Wednesday: Turns out the recent death of Easton student Caroline was not a drug overdose. Detectives suspect foul play but we were all gone all week. They want to question us in the dinning hall today and there will be refreshments. Since there is a murder mystery going around Head Master Crom has forbid us from leaving campus without an administrator and will be having a meeting later on in the day with us.


All day, everyone was being interrogated by the investigators of Caroline's death. Caroline who? Only a few people knew of her. Mari came to me at lunch time. after she asked the Billings Girls (mostly Yas ans Noora) to be excused and told me how she was interrogated.

"That's /cra/-zy!" I said, growing a little angry as I took a bite of a strawberry. "They can't just go around and do that... I mean, don't we have some privacy rights?"

Mari shrugged as she sat down next to me.. "I don't know. I didn't mind the questions that much since I knew I had nothing to do with her death."

"So it wasn't a drug overdose after all." I said.

"Nope, I think she got murdered." Mari whispered, nodding her head.

"Really?" I whispered back. "But who would have done it? All the girls were at St. Barts and I don't think anyone else was left at Easton except for ..." I tried to think.

Mari sighed. "The boys."

I made a face. "I don't believe it. The boys couldn't have done it. Maybe it was a teacher."

"A /teacher/?" Mari got up. 

"I honestly don't know. Who knows, maybe the whole thing is just a rumor." I said, looking up because now she was standing. 

"Like the rumor about Chase cheating on you?" Mari asked, knowingly. 

I didn't want to admit it because I didn't have all the facts. Chase could be 100% innocent. But now there was a doubt planted into my brain and I know I should just talk to him, but I don't want to bring it up in case it's entirely untrue because Chase is the sweetest thing ever and that might ruin us even more. 

I ignored Mari's comment and continued to eat my lunch. Mari got the hint. 

"MARI! Marrrrri!" I heard Clio's voice. Mari apologized and left. She ran back to Clio and the rest of the Billings crew. Yas smiled with satisfaction as she saw me getting dissed by my own friend. But, I was getting used to it. That's why I tried to make the most of my time with Mari. Because you never know when one of the Billings will call her name and she'll be taken away for the rest of the day.

I saw Oceane later. She told me about her and Jeremy and then she was gone too. She wasn't at the meeting in the afternoon either. I was beginning to get worried about her until I saw Poppy.

"Hey, Poppy." I said, trying to sound cheerful. 

"This whole thing is creeping me out. I want to leave Easton while this whole Caroline-case is going on." she said.

I nodded. "Same here." I sighed, "But we can't leave the campus without an administrator and that would be a bore."

Suddenly, when everything seemed like it was going good (vacation in St. Barts), everything went wrong. First, one of my best-friends turned into a part-time friend. Then, I learned that Chase might be cheating on me. In addition to all that, this Caroline-bomb has been dropped on us all and we're all freaking out. Great. Life at Easton is just... great.
