They pushed on both sides of the wall. Several minutes later, Stanley hand went forward. The panel slid back and revealed a small open space, like a box. Stanley screamed like a little girl. Pickles threw her hand over his mouth and threatened to kill him if he didn’t shut up. Piper shined her headlamp inside. A tiny spiders eyes were looking back at her.
“NOOOO!!! GO BACK!!! GO BACK!!!” screamed Turd.
Stanley didn’t hesitate. He raced back down and collided into Stu.
“You yelled Turd.”
“Yeah, he’s with us. He went up to see his old room, but your Grandmother just threw him out.”
“Wait! That jerk is in the manor right now?”
“JERK?” yelled Turd. He yanked Stu’s pants down as he ran past with Elena hot on his tail.
Stu looked down at his pants, now lying at his ankles. “Yup! He’s here.”
Just as Stanley started to fall asleep, he jumped out of bed and raced over to Joe’s.
“No. I sense something – a presence I haven’t felt since…” Out of nowhere, a pillow hit Stanley so hard in the head that he hit the floor. “TURD!” he cried.
“That wasn’t me,” screamed Turd. “RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! THE MONSTER FROM THE BLACK LAGOON IS BACK!”
Suddenly, books, pillows, pens, paper, were flying everywhere. Joe and Stanley were ducking and trying desperately to get to the stairs and escape.
“Kicked out! Kicked out!” cried Piper who was as bad as Hermoine Granger when it came to missing school.
“It’s only for a week,” said Pickles feeling quite happy about not having to go.
“Look at the bright side,” chimed in Stanley. “We’ve got a whole week to find a solution to Turd.”
Piper stopped storming around her room. “What can we do? We’ve tried reasoning with him. That didn’t work. Uncle Joe tried talking to him. Mom has threatened to find a way to make him die a second time. What’s left?”
