Cora sighed, glancing out the window as the limousine rumbled down the road. She saw Winnie and Minnie laughing.
Suddenly, Cora's eyes traced to the new girl in Cambodia. She was alone. Cora brightened, "Maybe I'm not the only one alone!", she thought.
Cora heard rumours that her name was Blair. She shivered, thinking of the story, Blair Witch. Cora had creepy NIGHTMARES about that! Meanwhile...
Evelyn was trudging down the streets of Cambodia, looking around. She saw a limo. A girl was peering out the window. Evelyn heard about that girl, Cora.
Evelyn glanced away as Cora looked, and caught her smiling at Evelyn. Suddenly, two girls walked past her and Evelyn caught their conversation, "Blair, Witch." Evelyn frowned. She had heard the gossip that her name was Blair, and she knew what story they were talking about.
The first person to say her name was Blair was Layla. Evelyn suddenly remembered the girl in the limousine......, looking lonely...
As Cora walked towards the entrance of her mansion, after that car ride, she thought of "Blair", and thought, "Why not invite her to a playdate?"
The next day, she went right over to "Blair", and said, "Hi Blair, right?" The new girl looked up and said, "Actually, I'm Evelyn. Hey, you're the popular girl, right?" Cora winced, "Right." She had never like being popular, all those fan groups....UGH. Cora shuddered.
"So, wanna come over to my home for a playdate?" At those words, Sarah, Amy and Maya all gasped and said in unison, "Can I come for the playdate?" Minnie and Winnie heard and asked, "Can we come?" Cora sighed, feeling terrible already, "Fine." She said.
Cora looked at Evelyn, "Are you coming?" The girls gasped. "She's talking to Blair!", Cora heard Sarah whisper to everyone. "Actually, her name is Evelyn." Eugenia, the friendliest girl, stated. "How did you......?" asked Cora.
Evelyn was shocked. The most popular girl in the school had asked her to go to a playdate! Evelyn went to sleep, dreaming. As Evelyn stepped up the steps, her mom called out, "Evelyn, I can accompany you to meet Corla or whatever her name is." "Mom! No!"
Evelyn rang the doorbell and the door opened to reveal Cora, wearing a maid uniform! Evelyn froze not sure what to say. "Come in!" Cora said enthusiastically, but somewhere in her voice, Evelyn sensed sadness.
"She's sad that she's popular!" Evelyn realized. "Hey,", She said, "I was as popular at my old school as you're at yours." Really?", said Cora, "It's just that those girls are so...annoying."
After Cora let her feelings out, she felt much more comfortable around her environment.
An hour passed, but no one else came, Cora began to wonder, "Are they not going because Evelyn was coming?" Suddenly, a car drove up to the house and out stepped Eugenia. Evelyn ran to embrace her. Cora asked, "Why are you here?"
"I'm Evelyn's friend, I wanted to make sure the other girls didn't hurt her with their words, I always knew you were honest to your friends, but you seemed like you asked Evelyn because you felt sorry for her, not asking her genuinely. Can I come in?"
Without waiting for a reply, Eugenia went in. Through the night, Eugenia and Evelyn spent it at Cora's home, talking about mean girls.
They snuck around, surprising, Cora's twin brother, Cole. He had run down, screaming, "MOM! WE HAVE TO MOVE! THERE'S A GHOST IN OUR HOUSE!" And that is the story of how three very different girls became best friends.1 / 15
