*Can we have a round of applause for Saphie? I wouldn't have been able to have written these, without her. Thank you so frigging much Kween. And Cherilee? I'm watching you... (inside joke) 👏👏👏
*Beaters are these sort of animals who can emit loud volume from their speaker like ears, and are hard to catch, often used at parties and as pets, to promote eco friendliness*
"I'm so sorry." Was all she could say.
"Ugh. Thanks." I said.
"Come on, the others must be waiting." I said.
We asked into the hall. I was glad to see that everyone was having a great time. Aerin was beatboxing with Finn, while Celeste and Danny were grooving near the speakers.
It was time for the elemental show. Mine and Flint's gift to Fawn, it was because mine and Flint's elements couldn't produce a heart necklace with Fawn's initials on it like Amare, or get her a secret, forbidden animal from the human realm.
"Ladies and Gentlemen! It's time for the grand finale! The….. drumroll please-" Saylis started as the Beaters drumrolled.
"The… Elemental Show!" Saylis announced.
Me and Flint walked from different sides, both of us cool and nonchalant. I raised my arms calling out to the ocean, the mist, and waterfalls. He did the same with hot things. We raised our arms and I made a waterfall, as he made his fireball or whatever. We lifted them up, and combined them as the Yin And Yang symbol. Since they were core opposites, they wouldn't mix, so they stayed like that the whole night as a remembrance.
Claps emerged from the audience.
Then they started dancing. Of course.
Good for them. Ugh, Clarice, now I have to pretend I'm super happy.
"Hi, dear! How are you?! Enjoying?" I asked grinning, totally not me, by the way.
"Oh- pure lovely! You haven't seen Amare, have you?" She asked.
"Uh, no, why? You both...uh- have something going on- huh?" I winked, all 'girly-like' but- hey! When you gotta get some info out, you gotta change personality!
"Uh- sort of, haha, what about you- and uh- Flinny?" She asked
"Uh- I'm not with Finn- we're just friends." I said, confused.
"Oh! I'm so sorry, I forgot to switch back, Flinny was my nickname for Flint, back when we were dating, haha."
Before I could finish my curse, Saylin screamed in my head.
'DON’T GET MAD IN FRONT OF HER SHE’S TRYING TO GET A REACTION OUT OF YOU! ACT LIKE THAT DIDN’T JUST MAKE YOUR BLOOD BOIL AND LIKE EVERYTHING IS FINE.' She commanded.
“Oh really! Well that’s pretty amature- I mean cute. Have fun watching us fall in love!”
But I seriously doubt that now.
Then I tossed my hair in her face and sashayed outta there.
Wow, okay that was-
Amazing? Beautiful? Talented?
'Interesting. Clarice looks like she wants to kill you. Plus-' Saylin squealed.
Plus? Saylin you there?
I looked around the room for her and found her blushing at Finn. I smirked.
Fawn stood in the center of the party with a microphone, “I just wanted to say thank you to Kenna, Flint and all of you for organising this party. I love you guys so much! Thank you!!!”
"But now…. It's time for…. Movie night! Me and Celeste remembered an old horror movie we all could watch! So, join our connection, and say 'Hey!' When you can hear us, okay?" Luke announced.
"Sure." Amare said not interested.
We joined the connection. We all lay down on the huge couch. Flint, again coincidentally, ended up next to me. Then I had to pretend everything was fine so I had to lay my head on his shoulder. Perfect- huh? Thank god, Saylis was next to me, and Finn on her lap. They were cute together. Nice. Clarice emerged from the kitchen, carrying popcorn. She lay down, her head resting on Amare's shoulder. Danny and Luke were next to each other; while Aerin winced at Clarice and Amare.
It was lame. A horror movie about a boyfriend killing his girlfriend, only to be haunted by her and her best friend's ghost, two years later, in the middle of a date, with the girl's sister.
So… no boyfriend then?
Aerin jumped at every jumpscare. Finn too. But the cutest thing was, his blush when he looked at Lis, after getting scared. Celeste and I were totally bored at the movie, Luke was happy. Looks like it was his choice.
