*a few hours later*
Chloe finally comes back from school. I take her in my room. [Gia]: I'm sorry
[Chloe]: for what? [Gia]: I started all of this.
[Chloe]: it's okay. You did nothing wrong
[Gia]: I thought I could stand up for myself, but I was wrong
[Chloe]: no. What you did was amazing! I didn't think I could even talk about Andrea behind her back let alone fight her. [Gia]: so you're not mad? [Chloe]: of course not! [Gia]: but you're still lab partners with her. [Chloe]: don't worry about that! Andrea and I actually got to know each other in detention. Turns out, she's not too bad. [Gia]: really?
[Chloe]: yeah. She's still pretty rude though. [Gia]: that's never gonna change. [Chloe]: true. Why don't you get some rest? We have school tomorrow. [Gia]: oh yeah. Okay.
Chloe leaves and shuts the door. I lay on my bed. I go on my phone and check Instagram. Noah posted a photo! He looks so cute in it. I immediately like the photo and comment a bunch of emojis. Then I check my texts. I got a text from Ciara. Oh my god. I forgot about my best friend! *text conversation* [Ciara]: Gia where r u?? I haven't seen u in days!
[Ciara]: hello? [Ciara]: did I do something wrong? [Gia]: OMG Ciara! I'm so sorry I left my phone in my jeans! [Ciara]: where r u??
[Gia]: in New York!
[Ciara]: what? Why the hell are your parents still here?
[Gia]: Quinn and I ran away cuz our parents kept arguing! [Ciara]: did you find somewhere to live? [Gia]: Quinn went to an orphanage and I met these people at school that I could live with. [Ciara]: school? You found a school? [Gia]: yeah they let me register for free! It's a private school.
[Ciara]: private school? Free? [Gia]: yes. I told the principal what condition I was in and she let me register for free!
[Ciara]: who do you live with? [Gia]: Noah and Chloe. I met them at school.
[Ciara]: you live with random people you met at school?
[Gia]: they're not random! They're better than my family!
[Ciara]: so you left me? [Gia]: no. I just um moved
[Ciara]: okay. But we could still FaceTime!
[Gia]: yeah. But I can't right now. I gtg
