After we had done our important assignments and tests, the teachers thought it would be nice to reward us. How considerate of them! They had planned for us to go on a school camping trip to this place surrounded by a forest. ...That's not really that different to where we live now but it will still be nice. It is a little different though. It's in the heart of a forest!
On Monday morning, we all woke up early to get there. We were going there by a bus the school had arranged. Our homegroup teacher, Miss Loveheart, will be joining us along with Mrs Puppington and Mr Smith. We got to school and after some preparations we were off. I'm honestly surprised that we are all here. The whole class is here! It's nice for us to all be together like this.
Anyway, back to the trip... We hadn't really done anything yet. We had been in the bus almost the whole time - we did stop for lunch somewhere. How far away is this place!? Most of us had gotten pretty restless. Aqua sat next to me squirming in his seat while Amelia and Purry behind us had ran out of things to talk about.
"Ugh, this is taking forever!" Purry complained.
"I know right! I think I've got a cramp in my leg..." I replied.
"I'm sure it won't be much longer", Amelia squeaked. "Right?"
"Let's play I Spy or something. Or else I might fall asleep..." Aqua yawned. And so we did. We didn't have any good games though. They wasn't anything really interesting outside and even if there was, we passed it quite quickly.
After half an hour, the bus was turning into some place new. Are we finally at our destination!? The place we had turned into had lush green grass and few small buildings. There was also a quite long building among them. Then the bus stopped and the teachers stood up.
"Alright, everyone get your stuff and move quickly but quietly out of the bus. We're here!" Mr Smith said.
"Finally!" I heard someone shout from the back of the bus that I recognised as Yang. We all climbed out with our backpacks. Finally, I can stretch my legs! The sun was high in the sky but thanks to the trees all around us, it wasn't in our faces. We looked around the camp in amazement. Huh, pretty nice!
"Aw, what? No reception?" Purry hissed beside me with her phone out. At the sound of that, most of us got our phones out. She was right, there was no reception. Many complained and grumbled.
"Calm down everyone! There is no need to be using your phone when you're having fun!" Miss Loveheart said.
"No, Miss, you don't understand!" I wailed.
"Shush, now. There is not a need for a phone here. But if you do need one there is one in the kitchen area but only for emergencies", Mrs Puppington nodded.
"Speaking of which, I would like to welcome you to Forestheart camp! Now I expect you all to leave the facilities here clean as other people also use this place. Like most of the time there are some rules you must follow", Mr Smith said. "Miss Loveheart? Would you like to take over?"
"Oh, uh, yes! Well, lights out at 8 and you should sleep at that point. We want you up and ready for breakfast at 6." As soon as she said that, there were some murmuring among us.
"Aw, really? I sleep in you know..." I heard Aqua whisper.
"It seems hard but I'm sure you can all do it!" Miss Loveheart concluded her statement.
"Now then, let's show you around, shall we?" Mr Smith said. He pointed out the kitchen area which is the long building we saw. There were also two cabins for us all, one for girls and one for boys. Then we could pack our stuff away and choose our beds.
"See ya later, I suppose", I waved to Amelia before she left to her cabin.
"Yep! But we're not far!" she grinned and trotted off in the direction all the girls were going. Now that all the girls are gone, I realised something. Man, is it just me or is there hardly any guys here? There's just the 6 of us plus Grapefruit! Grapefruit was forced to be with us boys as there's no way they are getting a cabin for themselves. And, uh, also because according to school they are a boy.
I sighed and I followed Mr Smith and the others to our cabin. We stepped inside to be greeted by rows of bunk beds. Looks like there's enough for all of us here! Just as well, really. At the back I could see the bathroom. It looks relatively clean...
"Alright boys, here we are! I expect you all to behave. Wanna show off to those girls, right?" he said. We fell silent and Aqua awkwardly coughed. "Hmm, well... Choose your bunks and when you're done met up with us all in the center. You can pair up with the bunks but one person per bed. No funny business!" Then Mr Smith left.
