Lilly and Annah got to the Great Hall and sat down at their table. There was still food on it from lunch. Lilly put a few sandwiches on her plate, poured herself some pumpkin juice and turned to face Annah. Her eyes widened as she looked at her. Annah had piled up her plate with several helpings of what looked like anything close to her.
"Um. Annah?" Lilly asked.
"Yeah?" She replied, her mouth already stuffed full with food.
"Are.. Are you okay?"
"Why wouldn't I be?" Annah frowned, taking a big gulp.
"Well. I never see you any more, you never, ever eat this much, you're in baggy clothes and you didn't turn up again last night. And, I think you've forgotten your shoe?"
"Oh don't worry. I lost my shoe. But really?! You're still thinking of last night?! Don't worry about me Lilly. Worry about yourself and Zach. I heard you argued huh?" Annah said, her cheeks flushed in anger and embarrassment as she quickly changed the subject back to Lilly.
"W-what?" Lilly said, shocked. "Where did you hear that?!"
Annah flushed darker but Lilly wasn't sure why. "Oh. Just. Around. You know. Word travels fast."
"Sure." But she was still suspicious.
"Oh come on Lilly! You've known me since forever and you think I'm lying?!"
"No. No I believe you." Lilly said. Even though she wasn't entirely sure it was the truth, Annah was definitely hiding something.
"So what do you want to do today?" Annah asked calmly.
"Well I have my book to finish and I need to watch the rest of season 3 of my show. You know how important it is to me."
"No. No more geeky anti social things. You're a teena-" Annah stopped mid-sentence and went pale.
"Annah are you okay?" She quickly recovered and looked at Lilly.
"Yeah. I'm fine. My... Tooth just hurt that's all." Annah said nonchalantly.
"Oh. Okay then."
"How about we just stay in the Common Room today? There's only a few days until Christmas and I don't feel like going anywhere today." Suggested Annah.
"Okay. Sure." Lilly replied.
Annah practically ran to the Common room she was walking so fast, Lilly had to skip steps to keep up with her.
"Um. Excuse me? Not everyone has long legs like you so there's no need to rub it in!" Lilly said.
"Huh? Oh. I just can't wait to sit down. I'm so tired."
"You just sat down to eat Annah?" Lilly asked. Annah either ignored her or didn't hear Lilly, she was miles away.
As soon as they got to the Common Room Annah quickly ran to the bathroom. Lilly followed slowly to see if she was okay. She knocked three times on the door.
"Annah?" Annah didn't answer.
She knocked three times again. "Annah!" Still no reply.
"Annah come on. What are you doing in there?" At that point her voice was drowned out by the sound of someone throwing up violently.
"Oh my gosh, are you okay?!" Lilly tried the handle but Annah had locked herself in. Lilly was getting worried and started to hammer on the door. Annah still wasn't responding.
