Valerie slipped out of English class the second the bell rang for lunch and began texting away on her phone. Jordan was still in there talking crap to his dad, and she was sure that was going to take a while. They always spent all this time talking crap to each other. Then, she couldn't criticize him too much. The only other person she was friends with besides Jordan was her mother, exactly the person she was texting now to find out if she would get to see her for lunch. Yeah, they had their little altercations every once in a while, but lunch time together was sacred. All fights were put on hold until after lunch was over. Spinelli's were a tight-knit group despite how much they fought amongst themselves.
Valerie turned her head at the familiar sound of her little sister running down the hall toward her. "Hey Bree. Whatcha got there?"
Sabrina Spinelli, age 6, proudly displayed the picture she had colored of their family.
"What the hell is that?" Valerie asked, pointing at a purple blob at the bottom of the page.
"Vincent," Sabrina replied as if this was perfectly obvious, "he says he's always wanted to be a purple cat."
"Riiiiiiiight." Valerie rolled her eyes and kept on walking. For a while there, they all thought Bree just had a really active imagination. Turns out she could actually speak to animals. Val thought that was even creepier than an active imagination.
"Hey, do you know where Suzy is today?" Sabrina asked, running past Val and walking backward as she spoke to her older sister. Val kept texting away.
"Jordy says she's got the flu," Val replied. She glanced up at her sister briefly but was too slow to warn her with her, "Bree, look out!"
Sabrina had managed to backward walk right into someone, and she was now running back over to Valerie and hiding behind her big sister. "Bree, are you okay?" Valerie looked over at the person and shrugged.
