we sit on her bed and eat Halloween candy, popcorn, Nutella and crackers. we both wish we were skinnier, but we might as well get as fat as possible first, agreed? so we munch on sugar and watch every movie Keanu Reeves was ever in, and munch on more sugar, and keep repeating this endless process. she tells me a secret or two, i do the same; all the while wishing i could let out the biggest secret of all. the clock tower rings eleven, and i run back up to my room before my house master has a hissy fit.

just another saturday in boarding school.
