Angel Misery: Chapter Eight
“Classes are in Session”
Maria and Aiden received their class schedules for the new year.
Maria grabbed Aiden’s schedule. “Hey! We aren’t in the same classes until the second half!” Maria complained to Aiden.
“Seems like they placed me in the honours classes this year.” Aiden looked over Maria’s shoulder at his own schedule.
“How come!? I placed in the Top 5 in the 7th Grade!” Maria continued to complain.
“Yes, but you ended the year with a 2.2 Grade Point Average. That was probably the deciding factor.” Aiden responded to Maria.
The students of the 8th Grade all sat in a different auditorium than the one they sat in last year. They were introduced to their teachers for the Year.
“Miss Ryans is your Biology Teacher this Year.” The Principal introduced her.
“I see Beautiful smiles seated in front of me, I can’t wait to know you all!” Miss Ryans said to the Students.
“Mr. Yukimura is your World History Teacher.” The Principal gestured towards him.
Mr. Yukimura simply waved his hands and stepped back to where he was.
“Miss Williamson is your Modern Literature Teacher this year.” The Principal introduced her.
“Greetings Students.” Miss Williamson said with a small smile, before returning to where she was standing.
“Miss Richards is your Classical Music Teacher.” The Principal gestured to her.
She bowed her head and stepped back.
“Mr. Bowman is your Physical Education and Health Teacher this year.” The Principal said to the students.
“Prepare to be trained!” Mr. Bowman said with aggressive excitement.
“Mr. Smith will be your Pre-Calculus Teacher for those who aren’t in Honours and Introduction to Calculus Teacher for those in Honours.” The Principal introduced him.
Mr. Smith stepped up, looked around at the students. He nodded his head in approval then stepped back.
“Miss Wang is your Chinese Language Teacher this year for those who are taking Chinese, Mr. Sato is your Japanese Language Teacher for those learning Japanese and Miss Schneider is your German Language Teacher for those taking German.” The Principal introduced all 3 Language Teachers.
They all stepped up and waved.
“And last but not least is Miss Sullivan as your Intro to Psychology Teacher.” The Principal gestured to her.
She waved her hands and then stepped back.
The Principal continued to tell the students what the events of the first semester were going to be.
“Aiden, you need to get out of the honours classes. How am I supposed to take these tests if you are in a completely different class?” Maria asked Aiden.
“I will talk to the principal later to see what he can do.” Aiden said to Maria.
“You can’t use any of your powers to just change the schedule or something.” Maria asked.
“The Principal knows fully well that I am supposed to be in the honours classes, if I am not there then he would know that I tampered with the system. Also I am sure the honours’ teachers are looking forward to teaching me and would guarantee to report me missing from their class.” Aiden said to Maria.
“I see what you mean.” Maria said with her fist under her chin. She then rolled back in her seat. “Great, I guess I am just going to have to try this time. So that I could switch into the honour classes next semester.” Maria complained as she slumped in her seat.
“Figuring that we have the exact same classes in the second half would mean that the Principal did take into account my request from last year.” Aiden said, looking at his schedule.
“Sure he did.” Maria said sarcastically as she was sucked even deeper into her seat.
The Orientation ended and Maria and Aiden had to separate.
“Well I am off to my first bell, which is stupid old Pre-Calc with Mr. Smith…” Maria said, walking in that direction.
“I’ll see you at lunch.” Aiden said to Maria who was not looking back.
Aiden walked over to Biology with Miss Ryans. He sat in a seat near the back of the class so that his height would not bother the students behind him.
Silvia, Rebecca, Issac, and Joshua all walked in together.
Silvia spotted Aiden and didn’t see Maria. She smiled and walked over to him.
“Looks like your friend isn’t with you. What happened?” Silvia asked Aiden.
“Nothing happened, just didn’t have the requirements to be here.” Aiden responded.
“Are you sad?” Silvia asked.
