Atlanta has a another secret (lol, another! all of my stories have her with a secret practically) and she keeps it hidden pretty well. Until someone finds out! What's gonna happen? (Don't wanna giv...
Archie and Atlanta walked to the table where Theresa was sitting. She'd grabbed a table in the cafeteria and the other two had ordered three slices of Hawaiian pizza. They all took a seat (except for Atlanta who was already sitting) and ate silently. "So, do you think that Jay and the others are gonna be able to get a cure?" Theresa asked, trying to start a conversation. "I hope so, 'cause then-" Archie stopped when Atlanta gave him a glare for almost giving away their secret. "Okay, this is enough! What is this giant secret you two are keeping? How did Atlanta get hurt?" She had slammed down her pizza on the table and people were starting to stare at her. Archie looked at Atlanta and she looked back, trying to decide if they could tell her.
"Theresa, I think we can tell you but you can't tell a soul, got it?" Archie nodded his head and sighed, agreeing with Atlanta. "Really? You're gonna tell me? Okay, I swear I won't tell anyone." Archie laughed a bit and said, "Okay, but just 'cause Atlanta gonna tell you doesn't mean I'm telling her anything." Atlanta looked at him and said, "Yeah right! If she hears it about me, then I'm so telling her about you!" "In your dreams! No one is finding out about it," he argued, now feeling worried. "Okay, this is getting really weird. What are you two talking about?" Theresa asked, now more confused than ever. "Theresa, the reason I got hurt was because umm... well... I was slammed into a wall when someone opened a door."
She looked at them like they were crazy. "/That's /the big secret? You were slammed into a door? C'mon, there's gotta be more." Atlanta sighed and continued. "Well, we were at the hall-" "Hall?" Theresa asked. "Yeah, the dance hall. And I was practicing for the recital and I was on point so I was kinda unstable and some girl opened the door and slammed me into the wall." Theresa looked at her in disbelief. Never in her life, would she think that Atlanta danced. "You mean, you take dance?" "Ballet, actually," she answered, looking at her amazingly interesting lap. "But there's more," she continued, looking up with a smirk on her face. "Oh no you don't! You're not saying anything!" He stood up to walk over a cover her mouth but she was too quick. "Archie takes dance too!" she shouted, so almost the whole cafeteria heard. "You're joking!" Theresa screamed, trying to hold back laughter. "Yeah, yeah, oh my god it's so funny," he said sarcastically, trying to shoot Atlanta the meanest look he could. "It's true, and he's been doing' it for three years." Atlanta couldn't help but laugh with her friend about the fact that Archie danced.
"Umm, Atlanta. I have a confession to make." She stopped laughing at his serious tone, and looked a little scared, like he was going to say that it was his fault she was in the hospital. Because it was. "Atlanta, it's kinda my fault that you're in here. You see, the girl that opened the door thought that I liked her and when I didn't ask her out after the tap routine she got all sad and I didn't care. So she got mad and that's why she opened the door so hard and-" She was crying a little now, the pain of knowing that her best friend- and now boyfriend- had put her in a wheelchair. "You're joking, right?" He just sat there, ashamed. It was now his turn to look at his lap, finding it so interesting.
"I'm really, really sorry Atlanta. I swear, I didn't know." She cried still, but was smiling. She could forgive for anything, even if he'd killed everyone she loved. (Well, maybe not that much, but you get the point) She tried to stand up and hug him, but couldn't. Theresa wheeled her over and she hugged him, and they kissed. Theresa was surprised, and they'd both forgot that no one knew about them dating. "Oops, yeah umm, ha, it's a funny story Theresa." She laughed at them both and said, "Don't worry about it. I don't think I wanna know. I mean, it's a weird story to find out you got hurt by /dancing/, so I think I'll pass on that information." They laughed, knowing it actually was a bit of a bizarre story how they'd hooked up.
So they continued eating; now talking about Archie and Atlanta and their dancing, but most of the time teasing each other.
Jay walked nervously forward, feeling nothing but empty air. He couldn't feel anything in front of him; it was like being in a glass container of blackness that never ended. Until you hit the edge of the glass. He jumped into something and grunted, and heard another person grunt as well. "Who's there?" he asked, trying to sound strong. "Jay? It's Herry," he heard a familiar voice say. "Odie, it's Jay don't worry." He guessed that Odie and Herry were together, and only Neil was left to find. He tried to shield his eyes when he saw a familiar glow stick being lit, and saw Odie and Herry each holding one. "Here Jay, I've got a ton more with me," Odie told him, handing one to him as he motioned to the 20 or so blunt sticks laying in a small pile.
