The Spy Way
Chapter 7After spy attitude class. I had language and martial arts. After all my classes were done, I texted my mom.
“Hey mom, softball is over and I’m coming home” Okay, you probably want an explanation on why I just told my mom I was at softball. Well, when I found out my father was a spy she didn’t. My father’s will only allowed me to find out. So I’m not allowed, under any circumstance, to tell my mom my father was a spy.
“Being a spy was so cool. I could be everything I wanted. Quick and stealthy. Smart in what I thought mattered. And mysteriously unique.” I thought to myself as I started to walk out of the building with Jess.
I thought as a spy I was ready for anything. I could do anything I wanted to accomplish. In a way, I was indestructible. I had never felt so wrong. I was walking past the headmaster’s office when I turned the corner. Heading home, I heard the words that made my heart stop.
“Rich, Alex’s father is still alive.”
