“He said ‘Never’”, announced Becker. “You?”
“I got a simple ‘No’”, answered Emily.
“Me: ‘No way’”, sighed Jess.
“’Forget it’”, added Matt, then they stared at Abby.
“Oh, I think I won, I got an ‘Over my dead body’”, said she, sadly. It had been her idea: if everyone went to Lester to ask for it separately and at different moments, maybe one of them would be lucky… but they had all failed.
“We still have Connor, he didn’t try yet.”
“I wouldn’t count on him. Connor has always had the mysterious power to drive Lester mad even doing nothing!”
Abby, Jess, Becker, Emily and Matt were waiting in the corridor outside the gym, without a real hope of being successful in their enterprise, when Connor turned the corner with a broad smile in his face.
“Connor?!? What news?”
“He said ‘Yes’!” the triumphant tone was evident in his voice.
“What?!?!” “You’re kidding, aren’t you?”
“No, no, he really did! We can have our First ARC Halloween Party!”
Cries of joy and victory filled the corridor at that announcement, but Abby was still astonished. “How did you do it?”
Connor’s smile became even bigger. “The magician never reveals his tricks!”
