Another month passed, along with a few weeks and a couple days. Juliet wrote a lot less often and when she did write she sounded sad. Things were really bad at her school. Everyone seemed to hate her. Brooke ans Dylan kept spreading false rumors. Mum thought Juliet was a big trouble maker and Dad was hardly ever home because he worked so much.
Things at Hogwarts were just fine I knew that everyone around me was having a good time, but struggled to to find anyone to cheer me up or spend time with me. One day I walked into the library and I saw Drew snuggling with some girl. At first I didn't pay attention, but then I noticed something big. The girl wasn't just some random girl, it was Robin. I stared at them in awe. Robin looked up and girlishly waved at me, then rested her head back on Drew's chest. I made a sound in the back of my throat. I wanted to warm Robin. I wanted to yank her away from Drew, but what was I supposed to do. I wasn't even friends with Robin, and I could just get in between them and pull Robin away. So I slowly walked away and thought about what drama there would be in my room when Drew was over her.
When I got back to my room after dinner, I saw Robin talking to Krissy and Janie on her bed.
"He was doodling all this romantic stuff on my homework and holding my hand. It was amazing, and he smelled like flowers. Then he took me into the common room and we snuggled and talked on a couch," Robin gushed.
"Oh my god!" Krissy squealed, "You have a boyfriend!"
"I don't know if we're officially a couple," Robin blushed.
"You are," Janie said and Krissy nodded.
"I swear, I thought he was going to kiss me!" Robin squealed.
Krissy and Janie squealed along with her. I rolled my eyes and decided to interject.
"Are you talking about Drew?" I asked, walking over to the three girls.
"Yeah, do you know him?" Robin asked me excitedly.
"Well kind of," I started, searching for the right words to say. "I don't think you should get too attached to him,"
"What?" Robin asked.
I took a deep breath. "Earlier this year Drew told me he loved me. he hugged me, held my hands, helped me study, and drew hearts and couples on our homework. I actually thought that he loved me. Then, I saw him flirting with another girl. They may have even kissed, I left before they did though. What I'm trying to say is that Drew is a player. I've seen him with an new girl every week or so, and know that he's just going to hurt you,"
The three girls turned to face me. Robin looked very upset.
"You're just lying. I know that you were never with Drew. You're just jealous that I have a love life and you don't," Robin said.
"You don't even have any friends, it's obvious that Drew never liked you," Krissy said in Robin defense.
"Yeah," Janie echoed.
I felt like I had been slapped.
"Whatever," I grumbled, "But don't say I didn't warn you,"
I climbed into my bed and drew the curtains around it. I listened to the girls talk about me and Robin's love life, as if I wasn't even there. I hadn't gotten a letter from Juliet in a little more than a week. The last letter I got sounded sad. Maybe Juliet was sick of me asking for advice. Maybe she thought I was a wimpy loner like Krissy and Robin. I stayed in bed for a very long time. I only got out of bed to grab a small dinner and change before going to sleep.
