Misleading Titles, chapter 7Firedrake laughed quietly as he watched Ben came around to their table at the library, a giant book in his hands, it looked like it was putting a lot of strain on the boy. Ben then proceeded to drop the book right in front of Firedrake, the book making a very loud thump on the table. Of course that earned the two of them several harsh 'Shhhh's!' from the people around them in response. Ben didn't really seem too fazed by the angry voices, he took his seat next to the teen and sighed out.More Like This
Looking at the cover the best he could, Firedrake could see a bunch of strange creatures on the cover, one of which he was sure was a unicorn.
"Sorry about that, this library is a bit different from my school library, but all the same they have the same books here." Ben huffed out a bit, Firedrake reached over and dragged the book across the table so it was in front of him. Getting a better look at the cover now, he realized that the creatures that littered the cover where those of mythical beings, he
Misleading Titles, chapter 6"N-No?" Firedrake stuttered on his question, just plan out confused. He turned his head to look at Ben, his brother finally off of him, but was still clinging for dear life at Ben's hand. Ben on the other hand didn't seem to upset or mad, if anything he looked a bit intrigued. He then turned to stare Firedrake in the eyes, eyebrow raised up obviously trying to silently tell Firedrake something.More Like This
Johnathan stood from his chair and brushed his legs off, an apparent smirk on his face, a smirk that sent shivers down Firedrake's long spine.
"Well... Maybe we could reach an agreement?" Johnathan suggested to Firedrake, the smirk never leaving his mouth. The teen crossed his arms in an unease fashion and looked back at Ben, hoping for some sort of advice, but, he still got that intriguing look on his face with his eyebrow arched up.
"What kind of agreement?" Firedrake finally asked looking back towards Johnathan.
"The museum of Mythology, and your home, I want out," The man stated blunt
Misleading Titles, chapter 4The familiar chime of the ending bell rang aloud over the middle schoolers heads, telling them that school was now over. As all the students ran out at speeds that would make the flash jealous, Ben stayed behind, slowly lumbering all of his stuff neatly into his book bag. He always took his time when it came to leaving the school. It meant less time at home, then again, it also meant more time at school. Neither of those sounded very pleasant to the ten year old. Finally zipping up his bag, he swung it over his shoulder and headed out of the class room. Giving the teacher a wave goodbye, Ben made his way out of the school.More Like This
He had to walk home today, some days his mother would pick him up and drive him home, but not often. His father didn't want him to be lazy, so, Ben had to walk two miles to get home, which really wasn't too bad...In the winter, during the summer it was pretty horrendous. Still, he couldn't complain. Because, complaining was bad and often leads to some unpleasant thin
Misleading Titles, chapter 5If Firedrake had any idea on what he wanted to do on a perfectly beautiful Friday afternoon, waiting outside of a middle school wasn't on his list. Resting against a light pole close to the entrance, the teenager gave out a low sigh as the final middle school bell chimed out. Within seconds the outside was swarming with middle schools racing to get home. Keeping an eye out for a tiny seventh grader, his golden eyes scanned around, once a majority of the children cleared out, Firedrake breathed out a bit, hoping he didn't miss Ben, everyone was rushing by so fast...More Like This
After a couple more minutes of waiting, and watching the few stragglers hang around waiting for their parents to pick them up, he finally saw Ben walking out of the building. The small boy wearing the same hoodie as before, Ben looked up from the ground and saw Firedrake. The silver haired teen instantly noticed how Ben's eyes started to shine the moment he saw Firedrake. The boy ran forward and stopped right in front of his
Misleading Titles, chapter 3Firedrake gave out a soft hum as he went over the list in front of him. The said list were things that him and his partner should do together. Lots of things to do for the month, it almost made him chuckle because almost all of these things were things that people do on a date.More Like This
Go to the movies together.
Have dinner at one or the others house.
Go shopping, be it window or actual shopping.
Play video or board games together.
Visit each other in their class, must have parents and teachers signature to do so.
Go for a bike ride in the park, or just visit the park, either one is fine.
There were a lot more, some making Firedrake raise an eyebrow at some of the suggestions, not only were some of these kinda lame, and on top of it, you had to take pictures and write about it all in a composition notebook, and then, after you were done writing, you had to re write it all in a binder and add the pictures in the end. So much work and so little time. That was school life for you.

"Little freak. Her derrrr I'm so smart just because I skipped two grades. What person does that?"
"I've seen his partner for the project, fits that freak to a T, he looked so odd."
Ben frowned deeply and glanced down at his lunch tray, tugging down on his long sleeves, he bit his lip and tried his best to hold in the tears that started to collect and blur his vision. Swallowing hard, the boy shut his eyes and gave his head a quick shake from side to side. He held his breath and slowly stood up from his seat.
"Fucking freak, just because his dad is rich he thinks he's so cool."
Without saying anything, Ben scurried away towards the bathrooms, once in the restroom, Benjamin sniffled a bit and wiped his eyes on his sleeves, turning the water on he cupped his hands underneath the tap and waited as the water collected in his hands, once enough water was in his hands, he splashed the water on his face.

Misleading TitlesMost seniors in high school would be happy and excited about being out of class and walking away from the school, but, when you're walking away from one school yard to the middle school across the way, with the whole class full of twenty-five plus students and the teacher, it's a different story. A story that Sorrel couldn't help but complain about the whole way with her best friend, Firedrake by her side.More Like This
"This is completely stupid! Just stupid!"
"Oh, Sorrel, it's not that bad."
Sorrel gave a 'hmph' in response to Firedrake's nonchalant attitude over the assignment given to the two of them.
"Not that bad? Firedrake, they are making us watch children, Firedrake!"
Firedrake only rolled his eyes and toyed around with his dangling dragon earring as he spoke, his fingers messing around with the silver piece. He started chuckling when he could practically see steam escaping her ears.
"I think it'd be interesting," He confessed to his dark skinned friend with a smile.
