????WRITTEN BY HOSSY RICH (HOSSANA)????
Blue: yes Cindy. I’m in the C dorm too.
Cindy: I know right. We’re going to be doing everything together. We could attend classes together, eat together, play and we could even be given jobs in the same place. Awesome!
Blue smiled as she walked closer to her and looked around her bed
Cindy: where is your luggage?
Blue : uhhh, it’s not here right now
Cindy: ( talking really fast) what? Where is it? It has to be here right? Cause we are not allowed to live this place except with permission and you must have a genuine reason. And I don’t think the officers will believe you if you tell them that you didn’t come with your luggage. Who does that?
Blue: whoah! Is this how you talk fast?
Cindy: yes. When I’m nervous or scared or frightened or paranoid or super excited
Blue: wow. Well my mother is with my luggage
Cindy: your mom? I hope you also know that outsiders are only permitted here once in a week and that’s every Saturday.
Blue: she’s also in the service school. The cooks section
Cindy: oh that’s a relief. Now since you don’t have anything doing now, let’s go take a look at my room, it’s next door
Before Blue could say Jack, she was already being pulled along by Cindy.
Her legs were just moving non uniformly.
Their got next door and entered the room, it was just the same size as Blue’s. With equal number of bunk beds
Cindy pointed to one at the left side of the room
Cindy : that’s mine
They went there and Blue sat down, her legs needed rest
Cindy kept showing her her things and telling her stories.
Blue began to like her, she reminded her so much about Rainbow. Both of them of course, were fun to be with. And somehow, Cindy looked a little bit irresponsible and silly especially with the way she talked.
Blue: Cindy, I’m hungry. What do you humans eat?
Oh no! That was a mistake
She stared at Cindy in shock. But fortunately, the girl was just talking about something that she couldn’t hear what Blue said properly
Cindy : silly you. I’m not yet a woman. I’m just 19. But I do have some candy bars that we young ladies could eat. I always have candy with me cuz it rhymes with my name…. Cindy….. Candy…… Candy….. Cindy……. Hahaha
She looked into her bag then dipped her hand into it and brought out two bars of candy
Cindy: chocolate ???? or vanilla?
Cindy : we’ll just break the two bars into two, so the both of us could have both chocolate and vanilla.
She did so and handed them over to Blue. She began to eat hers immediately and Blue tried to eat it too
Blue: wow, delicious. It’s even better than water Lilly seeds
Cindy: what’s water lily seeds.
Blue: uhmm, a plant that grows in water
Cindy : your house might have been close to a river or lake right?
Cindy: come on, let’s go to your room. I’m tired of staying here
They went to her room and as they were coming in, Blue noticed that the weird girl was still staying in the same position she was after she helped Blue. And she was looking sad
Cindy: OH look Blue. It’s that weird girl. She’s in this room. Ignore her if she tries to create a scene with you again. And if she picks up a fight, bite her skin off.
Blue : haha. I wouldn’t do that
They got to her bed and Cindy laid down while Blue sat beside her
Blue: (in thoughts) wow, they lie down just the way we do. I think the only difference between us and humans is that we have a tail and live underwater but they have legs and live ashore. Interesting
Cindy:……and that’s how my mom and dad separated. But I miss england. Have you ever been there before?
Blue : I’m sorry. What were you saying again?
Cindy was about repeating what she said when a female officer walked in with a megaphone
FO : Miss Blue Connor. Your attention is needed
Blue: oh that’s me ma’am
FO : good follow me
Blue began to follow her
Cindy: wait for me
Before they left, the weird girl turned and looked at them. Her eyes met with Blue but she immediately looked away
They got outside of the dorm and Blue heard her name. It was her mother
Ma’am Nina : how are you doing Blue? How was your interview?
Blue: it was fine mother
Cindy: hello Blue’s mom
Ma’am Nina : hello young miss. I see you’ve made friends with my daughter
Cindy: yes ma’am. Blue is my friend, you know I met her back at the hall when a weird girl created a…..
Blue: uhhh, mother my luggage
She deliberately cut Cindy short
Ma’am Nina : ohh, there it is.
She pointed to a luggage leaning against the wall.
They went over and Blue carried it.
Ma’am Nina : I got some extra things for you Blue. So don’t be surprised if you see anything new. (Whispering in Blue’s ears?) Your instincts will tell you how to use them
Blue: thanks mother
Ma’am Nina : I’ll keep coming to see you when I’m free. Don’t worry, we’re together. Cindy take care of Blue for me. I’ll see you girls later.
Cindy : good bye Blue’s mom
Blue: good bye mother.
She left and they both walked back into the dorm with Cindy helping Blue to pull her luggage behind.
Cindy : I like your mother. She’s so caring and loving like my grandma
Blue: will you tell me about your grandma
Cindy : oh yes. I would have done that even though you didn’t ask.
Blue smiled. She knew that Cindy’s hobby was talking already
They went to her bed which was the lower one and began look at her things. Clothes, undies, toothbrush, hair brush, hair band, some snacks and some of her things from the ocean.
She made them invisible by looking at them without Cindy’s notice. She knew that if she should see them, she will begin to ask so many questions. And Blue wasn’t ready to answer.
Just then, a figure came in front of them. They looked up and it was the weird girl with gloomy and sad eyes
Girl: uhmm, HI. I’m Audrey
