Dead end или a breakthrough?
“What?” Cadence asked for the umpteenth time, and I gave him an exasperated look.
“Again? Seriously Cadence, your supposed to be the one actually paying attention?” I say, frustrated.
Cadence flashed me a wicked smile. “Age is a number cupcake, I’m not that boring.”
I surpressed my smile as I told him and Jess everything that happened again.
“So,” Jess сказал(-а) after I was finished (again). “You think that she was the one that killed your sister, and tried to kill you?”
I nod, I look to Cadence who has a thoughtful expression. “Strange, it’s like she’s a ghost, how Ты described her, there but not there. Someone Ты wouldn’t give a секунда glance или thought to.”
I nodded again. “Dorothy always had a lot of friends, I didn’t know most of them, sometimes, neither did she.”
“That was just Dorothy,” Jess told Cadence. “Everyone knew her, she was the girl that everybody wanted to be her friend, and some pretended that they were, hanging out with her when she had no idea of who they were.”
“Creepy,” Cadence replied.
I nodded. “I can not tell Ты how many people I barely knew showed up to my birthday parties with these awesome gifts after they found out Dorothy and I were best friends.”
Jess grinned. “Me too, Dorothy and I, she was sweet and rragrded me as a close friend, and when word got out that she went to my B.day’s all of a sudden the whole school shows up.”
Cadnece whistled, looking to me. “Must’ve been something.”
I nodded. “She was.”
“Do Ты know where her whereabouts were before she died?”
I looked at him confusedly and he elaborated. “Did she say something about where she was going?”
I shook my head. “She just told me she’d be right back, it was dark out, and she was wearing ridiculous clothes for outside on a cool night. It was early in the morning when I noticed she hadn’t returned. And just when I went to knock on her door, somebody knocked on the front door.”
“The police?” Jess asked, even though she knew.
Jess cocked her head. “Strange…”
“What?” Both Cadence and I asked at the same time.
“How when your just about to knock on Dorothy’s door, that the police start knocking.”
I think about it. “Your right.”
“And Dorothy’s funeral?” Jess asked. “didn’t the whole school come to pay their repescts.”
I nodded and Cadence furrowed his eyebrows. “But she;s out of high school.”
Jess gives him a look. “She was a legend, everybody knew her, without actually meeting her. Like I said, that was just Dorothy, she never had to try.”
“Never ever,” I say softly.
Cadence shakes his head. “Now that is one of the strangest. How can a girl, be so known, so popular, so loved, just have everything handed to her? I’m not being rude или anything, but your family wasn’t that rich, they barely lifted a finger to help Ты at the hosptial, nor did they chase after Ты after Ты left the police station.”
I nod as he continues. “I don’t know, don’t Ты just find that a little strange? What made her so…perfect? Because I don’t think just being the Queen B will grant Ты all the things she’s been given, it’s like something else.”
Jess and I nod, catching on. “You think she did something? Anything?”
“I can bet.” Cadence says. “Like Ты сказал(-а) Jess, she was a legend. But what made her a legend?”
“She did a lot of crazy stuff throughout her whole life, especially in school.” I offer.
“What if what she did was kept secret, или only a few people knew.” Jess says.
“Then how did everyone else find out?” I ask.
Jess shrugs. “Nobody can resist such good gossip, someone leaked the news and it spread like wildfire.”
“Then how do we not know?” I asked.
This time Cadence answered. “Dorothy usually finds a way for anything, in your visions, how she roughhoused Serache, maybe she did the whole school.”
“She couldn’t have been that powerful!”
Jess looks at me, patting my arm. “She always was, sweetie.”
