Sonny looked around, making sure no one was around. She twitched her nose and pieces of the broken vase started to levitate, then come together and then the vase was fixed, totally fine again. Sonny nodded to herself, a smile spreading across her face. She walked out of her dressing room, closing the door after her and bumped into Chad.
"Chad." She said, her voice laced with venom though a smile was twitching up the corners of her mouth. He looked down at her.
"Sonny." He replied, his eyes narrowing. Sonny shook her head and continued.
"What are you even doing here?" She asked, tapping her foot impatiently. Chad looked to the ground.
"I was on my way to my dressing room, if you must know." He replied, flashing her a smile and hoping she'd forget about it.
"The long way round?"
"I was...hoping to catch Jack the mail man."
"Josh." Sonny corrected, confusing him.
"It's Jack's day off?" Sonny looked at him funnily.
"The mail man!"
"Well if you want to be specific, then fine!"
"So we're good?" Chad asked smoothly, as he wandered off.
"Oh, we're so good." Sonny shouted after him. She sighed as she watched him turn the corner, wishing that she didn't have the same routine everyday. She headed to set again and soon found Tawni waiting to start the check it out girls sketch.
"Sonny, I have been waiting for three minutes! That's three minutes I'll never get back," Tawni tutted.
"Okay, okay, I'm sorry." Sonny said as she tried to get into character. There was too much on her mind, and she wanted to get rehearsals over and done with even though she usually enjoyed them.
She kept getting her lines wrong anyway and Marshal let them go early. "Thanks Sonny, I got the three minutes back! I'm gonna go put some more Cocoa Mocha Cocoa on, see you later for fro-yo!"
Sonny waved and walked to her dressing room again. She wondered why she didn't just listen to her mother and use her powers to move herself when she was tired. She was afraid of getting caught, yes, but there was no one even around, surely it would be okay, just this once? She zapped herself to inside her dressing room and was surprised to see Chad there. She looked around and then scurried behind the door, and waited a moment. She noisily made her way in to warn Chad without him knowing she knew he was there. She heard him run out of the other door and then sunk down onto the couch.
"Gosh, I won't be doing that again!" She whispered to herself. "Too risky, too too risky."
She always wanted to be normal, and just be human. She didn't understand why she was encouraged to use them. She was warned off of revealing herself to humans, though. Well, the witch side of her. She got up and brushed her hair, ready to go home.
She didn't mind knowing how to do witchcraft, after all it did come in handy. She just hated the thought of anyone else knowing. She left a small note to Tawni explaining her absence and then clicked her fingers, taking her home instantly. She shocked her mom as she popped right in front of her.
"Sonny!" She gasped. "What are you doing home so early?" Connie asked.
"I'm just a bit down," Sonny explained. "I almost got caught doing witchcraft again."
"Oh sweetie," Connie replied "you have to be careful! I don't know how you manage to get caught so often. I've never once."
"Well nor have I," Sonny retorted. "Just almost."
"Your friends won't mind. Zora will think it's great!" Connie tried to soothe her daughter. Sonny flew her hands in the air.
"Well, maybe so, but it wasn't my friends. It was Chad."
"Ohh." Replied Sonny's mom. "I see."
"Yeah." Sonny replied. "I'm going to my room. I just don't feel like being sonny today, mom."
"I understand, sweetie."
Later that evening, Connie and Sonny were sitting down to dinner. Sonny got up and put the dishes away after washing them, and started on her homework. She soon got bored and started daydreaming. As much as she hated to admit it, she was daydreaming about Chad. As soon as she was shook out of her dream, she finished her homework and was putting it away as the doorbell rang. Unfortunately for Sonny, she wasn't putting it away the typical way - she was levitating it to the kitchen table.
"Darn," Sonny shouted as the papers and pens flew and hit the door with a considerable amount of force. She ran to the door and tried to scoop everything up. Everytime she got close, she dropped it all again. Eventually she just opened the door, kicking it all away. She smiled sheepishly up at the surprise visitor.
"Hi, Chad," She said, trying to sound cheerful.
"Did you throw your homework at me?"
"At the door..." Chad nodded, his eyes darting as if he was at a loss.
"Well, Cloudy and Rainy told me that you were sick. I just came to check. Don't want you giving me your Random diseases, now do we?"
"No...guess not." Sonny replied, her eyebrows raising.
"Well you seem fine. Ditching are we?"
"No, I really don't feel well. Now if you don't mind, I'd like you to leave."
"Alright, no need to get bossy. I'll be on my way if you -" Sonny interrupted Chad with the biggest sneeze ever. He stepped back. "I see you weren't lying." He replied.
"I feel funny..." Sonny said, swaying. Suddenly, things in the room started flying. "Mom! Can you get me a tissue?" Connie came into the room, carrying a pack of tissues. She was too late and a box flew into Sonny's hands.
"Whoa...did you see that?" Chad asked, in awe. Sonny's eyes bulged. She looked at her mom worriedly.
"Mom!" She mouthed. Connie shrugged. "Must be wind.." Sonny breathed, trying to act natural.
"That was no wind!" Chad exclaimed. "Something brought the tissues right to you!"
"Yes...something. Chad, do me a favour and get me some water?" Sonny asked, turning to face her mom. The glass flew out of Chad's hands, landing on the coffee table next to the door. Sonny winced and picked up the water. "Thank you?" She said, unsure.
"Um...you're welcome." He said. He backed out, mumbling a goodbye. Sonny put her head in her hands.
"What am I gonna do?" She shouted at her mom, though she had no idea either.
