My parents and the rest of the Guild returned safely from fighting Xzbytb in his dimension. The weirdest thing was that they all thought that they had only been in that other dimension for a few hours...at most a day, when in fact they have been gone for several weeks. I guess time flows at a different rate in Xzbytb's dimension.
Unfortunately, time flowed normally here. While my parents were fighting an extra-dimensional giant alien squid three weeks went by with me at Mrs. Callahan's ranch with the rest of the kids of the Guild and not at Columbia Middle School. When I showed up back at school out of the blue everyone had a lot of questions as to where I had been. The teachers, the students, the principal but most of all my girlfriend Stacey Williams. For most everyone they accepted the answer that I was in juvie. Stacey however was not so easily placated. She was the only one who didn't believe that I had spent the last few weeks incarcerated at the juvenile hall and she was angry at me for not calling or telling her where I was. Angry doesn't actually convey the right emotion. She was livid. She cried, then she slapped me and then she cried some more. She told me about how she was so worried about me for the first week that I was gone. Then she tells me how she was angry the second week that I was gone. Then she tells me how in the third week Josh McIntyre asked her to a school dance...and she went.
My girlfriend is dating my bully and my best friend that is a girl (Tiny Girl) is dating my nemesis. This has not been a good week for me.
