dont' read this You guys went from house to house. Your bags were filling. “Hey, let’s go to Clark street!” Rene said. “But we’re going to the dance,” you told her. “Yeah, but the guy there gives out BUTTERFINGERS!” she exclaimed. “I know a lady that gives out pumpkin bars too!” said Ryan. “You suppose she has fudge?” you asked him. “She has to!” he said. You guys go down Clark street. And the next street. You all sang and skateboarded in your prisoner suits and you all went from house to house. You never made it to the dance.

  1. What is your age?
  2. What is your gender?
  1. At practice you caught yourself staring at Ryan. He caught you a couple times too. After practice you got onto your bike. You were late for you bus this morning and you biked here way past the speed limit. You felt a weight jump right on the seat space behind you. You start to turn your head around. “It’s me,” you heard Ryan’s voice. Everything would be okay now. He had the pencil accessory clipped onto his pencil and it was clearly sticking out of his pocket. “GO MAXIMUM MEGATRON!” he hollered. You elbow him hard before laughing and going down the school’s hill. “FASTER! FASTER!” he would shout with his arms out like airplane wings and you guys would pass the soccer field and the soccer girls would be staring with their eyes outta their sockets. You turned your head just in time to pass a figure leaning on a tree at a distance in the field. Chris was standing there and he was watching you guys the whole time. You wondered what he was thinking. Ryan’s voice broke into your thoughts, “Hey, show me how Jerry’s doing.” Jerry had recovered and Mum hadn’t found out about the mouse yet.
  2. You brought Ryan to your room. Jerry was gone. You had a frantic search party. You even recruited your brothers. The mouse had thawed days ago but now he was gone and had left his tissue box of the cheese, sunflower seeds, and water you were feeding him. You guys gave up the search.
  3. Monday, October 30th. The last race. Here you were, standing in your Maline Middle Athletics shirt and sweatpants. Here you were, among many beating hearts, everyone going to give their all to the last race. But you were sure, your heart beat the fastest. You would make no mistake. You were trained for this. But what if… you forgot? Time was not waiting for you. “5… 4… 3… 2…” POP. A band of different colored shirts. You instantly found the girl. Or maybe she found you. But your legs were pumping hard, whisking up tornadoes of dirt. She was too. Her breathing was steady. Her pulse practically matched yours. Only she was more confident and you were frantic. The faster runners passed you guys. You guys passed the slower runners. You guys broke through a band of girls running. You guys never looked at each other. The dirt road changed its course onto grass. Bits of grass flew up as you churned through. You weren’t going fast. “Come on… faster…” you were thinking to yourself but you were scared that you would tire out. You were risking it. You went just a little bit faster. That only kept up for half a minute. Up ahead was the sidewalk.
  4. You guys curved around an orange cone. You ran on the sidewalk. Through previous runs, you knew she did best on sidewalks. You did best on grass. There was a hill up ahead. That was also an advantage of yours. Hills. You could tackle them any day, anytime. You sprint up the hill. Something went wrong. There was a clink in your knee. No, you had to ignore that now. Kids in Africa took about a hundred clinks a day in their stomachs. Downhill. You hurtled down. Something went terribly wrong. You fell over. But it didn’t stop there. You kept falling. Back and back and back and landing on your butt and trying to land on your feet. You were at the bottom of the hill. The glasses girl was still making her way down. There were aches and pains every where in your body. People were wondering if they should stop and help. Suddenly your arm was yanked back into the run.
  5. A swish of brown hardwood hair and you knew Ryan had pulled you back into the race. You ran. You imagined an escaped prisoner coming after you. Like tonight, you three were going to be escaped prisoners out for candy. Every move of the muscle, sent a wave of pain over your body. But you flew. You flew and flew but you didn’t fly fast enough. The course was repeated. No… she wasn’t going to beat you today. The finish line was visible. Only a quarter of a mile left… but your body was slowing. Malfunctioning. Why was your body stopping? You can’t stop now! Your brain was saying, there’s the finish line, no need to worry. Your heart was still pumping, still in the run. Glasses was a foot away from you. Your brain steered back to the race and you gave all you had. You didn’t care if you fainted, you just cared if you beat her. .. everything was getting blurry. A coldness swept over you. You heard a faint voice… “Wow Erin White! Shaved off 2 minutes!” You didn’t hear any more.
  6. There was a hand above your face. You slapped it. There were more hands above your face. You made an attempt to give good slaps. “Great job,” was all you heard. You were facing the sky. Suddenly all was clear. You slapped more hands. A water bottle was thrown at you. You took it and took a good long swig. Then you started guzzling down the precious water. It was like pure heaven. “You were great out there!” You started remembering. You asked, “Did I beat her?! Did I?” A hand was thrust out at your face. You were going to slap it, but it only grabbed your hand and pulled you to your feet. You stared at the face. It was the glasses girl. She was smiling. You realized this was the first time you ever saw her smile. “Great job out there, you beat me,” she said. You give a drunkenly salute and walk off to sit down at a tree.
  7. You hear Miranda and some girls talking nearby, “I’m sad it’s over.” “Yeah, me too. I didn’t feel like I gave my all to the last race and I wanna run it over, but at the same time, I’m glad it’s finally over too!” “Yep and we’re going to ninth grade next year. You think they run cross country there too?” “Of course idiot! And then we won’t have to go around telling little people where to go and telling them to shut up. Now people will tell us what to do, and we won’t have to do that.” “That seventh grader Erin was great though!” “Totally! And Miranda shaved 2 minutes and 50 seconds too!” “Everyone shaved off a lotta seconds!”
