Or an impending party
Sun Sep 24, 2017 19:48

Sometimes Darlene called her Katherine which was funny because at home nobody called Kit by her full name unless she was in Big Trouble or sometimes when Dad was being melodramatic. Mom said Dad was melodramatic a lot but Kit didn’t always think he was being melodramatic when Mom said he was. Mom and Dad were goofy like that. But anyway Kit didn’t have a problem with her full name, it was just a lot of syllables and spelling was sometimes hard when she was little and plus Marissa would call her Kit-Kat sometimes and Kit liked that. It was a good nickname. So although she didn’t usually get called Katherine it was super okay that Darlene did it sometimes. It usually only happened when Darlene was being weird though. Maybe Darlene was having a melodramatic day.

Yeah it seemed like Darlene was having a melodramatic day. She was doing the thing that Dad did sometimes when he pretended to be having a lot of feelings about something silly. Unless Darlene really was that excited to meet Darby.

“Don’t cry!” Kit said, scooping Darby up in her hands and scooting along the bed until her pink socks (complete with pattern of striped tabbies in summerwear) touched the floor. She stood up, cupping the spider gently, and held him out to Darlene. “He’s not a cricket, see? He’s just a tarantula. He’s actually a Mexican red-kneed tarantula, you can see the red on his knees right? He’s so cute!” The redhead grinned excitedly at her roommate. “Darlene and Darby even sound kind of the same you’ll be best friends!”
