November 22: Heidi is hosting a ball. But not any ordinary ball. It's a masquerade ball, full of glitz, vintage masks, and glittery gowns. So start all the drama you want, cause no will no it's you.
I looked around in the big, crowded hall. It looked amazing. There were all the important people who looked gorgeous and everything was light by chandeliers.
Perfect, I thought to myself.
“Heidi, the party is perfect", Liz said.
“How do you know I’m Heidi?”, I laughed. “But I’m glad you could make it."
Liz phone rang and she talked to Drew. This was way too slow.
“So, Liz,” I said. “You’re on our side of this little battle, right?”
She turned towards me and tried to find out what I really thought. Behind my mask, this wasn't very easy. I looked directly into her eyes.
Liz just had to join us. I didn't want to act against her when it came to the big things. She was nice and didn't do any harm to me by now.
Liz hesitated. “Well, I don’t know. I’m definitely not against you. I just…I don’t know. No offense, but it seems ineffective. I mean, nothing’s changing.”
Maybe that's true, a little voice in my head whispered.
“But things will have to change at some point. Don’t you want to be on the winning side? Besides, all of your friends are on this side", I pointed out.
“I know", Liz nodded. “I definitely have nothing against you girls in principle.”
That was harder than I'd thought. And then, Drew interrupted us. Liz and him stood up and walked away. Shoot!
I sipped some champagne. This got kinda boring. I didn't have a date since Adam behaved that badly.
I blushed and shuddered thinking of this disgusting scene.
He'd tried to call me, but I hadn't answered one call yet. I just didn't know what to say to him. It was better to know what was really going on, but without knowing it, I'd been a bit happier.
"Do you wanna dance with me?", a guy in a tie and with a blue, simple mask asked. I could only see his green, shining eyes and his brown hair, nothing else.
"Why not?", I poured and followed him to the dance floor.
He swung me around. This guy was a damn good dancer.
"What's you're name?"
"I'm David, Heidi", he answered.
"Where do you know...?"
"Well, everybody knows you. Everybody saw the film on MTV yesterday."
I blushed and stopped to dance.
"I don't wanna talk to you about that", David said. "You just seemed so... sad and lonely. I wanted some other thoughts to plop in your head", he smiled.
"Oh well, okay then", I stuttered.
Suddenly, everybody turned towards the door. The girls, means Sasha, Roxy and Co. ran after a blonde girl who wore Labella's dress.
"Labella?!", I shouted and stared at her.
"This sl*t stole our purses!", Sasha explained.
Everything went too fast. Labella was caught by the police. She seemed so... innocent and like she knew nothing. Absolutely confused...
"This can't be true. She can't be that stupid", I whispered.
"What do you mean?", David asked.
And then I told him about everything. About this damn war. About Adam.
He just listened.
"I can't do this anymore", I mumbled.
"You don't have to. Do you really wanna know my opinion?"
"Well, you didn't have to go out with that @sshole. You don't have to fight against those girls. Really? These are problems you caused yourself."
I couldn't say anything. He was so right.
"I don't think that it's wise to punch each other, to fight... it'll get worse and worse!"
Worse... worse, I thought. Oh my god!
"Thank you, David!", I said and stood up. I had to talk to the others.
