The Academy

Kamber Marie Evans, Kam to her friends, is a student at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, a school for aspiring spies, even though the staff claim it is a school for geniuses, everyone knows the truth. If you have the security clearance that is. Kam speaks fourteen languages, not including dialects, she she is a black belt in 5 different kinds of karate and tae kwon do, and she's a first rate gymnast. She can run a marathon in less than 2 hours, and she is an expert at covert operations, a class at the Academy that teaches students how to sneak around like spies without being noticed. Kamber's life is almost perfect. Kam has always known she was adopted when she was younger, and she knows that her parents were still alive, and had OTHER kids. Other girls, and an older brother. All she knows is that they live in Britain, henceforth her British accent. She has toyed with ideas as to why her parents gave her up, but when her adoptive parents, the Evans, are killed in a car crash, her biological family appears out of nowhere, with promises to make her life better. But she doesn't realize that he Tomlinsons can help her. Kam is angry that her family would stay away from her life for 18 years, so she tries to run away all the time, she does drugs, drinks, anything she can to get her mind off of her impossible life. When "Mummy Tomlinson", as Kam refers to her, decides to send her away with her older brother Louis on tour with his world famous band, Kam uses her spy skills to prank the boys, thwart them in any way she can. At least, until they give her up to an orphanage again, or best yet, send her back to the Academy, to her friends: Samantha, Caroline, and Riley. On the other hand, Louis Tomlinson had never known he had another sister. When he finally discovers her drug use, he is determined to help her in any way he can, except set her up with one of the other boys. But Kam doesn't want Louis' help, she doesn't want anyone's help, unless she knows them from the "Academy". Louis has no idea what the Academy is, other than that it is the rich boarding school Kam attended during years 7-12, but he is determined to find out, plus why does Kam appear to hate him? Can years worth of lack of trust and knowing someone be made up for in just one world tour? Find out in: "The Academy"

2. Finding My Real Family

"Kamber Marie Evans to headmistress's office."

I'm sitting in my room, studying how to conjugate verbs in Hindi when my name is called over the intercom system of our school. Apparently, Headmistress Breber wants to see me. Samantha looks at me and says: "Would you like me to come along?"

I nod at her, yes. Sam stands up, putting aside her laptop, and her latest paper for chemistry class, where all you do is learn about chemical warfare.

Riley and Caroline wish us luck as we walk out if the room, and in to the hallway. I frown at their choice of words, and Sam's odd behavior of actually coming with me to see her own mother. Samantha Breber hates her mother, even though she tries not to act like it.

As a natural instinct of my education, I run through every worst case scenario in my head, not bothering to think of good possibilities. Everyone has been acting so weird since the funeral a month ago. It isn't entirely sympathy anymore, but something that I couldn't put a finger on.

Girls whispered when I walked past them in the hallway, maybe it's jealousy? No, I have nothing they want.

"Or do you?" Samantha grins at me and waggles her eyebrows, pushing open the heavy wooden door to the main hall.

I stare at her before walking through the threshold. "What?"

She giggles at me. "You were talking out loud, silly!"

"Oh, right." She still hadn't answered my question. What had she meant? I shake my head to clear my thoughts as we walk through the door to Headmistress Breber's office.

I greet the headmistress with the formally standard, "How are you?", while Sam opts for the informal: "Hey, mom! What's up?"
