Winter break, and Elodie found herself back at her Dad’s house. There had been a growing animosity between the girls, but it stemmed from Elodie. She couldn’t quite explain the reason, because she had won the affections of their mutual crush, Kai Browning. Perhaps it was how Shira had simply moved on, always content, which irked Elodie.
She missed sharing a bedroom with her big sister, Scarlett, and she realized those days were in the past; she would never share a room with her again. Now she was stuck with perfect Shira.
She called Kai up to arrange a date with him, insisting it wasn’t too early to meet, and being rather loud on the phone. Shira rolled over, trying to maintain sleep.
