Danny soared in and out of the clouds, wind
ripping through his hair, bugs in his teeth, absolutely carefree.
Whenever he was undergoing a lot of stress, he did this. It took his
mind off whatever he was stressed over, and it felt great. As you may
have guessed, he did this a lot. Hey, it's really stressful being
half human and half ghost. So what was he stressed about? A
lot...school, Paulina, homework, Paulina, managing a balanced
schedule (very hard to do), Paulina, and, of course, being a halfa in
the first place. So, Danny had a lot on his mind, all of which was
forgotten as he zoomed over the trees, through the clouds, and...
into the neighbor's rose bush. CRUNCH! "Aw poop, now I remember
everything I was trying to forget."
Theme song here
Danny struggled out of the rosebush, and ran
away before the neighbors could spot him. He went back to human form
behind his house, and ran inside. He wasn't in any hurry; he just
wanted to get back into the house before his parents realized he was
gone. This usually happened at 10:00. It was 9:30.
Danny, you're early!" his dad said. "Once in a row- it's a
new world record!"
"Oh stop it," Danny said. He raced
upstairs to his room, panting. He wanted to get the rest of his
homework done. Or at least that was his excuse. When he got to his
room, he eyed the calendar. It was April 13- which meant tomorrow
Danny had some bad accosiations with
April 14. It was the day that Wilson Dixon- a sixth grade classmate
Danny had never liked- had died of a prank that had set off his
asthma(did I spell that right?) three years ago. It was also the same
day that Danny and Tucker- along with two other groups- had been
accused of releasing the dust bomb that had killed Wilson. But,
thanks to Sam, who hadn't been friends with the other two at the
time, they had been proven innocent.
Danny sat at the desk in
his room, smiling. If Sam hadn't defended them, his life would be
much different. If Sam hadn't defended them, he and Tuck would be
rotting in the town jail. If Sam hadn't defended them, he wouldn't be
a halfa...Danny sat lost in thought until...
Danny got in bed, forgetting to get into his pajamas
and brush his teeth. He lay awake, thinking about the unlucky
circumstances of April 14-17, 2001, until his sister came up and
yelled at him to turn out the light(She was usually the one who
yelled at him, because his parents never bothered).
