Max in my head, now out of my head!

IT'S MAXIMUM RIDE!!! At least, how she is in my head. ( I could draw, anyways.)

I'm getting better with people!! And the shading on her is actually really cool, if you could actually see it... Anyhoo, I'll probably draw the rest of the flock eventually. Enjoy!

MR Fanfic (TPPOV) Chapter 2

"For the last time, I'm NOT Max! My name is Jasmine!" She said, glaring at the black haired boy driving the car. He swerved around a pick-up truck and everyone else in the car flinched. "Do you even have a driver's license?" She asked, sounding extremely annoyed.

"No, and you know that, MAX." The boy said, concentrating very hard on his driving. Jasmine huffed and rolled her eyes. Suddenly, she got an idea.

"Okay, let's pretend I am this 'Max' person, and let's also pretend that I, Max, have amnesia. WHO ARE ALL YOU PEOPLE?!?" She'd been trying to get them to tell her what was going on, but none of them would tell her anything useful. The black haired boy sighed as Jasmine turned to look at the other kids in the back. The only thing she knew was that she had been grabbed by these kids while she was in the bookstore, told they had to leave, and yanked out into the hall. When they got to one of the crossing-ways for all of the halls, they came upon this group of weird robot things, one of which she had to fight. She'd never been in a fight in her life, and she was pretty sure they had broken something. Her arm hurt like crazy, and she had told that to the black haired kid, but he merely grabbed her other arm and dragged her down the hall, to this car, and told her to sit.

Now, she wanted answers. The little brown girl in the back was the first to speak up. "Okay, well, you're Maximum Ride, the leader of our Flock. He's Fang," she continued, pointing to the black haired kid. "He's your boyfriend. I guess, kinda. You guys kiss and stuff, but not very often."

"Good..." Jasmine said, getting really grossed out. Fang looked at her in disbelief.

"Anyhow, you guys had a fight the other day, which we're assuming is why you're all 'not Max'. I'm Nudge, I talk lots, and I have this cool power where I can make metal come to me. Wanna see?" She asked, but didn't wait for an answer before holding up her hand and making the zipper on Jasmine's hoodie fly towards her.

"Hey!" Jasmine said, grabbing the zipper. Nudge seemed to blush a bit.

"I'm Iggy, your resident blind pyromaniac. I can also feel colors." Iggy smiled and waved in Jasmine's general direction.

"I'm the Gassman! Or Gazzy, for short. I'm Iggy's right hand man with explosives, and my other power is-" Gazzy stopped short as Fang interrupted him.

"If she really does have amnesia, she probably DOESN'T want to remember that incident." He said, putting on the breaks way too fast. Everyone in the van lurched forward.

"I'm Angel, and we're not just weird kids. And we didn't kidnap you. You're supposed to be with us." Jasmine stared at the little blond girl in surprise. "I can read minds, breathe under water - just like you and Fang - and I can change into different things, sorta." Angel finished. She pet the little black dog on her lap.

"I'm Total, you're talking bird-dog." The dog said sleepily. Jasmine stared at them all, her mouth gaping open.

"Whoa, whoa, wait," Jasmine said, holding up her hands. "You guys are the Flock, from the Maximum Ride books..." Everyone else nodded. "And you think I'm Max...but I'm not..." She continued, looking a little dazed.

"You are too, Max." Angel said, her brow creasing.

"No, I'm not. I don't have any wings or anything." Jasmine said, sounding desperate.

"Iggy." Fang said in a tone that meant something, but only to Iggy. Iggy leaned forward and began running his fingers along Jasmine's face.

"Uh oh..." Iggy said quietly.

"What?" Fang snapped.

"This isn't Max." Everyone stared at Iggy in disbelief. "Max has little scars and scratches on her face, and a swollen lip. This girl doesn't have that..."

"Told you so." Jasmine said. Fang growled then punched the horn on the steering wheel.

We're at war (preachy post)

With the Devil. This morning in Sunday school, we were talking about how the Devil will give us some big evil to focus on, while he sneaks up from the side and attacks us, knocking us off guard. We also talked about how the Devil masquerades as different people to lead us astray. He'll even disguise himself as a pastor or some religious leader to lead people astray! So, we have to be careful. It's easier for the Devil to sell us something when there's truth intertwined in it, then just to tell us a story that's all lies. If there's truth in it, we're more likely to believe it. So be careful guys, and be sure you know what you believe in is true.

