In Spontania Timmy is a journalist who leads the battle against the loopy liars in an interdimensional information war. If Timmy can not stop fake news from making it to the public in Spontania then it has an effect on the real world. Timmy has to stop the lies before they are used to create new laws that change the world or ban fun things like popcorn. Timmy wakes up each morning and goes to school desperate to tell his friends about his newest discoveries. But the teachers do not always agree with Timmy and he is sent out of class a lot. Is this part of a bigger plot to silence Timmy so he can not tell anybody the truth? Find out in The Adventures of Timmy Truthhhhh.
GROUNDED – Adventures Of Timmy Truth – Book 6
It is the last day at school and everyone is excited for the summer holidays. Weeks of watching cartoons and playing out, football, water guns, trips to the fair and holidays abroad. The class is having a party and mIss Moonglow is in a good mood with Timmy. This must be a first.
Suddenly, Timmy begins to feel poorly and tired. He gets up to tell the teacher but before he speaks, one of his classmates vomits on the floor. “Urgh” shouts the whole class as Miss Moonglow turns off the music they were listening to.
“Quiet everyone,” She says: “I, I, I need to sit down, I feel, I feel, I urgh”. Miss Moonglow was now sick too, more kids started to feel unwell as Timmy ran to the window for some air. He notices a strange boy standing outside.
It is an hour later, the sickness had spread throughout the school. Parents were arriving to pick up their children. News crews had gathered outside. Timmy’s mum carried him whilst his dad walked with Molly. They are asked what happened.
“Nobody knows,” said Timmy’s mum as she hurried past the reporters and their cameramen. Timmy looked back at them as if he was eyeing up his competition, before climbing into the car and making their way home.
They arrive at home, mum begins to look after the poorly kids and dad puts the news on. They watch footage from outside the school as reporters questioned parents and the headmaster who denied it was the mix for the fairy-cakes that were in each class.
The strange boy spoke next. He was called Billy. He said he was a pupil at the school but Timmy did not recognise him. Billy looked shifty. As he speaks, Molly says she feels sick again, then mum and dad began to feel ill.
It wasn’t just Timmy’s family that felt bad, the reporter talking to Billy started to feel faint and her cameraman cut the footage. This was shown on TV to millions. Timmy’s mum’s phone rang, it was Timmy’s nan, she said she felt unwell. The first night of Timmy’s summer holidays was ruined.
Timmy goes to bed early and falls asleep. He was soon in Spontania where he felt much better. Timmy is in the park. He sits down on the bench and pulls out his tablet.
He watches the video of Billy on the news and thinks out loud, “Billy Bugs me”. He remembers the Numbers Monster and thinks BB, it’s 22. He checks the date, it is July 19.
Timmy researches the date on his tablet and it brings up an interesting find. It is the Day of Bad Omens. Timmy is intrigued, he looks into it and finds it is linked to people called Pagans who like to do spells, wear symbols, and use hidden meanings to trick us.
Timmy learns how strange things happen on important dates, just like the illness at the school. He then finds a picture of a boy ‘Billy The Pagan’. He popped up in stories about school sickness in the past. This has happened before.
He watches the footage from outside the school again and notices Billy manages to make people sick through watching TV but wonders how he did it from outside the classroom?
He zooms in on Billy’s badge that he is wearing on his coat. It has a light flickering on it. Timmy uses his video editor to enhance the sound and he hears nothing. He then uses a frequency finder app and bingo, something is there.
Billy is sending signals through the TV to people using his badge. That’s what is making them sick. He did the same outside the classroom too. Timmy has worked it out. He needs to leave Spontania fast and get back to tell his parents. Timmy publishes an article out of all the information before he leaves.
Timmy wakes up in the morning. His mum has the news on tv. The whole country has fallen ill. The government has told parents to ground all kids for the whole summer holidays. Sweetshops have been ordered to close along with funfairs, beaches, and parks. Nobody is allowed to play out or see their friends.
Timmy tells his mum why people got sick but she says he has a wild imagination and calls him funny. Timmy says: “this is not funny mum, first they ban ice cream, and popcorn, now this? What’s next?”
Every kid in the country is bored. Timmy shares his article online to tell more people what is happening. The internet keeps deleting his posts, nobody is getting the truth. People are sad, and not for the first time this year.
Timmy needs to track Billy down and get his badge. This will make sure he can’t use it to harm people.
Although Timmy tells everyone what caused the sickness, the government won’t let anyone play out or have any fun. They keep making new rules every hour. Kids can’t touch their toys. Cartoon channels on TV have been scrambled. “This is the worst summer ever”, he mutters.
Timmy asks for a hot chocolate. It makes him fall asleep on the couch and he is teleporting back to Spontania in no time. “Ahhhh, freedom,” he says as he takes in the fresh air and stretches his legs.
He goes to the museum to see Oroitz who greets him as usual. Timmy explains what happened back home and how it has got out of control because of what Billy The Pagan did.
Oroitz thinks for a moment before telling Timmy: “you do remember the emotion weapon they used on the football crowd?
“It is very similar. I suspect Billy works for Sly Sis and he was sent to disrupt you and your progression as you will have more time to research during the summer holidays.
“You will have also had lots of time to tell your friends the truth every day without being sent out of class by Miss Moonglow as soon as you talk.
“Timmy, I think you have a lot of people who are aware of what you can do and they are having to act on it because you are making your gifts known.
“They are manifesting into your life back home now.
“This year is the first time it has happened but you have been coming to Spontania since you were born. Now that you are on your right path, gaining knowledge that nobody else will, and passing it on, people will try to stop you”.
Timmy understands what Oroitz is saying and he decides to get back home and get on his PS4 to tell everyone in his group. it is the best way for everyone to talk to each other right now.
Can Timmy prove Billy The Pagan is working for Sly Sis who has connections to the Government? And the Shiney Shoe Men who have been attacking Joy all year? Will the news report the truth or will they carry on telling lies that keep everyone grounded and miserable?
It looks like it is going to be a long summer unless Timmy can do something about it.
