p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"We all laughed at that one. Even Arielle joined in, as she had been joking… though she really didn't know what digits were./p

p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Okay!" Camille exclaimed. "I'm sorry I asked!"/p

p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Here, here," I raised my water bottle in mock salute. The four of us erupted into laughter, so loud a few people at neighboring tables raised their eyebrows at us./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"It was Tuesday, a school day, and it was lunchtime. Tuesday meant bologna sandwiches for lunch (a delicacy only Arielle enjoyed), two lovely hours of math class, and leftover Monday blues./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Where are the boys anyway?" Arielle asked, looking around. They boys all came from PE together, and weren't usually this late./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""No clue," I said. "I wonder where-," my words were cut off as a pair of arms lifted me from my seat and flipped me over. I shrieked in surprised and turned to see Phaelen, Seth, and Robbie behind me. "Watch it, Beanpole," I whacked him on the chest./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Phaelen smirked. "Cool it, Ginger. Just trying to say hello," he walked around to the other side of the table. Robbie followed him around and seemed a tad put down when Phaelen sat down next to Camille. Seth came and sat by Bella. She planted her lips on his and put an arm around his neck, and Arielle rolled her eyes as Camille gagged visibly. I snickered. They were borderline making out. When Bella released Seth was nearly scarlet./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Stuff it," Bella said. She flipped her dark hair over her shoulder with a perfectly manicured hand, the bracelets on her hand jingling, and a ring on her finger glistening. That ring was a gift from an ex-boyfriend, but was "too pretty to give up just because the guy was an absolute-/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Stop it Eliza! Can't you just have a normal conversation with your friends without all these stupid facts butting in!?/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Those "stupid facts" saved your life three years ago. Or have you forgotten?/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"I looked up a Phaelen, who was proudly showing an amused Camille his funny voice. The facts weren't the only thing that saved my life…/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""I still think that toes are more important. I mean, if you lose your big toe, you won't be able to walk straight, and then you might trip on something and, like, emdie/em," Arielle was saying./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"I shook my head to clear it. "Where did you hear that?" I asked, the answer popping into my head moments later. I had to ask them questions sometimes. To throw them off. Because they can't know…/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Eliza!" a hand waved in front of my face. "I said Mr. Penguin told me," Arielle explained seriously./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Okay," I said absentmindedly, still thinking./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Arielle frowned. "Liza. Did you hear me? What are you doing?"/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"I shook my head again, realizing the entire table was staring at me. "Sorry, Arielle. I was just thinking…" I trailed off. Bella had begun to talk about something that happened to her that weekend./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Camille, Robbie, Seth, and Phaelen listened intently to Bella's story, but Arielle wouldn't take her eyes off of me./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"The bell rang, saving me from any extra explanation. That happened so often. I'd become lost in my own world, and Arielle would question me. The Bella would distract everyone./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""We'll all meet behind building six, after class, okay?" Bella asked as we all stood up. "My mom will pick us up and take us to the library, so we can study." I saw Phaelen tense up a bit./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Oh, crap," Camille said. "I can't go. I have to go to the glasses place. I broke my spare glasses, and my mom's making me get new ones today."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""I can't go either," Robbie said quickly. "I have a thing."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""I have practice today, babe," Seth said./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""I don't really want to study," Phaelen admitted. "Plus, I'm not really supposed to go to the library."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Arielle snorted. "Why?/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Phaelen blushed. "Erm, family issues. We can study at my place."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Yeah," I said. "Our house." As far as everyone was concerned, my name was Eliza Rivers, not Eliza Kelly. I was Phaelen's sister, even though I looked nothing like him. People didn't question it, but they wondered./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Bella rolled her eyes. "My mom can pick us up tomorrow and take us to my house. We'll study there, as long as you all can." This was big. None of us had ever been to the West's house, but every time we brought it up, Bella started talking about something else. She had troubles, I think… her memories were oddly foggy./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Cool," I said. Everyone else murmured in agreement./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""See you after class," Arielle called with a wave as we parted ways. She stopped. "Tomorrow! She you tomorrow!"/p

p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Mom, we're home!" Phaelen called as we shrugged off our bags. Ciara, Phaelen's twelve year old sister, poked her brunette head out from the kitchen and smiled./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""We're making cookies," Ciara said. "I saved you one."/p

p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"I gasped lightly. "You dropped it!" I said with a smile, crossing my arms./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Ciara frowned, chucked the icky cookie into a trash can and stormed back to her mother. Phaelen and I chuckled as we followed her into the kitchen./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Hello Phaelen. Eliza. How was school?" Ava asked. Her voice was ringed with a light Irish accent, just barely audible after all her years in America./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Phaelen shrugged. "Good."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Weren't you all going to got to study after school?" Ava said. She opened up the oven and pulled out a tray. Phaelen reached for one, but Ava lifted the tray out of his reach. It was kind of funny to watch, because Phaelen was nearly a head taller than his mother, who was a bit shorter than I was./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Turns put she was taking us to the library," Phaelen said. Ava froze for a moment, a spatula holding a cookie in her hand. Then she laughed softly./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Didn't want to run into Mr. Bender, did you?" Ava's laugher grew louder. "Oh, Ray will love to hear this."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Ray was Phaelen and Ciara's father. He worked a lot, and we hardly ever saw him./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Mom, can I have a cookie now?" Phaelen said, desperate to change the subject./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"Ava shook her head. "Do your homework, and then we'll talk. You too, Eliza."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"I smiled. "Of course."/p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""Yeah, do your homework," Ciara reached for a cookie but Ava swatted her hand away./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;""You too missy," Ava said. Ciara scowled and walked away./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"I walked upstairs to the guest room that I called my own, but refused to allow the Rivers to spend money renovating it for me. I just kept it clean and had my own few possessions. Besides my journal and a bit of cash, I'd gotten a laptop, that I'd saved up for, and a cell phone that had been a gift./p
p style="margin: 20px 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; text-align: justify;"I sat down at the desk and pulled out my Algebra Two book.
