"You're so skinny! Oh my god!" My mom says as I walk down the stairs. I look down at my outfit. I wear a white slightly see-through tank top with a loose cardigan. I add skinny jeans and a gold necklace to complete the look. "And that tank top makes you look so much skinnier!" She says.

 "And that tank top makes you look so much skinnier!" She says

"Geez, thanks for pointing that out, again." I say sarcastically. "It's not like I haven't heard that before." I mumble.

I walk out the door and see Ivy's car in the driveway.

"I can't believe I agreed to this." I say once I get in her car. "Oh wait, that's right. I didn't agree to this. I was forced into this." I glare at my best friend.

"Guilty as charged." She puts her hands up in a teasing manner as if she just got pulled over. The car starts and she backs out of my driveway.

"Where are we going?" I ask.

"Mall. There is a final sale before the bathing suits go out of season."

"They're already are out of season. It's October. It's Halloween. It's literally another season."

"Ya, but they think they can get more sales in before it gets cold."

"It already is kinda cold."

"Well suck it up. We need an excuse to go to Reece's Halloween pool party. Plus, you need to get Ryder off your mind." She says.

It's true. Ever since I saw Ryder again, I can't get him out of my head. His betrayal keeps hurting me even though it's over. But the love and attention he gave me gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling.

We walk into a store and Ivy rushes to the SALE rack.

"Blue?" Ivy asks me as she looks at a light blue bathing suit on the rack.

"Maybe not a light blue. You look better in dark blue or a turquoise." I reply.

"I'm saying for you!" She laughs.

"No. Black is my color. I look good in black." I say. I pick up a plain black tankini off the rack and show her.
