Airwood
“Addison! Come over here!” my best friend, Ellie called. I walked over to the couch in the Roslen living room and pulled out my phone. “Got any plans after school tomorrow?”
Ellie asked me. I winced. I was trying out for the drama club, no one could know, especially Maya. I would be the laughingstock of the school! “Erm...I have a.....math! I have a math test to make up tomorrow!” I was in a different honors math class than Ellie was, so she didn’t know when I had a test. “Okay...” Ellie said, looking skeptical, “Well, let me know if you need help studying.”
Ellie had been by best friend since we were nine and we had been through everything together. And now we were roommates at Airwood Middle Boarding School. But there was something off between us. Something that I knew she wasn’t going to tell her unless I asked her. But I mean it’s not like I wasn’t keeping anything from her...I mean, I want to tell her about my passion for acting, but I just, can’t. I hopped in the shower and changed into
I arranged my hat over my black curls and found my purse. Ellie and I decided to go to Zero, this awesome new pizza joint a block away from Airwood’s campus. We ordered a pepperoni pizza and cokes and waited for our food. My phone made a noise and I looked at my texts. Mandi, my friend from Winchester, the small town in Connecticut I was from, had texted me.
Mandi: Hey, city girl!
Addison: I might be in NY, but i’m still from the country!
Mandi: Uh-huh, suuuuuure
Addison: GTG!! Our food’s here! Bye Di!
We ate quickly and hurried through the cold and changed into PJ’s.
We laid down on our twin beds and decided to watch Harry Potter and the Order Of the Phoenix.
“I’m going to make popcorn Ellie! Be right back!” I shouted, already out the door. I finished salting the popcorn and went back to our dorm to see Maya leave, “Hey, Addison!” Maya said, eyeing my popcorn, “Still not on a diet I see.” Maya said in a falsely cheery voice. I rolled my eyes, “I could try to see things from your point of view, but I can’t get my head that far up my butt. Maya looked at me like I was crazy, but I let it roll off my back.
I walked into my room and looked at Ellie. “What was Maya here for?” I asked. Ellie shrugged, “Bored, and looking for someone to make fun of I guess.” Ellie said, but she wouldn’t make eye contact with me. We sat up till ten o’ clock eating junk food and laughing about our crazy Potter conspiracies.
We had both been obsessed with the series since we were ten and it had been a great four years. We ate so much popcorn that i’m pretty sure that I had to go back to the living room seven times. At around one in the morning Ellie and I fell back onto our beds and slept the rest of the night.
