22. Making The Most Of The Night


I spotted Conner lounging lazily against his locker.

The lunch bell had rang, but there he was, fiddling with his pencil. Immediately, Aqua's face popped into my mind.

Even though she hadn't told me, I knew for certain that Aqua liked -maybe even loved- Conner.

And I was pretty sure he liked her back.

I grinned and walked over to him.

Conner looked up, his eyes locking with mine.

"Uh, oh. I know that look." Conner gazed at me curiously. "What's up, Fire?"

I came out straight and dove headfirst into danger. "Do you like Aqua?"

Conner looked calmly over my shoulder. I turned around.

Aqua had her head poked in her locker, and was shifting around in it, giving no notice of hearing us.


I turned back.

"I know you have a crush on her, Con."

Conner stared at me.

"Does she like me?" His voice was quiet and soft.

"I can't tell you that," I murmured. "But, I know a way that you can show her you love her."

"How do you know I love her?!"

I glanced behind me quickly. Aqua was pulling out her books and stacking them beside her.

"Stupid binder!" She muttered. "You're supposed to help me!"

"Anyway," I turned my attention back to Conner. He was staring at Aqua, but I knew he was listening.

I whispered my plan in his ear. Conner's eyes widened and he nodded slowly.

"Yeah, that could work... But how are we going to get her to agree?"

"Not we. You. Persuading her is up to you."
