Chapter 1: Plans and Chocolate
It was a normal day for Charlie. He was having a good day at School where he had a lot of attention. It had been 1 year since he and the family moved in with Willy Wonka and the other kids and even the teachers and principal wanted to know "What's it like?" "Any idea what candies Mr. Wonka has planned for the future?" "Any chance I could come visit sometime?" As nice and generous as Charlie was, he couldn't allow just anyone to be allowed in the factory; only those who were his true friends or anyone he found trustworthy. 1 day before class was about to begin, Charlie's friend, Wyatt wanted to know more about Willy Wonka's factory then he already knew.
"Charlie, what are oompa loompas? Are they some kind of animal species?" he asked
"Imported direct from Loompaland. Mr. Wonka said so himself" Charlie responded
Then, A.J, another friend of Charlie's asked,
"My birthday's coming up, Would it be cool if some of the guys could get together at the factory for a big party?"
Charlie enjoyed parties very much, but before he could respond, the bell rang and the teacher entered the room. Her name was Mrs. Clayner
"Good Morning, Class. Let's cover today's subject."
Class went on for a while then the bell rang and Charlie, Wyatt and A.J along with the rest of the class went to lunch.
Charlie pulled out a sandwich, a bag of radishes, bottled water, baked potato crisps and a new looking Wonka Bar.
"Charlie, that Wonka bar looks like a new flavor. What is it?" asked Wyatt
Charlie tasted it and showed him what looked like raspberry filling on the inside.
"It's Wonka's new Chocolatey-Raspberry-Delight" responded Charlie with a smile
"Ugh, Never mind. I hate raspberry" responded Wyatt
"You shouldn't knock until you try it" said A.J
Charlie went on enjoying his lunch. School went on normal as usual and when school was dismissed the kids scrambled outside to wait for the bus, but Charlie himself wasn't getting on the bus. He was waiting to be picked up
When the buses were still in front of the school, a rocket-sounding transportation box was heading towards the school. It was made of glass and a figure was inside. Kids scrambled in 2 directions giving it room to land.
The doors opened and out came none other than Willy Wonka.
"Hello, Charlie. Good day at school?" he asked
"It was a great day! However, I could use some help with my homework"
"I'll get Doris right on it once we're home. C'mon. Let's boogie!" He said as he and Charlie entered the elevator and departed from School.
"There goes 1 lucky kid and 1 strange man" said one of the school jocks.
Charlie and Mr. Wonka soon arrived home. Charlie said hello to his parents and both grandparents, and soon got busy with Doris(the female administrator oompa loompa) on his homework. When they were finally done, Charlie went to find Willy.
"Mr. Wonka? Mr. Wonka?" he called walking down a long hall
A door opened
"Yeah?" he asked. Mr. Wonka was in the inventing room
"There you are" said Charlie
"Need me for something?" asked Willy
"I thought I'd see what you were up to." Responded Charlie
"Well, come enter" said Willy. He showed Charlie all sorts of new amazing candies that were in progress stages.
"Behold," he said and he pulled a lever on the machine that gave the 3-course gum after a few moments a strip of gum slipped out.
"What is it?" asked Charlie
"Gum of course" responded Willy with a strange giggle "Oh, you mean what kind of gum it is?"
"Yes." Responded Charlie
"Well, it's a new kind of gum for children who are a little how you say? Overweight. Wonka's dietitian gum"
"How does it work?" asked Charlie
"When being chewed, a special kind of juice will flow into one's digestive system and burn off their pounds. Chew for 5 minutes and you'll lose 10 pounds. Chew for 15 minutes and you'll lose 30 pounds.*giggle* Ain't that neat? It will be the end of all diet prescriptions and all diet drinks that never did the trick *giggle* and no more salads. At least for anyone who isn't fond of the green dish"
"It sounds impossible." Responded Charlie
"Well, When I make it, it is possible" responded Mr. Wonka
"Unfortunately, the formula isn't quite right yet. An oompa loompa tried a stick yesterday, but he's far too skinny to be seen and the others are currently stuffing him to be noticeable again. But I'll get it right over the weekend. Until then, It remains here in the inventing room"
Elsewhere in England…
Veruca was in class sulking
"Ms. Salt! Please pay attention!" said her crabby teacher, Mrs. Corbo
"But I'm bored! I want to go shopping!" responded Veruca
"No more disrupting, the other students are trying to learn." Said Mrs. Corbo
"I have a billion dollars in my purse, how much to be excused?" She said as she opened her pink purse.