“No, I’ll get to see her during the second half of the day.” Aiden responded with very little emotion.
Silvia then sat next to Aiden. “Don’t worry I will keep you company.” Silvia said with another smile.
Joshua, Issac and Rebecca sat around her.
“They have all certainly grown, at least a few centimeters. Must be what they call puberty. Guess I really haven’t noticed it with Maria because of all the time we spend together.” Aiden thought to himself.
Miss Ryans entered the room.
“Good Morning again!” Miss Ryans said with an excited expression. “As you already know, I am Miss Ryans, your 8th Grade Biology Teacher, and how about we go around the room and have each of you introduce yourselves.” Miss Ryans gestured to the first Student.
The class had 25 Students. Each of them had to say their name, something interesting about themselves and a goal they hope to achieve.
“Hello, my name is Rebecca Wu, I can play Piano, Clarinet, Violin, and Harp, and I hope to one day write a World Famous Symphony.” Rebecca said before she sat back down.
Joshua stood up. “Hi, my name is Joshua Smith, don’t confuse me for Joshua Renolds who is also in our grade. I am the Junior Regional Champion in Speed Chess, and one day I will be a CEO for a Computer Software Company.” Joshua said before sitting down.
Issac stood up and cleared his throat. “Hello, my name is Issac Hoffman, I can memorize the first 1000 digits of Pi, and I hope to one day be an inventor.” Issac said quickly before sitting down.
Silvia then stood up. “Good Morning Classmates, I am Silvia Reiners. I am what people call a renaissance woman. I will one day create the next step in human evolution.” Silvia proudly said before sitting.
Miss Ryans then gestured to Aiden who was the final student.
Aiden stood up.
“Hello, my name is Angeal Heavens, I can pretty much do anything, I just want to be the best friend possible.” Aiden said as he sat back down.
Miss Ryans touched her heart. “Aww, that’s sweet.” She thought to herself.
“Well now that we all got to hear about each other let me hand out a quick assessment test to see where you all are. Following which this period would be over and you are to go to your second bell.” Miss Ryans said, handing out the quizzes.
Maria was in Pre-Calculus class.
She had already laid her head down on the desk looking over to the seat next to her.
“This is so stupid, why can’t Aiden be here with me.” Maria thought to herself.
“Too dumb to be with your boyfriend huh?” Ashley said to Maria.
“Great, and here I thought it couldn’t get much worse.” Maria said, turning her head away.
“Hey, don’t ignore me.” Ashley said, trying to get Maria’s attention.
“I’m not in the mood.” Maria responded.
“Come on, my friends aren’t in this class either. At least I’ve spoken to you before.” Ashley said to Maria.
“Yea, and you all ditched me at the playground like half a year ago, and tried to drop paint on me at the end of the school year last year.” Maria said to Ashley.
“Wow, look at you keeping tabs on everyone who wronged you.” Ashley said scotting closer to Maria. “So Angeal is in the honours classes right?” Ashley said to Maria.
Maria did not reply.
“You know Silvia’s in that class too, and I saw how she was eyeing Angeal during the rally last year.” Ashley said to Maria.
Maria turned her head in the direction of Ashley.
“Aren’t you worried about them spending so much time together, it’s bound that the two smartest students will eventually fall for each other, and where would that put you?” Ashley said to Maria.
“I have absolutely no worries about Angeal. He won’t do anything with Silvia.” Maria said to Ashley.
“How do you know, Maria?” Ashley asked. “Silvia is extremely sneaky.”
Maria then smirked. “Silvia is nothing compared to me, she can try, but in the end I will still win.” Maria responded to Ashley.
“So you’re saying that you are attracted to Angeal then? You guys are in a relationship?” Ashley asked.
“No, me and Angeal are not in a relationship, we are best friends.” Maria said to Ashley.
“Oh, so does Angeal think that?” Ashley asked.
Maria then turned away from Ashley. “Stop talking to me, I’m trying to nap.” Maria responded.
