Lilac enjoyed the library for its peace and tranquility. She was able to retreat to it after multiple periods of sitting in the middle of, what she would call, “Delinquent boys.” Yes, to sit on the incredibly comfortable seats and read a good book, nothing could be bett–
She jumped in her seat, launching her text book a few feet into the air. She grumbled as it landed beside her.
“MISS LILAC, MISS LILAC, MISS-”
Tansy Plaskett was interrupted by about ten students and two librarians shushing her. Loudly. She ignored them as she ran over to the startled Lilac, grabbing her hands with an excited face. Lilac didn’t have time to respond.
“I’m going to be a cheerleader!” she exclaimed, as if it were the most important news in the world – which, to Tansy, it was.
“It’s gonna be great!” she continued. “I’ll get a uniform, and pom-poms, and a matching hair bow, and I’ll get to do what I do best!”
Lilac stared at her, taking a moment to glance at the angry on-lookers.
“Which is..?” she whispered.
Tansy stood up and placed her hands on her hips, puffing her chest out in pride.
Lilac picked up her book and dusted it off. ‘This should be interesting.’
