[h=1]Chapter 13: Return to the Present[/h]
As I finished reminiscing, Jacob grabbed my hand and pulled me up off the couch into a standing position.
“Come on Tristian! We’re going to be late!” He warned. I turned off the T.V quickly, put on my sneakers, and walked out the door being towed by Jacob. He was VERY enthusiastic this morning, even more so then usual. He continued to pull me playfully, and all I did was smile and walk on with him. His attire was a bit different in comparison to mine. His sneakers had Velcro straps, and Spiderman designs. His clothes matched this, having a red and blue motif’ to them. He had a Red shirt and a Blue hoodie; both sporting Spiderman apparel. He also donned red sweat pants, which didn’t do too much of a job hiding his diaper. Then again, he seemed to go more often than I did, so I supposed that having quickly removable pants was just something that he needed. He did look a bit silly, being as big as he was in such clothing, but then again, it could have been worse! Could have been walking down the street in a diaper and nothing else!
As I thought this, I giggled a bit. For some reason, Jacob giggled too. We finally reached the bus stop. Our bus stop was probably the closest to school, but since it was still a bit chilly out, I thought that we should ride the bus. We were the last pickup, and first drop-off on our busses’ schedule, so it made the ride much easier to bear. There were only two other people at our bus stop; AJ, and Geremy. I let go of Jacob’s hand and let him run up the the bus stop. His backpack featured the Hulk, and I noticed and odd keychain around it. I didn’t remember my parents buying it for him, so I wondered where it came from.
Jacob ran up and gave AJ and Geremy a hug. Geremy sighed, and AJ just looked shocked.
“Jacob, it’s too early in the morning for this. I forgot my coffee.” Geremy explained. Jacob let go and smiled, as I walked up and greeted AJ and Ger.
“Yeah, but a morning hug is ALWAYS a good day starter!” Jacob said, smiling and holding up two fingers, making the peace sign.
“Yeah, well, we got shit to do today.” Geremy said, somewhat coldly.
“What kind of stuffs?” Jacob asked.
Geremy and AJ were beginning to get used to how Jacob spoke, and the way his personality was. Due to this, they finally came up with a proper response for the young lad.
“Sorry kiddo, it’s, err- big boy stuff!” AJ replied to the boy.
“Oh, okay…” Jacob said, pouting slightly. I patted him on his head and ruffled his fluffy hair.
“Don’t worry Jacob. Knowing AJ and Geremy, we will wind up helping them with whatever it is they have cooked up for today SOME time or another!” I joked.
“And just what is that supposed to mean?” Geremy asked, as the bus pulled up.
“”Oh, nothing; just that you two always manage to screw SOMETHING up!” I teased. Jacob giggled, and started rushing to the bus. I put my arm out in front of him, stopping him. HE looked at me oddly as I let AJ and Geremy go first.
“They’re seniors, and you’re new. Stay behind me, and just relax. ‘Kay?” I asked.
“Okay, I guess….” He replied softly. He sort of tensed up as I walked onto the bus, and I don’t blame him. The bus driver gave him a funny look as he entered, and all we were able to hear was hushed whispers from kids the moment they saw me. I walked to the middle of the bus, and held my arms out, ushering Jacob into the seat. He instinctively took off his backpack and sat down, placing it on the black, cold floor of the February morning bus in front of him. I went and sat right next to him, consoling him, just as the bus started moving.
“Relax, it’s alright bro.” I assured him. He nodded and loosened up a bit. I wasn’t sure what everybody knew at the moment about me, or of Jacob.
“Welcome back Tristian!” I heard from the seat beside me. It was a boy from my science class; which took place first period.
“Hey, thanks! It’s good to be back!” I replied.
“I bet, after all that everyone’s been saying, I bet you must be nervous?”
I flinched slightly. Not any major part of my body, though. My right eyebrow sort of went up, and then down again in a flash.
“What have people been saying?” I asked him.
