Introduction

Brian Cook Fiction Writing Dr. Cox 12/03/05 The bus came to a slow but steady stop. Mike grabbed his Jansport backpack as he lifted himself up from the green seat at the back of the bus. Saying goodbye to his fellow classmates, Mike and his neighborhood friends piled off the bus. Walking up the long hill with one strap of his backpack on his shoulder, Mike said, "Hey Erin, are you going to the dance tomorrow?" "I think so. How about you?" "I'm not sure what were going to do," said Mike in a cool manner. It was a month into Mike's freshman year of high school and the first dance of the year was the following day. He loved everything about high school from the new friends, to the girls, and finally being on a varsity team.

Becoming anxious about the welcome-back dance, the boys started to talk about girls and other classmates in their school. "I bet Mike's going to dance with Tracy Miller," said one of the boys. They all started to laugh and Mike's face became beat red. This went on for fifteen more minutes until the youngsters finally showed up with the popcorn and sodas. The youngsters arrived with the popcorn and soda, excited to hang out with the older kids. However, Mike and his friends backed out on their word and there was a small scuffle between the older boys and youngsters which mainly consisted of noggies and wedgies. Mike and the older boys went back to teasing each other about different girls and imitated how each other would dance. An hour after finishing the sodas, the boys all seemed to become very tired.
