Urgh, Sarah had run into Eden
? Anzu had to admit, she wasn't exactly broken up over Sarah not bringing her along. Life on SOTF was too short to spend being infuriated by the same assholes who annoyed you during normal school life, after all.
What was far more troublesome was Sarah's admission of breaking down. It wasn't exactly surprising, Sarah wasn't the sort of girl who would thrive on SOTF. It didn't make Anzu worry any less as her friend hurriedly tried to shift the subject. As much as Sarah tried to downplay it, it was obvious that she wasn't feeling at all good about leaving her friend behind. Shit, as much of a bitch as Eden was, Anzu would have gladly tolerated her presence if it meant that Sarah's mind was at ease.
For now, though, all Anzu could really do was play along with Sarah's happy act, and be there for Sarah when she needed her. "Heh, nice. I'm sure that with Chip at our side, things are going to go nicely for us." A far-too-chipper voice from Ashley's collar seemed to agree. Anzu gave the collar a bit of a look. What the hell was Ashley's mentor smoking
to make wasting a comment on something that inane seem like a good idea?
Well, there were far worse things the mentor could have said. At least the relieved atmosphere was still intact. Anzu turned to face both her friends. "It's getting sort of late. We should probably try to find somewhere a bit nicer to spend the night. I mean, hey, if we're lucky, we might run into Caroline or Val on the way." There wasn't any dissent, so the group made their way out into the day.
