Mordecai played his PSP on his ride home on the public bus when he heard his street called. He got off and walked the street and a half it was away from his house, limping the whole way. The cold winter air blew into his face.
The house was in view as he walked faster. It looked very small, compared to the big fancy houses everywhere. It was a one story with a nice basement where he goes. He got his key ready and walked up the path to the door. He put the key in, and after much frustration got it open.
"Hey hon- Oh my god what happened?!" His mother yelled in horror at the sight of her beaten son.
"It's fine mom, I-I just need some rest."
"Mom... I'm fine." Mordecai said going down the stairs and shutting the door. He let out a sigh of relief managing to get through his mom. He came down to see his basement. It was about the size of a den, and had a worn out sofa they found at the side of the road free (cleaned). On the far side wall was 3 old computer monitors, a self made computer, and a bunch of his papers all over the place. Across the couch was a TV he had won, and was fairly big. Under it was a NES, SNES, a ps2, and a xbox. All given to different cousins on his birthday.
Then next to that was a old DVD player from early 2000. It was amazing that he had all this after the financial state they were in. That's why he was thankful. The only reason he has such a fancy laptop is because its from the school and came with the scholarship. Mostly colleges only do that, ut this is a very highly respected high school though.
He sat down on the couch and put something on the DVD player randomly. He soon felt himself drifting off to sleep...
"Mordecai! Oh Mordecai!" Mordecai heard faintly. He ignored it and continued his sleep.
"He is just downstairs sleeping, tell me if you need anything." Mordecai's mother said with a smile.
"Thank you." Oliver, Cristi, and Mark all said. Chloe gave a shy nod of acknowledgment. They all headed down the small staircase to see the small nerd cave with posters across the walls. Some homemade some generic.
"There's the lump." Cristi said pointing at the sleeping Mordecai. Chloe, surprisingly was the first to approach him. She sat by his waist and slightly shaked him.
"M-Mordecai?" She said quietly.
"Unh Chloe..." Mordecai said in his sleep and grabbed her pulling her down and started to snuggle her.
Everyone was about to go help her until something even more shocking then before happened. She turned around and snuggled him back with a small smile n her face.
"Oh... my... GOD!" Cristi scream whispered. Cristi and Oliver were on the ground, mouths wide open in smiles but no sound came out. Even Mark, the strong silent one couldn't help but smirk.
She started to nuzzle into his neck as he held her tighter.
"Wha...?" Mordecai said starting to wake up. He felt something warm around his body. "C-C-C-C-Chloe?" Mordecai stuttered feeling his knees start to shake and his face on fire. Her eyes went wide and felt hers go up in flames too. She jumped up and ran behind Mark and sat leaning against his legs.
"There you are sleepy head." Oliver said sitting by his feet.
"HOW DID YOU PEOPLE GET IN MY HOUSE?!" Mordecai asked confused as all hell.
"Your mom let us in, sweet lady." Cristi said sitting next to Oliver and on Mordecai's legs, giving him a wink. He quickly got up and went over to his computer, clicking and typing away. Suddenly on one of the monitors showed camera footage to what appeared to be the front porch.
"Oh, you have."
"SWEET MY OWN SHOW!" Oliver said running over to the screen. "Oliver's adventure of life... NO NO Oliver's life: an Epic..." He said doing a title presentation thing with his hands. Mordecai kept typing and clicking through his computer checking everything he had as everyone sat on the couch.
"Okay, so next question..." Mordecai said rolling over to the couch. "Why are you here?"
"To hang... it is Friday after all." Oliver said.
Mordecai thought it out for a second. He doesn't know any of these people except barely Chloe, who he think he may like, and Oliver who is insane. But it's better than typing on his computer as Scott Pilgrim plays repeatedly on his DVD player.
"Fine." he said grabbing his phone. He went over and turned everything off, and went to the door.
"I'm so excitedyyyy." Oliver said bouncing up and down. Mordecai held the door open for everyone and then locked the door behind him.
"Bye mom I'm heading out." Mordecai said going to the door.
"Sweetie wait, I don't think you should be going out in your condition... it can't be safe."
"Don't worry we will have your son back in one piece." Mark said alarming the others. Mordecai felt Chloe hold his arm tightly, which Mordecai's mother noticed.
"Okay, have fun." She said smiling. Mordecai waved and Oliver and Cristi went out first. Ms. Masten kissed his head and waved goodbye.
"Ms. Maston." Mark said nodding, hands still in pockets and went out after Mordecai and Chloe. Mark caught up to Mordecai when he said something.
"Your voice is dreaaamy." Mordecai joked causing Chloe to giggle.
