It was a somewhat peaceful, summer morning weekend here in the little community of Peach Creek as we zoom in on one of the neighborhoods; the Peach Creek Cul-De-Sac. And in the second house on the right of the entrance, thats where we start this story. We see a figure in his room, sleeping in his circular-shaped bed. He was a thirteen boy that seemed to be just a smidge too short for his age and had only three, long strands of dark blue hair on his head.
His name is Eddy Wendell. He was starting to wake up from his slumber, stretching a little as he did; he showed his dark, foggy blue orbs. Eddy noticed what time it was now; seven oclock. He made a little smirk to himself; time to think of a scam for the kids to fall for.
Eddy then proceeded to get himself dressed for the day without any hassle on time. He wore a yellow t-shirt that went right to his waistline. The shirt had a purple collar and a red stripe coming down the right side of his shirt. He wore baggy blue jeans with a silver wallet chain coming out of his front left pocket and also wore red tennis shoes.
Eddy then proceeded to leave his house after he got dressed. He walked across the street and down the sidewalk to get to his friends house. His friend, Double D, was waiting for him at the front of his house. His other friend, Ed, was also there waiting for him.
Ed was a tall, thirteen year old boy with a red-tinted buzz cut, a unibrow and had hazel, green-brown eyes. He was wearing a red and white striped t-shirt that was underneath a long, green jacket that went a little past his waist, baggy blue jeans, and black tennis shoes.
Double D was a middle sized thirteen year old boy that had only three strands of black hair coming out of the back of his white-striped, black sockhat and had dark, jade green eyes. He wore a red t-shirt that went past his waist, purple carpenter pants that went to his knees, and blue tennis shoes with long, red socks that went to his mid calf.
Ed was the one to notice Eddy coming to them, Hi Eddy! greeted Ed as Eddy came over to his two friends and Double D turned his attention to Eddy.
Hey guys, Eddy stated with a weak smile, Whatre you guys doing out here?
Well, unless if I heard incorrectly from the other kids, we are about to have a new neighbor coming here in about a minute, Double D explained to him.
Really? questioned Eddy, Why didnt the others say anything?
Maybe because they want him to join their side; and not ours, Double D stated.
Oooo, shiny car! Ed said with a point of his finger as a car soon drives past them on the road to their right. It went straight towards the newest house on the block.
Well, gentleman, Double D started to say as he turned towards the other two Eds, Are we not going to go say hello? It would be rude not--
New kid!!! Ed shouted with glee as he started to run towards where the car parked.
Ed! both Double D and Eddy shouted as they soon run after the tall Ed, Wait up, Lumnox! Eddy continued to banter as he and Double D were finally by Eds side.
They soon saw the new kid come out of the car. It was
a girl. She had medium length, dark chestnut brown hair. She wore a hunter green t-shirt that went to her waistline that had two, white vertical lines on the right side of her shirt. She wore a pair of khakis that went a little past her mid shin and a pair of black and white tennis shoes with white footy socks to put the whole look together.
The girl soon looked up to see the three boys; she had dark, chocolate brown eyes that were slightly covered by her thick, oval-shaped glasses. They widened with surprise, Oh, h-hello, she waved as she looked away in shyness, adjusting her glasses slightly.
Hello, new kid! Ed greeted as he came up to her and shook her right hand/arm and pulled it up and down like a lever, Nice to see some one new, Im Ed!
T-Thank you Ed
the girl stuttered, greatly surprised at Eds burst of strength in shaking her hand/arm. She recoiled her hand and arm a little as she turned her eyes towards the other two.
Oh! Err, well; my name is Eddward with two Ds, so everyone calls me Double D instead, Double D stated with an all friendly smile. There was a slight pause before Double D gently shoved his elbow into Eddys side.
Hey! Im getting there Sockhead, Eddy snapped slightly to Double D as he then turned back towards the girl, The names Eddy; Eddy Wendell, he continued as he jabbed his right thumb into his chest.
What is your name? questioned Double D with a polite tone, noticing that the girl has yet said her own name.
J-Jennifer, the girl replied, lowering her head with a bit of shyness once again.
Ed blinked a little at her behavior as he then started to stare down at the ground,
What do you see on the ground? he asked innocently.
Oh, I-I dont see anything, Jennifer replied to the big Ed as she fidgeted with her thumbs a little, Its just a bad habit of mine.
Ed blinked mindlessly once again, processing the information, Ohh
Hey, ya know what? Eddy started to say as everyone turned towards him, Why dont we show ya around the Cul-De-Sac? Youre gonna have to know the place if youre gonna live here, ya know?
Double D seemed a bit surprised at his offer, Since when does Eddy give tours; and for free, strangely enough?
T-Thatll be fine, Jennifer replied as she made a weak nod of the head.
Good, then follow us! Eddy stated as he then started to walk off towards the middle of the neighborhood. The two other Eds soon followed with Jennifer walking hesitantly behind them.
Hey Dorks! called out a voice from behind them as everyone turned around to see a boy coming up to them, Are you tryin to rip off the new kid? asked the boy who wore a red baseball cap; it was the jock of the neighborhood.
Of course not, Kevin, Double D slightly retorted, We were only showing her around.
Uh-huh; right, Kevin replied with a roll of his eyes.
Will ya just make like a tree and leave, Eddy stated to the jock, We can show her around ourselves, ya know.
Psshh, whatever, Kevin stated back as he turned around to walk away, Shes probably gonna end up like you three dorks anyway.
stupid jock, Eddy growled slightly as Ed blinked his eyes at a rapid pace.
Double D turned his attention back to Jennifer after hearing something unusual coming from her; she was crying, Jennifer? Is there something wrong
? he questioned as he got the other two Eds attention.
H-He reminded me o-of some people I-I use to be friends with
Jennifer started to stutter, T-They started to t-treat me like garbage; a-after I told them I-I had
she paused for a moment before saying, I-I have Aspergers.
Thats horrible, Double D stated afterwards as he placed his left hand on her right shoulder, People should not treat you like that because of that; or anything else, of that matter.
Uh, translation, Eddy started to ask, Whats As-pa-bur-gers?
Bless you, Eddy! Ed stated with a goofy grin.
Asperger Syndrome is a form of Autism, which is a brain development disorder; except Apergers is a lighter case of high functioning Autism, Double D explained, Its very common in boys and rare for a girl to have.
Oh, Im sorry, I-I didnt mean to--
I-Its alright, Jennifer replied as she wiped away a few tears, I couldnt have explained it better myself, she then looked up to the three Eds, Arent you three going to show me around some more?
oh yeah! Eddy stated, Lets finish off the tour!
Jennifer could only smile as she followed the three Eds to wherever the tour was taking her, Maybe this place wont be so bad after all
