Hi. My name is Joe Bennett and all of this is weird. It's so weird that I still don't believe it myself. It started about a week ago and Mr Foster is gone now. Some long, long days of non-stop weird stuff and nobody believes me, except one guy. Raymond. And he's not talking.

It all started because of Raymond.

About a week ago, everything was normal. Including Raymond, who was as mean and gross as usual. He is big and ugly and he's the school heavy. He borrows from the other kids and never pays them back. If anyone asks him to, he flies into an awesome temper. He's always getting into fights.
