    GATHERING STORMS

    GATHERING STORMS
    PART TEN:

    Val drove swiftly down the road, frowning as a speeding motercycle veered in front of us before rocketing off. I followed his gaze, knowing that Val had been wanting a motercycle of his own for some time now, but Kate had protested that motercycles were too dangerous. I agreed with her, knowing how reckless my brother could be, but half-agreed with Val. After all, we'd experienced lots of danger lately, hadn't we?
    Val passed a slow-driving truck, before turning into thr large parking lot that streatched before the building where the talent show was being held. I still wasn't sure how my brother had talked me into this, but, here we where.
    I followed Val out of the car, slamming the door shut behind me. We strolled up to the building, where a long line of people were waiting to be admitted. My older brother and I took our places in the line, and waited.
    A blonde girl walked up, and got into line behind us, twirling her long hair and batting her eyelashes.
    "Hi," she said dreamily.
    "Hey," I muttered, but was ignored.
    Running his fingers through his untidy hair, Val replied boredly, "Hey."
    "I'm Lizzie," the blonde girl breathed. Her breath smelled like peppermint.
    "Val," my brother said.
    "You have a girlfriend?" Lizzie whispered.
    I rolled my eyes. She'd make good friends with Jay.
    "Uh, yah. This is my girlfriend," Val said quickly, grabbing my arm and pulling me close.
    "Oh. Sorry," she said, not sounding sorry at all. Sticking her nose up, she turned and stalked away.
    "Is that all anyone worries about anymore?" I muttered under my breath, shoving Val off of me.
    "What?" my brother asked.
    "Girlfriends and boyfriends."
    "I dunno. Mabye."
    "Next!"
    We looked up, seeing a plump woman calling to us. She sat behind a large table, which was covered in papers.
    "Names?"
    "Susan Richardson," I answered.
    "Val Richardson," my brother added.
    "And your talents...?" the lady prompted.
    "Drawing," Val replied quickly.
    "Knife-tossing," I said.
    "Knife-tossing?!" the woman repeated, looking slightly shocked. She shook her head, but scribbled it down on a sheet of paper.
    "And your ages," she said.
    "Eighteen, nearly nineteen," Val said. I frowned in his direction before saying evenly, "Fifteen."
    "Okay, thank you. Head inside, and you will be given directions," the woman instructed.
    Val shrugged, and we both headed inside. The building was huge, and filled with chairs, which were filled with people—mainly moms chatting with their neighbors.
    "Billy is going to win, I'm sure. I've never seen a more talented pianist!" one bragged.
    "No, May is going to win. She's been practicing her solo all month, and deserves the credit," another objected.
    A man walked up to us, and directed us towards another door. A line of kids streatched down a long hallway.
    "Wait untill your name is called," the man told us. "Then you go onstage to perform." With that, he left a strode over to another contestant.
    "Sounds easy," I said with a shrug.
    "What am I gonna draw on, though? I don't have a pen, or any paper," Val hissed under his breath.
    "The floor?" I joked.
    Val shrugged, saying, "Mabye."
    I shrugged as well, and we joined the line.
