This is one game that Tommy can't afford to lose nor will he want to play ever again
Tommy's New Job
Tommy’s Wizard Game
On a Saturday afternoon, the gang was having lunch inside
the Rocky Shores mall food court
After stealing a French fried off his plate. Cookie asked her
friend Tommy Cub
“So, Tommy, how’s the new job going?”
“Ha, new job!”
The only reason I’m stuck there, is because my mom doesn’t
want me to stay home playing video games
“While she’s at work all day, she says it’ll rot my brain.
And asked my dumb uncle if I could work with him
Until school starts again next week.” Tommy answered her
“But like I tried explaining to my mom,
he’s such an old grouch that he doesn’t
let me touch or do anything. So, I just sit there bored, all day
just feeling my brain slowly rot away.” He added laughing
“Sounds awesome.” Cookie giggled
“And speaking of the old grouch.
I better get back before he has a cow
that I took so long eating lunch and calls my mom
“Complaining how I’ve been just goofing off and get in trouble, later.”
Tommy stated before getting up and leaving the food court
When he returned to his uncle fix it shop.
He found a note typed to the cash drawer:
Thomas, had to go out for a few hours.
Just keep an eye on the place and take any phone messages
Be back soon, remember
don’t touch anything and stay out of the back room
X- Uncle J.P.
“Yah, yah, great, I’ll watch over your crappy store
and stay out of the blah, blah.”
Tommy smirked as he crumpled up the note and threw it away
He started playing with his video game player.
But after a while he grew bored of playing
Tommy sighed and began wondering what he was going to do
until the old grouch got back
When Cookie walked into the store
Cookie's Music Box
“Hey, did you drop by to see what a bored rotting brain looks like!”
Tommy joked. Cookie laughed
“No, my mom asked me to check if your uncle had fixed
my music box yet?”
“Oh, umm, let me check in the back.
I’ll be back in a second.” Tommy answered
Cookie waited fifteen minutes before she called out
“Hey!” Tommy, did you die back there!”
“No, but you won’t believe what I did find!”
Tommy yelled out
“My music box?” Cookie hopefully asked
“Umm, no, but this old fashion pin ball machine.
It looks like it hasn’t been touched in years
I’ve been wondering if it still works.” He answered her
Once he returned to the front room
But what about my music box?” Did you find it?”
“Oh sorry, no, but as soon as my uncle gets back.
I’ll make sure to ask him about it.” Tommy told her
“Okay, thanks, just call me whenever you find out. Later.”
Cookie smiled then walked out
As soon as Cookie left Tommy went back to playing his video game.
And after a while he was surprised that
his uncle didn’t return yet
I wonder what’s taking him so long
Tommy peeked his head out the store’s door and noticed that
the mall was completely empty
“Whoa, there’s no way that they closed the mall
and left me in here alone.
Don’t they check to see if all the stores are empty or not
before they close?” He frowned
Tommy ran downstairs towards the front door to the mall
and tried opening them.
But they wouldn’t open
“Oh great, now what I’m going to do?” wait,
I’ll call Cookie, she’ll know what to do.”
He quickly dug into his pockets
I forgot my cell phone back at the store!”
Tommy ran to a payphone he was about to put a coin into the slot.
When he heard his name begin called out
use this key to open the first ground locker!”
Tommy turned around and
saw that Cookie was begin dragged away by
a big ugly looking warlock
“What the--, Cookie?”
“Hey!” ugly leave her alone!”
Tommy angrily growled
“Don’t worry about him, he can’t hurt me just grab the key!”
She yelled before she and the warlock disappeared
through the double doors
Confused by what just happened Tommy quickly picked up the key
That she threw at him then ran over towards the
locker section of the mall. And opened the one she told him to
inside was a small wand and a golden terra
this is so weird
Tommy went back to his uncle store, grabbed his cell phone
and was about to call Cookie.
When he noticed that he had no battery
He was about to walk out again.
When he heard a strange muffing sound coming out
of the back room
What’s going on, how did you get back there?”
and why are you tied up
Who did this to you?” Tommy cried out
“There’s no time to explain,
did you get the stuff out of the locker?”
Cookie asked him
“Yah, but I still.” Tommy began
now as soon as you find my music box, come find me.
And once you crown me the game will be over.”
“Game?” What are you talking about?”
I don’t understand what game?”
Tommy nervously asked.
Cookie smiled and was about to answer him back
When a big ball of black smoke filled the room.
And when it cleared
Let the game begin
“Whoa!” What just happened?” Tommy yelled out.
But the only answer he got back was the sound of an
And Cookie yelling for him to find her music box
before it was too late
Tommy spent a few minutes searching for
Cookie’s music box.
When he finally found it hidden behind some other boxes
on the top shelves
“Now, I just have to find Cookie,
give her the stuff and I’ll.
Whoa, hold on a second, this feels like my uncle’s
pin ball game.
But how did Cookie, get involved
“She didn’t even know that I played with it.”
Tommy frowned to himself
Tommy quickly put the music box into his book bag.
pulled out his water gun, filled it with cold water
“And put it in his back pocket
“If this is anything like the game, I’m going to need it.”
A few minutes later Tommy peeked his head through
the door of the stone place café
on the third floor of the mall. That looked like a big castle
And saw that Cookie
was begin held hostage by a big warlock and his goons.
Tommy pulled out his water gun
Opened the door farther and yelled
“Hey, you jerk’s look thirsty!”
How about a nice drink of cold water!”
The warlock and goons looked confused.
And before any of them could react Tommy pulled the trigger
Hitting them right in the face
Seconds later there was nothing left of them expect
a big puddle of water
Tommy ran over to where Cookie was asked if she was okay
“Yah, thanks Tommy, you’re my hero.
Would you please do the honors.” She smiled
Tommy smiled back before he opened his book bag and
took out her stuff
Then gently place the terra on her head and handed her both
the wand and her music box
And before any of them could speak.
A bright flash of light filled the room
Seconds later Tommy found himself standing by the
malls front door
Back where he started hours before
But I won
“Hey, what gives?” I just bet you!”
“What am I doing back here again!”
He yelled out
but I warned you to stay out of the back room.
But no, you just had to disobey me and play with
my pin ball game.”
“I hope you liked it,
since you’ll be playing the same game over and
over again forever!”
His uncle’s voice evilly laughed throughout the mall
That wasn't a dream but a nightmare
“Tommy, wake up, you’re having a bad dream.”
A gently voice shook him
“Yes dear, wow, that must’ve been some dream.
You were yelling that you were trapped inside the mall.”
Tommy’s mom began
“And that’s not even the half of it.
Wow, I can’t believe that it was just a dream
So, I guess,
I really didn’t save Cookie from the evil warlock.”
“An evil warlock, oh my,
I’m sure that Cookie, will get a kick hearing about that.
But you better hurry and get dressed. You don’t want to be late.”
Do I really have to work at uncle’s J.P.’s shop today?”
“Tommy, your uncle closed his store last year.
When he retired don’t you remember?”
And when did you ever work there.
Now stop begin silly and get dress.”
His mother giggled
“Oh, but still can’t I just stay home.
I really don’t feel like going anywhere.”
“That’s fine dear,
but I thought you were super excited about going with Sammy,
to video game camp this week?” His mother told him
“I’m. but I was thinking if it wasn’t to late,
maybe instead of video games we’d sign up for something else
“I mean you wouldn’t want for my brain to rot away playing all
those games right.”
