Lauren Song
Best part of the year
Tue Aug 29, 2017 00:22

Lauren couldn't believe that it was already her seventh year. As a first-year, imagining herself as a seventeen-year-old was impossible. It seemed like forever ago when she started to see her magical abilities and decided to attend Sonora. Leaving Sonora was so scary, and the thought of never seeing these girls like this again was even sadder. She didn't want things to change.

She was feeling melancholy during the whole Welcoming Feast, but as soon as she met her best friends in their room she felt her spirits rise. "Hey!" she replied, hugging each of them. "Happy New Year!

"I went to Korea with my family during the summer and my dad really wanted my sister to go to school there and stay with him, so we dropped her off. It was really sad seeing her go especially cause she's the youngest, but I think she'll be happy spending so much time with my dad. She always wanted to be the only child anyway. That means it's just me and Isaac now when we're not at Sonora. My parents were really happy to see each other for the few months we were there, and it was cool visiting the touristy spots there. We try to go every summer, but I think this was the longest time we stayed."

Feeling like a whole family was special to Lauren, and though her parents lived separately, she felt lucky that they weren't divorced. She'd explained her odd living situation to her roommates years before, that her dad had to run his family's non-magical business in South Korea while her mom had her life, her family, and her work as a pharmacist in Los Angeles.

"How were your summers? Tell me everything!"

Once everyone had shared, Lauren's dark eyes brightened at the sentimental theme. "I love that idea, Jemima. I remember when I loved unicorns and dragons back as a first-year. I think rainbows were probably included in that." She grinned, feeling tears suddenly prickling at her eyes. "I can't believe this is our last year. We'll definitely stay in touch, right?"
