I feel so bad, I keep on not proof-reading. Well, sorry I am very busy. Being back at school sucks, especially when u have to catch up on everything you've missed out on for a week and a few days :| Not one of my best chapters, but try to enjoy it anyway XD
The bus slowly arrived to a stop as it parked in the Graver's Forest car park that stood below the tall, giant forest that was standing right beside it. Everyone rushed quickly, trying to get off the bus into the cool, fresh air that awaited us outside. Getting off the bus, I felt the coldness of the chilly air brush against my face as I stepped down the steps with my group of vrienden following behind.
'I never knew it could get quite cool here,' I zei jumping off the last step that led to the bus and landed on the car park's concrete.
'Me either, I wish I bought a jumper of a jacket,' Zoey told me, her arms wrapping around her cold body. At that moment, I was wearing a thick, blue jumper that I remembered to wear. I smiled, taking off the jumper and handing it to the red-head.
'Here, u can have it,' I zei holding the soft jumper to Zoey with a smile. Zoey gave a grin back and asked 'A-are u sure? You'll get cold too!'
'Don't worry about it. I don't mind,' I replied. Zoey gracefully took the jumper out of my hands and put it over the top, boven of her body.
'Thanks so much Mike! u really are the best friend ever,' she replied with a giggle.
'Thanks! Same with you,' I answered back in a happy tone. I was so glad she was happy. Seeing her smile with a grin on her face always makes me excited inside. The problem was, when will I have the courage to ask her out?
'Alright, everyone! Listen please!' our Geography teacher boomed out the top, boven of his lungs. Everyone in the car park stopped chatting which quickly died down, realizing the teacher was about to announce something.
'Ok! Today for a hike in the forest, we'll get into three groups. Please do this quickly!' he yelled to the group of teens. Everyone moved around, like a bunch of angry birds wanting to be in a group with their buddies. Zoey and I looked around, trying to find the rest of our vrienden when we spotted B.
'Over here,' B zei silently gesturing us to follow him. We arrived in a group with a bunch of our vrienden as well as different types of unknown people in our grade.
'Hmm... something's wrong,' Dawn announced to us. We all gave her confused looks as she closed her eyes, forcing very hard to think of something that was wrong.
'Something evil is afoot,' Dawn told us, opening her eyes. Everyone gave confused glances to each other, wondering what she was talking about.
'What do u mean about evil?' Sam asked shrugging his shoulders in confusion. Turning around, I saw Stan, Lance and Scott standing there in a group looking strong among us. Behind stood Brick, who was smiling and gave us a wave.
'Now we know what u mean Dawn,' I said. When Zoey saw the three, her face got red and she jumped running towards Scott.
'Scott! Why the hell did u hurt Mike the other day?' Zoey yelled in the orange-haired teens face. Scott just smirked back and replied 'It was an accident,' Zoey swung her arm, about ready to knock Scott's socks off when Dawn and I panicked, running up to the girl. We grabbed held of her arms pulling her back before she could do anything.
'Zoey, violence isn't the answer to fight back!' Dawn said, struggling to pull Zoey back.
'Don't Zoey! It's alright, really!' I yelled and let go of the red-head. Zoey stopped wanting to stempel, punch Scott's face in and gave a frustrated glare to him in return instead of hurting him. The group of three started to crack up laughing, holding their bellies trying to stop while Brick just stood behind not sure what to do. I gasped again, turning into my grumpy old man personality.
'You dang kids! u stop being mean now, u hear?' I yelled in my old voice. They all stopped laughing and looked at each other not sure of what to do next. I gasped turning back to my original self and sighed. Why did my personalities come out at the wrong time!
'Alright group, listen up! We'll be doing a hike through the forest, as well as writing different things down on your clip-boards,' our Geography teacher said.
'Yah, my great great uncle invented clip-boards and great, great, great, great grandfather invented hikes through the forest,' a quite chubby girl with brown hair announced to everyone. Cameron rolled his eyes and replied with 'Unfortunately, that is quite impossible. Hiking through forests have been around forever now,' The girl and Cameron continued on arguing while our Geography teacher just shook his head in frustration.