The movie was over. Clarice's popcorn tasted horrible. Everyone applauded and started filing out of the room, leaving me, Saylin, and Finn alone to clean up.
“Well.” said Saylin through a sigh. “I guess we should get started then.”
She gestured to the mess left over after the party and gave us a weak smile, that looked more like a wince.
Finn, Saylin and I worked for an hour. A great party meant a great cleanup.
Soon there were four garbage bags filled with trash and the room looked squeaky clean.
“How did you clean your area so fast Lis?” asked Finn, glancing at the pristine white floor.
Saylin smiled. “Let’s just say I’m pretty experienced in the Clean-Up-And-Remove-Any-Traces-Of-A-Party-Before-Your-Parents-Come-Home department.”
We laughed then stopped when we noticed a figure standing at the doorway.
Finn and Saylin backed away and looked like they were mentally arguing with each other.
“Look Kenna I can tell you’re mad at me, I just don’t get why.” mumbled Flint, taking a cautious step closer to me.
When I didn’t back away, he continued.
“I’m sorry for whatever I did. Just- please, don’t be mad at me.”
I couldn’t believe it.
He doesn’t know what he did?
"HOW COULD HE?" yelled Saylin in my head.
It was slightly unsettling whenever she shadow-whispered, because she would use darkness and shadows to carry her consciousness over to the person she was talking to. I had gotten used to the darkness and chill in her voice, but the darkness in her voice as she spoke in my head right now was almost overwhelmingly cold.
“So let me get this straight.”
It took me a while to realise that Finn was the one who spoke. His voice was stern. I wasn’t used to seeing him and Saylin like this. He looked- protective.
Finn continued talking. “You came all the way here to apologise...and you don’t know what you’re apologising for? You hurt her, Flint.”
Flint’s eyes widened. “I- wha-?”
“Oh- so.. when you dropped me in the library, and left me on the floor to stare at the words written on the library wall with Luke? How long have you even known him? Three days? How long have I known you? YOUR WHOLE LIFE?! When you completely forgot I existed? Do I not mean anything to you? When Clarice, your ex, as I know now. She flirts with you and you grin that stupid, cute, stupid, grin of yours? As I’m standing right there? Not everyone is like you, Flint! NOT EVERYONE IS STONE COLD!” I ranted, tears strolling down my eyes.
"Oh. I- I'm so, so sorry, Kennie. And, Saylin, please don't look at me like that, you're really scary when you do that.”
I looked over at Lis to see what he was talking about. Her eyes- that were once silver- were now swirling with black shadows. She narrowed her eyes at Flint and shook her head. “We need to have a talk with you about how to treat a girl right. You mess with my friend? You mess with me.”
Flint sighed and tore and hand through his hair. “Look I’m sorry okay. I- I get you’re angry at me right now-”
"You- you walk into my best friend's life, and you talk to her, you flirt with her, you create thes- these moments with her. And then? Y-you just walk away. You go to Clarice. CLARICE! Is Clarice your standard? Well- if yes, then let's go, Kennie, I'm pretty sure we can find guys who lift you to the stars, and carry you to your room, and then don't drop you to the cold, hard, ground." Lis yelled.
"Yeah. I thought you were cool, man." Finn said, sighing.
"Kennie- I-” He started. His eyes met mine. They were full of sorrow.
"J-just leave me alone, Flint. Or- should I say; Flinny? Isn't that what she calls you? Anyway, I hope you get back with your ex." I said smiling even though tears streamed down my eyes.
And just like that he left.
I heard Finn mutter the word “douchebag” before he pulled me into a hug.
“It’ll be okay Kennie.” he whispered. "I hope so." I whispered back. He glanced at Saylin, shot her a small smile and a telepathic message through her shadow- which I noticed was still near his- then left.
I met Saylin’s eyes. The black was gone and her eyes were warm. “I’m so sorry about him Kennie.” She said and wrapped her arms around me.
I felt tears carve a path down my cheek. “I- I don’t know what to do Lis. I still like him.”
“Exactly. Which is why you have to talk to him. You two are perfect.”
I smiled up at her.
She smiled back. “Goodnight.”
