“Hey Aisha, what’s up? You’re not looking very happy,” said Ryan.
He was right. In my mind, all I could think about was those mean girls and wonder why they didn’t like me.
“Ryan, can I ask you a question? When you first moved in, did you feel accepted?” I asked.
“Yes, they loved me and cared about me, unlike anyone else. They stuck by me, even when I made mistakes and wasn’t the nicest.” he replied.
“What about with other kids?” I asked.
“I had my share of fights and problems with other kids, but eventually I got over it.” He said with a laugh.
“Thanks for the advice Ryan. I’ve always wanted a big brother, maybe I’ll finally get my wish.”
I got up and walked to my room. I hadn’t even tried to use our plan, but in turn I had. Novia and I were just one step closer to our goal.
Two Days Later…
Novia and I were walking through the dark, dim halls on our way to chemistry class. It was gloomy outside and I think everyone inside was having a bad day. I knew I was, first I spilled a bowl of cereal on my new pants, then we had a pop quiz in history, and now we had to go to Chem.
“Hey losers, whatcha doing?” sneered Karen.
Ugh, I really disliked mean girls, “Hi Karen,” I said sweetly, “We were just heading to chemistry. What about you?”
“Oh, you’re in Chemistry? That’s to bad, because I am too. Hopefully I don’t have to sit next to you two.”
“HEY! What’s going on here?” Jake demanded.
I looked up and saw Jake glaring at Karen, with him was Ryan.
Karen stuttered, “I was just talking to your sisters about how awesome it was that we are in the same class.”
“Bye Karen,” I said loudly.
“Sorry about that, some kids are just jerks,” said Ryan.
“See you after school. We have to run. We’re gonna be late!” I said hurriedly.
“I now call this meeting to order,” I announced, “Aisha, I know this is an unplanned meeting, but there is something important that we must discuss.”
“We decided at our last meeting to meet in a week to decide if our subjects have passed the test, but I think after what we saw today that we should vote now! How do you feel Aisha?”
“I agree. All in favor of inviting Jake and Ryan to our plan says ‘I'” Aisha proclaimed.
“I!” she said.
“I! Let’s bring them in,” I said.
“Ryan, Jake, you can come in now!” she called.
“I feel like I’m in court or something,” Ryan joked.
I cleared my throat, “Boys, we need to tell you something top-secret. We might have lied to you a few times, sorry, but that’s only because of what we are about to tell you.”
Then Aisha said, “We recently found out that Novia and Jake’s dad has been working more and is grieving deeply. I am also trying to get adopted. So, Novia and I have concocted a plan. We would like you two to be involved, but only if you promise not to tell anyone.”
“HA,” said Ryan “I told you they were up to something.”
“So you were right…” muttered Josh.
“BOYS, are you going to help us or not?”
“I’m in,” said Josh.
“I’m game,” Ryan said.
“I’m ready to do this.” said Aisha.
I looked at each of them and then placed my hand on top and said, “Thank you so much, all three of you. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, so we better get started!”
