Sorry I was late. I had homework and my sisters keep annoying me; by the time I finish, it's already time for bed. You see, when I started this series, it was on a Saturday and I secretly woke up around midnight. However, these days one of my sis sleeps with me (my baby sis) and I can't just have an alarm wake both of us up at midnight, so yeah. Sorry.
EvelioandZgroup: Thanks, I appreciate it. Sorry if I was late.
The Amazing World of Gumball: My New Life
Chapter 3: The DVD
As I walked down behind Mom, I saw Gumball flipping through the channels in the TV. Mom was holding a basket of clothes, and as she puts it down she talked to Gumball. "Gumball, don't forget to return that DVD back today or we'll get a fine." she says calmly.
Gumball groaned. "Can't you do it? You're the one with the car." he asks. I looked at Mom.
"I wasn't the one who watched Alligators on the Train seventy-two times!" she warned him.
"But, technically, you rented it with your money." my brother points out to her.
"The money I have to go and earn to feed you kids!" she yells.
"The kids you decided to have." Gumball concludes.
Nicole froze and her eyes widened. She suddenly stood straight and punched a hole in the wall. The fragments of wood fell onto the ground, and a few was sent onto the windows in the kitchen somehow.
"Yep! No problem, Mom!" he suddenly concludes, "I'll take it back!"
"Oh, very thoughtful of you, honey." Mom comments. She picks up the cloth basket and walked towards the door, "And while you're it, don't forget to put on some pants." Gumball looks down; he was wearing only an underwear and his favorite sweater, "Bye-bye!" she says. "Come on, Flare." she called out to me. I carried my bag tightly to myself, and right before I could follow her, Gumball sighed.
"Can't you return the DVD for me, Flare?" he asks me, and I raise an eyebrow.
"Sorry, Gumball, but I have to go to school to do that project with Alan and Bobert." I told him; Miss Simian had given a project assessment to three students in her class. She said that it would be a good example to show the other students so they could understand, just in case they didn't. She chose me, Alan, and Tobias, but the rich boy said that he had to go stay at a hotel far away from this school with his family for one day; it was an invitation for his father and family, so Miss Simian chose Bobert instead, who was happy to be able to work with a new student; me. But seriously, that was like, two weeks ago since I joined the school!
"Can't you do it some other day?" he asks me lazily. I shook my head, "Sorry, but I'm also going tomorrow. Mom's sending me there, so bye!" I told him and ran into the car. Mom starts up the car, and as we left, I thought I heard Gumball shouting something to Darwin about pizza cutters or something.
"So, honey, you're going to school to work on a project with you friends, right?" Mom asks me as she drove on.
"Yep! Miss Simian said that if she likes our project work, then she'll give us bonus points on our final grade after the end of the year!" I told her, excited. I was sure that we were going to do a good job.
"Oh, really? Well, that's... great!" she complimented nervously; I don't know why, but I've been noticing lately that whenever we talk, if it even had on 'Miss Simian' in it, then she'd become all nervous and stuff. Guess she hates that baboon, doesn't she? Well, I don't see any reason not to.
"So do you have anyone you like yet?" she suddenly asks, causing me to choke on air.
I struggled to free myself, and when I did I panted heavily. "O- Of course not..." I muttered. Mom giggled.
We reached the school, and I got out of the car. "Anyways, thanks mom!" I told her and waved her goodbye as she drove off.
"Well, you're sure early!" a high-pitched voice spoke. I turned around and saw Alan and Bobert standing together, probably having just reached the school judging by the comment.
"Well, sometimes." I said.
"So, do we start now or what?" Bobert asks; he was clearly excited to work with me, 'cause I could see him grinning perfectly... well, not grinning, but his eye was shown in a... happy mood.
"Sure!" I chirped, "Let's start!"
As Nicole drove to work, she felt as if she had been driving for two days just to get to her work building. Suddenly, while driving, she thought she saw Gumball and Darwin sitting on the streets with another beggar. She thought she was just imagining things.
