I knock on Nya's door and she opens it but a second later.

"You know, you don't need to knock," she says, closing the door behind me. "You can-"

"Lloyd and I kissed," I say, interrupting her.

"El and I kissed!"

"No way!" Jay says, jumping down from his bunk.

"Took you long enough," Cole mutters.

"How was it?" Kai asks.

"It was, amazing," I respond to Nya.

She squeals. "I'm so happy for you! It was so obvious you guys liked each other, I could slice through the sexual tension with your daggers!" She says, causing me to burst out laughing.

"It was, good. Like, really good. Like a new kind of good."

"That's what I feel when I kiss Nya!" Jay says.

"I don't want to to know what you feel when you kiss my sister," Kai says, looking at Jay in disgust. Cole snorts.

"Neither do I," Zane adds.

Lloyd rolls his eyes. "Guys! Stay on topic. What do I do now?"

"Where do you think you're at now?"

I shrug, sighing. "I don't know. I want to be something with him. But he already has so much on his plate, I'm scared he doesn't want or isn't ready for a relationship."

"Well, what do you want?" Cole asks.

"I want to be with her, duh."

Kai laughs. "There's more to it than that. What kind of relationship do you want with her?"

"Wha-what'd you mean?"

"Well, I'm assuming you want some kind of relationship, so what's your speed?" Kai asks.

"I'd suggest keeping it slow until things clear up. There's a lot going on right now," Zane says.

"I agree with Zane," Cole says. "Keep it slow, but make sure to stay in the game as well."

"Mind explaining what that means?" Lloyd asks impatiently.

"Make sure to hang with her. You can't really go on typical dates because of your situation, but make up for it," Jay says.

"Don't forget to kiss her and cuddle with her when you guys do hang. Girls love that stuff," Cole says.

"But don't come off too strong," Kai adds.

"This is a lot. How do I know you guys aren't making these things up?" Lloyd asks.

"I've run all this information through the internet, and it seems correct," Zane says.

"Plus this is our El, we don't want anything to go wrong," Cole says.

"Well, how do I tell him how I feel?" I ask Nya.

"I'd wait for him to make the first move. I'm sure the boys will put him up to it." She responds. "You like him for real, right?"

I frown. "I'm serious about him."

"Good, I'm pretty sure he is too. Like I said before, it's obvious. But it might not be until later that things can really happen for you two. I mean, he is the Green Ninja. He has a destiny ahead of him."
