â€œDie, you dumb chair!â€ Jeffery shouted. â€œYeah! Take this!â€ Chester shouted. â€œEat a laser beam!â€ BOOM! The chair exploded, and a mechanical beep sounded. Level 49 complete! It was the year 2028, and â€œreal-life video gamesâ€ had been invented. This meant that if you put on a special set of goggles, you could run around your house shooting down things like exploding TNT, zombies, and magic household items that wanted to eat you. Of, course, you didnâ€™t ACTUALLY destroy them, you just destroyed them in the video game. Jeffery and Chester had been playing: â€œThe Magicianâ€™s Secretâ€ for about 5 hours this morning, and they were on Level 50, the last level, when suddenly, their mom shouted:
â€œTime for dinner kids!â€ â€But mom,â€ they complained. â€œNo exceptions, besides Rebecca whoâ€™s upstairs doing her homework!â€ Jeffery and Chester rolled their eyes. They knew Rebecca was upstairs playing â€œSneak Snake, but they didnâ€™t tell their mom. Rebecca had made them promise that they wouldnâ€™t tell her. After Lunch, the boys had to go to debate, painting, French, and programming classes at their weekend school. They complained to their moms that they should be able to play more video games, but she told them to go to bed. After all, it was 9:30 pm. â€œGood night!â€ they said to their mother. â€œMan, I wish we couldâ€™ve played The Magicianâ€™s Secret longer,â€ Jeffery said. â€œI do too, I mean, we were on the last level! I guess weâ€™ll beat it tomorrow. Chester said with a sigh. Then they fell asleep.
â€œPsst, Chester, wake up!â€ Jeffery said. â€œI couldnâ€™t sleep. Somethingâ€™s inside the house making noises. Probably a rat.â€ Chester woke up, and they were on a hunt for the rat. As they walked into the living room, they saw something horrid. Just like in The Magicianâ€™s Secret, there were magic human eating household items EVERYWHERE. Except this wasnâ€™t a dream, or their video games. This was real life. â€œI think we should tell Mom!â€ Chester hissed to Jeffery. However, Chester had forgotten that when furniture comes alive, they have very good hearing (he had read about it in The Magicianâ€™s Secret Wiki). â€œI have a good plan,â€ Jeffery said nervously. â€œWhat?!â€ Chester stammered. â€œRUN!!!!!!â€ Jeffery shouted. They ran around and around the house. Unfortunately, they were tiring. The furniture were not. Jeffery tried to throw a bucket at the chairs to buy time, but unfortunately, it simplify bounced off the chair. â€œDie pesky humans!â€ the chair shouted. Quick! â€œBack into our room!â€ Chester panted. â€œWhy?â€ Jeffery huffed â€œBecause I have an idea!â€ Chester said, gasping. They sprinted into to the room and quick as a cheetah, he had locked the door. â€œHey Jeffery, havenâ€™t you realized that this is like The Magicianâ€™s Secret level 25?â€ Chester asked. â€œOf course!â€ Jeffery said. Well get the goggles that allow us to play The Magicianâ€™s Secret!â€ Chester exclaimed. â€œWhat are you- ohhhh!â€ Jeffery said. Jeffery found the goggles, and they both put them on. They turned on The Magicians Secret and clicked: â€œFun Modeâ€. This was a mode that they could just shoot randomly around the house with their virtual weapons. However, this time they were going to actually be shooting something. â€œAre you sure that this is going to work?â€ Jeffery asked. â€œNo, but get ready to fire in 3, 2, 1, 0!â€ Chester shouted as he opened the door. They both started blasting their furniture. â€œWow! This actually works! Chester said. â€œI know!â€ Jeffery said as he made a sofa disintegrate. â€œPhew! We destroyed all the minions! But you know whatâ€™s next donâ€™t you Jeffery?â€ â€œJeffery nodded and said: â€œThe boss. The Magician. Except this time, if we lose, I think we die.â€
â€œWhy hello there little children!â€ A voice suddenly said. Jeffery and Chester whirled around and saw The Magician. Luckily for them, this was only level 25 and not level 50, so the magician wasnâ€™t going full power. â€œI suppose your ready to be destroyed!â€ The Magician shouted as he charged. He charged at Jeffery first. Jeffery knew what tricks The Magician was going to use, since he and Chester had already beat this level before, so he pretended to attempt to shoot The Magician with his laser, but at the last moment, whirled around and blasted the magician, who had teleported behind him and tried to trick him. Enough games! The Magician shouted (Who only had half his health left since Jeffery had upgraded his gun to be very strong.) die! He shot a bolt of lighting at Chester, who easily dodged it and shot The Magician with his rail gun. The Magician had 1 HP left. Unfortunately, Jeffery and Chesterâ€™s weapons both took a while to reload, so they had to avoid fire, lightning, and rocks at them. Finally, Jefferyâ€™s laser reloaded, and with a carefully aimed shot, destroyed the magician. â€œWait. What just happened wasnâ€™t real,â€ Chester said. â€œ Canâ€™t be. No way.â€ Jeffery firmly. â€œButâ€¦ it just happened!â€ Chester exclaimed. â€œAnyways, what time is it?â€ BEEP BEEP BEEP went their alarm clock. â€œI guess itâ€™s 7:00 am!â€ said Jeffery.
Suddenly, their mom walked in. â€œI woke up to hear a cracking noise,â€ their Mom said. â€œAnd- WHY DID YOU DESTROY ALL THE FURNITURE? HAVE YOU BEEN PLAYING VIDEO GAMES ALL NIGHT???????â€ â€œErr, you see mom we were being-â€œ Chester tried to say, but he was cut off by his mom screaming: â€œOH MY GOSH Iâ€™M GOING TO KILL YOU BOS DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH THIS IS GOING TO COST TO FIX?â€ â€œErr, 5,000 dollars?â€ Jeffery asked. â€œYOUâ€RE WAY OFF ITâ€™S 5,000 DOLLARS AND 1 CENT AND Iâ€™m GOING TO- sorry, I lost my temper. Letâ€™s eat breakfast. Luckily, their mom was very lenient and didnâ€™t kill the boys. After school (it was a Monday) Chester told Jeffery: â€œMan, that was scary and cool at the same time!â€ â€œI know!â€ Jeffery exclaimed. â€œI wonder, how did that happen?â€ Chester grinned and said: â€œWeâ€™ll find out eventually. Oh, weâ€™ll find out eventuallyâ€¦.â€
