his head above the water.

Apparently Junko punched him. Meh, that can happen. But then again, it was Junko. However, her apology seemed like it was honest.

"No problemo."

Actually there was no time to chat, Parkison probably was watching them. He should continue swimming and so he did.

Hopefully they'll do something fun after the laps. Doing laps was kinda boring for him. But it was a warm-up after all.

Phew. That turned out rather well. Jeremiah would have hated it if Parkison would've monologued him or Junko. Jerry just hated it. Not because he was afraid of being ridiculed by the teacher in front of his classmates. After all, everybody looked at them anyway, right now, but whatever. It would've been just annoying.

Whenever a teacher or a parent wanted to hold a curtain-lecture. Sure, this was effective for little children, he himself was also intimidated by these in the past, but now? They were in high school, it was ineffective, it was boring, it was a waste of time.

Jerry knew that, even if either of them would not do their best, it'd have no consequences. He was good in PE, he couldn't give him an F on his report for bumping into somebody. Besides, he was pretty good in volleyball, so even then he would get a good grade. No consequences, this was ridiculous.

Parkinson's behaviour was really ridiculous and his threats were bluffs. But Jeremiah was smart enough to know that, heh. But hey, maybe his other classmates didn't know that. That's why Parkinson's a teacher, isn't it?

That was the goal. Make every student do their best. That's what Jerry did, that's what he knew without having to get a lecture. So he tried to swim slightly faster.

And then his opinion about the threats changed when he bumped into Mia, who was a dang fast and good swimmer.

He really should've payed attention instead of ranting about Parkinson's silly threats in his head. Now he realised that the threats might've been more than just annoyance why he didn't want to be drill sergeant'ed. And bored he wouldn't be.

Jeremiah was caught by the laughing and grinning. Laughing was contagious for him, so he had to laugh as well.

He then agreed with Junko to not crash into each other and showed it with a nod, while smiling.

"You got me, Rose", he said with a grin to Mia.

Then, he swam to the end of the track to wait for volleyball. Well, in volleyball he was forced to concentrate more than swimming, because else the ball will land on the floor.

Jerry had to giggle loudly. Puns were funny and made Jeremiah smile. Okay, sometimes they were lame. But now they aren't.

He wished he could think of one, too. But he couldn't. Kurosawa, Kurosawa. How the hell can there be a pun made with this name?

Still, Jeremiah was a bit afraid of a possible sanction of Parkinson and tried to not get noticed by him.

Oh, Parkinson's a good name for a pun. A parking son. Or something like that. Waitno, that wouldn't ever make sense in any context.

Yeah, puns are lame.

And it did. Jerry managed to not crash into anybody while swimming or while playing volleyball.
