one time there were 2 boys named Tony and Joel. Tony and Joel were asking their parents if they could go to Starved Rock but Joel never really wanted to go so when he asked his dad he was hopeing his father would say no.
Hey dad, can i go to Starved Rock with Tony?
Tony and Joel were on their way to Starved Rock until Tony stopped at the river that was close to Starved Rock. Tony wanted to swim but Joel on the other hand didn't so Tony called Joel a chicken, then Joel dared Tony to swim to the sandbar.
I dare you to swim to the sandbar
Your a chicken
when Joel got to the sandbar he couldn't see Tony. Joel thought that Tony was playing a prank on him but after caling Tonys name a couple of times Joel knew that something was wrong. Joel went to go help and was told to report the incident to the police but Joel was scared that he was going to get in trouble so he didn't tell anyone.
Tony where are you? If this is a prank it's not funny!
when Joel got home, he lied to bolth his parents and the cops about what happend with Tony. why? Because he didn't want to get in trouble by either of them.
Do you have any clue about what happend to your friend?
No sir, I don't. all I remember is that I didn't feel good so I went home.
later on, when it was night Joel's dad came to check up on him, Joel finally decided to tell the truth about what happened to Tony. Joel's dad knew it was a mistake so he forgave Joel. after that Joel asked his dad if he could stay with Joel until he fell asleep.
I forgive you, and yes I can stay with you until you fall asleep
Dad, the truth is that Tony called me a chicken so I dared him to swim to the sandbar... can you please stay with me until I fall asleep?
