(A\N I only have a couple of things to say: THERE'S A 7TH MEDIATOR BOOK COMING OUT! MEG SAID SO ON HER FACEBOOK PAGE! :D)
I placed my hand on my chest, and glared at him. "Why do you find sneaking up on me so hilarious?" I asked Dad. "I dunno, I just do."
He replied with a grin. I glared at him. "Shouldn't you be in New York? And not spying on me at a boarding school." He stopped grinning. Uh-oh. Dad has another cryptic warning, Somebody save me. Aaaaahhhhh!Note the sarcasm. "I just wanted to tell you to be careful. Haven't you seen those movies with explosions and spies nearly dying?!" I looked at him under my bangs. "You're kidding me right?" I face-palmed myself and let out a sigh. I had a test tomorrow, I've got to find a way to send coded messages through sewing for Madame Dabney's class, and Macey wanted to do my makeup for the morning.
I don't have time for his warnings. "Uhuh. Yeah, have fun with that, I'm going to go explore now." I turned around and marched through the dim tunnel. "Suze, I'm serious." Dad called from behind me. "And so am I. There's over a hundred spies-in-training, and I'm one of them. I'm sure I'll be fine."
Summary of surveillance
Operative: Susannah Simon.
After exploring the secret passageways, The Operative discovered:
2 tunnels that leads to Dr. Fibs lab,
1 tunnel that leads to the kitchen (yum!),
4 tunnels that leads to the same empty room,
and a tunnel that leads outside.
"Wow..." I said when I stepped outside. The mountains were huge! "Suze?" A voice came from the comm. "Meet me in Bex's, Cammie's, Liz's, and Macey's dorm. I think we're about to find out who Cammie's secret crush is!" I rushed back inside and upstairs in at least 45.1 seconds. "What's his name?" I asked as soon as I burst through the door. "Okay 1: Was barging in here without knocking really nesacerry?" Cam asked. I shrugged.
"2: His name is Josh and 3: We need your help in Operation Josh." Cammie told me. "Cool!... What's Operation Josh?"
I questioned. Okay, I admit I sounded clueless and dumb, but I honestly had no idea what, quote unquote, "Operation Josh" was. "Simple, we try to find out more about him, Cammie sneaks out to go see him and we try to keep her cover." Macey replied. "Got it. What did you find out so far?" Jazz spoke this time. "He likes waffles, whitening gum, mint chocolate chip ice cream and his mother has an obsession with catalogs with curtains, bed spreads and throw pillows."
Ummm... Alright-y then! "Ahem... What did you find in his... Garbage?" I felt weird just asking that. "Not much, but we did hack into his Email account." I'm still quite weirded out.
Liz handed me a binder with notes about to fall out. "Um... So this dude is a Momma's Boy, he calls "D' man" bro, and he throws pink letters away by this Deedeee person that just might like him?" When I finished my sentence Cam's head snapped up at me. "He doesn't like her, that's why he threw it away!" My someone has a temper, and I thought I was bad. "Jeez, Cam. Learn to take a joke every now and then." I retorted. "So when does Cam see him again." They all raised eyebrows.
Ugh! It was two weeks before she saw him again! Two weeks, people!
Bex slid the printed email on the table at breakfest... Two weeks later! I swear, the things spies-in-training have to go through, even if it's helping your friend sneak out. "I think she should put her hair up, it'll make her look glamorous." Liz said. "Oh sure, go for glamorous in the town square. I think down, with a headband would look casual and cute." Jazz advised. "Hmmm, hw 'bout just plain down?" I suggested, because new headbands hurt. (A\N Been there, done that.) Jazz caught on. "Totally. And maybe just a little eyeliner." Macey nodded and went to go get her makeup box. It was quiet except for the sound of hangers being shoved aside and Macey telling Cam "Look up" "Look down" and "Hold perfectly still". "Okay, time to talk pocket litter."
Bex told Cam. I honestly have no idea what "Pocket litter" means.
I found out a few seconds later, pocket litter means stuff you carry in your purse and\or pocket. Like: ID, gum, money, etc.
"Handbag or no handbag?" Macey asked. My opinion? Handbag. I mean, it's an accessory and a weapon! While Bex was filling the bag with who-knows-what, I wrote in my notebook. Cam was about to leave when I remembered something... Something important. Oh! I remember now! I picked up Onyx. "You've got to be kidding me!" Cammie exclaimed. I gave the cat to Liz, 'cause that cat just doesn't like to be around me.
After Cam was escorted downstairs by Liz, Bex and Macey, Jazz and I walked to our dorm. "You do know you need a codename, right?" Jazmine asked when I plopped down on my bed and picked up the nearest book: 'How you know if you're being tailed'. "How about... Hmmm..." While my couson was deep in thought, dad materalized behind her. "Ghost." I blurted. Jazmine looked at me for a second.
"Ghost... I like it!" She exclaimed. Dad grinned. "Well, I'm going to take a shower. Have fun reading that epic book "50 spy instincts"!" She was about to protest when I slammed the bathroom door. I was anxious to hear from Cam or the others, but like always: I had homework to do. Only the type of homework that can save my life. Oh well, just a few hours till Cam starts yelling at Macey.
(A\N Ta-da! The next chapter will have Cam telling the girls about her "date" with Josh. Reviews are like peanut butter cups, you can't get enough... But if you're allergic to peanuts, you'd might have to re-think that...)
