Today's excerpt from The Interceptors Club and the Secret of the Black Manta

> “I’m serious.” Static said. “You’ll be one of the first to fly the Manta, a super secret stealth aircraft that my gang of nerds have discovered. Remember my model? The real airplane has been stolen and we are going to steal it back.”

“What? The Manta is for real? I had heard rumors – but this --.

“I’ve seen it with my own two eyes and now it is the hands of the wrong people.”

“If this is a joke --.” Gavin threatened.

“It’s no joke.” Static said. “It’s as real as you are.”

As much as he didn’t like Static, something in his voice convinced Gavin he was telling the truth.

He looked back at his friends who had seemingly abandoned him. They bought their tickets and with a fleeting look back at Gavin went into the theatre.

“I never liked them anyway.” Gavin said.
