spy my heart chapter 2: part
I lay in bed the next morning trying to fall back asleep. I had
had another one of those dreams. Those dreams that are so
wonderful that you never want to wake up. This one was of my dad.
I never knew him. I know absolutely nothing about him. I guess it
pains my mom too much to talk about him.
In the dream, we were a family. It was my mom, my dad, a little
boy (who I think was my brother), and I. We were having a family
game night. I think that it was a look at what my life would have
been like if my dad hadn't died. I would have had a brother,
we wouldn't be struggling and most important, I would live at
"Ava, Ava, Ava," Jasey shouted, jumping up and down on
"What!" I shouted.
"Get up! Get up! Get up!" I kicked her off. "Come
on! We're all at the pool."
"No. I'm going to stay right here and sleep."
"Luke is there," she said in a taunting voice.
"And I care why!"
"Because he is totally hot, likes you, and he is totally
HOT!" She went over to my dresser and started rummaging
through my drawers.
"I don't care if he is hot. I don't want a
"Yeah, right," she said as she threw one of my bikinis
at me. "Now get changed. That one looks the best on
Jasey and I walked down to the pool and went over to where Belle
and the guys were. There was a bunch of other people around. As
we got closer, I realized it was because Belle was telling about
her summer. Belle always went on the coolest vacations, and
people always wanted to hear about it. This past summer she had
gone to Hawaii.
We sat down and listen for a while. When she was done, they went
away. Now it was Luke's turn to talk. We wanted to know about
our new friend, however, it didn't seem like he wanted to
talk that much. All he said was that he was from Florida and his
parents weren't happy with the school he was at, so they sent
him here to ACE.
Jasey, Belle, Derek, and Alex then decided to go swimming. I was
still really tried and I figured that if I wore sunglasses, I
could get away with sleeping. For whatever reason, Luke
didn't want to go either. I was starting to get the feeling
that this guy didn't tell anybody anything.
I lay there quietly. I kept feeling like he would start talking
to me, but he didn't. As much as I hate to admit it, he was
good looking. Even more I hate to admit that I wanted him to talk
All of a sudden someone sprayed cold water at me. I opened my
eyes to see Jasey shooting me with a water gun. I jumped up.
"I'm gonna kill you," I said as I chased her.
Someone handed me a water gun and I sprayed her. Everyone at the
pool was starting to join in the game. Luke joined to and he and
I had blast squirting each other. I know you may think this is
flirting, but I not. ***
By the end of the day, most of ACE's students were soaked and
worn out. Jasey, Belle, and I went back to our dorm to shower. We
got dressed in sweats and hoodies. We met the guys out front. We
walked over to the bonfire pit together. Every night a couple of
people gather around the bonfire to hang out and sing songs
together. It's sort of like camp.
After a while Jasey and Belle got tired, so Alex and Derek took
them back to the dorm. I was having too much fun to leave though.
Luke and I were singing our hearts out.
Suddenly, I felt a chill and I shivered a little.
"You cold?" Luke asked.
"A little," I said. "But I'm fine." He
took off his coat and started to put it on my shoulders.
"I'm fine, really."
"No you're not," he insisted and put it around
He was cute as much as I hate to admit it. And sweet
too. Really sweet. As mysterious as he is, I liked him. I'm
not saying I like liked him. Just he was a good
At around eleven, we both started to get kind of tired, so we
walked back. He walked me to my dorm building. I said good night
and started to go inside.
"Ava, wait," Luke said. I turned around. "The end
of summer dance is this Saturday. I don't really know anyone
yet except you, Derek, Alex, Jasey, and Belle. And since
you're the single one, I was hoping you would go
I sighed. "I'm not really looking for a relationship
right now," I confessed to him. "Sorry."
"I'm not asking you out," he replied. "I'm
asking as a friend."
Good. He only wanted to be my friend. “Yeah,
sure. It’ll be fun.”