MR Fanfic (MPOV) Chapter one

Okay, I've decided to write a Maximum Ride fanfiction, because I'm in the Max Ride mood. :P So, it'll just be titled "MR" with either "MPOV" (Max's point of view) or "TPPOV" (Third-person point of view) written next to MR. So there ya go. (And, you know, chapter break ups and stuff...) So here it is, CHAPTER ONE!!!

We were in a mall. Yes, a mall. What can I say? They had a food court and books and clothes, and we actually had some cash to spend. (Stolen cash, but cash no less.) We had already eaten, and were now wandering around, looking at stuff, and all the people looking at us. We were a group of grungy looking kids, sucking down slurpies and soda, and walking a teeny black dog who was trying very hard not to start shouting at all the people staring at us. We were a sight to behold. Suddenly, Nudge stopped dead in her tracks and gasped. "What?" I asked, going full alert.

"Look. At. The. SHOES!" Nudge cried, starting to hyperventilate. I rolled my eyes and sighed as Nudge dashed forward to look at the boots she had spied.

"Can we go look too, Max?" Angel asked, referring to herself and Total. I shrugged and nodded, and they both ran after Nudge. I glanced over at Gazzy and saw him whispering to Iggy.

"Max, can we please, please, please, pleeeeaaase go over to the toy store!" Gazzy begged.

"Nuh-uh! I wanna go to the thech store!" Iggy said.

"Toys first, tech later." I said, and the two ran off.

"You really think that's a good idea?" Fang asked quietly. I smiled.

"We're in a mall, Fang. What can go wrong in a mall?" I asked sarcastically, smiling at him. I turned and began walking towards the bookstore. I wanted to see how many of our books they had in stock, see if they needed more. Nothing boosts your spirits more than seeing all of your books sold out. I had just started to look at how many "Final Warning"'s they had when this lady walked up to me and smiled. She had a stroller.

"You ready to go, honey?" She asked innocently.

"Huh?" I asked, totally taken off guard by her. She wasn't my mother, or anyone I recognized, but she was calling me "honey" ...should I be suspicious?

"Are you ready to keep walking? Remember, we need to get you some new jeans and a skirt for Easter." She continued, like I was her daughter.

"Listen, uh, I don't think that I'm who you think I am..." I said slowly, not sure how to break this to her. I mean, what if she was some crazy lady who just randomly claimed grungy looking kids as her own? Her brow creased for a moment, then cleared and she smiled.

"Come on, I know you wanna stay with the books, but we have to go." She said, more serious now.

"But I'm not who you think I am." I said, backing away. She stared at me and opened her mouth to say something when suddenly, I heard an explosion. "Oh no" does not even start to describe what I thought.

I dashed out of the bookstore and looked first towards the toy store and tech store, hoping that the explosion was only Gazzy and Iggy being stupid. I didn't see either of them. The clothes store, bookstore, tech and toy stores were all in the same general area, but I didn't see any or my Flock. I was starting to panic. The lady was standing next to me and she grabbed my sleeve.

"Come on, we're leaving." She said firmly, looking a little freaked out.

"I have to go find my Flock." I said, pulling my arm away from her. I dashed off down the hall towards the entrance we had entered through, and I heard the lady running behind me. I didn't know what to think of her. I mean, she thought I was her kid! That made me wonder where her real daughter was. But before I was able to process that thought, a whole new flood of thoughts over took it as I skidded to a halt in front of a destroyed army of MGeeks.

Okay, "Army" was a stretch, but it was a lot of scattered robot pieces. The lady grabbed my arm then turned me around to face her. "Look," I began, "go back to the bookstore and look for your daughter, 'cause I ain't her." I said.

"I walked all around the bookstore before I came and found you! So therefore, I know that you are here!" She exclaimed, seeming to get angry at me. I sighed as I realized I was going to have to take drastic action to make this woman believe me. So, I whipped out my wings, right there in the mall in front of all those people. I heard gasps, and the lady standing in front of me went pale.

"You're..." She said quietly.

"Maximum Ride." I supplied quickly. "Now, if you'll excuse me-" I turned to start walking away.

"Wait, if you're not my daughter, where is she?" The woman asked, her voice breaking near the end of her sentence. I looked back at her, being only a arm length away.

"Would she run away?" I asked, wanting to get this over with quickly. The woman shook her head "no" I sighed. "Then either my Flock mistook her for me, or the bad guys did." Her face was drained of all color after I said that. "I have to go." I said, I went to pull my arm away from her when she tightened her grip.

