The Twisted Mr. Bendy

Summary

Class elections are coming up, and Kate wishes her running mate would just go away, until her wish comes true.

Chapter 1

A birthday banner hangs overhead. Happy Birthday, Kate. Doris and her daughter, Kate, sit at the kitchen table, next to each other. Doris hands her daughter a shiny book shaped package.

Doris

Happy birthday, pumpkin.

Kate eyes her mother and then the package.

Kate

What’s this?

Doris (laughing)

Open it, silly.

Kate tears open the package and discovers it is a diary

Kate

A diary?

Doris

It’s not just a diary. It’s a wish diary.

Kate

A wish diary? Mom, give me a break.

Doris

You write stuff down and it will come true.

Doris pulled the key out of her jeans pocket and handed it to her daughter.

In my hands, I hold Excalibur. Ha ha.

Doris

Knucklehead

Kate

Why are you giving this to me?

Doris

You’re thirteen now. You deserve to have privacy, but at the same time, I don’t you want you to stop believing in music.

Kate

Are we in Iowa, because that was corny.

Mother and daughter share a chuckle. Doris holds her arms outstretched.

Doris

Are you too cool to give your mom a hug?

Kate rolled her eyes.

Kate

I guess not

Mother and daughter hug.

Kate

You and dad are going to stay away from my party tonight?

Doris (nodding her head)

Of course. I’ll be in my garden and your dad has a lot of papers to catch up on grading.
