From The Crazy Chicken Escapade
The boys did not sleep for very long because Rockybado, the robot king of the island of Texamilio, had to return each boy to their houses. David Ingram needed to go back to Crown Point, Indiana. Andrew Grzedek had to return to St. John, Indiana. And Levi Cranston thought that it would be necessary to come home to Valparaiso, Indiana. And so did Rockybado. The crazy chicken escapade was over, and, even though they all wanted to spend more time on the three seemingly “fictitious” islands, the three boys had other obligations over the next few days.
David was sleeping on his side on the leather sofa in the common area. Andrew was sleeping on his stomach on the floor. And Levi was sprawled across a recliner. Rockybado thought that he shouldn’t have had to wake them up. However, he needed to send the boys home.
“Wake up, boys,” Rockybado announced all of a sudden.
“Wha….” Andrew answered in his sleep.
“I need to take you guys home.”
David and Levi slowly stirred. They didn’t really want to go home, but they had their own tennis practice tomorrow, so they had to come home.
“Come, come to my UFO,” Rockybado said.
“It was fun being here,” David remarked sleepily.
“What time is it?” Levi asked, just as sleepily as David.
He then realized that it was 12:30 in the morning. For some reason, the boys fell asleep early. Probably because they were very tired. David, Andrew, and Levi entered Rockybado’s UFO, and, before they knew it, they were all almost back home.
“What is the chicken community going to do now?” Levi asked Rockybado.
“Probably party like it’s 1991,” Rockybado remarked jokingly.
“Why 1991?” David asked.
“That was when Radcliffe and his friends established what is now the chicken community.”
“No kidding. All three of us were born that year,” Andrew replied.
“I was born on August 17th. David was born on October 30th, and Levi was born some time in September. Am I right?”
“No. You’re wrong. David was born on September 30th, and I was born on October 30th,” Levi replied.
All three boys were eventually home.
