    Driving School is Now in Business (Tag: Ariana)

    Post by Skyler on Mon Mar 14, 2011 4:16 pm

    Jana and Ariana had been pushing the car all morning, from around 9am to the time it was now. They had agreed to come together to do it, and in the long run it was not that bad. The two girls had a chance to talk before getting into how to drive and all that jazz. People chuckled and laughed at seeing the two girls pushing the car through the city, cars moving out of the way for them.

    Finally arriving at the wastelands, they only had to push the car a little more, to which Jana turned to Ariana. "So, why didn't we ask someone to drive this here for us?" she asked, only just realizing that possibility. How funny it was she never even thought about the possibility, since it would have saved the two a lot of trouble.

    A few minutes after her question, they were finally done pushing the car, to which Jana opened the passenger seat and took out a small bag. "I just brought us one sandwich each and a drink, so we don't get too hungry." She threw a zip locked back and a can of Pepsi.

    Ariana rubbed her arms sorely as they FINALLY reached the wastelands. That had taken just about forever...and who knew cars weighed so very, very much? When Jana asked her why they didn't get someone to DRIVE it for them......Ariana gaped at Jana before face-palming.

    "Oh GOD we're stupid. We're very very VERY stupid! Or maybe just me, but at least one of us is stupid!" She finished pushing it the tiny distance left, still feeling annoyed at herself, before joining Jana in grabbing a can of delicious Pepsi and a sandwich. "Good idea. We can rest up from our.....very stupid adventure while we eat. Then, we can start with the driving lesson!" Ariana grinned happily, before taking a large bite out of her sandwich.

    Whoever knew she'd one day be using her knowledge from Driver's Ed to teach a cyborg wirewolf girl how to drive in a car that randomly appeared just because it was her birthday and a ghost girl wanted to give her a gift? And speaking of gifts...she'd have to think up what to give Jana soon.

    "Why are we such idiots?!" she asked, flailing her arms like she usually did when she was exasperated. Honestly, they had not thought this through. At all. Jana had been way all too excited about having a new car and to have Ariana help her learn to drive. Hopefully she knew what she was doing and wouldn't make them crash into...well there was not much to run into, now was there?

    "Sounds like a plan!" Jana said, taking her sandwich out of the bag and taking a few bites. "I done good."

    "I have no idea why we're idiots." Ariana snickered, although there was still a small amount of 'Why are we so STUPID' lingering in her thoughts. And that thought made her think of something else, something that made her stop on her last bite of sandwich.

    "..............Did we bring the keys? PLEASE tell me we brought the keys to the damn car." She hoped, she PRAYED, that they did NOT leave them in the sanctuary. She did NOT want to have to walk all the way back then all the way here all over again. She crushed her empty can against her skull easily and waited for Jana to hopefully tell her that they brought the keys.

    "Well at least we got exercise out of the deal, amarite?" she said as more of a statement then a question, poking Ariana's nose. "Now we can learn from our mistakes and never push a car for so many hours." she grinned and finished her sandwich.

    Then came the question of the keys, to which Jana, started to look through her pockets, then looked at Ariana with a bad look on her face. "Oh hell, Ariana, I think I forgot them at the sanctuary! Now we have to go back!" After a moment of silence she smiled. "Gotcha~"

    Ariana snickered, cracking a small smile finally. Jana had a very good point, at least they'd learned. And, the burning in her arms meant that her human form had probably FINALLY gained a few muscles. But then, Jana looked in her pockets and frowned, telling her that they had FORGOTTEN THE KEYS OF ALL THINGS.

    Ariana simultaneously gaped and facepalmed. "Oh GOD we SUCK! We suck a LOT. WHHHY?!" Ariana yelled dramatically, shaking a fist into the air, before Jana's last statement finally sunk in. 'Gotcha'? Oh that little-!

    Ariana laughed despite herself, and laughed heartily, giving Jana a highfive. "Oh, you got me good!" She smiled, before giving a small gesture to the car. "Ready to learn how to drive?" She reaaaally hoped she remembered the lessons from Driver's ed well enough...

    "Yeah we sure do suck~" Jana said, playing along and laughed when Ariana heard that she was always joking. "That's just how good I am~" she snickered and high fived her back, giving her a quick hug before letting go.

    "Oh, am I ever ready to get to drivin' this thing." she snickered and got into the car after unlocking her door. She then unlocked the other doors so that Ariana could come in. "So, now what?"

