Okay, so I definitely did have the water too hot but I guess I can't change that now. My skin is incredibly pink, it looks like all I did was stay outside and sun tan for several hours.

All I had to wear was a t-shirt and jeans so when I stepped out of the bathroom Anna immediately started freaking out when she saw my arms. Becca and Scott kind of just stared at me.

I guess I scared Anna a little when I came out of the bathroom all red like that. I used to do that to myself a lot when I was younger, I guess it was some kind of weird form of self harm or something so everyone was always worried that I was slowly losing my mind, when in reality I was just trying to avoid losing my mind.

Now, I'm still with Scott, Becca and Anna but we're walking towards the cafe to get our breakfast. Well they're walking, Becca made Scott run back and get my crutches before we left. I hate using these crutches, they make me feel even more disabled than I actually am. Anna made me put on a sweater before we left because she didn't want anyone to see my arms or anything even though the pinkness is still very evident on my face. I guess it just doesn't look good when the girl who always stutters is on crutches and looks to have a very terrible sun tan.

"I can't believe you did that again, " Anna says shaking her head pitifully at me.

"Did you used to do it a lot or something?" Becca asks looking over at me.

"Frequently enough for it to be a problem, " Anna says with disapproval laced in her voice.

"You really shouldn't do that, " Scott says looking over at me with his eyebrows drawn in. "It definitely can't be good for you."

"Since when d-do you c-care?" I ask looking back at him.

He doesn't say anything back, he just looks forward with a frown on his face and keeps walking. I don't look away from him though, I scan his face wondering how someone so annoying can have such a defined jaw line. Everything on his face just seems to come together even when he's frowning. Like the way, his eyes squint just slightly enough for his frown to look more like a smirk, but I guess you'd have to be looking closely enough to know the difference between his smirk and his frown. Like now, when he turns to look at me and his mouth turns up slightly and his eyebrows lift. That's his smirk. Wait, he's looking at me...

"Like what you see?" He asks running a hand through his already messed up hair.

"I'm n-not ev

the hell is t-that?" I ask looking back at him.

Scott immediately stops in his tracks and turns to look at me with wide eyes. And when I look back I notice that everyone except Anna is wearing the same expression Scott is: shock.

"You've never been to Palmerston?" Victor asks.

"No, " Anna says shaking her head. "Our parents never really took us many places if they didn't have to."

"You guys haven't even lived yet, " Becca says. "We need to get you two there right now."

"Let's go then, " Scott says grabbing my hand and tugging me along behind him.

Why did he grab my hand you might ask. Well hell if I know, I'm just as confused at this point. But as he pulls me along I try to ignore the tingling rush that starts in my hand then travels through my whole arm.

"W-what is P-Palmerston?" I ask again.

"Only the best amusement park slash mall slash theater slash food place in the world, " Scott says looking back at me with the most adorable childish grin on his face. "The cheeros are literally to die for."

So we all make our way over to the "twin mobile" and climb in. I'm surprised Anna's still going along with this as quietly as she has been lately. She must be trying to figure out what exactly I see in this group of people. I'm honestly still wondering that myself, I mean they just committed arson and I might as well have just went along with it. Maybe it's because I've never really had any real friends but still, they might not be the best people that I should associate with.

But just like I do everything, I go along with it. And soon enough we're on the road to Palmerston.
