It was now Tuesday afternoon and outside Taylor’s office sat Pete with his parents. Pete somewhat felt better having his dad with him, fantasizing that he was his eternal secret weapon.

Taylor finally emerged out of his office at 4pm, “Sorry folks, I was on a conference call, please come in and have a seat, this won’t take very long.” After everyone was seated Taylor started off saying, “I had the pot in question tested over the weekend … (Pete’s dad thinking … ya, right, you probably tried to smoke it yourself) and just now got the results back.”

Pete’s dad was becoming impatient by this point (he knew Taylor from his own high school days and found him quite irritating) and spoke up, “Spit it out, what were the results of the test?”

“Now, now don’t get upset George, I’ll get to that, but first I wanted to let you know that I did talk to Sam and his parents this morning, and Sam has no idea what I was talking about.”

To be continued …

My story is ongoing and I began writing it on March 18th. It is about a boy by the name of Pete Patterson. During a random locker check a bag of pot was found in Pete’s locker. If you’d like to read this from the beginning, it starts here.

Looking at his watch while tapping it, Principal Taylor said, “The wife and I are heading to the cottage in an hour so how about we pick this up on Tuesday around three-thirty. That will give me time to question Sam and speak to his parents.”

Pete felt a little at ease as this would give him three days before Sam would more likely kick the crap out of him. Maybe he would be able to come up with some sort of plan to avoid a beating.

Pete’s mom stood up and said, “Yes that will be fine and I’m sure that my husband will return with us on Tuesday. Come on Pete, grab your bag and let’s go.”

Iain Bates has been murdered. Again.

“Tell me, Joe, why won’t this guy die?”

“I have a thought,” said Anna.

“Ya, and what’s that?”

“Maybe the guy isn’t human, maybe he’s an alien or something.”

“I suppose that’s possible, hell at this point anything is possible.”

“So how do you propose we get this guy? I mean if he won’t die, why not capture him in say … a cage?”

“You know Anna, that might just work. Then we can try to question him to see where he’s from and so on.”

Anna stood up from the meeting and said, “Okay boys let’s go and capture this man before he does any more harm.”

At this point Pete’s mom spoke up, “I think you should tell us, Pete, you don’t want this on your record, as it may hamper your college applications and I’m sure you don’t want that to be the one thing that holds you back from getting into college right?”

Pete sat staring down wringing his hands knowing his mother was right but if he snitched there’d be quite a few guys that he was acquainted with who’d probably kick the shit out of him but then, on the other hand, this could ruin the rest of his life.

The bell sounded and Mr. Taylor had to go and supervise the bus students, stood up, and said, “I’ll give you a few minutes Pete to think about this and when I get back I hope you will have come to your senses and have an answer for me.”

Pete’s mom waited for the door to close and asked him, “This person who you don’t want to give up isn’t in your circle of friends is he?”

“No mom, he isn’t, and you know his parents from church, it’s Sam Wilkinson, and I’ve decided to tell Mr. Taylor when he gets back here.”

“Sam Wilkinson, are you sure, he has always been such a polite boy, it surprises me that he would have done this, and why!”

When Pete walked into the principal’s office, he was shocked to see his mother sitting there looking like something was very wrong and hoped that there was nothing wrong with his dad; why else would she be here.

Taking a seat Pete looked over at his mother and asked, “Is everything okay?”

“Principal Taylor has something he wants to ask you.”

“Pete, as you know we do random locker checks and when we looked in yours we found this, (as he held the baggie up) and I’d like to know why you have this in your locker when you know it is against the law to be in possession of it and against all school rules to have it on this campus.

“I don’t know how it got there, it isn’t mine, but I think I might know who put it there, but I don’t want to give up his identity, or I’ll be known as a snitch.”

“Well young man if you don’t talk to your mother and me about this I’m afraid that I’m going to have to suspend you and have the police look into this matter.”

Principal Taylor used his intercom to ask Pete to come to his office right away, however, Pete was in the gym playing basketball with his class and the principal was having a hard time speaking over the noise of the game.

“Let me see if I can get my assistant to go and get Pete.”

“Do you want me to stay or would you prefer to speak with my son alone?”

“I’d prefer you to stay if you don’t mind.”

Miss Ashford, principal Taylor’s assistant spoke with the coach and he called Pete over to go to the office.

Pete was curious to find out what and why the principal wanted to see him and couldn’t for the life of him figure it out as he hadn’t done anything wrong and had nothing to worry about.

Jane sat and stared in disbelief at the baggie that principal Taylor was holding up.

“I can’t believe that this is pot let alone pot that belongs to my son, he’s always saying that the kids he hangs around with would never ever smoke weed and if by chance it is his, which I doubt, why on Earth would he have it in his locker.”

“Pete has always been such a good student that obeys all the rules, and that is why I wanted to talk with you first to see if we can get this all sorted out. I am required to report this to the authorities but that can wait for a bit.”

“Have you talked to my son yet to hear what he has to say?”

“No, I haven’t yet as I feel safe to say that I believe there is more to this than we know.”
