Feeling Froggy

Intercepted by #72 Liam Wilson at the 89 yard line. Twelve seconds on the clock, I’ve never seen him run so fast. The crowd is going crazy…

“Froggy, Froggy, Froggy!”

#47 going for the tackle and he slams to Li-AMAZING!!! HE’S STILL RUNNING. Jefferson and Williams going for the kill. WHAAA-DID YOU SEE THAT JUMP? I CAN SEE WHY THEY CALL HIM FROGGY!!!  He’s approaching the end zone… TOUCHDOWN!!! HE DID IT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! THE BULLDOGS WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP!!! What a great game this was. This is it for tonight ladies and gentlemen, remember to walk in groups. This is Jessie from BFHS, HAVE A GREAT NIGHT!

Meanwhile in the locker room.

“Wow, I can’t believe this! We are champions! Whoa!”

“Liam I can’t believe it!!! But… how do you jump so high.”

“I don’t know Carl, I just do.”

“We haven’t seen anyone jump so high since… Fred.”

The room fell silent.

“Why did you have to open your mouth Carl?” Miles objected.

“Who is Fred?” Asked Liam nervously.

“Fred was in the football team 4 years ago, he used to jump high like you… He helped score the winning touchdown  at the 2011 championship…” Carl stops abruptly.

“What?!?” Liam asked anxiously.

“He disappeared the night of the championship, right after the win and no one knows where he went.” Miles finished without hesitation.

Liam’s laughs, “that’s it, some ridiculous urban legend. I’m going to the party guys, I will see you there after I pick up Jenna. Later!”

“Miles, man, why didn’t you tell him about all of the other disappearances?”

“Because it’s just a stupid urban legend. We all know that the superstars got scouted to good colleges, that’s what they did!”

“Who the hell told you that bed time story, your mommy? ”

“No, your mommy!”

They square off..


“Coach! He-”

“I don’t want to hear it, go home! Don’t ruin a great night! Great job out there… where’s Liam?”

The silence said it all.



As Liam is walking to his car, he hear rustling near the trees. “Guys, you’re not funny!” But no one answers. Then coming out of the sees the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen.

“Hello handsome, where are you going?”

“Uh… To a party, we just won the state championships.”

“Ooooh… How fun! Wish I could go…”

“You can go with me.”

“What about your girlfriend?” She asks getting closer… “She loves you, you know.”

“She’ll get over me.” He looks down at his phone turns his ringer off.

“Mmmm, do you really want to break her heart over little ‘ol me?” Her lips are close to his.

Instead of answering her he kissed her, but as soon as he did, he started to choke.

“What happened? Frog in your throat?” She frowns at him…”why is it that you men think it’s okay to break a girls heart? I used to be ugly you know… Until I kissed a frog thinking he would turn into my prince, instead I ended up beautiful. The frog then asked me to make me a wish. So I wish to test men of their worthiness, if they are… Worthy that is, they get one wish, if not they end up like you, now what do you have to say for yourself?”

Liam’s throat finally is clearing up, he’s finally going to give this crazy witch a piece of his mind when “ribbit” is all that comes out of his mouth.

“I’m sorry, were you trying to say something?” And she walks into the night leaving the Liam croaking the night away.
