The Journey Of The Five Cursed Kids: Book 1
If I knew what was going to happen that night with my four friends, then I might have stayed home. But I always wondered what would have happened if I didn’t go. But deep down inside, I’m happy I went because even though it wasn’t the best thing, it did bring something new to us, something we wouldn’t want to give up or share with anyone.
Chapter 1: The beginning of the end
P.O.V of Darren
I was so happy that summer vacation had finally arrived. Maybe I was a little overexcited for summer. But what it meant to me was freedom to do whatever we wanted. Freedom to go on adventures, journeys and make new everlasting memories with my friends. And what I wanted to do was explore and do something I never have done before.
“Hey Jason, I was wondering what we are going to do this summer?” I asked Jason as I laid across his bed with my feet drooping off the other side of his bed as he typed away on his laptop at his desk. I could tell whatever Jason was doing had his full attention.
“That’s a good question. I’m not sure. I haven’t thought about that yet. I guess now is a better time than any. I guess we could gather the crew and have lunch at our favorite spot and talk about it. And what’s up with James? I know you and he had some sort of falling out last year if I remember correctly.” Replied Jason who never took his eyes off his laptop as he continued to type away.
“Yeah me and him did. So no, I don't know what is up with him. I unlike you, don’t tend to talk to people I don’t like. You should ask Liz since she is pretty much the only one of us who can deal with him. On another note, I think lunch with all of us at our favorite place would be awesome. Besides, we haven’t done it in a long time. I feel it would be a great start to our summer off." I said as I played with my phone in my hand.
It got a little quiet as Jason seemed to think for a few minutes. He even had stopped typing away. After a few minutes of dead silence, Jason spoke up.
“Hmm I guess I could call her. I just think we might have been too hard on him don’t you think?” Said Jason as he went back to typing away on his laptop.
Too hard on him? Did Jason forget what he did? He of all people should understand we did the right thing that day.
“I don’t think so. You heard what he said about us. You saw what he did to Liz. You expect me to trust someone like that?” I said to Jason as I slowly got up to get a drink from his mini fridge he had in his room.
“Not really. Even she doesn’t truly trust him anymore. So, I guess we don’t have to invite him to our favorite restaurant if you don’t want him to be there.” Jason said as he closed his laptop for a moment and turned the chair around so he would be facing me.
I sat back down on his bed and began to drink the drink I had gotten. I thought about what Jason had said before I spoke.
“Well we can’t keep him from coming. But we just not tell him anything about what we’re doing. Besides, he is a joy kill. Why would we want a teaches pet like him tagging along?” I said as I put my drink down near my feet.
“Then its settled, I’ll give Liz a call to see if she heard anything from James, invite her since she is an awesome person to hang out with and tell her to meet us at Mario The Bakers in one hour.” Explained Jason as he pulled his phone out of the drawer of his desk.
“You can contact everyone else while I am on the phone with her if you don’t mind.” Stated Jason.
I smiled and picked up my phone that was lying beside me and began to text the rest of our friends.