  8. The field was getting empty. People were leaving. A drop of rain catapulted onto your head. It was starting to rain. Rain on Halloween?! You stood there on the sidewalk with no cover but your hair and your backpack. The rain soaked the whole sweaty scent off of your shirt and pants. You felt refreshed. But not for long. Your Mum’s car was no where in sight and you were getting numb. Suddenly the rain stopped pouring. Wait, what? You could see the rain pattering the roads but it stopped peltering your head. You turned around. Chris was holding an umbrella over your head. He was half smiling, his usually icy eyes warm among the cold surrounding you guys. “You dummy, you think some miracle gonna happen? You know that you can go bald in the rain,” he said. “Psh, it’s just like showering in cold water, jeez,” you snorted. “And a miracle did happen, you’re here with an umbrella!” you said. When you were home, the rain stopped for good.
  9. There was loud knock at the door. “I’ll get it!” you called to your Mum. All your brothers were dressing up as their favorite super heroes. Jonathan and Nick were Spiderman, Derek was Batman, Willy was superman. Your Mum was a witch and you wore an orange prisoner suit. It was 6PM. You opened the door. Rene and Ryan were standing there. You gave a scream. “ESCAPED PRISONERS! 911! 911!” They both laughed and took you down. Rene was wearing an orange prison suit. Ryan was wearing a cop outfit. “Don’t worry ma’am, I’m the cop here so that we can all trick or treat safely,” said Ryan. You and Rene burst out laughing. “My Mum’s taking out my bros for trick or treating while we go party,” you said. “You mean hogging all the food,” said Ryan. “Whatever,” Rene said as she laid back. “Hey,” you said, “Let’s go to my garage, there’s a whole bunch of pumpkins you guys can help carry out to the porch.” Ryan groans as Rene happily jumps outside.
  10. Inside, Ryan bumps into an old lamp. The garage was a storage place instead of a car’s home because it was too small for the van. Something became dislodged, a huge deck with wheels, and crashed onto the floor. “Sorry,” he said. “Hey, I’ve never seen that before,” you said. You took it out into the house. You asked your Mum. “Ah, that was your Dad’s when he was in his late teens,” she said, “We used to go riding on it together,” she added. “Can we hitch a ride on it, Ms. White?” Ryan asked. “Of course,” she said as she put on her witch hat. You guys took it outside. “We’re gonna ride this to the dance?” you asked Ryan. “Sure, why not. If it’s really late, our parents can come pick us up,” he said. “But none of us know how to skateboard,” said Rene. “But it looks so fun,” said Ryan. “Fine, let’s hitch a ride,” you said as you got on the front. “No, I am the captain here, I’m the cop,” said Ryan as he budged up the front. You snarl at him. “No seat belts, yes can do. Put your hands on me,” said Ryan. “What?! No,” you growled. “Come on you’ll fall,” he said.
  11. “And what about you? You’ll hold onto what, nothing?” Ryan mumbled, “You are so stubborn Erin White, you have the right to remain under obedience…” He took your hands and clasped them on his middle. Your fingers could feel the hardness of his lightly shaped abs. Rene’s hands came onto your waist. Suddenly a grandma from across the street was calling out, “You children would like some candy?” You guys looked at each other. Why not? You ran across and she had these huge Musketeer bars. She had a warm smile on her face. There was a Mom and a Dad inside. The dad comes out and says, “So what are you guys supposed to be?” “Escaped prisoners,” you piped. “Stay away from me then!” he exclaimed but with a glow in his eyes. “Don’t worry sir, criminals today are not here for kids, we’re only here for candy. And while I’m in charge, I can keep an eye on them,” said Ryan. The old lady laughed and you guys went back across the street.
  12. “Hey,” said Rene. “Why don’t we trick or treat along the way?” she asked. You guys looked at each other for a moment and then you ran inside. Walmart bags. None left. Beach buckets. Too small. Pillow cases. Uh… no. Bread bags. Yes, bread bags. There were three loaves of those white breads. You poured all the slices into a huge bread pan, covered it with wrap and ran back outside. “Bread bags?” Ryan and Rene said simontaneously. You grinned. “Okay, let’s go,” said Ryan. “Wait,” he said. He stripped off his police outfit. Underneath were his prisoner clothes. He put the police clothes on the porch. “Why did you do that?” Rene asked. “So that we look more dangerous without authorities,” said Ryan. You guys got in line on the board, Ryan, Erin, Rene. “Hey,” you whispered to Ryan. “You got a Luke Skywalker suit under that too?” Ryan turned his head. “Why would I?” he asked. “Oh, nothing,” you said. “And hey, I don’t like Lily anymore,” said Ryan. “Why?” you asked him. “Just because. And besides I already saw another Luke Skywalker with her today, but I’m glad!” he said.
  13. You guys went from house to house. Your bags were filling. “Hey, let’s go to Clark street!” Rene said. “But we’re going to the dance,” you told her. “Yeah, but the guy there gives out BUTTERFINGERS!” she exclaimed. “I know a lady that gives out pumpkin bars too!” said Ryan. “You suppose she has fudge?” you asked him. “She has to!” he said. You guys go down Clark street. And the next street. You all sang and skateboarded in your prisoner suits and you all went from house to house. You never made it to the dance.
