THE BAD LUCK MOVE

THE BAD LUCK MOVE

By jobella

THE BAD LUCK CHARM
It was a windy Saturday afternoon when the gang got on their bikes. And headed out towards Cindy Moses‟s house to help her move into her new house. When they arrived the front lawn was full of boxes and two grumpy looking foxes, were taking more stuff out of their moving van
“Oh wow!” “Look at all that stuff no wonder they are moving into a bigger house” “ I‟m surprised that they could have moved around in the old house.” “Without tripping over something!” Tommy Cub laughed
“It‟s not that bad Tommy”.” It‟s not going to kill you to do a little hard work hopefully when we‟re done.” “We can ask Miss Moses, if she can bake some of her famous chocolate chip cookies for us” Puppy answered
“Hey guys!” Thanks for coming out and helping me move” Cindy told them once she joined them outside
“Pretty messy huh?” She added
“Messy ain‟t the word”
“So Cindy, are you excited about moving into your new house?” Daisy Penguin asked interrupting Tommy
“Oh yah!
” I finally get to have my own room” Cindy answered. She then pointed to a little porch by the side of the house
“See that little porch over there that‟s where my room is”
“Oh, that‟s pretty cool!” “It‟s like having your own little private clubhouse inside your room” Sammy Turtle laughed
“I don‟t see what‟s so cool about it.” “I don‟t have one in my room” Cindy‟s little sister Jill frowned
“Jill, have many times do I„ve to tell you.” “Since I‟m older that‟s why I got that room nothing else.” “I‟m sure your new room is just as cool” Cindy smiled
“Now I can see why you‟re so excited about having your own room!” Vicky Dragonfly laughed
“Oh, trust me you don‟t know just how much” Cindy also laughed
A few minutes later they were helping Cindy put away the kitchen dishes. When they heard a strange noise coming from underneath the sink. When Cindy opened the cabinet. They all screamed as something reached out of it and tried to grab her arm
“Jill!” “You nearly scared me half to death!” “What are you doing in there?” “I thought you left with mom to get more cleaning supplies” Cindy exclaimed
“How did you get in there is a better question?” Sammy asked looking inside the small space
“Oh wow!” “You should‟ve seen the look on your faces!” “It was great!” “I can‟t wait to tell all my friends I really thought you were going to wet your pants!” Jill laughed
“You do and you die” Cindy growled “Why didn‟t you go with mom?”
“Cause I wanted to spend some special sis and her special friends alone time” Jill smirked
“Oh yah right” Cindy smirked back
“Hey Jill, you‟ve something stuck on the back of your shirt” Vicky told her
“What is it?” Jill asked
“I don‟t know it looks like some old dried up rag sponge or something” Vicky shrugged “Oh wow!” “Gross it just moved!”
She then threw it on the counter so they all could have a better look at it
“Oh, yah right!” “How can a piece of rag sponge just move that old thing probably has been there for years” Tommy frowned
“Hey, maybe it‟s some kind of alien creature disgusting itself as a rag sponge!” Jill cried out
“Well I don‟t care what it” “. We better get rid of it before mom gets back home and freaks over it” Cindy added
A few days later Cindy was walking passed Jill‟s room
“Hey check it out!” “I bet it‟s some kind of alien creature or something and I found it” Jill was telling her best friend Becky Fox
“Oh wow!” “Whatever it is, it‟s sure is gross looking what are you going to do with it?” Becky asked. And before Jill could answer her Cindy walked into the room and said
“Jill, what are you doing what that thing I thought I threw it in the garage?”
“Yah. “But I took it out you‟re just envious cause I‟m the one who found it and not you!” Jill smirked
“Yah!” Envious of you for finding some old smelly rag sponge” right Cindy frowned
“It‟s not a smelly old rag sponge Cindy, it‟s an alien creature.” “If it was just a rag sponge it would‟ve dried up by now,” Jill answered her
“That‟s right Cindy, rag sponges dry up a few minutes if they‟re not in water” Becky added
“Whatever. But it‟s not an alien creatures either there‟s no such thing as one.” “And if mom sees it she‟s just going to make you throw it away.” “You know how freaked out she gets when it comes to germs” Cindy answered
“But she‟s not going to find out is she Cindy,” Jill frowned. And before she could answer. Becky asked Jill “Where are you going to keep it.”
Jill stretched her head for a moment then got up from her bed and walked over to her closet
“I haven‟t thought about it but I guess I can put it inside my old hamster cage.” “Until I find another place for it” Jill shrugged. She was about to pull the old cage from the top shelf when Cindy jumped out of her chair and pushed her out of the way
“Hey!” “What‟s your problem?” And before Jill could finish her sentence, the whole top shelf came crashing down to the floor
“I just saved your life.” “Check it out!” “If I didn‟t push you out of the way it‟d would‟ve squashed you like a little bug” Cindy told her
“Oh and Jill, you know what they say when a kid saves another kid‟s life” “. They‟ve to be their slaves for a whole year!” Cindy laughed before she walked out of Jill‟s room
