Jack ran as fast as he could as Mr. Grew came running around the corner of the barn. “You're like 60, how are you so fast!” Jack screamed as he ran with all his might finally gaining speed away from Mr. Grew. “I told you a million times, do not try and enter my barn. There is a top-secret special project in there that you have no right to try and find out what it is.” Mr. Grew said as he came to a halt and spat in Jack’s direction. Jack watched as Mr. Grew spun around and walked away back to his house with his arms in the air. Jack bounded up the stairs to his house as he turned around and saw Mr. Grew staring him down at his porch before entering his house. “Jack honey, are you alright?” His mom asked as she opened the screen door and took in Jack’s beat red face from running so fast. “Yeah, Mr. Grew and I got in a little disagreement but it's all good,” Jack said as he took a lemonade off the tray his mom was holding and tried to get into the house. “Not so fast. Let’s chat.” His mom said as she blocked him with her hand and pointed to the couch. Jack sluggishly walked and sat on the couch dreading what the conversation they were about to have was gonna entail. “You didn't try and go in the barn again did you?” His mom curiously asked as she placed the lemonade tray on the table. Jack sat quietly because he didn't want another barn lecture, “Jack Peter, you answer me right now. Did you try and go into that barn?” His mom asked as she gave him a stern look and sat down next to Jack on the couch. “Yes. Don't you want to know what is in there?” Jack said as his mom glared even harder at him. “How many times do I have to tell you. You leave that poor man alone. I won't have it, Jack Peter.” His mom said as Jack rolled his eyes. “But mom,” Jack said as his mom stood up from the couch with her arms flailing. “Oh no,” Jack said as he watched his mom walk to the bottom of the stairs. “Mr. Grew! Mr. Grew!” Jack’s mom shouted as Jack sat in shock on the couch. “Mom! Stop he will hear you.” Jack pleaded as his mom looked back at him. “You owe this poor man an apology for all you have put him through.” Jack’s mom said as she turned back to Mr. Grew’s house. “Mr. Grew! Aw heck lets just go over there.” His mom said as she started down the dirt path that connects Jack’s house and Mr. Grew’s house. “Come Jack.” His mom said as Jack numbly stood up and walked down the steps as his mom grabbed him by the arm. “We both told you not to go in his barn. It is only right you apologize.” His mom said as she tugged Jack along the path past the barn and to the bottom of Mr. Grew’s steps. “Go knock and apologize.” his mom said as she gently pushed him up the steps. Jack knocked on the front door and waited. “Who is it?” Jack heard a grumpy guy say from inside. “Jack. Can you open the door?” He said as the door whipped open to reveal an angry Mr. Grew. He had a cigarette in one hand and a beer in the other. “Didn't I tell you to stay away, little boy?” Mr. Grew said as he opened the squeaky screen door and stood in front of Jack. “I wanted to apologize for everything I had done.” Jack sympathetically said as Mr. Grew let out a puff of smoke. “Apology? I just don't want you touching my plastic animal collection. I worked so hard getting them.” Mr. Grew said as Jack let out a little laugh. “Plastic animal collection?” Jack said pathetically as Mr. Grew grew even angrier. “Something funny kid?” Mr. Grew asked as he cracked one of his knuckles. "It's just you act so rough and tough. Do you have an easy bake oven in your kitchen?" Jack said as Mr. Grew let out a few disapproving grunts. "Jack Peter, this is not the way I raised you." Jack's mom said as she bounded up the steps and grabbed him. "Let's go home." His mom said as Jack couldn't stop laughing. “I'm sorry mom, this I gotta see,” Jack said as he dashed towards the barn with a hot and angry Mr. Grew and his mom running after him.
