"Tyler..." I said to my friend, as I sat on the edge of my bed in my bedroom. The room had light blue walls, and was fairly small. I had a small single bed, with low oak bed posts on each corner. The pillowcase and duvet cover was blue and indigo striped, and a little Pokemon plushie sat by my pillow. The carpet was white and fluffy, with a little pick stain from when I had spilt nail varnish on it when I was 10. I had a little square window, and silvery curtains. Just underneath was a small desk, painted violet. Tyler was daydreaming again. He does that all the time, always looking sad when he thinks I'm not looking. "Tyler! Hello?"

"Huh? What is it Kucio?"

"I told you, I think I've got an idea for a scoop this time. There was a reason why I invited you over!"

"Right. Whatever. You know these little stories always fail, Mr. Burma's never gonna let you publish an article." He replied.

"She can't replace you if she got the job first."

"You're no help." I said.

"Tyler, you're my best friend!" I told him, "I'd never replace you with anyone."

"Why don't I believe you?" He replied in monotone.

"You just should, I've known you for like... forever." I Just want him to be happy, really. "Now are you going to help me or not?"

"Fine. Do you have a thing then?"

"Yep!" I said enthusiastically. "Do you remember the other day, when Mia Lee saw the new guy, Joe, behind the art room at school, dealing drugs?"

"Yeah? I thought that was just a rumor."

"Well, now, Mia's gone. She told me first, and you have to understand, Mia would never lie to me."

"So you think Mia disappeared because of Joe?" Tyler said. He was just starting to sound curious.

"Well, that could be a reason. It's just an idea.""

"This is interesting..."
