    Gathering Storms

    Gathering Storms

    PART FIVE:
    "You want me to drive you to the movies, AGAIN?!"
    I sighed, feeling more frusterated than ever. Val sat across from me, looking appalled. I shot him a look, then said in an exasperated voice, "Look, you AGREED to take us to the movies on Tuesday, but Jenna couldn't go then. It's Friday, you don't have to go to work, none of your friends are available, and nothing's wrong with your car."
    "But what do I get out of this?" Val shot back, looking me right in the eye.
    "I'll buy you a movie ticket," I said after a while.
    "What's playing today?" my brother asked after pausing to think it over, running his fingers through his untidy hair ad he spoke. I sighed again, then answered, "Jenna and I are going to see Enders, but if your aren't intrested in that, I think Golden Fire, My Death at Noon, Survival, and Bloody Knives are playing too."
    "What the heck is Bloody Knives?"
    "I dunno, never seen it."
    "You probally didn't care to see My Death at Noon, either."
    "Uh, yah, it was rated R?"
    "Really? Didn't look that violent when I saw it..."
    "Whatever! So are you coming or what?"
    Val unlocked his car, and started it while I went next door to fetch Jenna. I rung the doorbell, and was quickly answered by my friend. Today she was wearing a pink tank-top, and a pair of REALLY short jean-shorts. Her red hair was tied in a pony tail, and her phone was in hand.
    "Ready?" I asked, smiling faintly.
    Jenna nodded, slipping her phone into her back pocket. "Ready," she answered, looking me in the eye for the first time in a while.
    "Great. Val's in the car."
    "Wha'd you say to get him to drive us?"
    "I offered to buy him a ticket."
    "Ugh... I hope he doesn't want to see Enders."
    Jenna and I hopped into the back seats of Val's car, and quickly clipped our seatbelts. My older brother sighed, looking impatient as we readied ourselves.
    "You done yet?" he asked boredly.
    I rolled my eyes, and flashed back, "What do ya think?"
    As Val rolled the car out of the driveway, I looked out the window and noticed a faint figure in the bushes. As we sped off, I caught a glimpse of a black mask covering the face of the dark stranger.
    I reclined, trying not to breathe too quickly. Who were these people?! And why did they keep coming to my house?
    Val suddenly turned over his shoulder and asked, "Susan, have you been seeing anything strange lately?" I winced visablely, dreading his response to mine.
    "Um, mabye," I said hurriedly
    "Strange figures, perhaps?" Val questioned further.
    "Yes," I answered at last.
    "And why...?"
    "I don't have a darn clue, Val," I shot back at him.
    "Jenna?" my brother turned the spotlight onto our neighbor, who was busy texting again.
    "Wah? No, I haven't seen anything," Jenna said quickly, not looking up from her phone.
    "I had a good look at one once," Val said suddenly, turning back to the road ahead. "Tall, probally a grown man, wearing a black cloak and mask. He was also carrying a crossbow."
    "A crossbow?" I asked sarcasticly, giving him a look.
    "Yup. A crossbow, and not a shotgun. Wierd, right?" Val responded, then looked out and his face suddenly turned very pale.
    "What's going on?" I asked.
    In a weak voice, my brother responded.
    "We're being followed."
