After her shift was finished, Sophia arrived back home late, just as the sun was beginning to set. She checked her Baku-pod as she unlocked the door. eight-eighteen. Okay, maybe not that late.
"I'm home!" She called out as she closed the door behind her, taking out her earbuds. She turned off her MP3 player and stuffed it in her bag.
"You'll wreck it doing that." Fenix noted.
"Meh." Sophia shrugged and wandered into the lounge room. Luna was sitting on the couch writing in one of her countless exercise books and Drago was sitting on her shoulder, watching.
Luna looked up and adjusted her glasses. "Hey, Sophie!"
"Hey yourself." Sophia nodded and proceeded to her room, where she dumped her bag and got changed into more comfortable clothes. Then she went back into the kitchen and grabbed an apple. "Homework?" She asked Luna.
Luna nodded. "They're being merciless these days." But she put her book down and stretched. "But it's time for a break anyway."
That's when Drago sopke up. "Listen, I have to ask you a favour." He started. Sophia, Luna and Fenix all gave him their undivided attention. "I'd like your help finding Dan." He asked.
Fenix 'nodded' at once. "Of course." She said. "Anything to help a fellow Bakugan."
"Careful who you say that to." Sophia murmured to her. "Sure, no problem at all." She said to Drago, before taking another bite out of her apple.
Luna smiled. "We'll do everything we can." She promised. "There's a website that a lot of brawlers use, we can start there?" She suggested.
Sophia immediately nodded, stood up and speed-walked to her room. She pulled out her laptop and flipped it open. When nothing but an orange light appeared when she pressed the power button, she cursed and walked back out to where Luna and Drago were talking quietly.
"Where's the laptop charger?" She asked.
"Table." Luna answered, and Sophia plugged in her laptop, flicked the power point switch and pressed the power button on her laptop again. This time, the laptop whirred to life. She logged in and ignored the fifteen emails that she had.
"Thank you for this." Drago said to her.
"No worries." Sophia's fingers flew across the keyboard as she logged in. Luna got out her netbook and did the same.
And the hunt for Dan began.