"Max-" Her voice broke and she swallowed hard. I looked into her eyes and saw tears forming. "Please, bring my daughter back safely." It sounded like she was going to cry, and I saw real worry in her eyes. It made me think of my mom, and how worried she was about me all the time.

"I will. I promise." I said, my own voice weak. I hate mushy emotions more than any other emotions, but before I knew it, I was giving this stranger a hug, whispering a promise in her ear. "I promise I'll bring her back in one piece." I felt the woman's tears on my shoulder, her body shaking. I pulled away from her then dashed down the hall, hoping my Flock hadn't gotten too far without me.

Chapter 6, continued

Professor Longbottom looked down at what had bumped into him, and Andrea and Albus glanced up. "Well, well, well. Who do we have wandering around in a forbidden corridor at this time of night?" Professor Longbottom asked, patting Albus's head, even though he couldn't see it. "Too short to be James...Oh, don't tell me..." Professor Longbottom groaned and lifted up the invisibility cloak. He sighed as he saw Albus and Andrea both standing there. Albus smiled up at him sheepishly, while Andrea hid her face in her hands. "What are you two doing?" Professor Longbottom asked, disappointment lingering in his voice.

"I knew we were going to get caught. I TOLD you so!" Andrea said, glaring at Albus. Her glare was so hard it almost scared him.

"I just wanted to come down and...I...I don't know..." Albus finally just let his sentence dangle while Andrea began mumbling things that were impossible to understand.

"Do you two realize you were breaking at least two rules?" Professor Longbottom asked, kneeling down to be at nearly eye level with Albus.

"Yes, sir. But, it's all my fault, really-" Albus began, but Andrea cut him off.

"Oh, please. It's not all your fault. Sure, you were stupid enough to get the idea, but I was stupid enough to go along with it! I mean, where's my common sense?!? It's gone! Gone I tell you!" Andrea was practically screaming at Albus, throwing her hands up in the air. She sighed and leaned against the wall, letting her back slide against it until she was sitting on the floor.

"I'm sorry, Professor." She said quietly. Albus nodded.

"Me too." He chimed in. Professor Longbottom sighed.

"Well, it doesn't matter how sorry you are. You still broke the rules, and I still have to tell Professor McGonagal." Both of the children looked up at Professor Longbottom with sad eyes. "After your classes, I'll take you both up to her office to talk with her, and she'll decide your punishment." The children nodded, then began shuffling back to their room with Professor Longbottom behind them.

The next day and breakfast, Samantha just shook her head after hearing the story of Andrea and Albus's midnight walk. "I can't believe you guys did that!" She said. James smiled.

"I can!" He reached over Samantha to give Albus a high-five. Albus didn't give him one.

"I feel really bad..." He said, instead. James rolled his eyes.

"Don't worry, that'll go a few years." James laughed and Samantha biffed him. Her hair was pink again, and pulled back in a pony tail. Holly giggled as James rubbed his arm, and Derek and Peter just sat there, staring at Andrea and Albus.

Suddenly, the mail owls came through and began dropping letters and packages on the tables. Samantha's eagle came right to their table and circled overhead before dropping a letter into Samantha's eggs. Samantha looked up and shook her head. Albus's head jerked up as he heard the eagle screech. He glanced over at Samantha and stared at her.

"Wow, you're eagle sure can talk." He remarked. James had his hands over his ears as he glared at Samantha.

"Oh, that wasn't the eagle..." James said resentfully. Samantha beamed.

"You did that?" Peter asked in disbelief. Samantha nodded proudly. "You know how to speak eagle?!?" He asked, still not believing it.

"Yep. And lots of other animals, too." Samantha said matter-of-factly.

"How?" Derek asked.

"Hello, sleep problem!" Samantha replied in a "duh" tone. Derek nodded, understanding. Samantha picked up her letter and wiped the egg off it. She was about to read it when Peter looked at his watch and gasped.

"We're gonna be late! Come on!" He grabbed Holly by the arm and yanked her up then dashed out of the room, still holding her arm. Holly gave a short scream as they ran. Derek, Albus and Andrea all jumped up while James and Samantha got up a bit slower. They all dashed off to their separate classes.

