"You should've seen it Zack!"
Cody collapsed onto the couch as Zack shut the door to the suite behind them.
It was Cody's first day back at school after resting up in the hospital for a couple of days, and he had told Zack and Carey that he wasn't going to end up back in there. Not because of Riley anyway.
"I was standing outside the classroom and he just seemed to come out of nowhere!" He continued with his story, "He looked so mad, but I just did what you said and didn't run off or anything."
Zack listened attentively while Cody recounted his first post-encounter with Riley, who now looked about ten times scarier with the four stitches that ran across his forehead, no thanks to Zack.
"So what did he do?"
"He started walking towards me, which I gotta' admit freaked me out, but I just glared him down and didn't move. Guess what happened?"
A smile grew across Zack's face at the toddler like excitement that filled Cody's voice. "What happened?"
"He stopped dead in his tracks! He looked really scared, then he ran off in the other direction!"
The regained memory of the look that had appeared on Riley's face made Cody laugh, which encouraged Zack join in just as enthusiastically. He then sat down next to Cody and placed a hand over his shoulder, beaming at him.
"I'm proud of you Cody."
"Thanks." He replied, "I just wish you could've seen it."
"Yeah. Me too."
But little did Cody know, Zack had seen it. Well, not seen it as much as he had caused it. At least Riley ran off after Zack appeared behind Cody giving the bully an evil 'remember the warning I gave you' death stare.
So Zack was still helping Cody a little bit without telling him. He just saw it as a confidence boost - it was going to help in the long run. Besides, it's just like he said; nobody picked on his little brother except for him.
Finished! -happy face-
