9. Friendships

My head was spinning with information, with questions that probably couldn't ever be answered. This was real. I have been reading through these books one by one, coming to the library with Ally every day for a few hours after school. I've skimmed through at least six books this week, each with hundreds of pages. Each one of our relatives, i'm guessing, have written a book on their experience. The one I had first looked through was Perry's. She had many mistakes because of her dyslexia, but her story went something like this.


We had ben mixing some tipe of, what do you call it? Potion? Drink, maybe? Well, I guess. I wasn't really afriad of it, so I drinked it first. It tastid horrible with all the junk we put into it. They chanted to chug it all, and that's exactly what I did. I still wasnt afiad of it. Why would I be? I have a iron stomach, and I can stand almost anything. Literaly. I didnt end up puking it up afterwords, it kinda had already settled and the taste is gone. Had I mentioned that this was for my 15th birthday? Well, my birthday was a few weeks ago but im just now having a party. I made all my friends drink a sip of it too. Some drinked more then others, thats why they got more or better powers. I had all of them, and thats when I became they're leader--The Larker.


She continues rambling on about how everything works and how she ended up finding her powers and what not. She gets into the power explanations as they come along. Nothing that I find to interesting because I've already learned the powers from another book. Too many things we roaming around in my mind as I tried to figure out how to see if I had powers. Many of the books say that you just figure them out one day by doing random things. Perry said that it was different for all of them. For her she had to do difficult stunts. She had to jump off of a building to see if she had flying. She knew that she should have it because Darcy had figured out her flying before. Darcy was from Skylar's family.

"I knew I would find you here," a familiar voice spoke.

Speaking of Skylar. I turn around to face her familiar face.

"Yes Skylar?" I ask.

"Whatcha reading?" she asks.

"I'm still reading Perry's. Did you need something?" I ask.

"Well, you're invited to a party from Carlos, if you don't remember."

"I am?" I ask confused.

"Yes! You are!" she yells excitedly.

"Young lady, this is a library," a librarian whispers to her.

"Sorry!" Skylar whispers back.

"Nice job," I laugh.

"Are you going?" she asks as she takes a seat beside me.

"I don't know. Im kind of busy."

"It's Carlos! The boy you are madly in love with."

"This is more important then a-"

"No you're going!" she interrupts.

She pulls me from my chair that I've been sitting in all day, and drags me out of the building. Did she get stronger, or is that one of her powers? The sun hits my skin as we get out of the shade, and it's hot! Why much hotter then I remember a few hours ago. I slide into her passengers seat, and she buckles up, and heads off.

"Am I aloud to get ready first?" I ask her.

"Yes! That's why I got you a few hours early. We're getting you a new outfit, i'm buying, and then we'll head to my house to get ready."

"Oh okay, cool." I smile.

"Thanks!" I add.

"No problem! Now tell me what you've learned today, please?" she asks.

"Sure. I was just reading about Darcy, you know you're relative. You kind of interrupted my thinking, but whatever. I figured out that Perry is the leader, and that she had to jump off a building to see if she had flying. Oh and Darcy had flying too," I say.

"So I could be able to fly?" she asks.

"Yep!" I say.

 We park into the parking lot of the Deb, and we both hurry out. The car beeps, locking.

"How was I invited to this party again?" I ask her.

"He asked you in last period. He gave you a note, remember?" she asks.

"Oh. Oh yeah!" she replies.

"I worry about you sometimes," she laughs.

"I know," I laugh along.

We walk up to the brick building that has purple lettering, spelling Deb. The automatic doors open for us and we walk in. A Lea Michele song plays softly in the background, but still loud enough to hear. Battlefield. We walk to the left, past the shoes, shirts, and short and head to the teenage dresses. A black one catches my eye so I go straight to it. It flows to about the knee, and on the back it's cris-crossed. Simple, but still pretty.

"Should I try this one?" I ask.

"Yes," she smiles.

I keep looking through the racks of clothing, and then I see another cute dress. This one has teal ruffles at the top, and then it Zebra down to about the middle of your lower leg. It's very form-fitting too.

"This one?" I ask.

"Uhm, too weird," she states.

I put it back on the rack.

"Ohh. What about this?" Skylar asks.

I look over at her direction and see what's she's holding. It's a navy blue hue, and goes to about the knee as well. It looks like it could be strapless but it has lace sleeves that look fantastic. She flips it so I can see the back, and it's more lace from the sleeves.

"I think yes! That's the one," I smile.

"Grab a few different sizes to see which one works better, I'll try it on," I say.

"Alright!" she says.

I place the black dress back on the rack, and head to the dressing rooms. I hop into one and I start to get undressed.

"Which one are you in?" I hear Skylar's voice.

I stick my foot out of the bottom of the door, a code we use.

"This one," I say.

She laughs and hands the dresses above the door. I quickly try the medium size on first, but it's way to big. I then put on the smaller size, and I do all of the tricks to see if it actually fits. Yep!

"Okay! Will you put these two away while I get redressed?" I ask her.

"Sure," I hand the two bigger dresses above the doorway, and she grabs them from the other side.

I quickly get re-changed, and we leave as soon as we buy the dress, that I hope Carlos likes. Maybe really likes.
