This is the perfect hiding spot. No one can find me here--shoot, no one will think of looking in here. Nestled against in the corner, under a cabinet—perfect.

“Let’s split up.”
“Alright.”

Okay, stay quiet, the entire game to is to stay still.

Rustle, rustle, rustle...

Ugh, how did I end up on the plastic bag?

“I heard something.”

“Probably, Pastor tryin’ to scare us again.”

... “Alright.”

Crud! That was Annie. She heard me...that’s never good. Okay, carefully lift myself up, and slowly pull the bag out from me.

“I heard something in here...”

Pat, pat, pat, thud.

“Owwww...”

Must not giggle, must not make a sound. Resist the devil and he will flee...

Pat, pat...pat…

“Found ya, Jessi.”

“Shhhhh.”

“Slide over.”

Squeeeeeaaaaakkkk…

“Annie, you in here?”
“Yeah.” No!
“Find her?” Please...no...
“Nope. Just gave up for this room.” Whew...now go away!
“’Kay.”

Footsteps away.

Okay, only Annie’s found me, I’m okay...

“Okay, I’m back, now slide over.”
“Okay...be careful of the—”

Rustle rustle…

“...bag…”
“Sshhhh…”

Finally, peace and quiet. No one can find me here—no one else is brave enough to look in here.

Squeeeeeaaaaakkkk…

Please, go away...this is my hole. No one else...

Pat...rub...

“Okay, who didn’t shave their leg?”
“Bonnie, stop feeling my legs!”
“Shhhh!”
“Brilliant place to hide. No one else...” Thwrap “Ow!”
“Shush and sit down!”

Okay, I’m still good. It’s quiet again, the bag has been moved, and Bonnie has been silenced...now I can relax.

“Okay, has anyone seen Annie?”
“No...”
“I saw her a few minutes ago, she was checking a room out and said there was no one in there, we walked out together.”
“Huh...I haven’t seen Bonnie lately.”
“Do you think...?”
“Nah!”

Well, the numbers are slowly dwindling.

“Bonnie, you in here?”
“C’mon Bonnie, I know that you’re somewhere trying to scare us.”

Pphhhhhhhttttt...

Gag...can’t...breathe...
“Bonnie, I know that you’re in there...and I’ll be back to find ya!”

Slam.

“Okay, who did it?”
“It wasn’t me, this time.”
“...”
“Annie?”
“Shhhhh...We’re hiding remember?”
“Right...”

Thud.

“Who put that garbage can there?”

Must not giggle, must not make a sound.

Shuffle, slide, pat; shuffle, slide, pat...

“Shhh...”

Great, now the Pastor’s wife has found us...how odd, no guys have found me yet. Oh, wait, I know why.

“Okay, the girls have found her. Guys we need to work together...”
“I ain’t going in there...”
“Fine, we’ll do this as a team...grab hands.”
“Pastor, I dunno...”
“C’mon, it can’t be that bad in there. I’ve helped clean it before...”

Giggle.

“They’re in there! I just heard ‘em. I ain’t gonna let no girl beat me at hiding.”

THUD

“Samuel!”
“What?!”
“That’s the girl’s bathroom!”

Giggle, snicker.

“That’s not fair!”
“We never did say that the restrooms were off limits...”
“So...we can go in there?”

Giggle, snicker, snort.

“Human chain, that’s what we’ll do. Samuel will go in first.”
“Why me?”
“Cause you won’t get beat up by the girls.”
“Justin, be nice. He’s just a kid...”
“Wait, did someone just snort?”

Boys are so funny. Wait--something just went under my shirt.

“No...Ew!”
“What?”
“Get it off…get…it...off…”
“What off…”
“Dunno...but it’s a bug.”
“A bug?”

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