'Ok, Staci and Cameron please calm down,' our teacher boomed loudly to the two. Staci and Cameron stopped arguing with each other, listening to what our teacher had to say.
'Now, let's start our hike through the forest,' he announced, walking towards a path which led into the dark and gloomy woods. Everyone followed behind him, in one straight line. I shivered as we brushed through a bunch of trees, sparkling with tiny drops of rain still left from over-night. The branches whipped past my skin as we continued squeezing through the trees, trying to get inside the forest. When almost getting into the middle of the woods, I walked past a boom with a large branch poking out. The branch got a hold of my shirt, so when I walked further into the woods, my overhemd, shirt got pulled off from my body. I gasped... turning into Vito.
'Where's the fricken' sun?' I yelled in my different accent. Zoey turned around and stopped walking in front of me, her face confused as ever.
'It's Vito! Come on, let's put your overhemd, shirt back on,' Zoey calmly told me, reaching over to the overhemd, shirt that hung from the branch. I pushed the unknown girl out of my way and yelled 'Hey, u don't tell me what to do pasty!' The girls face became concerned, looking at her pale skin and asked 'What are u talking about Mike?' Our group headed further into the forest, moving further and further away from sight as they walked into the distance but a small bunch of people who I had no clue who they were stayed behind with me.
'Mike, put your overhemd, shirt back on,' a small boy with glasses told me, grabbing my blue overhemd, shirt from the branch. He tried putting it over the top, boven of my head, but I struggled to get away from the unknown kid.
'Get away from me!-' I yelled, that was until my overhemd, shirt got put over my body. I gasped and turned back to my own self, my hair back up in its messy state and my six-pack disappeared off my skinny body.
'Huh? What happened?' I asked, misinforming what had happened. A light-bulb lit above my head, as I remembered part of what had happened previously. Vito kicked in. I hated him so much! He's what made many of the girls run away from my child-hood.
*Flashback jaar 5*
Standing on my tip-toes, I peered over the fence into next-door's backyard. Grabbing onto the edge of the fence, I pushed myself up further to see what was going on. A family had just moved in volgende door and I wondered if someone there would become my friend. Fantasizing about if the neighbour would become my new friend; I never noticed that a girl stepped out of the house and run over to the near-by pool that lay in the backyard. Shaking my head, I saw the girl almost about to dive into the fresh, blue water. She had long blonde hair, that was tied up into a large pony-tail and she looked around the same age as me.
'Hi! What's your name?' the girl asked, running over to the fence. I gave her a goofy grin, tonen off my gap in my teeth.
'I'm Mike!' I replied, trying to stand up meer so I could see a full view of her.
'Nice to meet you, I'm Bridgette,' she answered back casually putting her hand out so I could shake her hand.
'Hi Bridgette! Did u verplaats here?' I asked again, accepting the shake. She gave a nod, a smile forming across her face as well mine. Maybe this was the chance to finally become vrienden with someone? Letting go of her hand, I lost balance of the edge of the fence making me fall and collapse onto my back. I groaned in annoyance and I heard a gasp from Bridgette and she asked 'Are u alright Mike?'
'Yeah, I'm fine,' I replied back rubbing my head which had hit the ground hard. Sitting up, I never noticed the overhemd, shirt grab onto the boom that stood right volgende to the fence. The overhemd, shirt ripped off my body, making my hair slick back and my 6 pack appear. Climbing onto the side of the fence, I gave her a flirtatious smile.
'Hey baby, u going for a swim?' I asked Bridgette. She stepped back a little, her face seemed blank.
'Where u going now? Getting a drink because your way to HOT?' I told the blonde haired girl, raising my eyebrows and making sure she understood how I meant about hot. Bridgette stepped back some more, cocking her head and zei 'I have to go now. I'll see u some other time?' She quickly dashed from her spot and ran inside her house, her face spread with fear. As hard as I could, I was finally able to fight of Vito with my overhemd, shirt off. Turning back to my old self, I quickly grabbed my overhemd, shirt and slid it back on.
I ruined it, again.
Filling myself with shame, I punched my arm making sure to hurt Vito who was inside my body. It still hurt me, but at least it hurt Vito as well.
