The Harrington Estate
The thumping bass of the music drowned out the further away from the dance floor I got. Kristen and Dylan had gone to get a few drinks, whilst Alicia was off with Katarina dragging along behind her like a younger sibling that you wish would just leave you alone. As for Claire, I honestly had no idea where she’d gone off to. It was getting late into the night, and as the debut of our new Pretty Committee member seemed to have gone overwhelmingly well, it had seemed like the perfect time to slip away from the dance floor myself and start on part 3 of Kat’s demands: the HART. And I had just the “pur-fect” person in mind for our new little Kitty Kat.
Stopping occasionally to talk to familiar faces, I made my way around the huge maze of people in the backyard of Darrington’s estate. After circling the premises, the side-parted and slightly spiked blonde hair and strong bone-structure of a good friend’s face popped out of the crowd. I strut my way towards him and, as I got closer, another blonde haired, light eyed boy came into view next to the first.
“Cody! Carson! Soo nice to see you again,” I rang out as the exchange of hugs began.
“Haven’t heard much from you since your own party, Massie,” Cody pointed out as he slung his arm around my shoulders.
“Well, you know, it’s best to keep a low profile for a short while after something like that. You two should know that better than anyone…” I laughed as I took the drink cup from his hand, took a sip, and slipped it back to him.
As I smirked at him, they both just shook their heads at me and chuckled. It felt so good to see them again, especially since I’d barely even seen them at my party. But as I looked, their images started to blur together – nothing new.
“Gawd, how is it possible that the two of you look even more alike now than at the beginning of the summer?!” I asked.
Again, all they did was look at each other before looking at me and chuckling again. They loved to confuse me; it had become a fun game to them throughout the spring of junior year last year. I simply rolled my eyes in response.
“Anyways, I have a favor to ask of you, Carson. You boys saw our new clique member, correct? I believe I caught one of you staring at her from the staircase earlier…”
“Yeah huh,” they both simultaneously agreed.
“Well, I need you to get her number, take her on a date, get to know each other, and so on and so forth.”
“Why?” Carson asked.
“It’s a very long story that I promise to explain over pizza and champagne sometime soon, but if you do this for me, I will owe you big time. Like, anything you want at all,” I pushed.
“Yeah, you better owe me something. But for you, I’ll do it,” he said as nudged me.
“Thank gawd. Thank you times ten! Uhm…there’s a slight catch though…” I muttered. “She can’t know that you’re a twin…she can’t see you boys together, you can’t talk about being a twin or having a twin, nada. Zip. Nuh-thing. Again, long story that will be explained with champagne. But please do this one thing for me.” I poured out.
“As long as you hold your word to giving us anything we want in return, it’s a deal,” Carson reached out his hand to shake on it. I did the same, smiled, and thanked them both.
“Fantastic, now to go introduce you to each other. Let’s go,” I chimed, grabbing their hands and leading them back inside the crowded house.
The Block Estate
“So Kat, what’d you think of Carson? Isn’t he a charmer?” I asked the newly-madeover girl on Skype during my clique’s six-way call. We hadn’t talked too much since the party a couple of days ago, and it was the night before the first day back at school, so we ah-v course had to carry on our tradition of Skype-ing to figure out first day outfits and catch up on drama and gossip.
“He certainly is. I like him so far and I even got his number,” she smirked. “I knew you would come through on that part of our deal.”
It was almost impossible to not purse my lips and roll my eyes at her. Ugh!
“Take it from me, he’s a pretty special guy,” I winked.
What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her…yet.
Bonjour wordpress lovelies,
Still working on getting into an actual posting schedule. Been distracted with school and outside activities lately.
