The next day at work, I went to the head director, Layla, and showed her the Space Calf. I told her everything about Forte. His name, how he got here, why he left his planet… I definitely included his magic sneezes. Layla made a plan. She called an assembly right away. We both introduced Forte.
“Welcome, Sci-Fi Aqueduct Center crew! Under my permission, I am allowing a new member into our society! Please welcome the one and only… Forte!!”
Forte turned pink. Wow! One tiny figure standing in front of a whole society of- Layla knocked me out of my dreams saying, “Okay? Pickle! Pickle!!” “Huh? What? Yikes!” I said, jumping. “Umm, sorry, could you repeat that?” “I said, Forte is going to be your partner until he has to leave. Is that alright?” “Oh, y-yeah! Uhh- I mean, of course!” Everybody stood up from their seats clapping and cheering. Everybody except for the most mischievous agent, Robert McNelson. Robert just sat there, a smile creeping up onto his face. Then, noticing me watching him, he smiled and stood up, starting to cheer. I wondered what was going on…
That night, Forte and I were walking toward the door tandem when I heard a CLANG. I jumped 6 feet high up into the air. Moonlight streamed in from the window. There, in the corner, a huge shadowy figure appeared. I couldn’t really tell who it was, but I noticed that there was another figure in it’s hand. The figure in the hand was Forte! Also, a golden shiny thing dangled off the guy’s wrist. I knew only one person in the whole society wore that bracelet. Robert McNelson.
