Male Bonding

By Fanboy26

Humor

Chapter 1

Ginny was sitting in the living room with Lily, both of them reading quietly. She knew Harry, James and Albus would be back soon from their father-sons, male-bonding camping weekend. Even as she heard the car pull up in the driveway, she wasn't prepared for what was coming when the guys came in.

“You've been a pain in my neck ever since the day you were born!”

“Stiff, uptight, repressed-”

“I should have smothered you with your baby blanket back when I had the chance!”

Ginny & Lily both looked at the boys who were fuming at each other, at Harry who just had a defeated look about him, and finally back at each other with bemused looks on their faces until Ginny finally spoke up.

“So, how'd the weekend go, boys?”

Albus just looked at her & laughed incredulously.

“She wants to know how the weekend went, I'll tell you how the weekend went, mum, it was an ungodly nightmare!”

James chose this moment to chime in.

“Well, it wouldn't have been half the nightmare if you hadn't forgotten to close the tent the first night & let that bear in who destroyed everything!”

“Oh, please, he didn't do that much damage and besides, you're the one who dropped all the fishing supplies in the river the next day, so we wound up having to fish with tree branches & our shoelaces!”

“Oh, yeah and who was it that got poison oak from those bushes even though I was yelling at him to run around them?”

“I was just really happy to see the campground again after someone got us lost for three hours after insisting he be in charge of the map & that he knew where we were going!”

“You're an arrogant little snot, you know that, Albus?”

“That's it!”

Albus snapped and tackled his brother to the ground both of them trying to get in a good punch on each other leading Harry to finally step in and break them up.

“All right, knock it off, both of you! This weekend has been very stressful for all involved, I won't deny that! But, I'm sick of you two snapping at each other! Now, go upstairs to your rooms and don't come down until you've both calmed down!”

James and Albus both reluctantly followed what he said and when Harry heard two doors slamming shut upstairs he threw himself down on the couch, trying to relax, both Lily & Ginny unsure of what to say, until Harry spoke up once more.

“Next summer...separate weekend bonding trips.”

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Dhira Vidhea, author of Boy Who Broke In My Window, an otherwise engaging tale of love and acceptance of the quirkiest of individuals, whose overall conception of the plot is spot-on and whose writing style is impeccable and as for her writing skills they are the best I've ever seen, tho...

macyjf4: This book is the best romance book I've ever read. To great characters to an amazing plot, I would highly recommend it. Although some words were spelled incorrectly, I'm sure they were typos. If I could give this book a thousand stars, I would.

Emily White: Love this book so much !!!!!!!!!!! This is my favorite book now I can't explain why I love it I've been reading it for the past week now I read it during my reading class in school if the teacher lets me

Regina Lum: While the plot so far is kind of linear and loosely follows Pride & Prejudice's plot, I find this version of Pride & Prejudice a very enjoyable read!! I read all 13 chapters in one sitting!! I can't stop myself from reading! I hope to read more and feel the love blossom between Elijah and William...

summerstone: Seriously this is one of the best books I've ever read. The plot is intriguing, I love the narrative style. Its very descriptive and unique, with minimal cliches. It makes for a great read and the sequels are amazing. Totally worth reading. ^^ That's me trying to be professional. But in all hones...

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...