“Well, you know! That the feds took you and stuff, and made you crap yourself a bunch as punishment for downloading illegal songs!” He replied. Jacob burst out into hysterical laughing, as did AJ and Geremy, who had been eavesdropping a few seats back.
I sighed. “No, the feds didn’t kidnap me for anything! Don’t you watch the news?” I questioned.
“Oh, well that’s just what Josh told me, right Josh?” The kid asked the boy who was sitting next to him. The boy started laughing.
“Dude, do you know what a JOKE and SARCASM is?” He yelled. At this point, everyone else was talking again; probably about me, so his yelling only blended with the rest of the chatter.
“Oh come on! You suck!” The boy joked, giving josh a slight punch in the shoulder.
“And hey, who’s the new kid?” The boy asked.
Jacob immediately popped out from behind me, smiling happily.
“I’m Jacob! I’m Twi’s new brother!” He replied.
“Oh, hi Jacob. Twi?” The boy asked, questioning the validity of my new nick name. I shrugged.
“Yeah, it’s his nick name for me. I don’t know; he likes it, so I guess that means I do!” I explained.
“Oh… hey, are you two wearing di"- The boy said, his mouth being covered by Josh.
“Haven’t you heard the saying; don’t ask a masked man who is, because THAT’S why he’s wearing the mask?” Josh let go of the other boy.
“Yeah, I have! But I don’t think that’s meant for this situation.” He said, trying to reason out the saying.
“Yeah, but pants are just another kind of mask!” Josh said, bopping the other boy on the head.
“Alright, alright! Jeez… so what happened then?
“It’s a long story…” I said, rubbing the back of my head nervously.
“Oh. Well could you tell me? I know captain asshole over there won’t tell me the right version; might as well hear it from the source!” He said. I couldn’t argue with that statement. Hearing the story coming from me was probably the best thing I could ask for. It would clear up any and all misconceptions that people on the bus would hear, assuming they were listening, which I was fairly sure there were.
“Well, it’s like this…” I said, trailing on till we got to the school. I left out the parts about the diapers and regression, but I left in all the key parts. Some were harder to talk about then others, but it was okay.
The bus finally stopped at the school. It had only taken around 10 or so minutes, but that was only because of all the cars on the road that particular morning. Jacob, of course, was feeling A LOT of angst. He looked as though he was a druggy, who hadn’t had their morning crack.
“Jacob, relax! We still have about five or six minutes till we have to go to class once we are inside the building!” I said, as the bus came to a stop and everybody stood up.
“I know I know! But I want to meet my teacher!” He said excitedly.
“This is high school; you’ll have quite a few teachers. “ I explained.
“Oh, okay. That’s really cool!” He smiled. I giggled a bit at his joy, and felt almost as giddy as he did; assuming that anyone COULD be as happy and giddy as he did. One by one, kids lined up and walked off the bus. Jacob made sure to grab his backpack before standing in line behind me. Unfortunately, the seniors behind us got a little rowdy, and pushed forward a bit, knocking my lower body into Josh, who was standing in front of me.
“Sorry! My bad!” I apologized, regaining my lost balance.
“It’s-err, okay.” Josh said.
“Ummm… so I guess you really are….” He muttered. He walked forward and got off the bus before I really had a chance to ask him what he meant. I was pretty sure I did, but I wasn’t sure. My pants did do an okay job at masking my diaper, but even still, I looked a bit ‘puffy’ in that region.
I walked off the bus with Jacob in tow. At this point, the boy really didn’t surprise me much, but it did feel kind of odd for him to be holding onto my backpack the entire way to class. When we finally got in a less crowded hallway, the one in which our lockers were in, I stopped and looked back at him.
