1. The party got cancelled
'don't b l8' the text read. Plume wouldn't want me to be late for a party since its the first one that I've been to since December. Plume does so much to help me make up for my lack of social skills. My best friend, Lizzie Taylor, or Plume as we called her is my bffl. Nobody else would get me. We call her Plume because she's so light. We would have called her Feather, but she's ashamed to say she's a descendent of a first nations tribe. My name's DeKayla Jones. I live with my three older brothers, plus my twin brother, who I'm glad to say is younger by three minutes. Mom died giving birth to me and Joseph. My older brothers are: Jakob, who disappeared just after Mom's death, Caylebb who's twenty and Jonah who's twenty-three. Jonah takes care of us, but I spend most of my time with Plume. She's literally the sister that I've never had. My pocket buzzed, signaling that I had a new text message.
'Dont b l8 it starts @ 5!!! Come over and we can drive u ttyl Plume' Plume's mom would want me over there at Four Fourty. Which would be now. She was getting into the car when I ran up to their house.
"What took you so long?" Plume asked.
"I had to run two and a half blocks to get here." I answered. She knows that I couldn't take my skate board today.
"Come on. We wanna get there fashionably late right?"
"No, not at all."
"Anyways, so we brought some candy for the ride because I know you'd be hungry."
"Where is it?!" I asked her looking around her mom's car. Plume laughed and handed me as bag of candy and an earbud. She cranked the volume up on he new iPod touch. Use somebody by Kings of Leon blasted through the bud. We were arranging ourselves in the back seats of the car when Plume's cell started to chime Call me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. She fished out the phone from her pocket and answered.
"Hello?" she called through the receiver. "What? No way! It can't be!" then she paused. "Alright, fine. Talk to you later. Bye." and with that she hung up.
"What happenned?" I asked.
"It got cancelled. Apparantly, Rae's parents had to stay home for his brother José. How do you feel about staying for the evening. Joey and Mom won't mind."
"Yeah, I just have to call Jonah and tell him, well he won't care anyways, but Joseph will. So I'll call Joseph." I pulled out my cell from the back pocket of my pants. It went to Joseph's voice mail. "Hi Joseph, it's Dee. Party's offsite I'm staying at Plume's. And I you're wondering that's Lizzie's house. Bye. Be back at around, I dunno. Call you when." I hung up my cell.
