"Okay cool, who are we killing?" I asked, curiously. I glanced at the group and my eyes landed on Caleb. I raised an eyebrow at him, causing him to put his hands up in defense.
"Not me, I'm too lovable to kill." He argued, shooting my an innocent smile.
I smirked slightly, and turned back to Shannon who was still fuming. "You okay?" I questioned cautiously.
I jumped back, slightly terrified by her anger. "Wow okay." Chase wore the same expression as me and we both edged slowly away from Shannon. Everything turned silent again, which made me feel incredibly awkward.
"This is so dramatic, get me some sweet and salty popcorn!" I heard a girls voice whisper. My eyes fell on Rose, who was seated beside her brother, watching intently.
"Rose!" I squealed and made my way over to her, giving her a side hug. "Do you know that I love your name? Because my middle name is actually Rose too!"
"Hiya!" She greeted with a wide grin, ignoring my small rant. "I'm not supposed to be back here because the visitors are supposed to stay in the field but Shane dragged me in."
"No one will find out." I assured her, "Do you like the camp?"
"It's entertaining. There's drama everywhere."
"Yeah so do you know who we're killing?"
"Josh. It's always Josh, he's such a fuck up."
"Hey!" Josh snapped, glaring at her. She rolled her eyes at him and put her finger to her lips, silencing him.
I narrowed my eyes at Josh and raised an eyebrow. "What did you do?" I demanded.
"I didn't do anything!"
Shannon scoffed at this. I sighed at their childishness and turned to Shane, knowing that he'd give me the gossip. "Josh said that Shannon shouldn't have dyed her hair, that he preferred it brown because it's more natural." Shane explained, pinching the bridge of his nose. "Shannon then said something like, 'unfortunately for you there isn't a way to dye your personality so you're stuck being an asshole. But at least it's natural!" He copied Shannon in a high pitched voice, waving his hands in sassy motions. I nodded my head both impressed by Shannon's response and Shane's impression of her.
"But then Josh went all, 'you'd swear that dye has gone to your brain and given you a whole personality change, you've never been this much of a bitch!'" Rose added. "I thought that was a bit harsh."
"And then Shannon was like, 'I've always been this much of a bitch, you just never bothered getting to know me and I'm sick of pretending to be Mary Poppins! You can blame May for that!'" Shane mused.
"I claim responsibility for Shannon embracing her bitchiness." I admitted shrugging.
"Then Josh went a bit out of line..." Rose mumbled. "He said maybe you should stop trying to be May and just be yourself, because dying your hair doesn't give you your own personality."
"Dude." Chase exclaimed, glaring at Josh. "What the fuck?"
"Stay out of this Chase." He grumbled.
"So by dying her hair, she's trying to be me?" I demanded, approaching Josh.
"No it's just-"
"Josh you were so out of order!" I snapped, shaking my head.
"I was giving my opinion!"
