One day my friends asked me if I wanted to go to the old building on Main Street.
I said, "But, isn't it haunted?"
My friends called me a chicken, but then I said, "Fine!"
"Yes!" Wade said. "Come on! let's go!"
"Now?!" I yelled. "Oooops! I didn't mean to yell!"
"Of course. What other time do we have?" Cameron said.
"Well, ummmm....I have to go to my Dad's office and do my job," I said, trying to convince them. It was Tuesday, and I really have to do my job on Wednesday.
