Revisit the Hill

 

By Shadowgate

 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

A/N:  A few nights ago I discovered a Benny Hill Skit titled “jack and Jill.”  That didn’t surprise me considering he’s the one who inspired me to write comedy.  After seeing that skit I decided to do this sequel to The Hill of Crown Waters CA.

 

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

September 22, 2034

 

Holland Grain and his wife Mary just got done eating dinner at Jack in the Box.  They were enjoying their vacation for sure as were their two daughters Kate 15 and Marcy 7.

 

 

But at 8PM when they pulled up by a special hill Holland had to stop.

 

Marcy asked “why are you stopping dad?”

 

Holland answered “because this is The Hill of Crown Waters California.”

 

Marcy asked “is it haunted?”

 

Holland answered “no.”

 

Marcy then asked “is it anything like that song Kate likes to sing?”

 

 

Kate asked “which song” and Marcy answered “House on the Hill by Mercyful Fate.”

 

Kate said “no” and that’s when Holland told the family to get out of the car.

 

 

Holland said “20 years ago a brother and sister both incidentally named Jack and Jill dumped a bucket of water on a woman’s head as she was passing by the hill.”

 

 

Kate and Marcy laughed.  Mary was not pleased.

 

 

Marcy asked “why did they dump a bucket of water on her head?”

Holland answered “because a few days earlier the woman 48 year old Vanessa Brooks yelled at Jill Summers for putting on makeup.  She was 12 and Vanessa thought she was too young for makeup so she went up to her drive way and told her so.  Jill was not happy and her 15 year old brother Jack was equally angry.  So they got even with her later.”

 

 

Kate said “good that nasty old woman should have minded her own business.”

 

 

Holland said “well the tale goes on and people all over town were flipping out.  They wanted the hill monitored by police 24/7.  They wanted to enact federal regulations on the hill.  People were screaming at kids just for riding their bikes on the hill.”

 

 

Kate said “wow the adults sure were stupid back then.  But the music from the time period was great.”

 

 

Holland said “well that concludes the tale of The Hill of Crown Waters California.”

 

 Mary said “well I’m glad you taught them a history lesson but I don’t want the kids to get ideas.”

 

 

Kate said “well if some stupid neighbor hassled my sister I’d be mad just like Jack was.”

 

Mary said “yes I’ll admit it was none of Vanessa Brooks’ business.”

 

Marcy asked “daddy can we play on the hill?”

 

Holland said “of course.”

 

Kate asked “can we dump a bucket of water on mom’s head to carry on the tradition?”

 

 

Mary asked “no you cannot and that’s the dumbest question you ever asked.”

 

 

After Marcy and her big sister had fun just being kids playing on a hill for 30 minutes they headed to a motel room.

 

 

On the way to the motel room Kate blasted “House on the Hill” by Mercyful Fate.