“Jacob, you don’t HAVE to stay right behind me in school, you can stand next to me.” I explained to him. He simply nodded and let go of my backpack. I walked down just a bit to my locker, which was decorated with present wrap. It was something people in High school do. You go to school on your birthday, or right after, and your locker is decorated like a big present. A big, rectangular present with books in it, that is. My dad had made a deal with the principal before we enrolled Jacob to the school. Jacob had gotten the locker right below mine, and all of his classes were the same as mine. According to the principal, Jacob DID have an academic record. One which showed he was more than qualified to be in the classroom with kids his own age. This was something that sort of caught me off guard when my dad first said it, but I remained vigilant and cheered about how he was going to be in all my classes.
I unlocked my locker quickly.
“1-1-7” I mumbled extremely quietly to myself. I opened up my locker and got three text books. One for Science, one for English, and one for Social Studies. Jacob already had his books in his backpack, which must have been VERY heavy. I kneeled down and looked back to Jacob, who stared at me blankly.
“Let me see your backpack and unlock this for you, you’re going to need to know how to do this anyway.” I explained.
“Okay Twi!” He cheered. He knelt down right next to me, and pulled out a sheet of paper.
“Your dad said to give this to you when we got to school!” He said. It was his locker combination.
“Okay Jacob, you ready to learn something useful?” I joked.
“Yeah!” He said. I turned the knob to the right. “7.” Then to the left. “7.” Then I turned it right. “27.” I then showed him how to push in the knob, and pull open the locker. He smiled in sheer awe at the simple, yet complex method of opening such a small space. I put in all hi other books, into the locker that he wouldn’t need till after lunch.
“Okay Jacob, you get it?” I inquired. He nodded softly, and stood up. He did as U did and stood up, making sure to close both of our lockers. I turned down the hallway, which was now getting rather crowded, and walked down it. Jacob stood right next to me, dodging the incoming human traffic. I made a left, and walked six doors down the hallway.
“Okay Jacob, this is our first class. Miss Dunphy! She’s our science teacher, ‘kay?”
“Alrighty! I like science!” He stated.
“Good, so do I.”
We walked into the classroom, only to have everybody gasp. I assumed it was because I was finally back, but then again, it could have been because Jacob looked like an overgrown toddler.
“Tristian!” Miss Dunphy called out, running up to me, giving me a hug. I hugged her back shyly. She often hugged her students, which was okay with me; for the most part anyways. She had blond hair, and was only just out of her Training. This was her first year teaching, and she was very friendly.
“Hi Miss Dunphy.” I replied, letting go of her.
“I am SO glad you are okay!” She said.
“Psh! Of COURSE I would be okay!” I said sarcastically.
“Well, you certainly seem to be your old self. And is this Jacob?” She asked, turning to him. Jacob nodded shyly and blushed a little bit.
“Well welcome to my class Jacob! You can take the seat right over there!” She said, pointing to a seat three to the left, and one forward in relation to mine. He started walking to his seat, and I started walking to mine. But Jacob stopped the second he saw me go to my seat.
“Twi! Why are you going over there?” He questioned with a slight whine.
“Because that’s where my seat is?” I mused.
“Why can’t you sit over here?” He asked, walking up to me.
“Listen, Jacob, the seats next to me are taken by other student’s, okay? Listen, I’ll be right over here, okay? I’m not leaving the room, okay?” I consoled him. He sniffled a little bit.
“Good. Now you see the board? All of this morning’s instructions are up there. So just take out your text book, and your notebook.” I explained.
“Alright…” He pouted, walking over to his seat. He put his backpack down on the chair, and pulled out a notebook, and his textbook. But instead of taking one of the many pencils or pens in his backpack that I KNEW were in there, he removed a blue crayon. I sighed, but took out all of my things for the day, as we both sat down in our own seats.
After a few minutes, all the students, including the boy form the bus, and Josh, came into the room. There was a loud ring, and then two more that followed. “Good morning students! Will you all please stand for the pledge of allegiance?”
