Stockbridge, GeorgiaA Chapter by Lizzie_Madrid
It just so happens, the first stop on our national tour, was just a few hours away. Stockbridge, Georgia. I have never honestly been here before, but I kinda wasn’t ALLOWED to go anywhere.
“It should be just up ahead.” James told me. He had a certain youthful spark in his eyes, he hadn’t done anything this fun for awhile probably.
“There it is!” I pointed. I was getting very small butterflies. I mean, we were going to get KICKED OUT of WAL*MART!
He pulled up in the parking lot of this big, blue, monster of a store. “You ready?” He asked, kissing the knuckles of my left hand.
I scoffed, “Never been more ready in my life! Let’s do this thing! ”
And with that, we got out of the car, and set out for our first victim.
#1. Pretend to be Dead
James told me what we had to do on the way in. We were both smiling wildly as we stood in the entrance. These people wouldn’t know what hit them.
We split up after a knowing nod. I was to head to the food department while he was to go to the clothing department.
We had got here right in time. Everyone was getting off their evening shifts for work, so the place was pretty crowded. And a fair few were in the meats. Where I was about to stage my first act.
I walked as unsuspicious as I could over to the low shelves. When I was pretty sure no one was gonna see me, well all except for the cameras, which I winked at the nearest one, then fell over onto the shelf with the pork ribs.
And may I just say, it was FREAKIN’ COLD!!! I had landed facedown so no one would really be able to tell I was breathing. It seemed like forever until I heard someone yell, “Oh My GOD!!! There is someone dead over here!” Then I felt breathing right on my neck. So annoying! And that started a commotion. And faintly, I could hear raised voices across the store. I smiled inwardly, James was doing well.
I was getting quite a good inward laugh from what everyone was saying until I heard someone talking about calling the police. At that, I pushed myself to a standing position and yelled, “I’M ALIVE!!! Hallelujah!!!” I took off running then, leaving the screams behind and somewhere ahead of me. Now to the next meeting point.
#2. Fish in Ornamental Vases Around the Store
I spotted James up ahead looking slightly jostled, like he had to fight his way out. Which he probably had to do. I smiled, “How’d it go?”
“Well the affect was perfect but I think I was groped way to many times for my taste.” He grimaced.
I laughed so hard it took me awhile to talk. “So did you get the keys for the fish tanks?”
“Yup,” He jingled the keys, “And while waiting I got a few ready.” He motioned to the small box that looked like it had 6 bags ready me.
“Okay. Be back in a little.” I grabbed two bags, and kissed him on the cheek.
I set off a few sections down before I came across the display of vases. Doing a quick 360°, I quickly untied the first bag, dumped it into a tall crystal vase, then did the second. It took several trips I managed to get most of the vases filled before James decided it was enough and helped me do the rest. Just when I dumped the last one into a heart shaped vase, a group of middle-aged women and their daughters made their way past. It was a very colorful view that the teens saw first, which sent them into giggling fits and they started taking pictures. James raised his eyebrows at me & I just shrugged. The women really didn’t seem that impressed. They were now talking in very loud voices about PETA. That attracted an employee, who actually fainted at the sight. James and I stifled laughs and set off again.
#3. Code Green in Shoe Department
“I’ll do this one.” James whispered.
I nodded. We were looking around the corner at a twenty-something employee who was gonna be the main part of the prank. He looked very new so he was very vulnerable. We were so mean.
James set off toward the poor guy. He muttered into the guy’s ear. His face drained of blood. “A hostage?! In the Shoe department?” He asked in a strangled voice. With a sad nod from James he set off running in the direction of the intercom.
“Attention Customers, would you please leave in an orderly manner to the nearest exit. We have a Code Green in the Shoe Department. I repeat, a Code Green in the Shoe Department. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.” Man that guy had a squeaky voice. We sneaked off to out hiding spot in a nearby broom closet. We stayed very quiet. When they had established there was actually no Code Green, they had called a quick employee meeting in some strange room that we knew no idea where it was. Oh well. We had better stuff to do.
#4. Make an Indoor Beach
Luck us, it was the start of summer and they had gotten in their shipment of sandbox sand. We set to work right away. Who knew how much time we had? We- well, James- pushed and pulled a few shelves, giving us a fairly large area to fill with sand. JAMES started hauling bags and bags of sand, while I got all the decorative items. It took a good 10 minutes before we had it done. Thanks to vampire speed. James was fast enough the cameras couldn’t catch him.
We were adjusting a few fine details, laughing about what a shock these people were going to get. Just about then the employees and remaining shoppers filed in. Several screams emitted from the employees and kids. The kids detached themselves from their parents and were running around in glee. We were caught red-handed. The employees obviously talked about the weird stuff going on and they quickly put 2 and 2 together. Or a few of them. They kinda surged forward, but me and James were off. And we still had one more.
#5. Put Random Stuff in People’s Carts
We had to go behind there line of grabby hands to actually get to people who had carts. Even for that we had to run, grab random stuff, and dump it in people’s carts. Lots of people were taking pictures and videos, so probably in a matter of minutes we would end up on Youtube. At the door, James turned around and stated in a loud shout, “Stay tuned for the next performance.” With that we bowed deeply, and then ran. Leaving the laughs, screams, shrieks, and cursing behind us.
