Isaac went off to Eastborough in the fall, I was worried I’d see him around over Christmas break, but if he came back at all, he didn’t wander near our house.

I actually went to school with Hadley, sort of anyway, she was friends with Paloma, maybe still are, I wouldn’t really know.

I just thought it might be weird, especially with my siblings, Elias, Julius, and Zilla being students here. The Counselors that do scheduling don’t really care about any of that though.
