I woke up and headed over to the office. When I pulled in, I found Mr. Wellington waiting for me in the parking lot.

"Hello Mr. Gray, how are you doing this morning?"

"Good, how about you?"

"Oh, pretty well. Anyways, I wanted to give you something. You've been doing a great job so far, so I wanted to give you a little signing bonus."

At this he pulled a key out of his pocket and handed it to me.

"Um, Mr. Wellington, what is this for?"

"It's the key to your new car."

I pushed the alarm button and heard it farther down the lot. I hustled over there to find this:

"Mr. Wellington, you didn't have to..."

"Don't worry about it. It only cost me about $200,000. Nothing big."

"Th-th-th-thank you," I managed to stammer out.

After test driving it for about half an hour, I went into the office and found Jacob waiting for me.

"Sup man!" he said. "How you been?"

"Pretty good," I replied. "How was Paris?"

"It was amazing!" he answered. "I even got to go out with a couple of hot French chicks!"

"Good for you!" I replied, laughing. I sat down at my computer and found an email from Evan:

I drove in to the office (in my sweet new ride!!!) this morning to find Evan and Jacob waiting for me.

"What's up?" Evan said between bites of his Big Mac. "Did you rent that?"

"What, this old thing?" I replied. "Nah, the owner gave it to me while you guys were gone."

After I said that, Evan and Jacob's faces looked like this:

Evan even dropped his Big Mac.

"NO WAY!!!" they shouted.

They begged me to let them drive for the next hour, until they finally shut up for their 11 AM nap.

About noon, Mr. Wellington rolled up in his limo.

"Hey guys. I have some big news for you."

I shook Evan and Jacob awake, then asked Mr. Wellington to go on.

"Well," he said, "I'm taking you guys on a little trip to celebrate the signing of our full roster. I'm taking you on a skiing trip in Colorado!"

"Okay..." I replied. "I get to snowboard!"

"Me first!" Jacob yelled. "Snowboarding is my life!"

"Really? You've never been out of state!" Evan chimed.

"Anyways..." Mr. Wellington went on. "We'll be staying two weeks in Aspen, and then I'll give you guys a week-and-a-half off to be with your families during Christmas."

"Great," I replied. "When do we leave?"

"In a few hours."

"You REALLY need to give us some heads up on stuff."

"I know..."

7:18 PM, MST


I woke up shortly before our plane landed in Denver to a view like no other.

The Rocky Mountains.

I had never seen them in person. The sight of them was awe-inspiring. I looked over to see Evan and Jacob sleeping Mr. Wellington's shoulders. Creepy. I woke everyone up, including Mr. Wellington, as we landed at the airport. My thoughts drifted to the mountains, while Evan and Jacob clamored on about one thing: green chili. We decided to stop by a famous restaurant in Denver that served green chili cheeseburgers. The food was spicy but delicious.

After we finished eating, we rented a car and drove up to Aspen, home of the Winter X Games, where we would be staying. As soon as we got to the resort, we went straight to sleep.