Is the name of the newest Maximum Ride book. WHICH WE HAVE!! WHOO!!!! I haven't finished it yet, though. :( But I'm hoping to tonight. Okay, here's how we saw it, because I totally didn't even realize the book was out:

My mom, me, and my two brothers were walking through the store when I glanced over at the book stand thing and saw this book with MAX written on it in all caps. I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw that James Patterson's name was on the book too. The first thought going through my head was "Whaaaat?" the second was "Is that the next MR book, or another book JP has written like it?" My third thought was, "GET OVER THERE NOW AND CHECK IT OUT!!" These thoughts all kinda overlapped each other, so it didn't take long to think them all. Long enough for my brother to see I had stopped, though.

"What?" He asked, looking where my gaze was fixed. I told mom to stop then dashed over, my brother following. I grabbed one of the MAX books then read the cover, seeing "A Maximum Ride Novel" written under the enormous title. "Is it another Maximum Ride book?" My brother asked, not quite believing his eyes.

"That's what it says." I replied, and before you could have stopped me, I opened the book and started reading.

Well, there you have it. Mini story for the day. WHOO MAXIMUM RIDE RULES!1!1!1!!

Wednesday, March 18, 2009


Okay, I've been meaning to post the following, but haven't been able to. So here it is, what me and my family did last week. (Starting with the Saturday before last)


We drove up to visit some of our relatives, we mainly wanted to see Grandma because, well, we hadn't in forever. On a good day, the drive is three hours. We got up there and stayed the night with my Uncle Pete and Aunt Betty. (I have some cool pictures of stuff in their house.) We all had fun, and my baby brother enjoyed playing on their "rocking plane" and playing with all of their toys. After a while, we went to bed. Bigger/younger brother (the brother that's not that baby...the baby's not really a baby any more, he's three, but for clarity the three year old with be called "baby brother" and the other one will be called "other brother" :P)...where were we before the rabbit trail? Oh, right, "Other brother" and I slept on inflatable sleeping bags. They were nifty. His was camo, I think, and mine had really bright flowers on it.


We had monkey bread for breakfast, went to a church up there, I went to junior church with baby brother, (which wasn't half bad, actually...) then we went to visit Grandma. We had lunch at her house, and I ate so much that I should have been writhing in pain the rest of the day, but I only got a small stomach ache. (Remember that, okay?) For the rest of the day, we watched Harry Potter. (Insert smilie here) I know you're thinking "What? I thought you went to spend time with your Grandma!" And we did. Thing with that side of the family is, though, that when you get together, you just kinda...chill. Watch TV, talk, eat, that kinda stuff. Nothin' really spiffy. Besides, she was watching it with us. :P (She didn't get it at all...and I had to explain lots to dad because he hasn't read the books. Tisk tisk...) Anyhoo, we watched part of the second one, and most of the third one...I think... (Can't totally remember, though...) Then, when we were getting hungry-ish, we took Grandma to Big Boy. (Oh, while we were there, my Aunt Jean and cousin Micheal came over for a little, and we saw Uncle Caz.) After dinner, we started going home around...eight or nine...AND HEADED STRAIGHT INTO A BLIZZARD!!! O_O We drove for like, five hours!!!! We were all exhausted when we got home...


Monday was a day of rest. Me and my bros and dad slept in, no school. Mom did have to go to work, though. :( We went to choir that evening, and it was fun. :) (I ACTUALLY HAVE BUDDIES THERE, NOW! WHOO!!)


Dentist. bleeeeech...


We packed to go to the Great Wolf Lodge! (We have one in our area, it rocks.) After dad got home, we went to have fun! We played in the water park, played Magi Quest, had a blast!!!


Played more at GWL, then came home laaaaaaaate at night. We got ice cream before we went home. :)


Around seven o'clock ish, some of our friends came over. We had been cleaning the house up when we were home during the week, and we had been cleaning and stuff before they came that day, too. When they FINALLY got here, they stayed until...three a.m., ish? Oh yeah, it was a blast. Tacos, card games, talking, laughing, snacks...pure awesomeness. (We also watched Glenn Beck before they came, and let me tell you, he'll be getting a post pretty soon. Go Beck!)


After we all woke from our comas, we went back to the Great Wolf Lodge. :D I'm pretty sure my baby brother is starting to think of it as a second home after this week. :P Lemme tell ya, I could live at a GWL...


We went to church and relaxed. Busy week. I love it when dad has vacation time. :)


Choir, again. Not as fun as the week before, but not torture. :P


Once again, we went to the Great Wolf Lodge! (We had time left on our wands, little did we know our bands would be good too! But we didn't bring swim stuff... *sigh*) Came home when we were done playing and watched American Idol. GO DANNY GOKE!!! My fave quote from American Idol was "It left me confused...yet, happy!" I almost fell off my chair I laughed so hard when I heard that.


