5 Days of Solitaire: #3


Blue boy, worried about the world's eyes
Worried every time the sun shines
Worried about his haircut
Calm down, sweetheart, grow up




Becky Allen, 23rd December


(16:43)

Lauren Romilly
bro you around?

Becky Allen
Yeah man what’s up?

Lauren Romilly
ok
like
what the sam hill did you get for tori for christmas

Becky Allen
Ah we told each other what we wanted – she got me a pair of leggings and I got her a DVD

Lauren Romilly
oh
ugh
that’s a good idea
i should have done that
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh

Becky Allen
Lauren
It’s the 23rd December
Our present exchange is tonight lol

Lauren Romilly
i am aware of this
WHAT DO I DO

Becky Allen
YOU BE PREPARED AND BUY PRESENTS FOR YOUR FRIENDS IN ADVANCE YOU CRETIN

Lauren Romilly
IT’S TOO LATE FOR THAT REBECCA I’M IN THE DEEP END

Becky Allen
Omg

Lauren Romilly
she’s so difficult to buy for, that’s the thing
like, she doesn’t really have any specific interests or anything
i can’t just be like ‘here’s a joy division tshirt’ like with evelyn or ‘here is something harry potter themed’ like with rita

Becky Allen
Yeah I just think she’s that sort of person tbh

Lauren Romilly
what does she actually do with her time

Becky Allen
Haha i have no idea.
Maybe she’s a teen spy in her spare time

Lauren Romilly
well she’s definitely secretive enough to be a spy

Becky Allen
She’s just a private person i think
Like she just enjoys having her own time to do what she wants to do
She doesn’t have to share it with everyone

Lauren Romilly
i’m just so intrigued!!!!!!
i honestly don’t think i’ve had a one to one conversation with her since the summer
she seems kind of different :\

Becky Allen
Well yeah
Like fair enough, she’s had some stuff happen

Lauren Romilly
oh with her brother??

Becky Allen
Yeh

Lauren Romilly
is any of that actually true? ben hope was saying he thought it was made up
apparently her brother is a bit of an attention seeker

Becky Allen
No it’s completely true
It’s really serious.

Lauren Romilly
how’d you know?

Becky Allen
Tori wouldn’t lie about something that serious.
Come on lauren

Lauren Romilly
well i don’t know do i haha
we don’t even really talk anymore
it’s really weird, it feels like we weren’t even friends in the first place

Becky Allen
Mate that’s not true!!
We’ve all been friends since year 7
Don’t cancel all of that out just because she’s having a tough time

Lauren Romilly
surely if we were friends then she’d want to talk about it with us

Becky Allen
Just think about that for a minute

Lauren Romilly
what??

Becky Allen
That’s just a really stupid thing to say

Lauren Romilly
why?

Becky Allen
Just because we’re friends doesn’t mean she wants to reveal all of her problems
I’m sure you have stuff you don’t tell us
She’s not obliged to tell us anything if she doesn’t want to.

Lauren Romilly
maybe talking about it would help though

Becky Allen
Yeh maybe but you can’t just make people talk about stuff like that

Lauren Romilly
if she just tried then she’d probably feel a bit better

Becky Allen
I don’t think that’s how it works lol

Lauren Romilly
mm
has she talked to you about it?

Becky Allen
Yeh but to be fair she is closer to me than anyone else

Lauren Romilly
yeah that’s true
i don’t really know what to do

Becky Allen
You don’t have to do anything

Lauren Romilly
what i should just let her drift away?? :\

Becky Allen
Yeh if it comes to that
Things are already changing now we’re in sixth form... friendships are splitting up and groups are changing. That’s just life I guess.

Lauren Romilly
that’s really sad man :\

Becky Allen
Yeah but she might come back

Lauren Romilly
mm
haha this is getting too deep

Becky Allen
Lol yeh

Lauren Romilly
what the gordon bennett am i going to get her for christmas

Becky Allen
Haha
Just get her chocolate

Lauren Romilly
fair

Becky Allen
Still need a lift later?

Lauren Romilly
yes please!!!

Becky Allen
Cool see you at 7ish xxx

Lauren Romilly
will do!! xxx

Author's note:

day three of the 5 Days of Solitaire!!! we are over half way through. i ADORE this one. i went into it expecting it to just be a vaguely amusing conversation between becky and lauren but it turned into probably the most passive aggressive conversation i've ever written. becky doesn't really show herself to be a great person throughout a lot of solitaire so i hope this redeems her a little bit - she makes some wrong decisions and can sometimes be blind when it's not a good time to be blind but she does understand a lot of things. (i love becky). and lauren... well. i never liked her very much tbh.

hope you're looking forward to day four tomorrow! you might be able to guess the final two protagonists now...

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE EVE
