Gah! Curse my forgetful memory! I have a question for you guys. What do you think is going to happen, when Carrie returns to school or once she's a trainee? Have I been leaving good hints or are you still clueless about where the plot will go?
Waking up the next morning, dried tears rest on my face and I’m completely exhausted. Krista is still out cold, so I go to the bathroom and wash my face. She starts groaning and complaining when I turn on a light to get dressed, so I choose to use a flashlight. If Krista is anything like I am, she needs way more sleep than what she gets.
Suddenly, I hear a very loud and boisterous voice bragging to the empty halls, one I recognize to belong to Jung Nam. I peak out the door, and his face lights up. He begins to talk, but I silence him quickly, trying to not wake Krista. Unfortunately, she wakes up the second he walks through the door, probably recognizing Jung Nam’s footsteps. Krista shoots up, muttering something along the lines of she’s up and will have that new routine ready for him by the end of the day.
Jung Nam laughs, filling the room with the sound of a lion’s roar. “Oh Krista! You don’t have to worry about it! That was finished, and today is your day off! Relax, have a spa day! You deserve it.” Turning to face me, he says, “on the other hand, we have to get you to the airport. Your mother is expecting you home today, Carrie, and I intend to have you home when she wants you. You are still a minor, and we never want to upset parents too much. We are left in charge of their precious children, keeping them apart for months at a time, which upsets them enough. So, are you all packed and ready to go?”
“Yes, sir! I have all my things packed, though not as organized as before.” I chuckle at that last part. For some reason, packing to leave I always have everything folded nicely and each item in its special spot, but going home, nothing is where it should be.