Everyone stood, including Jacob. He followed what everyone else did, but he didn’t know the pledge. Some students stared at him and others at me. Today was a double trouble kind of day. On the one hand, I was back from being freshly kidnapped. On the other, Jacob was the new kid, wearing toddler clothes and Spiderman Velcro shoes. It was like two famous people had walked into the school and started attending classes there! It felt good to get the attention, I’ll admit, but it also felt awkward. After the announcements were over, we all sat down. Miss Dunphy started to talk.
“Relativity; It’s all around us. Each and every one of you has a relative distance, and speed. Can anyone answer the question on the daily question board?” She asked. We all cocked our heads to the right, looking at the chalk board on the right side of the room.
“You are a pitcher on the back of a large truck. The truck is traveling at a constant speed of 50 miles per hour, and heading down the highway in a straight line. Your coach and your team’s catcher are also on the truck. You throw a ball to him at 100 miles per hour. How fast is the ball going relative to your coach, also standing on the truck? How fast would the ball be traveling relative to a person standing on the ground as the truck passes?”
Jacob immediately raised his hands. Everyone started to murmur.
“Yes, Jacob?” Miss Dunphy said, picking him.
“The ball would be traveling 100 miles welative to the coach guy, and 150 to the person on the ground.” He said, his teenage style talking still not very developed yet. Obviously though, he was very skilled in science.
“Impressive mister….” She started, looking down at her roster list. “Hawk.” She finished. She went back and double checked her sheet, being sure she didn’t just read my last name and his first. She hadn’t.
It was a long day after that. Nearly every question asked, Jacob knew right away. “He’s just a big toddler though!” I thought to myself. I knew all of these answers too, but it took me just a SECOND longer to figure them out. Jacob was surprisingly quiet for the first half of the day, that is, until lunch. After having him switch his books out for our later classes, we made the ceremonial trip to the lunch room. Jacob stood in awe, gawking at the sheer magnificence of it all. There were a lot of different lunch lines, each for different things; not to mention the hundred or so students in the lunch room, all chatting. Jacob grabbed my hand and started running and laughing. I couldn’t help but laugh myself, as he run up to a line. He pointed to the sign above the line.
“Chicken!” He yelled, causing a few heads to turn. I giggled.
“Yeah, this is the chicken nugget line. You can also get a side of fries, and chocolate milk.” I explained to him.
“Chocolate milk!?” He asked loudly. I nodded, and his mouth watered.
“Twi Twi, I think I’m in love with your school!” He said. When it was finally our turn, I grabbed me and Jacob our lunch, nodded to the lunch lady, and walked away. Jacob looked at me oddly.
“Twi? How come those other people had to pay money?” He asked.
“Well, my dad made some… contributions to the school.” I said, pointing to a plasma screen TV mounted on one of the walls. “And there is another one up in the library now. So I get free lunch. And so do you!” I smiled. I usually never sat with anyone in particular, but I thought that, for once in my life, I’d start being gutsy. I walked over to the table where Josh was, Jacob in my stead.
“Hey, can we sit with you?’ I asked. He and a few other people looked at each other.
“Yeah, sure! Go ahead!” A girl said, speaking up. Me and Jacob took two seats, and sat down our trays. Jacob immediately began to scarf down his food, making a little bit of a mess.
“Aw! You’re just too cute!” one of the girls gawked at Jacob. “How old are you?”
“15.” He replied, gulping down some of his nuggets.
“Aw, but you look like your 10!” She cooed, making him blush.
Jacob just kept on eating, the girl being simply infatuated with his toddler like charm.
“Hey, Hawk.” Josh said.
“What is it?”
“After school today, are you doing anything?” He asked.
“Not that I’m aware of! I got homework, and I got to"- I stopped mid-sentence, about to say that I would have to change Jacob when I got home. “Um, do some chores.” I said, catching myself.
“Right… Well, if you want some help with those chores, I don’t have anything really going on today either…” He explained.
