When Lilly got back up to the castle she ran to her dorm as she could feel her eyes tearing up. Why did she have to mess things up with Zach?! He was trying to tell her something but she just ruined it. She finally got to the common room after shouting the password, flung herself on her bed and sobbed into her pillow. Her sobs were too loud in her ears to notice the sound of someone throwing up in the bathroom opposite their dorm.
Lilly groggily opened her eyes as she fell to the ground in a stiff heap. "Oh damn." She cursed as she stood up and fell back down, her legs had gone numb. When she finally managed to stand up she looked around. Everything was normal, except the clock. It was 2pm. She had slept through lunch.
She walked to the bathroom and looked in the mirror. She jumped violently at her reflection. Her eyes were swollen, puffy and red, her cheeks were flushed deeply, her hair was a mess and she had mascara running down her face. Then she remembered why she was upset.
"Awh. This is gonna take a while to sort out." She moaned to her reflection, trying to restrain herself from thinking of Zach.
She went back to her dorm and picked up random clothes and her make up bag- she didn't even look what clothes she had chosen.
Once she had make her skin look less blotchy, wiped off the leftover make up and added some pink lip gloss she tried to tame her hair but it wasn't working. "Guess you're going up then" she told it as she grabbed her big clip, twirled her hair up and put it in place. Then she turned to the clothes she had grabbed. The majority of her clothing was currently in the laundry so she would have to go with whatever she picked up.
She shuffled through them and she sighed as she saw what she had. A blue checked shirt, batman t shirt and denim shorts. "Oh great. Superhero-obsessed, denim wearing moose for me it is." She said as she started to get dressed. Her father always used to tell her that mooses liked check shirts even though she didn't believe it. Really, she didn't look too bad.
She went back to the dorm to drop off her make up bag and noticed a heap under the covers in Annah's bed she hadn't noticed earlier, well she had been half asleep.
"What do you think you're doing??" She asked as she pursed her lips and raised her eyebrows at the heap now showing a face looking up at her. Annah wasn't asleep.
"Oh. I was just... Tired." Her voice was thick as if she had a cold.
"How come you never turned up las- Oh never mind." Lilly said grumpily. She was tired of arguing. "Let's just go down for food."
"Ooh. Yes! I'm starving." Annah answered, unusually enthusiastic she never ate much at lunch. She preferred deserts more. She jumped up from her bed. That was when Lilly saw what Annah was wearing.
An oversized jumper with leggings. Lilly just stared. Annah never wore huge clothes like that. She loved fluffy, fitted jumpers with skinny jeans.
Something wasn't right.
