( seriously, I hate this set :/)
Friday, 19th August: The Initial list is released.
It was a bad day for me. Ever since I woke up it was supposed to be all bad. And then, when I walked across the campus I saw the first girls whispering. What was going on today?
I got to the truth when I found a lost piece of paper right on the ground. "The list" was its headline. I had a sense of foreboding. Somewhere in my mind and somehow I had slight memories on these two words. Right, it was Gossip Girl. It was a routine for every new student in the beginning of a year to answer some questions about yourself and some random ones for the student services so that they can advise you which club would suit you best. In my opinion, this was just an excuse to help Gossip Girl to get further information about a person.
Yes, it might be that I already sound so routined with this girl. No one knows her and though my move to London was just a couple of weeks ago, I knew that sooner or later you will get confronted with this person. I sighed and grabbed the paper and sat down on a bench.
"Let's see if you do your job well, Gossip Girl." I said with a sigh and began to skim the texts for my name. Finally, I found it:
"Elizabeth Ivory Mountrachet
Welcome to Notting Hill Elizabeth, I’m Gossip Girl. You said you don’t know much about me so let me explain. I rule this school and I have worked hard for this position, so don’t listen to some of these airheads who think I’m doing this for a laugh. Yes I admit sometimes I become thoroughly amused with what goes on in my school and love revealing this drama to the school. Every year a new Gossip Girl is chosen in secret and this year it was me – lucky huh? Anyway, being Gossip Girl means I’ve come to learn a lot about human nature and based on this experience I think you’re not saying all you could about your character. I like you kid. Not because of what you’ve told me but because I know I’m going to find something out about you that will shake up this school before things become dull – probably unintentionally but oh well.
I was rather shocked than amused about this. How could this girl be so clever? I always thought her 'assumptions' are based on stupid outer appearances, where's nothing behind.
A burning hot pain rushed through my chest. I felt hurt. And I knew this girl would not give up until she would find something that would ruin my good reputation.
