Ben 10: The Tree
Note: I don't own Ben 10 or any characters. Thank you.
In a small town, stands a big tree. Each year it thins out, a freak in nature. Or is it? More than 200 kids disappear in a year, and their initials found, Mark on the tree.
Chapter 1: The Town
"Wake up Ben." Gwen shouted into her cousins hear.
This was the third time she said that and the third time he ignored. It was a Saturday morning, and Ben usually sleeps till' noon, but not today to a visit. The Tennyson's arrived at their new destination and the only stopping them was Ben.
Gwen made another attempt but this time she pulled out the covers Ben was rolled into them and he came falling down, face to the ground
"Hey!" Ben shouted angrily to her.
"Hahahaha. You should've waked up when I told you." Gwen teased and continued laughing.
With those words Ben ran after her, exiting the mobile home they resided in. Ben chasing her, stopped when he notice where they were There Grandpa Max stood..
"Yup. Nothing to stop me, from waking up at a Saturday morning." Ben replied with sarcasm.
Grandpa then entered the motel, leaving the two. Ben looked up and noticed they were park in the middle of the forest. No buildings but the motel that stood at front. The motel was named "The Old Willow". The outside sure matched the title. It was made of wood, shaped like a cabin, but taller and larger, and had spider webs at the right and left corners of the roof.
"Where are we?" Ben asked the redhead of a cousin he had.
"At a motel, didn't you read the sign dweeb?" She answered.
"Didn't you read the sign?" he mimicked. "I mean where are we? Like the state, city, town. Dumb-butt?"
"Well, be more specific when you ask things next time doofus. Anyways I'll answer it for you, don't stress yourself. Location: a small town in Oregon called "The Hollowing Oak". Population: 200. And may I say very small town and fascinating history."
"I didn't want a lesson, nerd." He said then walked off.
"At least I have a brain. Bigfoot!" she hollered back.
Ben entered the motel and found Grandpa receiving the keys by the counter. The counter was at the left upper hand of the corner, next to it a door Staff Only, and then an elevator. The inside was like a hunting theme, bear and other forest animal heads hanging on the wall names underneath of each. At the middle of the center was a bench stood as a couch, like 3 feet away of the counter. A wooden table, and a wooden cabinet to hold the 90 inch TV stood at front. The left side was double window and the view of the forest. The counter practically took the space. Besides the hunting theme there was a corner on the upper right hand side, which was unusual black and red wallpaper. It took up half of the wall, the other half was the same wallpaper as the left. Looks like wet paint (red part). There was a window at that wall as well, and a chair at front. The chair looked as if someone sat there looking outside. That part of the woods seemed darker.
Ben walked closer to the corner and starred out the window. For a few seconds he thought he saw something. Then 'whoosh' the figure moved and disappeared into the forest. Ben blinked twice and thought twice not making sure if he saw that correctly. He stood there wondering. There was a big dark tree there alone. The tree seemed to be in a circle not figuratively. The rest of the trees were at the side, like giving him room. He was snapped back, by the sound of a voice… It was just the lady behind the concierge desk.
"Here you go enjoy your stay." The woman behind the counter said. "Before you visit the room, please be advice that here is extra curriculum. On New Sunny, where kids do their best for education and fun."
Just then Gwen entered and heard the heard the last part. Going to school in summer, lame, but may just earn her points to be ahead in the upcoming grade. She could make friends, study, and no Ben for a period of time.
"We'll take three." She told the woman.
"What? School in summer. No way. " Ben said disagreeing with her.
"Oh don't worry Sonny, they have different programs. For example: horseback riding, archery, fencing, karate, art, and game centers." The concierge informed.
"Archery, fencing, horseback riding, and art." Gwen repeated excited.
"Forget that, game centers." Ben stated.
Max overheard the conversation and thought of the cost. Fencing, archery, and horseback riding. Sounds expensive.
"For a big cost." Max added.
"Oh no. Just $20 bucks an hour, each kid $10. Yeah this town doesn't get too much visitors even with cheap prices." The woman corrected.
He turned to his niece and nephew.
"Pleeeeeeeaaaaaaassssssssssss seeeeee." They both pleaded in unison.
He thought for a second it was only a week to stay. Why not?
"Ok, we'll take the brochures." He agreed.
"Yes!" they both exclaimed in unison again.
"Jinx. You owe me a soda." Ben said.
"Yeah right." Gwen responded.
Finished. Hoping to update chapter 2 quick.
