TWO WEEKS LATER
Lana was constantly worrying about who to select to help John Jason and her but couldn't think of anyone. " are you even listening !" Tiffany sneered at her as they walked down the school hallway.
" sorry I was just distracted " Lana said glumly
Lana thought in her head they only had 5 months now to find the statue
" Lana! Pay attention! Are you mad at me or something because you never listen and whenever I make plans to hang you are ALWAYS busy! You NEVER use to be busy! "
Then it just clicked in Lana's mind.
" you want to hang out tonight ? I'm going to go out to dinner with John and Jason and I know how much you like Jason so want to come?"
" duh I'll be there"
Tonight they went to subway that was farther away from town. Lana sat next to John while Jason and Tiffany sat across from them.
" Tiffany I need to explain why I've been busy lately" Lana said
" OK explain" Tiffany sighed
" well The real reason why Jason and John are here in America is that their mom got arrested in Italy and when my parents found out they fought to try to get custody of them but their mom's boyfriend, Darren, wants them to come back to Italy to live with him, he's saying that my parents aren't financially secure and the Court be lives him. We have until June to show them that my family does have the money to take care of them. My parents won't be able to work more than they already are to raise the money. So we thought if we can recover the lost North statue there would a reward because we also found out the statue isn't made of metal but copper and copper's really valuable. And we aren't getting much done if it's just Jason' John and Me so want to help us?"
Lana expected for Tiffany to leave the booth screaming " FREAKS"
But she didn't she said instead said " I want to help"
Lana shocked said "really!"
"Duh, first, I'm bored of this town anyway and this sounds like an adventure and second , Lana, when Jason and John are around you become happier and as your best friend I only want you happiness and I kind of like those two myself" Tiffany giggled
" not to rain on your parade but that's only four people we still need more people" john said impatiently.
" got any suggestions Tiffany?" Jason said
" actually I do, I think we should let Miranda into our group" Tiffany said sternly
" Miranda the freshman? Well I don't know. We don't know her well enough and she may think were crazy and such and we want this to be exclusive" Lana said doubtfully.
" Miranda knows everyone, she's like 5 ft and the definition of innocent. She's a good spy and she won't freak, she'll do whatever I say. Also you guys make it look like finding the statute is dangerous but it really isn't if people find out so what, they won't think we'll actually find it"
" I think we should ask Miranda to help us she is sneaky and she can keep secretes " Lana implied
"Tiffany we want to start searching for more information in North high and I think your sister would know a lot. Lana and I don't really know them that well and you do so if you can do some digging, " Jason asked
" Britney I would have to spend time with but Courtney keeps a diary" Tiffany grinned.
Lana said louder then she meant to " we meet back in two weeks, hopefully by then we have Miranda on our side and more information."
