I chased my 13 year old twin brother Alex in circles while waiting for the bus. We were going to summer camp and staying there for three days and two nights. The bus pulled up a couple of feet in front of us. “last one to the bus is a rotten egg” I heard Alex shriek. Unfortunately I was the rotten egg. I heard a familiar voice. “Amanda, over here?!!” I spotted Julia my best friend. We chatted until the bus stopped in front of camp “Sunshine.” As we got out of the bus we met our teacher Ms. Amy. She had blond hair, white sketchers, Nike shorts and a crop top. She led us into our cabins while explaining the rules.
Julia, Alex, his friend Mathew and me were in the same cabin. When we were done unpacking our stuff it was already 1:00pm. We headed out to lunch. This time the food was actually good. I loved camp until Wednesday when we are preparing to go to bed. I lifted up my blanket and screamed?!! Julia ran over to see what happened and … ahhhhhhh! We were screaming so loud that the other cabins came to see what was going on. “It’s just a fake spider.” One of the boys said. “Who did this?” I shouted angrily almost as loud as our scream. Alex was snickering and laughing so I figured out it was Alex. All the boys started laughing. I was extremely embarrassed. Me and the other girls wanted to get them back so we all declared prank wars. The boys agreed. Me and Julia woke up early so we could set up a prank for Alex. We went to the cafeteria looking for the lunch lady. We found her in the kitchen making breakfast. “What are you doing up so early? You are supposed to be sleeping.” Mrs. Falcon said. I told her about the fake spider, Alex, the prank war, and how we are going to get Alex back. Mrs. Falcon was always really understanding so she agreed to help on the prank. I stuffed a fake spider (the one that Alex pranked me with) into his cupcake. Mrs. Falcon helped me with covering the hole I left in the cupcake that led to the spider so it would be invisible. Julia was just watching her phone the whole time. I tried to make her help us but she wouldn’t budge.
When we got back to the cabin Alex was already awake. “Where were you?” “uhhh… we went to the bathroom.” I said hoping that he didn't suspect anything. Alex ate his lunch and soon enough it was cupcake time. Julia and I started panicking. Alex was about to bite the cupcake. I was so nervous . “what the heck?!” Alex screamed so high pitched everyone burst into laughter!! I bet Alex was really embarrassed because he was blushing so hard that his cheeks were practically red. “Ha that’s what you get for pranking me!” I joked. “ha ha very funny.” said Alex.
I guess Alex drew on my face last night because I woke up screaming. I had a mustache. words like stupid, ugly, annoying, and one even said idiotic, and weird designs like dots and spirals. I complained to the teacher and she demanded to stop this prank war. Other people started booing and I thought it was very rude. The next day was rough, I couldn’t sleep enough because Alex was snoring like a pig. When I ran over to Julia after lunch I saw Julia and Alex hanging out giggling and EXCHANGING PHONE NUMBERS!! I quickly ran over to ask what was happening but Julia just walked away without saying anything.
After camp in the bus I asked Alex what was going on with Julia and him. “We are in love!!? Julia wouldn’t help on the prank because she liked me!” I couldn’t believe what Alex just said. My jaw hung open and I just couldn’t believe it. My mind was running with emotions like mad, surprised, etc. When we got home I was so mad I took my mom’s phone, blocked Julia’s mom, sneaked my brother’s phone and typed in “I hate you” and blocked Julia, and lastly I went to “messages” and blocked Julia on my phone. That made me feel better.
When school started I saw Julia pointing and making weird faces at me. I wanted to scream at her but I held it in. There is this new girl named Allison that I made friends with but first I took her to my house so she can meet Alex to see if she liked Alex. Luckily Alex was not her type. Soon we became BFF’s. We were inseparable. One day I heard Alex on the phone with Julia...Fighting. I guess they broke up. Finally my life was back to normal.
