Cool With A "K" PART 9 - CHAPTER 5

Leo and Chris slowly approached the boy's cabin. Chris stopped walking.... again. Leo rolled his eyes.... again. He turned around, "Uh. Hey, you okay man?"
Chris stared at his feet, "I-I don't want to go in there. What if Zachary...."
"Dude! Enough about Zachary! That whole thing happened when you were five!"
"Whatever. He's not gonna remember that."
Chris was silent. Leo nodded and kept walking. Chris slowly followed him to the cabin.
Leo opened the cabin door. There was one thought that went through Chris's mind at moment; This is pure chaos. And it was; boys from the ages 14 to 17 ran around the room, took open packages of stolen food, etc.
Chris started to hide behind Leo and Leo stepped away so he couldn't do so. "This... is awesome." Leo said, his eyes twinkling. Chris stared at him, "Are you kidding? This is most definitely not awesome! This is hell! How can you-" But Leo had already run off to make some new friends. Chris stood in the doorway for a second longer, wondering what his chances of escaping would be if he made a run for it, but he realized that his home was almost four hours away. He sighed and then quickly dodged the egg that flew at him. It hit the wall and exploded . Chris stood back up, his eyes wide. This was not the place for him, he knew that much. 
Soon, one of the boys with sandy blonde hair, maybe 16 years old or so, hushed everyone, "Hey, check out what I swiped from Ken's office!" All the boys crowded around to see. The blonde boy pulled out a PlayBoy magazine. Everyone oohed and ahed and "how did you get that"d. Chris rolled his eyes. They're just a bunch of perverted thieves! He thought, walking over to a comfortable looking corner. He pulled out his ipod and a book, feeling that he was smarter and better than the goons drooling over a porn magazine. He smiled at his sudden feeling of superiority.
When it came time that the counselors came and made the boys go to bed, Leo rolled his sleeping bag out along with the rest of the cabin. Chris came and rolled his sleeping bag out next to Leo's. Leo stopped what he was doing, "Dude. What are you doing?"
Chris looked up at Leo with his big blue-green puppy dog eyes, "I want to be by you, 
they scare me." Leo stared at Chris, he could not believe he had just said that. "Uhg, 
how do I.... Look, Chris, you are fifteen, not five. Guys this age usually feel the slightest bit uncomfortable if.... Could you just give me a little bit of space?" Chris whimpered.
"Yeah, go on." Leo said. Chris looked down sadly and reluctantly pulled his sleeping bag about an inch away from Leo's.
"A little farther, Chris." Leo said, trying not to sound too annoyed. Chris pulled his sleeping bag about two more inches away.
"A little bit more than that." Leo sighed. Chris whimpered and pulled his sleeping bag about a yard away from Leo's.
"Thanks, Chris." Leo sighed and the boys got into their sleeping bags.
"Good night Leo." Chris said. Leo opened his eyes, facing away from Chris. ".... Good night, Chris." he said, thoroughly embarrassed and annoyed.
Chris lied awake for about five seconds before glancing over at Leo. He got up and pulled his sleeping bag over to Leo so that it was right next to his. Leo opened his eyes, glancing over at Chris, "Oh, you gotta be kidding-" he whispered to himself, putting his pillow over his head.
