Gabby's POV

"No…No….No! Not again! Stupid Black Death. Killed me again" I said, turning off my browser. S'up, I'm Gabby Rodriguez and I'm a gamer. I'm only in middle school but I have one of the highest ranks in the game…except for Black Death. He's the only gamer whose ever beat me in the game.

"Gabby! Get ready for school!" My mom yelled from the kitchen.

"Give me second!" I yelled back. I shut the screen of my laptop and ran downstairs.

"Honey, eat your breakfast" My mom said, putting a plate of disgusting 'scrambled' eggs. My mom isn't the best cook. Heck, she isn't even a good cook. But she's an amazing baker.

"You know what? I'm not that hungry. I'll take a banana and eat it on the bus" I said.

"C'mon! Just try it" She said. I rolled my eyes and held my nose. I put the fork up to my mouth and almost puked. I gagged and ran over to the sink. I spit it out and turned to my mom.

"Oops…sorry" She said. I grabbed a banana and ran outside.

"Hey look! It's gamer girl!" One of the boys said when I walked outside. I rolled my eyes and got on the bus. One of the blondes stuck out her leg and quietly snickered. I smirked inwardly and pretended not to see it. Once I got to her, I stepped over her leg.

"You should really pull that in. Someone could trip on it" I said, smirking at her. She just gawked at me. You should know something; I'm not the most popular girl at school. Since I don't have blonde hair or have blue eyes. I sat down in the very back, next to some high school kids who go across the street from us. I think they're names are Dante and Wyatt.

"Hey guys" I said, sitting in between them.

"Hey Gabby" Wyatt said.

"S'up Gabs" Dante said, fist pumping me.

"Hey, can we trust you with something?' Wyatt asked.

"If you're going to tell me that you're starting puberty, don't tell me" I said sarcastically. Dante laughed his maniacal laugh. I laughed to and we fist pumped again.

"No! That's not what I need to tell you. It's a secret that only me, Dante, Lyle and Angie know about" He said. I looked over at Dante, who just realized the situation and looked very excited.

"You know the game 'Maldark Conquer of All Worlds'? Well, a couple of months ago, we kinda…broke it. And then Maldark got out then Angie got sucked into the game then I saved her and we defeated Maldark and threw him back into the game but now, there a leaks that are actually real monsters and stuff from the game!" He said in a rush, quieting his voice to a whisper. He looked at me for a moment. Expecting something.

"Good one, Wyatt. I'm assuming you came up with this, Dante, 'cause I know that Wyatt wouldn't have been able to come up with something like that" I said, laughing. I looked at Dante, who for once, looked dead serious.

"You're not joking…are you?" I asked. Dante shook his head.

"And you want to recruit me…don't you?" I asked, looking at Wyatt. He nodded. I groaned and rested my head in my hands.

"Well, this is just lovely"
