Chapter 18 Jaons POV- i opened the big door to the liabrary. Inside there were thousands of books stacked on selves. In the center of the room was a loveseat and a coffetable. And off to the side was a desk with a chair. Mary sat down in the loveseat and took out her notes. I sat down next to her and did the same. We did sevral ideas and began writing the report. When it was finished she looked out the only window. She saw that a thunder storm was going on outside. She couldnt bike home. But I couldnt dro her off because my car was low on gas and couldnt make it. "Can stay here for the night" i suggested. I had a guest room. She nodded. Malinda gave her some pjs and she called her dad and said where she was. Malinda made us chinese stir fry. We ate it together. When it was tim for bed she walked upstairs and went into her room. I walked into mine. I slept on my bed.