“So you wouldn’t mind if I tried to ask him out?” Ashley asked.
“Knock yourself out, nothing’s going to happen.” Maria said, still turned away.
The First Half of the day had ended and it was lunchtime.
Maria saw Aiden and jumped on him.
“Man! I was so bored, Aiden!” Maria said to Aiden who was holding her.
“How’d it go?” Aiden asked Maria.
“It was just ice breakers, introductions and blah blah. I actually would have preferred to learn something over that.” Maria said to Aiden.
Aiden placed his hand on Maria’s head.
“Ah, what are you doing?” Maria asked him.
“So you have grown, you are 3cm taller than when I first met you.” Aiden said to Maria.
“Oh, you were noticing that too. Yeah, I am starting to get big. Maybe I’ll catch up with your height!” Maria said, jumping up to touch Aiden’s head.
Maria and Aiden then walked into the cafeteria.
Allison who was now in the 7th Grade saw both of them and went over to sit with her sister.
“Hello Maria, hello… you.” Allison said, looking up at Aiden.
“Hello Allison.” Aiden said to Allison.
“How do you know my name?” Allison asked Aiden.
“Maria talks about you all the time.” Aiden responded.
“It had better have been good things.” Allison said to Aiden.
“So why are you sitting with us, Allison? Why aren’t you with the other 7th Graders?” Maria asked Allison.
“Because I saw you with a boy, and wanted to know what that was about.” Allison responded. “Speaking of which, who are you?” Allison addressed Aiden.
“I am Angeal.” Aiden responded.
“Oh, top of the class last year. Okay, then I approve of you.” Allison said, looking back to eat her meal.
“Approve of him for what?” Maria asked Allison.
“To be your boyfriend.” Allison continued eating as if nothing was happening.
“Angeal isn’t my boyfriend, he is my best friend.” Maria said to Allison.
“Your best friend? I thought Angel was your best friend.” Allison said. Then she looked around. “By the way, where is Angel, I thought you said she went to this school.” Allison asked Maria.
“Oh, ah… Angel is sick today.” Maria responded nervously.
“She is? Probably because she was hanging around you so much. Angeal, you better be careful. Kissing her might make you sick too.” Allison said to Aiden.
“We haven’t kissed.” Maria said to Allison.
“I’m just warning him, for the future.” Allison said, continuing her meal.
“Thank you for the warning, Allison.” Aiden responded.
“Your voice sounds familiar.” Allison said to Aiden. “I just don’t know where I have heard it before.” Allison was saying to herself.
“You probably heard it during the speech last year.” Maria laughed nervously.
“I wasn’t there, so that’s not right.” Allison responded.
Allison continued to eat her food.
“Okay, I’m done. I am going to the library.” Allison said, closing her dish and leaving the table. “By the way, I am definitely telling mom and dad about your boyfriend.” Allison said, resuming her walk.
“Is that all everyone thinks about now?” Maria said to herself.
“Do you have any ideas of what we are going to do about ‘Angel’?” Aiden asked Maria.
“Oh yea, I guess she can’t be sick forever can she?” Maria responded. “Oh, I can say that she transferred to another school.”
“Then you would lose your excuse for staying over during the school year because you both couldn’t study together.” Aiden said.
“Yeah, you’re right… ah, I’ll think about it another time.” Maria said quickly, finishing up her lunch. “So Aiden, what was your morning like? Did Silvia try anything?” Maria asked Aiden.
“Each class had a quiz, and that was about it.” Aiden responded.
“And what about Silvia?” Maria asked.
“You want me to spy on Silvia? Do you already have a plan against her?” Aiden responded.
“No, it’s nothing. Was just asking.” Maria said feeling a bit embarrassed.
“Her group had unofficially placed me with them, in each class she sat next to me.” Aiden told Maria.
“She is in every class with you!?” Maria asked, surprised.