Real life...but it's pretty good. :)

Okay, now you're all caught up on my life...I guess. We had fun, and I hope you had fun too. :D

For Chris

These pictures are both of the same guy, that Chris wanted me to draw. The only difference in them is that in the first one, the scar on his face is colored. In the second it isn't. (The order is backwards...odd...) (BTW, Chris is one of my Teen Homeschool Hang buddies.) Well, Enjoy! :D

"It is not our abilities that define us, but the choices we make." Albus Dumbledore.

That quote is actually pretty cool. I mean, lots of people can write, but what defines me is WHAT I write. Lots of people can draw, but what I draw is what defines me. Those are choices I make. Also, how I decide to spend my money and time. What I choose to post even defines me! I mean, how many people post stuff about Alvin and the Chipmunks, pictures they've drawn, random stuff, an HP fanfic, and then even some serious stuff? I just think that that quote is really cool. Wait, Dumbledore is really cool, so of course what he says is going to be cool, right? :P UNLESS IT'S SOMEONE PRETENDING TO BE DUMBLEDORE!! *gasp* Okay, that was seriously off topic... Anyhoo, what you choose, who you choose to hang out with, and what you choose to do with your talents and time defines you. Remember that, because it is important.

Chapter 6, continued

"We are going to get in SO much trouble!" Andrea hissed as she and Albus walked down another corridor.

"Not if you don't blow our cover by talking!" Albus replied in a whisper. Just then, both of them gasped. They heard footsteps walking towards them from behind. They both silently turned around and saw Samantha skipping up the hallway. She passed by them then stopped dead in her tracks. She turned around slowly and seemed to stare right at Albus and Andrea, even though they were invisible. Samantha took a step forward and Albus and Andrea took a silent step back. She reached her hand out towards Albus's head, and Albus and Andrea leaned back slowly. Suddenly, Peeves flew by, messing up Samantha's hair as he went. Samantha jumped and frowned at Peeves.

"You coming or what?" Peeves asked as he flew around Samantha's head.

"Yeah, I'm coming." Samantha replied. She took one last look at Albus and Andrea then ran after Peeves. Albus and Andrea both let out a sigh, a breath they didn't realize they'd been holding in.

"That was WAY too close..." Andrea said, glaring at Albus. Albus smiled sheepishly and continued walking. The turned down corridor after corridor, until finally Andrea stopped.

"Where are we?!?" She asked, throwing the cloak off. Albus stared at her with his mouth open.

"Ssshhh! Someone will hear you!" He hissed, picking up the cloak.

"You know what, Albus, I don't care! We're lost in the school! How are we going to get back to the common room?!?" Andrea was almost yelling, and Albus threw the cloak back overtop of them.

"We'll find our way back, just chill out, all right?" Albus lead them down another path and through a doorway.

There was nothing in the new room except an old mirror. Albus walked up to it while Andrea stayed behind, examining something on the wall. "What is this...?" Albus asked.

"It's a special mirror with a hard-to-pronounce name that shows you only what you want to see." Andrea replied, not turning to look at Albus. He looked in the mirror and smiled. He was just like his dad. He had trophies, was the Griffindor seeker, and had all his friends near him.

"What do you see?" Albus asked Andrea. She sighed and walked over to the mirror. She looked in and her eyes smiled, even though the rest of her face didn't.

"Me and all my friends." She replied shortly. "Now let's go." She grabbed the cloak and she and Albus put it on. The walked out the door, only to bump into someone else.

More drawings!

This was another request from my buddy, Sadie. I go to this other website called "Teen Homeschool Hang" or "THH" for short, and there's this game called the "THH President Game" Where you can nominate people to be the "President" for a month. Last month I tied for first, then came in second on the tie-breaker. This month, I nominated Sadie, and she asked me to be her Vice President and asked Thomas (The boy in the pic) to be her Secretary of State. Then, Sadie asked me to draw a picture of us in a "Gangsta" pose, as she called it. And in suites and fedora hats. First time at the hats! Whoo! :P And that's our team name at the bottom. :)
And this is the "Other - newbies" Picture that goes with the two Sonic characters ones. Next one will be an "Other - Oldies" picture. :P

Enjoy, all you peeps who read my blog! :D

Chapter 6 of HP

"Andrea, are you getting a cold?" Samantha asked as the entire group of James, Andrea, Albus, Peter, Holly, Derek and Samantha sat around the fire in the common room.

