FC: Rocket Boys !
1: Chapter Seven | Chapter Seven
2: we had just launched a rocket but failed and had hit the mine. Dad wasn't so happy about that. he did not care about the other boys involved because he knew I was the main influence.
3: (Date Here)
5: one hour after my father had told me to go to my room, I hear foot steps coming up the stairs, just then the door swung open and there was my mom. she wanted to know what happened.
7: The next day I went to go and talk to Mr. Bykovski. Once i found him he was working the teeth of a contraption that they use in the mines. When I came over to talk to him, I apologized about using him for my experiments and getting him moved to the mine. but just then he pulled out a box with brand new wooden coned rockets and gave them to me
9: As we headed down the street to attend church we were just expecting the usual sermon. As the reverend got farther into his message every one was starting to feel a little weirded out. he was preaching on how we should not crush other peoples dreams, he was specifically talking about us the Rocket Boys, he said that Sherman and O'Dell looked at each other with a grin. this whole time the adults in the back rows sat as cold as stones.
10: After that amazing sermon Dad took me to this peace of land between the hill a little ways from town. After dad had given me the privileges to launch here I asked him we, Rocket Boys, could have some lumber from the mine to build a Block House. Dad had said that we could not have any lumber, but then I exlaimed scrape wood would do! and my Father replied "if I get you this scrap- and even scrap is expensive, young man- if I do this thing, from here on I want the Rocket-Launching business out of sight and out of mind in Coalwood. Understood?" "Yessir" I replied.