"Ha ha." Mark said sarcastically. They continued walking down the road, Mordecai having no idea where they were going.
"Where are we going?" Mordecai finally asked. As if in reply, a limo pulled up next to the curb.
"Fancy a ride, sir?" a man asked Oliver who was up at the front of everyone.
"Oh yeah thanks Higgins. Everybody get in!" Oliver said as they all piled into the big limo. Mordecai entered the long vehicle to see red leather interior and sleek design. His mouth was open in amazement.
"Oliver you have a limo?!" Mordecai said in amazement.
"We all do." Cristi said. "Your the only poor... middle class one." Cristi corrected moving over to sit next to him.
"Who's your new friend?" They heard someone say. They all looked to the back of the limo to see a screen with a man on it.
"Oh, hey dad..." Oliver said crossing his arms.
"What's that and who's that?" Mordecai whispered to Mark.
"I, am Amadeus Erving CEO of Erving Industries and owner of this vehicle and face chat we are on."
"What do you want dad?"
"I want you to come home this instant." He said anger rising in his voice.
"Why, I'm hanging with my friends." he said feeling frustration rise up throughout his body.
"Because I'm your superior and you have to listen to me."Oliver smashed a button above him, causing the screen to go blank. Oliver was pissed, an emotion Mordecai never seen on him. There was silence among everyone.
"Because I'm your superior and you have to listen to me." Mordecai mocked with his chest puffed out. Oliver laughed and everyone became relaxed again.
"I like you your funny." Oliver said to Mordecai sitting back.
"Now, can someone tell me where were going?" Mordecai asked sitting back getting comfortable.
"Oh, were going to The Monster. The best club in town." Cristi said with a cocky attitude and put her feet on Mordecai's legs. He was tired of fighting Cristi's advances so he just let her do it. This... was a grave mistake. For both Cristi's and Chloe's thinking of him.
He looked at Chloe who seemed to be looking at her feet and her eyes sad.
"I didn't know you guys like going to clubs." Chloe didn't answer. Mark picked up.
"We don't it was her turn to pick where we go." Mark said looking at him and Chloe. He nodded and sat back closing his eyes.
"How long is the drive?" Mordecai asked out loud.
"Hour or two." Oliver said. Oliver turned on the radio inside the limo. Mordecai felt sleep slowly overcome him once again.
He woke up fiercely from a nightmare... a flashback. He opened his eyes to feel warmth around him. He looked forward as he stretched his legs. Mark and Mordecai were asleep on the benches. He looked down, and saw Cristi snuggling him to the right, and Chloe on the left.
'Mordecai... how do you get yourself into these things?' He slowly got up and laid them down gently. They did groans of protest, and when he looked back saw them snuggling themselves. He smirked and went over and sat down by Oliver's head.
"No Gram gram I want choco chippies." Oliver said sucking his thumb and curling into a ball. Mordecai smirked looking around the car.
"Ya, I was wrong about them." He said to himself closing his eyes once more. As he fell into a light slumber again, Mark opened his eyes.
"Wrong about what..." He said as the limo drove on the icy winter road.
"Mordecai were here!" Someone shouted. He opened his eyes to see Cristi in front of him right in his face. He jumped, and got up following her. Everyone was outside waiting for Mordecai and Cristi.
He got out and stretched. He looked around, seeing them just off the highway, the cities tall buildings on the horizon. Mountains south of them, and forward to where everyone was was a path.
"Is this to the monster?" Mordecai asked Oliver as he followed him down the path the other three behind them.
"Ya, this place is pretty intense just stick with Mark and me and you'll be fine." Oliver said. Bass started to get louder and louder until they saw a big white building that looked like a fancy house in the woods. Cristi then ran ahead and knocked on the door of the building.
"Who is it?" A man said opening a small sliding opening as dub step blasted through.
Cristi showed her necklace and the man nodded closing the opening. They heard some locks unchain.
"Okay let's go." Cristi said excitedly running in. Oliver sighed, and waved for everyone to follow. They went right next to the giant dancing crowd, to a spot where there were tables under a giant wall made of glass where it stretched to the ceiling. It had a beautiful view of the forest.
Mordecai sat down Chloe and mark next to him and Oliver in front of him.
"How can such a big city have such a beautiful forest nearby?" Mordecai asked. Chloe kept looking down at her feet.
"The environment is still cherished." Oliver said sitting back. Mark nodded leaning his head on his hand. They all just sat around, as waitress had brought them drinks. Suddenly Cristi came into view, looking more energetic then before.
"Hey! Mordecai come on let's go dance!" Cristi said grabbing him.
