"Kenny, go away!" Queenie screams, throwing a pillow so hard it would hit me with as much force as a brick. It would, if I hadn't ducked just in time.
"Fine, just thought I'd let you know that Chess Pieces are here for you!" I say convincingly, like someone was actually here. Queenie automatically jumps out of bed, and runs out behind me, then darts down the stairs. I laugh as she looks around for any sign of intruders.
"I cannot believe you fell for that." I laugh, but Queenie turns around, dead serious.
"Don't joke about that." I put my hands up in defense, but she continues to lecture me.
"Do you not remember everything they did to you, to me, to this family?"
"Queenie, I do. Calm down." She wants to say more, but Zoe shows up, in a bathrobe with half her makeup done.
"Kenny-" Queenie is stopped midsentence.
"Queenie, stop. She's twelve." Zoe pushes me back to get down the stairs. Queenie grunts and turns around, stomping off.
The next few hours commence of dresses, hair, and makeup. Within hours, Brynna is married, and at about midnight Zoe has to drive me home from the reseption because everyone had too much to drink, and got a little PG-13.