“Yes she is. About a quarter of the honours students remain constant in all of my classes. She is one of them.” Aiden responded to Maria.
“Oh, she is definitely going to try something.” Maria said to herself. “We need to make our time together in school worth double now!” Maria said to Aiden.
“Double?” Aiden asked.
“Yes, because you are only in half of my classes, so to make up for it we have to do double the stuff in the classes we have together!” Maria said aloud to Aiden.
Lunch ended and Maria and Aiden went to their Chinese Class first, where Maria talked with Aiden through the entire period.
Then they went to Physical Education where Maria only focused on Aiden. Following that they both went to their Classical Music Class where again Maria just talked through the period. Then ended the day off in Modern Literature.
The school day ended and they both walked outside.
“You didn’t pay attention at all in those classes.” Aiden said to Maria.
“I need to make it double, I don’t have any time to waste.” Maria responded.
“I think you may need to rethink your strategy.” Aiden was saying before Maria quickly interrupted.
“This is the perfect strategy Corporal!” Maria responded.
Allison then met up with Maria and Aiden.
“Oh you are still here.” Allison addressed Aiden.
“That’s accurate.” Aiden responded.
Allison then sat down on the bench.
“What? You didn’t make any friends?” Maria asked Allison.
“They are boring.” Allison said to Maria.
“Did you try?” Maria asked Allison.
“No.” Allison responded quickly.
“Well there’s your issue, how are you going to make friends if you don’t talk to anyone.” Maria said to Allison.
“I’ll just be friends with Angel. Since she isn’t your best friend anymore.” Allison responded to Maria.
“You can’t just steal my friends.” Maria said to Allison.
Their mom then pulled up to pick them up. Allison stood up and immediately went to the car.
“See you later.” Maria said to Aiden.
Aiden then walked to the back of the school where he was about to take off from.
Ashley then approached Aiden.
“Hey Angeal!” Ashley said to Aiden.
“Hello.” Aiden quickly responded without a hint of emotion.
“I never got to talk to you last year, and I just feel like we should get to know each other this year.” Ashley said to Aiden.
“Sure.” Aiden said as he continued to try and walk. Ashley just walked with him.
“My name’s Ashley by the way if you didn’t know, me and Maria know each other.” Ashley said to Aiden.
“Is that so?” Aiden responded. “I need to think of a way to lose her without just going invisible.” Aiden thought to himself.
Ashley continued to talk as Aiden was thinking.
“Oh, I’ll just create a vehicle and act as if I am being picked up.” Aiden thought to himself. He then created a vehicle and had it drive to where him and Ashley were.
“So I was thinking that we could-” Ashley was saying to Aiden before he interrupted.
“My apologies, but my ride home is here. Nice talking to you Ashley.” Aiden said going into the black vehicle that had windows that were much too dark.
Ashley stood there watching Aiden leave.
Aiden met back up with Maria in her room.
“Finally we are back home!” Maria said laying on her bed. She took off her uniform and changed to relaxing clothes.
“We just finished with Summer, are you already so relieved to be out of school again?” Aiden asked Maria.
“It’s the expectations that weigh me down. School would be okay if I could just talk to you all day. When we are here you have to hide, but at school we can talk freely, the only bad thing is the school work.” Maria said to Aiden.
“I see what you mean.” Aiden responded by cleaning up after Maria.
“But now we have Allison who will alway be watching me now!” Maria then put her head into a pillow.
“What’s wrong?” Aiden asked Maria.
“All these people are cutting into our hanging out time!” Maria said to Aiden.
“Do you want to go to the ‘Testing Grounds’ to blow off some steam?” Aiden asked Maria.
“Yeah sure, I need that. It’s the first day of school and I’m already tired of it.” Maria said as she went out the door.
Maria and Aiden were at the lakebed. She drove around in her Go Kart as fast as she could. Aiden flew overhead.
“Freaking Silvia. And Ashley. And Carol, and…” Maria was mumbling to herself as she drove.
