Journal Entry 18

Dear World,

Matt and Jonas fought at the plaza today. It was awful. I am not sure who was injured the most. They both had bloody lips, cuts and bruises. Last night, we discussed making the fight look as real as possible. The boys took it to the next level, I wasn’t expecting the brutality they threw at each other.

It didn’t take long for a crowd to form. People quickly took sides. A couple of Central Goons watched with interest. The fight ended as Matt pinned Jonas to the pavement. Some words were exchanged that I would rather not repeat. Then Matt released Jonas and stood up. Jonas struggled to his feet. He yelled at his brother that they were no longer brothers. I wanted to cry. It felt so real.

After the show, the crowd dispersed as quickly as it formed. The Central Goons approached Matt. I wasn’t close enough to hear what was said but Matt left with the enemy. He dropped his handkerchief to let us know all was well.

Journal Entry 17

Dear World,

Tony stopped by my room last night. He said he wanted to help with the mission. I think we are on the mend. I don’t think he has forgiven me yet but one day, he will.

Me, Tony, Matt and Jonas went to sneak around the Central Campus and gather info. There was a lot of activity around the school, in spite of it being only 1am. As were were sneaking around we stumbled across unlocked door. It was propped open by a rock. Accidentally or on purpose, I don’t know.

My gut said, “don’t enter” but the guys didn’t agree.

The classrooms were empty. They didn’t look used. Which is really weird. I don’t think there is one place in Bear Country not occupied or being used for something.

Feeling uncomfortable with our ease of entry I suggested we take the info we had gathered about the school and go home. I really didn’t want to get caught.

Our next step is to get someone into Central. A spy.