Anais yawned, having woken up. What time is it, she wonders and looks at her clock.
"9:24? How could that be?" she shrieks. She quickly dressed herself and went down to watch the TV, only to find Gumball flipping through the channels. Interesting, she thought.
Suddenly, Darwin ran to Gumball. "Dude, it's a letter from Laser Video!" he told the blue cat.
"Ah, so what? Put it with the others." Gumball calmly ordered, pointing to the piles of red letters next to the couch he was sitting on.
"No," Darwin complaint, "This one's red! It means urgent!" he claims.
"Red envelope or red writing?"
Darwin takes a good look at the envelope. By the time that happened, Anais was chewing on some popcorn she had made while watching the scene. "Red writing on red envelope. It's kind of hard to read actually." he answered. Taking the note out, he read it. "It says we have to pay twenty-five dollars for the DVD!"
Gumball jumped in surprise. "Aaah! What are we going to do?!" he asks.
Darwin calmed down. "Face the consequence of our actions and tell Mom?"
"No, no, no, no, no," the blue cat protested, "Just give me a little time to think." he says. Anais dumped the popcorn cup over her head.
I finished drawing a few things on our project cardboard paper. Wiping a sweat off my head, I smiled. "How does that look?" I asked.
Bobert took a look. "I think it's great. However, you could have made it bigger, but that's okay." he said. I took a closer look; he was right. I could have made it bigger.
"Ah, don't worry about that. Let's call it a day for now and come tomorrow again to finish this project!" squeaked Alan... Well, he sounds like he's squeaking!
"Sure. Bye guys!" I waved good bye as I walked away from school.
"Bye!" both of them shouted and went different ways.
I hummed as I walked further, and the fence near my suddenly exploded as I say someone riding a dog crash the wall to my right. I look closely. "... Mom?"
Mom was there. "Are you okay?" I asked her. She starts recovering by seconds, and told me everything. "Ah, they haven't return the DVD, have they?"
She shook her head.
"We can't! We use it to cut a pizza, and then we scratched it with the wrong side of the scrubby sponge, and then we threw it in the waste disposal! Please don't tell our mom!" both Gumball and Darwin screamed to Larry, and Mom and I walked up to behind them.
"I already know." she says, surprising all three of them (Larry a bit). "How much is the DVD, Larry?" she asks.
"Twenty-five dollars." he answers.
"WHAT! You made me leave work and chased you through the neighborhood on a dog for twenty-five dollars?" Mom asks aloud. I was totally amazed at what she had to go through.
"But...but we were scared to tell you." Gumball replies quietly.
"Aw silly, there's nothing for you to do that will stop me loving you. Come here." she comments as she hugs both Gumball and Darwin. "Now, let me pay for that." she said as she handed Larry the money.
"Uh, just a minute, there's also the lateness fee." he said as we were about the go home.
Mom stopped and turned around, a bit nervous. "Oh, yes of course. How much is it, please?" she asks.
"Let me see. Three months and three days late... That will be seven-hundred dollars." he replied. Oh God, what the heck. I was surprised, and so must have Mom because she froze and turned to my brothers. "You see boys, sometimes in life you really have to face the consequences of your actions. And sometimes you just- RUN!" she shouts as she grabs Gumball's hands, running out of the shop followed by Darwin.
"Hey, HEY, HEY!" Larry shouts. I just stood there, froze. He stares at me. I stare at him. "Well?" he raises an eyebrow.
"Umm... here." I gave him seven-hundred dollars.
"... How did you get all this?"
"Well, Darwin gave them to me.
"Yes, Police." Principal Brown starts in his office, "I was sure nobody came into my room."
"And then"" the Donut Police asked.
"And then suddenly, I saw my wallet there opened. I checked inside, and seven-hundred dollars were missing from them!" he confirms.
