“I brought-what the fuck?” Michael had left to buy the group sandwiches for their picnic in the park after realizing only when they got there that they had forgot the food at home. Not wanting to drive all the way home only Michael left for the convenience store. The first sight he was greeted by was Jake being chased by a goose, screaming.
“You will not get me today Satan!”
The next sight to greet Michael’s vision as he headed over to their blanket was Rich in the sandbox fighting with a group of children.
“-I’d like to see you try shorty.”
“I can kick your daddy’s ass any time.”
“Oh I’m sure,” one of the children walked over to Rich before kicking him in the shin.
“You little shit!”
That’s when Michael heard a little voice calling from above him.
“Michael, help.” Looking up he saw Jeremy clinging upside down to a tree branch.
“I don’t know, but now I can’t get-” There was a loud cracking noise. “Down.” The branch broke as Jeremy cried out before slamming into Michael.
“No it’s okay-can’t say the same about our food.” Rolling off Michael Jeremy saw the crushed remains of what was once their sandwiches. “What happened?”
“I don’t know, it all started when Rich accidentally hit a goose then it started chasing Jake and from what I could hear up in the tree Rich is arguing with a kid that called him short.”
“But how did you get in the tree?”
“I was trying to escape the goose and the kids.” As he said this Jake tripped over the two crawling behind Michael as the bird began to bite Jeremy. “Damn it not again!”
“Fuck!” The loud voice belonging to Rich made the three boys heads turn to see Rich running from a very angry man, scaring the goose off as he grabbed Jeremy by how wrist with Michael and Jake following case behind.
“What did you do?”
“I called his kid an ugly little shit.
“I was only gone for a few minutes!”
“Yeah but you guys are most of my impulse control, Jeremy and Jake were a little too busy with the goose to stop me. Also, in my defense, he called me short.”
“That does not count in your defense!” They piled into the car with Rich in the driver’s seat as they quickly pulled out of the parking lot and they sped off.
“I hate the park.”
“Agreed, we will never try this again.”
“Since our sandwiches have been crushed who wants to get pizza?”
“That’s probably the best idea I’ve heard all day.”
“We’re not getting pineapple Jeremy.”
“Hey, it’s a good topping.” The other three’s disgusted noises let Jeremy know they thought otherwise.
“Enjoy this next test. I’m going to go to the surface. It’s a beautiful day out. Yesterday I saw a deer. If you solve this next test, maybe I’ll let you ride an elevator all the way up to the break room, and I’ll tell you about the time I saw a deer again.”
