“What do you mean I have to come?” Jonathan said as he rushed down stairs looking for an excuse not to go to the party that he was “supposed” to go to.”I can’t go because umm I have to go…” he said mumbling in to the phone. “Ugggg fine I’ll go but only if you come with me.”
“Yes of course I will,” his friend Star said into the phone.”I always come with you.” She said in an annoyed voice.
“You don’t have to, but I would prefer it,” Jonathan said nervously. Star had been his best and only friend since first grade. Jonathan wasn’t very popular because he didn’t have many friends.
“What time are you going?” said Star.
“What do you mean?” He said, confused.
“I mean the party started at 7:30 its 8:00!” Star screamed.
“Oh no, you mean I’m 30 minutes late!”
“Yes now get over here NOW!”
“Ok ok I’ll be there in 5 minutes ok?” He said trying to calm her.
“WE DON’T HAVE 5 MINUTES!!” screamed Star
“Ok I’ll be there as quickly as possible”
“Ok fine just go fast ok?”
Jonathan Lasson was your average 17 year old nerd. He lived in a small town called Linerp in the state of Grherpdaflerp. He like most 17 year olds at the time, were in 9th grade. He loved science and rocks and minerals but unlike other 17 year olds he loved school but he didn’t like Raymond Bull. Raymond Bull, or better known as Monty, was the king of the school. But if you called him by his real name he would kill you or just be really mean to you. Sometimes you just couldn’t tell the difference.
But his sister Evelyn Bull was so much worse. She would bully and torment the people that didn’t into her dumb circle of stuck up kids that thought they were always better than everyone else. People used to say things like that the word bully was named after the bull twins or that they didn’t get in trouble because even the teachers were scared of them. Jonathan just hoped that they would not be there especially since he didn’t even want to go to this dumb party. Star was worried that Jonathan would be an introvert all his life but he wasn’t really worried about it that much.
“Ok, ok, ok.” At this point he was driving to the party. He wore an orange button up flannel with jeans and sneakers that had no tread what so ever and a worn red hoodie that he inherited from his older brother. As he pulled into the Anderson drive way he told himself it would be fun because it was an Anderson party and he’d never been to one but he had heard that they were the best parties ever.
As he walked up to the door he thought about what he was going to say “hello, hi, hello, how are you, hi, hey, yeah, yeah that’s good.” He knocked on the door and Robert Anderson opened the door.
“Hey it’s Jonathan right?”
“Yeah you must be Robert Anderson?” said in a question but was sure of it and was amazed that Robert Anderson actually knew who he was.
“The one and only. Well come on in,” he said as he opened the door up. As Jonathan walked in to party he saw Stars face light up with happiness but he was not very happy because he saw Raymond and Evelyn staring at him.
“Ugggg why do they have to be here?”
“Because they’re king and queen bees they have to be here. But isn’t it so cool that Robert’s dad is nuclear physicist?”
“What?” he asked.
“You know, a Nuclear scientist.”
“Oh ok that’s cool.”
“Yeah he has a bunch of chemicals in the back.”
“WHAT?” He said loudly because the music was turned up and you could not hear anything and soon they moved into the back so they could actually hear.
“Wow that was crazy.”
“You said it.”
“And this is why I don’t go to parties,” said Jonathan.
“Oh come on you’re having fun,” replied Star with an ‘I told you so’ look on her face
“No no I’m not” He protested all of sudden.
“What are you doing here losers?” Star and Jonathan looked and saw Raymond bull staring at them.
“Oh Monty umm hey,” Star finally gathered up the courage to say to him and then she paused.
“My brother just asked you a question Miss Asheer.” Evelyn’s voice cut through the crowd everyone stopped and stared at Jonathan and Star. Jonathan didn’t do so well under pressure
“Well are you deaf or something?” Evelyn said she was getting annoyed
“Umm well we were invited,” said Star nervously.
“Oh no no no no no no Miss. Asheer YOU were invited Mr. Cadwell was not so why is he here?”
“Umm well Robert Anderson said I could invite someone of my choice so I chose Jonathan,” she said as she gave Jonathan a sweet look.
“Oh no absolutely not when someone tells you that you can bring someone of your choice that just means they want to look good not because they actually want you to.”
“But that makes no sense.”
“Well I don’t have to do that because I’m the best and the best is the best so make him leave. Now.”
“NO.” The crowd went silent
“What did you say to me?”
“I said no.”
“Get him, Ray.”
Raymond went to get Jonathan and he ran to the back room and Raymond ran after him. As they ran, Robert screamed “get out that’s my dad’s lab!”
But before he could, Raymond smashed a bottle of chemicals on Jonathans head and he passed out. When he woke up he was at home with no memory of what happened.
“You’re awake!” Stars voice burst out.
