If All Your Friends Jumped Off A Cliff

Aaron stood facing himself in the mirror. Brown eyes met brown eyes in a staring contest he couldn't win.

“I won't do it. I refuse to do it. If you try to make me, I'll go to the professor.” Aaron's voice wavered a bit as he spoke.

Closing his eyes, he tried again with a steadier voice. “I won't do it. You can't make me do it. I won't. I refuse. I will not break any more rules.”

“Excuse me?” Meghan said from the doorway.

Aaron turned to face her. “I won't do it.”

“You won't do what?”

“Break the rules. I refuse to break the rules with you anymore. I will not allow you to break the rules anymore either. You nearly killed those travellers with your storm and you hardly seem to care.”

Meghan's eyes narrowed as she glared at Aaron. “Who are you to tell me what I can or cannot do? You break the rules yourself, sneaking out at night with your girl.”

“Maybe so, but I don't endanger other people's lives.”

“No? That's not how I see it. And believe me, if you try to stop me from having fun, I will weave a tale so well about you that you'll believe it. So, if I were you, I would just let things be, because Aaron, you don't want me as an enemy.” Meghan turned and walked out of the room, leaving Aaron to think about which choice he would make.
