It started raining. As if the wait couldn't get any worse. It was 11.30pm. We'd called Dominic a few more times, but got no answer. Amber's breathing got worse again. She kept suggesting Dominic had been caught, but I believed he was just taking his time. He was being cautious.

We didn't have coats, so the October rain continued to pour down. At this stage, my hair was getting frizzy and tangled. Laine used her flannel top as a good so her hair was safe. Amber didn't care about hers, or at least didn't seem to.

The gate opened and we rushed in quickly. We had to help Amber through, but then her breathing calmed and she was okay.

"What took you so long?" Amber demanded, rinsing her hair onto Dominic's shoes.

"The receptionist lady had the lights on the gates, then one of the teachers kept parading around. He's only just gone inside now!" Dominic replied as he closed the gate.

Amber leaned in to hug him. He was wearing his pyjamas and dressing gown, so he wrapped her in his gown and pulled her closer to him. "Thank you."

Laine and I decided to head up to the dorm and let them talk for a bit. I had a quick shower so that my hair wouldn't be frizzy in the morning. Laine fell asleep in her clothes with all of her makeup on. She'd regret that in the morning. I tucked up into bed and switched my lamp on. I had a scroll of Instagram. Amber came walking in just before I switched my lamp off. I said goodnight, she said goodnight, then I fell asleep.

I woke up in the morning feeling refreshed. Laine woke up to red lipstick stains and black mascara smudges on her clean, white pillowcases and down her face. "Fuckkkkkkk," I heard her grunt.

I laughed as I looked across to her bed. "That's why I had a shower when we got back."

"I was exhausted," she cried as she peeled off her damp tights, "I'm definitely getting a shower now though. I smell like wet dog and sweat."

Once I was changed, I headed down to the fountain to meet my friend Lewis Gerber. He was the first friend I made when I could speak proper English. He never got to laugh at my awkward stuttering stage. That saves me some embarrassment when I see him. However, he did see me when I first tripped down the large staircase down to the main hallway, so I cry every time he mentions that.

"Hey Lewis!" I said as I hugged him.

"Hey Sukes, you ready to get a coffee?" He laughed.

We walked down to the little coffee shop down the road. It was my favourite place to go with Lewis. We always order the most random things on the menus, and just have a good old laugh. Lewis and I are in a few lessons together, but otherwise I don't see him much.

"So how is life going? Is Kaito back home yet?" Lewis asked, sipping his strawberries and cream frappe. It was his favourite drink to order.

"No, still missing," I said as I stirred the straw around my drink, "I think my parents will give up looking for him. He's always getting into trouble."

Lewis nodded. "God knows how your parents ended up having a troublemaker like Kaito, and a perfect daughter like you."

I felt my cheeks blushing. "How are your family, anyway?"

"They're alright I think. Dad's having a few problems with the business, but other than that, all sounds good."

I nodded. Just as I was trying to think of something to say, Lena and her boyfriend Cody came in. They waved, so I gestured them to come over. I've been friends with Lena Bailey since we got back to school last month, and though we haven't been friends for ages, I like her company. Lewis and her boyfriend, Cody Holmes, get on well too, so I knew Lewis wouldn't mind.

The boys sat next to each other, chatting and laughing about the football game on Wednesday night against Youngs Academy, which is about 17 miles away from Estal. Lena sat next to me and asked how I was. General chit chat.

"So, you and Lewis huh?" Lena whispered.

I laughed and elbowed her. "Just friends Len, just friends."

Lena winked at me. "So you keep telling me."

I shook my head and rolled my eyes. Are girls and boys not allowed to just be friends anymore?
