Summary

Tim was was really excited to go to Camp Wickasaukee since it was an overall basketball camp. He had just figured out his friend Billy was also going (Billy was not very athletic). It was a long car ride there with Billy. When they were getting out to go, Billy was grabbing his gaming device when a camp director told him they weren't aloud. Billy was furious. He had already had a bad start to the camp. When the boys walked in Tim was looking around at the fellow campers. He noticed that one of the camp directors was a player at the University of North Carolina! He was hoping he would give him some pointers on basketball. The camp started off well for Tim but continued bad for Billy. Tim was not doing his best at the scrimmages though. The camp games started off well with a win while Billy did well in the swimming competitions. The next game was against a camp rival. The competition was close betwwen the two camps and ended up all coming to the basketball game. The game was close all the way down to the end where Tim was at the line shooting free throws. He barely made the first one then he missed the second one. After the game the camp was dead quiet. Tim had some ups and downs on the way to the next camp competion. It worked out okay for Tim. For the rest of the camp games, Wickasaukee won. The last one ended up with all the pressure on Tim. He had to play the role of the best basketball player at the camp since he was hurt. It was Tim's chance to shine. He ended up having one of the best camp peformances ever helping Wickasaukee get a win. The camp was overall a blast for Tim and okay for Billy. It ended off with a good note when Tim's crush gave him her number. Tim was ready for next year!

Tim

Tim was at the camp to get better at basketball than he already was, he thought that if he put his mind to it, he could be the best. He noticed that some of the other campers were pretty athletic looking. Tim started off trying to prove himself very slowly, he was not peforming as well as he could and had already lost a camp game for the team. It was his turn to shine when the starting point guard (probally the best player) got hurt (which Tim was involved in) and he had to start in his position for the team. Tim had done some drills with one of the camp directors before the game which helped him. Tim ended up having a lot of points by halftime by sinking jumpers. The next half Tim would pumpfake and dish out to another player for an assist. The last play of the game, Tim had to make a quick decision on what to do with the clock ticking with less than 10 seconds left. Did he force up a shot or give the ball to Billy right under the goal. Tim did what he'd planned on, he passed it to Billy. Everyone yelled "shoot!!!" Billy put it up and made the shot! Everyone went crazy. Tim had just played the best game of his life.

The Second Dance

At the second dance of the camp, Tim didn't know what to do. He decided just to sneak out to the back and sit on the bench. He hoped no one would come bother him. Next thing you know, Stephanie (his crush) was sitting beside him. He was pretty much speechless. Tim just sat their and listened while she talked. She explained how she liked him. Tim asked her why she was talking about him with Mike Gruber at the other dance. She seemed shocked, she told Tim that she wasn't talking about him and wanted to know why he thought that. Tim just went along with her and acted like he understood. They started talking softly again and then Stephanie asked Tim if he had ever kissed a girl before. Tim hesitated and lied saying he had once or twice. He then thought he had ruined his chance so he backed it up and said it wasn't really kising though. Stephanie then asked Tim if he wanted to kiss, Tim said "sure" hesitantly. When Tim leaned in to kiss her he felt rubbery stuff and quickly backed off. He opened his eyes to see that he had kissed a whoopee cushion and that their was a whole crowd watching and laughing. Tim was never more embarrased.
