Short Story: School of the Future (Part Two)

Here is Part Two:

Abie was becoming more and more frustrated that her ID card was locking her out of the school's lobby. Why does technology always fail me at the most inopportune time? She thought.

Alexia was approaching from farther down the hallway. Oh, great now here comes embarrassment skipping down the hall. Abie thought. She fiddled with her ID card again.

"What's wrong Abie?" Alexia asked as she reached her.

"My ID card is locking me out again!" Abie grumbled.

"You must have really done it good this time! No one get's locked out of the lobby unless they really broke some major school rules!" Alexia commented.

"That's the thing though, I never break the rules, you of all people would know that, Alexia." Abie sighed.

"So your ID card just randomly malfunctioned, huh?" Alexia said sarcastically. "Yeah, right."

"Um, actually, that's exactly what happened," Abie said softly.

"Yeah, sure." Alexia resounded in a disbelieving tone.

"Well, how do I fix it?" Abie asked.

"Honestly, I have no idea. I'd scan you through with my own ID but then I would be locked out too." Alexia said before entering through the force field to the lobby.

Abie felt anger bubbling up inside her like a pot about to boil over. How dare she accuse me of getting myself into trouble!  Abie thought.

She headed back down the hall towards the tech support office. Abie hoped that they would fix this soon, she didn't want to face another unpleasant confrontation with any of her friends again. Abie walked into the office and sat down to wait for her turn. This is literally going to waste my ENTIRE day. She thought.
