“嘿！” 查理尖叫著。 “你把我的數學課本弄髒了！”
“好極了。” 查理鼠說道。 “洛基浣熊和丹尼狗是來救我們的！”
“你這個膽小鬼！” 哈利河馬尖叫道。 “你很快就會明白我是對的！！！”
One sunny summer’s day, two friends called Fred Fox and Charlie Chipmunk were walking home from school. Fred was a really cool guy who never went crazy, unlike Charlie who was a bit of a nerd.
Charlie was telling Fred all the wonders of a maths book, while Fred was pretending to listen but was really thinking about the pizza he was getting that night. Did I mention he loved pizza? Well, he does.
Anyway, Charlie was just “telling” Fred about a part that no one could understand when just then three bullies came out of nowhere and pushed them to the road!
“Hey!” screamed Charlie. “You got my maths book all dusty!”
“Why do you have that thing anyway?” said the really big bully who was called Harry Hippo. “School’s done for the year! You should be hanging out like me, a normal animal!”
“And me,” said the second bully who was called Robby Robin (and was not the brightest spark).
“And me,” said Roscoe Rabbit (who was smarter than Robby).
“Okay, boy (and girl), let’s go and beat these chumps up!” shouted Harry.
But before they could do anything, someone behind them shouted, “Pick on someone your own size, chump!” They looked behind them to see two friends of Charlie and Fred standing there, Rocky Raccoon and Danny Dog.
Unlike Fred, Rocky never really kept his cool. He was a bit aggressive, though quite a good fighter! Danny Dog was a bit wild and loved burgers.
“Yay,” said Charlie. “Rocky and Fred are here to save us!”
“Well not really,” said Rocky, “Though I am here to save Fred.”
“WHY!!??!!” asked Charlie.
“Because Fred is cool,” answered Rocky.
“Yeah, man,” said Fred.
“Now, go away to your house and go to sleep cause I hear the FULL MOON HORROR is going to be out tonight,” said Rocky.
“And I hear that he is extra hungry tonight,” added Danny.
“We do not believe you,” said Harry, “and to prove it we are going to camp out tonight and you will be proven wrong!”
“Well, we are not coming,” said Roscoe.
“Yeah, man,” said Robby.
“COWARDS!” screamed Harry. “You will soon see I am right! You all will!!”
Well, was he right? Nope. While Charlie, Fred, Rocky and Danny were playing Among Us, Harry was trying to survive the werewolf who was hot on his trail!
“Should we help him?” asked Robby.
“Probably not,” said Roscoe, while watching Harry getting his arm chewed on by the furry beast.
“Well, I might all well go help him,” said Robby. Then the Red Robin went to help his friend, also (like Harry) he made a big mistake!
“Boys,” said Roscoe (who was being a bit sassy).
“Help!” shouted Robby.
