1635 words - 7 pages

"R.J., wake up for work," Mrs. Garbini yelled from downstairs.It was Sunday morning, and R.J. needed to get up for his weekend job doing construction with his Uncle Joe. R.J. always enjoyed going to work. He and his uncle were very close, and they always had such a good time together. Construction was also something R.J. had enjoyed ever since he was little, even if it was just building something out of blocks. He had a lot of dedication for his job; he was never late, and never called out sick!About ten minutes had passed, and Mrs. Garbini yelled up the stairs once more, "R.J. come on down; your breakfast is getting cold. Thinking that her son would be coming down in just a minute, she decided to go and take her shower. She wanted to get an early start today; she had a ton of things to do, and no time to waste.When she got out of the shower, she went downstairs to clean the dishes from R.J.'s breakfast. To her surprise, when she went downstairs, her son's breakfast was still sitting in the exact spot, untouched. "He was probably just running late since he was out at a party last night, and didn't have time to eat," she said to herself. She then went out to the garage to grab herself a bottle of Snapple. As she opened the garage door, she saw R.J.'s brand new Ferrari still sitting in the garage, unmoved from the day before. She ran back into the house, up the stairs, and bursts into R.J.'s room, but he wasn't there. A million different things are rushing through her head by now. "Maybe Joe picked R.J. up this morning," she thought hopefully. She ran to her bedroom, picked up the phone, and frantically dialed R.J.'s cell phone number. There was no answer. She then tried Joe's number."Hello," answered Joe.""Hi Joe, its Mary.""Oh, hi Mary. How are you? Is R.J. on his way here?""Actually, that is why I am calling you, I was hoping that you had picked him up this morning because he isn't here and his car is still in the garage.""No, I didn't, and I haven't heard from him either, which isn't like him at all," replied Joe."I know its not," replied Mary nervously, "I am going to make a few phone calls, and try to find him. If you hear anything from him, please call me.""Ok, will do," answered Joe, "Talk to you later, buh-bye."Mary thought back to the night before. She and her husband had gone to bed early that night. She knew that R.J. was going to a party at his girlfriend, Kim's house, and that Chris, his best friend had picked him up. "Maybe he fell asleep at Kim's house," she thought to herself. She decided to call Kim."Hello," answered Mrs. Galle, Kim's mother"Hi Debbie, its Mary Garbini.""Hi Mary! How are you?""I'm doing ok, and yourself?" answered Mrs. Garbini."Everything is fine here, what can I do for you?" replied Mrs. Galle."I was actually wondering if R.J. was there," asked Mrs. Garbini."No, not that I know of, but let me just go downstairs and ask Kim. I thought she said that he wasn't spending the night last night because of work, but let me just check. Give me just a second," said Mrs. Galle.About thirty seconds later, Kim got on the phone."Hello," she said sleepily."Hi Kim, its R.J.'s mom. Have you seen him by any chance?" answered Mrs. Garbini."No, he left here at about 2:15 this morning," Kim replied, Why?""Well, he never came home last night, and he didn't show up for work this morning. We have no idea where he is.""Oh my goodness," said Kim, "Have you talked to Mr. Garbini?""No, not yet. He got called in to the hospital on an emergency, and I just wanted to make sure he wasn't by you. He always calls or lets somebody know what is going on and where he is," replied Mrs. Garbini."Your right," said Kim."Can you tell me everything about last night?" asked Mrs. Garbini, "It might help us figure out where he is.""Sure," said Kim, "Like I said before, he left here at about 2:15. He was one of the last few people to leave, except for the people who were sleeping at my house.""How was he supposed to be getting home?" asked Mrs. Garbini."Well, originally, Chris was supposed to be bringing him home, but at about 10:45 last night, Chris's mom called his cell phone because his sister had gone into labor. I believe he said that he was going to take the shortcut through the woods home," explained Kim, "He told me he was going to call me when he got home, but then I fell asleep, and when I woke up earlier this morning and I didn't see a missed call from him, I assumed that he had fallen asleep as soon as he had gotten home. I figured that he was at work by now.""Thank you for all of your help, Kim," replied Mrs. Garbini, "if you hear anything or think of anything else, please call me immediately.""Ok," answered Kim, "I hope everything is ok. Bye."When she got off of the phone, she decided to call Chris, maybe he had decided to go to the hospital to see Chris's sister and the baby since they were like family. When she called Chris, he told her that he hadn't seen R.J. since last night when he left the party.Mrs. Garbini was getting even more and more nervous. She decided to have her husband paged at the hospital. When he got on the phone, she explained the whole story. He told her to go down to the police and explain everything and that he would meet her there.When she met her husband at the police station, she had tears in her eyes. She couldn't even begin to imagine what could have happened to her son. When they filed the missing person's report, the sergeant told the Garbinis that no action could be taken until twenty-four hours from the last time someone saw him. Since Mr. Garbini was the best known surgeon around, he pulled a couple of strings and the search began immediately.First, they questioned the Garbini's about the day before. They asked questions like: Was everyone on good terms when R.J. left the house? Would R.J. have any reason to runaway? The list seemed to go on forever. Afterward, they went over to Kim's house. They had everybody that had attended the party the night before report to Kim's house. They questioned each person. Everyone gave pretty much the same story. Then they went on a search through the woods. During the search, someone found the sweatshirt that R.J. had been wearing the night before, along with his Varsity jacket. The strange thing about these objects was that they were not torn or ripped. They were still perfect. It did not look like he was attacked at all, but more like he had just disappeared.Mrs. Garbini decided to call his cell phone again. When she called someone or something picked up saying, "ErEllo." (Hello in English)"Hello?" asked Mrs. Garbini."ErEllo," replied the person again. (Hello.)"Who is this?" asked Mrs. Garbini."Mre irs Watinami." (This is Watinami)"Ok Watinami. Why do you have R.J.'s phone, and where is he?""R.J. irs wret Mamimani breinrg trersted. Dre vrant fro flrid rourt rohw rhe gre sissfret drom rus" (R.J. is with Mamimani being tested. We want to see how he is different from us.)"What do you mean, 'different from us?" asked Mrs. Garbini."Dre wion star elexia sar hearly sissfret drom rim wion rarnet redrth." (We here on Star Elexia are much different from him on planet Earth.)Mrs. Garbini was getting very frantic at this point. "When can I have my son back?" she asked."Roo gows....rarry grever," it replied. (Who knows....maybe never)Mamimani then entered the room screaming something and hung up the phone on him. No one has heard from R.J., Mamimani, or Watinami since. I can tell you this much though, no one ever walks through those woods at night anymore, and the few that have also disappeared!The End
