  • Dear Diary,

    After we took a luxuriously long shower and touched and kissed each other some more, Ashley got a text from Teddy. She asked me if I wanted to go with her to pick Teddy up, but I decided to stay here so I could wash my clothes and pick out some new ones from Ashley's closet. Her closet is the size of my room and FILLED with colorful beautiful girl clothes. I'm nowhere near her size, Diary, she's such a lovely woman while I'm just a girl. I don't have her wonderful curves. But there were a few older outfits, near the back, a bit of dust along the hangars, maybe from a few years ago, they looked smaller. They fit me mostly. Good enough, I think. I hope she likes them on me.

    She brought Teddy back and I didn't want to interrupt, Teddy had had a rough night, Nula turned her down and she looked a little loopy, she was wet and withdrawn. But Ashley was there for her, being her best friend. I am Ashley's best good friend, so I didn't get in her way. Not even when they were hugging and touching and I felt a little sick to my stomach and all this spit was in my mouth. At one point they were talking about something that happened last year back when I didn't exist for either of them and my jaws hurt and I realized it was from my clenching them. A couple times my vision got a little blurry but I went to the bathroom and calmed down before I cried. Ashley gets so upset when I cry and I didn't want to be in the way, so I let them talk and I didn't make a fuss when Ashley wanted me to lay with them. I told her it would be okay for me to sleep on the floor, but she kept saying the bed was so big and I really did want to snuggle up to Ashley.

    In my dreams, I saw Ashley and Teddy and Nyx. We all four traveled in a tesseract to Uriel and met the happy centaur people and talked about love. Teddy told Nula she loved her and I told Ashley and Nyx I loved them. Then Teddy and Nula ran off holding hands and laughing together. Ashley and Nyx, smiled at me and kissed me, then they each took one of my hands and pulled. And like a brittle piece of balsa wood, I cracked in half and they each had a part of me, and they smiled and took me in different directions, away from a babbling brook and I drifted away a little happy and a little broken.

    I woke up early, like always. My first thought was, 'have to do the chores, time to get up up up'. This is what I say to get me motivated and to make sure I don't get in trouble for missing them. But then I feel and I feel a soft head on my shoulder and it isn't Badtz-Maru. I feel a soft hand on my hip, too and that is way too big for Barbie or even Renna and I slowly open my eyes so I can kiss... Teddy. Fiddlesticks.

    Diary, I don't know where Ashley went. I hear some weird whirring noise far away, but I have no idea what it means and I woke up with Teddy on me. And I was a little mad, like someone gave me the wrong Christmas gift or the tags fell off and they were switched and I have the wrong present. But then I realize that's not nice, these are not nice thoughts, it is not Teddy's fault that she's not the person I want here in bed with me.

    And I look at her. I watch her pretty doe eyes under those nice lashes and her cute little face. I never realized it was cute because it has always been looking at me with hate or anger or, even worse, nothing, looking past me. At best, I am the annoying burr in her saddle. I am in her way for Ashley. It's funny, she doesn't realize how much in the way I am now. I had the S-E-X with her, not you, Theodora Ellis. You meanie, I staked claim. On my best good friend Ashley. I gave her all that she wanted. She wanted the touching and kissing and the, big moment dizzy-making stuff, and she got it. A whole lot. I studied her body to be really good at it and I'm almost an expert at the swirl-kissing and the finger curling and I know where she likes kisses on her body. You have no idea!

    But I gave her all that and the second she saw a text from you, she dropped everything. She ran to you, or more correctly, drove to you, but still. You have her heart, Theodora Ellis. Why are so mean to me? But you are good to her? I never ever hurt you, but you hurt me, do you remember? You're so pretty right now asleep like this, touching me. Like you were touching Ashley last night. I touched your hand a couple times when I tried to touch Ashley and you were already there. Did you register that? What did you think, when Ashley didn't mind that I was touching her? Maybe she reacted to me a little differently? Maybe she liked me being there?

    Oh, Diary, this is so ugly. I am being ugly. I am being a bad friend for thinking these thoughts. I am being mean to Teddy and she didn't ask for it, not this time. She is Ashley's best friend. If I am Ashley's best good friend, I should be nice to her. Maybe last night was a new step. What if this morning she wakes up and she doesn't look at me like I'm ugly? She really is pretty right now, her touch is nice. I can just pretend we are friends and lie here with her and maybe she'll like me. If she likes me, then maybe I won't be in the way anymore and I can still be with Ashley without her having to be our friends separately. I want Ashley around all the time, so if I am good to you, Teddy Ellis, then maybe you'll stop avoiding me and hating me.

    Teddy really is pretty, not cheerleader pretty or movie pretty, real girl pretty, not fakey pretty. I am starting to see why Ashley likes her. Maybe I can pretend I like her for a little longer. I'll just lie here with her snuggled up with me and pretend I'm sleeping. I can be really quiet and just close my eyes and imagine it is Ashley there and that's okay. Actually, a little more than okay and I don't mind that. Not a bit. It feels a little nice, really. So I place my right hand over the one she has draped across me and and I smooth her forearm a little. And I don't know why, really, but I'm pretending I like her and I press my lips against the top of her head and her soft hair smells a little floral, probably her shampoo, I think. And before I mean to, I make a little "Hmmmn" sighing sound and I don't know where that came from. I close my eyes in case that wakes her up. I hope she can't feel my heartbeat right now, it is going a little faster than I want it to go.