I caught his drift. He must have wanted to come over my house for one reason or another, but I couldn’t quite figure out why. I nodded. “Well, I’ll have to ask my mom and dad, but I’m just going to say maybe for right now.” I responded.
“Alright, sounds good”- He started, being cut off. The entire cafeteria went silent. I looked over at the wall with the TV monitor, which was very close to the table we were sitting. I saw two VERY familiar faces. Someone went up and turned the volume to maximum.
“Hey everybody, how the fuck are you?” AJ asked. Everyone in the cafeteria started screaming out answers.
“Well, we don’t fucking care!” Geremy said. Everyone laughed. I felt my adrenaline rushing. Then I realized something. “No way in hell is that just coming from the TV!” I thought. I got up, and grabbed Jacob’s hand, walking into the hallway; past the hysteric mobs of laughing students. Sure enough, the loudspeakers were all active, and blaring. I started walking, Jacob talking to me loudly as I did.
“Twi twi, where are we going?” He questioned.
“Into the belly of the beast.”
I sighed. “We are going to go see what the hell AJ and Geremy are up too.”
As we walked, the two kept talking, and the faint sound of rap music could be heard in the background.
“So, as you all know, I and Ger here LOVE to screw with shit. So today, we are bringing down…” He said. “4-Chan.” I stopped dead in my tracks, bursting out in laughter. I heard nearly every student in the school laughing up a storm.
“The /b/ must be stopped! And this is the ONLY way to do it!” He said. Finally, we came to a locked door to a set of stairs I knew quite well. I opened an unlocked locker and lifted up a small piece of paper, revealing a key. I took the key and unlocked the door. I saw the light on, and closed the door as I stepped on the stairs, making sure Jacob was there with me. I locked the door back up. Me and Jacob walked down the stairs, and turned toward the light, only to see two VERY sneaky masterminds sitting there, talking into a camera.
“And now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for!” Geremy said. AJ turned a computer screen towards the camera. Jacob and I hid behind two large boxes, our eyes peeking out to watch the spectacle. The screen had up some sort of coding, and a lot of numbers. Then he changed the screen over to the 4-chan homepage. He signed in. Then, he opened up some kind of folder on the computer. In a matter of five, grueling minutes, AJ and Geremy Smiled.
“Now, let’s see what this means for those of you who actually LIKE 4 Chan!” AJ said. He turned another computer screen around, and opened up the internet. He typed in the website URL, and on the site… was nothing. It wouldn’t load. “We just deleted, EVERY account on 4 Chan, AND took it down! The URL has been corrupted, so good luck getting it back you pedos!” Geremy said. Then they cut the feed.
“Tristian, Jacob.” Geremy said. “Get out of here while you still can. The security guards are going to be here in 5 minutes, according to the cameras.” I and Jacob stood up, making ourselves visible now.
“What? How do you know that?” I asked.
“JUST GO!” He yelled. Me and Jacob got up, and ran out, unlocking the door. I tossed down the key. “Take good care of that.” I muttered. Jacob giggled and we ran back to the cafeteria.
The rest of the day was uneventful. Jacob continued getting answers right and I continued getting strange looks. Once the day was done, and we had collected our homework, we left the school and started to walk.
“Why aren’t we going on the bus?” Jacob questioned.
“I usually walk home. And I need to think about stuff anyways.” I said. When we finally got home, Jacob looked at me funny.
“I think you’re going to need a change too by now, huh? He asked. I blushed furiously, shutting the front door behind me.
“Yeah… my parents said I could do it myself once I get home from school.” I explained.
(Later that night.)
I picked up the house phone and dialed some numbers quickly.
“Hello, this is the antichrist!” Came a familiar voice.
“Hey Ger! What happened?” I asked.
“I and AJ got expelled, but no jail time.” He said.
“EXPELLED?!” I screamed into the phone.
“Yeah, that’s what I said!” He yelled back.
“Well, hey, listen… I need a favor.”
