*in head* I can't lose my intelligence people will make fun of me again
Charlie's "friends" invites him to a bar for a party. Charlie's "friends" make a fool out of him by making him show the ladies how he cleans because he is a janitor. Charlie notices that his "friends" are making fun of him and they might not be his real friends.
Charlie went back to the lab almost every week to make sure he was still smart. While he was there he started to try and race Algernon but he was acting weird. Algernon bit Charlie, Charlie knew that Algernon was regressing and he soon would be to.
Charlie was determined to stay smart. Charlie read books but couldn't understand them anymore. He read every day to make sure he didn't loose any of his intelligence but sadly it didn't work. Charlie continued to study. He was instructed by Dr. Nemur and Dr. Strauss not to go back into the lab but he disobeyed them. Charlie found out that Algernon had died.
Charlie figured out that the doctors didn't care for him or Algernon they were just an experiment. Charlie had a funeral for Algernon because the doctors where going to just throw him away . Charlie was sad that his animal friend was now dead and the same thing was happening to him.
Charlie locked everybody out of his life because he was losing his intelligence, even Ms. Kinnian. Charlie flew to a new place because he was so embarrassed of his regression and didn't want to go back to the people who made fun of him when he wasn't smart. He wrote a letter to Ms. Kinnian and the doctors saying that he left and reminding them to put flowers on Algernon's grave for him.
