Yes! Third chapter. Almost done. I hope you enjoy this chapter. It take me forever to write just 1 of these.
The terrified boy sat in silence. Everyone started laughing at Mike.....hard. He got really embarrassed. Mike's teacher thought he might have a serious problem, but she didn't know what. "Mike, please come to my desk. Everyone else, please finish your test. When you're done put your test on this stool". Mrs. Smith put a stool in the front of the room. Mike came up to his teacher's desk. "Yes, Mrs. Smith" said Mike. "Mike, do you know what just happened?" asked the worried teacher. "No, I don't. Could you please tell me" asked Mike curiously. "Yes. This is what happened. You were taking the test and you were almost finished. All you had was 1 question left. Zoey said she saw you getting really frustrated and then your eyes bulged and you took a huge breath. Her words not mine. Anyway, she told me and when I came to talk to you, you talked to me like an old man. After that you took another huge breath and your eyes bulged out again. That's what happened" replied Mrs. Smith. "That's sounded even crazier than the one Zoey told me about." said Mike. Zoey looked up. "Mike, I'm really concerned about you. You should go see a doctor. Also I want you to tell your parents". "No. Please give me one more chance. You know that it's almost the end of the year and this test is really nerve racking." said the nervous Mike. Mrs. Smith thought about it for a minute then told Mike "OK. But if it happens again please tell your parents". "Thank you. Mrs. Smith. You won't regret this." said Mike.
He sat back down and guessed the last question. Then Mike put the test on the stool like everyone else. He was more scared than ever now. What will his friends think of him now? The terror inside of him ate his very soul. He wanted to crawl up inside and cry into his knees like the world was ending. Ding. Ding. The lunch bell went off. Mike walked up to Mrs. Smith's desk. "Mrs. Smith, may I eat lunch in here?" asked Mike. "Well, you have to be with at least one other person". Mike dropped his head and sighed. "I'll eat with Mike. Me too". Mike turned around. There was Zoey, standing next to Cameron. Mike couldn't help but smile slightly. "Thank you, Zoey and Cameron. I'll see you after recess" said Mrs. Smith. She walked out of the class room and locked the door. Mike grabbed his lunch box and walked to one of the corners of the classroom. He started to eat his lunch. Zoey looked at Cameron and Cameron looked back. "Poor Mike. Come on Cameron". Zoey and Cameron walked over to Mike. He was just sitting there, with his knees tucked to his chest and his eyes tearing up. "Mike, do you want to come eat with us?" asked Zoey. Mike didn't answer. "Hey". Mike looked up. "We don't care what just happened or what happened during gym. We like you for you. Your our friend. Now, please come and eat lunch with us" Cameron said anxiously. Mike stood up and hugged his two friends tightly.
He then walked over to his desk and sat down. "Well? Are you just going to stand there or are you going to eat with me?" asked Mike hysterically. The three friends ate lunch and hung out. At 1:30, the teacher and their classmates came into the room. "Hello, children. Did you have a nice lunch?" asked Mrs. Smith. "Yes." said Zoey. "Well, that's good. Zoey. Cameron. May I see you at my desk please". While all the students were putting their stuff away and getting ready, the two students walked up to the desk cautiously and nervously. " I appreciate you two being here with Mike. Thank you". "You're welcome, Mrs. Smith" the two said at once. They walked back to their desks feeling really satisfied. The day went on as planned. Through the day, Mike was asked by several people if he was just acting. This is what he said to every one of them: "Yes. It was just an act. I like to be funny. Please don't think I'm weird and creepy because I'm not". Finally, the day was over and everyone was so tired, especially Mike. He walked on to the bus and his bus driver ,Matthew, was handing out suckers. Mike thanked him and sat down. They rode all the way home and never spoke about what happened again.
Two weeks passed since the Chester thing and Mike hasn't told anyone, not even his parents. Mike was going to have a end of school year party and everyone knew about it. They were all so excited because it meant they were moving on to middle school. Mike was the most excited ,in his class anyway. He was still worried about what has been happening. What if it happened again while he was at the party. Mike was in the living room deciding what to do at this party this weekend. "OK. So we have everything, but the food list. Let's see. Why don't we have hamburgers and hot dogs." said Mike's mom. "Sure, and we can have fruit salad, chips and also soda." replied Mike excitedly. "OK. Well we have everything for the party tomorrow. Why don't you go get ready for bed Mike". "OK, daddy" replied the tired little boy. He walked upstairs to his room and turned on the radio. Then he got into his pj's and brushed his teeth. Mike hopped into his bed and started to read another chapter in his book( he hasn't read for a couple weeks). This is the beginning of his chapter: Both boys were awake before dawn. And they had stayed up late the night before, going over the plan. But Sticky wasn't at all sleepy. Fear was keeping his eyes wide open. As he got dressed in the dark, he whispered up to the top bunk, "Reynie, they didn't happen to blindfold you when you went to Mr. Curtain's office, did they?". "A blindfold. No". "Then I guess right away if I'm going to the Waiting Room. That's something I suppose".
