Sophie, as usual, woke to the blinding dawn, because she forgot to close her shades. Groaning, she clapped her hands, but knew she wouldn't be able to go back to sleep now. She got up and changed, then tackled her pineapple head. As she went to feed Iggy, her snoring Imp, she noticed her human backpack sitting on the floor. Then it hit her. She was going to a sleepover at Everglen today!!! She ran out the door of her room, knowing she had very little to do before she could head over. She rushed into the kitchen, then stopped dead in her tracks. Nobody was there. Of course. It was only a little after dawn, after all. BUT SHE WAS SO EXCITED!!! All of her friends were getting together at Everglen: Fitz, Biana, Wylie, Marella, Tam, Linh, Keefe, Dex, and herself. Well, if she could be counted as her own friend. She ran back up into her room and waited until she heard Grady and Edaline in the kitchen. They smiled as she raced down the stairs.

"Morning sweetie!" Her adoptive mother greeted her.

"Excited for your big friend gathering, kiddo?" Grady, her adoptive father, asked. Sophie grinned.

"Yup! And breakfast looks delicious, mom!" The heaps of red strings did have an enticing smell coming off them. She bit into hers and found it tasted like waffles with strawberries and whip cream on top. So good. Sophie shoved them into her mouth and grabbed her backpack, which she had dropped at the base of the stairs.

"I think I can head over now!" Sophie said, dashing for theLeapmaster.

"Remember, if That Boy gives you trouble, no one will judge you for inflicting on him!" Grady called.

"Bye, I love you!" She called to her parents before being whisked away into the light.She arrived outside ofEverglen's massive gates, to find Biana, Keefe, and Fitz waiting for her. Grinning, she ran towards them. But, given her luck, she tripped and fell straight into Fitz. Blushing, she straightened up. He smiled his movie star smile at her, and she turned even redder. Keefe cleared his throat ruining the moment.

"Alright." He said. "Everyone will be here soon, so.." As if on cue, the air rippled, and several other people appeared. Everyone ran over, excited to see each other.

"Ok!" Linh said once everyone quieted down a bit.

"What do you want to do? " Keefe asked, breaking the silence
