Going Nowhere Faster - Sean Beaudoin

Stan works in a video store, and is really smart. He can do math in his head, and can tell people movies a celebrity has been in by ABC order or the year it was made. He is also seeing a shrink because he lit a bullys locker on fire. He also likes Ellen, who barely knows he's alive. Miles and Stan go to a party and Stan has a bit to much to drink. The next night Ellen comes into the video store and Stan asks her out, even though its just to come along with him and his sister to feed the ducks. They have a good time and then Stan's mom comes and picks them up. She basically embarrasses him in front of Ellen in the car. A few days later Miles calls and says there is a double date with Miles, Cari, Ellen and Stan. They go to dinner at a German restaurant and as they are leaving Stan sees Miles and Ellen kissing by the bathrooms. He gets angry and also feels betrayed by his best friend that he goes home and doesn't get out of bed for a few days. When he decides to get out of bed and go to work, he finds out that the video store has been broken into and everything trashed. Keith, the owner of the video store thinks that Stan has played some cruel joke on him and fires Stan. The police arrested someone for the breakin, but Stan knows it wasn't him. So who did break into the video store? Can Stan get Ellen back? Will Stan forgive Miles for kissing Ellen? I guess you'll have to read to find out.
