10:00PM. Lexi peeked out in to the hallway. At the end of the hall her dad's bedroom door was closed and the faint sounds of his snoring could be heard. She smirked to herself and ducked back in to her bedroom. The oldman (as he liked to call himself) crashed early on the weekends, leaving their family owned gas station under the care of some part-timer and leaving his only daughter up to her own devices. Any other day, that wouldn't of been a concern. Outside of a few harmless shenanigans, Alexa Ryan was a well behaved teenage girl. She didn't go out to weird parties, drinking, do drugs or even smoke. There were no obnoxious boyfriends or underaged sex. In fact, Lexi didn't even have friends. The one person in the world she hung out with was probably about as uninteresting as she was. But she had every intention of making their world a million times more exciting. Starting with tonight. Climbing out now, meet you at the treeline. She texted Knucker before her phone got tucked away in to her back jeans pocket. He was her best friend, probably the bestest friend anyone in the world could have. Just hanging out with each other had always been enough. There wasn't anything they got in to that didn't turn out to be a blast. But this was the last weekend of summer vacation, before senior year. Seniors. After this year High School would be over and they'd be going off to college. Joining the world as adults and kissing their twosome goodbye. Lexi didn't even know if she wanted to go to college. So this last year of High School couldn't be like all the others. It had to be BIG. For the rest of her life she was going to look back at this year and know it was the one that changed everything. Making up her bed so it looked like she was sleeping in it, Lexi admired her handiwork one quick time before she pushed open her bedroom window and climbed out of it. From there all she had to do was shimmy down off the roof and jump to the ground. She ran across the backyard and hopped over the fence. Dashed through the big meadow that stretched out behind their property until she reached the treeline of Silent Pines Forest. There she waited, wearing a sparkling tank top and a skinny pair of jeans, along with some flashy strands of beads. Out in the middle of the town forest Margrit Berkshire was having an end of summer party. The girl was the Queen Bee of Silent Pines. Anyone and everyone important at school was going to be there. And as soon as Knucker hurried his slow ass up, they would be too.
