5.3 – Eavesdropping

The next morning was rough. I made it my mission to ignore Tom as much as possible and try my best to eavesdrop on his conversations to figure out what he was hiding. For that, I recruited the help of the most perceptive person I knew. My cousin Misfortune.

She glanced at me, “You sure about this?”

“Yes, I’m sure! I’m positive he’s hiding something! I just want to know what!” I groaned.

She nodded, “Alright. I’ll try to see what’s up.”

“Thank you,” I smiled at her.

She nodded, “You’re welcome. You owe me.”

“Owe you what?” I glanced at her.

She grinned, “You owe me, a date with Will.”

“Alright, I’ll try,” I sighed.

She smiled happily, “Thank you!”


She came back a few hours later, humming.

I looked at her, “Well?”

She giggled, “Well… I won’t say anything.”

“What? Why not?!” I groaned.

She hummed, “For a good reason. He’ll tell you when he wants to.”

“Rude.” I huffed, “Then I’m not owing you a date with Will.”

She pouted, “Not fair!”

“Yes, it is! You won’t tell me, so no date with Will,” I grinned.

She huffed, “Whatever. I can get a date with him on my own.”

“Nope. No way that’s happening on my watch,” Bill walked over to us, looking annoyed.

She groaned, “Please? I won’t be mean to him!”

“That’s not what I’m afraid of.”
