The Skate Contest

Summary

The gang couldn't wait until one of them won

the skate boarding contest and stop Boris Flowers from bragging

that he is the best 

Chapter 1

The Skate Contest

 

The boys were completely wiped out

After a long day of practicing their jumps

And ramp performance

For their up-coming skate boarding contest

In a few days

Then going for a long swim in Sammy Turtle’s

Pool to cool off afterwards

 

They were supposed to be toasting marsh

Mellows. And talking about how much they

Couldn’t wait to see Boris Flowers face

When one of them wins the grand prize of

A hundred dollars

But most importantly they couldn’t wait to

Stop Boris from bragging how he’s the best

Skater in their whole class

But after setting up their sleeping bags inside

Their tent inside of Sammy’s backyard

They decided that they were just to tired

And decided to turn in

 

They weren’t asleep for long

When a loud explosion woke them up

From a deep sleep

Sammy scrambled around for his flashlight

And turned it on

“Dude, will you turn that off!”

You’re shining it right in my eyes!”

Tommy Cub groaned

“What was that noise?” Sammy asked

“Don’t know.

 It was probably thunder or something.”

Tommy shrugged

“That didn’t sound like thunder. It was

More like an explosion or whatever.”

Sammy frowned

“Sammy, don’t go all whacky. It was just

Some passing thunder

“Now let’s get some sleep we’ve a big day

Tomorrow.” Tommy yawned  

 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2

The next morning the gang was eating breakfast

At the local bakery

“Tommy, thought it was thunder. But I’m

You, it sounded more like a house

Blowing up or something.”

Sammy was telling them as he explained

About the noise he heard last night

Tommy was about to reply when Honey Kitten

Walked in and join them at their table

 

“Hey guys, guess what?”

She pointed to the bright pink cast

That was on her paw

“The doctor told me that I’m getting my cast

Off later on today!”

“That’s great Honey, does that mean that

You can complete in the contest?”

Vicky Dragonfly asked her

“Yep.” Honey smiled

“That’s really cool.

 I can’t wait to see Boris’s face when he

Sees that you’re back in.

“We all know there’s no way that he can

Bet you in the nose dive competition!”

Tommy laughed

 

Daisy Penguin made an ugly face

Then asked

“Do we really have to talk about Boris

While we’re eating?”

 

A few days later they checked into

The Havens hotel

“This place is really awesome. I counted

To pool areas

“While walking to our rooms.”

Tommy told them once they met again

In the main lobby

“And it’s also so close to the skate park

In where. They’re holding the

Contest

“We could walk there if we wanted to.”

Daisy added

“Right. Speak for yourself.”

 Tommy smirked  

“It wouldn’t hurt you any to get

A bit of.” Daisy began

 

“Have any of you seen Watt Cow.

Its kina weird that we haven’t seen him

Around.” Cookie interrupted her

“Why don’t we ask the front desk if he

Checked in yet.” Vicky suggested

Good idea

 

They started walking towards the front desk

Area

When Honey came running up to them

“Look what I found typed to my door!”

She then handed the folded note over to

Cookie, who unfolded it and read the note

Out loud

 

YOU’VE NO CHANCE OF WINNING!

SO GIVE UP

AND JUST GO BACK HOME!

 

“I bet that jerk Boris wrote this!”

Tommy cried out

“Well, if he thinks that this dumb

Little note is going to scare me.

“He has another thing coming.”

Honey smirked

 

Chapter 3

Once again they started to make their way

Towards the front desk

When they bumped into Boris and his

Friends

“Well, well, if it isn’t the loser gang!”

Boris joked

“Ha!”

 the only loser I see is you!” Daisy snorted

“Oh I’m shaking!” maybe, I should just drop

Out now. And go home.” Boris smirked

“Wow, isn’t that interesting.

 That’s exactly what the note read

Honey suddenly smirked

 

“What note?” Boris frowned

“Oh, some dummy left Honey; a note

On her door. Warning her to go back home

Since she had no chance of winning

“You wouldn’t know anything about that

Would you?” Vicky asked smirking

She then handed Boris; the note who snorted

After he read it:

“You guys must be really desperate

If you’re going to try

And blame this dumb note on any

of us.”

