I got an email invitation about a sleepover in the common room. I brushed my hair, and put it in a high ponytail. I pulled on a t-shirt and shorts and stuck my feet into comfy slippers. I grabbed my sleeping bag and walked down the shiny floor and walked into thee common room. I grabbed a water and sat on the couch, waiting for other people to arrive.
I was super pumped about the sleepover. With ease, I tidily packed my toothbrush, hairbrush and other necessities into a cute, mauve-colored duffel. I was wearing adorable silk pajamas covered in monkeys, and they almost looked like I could pull them off in class. I had bought this pair on the Forever 21 website, and had it shipped overnight to Canterwood solely for the sleepover. I loved being able myself, but I had swore to myself that I'd stay completely down to earth. I found myself entering the common room, clutching my bag and a sack of chips as I entered. I noticed that Violet was the only one here, so I sighed, smiling. Hey. I say quickly, tossing my bag onto one of the leather couches and stuffing the chips into the cupboard. When did you get here?
I walked in wearing a pretty one shouldered red shirt with a simple gold neck with a large silver horseshoe on the end. I also wore skinny jeans and black ballet flats I had tooth brush and pajamas tucked under my arm I saw Sammie and Violet already there i know for a fact that we hadn't had great start because I was friends with Skye and Sky had made a lot of mistakes but I couldn't think of that know. I walked and smiled brightly and said, "Hey sammie. Hey Violet how are you guys you both look awesome"

When I see Sammie walk in, I smile. "Hey, just 5 minutes ago." I said, watching curiously as she stuffed the chips into the cupboard. "Do you not like those chips?" I ask, putting my phone away. Before we were able to continue the convo, jenna walked in. I half smiled at her, playing with my hair. Since Jenna had moved in, It was awkward between us, since she had kinda been skyes best friend. when Sammie made the comment about her outfit, I tryed not to smirk, flipping through my magazine.
I blushed and said, "I know sorry I was worried I was running late because I was meeting with my adoption advisor for a monthly check up and didn't have time to change I rushed here but i'll go nip into the bathroom and change now"

I look up when she said that. God, this girl played for sympathy. I shot Sammie a knowing glance. She probably just forgot to wear pj's. "Do whatever you want." I say, not even looking at her. I just get up off the couch and go kneel next to Sammie. As I flip through the movies with her, I whisper "How can a girl in the foster system go to one of the best schools in the country?" I said, just tired of this charity act. I look at the back of a movie, waiting for a response.
I was walking away but snapped around when I heard what Violet said and snapped my voice icy cold "Look I grew up moving from family to family do know just how scary it is to be forced to live with a strange family? My real parents hate me mother got herself pregnant at 16. Yea my foster family do everything your parents do that's great but their not my real parents their strangers I want my real parents not a pair of strangers who buy me everything I ever wanted just to me happy I'd rather have tatty gross clothes then the ones i'm wearing now I don't want to be rich I want to be normal" I stood there and swept a blonde strand of hair out of my face and sighed.

I pretended not to hear Jenna, now more annoyed then ever. "This looks good. War horse." I say, passing it to Sammie so she could take a look. I look at Jenna coldly. "I thought you were changing. Eavesdropper." I was angry at her being emotional. We all had problems.
I took a deep breath before turning and walking out the door I didn't bother look back once I was out the door I started running my feet slapping against the ground I ignored the fact that it was now pouring rain and it was thundering with thunder.

I watched as she ran out the door. "Does she expect us to follow her?" I ask, annoyed. I watch her run out in the pouring rain. "Why would she do that?" I mumble. "I'll be right back" I tell Sammie. I grab my umbrella and run after her. It's almost dark now, and by the time I catch up with her I;m out of breath. "Jenna, you LIVE in orchard, and curfew is 10 minutes from now. Why are you running?"
I stopped and said, "you hate me you and Sammie you both hate me you think i'm lying" I sniffed and wiped my eyes. For once I looked nothing like the girl who dressed in fancy clothes I looked like a normal kid caught in the rain my jeans were splattered with mud and shirt was soaked right through my necklace was cracked and dirty.

"Well, then stop acting like you are!" I said. "Look Jenna, we all have problems. But you can't blame everything on your situation, or your going to get no where in life. Now, you can be caught breakiing curfew and likely get detention, or you can go back in there, and for once act like a girl whos not traumatized by everything everyone does." With that, I turn and walk back into the dorm. "Well, I don't know if she is coming." I told Sammie, rolling my eyes and sighing.
I took and deep breath and walked back into the dormitory and I went to bathroom and changed into my pajamas I had o makeup or jewelry on and I said, "So...What movie are we going to watch?" I forced a bright smile on face.
