Friends and Fiends

When Hayward was 8, his parents sent him to a camp for one month. But what they didn't know was that the camp was actually a boot camp, and no one was allowed to leave the camp until they were 19.
But when Hayward discovers a new friend, he also discovers new fiends. And still, Hayward and his new friend manage to ignore the fiends and do things no one has ever thought of doing before.


4. Chapter 4

Hayward awoke at eight that morning, since the leaders had given the whole camp an extra two hours to sleep, due to the news last night. He sat up in his little bed and turned to Isaac's bed. Isaac was curled up with a photo of his parents, sound asleep. Hayward awoke Isaac and got him up so they could check if the new boy had arrived with his things. In fact, Nick had arrived. He was sitting on Bentley's bed, with a book covering his face. Hayward tapped the book. Nick lowered the book from his face and put it down. 

Nick was skinny, with many freckles on his face and silky blonde hair. He was wearing a pair of ripped jeans, sandals, and a striped sweatshirt.

"Hi, I'm Hayward, and this is my friend Isaac. We're Frecklefaces, just like you!" Hayward greeted. He steeped a little closer to Nick's bed, causing him to trip over Bentley.

"Ow!" Hayward got up and dusted himself off. 

"Sorry, Bentley, I didn't see you there." Bentley growled and went back to sleep.

"I'm Nick," Nick muttered. 

"So, I'm guessing you want to know all about this camp, why you're here, and when you're leaving. So I'm going to bring you to Shawn, the oldest in Cabin 101. He's 18, and next month is his birthday," Hayward said. Nick nodded and got out of bed. Hayward took Nick by the arm and went to the far right corner of the cabin, where there were four bunk beds in a row. Hayward went to the first one and rang the little bell that was dangling from a hook. Shawn, a Pepperboy*, hopped down from the top bunk of the bed and stood next to Hayward.

"What's the matter?" Shawn asked. 

"This is the new Freckleface, Nick," Isaac explained. Shawn studied Nick from top to bottom and smiled.

"Alright. So I'm guessing you want to know everything about this camp, eh?" Shawn inquired. Nick nodded. "Well, the first thing I'll tell you is that there are four classes for boys in this camp. There are Pepperboys, which are the most common, Goggleeys**, Curlytops***, and Frecklefaces. As you can tell, you're a Freckleface. Okay, second, I'm going to tell you what this camp is about. This camp ain't what you think it is. You think you'll be here for one month, right?" Shawn asked. Nick nodded. Shawn pointed to Hayward and stepped into the bathroom. 

"What is he talking about?" Nick asked. Hayward sighed.

"Well, you're not going to be here for just a month, Nick. They keep you here forever. And every night, they lock up the shaft elevator so none of our sneaky parents can sneak in and bring us home. You're here until you're 19!" Hayward explained.

"And then what happens?" Nick asked. Hayward shook his head.

"You don't want to know," Hayward muttered. Nick nodded, frightened and followed the boys in Cabin 101 to the tables for breakfast.
