CHAPTER 4

Ms. Butler tells us to come inside, even though she's aware of why we weren't coming in. As we all went inside, everyone was very quiet and scared. I can't believe that Jason is in my 6th period class. I was having a good year so far, I guess good things have to come to an end eventually. While in class, we sat far away from Jason. During the class, he kept staring at me with a blank expression. The only exception was when I and Greg were doing our scene.

Once of 6th period, I meet up with my friends and caught the expo line, only is Jason still catches it too.

"He just kept staring at us the whole time during class for no reason," said Greg.

"Well, maybe not you, but definitely me," I said.

"Shhh, he's staring at us right now."

We all take a quick look at Jason, and slowly go back to conversation. As we continue, Jason makes his way over here, but we ignore him.

"I'm really glad we take the expo line," says Kenny, "Our school bus is so loud, I can't even…"

"Why is this world filled with so much hate?" Jason interrupted.

We all just stared at him in total confusion.

"What?" I ask.

"Why hate someone, who doesn't hate you?"

Jason was clearly talking to me once he said that. I think him being in jail has made him crazy. Me and my friends all just walk away to another part of the train, but then I hear him say, "Oh you'll be back. Just wait, you'll be back."

"Guys, I'm starting to worry about him," said Jane.

"Ugh, here we go again," says Kenny.

"No I'm serious, something is totally wrong with him right now.

"Jane, you know that ever since we knew him, there has been something wrong with him. Why does it bother you this time?" I said.

"Because, look at him. He looks lonely, besides, he's your friend Chip.

"No, no no no. I'm not accepting that ok, and to ask you a question to that statement, do you think that a 'real' friend would try to kill his own friend? No, I don't think so."

"Oh," said Jane.

"Sigh. I'm sorry that I snapped at you, I didn't mean it. Its just that…sigh. I don't know."

"It's ok."

We all get ready to get off the train once we were at our stop. We take the bus the rest of the way home and say our goodbyes for now. Later that day, we help each other with our homework, and we hang out for a while before we go trick or treating. We gotten a bucket load of candy this year, well especially me because lots of people thought I looked cute as a bunny. As we all head our way to my house, I noticed Jason was at my door step.

"Oh come on, what is he doing at my house?"

We watch while he was talking with my mom. Then a minute later, he looks sad and leaves. But once he passes some people, he stares at them with a blank expression, and causes people to run away in fear. But when people run away, he becomes sad again.

"Ok. That's it. I'm convinced. This isn't Jason. It's someone completely different. He is nothing more than an imposter who looks a little like Jason, and is trying to creep me out. I'm no longer calling this person someone he's not."

"Wait, what are talking about," asked Jane.

"Listen, I am not going to believe that's Jason. I don't want to believe that."

"It's is because he's sad right now?"

"He's goes to my house, I'm pretty sure he wants to talk to me, Then he's sad when I'm not there. Something just doesn't add up."

"It could be that he's lonely. I think he just wants someone one to be with right now. He's going through a really rough time. Especially since this is the first time seeing in a year, and you were his best friend. The fact that his best friend is not hanging around him is probably making him sad."

We all take a minute and look back at that crazy teen. All he's doing is just…standing there…doing nothing…looking very lonely…just…standing there.

"Well I don't know about you guys but I'm getting tired. I'm gonna start heading home now. See ya tomorrow," said Greg.

"Yea, me too. Goodnight everyone," said Kenny.

We all said our goodbyes and headed home. I went inside and my mom was cooking some friend rice. I love my mom fried rice. After eating, my mom said she was going to Target to get something, so I was gonna be home alone, as usual. Don't get me wrong, I love being home by myself. It's awesome. Around nine o'clock, I was watching TV until someone rang the doorbell. I thought it was a couple of kids still trick or treating. So I open the almost ready to put candy in baskets, but standing in front of the door, was Jason.

Great.
