The door bell rings.
“Mum, they’re here” I squeal.
“Well hurry up and let them idiot” She teases.
I poke my tongue out at her and walk towards the door.
Looking through the stained glass, I peer at the boys. Beau sits square on Daniels shoulders. James and Jai stand slapping each other jokingly. Luke laughs, trying to separate the two. I roll my eyes and open the door.
“Normal isn’t in your lifestyle is it?” I giggle.
“Normal? Where’s the fun in that?” James scoffs
Grabbing a plate of food, we all head outside to eat.
After a few moments, Luke hands me a video recorder from his backpack.
“What’s with this?” I ask.
“We all chipped in to buy it” Daniel announces.
“Yeah we were thinking about making videos or something. You know, just for fun” Jai pipes in.
“What like pranks and dares? I ask.
“Yep” Beau huffs.
They all nod their heads in agreement. Cleary this was something they had thought about for a long time. I turn the camera over in my hands. It’s a nice model; they must have been saving up for a while.
“There’s only one catch” Luke grins.
“Oh no, what is it now” I say rolling my eyes.
“Well, we’re the pranksters right? We will be doing the pranks. However we don’t have someone to film us. You could say we need a camera man....or woman” James cheekily laughs.
They all begin looking at me. I can’t believe this. They want me to film for them. This would be great!
“Well I don’t know who else would want to film you idiots” I joke; now smiling with them.
We finish eating and neaten the yard.
“Okay, we’ll do a practice video now so you guys can get the hang of it” I order.
They all stand in front of the camera awkwardly, avoiding the lenses of the camera.
“Come on guys, you got this! Just be yourselves!” I shout
With this, they all stand up straight and gaze towards the camera smiling, giddy with excitement.
“Great” I exclaim, pressing record.
