Hiiii! My poll “STORY VOTiNG” is not (in any means) over. I just chose @CapeCardamDolls top choice bc I really wanted to do it! so w/out further ado...
ooh, fitbit says I got my 10000 steps finished when I stepped into my room!! ...WHAT HAPPENED AT THE WATER PARK!
Cold. Breathless. Near drowning. A tight squeeze on my behind. That’s all I remembered. I was chattering, lying on a lounge chair, wrapped in Lanie’s towel. (She’s a sweetie). I’d nearly drowned after someone popped a hole in my inner tube. We, as in Scarlett, Lanie, Ashtyn, me (Lia), Jada, and Alex, were at the King’s Island Water Park. I’d been in the lazy river when the “crime” was committed. ”Alright.” Alex’s drill-sergeant voice hurt my ears. “I know one of you popped Lia’s inner tube.” Everyone‘s faces flushed red. “I’ll just tell you, I didn’t do it. There’s a really cute guy over there...I’m going to go talk to him. He goes to my school.” Scarlett stood up, but Alex pinned her arms behind her and shoved her back onto the lounge chair. “Geez.” She muttered. She adjusted her bikini strap, and leaned back. “I...uh...saw what happened.” Lanie stuttered. “SHOOT.” Alex cried, causing everyone to look over at her. “At ease,” she commanded. “Well...I was floating behind Lia, when I grabbed the edge because there was a spider floating in the water. I didn’t want it to drown, so I plucked it out and set it on the side. Then I heard Lia scream and the lifeguard blow his whistle. Scarlett whispered that he was hot, and Lia was gasping for air. That’s all.” Lanie said. ”That did NOT help, Lane.” Alex groaned. Scarlett stood up. “Speaking of hot...Jason‘s still over there.” She started over to that Jason guy, but Alex shoved her again, earning her a whistle and yelling-at from the lifeguard. “OK. What do you know, Ashtyn?” “Well...” Ashtyn began, “I was switching to a double float so I could pick up Lia, but as I passed her, I heard her scream, and she sunk. And then the lifeguard, and Scarlett...”
”Yeah, yeah. Whatever. Kinda sus that...“
“You‘ve been playing too much Among Us!, Alex.” Scarlett muttered. “Now I am going to go over to Jason. He’s at the...” I watched as Alex held Scarlett down. “Look. We are trying to find out who nearly KILLED Lia. So sit here and be patient.” “Hey!” It was Scarlett. “You don‘t tell me what to...”
Alex stood on the table. “ANYONE HAVE SOME DUCT TAPE?” She yelled. I was SOOO embarrassed. Alex was tossed a roll from someone in front of us. She taped Scarlett’s left wrist and ankle to the big umbrella.
“AAGH!“ Scarlett let out an exasperated sigh. “Well, Scarlett, if you’re so anxious to leave, then why don’t you tell us what you saw?” “Nothing.” “Come on,” Alex prodded. “Fine! FINE! I was chatting with that cute lifeguard, and then Lia screamed and he dove in. Bam. Happy?” Scarlett said. “Now untape me.” “Nah. We’re not done yet.” Alex decided. “No more Jason rants until we’re done.” She pulled Macy’s swim cap from when she was 5 (how is that still there) out of her bag.
“Guys,” I said, “I’m alive and well. Can we just drop it?” “NO!” Everyone yelled, while Scarlett moaned, “Yessss....” Just before Alex stuffed the swim cap in her mouth. “Hey, hey. You forgot me.” Jada twirled a strand of pure-red hair around her finger. “Um...ok?” Alex replied. “Well, I was in the wave pool. A wave carried me up high enough to see the lazy river, which is about 5 feet away from the wave pool. The next wave enabled me to focus on Alex popping the inner tube!” We all gasped. “Alex...is it true?” I asked. Scarlett spat out the swim cap.
“Macy’s not gon’ want that back,” Alex observed. “Alex has been off today...” Jada started. ”First she throws Lanie’s FULL slushie away. Next she threw a shoe at a toddler, and then I walked to the snack stand, only to see ALEX asking for a toothpick! Then she supposedly used that to pop the inner tube, and here she is, swim-cap-gagging Scarlett, screamin’ fo‘ duct tape, and blaming others for her own actions.” ”Scarlett! Whatcha doin’ all taped up like that?” It was the Jason guy. Alex stood on her toes (Jason is very tall) and slapped him. “CAN’T YOU SEE WE’RE BUSY?!?!”
Jason pulled the tape off Scarlett. “Did this psycho kidnap you?” He pointed at Alex.
“No, no.” Scarlett replied. ”But yes to her being psycho.” ”Jason, come back in 5.” Alex demanded. He stepped away. “Fine, I did. Pop it, I mean. But it was an accident. I had a toothpick in my drink-umbrella, but it fell out. I went to get a new one. But the old one was stuck in my hair. It fell out, and onto Lia’s tube. She pricked her elbow, which is why she screamed. But it went down to pop the tube.” “You’re saying that...” Ashtyn mused. “...it was Lia’s fault?” Lanie finished. “No. Well, kind of. But no.” Alex told us. “SCARLETT SHAE! GO GET JASON!”
well, I hope you liked that.