Mike finished the chapter around 8:30. He was so tired from school and planning the party. Mike turned out the light and laid his head on his soft pillow. His eyed drooped and he yawned. He fell deeper and deeper until Mike completely fell into a deep sleep. Mike dreamped more about the dragon: the dragon was about to eat Mike when he took out his sword, ducked down under the dragon and when the dragon's stomach reached Mike he thrusted his sword into it. The dragon fell over onto its side. Mike was covered head to toe in gushing ruby red blood. He reached over to the dragon to feel it's heart beat. There was one last beat until the dragon was completely dead. "THE DRAGON IS DEAD!!!!" exclaimed the relived servant. Mike was breathing deeply and he dropped his sword. The cheering grew louder and louder. Mike felt extremely tired and dizzy. He landed on his knees and then his face. The servants took the heavy young man into the infirmary. About 10 hours later Mike woke up. He felt terrible, like he had a cold and a fever( if that's even possible). He was groggy and he had a terrible pounding in his head. "It's good to see you up." said the doctor. She walked over to Mike and gave him some medicine for the headache and grogginess. "Thank you" replied the grateful Mike. " You gave everyone a good scared after you passed out". "Is everyone OK now?" asked Mike. " Yes, everyone's fine. Why don't you go join everyone in the courtyard". Mike walked out into the courtyard. Everyone was there. They all asked concerningly if he was alright. Zoey on the other hand ran up and kissed him. After that day Mike and Zoey lived happily ever after.
Mike woke up happier than ever. It wasn't the dream, but it was the last day of school for them. He went to go look at his calendar. There it was, June 8th. He went to go take a shower and get dressed. 20 minutes later Mike ran down stairs so exited he nearly tripped and fell down the stairs. "Good morning my little graduate . Are you exited for the last day of school?" asked Mike's mother. "Yes!" Mike exclaimed. "Good. We made you a special breakfast". Mike's dad grabbed a plate of waffles with wiped cream and straw berries. "Thank you" Mike replied. He ate his special breakfast and rode off to school. Mike hugged his dad when he got to school and walked off. He was still nervous about walking into class, even if it was two weeks ago. He walked into class and only like 3 or 4 people stared at him. He put away some of his things and went to play with some of the other kids. Like 20 minutes into play time Mike's teacher came in. "Everyone ,take your seats it's time for class". Everyone sat down. "Now, since today is the last day of school, this year because you're in 5th grade we're going into the Middle school. You will meet all the teachers. Now let's go." said Mrs. Smith sadly. The students from all 5th grade classes rode nervously to the middle school. They were assigned classes for next year Mike walked into one of his classes next year surprised to see Zoey following him. "I guess we have the same science class next year" said Zoey. "Yeah, I guess we do". The two friends sit down next to each other and they see a tall woman with blond hair. At 10: 30 the teacher started to speak. "Hello. My name is Mrs. Baker." started the new, exited teacher. She spoke and the students listened. The teacher still spoke and the students still listened. Everyone got really bored. One kid fell asleep. An hour later Mrs. Baker told them they were going to tell their name and something about their selves. A couple people went then it was Zoey's turn and she stood up. "My name is Zoey and......um......oh yeah. I've visited 5 different European countries. They were Croatia, France, Austria, Greece, and Poland. Also I've visited Australia". Everyone was shocked, even Mike. Nobody has ever been to 5 European countries at their age. Zoey sat back down and finally it was Mike's turn. He was unsure about what he should say. But then he knew exactly what to say. It was so perfect and so simple. "Hi. My name is Mike and I have won 10 science trophies at science fairs around the US". Mike sat back down. Everyone was so impressed, but mostly the teacher and Zoey. Everyone went around to other classes they had. Most kids think they lost like 5 pounds because they had to walk a lot. Around 1ish everyone left back to the elementary school.
