It was a day as hot as a red pepper. People were
buying their tickets for the museum. Then people are starting to come
into the museum. One of them was a boy named Andy Biersack. He wore a
lot of black things, and he had teased long hair. He walked past a
painting, but he stopped, and was looking at it for a while. Then more
people came into the museum, including a class on a field trip.
Andy and the painting were staring at each other. Andy’s mind kept
rambling like a teacher teaching a lesson with a monotone. Other people
were looking at other things in the museum. The painting was called “The
Enchanted,” who knows why. People were asking, “Why do they call it ‘The
“Because a famous painter painted it. He passed away a few years back.
So, that’s what they called it,” a man said. Andy was listening to what
they said because he didn’t know that at all.
“Oh, that is so amazing! Who painted that? It is an amazing piece of
art!!!!” a person yelled loudly.
The artist’s name is Roy Lichtenstein. He was an amazing artist, and his
painting is colorful like a rainbow in the sky, I said in my mind. It is
so beautiful. The painting is called
“It is time to leave, Andy,” Andy’s mom said.
“NO, I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE.”
“Andy, DON’T YELL AT ME”
“I don’t care, Mom. This painting is pretty.”
“I’m your mom so come now. Don’t make me count to three. 1, 2, 2
½,…Please don’t do this, Andy,” Andy’s mom said.
People were staring at them because they were the loudest people in the
museum. While everybody was staring, they were talking about leaving to
go home, but Andy didn’t want to go home because he loved the paintings
of Roy Lichtenstein. So, that’s why Andy didn’t want to go home. In his
head was that painting.
Andy had a plan. The plan was that he would say he left something behind
to go back to the museum. He told his mom that he lost something in the
museum, so they had to go back. They arrived at the museum, and Andy
walked in and started to look for the thing he lost and his mom was in
the car when he was looking. When he got back inside, the picture was
talking to him, and she said, “Hey, Andy, why are you back in the
museum? Didn’t you go back home?”
“I told my mom about that I lost something because I want to see you,”
“Why did you lie to your mom about losing something because of me?” said
the hopeless girl.
Andy was surprised because the painting was talking to him. At first he
didn’t believe it. He pinched himself because he thought he was dreaming
that the painting was talking to him.
“You have to go home to your mom, and don’t stay because of me. I’m just
a painting on the wall. You have to make a choice,” the painting said.
Andy had two choices: to stay in the museum with the painting or go back
to the car and lie that he found the thing. His choice was to stay in
the museum with the painting.
“WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE? I TOLD YOU TO LEAVE WITH YOUR MOM BECAUSE YOU
NEED TO GO HOME ONCE AND FOR ALL!!” the hopeless girl yelled.
Andy was sad because she was right about going home to his mom and
family. Then he thought about what the hopeless girl said. Andy wanted
to go home, but he couldn’t because the doors were locked. The janitor
had locked the door. Andy was worried. He was looking for a way out of
the museum. He was looking and looking, but he didn’t find the way out.
So, he went to the hopeless girl to ask for the way out. Andy walked
back to the girl and he stopped. The janitor was coming his way. Andy
went to hide in order to not get caught. Then the janitor left without
noticing him. Andy went to the girl to ask the way out.
“Where is the way out? I got locked in here and I want to go home”
“So you are going to take my advice?”
“OK, the way out is the back door because it always unlocks.”
Andy and hopeless girl were talking. Andy took the hopeless girl’s
advice about going home with his family. The hopeless girl helped Andy
to go home. Andy went to the back door and went back home to his family.
The hopeless girl was in the museum and Andy was at home. He was
thinking about the hopeless girl that helped him get out of the museum.
After that day they never saw each other again.
