Before we can get to the story, I think you might need to know this:
If you didn't get the "Entrance to Hell is by the Hollywood sign' joke I shall explain. So, I recently read the book 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians'. And in the book, they have to go to the Underworld to talk to Hades. And of course, the entrance is next to the Hollywood sign.
I thought that was a little funny, so I included it in my story.
If you are not OK with the word 'hell', leave this story right now. Because I say it in here a bunch.
Just thought I'd get that out.
Now, to the story:
"SHUT UP! I'M TRYING TO READ!"
"SHUT UP! I'M TRYING TO TALK!"
"Why are there always fights at the beginning of our road trips?"
Yes, a lot of fights.
"Alright, I will turn this thing around!" Hoagie yelled.
"Uh, guys?" Kuki asked.
"What?" Kiki asked. Kuki, Wally, and Kacey were in the back row of the S.C.A.M.P.E.R. Hoagie was driving, and Abby, Kiki, and Megan took the middle.
"I think we have company." Kuki said. Following close behind the S.C.A.M.P.E.R, was a small, yellow scooter. And who was driving? one other than the Happy Man.
"C'mon! Do we HAVE to visit Hell?" Wally asked.
"Yup. And I think I'll talk to Hades." Kacey said. "I've always wanted to know if he had an accent or not."
"I wonder what Hell looks like." Kiki said.
"I bet it's 'firey'." Kuki said.
"Actually, I think it's bottomless." Megan added.
"I always imagined it as hot." Abby added.
"Well, we Arizonans are prepared for that!" Kacey said with a laugh. Kiki and Megan sighed. Kacey adjusted her "The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess" skater hat and put her skateboard on her lap. Wally was still scared.
"What's wrong, Bub?" Kacey asked.
"Remember the time we went to the carnival?" Wally asked. Kacey put on a straight face.
"Well, I'm a little freaked out. I mean, this is a REAL ghost who will actually kill me! He makes Richard look like a Rainbow Monkey!" Wally exclaimed. Kacey shot him a look.
"True, but he's more towards Kuki." Kacey said. Wally's eyes went as large as planets.
"NO!! THAT'LL RUIN EVERYTHING! I'LL DIE AS WELL! GOD, HELP US!" Wally yelled. Kacey put her hand over his mouth as he kept complaining.
"Don't worry, silly! I'll be fine!" Kuki said. Everyone got one of those "ARE YOU OK?" faces on.
"Um, Kuki, you're not worried? AT ALL?" Kiki asked. Kuki shook her head.
"That's.... wonderful." Megan said. Soon, they arrived at the entrance to California.
"OH CRAP!" Kacey yelled. "I FORGOT YOU HAD TO PAY TO GET INTO ANOTHER STATE!"
"So? You've got your wallet, don't you?" Wally asked.
"Yeah, but it needs to be paid by someone who can legally drive!" Kacey yelled. Kiki stood up.
"I'm 14, the oldest of all of us, and I look like I'm 17. I'll pay." Kiki said. Everyone gulped as the disguised S.C.A.M.P.E.R. drove up to the gate.
"Hello, ma-am. How may I help you?" the rather depressed man said.
"Hi, I'm Kiki Hatrick and I'm able to drive." Kiki said. The man looked at her weird.
"I'll need to see your license and I.D." The man said. Hoagie handed her two fake cards. One: a license, and Two: An I.D.
"Um, it says you're 17. You have to be 18 to pass with children in the car." Everyone panicked.
"Yes, but my parents approved of me taking these orphans to an orphanage in California." Kiki lied.
"Mm Hmm." The man said. "I'm gonna need to talk to your parents." Kiki smirked. She handed the man her cell phone, with David's number already dialed into the phone. Kacey quickly called David to let him know what to do, and he went along.
"Hello, Mr. Hatrick?" the man said. David almost giggled.
"WHY ARE YOU BOTHERING ME? I DON'T KNOW WHO THE HECK YOU ARE!" David yelled in a deep voice.
"Um, your daughter is traveling to California with five kids in the car, and she has to be 18 to legally pass through, and she told me that you gave her permission. Is that true?"
"OF COURSE IT IS! WHAT IDIOT LET'S THEIR 17-YEAR-OLD TAKE FIVE KIDS TO ANOTHER STATE WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION?" David yelled. The man jumped, and dropped the phone. Kiki snarled, and the man picked it up.
"Of course! I'll let her through! Just don't call the police!" the man yelled.
"Too late." David said.
The man shut off the phone, threw it to Kiki, and let her through. She didn't even have to pay.
"EPIC." Hoagie said.
"WOW! THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN!" Kuki yelled. She and the others had arrived there, moments ago. Kacey read the Greek written on the "H" aloud and the rubble and rock next to it collapsed, leaving an entrance.
"Wally, do you have the Chuck E. Cheese coins?" Kacey asked.
Wally pulled 15 coins out of his pockets.
"Now remember, the man who is gonna take us to Hell is dead, OK? So he won't notice that they're not what he's looking for." Kacey said. Everyone nodded and followed her into the cave. Then, a rather strange looking man stood at the desk.
"Hello, how did you become deceased?" The creepy man asked.
"Um... we.... drowned in the bathtub." Kacey said.
"All of you?"
"Big bathtub. But you're all gonna have to pay."
Wally handed him the coins. He looked at them carefully.
"OK! Hop aboard!"
The man steered the boat with all the kids in it down the river. Soon, it got dark. Kuki screamed, and the man looked at her. She shushed. When it got brighter, the kids realized that they weren't on water anymore. They were flowing in mid-air. Then, Kacey turned to talk to the man.
"If a clown with ripped up clothes comes along, tell him to hop in." She handed him 30 coins. The man was wide-eyed.
"Whatever you say." He said. He dropped them off at the end of Hades' temple and hurried back. Kacey gazed at the temple.
