Chapter 14: Ethan
I made Zoey and myself a bowl of Fruit Loops and left the cereal out just in case Ava wnted more stuff to eat. Like she said, it might be the last decent breakfast for a while.
I wanted to review everything so far. Seven very rather important people stolden. Only one's location was known. I n order to help us, apparenlty we've been given powers. Ava was a Dreamer, I was a Swordsman, and Zoey - well Zoey was unknown, but she's got to be something as of importance. She was so vital, I knew that we couldn't do anything of what we were about to do without her.
Then Ava came back, with a bunch of packets of food, Cup of Noodle, and a few canteens. "You okay?" I asked. She seemed startled.
Ava nodded. "Fine. What time are we leaving?" She asked
I shrugged. "I was thinking ten. We should spend the first day there getting a game plan to set up." I saw Ava glance at the clock, and I looked as well - it was around seven now.
"I thought we alreayd had a game plan." Ava said, tossing the box of Fruit Loops in the sack.
"We do only partially. We need to figure out what we do when we get there."
"Go save the Gaurdian. Duh. Then she'll help us save the others and boom we should be able to finish up soon."
I sighed. I hated when Avva got like this. Impulsive. Not listening. At these times usually it was with Mom or Dad. They handled it calmly. I wanted to do the same, but Ava was Ava - it was a lot more difficult than it seemed. "Ava, we need a moredetailedplan, if you haven't noticed. Who'se leading us? we need to actually get a plan of action, not just an outline of -"
"Woah woah woah. What are you talking about, Who's leading? There is no leader. I thought that was another thing that we agreed on. What happened to everythingw e agreed on when we createthis world? Huh? I thought we agreed on a lot of things."
I gripped on the counter, turning my knuckles white. "God dammit Ava, why don't you listen?! We just need a plan of action, why the hell do you try to make it more than that?"
"Stop trying to be like Dad, Ethan. Just shut the heck up."
"I didn't ask for this you know. I just wanted to my own world. I didn't ask for all that crap. I didn't want it. I don't want it. So don't give it to me!" Ava amsacked the table hard, and you could hear some of the glasses in the cabinets shake.
"We thought you knew what youw ere getting into. I knew. Heck, even Zoey knew. Ava, what makes you think you don't know? What makes you think you're the only scared one? Fudge Ava, we're all sacred. We're all scared to death. But together we can save all seven Gaurdians. What's wrong witih you Ava? What are you scared? Why on earth is the most headstrong, prefect, smart, and even seemingly obnoxious Ava scared all the sudden? What changed?"
Ava was crying now. She was bretahing hard. I didn't want to say anything more, I didn't even want to touch her. "Ava. What changed?"