Three days later Cindy was walking towards her locker when Becky came running up to her
“Hey Cindy!” “Have you seen Jill?” “I‟ve something important to show her”
“No, what you got there?” Cindy asked pointing to the big book that she was holding
“Oh, I found it!”” I found Jill‟s alien creature!” Becky exclaimed
“What?” “Becky just take a breath and tell me what you‟re talking about” Cindy frowned
“It‟s in here look! Becky answered her. Then handed her the book
“The book of strange creatures?” Cindy asked.” Becky are you kidding me where did you find this book?”
“In the library” Becky answered. She then grabbed the book and began flipping through the pages until she found the one she was looking for. Then handed it back to Cindy
“Look does that look familiar?” She asked
Cindy looked at the picture then began to read the article next to it
“The Wart Ball Monster doesn‟t have to eat or drink water to survive.” ”It gets its strength from the bad luck it causes the kid who finds it.” “The Wart Ball monster can‟t be destroyed killed nor can the kid‟s bad luck change.” “The only way to destroy it is by giving it away to another”
“Oh please, Becky you really don‟t believe any of this do you?”
“Yah I do.” “Ever since Jill found that thing she failed her math test, almost got squashed like a bug by her closet shelf” “. And besides I figured that”
“You guys would want to know if I were you I‟d just get rid of it I don‟t know how.” “But I‟d get rid of it as fast as I could before something else happens” Becky shrugged
“That‟s exactly what I‟m going to do as soon as I get home,” Cindy answered
Later that day Cindy was hanging out at the local pizza shop with the rest of the gang. And told them the whole story
“So wait. I „m confused if the book says that the creature is nonexistence.” “Then how can it be in your house?” Sammy frowned
“I don‟t know all I know is ever since Jill, found that stupid thing.” “We‟ve been having nothing but bad luck” Cindy sighed
“So Jill was right she did find some kind of alien creature!” Tommy laughed
“Yah, lucky me it‟s bad enough that I‟ve an alien sister and now she found her lost twin” Cindy added
“Okay Cindy, I know it was you so don‟t even try to deny it. What did you do with it?” Jill demanded
“Did with what?” Cindy frowned
“Don‟t play dumb with my alien creature it‟s gone.” “Now where did you hide it?” Jill cried
“I don‟t know where your stupid rag sponge is at.” “I‟m glad it‟s missing.” “I hope that I never see it again” Cindy smiled
“But we‟ve to find it you read the book and what could happen” Jill pouted
“Oh, please give me a break Jill there‟s no way that sponge‟s going to kill you”
“Don‟t worry Jill you probably just missed place it.” “We‟ll help you look for it” Puppy interrupted Cindy
A few hours later they were about to give up
“Dude, we‟ve been looking for hours maybe your luck is beginning to change Jill” “. And the thing just ran away” Sammy shrugged
“Oh, yah right Sammy. It suddenly grew little feet and took off” Tommy smirked. Sammy was about to answer him when he suddenly cried out
“Yuck! I think I just found the dumb thing”
“That‟s it I‟m getting rid of that thing once and for all!” Cindy cried
They followed Cindy into the kitchen Cindy threw the rag sponge in the sink and turned on the disposer
“There it‟s gone!”
“Oh, so you think!” Puppy laughed. Cindy lowered her eyes to the rag sponge
“What?” “I can‟t believe it that should‟ve ripped it pieces”
“Hello!” “The book said that you can‟t kill it just face it we‟re doom” Jill loudly sighed
“I don‟t care what the dumb book says there has to be a way to get rid it” Cindy frowned
“Hey wait! I think I just came up with a plan,” Puppy suddenly cried out “The book said that you can‟t get rid of it by force.” “Like trying to kill it but what if”
A few minutes later they put Puppy‟s plan into action
“Awww!” “You guys are so lucky to have found it.” “It‟s so cute I wish I had one just like it” Vicky laughed
“Yah, if you guys ever need a creature sitter call me,” Daisy added
“I know I can‟t believe how lucky I‟m to owe it I just want to hug and kiss it” Jill smiled
Soon the alien creature started shaking like it was horrified
“Hey check it out keep going I think it‟s working” Tommy whispered over to them. Cindy picked it up and gave it a quick kiss. As soon she puts back down it suddenly rolled up into a tiny ball and completely fell apart
“It‟s gone!” “We did it!” “But how did you know Puppy?” Cindy asked
“Well the book said that it can‟t be killed by force.” “But it didn‟t say anything about destroying it through kindness” Puppy answered
“Hey why don‟t we go out and celebrate ice cream Sundays are on me!” Cindy laughed
“Hey were did Jill disappear to?”
“Did someone call my name?” Jill answered
“Where did you run off to?”
“Oh, I ran down to the basement I was looking for the air pump couldn‟t find it.” “But you‟ll never guess what I did find while I was down there?” Jill asked them
The gang slowly looked inside the basket that she was holding. Inside there were tiny alien creatures all of them were looking up at them grinning
“Oh no”! Here we go again!” Cindy laughed
