Bella smiled again. It was
kind of like a little house, wasn't it? This room could easily be their home, at least until the next announcement. They could stay here for a little while.
The only other major problem had just occurred to her, though.
Eden snapped her out of her thoughts once more by sitting down and asking about the weapon, as well as the fabric inside her bag.
"I guess they didn't give me anything good", she said, a sheepish look on her face. "I found sleeping pills, though?"
Gently placing her tote on the ground before, Bella pulled open the plastic bag, now that it was a topic of discussion. Curiosity was just bugging her right now.
"As for this..."
She gingerly tugged it out, seeing that it was a... confection
. Confection was the right word. It appeared to be a blue jumper dress, with pink lace on the skirt- almost the color of cotton candy.
Feeling the need to explain, she said "They give you extra clothes sometimes, but usually they're the kind of thing for..."
She searched for the word.
There was more, though, and as Bella looked through the bag a bit more, placing the articles of clothing next to her on the armrest, she saw what looked to be an equally pink petticoat, a pair of white bloomers, a pink blouse that was probably supposed to be layered underneath, matching socks, and even what appeared to be bows to attach somewhere.
In summary: it was the most girly outfit she had ever seen in her life
. And she was a dancer
Still staring at the bag's contents, she couldn't help but stifle a chuckle. Maybe
she'd wear it just for laughs, but she wasn't sure how well she could run in a dress like this, or if she wanted to risk dying in it. It obviously wasn't something she'd wear regularly, except maybe in a play, but the whole concept was making her giggle a little bit.
"Anyways, until next announcement, at the very least. Sounds good?" Bella added, folding up the frilly dress into the bag.
The issue still floated around in her mind. The truth was, Bella knew Shadi was here. It was kind of obvious that she would be... at consideration, to say the least, seeing as everyone in their grade could have been picked. But she saw her at the start, even if briefly. She wasn't sure who else from school was taken aside from her, Shadi, Eden, and Matt, but it still made her worried.
Shadi was a big girl, no doubt, and hopefully she got a good draw to protect herself. The two of them had seen SOTF before, too, so she would know something about strategy. But she still couldn't help but be worried about her. What if someone killed her before they could have found each other?
Bella didn't want something bad to happen to her.
Some part of her wanted to tell Eden that Shadi was here, that they should look for her when they're ready to head out. But she said nothing, only smiling.
It was their little miniature house for the time being, after all.
