13. Chapter 13

First period seems to fly by because next I know, it's Maths. I purposely wait just outside the classroom for Jade so I don't have to walk in alone. She soon arrives and I smile, waving at her through the crowds. She waves back and we walk in together. We sit in our usual seats as Mr Cooper hands out everyone textbooks and paper. Everyone begins working, heads down and mouths shut tight, making the room ring with the silence.

I finish most of the work and glance over at Jade's paper. She's on the same question as me. I smile and pull out a notebook from my bag. I flick to the first clean page and scribble out a note.

Ready for break? -SS x

I slip the notebook across the desk, onto Jade's paper. She reads the note as I get back to my work, writing out some formula. I hear her pencil scribble before the notebook is back in front of me.

Yup. You? -JM x

To stop Mr Cooper getting any suspicions about a notebook moving back and forth on a desk, I nod my head to her. I then scribble out the word 'think'  to her. She nods and I tune into her thoughts.

We're meeting in the school gardens, right? To discuss the plan?

Come her thoughts. I nod and keep the notebook under my arm so I can write, making it safer that I don't accidentally send the message to the whole class.

I write out;

Yes, Have you have any ideas?

A few, thinks Jade. 

I wrote a couple out this morning, before you were up.

Jade nods and writes down some working out for a maths problem. I work out some more problems before I hear the bell ring, loud and clear. I slap the textbook shut, put my notebook and my pencil away in my bag before grabbing Jade's wrist and dragging her from the room.

"Slow down Sally. I'd like to keep my arm in its socket, if that's okay with you." Jade tells me as I whizz round a corner.

"Hurry up then." I tell her, glancing back at her. 

We make it out the door with Jade's arm still in its socket and we run into the gardens. I spot Lewis sitting on a stone bench and Taylor sitting on the grass nearby. We join then, Jade on the bench and me on the grass. I lie on my stomach, elbows keeping me upright and my head resting on my palms. 

Charlie soon joined us and sat with his back against a tree which was providing us with shade as we discussed plans. 

"Okay, this morning, I woke up early and began writing out some ideas."

"I can vouch," Jade added. "She gave me a headache." Jade placed her hand on her head as if she still had the headache. 

"I said sorry!" I told her, lifting my hands in surrender. "Anyway, I have one main idea. I've no idea if it'll work but it's worth a shot." 

"What is it?" Charlie asks, sitting up from the tree. 

"Well, you know how we sometimes get to go to the village that's about an hour away?" I ask, Charlie and Jade nod, Taylor hesitates before nodding where as Lewis shakes his head which is understandable. "Basically, every other weekend, we get to go to the village where we can socialise, shop, hang out etcetera. And I thought, if we could get everyone away from the village centre, we could perform 'magic tricks' and get money for it. Like busking but not musical." I explain. "I realise that it's not the best idea and that it won't make a lot of money but it's a start, right?" 

They nod their heads and agree that we could try it. I write down some other ideas and we expand on ideas we already have.  We also decide that if we're going to save the school, we're going to need more people helping, so we're each going to ask 3 other people if they're going to help to start with. Then we can begin our plans. 

"And we can't tell any teachers, right?" Lewis asks unsure. I nod.

"Yeah, no teachers. It'd be too risky, they'll think that we'll spend too much time on this and not enough time on our studies. Just keep it between us... for just now anyway." Just then the bell rings and we get up. "Okay, I'm off for two hours of Private Tutoring. See ya guys." I then run off, wanting to get to the classroom before Miss Kandy. 

I push the door open and see that I made my goal as Miss Kandy isn't here. I sit on the sofa and wait.

"Sorry, I'm late. Caught some students mucking about in the halls." Miss Kandy says as she enters, 5 minutes late. "I had to make sure they got to the Power Chamber." I nod.

"Who was it?" I ask, curiosity getting the better of me.

"I really shouldn't say, but it was Michael and Calum Finnergan."

"Oh, I hate them. They're so annoying." I immediately say without thinking. "They're always causing a nuisance and being idiots."

"So I'm guessing that the Power Chamber isn't an unusual place for them, then?" I shake my head.

"Nope, I think they go there every day." I tell her. "Their powers are just really annoying though, I mean really? Super farts and flexibility? Michael is okay, it's just Calum who's really annoying. His power is so immature. And absolutely disgusting." I pull a face at the thought. 

"So that's what that smell was." Miss Kandy says, looking slightly grossed out as she sits down at her desk. "Anyway, we've got two hours today so how about we start by discussing what we did yesterday?" I nod. Miss Kandy then begins to go over what we had done the day before.

~Author's Note~

Okay, so I can only have so many ideas and I'm also kinda interested in knowing what ideas you have.

So if you have an idea for how the gang can save the school, comment below and I might use it in the book (Most likely I will) I will also, if I use your idea, I will also add you in as a character in the book as one of the people who help out.

Hope you're enjoying the book so far.