The tiring day felt like it went on forever for the soon to be 6th graders. When it was finally over and the annoying bell rang everyone rushed out of the building. When Mike was walking to his bus a couple people from his 5th grade class told him how exited they were for his party. Mike was the most exited out of everyone. He got to his bus and his bus driver was handing out soda and candy bars. He grabbed a root beer and a milky way (his favorite kind of soda and candy bar). They rode off to the neighborhood and Mike got off the bus. He ran as fast as he could home. The young, tan boy walked in and found his mom cooking for the party and his dad out back setting up tables and decorations. "Hi mommy" said Mike. "Hi honey how was the last day of 5th grade." asked his mother excitedly. "Good. We went to the middle school and met what teachers were having next year. ". " That's nice dear". Then his dad walked in. "Hey, there's the new 6th grader. How you feeling champ?" asked Mike's dad. "Good." Mike replied. For about 5-10 minutes they chatted about Mike's last day of school. After, Mike helped with the finishing touches to the party. When they were finished they stood back to look at their hard work. There were streamers and balloons around their deck, a mini bouncy house, a play set (it was already there when they moved in) and an open field. They thought it looked awesome. Then they went to help with the cooking. Mike took out the soda bottles and other drinks to the giant cooler on the deck and put chips out on the table. The three of them were proud of themselves and exited for the party.
Around 4:30 kids started to show up. Mike greeted them and smiled. Everyone was partying like they were high schoolers, but Mike just sat there waiting for Zoey. She still didn't show up. He waited and waited, but she still didn't show. Mike was about to stop waiting and face the facts. Ding. The door bell rang. Mike rushed up to the door and didn't hesitate to open it. "Hi Zoey. Welcome to the party." said Mike excitedly. "Thanks Mike. I would of been here sooner, but we had to go get this". She held a card out to Mike. He took it from her and opened it. Mike started to read it and he grinned so you could see his gap between his teeth. "Thanks Zoey. Well come on in. Join the party." Mike said as he grinned again. The two walked out to the party. Now that Zoey showed up Mike also started to party like a high schooler. "Mike, I've been meaning to ask. How did you get that gap in your teeth?" asked the confused pale girl. A few people gather around, they wanted to know too. "OK, this is what happened. I was walking out of school, I was in 1st grade, and then someone came up behind me, started yelling at me and beat me up. It knocked out my tooth. I didn't know what I did. So that's what happened". Mike showed the gap between his teeth. The group of kids talked and eventually they spread out. Mike decided to walk under the deck for some unknown reason. He leaned on pole at stayed there for a minute then he wanted to walk and talk to some more people, but his shirt was stuck on a nail. He didn't know and kept walking.
Just then his shirt was ripped off. Mike's eyes bulged and was taking a huge breath. No one saw.......again, but this time a tan girl with high black hair saw him. Her name was Anne Maria. She walked up cautiously and said "Mike," he looked up "I saw you over here taking a deep breath and eyes bulging. Are you OK?". "Mike" just looked at Anne Maria. He smiled and winked. "Hey, babe. What's up? Name's Vito". Anne Maria smiled and giggled. The two flirted for a while. Zoey was walking around talking and hanging out with everyone, then she noticed something that turned her good mood to sadness and tears. She saw the half naked Mike flirting with Anne Maria. Her eyes started to tear up. Her friend, Amber came up behind her. "Hey Zoey". Amber saw Zoey's eyes. "Hey what's the matter, Zoey?" asked Amber, curiously. Zoey lifted her shaky hand and pointed at Mike. He was still flirting with and hugging Anne Maria. Zoey covered her eyes and ran away were no one could find her. Amber felt really bad for her, so she decided to go talk to Mike. "MIKE!" yelled Amber angrily. Mike turned back to his original self and was looking more confused than ever. Mike rubbed his head as if he had a massive headache. "What happened? Why is my shirt off?" asked Mike in an irritating voice. "Oh, don't play stupid Vito" replied Anne Maria. Vito? Who was this Vito? "Who's Vito? My name's Mike". "As funny as this is, Mike you should tell your parents about what ever just happened". "OK" Mike said nervously.
OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! That took forever. It took even longer than my last two to write combined. I just hope it doesn't take as long to write the next one. Anyway, What will Mike do about his problem? Will he be OK? It will all be on the next chapter-
Mike's Discoveries- Chapter 4- Manitoba Smith.
