"I Can`t Wait"

It all started on December 20th,2007. Larry Smith sat on the edge of his bed with his 2 best friends sitting on the floor.“Man,Larry i can`t wait for christmas.I think my mom and dad is getting me that XBOX 360 i`ve been bragging about all week.” One of the boys said to Larry. “Yeah, i think my moms gonna get me that Dirt Bike and Four Wheller i`ve been asking for.” Another boy said. " What happened to you guys holiday spirit.Christmas is suppose to be about Santa Clause and the egg nog that you drink at parties." Larry told them.“Come on Larry you know we stopped believing in santa clause a long time ago.” Travis said. “Yeah Larry you need to listen to Travis. He may not always be right but i agree with him on this one. All i look forward to on Christmas is the presents and spending time with my mom.It`s the only time of the year she can spends all day with me instead of just 10 lowsy minutes” Andy said." You guys are probably right. But is that all you really look forward to on Christmas?" Larry asked"No.Not really i also like the parties i go to and seeing people i never met before.“Travis answered.Bright and early the next morning Larry got up made him some breakfast set at the family table and thought about what his friends said.Then a knock came on the door.Larrys big sister Jena rushed downstairs and pushed larry so she could get to the door first.”Who is it!!!!" Hollard Jena.“Travis and Andy can Larry come out?”They asked.Jena unlocked the door and said……. “It`s your dorkish friends”. As they walked in they looked at Larry in a unfamilair way.“What”. Larry said spitting his ceral everywhere.“Come on dude don`t tell me you forgot. It`s saturday morning for petes sake why are you still in your PJ`s we are suppose to be out shopping for gifts for our moms and dads. But in Andys case mom.”Said Travis.“Oh. Yeah right the shopping.Sorry you guys i can`t make it.”Larry said.“Why not you`ve been saying you would be free on today.You even made a promise that you would`nt bail out at the last minute.” Andy said.“Yeah i know but.Ummmmmmmmmmm.I…I.I have to help Jena get ready for her prom tonight.” Larry said taking a big spoonful of ceral in his mouth.“What. My prom is`nt until a month from now.Look you guys Larrys lying he does`nt have anything to do but sleep.He was up all night doing some homework.” Jena said.“But we didn`t have any homework!”Travis yelled.Jena ran upstairs as fast as she could.“Look Larry you are my best friend but if you keep continuing to lie like this.We won`t have a friendship!Now are you going or not?”Travis asked angerly.“Alright im going.Give me 5 minutes to change.”Said Larry.“Alright 5 minutes or else.”Andy said.“Don`t push it And”.Said Larry.As Larry ran upstairs Jena looked at him and started laughing.Larry wondered why she was laughing but he didn`t ask he just looked at her and ran in his room.After larry put on his stuff he ran outside to Andy and Travis.“Right on time too.”Travis said. As they left off the porch they ran into 2 old enemies.Alex Matason and Bug Brain.“Well,well,well.Look what the cat spit out.Alex Matason and Bug Brain.” Said Travis.“Aw Travis i think you better leave them alone they got a dog.”Said Larry.“Stop being such a wimp Lar they are not gonna do anything with those dogs.”Said Andy.“I think you need to listen to your boy for you get wiped on my by me and my homeboy.Oh and lil Sparky here to.” Said Bug Brain.“Like i said before you ain`t do nothing with that mutt or your homeboy.”Travis said to Bug Brain. “Didn`t we teach you last that you should mind who you talk to.”Said Andy. “What punk i`ll whip your tail.”Said Bug Brain.“Sick`em boy”.Then the boys started to run with the dog on there tail and the other 2 boys behind them.They hit the corner and lost Bug Brain,Alex,and the dog.“Man that was a close one when are you two gonna learn how to keep your big mouths shut you almost got us killed today. Didn`t you see how big that dog was.He could have eaten us alive.” Said Larry.“Stop your worries he was just trying to scare us.” Said Travis.“Well it worked thanks to you and Andy.By the way where is Andy.”Asked Larry. Then they heard a scream. It was Andy they had caught him and the dog was eating him up.“Help, help.Help me Travis,Larry help!”yelled Andy.“Leave him alone he didn`t do anything to you or that mingy mutt.”Said Travis.“You know you got alot of nerve talking to me and my boy like that.” Said Alex.“You aint gonna do nuttin punk about it”said Travis.“Yeah aight.Try me.”Said Alex.Alex threw the first punch and bam. Travis was out like a light.When he woke up he was in a wheelchair in the middle of a hospital.“Wha…what happened?”asked Travis.“Alex threw the first punch and you went down like that.”Larry said snapping his fingers.That can`t be possible he was just right here.“Said Travis.”Yeah hours ago.“Said Andy.”Andy buddy are you alright all i remember was that Alex and Bug Brain`s dog was eating you up and bitting you with his visus teeth.“Said Travis sadly.”Yeah im okay thanks to you and Larry.Larry was amazing after you and Bug Brain got into it and he knoced you out.Larry jumped in it and took on both of them.But he got knocked down.And had a slittyly sprained arm.But thats okay he just has to rest for the next 2 weeks or so.“Andy said.”Man what are we gonna tell our parents?“Asked Travis scared.”I don`t know about you but me and Andy already called our moms and dads explaining what had happened.“Said Larry.”What.Ya`ll just going to let me hang like that.Ya`ll suppose to be my boys we look after each other.“Travis told them.”I know,i know,i know.But this time we couldn`t bail you out you made your own desicion nobody asked you to help me.“Said Andy.”Hold up, hold up,hold up.