"What was that about?" Jingle asked when he was out of earshot.
"I have no idea. Anyway, Jingle, wanna share a bunk with me?" Spookymoon turned to his friend with a smile.
"Sure! This one looks pretty good!" Jingle said, sprinting forward to the bunk closest to the door. Spookymoon nodded and went over to where he was.
"Me and Aqua have this one!" I shouted, slapping the bunk right next to Spookymoon and Jingle. "But I'm on top."
"That's what she said", Ayo whispered to Maxwell. His reply was a confused head tilt.
"Ayo, my dearest friend!" Grapefruit shouted, making the two jump and put their paws around Ayo. "Let's get that one at the back!"
"Don't touch me", was Ayo's cold response as he dropped Grapefruit back on the floor. Surprisingly enough, he didn't really complain about sharing with them.
"I guess I'll take this one. ...On my own." Maxwell said with a hint of sadness as he dropped his bags on the bed.
"It's alright, Maxwell! We are all still here!" I grinned, now sitting on my bed I had chosen. Once we were all settled, we decided to investigate the cabin before joining the others. The bathroom was bigger than I expected. The tiles were a nice white and looked like they were polished often. The showers were also quite big and there was enough for at least half of us to have a shower all at once. Once we were done, we all stepped outside and met back up with the girls and teachers.
On the grassy path, sat most of the girls, including Amelia and Purry. Some were still coming over it looks like. Aqua and I went over to sit next to them.
"Hey girls, what's your cabin like?" Aqua asked.
"It's alright. Nice and cozy", Amelia giggled.
"It's awfully dusty!" Purry spat. "Mewtilda also found a spider on her bunk!"
"Oh... Sounds like you had an interesting experience. Ours is pretty okay, I think! There are no spiders I can tell you that", I laughed. Purry rolled her eyes.
"It's not that bad..." Amelia shrugged.
Eventually, we were all here and it was time to do some activities before the end of the day. We were separated into groups of three, each group going with one of the teachers. Mrs Puppington had arranged a scavenger hunt, Mr Smith was going cave exploring and Miss Loveheart was going hiking. My friends and I were going with Miss Loveheart along with Ayo, Shaggy, Omnom and Chocolate Beats. During our time here we were going to remain in the same groups but switch teacher. The other groups left via buses and we stayed behind at camp.
"Alright, everyone! We are going hiking up this path right over there!" Miss Loveheart said, pointing to a sandy path and then beckoning us to follow her. Hiking, huh? Sounds fun! We trekked up the sandy path. To be honest, it seemed quite even at the start. But it just kept going up and up!
"You know, I like to go hiking in my spare time", Shaggy announced as we walked up the hill.
"Oh really? Sounds fun!" Omnom replied.
"Have you ever been here before?" Questioned CB, blowing her dirty blonde hair out of her eyes.
"Nope!" It also LOOKED like Shaggy liked to go hiking. She wasn't running out of breath and had a skip in her step. The rest of us were panting!
"You can do it, guys! We're nearly at the top!" Miss Loveheart's words of encouragement echoed throughout the forest path. Oh yes! Please let it be over soon! At last, I could see a bright light. We had made it to the top of the hill.
"Ah, so pretty!" Purry's yellow eyes sparkled.
"Here we are! Let's stop for a rest. Feel free to look around but be careful!" Miss Loveheart said.
"You can see the whole town and beyond up here!" Aqua gasped in amazement.
"You can even see the whole of the forest", I added. Shaggy had trotted forward to the edge of the cliff and gotten her friends to follow her as well. Ayo was also looking out at the horizon.
"Let's get closer to the edge. We might be able to see more there", Amelia suggested. We nodded and made our way to where the rest were. Woah, it's even prettier here!
"It's a long way down", Ayo whispered, who was right beside me. That's the only thing you're going to comment on?
"I suggest you don't jump off then", I harshly said.
"I wasn't planning on it..." After that, he walked over to where Miss Loveheart stood. I shrugged it off and continued admiring the scene in front of us.
