"Every ending is just a sweet new beginning." - Riley Monroe
Let's just say that Raven woke me up extra early the next day. By early, I mean four o'clock in the morning.
"Raven?" I whispered. "What are you doing?"
"Shhh" Raven placed her finger to her lips. "Hurry up and brush your teeth and let's go. Everything's ready outside."
What's going on? I groggily stood up and made my way to the restroom. After brushing my teeth and hair, I made my way out of the cabin not bothering to change.
"So what's going on?" I asked her after I got outside.
She tightened the straps on her drawstring bag and looked up at me. "Today is the day where we put our plan in action."
I yawned. "Yeah I know, but why wake me up at oh I don't know, four o'clock in the morning?!" I throw my hands up in exasperation. "I thought we were going to act on our plan after the final round of the competition."
Raven nods. "Yes we are, but we need to get the stuff near the location first." She handed me a gray drawstring bag and we both started heading towards the boy's cabins.
After a few moments of walking, Raven finally spoke up. "So I've been thinking that we should let the other girls in on our prank."
I raised my eyebrows in curiosity. "Why?"
"Because we will need all the help we can get for this prank to work out," She replied.
"What exactly are you planning to do, Raven?"
She winks at me and sent a text on her cell phone. "That should do it."
She reached inside the back and handed me a pillow and jar of honey.
Without giving me a chance to ask her about the plan, a loud horn was sounded in front of the cabin.
Within seconds, Luke and Asher came running out followed by James and Aaron. All had a set of bed head and rumpled clothes on as if they got dressed in a hurry. Aaron was still in his boxers along with an inside out shirt. However, despite how he looked like, my heart still skipped a beat.
As they were frantically looking around trying to find the source of the endless blaring, Cassidy and Tammy walked out from behind a tree holding an air horn.
Watching from behind the cabin, I saw Tammy saying something to the guys and Cassidy taunting them. Then, they all took off running with the guys chasing them.
Once they were gone, Raven grabbed the materials. "Come on, let's finish this before they get back."
Once we finished "decorating" the guys' cabin, we quietly slipped back to our cabin and cleaned ourselves up.
Tonight was the last day of the competition. As I stood there on the stage with Aaron looking at the crowd along with the last of the contestants, butterflies were fluttering in my stomach.
Third time on the stage and I still haven't gotten used to the light. As I was getting lost in my thoughts, a hand reached own and gave mine a squeeze. I looked up and gave Aaron a soft smile. Turning my attention back on the judges, I saw Mark hold up his hand to silence the audience. It was as if the entire camp was there to watch the finale. After the audience fell into silence, Raine leaned into her microphone.
"Welcome to the last round of the competition!" She smiled. "Before we begin, I would like to congratulate all of you who have made it this far. And, I would also like to remind you that even if you do not win, it's not over. Now, I let Alan take over."
