  Chapter 2:Flab Shortpants
Flab Shortpants was sitting at her desk counting credits. Most kids at the age of 12 had 100 or so credits. Not Flab. Flab has 2999 credits wait make that 3000 credits. Flab's mom called up to her "Time for school". She quikly grabbed her eletro-walet and slipped it over the credits. The counter ticked and showed 3000 credits. Flab ran down stairs quickly eating her breakfast and running outside. She looked up at earth to see how it was.(Flab Shortpants lives on Tiptop. Tiptop gets its name from being a rock in the sky with people living upside down so that when they look up they are looking down if you were on earth.

"Miss.Shortpants. Miss.Shortpants" almost yelled Ms.Hophonker.
"Yes" she replied a little dazed for she had been day dreaming of credits.
"What does x and y equal in this math problem:(x+1)+(Y/2+.5)*y=56" saying it as she didn't know.
"Well x equals 10 and y equals 9." Everybody turned to stare at her. Someone was smart and decided to time her. It had taken all of one second.

She had started home when some kids started towards her. The from the alley next to her came... Whosh-Suck-Lush.