"Okay, guys and girls. It's about time we headed back. But this time we'll take a different route." Miss Loveheart suddenly said. I groaned louder then I wanted it to.
"Don't worry, Ricky!" Amelia squeaked. "It's always quicker the way back down." Yeah, she's right. And so we walked all the way back down.
When we got to the bottom everybody else had come back. The teachers then told us we can do whatever we want until it's time for dinner. As long as we stayed out of trouble, we're good. Amelia and Aqua had brought some board games for us all so that's what we did. The rest either explored the campgrounds, played with a Frisbee Jingle brought or did their own kinda thing. Before long, it was time for dinner. We were all herded into the kitchen area and we sat on a long table. Dinner was delicious! After dinner we also had time to muck around but eventually we were told to get ready for bed and stuff.
Aqua and I had just said goodbye to Amelia and Purry for the night. He then suddenly let out a yawn.
"Maybe it's for the best we get ready for bed..."
"Yeah, I guess", I nodded in reply. We then entered the boys cabin. Spookymoon, Jingle and Grapefruit had supposedly gone for a shower while Ayo tried to get his phone to work in frustration. Maxwell was nowhere to be seen but he soon padded in.
"There's no use in trying to get your phone to work!" Maxwell said to Ayo. "Trust me, I already tried with Penny and Luka!"
"Yeah, whatever." He replied and threw his phone on his pillow.
"Well, I don't know about you guys but I'm gonna take a shower." I declared and looked through my suitcase for my things.,
"Me too!" Aqua squeaked.
"Sure, go ahead. I'll wait", Maxwell nodded. We said a brief goodbye and then went to the showers. Jingle was getting out just as we arrived. His hair was much curlier than it usually is.
"What a nice hairstyle", I said in a joking manner.
"Yeah, this happens often", he replied with a half smile. After that conversation, I stepped into my shower. Aah~ Nice and warm after a long day~.
Eventually, all but Ayo had been cleaned. It was getting to the end of day one. We all sat around mine and Aqua's bunk having a chat. Maxwell sat next to Aqua and was going on about his attempts to find phone reception.
"There really is none! Like no where!"
"Oh well. It might do us some good without any technology", Spookymoon said.
"I don't even have a phone so I don't care", Grapefruit shrugged.
"Woah!" Jingle stood up in amazement. "You don't have a phone!? How do you cope!?" They then went on explaining. Something along the lines that he can cope without and doesn't need one? I'm pretty sure they added a cheeky and sly remark in there. Classic Grapefruit.
Suddenly, the lights went out and we heard a scream from where the showers were. A black out? That was sudden... We heard some running from the direction of the showers and then Ayo appeared from the corner, dripping wet and with a towel around his body.
"Who turned the lights off!?"
"No one did!" Maxwell was the first to speak. "They just went out all of a sudden!"
"A black out, huh? That's weird. Whatever, I'll continue my shower. ...With a flash-light." He said and then spun back around with a torch.
"I wonder why the lights went out", Aqua said. I could hardly see anyone in the dark!
"Yeah, all the other buildings still have light!" Jingle said as he looked at a window.
"Maybe there's something wrong with the power box here?" Spookymoon suggested.
"Or maybe it's ghosts!" Grapefruit shouted.
"G-ghosts?" Maxwell's voice quivered as he tried to hide under a pillow.
"No, they're just messing with you", I rolled my eyes. Spookymoon stood up and I could hear him stretching his wings out.
"Well, I'm going to check the power box just in case."
"I'll come with you!" Jingle squeaked. The two walked outside with torches and left the rest of us behind. We stumbled in the darkness trying to find torches. I found mine at the bottom of my bag. That would be right... I carefully made my way down to the bottom of the bunk.
"What now?" Aqua asked.
"I guess we just wait. Spookymoon and Jingle might sort it out", I said. And so we sat with our faces illuminated by torch light and resumed conversation. We patiently waited for the lights to come back. But it was kinda cool with the lights out! Like we are on a secret mission and we need to conceal our selves in the darkness. Ayo came back from the showers too.