They decided to walk forward and see if they could find Neil. Pretty soon, they heard laughter coming from a tunnel and walked into it, hearing Neil's voice along with more muffled tones. They all thought they were going to fall down some cave, when they saw Neil and a bunch of people gathered around him. "Yes, and no I don't think that'll do. Are you kidding?! That has got to be the ugliest- Hey guys! Over here!" They all saw Neil standing on a chair with numerous people around him, talking and running around busily. They advanced towards him, and looked a little startled at all of the people. But all of a sudden, they parted and bowed, making a pathway for them. Neil jumped off of the chair stood on the ground, greeting the guys happily. "Neil, what the heck is going on?" Jay asked his friend, clearly out of it. "It's obvious isn't it? These people clearly think I'm superior, so they're all 'bowing before me'. You know, like a king?" They just shook their heads and laughed, not noticing that he was serious. "Fine then, I won't get the people to give us the Motion Potion." They stopped laughing, and looked at him.
"You mean, they have some of the potion?" Odie asked. "Yeah, Hera gave it to them when she got it from the cave place. I said that we could go get it but they insisted." All three of them then started saying to Neil at the same time, "Okay, yeah sure, you're their king, now get the potion!" He turned around and shouted, "Okay people! We're gonna need that potion, so hand it over!" No one dared to move, and Neil started to get a little angry. "Okay, if nobody gets me that potion, I'll send an evil monster to come and terrorize you all!" Immediately, everyone jumped up and started running around in chaos, looking for the potion or running to hide. After waiting for only five minutes, a young woman came and gave them a bottle. They thanked her and asked her her name. "Josephine," she said weakly in a scared voice. "People, stop!" Neil shouted and continued as everyone froze, "I'm not gonna send a monster, but this lady, uhh... Josephine, is gonna be your queen while I'm gone, okay?" They all stopped before shouting, "Queen Josephine! Queen Josephine!" And rushing her into a large palace down the street.
"Wow that was easy. Thanks Neil." Herry said. They walked back the way they'd come and didn't even know where they were, but soon found a swirling blue portal exactly like the one that took them to the home of the Gods. After a moment of hesitation, they stepped through and found themselves in Hermes room, and saw the relieved Hermes. "Thank goodness! I'm guessing that I put the portal in the right spot, pheww!" They all thanked him and ran out the door with the Messenger of the Gods shouting after them to stop running off. But they burst through another portal of blue waves and swirls, and ran to Herry's truck. They hopped in and as they drove to the hospital Odie asked Neil, "Hey Neil, how did you get those people to obey you anyway?" He had a mischievous look on his face and said, "Easy, I just said that I had a giant army of monsters behind me waiting to attack unless they did whatever I told them." They laughed at him, but were thankful that he'd thought of such a 'brilliant' plan. They rushed through the door and ran to the caf where they said they'd meet.
"Archie! Atlanta! Theresa!" Jay shouted, as they turned to look in the direction of who was calling them. "Jay!" Theresa shouted back, running to him. "We got the potion," he said, holding it up to pass it to her. "So Atlanta, do we just pour it on your legs?" She nodded and said, "Yeah, a bit on my toes, and then all over my legs up to my thigh. Wherever I'm paralyzed." Theresa took off her shoes and she tried rolling up her shorts as much as she could. Then she poured some of the shiny pink juice on her toes, and then up her leg and to her thigh. Then she did the other leg and Atlanta shut her eyes for a minute, looking like she was in a lot of pain. Then her eyes opened wider than normal, and she relaxed. They waited in anticipation, until she stood up and said, "Like brand new!" They all cheered and a nurse came in to tell them to keep it down. She ran away to find a doctor when she saw Atlanta walking, and they continued to cheer. Atlanta kissed Archie and the others stared while Theresa laughed. "C'mon, we better get out of here before someone comes looking for us."
They agreed and they all walked out, with every single person staring at the loony people. They reached Herry's truck and hopped in as Neil rampaged on of his heroic deeds in finding the potion. "You have to admit, it was an amazing idea," he boasted and Atlanta commented, "Extremely." "See, Atlanta thinks it was heroic!" He continued like this even after everyone had gotten out of the truck and gone inside, while he sat with his seatbelt on, talking. Then Archie and Atlanta said goodnight to go to bed early, and everyone went to bed or stayed and watched a repeat of MuchOnDemand. Atlanta fell asleep but Archie stayed up and pulled out his cell phone. He made a quick phone call before pulling out a notepad and writing down Sunday June 24. 6:00. Then, he fell asleep thinking of only happy thoughts. Thoughts of Atlanta.
