Chapter One: The Worst Night Ever

"Calvin honey? Your dad and I are going to go golfing. I just called Rosalyn and she said she'll take you." Calvin's mother called. Calvin was too busy watching cartoons. Hobbes pulled his ear and said, "Didn't you hear? You're parents are going golfing!"

"They are?" Calvin jumped up to his parents. "Where, where, where? In golfing, I can use a real adult club, right?"

"Who said anything about you coming? You aren't. Rosalyn's going to baby sit you. Have a nice night!" Calvin's dad started to walk outside. Then he poked his head in. "Don't forget, no calling the police!" Then he pretended his finger was a knife and made the motion of slitting his own throat.

Calvin turned white. "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!"

Ding-dong! The doorbell rang.

"Rosalyn? You're here, that's good! We'll be back in three hours, okay?" Rosalyn nodded.

"We'll be all right. I brought one of Calvin's friends over. I have to watch them both at the same time, so is it okay?" Rosalyn asked.

"Fine, fine. Make sure they don't get into trouble!" And then Calvin's parents went out to the garage to go golfing.

Meanwhile, Calvin was packing to run away.

"Where are you going to go now? The Mars idea wasn't so good." Hobbes said.

"It's okay. I'm only going to take some important stuff, and then we're going to get out of this place for good!" Calvin shouted. "I put in my lunchbox with lots of sandwiches, lots of comic books, some money from Grandma, and I'll put you in too!"

"No! I'm not going in there. I won't be able to breathe!" Hobbes protested.

"It's okay. There's a hole at the bottom. Hurry! I hear Rosalyn coming." Calvin stuffed Hobbes into the suitcase and prepared his blankets to make a rope to climb out of the window.

"Oh, no you're not!" Rosalyn caught Calvin and the suitcase. "You're coming with me. Get in the car!" She dragged Calvin to the car.

"Meet Moe." Rosalyn ordered. Calvin tried to climb out the window, but Rosalyn fastened his seat belt on tightly. "Now be good! I'm taking you two to Susie's house, where I'll baby sit the three of you."

"Hi, I'm Moe, Twinky. As an introduction, I'll punch you."

By the end of the car ride, Calvin was black and blue with bruises from punches.
