Before getting in Cooking Class I did a quick run to Mike's office. Not only I ended up as Cameron's partner. He wasn't serious about what I said at the restaurant, and if it was like that. I needed all the information I could get, and that I knew he wouldn't give away. The bet was on and I was not planning on losing to him to feed his pride.
"So, you need help because you want to win the bet, or because you want to know the real Cameron?" Mike asked some type of malicious satisfaction played in his voice.
Though this was not part of his job, he enjoyed listening to girls love stories. Mike had a different way of helping teenagers with their problems. After all, he wasn't that old either.

"First, I want you to spend the time you're supposed to spend with him, if you see no change, then I'll tell you everything about him," Mike said, a warm smile playing on his face. My eyes narrowed accusing him of trying to make his cousin win the bet.
"I think this is a good thing for Cameron. And for you too," he said more to himself; I knew, he wouldn't say anything even if I asked, so I just ignored him.
"Alright," I said not even trying to ...
