Edison was still peering at Nora's scratch.copyright protection7PENANAx7sFriiXMT

"You must have scratched yourself in your sleep."copyright protection7PENANAyPCnrzcLQb

"Are you kidding me? I didn't do this." she dropped her arm.copyright protection7PENANA7w7DtAPVUF

"There's a reasonable explanation for everything."copyright protection7PENANAkrMN7e5pbR

"How can you be so nonchalant when I just said your house is haunted?"copyright protection7PENANAjKHV78vkUl

Jax stared up at both of them but was forgotten for the moment.copyright protection7PENANAw2SEFleuh8

"I don't believe in ghosts and all that jazz, but I believe you think you saw something."copyright protection7PENANAaBzWpHbu6n

"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 protection7PENANAlp73kfbPA5

Jax and Edison followed her downstairs.copyright protection7PENANAb674KMqYhH

"Come on, Nora, it's the middle of the night."copyright protection7PENANA7rjHoIoAcv

She looked hurt and frustrated. "Will you please give me a ride home?"copyright protection7PENANAXyU5BfkN5V

"Sure, but it'd be easier if you stay then we could go to school together."copyright protection7PENANATg10kMNLL5

"No thanks."copyright protection7PENANAsSxMAWuYwH

"Don't be mad at me," Edison said as he watched her put on her jacket and get her purse.copyright protection7PENANAutgoySETFJ

"I'm not. I'm just really tired."copyright protection7PENANAOyZQzkCn6n

They drove to her house in silence.copyright protection7PENANAtyg1lQXQPu

"Do you have a key to get in?" Edison asked as he pulled her into her driveway a few minutes later.copyright protection7PENANAxjYOIxGmqm

"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 protection7PENANA5fV56vqJTw

"Don't worry about it. Hey, Nora -" but she cut him off by saying thanks and closing the door.copyright protection7PENANA7m5nnqelg3

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 protection7PENANAPOnNC5ljsM

Edison quickly finished his English muffin with jelly and tugged on his coat. He put his cell phone in his back pocket. copyright protection7PENANABYnGmK7A5n

As he was picking up his backpack, someone loudly knocked at the door.copyright protection7PENANAEVc2JP749A

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 protection7PENANAQP8SrN1zRS

"Hand over the homework you promised," Carter demanded.copyright protection7PENANAztRX9dHhON

"You're out of luck."copyright protection7PENANAFtJRvsGCxP

"No, it's not going down like that." Carter started forcing Edison back inside of the house.copyright protection7PENANAdoFmh69iG1

"I told you I'm done doing your homework-yours and everyone else's."copyright protection7PENANAbgu3dEhUV5

"Not acceptable."copyright protection7PENANAIAyrs3U8Gs

"That's the way it is," Edison said, holding his ground.copyright protection7PENANAYUQDg7Kqqq

"Sit down, and do the work now."copyright protection7PENANArCHWFUAWPw

"No way."copyright protection7PENANA2x7BZzFUIm

Carter pushed Edison into the sunny kitchen and shoved him into a chair. He threw his backpack on the table.copyright protection7PENANAmGgckxk5YK

"Get to work. I'll wait." He stood back and folded his arms.copyright protection7PENANAwqndm27XZW

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 protection7PENANAt2uBDtajoT

He folded his arms just like Carter and looked at him with a defiant grin.copyright protection7PENANAFKAWWUuhZs

"I guess I may not see you at graduation, Carter. What a shame that would be."copyright protection7PENANA2vTpIfrQdr

Carter's face turned red and he clenched his hands.copyright protection7PENANAMGthi6Ltp9

"You little jerk!" He started coming towards Edison.copyright protection7PENANAm5TW2QRw7Q

Suddenly, there was a horrific crash outside. The sound of metal grinding against metal.copyright protection7PENANAZamSz581Wl

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 protection7PENANAsI2V0k2LNr

A man got out of the Explorer and asked if he was okay.copyright protection7PENANAUaxO6zFX6M

"I think so," Trey said.copyright protection7PENANAO6XbZwh8xd

Carter looked at Edison who looked odd. He looked like he was in a trance or something.copyright protection7PENANAtZWwVWRXHF

"You had something to do with this, Bates," Carter pointed a finger at him.copyright protection7PENANApCPWqWw5TD

"Me? I was in the house with you, genius."copyright protection7PENANASIKPTKmaSU

"I'll find out what you're up to. You're probably into satanism or some crap." Carter said. copyright protection7PENANAnmUjSPgKMX

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 protection7PENANApcAe81aF74

"It's not even close to Satanism."copyright protection7PENANAj0M4QGOcRG
