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"


5. The Importance of a Real Family

Braelyn clears her throat, and I look at her. "Kam, we are going to each share with you a memory that we have of our family, in the hopes that you will realize the importance of always having people who are there for you."

"I always have you guys, right? Why should I need anyone else?" I countered.

Braelyn opened her mouth, then closed it, and no one else seemed to have a response, until Judy opened her mouth and said: "Things always happen to spies that we don't want them to. That's why we carry the pills. My mom knows a person who used them. You may not always have us."

She's talking about the pills that we carry in the event that we are taken in to custody by an enemy country. The suicide pills are fast working and easy, painless.

Everyone automatically puts their head down, and closes their eyes, sending a silent prayer to those who used those pills, and never gave away their country's secrets.

Braelyn speaks up again. "She's right. You never know what's gonna happen. Which is why we're doing this."

"My memory is simple, but meaningful, so listen up, wacko." Braelyn's mention of my old nickname forces me to pay attention.

"When I was younger, I told my older brother, Eric, that he was an idiot. The next day, I woke up at sunrise, to find my body strapped to the treadmill, and Eric turning it up all the way. He made me apologize, and later, we had a big laugh about it. I wanted to let you know that having a family can be funny."