"How was your shower?" Aqua happily asked.
"Oh..." Aqua looked at me with a defeated look. Sometimes I wish most of our conversations with Ayo lasted more than three sentences... Just as I was about to change topic, the lights went back on.
"We have light!" Maxwell declared with a shout. Jingle rushed back through the door.
"Yep, that did it!" He shouted, probably to Spookymoon. He trotted in soon after.
"Phew, the lights are back. We don't have to do things in the dark now", he smiled. The door swung open again and Mr Smith was there.
"Boys, get your last things done for bed then turn the lights off."
Aw, really? They just came back on! The look on everyone's faces seemed to show they were thinking that too. We unwillingly got ready for bed. With a sigh, Jingle turned the lights back off. We then all got into bed ready for a good nights sleep...
I'm not having a good nights sleep. None of us are, in fact we're all still up. The whole time since we went to bed there was at least something keeping us up. And I'm not just talking about the trees or whatever from outside. We could hear voices? Echoes? I don't know man, something like that.
"D-do you think it's the ghosts Grapefruit was t-talking about?" Maxwell whimpered.
"There's no ghosts! Like I said, they are just messing with you!" I told him.
"Yeah, it's alright, Maxwell. There is a logical explanation to this", Spookymoon smartly said.
"Or maybe me saying that earlier summoned them!?" Grapefruit shouted with a grin.
"Yeah, that sounds like something you'd do", Ayo said.
"Shut up, Ayo! No one cares what you have to say!" They then promptly banged the bunk bed that they shared.
"Hey, that's rude!" Jingle barked. Grapefruit blew a raspberry. After they did that, we heard one of those voices again. This time however, it was followed by some scratching. Maxwell screamed in fright.
"No..." Aqua groaned. "I just wanna sleep! I waited all day for a warm bed..."
"That's it, I'm checking this out", I huffed and got out of bed. I hopped off the ladder on the bunk bed and walked to the window that was near where Maxwell slept. Or would have slept since we hadn't gotten to sleep at all. All the other guys were also getting up. I mean, we might as well do something right? Aqua turned on a torch.
"Can you see anything?" he asked.
"Hmm..." All I could see was darkness. There were a few lights on but I still couldn't see much. "Nope, not really."
"There might be something round the back." Spookymoon said, who had just come up next to me. He strained his head to have a look but he had no luck. He walked back to his bed and picked up a torch in his mouth.
"I'll go have a look outside", he said.
"Okay, good luck!" Jingle kindly said.
"D-don't get eaten!" Maxwell squeaked. Spookymoon slightly rolled his eyes. He padded to the door and went to turn the door handle. But... He just stood there knocking it around! The torch fell from his open mouth and clanged on the floor.
"What!?" We all shouted.
"Did the teachers do that? Why would they do that?" Aqua said with a raised eyebrow.
"I don't think it was the teachers..." I replied.
"The ghost! The ghost did it! It locked us in so it can eat us!" Maxwell wailed.
"There's no ghost!" I shouted for the LAST TIME.
"Enough about that. Did anyone hear the door lock?" Jingle asked us all above Maxwell's whimpering. We all shook our heads.
"Who would've locked us in?"
"It must have been sometime after Mr Smith told us to turn the lights off", Ayo spoke up. "I don't know who or why but..."
"Either way, we need to get to the bottom of this." Spookymoon said, determination written all over his face.
"Oh, a mystery! I always wanted to be like a detective!" I squealed.
"First things first, let's find a way out. Since we don't know who locked us in they may have some bad intentions..."
"We're going to die!?" Maxwell shrieked.
"No!" We all shouted that at him this time. Jingle went over to the light switch. He said that we might as well have them on if we are going to be exploring around the cabin. He switched them on but... Nothing. Of course they're not working...
