"Are you sure that we should run away to go on a quest?" Callum asked me when I went into his room, later that day.
"Yes!" I said eagerally.
"But you might get hurt." he told me.
"I am strong. And plus, you and Jenna will be there looking after me." I said.
He smiled at me, but it was worried. "How do we do it?" He asked me.
"I have got it all planned out." I explained." Tommorow, is own clothes day. We take all that we need. Water bottles, food. We wear extra clothing. We take anything that we will need."
"But they will check our bags." He reminded me.
"Use an excuse." I said. "Class party, Pe lesson." He came over to me. "You forgot something." He smirked.
"What?" I asked.
"It is very obvious." He added.
"What?!" I demanded.
"It grows from trees, and has the queen on it? Money?!" I laughed. He went under his bed, picking up a box. He then opened it. "It is one grand. Look after it, for tommorow. They will check for money on me, but you could put it in your shirt pocket." he said.
"This is your savings." I said shocked. "You keep it. I have got one hundred saved up." I said.
"Take it!" He shoved it in my hand and I laughed. I hugged him. "You are so nice and caring... When you first came, you were moody, and quiet. You were so mean... but I guess that my first impression was wrong." I said. We went to find Jenna in her room.
