Constance Billard & St. Jude
Fifth period had just ended and the hallways were filled with chatter. Even more-so than usual seeing as how all of the students were still catching up from the recently ended winter break. The school’s favorite “It Girls” were spotted by their pristine lockers, doing what they do best: gossiping and looking hawt.
I stared at the reflection of myself in the small-sized mirror hanging from my locker door. A brand new Glossip Girl flavor had been waiting for me outside my estate’s front door this morning, so I figured I could try it out. It was Spiced Bourbon, and it smelled wonderful. As I applied it to my lips, it created a tinted but shining look – a flawless finish that I ah-dored. I could hear the girls chatting in the background about how some girl got a nose-job or boob-job or something, but it faded from my mind when I saw a reflection of Kris’s face in my mirror, looking kind of upset.
Turning around to face her, I wanted to see what was up.
“Why the gloomy look, Kris? Need some gloss to turn that frown into a sparkling smile?” I asked, holding out the tube of lip gloss for my blonde friend to take.
“What I need is my boyfriend. I miss him…” she confessed.
“Connor misses you too, and you know that. Talk to him lately?”
“No, but we have a Facetime date tonight…” she trailed off.
“So just keep that in the back of your mind and smile knowing that you get to see him tonight, well, technically speaking,” Alicia butted in. She was right.
“What’s going on tonight?” Carson slinked on over to where we were standing, as if right on cue, and slid his arm around Katarina’s waist. It was just enough to make Massie want to barf. Her attention, thankfully, was sent to her phone though, which had begun buzzing from a text.
“Nothing, I don’t think. Mass?” Katarina turned to me as she asked, but her words passed straight through my ears as my eyes scanned the text message over and over.
Cody: Wishing that was me with my arm around you?
I looked around, spotting the other twin down the hall just as he walked into his next class.
Shaking my head, I looked back down at the phone screen and began to respond, but I somehow couldn’t hold back a slight smile. It was just something about him.
Massie: Me wish? No. But obviously you do.
“Uh hello! Earth the Massie Block!” Kat raised her voice.
“Yeah, sorry,” I insincerely apologized. “Uh, Leesh and I are having Alpha-Beta time at my place to talk boys.” And to talk further details about the where the ‘Get Rid Of Katarina Plan’ would be taking place, she silently added in her own mind. “Other than that, no Pretty Committee stuff.”
The bell rang off, signaling that it was time for all of the students to get to their next class. I closed my locker door, gently as to not knock down the mirror, and pulled my bag back over my shoulder.
“See you 7th period,” Dylan waved as she and Claire went off in one direction to their class, while the rest of us split off into separate classrooms in the hall they were already in. The good news was, Katarina wasn’t in my next class…the bad news was, Cody was in it. But maybe, just maybe, that wasn’t such a bad thing after all.
Bonjour wordpress lovelies,
Drama will be coming soon…
