The moment I noticed her tense up, I knew she was going to turn towards my direction any minute.

When she began to turn, I shifted my gaze immediately, knowing she might have caught me staring. Again.

What the hell is wrong with you Max?

"He would be disguised as a normal student." I said, breaking the silence on our table.

Zack looked up at me... Shocked that I replied to his question.

"He wouldn't take up center roles like student president. He'd just be normal. He'd have normal friends and maybe a girlfriend, or not. He'd be something no one really noticed." I said, looking around.

"Like a nerd?" Zack asked.

I turned to his direction. "Maybe." I said.

His brows raised in surprise. He still didn't believe I was talking to him.

"Then I guess we should take all the nerds in this school for interrogation." Enzo said.

"No... That wouldn't be wise. It doesn't even make sense." Zack said.

Enzo's frown deepened. "Excuse me?"

"No, I'm just saying." Zack raised his two hands in surrender.

"What do you think we should do Zack?" I found myself asking.

His eyes widened. "What? Me?"

I fixed my gaze at him, waiting for a reply.

He straightened up. "Uh... I think we should blend in with the crowd. If we're one of them, we'd hear gossips, and from those gossips, we'd be able to put two and two together. If Alessandro's son is really here, he'd get so suspicious, then he'd do something... Something that would surely catch out attention. But if he doesn't do anything. Then we'd do something to catch his attention."

I was beyond impressed. He was really smart. I didn't even think of that.

"Oh... That's actually a good idea." Enzo said.

"Yeah?" Zack smirked.

"Yeah it is." I said. "Alessandro's son could be anyone. We have to fit in to pick him out of the crowd. There's no Better way to do it. Really."

"So how do we start? We're not exactly friends with anyone here." Enzo said.

I took in a deep breath and sat up. "I have a plan."

"Okay? Shoot." Enzo sat up too, and so did Zack.

"Well, Mr. Smile asked me to tutor Allison Cherry on Calculus. I guess, that's his way of punishing me for speaking the truth in class. Anyway, that's not important. Allison Cherry has two close friends who seem to have a decent amount of mutual friends here and there. If we can get closer to Allison and the two guys, we can start up the mingling thing. We could use them to get informations and probably carry out some tasks. What do you say?"

"Sounds like a plan. But why Allison?" Zack asked.

Yes, Max? Why Allison? You hate her guts remember? So why do you want to spend time with her? It doesn't make any sense!
