The Golden Spear - a short story

The Golden Spear is a four part short story written by my eldest son when he was 13 1/2 years old. It is one of their projects in English 8. My son really has a creative and imaginative mind. I really enjoyed reading it. I'm so proud of him. Hope you like it too!

Chapter 1 Awakening

(Alarm clock rings) Kenny Iris Nitro, Kin for short, awoke to the sight of his room. He looked to the right to see the time, which would be 7:35 am. Kin spoke very panicking: “I got to get dressed or I’m going to be late again”. He quickly went to his dresser to get his clothes. Went to the dinning room and got a piece of bread. Then got his bag, stuffed his mouth with the bread and sped towards his school.

At school time, 7:59 am, Kin’s school life was like any typical person full of problems, which now brings us to his first problem, a beating from matt the school’s quarterback, followed by him taking his lunch money. Which now brings us to his second problem, his crazy friend Drake (nicknamed: Den). Drake spoke: “Hey Kin, when are you going to pay me my $50 or do an errand for my club?” Kin replied: “I’ll take the errand and what club you need. 4 people for a club and there’s, let me guess, you hacked my name in the club”. Which now brings us to the 3rd problem. Kin’s biggest, to be exact, his crush and best friend Jenny failed since his recent discovery of her boyfriend being Matt, the guy that takes his money and beats him up. Now we go to his 4th and final problem, school, Kin was never the smart one even if his IQ is 156. Now, Kin gave up and just sleeps in classes, which unfortunately gets him detention, Teacher said: “Mr. Nitro, detention.”

Time of day, 12:30 am (Free Period) Kin’s point of view.
I dashed towards the mythic clubroom, which lead me crashing towards Jenny while she was going towards her locker carrying her books. I said: “Sorry Jenny. Here let me help you pick that up.” Kin did just that, accidentally touching her hand. After that, he dashed towards the clubroom again. I said: “Hey Den where is the room again?” Den replied: “Under the boiler room. Here’s a map and wear the suit.” I said: ‘No, not now not tomorrow not ever again.” Den said: “Not that one that was a prototype. You’re not going to get electrified again now. I tested this on myself, it works.” Den said: “Do I look like I’m not a person with an IQ of 300?” I said: “Yes, you look like a nut case but what the heck I’ll do it.” I followed the map while wearing the tight suit. I found the door with an inscription stating
Only the one chosen by the spear may open the door that will unleash the power of the ancient ones I tried to open the door by pushing and sliding it then I gave up until I noticed it was a pull door. I saw the spear after opening the door. It flew into my hands and gave me this golden suit of armor. Then there I heard gunshots. I got back up to the hallways to see criminals with shotguns, assault rifles and a bazooka. One of them even saw me and said, “You freak!” (said while grabbing someone which was Jenny) “Get away or I kill her.” I growled and charged at him, knocked him and his buddies out and saved Jenny. Jenny said: “Thank you golden spearman!”, giving me a kiss on the cheek. Then goes away. I said to myself: “Den, you got some explaining to do.”
