narrated by: Lulu

Jake moved into his dorm this month with his dormmate and previous bandmate, Monroe. He’s taking a few classes to get him prepared for the college sciences and math as he’s a master of the written language, but not so much the practical. I’m not a master of any academics, so he’s got my admiration.

He’s been coming home more frequently then any of us expected. I think he’s homesick, although he’s playing it off that he’s here for me. I admit, being an only child at home isn’t the easiest gig. I’m glad to have his company on my days off.

narrated by: Lulu

When Simon found out about me and our boss, Clayton, I thought for certain that he would rat me out. But it’s been a month and nothing. I never told Clayton about him finding out, I didn’t want to scare him away, and now I’m glad that I didn’t.

We start school at the end of the month, and I’m already stressing about how I will see Clayton outside of work. Right now, Mom and Dad leave for work, and Jake usually wanders to a friends so I have the house to myself. Clayton swings by after I’ve given him the clear, and I make a run for his amazing, red pick-up truck. When he isn’t around, I totally fangirl squeal over his wheels.

My Everything (Browning – Traver Wedding)

The guests were arriving, the skies were clear with the sound of baby birds nesting far above in the ancient trees. Nadia was no longer concerned about what guests had arrived, and if there would be enough cake for everyone, she could only live in this moment. It felt that they’d worked towards this for years, from Luca first pining for her, and Lorelei had tried being a wingman. Yet it seemed surreal.

narrated by: Rachael

I’m finishing up my junior year of high school, unexpectedly it has brought a sliver of a rift between me and Lulu. Our parents aren’t the type of parents to put “Honor Roll Student” on the back of their mini van. We don’t even own a mini van. But that hasn’t stopped others from giving me high accolades, and Lulu taking notice.
