Author Notes Edit
Is Maria being rude? You betcha. But if she does indeed have some kind of terrible past conflict with Emily, can you really blame her? “Forgive and forget” is a nice sentiment, but it’s not always that easy.
And what about Emily? People don’t normally change so quickly. That said, in all fairness, she’s been going through kind of a lot lately. Maybe it did cause some kind of epiphany for her. Or maybe Maria’s right, and she’s really just some conniving bitch looking for payback over arbitrary and petty things.
I wonder what happened between those two…
So what's up, Emily? You seem upset and I don't usually see you outside of school.
My house is kind of empty. And everyone else is busy...
Are you sure it's okay for me to be here though? I really don't want to be a burden.
No, it's fine.
We're just having a little get-together for the New Year. You're welcome to stay and join us if you have no one else to be with today.
I mean, I'm sure your parties are probably more fun, but we're all friends here so...
What do you mean Emily is here?
That's kinda rude, Maria.
No. I know her game. She's just here to wreck Rain's party, because she still thinks she ruined her Halloween party or her relationship or whatever BS it is this week.
I'm sure that's the only reason, she's been nice to Rain at all. To get close to her and try to get back at her over nothing.
Her image is the most important thing to her after all, and she'll do anything to preserve that.
Please don't. I've been on the receiving end of it before.
I... I... I'm sorry. I'll go talk to her...
It's okay. I have done some pretty crappy things in the past.
And well... The sooner she gets it out, the sooner we can just have fun.