“Do you want me to add anything?” Aiden asked Maria.
“Yea, can you make me go faster!” Maria said to Aiden.
Aiden allowed the vehicle to move faster and Maria pressed down as hard as she could. Maria smirked as she was taking the corners.
“What could she possibly be thinking about, school shouldn’t have been that hard.” Aiden thought to himself.
“You guys can’t touch me! I am undefeatable!” Maria said as he was taking corners increasingly sharply.
Maria then lost control and caused herself to be thrown out of the vehicle.
Aiden caught her.
“You’re okay?” Aiden asked Maria as she laid in his arms.
“Okay, I am pooped. Let’s go back.” Maria said to Aiden completely exhausted.
Maria walked through the front door where her parents and Allison were sitting at the dinner table.
“How was the first day of school champ?” Maria’s dad asked.
“It was fine I guess.” Maria said still relatively tired.
“Tell them about your boyfriend, Maria.” Allison said aloud.
“A boyfriend?” Maria’s parents looked at her.
“I don’t have a boyfriend, Allison!” Maria said with a bit of agitation.
“His name is Angeal, and he is tall, smart and they spend every minute with each other.” Allison said at the dinner table.
“He’s a good friend of mine, not my boyfriend, don’t believe her.” Maria said as she sat down.
“Remember what I said Maria, at least wait until you are 16, focus on your studies now. You will wish you did when you get to my age.” Maria’s dad said to her.
“I am focused, that’s why I said I don’t have a boyfriend.” Maria said, getting frustrated.
“Here hunnie, just eat your food then you can start on your homework.” Maria’s mom said, giving Maria another serving.
“So anything happens at school?” Maria’s dad asked his two girls to break the silence.
“We had an orientation, and they handed all of us a map of the school. Told us about the clubs, and gave us homework. That’s all that happened for me.” Allison said as she was eating.
“Pretty much the same here too. Except everyone in the first half of class was annoying.” Maria said as she was eating.
“How’s your friend Angel doing? Are you both in the same classes?” Maria’s dad asked.
“No, we aren’t.” Maria responded.
“Maria said that she was sick, which is why she was sitting with her boyfriend during lunch.” Allison said to her dad.
Maria then put down her eating utensils and went up to her room.
Maria then closed her door.
“Stop talking about that, Allison.” Maria’s mom scolded Allison.
“What, it’s the truth. You can see it in her eyes.” Allison said as she continued eating.
Maria was in her room with her head in her pillow.
Aiden sat down next to her. “What’s wrong?” Aiden asked her.
Maria yelled into her pillow and it was muffled.
Aiden gave her a little time.
“It’s always boyfriend this, and boyfriend that, and attractive this!” Maria yelled into her pillow. After she was done she sat back up on the bed. And laid her head against Aiden’s arm.
“Can I not really just be bestfriends with you?” Maria said with a low tone.
Aiden pat Maria on the head.
“Do you see where I am, Maria? I am right next to you. And that’s not ever going to change.” Aiden said to Maria.
Maria then felt her heart warm up. She then backed away from Aiden. She then grabbed his hands.
“Yeah, they can try and make us seem like a different thing, but we are best friends. I just have to ignore them. You aren’t going to change.” Maria said to Aiden with a smile on her face.
She then heard a knock on her door.
She got up to answer. It was Allison.
“What do you want?” Maria asked, aggravated with Allsion.
“I’m sorry that I keep saying that you have a boyfriend.” Allison said to Maria standing in front of her door reluctantly.
“Did mom say you had to apologize?” Maria asked Allison.
Allison nodded her head.
“You didn’t need to apologize.” Maria smirked at Allison.
“So it’s true then?” Allison asked Maria.
“No, I just don’t care anymore.” Maria said, pushing Allison’s shoulder a little.
“Okay, well. I’ll still be watching. But I won’t assume that he is your boyfriend then.” Allison said to Maria.
