The Adventures of Taco and Cheeseburger Ch. 13

By Lindsey Michelena & Maria Yniguez

Back in Bumshy Head…..

Ramses, Dante, Garroth, and Alison stand by the barrier, watching Laurence disappear into the woods. “What next?” asks Ramses. “Well, I need to make that potion again, so when Laurence returns-hopefully with Taco and Cheeseburger-I can open it for them,” replies Alison. “Wait, I thought you didn’t have the correct ingredients,” says Garroth. ¨Yes, but I CAN get the rest of the potion prepared while I brew up one of the ingredients.” They all go back to Alison’s house and she brews the potion. ¨Okay, so now that the potion is almost finished I can put it in the fridge to keep it fresh. When I’m done with the last ingredient I can add it to the potion,” Alison says. “Wow, Alison, you sure know a lot about potions. Of course, that’s the only thing you know about,” teases Dante. Alison laughs. She says, “I always got better grades than you in school! So if you think I don’t know anything….” Alison laughs again. Dante’s face grows red, and he tries to punch Alison, but she quickly ducks. While Garroth is laughing, Ramses jumps in the middle of them, separating them. “No more fighting! We already have enough to worry about! I need to look through books to figure out how to control the weather. And I need to keep the people calm; they are starting to freak out. And at least one of you should always stand guard at the barrier to see if Laurence is coming. Then Alison will get her potion. To let them in.” Ramses opens the door and runs to the palace. Alison says, “Okay, who will take the first shift?” Garroth says, “Let’s write our names on small pieces of paper and pull one out. This will determine who gets the first shift. We will switch every three hours.” They write their names down on papers and pull one out. It says “Alison”. “Haha!” laughs Dante. Alison pulls another piece of paper out and it says “Garroth”. “Too bad for you, Dante,” says Alison. “You’re shift is six hours from now. That’s two in the morning!” “You’ll have to do it at five in the morning,” says Dante. “Whatever, I’ll deal with it. And it’s not as bad as two in the morning”, says Alison. With that, Alison walks away to the barrier.
