I woke in the middle of the night in my sitting room covered by a blanket, lights dimmed but the second bedroom light was on. I got up and peeked through the door to see my father lying on a mattress, his glasses at the tip of his nose, reading a book.
I knocked on the door gently and he looked up.
“You’re awake.” He said pleasantly and got up.
“Yeah. I think I might’ve
I went through the drive through the next morning for a bite to eat before I headed to school. I finished my breakfast in my car before I cleaned up and got out.I met up with Charlie and the rest of my friends in the quad, all the while pulling hard on my vape.“Morning boys and girl.” I said when I joined them.“Hey yourself.” Charlie grinned at me.
On Friday afternoon we were given our final times about what time we should all meet at school the next day. We were still unsure of where we were going. When Saturday rolled around I went to the school at the designated area, towing a tiny trailer that my father had lent me. My car was too small for all my friends’ luggage and my things. I had taken my guitar, tent and sleeping bag and that sort of filled up my trunk anyway.I parked next to the buses and got out of my car, all the while putting my aviator sunglasses on.
By the time the buses showed up an hour and a half later the camp was alive. I had turned my car on, with doors hanging open, car radio on blaring country music and the fire blazing gently while I lay in the hammock next to the fire, holding my guitar and a beer down on the grass next to me. The enormous ice bucket was standing next to my car, beers cooling in the ice. My friends sat back in their camping chairs we had talked Steven into loaning us.“Here they come.” I said miserably when we heard the buses gently plodding in.We stayed
I woke about an hour or so later with the sound of thunder and heavy rain. I cleared off my misted windows and peered into the darkness. I spotted the prone figure of Mr Stevens in the hammock when lightning flashed. I cursed and got out of my car and ran to him through the heavy rain. I shook Mr Stevens awake and said.“Hurry sir. We are in an open field and the closest metallic thing is the hammock. Hurry, we have to get you somewhere safe!” I urged him.“What?” he asked confused and started to sit up.
My friends and I stood in the line near the resorts catering truck. There were a few lines but apparently everything was pre packed so each took a plate and went off to eat. Everyone was so absorbed in their food they didn’t see Miss Preston jump out of my car and make a bee line to the ladies bathroom. I nearly choked on my scramble eggs when I spotted Mr Stevens follow her, with her overnight bag in hand.“So you two did the dirty deed last night?” Jack asked curiously.“No. She showed up this morning and annoyed me. I told
Mrs Ward surprised me when she grabbed me for the first dance. She was slightly drunk and off balance but I think I handled it like a pro, making sure she never tripped and if she did, I would catch her mid fall and correct her balance.I still saw no sign of Miss Sheldon but a couple of boys were disappearing one by one into the far cabin and coming out minutes later. I went up to Mr Stevens and pointed it out to him. He nodded and walked with me. We were absolutely astounded by what we saw when we walked in. I was up early the next morning, due more to the fact that I couldn’t sleep than anything else. I got dressed in my car and got out. I took everything out of the car and placed it in the trailer. I was done just as the first kids started leaving the cabins and heading to the bathrooms. I was ready and waiting when Miss Preston and Miss Sheldon came out, the latter looking thoroughly confused and disoriented.“Where are we going?” she asked worriedly when Miss Preston brought her to me.“I have received instructions to take yo

I missed the first day of the team building exercises but I knew I wouldn’t be so lucky the second day. I woke around five am when Miss Preston got up to get out of my car. I waited for a little while and got my clothes together for a shower and got out to follow through on my plan. After the shower I went out to where the catering truck stood, waiting on early stranglers like myself. I was one of the first and got a surprised look from the chef that was still busy with the bacon in the pan.“You up early. I don’t have anything fo