“Watch all you like, I hear that’s the only thing little sisters are good for.” Maria joked with Allison.
“Sure. Then I am going to get started with homework then.” Allison said as she left her room.
Maria then went downstairs to apologize for storming off to her room.
The next day of school started.
Maria and Aiden separated from each other to their separate classes.
Maria was paying attention in the class. Ashley had an embarrassed appearance when she looked in Maria’s direction.
She didn’t understand how she failed so badly when talking to Aiden when Maria could do it so easily.
In Biology with Aiden.
The class received their quizzes back.
“As expected from Angeal.” Silvia said, looking at Aiden’s quiz. He had a perfect score. She showed him her quiz and she too had a perfect score.
“Yes, it’s afterall only an assessment quiz.” Aiden responded to Silvia.
Silvia returned feeling a bit embarrassed. “Why was I just excited about that?” Silvia said under her breath.
“Hey look, Silvia. I also got a perfect score.” Joshua showed her.
“Good for you.” Silvia responded to him.
“How did I get that wrong?!” Rebecca looked at her own quiz where she missed one. “Obviously a fox is in the Tribe ‘Vulpini’, not ‘Canini’.” Rebecca said, hitting her own head.
“You’re a musical genius, it’s understandable that you wouldn’t be as good in zoology.” Joshua said to Rebecca.
“Don’t get on your high horse!” Rebecca said to Joshua.
Miss Ryans stepped up to the front of the class. “You all did pretty good. Better than I expected, really.” She said to the class.
Miss Ryans then began to go over the quiz on the white board.
After the quiz was gone over.
“So does anyone have any questions about the quiz?” Miss Ryans asked.
Another student in the honours class raised his hand.
“Yes Richard?” Miss Ryans called on him.
“Will we get to do dissections in this course? Hands- on experience with animal taxonomy would be a great help for me at least.” Richard asked Miss Ryans.
“Yes, on the syllabus you will see that we are dissecting frogs in October.” Miss Ryans said to Richard.
“Interesting, okay then I look forward to showing my expertise with the blade!” Richard said before sitting down.
The Prep Students looked at Richard with a mild amount of annoyance. As if his presence brought down the rest of the class.
Biology ended and Silvia walked with Aiden because they had the same courses.
“So Angeal, where do you usually study?” Silvia asked Aiden.
“At my home.” Aiden responded.
They then walked with a bit of silence. Silvia looked like she had to build courage to ask her next question.
“Where do you live?” Silvia asked Aiden.
“Jolten Court in Forest Hills.” Aiden responded.
“Forest Hills? Oh I live in that community too, in the gated homes. But Jolten Court is where that old Priest lived before he disappeared.” Silvia said to Aiden.
“So it was an old Priest’s home. I guess I should have figured.” Aiden responded to Silvia.
Silvia smiled after getting an actual sentence from Aiden.
“Yes, I heard from my dad to never go there because the place was haunted or something. Though I figure it’s likely because homeless people try to stay there, and it’s dangerous.” Silvia told Aiden.
“There’s no homeless people in Jolten Court anymore. At least not where I stay.” Aiden said to Silvia.
“What is your address then if you don’t mind?” Silvia asked.
“It’s 787 Jolten Court.” Aiden told Silvia as they both sat down in their World History class with Mr. Yukimura.
Mr. Yukimura immediately began teaching as soon as the bell rang.
They received a homework assignment to read the first 3 Chapters of the TextBook, and to complete the essays at the end of each chapter.
“They are really starting out strong with us, before long all these other students will start falling off.” Silvia said to Aiden.
“Agreed.” Aiden responded to Silvia.
Lunch time soon came and Maria and Aiden met up with each other.
“Haha, Aiden guess what!” Maria said to Aiden.
“There are a million things I could guess, what am I guessing for?” Aiden said to Maria.