    Ariana got in the passenger side and racked her brain to remember how to drive. It'd been 10 years after all. First of all, they had to start the car, of course. But...how much did Jana know about cars?

    She looked over to Jana's side of the car and found the ignition slot. "See that um...slotty thing, behind the wheel? That's where you put the key." She said, pointing at it as best she could. "When you get it in there, turn it forward until the car starts, it'll make a loud kinda..rumbling noise, and then just let go of the key." There's no way that can go wrong.

    Jana sat in her seat, and got comfy in the seat, putting her hands on the wheel. She had not driven in a normal car for awhile, let alone drive one herself. She was used to the kinds of automobiles that were on Trade World, not a car. It all seemed pretty confusing too! None the less, she was happy to be there with Ariana, someone she felt close to.

    "Ok, key goes in the slot, got it." she said, sticking the key into the key hole, turning it until the car revved up, making the starting up noise as it did so. "Ok...going smoothly so far."

    Step 1, start the car, was over and done with easily! Now, they should probably work on the gears, and pedals...

    She gestured to the space between them, with a handle sticking out and several labels. "You see this thing? Its the gear shift. P is park, which we're doing right now, D is drive, R is reverse, and...I'm not sure what the others mean. But the Park, Drive, and Reverse ones are the important ones anyway!"

    "In order to change gears, you have to step on the brake while you're doing it. The brake is the flatter looking pedal down by your feet, and the gas is the thinner looking one. And when you shift gears, you have to push the little...button thingy at the top of the handle while you are moving it. Think you could try shifting to drive?" Ariana asked, hoping she had explained it well enough, since Jana was likely more used to spaceships than cars.

    Jana listened intently to what Ariana had to say, following her gaze to whatever she was looking at. She took notes in her mind as Ariana showed her the shifty thingy majiger and nodded to her at each pause. Now that the easy part was over, now all she had to do was follow through, with what they said....

    First, she stepped on the break, and then reached for the shifty stick, slowly but surely, she pressed the button on the top of it, and turned it onto drive. "Eee~ I did it~"

    Ariana grinned as Jana followed through, step by step. "You're doing well! But next comes the more...challenging part, driving." Ariana hoped that Jana would be able to do it. If not, they could always try again, but she mainly didn't want to hit anything...but then again, here in the wastelands, what was there to hit?

    "The brake is used to stop the car, and the gas pedal makes it go. Since you've changed gears to drive, we'll be going forward when you hit the gas pedal. When you step on it, you don't have to slam, and you don't have to for the brake either. You just press down slowly and gently....when you've driven for a while, you'll get the hang of it." She explained with a smile.

    "When you grip the wheel to steer, you need to have a steady handle on it. Turns aren't too hard, you just need to slooowly turn it, instead of yanking. You'll also need to do a turning signal, but we'll get to that later....now, when you grip the wheel, you usually need to hold it at '10' and '2', which is just fancy talk for the sides of the wheel, near the top, like this." Ariana explained, miming out holding a wheel in front of her, with the '10' and '2' hand places.

    "Oh god the driving is the hardest part? Eeeeh..." No she was gonna do it! She was gonna learn to drive even if it killed her! And hopefully dieing was not part of the driving part of this oversize. Hopefully she would not like, crash the car into a lake that popped outta no where, or some kinda animal! That would have been an interesting story to tell.

    "Brake stops, gas, starts. Got it." she repeated, putting her foot onto the gas pedal and they started to move. She then put her hands in the right positions on the wheels. "Ok, I got my hands on the right places.." she kept going. "Now what, teacher?"

    So far, so good. VERY good. But they didn't really have to do anything intricate with the car yet, right? Jana was learning how to drive, not how to make letters with a car.

    "Hmm..I'd say, for now, just drive around a bit, do doughnuts, get used to using the wheel mostly." She snickered at being called teacher. That was certainly new. "How do you feel with driving so far Jana?" She asked. If Jana was getting overwhelmed, they could always stop for now.

    Jana nodded at her driving instructor, keeping her eye's looking at where she was going, and hands on the wheel. "So far, so good." she nodded to herself, chuckling nervously.

    "That works for me, I'll just work on a little turn now..." turning the wheel slightly she managed to turn, and then went back in a straight line. "Oooh, this isn't so bad, actually.
