“Eager, are we?” she asked.

“Just a lot…” he replied. She turned around to see Josh and Alex catching up, both out of breath.

“What… were… you… THINKING ?!?” Josh yelled between panting. Alex sat against a tree to rest.

“Are you honestly stupid enough to go the wrong way?” Nichole fussed. “You’re the new king.”

“Of what?”

“Of stupidity. Josh was—”

“HEY!” Josh yelled.

“If I may continue,” she said calmly, “You are now the king of stupidity, Ethan. Now let’s go.” She slid away, leaving a cold trail behind her.
