ELEVEN SHOWED UP AT CASSIE'S HOUSE the next morning after Hopper dropped her off on his way to work. When she arrived through the front door, El noticed music booming from the upper level of the house. Making her way upstairs, she opened the door to Cassie's room and immediately covered her ears.

"So please, please, please, let me, let me, let me, get what I want this time..." The Smiths played on the radio, volume turned all the way up.

As she lie in bed, Cassie found herself mentally tally all the reasons why she had left Mike yesterday. The whole 'ghosting the party' incident was a major reason on it's own, but there was more to it than that.

It wasn't a secret, Cassie Harrington needed to talk to someone.

Using her powers, Eleven turned the volume dial on the radio down, silently announcing her presence to Cassie.

"You look sad." Eleven told her as she took a seat on the side of her bed. "Why are you sad?"

"Ugh," Cassie groaned, answering defensively, "I'm not sad...I'm just thinking."


Sitting up abruptly, Cassie hugged the comforter to her chest and answered, "You know how sometimes you just get so frustrated from a boy you could scream?"

El furrowed her brows, "Like when you're angry at your brother?"

"No, no, like..." Cassie tried to search for the right words to say. "More when you have feelings for that boy."

"Feelings?" El asked innocently.

Letting out a sigh, Cassie knew that she needed to talk to someone with knowledge on relationships, knowledge on boys. Although El would be more than willing to help, she didn't have any knowledge on the topic.

Luckily, Cassie knew someone who did.

Cassie gasped, reaching over to the phone sitting beside her bed and picked it up, dialing the number of Max Mayfield's house. After three long rings, the line cut to a girl's voice, "Hello?"

"Max!" Cassie practically screamed. "Oh my god, I need your help."

"Cassie?" Max's voice asked from the other end of the line. "Whats up?"

"Can you come over?"

"I mean..." Max trailed, looking over at the clock beside her bed. "It's 9:00 AM."

Cassie shook her head continued speaking, "I know, and I'm sorry for calling this early but Eleven and I need you."

"Alright, I'll get dressed." Max agreed. "Be there in ten."


Just as she told them, Max Mayfield walked into Cassie Harrington's house ten minutes later with her skateboard at her side. By then, Cassie and Eleven had made their way downstairs to the kitchen and decided themselves breakfast.
