Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost you can always be found... -Home by Phillip Phillips
Morgan was in band. They had to do some audition thing. It was optional but Morgan really wanted to do it. It was a chance to get away from school, and travel the world in the process. A world tour so the teacher called it. She took a deep breath before she started to play for the judges.
Peyton dreaded it but she finally bumped into Chase on their way to lunch. Literally. "Ow." She muttered. "Watch where you are going idiot." She didn't look up but Chase sure as heck looked down. Then he figured out who it was and relaxed.
"Well idiots are idiots," he inquired, "some are smarter than others my dear, but yes, idiots are idiots." Peyton recognized the voice right away.
"Ah go to hell."
"I would but Hell seems to be feeling the heat right now." Peyton just ignored him and went to her table. Chase sat down. But he sat down right next to her.
"What do you want?" She snapped.
"Erm…" He trailed off. "The truth is…" He told Peyton about what happened and about how he lost the black book but surprisingly Peyton really didn't react to it. He guessed she was probably in shock.
"Well," she said, "you're going to have to find it." Oh, he thought, nevermind.
"You lost it. You find it." Peyton stated. "And until you find it I'm going give you a load a crap. You have until the end of the month dumbass." The bell rang right after she finished her sentence and she stormed off.
Turns out though he didn't need the month. Peyton found the book. Only she couldn't get it. It was in Morgan's back pocket. She was walking out of the band room with a madman smile on her face and she couldn't stop shaking in joy. Peyton cocked her head and that was when she saw the poster about the band tour. Then she noticed the slip of paper in Morgan's hand and everything clicked into place. She gaped at the white wall covered in plaques of achievements. She continued to do so for a very long time.
