In physics right now, and Ms. Uycoco goes on a tangent as she is wont to do and starts talking about dimensions and how there are different realities yadda yadda

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

She brings up Jared’s parents – talks about their work in the field and how groundbreaking their theories on interdimensional travel are

Jared
@jwinsban

They are not dead

Jared
@jwinsban

I was there

Jared
@jwinsban

There was a flash in the lab something weird opened up and they disappeared, but their remains were never found

Later that day
Jared
@jwinsban

She gave me an Almond Joy. She said she remembered it was my favorite.

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

He dropped the almond joy on the ground STEPPED ON IT and called me a sellout.

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

WHAT

Jared
@jwinsban

I don’t need her pity. I don’t need anyone’s pity

Jared
@jwinsban

Mom and dad are out there somewhere, I just need to find my way back to them

The next day
Jared
@jwinsban

Greg just invited me to his party

Jared
@jwinsban

Says it’s lots of fun. Hopes I can come.

Jared
@jwinsban

I told him that I definitely will.

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

Why would Scagz invite him?

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

Why would Jared go?

The next night, at Greg’s party
Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

Running after Jared. Scagz wouldn’t leave him alone.

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

“Jared, how can you be so dumb to think your parents are alive when they died right in front of you”

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

Now he’s running for his old house, and it’s pouring with rain. It’s a storm.

Then
Jared
@jwinsban

Their equipment is gone. Their work is gone. What did I think I would find here?

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands

Fuck lightning thunder.

Nkechi
@nkechmyhands
