One Teenagers Internet Nightmare
Jake hears someone coming up the stairs. He thinks
it's probably his father. Thinking very quickly, as usual, he
types a quick couple letters in his Instant Messenger.
He types "brb" then minimizes IM and maximizes the Encyclopedia
Britannica page he had left open in the system tray. As Jake looks
like he is in deep concentration, his father says, "How's
the homework going son?"
"Great dad, this new computer you got me really
helps. We are studying the Presidents in history class and this
encyclopedia page tells everything I need to know about them.
You want to see?" Jake replies.
Jakes dad says, "No Jake, you just go ahead and get on with
your homework. You can tell me about what you are learning at
As his father is walking down the stairs, Jake has
one thought; "clueless" and opens his Instant Messenger
looking to chat with SexyChick09123 again. Jake thinks that if
his father only knew that he was chatting instead of doing homework
he would be very angry.
He'd probably take the computer right away if he
knew he was chatting with someone he had never met in person.
Jake is infatuated with her. She was not online anymore. She usually
signs off pretty quick when Jake tells her that his parents are
watching or that he will be right back. Oh well, he thinks, I'll
catch up with her later.
He was going to chat with a couple of his other buddies but he just
couldn't stop thinking about SexyChick09123. He opened up the last
picture she sent him. Wow was she hot. None of the girls at his
school even compared to SexyChick09123. They first met in a one
of the Yahoo teen chat rooms about 6 months ago. They have had some
very interesting chat conversations in those months. They chat about
things that he would never think about talking about to someone
in person. She has been hinting that she wants to meet him face
to face. Jake is very excited about the prospect of actually meeting
her in person but he is also cautious.
He hasn't told her exactly where he lives but he knows that if she
is smart enough she could figure it out by some of the chat conversations
they have had through the months. She made him tell her what state
he lived in before she would send Jake her picture. Jake gave in
and told her. SexyChick09123 said that she lives somewhere in New
York too but it's a pretty big state. How would they actually get
together without his parents knowing, how would she be able to do
the same? After all, she is only 2 years older than him so she can't
have a license yet. Jake's computer makes the noise it makes when
one of his buddy's sign on.

J8k-~726: I live in
Later in the evening as he was lying a wake in bed, Jake was thinking
about that last chat conversation with SexyChick09123. He knew he
wouldn't get much sleep on that night. I told her where I lived,
he thought. My father would kill me. If I didn't tell her then I
would never be able to see her. Then when she sent me that last
picture of her, he just had to meet her. There was no choice. She
will let him know tomorrow afternoon how they will meet. On that
thought, Jake fell into an uneasy sleep.
