Thanks for listening.
Didn’t mean to go all dad mode on you. Did you get some rest? Mom leave yet?
Good, let’s get started.
First, you’ll need your dad’s sword.
You probably don’t know what I’m talking about. Go look behind his dresser.
Got it? OK, now it might look a bit conspicuous if you go wandering around with that thing strapped to your waist, so if anyone asks, you’re headed to fencing club. It won’t be too far from the truth.
I know you have questions about the sword. All in good time.
Next, you need Bobby.
I know you haven’t been getting along the last couple days, so I’m going to shortcut this. He’s not really interested in Kelly. If you just talk to her, you’ll find out. The whole time they were just talking about you. You’re more his type than she is. He’s been working that out and getting over the fact that you’re crushing on her. You two will still be best friends when you get past this.
If you both survive.
Just kidding. It’s all going to be fine, I think.
Of course, I’ve been wrong before, I mean look at all the other Timothy Stewart Sedgewicks who have read this over the years. I’m pretty sure about this though. If you’ve read this far and everything’s been accurate then we’re on the same page.
Back to Bobby.
Go talk it out with him. He needs a friend right now, and if you and Kelly work out he gets two. We’ve got some time, but as soon as you’re done come back and show him this.