We had looked in every nook and cranny of the cabin. There were no other doors so we have to go through the windows. Jingle and Spookymoon were trying to open one in the main room but it wouldn't budge. Grapefruit suggested we break it open but Spookymoon thinks we will get in trouble. While this was happening, Maxwell hid under his bed covers. Then we heard Aqua squeak.
"Hey, that window looks like it can open!" We all ran to where he heard him. When I say all I mean all of us BUT Maxwell. Aqua was in the bathroom, pointing to a small window.
"It's pretty small", I said.
"And high up. How do we get in there?" Jingle asked.
"I think I saw a storage cupboard over there. There might be a stool or something", Ayo told us. Spookymoon nodded and went to where Ayo said it was. He opened it up and had a look inside. He found brooms, mops and various other cleaning supplies. But finally...
"Ah, a step stool! So, who's going to go through the window?" We fell slient. I certainly don't wanna go through there! Who knows what's outside!
"It will have to be someone small. I can't fit in there", Ayo was the first to speak.
"Neither can I", I shook my head. The smallest of us is Maxwell. I don't really see him going outside through a window considering how he's reacting already.
"In that case, I elect Aqua", Grapefruit announced.
"But you and Jingle are shorter than me..."
"Nope, it's decided. You're going through the window", they said and pushed him towards the stool that Spookymoon placed under the window.
"I, uh, will go comfort Maxwell", Jingle barked and then bounded away. Aqua reluctantly agreed on going outside. I stood on the stool and lifted him up to the window. He opened it up and neatly fit through. ...Too neatly.
"Agh, I'm stuck!" He wailed while kicking his little feet.
"Maybe it's because you're too fat", Grapefruit shrugged.
"No, you're not! Grapefruit's just being annoying." I rolled my eyes and then Aqua kicked me in the face on accident. Eventually he made it through and he dropped onto the ground on the other side. I slid a torch through the window to give it to him. It made a loud thud as it dropped on his head.
"Now that you're there, can you open the front door for us?" Spookymoon called out to him.
"Sure!" We heard him walk away and we rushed for the front door. Maxwell seemed to recover and didn't seem to notice us leave the bathroom.
"I'm not afraid of any ghosts anymore! I'm ready to be the hero of the action film I deserve...! Huh, where did everyone go?"
"Uh, we're over here..." I said. He turned around in embarrassment.
"I knew that. I was just testing you..." He said as his cheeks were now a rosy red. The door suddenly opened and Aqua was there grinning and turning some keys in his paw. He said they were just left in front of door. Wow, that's easier than I expected.
"Did you see anything out there? Something... Suspicious?" Spookymoon asked.
"Well, I did see something... But it was too dark and by the time I shone the torch on it, it was too late."
"Huh. Well, I'll check the power box again. Jingle you can come and keep watch. The rest of you... Get some rest perhaps?" With that, both Spookymoon and Jingle went outside. Aqua put the keys in a spot where we could all see it. No ones gonna steal that now! Aqua, Maxwell, Ayo and I immediately went back to bed.
We were all tucked in and were having a somewhat peaceful sleep. Except... Spookymoon and Jingle had been out for nearly half an hour. Oh well, they are probably fine. I rolled over and closed my eyes.
BANG! A loud bang followed by some groans echoed throughout the cabin and Maxwell screamed.
"Not again!" I shouted and sat upright.
"Aw, come on..." Aqua moaned and rubbed his sleepy eyes. We were all awake and alert again. Gee, mysterious person tormenting us. We just wanna sleeeep!
"W-Where's Spookymoon and Jingle? Shouldn't they be back?" Maxwell said between heavy breathes.
"Why don't we check on them? I mean, we've got nothing better to do..." Ayo suggested.
"Excellent idea!" Grapefruit's purple eyes sparkled. "But I will pretend that YOU didn't come up with it." Ayo rolled his eyes and threw Grapefruit out of bed and on to the floor. The small dog yelped as they flew through the air.
"Um, lets go outside..." I said and tried to ignore Grapefruit's squirming body on the ground.
