“Hey Lou! Where’s El?” I asked walking towards the booth.
“She left for the ladies room.” He said. “But she’s taking awhile.”
“I’ll find her.” I walked towards the ladies room just as El walked out with… Reyna? How did that happen? Or when did that happen? I walked over.
“El!” I called out. She looked up and waved at me. She turned to Reyna and… hugged her? Then she came over.
“Hey Dani! Where’s Perrie? We all have to talk about something.” She said.
“She’s at the bar I think. Can you tell me what happened?” I said.
I looked at her. “Why were you with Reyna? And why are you wearing different clothing?”
That’s what we have to talk about.” She said, then walked to the bar to find Perrie.
When Dani and I found Perrie, we decided to go back to the restroom to talk. We first made sure nobody was in there before we locked the door.
“Okay. Why are we here?” Perrie asked me.
“El? What’s going on?” Dani asked. They didn’t know how Reyna actually is. They have to know right now.
“Not long ago, I was almost raped by a few guys. And I would have been if it wasn’t for Rey.” I said to my shoes. I looked up. The other girls were shocked.
“Well I feel bitchy right now.” Dani said.
“Liam and I were talking. We really underestimated her. I even kinda bad mouthed her a little bit. I feel even more like a bitch beause of when we first met her.” She confessed.
“Yeah. Zayn felt that way too.” Perrie said.
“Really?” she nodded.
“In his words, ‘she’s a slacker.’”
“No she’s not! You didn’t see how she handled all those guys!”
“El! We know. You’re defending her really well.” Dani said. We stayed silent for awhile.
“So what do we do?” Perrie asked.
“We get to know her, and include her in stuff we do.” I said.
“How? She’s sixteen!” Dani pointed out.
“Yeah, but she saved two out of three lives in one day. The least we could do is be nice to the girl who saved us.” I said.
“Yeah.” They agreed.
