Our night was full of laughs and stories and some tears while we watched the episode of Glee where Finn dies. It’s a real tear jerker. Besides Finn dying, it was a great night. The last sleepover with Trish and Jayde for a while. It was sad to even think of it like that, but it was true, and I had to accept that.
In the morning, we all got dressed and did our hair and makeup. Though by makeup, I mean a little foundation and some mascara. We sang obnoxiously to any song that came on, even if we didn’t know the real lyrics. I remember hearing Jayde sing “So I’ll call you lazy!” Instead of “Call me maybe!” It was hilarious actually.
Before I knew it, we were all dancing around and using our hair brushes as microphones. I was bumped into the marble sink top. It hurt, but I was having too much fun too complain. I just bumped Trish back and laughed. We settled back down after about three songs though. We all carried on with getting ready, and then hopped in Jayde’s car and headed off to brunch. I didn’t really know where we were going, but Jayde said she found this little hidden restaurant that looked cool.
Sure enough, we stopped at a tiny little building that said “Breakfast N’ More” on a sign in the front. What a generic name.
We went inside and I flipped through the menu. Nothing really appealed to me, so I just decided to go with the classic pancake breakfast. Jayde ordered something with whole wheat bread and french toast sticks. It looked gross to me. Meg ordered scrambled eggs with bacon bits and cheese. I had saw that on the menu, and usually I liked cheesy scrambled eggs and bacon, but I wanted something normal instead. Normal just felt comforting at the moment. Trish ordered some sort of breakfast burrito that looked like actually dog crap.
As we ate, we talked about random things like usual, only now, it felt sadder. It felt like everything was crumbling and this would be our last gossip session for a while. I also couldn’t help but think what Trish would do if Meg and I actually got parts. I know Trish gets along with everyone and she likes Jayde, but we’ve always just been a trio. Trish, Meg and I have always stuck together. Sure Jayde is fine, but we’re still a trio that cannot be broken.
“Oh my god! Don’t choke!” Jayde patted me on the back after I about choked on my food from laughing so much.
“I just can’t picture Jenna dating someone like Aaron Macintire!” I said in between coughs.
“I know right! Not to be rude, but like… Ew!” Meg laughed along too.
“It would be a bit weird.” Trish hardly ever gossiped, but today was different.
“Hey! Wanna text Jade and Lea and tell them about New York?!” Meg blurted in a surprise attack.
A thought that had completely never even crossed my mind. I hadn’t really talked to Lea or Jade in any way since they left. Maybe a text here, postcard there. Nothing really though. Meg has had less contact with them than I have, so I was a little shocked to hear that she wanted to tell them. Maybe it was to rub it in their face or something, but Meg usually doesn’t do that. I wouldn’t ever want to do that either.
I really didn’t even know where Jade and Lea were. They obviously never came back from Germany, and if they did it wasn’t back home. For all I know they could be dead in Africa because a lion ate them. I really hadn’t a single clue as to what they were up to. I didn’t even check Instagram or Snapchat for their pictures either.
I decided, as did Meg, to whip out my phone and text them both. I sent the text and ended it with ‘What r u up 2? Details plz!’ And boy did I get all the details! It took twenty minutes to get a response from them. They congratulated us, then sent a huge text about what they were up to. They must still be together somehow then. And for some reason, I knew that would be the case.
