Ryan Baker’s StoryHi, I am Ryan Baker. I have blonde hair, tan skin, blue eyes, brown shoes, and lots of freckles. Today I chose to wear a yellow shirt saying Sunrise Stampede 5K. I also wore jeans with a grass stain on the left leg and it was a little torn on the left leg. It all started when my mom announced about the agents calling…..”Ryan! The Agents called again!” “Aw, MAN!!” The agents were people I didn’t like. I never got any decent time to just relax. When I almost finally had time to sit back, relax, and enjoy myself, the agents always called. “What do they want??” I asked my mom in return. “Ryan, they say they have another mission.” said my mom. “What is the mission?” I shouted back. “Something about a jewel, dear. They want you to meet them at the Top Secret Missions Headquarters.” my mom told me. I always think everything is important, so when she said that, I got a jolt of nervousness and excitement. I ran to my closet, nearly ripped the closet door off the wall, grabbed my jacket and zipped out the door to my silver truck.* * *By now you should have probably guessed I am a teenager because I can drive. About 20 minutes since I got in my car, I arrived at Top Secret Missions Headquarters. I opened the door to my car, got out, closed the door, locked my car and hastily ran to the Top Secret Missions building, nearly falling flat on my face because I tripped on a tiny little rock. When I got inside, I noticed another kid coming the same way I was going. He kept a good 20ft away from me, and kept glancing at me. He looked like me but with brown hair, green eyes, black shoes, and a green shirt saying ” I invented video games” and showed a picture of a stick figure playing video games on a TV made of rock in the time of the dinosaurs. It also said “ME” and had an arrow pointing from that to the stick figure. He also was wearing nice blue pants made of silk. About 4 minutes later, that kid ducked away into a scanning compartment. I then walked up to the Top Secret Missions Leader. “Hello, Mike,” I said. “Hey Ryan. Now listen closely, you need to do a mission for me. This mission takes place at a lab here in Maine. There is a cliff right to the lab for easy escape. I need you to go into that lab and get a jewel that is red and shaped like a little spear. The jewel is in section C-562. Can you get it and bring it back here?” “Yes sir. I can do that,” I responded.* * *”I knocked him out!!” I thought, freaking out. I was freaking out so badly, I just dragged that kid out the door, up the stairs, through the trap door, out the door, completely forgetting to grab the jewel. I came to the cliff and climbed down, which was REALLY hard because I was a bad climber, I was holding a weight heavier than me, and I was climbing with two feet and ONE hand! When I got to the bottom, I put him in my car, hooked his SUV to my truck, got in, strapped my seatbelt on me and on that kid, and drove off. I went to every house I knew and asked if they had a son looking like this and then I showed them the kid. I finally got him home and got back to my house at 3:07am, but he was still unconscious.About a month after I started school, the first morning of the first day didn’t go well. I walked into my class late by two minutes and Mr. White (The Teacher) introduced himself to me. I felt embarrassed because it was in the middle of class! I put my backpack on the backpack rack and jumped when I turned around. Why? I saw that kid from summer scowling at me. He looked like a REALLY mad lion! And I thought I would never see him again! What was worse was I had a desk right next to him!!! Recess didn’t go well either. The kid walked up to me and grabbed my shirt, balling the leather in his hand. Then he lifted me up and pushed my back up against the cold, hard brick wall. “Did you get the jewel???” he asked, madly. “The jewel??….OH MY GOSH!! The jewel!!!!” I said back to him. I hadn’t gotten that jewel. I had gotten caught up in something else, so I forgot to get it. “No. I didn’t get it!” I said, shakily. “Oh, GOD! How could you be so stupid! Now some kind of giantproblem is going to happen!!!” he yelled. We fought more in the classroom after recess too. He yelled at me for being stupid and not getting the jewel and I yelled at him to stop yelling at me. “KIDS!!” Mr. White shouted. “Let’s just resolve this conflict so we aren’t angry and I am happy.” Then we had to go up in front of the class, which was humiliating. In the front of the class we had to apologize, work it out kindly, and then call the agents. I thought “The Agents” would stay secret, but it didn’t. We picked up the phone and dialed 546-947-6518. “Hello. Agent 3 speaking.” Said an agent on the other end. “Hi. I am Ryan, and that other kid the boss sent is here with me. I somehow got sidetracked and didn’t take the jewel, and I am calling to see what we can do about it.” I said. “Oh. You are pretty lucky, though. When you didn’t return with the jewel, we sent Agent 7 to check if you got it. Of course, he saw you didn’t take the jewel so he got it, raced out of there, and brought it here. It’s ok. But you were really lucky! The boss would have chewed you out if we didn’t send Agent 7 to check.” Said Agent 3. “Well, we are both REALLY SORRY!!!!!!” I said. “It’s ok. You are fine now.” Agent 3 told me. I said “Bye”, put the phone down and happily looked at Mr. White and that kid. ” Awesome!” we all whispered.Michael Jones’s story It was Tuesday and I was standing right next to the phone for no apparent reason. Hi, my name is Michael Jones. I live at 367 Red Z-axes Road. I have the zip code of 80065. But my mom says strangers can break in with information like that, so I’d better not tell any more. Anyway, I got a call from the Top Secret Missions manager asking for me to meet him at the