Chapter 4: Old Memories

I'm unpacking my bags now, and looking through the room. I notice an old-looking photo book. It looks familiar, but I can't remember! Oh well, I'll just dump out my Ninja Turtles backpack. HEY! It's my old phone that I thought I lost! Oh, I had some good memories with this phone. Good memories come from bad ideas, my brother used to say...

[[ Johnnathon and I ran to our favorite place. The pond. The pond our daddy always said to stay away from. We were skipping stones, and telling knock-knock jokes. Skip-skip-plop, as we called it. "Come on, Vic! Try it!", He yelled from the other side of the pond. I looked at my feet nervously. My phone dropped out of my pocket a little while ago, so looking like a rock, I picked it up, and through it. "Vicky! That was your phone!" Before I could go and catch it, I tripped up and landed in the water myself. Johnny ran out and put me over his shoulder, like he was saving me from a fire. He put me back on land then looked around the water for my phone. That's what he always was, the overprotective big brother. I loved every fiber in his body for it, but I never listened... ]]

Oh, good times. Good times... And then we got grounded for coming home soaking wet...

I must have dozed off again because I woke up short of breath. My head was in the empty backpack. I fell asleep on the floor! How uncomfortable! On the bright side, I recognized the photo book. My brother gave it to me on my ninth birthday. It's full of pictures of us, at Camp Green lake, with my mom and dad, school pictures.. The first picture in it is Johnny, Aunt Lou and I standing outside her cabin. The first time we came here...

It wasn't light outside anymore. I guess I should sleep soon, for real. I put my things into my backpack and dug in my duffel bag for a tank top and some shorts. After my bags were shuffled under my bed, I climbed under my comfy blankets and finally drifted into a comfortable sleep. Dreaming out sugar canes and gum drops, dancing in my head...
