*Wynter's POV*

I was woken up by the sound of my phone ringing. I was in Scarlet's house in her spare bedroom. Aqua was at her house, Hazel was at hers, while the boys and El were at their new place. I quickly grabbed my cell and looked at the caller: Lauren ❤. No, I didn't consider it weird that she had a heart next to her name, she was myvlittle sister that I loved with all my heart! I hit the 'Answer' button and pressed the phone to my ear.

"Hey, sweetie," I said.

"Hey. Are you alright?" she asked. She sounded a bit worried. "You haven't talked to me in a while and I thought something might've happened to you"

A pang of guilt shot through me like lightning. I frowned and apologized, "l'm sorry, Lauren. I guess I got caught up with the boys and everyone."

"It's okay," she mumbled. "I just miss my my sister." Okay. Now I felt like shit.

"You know what? Let's spend the day together. Just you and me," I offered.

"Really?! I'lI go get ready!" Her enthusiasm made me smile. "Bye, love you!"

"Love you, too," I said and hung up. I rubbed the rest of the sleep out of my eyes and slid out of bed. I walked over to the closet I was using and went through all of the clothes their until I decided on (Pic above. The necklace is fucked up its suppose to be a silver locket with the words 'I love you' engraved on it to symbolize her mother.)

I went into the bathroom and put on sparkly eye shadow and black mascara and straightened my hair.

I suddenly got a bad feeling, as if warning today wouldn't be good at all, but I made my way back into my room. I went to the duffel bag I had brought and looked in the pocket that held the locket. Pulling it out, I examined the words 'I love you' carved in it. It had been my mothers, and I'd taken it from her jewelry box the day of her funeral because she'd always told me she wanted to start a family trend where it would be passed along to the oldest daughter. The tears started welling up in my eyes but I stopped them from pouring over.

I kissed the locket, whispered the carved words back to her, and then clasped it around my neck so it was hanging next to my heart.

I grabbed my phone, shoved three twenty dollar bills in my back pocket, and then walked out of the room. I shook Scarlet awake. "Hey, can I borrow your car for the day? I'm going to see Lauren."

"Sure," she mumbled before curling back up into her blankets. I laughed and walked out of the house, making sure to grab her keys. I hopped into the drivers seat and started the car, listening to the engine start. Just as I was about to leave, I remembered Lauren's gifts from when I went shopping with the girls a while back and ran back inside to get them. Once I'd placed them in the trunk, I texted Lauren that I was on my way and drove to her friend's house. I really think Lauren and I have the best friends in the world for letting us stay at their houses like this.

Within ten minutes, I was parked outside of her friend May's house and got out. I walked up the path and rang the doorbell. There was the pounding of feet and then the door swung open, revealing my baby sister. Her arms hugged my waist in a death grip and I hugged her back just as hard laughing. I've missed you," she said.

"I missed you more," I replied. May and her mom appeared at the door. I greeted them. "Thanks for letting her stay, you have no idea how much I appreciate it," I said.

"No need to thank me. She's a wonderful girl I love her like she's my own," Julie, May's mom, said. "What time should I expect her back?"

That's what I loved about Julie: she actuallybwanted Lauren at her house all the time. "Let's see, it's almost eleven-thirty now, so maybe around eight?"
