"Who you got?" Petr asks, leaning over to see her paper. His gaze flies up to mine. He smiles. "Everyone here wants Captain Mathis. He's always got his shit together and never loses."

"Then someone here will be happy to swap with me," she replies coolly.

The guys exchange looks around me, not sure what to make of her insistence.

"I'll trade you, Sawyer," Harris offers.

"Nope. No swaps," Petr says quickly. "Captain Mathis is the best man out here, and that's who you're teamed up with."

By the astonished look on Katya's face, her brother has never put his foot down before.

I'll admit, as childish as it sounds, the fact she wants nothing to do with me provokes the side of me that wants to show her why she's wrong. Again. I'm not sure how this girl gets under my skin, but she does.

"I need long-sleeved shirts," Katya says, peering with dissatisfaction into her bag.

What is with her? I'm ready to write her and her shirts off as crazy when Brianna responds.

"Something wrong with short sleeves? Fat arms or a few scars you don't want anyone to see?" she laughs.

Katya's face is red. I'm thinking there's some knowledge between the two about the shirts. I can't begin to guess what it is, or why I have a feeling Katya and Brianna are going to be at each other's throats this week.

The awkward silence that falls is interrupted by Mr. Khavalov.