"I'll take the key with me just in case!" Aqua squeaked, who now had it in his paws. We all went out with torches. We turned the corner to where the power box is. But there was no Spookymoon or Jingle. All that was there was the torch they brought with them. They weren't even anywhere near the cabin.
"That's odd... Where did they go?" I thought out loud.
"Maybe they got bored and left us behind", Grapefruit said, blowing their hair out of their face.
"Or what if... Someone took them!" Maxwell shouted.
"...Who would've took them?" Ayo said as he leaned against the building.
"The... Ghost!" Again with that!? We all thought Maxwell was just nuts so we went back in. Those two... They will be back... Even if they're not we can tell the teachers the next morning. The sounds continued which was odd because we saw literally nothing outside.
"Oh, that's it! I'm going out there and seeing this for myself!" Aqua shouted and slammed the door shut as he left.
"Uh... Good luck?" I quietly said.
"What do we do?" Maxwell asked with sweet unblinking eyes.
"We sleep that's what", Ayo snapped.
"Okay, no need to be so angry at me..."
"Sorry, I guess I'm angry because I had no sleep. Not that that's anything different..." Ayo yawned while he turned away from Maxwell.
"You're only angry because you haven't cut yourself in the last 24 hours", Grapefruit smirked. I'm... Not gonna comment on that. Ayo then pulled him by the scruff on his neck.
"Grapefruit, you better shut your trap or I'll shove a knife so far up your ass it will come out your eyes!!" I'm not gonna comment on that either.
"Woah, oh, oh! Calm down there! I was only joking."
"It wasn't a very funny joke!"
"Ah, ha, ha... It was to me."
Ayo growled at them while they stuck their tongue out. Maxwell looked on in shock. Just in case a fight was going to start, I broke them apart from each other. This is meant to be a fun school trip! We don't want to call a hospital now or something, do we? Then... We heard a scream. Aqua's scream, to be exact. We were tense and frozen in place. Was Aqua taken too?
But the door flew open and he landed inside on the floor. "I... I saw them...! Th-they had S-Spookymoon and... Jingle!" he panted.
"Who? Who did you see?" Maxwell asked. I'm surprised he didn't think it was a ghost. Ha!
"What?" We were all confused.
"Wait, are you saying that it has been the girls tormenting us?" I said.
"Y-yes! They had Spookymoon and Jingle captured and they threatened to take me too!" he wailed. Wow, I'm shocked. They planned all that just to mess with us? I wonder how long they had that planned...
"Well, what are we sitting around for? Let's go get those girls!" Grapefruit shouted and already ran off. I shrugged and the rest of us followed them.
We turned the corner of the cabin to find... Spookymoon and Jingle in the hands of Charlotte and Yang respectively.
"Oh, hi guys", Jingle said.
"Hey! What are you girls doing? Unhand them now!" I yelled at them.
"Nope!" Yang said with a cheeky grin.
"I-is there more of you?" Maxwell asked, hiding behind Ayo.
"Why of course! We are all in on it", Charlotte explained. "Isn't that right, girls?" From behind the cabin came everyone else. Every single other girl here. Even Amelia and Purry!
"Okay, okay, okay... We've all had our fun and games but now just leave us alone." Grapefruit stepped forward. "Oh, and give back Spookymoon and Jingle, I guess."
"...Is that how much you care about us?" Spookymoon sniffed and wiped a single tear out of his eye.
"Hmm..." Charlotte was in deep thought as if like she needed to think long and hard about this. "Nope! It's fun annoying you guys!"
"B-but why?" Aqua asked her.
"Well, we just felt like bothering you guys and keeping you up all night. We thought it would be funny, you see! Except we weren't really counting on you guys finding out it was us so... Things got a bit over the top now", she shrugged.
"Then leave us alone and set those two free!" I shouted.
"Wanna fight for them?"
"Aw, that's boring", she said and titled her head to side. She had her arms around Spookymoon and nearly choked the poor guy. Meanwhile, some of the girls were mumbling to each other. Maxwell was giving uneasy glances to us all.
