Anyways, I was wondering if you boys would like my collection of old, skin magazines?” The boys just looked at each other in shock and awe. “Hell yeah, Mr. Atkins, we’ll take ‘em.” “Great, great, boys, they’re right over here.” Rick said to the boys sounding jubilant. “There are a lot of them so you might have to make two trips to get them all home.” “That’s no problem.” answered Kyle. “They’re just over there.” replied Rick. “Next to that old, rusted-out washer and dryer by that oak tree, I already have them piled up in some boxes for you guys.” “Okay.” said Peter, his eyes full of excitement as the boys began to race over to where Rick had said the magazines would be. “Hey, I don’t see them?” Peter called out to Rick as the boys feverishly combed the entire area. “Huh? That’s funny.” mentioned Rick as he walked up behind the two boys. “They were right here a few minutes ago. Oh, well… How about a hammer instead?” Rick then asked.

  • Travis Miler's Life-Personal Narrative