"Mordecai! Don't say..." Oliver started as Mordecai went out of hearing distance. "Yes..."
Mordecai felt his arm being tugged and pushed really really fast. They finally made it out of the crowd where a door was. Cristi walked inside, still grabbing his arm.
"Another one Cristi?" A man at the counter asked.
"You know it!" She said and gave the mug to Mordecai. "Go on... drink it!"
"What is it?" Mordecai said looking at the green drink.
"Mountain Dew!" Cristi said. Mordecai shrugged and drank it, and finished it off.
"With ecstasy!" Mordecai spit out the last of the drink that was in his mouth. He felt his skin start to crawl, sweat, and jump around. He started shaking and jumped up more energy he can take.
"YA!" Mordecai said jumping onto the dance floor. Everyone backed up, looking at the spasming Mordecai. They all started to cheer and join him. He felt them start to take off his shirt and hoodie and next thing he knew he was topless.
"RIGHT ON BRO!" Someone shouted in the crowd.
"I wonder where Mordecai went." Mark asked. Suddenly they heard him screaming and he jumped out of the crowd. His pupils were tiny and he looked like a madman. Somehow his belt got wrapped around his head, and his pants were sagging.
"You said yes didn't you?" Oliver asked.
"What?" Mordecai asked. He stumbled back, and felt all that energy pour away faster than it came. He fell down onto the ground, his body ached with pain before he passed out.
"We better go help him." Oliver said getting up. Before they got to him, Cristi ran over and opened his mouth pouring in another glass.
"CRISTI NO!" They all shouted. Mark ran over to Mordecai who was still knocked out.
"WOO PARTY!" Mordecai screamed scaring everyone. Mark held him down as Oliver came over to hold him down too. "PARTY GUYS LETS GO!"
"SNAP OUT OF IT MORDECAI!" Oliver yelled.
"Hey those guys are trying to stop Mordo from partyin!" Someone said. Two guys picked up Oliver and Mark and threw them out of the club. Chloe ran after them.
"What are we supposed to do now?" Oliver asked.
"I don't know but we have to get in there and stop Mordecai. His body could shut down in the condition its in plus the extra ecstasy." Mark said before Cristi came out with Mordecai.
"Don't worry I found your party boy." She laughed. Mordecai had an expression on his face showing he had no idea what was going on. She went over and started to lick his neck sloppily moving up to his face.
Chloe looked up at her, and felt angry for the first time in a while.
"You... you..." Everyone Chloe say. "BITCH!"
"Chloe?" Oliver asked amazed. Chloe ran at Cristi and pushed her with all her might. Cristi rolled down the small hill behind them and into a mud pile.
Chloe ran to the limo, and Mark went after her.
"C'mon buddy. Let's get you fixed up." Oliver said putting his arm around him and helping him to the car.
"FINE! I DON'T NEED YOU GUYS! I'LL CALL MY OWN DADDY!" Cristi yelled. "MORDECAI YOU JERK!" she screamed louder than before and it echoed through the woods as everyone got into the limo. Everyone helped Mordecai onto a seat and Chloe sat next to him and Oliver sat on the other side.
"Okay, so... we can't take him home in this condition." Oliver said. "Chloe get his phone."
"I ain't reaching into another man's pant's!" She put her hand into his pocket,and grabbed his phone quickly. She kept trying to pull it out but no use.
"Oh..." Mordecai moaned.
"That isn't his phone..." Oliver said looking around awkwardly. She quickly pulled away her face blushing.
"Oh for god's sake." Mark said. He pulled hi to the ground and pulled his pants off and went into the pocket and got the phone.
"Great job Mark, now we have a man in his underwear and a belt on his head on the floor." Oliver said. Oliver looked through the contacts to find the mom contact and called.
"Hi Ms. Masten do you mind if Mordecai sleeps over one of our houses?"
"Not at all! But, why isn't he making the call?" she said in a worried tone.
"Because he... uh... is on the can! That's it."
"Oh, um okay well have fun!" Oliver hung up and threw the phone onto Mordecai.
"The can?" Mark asked.
"Next time you think of something. Now back to the problem at hand. Where is he gonna sleep. Not my house." Oliver said.
"My parents are having meetings today and tomorrow." Mark said. They both looked to Chloe.
"What?" Chloe asked.
"C'mon Chloe! We know your father is out of town." Oliver said. He did a puppy dog face as Chloe thought it over.
"F-Fine..." She said. Oliver gave her a hug and told Higgins where to take them.
"How are we supposed to take him in?" Mark asked.
"Don't worry... I HAVE A MASTER PLAN!" Oliver said triumphantly.
