17. Chapter 17- (Christmas Eve Part 1)
The next day Annah was acting like nothing had happened, that she hadn't vomited. She was cheery, happy and her usual hyper self.
On the outside.
Lilly watched her closely and saw her when she thought no one was looking. She had a sad glint in her eye, which got glazed over when around people, and once Lilly had seen a tear escape her eye and fall into her lap. Annah quickly brushed it away before anyone saw.
Lilly was so confused and didn't know what to do or say. She feared whatever she did would upset and anger Annah- the last thing she wanted was an argument with her best friend.
But she knew Annah was hiding something from her. So she decided to confront her.
Annah was sat in the grounds by herself, leaning against a tree and sketching on a piece of parchment with one hand resting on her stomach. Lilly casually walked up to her and said next to her.
"Hey." She said.
"Hi." Annah looked up to see who it was.
"Um. Yeah? You always ask me this Lilly, why?" Annah narrower her eyes.
"You threw up yesterday and you ask why I check on you? Are you serious?"
"Yeah. I'm serious. Worry about you're own problems. Stay out of mine. It's Christmas Eve. I don't want to fight Lilly." Annah said sadly.
"Neither do I." Lilly replied.
"Well I'm going up to our dorm so once you've decided to get off my case you know where to find me."
Annah packed up her drawing things and walked off, not looking back once. Lilly sighed tiredly and dropped her shoulders. She needed someone to talk to. She needed Zach.
