Edison was still peering at Nora's scratch.copyright protection26PENANAMf5IayOSlt

"You must have scratched yourself in your sleep."copyright protection26PENANAbzVS6YgMUc

"Are you kidding me? I didn't do this." she dropped her arm.copyright protection26PENANAU52Hrn28UH

"There's a reasonable explanation for everything."copyright protection26PENANAtGXyo86d0s

"How can you be so nonchalant when I just said your house is haunted?"copyright protection26PENANAHc2D58ClVw

Jax stared up at both of them but was forgotten for the moment.copyright protection26PENANAyPCBw3YzcS

"I don't believe in ghosts and all that jazz, but I believe you think you saw something."copyright protection26PENANAhFzeeYnlbn

"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 protection26PENANANTAPxFY91T

Jax and Edison followed her downstairs.copyright protection26PENANAGzJibfm9Py

"Come on, Nora, it's the middle of the night."copyright protection26PENANA26eBltzIOL

She looked hurt and frustrated. "Will you please give me a ride home?"copyright protection26PENANA6CEGrcmqlo

"Sure, but it'd be easier if you stay then we could go to school together."copyright protection26PENANAj2Y2k9iHi7

"No thanks."copyright protection26PENANAfleuWAXviM

"Don't be mad at me," Edison said as he watched her put on her jacket and get her purse.copyright protection26PENANAhpoW5Q8sgt

"I'm not. I'm just really tired."copyright protection26PENANAQAwODQXVxg

They drove to her house in silence.copyright protection26PENANA3NBiiySf4b

"Do you have a key to get in?" Edison asked as he pulled her into her driveway a few minutes later.copyright protection26PENANA2lArhGhq8y

"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 protection26PENANAUZ8qOMgMIO

"Don't worry about it. Hey, Nora -" but she cut him off by saying thanks and closing the door.copyright protection26PENANA2MCE4UdXah

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 protection26PENANA8cDIDVoVlx

Edison quickly finished his English muffin with jelly and tugged on his coat. He put his cell phone in his back pocket. copyright protection26PENANAL9TnOYh1Vr

As he was picking up his backpack, someone loudly knocked at the door.copyright protection26PENANAj4EXMiSbdd

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 protection26PENANAIGtfj8zI5G

"Hand over the homework you promised," Carter demanded.copyright protection26PENANAPQQJdEHvGD

"You're out of luck."copyright protection26PENANAW0HBXuTPF6

"No, it's not going down like that." Carter started forcing Edison back inside of the house.copyright protection26PENANA3oNwD7FdPK

"I told you I'm done doing your homework-yours and everyone else's."copyright protection26PENANATFAKoNp6i5

"Not acceptable."copyright protection26PENANAJf6rQ3VKTA

"That's the way it is," Edison said, holding his ground.copyright protection26PENANARWYFtCM8PC

"Sit down, and do the work now."copyright protection26PENANASJistGgSNz

"No way."copyright protection26PENANAYxP4YG8Tq1

Carter pushed Edison into the sunny kitchen and shoved him into a chair. He threw his backpack on the table.copyright protection26PENANAuhYtXs5JAU

"Get to work. I'll wait." He stood back and folded his arms.copyright protection26PENANAmtDEW7lcZ8

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 protection26PENANAMXFB2EhayI

He folded his arms just like Carter and looked at him with a defiant grin.copyright protection26PENANAc3ZbwXDBGe

"I guess I may not see you at graduation, Carter. What a shame that would be."copyright protection26PENANAw2HaHEh2Qh

Carter's face turned red and he clenched his hands.copyright protection26PENANAaDeQehvws3

"You little jerk!" He started coming towards Edison.copyright protection26PENANAeF6eRDbufS

Suddenly, there was a horrific crash outside. The sound of metal grinding against metal.copyright protection26PENANAJLVrVC5dEW

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 protection26PENANAuPzJGO0bkt

A man got out of the Explorer and asked if he was okay.copyright protection26PENANAfz8mN0ZZve

"I think so," Trey said.copyright protection26PENANARe0MFWpL93

Carter looked at Edison who looked odd. He looked like he was in a trance or something.copyright protection26PENANAHDTgnz5oLq

"You had something to do with this, Bates," Carter pointed a finger at him.copyright protection26PENANAR1Z0nN0mNv

"Me? I was in the house with you, genius."copyright protection26PENANABEKBrpxQbG

"I'll find out what you're up to. You're probably into satanism or some crap." Carter said. copyright protection26PENANAUSkO9Hoe5a

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 protection26PENANAEXbEYysYUf

"It's not even close to Satanism."copyright protection26PENANAuvTe7lEEcP
