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.


6. Chapter 6

After breakfast, the kids all cleaned the tables, dishes, and benches. Then, everyone reported back to their cabin to get ready for Monday Schooling. They had school every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. At the school, they sorted the children into separate groups according to gender, age, and knowledge. Most of the time, the school taught the boys how to fight, how to read, write, and to run very fast. The girls learned to sew, cook, defend themselves just a little, how to clean, and how to read and write. 

Hayward put on his school uniform; a white collared shirt under a navy blue blazer with the camp symbol stitched on the pocket, khakis, and black loafers. Hayward then put on his newsboy cap, which all the boys hated to wear. Hayward pulled his gym bag out from under his bed and packed in his leather jacket, a plain white shirt, black leather pants, and black shoes. Nick sat in his bed, not knowing what to do. Apparently, Shawn had to attend a special meeting. 

Hayward swung his schooling bag over his shoulder and picked up his gym bag. He went over to Nick's bed and pulled out his gym bag.

"Hey, Nick," Hayward said. "We have to go to Monday Schooling." Nick looked up from his book. He looked confused.

"School?" Nick inquired. Hayward nodded and handed Nick his uniform. Hayward packed Nick's leather jacket, plain white shirt, black leather pants, and black shoes. 

"Hurry, or you'll get a whipping," Hayward warned. Nick winced and put on his uniform. 

When Nick had finished changing, Hayward clapped the newsboy hat onto Nick's head and expected to hear a series of whines, complaints, and begs. But Nick just took off the hat, stared at it with amusement, and gladly put it back on. 

"Wow, I just noticed that you are all wearing these wonderful hats!" Nick exclaimed. Hayward sighed.

"They're newsboy hats, Nick." Nick took the hat off again and observed it some more. 

"Wow, they sure are cool! I wish I'd known about these before," Nick said. Hayward gave Nick his bags and followed the rest of the boys outside.