“So, in Pre-Calc, Mr. Smith tried to pull a fast one on us to see if we were paying attention in class and gave us a pop quiz. But look.” Maria said, showing Aiden her test.
“Oh you got an 83.” Aiden said looking at the test.
“That’s right! I got 83%, I didn’t even need to cheat!” Maria said with a giant smile on her face.
“Well then, I am proud of you.” Aiden smiled.
“So what are you going to give me as a reward!?” Maria said, looking up at Aiden.
“How about I travel across the world and get you Aesthetic Sushi for lunch.” Aiden said to Maria.
Maria’s mouth watered, but she shook her head.
“Not this time, but keep that on the todo list.” Maria said to Aiden.
“Hmm, how about we blow something up?” Aiden suggested to Maria.
Maria was shocked. “Really! You’ll let me blow something up! And not like a tiny thing either.” Maria excitedly asked Aiden.
“Nope, I will create a building for you, and I’ll let you blow it up.” Aiden said to Maria.
Maria then shuffled her feet in excitement. “Haha, now that’s a reward!” Maria called out.
“It’ll have to be after school, so hold unto your excitement.” Aiden said to Maria.
“I feel like I am going to explode if I wait that long, let go during lunch!” Maria said to Aiden.
Aiden then looked at the time.
“Eh, I guess we can squeeze it in.” Aiden said to Maria.
“Yes! Let’s go!” Maria said to Aiden as she grabbed his hand and they went outside.
Aiden took Maria to the ‘Testing Grounds’. Aiden created a 4 Story building and placed various explosions in it.
Maria looked up at the building. With amazement.
Aiden then handed Maria a detonator.
“You do the honours General.” Aiden said to Maria.
“Thanks Corporal.” Maria said with a smile.
“Enemies of the state, I order you to evacuate the building or I will send a missile to your location.” Maria said into her hand as if she was sending a transmission to hostiles.
“You have 10 Seconds.” Maria said before she started counting down.
“Release the explosions!” Maria yelled out as she pressed the button.
The entire building blew up into pieces, the ground shock and debris flew all around them. One second the building was there and the next there was nothing. Maria yelled out in excitement.
“Yeah! That was awesome!” Maria yelled.
“Mission Success.” Aiden said to Maria.
The cloud that formed from the explosion continued to move upward, then was carried off into the wind.
On the way back to school for the rest of the lunch period Maria had her excitement at an all time high.
They both were walking into the cafeteria with an enormous smile. They both talked about what could be improved.
Silvia watched from her table trying to understand why Maria had such an easy time talking to Aiden as compared to her. When she is the one who is closer to his intelligence.
The school day continued and the Students went home.
On the way back home for Silvia.
“Excuse me Charles, but can we take a detour to 787 Jolten Court.” Silvia asked her butler.
“What would be the reason for you wanting to go there?” Charles asked.
“I don’t want to go in, I just want to check it out.” Silvia said as Charles continued to drive.
The two got to that location and looked up at an enormous House on a hill.
“I didn’t know this house was here.” Charles said.
“So it’s a new home?” Silvia asked Charles.
“It is at most 4 Years old.” Charles said to Silvia.
“No wonder I’ve never seen him around.” Silvia said under her breath. “Okay, take me home.” Silvia said reentering the vehicle.
The pair then drove off.
“I need to come up with a reason to visit him, that way we could spend time together after school. That way he would be more comfortable with me.” Silvia thought to herself.
Maria and Aiden were in her room after dinner. Maria was at her desk working on her homework. Aiden of course stood beside her.
“Ah! This is hard!” Maria said to Aiden.
“If you get done with this then we can destroy a boat.” Aiden said to Maria.
“A boat?!” Maria looked up at Aiden.
Aiden nodded his head and Maria continued on with her work.
Maria was happy to focus on explosions and friendship despite school being involved.
“Seems like I’m actually going to be able to get into honours, but by then the entire world would have to explode.” Maria laughed.
“It just might.” Aiden smiled.
