Edison was still peering at Nora's scratch.copyright protection17PENANAKjaQccZHKg

"You must have scratched yourself in your sleep."copyright protection17PENANAgIvB4pudqm

"Are you kidding me? I didn't do this." she dropped her arm.copyright protection17PENANA4S9yvEpkdk

"There's a reasonable explanation for everything."copyright protection17PENANA0XDaOQnNy8

"How can you be so nonchalant when I just said your house is haunted?"copyright protection17PENANA4OQzqVZV9q

Jax stared up at both of them but was forgotten for the moment.copyright protection17PENANAhdirLO5b9j

"I don't believe in ghosts and all that jazz, but I believe you think you saw something."copyright protection17PENANAv9h9k5ZITy

"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 protection17PENANAQXnHxNCxIM

Jax and Edison followed her downstairs.copyright protection17PENANAX0ZgrL4xWe

"Come on, Nora, it's the middle of the night."copyright protection17PENANARrn8AIeAr7

She looked hurt and frustrated. "Will you please give me a ride home?"copyright protection17PENANA8i4w0CjD92

"Sure, but it'd be easier if you stay then we could go to school together."copyright protection17PENANAp73onvas37

"No thanks."copyright protection17PENANAGUz42aNgKe

"Don't be mad at me," Edison said as he watched her put on her jacket and get her purse.copyright protection17PENANAoTxtpx5Jae

"I'm not. I'm just really tired."copyright protection17PENANAMzlPYJk8bn

They drove to her house in silence.copyright protection17PENANAgRiPWkZJBK

"Do you have a key to get in?" Edison asked as he pulled her into her driveway a few minutes later.copyright protection17PENANAXZDvs32yMd

"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 protection17PENANANyM9nLSIU4

"Don't worry about it. Hey, Nora -" but she cut him off by saying thanks and closing the door.copyright protection17PENANA6aWoZSJYBk

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 protection17PENANAIzkm4Np7lc

Edison quickly finished his English muffin with jelly and tugged on his coat. He put his cell phone in his back pocket. copyright protection17PENANAeXWamV35UE

As he was picking up his backpack, someone loudly knocked at the door.copyright protection17PENANAqDdK0iyppU

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 protection17PENANABJ2mQkvIvm

"Hand over the homework you promised," Carter demanded.copyright protection17PENANAuJkqUGlXLg

"You're out of luck."copyright protection17PENANACbUQWU8vky

"No, it's not going down like that." Carter started forcing Edison back inside of the house.copyright protection17PENANApVisi8NORi

"I told you I'm done doing your homework-yours and everyone else's."copyright protection17PENANAal2vLXb7VX

"Not acceptable."copyright protection17PENANAnx8io5cxAw

"That's the way it is," Edison said, holding his ground.copyright protection17PENANA50sosLwfzn

"Sit down, and do the work now."copyright protection17PENANAyJIBeuyqBt

"No way."copyright protection17PENANAnZ1whpCuXd

Carter pushed Edison into the sunny kitchen and shoved him into a chair. He threw his backpack on the table.copyright protection17PENANA02dtrGeXWN

"Get to work. I'll wait." He stood back and folded his arms.copyright protection17PENANAlux45MzEcb

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 protection17PENANA7za96szIXw

He folded his arms just like Carter and looked at him with a defiant grin.copyright protection17PENANAVXz8q0OEYK

"I guess I may not see you at graduation, Carter. What a shame that would be."copyright protection17PENANAskfZolLYZX

Carter's face turned red and he clenched his hands.copyright protection17PENANA97xjgDMPmJ

"You little jerk!" He started coming towards Edison.copyright protection17PENANAmhHVq8VfNU

Suddenly, there was a horrific crash outside. The sound of metal grinding against metal.copyright protection17PENANA0fefeDAZBz

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 protection17PENANAXKGv4X9QMv

A man got out of the Explorer and asked if he was okay.copyright protection17PENANAA9Ni4dq0sd

"I think so," Trey said.copyright protection17PENANAUss8IHMiHn

Carter looked at Edison who looked odd. He looked like he was in a trance or something.copyright protection17PENANASE7z9bwi2j

"You had something to do with this, Bates," Carter pointed a finger at him.copyright protection17PENANAODsBVwOlxh

"Me? I was in the house with you, genius."copyright protection17PENANAzrK2AtJnLq

"I'll find out what you're up to. You're probably into satanism or some crap." Carter said. copyright protection17PENANAKE4Sde4Kx6

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 protection17PENANA3lKvWF2L1A

"It's not even close to Satanism."copyright protection17PENANA3A2NCDgl02
