I invited Alice, Mouse, Leo, Jamie, and Chris to go to the mall today. We were all piled into Alice's car, on our way to the mall. We were all chatting and listening to the radio. Soon enough, Fergalicious by the Black Eyed Peas started playing. "Oh my god, this is my favorite song!" Chris squealed excitedly. I rolled my eyes. Oh great. Then, he started singing along. Oh my god, Chris! I thought.
"!" he sang loudly.
"Shut up Chris!" I shouted.
Alice laughed, "Calm down, Ange! Let the boy have his fun!"
I sat next to Chris, totally annoyed. He didn't stop, "-"" he sang, "
"CHRIS!!" I yelled, "Shut up!!!!" Chris leaned closer to me, pouting. "What is it, Angie? You don't like my singing?" He batted his eyelashes at me. All of my friends laughed. "God, Chris! You are so annoying!"
"Chill, Ange!" Leo said.
I sighed and crossed my arms, hunching my shoulders. I glanced over at Chris, who was smirking. When he noticed I was looking at him, he started singing quietly again "That puts them boys on rock rock and they be linin' down the block just to watch what I got" I scowled at him, he stopped singing. "" He sang at full volume. "Damn it, Chris! Shut up shut up shut up!!!! You are mostdefinetly NOT fergalicious!!!!!" I punched his arm over and over. Everyone laughed. I glared at them. "I'm sorry Ange, you're just so touchy!" Alice laughed. I sat in a pissed-off silence for the rest of the ride.
Okay, the mall was really fun. Me and five of my friends ran around the Mall for hours, not really buying much, but we got a lot of food (thank you, Mouse!) ran around, etc etc!
Alice dropped me and Chris off at our house at late o' clock. We went to bed.
At about 2 A.M., I heard a scratching sound at my window. What? I thought sleepily. I opened my window and to my surprise, Mouse was standing in the tree right next to the window! "Come on!" she whispered. "What the hell?" I said, "What are you-" "It's Leo!" She said. Leo is her step brother by the way. Mouse practically pulled me halfway out the window. "Mouse! Stop!" I whispered. "I need shoes, Dummy! Let me get Chris."
"Fine." Mouse sighed.
I put on my red robe over my faded green pajamas and I pulled on my sneakers. I literally pulled Chris out of bed, putting my hands under his arms and making him stand. "Come on Chris! Your girlfriend is in trouble!" I whispered. Chris looked up at me tiredly. "That's not even funny." he said, yawning.
I helped Chris out my bedroom window and we all jumped down. Once we got to Mouse's house, I said to Mouse, "Okay, what's wrong?"
"He's gone." Mouse said. "Leo is gone." We were all silent. "Gone?" I asked, "What do you mean.... he's gone?"
"That means he is no longer where he was the last time Mouse saw him." Chris explained. I elbowed him. "Where do you think he went?" I asked.
"I have no idea." Mouse said in her same gravely tone, but she didn't sound as tired as usual. Maybe she's nocturnal, I thought. "Well, that helps a lot." I said grumpily. I took it back after I said it. Mouse actually looked sad. Her eyes looked different then usual. Instead of their usual puke-green color, they were more purple-ish. Weird. "So, uh... you want us.... to help you find him.... at 2:06 a.m.?" I asked.
"Yes." Mouse said, sounding stressed.
I sat back, "Well. Okay then." I had no idea what to say. I had always thought Mouse was a little bit out of it, but was Mouse seriously crazy? Should I trust her? Wait- What was I saying? I had known Mouse for years and I couldn't just flake out on her when she actually needed help. "So what do you want me to do exactly?" I said. Mouse took a deep breath and started explaining her master plan. "Okay, so here's the plan...." she actually took out a map of the city and started saying cheesy movie-type lines like "and then Chris will take 19th Avenue and turn onto blah blah blah."
And get this; She lead us into her garage and took a ring of key off her belt. She stuck a blueish silver key into the lock of a tall gleaming silver thing that looked kind of like a
