Summer vacation can be fun or it can be very boring. There are so many things you can do without stressing about school or other things but in reality there will be things that get into the way of your fun. Two years ago, during the summer my friends and I decided to have a bonfire. Although this day turned out bad for me, it was a good experience and taught me a lesson.
Coming up with the idea of having a bonfire, we had to plan everything out accordingly and it took us a while because everyone was so busy. Finally coming up with a date, we all agreed it would be at my friend’s house who lives in the country. We all planned to arrive early to set everything up.
Around 6:30 pm., as I was about to leave the house I heard a sudden cry in my brothers room. Dashing towards their room, my little brother sprinted out of the room in tears.
“What did you do? What happened?”
In silence, my other brother ignored me and went back to playing his games. Angry as ever, I got my little brother dressed and took him with me to the bonfire. The ride there was 30 minutes away from Wausau, and my little brother got on my nerves as he wailed about how long it took to get to the bonfire. All these emotions going through my head, I felt a sudden carelessness. As I almost turned back around to head back home, I heard my phone ring.
“Hey, are you coming yet? We’re all waiting.”
“I’m going back home. I don’t think I’m up for it tonight.”
“WHAT?! Come on, just come! It’ll be fun and it’ll relieve some stress.”
“True you’re right… I’ll see you in a bit then.”
As I drove into the driveway, my brother was heavily asleep. Trying to be as quiet as possible, I grabbed the soda and a bag of chips from walmart and brought them inside. As I was heading back to the car to grab my brother, he was gone. I began frantically searching in the back seat and behind the car seeing if he was playing hide and seek. Rushing out of the car, panicking and shivering, I went to get help. Suddenly, I heard my brothers laugh in the distance. Sprinting to the backyard where I last heard his laugh, I saw my brother going down the slide playing with other little kids. In relief, I took a deep breath and sat down and watched my brother carefully.
At 8 pm., everyone started to arrive at the bonfire. Not hearing my brother screeching all the time, it made me feel relaxed. As everyone was laughing, making s’mores, and playing games I felt a vibration in my back pocket. It was my mom.
“Where is Mason?”
“At the bonfire with me.. Why?”
“Why is he there? Why didn’t you leave him home with your brother?”
“Because he wasn’t watching him and so I just took him. Sorry. We’ll be home in a bit.”
“You better be home in an hour or else you’re going to be in big trouble,” she screamed and hung up.
It was almost 9 o’clock and while I was packing the leftovers, I notice my brother was nowhere in sight. Quickly dumping the food in a ziplock bag, I ran to the playground to see if my brother was there. NO ONE WAS THERE. I checked inside the house, NOTHING. I checked the garage and in the bathrooms, NOTHING. In terror, I ran back outside to ask my friends if they saw my brother at all.
“Nope, the last time I saw him was when he was at the playground.”
“No, I haven’t seen him but we can all go look for him.”
All of a sudden, a crowd rushed towards us.
“Have you guys seen my brother?” they asked us.
“No.. Your brother is missing too? I can’t find mine either!”
“I didn’t know but I saw a group of other boys go into the woods and said they were gonna go play. I thought they were just messing around.” exclaimed a short brown curly little girl.
Grabbing a bunch of flashlights, we all headed into the woods. As scared as I was, I had to find my brother. Hearing my phone go off every second, I knew I couldn’t answer it or else I’d be dead by my mom so I turned it my phone off and hid it into my jacket. I didn’t care how long it’ll take, I had to find him. After 10 minutes of searching, I had heard echoes of laughter and a light from a distance. The light was going back to the bonfire area. While I ran, almost tripping on roots and twigs, I saw my brother heading back to the playground. In relief again, I grabbed his things and without saying goodbye, I left with him.