“We’re not trying to blame anything

On you. I just asked you a simple

Question.” Vicky frowned

“Yah Boris; unlike you, who cries

And throws tantrums every time

“Things don’t go your way.”

Tommy added

“Whatever it doesn’t matter anyways.

Since I’m going to win.”

Boris smirked before him and his friends

Walked off

“Oh yah, we’ll just see about that!”

Tommy yelled after him

 

“What a jerk. I can’t wait to

Wipe that dumb smirk off his face

“When one of us beat him.”

Daisy frowned as they watched

Him go

“Especially if Watt wins.

Every since he moved to

Rocky Shores, Boris has been super

Jealous of what a great skater he’s.”

Honey told them

“I even hate to admit it. He’s a better

Skater then me.” She added jokingly

“I agree. His ramp skills are the best that

I’ve ever seen.

“And speaking of Watt; I wonder where

He’s been?” Cookie shrugged

“Well, besides asking the front desk

Let’s ask some of our friends if they’ve

Seen him around.” Vicky suggested

 

 

 

Chapter 4

Soon afterwards the gang learned from

One of their classmate

That they saw Watt by the pool a few

Minutes ago

 

“Hey Watt!” where have you been hiding?”

We’ve been calling and looking for you

All over the place.” Sammy told him

“Sorry, I know.

 But I had to turn off my phone

While I was at the police station.”

Watt sighed

 

Whoa; why were you there

They all wanted to know

“My board was stolen. Earlier I went to

Grab something to eat

Later when I went back I noticed that my

Door was open. And when I went inside

My bags were thrashed and my board was

Gone.” Watt began explained

“That’s awful

I can’t believe that happened

What did the cops tell you?”

Cookie asked him

“Not much. Only that they’d look

Into it

“But I get the funny feeling that they didn’t

Take it very serious. Even when I showed them

The note.” Watt told them

 

What note?

“Oh, some dumb note reading

That if I ever wanted to see my board

Again. That I had to put fifty buck in a bag

And leave it by the pool tomorrow morning.”

Watt answered

“The cops think that it was probably a joke

Or something. They again didn’t take it

Very seriously.” He added

Bummer, so are you going to be able

To compete this weekend?”

Sammy asked him

Watt looked like he was about to cry

Before he answered

“Hopefully. If I can get my board back

By then. If not I’ll have to drop out.”

“Well, maybe the cops aren’t going to

Take this seriously.

But we’ll especially since we know

Who did it.” Tommy frowned

“We do?” Who” Watt asked

Boris

“Tommy, we don’t know that for sure.”

Vicky told him

“Who else could’ve it been. Don’t you

Think it’s weird that Honey and Watt; who

Are both better than he is.

“Got threatening notes?” Tommy explain

“Good point. But we’re still going to need

Some real proof. Before we can prove

That it was Boris.” Vicky told him

 

“Okay, so what are we waiting for?’

We only have two days to figure this

Out

“Honey do you still have your note?”

Cookie asked her

“Yah, it’s in my room.”

Honey answered her

Chapter 5

They quickly went back to Honey’s room

And compared both notes

“There you see. It’s Boris!”

Tommy cried out

“Tommy, will quit saying that it’s Boris.

You don’t even know what his handwriting

Looks like.”

Sammy scowled him

“Well, if he didn’t do it.

Then who?” Tommy frowned

 

The next morning the gang was supposed

To meet Watt; by the pool

But he never showed up

“I wonder what’s keeping him.

I’m pretty sure we decided to meet out

Here by eight.” Vicky asked them as

They sat down at an empty table

“Maybe he overslept or maybe he got

The time wrong. Or maybe he.”

Sammy began

“He forgot.

 We get it Sammy.” Tommy groaned

 

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he did forget

He seems to do that a lot

“I stopped counting all the times

 he bailed out on me.

Every time we were supposed to

Practice before coming here.”

Cookie nodded

“With me too. I really like Watt;

But I can’t help to get a funny feeling

That he’s not begin completely

Honest with us.” Vicky added

“Whoa!” You’re not saying that he’s

Making things up.”

Tommy frowned

“No, I just think that he’s hiding

Something.” Vicky shrugged

 

They waited for Watt for an hour

More.  Before finally giving up and

Went to look for him

 

 

They quickly went back to Honey’s room

And compared both notes

“There you see. It’s Boris!”

