Call 911 - A Twist on the Stolen Kidney Story
Tanya, NH, USA
I’ve heard this story a few times, as I’m sure lots of people have. I’m going to add my own personal twist to it, and change the characters. Here goes nothing!
Jennifer and Amanda were very good friends. Now in college, they had been friends since grade school. Jennifer was the smart, intelligent one. Amanda was the fun-loving, kind of slutty one.
One night, Amanda was chatting on the Internet while Jennifer did her calculus homework. Amanda was singing along with her head phones, and annoying Jen quite a bit.
"Shut up, Amanda. You’re being annoying," Jen snapped.
"What’s your problem?" Amanda asked, defensively.
"Nothing. Just... keep it down. Okay?"
"Ok, no prob," Amanda replied.
Jennifer went on doing her homework, as Amanda chatted. Suddenly, Amanda squealed with delight.
"Guess what, Jen!"
Jennifer sighed. "What?"
"David wants to meet me tomorrow night!"
"You know. My internet boyfriend?" Amanda said impatiently.
"Um. Great," replied Jennifer. Amanda, a little put out by her friend’s lack of enthusiasm, signed off the Internet and decided to go to bed.
"Mmm," replied Jennifer.
The next night, as planned, Amanda went out to meet David at a local bar called "McGrundy’s." They had an excellent night together, and it was getting pretty late.
"One more drink?" David asked.
"Sure. Why not?" Amanda replied, even though she was getting a little tipsy. David ordered Amanda another screwdriver, and handed it to her. She drank it down, and David paid. They left.
The next morning, Jennifer woke to hear whimpering in the bathroom. She really wasn’t ready to wake up, as Amanda and her new boyfriend had come in late and woken her up. They’d been making a lot of noise in the bathroom, too. Jennifer moaned, got up, and walked into the bathroom.
"Amanda? What the hell?" Amanda was asleep in a bathtub full of ice cubes. Jennifer was extremely confused. She looked around the bathroom and saw a note on the counter top. It read: Call 911 if you want to live.
Jen, thinking it a joke, shook Amanda to try and wake her. She wouldn’t wake up. Jennifer called 911.
Paramedics arrived at their apartment and took Amanda out of the tub, naked. They rolled her over and, as they suspected -- Amanda’s kidneys had been stolen.
