Edison was still peering at Nora's scratch.copyright protection47PENANAuYzJ7tYEAL

"You must have scratched yourself in your sleep."copyright protection47PENANAlxkSsc6OnR

"Are you kidding me? I didn't do this." she dropped her arm.copyright protection47PENANAqLuckFXdbN

"There's a reasonable explanation for everything."copyright protection47PENANAUGLtpTXoxx

"How can you be so nonchalant when I just said your house is haunted?"copyright protection47PENANA9T5uLyGRn3

Jax stared up at both of them but was forgotten for the moment.copyright protection47PENANAJNPd09SYm3

"I don't believe in ghosts and all that jazz, but I believe you think you saw something."copyright protection47PENANALgJwK9pIxX

"Fine," Nora said and pushed past him to go back into the bedroom. She started picking up her things. "I'm not sleeping here."copyright protection47PENANAfGQlbCTRtg

Jax and Edison followed her downstairs.copyright protection47PENANAVc4Kq4Ti3g

"Come on, Nora, it's the middle of the night."copyright protection47PENANAmOx6ligK0N

She looked hurt and frustrated. "Will you please give me a ride home?"copyright protection47PENANAIguyBFbvxF

"Sure, but it'd be easier if you stay then we could go to school together."copyright protection47PENANAMtRQdiV7BY

"No thanks."copyright protection47PENANAoXNW48fkTg

"Don't be mad at me," Edison said as he watched her put on her jacket and get her purse.copyright protection47PENANA8BwCa8ilDQ

"I'm not. I'm just really tired."copyright protection47PENANA0pjSgxacFM

They drove to her house in silence.copyright protection47PENANAb4KY0O7g90

"Do you have a key to get in?" Edison asked as he pulled her into her driveway a few minutes later.copyright protection47PENANAwhB2UMbc7P

"Yeah." She opened the car door and got out. She started to walk away then turned back. "I'll give you your clothes back after I wash them."copyright protection47PENANA38em0vUbIz

"Don't worry about it. Hey, Nora -" but she cut him off by saying thanks and closing the door.copyright protection47PENANAXTDHREwYUF

Edison leaned back against the headrest with a sigh. He didn't pull away until he saw her go inside and close the door.copyright protection47PENANAZrXAuRmF4u

Edison quickly finished his English muffin with jelly and tugged on his coat. He put his cell phone in his back pocket. copyright protection47PENANAXMQBuIg0Hb

As he was picking up his backpack, someone loudly knocked at the door.copyright protection47PENANAGGCEh6vEMA

Edison opened it to find Carter standing on the doorstep with Trey leaning against the sports car parked on the side of the street. He caught Edison's eye and smirked at him.copyright protection47PENANA8gILZcoeAd

"Hand over the homework you promised," Carter demanded.copyright protection47PENANAbyZ2atKqur

"You're out of luck."copyright protection47PENANACa8eOplk47

"No, it's not going down like that." Carter started forcing Edison back inside of the house.copyright protection47PENANAUdoDYoPmCq

"I told you I'm done doing your homework-yours and everyone else's."copyright protection47PENANAzOZzR92BAw

"Not acceptable."copyright protection47PENANA3cHcrwCNQG

"That's the way it is," Edison said, holding his ground.copyright protection47PENANAULTioSGeej

"Sit down, and do the work now."copyright protection47PENANAEO8Dn0NqBn

"No way."copyright protection47PENANAXFAES2auP1

Carter pushed Edison into the sunny kitchen and shoved him into a chair. He threw his backpack on the table.copyright protection47PENANAbJM52bXJpc

"Get to work. I'll wait." He stood back and folded his arms.copyright protection47PENANA331cHpcuPO

Suddenly, Edison felt that warm feeling surround his body and mind. It slowed his mind down and gave him extreme confidence at the same time.copyright protection47PENANASMutqmvBRk

He folded his arms just like Carter and looked at him with a defiant grin.copyright protection47PENANAC23o86z5QZ

"I guess I may not see you at graduation, Carter. What a shame that would be."copyright protection47PENANAiT2j5KJiey

Carter's face turned red and he clenched his hands.copyright protection47PENANA67lAAMX5nP

"You little jerk!" He started coming towards Edison.copyright protection47PENANApZSto0AY6q

Suddenly, there was a horrific crash outside. The sound of metal grinding against metal.copyright protection47PENANAXok0IqKrIZ

They both ran out to see a Ford Explorer's front end smashed against the back of Carter's sports car, which looked unrepairable. Trey was standing on the sidewalk in a daze. He had a cut on his face from flying glass.copyright protection47PENANA0P7lqH7nNu

A man got out of the Explorer and asked if he was okay.copyright protection47PENANAcdu4HT5hRb

"I think so," Trey said.copyright protection47PENANAIPA2QjtBKb

Carter looked at Edison who looked odd. He looked like he was in a trance or something.copyright protection47PENANABK0I6rqdPd

"You had something to do with this, Bates," Carter pointed a finger at him.copyright protection47PENANAI2rd786cqY

"Me? I was in the house with you, genius."copyright protection47PENANAn9NYbDhEf2

"I'll find out what you're up to. You're probably into satanism or some crap." Carter said. copyright protection47PENANAQQMRyTiY67

This made Edison start to laugh so hard that he had to sit down on the grass until he gained his composure.  When the laughing fit subsided, he very seriously said,copyright protection47PENANAcP9E2gM8td

"It's not even close to Satanism."copyright protection47PENANA6RmUPyy7dN