    Take a string on Holly, of course.

    Could it be that Holly is turning Teddy on a little, too? Why I think that's possible. Maybe not statistically likely, but possible.

    Holly notices Teddy shifting, being scared in her dreams and she can't help but smooth her hair and murmur quietly, "It's okay, Teddy, don't be scared. Shhh, nobody's gonna hurt you, I won't let them. Shhh now. Sleep tight." She continues to touch the back of her head gently and trace a warm hand down her back, the same motions she would use on Renna when she had bad dreams.

    When Teddy starts awake, Holly freezes, her right hand on Teddy's shoulder as she was rubbing it softly, not trying to wake her, but hoping to calm her. Holly pauses for a moment, letting Teddy get her bearings, then says quietly, "You were having a bad dream, Teddy." Then the spell is broken and Holly pulls her hand back, dropping her eyes from looking at her, "I-I'm sorry, you snuggled up to me and then you seemed scared and..." then nothing.

    "I know you didn't know it was me, Teddy. It's ok. I didn't know you and Ashley were so close. Until last night." Holly says tentatively. Then she sees the bruises and alarm comes to her voice, "Did someone hurt you? What happened to your neck?" She scoots across the bed a little to get a little peek, to see if the ligature marks look like fingertips.
  • [Holly]

    Holly sits on the bed while Teddy leaves for the bathroom. She chews on the inside of her cheek absently while watching the door. Then after she hears a flush, she slips off the bed and waits by the door for a sign of Teddy. It might surprise her to see Holly standing by the edge of the door, but Holly doesn't seem to be trying to scare her. She says brightly, "Teddy, I really like Ashley a lot, she's been the nicest person to me. I know she is your best good friend. I-I would like for us to be friends, too. Why don't you like me?"

    As Holly talks, she's rubbing her fingertips against her palms nervously, fidgeting while she stands in front of Teddy, obviously uncomfortable with this proposition but hopeful.

    Not entirely sure about Teddy's answer, she follows her over to the backpack and peers over her shoulder as she pulls out her pillbox and water. She smiles at this and says, "Oh, a pillbox. Renna had a pillbox, too. The nurses gave it to her so she could take her own medicine. We put stickers on it. There was a Hello Kitty one and one for Patrick, he's a starfish. Not a real one, Teddy, a cartoon. What kinds of medicine do you need? What do you have? I could study about it for you, if you want. I like reading. Do you like reading?" Then Teddy pulls out the toothbrush and mouthwash, "I like your toothbrush, the neck is bendy. What's the green drink?"

    Holly watches Teddy's vitamin display and as she gets up, Holly follows, "Serotonin? Are you taking appetite suppressants or something like that? Trish takes three of them, they're really not good for her. You don't need that, Teddy, you're pretty, like I said earlier."

    When Teddy asks about Renna, Holly pauses for a second. Then her tone drops and she answers, "Renna was my little sister." Then as Teddy swishes, Holly watches the side of her mouth, the cheek pulses as she swishes around the mouthwash. She talks a bit louder to make herself heard, "She was really sick, that's why she took so many pills. But eventually, the pills weren't to make her better anymore... they were. Well, they were just for the pain." Holly looks into the mirror at Teddy instead of the back of her head, her anguish showing on her face as she ends, "She was... my best good friend. I really miss her, Teddy."

    "I didn't say you were pretty? Oh, I must have just thought it!" Holly replies with an innocent grin.

    ...

    Holly looks at Teddy in the mirror instead of the Teddy beside her when she answers, "Oh, it's ok. I know it isn't fun to talk about people dying. I just answered your question." Continuing to look at her reflection, "You know, that's one of the things that makes Ashley so special to me. She lost her brother when he was little. Have you seen his room? Her mommy keeps it nice and tidy, like a little shrine. Its so sweet. Have you had one of her cookies? They're not super good, but she's so nice to make them."

    Then she jerks to look at real Teddy, in the eyes, all of the sudden, "Why do you take serotonin then?"

    Holly blinks a couple times, unsure. Its obvious she touched a nerve, so she proceeds slowly, "Uh, Teddy, I-I'm sorry. I was curious about the... I don't even... how do you use ecstasy? That doesn't make... I wouldn't, uhn, hold it against you. I don't know what it... is?" Holly searches in Teddy's eyes in hopes of some clue, but fails.

    She starts talking quietly, softly, but with each word, she grows a bit more confident, assured in her earnest plea, "I'm not a tattletale, Teddy. I keep secrets really well. I-I only asked the questions because I wanted to help. I thought you were sick maybe. Not to hold it over you. I know you like Nula. I think she is really pretty and nice. I would never hold that over you. It's okay to like girls. I want you to be happy with her."

    Holly takes a breath, then meets Teddy's eyes, saying slowly, "I want to be your friend. I am Ashley's best good friend and she is yours. I can be a good friend, Teddy."

    I'll spend a string to offer Teddy an XP to drop the hostility with Holly and give her a chance to be friends.

    Holly clasps her hands together in front of her chest and her eyes open wide and she grins from ear to ear, "Yay, Teddy! I'm so happy. This is going to be a great day! I want to cook breakfast for everyone. What do you like to eat?" She starts to head downstairs, intent on cooking some kind of breakfast with whatever the Lange's have in their fridge.
