THANK YOU FOR THIS (the lowest I've gotten so far!): Your sets were the 47th most viewed yesterday!
FRIDAY 23RD: Thorne's Annual End-of-Summer dance is tonight, so wear your fancy dresses and try not to cause too much drama. This event will be held at the Thorne gymnasium.

I walked into the gym, half-expecting Luke to come up to me and salute me. Because he apparently still didn't think we were boyfriend and girlfriend. We were just "friends". I'd show him what a real friend was.

I glanced around. Sofia and Willa were nowhere to be seen, but I spotted Summer over by the punch table, looking bored. I figured I should talk to her, since I hadn't even barely talked to her before. 

"Hey Summer," I smiled as I came up to her. What was wrong with me? I was being nice to people now and smiling at them?

Summer sized me up, taking in my ensemble. Personally, I thought it was one of my best yet. 

"Interesting dress," Summer said finally. 

I took that as a compliment, saying, "thanks." Summer sniffed in reply, taking a sip of her nearly empty cup.

I nudged her elbow. "Hey, did you spike that?"

Summer looked quizzically at me, wondering if she should trust me. "Well..."

"Oh my God, I need a drink. Please," I admitted, holding out my own cup. Summer discreetly pulled out a flask and poured some clear liquid into my fruity punch. I took a sip, relaxing a little.

Until, that is, Sofia and Willa came over. Willa wore a scowl while Sofia looked indifferent, as if she didn't know exactly what was going on. As if. Her and Willa were besties now. 

"What are you doing?" Willa asked Summer with a sneer. 

Summer raised an eyebrow. "Standing. And you?"

I stifled a laugh at Summer's comeback as Sofia looked on at me awkwardly. I turned away from her, looking from Willa to Summer.

"You think you're so cool, you think everyone loves you," Willa said with a haughty gaze.

"I believe that would be you, not me," Summer fired back. "I know who doesn't like me. Do you?"

Willa gasped. "You are such a b*tch!"

Time for me to go. I wasn't about to get in the middle of this. Especially when I wasn't buddy-buddy with either of them.

I nodded at Summer before I left, but she didn't notice. I was brushing past Sofia when she caught my arm. I sighed, looking back at her. She pulled me over to a nearby table. I realized barely anyone was here yet and apparently we were really early or maybe really late.

"Can I talk to you?" Sofia asked innocently. It was all an act, I was sure.

"What." I said. Not a question.

"Why don't you want to talk to me?" Sofia blurted, pouting like a little girl. I about got up and walked away. Almost.

"Sof, I can't do this right now," I snapped, closing my eyes. "I just can't."

"You're not the only one having boy problems," Sofia said, her lower lip trembling. "Don't act like everything is all about you."

"It's not!" I cried. Esther and Rose looked over at us, their eyes wide. I shot them a look and they turned away. "Look, we're just not on the same level anymore. I mean, it's like we've switched places."

"What's that supposed to mean?" Sofia asked, scoffing and sniffling at the same time. Seriously, she was crying over Josh in public? God, she really was a hot mess. 

"Figure it out," I told her pointedly, getting up from the table and briskly walked toward the gym doors. 

This dance was certainly not turning out nicely.

Just as I opened the door, Nichelle was coming through. Startled, she blinked her eyes a few times, mouth open. "Oh, Addy! You're already leaving?"

I took a breath of the night air, so close. "I just need a minute."

"Do you want me to come with you?" Nichelle peered up at me. "Are you okay?"

I shook my head. "It's okay, Nichelle. I just... have some things to deal with."

Nichelle eyed me. "Well, if you're sure."

"Positive," I answered.

Then I pushed past her, looking up into the stars and wondering when I ever got out of this place, if I would ever see any of these people again.