Top Secret Missions building at 5:00pm in the message. I also was wearing nice blue pants made of silk, blue shoes, brown hair, tan skin, green eyes, and a bunch of freckles. And I was wearing a green shirt saying ” I invented video games” and showed a picture of a stick figure playing video games on a TV made of rock in the time of the dinosaurs. It also said “ME” and had an arrow pointing from that to the stick figure. I also had a car. A black SUV as a matter of fact. Then, at about 3:58pm, I got in my SUV and rode away to the Top Secret Missions Headquarters. When I got there, it was 4:25pm, so I still had a good 34 minutes before I had to meet the manager. Though I still had 34 minutes, I decided to walk inside the building. While I waited, I checked out the items they were selling to see if I wanted to buy one.At 4:51pm, I was thinking I should go over to the manager and as I was making my way over to him, “The Kid” (that kid I said I looked like) strutted in through the doors. He looked like me only with blond hair, blue eyes, and brown shoes. He wore jeans with a grass stain on the right leg, a little tear on the left leg, and a yellow shirt saying Sunrise Stampede 5K. I kept 20ft away from him and he also kept glancing at me. I was starting to feel uncomfortable. To extinguish that feeling I ducked into a scanning compartment about 4 minutes later. As that kid walked on, I put my head up and peered at him through a little square on the scanning compartment. He walked up to Mike, the manager, and talked to him about something mysterious…..and about 2 minutes later he walked away. Then I walked up to the boss at exactly…um….5:00pm and, uh, 31 seconds! “Hey, Mike.” I said, seriously. “Hi, Michael. Now listen. I don’t really trust that other kid, so I’m telling you because I trust you. Here, in Maine, there is a lab. I need you to go and get a jewel from section C-562 that is red and shaped like a small spear. There is also a cliff in a 27 foot radius around the lab, for easy escape. Can you do this for me?” Mike asked. “Definately! I can do it,” I told Mike. Then I turned around and walked to my SUV.* * *It was Friday and I had woken up at 8:26am. I had just finished eating my delicious scrambled eggs when I remembered I needed to go to the lab. Oh, did I mention I live in Maine? Well, after breakfast, I went to my car and drove to the only cliff I knew of, in Maine. I parked at in a dirt area at the bottom of the cliff, got out, locked the car, took out climbing materials from my backpack, and started climbing the cliff. When I was half way up the cliff, a silver truck came up the dirt road and parked right next to my car. Then that kid that I saw at the Top Secret Missions Headquarters climbed out of the silver truck. Then the kid walked up to the cliff, studied it, and started climbing it, though he went slower because he had no climbing supplies. By now, I was 3/4ths up the cliff and that other kid was just starting. When I finally got to the top, I saw the lab. It was orange and very jazzy. At first sight, I may not look like a lab to you, but it was a lab. I walked inside and was startled because I saw inventions scattered all over the floor. Then, (of course) I saw a scientist in a white jacket working on an experiment. Suddenly he whirled around and asked me “What are YOU doing here??” Then I got into a llooonnnnnggggggggggggggg conversation, which I didn’t appreciate. After talking about nonsense, I asked “Is there a trap door somewhere around here?” “Oh, yes. In that corner,” said the scientist, pointing to the left of the room. “Thanks.” I murmured. Then I walked over to the corner. Yep, there was a brown trap door of course. I opened it just as the glass doors in the front of the lab opened. Who walked in? The kid! I practically jumped down the trap door. I landed with a HARD thud. As I got up, I saw a brown door and, next to it in a green label box, it said section C-562. Then I pulled open the door after an 11yd dash, and inside? A red jewel shaped like a small spear. I moved over to the jewel. It was on a little metal stick that had holes around it. I guessed the holes shot out electricity. Well, that wouldn’t matter. I put my hands over it and as I was reaching for it the door flew open. I jumped. I have never been that scared. Guess I forgot about that other kid. Well, he walked in and pushed me over. I got up and said “What did you do that for??” “I want the jewel!!” He yelled at me. “No, ME!!!!” I screamed. He tackled me and we got into a fist fight. But all I remember was a tan colored fist in my face, and then everything was pitch black. I guess I got knocked out.About a month after that, I started school. That kid from summer came to school in my classroom on the first day. I scowled at him. I looked like a REALLY mad lion! And I thought I would never see that guy again! What was worse was I had a desk right next to him!!! Later, at recess, I walked up to that kid and grabbed his shirt, balling the leather in my hand. Then I lifted him up and pushed his back up against the cold, hard brick wall. “Did you get the jewel???” I asked, madly. “The jewel??….OH MY GOSH!! The jewel!!!!” He said back to me. “No. I didn’t get it!” He said, shakily. “Oh, GOD! How could you be so stupid! Now some kind of giant problem is going to happen!!!” I yelled. We fought more in the classroom after recess too. I yelled at him for being stupid and not getting the jewel and he yelled at me to stop yelling at me. “KIDS!!” Mr. White shouted. “Let’s just resolve this conflict so we aren’t angry and I am happy.” Then we had to go up in front of the class, which was humiliating. In the front of the class we had to apologize, work it out kindly, and then call the agents. I thought “The Agents” would stay secret, but it didn’t.
