It was late July.
Calvin and Hobbes were beginning the day just like any other.
They now had two newspaper articles taped to their wall.
One was for when they got lost in the mountain range, and the other one was new
Lost boy found. Again.
Once again, Calvin has beaten the odds and survived a month at sea. Or so he says. The ship, however, has not been found. But Calvin retells his story of Rupert Chill attacking him along with a sea monster. He says that the sea monster sunk his ship, and that he and his friend had taken a small cardboard box, and flew off for land. This story amuses many people around the area. And still the mystery has been unsolved. Where has Calvin been for a month? And where is the lost ship? We would like to warn you that Rupert Chill is still on the loose, and that he is armed and dangerous Any sightings should be reported to the police IMMEDIATELY. Although
See BOY page 6
Calvin had once again screamed on how angry he was that no one believed him.
And Calvin's parents had remembered why they wanted to dump him at sea, again.
Although all seemed to go back to normal.
Rupert hadn't been sighted in three weeks, and Calvin and Hobbes had virtually forgot about him.
If only they knew.
Susie was playing on the sidewalk with Mr Bun.
She was performing a ritual known to us only as "THE TEA PARTY".
That's not me talking by the way, Calvin slipped it in while I wasn't looking.
Susie looked around.
Calvin's tree house sat empty on the tree.
Calvin's house was strangely quiet.
Susie was a little suspicious.
She peeked behind all the trees.
Calvin wasn't there.
She climbed up into Calvin's tree house.
Calvin's water balloons lay on the floor.
There wasn't any water in them.
Susie peeked into Calvin's house.
The livingroom was empty.
So was the kitchen.
There wasn't a sound coming from Calvin's room.
Susie scratched her head in confusion.
Usually, when Calvin wasn't around, it meant he was about to blast her with a water balloon.
But all the water balloons in Calvin's tree house didn't have any water in them.
Susie walked back to the sidewalk.
All her dolls were in place, nobody had taken them.
"Where is he?" Susie thought out loud.
It was summer, and it was very unlike Calvin to be inside.
Calvin stood grumpily in line for a movie.
"Mom, why can't I go see another movie?" Calvin asked.
"Because, come on." Mom replied.
"Because come on." Hobbes repeated. "Interesting answer for an interesting question."
"Shut up!" Calvin said. "While we're in that stupid kissing, gooey, romance movie,"
"nice description." Hobbes said.
"We're going to go over our finances." Hobbes stared at him.
"Calvin you're six. You don't have to worry about things like that, yet."
"I mean for GROSS finances." Calvin said.
"Ah." Hobbes said.
Just as the movie started Hobbes looked at a small notebook.
"Water balloons?" Calvin asked.
"We bought three packages last Tuesday." Hobbes said.
"The packages were 5 dollars a pack."
Calvin typed that down in a calculator.
"What about slingshots?"
"We bought one Yesterday for long range water balloon shooting. 3 dollars for that."
Calvin typed it in.
"Didn't we buy something else?" Calvin asked.
"Ah, yes." Hobbes said. "We bought a package of blank writable CDs. That was 5 dollars."
"Why did we buy that?" Calvin asked.
"Frisbee substitutes." Hobbes said.
"Oh yeah, I still have that cut on my palm. So lets see. 5 dollars, then another five dollars times three, and three dollars."
Calvin typed it all into the calculator, and hit enter.
"That leaves us with 2 dollars 60 cents." Calvin said. "Huh. GROSS funds are down."
Hobbes yawned, and leaned back in his chair. "Don't blame me."
"We need some way to raise money, because we need to keep the club running! Hobbes! Inventory!"
Hobbes flipped through the notebook.
"Lets see. Five water balloons, one slingshot, two paper hats, three notebooks, a binder filled with our minutes, and two CDs. One scratched, and the other probably still good for a PC."
"Check the schedule!" Calvin said.
"10:30AM: blast Susie with two water balloons. 5:00PM: Blast Susie with three water balloons."
"With five balloons," Calvin thought out loud.
"We'd only be left with two water balloons by the end of the day!"
"Uh, Calvin? Maybe you should do that math again."
Calvin ignored him.
"We need to find some way to get enough money for more water balloons! But how!"
Calvin thought about that all day long.
By 4:30, he come up with a plan.
A plan that Calvin should have dropped, instantly.
But he didn't.
And it caused a bad chain of events.
Swing123: I'm sorry about this short chapter. It's really hard trying to delay the main part of the movie until the right second. The next chapter will be longer however, I promise.
