Chapter 8: Dracs and Killjoys :)

The next morning i woke up alone. This time the note was on the pillow. "Dren we had a killjoy call. were very bust these days. Your sister is there if you need any thing. Please don't try to get up. I don't want you to get hurt even worse. Love, Ghoul" Wow hes really worried about my leg, but i think i can stand on it today. I carefully stood. It didn't hurt much. I walked over to the door and leaned on the door way. I opened the door and said "Ritalin help me!" Ritalin came running. "Why the hell are you up and walking?!" She said as i threw my arm around her and started walking down the hall. "Cause im stubborn." As we walked into the main room i noticed Kobra Kid sitting on the couch. "Hey why didn't you go with the others?" I asked as Ritalin helped me sit next to him. He put a small pillow on the coffee table and propped my leg up. "Babysitting." He said and laughed a little. "HEY?! baby sitting my butt!!" I was trying so hard not to cus cause i knew he'd freak. "Hey those were my orders so i stayed behind." He smiled at me and laughed a little. "So when did they leave?" I asked and glanced from Ritalin to Kobra. "You just missed 'em" He looked at me with a straight face and managed a smile. "Well that sucks! They probably wont be back for hours." I said as I tried not to move my leg in the process. "hey they will be back though. So what do you wanna do til then?" He smiled at me again. It was getting kinda creepy. I looked at him and smiled back "Well i can't move so how bout a board game. Me and Ritalins favorite game is in my backpack." I said smiling at Ritalin. "You kept our home made game?!" She sounded shocked. "Yeah! When you left it's all i had left!" I smiled real big and watched her run to Ghouls room. She walked back with the old metal lunch box that we had spray painted together. She took everything out and set up the game board. We called the game Killjoys and Dracs. Whoever got a six on their first roll had to be the Drac. If you didn't you were a Killjoy. The object of the game was to get every Killjoy who was set up around the zones. The board was a Zone map taped to a piece of cardboard. We didn't have anything else to do. We made this game out of things around the house. "Our parents were warming up to our Killjoy attitude and knew that one day we'd be gone. So they gave us this map and said make a game. I think they just wanted us to know the Zones really well." Ritalin said and handed out the dice. Kobra rolled first. 3. "hey good roll. My turn." I rolled a 6. "You and 6s Dren." Ritalin laughed and rolled the dice. 1. She always gets a 1. "UGH I hate bein Dracs. The game is rigged so the Dracs always lose." I looked at Kobra who had no clue what the hell he was doing. We played the game for a few hours. It was a long game. Kobra won though. Good thing. He broke Ritalin's streak. I was clapping and laughing. Kobra hugged me and said "Why haven't you showed this game before today??" He looked at me with a big grin on his face. "I was waiting til Ritalin got back." I smiled at Ritalin and turned back to Kobra. He was just staring at me. "Why are you staring at me?" I asked and all he did was shrug. Oh well. The front door swung open and Ghoul walked in and looked at us. "Hey how exactly did you get in here?" He said and scratched the back of his head. "I walked how else would i get in here? Ritalin helped me. We played Dracs and Killjoys!" I said and smiled at him. "As long as your okay." He said and walked over to me and kissed me. His lips were as soft as ever. He walked into the kitchen and was looking through the fridge. I glanced at Kobra whose face had turned bright red. "You okay?" I asked very concerned. "Oh it's nothing im fine." He said as he stood and walked to his room. I looked at Ritalin who just shrugged. I mouthed the words "Go find out" She immediantly stood and walked to Kobra's room. "What was that about?" Ghoul said as he sat down next to me. "Beats me" I replied and looked at him. "How's your leg? I looked at it this morning and it looked a little swollen" He looked very worried. "It hurts a little, but i think I'll live" I smiled at him and he kissed the top of my head. "Good so how does this game thing work?" He asked and I explained it to him and we sat there playing and laughing. He got Dracs this time so I was pretty happy. It was a great way to waste hours.
