Gumball was driving up the road. It was pouring rain. Gumball was driving home from work, he was a surgeon. Work often consisted of paper work, blood, and late nights. Gumball pulled into his driveway and looked at his watch. 8:30. It was just another Thursday night. He walked into his house to his daughters Skye (age 15) and Marmalade (age 13) sitting on the couch watching America's Funniest Home Videos.
"Hi Daddy!" said Skye
"Hey Dad!" said Marmalade.
"Hey girls! Where are your brothers?"
"There over at John's house."
"Really? Because normally you would be there, Skye."
"Jackson and Gumdrop told me it was guy stuff, so I decided to stay here."
"Okay, where's Marissa?"
"She went to the Munoz's too." said Marmalade.
"I thought you said it was guy stuff." said Gumball.
"I did, when I asked Marissa about it, she got all defensive and stuff." said Skye.
"Mom's fried chicken for dinner tonight!" said Marmalade happily.
"HELL YES!" said Gumball dashing into the kitchen.
John greeted Gumdrop, Jackson, and Marissa at the door. They went upstairs to John's room.
"This video game better be as gory as you said, dude!" said Jackson.
"Have I ever been known to exaggerate?" said John.
"Yes. Yes you have." said Gumdrop.
"Yo John, can I talk to you outside for a minute?" asked Marissa.
"..............Am I in trouble?"
"Okay then............you guys can set up the game, I'll just be a minute."
John and Marissa went into the hallway.
"So what did you want to- MARISSA WHAT THE FUCK......." said John he faced Marissa to see she took off her shirt. "What the hell is the matter with you!? You know I'm dating Skye!"
"Oh come now, John! I know Skye is too much of a goody-good girl to satisfy a bad boy like you......" she said seductively.
"Whoa, who said I was a- uhm, you can put your shirt back on, your boobs are creepy -who said I was a bad boy?"
"I read your diary."
"It's called a journal! How did you-"
"Remember last Christmas when you and Skye were making out under the mistletoe?"
"I got bored so I started snooping around your room..........and I found it! You did some messed up shit when you were a kid, y'know that? Turns me on........"
"That's not who I am anymore, Marissa! I had ADD when I was little........I did weird stuff! None of which I'm too proud of............Whatever happened to all your other boyfriends?"
"Let's see............Dead, dead, pumping gas, Saw, pumping gas, dead."
"Long story. Look, just give me a chance!"
"No! Skye means a lot to me, and I really do love her! She's the reason I get up in the morning.......also it's hard to ignore my alarm clock."
"Look, just think about it. I'm not dropping the subject just yet."
A holler was heard from John's room.
"Hey John......I totally did not just break your XBox......" said Gumdrop innocently.
"Oh for christ's sakes!"
"Jackson, Gumdrop, we're going." said Marissa.
"Why?" asked Jackson.
"Uh....Mom texted me- it's dinner time."
Before leaving, Marissa whispered in John's ear. "If you ever tell Skye what happened here, I will personally make sure you never have kids."
This scared John immensely. He knew Marissa was known for doing insane things. But still, he did know that this was something Skye should know about. Their whole relationship was based on trust, after all.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~LATER THAT NIGHT~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Skye got out of the shower. She went into her room, and put on some clothes. She hopped in bed and turned on the TV that was placed on top of her TV. She saw she had a new message on her phone. She picked it up and opened it.
Skye: Heyyy <3
John: I need to talk to you about something.
Skye: ......Are you breaking up with me?
Skye: WHAT? WHY?
John: LOL Just Kidding. Still luv ya
Skye: Dammit John how many times have I told you not to joke about that? Lol! So what did you want to talk about?
John: Earlier tonight, when Marissa and Gumdrop and Jackson came to my house, Marissa pulled me into the hall.
John: She took off her shirt, and tried to seduce me.
Skye: SHE WHAT? You've got to be shitting me!
John: I shit you not, my love, I shit you not.
Skye: Oh god what happened next?
John: Well, I told her put her shirt back on (her boobs scare me i dunno why) and I basically told her to step off.
Skye: What did she say?
John: She said she would back off....for now. She also told me if I told you about this she'd make sure I'd never be able to have kids. So don't tell her I told you! I do plan on having kids one day......
Skye: Alright, but still, what are we gonna do?
John: Your part ghost, Can't you like fight other ghosts?
Skye: I'm also part cat, so I have both types of DNA. Marissa has all ghost DNA. So no, I wouldn't be able to take her on. It's like a rock, paper scissors thing.
John: Hmm.......okay, I got an idea, but we're not gonna like it.
John: I got 300 bucks this month for working at my Uncle's diner downtown.....I could use the money to pay Naval to give us some protection.
Skye: What makes you think he'll want to help us?
John: Naval's a sucker for huge wads of cash.
John: But that's only if Marissa finds out.
Skye: Right. Can you come over tomorrow? We haven't had any time together in like a week John: Ok. C u then
Skye: luv u
John: luv u 2
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE NEXT DAY~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John walked over to the Watterson's house. It was noon. He rang the doorbell. Skye answered.
"John!" she said, hugging her boyfriend.
"Hey Skye! Marissa's not here is she?"
"Nah, my Mom dragged her shopping."
They went upstairs.
"I got Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan on DVD!"
"Lucky! I've been looking all over for that? Where did you get it?"
"Let's watch it!" Skye popped the DVD in the player. John sat down on the bed and Skye sat on his lap. The lied down, John wrapping his arms around Skye's waist.
It was times like this that John wish he would be 15 forever.
