This all started as a prank gone terribly wrong.
My brother always acts like a fool when we hang out with his friend Corey, especially when we’re at the cottage together. So I should have known something was weird when they told me to get out of the canoe to see if the tiny island we were passing had a blackberry bush. They said they’d wait for me. As soon as I reached land, I heard them laughing like hyenas, paddling away as fast as they could.
I’ve now been here for a whole hour, alone on this tiny island, which by the way, doesn’t have blackberries.
I’m sure my brother and Corey will come back for me soon. But I’m so mad that I’d rather not even get back in the canoe with them.
And then it came to me. I can get back to the cottage myself and get my revenge on my brother.
I smiled, got up, and started to put my plan into action…
