I think the title of the chapter just about sums it up.

Thirteen's POV

"Wow." I hear Devin say as I descend the stairs and into the kitchen where everyone is crowded around the counter eating breakfast.

"What?" Jason questions. Devin continues staring at him.

"I just realized how ugly you are."

Jason's out of his seat in a split second, but Devin's already gone, Jason running off after him. I roll my eyes.

"Is this a normal occurrence?" I ask Chase.

He almost grimaces as he nods. "You get use to it...sometimes."

"Devin's like an annoying little brother on drugs." Cody adds, taking a drink from his coffee.

He points at his cup. "Do you want any?" He asks.

I look at it in disgust. I open my mouth to make a comment when a cup of tea is placed in front of me. I turn to look up at Hayden.

"No Cody, and thanks Hayden." I say as I lift the cup to my lips.

"No problem, figured you still weren't drinking coffee."

"Coffee is nasty." I reply to him. It's so much nicer when we're not constantly going at each other. I see Cody and Chase watching us out of the corner of my eye.

"Yeah whatever you say." He retorts with a smirk. Cody lets out a sound similar to a growl and gets up, departing from the kitchen. Chase watches him go.

"What's up with him?" I ask.

Chase shrugs. "Don't know."

"I do." Devin says in a sing song voice, sly grin in on his face, but before he can say anything further, he's tackled to the floor by Jason. I raise an eyebrow at the two.

"Well I'm going to do some research on my computer." I announce. I look up at Chase and point at Jason and Devin, "Call me down if this gets out of hand, and I'll finish it." I tell him. He just shakes his head slightly, and amused smile on his lips.

"Yeah ok." he replies. "Oh and you left your book down here." He holds out the book Zack had taken from me.

"Thanks. "I take it from his hands and head up the stairs, going straight into Cody's room, luckily he's not in there.

I toss the book onto the couch and it bounces off, a small slip of paper falling out.


I grab the paper and turn it over in my hands. I look at the neat writing on the back. I shake my head, trying hard to fight the smile tugging at my lips.

I punch the phone number into my phone and hold it up to my ear. He answers almost immediately.

"You don't give up easily do you?" I ask.

"Not when I know I'll win." Comes his cocky reply. I roll my eyes, even though he can't see me.

"Well you sound really sure of yourself." I tease him lightly.

"Well of course I am, I mean come on have you see me?"

"Yeah as I've said before, I've seen better." I state calmly.

He scoffs, "There's no way you've seen better than all this."

"And how would you know that?"

"I just do." He says. "Hey you want to come to a bonfire party with me tonight?"

"Hmm, teenagers, drinks, you...yeah not very appealing to me, I think I'll pass." I answer teasingly.

"I'll take that as a yes."

"Where in that entire sentence did you hear yes?" I inquire.

"Oh come on, everyone in town's invited, there's going to be a ton of people there. You can't make me go alone."

There's a long silence as I pretend to ponder going, eve

ave my hand at the punching bag. "Get back to punching."

"What if I don't want to?" He questions, taking a step towards me, I match it with one back.

"Then don't. I really don't care."

He takes another step towards me and I glare at him as I take another one back. My back hits the wall. Just freaking great. I turn to leave. He places his arms on the wall on either side of me.

"Cody." I say calmly. "Move aside."

"Now why would I do that?" He asks, a smug look on his face, his breath fanning over my face. I stare at him, neither of us backing down or removing our gazes from each other...until we hear the sound of something breaking.

"Devin." Cody mutters and turns and leaves the room quickly with me right behind him.

We walk into the game room where a broken plate lies on the floor. Devin holding two more, a spider crawling over the broken pieces. Devin throws another one at it.

Cody stalks up to him and grabs the third plate before he can throw that one too.

"What is your problem? Why can't you just walk up to it and step on it like a normal person?" Devin just shrugs in response, and innocent look plastered across his face.

"Devin." I call out to him, he looks over at me. "Like this." I say as I walk up and step on the spider that he still missed. He scowls at me.

"Come on we got a bonfire to plan for." I tell them.

"What?" Cody asks.

"Zack invited me to a bonfire, and I'm bringing all of you. We got make a plan." Cody face darkens at the mention of Zack's name, and Devin nudges him, waggling his eyebrows with a devious look on his face. Cody glares back at him.

"What's up with you?" I question him.

"He's in-" Devin's cut off as Cody's fist goes into his stomach, causing him to double over and gasp for breath.

"You're an idiot." I say to Devin.

"An idiot's who's fifty dollars richer." Cody punches him again.

I wasn't planning on updating at all today, but I decided to when I saw that my book is currently #1 in Action right now.

Thank you so much for everyone who has voted or commented, or even just read the book. Means a lot to me.

Keep up the good work.
