The limo was filled with an awkward silence until they pulled up at Eve's house. "Well, we'll see u in the morning," Mellissa zei to Leo, Jake, and Raymonde, who nodded. Kenya, Emma, Eve, and Mellissa grabbed their stuff, waved, and headed inside. Eve's mom and a girl no younger than sixteen with roze hair greeted them at the door. When Eve saw the girl with roze hair, she folded her arms against her chest. "Hello, girls! Come on in. Eve, please introduce your cousin," Her mom zei as they all went to the living room. "Get comfortable and I’ll be in to check on u in 30 minutes, and u should be on your way to sleeping." They rolled out the sleeping bags. "Kirana," Eve nodded in roze hair's direction. "'Lil E. Y'know I hate it when u call me that," Kirana turned towards the others. "The name's Kiki." "And u know I hate it when u call me 'Lil E'" Eve muttered, and Kiki shot her a look of warning. "Why don't we get ready for bed and everything," Kenya jumped in, breaking the tension between the two. "Good idea." Emma zei biting her lower lip.
When they were dressed in their pajamas, they sat in their sleeping bag circle. "Truth of dare anyone?" Kiki suggested with a toothy grin. It looked weird to Eve, sometimes, but if anyone else noticed, they did an awesome job of hiding it. "I'm up for a game of truth of dare," Mellissa smiled, too. "I am a huge dare-devil." "Not as big as me!" Eve protested, also smiling. "I'm game," Emma joined in. "As always. Kenya, u in?" "I don't know..." Kenya sat Indian Style with her hands in her lap. The others pleaded for her to join. "Fine," Kenya gave in. "Just go easy on me! Please!" "Mel, if you're such a daredevil, u go first," Eve zei glaring playfully. "Dare of course, u know me." Mellissa lay down on her stomach. "I dare u to prank call your sister." Eve dared. "You know that will never work! Impossible! She's like, the queen of pranks!" Eve shrugged, getting up. "I know. But before we begin..." She shuffled over to each window and door until each one was sealed perfectly. Eve knew Kiki was confused so Eve gestured toward Mellissa, who was telepathically talking with Jada, and mouthed "Werewolf". Kiki stared at Eve blankly, but with an eyebrow raised. “Eve, can I talk with u in private?” Kiki zei standing, and gritting her teeth. Eve tugged on her pajama top. “Um, sure, I guess.” Eve nodded to her bedroom. They walked inside her bedroom, and Eve closed the door softly. “What the fang were u thinking?” Kiki screeched, but in a mad, small whisper. “What do u mean?” Eve asked, but she sort of had an idea. She thought it’d be better to play dumb for a bit, it could save her little vampire life. “Whisper PLEASE!” Kiki pinched Eve’s arm, leaving a mark for five seconds. “Gosh,” Eve whispered. “But WHAT is it?!” “You brought a werewolf into the house, let alone let her be your friend, that’s what!” Kiki snapped. “I know u know about the werewolf vampire rivalry! Yet u still let her in the house! u still tolerate her!” “Kiki, don’t say that! Not all vampires have to be mean to werewolves and vice versa! Besides, look,” Eve held up her locket. “We’re connected! It’s our item! I see u still don’t have yours.”
“Yet!” Kiki corrected. “Besides, I wouldn’t talk; u haven’t gotten your symbol yet.”
“Symbol?” Eve wasn’t playing dumb this time.
Kiki rolled her eyes. “The symbol that makes it official that u guys are connected. The symbol tonen your monster type.” Kiki explained.
“Anyway, be nice just for tonight.”
“Eve, you’re crazy.” Eve noticed Kiki called her door her real name instead of “Lil E” for once.
“Crazy, maybe. But I get what I want,” Eve played her last card. She pulled the eyes on Kiki. “Promise?”
Kiki seemed in a trance. “Okay. I promise.” Kiki shook her head and went back to normal.
They opened the door, and Kiki thought, what did I just do to myself? She picked up the phone and shoved it at Mellissa’s face, giving her a sarcastic smile. Mellissa picked up the phone and dialed her sister’s cell. Imani picked up. “Mellissa, did u forget something? I can ask mom to drive it over in the morning whatever it is.” Everyone in the room burst into a full fit of laughter and Mellissa just hung up. Eve’s mom burst into the room. “What are u girls doing up so late?” she whispered with a sleeping three jaar old on her hip. “It’s eleven-thirty!” Sheila finished, flicking off the light. “Sorry mom.” Eve zei walking up to her mom. Eve kissed the three jaar old on the cheek. “Sleep tight, Luke. See u in a week.” She walked to her sleeping bag and lay down. Her mom closed the door and once she was out of earshot, the flashlights clicked to life. “Ok, I need advice.” Emma said. The girls nodded. “My grades are falling, and my dad is pushing me really hard. I don’t think I can be pushed any harder! Have any of your dads ever done that?” “I think Eve’s mom is right.” Kenya said, clicking off her flashlight. “She’s right,” Eve whispered, clicking hers off too. “You guys are no fun,” the rest complained, and the room went dark.
Eve waited until she heard heavy breathing to say something to Kenya. “You awake?” Eve asked. She felt like she was talking to nobody. A sniff was Kenya’s reply. “What was your answer?” Eve crawled over to Kenya. Another sniff. “My… My dad’s MIA. He left a week geleden and never zei a word.” Kenya sobbed quietly. “Just saying but…” Eve patted Kenya’s back to soothe her. “You have it good. My dad died when I was eleven. Car crash. At least your dad could be alive.” Kenya sat up and swiped a tear from her face. “Wow. I’m so sorry.” Kenya looked down. “Well, guess I’ll see u in the morning.” Eve crawled back to her sleeping bag and lie down. Eve felt the hair on her arms stand up. Someone was watching her. “The only ones,” a familiar voice said. Well, not said, but it sounded clear as dag in her head. “This group,” the man’s voice was breaking up and meer unclear, and Eve heard a scuffling sound. “Not pinky over there,” meer scuffling. “Save…” scuffles, scuffle. “WORLD!” The voice bellowed, and the scuffling stopped, leaving just the echo in Eve’s head. Save the world… Eve thought, but as soon as she closed her eyes, she was knocked out, into a nice long sleep, despite the dream.
A comet hurdled towards Emma, Kenya, Mellissa and Eve. They all stood at the edge of a cliff, their hands out and blasting rays of power. Combined, it made a huge force field, that Eve hoped was strong enough to stop the comet. The wind blew furiously, almost blowing them back, which would hurl them into a bunch of cacti. Everything blacked out for a while.
Eve bolted upward. Apparently Kenya, Emma, and Mellissa did the same. “Comets and cacti,” they all blurted. “You too?” they all slammed their fists on the floor. “Stop that!” they grumbled in harmony. Kenya got up and checked the time. The others, including Kiki, just groggily rubbed their eyes. “We’ve gotta get going. The ship leaves at 9:00. What time is it Kenya?” Mellissa yawned, crawling to her purple zebra print bag. “7:00.” Kenya answered. Emma, Mellissa, Eve, and Kenya scrambled to get dressed and ready for Mellissa’s parents. Sheila came in with messy hair, in her robe. “Oh, girls, you’re ready! The Jones’ are just turning the corner.” Kiki shifted and pulled the blanket over her face. “See ya,” Eve whispered to her. They quickly gathered their stuff and headed out the door.
“Hello, ladies!” Ms. Jones hopped out of one of the two minivans. “You girls are riding with me. The boys are riding with Mr. Jones. Come on, of we’ll be late!” “This is going to be the best trip EVER!” They exclaimed, climbing into the silver minivan, Imani in the front seat, to head to the one week cruise.