"No...why?" Andrea asked slowly. Samantha shrugged.

"You just seem like you're not feeling very good." She replied casually. Andrea fidgeted in her seat, but only Samantha seemed to notice. Just then, Professor Longbottom walked over to their chairs.

"Evening all! What's up with you lot?" He asked, leaning on the back of Samantha's puffy chair.

"The ceiling." Samantha replied, gazing into the fire. "Hey, Professor Longbottom, can I talk to you...privately?" Samantha asked, looking up at him. He looked a little taken aback, but agreed to it with a nod of his head. The two walked over to a corner of the common room and began to talk.

"Well, what do you think is up with that?" James asked as they all watched the two of them talking.

"Don't know..." Peter replied. "It is a bit curious, though..." Albus shrugged and turned back to face the fire.

"So, how was Potions today?" James asked, a smile dancing on his face. Albus glared at him, hard. James chuckled and shook his head. "Don't worry about it, little brother. Accidents happen all the time." James reassured Albus.

"Yeah, it's just that most of them happen to me..." Albus mumbled.

"Hey! Not true! I was the one who got dragged all over the lawn by a skrewt! Remember?" Peter said. Holly giggled and Derek smirked. Albus rolled his eyes and sighed.

"James, do you know where Samantha goes at night?" Derek asked. James shrugged.

"I don't know what she does, exactly. I think she just wanders around, finds people to talk to, hangs out with ghosts...dies her hair different colors, sometimes. Her favorite color? Bubblegum pink." James finished with a smile and Percy, who had been walking by them stopped dead in his tracks.

"You know the specific shade or pink she dies her hair?" Percy asked, leaning over James' chair. James nodded. Percy shrugged then turned to look at Professor Longbottom and Samantha.

"What are they talking about?" Percy asked to no one in particular.

"Probably about room arrangement." James said off-handedly.

"Hm..." Percy watched the two of them talk for another moment then continued walking.

"Well, I think it's time I go to bed." Peter said, standing up.

"It's not that late yet." Derek remarked.

"No, but I like to get up early. Besides, I always hear this annoying tapping noise above my bed at some point in the night, and if I can get sleep before the tapping starts, I'm all for it." Peter explained, then went up stairs.

"Well...I guess that's a smart idea...I suppose I'll head up too, then." Derek said. He stood up and looked over at Holly, who had fallen asleep in her chair. He nudged her and she woke up with a start.

"Huh? Wha?" Holly asked, sitting up.

"Time for bed, Holly..." Derek said, helping her up. She stood up and practically sleep-walked all the way up the stairs and to her room. Derek sighed and shook his head.

"Well, goodnight you guys." He said, then went up stairs. Albus and Andrea sat in silence for a while, watching the fire.

"Hey," Albus said after most of the people had gone up to their rooms. "Want to see something cool?" He concluded in a whisper. Andrea raised an eyebrow at him. "I'll be right back." Albus said, then ran up stairs. He dashed into his room, made sure everyone was asleep, then grabbed his invisibility cloak out of his bag. He ran back down the stairs after tucking it under his robe.

"See, look!" Albus showed Andrea the cloak and her eyes grew wide.

"Albus, you can't let anyone see this!" She hissed, grabbing the cloak and shoving it under her robe.

"There's no one down here." Albus whispered. Andrea sighed.

"There are still a couple people down here!" She hissed at him again. Albus glanced over his shoulder at the sleeping fourth years.

"They're asleep!" Albus said, grabbing the cloak from Andrea. "Besides, once we put it on, they won't be able to see us." Albus smiled and Andrea groaned.

"No, Albus." She said firmly.

"Fine, you stay here like a sour puss. I'll go out and explore by myself." Albus said, putting the cloak on.

"No! You could get in serious trouble!" Andrea said, trying to keep her voice down. Albus lifted the cloak up for Andrea to see his smiling face.

"Then why don't you come to make sure I don't get in trouble?" He offered, holding out part of the cloak for her to crawl under. Andrea groaned again then got underneath the cloak.

"I hope you know I'm doing this against my better judgement." She said, glaring at Albus.

"Don't worry. Besides, what's the worst that could happen?" Albus said, then the two walked out the door to a world of terrible possibilities...