'Stupid Vito! Why do these personalities always ruin it for me!' I yelled as I smacked my arms and punched my legs, leaving behind large purple bruises. Leaning against the fence, I slid down and landed on the ground. Crouching into a ball, I hug my legs and buried my face into my knees as tears ran down my face uncontrollably making me sniff loudly.
'Can't I please at least have one friend?' I asked myself in a silent tone. The only sound I heard was the wind from the trees as they swayed against each other.
At least one friend?
I growled in frustration yelling out 'Stupid Vito,' While I was mumbling under my breath, I noticed Cameron looking around nervously.
'Guys... where's the rest of our group?' Cameron asked with concern, his eyes darting around the trees which grouped around us. Zoey, Cameron, Dawn, B, Sam and I all looked around in annoyance to find that our group has some-what disappeared.
'Oh-no! We're lost!' Cameron whimpered, breathing heavily in and out.
'Calm down Cameron! Geez,' Sam yelled at the tiny nerd.
'We could be stuck here... who knows! That means u won't be able to play a video game for quite a while,' Cameron pointed out to the gamer. Sam's face dropped with a huge frown and he started panicking.
'No! I need my video games!' Sam screamed running around our area in the woods like a manic. I did a face palm, smacking my hand up to my face and sliding it down with annoyance.
'Cameron and Sam. Please stop running around and hyperventilating, I have a feeling they're nearby,' Dawn assured the frustrated two.
'Yeah, we'll be able to get our way out,' Zoey zei in a calm tone. Both B and I nodded in agreement. Standing right volgende to the bush, it started to shake furiously. I jumped back in shock, letting out a little scream and making myself trip over a rock that was in my way. Slamming my back against the ground, I let out a groan like I always did.
'Mike! Are u ok?' Zoey asked, running over to my side. I smiled, with a blush that appeared on my face. She looked like an angel. Her red hair was dancing with the wind, while her wide eyes were open with much concern for me. I laughed and replied with a nervous 'Y-yeeeeaaah,' Zoey grabbed onto my arm, trying to pull me up off the dirty ground that I landed on. Rubbing my back, a bunch of people emerged from the bushes into our little circle. Out of the bushes was, terribly, Scott, Stan, Lance, Brick and surprisingly Izzy.
'Hey! What are u guys doing here?' Zoey angered up.
'Dude, chill out!' Scott said, stepping back in case Zoey did something.
'We got lost. But why did we have to find you?' Stan asked us with frustration, wagging his finger in my face, my eyes following it.
'Hello guys! Glad we found you,' Brick zei with joy.
'Brick, we shouldn't be happy to see them,' Lance sighed with annoyance, leaning over to Brick and saying that to his face. Brick nodded nervously and breathed a sigh of relief. Standing behind them, Izzy sprung out and cart-wheeled across the dirt.
'Hey! Watcha guys doin'?' Izzy asked with giggles.
'Ugh, this friend of yours was really annoying us,' Scott told us. Izzy kept on jumping around, bouncing up and down on the spot still giggling. A cold breeze ran across all of our skin, making many of us shiver in the process.
'Well, we need to stick together to find the way back,' B answered to everyone in a quiet tone.
'Fine. But, I'm not following your orders,' Lance said, especially eyeing me. I stepped back again, making sure he wasn't going to do anything. When was this revenge thing going to happen? Looking towards the ground, a lone hat rested there against the tree, the wind flapping across the material. It looked much like a cow-boy hat, which made me grin with excitement.
'Wow, this hat looks cool,' I told everyone, leaning over towards the ground. Scott and the other two started to crack up laughing.
'Sure, how cool,' Stan laughed with sarcasm being noted in his voice. I just rolled my eyes, ignoring the 3. Picking it up from the ground, I dusted it off with my hand and placed it on my head. Gasping in time with the cool wind, I turned into... u guessed it, another personality.
'Good ay mates! I'm Manitoba Smith,' I told the group with an Australian accent who looked back at me with confusion. Half of the group had realised it was my another one of my personalities but the other half, like the bullies, had blank looks across their faces.
'Stop with the act and let's go,' Scott yelled in annoyance.
'Well, alright mate! I'll lead the way,' I zei giving a wink to Scott. He looked back at me like he saw an alien taking someone away.
'No way, we're not following you!' Lance shouted.
