Here is a short sample from the book:
By Vince Barnett
Chapter 1- College
At Los Angeles Creek College, Los Angeles, CA, 5 students (Peter: the outcast stoner, Brandon: An optimistic nerd that is dating one of the most beautiful girls on campus, Elizabeth (Lizzy): a careless girl with not much of brains, Ashley: a natural born leader that sets her goals first, John: the jock, hard headed and always wants his way.) take on an assignment that they will never forget.
“Many heard stories of ghosts and demons but what about anyone seeing the Reaper?” says Peter. “That won’t ever work with this project, I have a lot going on for this credit.” Ashley says with a tone. “He does have a point, we are all stuck in this together. I remember seeing an article online that said something about a mysterious house in Texas, were some kids went there and just disappeared along with the house and numerous reports of something they’ve never seen before.” John interrupts.
Ashley argues with John, “So you’re telling me that the supposed Reaper was there?” Lizzy walks into the house and heard a little of it and starts laughing hysterically at what she just heard. “You know that’s just a bunch of bullshit, why don’t we choose something more realistic that we can all use?”
Everyone agreed but Peter and John.
“I say the vote is 2 on 2, why don’t we see Brandon and see what he thinks.” Says John.
Now Brandon doesn’t care about the project, his family is rich, he can live off computers but was forced to go to college by his parents. A ring goes off at Brandon’s doorbell. John and Peter are there along with Lizzy and Ashley. “Hey Bro, answer your door!” Peter yells, Brandon’s father answered the door. “What do you want?!?” he says rudely. “Umm we came to see Brandon, is he home?” “Let me go check…”
“Brandon! Your friends are here.” Says the father
“I’m coming dad!” Brandon yelling from the basement. He rushes upstairs and goes to the door.
“What’s up you guys?”
Peter answers, “We got a question for you, may we come in man?”
“Sure but that doesn’t explain why you guys are here.”
John replies, “We have a project due by the end of the summer, we need your opinion on where we should go and do our report on. Peter came up with this idea of doing something on the reaper, what do you think of that? All the girls are out cause they think it’s a dumb idea but this could give us the A we need.”
“I don’t even know where to begin the research though, how about we gather our facts from online, if it seems legit, we should really do it.” Brandon replies.
“ Then that’s settled. Lizzy, Ashley? How about we do some research on this and change our thoughts about this report?”
“Okay…” Lizzy grunts. “ Why do men always make the choices?”
Ashley replied, “ Cause men don’t have brains…”