"So, Charlotte what you're saying is if we fight you, you'll leave us alone and give Spookymoon and Jingle back...?" Ayo said who was leaning against the building again.
"Pretty much, yeah. But Ayo sweetie I don't think you'll stand much of a chance~" she purred. Was that a threat?
"Ayo! We don't want to fight them!" Aqua angrily whispered to him. He shrugged.
"Everyone! What are you doing up in the middle of the night? You should be in your beds!" We heard a voice call out to us. We turned around and standing under a dim light in pretty pink pajamas was Miss Loveheart. Mrs Puppington and Mr Smith were next to her. Oh crap...
"Don't tell me you're all starting trouble!?" Mr Smith growled. Charlotte and Yang immediately let go of Spookymoon and Jingle.
"N-no sir!" Charlotte squeaked, putting on her innocent face.
"Alright, back to bed you lot. We will discuss this more in the morning." Many of us immediately walked back to their cabins.
"Wait, we still don't have working lights!" Spookymoon pointed out.
"Don't worry, I can fix it!" Shaggy grinned, screwdrivers and wrenches in her paws. With Spookymoon's help, she fixed the power box. Now, we can finally sleep in peace. But, I feel like we need to ask the girls a few things in the morning as well...
The next morning, I was woken up by someone knocking on the door. It then swung open revealing Mr Smith. "Rise and shine boys! Get yourselves ready for the morning and then meet up at the dining hall." We all sat up with tired eyes. Once he was sure he were all up and awake, he left.
"How much sleep did you guys get last night?" Jingle sniffed.
"Not much..." I sighed.
"We should get ready though. There is no time for sleeping in..." Spookymoon said and unwillingly got out of bed. I stretched my arms with a yawn and then I also got out of bed. Aqua looked he was still asleep but he soon shot upright.
"Uh... Those girls are going to pay for this..." he yawned. I laughed and made my way to bathrooms to get changed. Maxwell had his nose in his suitcase looking for something. He then proudly got a hairbrush out.
"Oh, and just to let you guys know, I wasn't scared. I was pretending the whole time! I'm practicing for my horror film debut", he said.
"Were you now?" I giggled. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a lie.
"It was really convincing, Maxwell!" Jingle said with a smile. Meanwhile, Grapefruit had crawled out of bed and was looking at us with a smirk. I guess they also realised that Maxwell was telling a lie. Ayo had also sat up at this point. Anyway, we all got ready for the day.
With Aqua in my stride, we walked on over to the dining hall. Some of us were already there. Amelia and Purry sat at the table talking to each other. We sat down next to them.
"Oh, good morning you two! You look tired", Amelia giggled.
"Gee, I wonder why", I rolled my eyes. Purry then started laughing.
"Ahaha! I can't believe you made Aqua go through that tiny window!"
"I'll get you girls back for this. Mark my words", Aqua's eyes narrowed.
"Anyway, I wonder whats for breakfast?" Amelia squeaked. All were here now so we could have breakfast. The teachers gave us a lecture about last night. But they don't know what really happened... None of us said anything, though. They might not even believe us. After breakfast we were allowed some free time for a little bit. Aqua and I asked Amelia and Purry some questions.
"At first I was against it", Amelia said. "But it got fun after a while s-so... I guess I enjoyed it."
"Oh, I see. You went all out for a little trick on us, eh?" I said.
"I'm just wondering how you stole the keys", Aqua yawned.
"Oh, that's easy!" Purry said. "Mewtilda put an invisibility spell on herself and went in when you guys weren't looking."
"She can do that? Impressive! Though I wish she would use it for some good", I laughed. Then we went on and did some activities for the day. We were with Mrs Puppington first!
After a couple of days, our school camping trip came to a close. The girls didn't torment us at night anymore, also. Well I think it was pretty fun! We did things we wouldn't normally do and also it's not like we got any school work. I mean, the girls did give us a little bit of a fright the first night but that was also an exciting experience. However... Us boys and Grapefruit are still trying to think of something to get them back...
