    Gathering Storms

    GATHERING STORMS
    PART THIRTEEN:

    Except... it wasn't the bald man.
    I knew he was the same, but he lookec different. A LOT different. Worry no longer shone in his watery blue eyes, and he didn't look as short and fat as before. In fact... now he looked tall and scrawny. And he wasn't bald anymore—a mop of untidy brown hair was on his head, probally a wig.
    I took his hand, and he hauled me to my feet. I dusted myself off, muttering, "Sorry."
    "No need to apologize, no need," the man said cheerily, smiling brightly. "I was looking for you anyway."
    I frowned, and was beginning to wonder if I had been mistaken, and this wasn't the bald man after all.
    "Why were you looking for us...?" I questioned, exchanging a confused glance with Val. My brother just shrugged, and we turned back to the strange man.
    "Mr. Jones wants to see ya. I'll take you to meet him. Je's right over there," the man replied in a cheery voice, gesturing for us to follow him. Destiny, Val, and I all exchanged glances, before following.
    Mr. Jones was a tall, middle-aged man wearing a fancy suit, and also with black hair and dark eyes. He smiled faintly as we approached, and said, "Call me Jones, though I'm more widely known as Kent Johnson."
    "You're the guy directing Dauntless?" Val asked, narrowing his dark blue eyes and raising one eyebrow.
    "That's correct," Jones replied.
    "So what are you doing here?" Destiny questioned curiously. I was curious too—why would a super dooper famous movie director come to Silverpine? After all, we're basically a smaller city smack in the middle of nowhere.
    "I'm filming Dauntless here," Jones replied, exchanging a quick glance with the not-bald man.
    "I thought you were filming it in California. That's what the news is saying," Val said.
    "Yes, I planted a false lead," Jones explained, smiling slightly again. I felt a pang of distrust, and wondered if this Mr. Jones was really who he said he was. What if Jones was in league with the masked men?
    "You're probally wondering why I was looking for you. The reason is that I need some teens to play in Dauntless, and I'd rather them be lesser actors, nobodys, or just some random kids with talent from Silverpine. So that's why Mr. Wilson and I organized this talent show," Jones told us.
    "And you want us to be in... a super popular movie?" I asked, not believing a word of it.
    "That's correct. You three, and another few who we've chosen. Robin Peterson, Matthew Collins, and Ashley Porter. Do you known any of them?" he said.
    I froze when I heard Robin's name, and quietly shook my head to myself.
    "So... what about it?" the other man, Mr. Wilson, asked.
    "I dunno..." Val said uncertainly.
    "Well, come back here on Wendsday," Jones told us. "Fred and I will be waiting for your answers, along with all of the other actors, to prove this isn't a joke."
    "Okay... um, thanks," I said, watching as Jones and Fred strode off, talking quietly with each other.
    "Well, um, see you then," Destiny said.
    "Bye," I told her, watching her go. I sighed, and began to finger the hilt of my knife.
    Was I really going to do this?
    Was Jones lying?
    Or was this for real?