Tommy cried out

“Tommy, will quit saying that it’s Boris.

Chapter 6

They found Watt sitting on the floor next

to his room

“Watt?”

 what are you doing sitting on

the floor?” Sammy asked him

“Oh, hey guys, besides having a killer

Headache. I can’t find my room keys

“I don’t even belong here no faker should.”

Watt mumbled

“Whoa dude, take a breath you’re not

Making sense.

“Why don’t we go to the front desk, grab

Your keys

Then go back to your room and talk about

It.” Tommy interrupted   

 

“Okay, now.

 Tell us what’s going on?”

Vicky asked Watt once they were

Back inside his room

 

Watt drew in a long sigh

Before he answered her

“I’ve been faking it.”

Faking what?

“Skating.

 I can’t skate the way I used to.”

“Whoa, wait.

 What are you talking

About?”

What do you mean you can’t

Skate?” Tommy asked frowning

 

“About a year ago I was skating at my

Old Skate Park. Of course I believed that I

Was the best skater in the world

Who didn’t need to wear a helmet.”

Watt began

“I was on top of the ramp and decided

To jump then flip in the air

Before grinning down.”

“Whoa!” That would be insane.”

Tommy whistled

“Yup. But like I said I thought I was

The best and didn’t think nothing of

 it.”

Watt shrugged

“My buddy tried to stop me

But I blew him off and jumped

“Slipped off my board and landed

On my head.

“I don’t remember much only waking

Up in the hospital. And learning how to

Redo everything again.”

He added

“Oh wow, that’s awful. But why didn’t

You tell us?” Vicky asked him

 

“I don’t know I guess. I didn’t want

You guys to think I was a loser

Or that I was weird

“Since sometimes I space out by

Forgetting moves or other stuff.”

Watt shrugged

“And then there was Boris

And his bragging all the time of

How he was better than me

“He got under my skin so bad

That I stupidly bet him that if I didn’t win

I’d give him my best board for him

To keep forever.” He added

 

“Oh wow; how are you going

To do that?”

If you can’t skate the way you used

To?” Sammy asked him

“By writing creepy notes warning

Others to drop out

Or demanding money for stolen boards.”

Vicky answered for him

“hoping that because of them

The judges will have to conceal the contest

And you wouldn’t lose the bet.

“Am I right?” She added

 

Watt just lower his head

Then nodded yes

“Watt;

 that was a really lousy thing

To do.

You should’ve just been honest with us

We would’ve helped you. We’re friends

And friends help each other not pay

Dirty tricks on them

“Hoping it’ll work out.”

Honey scowled him

 

“I’m so sorry Honey. I didn’t mean it

I just didn’t know what else to do

“I guess I’m a loser after all.”

Watt muttered

“No Watt, you’re not a loser.

You just made a dumb mistake

“And now that we know the truth

We’re going to help you

Fix it.” Cookie smiled

Chapter 7

The next morning Watt, along with the

Others

Went to see the judges and told them

The whole story

Afterwards they had no choice but

Suspend Watt from skating in this

Contest or any other for a full year

 

A few hours later they held the contest

In which Honey won first prize

Moments later Boris demanded a

Rematch

Since he blamed Watt for losing

How did the judges expect him to

Skate his best

When he was blamed for threatening

Honey and who knows what else

He protested

 

“Boris, Boris, that’s one dude who is

Never going to learn.

And just to think I was so tempted in

Apologizing to him!”

Tommy laughed

Later that day Watt asked the gang to

Meet him by the pool

When they arrived there was chairs

Filled with balloons

And on the table there was a big cake

That had thank you written on it

 

“Wow Watt, you really didn’t have to do

This.” Cookie told him

“Yah Cookie’s right

 but I’m very happy you did!”

Tommy smiled

Watt laughed

“I know this doesn’t make up for

What I did. But I hope it’s a start

“And Honey, remember how you

Told me how friends help out friends.”

“Yah.” Honey answered

“Well, I hope that’s still true.

Since I’m hoping that you’d really help

Me out with something.”

Watt shyly asked her

“Sure,

 what do you need help with?”

Honey smiled

“Umm, will you teach me

How to skate?”
