Zeke turned around to see Audrey along with a huge wave of Geeks behind her. "Kid, get on the bus!" he said as he grabbed her and pulled her into the bus. "Are we missing anyone?" he asked looking around the bus.
Audrey squeaked as she as pulled onto thebus, grabbing Quinn just in time." Whew, that was mildly entertaining." She said, watching bloody hands pound on thedoor of the bus.
"What the hell were you thinking?! You could have gotten yourself killed!" Alex yelled, blocking her into one of the seats by positioning his body in the way.
"I didn't want Quinn to get lost," She responded, frowning incredulously.
"What would you have done if you both had gotten lost and ran into Geeks? "He asked sternly.
"We would have killed th-"
"You would have GOTTEN killed. A kid and injured girl, you guys were asking to be eaten!"He yelled.
"I'm NOT a kid anymore Alex! I'm almost 14 years old. Which isn't muchbut consider the life I've been living. Living with you and you alone is not easy. You of all people should know. We both had to grow up ahead of our time."She said, standing up and meeting his glare with a stony tearful one of her own. Moments passed before Alex sighed in defeat.
"I tried my best.........."He said softly, staring at the ground, fists clenched and shaking."I tried....." He moved towards the front of the bus and sat in the drivers seat, staring at the wheel for a moment before starting the engine.
