Chapter 6.

Ronnie and Drew arrived at their apartment feeling like they were rode harder than a rental car during spring break. When they arrived on the grounds, Will Du made them run ten times around the perimeter. After that they had to take a test that made the SATs look like a personalty quiz in the back of a fashion magazine. And the worst in Ronnie's opinion was that Drew was flirting with that girl the whole time. "So, I see that you are Hau hit it off real quick like." Said Ronnie with a bit of venom in her voice.

"Huh? Oh, I think she was just trying to get a rise out of her brother. I know that someone like her wouldn't flirt with the likes of me." Said Drew as he headed to the kitchen to get something to drink.

"From what I saw, She was about to jump you on the field." Said Ronnie, as she remembered how intently Hau was staring at Drew's ass. She should know as her gaze was cast in the same direction. Why am I acting like a jealous girlfriend? We're not dating. Yet I want to kill that little Asian bitch for looking at my man.

"Ronnie are you jealous?" Said Drew.

"Just a little, fine OK a lot. I guess like I feel that she's muscling in on my claim. Damn it why am I so honest with you?" Said Ronnie as she couldn't stop the words coming from her mouth.

"I'm your claim? OK so we've gone from pussyfooting around the subject to me being your claim. Wow I'm moving up in the world." Said Drew laying the sarcasm on a bit thick. "Ronnie. I want us to work. But even if we don't work out. We're still friends right?"

"Yeah, that's never going to change. " Said Ronnie as she hugged her best friend.

"Can I try something?" Asked Drew.

"Wha--?" Said Ronnie as she felt his lips pressed against hers.

They kissed for several moments deepening their feelings towards each other. The kiss was broken though when Drew moved his hand up Ronnie's shirt. She gently pressed against his shoulders and pushed him away. "Baby steps." Said Ronnie. "I love you. But I don't want to rush it."

"My libido strongly disagrees but I'm glad that my mind is the ruling party in my body. As much as it hurts me to say. I agree. Can we at least kiss again?" She nodded and they kissed for several minutes.

The next day at GJ was as rough as the first. Will Du had Ronnie running laps and Drew doing push ups. "Come on Lipsky. You only have fifty more to do." Said Du as he watched Drew go into another set of ten. Ronnie on the other hand was contemplating ways in which to kill Du without anyone noticing. I wonder if Kim thought the same way when she trained to be a agent?

They had finished the exercises for the day. Now it was on to espionage for dummies, or as it was called simply espionage Wade Lode was the instructor for that class. "Today we are going to learn how to use a mired of gadgets. Most of which were developed by me." Said the former child genius.

"Ego much?" whispered Ronnie to Drew.

"I heard that Miss Stoppable. Thanks to this." Said Wade as he pointed to his ear. "I've created a hearing aid so small that it's the size of a hair. The power source is nerve impulses sent from your brain."

"But doesn't that interfere with your body in any way?" Asked Hau.

"Only in a small sample of the tests did anything like that happen." Said Wade.

"What happened to them?" Asked Drew.

"Nothing bad. They can still tie their shoes and everything." Said Wade looking rather sheepish.

For the rest of the lesson, Ronnie got parterned up with Will Du Jr, while Drew was partnered up with Hau.

They used various gadgets. Ronnie kept on looking in the direction of Drew and Hau's table. Hau had her hand on Drew's arm as she opened up a small jar that held a concentrated knock out gas. The smell wafted to Ronnie's table and she fell into a deep sleep.

Ronnie was revived several moments later by a scared Hau. "I'm so sorry. Please don't be mad. Are you OK?" Said the Asian girl in a rapid cadence.

"Unghhh. That stuff is defently stronger than the lip gloss that we used on missions. OK you're forgiven. Just as long as you don't do that again." Said Ronnie as she tried to make the room stop spinning. OK I'm going to be nice to her. I know.

"Hau, would you like to come over to Drew's and my place on Friday? We can watch movies until our eyes bleed." Said Ronnie.

"Sure." Said the bubbly Asian girl.

Ronnie and Drew entered the apartment one at a time. Ronnie had a large meat pizza in her hands while Drew had two twelve packs of soda. "Drew, I invited Hau over on Friday." Said Ronnie in a tone that she hoped sounded casual.

"I thought you hated her?" Said a very confused Drew.

"That was just me jelling. I know that she's not a threat. Besides we need to make friends since we're new to this town." Said Ronnie. Plus if she tries anything with Drew I can kick her ass and no one would be the wiser. Ronnie thought with a wicked grin.

"What's with the grin? Why do I have the feeling that Friday doesn't bode well for Hau?" Said Drew as he grabbed a slice of pizza.
