"Molly, come on! We're going to be late again".
"I'm coming, I'm coming, I just need to find my pink bracelet," Molly yelled back.
"Can you believe her, old lace?" I whispered to my pet Varanus.
I rubbed her dark brown back, while she stared at me with her. I shared a strange bond with her ever since my parents gave her to me as a gift.
"Ok, I'm ready," Molly yelled and came running downstairs looking like the colorful 14-year-old little sister I loved.
"Good morning, Old Lace," she said before giving me a bright smile.
"Alright, we're only 15 minutes behind but at least you're ready now. See you, Old Lace," I said blowing her a kiss.
We finally made it to school with only 5 minutes left before the bell rung.
"Late again, Barney" Eiffel said to me as soon as I walked into Atlas Academy.
"Omg, look guys the school's head bitch in charge compared my hair color to Barney for the 50th time this week. Can we all give her a round of applause for her originality?" I responded in the sweetest way possible.
"Ugh, whatever loser" Eiffel said and walk off with her friends.
"I can't believe you said that to her" Nico giggled.
"I'm not a big fan of calling people nasty words but she totally deserved that," Karolina added.
"Ya, don't mess with the Gert train" Molly yelled.
"When did you guys get here?" I asked Nico and Karolina.
"We were waiting for you guys actually," Karolina said.
"But you guys are late again, what happened this time?" Nico asked and looked at Molly.
"Couldn't find my bracelet," Molly said casually and shrugged like it was no big deal.
"Wait, why were you guys waiting for us?" I asked.
It's not that we didn't hang out together at school, but normally we didn't wait for each other unless we had something to talk about.
"Alex invited us over tonight, cuz you know," Nico said quietly.
I know she was talking about her sister's Amy death aniversary.
"Ok, we'll be there," I said because talking about Amy was still a sensitive topic for Nico.
"Cool, can one you guys pass the message to Chase?" Nico asked us.
"I'll do it," I said too quickly causing Molly to give me a knowing smile.
"I mean we have calculus 3 together," I added.
"Ok, I don't care, I'm going to class now," Nico said and left.
Karolina watched her walk off before saying "ya, I should go also".
"Bye guys" Molly yelled at them.
"Hey, look it's Chase you can go talk to him now," Molly said noticing Chase and his friends walking towards Karolina.
"No need, I'm sure Karolina can tell him about it," I said and walked off.
I don't even know why I bother trying, guys like Chase Stein don't notice girls like me I thought.
