Ok, there is an ASTONISHING lack of stories about the Secret Series. -.- WHY DOESN'T ANYONE APPRECIATE IT? Ok, so if you're reading this, listen. Post SOMETHING, JUST SOMETHING, about the Secret Series. I can NOT believe there are only 2 other fan fics. Post cheesy one-shots, whatever! Make this fandom LIVE, people :O Alright, my story probably sucks. But at least I tried. And I hope you do too :) Pretty please? Anywho, on with the fanfic.
"Ow!" Max-Ernest exclaimed as he accidentally stapled his thumb.
Yo-Yoji laughed. "Dude, haven't you used a staple gun before?"
"It's called a staple gun?" Max-Ernest asked. "That doesn't sound safe."
Cass said bossily. "That's why I'm always careful with them."
"Do you think it could be poisonous?" Max-Ernest asked. "I heard that if you keep staples too long, they rust. And rust is actually really bad for you if you touch it. How 'bout that?"
"How 'bout that?" Cass echoed, smiling. "Maybe you should go see the nurse."
"I think I will." Max-Ernest said. "I hope it hasn't rusted."
He got up and left. Cass unfolded another poster.
"Hey, I don't remember this one." Yo-Yoji peered over Cass's shoulder. "Dude, it looks epic! Did you make it?"
"No." She frowned.
The poster had the usual heading. 'Alien Earache- We rock so hard, you hear it on Mars!'
Cass frowned at the smaller letters underneath.
'Order a ticket: synonym. of Djehuty'
"What's the synonym of Ja-hooty?" Yo-Yoji asked.
"It's Djehuty. And I don't know. Is it like, a musical, maybe? And we have to order tickets?" Cass wondered.
Yo-Yoji's eyes widened. "You think it could be from..."
They stared at each other. They hadn't heard from the Terces Society ever since Cass had discovered the secret.
"We have to find out what the synonym of Djehuty is!" Cass said excitedly.
"Yo, I just had a thought. You know how synonym means like the meaning of something? Maybe we have to find the meaning of a Ja-hoot- whatever!"
"You mean... a synonym for Djehuty?"
"Why wouldn't it say 'for' instead of 'of'?" Cass argued.
"It doesn't make a difference, does it?" Yo-Yoji shrugged.
"OK. What does Djehuty mean, anyway?" Cass asked.
"I dunno. Maybe Max-Ernest does."
"Oh, hey Yo-Yoji!" They heard a voice.
Cass and Yo-Yoji both groaned.
Veronica skipped over."Wow! Yo-Yoji, are those for your band? They look epic!"
Cass rolled her eyes when Veronica said the word 'epic'.
"Cass!" Veronica pretended to be surprised. "Are you helping him? Aw, that's so cute! Are you, like, a couple now?"
Cass's ears turned bright red. "No!"
Veronica turned to her friend Naomi and they laughed. "Is Max-Ernest upset? Is that why he's not with you?"
"He just went to the nurse, yo." Yo-Yoji said in an uncharacteristically flat voice.
"Veronica! Naomi! What are you doing out of class?" Mrs. Johnson strode over.
"Um, nothing." Veronica said. "Just using the bathroom."
"Come on." Naomi muttered, dragging Veronica by the hand.
It was well-known that Mrs. Johnson favoured our three heroes ever since their 'adventure'.
She beamed at Cass and Yo-Yoji. "It's good to see you working so diligently. Those posters look marvelous!"
Cass managed a faint smile. Yo-Yoji nodded his thanks.
Mrs. Johnson looked at the posters for a few moments before walking away. Cass and Yo-Yoji were left in awkward silence, neither of them willing to speak. Unwillingly, Cass remembered how his hand had brushed hers on Graduation Day... her face burned and she looked away.
"Guess what?" Max-Ernest bounded up. "It hasn't rusted. How 'bout that?"
He proudly showed them the band-aid on his finger. "She says it'll get better in a few days... you OK?" He noticed their silence.
Cass snapped back to reality. "Uh, yeah."
"You're not gonna believe this, dude." Yo-Yoji grinned.
They showed him the poster.
"Wha- oh! Djehuty?"
"Yeah." Cass said. "We think it's a message from... you-know-who."
"Voldemort?" Max-Ernest asked, confused.
"No, dummy!" Cass said. She lowered her voice. "The Terces Society!"
"Oh." He stared at it. "I don't get it."
"We think we need to order a ticket for some sort of show." Yo-Yoji said.
"Some sort of show?"
"Yeah. We need to find a synonym for Djehuty. I think that's the name of some sort of show we're supposed to watch." Cass supplied.
Max-Ernest shook his head. "But that doesn't make sense."
"Why not?" Cass asked, annoyed.
"Because... don't you guys know who Djehuty is?"
Cass and Yo-Yoji shook their heads.
"Who's Ja-hooty?" Yo-Yoji asked.
"It's pronounced Dje..." Max-Ernest corrected.
"Yeah, yeah, whatever." Yo-Yoji interrupted. "Who is this dude anyway?"
"Well, he's not really a dude. Or maybe you could call him a dude, but he's a..."
"Max-Ernest!" Cass said exasperatedly. "Just tell us who he is!"
"OK, OK." Max-Ernest said. "Djehuty is another name for the god Thoth."
Cass and Yo-Yoji stared at him, dumbfounded.
Ok, that was weird :S I have this feeling they're a bit OOC :/ Whatever haha xD And if you figure out my riddle, I will give you a virtual hug :) I won't continue this unless I get reviews.
