Maddie Parker, a 16 year old girl who was born into a family of spies. She finally goes to school, meets her best friend Alice and her crush Jason but can she tell her friends the truth?
And what would the consequences be?


8. 8.

I glance longingly at my laptop before shutting it down and putting the information I had gathered into the file. I grab my phone, purse and jacket, scribble a note to say where I am and start my walk into town. I usually get the bus to school but I doubt there’ll be one running this late. As I'm walking I call Alice.

“Maddie, why are you calling me at 11 at night? Why are you even still awake?”

“Did I wake you?”


“Sorry M. Is everything okay?”


“I am asking if everything is okay.” I repeat slowly.

“I guess. Why?”

“Matty called me.” The phone goes silent. “Alice?” More silence. “Alice what happened?”

“I…I don’t know.” She said slowly and in a whisper so quiet that I could barely hear it.

“Did you have a fight?”  Again more silence. “Ali, please talk to me.” She hangs up the phone and I sigh. I look around and see that I’m already at the school.

“Hi.” A voice says from the darkness. I jump and my heart starts to race until I realise it’s Matt.

“Hey. Want to tell me what’s going on now?” I ask harshly

“I was about to ask you the same thing.”


“You’re hiding something and it’s messing with Alice. She knows you’re not telling her something.” Busted! I think. Being a spy is going to ruin my life.

“I can’t. I can’t tell her.”

“It’s your friendship. You want to ruin it, it’ll be on you but for Alice’s sake I am begging you to tell her or explain or something.”

“I don’t really know what this has to do with you. It’s none of your business really.”

“It’s messing with Alice. She’s constantly paranoid and as her boyfriend that is my business.”

“Does she know you’re here?” I inquire.


“Are you going tell her?”

“I don’t know yet.”

“Oh right.” I turn around and walk away. By the time I get round the corner, I’m crying. I have to tell her. I'm not allowed but like she said, since when have I ever cared about the rules.
