The next few days were kind of like Friday, the four of us were constantly together. Aiden seems to get along with Bria and Lilia well.
On Saturday I was supposed to go out with Emerson to this new fancy restaurant, but we still had a lot to do on our project and had to cancel
"I'm sorry, this project is important. It will be our first big grade and I need to get it done." I said over the phone
"Jordan, I understand. We'll reschedule for tomorrow. I can change our reservations to 6:00 tomorrow instead of tonight."
"Baby, I'm sorry I cant do tomorrow either. I have to go to Aiden's Dads shop an hour away tomorrow at 4:00 tomorrow afternoon to spray the gloss on the project as the final touch. I would go earlier but Aiden has a chess match and I need to go with him."
"You're spending more time with this Aiden dude, than your boyfriend. I haven't seen you since school yesterday and he slept over at your house last night. I kind of feel like you like him more than me now. Whatever. I have to go. Bye" he said, hanging up immediately after saying those words, not even giving me a chance to explain.
Maybe he's right. Maybe I do like Aiden more than I like him.
I tried to push these thoughts out of my head and finish the project, but I kept going back to those words 'I kind of feel like you like him more than me right now'
Monday was our last day to work, it was due on Tuesday, so we brought it to school Monday just so we didn't accidently forget it Tuesday. When we brought it into Ms. Brooks room she seemed so pleased with our diagram, which is amazing because she may seem nice, but she's very hard to please. She allowed us to keep it on the floor behind her desk to make sure no one accidently stepped on it and messed it up, which I was so pleased with. We spent every waking moment on this for the past three days and I wasn't going to let some idiot ruin it.
Aiden didn't have every class with us, only History, Algebra, and Chemistry, so we didn't get to hang out with him the entire day. I feel like he has become one of us and that we can trust him.
"I think we should tell Aiden about what Capri, Tainne, and Marlo said on the first day of school." I said in Homeroom.
"What? Why?" Bria said confused.
"Well, I think we can trust him and we've been hanging out a lot... Ummmm..... I think they might come after him, you know, to get to us. I think it would be better if he knew it might happen."
"I think she's right." said Lilia.
"Yeah, I guess we should. It would be a lot safer." said Bria
"We'll tell him in Algebra." said Lilia
"So what you're saying is when you guys talked to the others at lunch that one day, they threatened to make your life miserable just so you'd give up being smart?" said Aiden, trying to catch on, "and you said no, so you wanted to tell me why?"
"We figured if you stick around with us, they might want to go after you to get to us." Lilia tries to explain. "We wanted to let you know just in case you didn't want to take that risk and decided to leave us alone. Those girls mean business and they aren't playing around. They could hurt you and your friends."
"Well I'm not going to do that, I'm staying by your side no matter what. I don't care what happens to me. I care about you guys now and I'm not just going to leave you because some girls made a threat to destroy you." Aiden says
And that's how Aiden Webley became our Best Friend.
After school we saw Tainne, Marlo, and Capri laughing at their lockers. It didn't look good, I couldn't hear everything they said but I heard very important words. Their. History Project. Hammer. I instantly run to Ms. Brooks room with out telling the others, there I found Ms. Brooks helping someone at the front of their class. I race in, towards the desk and instantly see it. The entire continent of Europe was destroyed. All of it. It looked as if someone took the sharp part of a hammer and played whack- a-mole with it. On Asia there was a note "I warned you, this is just the beginning. It'll just get worse from here. -Kisses P.S. I hear someone's good at photo shopping."
I didn't know what to do. I just fell to the ground and laid there looking at Europe in silence. Eventually the others and Ms. Brooks found me, we just sat there I silence before Ms. Brooks broke the silence.
"I cant believe someone would do such a thing. I'm so sorry. Ill still give you a 100 for it since it wasn't your doing, but ill give you bonus if you find a way to fix it by tomorrow. I'm going to find the person who did this and they will pay."
All of us knew who did it, but we never told her. None of us would ever tell anyone. Maybe that was a mistake. Maybe it wasn't. All we knew is that this meant war and that we would find a way to destroy them too.
