A big batch of happy!
Mon Oct 4, 2010 9:16pm

Eve turned around when Sarah spoke up, far too deliriously happy to muster up any short retort to Sarah's assertion. Instead, Eve's smile seemed only to grow. “Really?” she asked in a shocked tone, her eyebrows shooting up. “Wow, so, a conceited person with exceedingly low morals, driven by a powerful, vain ambition, actually gained a spot halfway on that list.” She paused to blink exaggeratedly in disbelief. She was laying it on thick, but Devon was stewing, perhaps far too into his own misery to catch any of what she was saying—and, she wanted him to catch on.

Tilting her head, Eve asked Sarah in a curious tone, “I happened to notice she wore only black when I visited. Now, I was there for a few days, but we never really talked much about her personal life—other than her child, Stewart, and all—but, I'm curious to know whether or not she was in mourning about something.” Eve took a drink of her water and shrugged. “I guess it doesn't matter one way or the other.” This was all directed at Sarah, now, but so obviously directed at Devon. “I hear with those journals, everyone on that list gets treated like royalty.”

Eve reached behind her to latch her fingers through Rand's. She didn't want him to think she was proud of him simply for the purpose of sticking it to Devon. She had been frantically happy when she found out Rand's hard work had paid off so well for him. After laughing in Devon's face, Eve had set to write Rand. She had spent a few weeks with him touring America, and had regretfully left him midway through July to prepare for the next semester. The two had tried to keep up writing each other; Eve had genuinely missed having Rand so near. She couldn't have been happier for him.

"Poor Rand has just been bombarded with admiration wherever he goes," she said, a little quieter to Devon and Sarah, just so the subject of her statement couldn't hear and protest; she had no idea whether or not that was true, seeing as how they hadn't had a chance to go to Lockstone or anywhere else together yet.

            There it was again. Surfacing in the worst way. Sarah's perfectly annoying habit of getting into awkward situations. She'd just made it worse. She put her drink down. "That is not what I meant," was... more

                    Sarah was perturbed by Annet's behavior as much as she was by Eve's. She felt like Alice at the Madhatter's tea table in Alice in Wonderland, where everyone around her was totally off their rocker.... more
