Jake: What just happened?

"Mr. Porlo, please head to the Head Master's office." a voice said over the intercom.

My eyes grew wide. I glanced over at Jasmine, who was also wide eyed. "She found out?"

I waited. I shook my head. "No. If she knew she'd ask you to come as well."

"See you later." she said with a smile. She kissed me quickly on the cheek and then walked away in a hurry.

I really didn't want to go to the office. But I knew I had to.

I headed down the hallway as fast as I could, gently pushing aside people I passed.

I opened the door to the office and slipped in.

"Hello Mr. Porlo." the Head Master said in that disgustingly happy tone.

"Sup." I said, not willing to say anything else.

She...well...he....well...I'll just call it an it. It looked over at me with that hideous smile and said, "Mr. Porlo, I'm here to talk to you about your past."

This can't be good. "Okay."

"You murdered a boy, correct?"

I tried not to show my frown, but to no avail. "Yes."

It chuckled for a split second and then continued, "Well, have you told Jasmine that yet?"

My heart dropped into my stomach. I said nothing.

"So...my sources were correct." it said with an evil smile.

I stood up and looked it straight in the eye. "So what now?"

"Well, I have two choices. One would be to send you or Jasmine to a different school, so you'll never see each other again... two would be to let you stay together. On the condition that you do not kiss in public."

I raised an eyebrow. "You'll let us stay together? Why? What do you get out of this?"

"It'll all become clear soon. But for now, get out."

I walked out the door and it slammed behind me.

Uhh...what just happened?

The End