"0 like how your overall grade by the end of the year will be if you continue to act up!" She responded
Veruca groaned silently. Although she was rich and had a good amount of friends at her school, there were many teachers that she didn't quite get along with. She was in need of adjustment on the way she behaved towards her teachers.
At lunch, she had brought Salad, caviar, sparkling cider in a jewel covered thermos and a Wonka bar. Despite having lost the prize of winning the factory, Veruca enjoyed Wonka's chocolate very much.
"Veruca" called Elizabeth from a couple seats down the table.
"The other girls and I are gonna try out for cheerleading after school today. You gonna try out?"
Veruca always had an interest for cheerleading since she was in Elementary school, but before she could respond, a vibration came from inside her purse. She pulled out her phone and it read, "Veruca, dear, remember we're having guests for dinner tomorrow and you must wear something appropriate. Crepes will bring you shopping for a new dress after school"
"Sorry, Liz. Got some shopping during that time. Let's all agree to try out tomorrow"
"Agreed!" called Liz
Veruca was disappointed she wouldn't get to try out for cheerleading, but glad she would be going shopping. She ate her lunch including her "Chocolaty-Raspberry-Delight" Wonka bar
Then after her other classes, she waited outside her school and the limo pulled up where she entered and was driven to the mall. As Veruca and Crepes the butler looked around, Veruca found a dress that caught her eyes. It was dark red and included a bonus pair of long white gloves.
"Crepes, I want this dress!" Veruca shouted with excitement and demand
"Very well. Of course, Ms. Salt" responded the butler
The dress and gloves were soon paid for. Veruca spent time looking in other stores in the mall, saw stuff she simply had to own (such as a pair of shoes to go with her dress) that were bought as well and they soon were on their way home.
Veruca went up to her room and spent time texting, web surfing and watching television.
"Veruca dear! Dinner!" called her mother
Veruca ran downstairs to a beautiful dinner of lobster and caviar.
"So what will you be wearing tomorrow to our dinner party with our special guests?" asked her father
"Only the best dress I've seen all day!" smiled Veruca. A trip to the mall usually cheered her up and brightened her day because she got what she wanted.
"How wonderful" her mother said
"And it just so happens that I bought a tiara that I'm sure will be ever so smashing with it." she added
"A tiara?!" exclaimed Veruca
"I must see it!"
"It can wait, Veruca dear. Wait when dinner's over" scolded her father. He had set quite a few new rules since the day of the factory.
"Yes, daddy" sulked Veruca
When dinner was over, Veruca's mother showed her the tiara. It was silver, sparkly and had a purple jewel in the middle. Veruca was simply in love with it.
"I love it!" she smiled
"I'm glad to hear" said her mother
"But remember," said her father
"You are to wait until tomorrow evening to wear it along with your new dress. We wouldn't want it to be ruined if you wore it tonight"
"Henry, let her wear It just once tonight" she'll be careful
"All right, once tonight is fair"
"Thank you, daddy!" she said as she hugged her father
A few minutes later, Veruca came out of her room in her new dress, gloves, shoes and tiara.
"You look just like a future queen" her mother said
"Very nice, Veruca" said her father who didn't sound so stern this time. He took a few pictures
Once Veruca changed out her dress and into her pink nightgown, she went right to sleep. Looking forward to tomorrow.
However, Tomorrow was about to deliver a big surprise…
